To begin the eradication process, let’s unpack the “bad habit” concept. It’s not particularly complex: There’s the “bad” part, and the “habit” part. I’m going to go way out on a limb here and suggest that humans don’t do bad things . Not repeatedly. And not from their own perspective. There are loads of things people do that other people think are bad. But, from the inside looking out, which is the only viewpoint we ever have, we always act to keep the things that are right the way we want them to be, and to rectify anything that is not right. I know we can all think of someone, or maybe a couple of someones we know of, or have heard of, who seem to be self-destructive, but think about it evolutionarily. We wouldn’t have become the magnificently successful species we are if we had some inbuilt tendency to harm ourselves. Purely from a survival perspective, as a species, we can’t be bad to ourselves indefinitely. And yet, “indefinitely” is precisely the timeframe of a habit. … [Read more...] about Rid Yourself of Bad Habits
A bit about me
Source: Monkey Business Images/Shutterstock Parents often make excuses for their children’s outrageous behavior, whether it's a preschooler’s tantrum or a teen ’s sullen refusal to do what he or she has been asked. Children who become unmanageable or verbally abusive to their parents are, in fact, bullies , although most parents don’t think of these behaviors in that way. Maybe they should. Sean Grover , a New York psychotherapist, mustered the courage to call such children exactly what they are— bullies —and figured out how frustrated parents can take charge again and restore positive parent-child relationships. Here's what he had to say: Sean, you have worked with children and parents for more than 20 years. What prompted you to write, When Kids Call the Shots: How to Seize Control from Your Darling Bully—and Enjoy Being a Parent Again ? Grover: Years ago, when I started to feel I was being bullied by my own child, I read every parenting book I … [Read more...] about The 3 Types of Parents Who Get Bullied by Their Own Children

This post continues from my previous article , which discusses the clinical differences between COVID-19 and the seasonal flu. These two diseases progress so differently because the viruses that cause them, SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza , respectively, have very little in common. Here I discuss the fine molecular details of these two viruses and how they attack us. 1. The Virus Particles Viral particles come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and compositions. While this may sound like an esoteric detail, the composition of viral particles is what determines how a virus finds and enters its preferred host cell. Viruses are called obligate intracellular parasites , because they cannot do almost anything on their own. They must enter a host cell and hijack it. They then reprogram that host cell to become a factory for making more viruses, eventually spilling them out to attack more cells. Viral particles of SARS-CoV-2 (L) and H1N1 influenza A (R).
