On Regrets and Going For It… Yah, Getting Off The Fence

Happy Easter Love Bugs! I am back from a wonderful few days in New York City with the family, and saw this while sipping coffee in bed this morning.

It’s a must share. A must read. And I think, a must follow. Thank you Dana, our most incredible Women On the Fence app developer for sharing this.

And thank you Gary, for such insightful words.

Hello beautiful ladies!

Just a quick note to wish those celebrating a very Happy Passover. I’m never one to judge what others do in their personal lives, so therefore, I thought this was quite funny.

21 Ways To Stress-Free Living and Uncluttering Your Life For Spring

Whenever March rolls around (my husband’s birthday), I always know it’s time for me to take stock of my life. It’s the time I start sweeping out the cobwebs; literally and figuratively. Winter’s snow melts away, and all the things you have been ignoring in your life, start to present themselves again. Aaah, I forgot about you! Spring is a great time to deal with these things head-on. And that’s not a bad thing– spring is about rebirth, renewal, regeneration.

Leaning In

Chances are, if you are a working woman, or have even turned on the news in the past few days, you’ve probably come across Sheryl Sandberg, COO and second in command at Facebook. She recently wrote a book called Lean In, and there has been a lot of controversy around her book. Yesterday, when Arianna Huffington asked me to contribute my voice to the Huffington Post Women’s community, I was happy to oblige. I have a STRONG opinion in this arena. Already a HuffPo contributor, this was a chance for me to either join the haters and skeptics, or Lean In, and agree with Sheryl Sandberg.

Eating Disorders, Dieting and Body Image: One Therapist’s Perspective

Being a psychologist is a challenging and intensely rewarding experience.

In my day job, I am a psychologist. Sounds humble enough, right? In my therapy role, I work with many types of patients, but mainly with women who have an eating disorder (usually anorexia or bulimia). It’s the world’s best day job, and I mean that sincerely.

The other day a woman walked into a doctor’s office and issued a demand that summed up why the world is in such a mess.

You Know You’re a Geezer (and Maybe a Cougar) When…

We’re goin’ light today, m’ladies! I have a cute story. Sooooo, I was in the green room this past Wednesday morning waiting for my weekly parenting segment on Global TV to start. Sitting in the room with me, was a familiar face. Familiar because I see him every Wednesday morning, usually in sweats and a sweatshirt, always waiting for his segment to begin too. He is one of the fitness experts on the new morning show. My segment is always Wednesdays at 8:40am, and his is always before mine, around 8:15am. He’s always polite when I walk in. Says hello and then doesn’t ever say another word. I say hello and never utter another word either. I’m too busy going over my segment notes to make sure I don’t forget any of my tips.
