“Body Positivity” has been a buzzword over the past few years, but many people still aren’t quite sure what it means. Boiled down, it’s a form of physical self-love. For baby boomers and Generation X, accepting your natural self can feel completely foreign.

Self Care During an Emotional Crisis

It happens to the best of us; you’re hit with something you never thought you’d have to deal with, even if you knew that you’d have to deal with it.

ED: The White Elephant in the Room

Greetings to all our readers! I hope your days have been full of positive experiences despite the pandemic. With this being my first year in our nation’s capital, I genuinely enjoy the drives to look at the historical buildings and monuments. While it is fun to spend time with the person you love, things start to happen as couples get older. Women can lose their sex drive when entering menopause, and men suffer from the

Why Sleeping in Separate Beds is Bringing Couples Closer Together

Many people think that was if a couple sleeps separately, it means they’re having problems. But that’s far from the truth. Sleep is extremely precious – it’s hard to be happy when you’re not well-rested. Without it, we turn irritable and unsatisfied. Our perception of reality becomes distorted, and our body literally starts shutting down. If we’re not taking care of our sleep lives, then our love lives will suffer accordingly. Sleep is Vital —
