by Wellness Editor Each year, countless people set their New Year’s resolutions. In 2020, the most common resolution was to exercise more. Eating healthy and losing weight came in third and fourth, respectively. That’s a lot of people starting something new, and many of them may not have any experience with exercise at all. So, what should you do if you want to get more active, even though you’re a newbie to the gym?... 12/3/2023 5:00:00 AM
by Rob Greenstein Unless you were born prior to the mid-twentieth century, you've heard this warning all of your life: “Saturated fats are bad for you. They increase cholesterol and cause heart attacks." I sure did. My mother would only make us eggs for breakfast once a week because she didn't want the family to get clogged arteries.The house was filled with low-fat this and reduced fat that, diet this and sugar-free... 12/2/2023 5:00:00 AM
by Alishah Merchant The vast majority of us spend hours at a desk in front of a computer every day. Even after the workday is complete, many of us go on to sit more while in a car, bus, or the subway and then again at the dinner table, and in front of the television. Even if we take time out of our busy day to engage in physical activity such as walking, biking, running or weight training, the proportion of this time... 12/1/2023 5:00:00 AM
by Wellness Editor As the cool, brisk winds start rolling in, so do, invariably, the sniffles and scratchy throats.

by Evan Marc Katz Finding a deep and lasting connection with an equal partner can be a challenge. As a dating coach, I've seen too many women prioritize financial security over emotional compatibility. I understand why. Historically, men have been the providers and it feels safe to have a partner who makes more than you.The problem arises when, as a woman, you’re already in the 90th percentile in income and only 10%... 11/29/2023 5:00:00 AM
by AJ Gibson Taking time to focus on your own wants and needs can feel selfish, but doing so is actually an act of genuine selflessness. Don’t buy into the fallacy that the only way to find true happiness in life is by pouring into others, because it’s just not that simple. Sure, in theory, it’s a great concept, but too often we do things like volunteering or giving sacrificially in hopes of actually feeding a... 11/28/2023 5:00:00 AM

by Wellness Editor Tooth decay seems to be practically inevitable. About 91% of U.S. adults, between the age of 20 and 64, have or have had tooth decay. Once adults reach the age of 65, that number jumps to 96%. Tooth decay is a common problem, affecting more than 9 out of 10 Americans at some point during their lifetime. But that doesn’t mean you can’t stave it off. In fact, most people can reverse and/or prevent tooth... 11/25/2023 5:00:00 AM
by Jeff Forte Why is love so hard for most people?From my perspective working with struggling couples, it's usually a lack of knowing what to do that allows intimacy and connection to drift silently away. What we don't know is in fact hurting our most treasured relationships.Whether we like it or not, we do model our relationship strategies from our parents and family members. You will ultimately have about the... 11/23/2023 5:00:00 AM
