Small Touches Can Make A Huge Difference

When rearranging your living space:

  • Consider the colour. Blues create calm while greens encourage creativity.
  • Bring in nostalgia with old objects that can remind you about what's important to you. Rotate the objects regularly if your space feels cluttered.

  • Another problem is overfocusing. Unfocusing - purposefully letting your mind wander - is key to improving focus. The brain works best when we toggle between focus and unfocus.

Good apology or No apology
  • Most of us haven't been taught how to apologise
  • Our efforts tend to be harmful: vague, intrusive, demanding, or full of warnings that can leave the recipient of an apology feeling even worse.
  • When the apology is absent or it's a bad apology, it puts a crack in the very foundation of a relationship and can even end it.
  • That's why it is critical to get an apology right.
