Fighting Depression

By Guest Blogger Liz Wiener When I was a kid, I couldn’t go to sleep unless I completed a very specific set of nightly routines. I was inexplicably terrified of water dripping from the bathroom tap, so I worked at tightening the faucet until I was sure I was safe. The bathroom light switch had to be flicked on and…

Wisdom Wednesday: She Let Go

I saw this poem on Facebook, and wanted to share it with you. I thought it was so simple, yet so profound. Read it until the end.   She let go. She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go. She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the confluence…

The Confidence Bible

By Guest Blogger Jane Durst Pulkys Stop for a second and ask yourself, how are you feeling? If you were to finish the following statement, what would you say? “I am ____.” What word did you use?

The 5 Stages of Grief

Happy Monday, girls! We're back in the groove today. The kids finally went back to school after last week's Jewish holidays, and I went back to the gym (five pounds heavier due to endless chopped liver, brisket and gefilte fish).

Robin Williams and The Stigma of Depression

In light of yesterday's tragedy, I wanted to republish an older post on crushing the stigma of depression. I read online, "Maybe Robin Williams' legacy won't only be the humor he gave us.
