Kristen Houghton | January 25, 2015 | Healthy Living
No matter where we go in 2015 we can be reached at will by the outside world. Cell phones and text messages, Bluetooth and Sync, Skype and email -- you're only a click away from being found. Honey, you're in techno overload; I am a prisoner of technology! Everywhere I...

Jennifer Twardowski | January 25, 2015 | Healthy Living
There is something that you can do even in these situations where the person doesn't really tell you how you can help them. It is one of these hidden reasons that we may not always think of or realize unless we choose to really sit back and focus on the big picture.

Mary Ann Johnstone | January 25, 2015 | Healthy Living
The not doing that some call "procrastination" is universally steeped in shame and guilt and treats this incubation period like it should be included in the list of deadly sins next to greed and murder.

With a Conscience -- 'Our Mother's Daughters'

Claudia King | January 25, 2015 | Healthy Living
In the end, there is only love of all the memories we were given. We are our mother's daughters. We have traditions, talents and our dreams just like them. We have our individuality, in spite of the occasional dissensions.

Where Does the Love Go?

Christian de la Huerta | January 25, 2015 | Healthy Living
One of the reasons so many relationships don't last is that we confuse "falling in love" -- the temporary, emotional, hormone-infused high -- with the act and art of loving, the sacred work of relationship.

The 8 Steps to Happiness

Samantha Matt | January 25, 2015 | Healthy Living
Whether it's a job, a friendship, a relationship, a SHIRT, you can't force something that just isn't right. You can -- and you will -- be persistent about making what you want happen, but don't force anything.

15 Rules to Live by for a Happier Life

Elyse Gorman | January 25, 2015 | Healthy Living
1. Treat every day as a beautiful gift. Hands up if you count down the days until Friday. We're wishing away more than half of our week while simultaneously lamenting that "life is too short." We're saving our favorite things for "a special occasion," which automatically sends a message to...

Kristi York Wooten | January 25, 2015 | GPS for the Soul
If the norm for thoughtfulness now comes in a package of 140 characters or less, then so be it. Yet, let us never underestimate the power of our words in this new age of brevity. There are no shorter or easier ways to say 'I love you.'

Growing Up in a Hippie Commune: Making Peace

Abby Pingree | January 25, 2015 | GPS for the Soul
My childhood, though unique in some ways, is not that unusual. There were challenges and even painful experiences, but I have come to understand that in order to see beyond pain, first there must be pain. There were many children born to the some 350 members of...

Firas Kittaneh | January 24, 2015 | Healthy Living
Getting healthier is always a top priority for many of us around the new year as we come off of the holiday binge and look forward to summer. "Healthy" can mean different things to different people, but generally, feeling good, looking good and taking care of yourself fits the bill.

WATCH: Change Your Mind (About Success, Money, Love, Memories, etc.)

Brad Yates | January 25, 2015 | GPS for the Soul
"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got" -- and if you always think what you've always thought, you're gonna keep doing what you've always done. I hope this brand new video will help you change your mind about a few things... If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the "Tap Out Your Fears" series -- which explains the basics of EFT -- click here. As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you! For a picture of the tapping points -- and more info on EFT -- click here. Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer. Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at For EFT with kids, please visit: For more by Brad Yates, click...

On a Couch With a Dog: Lessons, Love, and Loss

Kara Beckman | January 23, 2015 | College
When everything else in our lives is consistently shifting, we want to be able to come home to familiar surroundings, and feel as though something is permanent and stable. However, even those things that seem constant are subject to the will of time, and will change.

Own Boredom

Joanne Heyman | January 23, 2015 | Healthy Living
Taking a fresh approach to boredom may be just your ticket to greater satisfaction in 2015! Why? Because, in our fast paced, digitized and hyper-linked lives we feel more and more compelled to fill idle time that could be used to actually reflect, relax, create and connect.
