LESLIE LIKES: Why Is the Time Timer the Best Timer for Students?

It’s the Most Effective Time Management Tool to SEE the Passing of Time

Most of us are visual learners. Managing an abstract concept like “time” is a struggle for most students. The Time Timer changes the game by helping you “SEE” time pass. As time elapses, the bright red disk quietly disappears, showing you how much time is left. No ticking! No numbers! Just a clear intuitive visual to help you see time move.

National Diabetes Month Featured Product

Myabetic OrganizerNovember is National Diabetes Month and in its honor, I am spotlighting one of my favorite organizing products for those with Diabetes — the Myabetic Banting Diabetes Wallet.

But recently, I attended a lecture by Dr. Joel T Nigg. The lecture was fascinating and the information presented was informative and helpful.
