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.

One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
