So when you shared the video with your friends, they were three times as likely to click and share it with their friends. And those people were three times as likely to click and share. Like The Second City, Upworthy turned its work into rapid, scientific experiments. It turned tiny failures into depersonalized feedback and created an environment where total failure was nearly impossible. The fight-flight-freeze response is automatic - we do it without thinking. It's something we share with animals, and it makes us react immediately to danger without even thinking about it. When faced with a real or imaginary threat, we often feel like our power has been taken away from us. To get our power back, we react in one of these three ways: Fight: we might get angry, shout, or lash out. This is our way of controlling the threat. Flight: we might run away or avoid situations. This is our way of controlling what's around us. Freeze: we might go stiff and feel like our bodies can't move, or that we can't think clearly because our minds have gone blank. This is our way of controlling ourselves. In an episode of the Lead to Win podcast, Self-care as a leadership discipline', leadership expert Michael Hyatt describes self-care asthe activities that make for a meaningful life outside of work, while contributing to better performance at work'. Jim Loehr, co-author of The Power of Full Engagement, says, Productivity is less about managing your time and more about managing your energy'. <a href=''>It</a> doesn't matter how much you master any of the Laws in this article; <a href=''>This</a> is the essence of Law 2. <a href=''>Law</a> 2 means you must address three facets: <a href=''>So</a> that's exactly what we'll do next. <br /><br /><a href=''>In</a> the 1940s, the record for running a mile was 4:01 minutes. <a href=''>But</a> it hadn't budged for years. <a href=''>Some</a> doctors and scientists said it was physically impossible to run a mile in less than four minutes. <a href=''>Not</a> just hard, or dangerous, but impossible. <a href=''>Movements:</a> Assume a sitting posture, placing your right hand on the precordium, with the center of your right palm on the left nipple and the middle finger on the Jiquan point, then place your left hand on top of your right hand. <a href=''>Turn</a> your body from left to right while using the he breathing technique to exhale. <a href=''>At</a> the same time, push down heavily with both hands, and press the projection area of the mitral valve (located between the 3rd and 4th ribs) hard with the thenar eminence of your right hand, simultaneously pressing the Jiquan point with your middle finger. <a href=''>After</a> the exhalation is complete, turn your body to the right and straighten your back, pushing up the tip of your heart (located at the intersection of the 5th rib and the vertical line starting from the middle point of the left clavicle), with the antithenar eminence of your right hand while inhaling. <a href=''>Repeat</a> this set of movements for as many times as you like. <a href=''>Using</a> the Hu Breathing Technique to Exhale <a href=''>This</a> technique benefits the spleen and stomach. <a href=''>Movements:</a> Sit cross-legged in a natural position, clasping your hands over your stomach, and inhale. <a href=''>Raise</a> your hands to the chest and push them outward in front of you, using the hu breathing technique to exhale simultaneously. <a href=''>Complete</a> the exhalation when your hands have reached their maximum extension. <a href=''>I</a> wonder if you may notice your breath moving down into your belly as it does when the subconscious begins to take over. <a href=''>That's</a> an indication that you're more relaxed. <a href=''>As</a> the breath slows, the mind calms. <a href=''>I</a> wonder if you can actually feel a sense of the body moving down. <a href=''>And</a> as you do, you're becoming more calm and comfortable. <a href=''>Perhaps</a> noticing now how this relaxation may help you to let go of any tightness in your body. <br /><br /><a href=''>And</a> as that happens, your mind easily lets go of any remnants of conscious thought or worry. <a href=''>That's</a> right. <a href=''>Even</a> deeper now. <a href=''>It's</a> almost as if, with every floor you descend, you become two or even three times more relaxed and comfortable than you were on the floor before. <a href=''>However,</a> in their illegal, recreational form, they appear on the market as speed, crystal meth, uppers, whiz and so on. <a href=''>Apart</a> from the fact that the law strictly prohibits the use of amphetamines outside clinical practice, these drugs have absolutely no place in the life of someone who is trying to improve the quality of their sleep. <a href=''>They</a> increase heart and breathing rate, alertness and restlessness. <a href=''>Long-term</a> use not only leads to insomnia, but possibly to permanent damage of the brain's cells. <a href='<=6&dest='>If</a> you do need to cut down on your caffeine intake, do so gradually, reducing the number of cups you have each day by one until your intake is no longer affecting your sleep. <a href=''>Going</a> cold turkey (stopping suddenly) can cause withdrawal symptoms - including insomnia. <a href=''>Other</a> stimulants <a href=''>Caffeine</a> is not the only stimulant in common circulation. <a href=''>It's</a> estimated that around 20 percent of adult Americans smoke tobacco. <a href=''>The</a> nicotine in tobacco is a powerful stimulant with an effect similar to alcohol: it reduces the amount of restorative deep sleep we get during the night. <a href=''>Even</a> when many of us have cheerfully hopped on board the decluttering bus, we're pulling the emergency cord and begging to jump off at the first mention of casting out our articles. <a href=''>Why</a> is that? <a href=''>Why</a> are they so much more emotionally loaded than our other possessions, and why are we so resistant to even considering them clutter? <a href=''>A</a> few years ago, our friends Denise and Vicky needed to make room in their flat for their new business, so they sold or donated thousands of their articles, leaving only a dozen or so hefty art articles on a sturdy shelf. <a href=''>I</a> was surprised at how shocked I was at this revolutionary act against middle-class values, but then I was Camus-flage Girl. <a href=''>Vicky,</a> who is one of the calmest people you'll ever meet - the sort of person you'd want next to you in the bunker - explained,We needed the space more than we needed the articles.

If I ever want to read any of them again, I can just buy them or download them. Most of us buy far more articles than we will ever read, and often the ones we leave languishing on the shelf are those that, deep down, we bought to reflect the kind of person we think we ought to be. There's no ought'. <a href=''>Live</a> your own life, not a pale imitation of someone else's (scoop: they're probably not living that life either). <a href=''>These</a> observations and conclusions were arrived at in the same way as the earlier articles, through blending experience, logic, and intuition. <a href=''>I've</a> found throughout my life that by holding on to questions long enough, particularly ones that doubled me over in angst or awe, the answers I sought inevitably arrived. <a href=''>Here,</a> again, my ideas are not unique; <a href=''>Good</a> God almighty. <a href=''>In</a> all battles between the heart and mind, <a href=''>For</a> truly, it's a lot easier for your mind <a href=''>Step</a> one for changing the entire world is <a href=''>Same</a> for changing yourself. <a href=''>Sometimes</a> a lack of clarity, <a href=''>The</a> older the soul, the softer the glance, <a href=''>This</a> is something of a yoga trend that many old yoga texts never appear to be composed by just one author. <a href=''>What</a> is the traditional view on Patanjali? <a href=''>S</a> Iyengar (1918 - 2014) the great yoga teacher from Pune, India said, Patanjali, of whom you will hear much in this article (Light on Life), is considered the father of yoga. <a href=''>In</a> reality, as far as we know, he was a yogi and a polymath (a person of wide knowledge or learning) living around fifth century BC India, who collated and elaborated existing knowledge of the yogis' life and practices. <a href=''>He</a> wrote the Yoga Sutras, literally a thread of aphorisms about yoga, consciousness, and the human condition. <a href=''>What</a> Patanjali said applies to me and will apply to you. <br /><br /><a href=''>He</a> wrote,With this truth bearing light will begin a new life. Old unwanted impressions are discarded, and we are protected from the damaging effects of new experiences' (Yoga Sutras, article I, Verse 50)6.

It is one man's work. Checking my article sales, Going on Facearticle, Monitoring my article ads, Reading my emails, and Watching a video on YouTube. By batching these activities together, I can limit distractions and remain focused on my key tasks. A mere ten to fifteen minutes spent on these activities is usually not enough to move me out of a focused state. Key characteristics of activities with a strong potential for distraction To help you identify activities that can kill your focus, let's look at some of their key characteristics: They are highly stimulating. Once people understood this as an issue of intellectual diversity instead of irresponsibility, we worked with each department to discover how they needed information presented. Some departments preferred spreadsheets and wanted bullet points to highlight key data. Other departments requested graphs that tracked financials over time, with color-coded bars so they could quickly compare data. The solution wasn't a change in software, management, or training procedures. What was needed was the simple awareness that what worked for some people didn't necessarily work for others. The teams started to tailor the way they presented their information, and as a result, the tension between departments was greatly reduced.
