Make a DIY Vinegar Cleaning Spray With Orange Peels

Using vinegar is a DIY-er’s best friend when it comes to home cleaning, but the smell can be a pungent one. Granted, part of the benefit of using vinegar as a cleaning solution is that it’s a great deodorizer, too—your room will smell strongly like vinegar for a while, but give it a few hours and, like magic, the…Read more...

Tiger Woods …Comeback Story???

Could anyone have ever imagined Tiger Woods as a comeback story? A few years back, before his personal life and body fell apart he was the biggest thing in sport.

Happy New Year Psych Central readers! I hope your 2017 started off better than mine. After more than a year of remission from my autoimmune disease, I found myself at the ER. Thankfully, nothing serious happened. But it was a wake up call that 2017 needs to be about my health. Like you, I struggle with daily life when managing an illness. But I’m also grateful. Life is harder, but it also makes it more precious. We all struggle with something. Whether it’s a physical or mental illness, a painful...

The Most Pressing Reason Why We Need to Help Our Kids Get Moving

A headline crossed my desktop recently. And it made me sad:   “ U.S. ranks near bottom among countries for youth fitness, study says ” We’d ranked 47 out of 50. It didn’t concern me that we’d be among the losers in a global field day. After all, the pressure to always win, rather than to have fun, is a key reason why most kids in the U.S. drop out of organized sports by the time they’re  thirteen . The news made me sad because, chances are, the lack of physical activity among our...

I thought I was over my dysfunctional relationship with one thing. You know the “one thing” I need to make me happy. As soon as I lose this much pounds, I’ll be happy. As soon as I meet my soulmate, I’ll be happy. As soon as I marry him, I’ll be happy. When I have two kids (one boy and one girl), I’ll be happy. When I publish a book, I’ll be happy. I realized all I did was exchange one thing for another. But I realized that happiness wasn’t a destination. It was a choice. And it wasn’t even rea...

A lot of us fail at the life we desire because of one thing. You’re secretly waiting for permission. You were raised to believe you had to play by the rules to succeed. Surprisingly, rules to stifle your voice and emotions, downplay your talents actually left you on the road to unhappiness and further away from your true self. Who you were before adults broke your spirit is the real you. Rediscovering that person takes courage, support and the right resources, but when you uncover your true self...

Would you choose to live with debilitating pain or hardship? Would you pick parents who are cruel or uncaring? Would you decide to live a life filled with constant fear or sadness? Probably not.
