In these days we talk a lot about Trump and the US. We are very scared about what we see. The Americans have always been a reference for democracy and tolerance, but in these elections they have shown that something changed in the American society. In Europe populism à la Trump is rising, also due to its, how it seems, easy success to get the votes of frustated middle class families and the support of many young people without a job. They are doubts about immigration and integration, but nevertheless Europe and the European Union are still the best example in the world for tolerance and democracy.

Many companies or people in Europe are in a breakdown at the moment, either on a professionnal or private basis. A breakdown is a situation in which you realize you cannot continue like before, and you can´t go foreward as you had planned.

A breakdown doesn´t necessarily have to be negative. It can be meaningful for an indivicual but it is huge to deal with. An example would be a promotion in your company or a change in career: for example that you have left the environment of a multinational corporation and want to set up your own business.

The Institute of Obesity warns us about the increasingly strong relationship between lack of sleep and weight gain. In recent years, obesity has become a principal health problem. Spain is one of the countries where obesity is growing very quickly and despite a good diet, Spanish kids are often overweighted.

In light of these increasing numbers, there’s been a push to find the link between obesity and the social factors that make it such a widespread problem, but with each investigation it becomes clearer that sleep is an important part of preventing obesity.
