Loneliness a Major Health Risk

Social Health

Audio version available:


When it comes to living a long and healthy life, we often turn to diet and exercise to increase our longevity. Neglecting the quality of our social relations, we look for magic-pill solutions to postpone our physical decline.

Although physical health has received a great deal of attention recently, spawning a massive industry around diet and exercise, it turns out we might be better off focusing on our social health. Recent research looked at the impact of loneliness as a risk factor for mortality and found:

Anxiety in Relationships

Discovering Your Happiness

Anxiety tells you that something is inherently wrong with you daily.

How can you expect anyone else to understand you if I don’t even understand yourself? Society throws around the term “anxiety” as if it’s something we all share and must all learn how to overcome. What most people are generally dealing with is stress, not anxiety. Stress creeps into your life as a result of looming deadlines, problems that need addressed, and the constant state of busyness we all live in today.

Family Options For Single Women

When Women Inspire

Not everyone is lucky in love, and some women end up reaching their late thirties still single. There’s nothing wrong with this, of course, and the majority of older single women are very happy with their lives and relationship status. However, the question about children can often weight on their minds.

Female fertility starts to drop off over the age of forty. Past this age, it can be very difficult to conceive naturally.

An Obvious Oblivion Blog

Adriana had lighted one more cigarette in the glass holder, softly held between the fingers of her left hand and had it inhaled swiftly. There was no rush to exhale the smoke soon. She looked more red in anxiety. She was restless.

She grabbed the glass of wine in her right hand and walked towards the balcony. She hated to wait anymore minute and looked impatiently towards the big wall clock.
