Loneliness can ’t be ‘cured’. We must learn to find value in solitude | Frank Furedi
Instead of medicalising loneliness and calling it an epidemic, we need to find better ways of engaging with ourselvesLoneliness – the sense of isolation, accompanied by the feeling of alienation – has always been a feature of the human condition. References to the unhappy state of loneliness are scattered throughout the Bible. As the 17th century poet John Milton reminded us:“Loneliness is the first thing which God’s eye named not good.” However, it was only in the early modern era that people started talking aboutloneliness as a standalone problem. Until the 19th century, loneliness tended to...

How to Wipe Out Malaria for Good
Malaria has plagued humanity for thousands of years. Caused by a tiny parasite transported from person to person by a certain kind of mosquito, the disease poses a risk to nearly half the world’s population. The WHO attempted to eradicate malaria in the 1960s and while it succeeded in ridding many countries of the disease, it fell short of the goal due to growing drug resistance and by failing to focus enough attention on Africa. Every year on World Malaria Day, April 25, the malaria community celebrates progress made to date and focuses on the challenges ahead. This year is especially exciting as just this past Fri...

As codependents we lose ourselves in relationships, unaware that losing our Self is the greatest despair. When the relationship inevitably ends, it’s devastating because we are lost.

Many of them boil down to the question of who has control, whose needs will be met, or how intimate they will be. Intimacy problems are a common symptom of codependency.

Strength-Training Can Help Older Women With Aging
BOSTON (CBS) — Would you like to ward off the effects of aging? Strength-training may do the trick.

Resistance training, in particular, can preserve muscle strength and endurance, if started at a younger age. Many women said they stay active by doing light housekeeping or light gardening, and while that is better than nothing, it may not be enough to counteract t...
