Plants 'talk' through fungus network

Plants 'talk' through fungus network | Team Building | Scoop.it
Researchers show that plants can communicate the need to protect themselves from attack by aphids by making use of an underground network of fungi.
CU Team & Leadership's insight:

This morning we had to throw out some turned milk in the office fridge...Gross! But turns out that bacteria and fungus can teach us a thing or two -- these microorganisms are expert communicators.

Plants have to be among the most fascinating and yet least understood life-forms on Earth. We find symbiotic relationships at every turn. Truly amazing.

AH.......maybe I need more fungi in my solarium!

Why do people presume that the feedback is likely be unfavorable?Perhaps it is the root sense that we are simply not good enough which is so persistent in our culture or perhaps the pattern of only offering feedback when we are displeased.

Stress Is Not Your Enemy

Stress Is Not Your Enemy | Team Building | Scoop.it
How often do you intentionally push yourself to discomfort? I know that sounds a little nutty, but here's why I ask: Subjecting yourself to stress is the only way to systematically get stronger — physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

 

How often do you intentionally push yourself to discomfort?

 

I know that sounds a little nutty, but here's why I ask: Subjecting yourself to stress is the only way to systematically get stronger — physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. And you'll get weaker if you don't.

 

We live by the myth that stress is the enemy in our lives. The real enemy is our failure to balance stress with intermittent rest. Push the body too hard for too long — chronic stress — and the result will indeed be burnout and breakdown. But subject the body to insufficient stress, and it will weaken and atrophy.

 

Few of us push ourselves nearly hard enough to realize our potential, nor do we rest, sleep, and renew nearly as deeply or for as long as we should.
