Simple Productivity Blog

I feel like I've been getting mentally sloppy. For this month's challenge, I decided I would do brain training every day. Why Brain Training? I feel like I've been getting mentally sloppy.

“Chakras” – if you’ve attended a yoga class, there’s a good chance you’ve heard it there. You might have even heard it in some movies or shows when they speak about the blockage or aligning of the chakras. Perhaps, someone has given you advice about working on a particular chakra.

Working From Home? 7 Cybersecurity Tips to Keep in Mind

Dumb Little Man

The most recent world pandemic has led to the closure of many businesses. Consequently, many professionals have started working from home. And this has become a norm in the IT industry.
