Do You Eat Pie on Pi Day? And How Much PTO Do You Have?
Asana Recovery Weekly Team Update March 13, 2023
Daylight Saving Time
I hope you remembered to turn your clock an hour ahead on Sunday, 3/12. Just a friendly reminder that we have "sprung forward" with Daylight Saving Time. While losing an hour of sleep might not be the most enjoyable experience, DST does offer longer daylight hours in the evening, which can be great for outdoor activities and energy conservation. Mornings may be a bit darker for a little while, but hopefully, we'll adjust soon! To help kickstart your week, here’s a free coffee on us!
This is a shared card, so once the card runs out of funds, it's out of funds. So let's spread the love and make sure everyone gets a chance to enjoy a cup of joe. Have a great day and don’t forget, YOU are strong like coffee!
Happy Pi Day!
March 14 marks Pi Day, an annual celebration of the mathematical sign Pi. Founded in 1988 by physicist Larry Shaw, March 14 was selected because the numerical date (3.14) represents the first three digits of pi and it is also Albert Einstein’s birthday. Let your Pi Day celebrations revolve around one of the great mathematicians/scientists of all time!
Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

New Hire Spotlight
Brittany Cooper, a new Behavioral Health Technician at Asana Recovery, became interested in the recovery field after experiencing how addiction affected people in her own family. She joined Asana Recovery to “help those in recovery get an opportunity to have a better life,” she says.
Brittany is fluent in Spanish after studying the language and different Hispanic cultures for six years. Currently enrolled in college, Brittany is studying in the respiratory care program at Orange Coast College and is scheduled to graduate next year.
When she’s not working or studying for her degree, Brittany enjoys traveling and spending time with her family- her son who is about to turn two. She also loves iced coffee and rainy days.
