This Is What Anxiety Looks Like

Gary Nelson | August 20, 2014 | Healthy Living
I know that my dad meant well and that the doctor who treated me was trying to be helpful. In retrospect though, they were clueless. I know now that dealing with anxiety is a lifelong challenge, and at least now I feel like I'm coming out of the fog and finally facing the monster.

Steven Clough | August 20, 2014 | Small Business
You really have to love what you're doing and love who you're doing it with to make it worthwhile. In the end, one thing has become clear from these adventures: Not everyone is cut out for them. Some have no interest, others lack the discipline.

Love-Ability Factor

Leigh Weinraub | August 20, 2014 | Healthy Living
True love-ability is an attitude. It's a way of being. It's the way you show up in the world. And because it's not based on the reactions of others, it is the deepest security, created from the only thing in life you can totally control, i.e. your own spirit.

What Greek Dancing Can Teach Us About Life

Michael Neill | August 20, 2014 | Healthy Living
Worst case, we enjoy the journey. Best case, we enjoy the journey and arrive at some fun and interesting places. Either way, we are having fun, learning heaps, and dancing each day from a place of comfort and well-being inside us.

Meditation Is the Catalyst for Growth

Jennifer Kass | August 20, 2014 | Healthy Living
Meditation is the catalyst for transformation, self-knowledge and taking action in the world from an aligned place of love rather than a limiting place of fear-doing things from our heart rather than what everyone else wants us to do or what we think we should be doing.

How to Change Everything About Your Life in One Year

Amanda Smear Baudier | August 20, 2014 | Healthy Living
July 12, 2013 was the last day of my former life. The life where I was a managing partner and the director of events for a big, swanky, successful nightclub. The life where I was glued to my Blackberry and kept three pairs of high heels under my desk for easy access before meetings.

Incorporating the Sensuality of Aromatherapy as a Daily Practice

Valerie Bennis | August 20, 2014 | Healthy Living
Sensuality and aromatherapy are the perfect synergy. Incorporating the beauty and pleasure of plant essences into daily rituals can help keep us in touch with our sensuality and sexuality. When I speak about aromatherapy, I am referring to essences that are extracted from various parts of a plant -- bark,...

Why We Need To Improve Our Perception (And Consumption) Of Dessert

Emily Luchetti | August 20, 2014 | Taste
It wasn't that long ago we had a different attitude to desserts. As a kid of the baby boomer generation, I remember desserts as a treat. Something you splurged on occasionally. You didn't have it every night and you certainly did not have it for breakfast or the sugar equivalent in sodas between meals.

Improving the American Mental Health System Requires Accurate History

Michael Friedman, L.M.S.W. | August 20, 2014 | Healthy Living
Today's system is undoubtedly inadequate in many ways -- but it is better than it was when the transition to community mental health policy took place. It's important to recognize this because inaccurate history is not a good guide for making the current system better.

The Power of Coming Back to Joy and How it Can Help You at Work

Marina Illich, Ph.D. | August 20, 2014 | Healthy Living
Let's remind ourselves of a simple fact: Joy is our birthright. Joy is not an externality. It's not something we can afford to dip into when time or bandwidth permit. It is a cornerstone of our power as influencers, visionaries and creative agents of change.

Why Are We All So Busy?

Aimee Raupp | August 20, 2014 | Healthy Living
I cherish down time. I love being present and in the moment. I honor my quiet, creative time. I am proud to be less busy and happy to have shifted my mindset from one of being too busy to one of living a full life.

40 Percent of American Workers Will Leave Paid Vacation Days Unused

Arianna Huffington | August 20, 2014 | Travel
An important new study released this morning by Travel Effect found that 40 percent of American workers will leave paid vacation days unused. The four reasons cited the most are the dread of returning from a vacation to piles of work (40 percent), the belief that no one will be able to step in and do their job for them while they're gone (35 percent), not being able to afford it (33 percent) and the fear of being seen as replaceable (22 percent). "Americans suffer from a work martyr complex," said Roger Dow, President and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association. "In part, it's because 'busyness' is something we wear as a badge of honor." Clearly, we need to work harder about working smarter -- by not working all the time. The "work martyr" complex needs to go the way of the Dictaphone, typewriter and green eyeshades as relics of the workplace of the past (okay, I like typewriters, but you get the idea).

Why It's So Important to Lean Into Your Fears

Kirsty Hanly | August 19, 2014 | UK Lifestyle
The job of our unconscious mind is to keep us safe and protected - to keep us out of the way of potentially life threatening situations. Fear in these situations is obviously very useful, but the trouble is that our minds often connect up what should actually be neutral situations to something it perceives is harmful to us.

I Pulled Away From My Tribes (And Why You May Want To)

Stephenie Zamora | August 19, 2014 | Healthy Living
There's no one-size-fits-all plan for this kind of thing, so trust your intuition. If something or someone who once resonated deeply no longer does, that's okay! Growth means shedding layers, people, things, and experiences that no longer serve us. You don't need any other reason besides "this no longer feels right to me."

Stop Calling It Morning Sickness

Nitzia Logothetis | August 19, 2014 | Parents
Let's stop underselling this monumental physical experience by breezily passing it off as morning sickness. Let's call it what it is: nausea and vomiting of pregnancy.

Game Changer: My Bipolar Journey

Marisa Lancione | August 19, 2014 | Healthy Living
Mental illness is insidious. It's a monster that buries itself deep in your brain and rears its ugly head when you least expect it. And just when you think you've gotten to know the game it plays, the rules change.
