Adapting New Habits during a New Normal…

Is your anxiety level higher than usual, due to the pandemic and the natural course of actions, that has been taking place over the past several months?  With very few businesses returning to a full time office setting any time soon, most individuals will continue to work from home.

This new season will require new adjustments and change.  It may be time to shed some ineffective habits and adapt some new ones, that may be more relevant...

A New Wave of Depression…

This year has been like no other.  2020 came in with the roar of a lion and its sound still lingers in the air.  Many had huge plans for this year,  2020 is/was significant as the metaphor of the year is linked to perfect vision, seeing things clearly, getting/gaining clarity, and so on. It was going to be an extraordinary year for most.  Well, it is an extraordinary year, but not in the way we thought it would be.  For many in this country and around the world, 2020 will definitely be the most memorable year of their life, but unfortunately...

Social Distancing and Singles…

The Covid-19 pandemic has literally shut down the entire planet.  As billions of people all over the world are literally quarantined at home, new terms like “ social  distancing” has evolved, as part of our new normal.  But is this really a new term?  For many singles it’s not, although it hasn’t been called social distancing before, the meaning and implications are not new to this group.  Singles have always wanted and needed more affection, and as often as possible.  Now with social distancing, what ever affection this group was getting...

Is change really possible? ……

It’s a New Year,  it’s a fresh start, it’s a new beginning.  Who you were last year,  should be bigger, better and an improved version this year.  This is not to say that everyone needs improvement, if you are fine with who you are, then change is not necessary for you.  This is for everyone else who wants change, because there are some things in their life that they would like to improve.  Every year brings new hopes and dreams along with it.  Some of us would like a fresh start at failed endeavors or at least a do over of certain things. ...

It’s not About You..

When in a relationship, this phase refers to you.  How often do I hear couples complaining about their partners about mere things that should be non issues.  When you are in a relationship, whether married or dating, it’s really not about you.  Compromise is the key word here. This is not to say that one should change their entire persona to fit into a relationship, not at all, but one will have to change certain things in order for it to work.   This is the advice that I would give to any couple.   Marriage isn’t about you, it’s about you...

Positives of Single-hood…

Being “ Single” is often seen as something negative, in my last blog I described some of the negative factors affecting Singles. To be fair I felt that I had to also describe some of the positive aspects of this population.  The rate of Singles continues to grow in the US, there is something to be said about. Although, many individuals are not purposely choosing to be “Single”, a large percentage of the population is.  Being single shouldn’t be the end of anyone’s world, but many individuals see it as “ the worst thing ever”.  The idea of the...

Some Factors Affecting Singles…

According to recent statistics, 45.2% of the US population was classified as “single” and that number continues to grow yearly. As more and more individuals find themselves “Single”, hopefully the misconceptions and stigmas that are associated with this population will also change. Single individuals deal with many factors that are very unique, that married people and couples are not aware off and may even take for granted. Many individuals are single by circumstances, such as separation or divorce, while some are widowed, but there is also a...

SAD… Living on the East Coast makes it a bit easy to write about this disorder, as winter is a definite unavoidable season.  With short, cold days, with little day light time, it’s no wonder this season affects so many individuals.  Seasonal  affective disorder (SAD), also known as “ winter depression”, or “winter blues”, affects approximately 10 million Americans.  Sad is characterized by depressive symptoms which appears in the fall or winter months  and lifts in the spring time.  Prevalence of SAD ...
