Getting The Love You Desire

Getting The Love You Desire

Love is all around—so they say. It seems everyone is coupled up this Valentine’s Day. But whether you’re in a two-some, or going at it alone, there’s one element to having a great Valentine’s Day that promises a day full of love.

Sync Your Relationship - Pace

Sync Your Relationship - Pace

While there are many important factors that make up a successful relationship, none are as fundamental as the pace, rhythm, time perspective, and punctuality that you share. Thus, it is critical to “hear the beat” of your conflict in order to change it.

Coping with Friends who Flake

Coping with Friends who Flake

“Sorry, can’t make it today. Let’s plan something soon.”
How many times have you received this text or one of its variations from a friend canceling plans once again?

We all have that friend (or have sometimes been that friend) that cancels plans more often than following through with them. If you’re of the lucky few who haven’t experienced this, maybe you know someone who has.

Quick Fixes

Quick Fixes

I have a pretty large sweet tooth. Cheesecake, oatmeal raisin cookies, lemon bars, speculoos cookie butter, anything with butter and sugar has my name written all over it. These baked treats serve as a pick me up after a busy and stressful day. Eating these sugary foods is a quick way for me to feel pleasure. I can sit on my couch after a long day, eat some cookie butter, and almost instantly feel like a carefree child again, with little care for the stressors I was concerned about prior to that spoonful of deliciousness. I even notice my sweet tooth being activated when I’m not physically hungry, but just craving the taste of something pleasurable. Sweets are my quick fix.

Back seat driver!

Back seat driver!

Holidays are supposed to be fun, right? Getting away from it all, to discover a new locale is said to broaden our mind.  When you get out of New York City, however, you sometimes find yourself somewhere that necessitates the use of a car. Perhaps nowhere more so than the city of stars, Los Angeles, home to ‘carmageddon’, where residents spend an estimated 4 days of each year stuck in traffic, with no real effective alternative for getting around.
