Inspiration and support to live your healthiest life.
Traveling by air used to be fun and exciting. The airport was bustling with family reunions and emotional partings. Everyone was flying to far flung destinations. Meals were served on dainty little plates. After a few hours you emerged into a totally different city.
It isn’t the same anymore. Security screenings, baggage fees and crowded planes make air travel stressful and exhausting. People have to check websites to figure out what’s allowed and how to pack it.

I've interviewed for about five major jobs in my day (more than one interview for a few), and I've also been the interviewer. I've got to say, I'm sometimes shocked at what people wear.
While every industry has different standards for their employees' appearances, there are some general rules that I encourage women to follow when…

The definition of catastrophe is an event causing great and often sudden damage or suffering. The early morning shooting and killing of 12 people and wounding of others as they eagerly began viewing the latest Batman movie; “The Dark Knight Rises,” tragically qualifies.
As we shockingly take stock of this horrific event, we once again dare to imagine the pain of the families or resonate with memories of having faced similar pain. In the face of traumatic loss we are left without…Continue

My fiancé and I just returned from a fantastic vacation to Paris. We had been plotting the sights we'd see and the cuisine we'd taste for months, but secretly I was most excited to scope out the elusive and oft-admired French women in their natural habitat. Rumors abound that French women possess secrets to lasting beauty that we Americans can only dream about.

Seventy-two percent of women have not received any treatment for menopausal symptoms, according to recent study conducted by Lake Research Partners for the Endocrine Society.
There are some foods I eat a million ways and eat almost daily—tomatoes, onions and garlic come to mind.

But, I received a press release…Continue
People often raise the question as to whether there can be happiness in a sexless marriage. Professionals wonder about and research the same question.

According to Epstein, a sexless relationship is defined as one in which the partners have had sex less than once a month or less than 10 times a year. Others writing in the field take the word more literally…Continue
