Anger: Fast and Furious!

Anger: Fast and Furious! © 23 July 2011 by John Sovec, MA, LMFT A recent experience reminded me of the power of paying attention to the challenges that present themselves in our daily lives. I was on my way to the store, going over my grocery list in my mind as I drove. As I pulled into the busy parking lot, I saw a space and pulled in to park. I opened my car door and a man started barking obscenities, ranting furiously that I had taken his parking space.

At this point, as in any moment that involves the presence of intense emotion, I had a choice...I could mirror the rage of the man screaming at me or I could remain centered and detached; acknowledging his need while keeping myself from internalizing his anger. I chose to stay centered, told the man that I was sorry, and offered to move my car so that he could have the space. My calmness caught him off guard. He got very quiet, said that it wasn't necessary and walked away.

Be positive and age with grace

Be positive and age with graceLONDON: Aging successfully has been linked with a preference for positive, emotionally gratifying experiences.

German scientists studied this effect by using neuro imaging to evaluate brain engagement in young and old adults while they performed a specialized task that included supposedly irrelevant pictures of either neutral, happy, sad or fearful faces.

During parts of the task when they did not have to pay as much attention, the elderly subjects were significantly more distracted by the happy faces, according to a University Medical Centre statement.

When this occurred, they had increased engagement in the part of the brain that helps control emotions. "The lessons of healthy aging seem to be similar to those of resilience, throughout life," noted John H. Krystal, editor of Biological Psychiatry.

How do we define infidelity in the age of the Internet?In the not so distant past it was whispering couples hiding in dark smoky bars, lipstick stained collars and clandestine motel room romps that made up the concrete realities of relationship infidelity. But in today’s world of online confidential chat, private web browsing, instant messaging and endless porn, not to mention mobile ‘apps’ that locate available sex partners as readily as a decent Italian restaurant, simply defining what makes someone a cheater has have become a lot harder to pin down.http://blogs.psychcentral.com/sex/2011/07/infidelity-in-the-age-of-the-internet/
