Are You Suffering From Secondhand Stress?

Jonathan Alpert | July 28, 2014 | Healthy Living
When you're around your positive friend you connect and relate to him or her. When you're around the miserable boss, you're tense because you're picking up on his tension, maybe even trying to understand him, and it doesn't make you feel good.

Grace Friedman | July 28, 2014 | Teen
When I was 11, I was diagnosed with ADHD. It was a great relief to know why I was struggling, but having an ADHD diagnosis did not in and of itself resolve any of my challenges, it simply categorized and in some cases amplified them.

Sally Swanson | July 28, 2014 | Healthy Living
It's only been in recent years that I am at peace with food, and I am certain that this is much more than a temporary truce. Why did it take me such a long time to appreciate the value in my acupuncturist's words? Look around, there's a standard in this country that is harmful to women. Life is lived in many shapes and sizes.

How to Pinpoint Your Purpose

Polly Campbell | July 28, 2014 | Healthy Living
Purpose is not finite. It is not contained by a single duty or job description or activity. It is not limited by a single expression. While your purpose will probably remain the same throughout your lifetime, how you express it will shift and change dozens of times. Make room for that expansion.

Prayer can be a time of healing and recalibration. It can be a time for doubts and concerns. It can be a time when you reaffirm what you really believe is important, what you want to do with your life. The big thing is that it gives you the chance to choose the light every day.

Alexandra Harra | July 28, 2014 | Healthy Living
Forgo the negative emotions keeping you from true forgiveness. Remind yourself that whatever happened, happened, and that there is no reason to drag the past into your future.
