  • Your Family is Worth It

  • Make Single-Tasking Your #1

    Studies show that focusing and immersing yourself in one task at a time is the answer to boosting your productivity, increasing accuracy and improving your brain on a biological level. Psychologists and neurology experts call it “single-tasking” and research shows that it is better for your brain, and the outcomes of your projects, than multi-tasking. Sandra Bond Chapman, Ph.D., founder and director of Center for Brain Health at the University of Texas, Dallas describes multi-tasking as “toxic” to your brain. Dr Chapman states, “Multitasking is a brain drain t..

  • 4 Common Safety and Risk Issues for the Silly Season

    There is just so much going right now – end of school presentations, office Christmas parties, present buying, deadlines – it feels like the “Christmas rush” started in October.
