Looking for a good read? I recommend Brain Rules by John Medina. It’s a book about 12 principles for surviving and thriving at work, home and school. It teaches you, in simple terms, how your brain works and how to maximize its potential. This author highlights some important concepts about our daily lives: sleep and stress.
