Crazy On You

Jamie Silverman | Posted 06.24.2016 | New York
Jamie Silverman

In all of my conversations with friends about their dating lives, one thing has become abundantly clear; men make us crazy. Women who are bright, independent people, unperturbed by work place challenges and who relish the intrigue of most of life's curveballs, are reduced to crazy women when a man with whom they are enamored comes into the picture.

If Your Heart Thinks You're Happy

Siobhan Kukolic | Posted 05.27.2016 | Good News
Siobhan Kukolic

From what I understand, the heart brain sends messages to the head brain with regards to what hormones to release. So if you feel guilt, shame, fear or anger in your heart, it will direct your brain to release chemicals that are not good for your body over long periods. If you feel peace, love, joy, hope and happiness, it will direct your brain to release chemicals that are good for your body, especially when it comes to healing.

The good thing is that when we truly have had enough of something, our heart naturally comes to an agreement with our mind. Before that happens, my fellow feeler's don't even try to force practical thinking in a situation where your heart feels so strong because it will only fire back.
