Smartphones & Mental Health

The orienting response is a biological advantage that our ancestors depended on for survival. Any type of auditory and visual change in their environment would immediately trigger a series of physiological reactions that helped them perceive danger in order to survive.

Beat Winter Skin Blues

Winter skin is coming (or for many, already here), which means itchiness and dry patches. Why is that? Because winter air with its low temps and lower humidity is literally sucking your moisture barrier dry. How can you make it stop? Try these hacks. Winter itch isn’t the seasonal reversal of spring fever where you’re itching for more winter. It’s an actual itch with a reputation for flaring up during cold spells.
