Research shows you get multiple tasks done faster if you do them one at a time. It also decreases stress and raises happiness.
You spend money on Internet connection for your employees. Why not spend money on the energy that fuels their brains?
Our daily decisions and habits have a huge impact upon both our levels of happiness and success.
Scientifically, happiness is a choice. It is a choice about where your single processor brain will devote its finite resources as you process the world.
Success does not mean happiness. Check out any celebrity magazine to look for examples to disabuse you of thinking that being beautiful, successful or rich will make you happy.
You have to train your brain to be positive just like you work out your body.
