Robert Colvile | May 26, 2016 | Healthy Living

I Stopped Apologizing. Now, I'm So Much More Confident.

Rachael Yahne | May 26, 2016 | Healthy Living
I didn't realize that the habit of starting sentences with, "Sorry, but could you..." actually made me present my own needs as weaknesses.

Patrick O'Brien | May 26, 2016 | Fifty
Just like our parents worried about us getting sick or hurt, there comes a time when we as adult children start to worry about the health of our parents. Perhaps we notice changes in their energy, memory or coordination. At some point, health issues can make it very difficult to live alone.

As we seek to plant flags on new tech summits, it is important to be aware of the health risks involved in navigating this unknown and rocky terrain. Technology-induced accidents notwithstanding, the gadgets have already produced a variety of physical and mental maladies among the general public, which have been unknown or hitherto restricted to specific occupations.

The reward, of treating ourselves and others with compassion is that we feel contented in our hearts knowing that we are helping humanity evolve to greater peace and harmony.

Gina Keatley | May 25, 2016 | Healthy Living
Yes, you may want to plan out a week's or a month's worth of meals, but for me it takes the spontaneity out of meals. Maybe, just maybe, we can stop living in the past or the future and just learn to enjoy the healthy meal in front of us now.

Brook Packard | May 25, 2016 | Healthy Living
And the culture of convenience has made sleep a little bit more elusive. Sleep isn't a switch-on, switch off, kind of device. It has to be planned for. Some say, even courted.
