10 Tips to Develop Both Sides of Your Brain

Each side of the brain performs certain functions. The right side focuses on the visuals and the “big picture” of something and is the side from which creative thought springs, while the left brain is the linear, detail-oriented, and logical part. Many people do tend to have a left or right brain dominance, a factor, for example, in what they might choose for their life’s work. Thus, the artist would never consider accounting for a career, and vice versa. The brain works best, however, when both sides are activated and involved in learning and activities. When both sides are engaged, neural connections are made that allow them to work together better in the future. Here are 10 simple exercises anyone can do that will improve […]

You Need Self Awareness For These 3 Important Reasons

Ever heard the saying – What you don’t know won’t hurt you? Well, that’s both false and misleading.  In reality, what you don’t know will hurt you.

The outcome of that scenario is death, or the unfortunate result of not being able to walk ever again. What if as a kid is growing up, they’re not educated on the repercussions of stealing? You can already see where I’m going with this. Self awareness works in the exact same way.
