How To Stay Motivated And Energized When Working Long Hours

In today’s world, it has become normal for many people to work after hours and not get enough sleep as a result. While most people would tell you to simply stop working overtime and go to sleep at a reasonable hour, that is not always feasible. If you are tired of feeling drained, there are a few things you can do to combat this feeling.

Take some “me” time.

With a busy schedule, it can be hard to take time for yourself. It is important to establish this as a priority. During these sessions, you need to focus on what helps you relax. You may want to try some meditation or yoga to help relieve the stress. Make an effort to call a friend or family member on your way home. Even something this small can give you a small energy boost.

Sriracha Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Sriracha Buffalo Cauliflower Bites | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvest

First the cauliflower gets rolled in a little breading, then it’s off to the oven to be baked to perfection. Once they’ve finished baking they get covered in the BEST sriracha buffalo sauce. Honestly, you will not even realize you are eating cauliflower. All you will realize is that it’s so dang good. I think these bites may be one of my dad’s favorites. He and I both loved them, especially when dipped in that blue cheese sauce (YUM, and it’s made healthier with Greek yogurt!). There really are no words.

What To Know If You Love Someone With High-Functioning Anxiety

When someone you love has high-functioning anxiety, it isn’t always obvious. And success in life ― whether recognition at work or, say, being particularly sparkly at a party ― doesn’t mean he or she isn’t dealing with something internally.

While those living with the condition are dealing with debilitating side effects, they hide it well ― even from their loved ones or significant others. People who struggle with the disorder often experience excessive worry and panic, headaches and more.

As with any mental health condition, the more people know about it, the better. Education is critical when it comes to erasing stigma ― and less stigma could mean more people with disorders will reach out for help. Research shows negative stereotypes often prevent people with mental health issues from seeking treatment.

We asked our Facebook communities to share what they want their partners and families to know about high-functioning anxiety as a way to shine a light on the condition. Below are some things to keep in mind if you love someone who is dealing with it:

1. Routine tasks can feel impossible.

“Some daily activities that may seem easy for them are not for me. Shopping, going to the post office, school, etc. It’s not easy and sometimes there are days that I can’t fake it and pretend that my anxiety isn’t out of control.” ―Sabrina Campbell

Our Journey with CBD Oil

Our Journey with CBD Oil

My husband and I are huge believers in medicinal marijuana and want to share our story in hopes that it might help another family. We are be no means experts in this area, but connecting with other cannabis families is important as so much of the process is all on the parents.

Our little guy (who has just turned 3) was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was about 6 months old and has been taking a variety of seizure medications ever since. For the first month of his diagnosis he was on and off different medications until the doctor finally found a combination that worked for him. And that medication is still working for him two and a half years later.  There are some amazing ways these oils are changing children’s lives everywhere. His story isn’t quite like the others, but they have changed his life nonetheless.

The Best and Worst Blunt Wrappers: A Definitive (and Completely Subjective) Ranking

Blunts. You like blunts, I like blunts, Rihanna likes blunts. We all like blunts. In fact, I like them so much that one day I was smoking a Swisher Sweet full of some Chemdawg when I asked myself which blunt wrap is the best. Even though I knew the answer was the one I was holding, I couldn’t really make that call until I tried each type that I could get my hands on. Next thing you know, I’m driving all over the city picking up a pack of every single wrap behind every single counter until I had eight or nine different types.

12 Tricks To Rest, Restore And Grow Your Brain On Vacation

It may come as no surprise that travel is also associated with mental health and happiness: While the wrong type of trip can leave you more stressed and frazzled than before, the right kind has the potential to grow your brain, help you find more meaning in life and provide memories that will give you happiness boosts for years to come.

Here’s how to take (and return from!) a trip that delivers the most mental bang for your buck.

1. Plan early and often. 

Research shows travel’s biggest happiness boost comes not from trips themselves, but from the excitement of planning beforehand. However, one small study confirmed that some people feel more stressed than usual the week before vacation, due to mounting strain at work and home before they leave.
