How to overcome 
an addiction

The truth about addictions is that they come in many forms, shapes and sizes. For some, it is alcohol, drugs, sex, work or relationships. For others, it is a combination of them all. Our addictions in life are similar in that they all take us to a point of excess. In many ways, this excess can derail us and keep us from focusing on the best our life has to offer.


So, how can you turn the ship around? How can you bring change - real change - to your life?

New compounds may treat depression rapidly with few side effects: New approach could revolutionize treatment

A new study by researchers at University of Maryland School of Medicine has identified promising compounds that could successfully treat depression in less than 24 hours while minimizing side effects.


Self-compassion proves more realistic and effective than self-esteem 


Nobody is perfect. Far from being a new or radical concept, most people can probably recall hearing this phrase since childhood. No matter how hard people might work, it seems they can always find someone who is smarter, more athletic or more attractive.


The self-esteem movement tells people that this doesn't matter: Something about every person is perfect, and that something will give individuals the confidence boost they need to achieve their wildest dreams. Aaron might have difficulties in math, but he's a terrific artist. Katie might struggle with making friends, but she earned the highest test scores in the state. The danger of the self-esteem movement, however, is that it still requires that individuals compare themselves to other people. If Katie does poorly on a test or Aaron gets rejected from art school, their self-worth could plummet.
