The Importance of Living in the Spectacular Now

The Importance of Living in the Spectacular Now I want to start this post by asking you to reflect on a couple questions: how many times this past year did you say to yourself “when Covid-19 is over, I will finally be able to do this”. For me, I must have said this sentence hundreds if not thousands of times but let’s take a step back. How many times have you said, prior to the pandemic, “when this event is over, I will finally be able to do this”.  Whether this event is homework, focusing on your physical health, meeting with friends, traveling, or whatever it may be, we need to stop allowing ourselves to miss out on the spectacular moments life encompasses.

Respect Yourself and Others!

Respect Yourself and Others! This past year has not been an easy ride for anyone.

Why Are You Friends With Your Friends?

Why Are You Friends With Your Friends? From time and time again, I have witnessed so many of my loved ones be pulled down by those who they consider are their closest friends. We all have to admit to ourselves that this has happened to us at some point in our lives. It is so easy to be blinded by the fact that, as humans, we crave closeness with others. But when that relationship becomes unrewarding, we must learn when to walk away. Whether the friend we thought we could confide in is not as trustworthy as we thought, provides little to no emotional support, or there is a total lack of respect, we deserve better.  Science agrees! In a 2014 study conducted by UCLA (go bruins!), they suggested that a relationship that brings one stress and anxiety can actually cause your immun...
