Sometimes Being Bossy Is a Good Thing

I caught my heart heading to a pit of discouragement for spring break. Although it was supposed to go to the beach with my family and me, it was not cooperating. We had been hit by one emotional and financial crisis after another. Early in the week, a close friend found out she had a large tumor, likely ovarian cancer. The day after that, our air conditioner broke again. A week before, we found out our international adoption expenses weren’t deductible that year, and we would now owe significant...

Masculinity is in crisis. Who’s to blame?

Male power is a paradox, says Michael Kaufman. Society is male-dominated, yet despite their advantages men still die younger than women, are more likely to commit suicide, to be in prison, and to be addicted to drugs.Masculinity is a millennia-year-old idea that no longer functions well in the modern world. Advice like "be a man" backfires on men the most, for all the reasons above.There is a growing movement that blames women for the so-called attack on masculinity, but Kaufman doesn't buy it. ...

How to Let Conflict & Change Be Your Teachers

What can conflict and change teach you? Life is full of potential friction. We expect relationships to last forever, situations to have certain outcomes, jobs to last longer than they do. However, life tends to serve us what we need to grow and evolve rather than what will keep us safe. How we tend to the pain of those disappointments — both big and small — define whether we get stuck in an eddy of emotional turmoil, or ultimately evolve to our next level of growth. When faced with disappointm...

Experiencing awe is linked to decreased inflammation

In the Savvy Pscychologist, clinician Ellen Hendriksen of Boston University’s Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, looks at the profound psychological and physiological impacts of feeling awe, whether it comes from looking up at the expansive night sky or hearing an incredible musical performance. She reflects on scientific evidence that awe makes us "feel small" and humble, nicer, and expands our worldview, all of which seem like fairly obvious effects. But Hendriksen also points to a rec...

Some national prevalence estimates for loneliness are alarming. Although they can be as low as 4.4 per cent (in Azerbaijan), in other countries (such as Denmark) as many as 20 per cent of adults report being either moderately or severely lonely.

Why family group texts cause anxiety, and how to escape them

I am not known for being especially easy to get hold of via text. I tend to keep my phone on silent as the high-pitched ping of an incoming message makes my cheeks flush with dread. I wish I could mute all my contacts' notifications – sorry, mom, dad, and everyone I care about, but communicating with you makes me incredibly anxious. But, obviously, that's not feasible. I do, however, mute text threads with more than three people, and I opt out of family threads entirely. It is a small gesture, b...
