What Does an Anxiety Disorder Feel Like? Here Are 4 Signs You May Have a Problem
If 2.6 billion people were suffering from an illness, you’d think we’d all be more familiar with it. That figure represents 33.7% of the population of the world, after all. It also represents the share of that population that will at some point experience an anxiety disorder, according to the National Institutes of Health. For those billions, the experience of clinical anxiety can range from a persistent fretfulness, distractedness and a sort of whole-body clenching, to the paralytic crisis of a full-blown panic attack. All of it feels lousy; all of it is a state you race to escape — which typically only ...

ADHD and Adults: How to Use Your Strengths to Succeed
ADHD coach Aaron D. Smith regularly works with clients who believe something is inherently wrong with them. After all, for years, they’ve been criticized, ridiculed and reprimanded—maybe by their parents or teachers or other authority figures, he said. For years, clinicians and doctors have hyper-focused on the problems of ADHD. They viewed ADHD from a deficit-based model, versus seeing positive traits or strengths. People with ADHD feel like ‘they are the problem’ not their behaviors.” They feel inadequate. They feel shame and self-doubt. This is especially true for people who were diagnosed ...

How Telling Stories Makes Us Human
Odds are, you’ve never heard the story of the wild pig and the seacow — but if you’d heard it, you’d be unlikely to forget it. The wild pig and seacow were best friends who enjoyed racing each other for sport. One day, however, the seacow hurt his legs and could run no more. So the wild pig carried him down to the sea, where they could race forever, side by side, one in the water, one on the land. You can learn a lot from a tale like that — about friendship, cooperation, empathy and an aversion to inequality. And if you were a child in the Agta community — a hunter-gatherer population in...
