We are living in a time that continues to have heightened tensions, personal attacks, and an openness to express hatred. Many of these acts are targeted towards our families, friends, co-workers and us.
Social media is a common vehicle where a lot of negatively and attacks can occur that impact all of us. We must continue to be mindful of how our own actions and words, intentional or not, are impacting others. Empathy is something very important to keep in mind.
Think about what you do and say and how it will impact friends and family. We all make mistakes that are often unintentional. The key is to try to be more aware and improve. Let’s build instead of demolishing, let’s praise instead of criticizing, and lets value differences instead of making comparisons. Encourage and empower each person you encounter every day.

Kindness is something we need to be practicing no matter what, no matter who, no matter where. Friends, family, co-workers, and strangers alike, we are all in this together. Showing kindness is the easiest thing to do.
Say hello, make eye contact with others, ask someone how their day was. For anyone struggling with negative thoughts about themselves or experiencing a crisis, it may be just what they need at the time. Remember, a few minutes of kindness may ease others pain. It gives them the message you care and are connected. And it shows them they are important to others.

In the fast-paced world that we live in today, making it a priority to take breaks during the work day is that much more important. A study was done with university students that required a test of sustained attention. One group received no break during the 45-minute task, while the other participants were allowed a 5 minute break and were randomly assigned to either sitting quietly, listening to music, watching a music video, choosing between the music or the video, or spending the break however they wished. Results suggest that no matter which type of break they were given, all students in the break groups performed better on the attention task than those who kept working through without a break.
From the research, it is clear that breaks are beneficial, but the ideal break and how to fit it into one’s day will differ for each person. Even though all of our work schedules are busy and it often feels like tasks are never ending, working through lunch or after hours does not seem to actually have long-term benefits (even if you feel you will get more work completed). Research suggests that not taking breaks has detrimental effects to our psychological health and satisfaction. Therefore, it is important to take the time to enjoy small breaks throughout the day, especially lunch, as work will always be waiting for you when you return.
