A Kindle Fire loaded with more than 20 romantic suspense novels, including my upcoming June release, is featured on Brenda Novak's diabetes research auction site today. I highly recommend bidding for this item if you can.

Love may lie not in your heart but in your brain. Using fMRI scans, researchers have shown how the early stages of romantic love activate the dopamine-releasing striatum, which is part of your brain’s pleasure center. This flood of dopamine creates a rush that can make new love feel like addiction. But falling in love also activates the insula, a brain region associated with motivation to acquire reward, which gives meaning to life-sustaining activities like eating and sleeping. It’s the insula that’s responsible for creating the bonds of long-lasting love. Share this post with friends and tell us who you love best in the comments.

So, I'm not just wasting time when I keep checking emails etc, I'm boosting my productivity.
While it may seem counterintuitive, your brain will actually perform more efficiently if you take breaks from work. Because your brain is built to respond to change, it eventually stops responding to the same sight or sounds after a period of time. This process of habituation is why you aren’t constantly aware of your clothing touching your skin. And your brain also habituates when forced to focus on the same task for a long period of time, according to research from the University of Illinois. Researchers found that even tiny, multi-second distractions could break the cycle of habituation and help you stay focused longer and perform better. So instead of feeling guilty for your Facebook breaks, think about how you’re boosting your productivity. Share this post with friends and let us know what you think in the comments.
