Mental Health:

Panic Disorder:

We have all felt panicked at some time in our lives. When faced with a life-threatening situation, the heart pounds, muscles tense; we are ready for "fight or flight." More than 3 million Americans have panic disorder.

 
Balanced Life:

Disaster-Proofing Your Documents

As we head into hurricane and tornado season, disaster preparation should be on all of our minds. Part of preparing for a disaster includes disaster-proofing your important documents -- that is, making sure that after a disaster you have the information and documentation necessary to speed the recovery process.

Financial:

Financial Tip: Stash Some Cash for Emergencies

One of the first and most important steps you should take to safeguard your financial stability is to set aside an emergency reserve fund. The idea is that the fund can be used either for a major unexpected cost (such as medical expenses) or to cover your basic living expenses if you (or your spouse or partner) is temporarily out of work.

Health:

Prevention of Heart Disease Starts in Childhood

You may have heard the old adage: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." It is sage advice when it comes to heart disease. By teaching your kids to follow a healthy lifestyle, you can help reduce their risk for heart disease later in life.

Legal:

Choosing Your Health Care Agent

When you make a durable power of attorney for health care, the most important decision you will face is deciding who your health care agent should be. (In your state, this person may also be called a health care proxy, surrogate, or attorney-in-fact.) Most people name their spouse, partner, a relative, or a close friend as their health care agent.

 
Small Business:

Salvaging a Troubled Business

Businesses in financial crisis are often swirling in chaos. Managers get consumed with putting out fires. But when you're moving from one emergency to another, it's easy to lose track of the road ahead.
 
Personal Growth:

Getting Feedback From Employees

Getting honest feedback is an important part of supervision. Of course, no one feels comfortable giving or receiving negative feedback. Here's how to get honest feedback and how to respond to it effectively.

Stress:

Understanding the Stress / Health Connection

Stress exists in your mind -- but it's also evident in your stomach, heart, muscles and even your toes. During stressful times, you body produces various chemicals, including cortisol, an immune-suppressing hormone. The more cortisol produced, the weaker your immune cells become and the more susceptible you are to illness.
