The Health Benefit of Tears
By Judith Orloff MD
For over twenty years as physician, I’ve witnessed, time and again, the healing power of tears. Tears are your body’s release valve for stress, sadness, grief, anxiety, and frustration.

By Louis Chew
When Zeno of Cyprus was shipwrecked and stranded on Athens, he wasn’t expecting any good to happen.
Having lost everything and with not much else to do, Zeno wandered into a bookshop and was quickly absorbed by the teachings of Socrates. After studying with the great philosophers of his time, he decided to impart his wisdom to anyone who would care to listen.
Thus the philosophy of Stoicism was born. Zeno’s teachings would quickly spread and would be adopted by both slaves and kings alike. As he would later joke: “I made a prosperous voyage when I suffered shipwreck.”

Kissing And Driving
BY Alan Cohen
What do kissing and driving have in common?
I saw a romantic greeting card which showed a couple kissing in the front seat of a car. The message said, “If you can kiss while driving safely, you are not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”

We get into trouble not because we do things that are wrong, but because we approach our activities with divided intentions.
