How to deal with a food craving

It’s 9 p.m. You finally have the chance to sit on the couch and relax from a long day; it’s time for a little me time. You turn on Netflix and start scrolling to find something to watch.

Cultivating gratitude for your body

We live in a weight- and body-shape-obsessed society, and it’s easy (and normal) to develop body dissatisfaction. I recently heard the term “normative discontent,” coined in the 1980s by researchers who found widespread negative body image, particularly among women, in the United States. I really love it, I think it describes the issue perfectly, and also makes it so obvious how easily we fall prey to cultural norms, even if they make us miserable.

I was visiting with family one weekend when my niece offered me a chocolate chip cookie. In the past, I would have not only eaten that cookie, but just about every other one in the house. Cookies (especially chocolate chip) were one of my weaknesses. In fact, all things sugary were, and it wasn’t great for my health. Over time, I was able to get to a place where I could turn down that cookie without exerting a ton of willpower. Here’s what went into creating that moment:

I sent my sister's uterus a 'get well soon' card while she was on her period. Here's why.

I am not female. So as such, I can only infer what it's really like to have -- be on? Go through? -- your period each month. I don't envy you and the pain you go through. And as if physical pain weren't enough, there's also a grueling social stigma that walks hand in hand with that time of the month. It's that pain I want to address.

Dealing with makeup is tricky. You have to find what works for your skin, how to wear it and deal with lipsticks that smudge. But when it comes washing off your makeup, there is no gray area. The skin on your face is one of the most sensitive areas on your body and you need to take care of it. That means washing off all makeup before bed, no questions asked.

Studies show shoes are ruining our feet and here's why

Take a moment to examine the way you walk. Don’t be embarrassed, just take a casual stroll and feel the way your feet interact with the ground. Now, if you are wearing shoes, take them off and if you are barefoot, grab a pair of shoes and put them on. Stand up and walk again, and pay attention to the way you walk. Do you feel a difference? I made a fool of myself walking aimlessly around my office building the other day, but I'm not embarrassed because shoes really do change the way your feet interact with ...
