    Power Struggle: Why Women Compete

    Power Struggle: Why Women Compete
    Recently, columnist Meghan McCain wrote an essay on how the Republican Party was failing to attract young people. How did conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham respond? By sarcastically deriding her as “plus-sized.” Ouch. And these are two women who are supposed to be on the same side! We’re taught that women should stand together in solidarity, so it was more ...

    The Dark Side of Sleeping Pills

    The Dark Side of Sleeping Pills
    By now, most of us have heard of the "Ambien defense." A certain scandalous professional golfer used to text his mistresses requesting the sleep aid, and other people have reported performing a multitude of crazy actions under the veil of slumber that this drug and other, similar sleeping pills induce—ranging from binge eating to dangerous driving to uncharacteristic sexual encounters and ...

    The Powerful Effects of the Human Voice

    The Powerful Effects of the Human Voice
    For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved listening to the radio. The mellifluous voices of my favorite programs’ hosts—from David Allan Boucher, the DJ of the easy-listening nighttime show "Bedtime Magic", to Ira Glass, of NPR’s "This American Life"—never fail to calm me down and make me feel right at home. On the other hand, when I hear a ...

    6 Telltale Signs of an Ill-Fitting Bra

    6 Telltale Signs of an Ill-Fitting Bra
    I used to assume that the oft-cited statistic about 80 percent of women wearing the wrong size bra was a scare tactic by the lingerie industry to sell more goods. Then I got measured on a whim recently and realized I’ve been wearing the wrong cup and band sizes for years. Others I know also found out after being fitted that ...

    10 Essential Smartphone Apps For the Working Mom

    10 Essential Smartphone Apps For the Working Mom
    Always being “on” can seem like a curse for busy moms. Fortunately, smartphone applications these days can be your saving grace. At a christening I attended recently for my good friend’s baby girl, an iPhone saved the day after her older daughter ran screaming down the church aisle. I don’t know how we would have gotten through the event without having ...

    Cure Menstrual Cramps Without Popping Pills

    Cure Menstrual Cramps Without Popping Pills
    Most women, during most months of the year, experience menstrual cramps. Some—you lucky lasses—have only mild to moderate pain during their periods. The rest of us, though, get waylaid by discomfort on a monthly basis, sometimes to the point where it interrupts our normal lives. Sure, we can take over-the-counter (OTC) medicine, like Midol and Tylenol, and prescription therapies, like birth ...

    10 Funky Facts About Fragrances
    If you're the sensitive type — the always sneezing, quick-to-get-a-rash-from-a-new-detergent guy or gal — someone has probably already told you to avoid fragrance. Ditto if you've ever been pregnant. In fact, it’s come up as a major no-no in every post we’ve done in this series. But how much do you really know about fragrance? Chances are, not a whole ...

    How Colors Alter Mood

    How Colors Alter Mood
    As a kid, I relished organizing M&Ms by color and eating the “best” ones first and relegating the “gross” tan-colored ones to the trash. To this day, I reach for yellow and red peanut M&Ms first, believing that they’re far superior to all other varieties without really understanding why. Then I read about a study that showed these colors to be ...

    The Supportive Workplace

    The Supportive Workplace
    As the end to summertime draws near, I find myself dreading the impending cold weather and shorter daylight hours. The combination of the two usually results in a decreased drive to exercise on days that I work because my routine of running post workday in daylight that extends to 9pm is interrupted by chilly temperatures and sunsets prior to 6pm. Kindly ...

    Nursing Wardrobe Malfunction

    Nursing Wardrobe Malfunction
    So back in January when I started my peds rotation for school, I went scrub shopping to finally buy some cute scrubs. I found a top that I thought was oh-so-cute and trendy and I loved it. And my typical scrub pants, which are usually very efficient with 2 pockets on each side, did not help the situation any. Now they’ve ...

    Do Glasses Make You Look Smarter?

    Do Glasses Make You Look Smarter?
    It used to be pretty hard being a bespectacled kid. For years, I was inundated with the message that glasses are unequivocally uncool. Movies like She’s All That or The Princess Diaries didn’t help—both leading ladies didn’t get a second look from their guys until their four eyes became two. That’s because glasses were usually equated with brains, not beauty; as ...

    6 Nasty Things Lurking in Your Cosmetics

    Quick disclaimer: We are patently against fearmongering, so don't anyone start panicking. That being said, when you look at some of the ingredients used in cosmetics and body-care products, it raises some serious questions of the "How is that even possible?" variety. Well, here's how: The cosmetics industry is self-policed, operating with very little regulatory oversight. As such, it is ...

    How to Make Friends In and Out of the Hospital

    How to Make Friends In and Out of the Hospital
    When we were younger, making friends was easy. School provides us with an instant pool of people our own age that we interact with on a daily basis, who are in the same boat we are. But once we leave nursing school and enter the real world, finding friends can be a more difficult task, especially if you have to relocate ...

    5 White Lies We Tell Our Doctors

    5 White Lies We Tell Our Doctors
    It starts harmlessly enough: you’re sitting in a doctor’s examining room, reflecting on how well you’ve taken care of your body since your last visit a year ago. Sure, you might have hit the bars more and the gym less than you meant to, but you think you’ve been pretty good overall. Not so fast—on second thought, those habits also mean ...
