Bad things happen. It's a reality of our world, but we have a choice. We can sit passively by and wait for disaster, or we can work together to try to stop it.

Gill Paul | July 2, 2015 | UK Lifestyle
You have Technicolour skin when you climb out of the water: lobster pink and mauve in my case. The circulation boost has great anti-ageing effects on the capillaries, leaving skin supple and glowing. Some claim it combats cellulite as well.

What the Media Gets Completely Wrong About Cruising

Cruiseline.com | July 2, 2015 | Travel
There are plenty of myths about cruising floating around the internet: they're full of old people, there's nothing to do, and so on.

For the majority of us, our loves and attractions are actually celebrated, from crushes to dates to proms to weddings. And we don't really need to give it a thought. There is a wild emotional divide between private shame and public celebration, and it is critical.

Going Head-to-Head With Your Inner Enemy: Using 'The Tools' to Unlock Your Full Potential

Omega Institute | July 2, 2015 | Healthy Living
I have a saying that peace is an active state of mind. We're trying to combine the sense of peace with the necessity for constant work. Peace was often defined as something languid and laid back, a state where you can fold your tent up, stop making an effort, and stop being vigilant. That's not what peace is.

Dear 17-year-old Em, I know that high school has not been easy on you. Although your peers would never know it because you are a great actress, always with your big cheerleader smile, I know that when you go home, you cry a lot. I also know that many...

Why a Compliment About My Eyes Was Hard for Me to Believe

Davina Klatsky | July 2, 2015 | Healthy Living
The acceptance of all people no matter what their difference is long overdue. We are so much more than just our outside physical identity. We are all individuals first, with our own distinctive talents and personalities. I've further learned through my own journey that it is possible to ultimately find nobility from even the most challenging of situations.

You and I can do the same thing. We can train our ability to delay gratification, just like we can train our muscles in the gym. And you can do it in the same way as the child and the researcher: by promising something small and then delivering.

In the Interest of Listening

Graeme Blackman | July 2, 2015 | Healthy Living

Tracy Crossley | July 2, 2015 | Healthy Living
Figuring out our partner can give us a false sense of security, inevitably they'll do or say something unexpectedly, throwing our world into turmoil. Now, if we trust ourselves to handle whatever comes our way, we're in a state of good feeling -- even if the s**t hits the fan!
