Parenting Pointers 1133 - Women with thinning hair

11/26/2020
Women with thinning hair Disney princesses. Hollywood celebrities. Yep, they’ve set us up to believe that all women should have full, lush hair. The way it works is that when we reach 30, about a third of us will have noticeably thinning hair. It’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs every day, but if you start losing upwards of 150 hairs, you’ll notice. The condition also includes hair miniaturization which means that your hairs will have a smaller diameter. At that point, you’re well...

Parenting Pointers 1132 - They apologized, but I’m still really mad

11/25/2020
They apologized, but I’m still really mad Your feelings are really hurt. They apologized, but you’re still angry. Was the apology all it should’ve been? There are 5 critical elements of a “healing apology” that ease the hurt and repair the relationship. One, the offender must acknowledge the reasons for your pain and own their actions. Two, they must accept blame instead of putting it on you with that, “Gee, I’m sorry your feelings are hurt” stuff. Three, they don’t take an accusatory...

Parenting Pointers 1131 - The most unusual jobs in America

11/24/2020
The most unusual jobs in America There’s a job for everyone, I guess. Some “unusual jobs” are more unusual than others. Would you like to be a professional snuggler? They make upwards of $80 for a 90-minute snuggle. How about a golf ball diver or a pet food taster? Would you prefer to test beds or sniff paper towels to see if they have just the right scent for your kitchen? Hate to wait in line? You can pay someone to do that for you. If you’re a kid at heart, you can test water slides....

Parenting Pointers 1130 - Sitting up straight and crossing your arms works wonders

11/23/2020
Sitting up straight and crossing your arms works wonders Science proved it. When you’re faced with a challenging task, people who sat up straight and crossed their arms stayed with it for nearly twice as long as those who didn’t assume such a determined stance. When you change body postures, breathing patterns, muscle tension, facial expressions, gestures, movements, words and even vocal tones, there’s a surge of chemicals that change our internal state. The same thing happens when you...

Parenting Pointers 1129 - Will bank buildings become obsolete?

11/20/2020
Will bank buildings become obsolete? Most Americans think bank buildings will become a thing of the past in the near future. Why? The digital age has revolutionized the banking industry. About 27% of Millennials, ages 23 to 38, have never been in a bank and make all of their transactions electronically. Not only can business be conducted fast and easy, but all of the records are online. No more paper chase. It’s not just the Millennials that think banks are quickly becoming a thing of the...

11/19/2020
What is the happiest time in a marriage? Every marriage has its own season. It can’t be all rainbows and champagne every day, but, many marriages enjoy specific periods of time that seem to bring the greatest satisfaction. The happiest time in a marriage is said to be 11 months and 8 days after the wedding. All of life is fresh, new and exciting. About 2 years and 4 months in, couples enjoy the height of intimacy. At about 2½ years, wives are satisfied with the attention they’ve received in...

11/18/2020
That diet lasts only a year Don’t you feel like the science people keep upping the ante when it comes to keeping our weight under control? Yep, the latest bad news is that most diets stop working after a year. You thought you had it made when you got to the one-year mark, but that’s not the case. Sure, you enjoyed lower blood pressure with that weight loss and your doctor has stopped nagging you. Yes, you benefited emotionally from those workouts. You’re not as anxious as you once were, and...

Parenting Pointers 1126 - Cleaning your house makes you happier

11/17/2020
Oh no, say it ain’t so, Dr. Claudia! Waddya mean that doing housework can make me happier? People who clean their own homes are 25% happier than those who don’t. And, what’s worse is that for every extra hour of cleaning a week, the happier you are by a whopping 53%. What’s going on here? If you have a tidy home, you’re likely to be more relaxed, have increased focus, greater productivity and you’ll sleep better. If your environment is a mess, you feel out of control. You can’t find anything...

Parenting Pointers 1125 - Social anxiety might be genetic

11/16/2020
Social anxiety might be genetic Ten percent of people will experience social anxiety in their lifetimes. Social anxiety is that distressing feeling you get when you worry about being judged by others. You avoid any social situation where people will think poorly of you. And, in your mind, they can only be critical of you. If you prefer to interact online rather than in person, you just might have social anxiety. Physically, it causes you to have a rapid heartbeat and feel out of breath. You...

Delivered, take-out food can make you fat Too busy to cook? What to eat tonight? Grab the stack of take-out menus and get something delivered. It’s another night in front of the tv watching the latest popular series eating out of cartons. Too busy to worry about what it’s doing to you. You’re young and healthy. You’ll worry about it later. At some point, you’ll catch a peek at yourself in a window and say, “OK, NOW I’ve gotta do something! Here’s the plan. Get low-fat, high protein meals...

11/12/2020
Feeling full and getting depressed People who regularly eat fast food over a period of 6 years are 41% more likely to become depressed than those who avoided the fat crud. Scientists looking at this connection decided that it’s the high level of artificial trans fats that’s interfering with the brain’s ability to produce certain mood stabilizing neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are chemicals responsible for sending messages throughout the body. Kind of important, right? Despite the 2018...

Parenting Pointers 1122 - Left brain, right brain. It’s a no-brainer.

11/11/2020
Left brain, right brain. It’s a no-brainer. Not too long ago, we still thought that people who are left-brained are more logical, analytical and math oriented while right-brained folks are more emotional, intuitive, artistic and free spirited. We don’t believe this anymore because science has learned the truth. Even common sense tells us that both sides of the brain should be working together. Most behaviors and abilities require that both sides of the brain cross the aisle to process...

11/10/2020
So, what is this new umami taste anyway? You keep hearing about it. Suddenly, out of the blue, there’s a new flavor. It’s umami, a Japanese word that means a “pleasant, savory taste”. Foods with an umami flavor have a brothy or meaty essence that’s long-lasting, mouth-watering and leaves a coating sensation over the tongue. The source of the taste is a high level of glutamate, an amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and have critical roles in your health. The umami...

11/9/2020
Can your friends make you fat? Do your friends influence your weight? Yes, they do, and it makes sense, doesn’t it? Our friends influence our fashion, our way of speaking and gesturing, the movies we see, the books we read and our love interests. A study from Harvard Medical School cautions us about the powerful influence of our friend’s weight on our eating habits. If they’re thin, you’re likely to mind your calories. If they’re overweight, your scale is likely to move in that direction....

Parenting Pointers 1119 - Why does a total stranger understand me?

11/6/2020
Why does a total stranger understand me? It’s so much easier to tell a stranger your troubles than to tell your friends or family. Strangers have no investment in you, so they can offer their opinions freely. Your relationship might be as long as a plane ride or the 10 minutes waiting in line at the post office, so no big deal, you’re not likely to see them again. And, there’s not as much risk of being judged by a stranger than by people who are in your inner circle. Yes, these factors help...

Does technology cause infidelity? Does technology cause infidelity? No, it doesn’t. Technology makes it easier. For those with wandering eyes who are already predisposed to cheat, the digital age gives them the means to do it faster and more conveniently. For some who stray, the ease of moving from thinking to doing just may mean the difference between staying and going. People in healthy, satisfying relationships aren’t going to use technology to see what else is on the menu....

A new approach to getting a good night’s sleep Some people will try just about anything to get a good night’s sleep. The latest new idea is to wear sunglasses two hours before going to bed to tell your biological clock that this is now the end of the day. Edison knew that his light bulb would cause sleep-deprivation and it has. We have artificial light sources available to us 24 hours a day and now, we have the lure of all of those digital devices pinging away. In addition, people who don’t...

This is what happens when you overeat Eat a small bit of food every 3 hours to keep from getting fuzzy-headed and hangry. But, there are times when you overeat. What happens when you do? You get that ugly food baby belly. It’ll take a while for it to go down, so don’t even think about that bikini! When you swallow food, you also swallow air. You not only get full, but bloated. Eat slowly. When you take in more food than your metabolism can handle, your body tries to burn off those extra...

11/2/2020
What time should I do my best work? If you feel that your mind is at its sharpest in the morning, it’s due to the body’s natural clock where the “fear factor” chemical of cortisol starts up at 6, slows down by noon and ends at about 3 p.m. You wondered why you needed a cup of coffee or a nap at about 3? Mystery solved! The cortisol activation response is a leftover from the ancient brain that gets turned on when light hits your eyes. Your body feels its best and your brain operates at top...

Factors that help you to stay married Science tells us about common-sense factors that can help you stay married. If each of you belongs to one or two social media sites instead of being active on many, you’ll stay married longer. Being too active on social media undermines the bond you share as a couple. If you smiled in photos of you as a kid, in high school and in college, you’re likely to be more emotionally stable and positive, a good sign for marriage. If neither of you has lived with...
