3 Ways to Channel Work Frustration Into Motivation – Thrive Global

Motivation
Feeling frustrated is natural, but it’s also difficult to deal with — especially if you’re at work, trying your best to be productive and efficient.

Here's How Women Practice Self-Care Around The World – Romper

Self Help
If you're celebrating yourself this International Women's Day, or any day really, why not indulge in one of these self-care practices from around the world?

However, despite the progress in discussions around company culture and incentivizing performance, a large portion feels excluded and unhappy at their workplaces. A May 2018 Cigna study revealed that 46% of Americans sometimes or always feel alone, and only 53% feel they have meaningful connections with others on a regular basis.
