Artist Realizes Only Appropriate Use Of Trump Tweets Is Plant Food
President Donald Trump’s tweets might be polluting the natural environment that is your mind, but they’re finding greater purpose somewhere: specifically, in a subterranean lavender field in New York City. Austrian artist Martin Roth, now based in NYC, is the mad gardener behind an idyllic new art exhibition, which happens to be powered in part by Trump’s 140-character declarations. Nestled inside the Austrian Cultural Forum of Midtown Manhattan, it consists of 200 lavender shrubs that are nurtured by grow lights whose power corresponds with the activities of several social media accounts. That’s ri...

A Flight Attendant’s Jet Lag Survival Guide
The summer I turned 19, having dropped out of college amid some personal upheaval, I decided to apply to be a flight attendant. I wanted to get out into the world, meet interesting people, and gaze at the ocean from the other side.  I quickly realized being a flight attendant is a very difficult and physically taxing job. I started working at JMC Airlines, a now-shuttered short-haul carrier. In a regular shift, I would travel through 2 to 3 time zones and experience two takeoffs and two landings, traveling from my home in the U.K. to European destinations as varied as Tenerife in the Canary Islands and Salzb...

A Therapist's Tips For Making Your Own Self-Care Box
I jokingly like to describe myself as a “self-care evangelist.” Self-care isn’t selfish, rather it is a necessary. Additionally, it is difficult to effectively help others, if you are not taking good care of yourself. There is a reason why flight attendants ask that you “put on your own oxygen mask first, before assisting others.” As a therapist in private practice in Rockville, Maryland, I often speak with my clients about the benefits of regular self-care practices. One idea that I love to introduce is the idea of a “self-care box,” ideally which appeals to the different senses. ...

Walking And Working: A Healthy Formula For Turning Back The Clock
I've never been very good at guessing people's age. I'll see someone who looks considerably older than me, only to learn that he's years younger. What makes age determination so difficult, especially in older adults, is that many factors influence the appearance of age. Someone who has had a life full of hardship, or suffered through a prolonged illness, is likely to have traces of it written on their face- a pentimento of their suffering. Sun worshipping, too, can leave its mark in the age-accelerating appearance of leathery skin and a corrugation of wrinkles. So I was especially interested when my friend John told me th...

The causes of cancer are complex. Research now highlights the role environmental toxins play in this growing epidemic and points to changes you can make to reduce your risk.
