Sleep hacks of successful entrepreneurs

November 15, 2018

In today’s American work culture of 70-hour workweeks, sleeplessness is a badge of honor. Waking up in the wee hours just thinking about work or attending 4 am tennis/golf matches with big names in the industry have become the norm.

This fast-paced, always-online-and-connected world of entrepreneurs and executives on the go has taken sleep for granted.

5 vitamins that are good for your brain

5 vitamins that are good for your brain

October 25, 2018

Let’s play a mini Hollywood quiz here.

What do the movies “Limitless” and “Lucy" have in common?

Aside from having A-listers headlining them, both movies feature the main characters ingesting certain substances that allow them to have a superhuman brain! The substances help them actively use a massive portion of their brain and achieve an out-of-this-world cognitive function.

Of course, these are pure fiction (for now maybe) and it would take a Black Mirror-like dystopia for us to experience it ourselves.

But while an almost 100% brain function is still in the realm of sci-fi, achieving optimal cognitive function like attention, memory, reasoning, and learning languages is already possible.

Whether you want to learn faster, avoid Alzheimer’s disease, or simply win those memory card games (or mini quizzes like that one), you can boost focus, memory, and mental clarity.

All thanks to vitamins.

Certain vitamins have been said to boost memory. And this article will cover just that.

For a healthier brain, here are the top 8 vitamins that you should take stat!

How to sleep better: 6 easy things you can do today

October 22, 2018

10:00 PM. It’s bedtime. After a warm bath, you retreat to your favorite warm linen that smells as fresh as summertime. You lay down your comfortable bed and tuck yourself under the sheets. You turn off your bedside lamp before closing your eyes, ready to surrender yourself to REM.

Thoughts start to run wild. Ideas jump in. You remember something you forgot to do this morning. You recall some gossip your colleague told you. You feel a strong urge to check Instagram and see if it’s true. It’s like your mind is suddenly running a marathon, but your body is too tired from the marathon of meetings it has just gone through.

You try to get rid of thoughts. Hard. Eyes still shut, except that you also feel your eyes blinking, albeit lids closed.

You give up and open your eyes. What’s the time?

10:02 PM.

And in the quiet of your dark, comfortable room, you hear yourself say…

“Not again.”

Dehydration: causes, signs and symptoms

Dehydration: causes, signs and symptoms

October 18, 2018 1 Comment

Dehydration is probably one of the most overlooked conditions that doesn’t get a lot of medical attention.  After all, it’s normal to get thirsty, right?

But it’s more than just getting thirsty.

In fact, thirst isn’t always the best way to tell whether you’re dehydrated or not. Some people suffering from it don’t realize they are, until symptoms manifest. Hence, it’s important to keep yourself hydrated at all times, but more so during hot weather or when you’re sick.

According to WebMD: [1]

Dehydration happens when your body doesn't have as much water as it needs. Without enough, your body can't function properly. You can have mild, moderate, or severe dehydration depending on how much fluid is missing from your body.

Symptoms for dehydration range from mild discomfort to severe conditions such as “blood clots, seizures, and other potentially fatal complications. [2]

It’s our crowning glory.

Hair can totally change how a person looks, from one style to another. It’s such an important part of our look that many people are so invested in maintaining great-looking hair - or losing it. (Just ask the hair and waxing salons!)
