From time to time, I’m asked about “jump-starting” weight loss”. What does this mean? Well, you’ve aimed for a jump-start if you’ve ever thought like this: “It’s so hard to lose weight….I want to go away to some program (or start a liquid diet, or do something else far removed from routine) and just get it off. It would be easier for me to keep it off after that.”
I never thought I’d say this, but the more I think about it and the more I actively, consciously work on being present with my partner in a loving relationship, the more I believe that long term monogamy is not only possible, but that it is possibly one of the secrets to attaining enlightenment.

Is "let's shack up" really the new "til death do us part?" This article will discuss and attempt to answer the questions, what is commitment today in the 21st century and are you clear about what role commitment plays in your relationship?

Pursuing Your Passion explores what it takes and why it is so important to mak

We are all citizens of the earth, and as such, we are all connected to this beautiful planet we live on. As the earth goes through changes, so do we. Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, some of us feel an internal shift as the seasons change, while others react in a slower, more subtle way.

Fear is an unbelievably common problem for singles. There are many reasons singles have for avoiding dating or even getting started. Little is more terrifying than risking our most vulnerable selves to a new person. And the older we get, the scarier it can be, what with a lifetime of bumps and bruises, both physical and emotional.

Last summer when my brother was getting married, I inundated him with the science of happily married couples. I wanted to give him a guide to not making the mistakes I had made. My “best woman” toast was very nearly a litany of advice.
