Most people occasionally eat too much. They may fill up an extra plate with seconds at a special event, enjoy another piece of pie at a holiday gathering or eat popcorn until stuffed at the movies.

5 Weight-Loss Strategies That Don ’t Work—And What To Do Instead
Every year, losing weight ranks among the top New Year’s resolutions. And every year, we keep trying many of the same methods—and not surprisingly, keep getting the same disappointing results.

Then she would feel guilty about all the rabbits she had purchased. The reason this 70-year-old woman was suddenly buying so many rabbits? She had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, which scientists believe is caused by a lack of dopamine in some parts of the brain, and she had then been put on drugs to...

Why Disconnecting From Your Phone Is So Good for You —and How to Do It
Graham Dugoni was sick of seeing smartphones everywhere when he lived in San Francisco in 2014.

Patrons keep that pouch with them, but can only access their phone if they pop into specia...
