The Real Story On Chocolate and Depression

A new study has linked chocolate with depression once again. The article merely tells us what our intuition already knew, and the fact that chocolate makes us feel better at some point in our lives isn't exactly news. But how does chocolate make us feel better? Why? What's the reason we tend to crave chocolate more during PMS?

The researchers hum and haw about the… Continue

are your teacups spinning?

I take on too much. I know that about myself, can't help it and then I pay the price. I push, push, push and eventually I push too far and the world starts spinning and I don’t mean figuratively. I mean I wake up in the middle of the night and feel like I am on the Teacups at Disneyland. Every time it happens I react like Redd Foxx.

I Can Quit at Any Time

I joined the writers fan page The Nervous Breakdown a few months back because some of my Myspace friends who, like me, are whoring around Facebook now, and joined the group. If you can’t find me, I go where the traffic goes. Lemming is my maiden name.

"Spin With It" or "The Stupid Wasp"

I’ve been feeling anxious lately. Unsettled. Discombobulated, even. And if you’ve ever been combobulated, you know how unsettling the opposite of THAT can be. I’m only saying.



Perhaps it is the heat. Here I am hard at work inside, while the sun is shining away outside, all, “Come out and PLAY, cave dweller!” And I’m like, “Don’t interrupt! RUDE.”



Perhaps it is the sounds of imminent summer pressing against my bedroom window. The first wave of summer bugs and their… Continue

Stress Free Strategy-Week 10

Day 27 :: Some days

Stop pulling your hair out!

Don’t put up with things that don’t work right.

If it can be repaired, do so.



If not, get rid of it.

Stress Free Strategy # 9

Plan ahead





If it's predictable -- and many things are -- plan for it.



Take care of "to-dos" before they turn into crises, emergencies or late fees.



Some Examples:

Don’t let the gas tank get below a quarter tank.

In the event of a rushed morning before work, or worse yet, a real emergency, you won't have to make another stop; and you'll…

Teen Well Being

What's more challenging: Being a Teen or Raising a Teen?





The teenage years are a time of transition for both parent and child as each struggles with boundaries of dependence, responsibility and independence. We learn what is ours and what is not. But lets face it, parents have the advantage of years of wisdom and experience, while teens are just getting started.
