Happy 10th Birthday to the Hills!

the-hills

Today is the 10th Birthday of the only reality TV show that I like, The Hills. The Hills marked a change in TV, and created the genre called Reality TV. Since it was the first reality TV show, it was probably the most real at the beginning. There have been numerous BuzzFeed posts about The Hills, and this one is by far my favorite because it shows how real the Hills was at one point. The protagonist and my favorite person on the Hills, Lauren Conrad, has made quite a career for herself since leaving the show. This Levo post discusses some of her biggest accomplishments. But really, thank you MTV for developing the Hills and Happy 10th Birthday to the Hills!

One of my favorite companies for professional development tips is LEVO. The site allows you to create a profile, a bit like LinkedIn, but brighter, organized differently, and more interactive. They also publish a variety of articles and inspirational quotes, host webinars, and have downloadable guides all related to professional development. Here are my 6 favorite articles:

Anxiety

 

 

IMG_1756Well it’s a Sunday night, and I can’t sleep. This week at work is going to be busy, and I definitely am feeling the stress already. Recently I’ve become obsessed with Levo, and the concise but helpful articles they post. Last week they posted an article about 12 Apps That Will Help Calm Your Anxiety, and from what I’ve tried they work. I previously downloaded the Calm app, but deleted it for some unknown reason. The Levo article helped me stumble upon it again, and I tried the three-minute meditation and it calmed me down at work.  If any of you have tried the other apps, please let me know!
