Get Out and Bike: A Social Distance Interview with a Long-Distance Biker

I recently had the joy of a socially-distanced interview with my friend Claudia, who is one of my role models because of her self-care regime. She watches her diet, exercises, does Transcendental Meditation, goes on long bike rides, and—these days—socially distances. I am particularly interested in how biking helps to sustain her well-being and defies […]


Homeschooling During Self-Seclusion: Interview of a School Psychologist

Is being homebound getting to you? Social distancing and its consequences of being unable to interact with friends and peers and being restricted to our home (and yard if we are fortunate enough to have one) also affect our children’s physical and psychological health.

A High-Fashion Designer Breathes Life into Facemasks

These days, many women are staying home in pajamas or sweats. Going out to the mailbox and for groceries might be the most fashion-demanding events of the week.

Air pollution levels are down around the world. Data on emission reduction since people stopped working and traveling as a reaction to covoid-19 has been reported by the European Space Agency and NASA.

Single, Happily Ever After

There’s a difference between married and not married—and there’s also a difference between not married and preferring to be single. Not married means that you’re open to pursuing love interests and dating. Preferring to remain single means you’re settled in yourself—by yourself.  In our collective societal psychology, there was, in the past, a tendency to […]


Rethinking Drinking: How to Reduce an Alcohol Problem

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism reported in January that the number of women drinking dangerous amounts of alcohol—leading to acute overdoses, or in combination with drugs, or to death—has been rising sharply in the United States. Researchers noted that the rate of deaths from alcohol abuse among women increased an astounding 85 […]


What About Mom Burn-Out?

Every mother naturally wants her child to thrive. These days our society has a way of piling on the pressure to create high-performance children. With that—and the fact of more mothers working outside the home than ever before—being a mother has become more demanding and difficult. We’ve all heard terms like nurse burnout and teacher […]


Anxious About Health?

On a website discussion page, a woman confided, “…I have become so anxious about my health, every little ache, pain or twinge has my brain going mad! Before I would have ignored it or even not noticed it, but now I’m convinced it’s something really serious! It’s ruining every part of my life! I feel […]


Vote for Peace

Endless wars, relentless fear of terrorism, revived cold wars, and runaway military spending plague our modern American life. With new elections on the horizon, we may wonder how to make choices that will secure a healthy state of peace within our nation and between all nations. It may just be that the first step is […]
