Overview

At one point or another, most of us have heard it argued that compromise is the key to happy and healthy relationships. It is, of course, true, that relationships, both personal and professional, require certain amounts of “give and take.” That being said, reaching a satisfying compromise is rarely an easy task! What may, on the surface, seem like a happy compromise may lead to bitterness or resentment if one party feels that they’re actually making a major sacrifice, rather than meeting their partner in the middle. The next time you find yourself negotiating with a roma... more ...

As the months become warmer and more pleasant, many of us find ourselves wanting to fall into fun, light-hearted summer relationships. A 2017 survey of young adults noted that nearly three-quarters of those surveyed had, at one time or another, transformed a summer fling into a longer-lasting relationship. Unfortunately, nearly half of those surveyed also noted that their flings had ended because one partner thought things were more serious than they were; more than half of those surveyed had also been caught off-guard when a summer lover informed them that their relationship wasn’t goin... more ...
Whether you’re trying to lose weight or simply live a healthier lifestyle, it’s important to eat a balanced diet. Maintaining a toned physique is often the result of staying physically fit while paying attention to the macronutrients provided by one’s daily diet. Carbohydrates, fats, and protein are the three macronutrients that are present in everything that we eat. Over the past few decades, carbohydrates and fats have alternatively been written off as “bad” macronutrients, with bodybuilders and fitness experts often praising protein-rich foods as the healt... more ...
Though most of us would like to think of ourselves as fully independent beings, we are, in reality, very much affected by the individuals we spend our time with. As adults, perhaps no one shapes our lives as much as our romantic partners. As we enter into long-term relationships, many of us gradually notice changes in our attitudes and behaviors, sometimes for the better, and sometimes for the worse. In healthy, flourishing romantic partnerships, individuals often mold one another into better versions of themselves. Researchers have dubbed this process the “Michelangelo Phenomenon,&... more ...

With the winter holidays far behind us and no upcoming celebrations in sight, most of us are unlikely to receive many presents in the months to come.

If you’re looking for ideas, the following products and experiences are a few things almost anyone will enjoy. A Few Culinary Indulgences ... more ...
Dr. Brené Brown, arguably the world’s leading expert on vulnerability, defines being vulnerable as setting ourselves up for “uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure.” In our everyday lives, as well as in romantic relationships, being vulnerable can be highly uncomfortable, if not downright terrifying! Brown, however, emphasizes the fact that vulnerability is at the core of many positive emotions, including love, courage, empathy, belonging, hope, and joy. If you’re feeling unhappy and disconnected from both yourself and others, there’s a good chance ... more ...
You might think that it’s the most physically beautiful people who get approached most when at bars and other dating hotspots. This, in fact, isn’t necessarily true! Simple body language cues, signaling interest, availability, and self-confidence, are actually the best means of luring in potential mates!Though body language is often an unconscious art, you can also be proactive in your use of body language, actively signaling your interest.
