Here’s my Friday Reading Roundup with some links you might find interesting:
- We need a better understanding about what someone with depression is going through. This article shows us that people with depression find it difficult to distinguish between their emotions – especially between negative emotions like anger, sadness, guilt and embarrassment.
- Are you addicted to your work? A senior lecturer at Harvard Business School says it may be counterproductive.
- Science tells us that the old adage to “sleep on it” might actually help when you have to resolve big tasks and need creativity.
- Oxytocin is known as the “love hormone”. It is released in a mother during childbirth and helps her to bond with the baby in spite of all the pain. It is also one of the hormones responsible for a sexual orgasm. The results of a recent experiment show that it might be useful to harness this hormone in the fight against alcoholism. It helped people who were trying to detox from alcohol, beat the cravings.
- In the past I have read convincing scientific explanations for “near death experiences”. But now a neurosurgeon is creating quite a stir. He claims that he personally had one of these “life after death” experiences.
- I enjoyed this post about your past’s proper place, when creating your future.
