Katie Seaver | February 10, 2016 | Healthy Living

What If You Weren't?

Michael Neill | February 10, 2016 | Healthy Living
So I went to the party as an experiment, not in pretending to be confident, but rather in seeing what would happen if I stopped lending credence to my "I'm shy" theory.

Greater Good Science Center | February 10, 2016 | Parents
When I was a child, my parents' fights could suck the oxygen out of a room. My mother verbally lashed my father, smashed jam jars, and made outlandish threats. Her outbursts froze me in my tracks. When my father fled to work, the garage, or the woods, I felt unprotected.

Healing Addictions: Does Getting High Equal to Getting Hooked?

Robert Weiss | February 10, 2016 | Healthy Living
So there must be more to addiction than just pleasure. Certainly pleasure opens the doorway to addiction, but it doesn't exactly push people through and then lock the door behind them.

This Is What Insomnia Feels Like

Sarah Malley | February 10, 2016 | Healthy Living
Most nights I wake up some time between 2:00 and 4:00 and stay up for a few excruciating hours, the kind where you can feel every minute pass. It's been this way for almost two years.

Better Living Through Psychedelic Chemistry? LSD, Psilocybin and Ketamine in the Headlines

Lloyd I. Sederer, MD | February 10, 2016 | Healthy Living
Like many others, I am hoping that what we learn from these drugs might open new pathways to treat some very disabling mental and additive conditions, enable some of us to quiet our fears when ill with cancer or close to passing, and possibly add a touch more creativity and flexibility to our world.

Karen Diaz, RD | February 10, 2016 | Healthy Living
Weight loss is not a cure for happiness, boredom, lack of confidence, or a spark for ambition. The obsession to get there can actually make you unhappier, stressed, isolated, and let's be honest, super moody.

Brian Whetten | February 10, 2016 | Healthy Living
Your comfort zone consists of all the things in life that you've already experienced and become okay living with on a daily basis. The skills you've mastered? Comfortable. The success you've achieved? Comfortable. The friends you've connected with? Comfortable. Anything new you want? Uncomfortable.
