The High Costs of Beauty: Why Are we Willing to Pay the Price?

the high costsof beauty why arewe willingto paythe price
The pressure on both men and women to beautiful is enormous. Media images, advertisements, and pressure from others can overwhelm our judgment about the risks we’re willing to take. Weighing the risks and benefits of behaviors and procedures, and understanding our own motivations can go a long way toward keeping us healthy.

Insecurity is one of those feelings that everyone feels at least once in their lifetime. That being said, it doesn't make it any easier for you to deal with it.

Why are the holidays so hard after a loss? [More]

How to Correct Procrastination Habits

1. December 2014 02:55 by Marti Wormuth, MA | Comments

howto correct procrastination habits
Procrastination. It's one of those words that we kind of avoid talking about because we think that it's a "bad word" or that it only applies to those who are in certain periods in their lives. That being said, there are a lot of things that we can procrastinate on, and honestly, it doesn't just apply to work or school. We could totally avoid certain events in our lives, or we can push off conversations that we have to have with people that we love. For some of us, "putting things off" is in our blood and we try to do everything that we can in order to do so. [More]

Dealing with Postpartum Depression

dealingwith postpartum depression
One of the most joyful events that one can go through in their lifetime is having a child. Having a child is a wonderful thing, because you're bringing a life into the world and you are commissioned to take care of that child and love them. Obviously, some people aren't the best at that and they struggle with trying to go through with it, but in general, many mothers are ecstatic when their child is born. That being said, there are a lot of things that go on inside a woman's body before, during, and after pregnancy, and sometimes there can be mental health complications as a result of it. This is called postpartum ("after birth") depression. [More]

Getting a Good Night's Sleep without Using Sleep Medication

gettinga good nights sleepwithout using sleep medication
Sleep is a basic requirement for survival, as essential as air, food, and water. It is a period of time where the activity of our body and brain are on standby, so both can not only reduce the amount of energy used, but recharge vital functions. It is something we must all do about every 16 hours.

New Research: Fearful About Ebola? Strengthen Your Immune System

27. November 2014 08:55 by Dr. C. Wayne Winkle,Phd | Comments

new research fearfulof ebola
New research published in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases (Almendrala, 2014) studied reasons why children survive ebola more often than adults. One conclusion was that children have stronger immune responses to the disease than do adults. The levels of a protein called RANTE, which is a molecule that helps cells in the immune system communicate with each other, were higher in children than in adults. This protein also assists T-cells, the ‘killers’ of invading bacteria and viruses in our bodies. A possible reason for the higher levels of RANTE in children has to do with better health and a stronger immune system. This includes lower stress levels overall. [More]
