Give your brain a break!

Confused? Muddled? Giving your brain a five minute break will ‘reboot’ your thinking processes and increase performance and productivity by over 50%.

The biology of victimhood

Anger can damage relationships and your own peace of mind. Chronic anger is one of the biggest predictors of early death through heart disease — even more than chronic smoking!
