How Well You Age Is All About Attitude, Says New Global Study

VANCOUVER—A simple shift in attitude could improve a lot for the world’s elderly population, according to a new global study.

Fun Fact Friday

Fun Fact Friday

  Psychology says, when we’re constantly wishing for something, we overlook everything we already have. The mushrooms in Mario games are based on a real species called ‘Amanita Muscaria’ that when eaten, make people feel like they’re growing.   Straightening out the physical aspects of your life can also bring clarity to the mental one. Drinking white or green tea every day will minimize the environmental damage done to your skin, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Happy Friday!  source:…

Life Is Wonderful vs. Life Is Woeful

Life Is Wonderful vs. Life Is Woeful

Reconciling the positive aspects of life with the terrible is challenging. In an era of incivility and aggression—an era of selfishness, greed and exploitation; with a wealth-poverty gap, political polarization, fundamentalist extremism, terrorism, fascist rhetoric, misogyny, gun violence, racism and anti-Semitism, war, and so much more—how can we possibly tolerate such terrible circumstances? On the other hand, in an era of exciting progress—scientific discoveries; magnificent art, writing and music; relative peace; international cooperation; feminist progress; philanthropy; exploration of the cosmos;…

Why (Some) Substitutes Don’t Satisfy Us

The more similar they are, the greater disappointment they evoke. Have you ever craved a full-fat chocolate milkshake but opted for a diet frozen yogurt because you wanted to “be good”?

Why Complaining Is Literally Killing You & Making You Sick

April 4, 2016    by Sharmini Gana We all do it — you know, complain about people or situations in our life. We may even call it “venting” in an effort to disguise our complaining, but when it all boils down to it, they’re both the same behaviour. On the surface, complaining may seem harmless — perhaps even helpful, as venting may make us feel better — but complaining can have serious physical and mental ramifications.

Real Preventive Medicine: The 5 Keys to Staying Healthy

Real Preventive Medicine: The 5 Keys to Staying Healthy

Elson M. Haas, MD What is called “Preventive Medicine” in America in the 21st Century is really more appropriately termed early intervention and early diagnosis.
