One of the patron saints of my Happier at Home project, Samuel Johnson, wrote, “It is by studying little things that we attain the great art of having as little misery and as much happiness as possible.” One “little thing” that can be a source of unhappiness is boredom. Waiting in traffic. Waiting for the subway. Doing the dishes. Waiting in a doctor’s office. Listening to your 13-year-old talk through her different clothing options for the day. Here are seven tips to reframe the moment. Even if you can’t escape a situation, by reframing your emotions about it, you can transform it. 1. Put the word “ meditation ” after the activity that’s boring you . If you’re impatient while waiting for the bus, tell yourself you’re doing “bus waiting meditation.” If you’re standing in a slow line at the drugstore, you’re doing “waiting in line meditation.” Just saying these words makes me feel spiritual , high-minded, and wise. 2. Dig in . As they say, if you can’t get … [Read more...] about 7 Tips to Fight the Deadly Feeling of Boredom

Home Fashion Trends Fashion Trends Devika By Devika Tripathi | on July 26, 2018 The first day of the India Couture Week 2018 proved to us that regal looks matter in the Indian bridal market. Yes, the two prominent designers Tarun Tahiliani and Anju Modi both flirted with the blue-blooded inspiration. Their inspirations were different but the ideas they projected had to do a lot with royal-fueled fashion. While Tahiliani's collection celebrated Indian regal heritage, Modi's, on the other hand, drew inspiration from the Victorian era. Barring a few outfits, Tahiliani's collection, 'In Elysium' was more structural and crisp. His sartorial cuts on the ensembles were definitely sharper. Modi's collection, 'A Maiden's Prayer' played with asymmetry. Her ensembles were wispy and a lot dreamier. However, still both the designers aimed at making their collections relevant to modern India. Through … [Read more...] about India Couture Week 2018: Day One Began On A Regal Note
This post was written by Jessica Maples-Keller, Ph.D. Every single person deserves access to evidence-based, high-quality mental health care. But right now, America’s mental health system is stacked against Black communities. These are the people especially likely to experience mental health problems due to systemic oppression, yet they are less likely than others to have access to the high-quality care they may need. As a young research assistant who worked on a psychological study of Hurricane Katrina evacuees, I was inspired by the potential of research to improve help for people with mental health difficulties. But I was also struck by the challenges of access to high-quality mental health care in marginalized and underprivileged communities.

The Gender Gap in Censorship Support Source: Pixabay Across decades, topics, and studies, women are more censorious than men. Compared to men, women support more censorship of various kinds of sexual and violent content and content perceived as hateful or otherwise offensive to minorities. Women are more supportive of illegalizing insults of immigrants, homosexual individuals, transgender individuals, the police, African Americans, Hispanics, Muslims, Jewish people, and Christians, and are more supportive of banning sexually explicit public statements and flag burning. In contrast, men evaluate free speech as more important than do women . One likely reason for this pattern is that women are more averse to interpersonal harm and have a relatively stronger concern for protecting others . Indeed, women believe sexual media content has more harmful effects on the self and others , and women view hate speech as more harmful and violent … [Read more...] about The Gender Gap in Censorship Support
