Most people with medium-length to long hair have a “go-to,” everyday hairstyle. To make life simpler when getting ready in the morning, you might throw your hair up into a high ponytail, a French braid or plait or a classy bun at the nape of your neck. This style works on you, you feel stylish and it’s easy to accomplish…but it might also be causing problems.
It seems like only a few weeks ago we all “fell back” for Daylight Savings. Now, we’re getting ready to “spring forward.” Given the choice between the two, most people tend to prefer falling back, since it means they get an extra hour of sleep! In fact, many people dread springing forward because it effectively means losing an hour.
Your child can’t sit still for more than 30 seconds. They’re constantly running, jumping, sliding and generally careening from surface to surface. Their energy is limitless…but yours isn’t.

Employees need to be aware of the negative effects they face while working desk jobs. For the modern employee, balancing work and personal responsibilities, trying to avoid weight gain and dealing with the effects of digital eye strain can make it difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle at work.
Sleep is a necessary component of health. After just a day or two of poor sleep, you’ll probably begin to feel irritable, unfocused or exhausted. After a week or more, your mental health might be in the dumps, you might experience short-term memory loss and your stress levels might be off the charts.
During menopause, your body goes through a lot of changes. Your hormone levels shift, which can lead to mood swings, hot flashes, insomnia, vaginal dryness, hair loss and more. For many women, this period of transitions can be extremely stressful.
Feeling unhappy at work and dealing with an unmanageable workload, routine work that doesn’t change, and difficult deadlines may be prompting you to ask, ‘Will a career change improve my wellbeing?’
