Great article from Feb, 2013 regarding the role of sleep and relaxation on productivity. Good personal thoughts and ideas for company use also.
About the role of relaxation and rest on productivity.
"Paradoxically, the best way to get more done may be to spend more time doing less. A new and growing body of multidisciplinary research shows that strategic renewal — including daytime workouts, short afternoon naps, longer sleep hours, more time away from the office and longer, more frequent vacations — boosts productivity, job performance and, of course, health."

Great, great article. I'm currently working to improve #10.
Couples can be happier now than ever before. But it’s rare.
The good news is that our marriages can flourish today like never before. They just can’t do it on their own.
"Those individuals who can invest enough time and energy in their partnership are seeing unprecedented benefits." I am grateful to be living proof of this statement.

And we have modern sensibilities to help us be our best selves within this context and the complicated culture in which we live.

How often do you try to brush it off when someone disrespects you?
Great read. I appreciate that the author has pondered and lived this topic deeply. And it is a tough one to articulate. As for me, I look to set everyone up for success. So when I stand up for myself and/or confront someone's disrespect, it for both of our sakes.
