The one group most affected, however, appears to be the elderly , with millions of older adults across the Unites States feeling lonely.

Sexual Abuse?

When I was around 8 years old, my older sister would have me play “truth or dare” with her. She is 4 years older than me, and most of the time we had to share a bed. She would make me preform sexual acts on her and get upset or angry if I told her I didn’t want to. She rarely ever reciprocated, and if I brought it up or mentioned it later, she would act like it never happened. This eventually stopped around a year or two later, but she would still make me sleep in the same bed with her for years...

To Others Who Have Experienced Trauma as Children

Most of us have real anger and suffering living inside us. Perhaps in the past we were oppressed or mistreated, and all that pain is still right there, buried in our store consciousness. We haven’t processed and transformed our relationship with what happened to us and we sit there alone with all that anger, hatred, despair and suffering. If we were abused when were young, every time our thinking mind goes back over that event, it’s like we’re experiencing the abuse all over again. – Thich N...

The Health Benefits of Staying Organized: An Interview With John Linden

Ever since I moved into my very own office — away from the dirty laundry and magazine piles of my home office in the bedroom — I’ve been studying the relationship between space and productivity/mood. As I organize my files, hang paintings, and eliminate the first threats of clutter, I am paying special attention to what promotes health and creativity and what destroys it. Interior designer John Linden knows this subject well. He is a nationally recognized designer of mirrors and other wall décor...

Do you have a self-actualized personality? Maslow revisited

Abraham Maslow was the 20th-century American psychologist best-known for explaining motivation through his hierarchy of needs, which he represented in a pyramid. At the base, our physiological needs include food, water, warmth and rest. Moving up the ladder, Maslow mentions safety, love, and self-esteem and accomplishment. But after all those have been satisfied, the motivating factor at the top of the pyramid involves striving to achieve our full potential and satisfy creative goals. As one of ...

Neuromyth: Intrinsic Motivation is Driven by External Reward

One of the best motivators to learn is personal satisfaction.[1] But where does this internal drive come from? Many believe that students are motivated to learn because of what the people around them do, called extrinsic motivation. Starting in the 1970s, it was popular to believe the key to success lay within the now famous self- esteem movement.[2] This has proved, to a certain extent, to be validated by more recent research: A person’s own belief in his or her ability to learn actually influe...

Disillusionment with Society, Lack of Interest or Motivation to Contribute

I find myself increasingly disillusioned with society and with my peers. In my classes, I feel like there is a lack of focus on important issues and my attempts to provoke conversations on current affairs in the world and how they should be dealt with, specifically in terms of race, domestic policy, and global issues. I feel as if moving on to higher education will not be worth it. I feel if I were to apply myself to some field and envelop myself in my work that it would allow free-loaders to su...

Best of Our Blogs: March 19, 2019

Many of us grew up feeling a sense of inadequacy, a lack of self-worth. Maybe it’s because our parents were critical, neglectful or we felt different in some way. As we grew older, we developed illnesses that only added to the problem. Instead of a feeling of not enoughness that’s hidden, our chronic illness makes our imperfection, our lack of wholeness evident. But none of that matters when it comes to measuring your worth. It takes time and work to recover what you lost in childhood and recali...

When Your Recovery Is Frustratingly Slow

It seems like you’ve been ill forever. For weeks, maybe months, it has felt like a major effort to do life. On a good day, you might muddle through. On not so good days, it’s hard to get out of bed, much less shower or get to work. Major mental illness has knocked you down and out. Worse, it seems like you aren’t getting any better. Hold onto the fact that long term studies have shown that most people diagnosed with even the most severe forms of mental illness at least get relief from s...

"Even just showing a smidgen of frustration or irritation was considered weak and childlike...."

"For instance, one time someone knocked a boiling pot of tea across the igloo, damaging the ice floor. No one changed their expression. 'Too bad,' the offender said calmly and went to refill the teapot. In another instance, a fishing line — which had taken days to braid — immediately broke on the first use. No one flinched in anger. 'Sew it together,' someone said quietly.... Traditional Inuit parenting is incredibly nurturing and tender.... The culture views scolding — or even speaking to child...
