We are probably the busiest generation ever to exist. Work and household chores can consume most of our day. Our online life also absorbs us, as we are answering emails, making appointments, shopping, reading about the news, connecting with friends and family, from dawn to dusk. With such busy lives, it can be very easy to neglect our bodies, minds and communal welfare.

That’s where the Life Wheel comes in. This is a tool developed to help people tune in to their most essential needs in a holistic way. The idea behind this is that you check on 8 essential areas of your life on a daily basis, to ensure that you are leading a balanced and harmonious life.

To apply this technique, take 10 minutes every day to rank between 1 and 10 the levels of each important area shown in the image above. If you are feeling absolutely healthy, then place a 10 in Health. If you are struggling to pay the bills at the end of the month, enter a 2 in Money.

This will help you get a ‘helicopter’ view of your life and identify the areas you need to strengthen or pay more attention to. Set goals in each area and slowly improve in the areas that need care and effort, in order to harmonize your life.

Can Stress Actually Be Good


We usually see stress as a negative sensation on our bodies as work deadlines pile up, conflict with friends and family appear or when trying to accommodate to busy schedules. That kind of meaning to the word stress is what wears us down both mentally and physically, but according to research there are actually two different types of stress with different implications to it:

-    Distress: This one refers to negative stress, such as having extreme anxiety that ends up with people having trouble sleeping, eating or concentrating. Long periods of distress due to biological or external events increases the likelihood of chronic disease.

-    Eustress: On the other hand, eustress refers to a kind of “positive stress” which can have some positive effects such as protecting us from aging and disease. This beneficial stress drives us to complete our daily tasks and life goals, and has a direct effect with our life satisfaction and well-being.

In small doses, stress can help us give meaning to our lives and keep us active. This helps us build confidence and skills that are important for our careers and how we build our relationship with people. A life without stress isn’t necessarily better, and healthy competition in life makes us feel proud of ourselves and helps us grow as human beings.

Technology has changed the world for the positive by, for example, allowing millions of people to work remotely, order groceries online and even use the help of Artificial Intelligence in our day to day tasks. As the COVID-19 outbreak accelerated contactless solutions around the city, smart parking has been one the initiatives to reduce exchanging cash and parking meter use.

Governments and tech companies are now creating platforms that allow people to check parking occupancy anywhere in the city and pay for it online right from their smartphones. Now, instead of having to interact with a real person on having to wait in line to pay for the service, users can even add more funds to their reservation without having to even be close to the parking space where they left their car in.

Digital parking technology is another component of smart cities that are quickly changing the way we interact with our city spaces. Additional benefits of digital parking include space optimization as users have higher visibility into parking spaces surrounding each area, as well as unloading some of the city traffic that is caused by drivers looking for a place to park.

Whether you are looking for a parking space at malls, schools, parks around the city or in your office, regular parking causes an impact to the environment and stress to people who simply cannot find a space. With the introduction of these technologies, people are able to find where to park more efficiently and without having to interact with real money.
