Cybercommuting: The Psychology of Working from Home

cybercommuting the psychologyof workingfrom home
Telecommuting was a term phrased in the 1980s to describe how the introduction of cordless phones and faxes enabled employees to work from home (WFH), thereby putting an end to the concept of a full-time office job. The same is now being said of the Internet. Of course, working from home has not been accepted as widely as onlookers predicted, but cybercommuting is becoming increasingly common. In 2010, 24% of employed persons did some or all of their work at home, while last year, the number of employees working regularly from home was 10% in the US alone. Like any other phenomenon prevailing in our society, WFH culture also comes with its own psychological effects. [More]

Apart from stress and known eating disorders, addiction to food has also been a topic of major studies. The Rudd Report (2007)4 states that these studies have revealed that there are striking similarities in use and withdrawal patterns of sugar and of classic drugs of abuse. Addiction to food can also be triggered as people move away from other substances like tobacco and alcohol, and there is a possibility that food and classic addictive substances compete for the same brain pathways. Indeed, many food additives can affect the brain in ways similar to drug abuse. [More]

when parents disagree
Disagreeing about parenting approaches is inevitable when you have kids. It will most likely happen time and time again. The conflict may be over something as simple as allowing dessert close to bedtime, should they be allowed to sleep over at a friends or as daunting as addressing risky behaviors among teens like drug and alcohol use. Regardless of the size of the dilemma, parents can move past conflict and towards compromise with the right frame of mind and, most importantly, keeping a dialogue. Here are a few tips for addressing disagreement. [More]

Practicing Presence

practicing presence
How often can you say that you are fully present in the moment? It’s a hard question to answer, especially if you haven’t asked what that actually means. The ability to be in the moment involves attention and presence to experience a moment with all its fullness. That is, your mind, your body, and all your senses are focused in that moment.

There is no denying the fact that factors like education and parenting style play a vital role in developing the personality and learning skills of a child, but another factor that significantly influences the personality of a child is birth order. Factors like communication skills, cognitive skills, decision-making abilities depend on the birth order of a person. Not only this, birth order also influences the psychology of a person. Factors like the number of siblings, age gap between siblings and birth order decide the personality of a child (Leman, 2009). [More]

Balancing Work and Family

balancing workand family
There are only 24 hours in a day, and we have to choose how to use them. Often we feel stressed because there is not a balance between our responsibilities and what we enjoy. Our lives naturally fall out of balance from time to time, so we have to set time aside to assess how things are going, and what we might need to change to make sure our daily lives reflect what’s important to us.

This is the reason that a number of people suffer from stress during tax filing season (Palmiter, 2014). Tax stress syndrome, as the name implies is a form of stress triggered by mental pressure during tax season. [More]

the psychologyof loneliness
There is no way a person can completely avoid stress, but an easy way to vent out depression is discussing problems with friends, family or an expert counselor. However, the extent to which a person interacts with others depends on his/her personality and communication skills. For example, an introvert finds it difficult to express his/her emotions as compared to an extrovert. Moreover, the impact of stress on mental and physical health also depends on the ability of a person to deal with stressful situations. FB- Despite social media, text, and email communications, people are lonely. In this article, Theravive discusses the causes, symptoms and impact of loneliness on human psychology and overall health [More]

We hear a lot of helpful tips about ways that spending quality time together helps couples strengthen their marriage, find new, common interests and keep the relationship fresh. Trying a new hobby, meeting new friends and even just making time for regular date nights are just a few examples of ways couples can grow closer in the relationship, especially during those times when the stuff of everyday life seems to risk squeezing out any room for intimacy (and not just the bedroom kind).But there’s another, often-overlooked activity that some couples report has done wonders for their relationship: community service.
