Furniture has come a long way in terms of functionality. Today, many chairs, beds and desks are specially designed to offer life-enhancing attributes to boost both your physical health and mental wellbeing. From ergonomic designs to adjustable features and built-in massage systems, here are some of the most innovative pieces of furniture that can improve your daily life:
On average, working adults are permitted to take off three "personal days" from their regular occupations to mourn the loss of their loved ones. In our fast paced, often hectic society — one which places a premium on hard work and productivity in the workplace — this time to oneself is usually deemed sufficient for making funeral arrangements, burying the dead, and mourning the loss. With the exception of offering the bereaved person some heartfelt expressions of condolence, (i.e., a sympathy card), the prevailing notion of our peers, including co-workers, members of our community, and even close friends and family is that the mourning process should be brief, rather than a long-drawn-out process. Continuing outward signs of distress are therefore deemed excessive, if not abnormal.
We've all heard that sleep plays an important role in health, and most people have suffered through the misery of a work day spent sleep-deprived. When life gets stressful, it can be easy to convince yourself that you're better served by working one more hour instead of going to bed. And while this strategy might make you feel like you're being more productive, you're not necessarily working smarter.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) emphasizes that sleep deprivation is a public health crisis. A shocking number of adults—ranging from 2% to 7%, depending on age and sex—reported to the CDC that they fell asleep while driving during the last month, and 34% to 52% of adults report accidentally falling asleep during the day.
There's strong evidence that sleep plays a vital role in memory and learning. The best thing you can do to maximize your productivity could be getting some extra shuteye.
Midlife crisis has unfortunately become the stuff of made-for-television movies. The weekly crisis of a middle-aged man leaving his wife of twenty years for a woman half his age has become almost a cultural stereotype. Sadly, the profound quality and significance of midlife crisis becomes lost in the process such that men and women in the midst of this upheaval minimize its significance.
Midlife crisis is a fundamentally spiritual event of great power. It can lead to either tremendous spiritual growth or can generate more chaos. To emerge from the dark forest of midlife crisis, we need to understand the substance of the crisis and we also need to be aware that the healthy resolution of midlife crisis brings with it a newly discovered gift. What provokes a midlife crisis? First of all, there is age.
