People sometimes ask me, What is the single biggest thing you’ve done to get your health on track and manage stress? My answer is pretty simple.

3 Things You Need to Do if You Want Your Marriage to Have a Fighting Chance

Sometimes, my husband gets on my last nerve. I don’t care how wonderful I think he is (and he is wonderful), he is human. He has the capacity to work my nerves. But I’m no fool.

I grew up in New York City with a busy mom who never got a driver’s license. Needless to say, I was eager to learn how to drive once I went off to college. In college, my friend (now husband) taught be how to drive on a 1984 Cadillac. After driving that car, I was ready to drive for sure. A few years later I got my first car and I have driven a number...
