My Life Is Great, So Why Is This Thought Keeping Me Awake at Night?

Rebecca Sparrow | July 29, 2014 | UK Lifestyle
Wow, I thought. Life is great! GREAT! And for a moment I was flooded with happiness and joy about how well everything was going. And then, as it always does, sheer dread kicked in. This can't last, I thought. Oh my God, I'm too happy. Things are too perfect. It's just a matter of time before the other shoe drops. Horrible, awful things happen to people all the time. I should know.

Without a Net

Leigh Roche | July 29, 2014 | Healthy Living
Life will force us into circumstances and places we may not always feel we fit. How we adapt and remain flexible, grateful, and also humble is crucial to not only our happiness but for our survival.

Why Fi: Airplane Mode on the Ground, Part 1

Zachary Dominitz | July 29, 2014 | Healthy Living
Technology is like any tool -- its impact depends on its application. I have immediate access to more information than Einstein had in his entire lifetime -- and yet, somehow I feel that if he were alive, he would advocate long stretches removed from the distraction of constant inundation.

Lessons From the Zucchini Plant: Grow Where You Are Planted

Rachel Verlik | July 29, 2014 | Healthy Living
Sometimes life -- in this case, nature -- has a way of redirecting us. It tells us that the universe has greater plans for us and where we are meant to grow. It gives us a different environment to thrive, with ideal conditions to make us our best self.

Overcoming Challenges

SidneyAnne Stone | July 29, 2014 | Healthy Living
Adversity is part of life. How you overcome that adversity and rise to the challenges in your life can really start to define you as a person. For better or worse, that is something I learned early at a very early age. While some may find that tragic, I find it empowering.

What Is a Man?

Jack Anderson | July 29, 2014 | Healthy Living
Perhaps my friend, with her pat answer, stumbled upon a naked truth about men today -- that maybe we really don't have a clear definition of who we are, as men, and perhaps even worse, we can't even define it for ourselves.

What to Do With Our Grief Over the Mid-East Crisis?

Leeat Granek, PhD | July 29, 2014 | Impact
Turning that grief into aggression, rage, revenge and anger in the form of hateful posts, violent protests, or further divisiveness among people and nations is not the way to go if you care about human life, human rights, or peace.

Child's Play

I passed many happy summer days in that inflatable boat and it was with a childlike eagerness that I recently purchased a near replica for an upcoming lake camping trip. It was purchased officially for my son but in my heart it was really for me.

My Right Breast: A Man Facing a Breast Lump and Mammogram

B. D. Colen | July 29, 2014 | Healthy Living
Mammowhat?! Mammogram? Me? But I'm a man! And at 67? Is this some really, really weird dream I'm about to wake up from? How in God's name were they going to do a mammogram when there's practically no mam on my chest?

This Is Your Brain on Legal Drugs: Let's End the Drug War With a Minimum of Casualties by Following the Science

Arianna Huffington | July 29, 2014 | Politics
Human beings sometimes have a troubling inability to hold two thoughts in mind at the same time -- not only when the two thoughts contradict each other but even when they simply appear to be in conflict with each other but actually aren't. And nowhere is there a greater need for us to get past this tendency than when discussing the ongoing war on drugs. It should be possible to say that, as a first step toward ending this shameful chapter in our country's history, we should continue with the movement toward the decriminalization of marijuana. And we should also be able to say that as we decriminalize, we should take every step possible to minimize the harm, since there is scientific evidence of the dangers of pot on adolescents and young adults. So as we move toward legalization, let's put the science front and center.
