Lemons – The Key to a Healthy Workplace

Why did the lemon go to the doctor? It wasn’t peeling well.

If you’ve ever heard the term “Lemony Fresh” – you’ve definitely thought about flavoured water, delicious candy, a good joke or cleaning products.

But, what if lemon scent was more than just a reminder of being fresh and clean?

Lemon scent actually promotes concentration and has calming and clarifying properties that are helpful when you’re feeling angry, anxious or run down.

Lemon also has antiviral and antibacterial properties and can help fight sore throats and colds by boosting the body’s immune system and improving circulation.

Here at The Rostie Group we believe in keeping your mental and physical well-being in tip top condition, especially with cold season right around the corner.

Starting this fall season, The Rostie Group will be inserting lemon scents around the business centre to help promote a healthier work environment.

Your meetings in Toronto are sure to be productive; thanks to the combination of hosting your meeting on Toronto’s Waterfront and the hint of lemon zest in the air – your guests will be experiencing luxury. An enjoyable environment provides the basis for a successful meeting.

Come see (and smell) for yourself. We look forward to seeing you soon! Have a happy, healthy and lemony fall season!

Former Canadian Cabinet Minister Paul Hellyer Lunch ‘n’ Learn.

Join The Rostie Group Work Community in celebrating the Honourable Paul T. Hellyer, former Minister of National Defence. Mr. Hellyer is a Canadian engineer, politician, writer and commentator who has had a long, successful and varied career. He is the longest serving current member of the Privy Council of Canada. Mr. Hellyer is 93 years old and still a spirited member of Canadian politics and global issues.

 

In early September 2005, Hellyer made headlines by publicly announcing that he believed in the existence of UFOs. The first person of cabinet rank in the G8 group of countries to state unequivocally “UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead.”

 

Former Canadian Cabinet Minister Paul Hellyer is still as active as ever and deeply engaged in a wide variety of world issues, arguably the most urgent of which is the world monetary and financial system. Mr. Hellyer’s most recent book “The Money Mafia” (2014) exposes perceived fault lines in our banking and financial systems and explains how unemployment could be cut in half in two years and worldwide prosperity restored. Mr. Hellyer has written many books throughout his career on the world and Canadian economics, extraterrestrial life, and Canadian life.

 

Paul Hellyer has been a part of the Rostie work community for over fifteen years. He is also one of Canada’s best known and most controversial politicians. We welcome you in meeting Paul Hellyer and participating in an engaging discussion on the many projects and achievements of Mr. Hellyer’s career. Come out to our friendly Lunch ‘n’ Learn featuring Paul Hellyer on Tuesday August 30th, 2016 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Find out more about Mr. Hellyer’s fascinating and influential life and what his work means for our future.
