Does Watching The News Make You Anxious? Here’s What To Do!

Leslie Carr

Whether we like it or not we live in a time where watching the news appears to be an exercise in anxiety and depression. Regardless of whether it’s local, international, cable, or evening – its producers rarely have something uplifting to report. Missing planes. Mud slides. Climate change. Colony collapse. I can’t remember the last… Continue Reading →

Yes, Your Partner Can Change! But You Have To As Well!

Leslie Carr

People often ask me if I truly believe that people can change, and I always answer with the same response: “If I didn’t, I’d be out of a job.” I know for sure that people don’t change unless they want to, nor until they’re significantly motivated to do it, but I see people change all… Continue Reading →

LeslieCarr

As I type this, I’m sitting in a San Francisco cafe with campy Christmas music on blast. Fresh off the presses is national news about people who recently resorted to fisticuffs over flat screen TVs, and one woman even got tased in a mall.

‘It’s All in Your Head’ – A Psychologist’s Take On ‘Mind Over Medicine’!

LeslieCarr

When Lissa Rankin first told me that she was writing a book about the impact that our thoughts, feelings and beliefs can have on our physical health, I was enthralled.

Lately a number of people have expressed to me that they think it’s surprising and strange that their past circumstances contribute to their current reality. More than one person has told me that it literally feels like a “cliché” to them that their relationship with their parents, for example, bears weight on the way that… Continue Reading →

Your Step-by-Step, Empirically-Validated Guide To Manifesting!

My guess is that in this day and age, especially among The Daily Love community, a concept like manifesting needs no introduction.

The Lost Art Of Thinking: Why You Should Unplug, Tune In And Drop Out!

I don’t know about you, but something feels different about my brain from how it did five or six years ago, and I’m not referring to age-related decline.  Something about it feels… full. It’s not like that all the time – thankfully – but it’s an unmistakeable feeling that I get after I’ve spent a… Continue Reading →
