6 Mistakes to Avoid in Your Recovery from Depression and Anxiety

Recovering from depression and anxiety call for the same kind of shrewdness and amount of perspiration as does running a 4,000-person company. I say that having never done the latter. But hear out my logic: great leaders must master impeccable governing skills, develop the discipline of a triathlete, and build enough stamina to manage multiple personalities. And so does anyone wanting to get outside of her head and live a little. So I think it’s fitting to translate the insight of a book about ...

Mental Health Professionals: US Statistics 2017

The mental health workforce in the United States is barely keeping up with the growing need for its services.

Getting Back to Work When You’ve Been Depressed

“I’m still too depressed to find a job,” says one young man. “I lost my car when I was so depressed so how can I even look?” From a young woman: “I don’t have the energy for a full-time job and I don’t feel ready to be around people.” And from a middle-aged guy: “Who wants a 50 year old who’s been in the hospital?” After months of treatment for acute depression, these people are feeling better. They are taking better care of themselves. Their sleep is good. Their medications are working...

The Different Things You’re Doing That Steal Time—And How to Stop

Many of us lament that we don’t have time for the things we’d like to do—catch a movie on a weeknight, take a fun dance class on a Saturday, start a creative project, go for a run, read, take a weekend getaway. But the reality is that many of us are doing things we don’t actually need to be doing. When we eliminate those things, space suddenly opens up, and we naturally create more time. According to time management expert and bestselling author Laura Vanderkam, knowing what to eliminate...

Why We Don’t Perform at Our Best and How to Change That

Riley Jenkins, a consultant at an elite firm, prides herself on responding to her clients’ emails within an hour. She works every Saturday. She never takes a flight that doesn’t have internet access, so she can work (and of course attend to her inbox). She stays up late working on clients’ proposals. She always picks work over her personal life. And her face is always in her phone. But none of this makes her a star employee. And she doesn’t feel any more caught up. Instead, she constantly fe...

8 Ways to Instantly Feel Empowered to Face an Upcoming Challenge, A New Opportunity or a Tough Day

You’re about to ask for a promotion at work. You’re about to ask for a raise. You’re about to resign from your 9-to-5 to start your own business. You’re about to take a step toward expanding your business. You’re about to give a speech. You’re about to have a hard conversation. You’re about to say ‘yes’ or say ‘no’ to a significant opportunity. You’re about to advocate for yourself—which is something you’ve actually rarely done before. And you need to feel empowered.

When You Feel Uninspired at Work—And Can’t Quit

It’s another day at the office. Another boring, blah day. In fact, lately every day has felt this way. You’ve even thought about leaving, maybe fantasized about it on your lunch break or while sitting in another meeting you didn’t really need to attend. But right now, that’s not an option. Because money is tight. Because you’re the breadwinner. Because you carry the benefits for your family. Because you’re trying to get a mortgage or pay off your credit card debt. Because of any number of—valid,...

Why Happiness Is the Ultimate Currency

My friend Avi is a great barber. His customers, myself included, refer to his golden hands — his ability to satisfy my son’s desire to look like Ronaldo, or a woman’s desire before her daughter’s wedding to look like Grace Kelly. Putting his phenomenal skills together with his sound business sense, Avi could have easily expanded his business far beyond his little salon. So I asked him one day why he chose not to grow his business by adding a bigger place in a more central location in the city, o...

3 Ways to Create Positive Relationships in the Workplace

Throughout a typical work week, employees will interact more with their colleagues than loved ones. Positive interactions between employees not only makes for a better work environment but can foster higher levels of job satisfaction and productivity. Negative or toxic relationships in the workplace can increase stress levels among employees, as well as feelings of isolation. Both stress and isolation negatively impact employees’ mental and physical health, lowering employee morale and motivati...

Do Personality Tests Really Mean Anything? 5 Things to Keep in Mind

Are you an Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging personality (INFJ)? Maybe you’re an ENTJ or INTP? Don’t know what I’m talking about? You obviously haven’t checked your Myers Briggs personality type. We love a label in our society. It’s so much easier to identify where we belong, whom we belong with and why when we all have tidy labels to our names. Whether it’s the vagueness of your horoscope, the procrastinating fun of the  What Hogwarts House are you?  quiz , or the slightly more credib...

The Case for Downtime

I’m scared of downtime. That’s right, relaxation is downright uncomfortable for me. Part of me craves it like every other human being. Yet as soon as it is here, I twitch. I pace the house. I don’t know what to do with my hands and my legs — even more importantly, my brain. Sometimes the quiet space is too intolerable so I fill it with mindless activities like scouring Facebook or checking how many Twitter followers I have. My busyness is, at times, a defense mechanism whereby I can prove that I...

9 Productivity Hacks for Working from Home

Working from home can be incredibly convenient. You get to skip the long commute and rush-hour traffic. Your schedule is flexible, and can bend and bow to fit whatever you need to do (like picking up your kids from school and actually getting to the bank before it closes). But working from home isn’t without its challenges. For instance, distractions are aplenty: dishes in the sink, piles of laundry, and interruptions from everyone from your kids to UPS to your next-door neighbor. It’s also hard...

6 Life Lessons I Learned Last Year

Danish philosopher and theologian Søren Kierkegaard once wrote, “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” The beginning of a new year is an appropriate time to look back over the lessons learned from the mistakes and experiences of previous months. In 2018, I wrote two letters of resignation, grieved the ending of two significant relationships, and spent several weeks on a hospital waiting list for severe depression and weight loss. I fumbled, got lost, and confront...

Transitions: Outward Appearances Do Not Always Reflect the Struggles Within

Transitions can be hard. All of us go through many uncharted periods during our lifetime whether it is going to college; changing a career; becoming a parent; caring for parents; enduring a breakup or grieving the loss of a loved one. These life shifts are unavoidable. Acknowledging and understanding them can help you navigate the changes. One the most difficult times in my life was transitioning out of a sport I loved. I was a professional figure skater. My commitment and love for skating w...

5 Mindful Ways to Create a Healthy Workplace Culture

In the age of increasing work and life separation, how do we reconcile human needs for care and support within workplace cultures of fast-paced productivity? Vocations vary far too widely in operations to standardize mental health supports or provision of resources. Unlike schools or courts, places of work (even within the same sector) are differentiate in functioning and mission, effectively excluding the ability to legislate on such affairs. This article provides some tips for workplace emplo...

How Empathic People Can Set Effective, Loving Boundaries

You’re a highly empathic person. You fully and intently listen to others. You tend to focus on others’ emotions, often feeling them more so than your own. In fact, it’s like you feel someone else’s pain deep inside your bones. It’s that visceral. And you frequently find yourself utterly exhausted because tending to others comes more naturally to you than tending to yourself, according to Joy Malek, a marriage and family therapist who specializes in working with people who are intuitive, empathic...

Key Factors in Being a Better Leader

Leadership is not about your hierarchical role — parent, boss, teacher, elected official. It is not about being better or smarter than anybody else, nor is it about comparing oneself in relation to anybody else in any way. It is about how you act. People who practice the following actions naturally become better leaders. That is to say, others will look to them in a healthy way. On the flipside, even people who possess some type of hierarchical authority may struggle to be effective if they i...

Making Mondays Easier and Much More Enjoyable

Mondays. Ugh. The very word sparks feelings of sadness, boredom and overwhelm. Mondays just seem downright dreadful. Which is understandable. For so many of us Mondays signal the start of the workweek, and the end of the weekend, which was likely relaxing and free from obligations and responsibilities (unless you have kids…just kidding…sort of). It’s also hard to love Mondays when you don’t love your job. Plus, there’s a plethora of memes about how catastrophically miserable Monday is. Which ...

The Best Time Management Techniques for Living a Fulfilling, Satisfying Life

Time management isn’t about cramming more tasks into your day. It isn’t about reaching Inbox Zero. It isn’t about saving several minutes by pre-sorting the laundry (or not) or minimizing trips to the trash can (yes, that’s really a tip from a magazine article). It’s not about making lunch the night before or even multitasking (or single-tasking).    Time management is about “choosing well,” said Leslie Garcia, LCSW, a psychotherapist and founder of Counseling Space in New York City.

Feel Like You Live for the Weekend? Small Ways to Recharge During Your Week

So many people feel like they just need to get through their workweek so they can finally relax and unwind on the weekend. They feel like they’re running on a treadmill they can’t get off from Monday to Friday, and on Saturday and Sunday, they can finally collapse on the couch or actually have fun. One reason we feel this way is that we don’t have clear boundaries between work and home, so the weekend is when we let ourselves be “off,” said Alicia Hodge, Psy.D, a licensed psychologist and speake...
