As you read this, I will no longer be here. So, in my absence, please, please, enjoy life. Take it by both hands, grab it, shake it and believe in every second of it. Embrace your loved one and if they cannot embrace you back, find someone who will. Everyone deserves to love and be loved in return.
Of course we get sucked in when the pretty nutritionist tells us that losing the weight is as simple as 1-2-3! Optimistic, we watch her video. But despite what we want to believe, we know that being told what or how to eat isn't the solution. Being told what and how to eat does not help us lose weight and keep it off. It just doesn't work. Period.
Certainly women are driven to ask about genetic testing given a strong fear of breast cancer and a strong belief that early testing saves lives, but USPSTF feared many of the new customers lining up for the test would be classified as the "worried well" who would be unlikely to carry the rare genetic mutation and hence would receive no benefit from being screened.
Business is global and more competitive than before and managers' loyalty is to the bottom line (and their bonuses). When spending 10 or more hours together in the workplace, relationships (romantic and otherwise) are bound to result. So, here are 10 reasons why a boss/employee relationship is not a good ide.
With youth unemployment and underemployment remaining at stubbornly high levels, Canada must build on the success of its college system. In Ontario, one of the most significant changes that government can make is to expand the range of career-specific degree programs at colleges.
A week after school starts, the Stepford Mom urge gives way to reality. Imperfect, chaotic reality. After a few years of experiencing the inevitable back-to-school hangover, I've learned a thing or two about realistically packing lunches. Here are some of my top lunch box tips.
Once we become aware of the fact that what we believe about ourselves is being revealed by the quality of our relationships, we may begin to openly and honestly question our beliefs, along with the experiences we appoint them. This in turn eliminates our limiting beliefs and makes room for the empowering beliefs that not only serve us, but also takes us in the direction that we want to go.
My HIV-positive child has legal protections that mean we don't have to tell you --schools, camps, parents, or anyone except doctors and dentists--about her HIV-positive status.
Healthy living conversations need a make over. Our vision is skewed and our motives lack staying power. Our goals are set by wanting to be sexy, not by wanting to be healthy. Depriving yourself to look a certain way won't make you healthy.
People are meant to be resilient and aim to recover from traumatic life events so when you lose a beloved pet, it is natural for those who care about you to ask when you are going to fill the void by adopting another lucky fur-child. Emotionally, we may process it as someone trying to get us to replace the love we just lost.
Picture a 6'2" professional football player, beating a four-year-old with a stick until the little boy is left with blood all over his body. While it may sound like a scene from a horror movie, this is sadly the awful truth behind the Adrian Peterson child abuse case.
I had long been contemplating designing a dish that contains all the colours of the seven main chakras as per yogic tradition/belief. And wouldn't you know it, I just so happened to have all the shades accounted for in my refrigerator.
Having a period isn't a curse. It makes you uniquely qualified to create and sustain life, if you so choose. Speaking of choice, only you can/should make the choice of if/when you would like to become a parent.
Leaving a job can often feel like a breakup. But what if that breakup is only a temporary? For many it is, and a study published this summer in Personnel Psychology, shows that "boomerang" employees, or workers who return to a company after leaving voluntarily, can comprise about 10 to 20 per cent of an organization's new hires.
There are many other policy implications that come with the spread of slower, safer city bikes -- here in B.C., a big one is around mandatory helmet laws. Many such laws were passed at a time when fast, forward-leaning cycling was the norm, and safe bike infrastructure was virtually non-existent. When drifting along at a walking pace, in an upright position, on a dedicated cycle track, the notion of legally requiring head protection certainly changes.
Women make up over half of the world's population but only a third of engineering jobs across the globe are held by women. I believe this problem, like many others, is significantly centered on mindset and perceptions.
Building the perfect dad brain requires a blend of smarts, morals and karate skills that can't be found in just one movie dad, which is why we used eight, including Clark Griswold, Atticus Finch and, of course, Indiana Jones.
My 7-year-old had asked about babies. So given our time constraints, I figured I could skip the hot-n-heavy part and go straight to the CliffsNotes version of baby-assembly mechanics.
My parents have been married for 45 years and I was with them this past weekend and they are definitely still in love -- they hold hands, tease one another and they have that special gaze when they look at each other when they think nobody is watching. I believe in real love -- I witnessed it my whole life. Here's what I think I know.
