4. Whistle While You Work: Music can Enhance Your Work Performance?

Listening to music during work is frowned upon However, music can actually help your work performance?
The researchers found that listening did improve task performance on simple tasks, but not on complex tasks (Oldham 1995). Nonetheless, for the employees that listened to music, the music made them more relaxed and in a better mood at work. The researchers also found that the employees that listened to music were less likely to quit (Oldham 1995).

It seems carefully tailoring the music you listen to while studying, based on the subject matter and your mood, can help keep you focused — so long as you stay away from lyrics while doing language-based work.

6. Why we fear the things we do

The amygdala is probably one of the smallest structures in the human brain. It’s just a tiny mass of neurons (Bailey, 2014). It’d be easy to dismiss it, but you shouldn’t-and here’s why. The amygdala has a lot on its plate. For one, it controls the secretion of hormones that are responsible for fear and aggression (Bailey, 2014). It also interacts with the hippocampus to deal with your memory (Bailey, 2014). It’s no wonder, then, that the amygdala is what is responsible for controlling your phobias.
Is it something innately born, the answer is probably not. The research conducted shows that a genetic link is highly unlikely (Goode, 2015). It’s much more likely that phobias are the product of our environment or experiences.

3. Did you know you could go out with a bang. This sounds fantastic to me I would love it. “Heavens above Fireworks” is a company that turns your ashes into a firework after you die and you literally can be lit up and go out with a bang. A great way to say good-bye
