Corporate Chair Massage and Worse Case-Scenarios

Much of my work in Stress management work in NYC involves corporate chair massage, also known as onsite massage of seated massage.

Many companies create holistic and wellness fairs to educate their employees and give them more skills for effective decision making. Any type of mobile massage can provide that positive edge that increases productivity and reduces absenteeism because physical health influences mental clarity and corporate chair massage is an effective approach to ending the spiral of stress  though merging the mind and body.

 

 

This work is especially useful for those dealing with worse-case scenarios.

A worst-case scenario is a concept in risk management wherein the planner, in planning for potential disasters, considers the most severe possible outcome that can reasonably be projected to occur in a given situation. Conceiving of worst-case scenarios is a common form of strategic planning, specifically scenario planning, to prepare for and minimize contingencies that could result in accidentsquality problems, or other issues.

The worst-case scenario is “one of the most commonly used alternative scenarios”. A risk manager may request “a conservative risk estimate representing a worst-case scenario” in order to determine the latitude they may exercise in planning steps to reduce risks. Generally, a worst-case scenario “is settled upon by agreeing that a given worst case is bad enough. However, it is important to recognize that no worst-case scenario is truly without potential nasty surprises”.  In other words, “[a] “worst-case scenario” is never the worst case”, both because situations may arise that no planner could reasonably foresee  and because a given worst-case scenario is likely to consider only contingencies expected to arise in connection with a particular disaster. The worst-case scenario devised by a seismologist might be a particularly bad earthquake, and the worst-case scenario devised by a meteorologist might be a particularly bad hurricane, but it is unlikely that either of them will devise a scenario where a particularly bad storm occurs at the same time as a particularly bad earthquake.

The definition of a worst-case scenario varies by the field to which it is being applied. For example, in environmental engineering“, “[a] worst-case scenario is defined as the release of the largest quantity of a regulated substance from a single vessel or process line failure that results in the greatest distance to an endpoint”. In this field, “[a]s in other fields, the worst-case scenario is a useful device when low probability events may result in a catastrophe that must be avoided even at great cost, but in most health risk assessments, a worst-case scenario is essentially a type of bounding estimate”. In computer science, the best, worst, and average case of a given algorithm express what the resource usage is at least, at most and on average, respectively. For many individuals, a worst case scenario is one that would result in their own death.

The story below is an example of a worst case scenario where clear thinking saved a life in a worst case scenario.

100s of Lifehacks: Today’s Lifehack is How Build a DeskTop Computer for $60 or Less

This hack requires a bit of time, patience, some dumpster diving and a friendly computer repair shop.

arrow-964733__340

Here are the details in this hack.

  • Often when the external hard drive on someone’s computer crashes they dump the entire unit including a perfectly function keyboard and screen.
  • You can find perfectly functional and “free” computer screens, keyboards and a mouse (the computer part not the rodent) at the Transfer Station (we used to call them the town dump.) or put out on the sidewalk for pickup.
  • If you know when the pickups are made you can go there the day before to find what you need.
  • Now for the last piece of the puzzle – Many computer repair shops especially in small college towns or locations that are 20- 30 miles from the nearest mall have perfectly functional hard drives that no one seems to want and that may even have original software installed. You can often barter for it (See the chapter in my books on barter) or buy it for as little as $40-$60.
  • All you have to do now is take the hard drive home, plug all the pieces in and your good to go!

Think and Grow Rich with these Money Hacks

puzzle-1721271__340

A financial lifehack (or life hack) refers to any trick, shortcut, skill, or novelty method that increases productivity and efficiency concerning how you profit from personal resources including money,  in all walks of life. The term originated with computer experts who suffer from information overload or those with a playful curiosity in the ways they can accelerate their workflow in ways other than programming but has since become part of ordinary language especially around millennials.

  dollar-1362244__340

Here are two of my favorite money life-hacks

  1. The Track Your Investments Hack

Every once in a while a story appears in the paper describing how some celebrity has been ripped off by their assistant, accountant or investment broker.  It is often said the “the devil is in the details” and this is especially so concerning personal finance. On the macro-level it is important to track your investments. This is how you put this hack into action:

  1. Maintain detailed records of any transactions you’ve made with a broker.
  2. Now look at your monthly brokerage reports.
  3. Compare the two.
  4. If there are any discrepancies contact your broker immediately to discuss and resolve them.
  5. To paraphrase the Taoist philosopher Lao Tzu who says, “It is easier to solve a problem when it is small,”  hacker philosophy is based on the idea that it is easier to clear up errors when they become evident.  If you keep track of your investments they will become evident sooner rather than later.

The Save Time Checkbook Balancing Hack

One of the busiest wastes of time is balancing your checkbook to the last penny. When entering a transaction in your checkbook the most efficient and productive approach is to round your checks up to the next dollar. In twelve months you’ll probably end up within $20. of the actual balance and you’ll be the one who has gained.

Game Theory =A Survival Hack – Create a Basic Disaster Supply Kit

rug-logo

(Also Known as the Lifehack Guru)

A few years back the area I live in was hit by back flooding. My home sitting on a mountain was spared but the flooding was bad below our area that FEMA came in. I volunteered to help people ”dig” out. Many were unprepared for a disaster. Are you?

arrow-1294467__340

Here is a list of what you need to have in order to be prepared for a disaster.

towel-1774910__340

A basic emergency supply kit could include the following recommended items:

  1. Fill a fireproof box.Items should include identification and other important cards, financial records, family photos and emergency cash in small bills.
  2. Design a disaster plan.It should include whom to contact and where to meet family members in case of an emergency. All family members should know the plan and the numbers to call.
  3. Make a list.Include emergency phone numbers such as 911, the local fire department, poison control, and rescue and ambulance services. Keep it in a place where you can find it fast — like on the refrigerator door.
  4. Create a go-kit.Pack a sturdy, easy-to-carry container, such as a backpack or a suitcase on wheels, and keep it in an accessible place. To find a list of what it should include, go toready.gov/kit.
  5. Turn off.Know how to shut off valves for gas, oil, water and your home’s main electrical supply. Put tags on these valves so you can find them quickly, but have a professional turn them back on again, the Federal Emergency Management Agency warns.
  6. Have food and water handy.Store three days’ worth of nonperishable food for each family member, plus a gallon of water daily per person for drinking and sanitation. Canned food, peanut butter and energy bars are all good. Important: Don’t forget a can opener.
  7. Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both.
  8. Flashlight and extra batteries.
  9. First aid kit.
  10. Whistle to signal for help.
  11. Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place.
  12. Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation.
  13. Wrench or pliers toturn off utilities.
  14. A Swiss Army type knife containing many different tools.
  15. Manual can opener for food.
  16. Local maps.
  17. Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger.
  18. A small tent to sleep outside if your house becomes unsafe.
  19. Plastic ponchos (available at most dollar stores).
  20. Extra cash in case ATMs are inaccessible.
