Focusing, in general, can be pretty tough, but I find that being totally focused at work is even harder. Especially when I really need to buckle down and get a lot of work done.
I blame it on my phone and technology, but today I am not going to theorize on the impact technology has on our attention span. Instead, I want to focus on what we can do to stay focused at work every day.
These are some simple but really effective ways to stay focused and on task at work, every day. Continue reading “How to Focus at Work”
In life, we all have our own mindsets around money. Some of us hate it and think it’s the root of all evil, some of us see it as a means to get by, some of us see it abundantly, some see it as hard to get, some see it as easy to get. The list goes on and the opinions change drastically with each person.
These mindsets and beliefs around money are oftentimes rooted in our upbringing. They are mostly because of the beliefs that were instilled in us or the experiences we had with money while growing up. These beliefs differ DRASTICALLY from person to person.

Health and Wellness is extremely important to me. It has been and always will be a top priority for me in my life.
At home I have (almost) perfected my healthy habits and created a healthy environment to live in. I clean my house weekly, workout daily, have a Britta pitcher always filled with water, buy lots of fruits and vegetables, keep my pre-packaged food to a minimum and do not buy things I don’t want myself to eat, not even for a “treat”.
Your environment and habits play a huge part in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Believe it or not, it’s easy to make those changes at home. The question here today is how do we keep that up at work? The place that many of us spend more time than our actual homes. A place that you don’t own or have total control over. Continue reading “My Top 3 Healthy Work Habits”
