Book Review: Dancing on the Tightrope
We all face challenges in life, and more often than not, we feel they are unique to our lives and unlike other peoples’ challenges. However, according to Beth Kurland, PhD, the challenges of being human are more common than we might believe. She writes, “There are five core evolutionary challenges that we all face as human beings that can take us away from living our lives most fully.” In her new book, Dancing on the Tightrope: Transcending the Habits of Your Mind & Awakening to Your Fullest Life, Kurland shows us that it is in understanding these challenges, and the habits they are characterized by, ...

Faulty Wiring Blamed for Deadly ‘Escape Room’ Fire in Poland
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Polish firefighters on Saturday blamed substandard electrical wiring and lax security procedures at an "Escape Room" for a fire that killed five teenage girls and injured a man. The bodies of the 15-year-old victims were found Friday in Koszalin, in northern Poland, after firefighters extinguished a blaze in an adjacent room. Asphyxiation is the probable cause of the deaths. A young man was hospitalized with burns. Initially described as a 25-year-old, the hospital said he was 26. Poland's firefighting chief, Leszek Suski, said Saturday that electrical wiring at the location was makesh...

Being Bored Can Be Good for You —If You Do It Right. Here’s How
If you’re waiting for brilliance to strike, try getting bored first. That’s the takeaway of a study published recently in the journal Academy of Management Discoveries, which found that boredom can spark individual productivity and creativity. In the study, people who had gone through a boredom-inducing task — methodically sorting a bowl of beans by color, one by one — later performed better on an idea-generating task than peers who first completed an interesting craft activity. (The task: to come up with excuses for being late that wouldn’t make someone look bad.) The bored folks outperformed...

Book Review: Struggle Well: Thriving in the Aftermath of Trauma
Like me, you’ve probably seen people crumble and fail to recover from trauma (big or small) and you’ve also probably seen others who come through their experiences with clearer eyes, stronger spirits, straighter backs, and deeper wells of empathy and compassion. Perhaps they are even able to use their experiences in profoundly creative ways. The Japanese concept of kintsugi treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object rather than something to disguise. People can be proud of their scars, and some even transform them into memoir or service, or embellish them literally with tattoos and other ap...

It seemed like a game–like those personality tests people often take online. The results, when I received them a few months later, changed everything I had ever understood about myself.
