As hoped, Brian and I see eye to eye. The factors that influence what people choose to do with food matter, but so too do the foods chosen, and what they do to the people. We need not choose to focus on one of these, and neglect the other.
The magic of intimacy is that it can be of the soul. To be intimate simply means to be empathetically in tune with your partner, feeling their fears, desires, wishes, and needs as if they were your own.
In nutrition, though, we have long allowed foxes to guard the hen house. The easy access of Kraft to an apparent endorsement by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is only the latest example, and by no means the worst.
"They're finding bubonic plague on the subway!" a friend recently said to me. "How afraid should I be?" Some subway riders are scared. The disco...
I'm Miriam Ava, the ambassador of good taste. I share messages that matter, one Dispatch at a time. The launch of Dr. Mark Hyman's latest book The ...
You've likely heard that multitasking is problematic, but new studies show that it kills your performance and may even damage your brain. Research conducted at Stanford University found that multitasking is less productive than doing a single thing at a time.
Giving yourself up to avoid being called selfish is not self-responsible - it is manipulative and dishonest. When you give yourself up to avoid criticism, you are trying to control how another feels about you.
When the beverage industry, for instance, helpfully points out that no long-term, randomized trial has specifically implicated their sugary concoction in epidemic childhood obesity, we might consider that no such trial has ever implicated any given snowflake in an avalanche fatality, either. Perhaps avalanches are actually innocuous.
Anchor into your feelings of bliss. Invite her home, the goddess of your secrete island. Let her gaze imprint your body with the alphabet of stars, that bubbling creative surge known only to those who connect. Talk, learn, see. Realize, embody, remember.
My future sometimes feels hazy and, like most people, I'm afraid of failure. I say no to potentially exciting new ventures more often than not. But this is changing. I'm teaching the small, scared animal within to emerge from its burrow and greet the sun.
A study conducted by Brian D. Carter and his team at the American Cancer Society reveals that breast cancer, prostate cancer, liver damage, kidney failure and infections can be added to smoking's existing roster of health risks.
The workplace often brings out conflict. When you are passionate about your work and good at your job, you're not always going to agree with everyone. In fact, conflicting viewpoints are part of what makes a workplace creative and productive. But conflict doesn't have to ruin your day or damage your relationship with your colleagues.
There is nothing wrong with making a mistake. It's what you say to yourself after you mess up that matters. Your self-talk (the thoughts you have about your feelings) can either magnify the negativity or help you turn that misstep into something productive.
We already have evidence of declining levels of empathy in the population at large, with frequent recourse to technological interfaces rather than direct eye contact one of the reasons invoked. The doctor-patient relationship has degraded too much already in my opinion. I would hate to see it technologized out of existence.
House of Cards and its veteran writers and producers construct for President Underwood a domestic agenda built on the premise that joblessness is a public health emergency. Brilliant, since in fact, from a public health perspective, it most certainly is.
I'm not saying we are wrong. In fact, we may all be right, about everything. But we are all right about disparate and seemingly-competing bits of the same, whole truth. The result is that nobody can see that whole truth.
What if there was one choice you could make that would change everything in your life for the better? Actually, there is. It's the choice to move out ...
Wellness is a new buzzword. But what is it and when do we experience it? Before I was well I weighed 100 pounds. I worked out daily, attended aweso...
One of the most overlooked ways of optimizing your health and success is to flush anything, anything, out of your home that d...
A woman walks into a room, she is dressed well, she looks confident, she seems intelligent, successful. And yet, as she walks into the room, it is as ...
