For a reader-friendly structure Please insert a new content element, such as an image, video, infographic, GIF or similar, regularly (approx. every 350 words: wherever it fits). This not only loosens up the text, it also captivates the "lazy readers".

Please avoid overly convoluted sentences, word repetitions and "man" sentences. Often these sentences simply don't sound nice and lead to an unrounded overall result.
