Staying positive: An optimist's guide to social distancing

April 14, 2020

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of change and anxiety! COVID-19 has undoubtedly shaken all of us and impacted our lives significantly for the foreseeable future. It isn’t surprising that some people are jumping into action and making the most of it, some are in a holding pattern unsure of what to do with themselves, and unfortunately, some are slowly spiraling down a negative path.

How to overcome the "forgetting curve" and improve your memory

April 9, 2020

Even now, 20 years later, I remember that Nickelodeon was on Channel 39. I convinced myself that detail was important, and I managed to retain it. However, other information I’ve learned has slipped away as if it was never there in the first place. Much of my memory, like yours, falls victim to the forgetting curve.

What's in your quarantine Amazon cart?

April 7, 2020

Amazon is always a good idea. It’s an especially good idea when we’re really not interested in leaving the house during social distancing. Yes, we’re allowed to go to Target, but do we really want to? For once in our lives, no, we don’t want to go to Target. (I know, it’s tough for me, too.)

Why you can't let comparison steal your joy

Why you can't let comparison steal your joy

March 12, 2020

It’s a natural instinct to compare yourself to other people, from when you were very young to now. Does that kid have better toys? Did Aaron get a higher score on that test? Why didn’t I get accepted to that college too? I just got a new job, but my friend still has a better one.

The next time you sit down with someone, why not ask them some (or all) of these questions?

Bring on the spring! Music to inspire a fresh start.

February 27, 2020

It’s not uncommon to do a deep clean of our homes this time of year. Many of us feel the urge to spring clean — opening windows, bringing in the fresh air, and getting rid of that pile of clothes accumulating in the corner of the closet. But just as we spring clean our homes, it never hurts to spring clean our minds.

You may not think you over apologize, but how often do you say sorry when something was clearly out of your control, like when you sneeze, or you walk through a door at the same time as someone else, or when someone spills their coffee on their new shirt?
