Now I have LOADS of productivity ideas to try out. There were so many ideas that I figured the best thing was to single out my top three, and try to start turning them into habits, otherwise I risked overwhelming myself even more. These are:
Many people see positivity as a genetic trait - something they are either born with, or not. In the same way that we might talk about our eye colour or height, many of us will describe ourselves as naturally optimistic or pessimistic.
As our interest grows with bionic technology, leading experts within the field predict a more diverse and intrusive prosthetic offering in the future. Not content with a versatile and functional limb, users will begin to expect and demand more; including sense of touch and predictive movement.
At first glance, Florence appears to be like any other young, carefree toddler. Full of glee, light and mischief. But the toy-like device that she is seated in is not, in fact, a toy. It is a Wizzybug powered wheelchair. Florence was born with a disability which means she cannot walk.
Today we will make a step-change as a business. We will use our voice to put a spotlight on the dangers to the health of our oceans, helping to drive change starting with our 30,000 employees across Sky, to our customers in the UK and Europe.
Recent research has shown that combining mindfulness and running has a greater impact on depressive symptoms than either of the two activities alone. So how can we bring mindfulness and running together? Here are some ideas for runners of all levels:
When it comes to the law, VR can help the jury make a decision and support either side of the case. Using VR to help a jury member make their decision is an easy task with the technology. VR's greatest asset is its ability to take anyone, and put them in another person's shoes.
Our challenge was how to visualise a system where access is not readily granted to press or filmmakers, and how to bring the words of our contributors to life when most did not want to be filmed or identified. In many ways VR with its qualities of immersion, presence, and interactivity felt like the perfect medium for this subject matter.
We all have problems. However, many of those problems are actually caused by our own mind instead of what's going on in reality. It lies in the habit of our thinking. Especially for people with anxiety, the impact of bad thoughts can be very significant and might even become physical.
Thousands of women in the UK, right now, are denied the basic human right of safety in their own homes. They are robbed of their autonomy. They and their children are thrown in harm's way, again and again, by systems that should protect them but instead let them down. This is happening because when sexism asserts itself, not enough people say no. And then women are robbed of the power to say no. Well, we have that power and we are using it. That's why I march.
The voices we heard in 2016 delivered unexpected political outcomes but I am not sure that we have yet fully understood what the message was. What is abundantly clear is that many people feel short-changed on hope. They want action. We must challenge our current circumstances both by acknowledging where we are and by calling for more and for better - better government, better funding and fairness, better life chances.Following an extraordinary year, here are my revised campaign priorities for the changed world in which we now live.
A few years ago, I probably would have said that I did not feel in control of my life. I was fortunate to have loving grandparents who never stopped supporting me and to come across The Prince's Trust which helped me set up my business. They were some of the helping hands which have enabled me to be in a position today to help so many young girls reach their potential.
There is still the odd zombie shooter, and zombies jumping up on you in virtual reality is very, very frightening. Beyond slaughtering undead hordes, are there more constructive applications of virtual reality technology? Yes, and the possibilities are endless....
In future, as artificial intelligence becomes more widespread, surgery may be conducted entirely by robots. This means time can be freed up for doctors to devote their time to tasks which specifically require human interaction and emotions when treating patients.
The startup is called Chatterbox. By training and employing refugees as language tutors, the venture catalyses refugee integration into the UK labour market whilst tackling the country's language skills deficit.
A single game today has the potential to reach and entertain millions of people. However, the impact of most games usually stops there. They exist solely for entertainment and leisure. This didn't sit well with us, especially when we considered how many important problems there were all around us that were going unaddressed.
