These Are “Apparently” The Names Of The Children Who Are The Nicest

But I’m not buying it Names say a lot about a person and there’s a lot of debate about whether people grow into their names or their names define them from birth. I’ve heard parents say things like “we were going to name him Derek but then once he was born we realized he just was a total Sean” or “we chose Emily because as soon as we looked at her she immediately looked like an Emily to us” which I’ve honestly never understood. Like unless your son strolls out of the womb and shakes your h...

Practicing self-compassion boosts immunity and healing, top British researchers say

Practicing self-compassion is shown to reduce arousal and increase parasympathetic activation in a new study. Feeling comfortable in your skin leads to higher-order emotions, such as empathy and compassion. Buddha realized this millennia ago when prescribing compassion as the path to self-realization.

Lack of basic research hiding behind 'clean meat' hype
