News Flash: It’s Time to Learn to Accept Compliments and Receive Praise ~ This WON’T Make You “Big-Headed” (Promise!)

March 31st, 2015

By Judith Sherven, PhD NABBW’s Associate for Healthy Relationships Hear Yea! Hear Yea! Let it be known across the land: Receiving Praise and Compliments for Your Excellence Does NOT Make You Big-headed! Yet, in a recent workshop “Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous: It’s Time To Shatter Your Inner Glass Ceiling” (which my husband Jim Sniechowski, PhD and I present quite often as a career building and leadership boosting opportunity for corporate audiences) predictably some of the main reasons people gave about their difficulty receiving acknowledgment of their excellence were: I’ll... Read More

Parents Need to Recognize Their Goals for Collegiate Spring Break May Not Match Their Student’s Desires

March 17th, 2015

By Natalie Caine, M.A. NABBW’s Associate for Life in Transition Whether you are a first time parent of a college student or an experienced one, as Spring Break arrives, it’s likely you are planning their favorite meals and watching the clock, hoping their plane or car arrives on time. You’re anxious to have your family finally be “all together again.” And you can’t wait to finally see their faces! Meanwhile, your favorite college student likely has a totally different set of goals. I remember a group of college kids shared with me that they have been so stressed... Read More

What You Learn in Your 60s

March 16th, 2015

By Claude Forthomme (Nougat) for the NABBW Starting in 2014, there was a rash of Baby Boomer celebrations, from the Beatles appearing on the Ed Sullivan Show to President Kennedy’s assassination. Possibly because 2014 was a milestone of sorts, that was the year that all boomers, even the youngest ones born in 1964, passed their 50th year. As a result, most boomers are now facing the “second act” in their lives. And celebrating. Right or wrong, it’s all about Baby Boomers! The time has come to consider what it means for our generation, and, in passing, dispelling some serious... Read More

March 5th, 2015

Emerging With Wings: A True Story of Lies, Pain, And the LOVE That Heals Danielle Bernock http://emergingwithwings.com/ Reviewed by: Anne Holmes for the NABBW No doubt each and every person reading this review experienced some sort of hurtful statements or emotional pain growing up. Perhaps someone in your family – maybe a grandparent – told you that you were a “mistake?” That is, you were an unwanted child, an accident? Others of you were raised by parent who overzealously believed in the principle: “spare the rod and spoil the child.” To the point that you were physically abused. And... Read More

If You Want to Be Happy for the Rest of Your Life, Marry a Short Man (The Real Secrets of Finding True Love)

March 4th, 2015

By Jed Diamond, PhD, LSCW NABBW’s Associate for Male Menopause For more than 40 years I’ve been a marriage and family therapist specializing in helping women and men find the love of their life and keep their relationship alive and well. One of the main questions I’ve heard from literally thousands of women is the following: Where are all the good men? It seems that all the good ones are taken and the rest are all losers. What do I have to do to find true love? I suggest that they are looking for love in all the wrong places. I actually wrote a book called Looking for Love in All the Wrong... Read More

Why Namibia? Why Now?

March 4th, 2015

By Sandra Colony for the NABBW When a co-worker first told me in 2000 that he was traveling to Namibia, I admit it was not on my radar. In fact I didn’t know how to pronounce it. But upon his return, listening to him rave about the marvels of the landscape, the abundance of wildlife and the friendliness of the people, I got intrigued. It took me 8 years to get there – I had to get to the top countries on my existing bucket list such as Papua New Guinea, Ethiopia, Ghana, and, just in time, Syria – before I booked a flight to Namibia. Now, having now been there on multiple trips and heading... Read More

Sun Damage is Cumulative, But It Might Not Be Too Late to Save the Skin You’re In

March 1st, 2015

By Linda Ballou NABBW’s Adventure Travel Associate  A glint of jealousy flashed in the eyes of my fellow adventurers on the jet boat ride out of the Grand Canyon when I whipped out my lightweight mask, secured it to the frame of my sunglasses, and turned to face 60-mile-an hour winds. This handy defense against the elements helped protect my skin from the wind and intense glare of the sun reflecting on the water. Less than an ounce of protection in my pack prevented me from receiving skin damage with no cure. In Alaska, where I grew up, it is said that there is no such thing as bad weather... Read More
