Irrational or blown-out-of-proportion worries have a way of sneaking up on you. Even worse, they can send you into spirals of rumination and lead you to waste countless hours contemplating the what ifs. And yet most of the time, the things you worry about rarely come to fruition. In fact, in one recent study on anxiety, researchers found that over 90 percent of participants’ worries did not come true — that’s a lot of false alarms.

“Once you lose your confidence in your abilities outside your role as a mom, it’s hard to get the old magic back.”

The Underrated Power of Sleep for Pain Relief

Science has shown that quality sleep has an impact on almost every aspect of health and well-being, from performance to the prevention of disease. But there is also evidence of a direct link between sleep and pain. That doesn’t come as a surprise. If you are suffering from a sports injury, it is likely to hurt more if you’ve been awake half the night. And it’s a vicious cycle; if you are in pain, it’s harder to fall asleep. Professional athletes have been using sleep as a method of healing for several years, and it’s a page you can take out of their book for your own pain and recovery challenges. A recent study on the pain/sleep connection shows that getting your seven or eight hours of recommended shut-eye can reduce the intensity of your pain, whether it stems from a broken arm or backache.

6 Ways to Perfect Your Morning Ritual

Here are some of the more simple practices that helped me along the way, and still do.

On your busiest, most stressed-out days, you may not be thinking much about what ends up on your lunch or dinner plate. In fact, you may count yourself lucky if your meal didn’t come out of the vending machine at work. But abandoning your healthy eating goals stands in the way of your ability to fully thrive. After all, plenty of research shows that a diet rich in produce offers valuable nutrients not just for your body, but for your mental well-being.

By the “safe-enough classroom,” I do not mean that oft-imagined place where frightened teachers and undergrads “walk on eggshells” for fear of saying something that might be offensive to someone else. I have been teaching humanities classes for four decades, and I don’t see eggshells on the floor of my classrooms. Which is not to say things haven’t changed over that period. Many schools are much more concerned today about the student as consumer, and many teachers have been convinced that even if their customers aren’t always right, they never want to hear that they’re wrong. Professors must be encouraged to push back against this creep of the consumerist creed, and they must be supported by university administrators if their institutions are going to offer truly educational experiences, not just cushy ones that earn high marks in student satisfaction.
