The power of our thoughts is often underestimated and we let our mind create the worst scenarios even when there is no real threat. Thus, we put ourselves under unnecessary stress and anxiety, while attracting bad energies in our lives.
Winter has retreated into the depths of the earth, and the spring sun rays smile over the numb earth. Now that the snow is gone, it is the best time to revive our gardens with vivid colours and exquisite floral fragrances.
Gratitude, as defined by Harvard Medical School, is “a thankful appreciation for what an individual receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives … As a result, gratitude also helps people connect to something larger than themselves as individuals – whether to other people, nature, or a higher power”. Thus gratitude is more than saying the formal “Thank you”: it is an emotion, an attitude and like all the healthy behavioural/thinking patterns, gratitude must be learned from an early age.

Since February is considered the month of love, I thought that it would be great to indulge in romantic novels, with twisted plots and happy endings written with passion by classic and contemporary writers.
Sometimes forgiving somebody can be difficult, especially when those who hurt you are precisely those you love, trust or helped the most. Disappointment, confusion, anger or sadness can be experienced all at once when we are hurt.
In the evolutionary psychology, jealousy represented a survival mechanism that aimed to protect a group or a couple from potential intruders. Thus, looking from an extensive perspective, psychologists claim that jealousy was generated by reproductive challenges. More specifically, males were facing paternal insecurity if they were suspecting their mate of infidelity. Females’ insecurity, on the other hand, was caused by emotional aspects, worrying that their partner may develop emotional attachment with other females, which could have diverted all the reserved resources and affection for their children, towards somebody else.
