Improve your life in….

15

15 seconds
Dry your hands with a paper towel in public restrooms.ย  A study in the Journal of Applied Microbiology found that this was more effective at removing bacteria from freshly washed hands than using air dryers.

15 Minutes
Walk like a happier person. Research found that subjects who walked with good posture (upper body straight and arms swinging at a normal pace) were less likely to be vulnerable to bummer thoughts than those who had a slouchy gait.

15 Hours
Spend this much time a week doing a mentally challenging activity (say, mastering Photoshop) In a study, those who did so significantly improve their memory after three months, compared to others who spent their time completing more passive tasks.

15 Days
Take a vacation already!! A report released by the U.S. that employees who fail to use 11 to 15 days of their paid time off per year feel more stressed at work and aren’t anymore likely to score a bonus or raise than their colleagues.

  1. Yes, I do dry my hands with paper towel in public restrooms. Yes, I try to walk upright, but the pavements around where I live need repairing, so I have to look where I’m going. Yes, I am always trying to master something new and, indeed, am attempting to get my head around Scribus and Gimp. Not sure about the last one, as I’m not in outside employment, but I do feel the need of a holiday after 20+ years without one!
