Hey, you should read these!

Well, it’s been quite awhile but I’m finally sharing some more published articles from the past few weeks. I was watching my inbox fill up with all of these links I sent myself to share in a future post and it was driving me nuts! A cluttered inbox motivates me to post more often. It’s a sick mind game, really…Anyways, enjoy the articles! I tried to separate them by topic to help you find ones you may be interested more than others.


10 Habits of Successful People from Lifehack. Traits seen in successful individuals, do you have any of these?

Videos to help you with public speaking…there are 8 videos included in this TED Talks series. Even watching one of them will give you some tips & tricks on getting over that stage freight!

A TED Talks intern shares what they learned after watching every TED video….  After reading this, I’m going to just keep on asking questions, no matter how annoyed my friends & family get 😉

How to Look for Emotional Intelligence on Your Team from HBR. Is emotional intelligence the new popular term or what? I keep seeing it everywhere in business articles. Are you familiar with it?

TED Talks: Cognitive Surplus and its effects video

Ways to Create Your Own Happiness at Work. I found this article through my Flipboard app. If you don’t have the app, I highly suggest you get it!

Food & Nutrition:

Can you eat TOO healthy? Can healthy eating become an eating disorder? The answer is yes. It breaks my heart how people have taken healthy eating to an extreme and experience a new-er eating disorder, orthorexia. It’s just as bad as any other one. Read more about the healthy eating disorder, Orthorexia, here.

When somebody loses weight, where does the fat go?-BMJ article Before you read the link, where do you think fat goes?

Brown Fat Injections Reverse Weight Gain in Obese Mice-MedPage Today.  Have you heard of brown fat?


Work-Based Wellness Programs Can Reduce Employee Obesity from HealthiestBlog. I love reading more and more of these studies that are coming out. Lifestyle change and adaptation to a healthier life takes time and plus, health really is not as quantifiable as the “big guys” in administration need it to be to prove its impact. For example, how can you measure that someone is less stressed? That they are more organized? Happier at home? It’s difficult, but we’re working on finding ways to prove (numerically)  these changes are beneficial to employers & communities.

And last but not least…

All my friends and family know how much I love writing cards, especially around the holidays. This year I found these cheap pills at Target that turn into creatures when you put them in water. That was a fun holiday-card gift. Anyways, my followers may know how big of a fan I am of Dan Simm’s Irrational Living LLC blog so while I was writing a few cards out to my friends, I wrote him one to thank him for his daily motivation & education. He was really grateful for the card and wrote a post about Thanking People here. I’m really grateful for his shout out. I think it’s time for another round of thank you cards!

Thank you for reading another link-filled post. Let me know if you ever want me to write about a specific topic! I’m always thinking of new topics to write about but I want to hear from YOU, the reader, first.
