Managing Stress when you feel Crushed by It


There are many days I roll out of bed, and I want to sell everything and move to a small coastal town in Italy near my family where everything is just simpler. Why do we as a culture put so much pressure on ourselves? We are like ants... moving from place to place with a mission, but that mission ge...

We all remember when we were that age. No one wants to stand out and be different in a negative light, especially when you are a teenager. Here is the stepwise approach to managing this common dermatologic annoyance.

Let's go back in time first...spring and summer of 2020. The world changed and no-one knew what to expect. We were faced with a crisis we won't soon forget, and technically speaking, it's not completely resolved now...over two years later. It was a time of great loss for many in lots of different wa...

What Do I Wanna Be When I Grow Up?


It hit me a few days ago when I was talking to a colleague at work about our career paths. He said "I have a history of severe depression. Why in the world did I pick a career where people are whining and complaining all the time?" (He is a former surgical Physician Assistant). He did go o...

One of my favorite desserts of all-time is crème brûlée. That first break through the flame-caramelized layer of sugar is so incredibly satisfying, as is that sweet vanilla bean taste. Years ago while gazing the spice section of a local market, a small packet of cooking lavender caugh...

Teaching our Kids to be Patient in a World of Instant Gratification

I don't know what happened. As I've gotten older, I have less of a filter on my mouth. I also have more confidence and less patience. For example: I'm in a packed grocery store and the woman in front of me checking out is having a conversation with the cashier like she's at a local happy-hour, compl...

Summer is in Full Swing

The post-Covid era is now full of remote working employees. It started off as a way to isolate and socially distance, but employers have realized that the system works in many situations and it is cost-effective, especially with overhead costs like rent, insurance, and utilities. So if ...

The history of crepes dates back to 13th century Brittany, France. It seems a housewife there accidentally dribbled some thin porridge onto a hot, flat cooktop. Since people back then weren’t inclined to waste even their smallest cooking mistakes, she ate it. The rest, as they say, is history.
