Excess cortisol is associated with serious health issues like high blood pressure and endocrine imbalance. Too much stress is as dangerous as that long-extinct tiger. Our current environment is out of whack and getting worse.

Mindfulness in its simplest form is merely nonjudgmental focus. It may be simpler to choose one regular task and focus your attention on the process. When you wash dishes, wash dishes.

I have always been fascinated by dating and romantic relationships. As a teenager my friends and I spent hours discussing who did what and why.
I have always been particularly sensitive to the disappointment and pain that women experience as a result of romantic relationships. In graduate school I studied how marriages change over time, how domestic violence physically and mentally impacts married women and their children, and how dating violence affects single women.

I resisted as much as I could, but I knew then that I had to find a way to communicate to women everything I understood about the psychology of relationships.

I have been Ms. Typed, and I was surrounded by other women who were as well, but we had no idea what to do about it.
