It is that time of year. Everyone is running around like a turkey with its’ head chopped off. SO. MUCH. IS. GOING. ON. Even if you don’t have “stress at the workplace”, this infographic touches upon some things that everyone can apply to their own lives, no matter the producer. Let’s face it—everyone has stress in their life. Hopefully this infographic will enable you to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It can be incredibly hard at times, even with the right management.
I read an article about a study evaluating the different forms of stress management for one of my social work classes. The study within the article brought up four different ways of managing stress: 1) source management, 2) relaxation, 3) thought management, and 4) prevention (Epstein, 32). Through the study conducted, the researchers were able to conclude that “the…study showed clearly that prevention is by far the most helpful competency when it comes to managing stress” (Epstein, 34).
So, although things like yoga and acupuncture help to lighten the load, avoiding stress in the first place is the number one way to deter the bad feelings and physical harm caused by it. We must practice self-care. This will enable us to further help others.

I must confess i have re-read this several times and while I recongnise that all that is written is true and don’t believe that life post 40 has to be a decline. Certainly it can get a little harder to get up in the morning and the back twinges a little more than normal. But 40+ is the time to reinvent yourself and grow into the businessperson you will spend the 2nd half of your career being. I for one (currently 42) have spent the last couple of years really growing and improving myself and using the power of 360 degree appraisals this has been evidenced in me interactions and I have to say business performance in these difficult times, which has been great.
So don’t accept the inevitable, look at who you are, let that shine through and people will want to go on the journey you’d like them to follow you on!
So here’s a pretty cool infographic for ya’ll, Lucky and Unlucky Numbers Around the World. Like the title suggest today’s infographic looks at the different unlucky numbers in various cultures around the world. Admittedly I am not very superstitious although I certainly try to not do things that may bring me bad luck. Here in the United States along with the UK, France, and the Netherland we consider the number seven to be lucky, why? Well like many other things in American culture this has religious roots coming from God making the universe in 7 days and the 7 deadly sins. However it also references the 7 wonders of the ancient world as well as the 7 planets of the ancient world.
A number popping up around the world is the number three, considered to be the perfect number. It even has a saying “all good things come in threes.” There is the triangle which is considered to be an indestructible shape and again we have the biblical reference to the trinity.
For the record my lucky number is 42. Those of you who know, hi Froods! Those of you who do note, I suggest you click here and discover!
To be honest, this is really simple….tax is going down on successful companies and people. Although lets face it, tax has been going up for the better off for 4 years now
The key question is why is this good and the answer to that is simple also.
Companies (and well paid people) invest in the world around them. OK, sometimes they spend some of their wealth on things that make themselves comfortable, but that is just investing in the economy really. But most of the time they invest in resources, people, objects, schemes that are designed to create value, partly for the investor but mostly for the people who rely on this for jobs, overtime, sales etc….
I am pleased that tax is coming down, though personally again the Government have taken away with a different hand what they will have given with the tax hand, such is the way of the world. The key thing is that people will now invest a bit more in the world around them…..
…..and that is a good thing!
Off to watch the beach volleyball!
Unemployment has risen to 8.4%, the highest it’s ever been since 1995. Inflation is high as well, having risen 6.3%, taking the average household expenditure up with it.
The infographic gives helpful tips in the realm of saving money on the everyday essentials. Some friendly advice includes having your car consistently serviced and in good health, helpful information on optimal home upkeep, and even food and recreational guidelines to help you live in a crippled economy. Give it a read, I know we all can use a few helpful tips from time to time.
Today’s infographic takes a look at work related stress and the impact it can have on a person’s day to day life. It states heart disease, depression, stroke, and sleep trouble can all start with high stress levels. Anything from a heavy workload to worrying about your job security can have you wound tighter than a two dollar watch.
One in four workers believe they work in a stressful environment. Listed in the top ten most stressful jobs include commercial pilot, public relations officer, and senior corporate executive. This infographic isn’t complete gloom and doom. It also list ways to improve your work environment, ending the feeling of impending death when you cross the threshold of the workplace. I know it can be hard to be “that” guy, but it could potentially save your life.
I thought I would present you all with an infographic on a subject I am well versed in. Just kidding, I am a young(ish), soon to be married man who’s just made the perfect proposal! Regardless, this infographic will prepare me for my future years should a proposal situation arise. I think the hardest part will be keeping my awesome proposal plan a secret when the time comes. After all, fifty percent of men say it’s the biggest proposal bust.

Health, while important, is easily shoved to the back burner. Convenience is frequently chosen over health, which is why fast food chains have continued to be a popular choice for meals. Films such as Super Size Me and many other food related documentaries on Netflix have to offer, people should be inspired to eat better and keep their health in check.
Across countries, whole grains are considered to be the top healthy food, and is consistently in the top three health food purchased by region. Other popular health foods are yogurt, iodine enhanced salt and low cholesterol butter or margarine. World inhabitants looking to loose weight are quick to change their diet, which is important for weight loss, and is followed by exercise. And while over 50% of the world percieves themselves to be over weight, the highest percentage is in North America. North Americans need to change their diet, start exercising and begin to see themselves more positively.
