Therefore, if we allow fatigue to build up and wear us out, this increases the likelihood of injury and illness. For instance, a fatigued immune system can’t fight against infection. Fatigued joints and muscles can’t support physical exertion. Expecting to thrive while neglecting rest is equivalent to driving a car at

Being able to budget isn’t just necessary to govern a business, it’s also beneficial to the selection of individual operational investments or projects. Without a structured budgeting process, there’s no reliable method for

Life is getting more complicated by the minute. There’s so much information to process these days that it’s easy to lose track of everything we’re supposed to know. This essentially means that having a good memory is a skill that is integral to survival in the information age. However, have you ever stopped to think about what memory is, and how it develops?

Being a rounded leader is a skill that demands respectability. The people who depend on a leader need a role model who can demonstrate strong and admirable values. Often when people find themselves assuming positions of leadership, they develop a mindset of entitlement which gets in the way of their good intentions. This entitlement is responsible for the majority of bad habits that diminish the authority that comes with leadership. When leaders become entitled, they easily lose sight of the greater good. It takes a lot of work to stay grounded and remember the fact that good leaders should set

Studies estimate that over 80 percent of people experience lower back pain in varying intensities throughout the course of their lives. Whether due to injury or natural aging, back pain is a typical condition for many, and it can worsen if not treated in good time by a physician. However, because of the prevailing assumption that back pain is related to aging, kids who suffer from back pain are often overlooked until their symptoms become extreme.
