If you're feeling unattractive lately, rest assured that you're like not a psychopath. Seriously.
There is a quiet despair among so many loving, smart, and deeply caring parents. They so desire to see their children manifest their greatness, to use their intensity well instead of having it go awry, and too often they see their best efforts to inspire respectful and responsible choices slip away to further levels of frustration.
Have you heard, now there’s even an “election addiction”? Aren’t you glad we’re through with that one for right now? But, seriously, addiction to alcohol, drugs, food, sex, smoking, shopping, video games, gambling, hoarding, work, cutting, texting and social media just keeps accelerating. It’s staggering, what in the world is happening to us?
With all of the chemical antidepressants out there trying to force us into better moods, it seems nature had a powerful one for us all along: semen. A new study shows the man-goo can have a positive effect on a woman's mental health.
Wondering how to have more fun? Maybe you are living in the past and missing opportunities in the present. The following secrets can help you come into the present and seize all the opportunities in your love and career lives. Step 1: Come back to now. Just like they say in yoga class, use your breath to come back to the moment. Do it when you’re home and at work.
We all feel a little crazy sometimes (for me, "sometimes" means at least three times a day), and while we're big proponents of therapy and other structured forms of mental health support, there are times when limited funds or busy schedules make it tough to get professional help.
Long-term relationships sometimes need a boost of inspiration to reinvigorate the couple, whether it be in the form of fresh date ideas or breaking routine for a trip. Color can also help.
Our species is living longer, getting married later, and having children a decade (or more) later than prior generations. Due to technological innovations and advances in science and medicine, we are improving our health and as a consequence, prolonging our lives. What this means according to scientists, is that middle age is coming on later. So that by 2050, 52 years of age will be considered middle age, instead of 40 years of age, which was considered middle age in 2000.
Psychologists at the University of South Brittany in France studied a group of 120 males (ages 18-21). The men were shown a 20-year-old woman (wearing different colored t-shirts) and asked to rate her attractiveness and how likely she would have sex on a first date.
People often joke that, despite our best efforts not to, we grow up to mirror the habits and behaviors of our parents. Unfortunately, this age-old concept now stretches even further, and it may be affecting romantic relationships.
I am pretty sure that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and sometimes we really like being tied up despite having a pleasant, if unremarkable upbringing and having great respect for our friends, lovers and neighbors. Mommy and daddy issues are frequently convenient excuses for "embarrassing" desires we've been taught to believe are "sinful."
In the first segment to this series I said that 50% of the population has a “broken picker”. This is because Chemistry is a result of a “hard wired” energetic pattern you were born with. The old adage that “Men are attracted to women like their mothers” and “Women are attracted to men like their fathers” is true.
Hitting over 70 million viewers in just its first week the Kony 2012 Youtube video is now considered to be the most viral video in history. Because of this video the African warlord Joseph Kony is now known by the majority, and the hope is that Kony will be found and brought to justice. Having the most viral video in history was no small feat for co-creator Jason Russell, or anybody for that matter. Having the amazing vision to do something extraordinary requires a brilliant mind.
Oh, Rush, Rush, Rush. Do you have any idea how deeply wounded you are? Do you not see how your thwarted view of the opposite sex is fueled by untold fear and confusion about what it means to be a man? Did you miss the sexual revolution of the 1960’s which has evolved into the awareness that sexual expression between caring, consenting adults can actually be emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually healthy?
As a therapist, I often hear couples complain that whenever one partner tries to get close, the other pulls away. It’s a painful reality that love isn’t always as easy to give and receive as we’d like to think. Many people have developed defenses that make them intolerant of too much love, attention or affection.
It's no secret that the male gender is a bunch of bumbling idiots when it comes to us ladies. Look at us! Our hips, our breasts, the way we smell, the softness of skin (which is completely natural and in no way attributed to mounds of moisturizer) and of course, just the fact that we are the fairer (read: superior) of the genders — we're the complete package.
