Source: Copyright Leslie Fry Ever since they were falsely blamed for the Black Death and were branded as witches’ familiars, cats have always been in need of a good publicist. In the United States, dogs rule, outnumbering their feline brethren, with 36.5% of households (over 43 million) saying aye to canine companionship, with 30.4% or 36 million saying hello kitty. But, as cat people know, felines rock in their own specific way and it turns out that being owned by a cat (yes, that accurately sums up the relationship) reveals some important things about those who are definitely and positively cat folk. While the oft-repeated statement “Time with cats is never wasted” was apparently not said or written by Sigmund Freud (in fact, according to the Freud Museum in London, he added insult to injury by writing his friend Arnold Zweig,” I, as is well known, do not like cats”), psychology has not ignored our feline friends or the qualities of those who consort … [Read more...] about Why You May Want to Be a Cat Person (Or Have One Around)

One of the biggest yet perhaps underrated factors in emotional health and well-being is our workplace environment. Given America’s cultural emphasis on prioritizing work, not to mention financial necessity, the workplace has become essentially a second home, even the main home for many people. When relationships in the workplace become a source of stress for people, that stress can take a larger toll than we initially realize. Accordingly, a workplace structure that emphasizes positive mental health practices and emotional support is crucial. Sadly, though, American workplace culture is lagging in terms of awareness or prioritization of these wellness issues. The bottom line predominates instead of a work-life balance. And oftentimes leadership is one of the most important factors in setting the tone for a workplace’s emotional culture. Unfortunately, leadership can also be one of the major causes of stress in the workplace, when a leader displays certain behaviors and … [Read more...] about 8 Traits of Toxic Leadership to Avoid

In its effort to protect you, to keep you alive and safe, your brain can keep you from speaking up or getting what you truly want if you don’t know how to listen beyond your rationalizations. When you face an uncomfortable decision, your brain will spontaneously give you a fabulously credible rationalization for avoiding possible failure, embarrassment, or even minor discomfort.
