Research, daydreaming. The whole of the world is at your fingertips and you can explore anywhere with the click of a mouse. We're not sure we can tell you how to get inspired, but videos, Instagram, websites are a good place to start. Budget The next thing to think about is budget. When bikepacking, the good news is that a trip can be pretty cheap. If you plan on setting out from home then all you really need is a bike and some luggage but Head further afield then you will need to factor in actually getting there too. However the cost of living at your destination of choice might be different too so Perhaps you’ll spend more on flights, but save on food and accommodation. Route So you’ve got the time, you’ve got the money, now the really exciting bit, route planning. Google maps is a good place to start, particularly if Google street view is available. It’s an option in a surprising number of places and it will give you a flavour of what to expect. Traffic levels, scenery, even climate. Do you have any cycling adventures lined up? If so, let us know what you've got planned. 👇 If you enjoyed this video, make sure to give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends. 👍 If you'd like to contribute captions and video info in your language, here's the link - http://gcn.eu/-e Watch more on GCN...

Working Remotely Is Not Necessarily Stress-Free

Many believe that working from home or remotely can foster freedom and stress-free job satisfaction, and that everyone wants  more work autonomy.A new study from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, says “Not so fast.”In the study, researchers examined the impact of remote work on employee well-being. Their findings suggest that a variety of factors can undermine or accent the employee benefits of working off-site.Accordingly, researchers developed new strategies to help managers provide remote-work opportunities that are valuable to the employee and the company.“Any organization, regardless of the extent to which people work remotely, needs to consider well-being of their employees as they implement more flexible working practices,” the researchers wrote.The study appears in the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology.In the review, a total of 403 working adults were surveyed for the two studies that made up the research, said lead author Sara Perry, Ph.D.Researchers meas…

For Many with Severe Mental Illness, Spirituality Plays Role in Well-Being

A majority of young adults with severe mental illness, such as major depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, consider religion and spirituality relevant to their mental health, according to a new study published in the journal Spirituality in Clinical Practice.For the study, researchers from Baylor University interviewed a racially diverse sample of 55 young adults (ages 18-25) with serious mental illness who had used crisis emergency services. Their findings suggest that religion is an important issue to patients, but one that is rarely addressed in a health care setting.“Not only did these young adults struggle with serious mental illness, but they had also experienced extreme adversity — including abuse, poverty, homelessness, addiction, near-death experiences, loss and an overwhelming lack of access to medical and mental health services,” writes lead author Holly Oxhandler, Ph.D., associate dean for research and faculty development in the Garland School of Social Work at Ba…
