Have We Lost Faith in Humanity?

| Posted 07.11.2012 | Healthy Living

Our cynicism has conditioned us to always see the negative in people. But we should really give each other another chance. We should stop thinking of the glass as half empty and try to find the positive in others.

We Should Start Loving Ourselves

| Posted 07.12.2012 | Healthy Living

We should look into the mirror and see our beauty instead of the flaws. We should give ourselves a hand of applause when accomplish something. We should pat ourselves on the back when we do something good. We should start loving ourselves.

When Vegetarianism Fails

| Posted 07.12.2012 | Healthy Living

In spiritual practices I've learned that no rigid rules apply. What works as an effective practice in the beginning often needs to evolve and adapt as we grow. One of those long enduring spiritual practices for me was vegetarianism.

How to Start the Next Chapter of Your Life: Forgive

| Posted 07.13.2012 | Healthy Living

Forgiveness is the only key to letting go. Forgive yourself for mistakes you made in the past because nothing will change what has already happened, the only thing you control is what you do in the future.

Stop Letting Other People's Negativity Affect Your Mood

| Posted 07.16.2012 | Healthy Living

We cannot change other people, they will do what they want and act how they want. The only thing we can change is our reaction to them. Ignore their negativity, reply to them with a smile and show them that they have no power over you.

Weight Loss: We Are More Than a Number on a Scale

| Posted 07.17.2012 | Healthy Living

We need to help ourselves. We need to start loving ourselves. We need to stop tying our self-worth to our body issues. We are not just a number; we are people who are more than just our weight.

Losing a Parent... and How Empty Spiritual Teachings Make It Worse

| Posted 07.18.2012 | Healthy Living

People don't get cancer because God wants to teach them a lesson. Children don't starve to death to learn about universal love. Life includes suffering, simple as that. Feel it, endure it, and hopefully -- when you finally stop trying to make sense of it -- it will pass.

The Fight Within: Good vs. Evil

| Posted 07.18.2012 | Healthy Living

It's important to focus positive energy on ourselves. A lot of times we get upset because of the way other people treat us or other factors that we just cannot control. We are the only thing that we can really be in control of.

Spend Some Time on Personal Growth

Along with feeding our materialistic needs, we also need to feed our soul. That food can be anything from meditation, music, art or knowledge.

Be Compassionate With Every Action

What is it that keeps us from believing that we, as individuals, can make a change? Although we understand that as humans we cannot do everything, we still have the ability to do something.

Stop Being Afraid of Failure

Imagine a world where nothing could possibly go wrong. Think of all the things that we could accomplish if we were not afraid of failing.

The Power of Meditation

| Posted 07.25.2012 | Healthy Living

At times, life catches up with us and  it becomes easy to forget to find time for moments of self-reflection. But it is important to remember that no human is an island. We can learn a lot about ourselves from the people we surround ourselves with and the relationships we foster.

Do Not Give Up: An Inspirational Story

| Posted 07.26.2012 | Healthy Living

At some point or other, we have all thought about giving up. No matter what the task it, we get to a point where we can no longer see the light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to make it to the finish line.

Don't Get Stuck in Monotony

Take today as an opportunity to question some of the things you've taken for granted about yourself and the choices you've made. Think critically about the assumptions that you let rule your life. Do they still hold up?

What's the Difference Between Religion and Psychosis?

| Posted 07.27.2012 | Healthy Living

This week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Gotham Chopra about his new show, Holy Facts. Billed as "the show that treads the fine line between scientists, spiritualists, and psychotics," I was curious about Gotham's own take on the relationship between the three.
