  • 1.  Week 5 Trivia and Bonus Question - Favorite Home Remedy?

    Hey Everyone,

    Week 5 trivia will be going live shortly! This is the final round for the Trivia Tower's inaugural Summer Tournament!

    All trivia winners/finalists will be announced early next week. No specific timing just yet because the Community Team is off on Monday for the 4th of July weekend. However, I promise that you can expect the final leaderboard and winner announcement for all of the trivia events (Harry Potter, Genesys Cloud CX, and Summer Tournament) on Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Quick reminder, the winner of the Summer Tournament chooses one of the three prizes on the prize wall (the final option has not been revealed just yet), but TRUST ME these are the biggest prizes that the community has ever given away. So don't give up!

    For Harry Potter, we had a tie-breaker zoom call to figure out a winner and for the tournament and the Genesys Cloud CX popup, we'll be reaching out to finalists or sharing details on a runoff as soon as we have the information available.

    Week 5's Bonus Question is for our favorite Video Specialist Nicole! She's been out sick this week and I would love for everyone to share your favorite home remedies. What are your go-to moves for resting up and feeling better? Feel free to draw from your childhood toolbox or the new tactics you have adapted over the years as needed.

    Cheers!

    Matt

    My at home remedy has not changed since childhood when I would be sent to my grandmother's house. The key to success:

    1) Campbell's Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup (must be homestyle)
    2) Watch "The Price is Right"
    3) Nap, don't move from couch, give grandmother signs of life on occasion.

    The one thing that I have started doing as an adult and it DOES make a huge difference: Tea with Honey or just spoonfuls of honey. It expedites me getting over throat discomfort and makes me feel better than throat lozenges.

    Hope you feel better @Nicole Milliken! I hope everyone enjoys the weekend coming up. We'll leave the week 5 questions up until we start pulling the leaderboard early next week.

    Cheers,

    Walking around the neighborhood in the sun and listening to a good book gets me out of the house and active so I can recover more quickly.

    Margaritas (no more than 2) in the Texas sun by the pool.  Make sure you have plenty of sunscreen on for when you fall asleep on the chaise lounge with your drink in your hand.  Also, don't use a glass, use a plastic or paper cup!

    The sun makes you feel better, the Margaritas are just for fun!

    I told Nicole that if she needs to drink a margarita (or two) to test this theory, she has my blessing.

    Luckily I haven't been in that situation recently, but for me routine for such situation usually is:
    • As a tea lover, drinking a lot of those
    • Homemade lemonade with honey
    • Watching sport and music documentaries
    • Some yoga for muscle stiffness
    But it always take a time as a most important ingredient for recovery
