3 Tricks Triathlon Transitions Teaches You about Life

It’s another one of those days. Get up, throw on some clothes, choke breakfast down, get to gym/pre-work commitments, rush to first meeting (just made it!), and the load starts piling up. No chance for a breather. Lunch-time and you’re starving – but coffee, coffee, coffee! Every corner you turn means another ten-minute discussion, walking meeting, or crisis control. Getting back to the desk is your only focus, but at the same time there’s no energy left, plus all you...

Good Night, Blue Light.

What's the most common cycle in your life at the moment? For all of us, it should be the sleep cycle (a.k.a. Circadian Rhythm). Yet, for many of us it is not.
