Gay Pride, Individualism, and Change

What we’re constantly learning from the activism of the LGBTQ communities and researchers that are following their lead, is that there is no neat, binary system of gender identities. The more language we come up with to express the individualism of gender identity, for instance, the more individualism we espouse.

Why Do We Love to Complain?

Why Do We Love to Complain?

The negative effects of complaining far outweigh the immediate gain of an inflated sense of self. As research shows, relentless complaining wreaks havoc on our health and wellbeing by physiologically changing our brain and amping up the stress hormone, cortisol, which is related to high blood pressure and stress.

Olympic Fever

Olympic Fever

I am so excited about the Winter Olympic Games. While I’m not an avid sports fan, I feel we owe it to these dedicated, passionate and very gifted athletes to pay attention to what they’re doing. Beyond the sheer physical strength and stamina that’s necessary for these athletes to arrive at the Olympic Games, I’m also impressed by their psychological capacity to handle the stress of it all.
