It isn’t always easy to navigate the social landscape at school. Making friends and getting involved can feel tough for anyone starting a new school year, whether at a new school or not. Here are a few tips on how to become more involved:
One of the best lessons any of us learn from school is that—before we even get there—it’s a good thing to do anything that keeps the kids from whining, the parents from screaming and the bus driver from tapping his fingers on the steering wheel and glancing at his watch while he waits.
The back-to-school madness is approaching. Gone will be the lazy summer days where late nights, sleeping in and lax routines were the norm. It’s back to juggling the demands of your job with the needs of your on-the-go children while also squeezing in chores, homework, making dinner and shuttling everyone to athletic practices, recitals and doctors’ appointments. And, oh yeah, at some point, everyone is supposed to sleep.
Our souls are yearning for us to slow down. “More and more of us are looking for peace and calm in our crazy-busy lives,” notes Barbara Fordyce, clinical psychologist and operator of Barbara Fordyce & Associates Comprehensive Psychological Services.
More people are obese now than ever before. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that 39.6 percent of adults and 18.5 percent of children were considered obese in 2015-16, which is the most recent year that figures are available. It’s the highest percentage ever documented by the survey.
Chances are, someone you love is struggling with mental health issues. About 1 in 5 Americans will experience mental illness in a given year, and more than 50 percent of Americans will be diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their lives, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
