Play a tune

Listening to music helps you relax and reduces anxiety at work, and at home. It can also make you more alert, researchers say.

Join us for a walk on the lighter side today as we talk about the lifestyle choices that can, ultimately, help elevate your job performance and increase your potential for long-term success. These have nothing to do with technology trends, management challenges or leadership skills. And here's a secret: You'll likely find that making such adjustments in your life is actually fun. That's because researchers say you'll improve your health and intellectual capability by increasing the amount of laughter, music and overall "play time" in your life. It's highly recommended that you set aside enough "up close and personal" time with your significant other. Here's another secret: If you're one of those "Type A" managers who brags about getting by on only four hours of sleep a night, you may be surprised to learn that you actually may be hurting - not helping - your ability to lead. Here's more on what you can do to improve your personal life and enhance your "professional game." Information for this feature is aggregated from experts at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), WebMd, and the Mayo Clinic, among other top health authorities.
