How Can You Figure If It Is Time To Replace Your Mattress?

Sleep is almost as essential as healthy food for the well being of our body. Sound sleep is essential, as your body repairs the worn out tissues while you are sleeping in a comfortable position. Just like a phone's battery is charged with a charger, so is your body refreshed with a comfortable sleep of 7 to 8 hours.   If you cannot get a sound sleep of approximately 8 hours, you will not be able to give your complete effort at work as your body will be fatigued from the previous day.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
