Allow me to set the scene… I belong to a local business club. It’s structured but informal, and not at all like the target-driven scariness I’ve heard rumours about. Part of each meeting is a member’s ’10 minutes’, where each of us talks to the rest for ten minutes about something to do with our
We hear a lot about how good it is to share mental illness stories. It's also fine NOT to share. Whatever is best for you.
Music has become my way to reset my brain and alter my energy, so I work with maximum efficiency. Particularly during a mid-afternoon slump or to combat a distracting mood.
