DENVER, Nov. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific studies reveal a strong link between gratitude and random acts of kindness and overall good health, including stress reduction, inner peace and happiness. That evidence is supported by examples from the life of stress relief expert Lauren E. Miller, a breast cancer survivor and author of "Release the Stress around Breast Cancer... with Methods and Mantras for the Mastectomies of Life."
"I experienced 16 chemos, 12 surgeries, 1 year of herceptin infusions, 6 weeks of daily radiation and a divorce all under 2 years," said Miller. "Many times I would lay in bed in fetal position and start to verbalize everything that I was grateful for in my life. I learned that I cannot be depressed and grateful at the same time. As soon as I shift my focus from the pain to being thankful for all that is working out in my life (for example, I can see, hear, love, laugh, communicate, connect) along with random acts of kindness (such as phone calls, letters, cards, a smile, working with the homeless), peace returns within my heart and the physical discomfort dissipates.
"Having a grateful spirit in the midst of any life challenge creates a lighthearted response to the events before you. This is an instant stress reliever. You are then able to connect to your God-given inner voice of inspiration, which speaks to the importance of an attitude of gratitude, along with a spirit of love and kindness to those around you," she said.
"When you are grateful and practicing random acts of kindness in your life, you end up feeling safe and connected to that which is good and true in this world and the result is inner calm, clarity of thinking and a heart full of love."
According to scientific studies, some of the physiological benefits to this experience include:
- Increased immune system
- Improved Cognitive Performance
- Increase in energy
- Lower heart rate
- Balanced cortisol levels which result in less internal stress
- More likely to live a longer and more satisfied life
- Laughter and inner joy resulting in decreased stress hormones; lower blood pressure; diminished pain
Knowing this, Lauren recommends filling every day of the year with thanksgiving and kindness.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number?

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
