What can you accomplish in five days? A whole lot when it comes to building a solid foundation of self-care. Whether you want to live and work more mindfully, establish healthy boundaries, or crush your goals, get a free, 5-day email course from Kerstin Auer over at tools for better.

(Spoiler alert: We’re now on inMotion.)

Geraldine Bedell reports on the worldwide coworking culture over on Digg, highlighting one of many things we appreciate about coworking: “A study by Harvard Business Review found that coworkers believe their work has more meaning.” Yes, please.
