  4. Being your own priority—a business (and life) imperative | “I’m in charge of well-being at Deloitte. I know how essential self-care is. And it’s my job to make sure everyone in the organization knows that too. But these days, I have to admit I’m not always practicing everything I preach… I’m asking myself a question these days, and I invite you to ask yourself, too: Why do I feel it’s okay to take care of myself when I’m sick, but not when I’m healthy?”
  5.

  8. Here’s why we like, really like, repetition in music. | “Pop music songs have become increasingly repetitive in recent years — think Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off, Beyonce’s 7/11 or Formation, and just about anything by Rihanna — and there’s a good reason for this: we like repetition. When people repeat words, it stops sounding like speaking and starts sounding like singing. Lyrical repetition makes songs sound more musical.”
