Free Up Your Mind To Be More Productive

Sometimes you just need to free up your mind, think about nothing, and just relax. But how often do we get to do this, seriously? Our mind is never free, simply because we’re always so busy thinking about the next thing. As soon as we wake up, we’re thinking about the terrible day at work we’re about to have especially if there is a tight deadline for you.

Then we’re thinking about the house that we’re going to have to come home to clean. Then we’re thinking about the prep that we’re going to have to do for the next morning, just so that we’re not rushing around in the morning.

Now, that’s just thinking about what we actually have to do in a day. That does not account for all of the wild thoughts that are running through our minds, every single day. The thoughts of random scenarios, holiday’s, relationship problems. It’s just one constant monologue in our minds, and it seems almost impossible to shut it out. But that’s only because you’re seriously not trying.

An Effective Guide to Taking a Sabbatical from your Business/ Work

There are times in life when you just need a break.

If you have been working on your business for years, forgoing holiday celebrations and vacations in favor of pursuing your business goals, then there’s a good chance you’re long overdue a break.

7 Activities to help Relieve Stress at Work during Lunch Break

Everyone gets to deal with stress at work at some point or the other. A tight deadline to meet. An appointment to keep. An important decision to make and not wanting to make a decision that ‘haunts’ you.

Work related stress can take a toll on your health because, unfortunately, you may be unable to drop the stress at work and head back home. It just doesn’t happen that way, these things are psychological.

Chronic stress can result in insomnia, high blood pressure, anxiety, and a possibly weakened immune system. It can also contribute to health conditions such as depression, obesity, and heart disease.

Food Hack: The Perfect Homemade Burgers for Work

When I created the relaxation category, what I had in mind was to create a space where we could discuss non-work related stuff and find ways to ease the stress in our personal lives.

It was to be some sort of place for us to gist whilst learning one or two things. Just to have a relaxed space on the blog, you know? We have to let our hair down every once in a while, or what do you think?

Another Weekend, Another Recipe

Happy Friday to you!

Most people look up to Friday because it’s the start of the weekend and they get to relax, of course depending on the type of job you do. This Friday particularly, I am so excited because this week has been the longest. Gosh! It’s actually funny because we had a public holiday last Monday, and I was off work on Tuesday and Wednesday so I am a bit confused myself. I guess sometimes we just want to rest all day, and when we do that to the extreme, we just can’t wait to get back to work. Sigh. Human wants are insatiable.
