I’ve always considered myself a generally healthy person, and have always been proud that I’ve completely avoiding tobacco, alcohol, and other intoxicants completely throughout my life. Being one of the lucky few that rarely ever feels sick due to common colds and other generic illnesses helps too; things that would normally cause people to take a day or two off from school or work. But there is so much more to maintaining a healthy lifestyle than avoiding drugs and alcohol or never being sick – a host of things that I should be doing to improve myself but don’t do. Health isn’t just about not feeling sick, but represents your overall well-being. It is a combination of many factors of your everyday life covering such things as eating habits, sleep patterns, and exercise routines.

Flexible workplaces, also known as remote working, allow employees to establish their own work environment at their home. This benefit is often seen as solely beneficial to the employee, and is frequently used to advertise positions and capture more talented employees who would otherwise be unavailable. Some employers don’t see the other side of the coin and fail to ascertain how remote employees could further benefit the company. Some even fear that remote work just leads to bigger problems. However, flexible workplaces are beneficial to both employers and employees alike - they just each get different benefits. Remote work done right can lead to happier and more loyal employees, increased productiveness and efficiency, and even reduced costs for the company.
Have you noticed others around you consistently neutering their gender pronouns? Well they're doing it for a reason, but that reason is rather irritating if you think through it more thoroughly. Join me as I critically analyze a satirical article that defends gender and denounces this neutering tactic.
