Having a sense of meaning in life is good for you. So how do you get one?

The pursuit of happiness and health is a popular endeavour, as the preponderance of self-help books would attest. Yet it is also fraught.

And that includes at the office. I recently conducted a study on a broad range of workplace issues, including how the stress of our increasingly divisive politics is affecting worker health, […]

Things your husband wishes you would do less often

People often say marriage is hard work. According to Dr. Stephen Mentz, a leading authority on families, children, youth, and the life course, attributed marriage difficulty to four main reasons — all of which have to do with tension. Couples battle tension between commitment and self-fulfillment, tension between the modern view of marriage not only as an “emotional bond” but […]
