    Further Secrets of Adulthood:   When it comes to human nature, paradoxes abound. Accept myself, and expect more from myself. I’m very like other people, and very different from other people. (This was one of my key insights about habit-change, in Better Than Before.) Use my time efficiently, yet also make time to play, to wander, to read at whim, to fail. Keep an empty shelf, and keep a junk drawer. (Want to see my empty shelf? Look here.) Work can be play, and play can be work. Think about myself so I can forget myself. Do you find it harder to take yourself seriously, or not to…

    30 Oct 2014 | 8:28 am
    By Sean Doyle - I tend to be leery of books that promise “the 10 steps to” this or “the five principles of” that. Too often they get caught up in their own cleverness, rely on forced acronyms or become a mix of hyperbole and impotence. David J Pollay’s latest book, The 3 Promises is different. It is simple, honest, and has the potential to change your life. David Pollay, one of the early leaders in applying the findings from positive psychology, asks us to make 3 simple promises to ourselves every day: Find joy.   Do what you love.   Make a difference.

    By Geoff Fallon -    Office workers on email According to a 2012 McKinsey study reported by Chui and colleagues, employees on average spend 28% of their workday reading and responding to e-mail. Digging deeper into the amount of e-mail usage, Jennifer Deal describes a 2013 study that surveyed a group of executives, managers and professionals (EMPs) and found that 60% of EMPs with smartphones are connected (primarily via e-mail) for 13.5 hours or more per workday and spend about five hours connected during the weekend. This amounts to a 72-hour workweek. In response to this…

    By Daniel Tomasulo - I ran out of money the last year of my PhD in psychology and had to get a full job. I took a position running an experimental group home to take the lowest functioning people out of Willowbrook, the infamous New York State institution know for its negligence and abuse of residents. It was overwhelming. I lived in the group home and worked 18 hours a day. Between trying to prevent clients from killing each other, studying for my comprehensives, and planning my dissertation I was getting frazzled. The staff were quitting on me left and right, the rules and regulations that…

I’ve been reading Brian Little’s interesting book, Me, Myself, and Us: the Science of Personality and the Art of Well-Being.

    Weirdly,  as an author, it’s hard to say when a book is “done.” I finish the first complete draft — then it’s “done.” But then I do endless numbers of edits. Then that’s done, and I send it to my editor. Then it goes through several stages, of which the last is “second pass pages.” That is the last time I can make a change to the book — and if I make a change, it had better be pretty small. At this point, the book is in almost final form. It looks like the book (it’s a huge morale booster to see the text formatted to…

Ancient philosophers and contemporary scientists agree: strong relationships are a key to happiness. We usually get a little lift from engaging with other people.

    The Past is your Reservoir of Happiness, from The Psychology of Wellbeing Photo courtesy of Tal Bright Happiness is found in the present moment. At least that is the popular narrative in Western culture where there is a growing appreciation for the benefits of mindfulness. But I have argued that in addition to “The Power of Now,” there also exists “The Power of Before and After.” We don’t only benefit from the mindful appreciation of the present moment, but also from reminiscing and appreciating our past, or from planning, hoping for, or anticipating the future. I was reminded of…

    Fish Out of Water Syndrome, from The Psychology of Wellbeing Earlier in my life, I lived in Mexico for a few years. Being a “fish out of water” in a new culture is an amazing experience. It is challenging, stressful, and hard work. But it’s rewarding too. Every day, every relationship, every interaction is an opportunity for learning and growth. I remember at one point, after I had already been in Mexico for around three years, I was still learning new things every day. I was learning the language, learning the culture, and even learning more about my own culture from the contrast.

  • Letting Go Of Baggage

    Walter Jacobson
    26 Oct 2014 | 10:00 am
    Letting go of baggage is a choice. First, you choose to recognize your baggage rather than be in denial about it. Second, you choose to recognize that you have the power to let go of your baggage and make better choices. Third, you make better choices. Fourth, you repeatedly, consistently, persistently make those better choices until you have extinguished your self-destructive self-definitions and replaced them with healthier ones.

    Benzodiazepines (aka tranquilizers) such as xanax, ativan, valium and klonopin can be very helpful on an intermittent or short term basis but when used daily, continuously, chronically they are a prescription for disaster because on a long term basis they are extremely likely to cause cognitive impairment and memory deficits, among other things, and can increase your odds of getting Alzheimer’s Dementia.

    Yes. People can really change. It’s not easy but it can be done. With vigilance, diligence, practice, persistence, and perseverance, it can be done. How do I know this for sure? Because I have changed. I have used the cognitive and spiritual tools I share in my posts and videos to transform myself, to eliminate self-sabotaging behaviors, to release judgments, to accept and forgive, to communicate more effectively. And the end result has been happiness and inner peace. It worked for me. It can work for you. But you need to do the work. The post Can People Really Change? appeared first on…
  • What Can You Do To Convince Someone You Care About That They Are An Alcoholic or Addict?

    One can try an intervention, bringing friends and loved ones together to confront the person. One can try “tough love” which involves discontinuing any enabling behavior, and letting the person know that they must help themselves and take steps towards abstinence and recovery if they want continued support. But the truth is that there is little one can do to convince an alcoholic or addict that they have a problem if the person is in denial. Usually they must totally trash their life and “hit a bottom” before acknowledging they have a problem. The post What Can You Do…

Would you then pay for the next customer’s meal, continuing the flow of generosity? The check is zero because the person before you pays for your meal and you pay for someone else. Nipun Mehta, speaker and founder of ServiceSpace, an organization whose goal is to spread kindness, says an act of compassion breeds more compassion.

Every Saturday afternoon Ms. Judy waits on the streets of Chicago’s South Side for the women of Sisters on the Street to pray with her. And when some of the sisters show up late, she notices. Residents have sought ways to deescalate the violence without involving the police or the criminal justice system. “There’s 15 of us. If we’re not there by 11:30, she’ll walk up to each one and say ‘You’re late. You’re late. You’re late today,’” recalled shift leader Tasha Thompson.

    This time of year, the fabric that separates our world from prowling ghouls is at its thinnest. But what really keeps us at YES! Magazine up at night are the international trade agreements constantly being negotiated by the United States and its partners—each one more terrifying than the last. These deals have a way of favoring corporations over people. How can something as pleasant-sounding as “free trade” be more threatening than a zombie apocalypse? The devil’s in the details, and the fine print on some of these agreements is enough to curdle a bucket of blood. Whether it’s…

    "I pedal everywhere, slowly, on a bike that announces 'Cancer on Board.' I defy every attempt to limit me to my diagnosis as I dare the world to ignore it."  Illustration by Julie Notarianni. Dying inevitably follows living. What makes for a good death in a just and sustainable world? I think about this a lot these days. Four years ago, at age fifty, I was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer. Active and fit, it took a collapsed lung and two broken ribs before I realized I had a big problem, the ultimate challenge of life: facing my own death. I defy every attempt to limit me to my…

Sure, I can project confidence easily, but deep inside, I usually worry that I don’t have what it takes. That I’m just not good enough. Good enough for what? Could be anything. That doesn’t even matter. It’s a feeling that overshadows everything else. What if I told you that I.. .. really don’t know what I am doing most of the time? .. crash and burn a lot? .. fight to feel confident on a regular basis? .. have to work at it…

    I felt like a KANJOOS. That’s an Indian word for “miser/scrooge/stingy”. It was a Friday night and I had gone out with friends.  We’d seen a show, and headed on to a pub after for a bit. I was acutely conscious of the fact that my wallet was lighter than a hummingbird, and that I really couldn’t afford to be out spending like I was. Having eaten before going out and being an occasional drinker, I’d decided to conserve my limited funds – music, dancing, friends were all I needed that night.  But here was the dilemma – how could I keep this up?!

I literally cannot remove myself from my life because I live with my aunt and uncle. So if I am constantly surrounded by negativity, what can I do?

  • Are You Making Your Wellbeing Harder Than It Needs To Be?

    23 Oct 2014 | 1:02 am
    What are you willing to try when it comes to improving your wellbeing?  Would you eat dirt to eliminate bad bacteria?  Garden under the moonlight to beat depression?  Plunge into icy water to improve your immune system? Is it just me or does it seem like each day there is another weird and wonderful way being recommended to improve our wellbeing? Don’t get me wrong I’m open to trying the odd “woo-woo” idea in the name of better health, but I was recently reminded by a wonderful group I’m coaching that the very best place to start when it comes to flourishing is by getting the…

    11 Oct 2014 | 10:01 pm
    What kind of leader are you? No matter what your job title says, each of us have the ability to consistently bring out the best – or the worst – in other people around us. So how does the way you show up, impact others around you? For most of my career I was so focused on just getting through each day myself, that I only thought about my impact on others when I ran into difficulties. You know people who just wouldn’t do what I needed them to do. People who whined or complained about my approach. Or people who just flat out didn’t seem to like me (I can’t imagine why!). Running on…

Is your need to get things “just right”, to avoid failure at all costs, to please others and to be liked causing you to hesitate in ways that are holding back your career and creating mountains of unnecessary anxiety and stress? Recently I’ve been coaching an amazing group of female business leaders each incredibly accomplished in their own right. So when we dug into what most often had them spiralling down towards functioning instead of flourishing, I was shocked to discover the biggest challenge they faced…

    Have you ever found that your strengths – those things you like doing and are good at – have gotten you into trouble at work? Perhaps, you were really excited about a new opportunity, but nobody else seemed to feel quite the same way. Or maybe, despite putting in your best work on a project, your efforts just kept misfiring. Or, did you work so hard on something you burnt yourself out entirely? If you’re not nodding your head by now, you should be. You see our strengths have what researchers call a “shadow side” that appears when we overplay them in different situations. So how can…

    Do you ever feel like there’s a blanket of greyness snuffing all the color out of your life?  Instead of feeling full of energy, enthusiasm and enjoyment most days you drag yourself around feeling deflated, disillusioned and disappointed.  And you can’t help but wonder if: “Surely there’s more to life than this.” For many years this was my daily mantra as I found myself hitting the snooze button on my alarm each morning again and again and again. Despite all the advantages we have of better education, better health, better standards of living and better…

We talked, reminisced, hugged, ate, drank, danced, shopped and even sang (!), making unforgettable memories for the future. I was incredibly grateful that my friends and I managed to regroup after so many years apart and we were able to pick up our conversations right where we left off. Despite all of us living in…

    Everyday you approach the day with a ton of things on your to-do list. From buying milk from the shop to picking up the dry cleaning to finishing a report at work to writing a pitch for your manager or client to start a new project. The lists can get endless and we often kid ourselves that if we just do one or two more things today the list will be shorter tomorrow. The reality is even working around the clock wouldn’t enable us to make the list disappear because there will always be new things popping up on that list! So how can we manage the endless to-do list without constantly…

Perhaps they complained about the mundane aspects of some of the admin work that was involved, of the challenges of working with suppliers who failed to deliver on time, and of the co-workers who really didn’t seem to understand them on any level. This is a common scenario and one that people seem to enjoy diving into in order to avoid taking responsibility for their own happiness at work. It’s time you helped your friend to shift perspective.

One can try “tough love” which involves discontinuing any enabling behavior, and letting the person know that they must help themselves and take steps towards abstinence and recovery if they want continued support. But the truth is that there is little one can do to convince an alcoholic or addict that they have a problem if the person is in denial. Usually they must totally trash their life and “hit a bottom” before acknowledging they have a problem. The post What Can You Do…

    If you’ve ever taken an intro psychology class, one thing that you’re bound to encounter is ‘the cup’. Now, this cup is unique in the fact that scholars and non scholars alike seem to wage a fierce debate over the contents of said cup. One side says that this proverbial cup is half empty, and the opposition adamantly argues that the cup is, in fact, half full. The exercise of viewing the glass within these parameters is said to tell you something about your personality. If you see the cup as half empty, you’re generally considered a pessimist. Viewing the glass as half full,…

The first time Cal laid eyes on Paul, he was flailing around in his poncho, trying to rid himself of a bee. His energy was so attractive to Carolyn (affectionately known as Cal), that she said to herself, “If he doesn’t ask me out for coffee soon, I’m going to ask him.” He invited her first. A match made in Heaven on Earth. Talking for hours on end, these two agreed that the most important things to them were God…

She just heads through the swinging doors to the kitchen and re-appears quickly in her half apron. Ready for business.

Starting at one end, Love walks along the bar and greets each patron with a warm hello and inquires, “What’s new?

I was speaking to someone randomly in the streets of NYC and they mentioned to me that they are going to make these changes in their life once the New Year hits. I asked them why are they waiting to change? Change has no time limit. Once you make that decision to change, you can start making changes right away.

The exercise of viewing the glass within these parameters is said to tell you something about your personality. If you see the cup as half empty, you’re generally considered a pessimist. Viewing the glass as half full,…
