Concentration is sometimes spoken of as the ability to direct one's thinking in whatever direction one wishes to. We all have a concentration span: this is the time we can concentrate on a specific task before our thoughts wander and our minds race from one thing to another.
Our bodies use cholesterol (a waxy, fat-like substance that is naturally present in cell walls or membranes) to produce many hormones, vitamin D, and the bile acids that help to digest fat. High cholesterol does not cause symptoms by itself. Instead, it is a risk factor. High cholesterol levels in the blood can cause fatty deposits in blood vessels, which in turn can lead to heart attacks, strokes or peripheral artery disease. The most common causes of high cholesterol are all related to high fat diets, inactivity, and obesity.
Anger is usually a normal human emotion. However, it can be one of the most insidious forms of violence when it gets out of control. It can also lead to problems at work, in personal relationships, and in the overall quality of life. Uncontrolled anger takes control of the mind and places one at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. Expressing angry feelings in an assertive manner is the healthiest way. To achieve this, one must learn what one's needs are and how to meet them without hurting others. Being assertive literally means being respectful of yourself and others.
A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health, and successful outcomes to every situation and action. Positive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts, words, and images that are conducive to growth, expansion, and success.
The brain gives us human potential - to learn, to dream, to achieve and grow. It is perhaps the most powerful and yet the most delicate organ in the body. For many years, it was assumed that brain cells could not grow past early childhood and would automatically degenerate as we reached our senior years. But recent scientific research has broken the bondage and fatalism of such beliefs and demonstrated ways in which the brain can be trained, enhanced, and kept agile and alert every day of our lives to empower whatever we do.
Time management refers to the efficient and effective use of your personal time to meet your professional and personal goals. It means prioritizing things that are important and not just urgent.

Here is the way to a more organized way to use and manage that precious resource - time.
We all wish we possessed a sharp memory. How often do we envy those with clear recall and wondered how they do it while we fumble with names and facts on an everyday basis. Memory is the warehouse, where all static and emotional data is stored. Believe it or not, our brain is bombarded with 60,000 stimuli each second.
Allergies are abnormal reactions to ordinarily harmless substances. The sensitizing substances, called allergens, may be inhaled or swallowed or come into contact with the skin.

Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future, and for motivating yourself to realize this vision of the future, converting it to reality. Think about where you want to go in life. These are your lifetime goals. Once you know want to achieve, you can plan where to focus your efforts. You will quickly spot the distractions that will sidetrack you.
