Take a Deep Breath

I think of myself as a pretty focused individual and one who often talks with colleagues and friends about how we are the only ones who can make ourselves happy.  It is our own reaction to other people that determines if we are happy or upset or angry! It is not what the other person has done . . . it is only our reaction. You and you alone control your internal feelings and reactions. So why do we still get upset or react negatively to someone?

Eat Greener, be Greener!

Many of us are becoming more aware of ways to become sustainable. Choosing reusable instead of disposable, finding new uses for old things, recycling and buying recycled products, reducing waste, but do you ever think of eating more veggies as a way to be greener? A plant-based diet helps aid in maintaining or regaining your health. I never really thought further than how it was good for my personal health. What about the health of our planet? A diet sourcing only plant-based protein requires far fewer resources to sustain someone than a diet heavy in animal products.

Slowing Down

I am always wondering how technology (more specifically smartphones, social media and email) affects us. I read a number of articles on the subject and many address multitasking and the affects it has on stress levels and our ability to focus. As well as how we use our memory when relying on technology. Research reported in a Scienceline article "A mindless future" says people who multitask (working while checking emails & surfing the web) are more stressed, more distracted and they cannot recall much of the information they just had in front of them.
