Why "Selfish" People Are Happier & Healthier

Being selfish is about connecting with, pleasing, entertaining, and loving yourself. When you do this, you prove to yourself that you deserve to be treated well. You wouldn’t put up with ill treatment from someone else. Reinforce that standard by being kind to yourself. Selfish people treat others badly, don’t have any real friends, and are incapable of love. Right? Wrong. 04/12/2016

Planning to Go on a Diet? One Word of Advice: Don’t.

"You’ll likely lose weight in the short term, but your chance of keeping if off for five years or more is about the same as your chance of surviving metastatic lung cancer: 5 percent. And when you do gain back the weight, everyone will blame you. Including you.
This isn’t breaking news; doctors know the holy trinity of obesity treatments—diet, exercise, and medication—don’t work. They know yo-yo dieting is linked to heart disease, insulin resistance, higher blood pressure, inflammation, and, ironically, long-term weight gain. Still, they push the same ineffective treatments, insisting they’ll make you not just thinner but healthier.
In reality, 97 percent of dieters regain everything they lost and then some within three years." If you’re one of the 45 million Americans who plan to go on a diet this year, I’ve got one word of advice for you: Don’t. You’ll likely lose weight in the short term, but your chance of keeping if off for five years or more is about the same... 03/11/2015

Remember This When Your Family Pushes Your Buttons This Holiday

Why Apologizing the Right Way Matters

A recent study shows, "...the most sincere, forgiveness-inducing apologies include saying “I’m sorry,” offering to compensate in some way for the wrongdoing, and taking responsibility." “It’s one of the largest, longest, and, we think, most definitive studies of the effects of conciliatory gestures on human conflict resolution ever conducted,” Michael McCullough, professor of psychology and lead researcher, said in a press release.
