Five Guides to a Happy Place
Unpacking, in its basic form, is like chatting with a friend to share something dreadful that’s happened to you. There are times our friends can offer the best solutions and there are times… not so much. Either way, we must do something with the stuff that comes from unloading our emotions and connecting them to the relating situations. Recently, I recalled not knowing how to manage my stuff after unpacking. My initial experience with talk therapy filled me with alternating reactions of anger and disgust. When I continued speaking of the circumstances that got me there, I hid in any space that was left. After a few sessions, I coiled into a ball of anxiety. I went down a rabbit hole of depression. Then I planted myself on top of a mound of self-sabotage. Soon after, I stopped going to therapy.Oredolapo A RobertsPublished about a month ago in Longevity

Forty is the New Twenty
For my entire adult life I struggled with my weight, even more so after giving birth to my four beautiful children. I lost myself in motherhood, making everyone a priority but myself. I have always been the one to make sure everyone else was always taken care of. I hid from countless photo ops and avoided having my picture taken at all costs. Looking back, I should’ve never done that and wish I could take it back. If you’ve ever struggled with self-confidence and body image, I’m sure you’d understand.Elaine Clarke

Reignite the Spark in Your Relationship… with Food
Like the city of New York, my life here is FAST PACED. Between work as a professional fundraiser, spin classes, and wedding planning (swoon), my days are packed and when it comes to weight loss, I needed something that could fit with my lifestyle, rather than trying to fit my life into a rigid program. That’s why I chose WeightWatchers. They said, “We use a system no one else does, so you’ll lose weight—not your favorite foods,” and my life on the program is proof that it works.Alexis Eggleton

Hangry No More: How WeightWatchers Changed My Relationship with Food
I think most of you can agree with me that life is a series of cycles. The first time I tried WeightWatchers was when I was a new mom. I had gained a significant amount of weight and was tired and overwhelmed. I unfortunately started my pregnancy overweight and having an excuse of “needing to eat for two” became a reason to indulge in all of the foods I knew I did not need to eat but felt I had been given permission to binge on. After I had my first child, I realized I was even further from the happy, healthy me I wanted to be. WeightWatchers gave me the tools to manage being a new mom but also become a healthier, more present one. The best part is that it took no special tools or foods! It enabled me to still eat the foods I loved while getting back to goal.

What Is Toxic Positivity and Why Is It Dangerous to One’s Mental Health?
Let me be frank: in today’s world of global calamities and significant uncertainties, keeping a positive outlook on life is a massive challenge. Even simply logging in to your social media accounts can lead to exposing oneself to concerning or anxiety-inducing news. Our engagement with the negative information space has become so habitual that psychologists have started coming up with new terms (e.g., ‘doomscrolling’) to describe such behaviours.Ellie RichardsPublished 5 months ago in Longevity
