There’s an air of finality to the invoice that your Health Insurance Company sends your way. You assume that their agents understand your coverage better than you do, so you accept the bill for what it is and go about searching the couch cushions for a few thousand dollars.
They give you peace of mind, they somehow manage to keep a straight face while you unabashedly rattle off awkward questions and they belong to the small yet privileged few that can truly claim they’ve seen you naked. Though your Mother or your Father may be the one to “kiss your boo-boo,” it’s the men and women in the scrubs and rubber gloves that do the real work. At least, that’s the idea.
Selfies, arrogance, vanity… Narcissism manifests itself in a long list of strange and interesting ways. Today on Healthversed, we’re going to reveal 15 surefire signs that your pretty, funny, too good to be true better half is actually a narcissist. Let’s go!
Before we get started, I want to make it clear: I enjoy being a grownup. For starters, high school is over (fist pump), I can eat whatever I want, I can sleep in if I want to, I can go on vacation if I want to… The freedom is great! But, being a grownup isn’t all it’s cracked up to be either.
8 years of Barrack Obama granted a lot of America’s wishes. For starters, he proved to the entire world that inspiration, intelligence and grace can overcome even the largest obstacles. I mean, being the first African-American president is nothing to shake a stick at.
I know, I know… all diets are “the worst,” if only because they prevent you from eating the things that you really, really love. Also, they usually don’t work. Whether they’re too limiting to realistically keep up, too much work to maintain or just too darn bland to enjoy, there’s a reason most nutritionists consider “diet” a dirty word.
The holidays can be a dual edged sword. They’re full of music, food, love and good old fashioned cheer… but they’re often coupled with a long list of social obligations, a long list of unfavorable social interactions and a long list of charges to your credit card. Everyone is stressed out during the holidays and, for those of us who suffer from mental illness, that strain is often magnified.
Hey, if you’re a teetotaler, that’s cool too. But, for the rest of us, turning down that third shot offered by your company’s CEO at the office Christmas party can be tricky. But you’re in luck!

Obesity has plagued the modern world for decades. And solving it isn’t as simple as, say, telling everyone to put down the Oreos. It’s a complex, multi-faceted social issue stemming from equal parts education, culture, poverty and industry. The effects of widespread obesity begin with staggering healthcare costs and ripple through our culture.
Navigating the health food landscape isn’t easy. Even if you’re disciplined enough to sidestep the snack aisle, you still need to watch your portion sizes. In most countries, packaged food must include the suggested serving size. That said, it’s easy to get crossed up.
Imagine a world without hot beverages. No hot chocolate at the skating rink. No hot apple cider at the orchard. No sweet tea at Grandma’s brunch. Hot drinks keep the world spinning. At least, in the business world they do. I couldn’t tell you the last time I woke up without the help of a steaming, deliciously brewed cup of Joe.
Freddy Krueger is retired, Jason is deceased and Scream hasn’t been scary for decades. No, these days the scariest thing about Halloween is also the sweetest. We’re all entitled to indulge, and cheat days make the world spin, but your body is a temple and it’s your duty to exorcise it of those coco-covered demons.
Alcohol is deadly. There’s no other way to put it. In the short term, alcohol has been shown to negatively impact sleep, it can destroy personal relationships, it can decimate your savings account and it can cause major weight fluctuations. The long-term effects are much more grim.
