How Your Mom Makes You Happier, According To Science

How Your Mom Makes You Happier, According To Science

The ways our moms and mother figures add to our lives is immeasurable — but perhaps arguably one of their best contributions is how much joy they bring to our world.

No matter if she’s called Mom, Mommy, Aunt, Grandma or anything else, it’s undeniable how much our mood is lifted when she’s around. And it’s not just us waxing poetic because it’s Mother’s Day: Science even suggests that maternal figures improve our wellbeing. Below are just a few ways mom makes us happier than we realize:

1. She calms us down.

Need a go-to trick to unwind? Put mom on speed dial. According to one 2010 study, just a few minutes of talking on the phone with our moms can reduce our stress. That’s because just hearing her voice can release oxytocin (the “feel good” hormone) in the body, which makes chatting with mom almost like getting a hug from her.

2. She had an impact on our brain development.

We may be able to thank our moms for our intellect. Research suggests that a mother’s loving, nurturing behavior may contribute to a larger hippocampus, the area of the brain crucial for learning, memory and stress responses, LiveScience reported.

3. She makes us laugh.

Whether it’s fishing out the old school photos or knowing just what to say to get the giggles going, moms certainly have a way of making us chuckle. And that’s great news for our stress levels: Studies show laughing can help reduce cortisol (aka the stress...

As a leader, your actions set the tone for what is appropriate behavior in the workplace. Exhibit actions that you want your team to emulate. You may establish rules of conduct or have expectations for how staff should behave at work and what actions will not be tolerated.

7 Ways To Train Your Brain To Be Happy

7 Ways To Train Your Brain To Be Happy

Neil Pasricha is on a crusade, and his goal is to help people get happy. He has firsthand experience with the working world’s disconsolate little secret—having spent years helping people lead teams, businesses, and organizations, he realized hardly anyone was happy (including himself). And to paraphrase Dean Wormer from Animal House: frazzled, stressed, and miserable is no way to go through life, son.

His resulting book, The Happiness Equation, consolidates piles of research on how to train your brain to be happy. And yes, we can be happy from the inside out. Happiness comes as a result of conscious training (think of it as emotional CrossFit, only without any painful, pulled muscles). Happiness isn’t a destination we arrive at after everything else in life is awesome—it’s what we do to make everything else in life awesome. And once we make that internal shift, we can put our day-to-day external frustrations into perspective. Neil’s strategies are practical, effective, and (shocker) FUN as he distills the attainment of a happy life into a simple equation:

30 Cruise Secrets Only Insiders Know

30 Cruise Secrets Only Insiders Know

About 24 million people are expected to take a cruise in 2016, according to Cruise Lines International Association. One of the big draws of this type of travel is that it’s considered to be a better value because meals, accommodations and entertainment on the ships is included in the price, according to CLIA.

However, that doesn’t mean cruising is inexpensive. Cruisers surveyed by CLIA reported that they spent an average of $2,200 per person on their last cruise — with a little more than $500 of that amount going toward airfare. Cruises can range dramatically in price, though.

Some cruises cost only a couple hundred dollars, whereas others can cost $20,000 or more. If you want to get the best deal on a cruise, it pays to know the dos and don’ts of cruising. Here are 30 important travel tips from cruise insiders to help ensure you save money when you set sail.

1. Book Far in Advance

One of the best ways to save money on a cruise is to book nine to 18 months before a sailing, said Colleen McDaniel, managing editor of

9 Hacks To Get Your Best Sleep This Allergy Season

9 Hacks To Get Your Best Sleep This Allergy Season

Seasonal allergies or asthma affect more than 60 million Americans, according to estimates, and more than 75 percent of those people report their allergies cause them to lose sleep, resulting in drowsy days.

Unfortunately, it’s easy to bring lots of allergens from the outside into our bedrooms. They unknowingly cling to our clothes, hair and pets, and can land on our garments in closets and drawers, carpeting, drapes and upholstery (did somebody say “dust ruffle”?).

Indeed, one of the worst offenders is dust. Did you know that up to 80 percent of the dust in your bedroom either was or still is alive, and is a major source of allergies? Dust consists of pollen, pet dander, skin, fungi, bacteria, dust mites, fabric fibers and other unwanted irritants. To eliminate allergic reactions in the bedroom, start by eliminating the dust.

In addition to wiping down all surfaces with a wet cloth to trap dust, invest in a HEPA-filtered vacuum cleaner and consider a HEPA air purifier. These filters remove up to 99.7 percent of all particles 0.3 microns or larger, and will remove most pollens, mold spores and bacteria. After all, a clean bedroom is an allergy-sufferer’s paradise. Below are nine hacks for nailing your best sleep this allergy season.

Scientific Proof That Having A Squad Makes Life Less Painful

Scientific Proof That Having A Squad Makes Life Less Painful

Having more friends really may make you feel better, or at least feel less pain, a new study from England suggests.

People in the study who had larger social networks appeared to have a higher tolerance for pain, according to the findings, which were published today (April 28) in the journal Scientific Reports.

In the study, the researchers wanted to see if people with larger social networks had higher levels of chemicals in the brain called endorphins. Endorphins are linked to feelings of pleasure, as well as reduced feelings of pain. (Endorphins are, in fact, a more powerful pain reliever than morphine, according to the study.)

In previous studies in both animals and humans, endorphin levels have also been linked to social bonding, Katerina Johnson, a doctoral student in experimental psychology at the University...

What I Have Discovered About Grief

What I Have Discovered About Grief

Grief. Only a select few are ever spared from the experience, so you’d think we would be more prepared. A quick search on Amazon reveals nearly 62,000 books on the subject, but I have yet to encounter someone who has read Grief For Dummies (yes, there is such a manual) or any other guidebook before they are fully immersed in the situation.

The only one-size-fits-all premise regarding grief is that everyone encounters, digests, and processes it uniquely. It is a highly personal process and the progression continually fluctuates depending on the circumstances of the moment. I, myself, commonly exhibit three different modes of grief. (Although I am sure there are others lurking, waiting to be exposed.) The personalities in the trio take their turns coming and going, sometimes intertwining with one another and at other intervals completely overshadowing a counterpart. They are predictable in their unpredictability. My current triad includes:

  • The Neon Sign: This is time I want everyone to take notice of my widowhood. I yearn to have my grief heralded by the town crier with exclamations of “Sympathy for the suffering!”...

4 Reasons to Cultivate Patience

4 Reasons to Cultivate PatienceAs virtues go, patience is a quiet one.

It’s often exhibited behind closed doors, not on a public stage: A father telling a third bedtime story to his son, a dancer waiting for her injury to heal. In public, it’s the impatient ones who grab all our attention: drivers honking in traffic, grumbling customers in slow-moving lines. We have epic movies exalting the virtues of courage and compassion, but a movie about patience might be a bit of a snoozer.

Yet patience is essential to daily life — and might be key to a happy one. Having patience means being able to wait calmly in the face of frustration or adversity, so anywhere there is frustration or adversity — i.e., nearly everywhere — we have the opportunity to practice it. At home with our kids, at work with our colleagues, at the grocery store with half our city’s population, patience can make the difference between annoyance and equanimity, between worry and tranquility.

Religions and philosophers have long praised the virtue of patience; now researchers are starting to do so as well. Recent studies have found that, sure enough, good things really do come to those who wait. Some of these science-backed benefits are detailed below, along with three ways to cultivate more patience in your life.

1. Patient people enjoy better mental health

This finding is probably easy to believe if you call to mind the stereotypical impatient person: face red, head steaming. And sure...

7 Ways Mindfulness Is the Key to Your Success At Work and Life

7 Ways Mindfulness Is the Key to Your Success At Work and Life

Everything in your life, including your work, your relationships, and your health is impacted by how you:

  • Focus
  • Communicate
  • Control your emotions
  • Listen
  • Maintain your energy level
  • Make decisions
  • Prioritize what’s important

Think about it. Whatever role you’re putting the most energy into right now, whether it’s as an employee, a spouse, a parent, or something else, you could benefit from mastering each of these seven skills.

But in the busyness of our daily lives, these often take a backseat to an ever increasing demand for our time and attention.

Seriously, with everything expected of you at home and work, when was the last time you were able to slow down and breathe, much less pay attention to developing your focus, communication, and these other skills?

My guess, it’s been awhile. In fact, on most days you’re probably feeling so overwhelmed, worried, and stressed that you’re happy just to make it through another day.

Am I right?

If this sounds anything like the life you’ve been living, I mean existing in, I get it. Until a little over a year ago, I was feeling the same way.

Most days I was just going through the motions. I wanted more, I expected more, but instead I just settled for just surviving another day.

That is until I tried mindfulness meditation.

Starting with my first mindfulness meditation session a little...

7 Reasons Productive People Go to Bed Early

7 Reasons Productive People Go to Bed Early

It’s bedtime and you still have two more hours of work to do. Should you stay up later to get your work done? Or just call it a day even though your unfinished work will mean you have more to do tomorrow?

While staying up an extra hour or two to finish your work can be tempting, missing just a few hours of sleep today can have serious consequences tomorrow. Here are seven reasons why the most productive people go to bed early:

1. You can’t retain what you learn when you’re tired.

The quantity and quality of your sleep plays a major role in your ability to learn new information. Sleep deprivation impairs your focus, attention, and working memory. That means you may have to repeat tasks several times and may be more likely to make careless mistakes.

2. Your mood becomes unstable when you’re drained.

Studies show a lack of sleep can lead to increased irritability and mood changes. Skimping on sleep on a consistent basis sleep could lead to more serious psychological problems,...
