Competing for attention

Previously, I wrote about the health risks Moms and children face when births aren't spaced out enough. Of course, this isn't the end of the story. Finnish researchers have found that having several close-in-age children can put a strain on the…

Take the Break That Might Save Your Life

Stress is real.



In 2011, I was diagnosed with central serous retinopathy and the doctors made it very clear to me that it was directly related to how my body processes stress.  



I remember it like it was yesterday.  I sat at my desk…

Dear New Mama...

Becoming a mom is a whole bag of mixed emotions (whether you want to admit that or not). You're excited, anxious, terrified, happy, sad, panicked, overjoyed. Those two pink lines throw your mind into overload as you think about every possible thing you will experience and learn on this new journey. 

Our daughter was a surprise. A BIG surprise, but, we were ecstatic. And terrified. Utterly terrified.…

Shuffling our kids around

My parents separated and divorced when I was in junior high school. Although I am not sure of the exact terms of the custody arrangement, I can say that my brother and I lived with our Mom and visited our Dad for a few weeks during the summer. I am pretty sure this was because we lived in South Carolina and my Dad lived in Indiana.…

THE 'WORK-LIFE-BALANCE-THING'

People are working almost 24 x 7 these days. I have a lot of friends who work in corporate world and here is a short story on one of them:

A friend of mine had a very lucrative sales job and her team was based out of China and U.S.A. When I used to ask her about how that worked out, she told me that she would work with her team in the U.S.A. during the morning hours and then come back home, feed her kids, make them do their homework, put them to sleep and would be on calls with her…

Taking work stress home

My son loves my office. On the few occasions I've taken him to visit, he received lots of attention from my coworkers, treats, hot chocolate and got to play with the stuff at everyone's desk. He calls my coworkers "his coworkers" and requests to talk to them on the phone sometimes.…

Meals on the run

I am a fast eater. Probably too fast. Most days it takes me longer to prepare a meal than it does for me to eat it. This comes in handy for all those times I eat lunch at my desk (especially since I don't seem to suffer from heartburn), but it is definitely not something I want my son to inherit.…

What's your stress hour look like?

Most nights, when I get home from work, I immediately start cooking dinner. The first hour after I get home is a bit of a blur: There is food to prepare, people to greet and those morning chores to complete (if I didn't finish them earlier). If I can get dinner on the table by 6:45, then it is a really good day.…

Mommy stress is different than other kinds of stress

I've spent most of my Mommyhood as a working Mom. I know the pain of leaving your baby with virtual strangers at a daycare, the difficulties in working from home with a sick child and letting go of your work self to…

Cough, cough...I'm coming down with a case of stress

My left eye is twitching.

I didn't think that I was stressed out (because, I'm not busy anymore or anything), but my eye is twitching and that is a sure sign from my body that I am stressed. It happens whenever I have too much going on, or too much stuff on my to-do list.…

Why you should call your mother

There is a parody tea mug on my desk that says: Keep Calm and Call Mom. And there is a lot of truth to that.

Ever have one of those days where every-freaking-thing seems to go wrong?  And no matter what you try to do, it all just turns to crap?  (If you haven't, then it's safe to say that I kinda hate you, but I digress....)  Well, yesterday was one of THOSE kind of days, where if I would have looked up, I…

Navigating Life's Twists and Turns

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.

 

Remember playing car-racing games at the arcade, trying to stay on the virtual road while going as fast as you can? In those videos, sharp curves keep switching and obstacles suddenly appear, causing you to crash and burn if your reactions aren’t fast enough.

 

It may be fun to play a game, but what about when life itself mirrors this wild ride? Whether you're actually on a…
