Are you Ready for GDPR?

Are you GDPR Compliant?

You may be asking yourself what is GDPR?

GDPR refers to the European General Data Protection Regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. GDPR is an EU wide change to data protection laws. GDPR comes into place on 25 May 2018 and will replace the current Data Protection Act (DPA)1998.

Even with the UK’s forthcoming Brexit from the European Union, UK businesses will still need to comply to GDPR if the data they hold is about EU citizens, that can potentially identify individuals within the EU. The UK will replace the Data Protection Act 1998 with legislation that mirrors GDPR Post-Brexit.

Life in the slow lane: why I’m standing up for slowness

Guest post by Stella Tomlinson, Living Yoga with Stella, Dru Yoga and Meditation Teacher and writer

Life in the slow lane:

Why I’m standing up for slowness!

“Oh she’s got so much energy!” “Ooh I don’t know how she does it all!” “Gosh, I wish I had her energy!”

How many times have you said that or heard that and felt a pang of envy or a kick of inadequacy in comparison?

I know I have.

Some people seem to pack their lives full of activities and achievements. They have a hundred plates spinning at any given time. They are popular and always smiling. Their home is immaculate.

Work-life balance

Why Work-Life Balance is Important

At YourEVA we are firm believers in WORK, REST and PLAY

Lifestyle is a choice

The meaning of work-life balance is the prioritisation between “work” and “lifestyle”. Balancing our work and lifestyle can be challenging in today’s society as everyone has busy work and lifestyle commitments to attend to.  However, it is our lifestyle which is usually put on hold for us to be able to focus on getting our workload completed, whether you own your own business, a CEO or an employee we all have responsibilities to fulfil. We spend the majority of our waking life at work and less time at home. This type of work-life is the main cause of stress, less time with our families, relationship and health problems.
