In 1965, a psychologist named Bruce Tuckman said that teams go through 5 stages of development: forming, storming, norming, performing and adjourning. The stages start from the time that a group first meets until the project ends. Tuckman didn’t just have a knack for rhyming although it does make the stages easier to remember. Each stage is aptly named and plays a vital part in building a high-functioning team.

As fall approaches and tucked-away boxes of coats and sweaters begin emerging from dusty corners of the basement, we all find ourselves with clothes that have gone out of style, no longer fit, or look like they’ve seen better days. But think twice before chucking your closet’s misfits in the nearest dumpster! Believe it or not, most of those clothes are reusable, and options for reusing old clothing abound -- without having to sew. Read on for ways in which you can give new life to your old clothes.

Time for yourself is often the first thing to go when life gets busy or stressful. Even under ideal circumstances, carving out time for you can be a challenge. Couple this with guilt or feeling like claiming me-time is selfish or unnecessary, and you can easily create a situation where your own needs aren’t being fed. It’s a recipe for burnout, overeating, and simply not being at your best. Do you struggle with allowing yourself the self-care and me-time you need to thrive?

Toxic people have a knack for worming their way into your life and taking over. It’s generally pretty obvious that these people are more trouble than they’re worth, but that doesn’t make it any easier to cut them off. Sure, they’re messing up your life, but they’re also your friend, partner, or relative. It’s difficult to toss that relationship away.

Maybe your grandchildren live nearby, and you often fill in as a babysitter. Perhaps they live at a distance, and visits are an eagerly awaited special event. You might even be one of the growing number of seniors who are raising their grandchildren when the children's parents can not. No matter what your situation, when grandchildren are in your home, you want them to be safe, and you want to be able to enjoy their visits without worry.

It's that time of year when the outdoors beckon! Spending time outdoors is good for all ages, but especially beneficial if you are "getting up there" in years. It increases our vitamin D levels, which helps fight certain conditions such as osteoporosis, cancer, heart attacks and depression. Make getting outside one of your goals for the summer, spending less time in front of the television or computer. Just making the trip to attend an indoor function can have some of the same health benefits. The health and social benefits of staying active are plentiful.

Entertaining does not have to be synonymous with trash. Some books on this list are serious, some are funny, and some will keep you up all night. But all are unforgettable.
