Burnout: The Definition

Burnout is a consequence of chronic workplace stress due to exhaustion, energy depletion, increased cynicism about the profile and professional unproductivity. It is not an individual problem, but an organizational concern.

An employee feels burnt out when there is constant pressure to perform more alongside chronic job insecurity. Personal needs take a backseat due to the fear of disappointing the boss or colleagues.

The Keto Diet

The Keto diet, which is low on carbs and high on fats, is restrictive, especially when most people follow the processed food diet which is high on carbs.

It requires the individual to throw away carbs, junk food, sauces, cold drinks, and starchy veggies while limiting fruit intake.

There is more to pain than just injury

Many people think that pain is the result of injury or damage to tissue. The reason for that is that pain warns us whenever we're experiencing tissue damage or are about to.

But there is more to pain. Our perception of pain is constructed from sensory information and context - our circumstance, needs, motivations, who we're with, and our expectations. This means that pain is more malleable and manageable than we think.

Dopamine Functions

Dopamine is an important chemical messenger that plays several important roles in the brain and body:

  • It influences moods and feelings of reward and motivation: When  released in large amounts, it creates feelings of pleasure and reward, which motivates you to repeat a specific behavior.
  • It helps regulate body movements as well
Music For Meditation Is Not A Necessity, It's A Preference

Often we hear crashing waves, swirling synths, and chirping birds in the background of our guided meditation voice projects to help us get comfortable and notice our breathing. However, there are many kinds of meditation and if background music isn't your preference, then there isn't a need to continue using ones that have them.

Just like sports, there are also many different types of meditation practices where some involve music while others don't.
