I will share your information about Etrends news published about life in an era of change start to now details.
The word of 2020 is uncertainty. Many of us had to rethink everything that we considered unshakable: relationships, work, business, travel, pace and place of life, plans and values.
We thought we understood the principles by which the world around us worked, and believed that we could act and make decisions in accordance with these principles. Many things that would have seemed to us meaningless or simply crazy a year ago are now our daily routine.
Experts will study and assess 2020 for a long time, but we wanted to look at the bigger picture: how do we get through difficult periods in life? What happens to us biologically, emotionally, physically? How do we consume more and more information? How do we joke, communicate, make decisions? How do we think about our future in a world where there are fewer and fewer landmarks? In the end, how do we remain reasonable in all this, and do we remain at all? In the new issue of Etrends news, we tried to answer these and other questions.
This release came out as eclectic as possible: it shows the world in all its volatility, and provides several working tools and practices that will help relieve the stress of eternal surprise and overload. In this issue we argue:
