Hells to the Yes on all of this! I help people figure out their lives for a living, but not by telling them what to do. I don’t know what’s right for them, but I do know that when they trust themselves and do a lot of the things you’ve named here, they will do just great — spectacularly even.

Stop watching the news.

Yes, please just stop. It’s not doing anyone any good. I haven’t watched the news in maybe 25 years and I still know what’s going on in the world. And most of it I can’t personally affect anyhow, so knowing the in depth of every tragedy or the latest Trump outrage just bums me out for no good reason. No thank you!

Dispelling cultural myths with research-driven stories. My favorite word is “specious.” Not fragile like a flower; fragile like a bomb! Twitter @ElleBeau
