3 Self-Indulgences You Need to Start Doing Now
We have been taught that to be self-indulgent is an undesirable trait, something that can lead to ruinous behavior. The Merriam-Webster defines self-indulgence as "excessive or unrestrained gratification of one's own appetites, desires, or whims." While indeed many self-indulgences can pack on the pounds or put a major dent in one's relationships or budget, there are also advantages to allowing behaviors that gently pamper and nurture you. Sometimes it's very proactive to devote the time to making sure your needs get met, especially when these self-nurturing behaviors are healthy and uplifting. I call this rais...

At the start of the study, participants who cut their sleep short on weekdays were 72 percent more likely to be obese than other participants. Six months into the study, the researchers found...

This revelation, if true, is a real blow to the supplement industry but more so to consumers who ...

I’ve never been a fan of heavy metal – neither the music nor the toxic type in the atmosphere that accumulates in your tissues and destroys your cells and causes disease. So when a patient at my wellness clinic recently asked me if a liver-cleanse or a full detox treatment was better for removing heavy metals, I told him neither. In fact, I suggested that his time – and money – would be better spent writing poetry, pondering the joys of biking, or setting aside 15 minutes every day for a real exercise program. They are all probably just as effective as those expensive, fad cleanses out there today. ...
