Caregiving done properly takes time, energy and attention. Many caregivers don’t realize how demanding it can be until they are caring for a child or parent. And what often happens is that caregivers “borrow time” from their partner, children, work, school or friendships. Caregivers might feel anxious, frustrated, overwhelmed, tired, stressed, sad and perhaps angry...

The attractiveness of each option depends on a myriad of factors, including income need, health and career/retirement status. Make no...
I felt validated recently to read that researchers at the University of Chicago have discovered that more than a third of U.S. marriages between 2005 and 2012 began online and that early research shows online couples tend to have longer, happier marriages.

“The hand you hold the longest is your own.” — Libba Bray We spend so much energy on finding that “special” relationship, believing that a person will complete us.

All of this wedding and relationship talk has made me think back to a time when I thought wedded bliss would never happen for me. I am talking about a time that I convinced myself I never wanted to get married. I lied to myself and others, saying marriage was not for me, when deep...
C.S. Lewis wrote, “Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art … It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.” Life without a friend would indeed be life but such a sad one that it would barely count as life at all. Of course, some friendships are...
We all know relationships are hard, even in the best of times.

Sexual intimacy is something that varies greatly between couples. “How much sex should I be having?” one might ask.

I was startled when a young woman I know — a promising scientist — said she is grateful for her learning disabilities because they enable her to peer through a unique prism and appreciate others who are different in other ways.

After 15 years as a full-time massage therapist, Jaime Ellerie was ready to call it quits five years ago. As much as she loved her practice, which she ran out of her home in Dubuque, the art of massage had taken a physical toll toll on her hands, shoulders and back. She knew making the...
Have you heard? Sitting is the new smoking. Well, maybe not exactly. However, sitting does cause adverse health conditions. For me, prolonged sitting causes weaker back muscles and painful headaches.

I’m sure this will come as no surprise, but when I open up my Pinterest app, I always am treated to a lot of beautiful food images.

Whether you’re someone who sets resolutions or not, there’s just something about a fresh start and getting the new year off on the right foot.

As the New Year draws near, a sigh of relief is anticipated, along with the hopeful promises of a fresh start.

Muscle tension. Pounding heart. Rapid breathing. Elevated blood pressure. Whether the threat is real or perceived, it has the same physiological response in the body. Stress is the body’s response — mentally, emotionally and/or physically — to change. Even positive change produces stress. The stress response can help to protect us in life-threatening situations. Or,...
For many of us, this holiday season is going to look a whole lot different than it has in years past. And for many others, it is going to be pretty much like any other holiday season. Whatever your plans, this article definitely is for you because it is about cheese log. And who can...
Eat, cook, read. If that’s your mantra, feast on these books — new and old, factual and fanciful— and all odes to food, glorious food.

Think about “home” and what that has meant to you throughout your lifetime. Home used to be where you lived with your family of origin, with your parents and your siblings.

I admit, I am a Hallmark Christmas movie junkie. I am addicted to the happy feeling that I have when a movie is over, even though I shed some tears. I know that the movies are predictable and unrealistic, but that is part of the enjoyment. The movies are so pure and innocent. My mom...

As we prepare for gift giving, I would like to share some thoughts with you about the most precious gift you can give when caregiving. Presence can mean many things to each of us.

I remember a time when gift-giving was fun. Was it just because I was a kid, or was it because once upon a time, we put more thought into gifts? We shopped in stores. We saw a special something and thought of someone who it would be perfect for and bought it on the spot,...
Shopping for the fitness fanatic on your holiday gift list can be difficult.

It’s that wonderful time of year, when we start thinking, planning and preparing for the holidays. It also is the gift-giving season.

“Never in the history of calming down has anyone calmed down by being told to calm down.” A truer statement probably has never been said, and yet, we often ignore these words when interacting with others — especially children — who are experiencing strong emotions. “Calm down.” “You’re overreacting.” “It’s not that big of a...

(Almost) all I ever needed to know, I learned from babysitters — that is, having one, being one and hiring many. My parents were homebodies, and my sister and I only had one babysitter when we were growing up: Mrs. Piermont from across the street. Oh, how to capture her in words. The smeared bifocals...

Women: Beautiful, smart, inspirational, hard-working. They are truly amazing. Believe it or not, I used to be incredibly intimidated by other women.

In my family, we regard eating and talking as among the noblest human endeavors. So, it’s little wonder we have developed our language about food. There is no place in it for the clichés of food writers — the “robust” stew or the “amusing” wine. Instead we speak of the “pick,” the “prance and a...
You undoubtedly have heard the old adage, “you are what you eat.” Perhaps a better way of thinking about it might be, “what you eat makes you feel how you do.” If you are allergic or sensitive to what you are eating, even if it is a perfectly healthy food, it might be causing a...
Pasta is a favorite for dinner because it doesn’t generally require a lot of special ingredients or equipment.
