Feeling underestimated

Many of us can feel underestimated. You're excellent at work, but you may not be paid your worth, or your potential is not acknowledged. Your parents can't believe you made the dean's List. Some of your friends are surprised when you meet someone great.

Travelling Solo

Travelling alone can be the ultimate in self-indulgence: You can do what you want to do and rest when you want. Your mistakes are your own, and your triumphs are more exciting.

Good levels of dopamine in your prefrontal cortex are critical for focusing.

Positive expectations increase dopamine levels in the brain, and these increased levels make you more able to focus. Teachers know that children learn best when they are interested in a subject.

There are six basic emotions
