Perfect your college presentation with these nifty workstations

PC Tables has college students covered with their selection of mobile workstations

Tired of getting to the library and seeing nothing but full tables or trying to study on your bed which just puts you straight to sleep? The Tabletote is the perfect piece of survival equipment for studying on-the-go or at home! This handy companion can be assembled and used anywhere from the dorm room to outside or anywhere that a stable work surface doesn’t exist. FYI Students! Tabletote does a lot of business with college student debaters. Since debate has moved from a print oriented environment to computer environment, they find our little lightweight portable/compact table quite helpful.

This convenient workspace sets up in just seconds and without tools. When your years of seemingly endless studying and term papers have paid off with a degree, take the Tabletote with you into the workforce for an impressive tool that will enhance your productivity and give you a leg up on the competition.

Students don’t need an obnoxiously large case to carry their Tabletote in, as it fits nicely inside a standard laptop bag or your school backpack making the Tabletote the most convenient laptop stand on the market. Its compactness makes it perfect for frequent travel or having to commute to multiple campuses in one day. Have a presentation to do on two separate campuses on the same day? The Tabletote will not only have you covered with the ability to easily slip into your bag and travel, but also the instant set-up time will eliminate any stress you may have with time management.

Accidents in dorm rooms and in classrooms happen all of the time if you don’t have your laptop on a sturdy surface. No one wants to have to call up Mom and Dad and explain how a new laptop was broken. This is why purchasing a Tabletote would provide an extremely sturdy surface to place your laptop on when you are using it or when it is not in use.

Tabletote is available in three models – Original, Plus and Stand Up. The Original Tabletote weighs less than 3.5 lbs and comes with lightweight aluminum telescoping legs that can extend from 13″ to 29″, enabling you to have a versatile space to use while sitting or standing. The Plus model offers the same great features as the Original, plus two clip on accessories for your cup and PDA to create a truly dynamic and expandable workstation. The Original and Plus models can easily fit in backpacks and most laptop carrying cases – transport size is 13″ long x 10 1/8″ wide x 1 1/8″ thick when fully compacted. Both models also offer an offer a large extendable work surface, allowing for an external mouse or even a portable projector for those of us who want to showcase big presentations!

Those who want to do presentations while standing up or are a bit taller than that average person can use the Stand Up model. The Stand Up model has all of the amenities of the Original Tabletote, but has an extra set of longer legs, which has a height of 39 inches instead of the standard 29 inches of the Original model. So, those who need a versatile workstation while doing a standing presentation can pick up this version of the Tabletote.

If you’re signed up for Amazon Student Prime or spend over $35 on Amazon.com, you’ll enjoy free shipping when you order the Tabletote. You can also order with ease and confidence knowing that Tabletote is sold EXCLUSIVELY on Amazon.com (it’s been Amazon’s best selling laptop stand since 2009).

Your Spring Break Packing List

Your tickets are booked, hotel is reserved (and if not, get the hell on it!) and you are seriously ready to get your party face on. But what are you bringing?

Sure you could play it safe and bring your whole closet in a checked bag, but baggage fees are so last year. Let’s break down the essentials you’ll need and show you how to get them all neatly packed in your carry on. Because the less time you waste waiting at a baggage carousel means more time on the beach and isn’t that really the whole point?

Sunscreen. Non-negotiable. Because, safety. Also nobody wants to party with the bright red lobster with the unfortunate tan lines. Bonus: don’t forget lip balm with SPF either, because your lips burn fast in that afternoon sun.

Refillable water bottle (empty during the actual travel, natch). Bonus if you can find one of those collapsible ones. The goal is to stay hydrated with your own water supply and NOT have to shell out your beer money on bottled water.

Portable battery and phone charger. If you don’t have a portable rechargeable battery, buy or borrow one. You will have your phone out all day, snapping pictures, posting Instagrams to make your friends back home jealous, and getting walking directions to Senor Frogs. A portable battery means never being tied to an outlet. FREEDOMMMMM!

Two swimsuits. Because your main one will probably not dry overnight on your hotel balcony, and slipping into a cold, damp suit in the morning feels gross.

A light jacket. You are probably heading somewhere warm, but the nights can get chilly or a sudden downpour could literally rain on your parade.

Aspirin. Long days in the sun + drinking = headaches. Also good for muscle aches if you flex too hard trying to impress some hottie on the beach.

Your own towel. Some hotels do not allow you to borrow theirs for the beach, and you don’t want to have to buy a $30 towel from a souvenir shop. Your towel also rolls up to make a good neck pillow on your flight, so when you are hung over tired on the way home you can rest a little easier.

So now that you know what to bring, here’s how to get it all in your carry on, because you are smart like that…

Take those travel-sized bottles and tubes out of their bulky boxes and into a clear Ziploc. Easier at airport security and takes up much less space.

Roll, don’t fold. Rolled clothes defy the laws of physics and fit better. Don’t ask how, just try it and thank us later.

Limit yourself to three pairs of shoes, MAX. Ladies, we are looking at you here. You really only need three pairs: flip flops for the beach, your favorite sneakers for the rest of the time and one pair of dressy flats if you decide to hit the dance floor. These can be swapped for heels if you absolutely have to, but they will take up more precious real estate in your bag.

Wear your sneakers, your jeans and your jacket for the plane ride. The bulkiest stuff you are packing won’t waste space if you wear it to and from Cancun.

How iEDM is transforming EDM fashion

EDM has now become a lifestyle

EDM is not just a music genre it is indeed a lifestyle and now iEdm is transforming EDM fashion. It is not just about the music it’s about the vibes, your squad, and having the time of your life each time your favorite DJs take the stage. It is about the sweat, the crazy beats, dancing, the blazing crowd, and to be able to let go of all worries and insecurities. Since the world got its first taste of Electronic Dance Music in the late 1970s it has grown to become one of the top preferred music genres of today. From radio and commercials to music festivals and clubs, EDM has grown to be massive!

EDM lovers not only crave great music but demand the hottest and finest apparel to rock at festivals and parties. Seeing the growing need for creative, art inspired EDM apparel iEDM was born. Launched in 2014, the brain child of Anthony Ulanovsky has become one of the leading EDM apparel retailers in the world featuring 20+ brands. His long time passion and near obsession with Electronic Dance Music, the unbelievable community vibes and of course the music festivals (Ultra, Tomorrowland, and EDC to name a few) led him down a path of creating a cutting edge online store that offers more than 7000 products ranging from kaleidoscope glasses to hoodies and HD bed sets.

The key to happiness is doing what you love and you must take risks to obtain it. In 2014 Anthony quit his full time job, the same day EDM Life Inc. launched iEDM.com. Since then, EDM Life Inc. now better known as iEDM has grown to 14 team members distributed around the globe. iEDM is a like a family – the team behind the emerging EDM online retail giant are all huge music fans which they credit for the passion they put into their work.

The iEDM team is committed to keeping EDM shopping and EDM brands in the hands of people with a genuine interest in protecting and promoting the principles of the EDM culture: community, humor, positive music, art, and especially charity.

iEDM’s huge selection of all-over-print threads and rave wear has lead it to become one of the leading EDM apparel suppliers in the United States in just under two years. iEDM creates an all-around shopping experience not limited to just party and rave outfits. From colorful high definition bed sets to LED masks and jaw dropping hoodies iEDM’s products range far and wide. The company is always mindful of quality and supporting local business with over 95 percent of their products crafted and produced in the United States.

iEDM.com is known for its all-over-print hoodies, tank tops, and t-shirts. This range of apparel features a 360 complete visual of some of the most wild, EDM inspired apparel designs today including the famous Nebula and Space apparel line. These best sellers are made through a process called sublimation printing in which the graphic is printed on a separate sheet and then a heat press is used to transfer the image over to the apparel. This allows the colors to be extra vibrant and in many cases appear 3-dimensional.

Since being founded in 2014 iEDM has become an industry giant with a huge social following and an ever expanding international fan base including a strong following in Japan and Australia. Recent ventures into podcasting (iEDM Radio) and EDM blogging (iEDM On Blast) have been well accepted. iEDM Radio has been hosted by the likes of 3LAU, Cazzette, Vinai, Quintino, Shaun Frank, EDX and Showtek.

iEDM has quickly become the preferred destination for mind blowing apparel. The wide selection of products, awesome staff, and engaged community is the result of passionate outlook and commitment to keeping EDM apparel companies in the community and out of corporate hands.

We reviewed the Smokebuddy personal air filter

This might be the most effective smoke filter I’ve ever used

Every smoker has been faced with the dilemma of trying to mask the smell of smoke,  this is why we reviewed the Smokebuddy personal air filter. There are plenty of myths that surround methods on masking smoke. From dryer sheets to blowing into vacuums, all of these different ways to mask smoke almost guarantee that smoke will escape and the plan to eliminate the smoke will be foiled. However, Smokebuddy is the most effective personal air filter that I have ever tried.

If we start from the beginning of the company, The Smokebuddy was founded in 2008 and is located in Southern California. Smokebuddy has been developing personal air filters to help reduce pollutants and is quickly making waves in the smoker’s community.

The Smokebuddy is small enough to fit nicely in a purse or a coat pocket and is inconspicuous enough for people who see the handy device to not know what it is being used for. Similar to the size of a tennis ball, Smokebuddy is convenient in the sense that it doesn’t have a lot of parts that can be lost or that need to be constantly replaced. The only extra part that you need for your Smokebuddy is the travel cap that helps keep the mouthpiece clean.

The Smokebuddy comes in 3 different sizes: Smokebuddy Original, Smokebuddy Junior and Smokebuddy MEGA. For this review I used Smokebuddy Original. This was a nice medium size to fit nicely in my purse, but still be big enough to mask a fairly large amount of smoke.  I took a fairly large puff and put my mouth over the mouthpiece and exhaled. To my surprise, Smokebuddy completely filtered the smoke. No smell and no smoke clouds escaped. I did this around 7 times and there was barely any smoke except the burning tobacco in the pipe which I covered to extinguish. This personal air filter truly works!

After doing further research I found that Smokebuddy is equipped with charcoal carbon filters that trap the pollutant molecule into the pore structure and essentially grabbing the odor molecule before it escapes out of the other side. It is for this reason that the smoke is completely eliminated upon exhaling into Smokebuddy.

If you are a smoker who wants to indulge discreetly then you should definitely grab yourself a Smokebuddy, you can also save people from the perils of secondhand smoke and odor if you buy this nifty product. With the purchase of Smokebuddy you will also receive a really cute LED light keychain. Purchase yourself a Smokebuddy by visiting the website. www.smokebuddy.com use the discount code collage for a 20% discount on anything in the store. 

Perfect Fit for College Schedule: YogaFit

Need a Job? Under Stress?

Need a job? Under stress?

Those two questions will get most any student nodding their head. Whether you’re battling class assignments or fighting for more room in your dorm, college will always find a way to get hectic. Not to mention those summer savings aren’t going to last forever. No matter how many stress relieving events student organizations may hold on, it’s still an effort just to make it there, if your new job and classes will allow it in your schedule.

Yoga isn’t just some modern trend craze. Not only has it been scientifically proven to manage stress and promote health, it’s a fun and often easy-going gig, whether teaching part time or full. YogaFit (and founder Beth Shaw have aimed to bring healing yoga to the masses since it’s founding. The belief that yoga is a gift for the body and mind, and that sharing this practice with others will aid in personal growth has inspired many to join the movement. It is said when one teaches, two grow.

YogaFit is the largest yoga fitness education school in the world with more than 200,000 instructors trained on six continents. Each year across North America, a dozen Mind-Body-Fitness Conferences, and an average of 800 yoga teacher trainings give people the tools to become yoga instructors. Our 80 highly skilled Master Trainers work diligently to improve the health, skillset, performance, and mental balance of those they are training to teach. YogaFit partners with the American Council on Exercise, Can Fit Pro, many other health and wellness organizations and is required by several college yoga programs throughout the United States.

Colleges and universities embrace the warmth of YogaFit principally for the safety and inclusiveness engrained in the teaching style. Based on fitness principles developed in the best selling book YogaFit, we set ourselves apart within the industry with safety modifications to common poses, taking into account the importance of healing bodies. The goal is for each student to have the most healthy mind and body possible. The acceptance, lack of competition, and exclusion of expectations gives teachers the opportunity to create a unique and more peaceful environment. In addition, YogaFit stresses the idea that yoga is open to each and every person who feels the call to practice. Since YogaFit works to remove all competitiveness from the minds of those practicing, our trainers are instructed on tending to those who may need more help during class. Getting away from the college life of competition, stereotypes and expectations? What a relief! Every student has the right to this beneficial practice and the spreading of its light. YogaFit continues to open this opportunity to students by hosting trainings on campus in some areas.

What better job for your college schedule than teaching yoga?  Earn cash while reaping the physical and mental benefits! Most college jobs require blocks of hours at a time, which can clog up a student’s schedule. Book just one hour per day, or however many classes you want to! Being a yoga instructor allows the perfect daily length of time to focus on one’s body, wallet, and your last assignment. For students who don’t have access to work study jobs or off-campus employment, teaching yoga is the most convenient way to make money.

Colleges that require their students to be trained through YogaFit find that the same safe and inclusive pattern is found embodied from class to class. This consideration for the comfort of individuals in the class is tradition at YogaFit. Join the family of instructors and get your dream job in college. Find out more about our programs and get started on your path today!

A Millennials' Guide To Choosing The Right Backpack

How to choose the right back for your custom needs in college

Opening their doors in a suburb just north of Detroit twelve years ago, Flymode had one mission – to showcase the hottest apparel and streetwear brands to the local, style-conscious consumer.

Fast forward to 2015, and the mission is still very much the same, but on a larger global scale. Evolving from a small local shop into an exclusively online retailer for the last 7 years, Flymode continues to set the trends worldwide.  

Featuring everything from core skate brands such as DC Shoes and DGK to streetwear giants like Crooks and Castles, Diamond Supply Co. and Staple, Flymode continues to provide their growing clientele with more options for the fashion-minded urbanite. Recent brand additions include Reason, FairPlay LA and Defend Paris, just to name a few.

Fashion, however, goes way beyond whatever graphic T-shirt you choose or what snapback you decide to wear.  Cutting-edge style can intersect with practical concerns.  One of them for today’s trendsetters on college campuses worldwide is: How do you carry all your books, laptops, tablets and all sorts of other gear around town in a way that still looks dope?

No one understands this real-world challenge like Flymode, and during this and every back-to-school season, they’re here to tell you that you have more options today than ever before. Virtually all the top-selling brands on their roster feature backpacks, totes, laptop cases, purses and other handy things to help you transport all your gear securely and ergonomically while still maintaining your cred out there.  These include selections from Neff, Etnies, Sullen, Paul Frank, Tokidoki, Harajuku Lovers, Enjoi, and many more.  

Sprayground started in New York a few years ago, hitting the scene with their graffiti-inspired designs.  Proving that carrying stuff around doesn’t have to be boring, they’ve grown into one of the biggest street culture backpack companies around and expanded their catalog to provide backpacks for every taste and walk of life.  From cannabis-inspired designs like their “American Diesel Flag” model and their 420-friendly collaboration with Madzilla (see photo above and keep reading for a chance to win a Madzilla x Sprayground backpack courtesy of flymode.com), to their officially-licensed cartoon themes such as Spongebob Squarepants and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to their collaborations with iconic artist Ron English, there’s literally a Sprayground for everyone and Flymode has you covered with their extensive selection.

Looking to make a statement but flashy, colorful images aren’t your thing? Founded in Libby, Montana and proudly handcrafting their products there to this day, Epperson Mountaineering is one of America’s oldest and most-respected backpack manufacturers. Taking inspiration from classic climbing backpacks of the 70’s and 80’s, each piece is expertly assembled at their Libby factory with durable cordura, leather and other premium materials to get you through whatever your day may bring you, whether in the woods, on the slopes or simply around town.  

Fall somewhere in the middle in terms of what you’re looking for in a backpack? Flymode still has something for you! Remember those brands mentioned at the beginning of this article? They stock backpacks from those brands as well as many others, so you can always show your love for Famous Stars and Straps or Supra, or choose new arrivals from Focus Spaced or Indispensable Bags.

If you’re off to Burning Man, Coachella or another festival, Flymode will help you pack with their hand-picked range of weekend-ready functional bags tailored to each additional need. Notable selections include Bench’s “Packable” (collapsible) overnight pack, the “Camel Back” Hydration Pack by Sprayground, the Legendary “Mayor Duffle” by Flud (a sneaker collector’s dream) and Fi-Hi’s “Voltron” Stereo Speaker Backpack for rocking out your favorite tunes on the go without headphones!  For the eco-conscious traveler, Urban Kraft’s line of eco-friendly, tech-friendly, tear resistant and water-repellent packs and bags represent the bleeding edge of contemporary, minimalist design and elegant functionality. 

Whatever the need, brand choice or style preference in a backpack or other bag, Flymode’s got your back with their extensive selection, knowledgeable staff and excellent customer service.

12 things journalism students understand

Which of these 12 things journalism students understand do you relate to?

They say that journalists can only enter the profession out of pure passion—and it couldn’t be truer. Journalism is tough, but thankfully student life prepares us for what’s to come. Here are 12 things journalism students understand.

1)     Being forced to be opinionated about an opinion: It may not seem like it, but journalists refrain from picking sides. Most of the time they are given sides to pick. We have to embrace the “go with the flow” attitude because being judgmental is out of question.

2)     Learning to love strangers: Even if you’re totally disinterested in what a total stranger has to say, you have to at least appear to be interested. Asking random strangers personal questions is something you’ve gotten the hang of—maybe a little too much.

3)     The spell checker is your personal favorite editor: Proofreading your documents is daunting. Thanks to your word processors in-built editor, the jobs done in a fly.

4)     There’s no deadline like a journalism deadline:  Journalism students understand where the words “dead” in “deadline” came from. You’d rather be dead than miss a deadline. It gets even worse when you’re friends are already halfway through their assignments when you’ve barely started.

5)     It wasn’t for the money: Your journalism teachers tell you this over and over again. If you’re a writer, forget about the money. If you thought unpaid internships was a bad thing, wait till you graduate.

6)     Having no idea what you’re writing about: An editor’s an editor. Demanding work and meeting a deadline is more important than knowing what you’re supposed to be doing. So every time you get a topic that flies above your head, you silently curse, say a prayer, and start typing away God knows what.

7)     Receiving hate mail – a.k.a trolls: Everyone in arts and humanities has to get used to negative feedback. But sometimes, it’s just drills a hole in your heart, especially when you’re starting out. No matter how hard you try or how fair you sound, some people just troll for the heck of trolling. Thankfully, though, there comes a time when you just get used to it.

8)     The Word Count Obsession: It’s almost as if your life hangs on word count. When the words aren’t enough, you’re looking for way to fill in here and there, and somehow magically turn an uncomplicated subject into an exhaustive one.  So much for being “concise”. Then there are moments when you are asked to decrease word count. Ughh…. all those beautiful sentences!

9)     The thesaurus is your next best friend when you are pursuing journalism: Learning fancy vocabulary is just a matter of opening up a thesaurus. Choose a word that sounds good, insert, replace, voila!

10)  When your professor rips apart your story: You haven’t hurt more than the time when your prof bashed your story because of all the “flaws” he saw which you couldn’t. Whatever happened to praising hard work!

11)  Everything’s an Article: You write everything like a story. You’re casual, you have a unique voice, and  it’s all perfect—until you realize that you’re supposed to be writing a dissertation like a professional dissertation writer, or wait, maybe an essay, or perhaps—just an email.

12)  The dread of being asked “what’s your major”: You’ve gotten used to hearing implicit and explicit remarks about how clever (NOT) your choice of a major was. You keep telling yourself that all you need is passion, grit, and gumption to make it to the top. After all, people like Neilson Bernard, Maureen Dowd, Katie Couric, and Brit Hume had no trouble influencing people around the globe with their stories, right?

Whichever the case, you’ve chosen to do what you love, and you love what you do when you chose to do journalism.

…And that’s really all that matters.

Rochelle Ceira works as a chief editor for an online platform that offers academic assistance to learners and educators alike. When not working, she enjoys writing blogs on career planning, entrepreneurship, leadership skills, etc.

9 Crucial Factors That Can Help You Polish Your Career

In this materialistic world, there is a constant war going on inside everyone’s mind and heart that is why the life has become so tough and boring for one’s self in comparison to other who is enjoying a quality life with all the luxuries and necessities. In this scenario, a weaker side always looks on the position and career of their opponent. They seek answers to those questions which arise in their mind. Is this just their luck? Is this a professional degree? Or is this an influence or back ground support which rejuvenates the careers and lead them to the top positions.

I have discussed this mind set to various high profile professionals, business man, engineers and doctors and tried to sum up their feed backs, success stories and reasons of success in some points which I am discussing in this article. These points are actually the key of success for every individual who is not happy with his/her current job and want to do something better but don’t understand how to do it. These crucial points are as follow:

1: Self-Determination

Ignite the internal fire for getting success and do not water it but keep burning. No one is going to support you more enough as compare to yourself and therefore, you must start building your skills from now. The more skilled you are, the more chances you will have for success in your future career.

2: Meet and Greet

Observe and follow to successful people and try to adopt the goodness from them. Life is actually a constant process of learning and gaining. Obey this guideline and you will learn a lot from it within a very short period of your life. Learn from everyone no manner how junior they are to you, if they have something better than you, you must adopt it.

3: Self-Analysis

Instead of pointing finger on prosperous career of others, look towards your weaknesses and strengths. Work on nourishing and polishing your strengths and overcome the fears and weaknesses. Fear is something that will never let you try your luck and maybe you will lose great opportunities only because you did not dare to explore them.

4: Awareness Sessions

We are observing that in the era of 20th century, there are vast changes in the field of science and technology. The techniques are moving towards sophistication and those who do not update their technical courses and academics are moving towards failure. Don’t make yourself a loser and understand the importance of technology.

5: Eagle Eye on Market Trends

Do not stick to one company; keep your knowledge up to date on increasing trends of market in different sectors. Explore and experience different working trends and environment as this will increase your knowledge, skills and experience and you will be able to catch better job opportunities in your particular niche.

6: Control of Reactions

The successful person is one whose emotions are under the control. Do not show your anger or sentiments, as it will always have negative impact both on your efficiency and behavior. Have a strong grip on your behavior and reactions will allow you to tackle with every difficult situation in an effective way.

7: Networking

Increase your professional network. Do not wait to make contacts for the time when you are in need, but build and nurture your professional strength by making contacts with the skilled professional in green days. This is actually a form of investment which will pay you back tomorrow when you actually need to get their help and support.

8: Association with profession

This is an advice for the youth not to waste a single day without job. If there is a gap in employment, it will count as negative in your CV. Furthermore, the gap will lose your confidence and shatter your focus. No matter how unsatisfied you are in your current job, don’t quit until you find an alternative job.

9: Seek Expert Advice

Consult with experts and share your fears, problems, desires and goals in order to uncoil the brain punches. These counselors will dig out your personality flaws and assist you in resolving matters tactfully and smartly. At last, I am ending the discussion with the TAG line…’Success begins from out of comfort zone’.

Final Words

There are various other factors which can be amazing helpful in polishing one’s career but all these factors mentioned above must never be ignored by those who really want to build a successful career as soon as possible.

More About Cedar Bear Herbs

Cedar Bear’s liquid herbal glycerin tinctures, both complex formulas and single herbs, are great tasting and are extremely high quality. They are made without alcohol, (which makes the herbs not work as well), and if you have ever used regular herbal tinctures, you know how awful many of them taste.

All Cedar Bear products are in liquid form, (basically a concentrated herbal tea), because liquid is the best way to take herbs as dietary supplements and the body is able to put them to use immediately. Pills, powders and capsules have to be digested first. That not only slows their effectiveness down, but often they aren’t digested or utilized at all. That can be a lot of money you literally ‘flush down the toilet’ and that doesn’t do you or your pocketbook any good!

Cedar Bear herbs are easy to carry with you. Use them as your ‘herbs on the go.’ They don’t need refrigerating, can handle heat and cold, and travel very well.

All Cedar Bear products are inherently alcohol-free, gluten-free, corn-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and nut-free, and GMO-free, so you don’t have to worry about your major food allergies or sensitivities. Cedar Bear also uses strict guidelines for herb sourcing, and uses Certified Organic herbs when available. The proprietary process Cedar Bear uses has a low carbon footprint, is very green friendly, and all products are made in the U.S.A., so you can feel good about choosing Cedar Bear herbs for your personal health support.

To build your hard working adrenal system and your mental focus, add Adrenal & Focus Blend to your daily routine, along with eating plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, drinking several glasses of pure water each day, and trying your best to get a good night’s sleep. Adrenal & Focus Blend also helps soothe overstressed nerves so you can have the nerves of steel you need for your active life, bringing everything into better focus!

So, when your Coach shouts “FOCUS!”, you’ve already got that play in motion with Adrenal & Focus Blend by Cedar Bear Liquid Herbs.
