In the busy workplace, it’s difficult for business people to stop and take the time needed for mindful meditation. Those who practice meditation on a regular basis already know that mindfulness is a great way to unlock your potential at work and do your very best.

If you’re like most adults, you don’t get enough sleep. But how much sleep is enough?

The influx of cold weather across the country has created a bad flu season that doesn’t seem to want to go away.
The office environment is often the main offender for passing the flu virus from worker-to-worker. Although people belong at home while they’re sick, many sacrifice their health and head to work. The problem with the flu is that it’s easy to catch, but very hard to shed.
Health is key for employees that are hopping between destinations for work. Each environment brings new bugs and new people that can spread viruses.
That’s why every new advancement in disease prevention is crucial. Whether it’s your employees or yourself who’s hitting the road, new vaccines can change that business. It’s hard to work when battling some chronic and painful disease.
One of those debilitating illnesses is shingles.
