Thanks again for all from the FHWA DelMar Office and the other agencies in the City Crescent Building who were able to go with Young Government Leaders (YGL) to volunteer at the Maryland Food Bank on April 20th! We got to meet a lot of other civic-minded federal employees, and like-minded citizens who also volunteered that day. Boxes were made and food was sorted over a four-hour period that was very productive and saved a lot of money for the charitable organization!
Feel free to take a look at the photos and short video clips to see what you may have missed:

Take Time to Unwind...
...relax, renew, and rejuvenate!
When stress has you in knots, a great way to unwind is a quick and simple meditation. Go to FOH’s Stress Awareness Page to find some easy to follow instructions on how to meditate. There’s also some tips on deep relaxation and a 3-minute video relaxation experience.
So whether you re-invigorate yourself with meditation, deep relaxation, reading, playing the guitar, jogging, laughing with a friend, or playing with a pet, for your health’s sake, make sure you tackle your stress head-on and… take time for yourself—take time to unwind!
If you find that stress is becoming overwhelming for you, get help from your Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Check your agency’s intranet or speak to someone in your HR department to get contact information for EAP.
