Best of Our Blogs

I love a good to-do list. I begin (or end) each day creating my next to-do list.

(Nerd alert! Sometimes, I even write a “rough draft” to-do list!)

Generally, to-do lists help keep me organized and on track — often even during weekends. Still, I understand how some people (myself included) can get a little off track with them, as Psych Central writer Kelly Babcock explains below.

Check out his and all the other posts in today’s Best of Our Blogs.

Top of My List
(ADHD: Man of Distraction) — Kelly Babcock tells us why he loves — and HATES — his to-do lists. (You might be surprised to find it’s NOT because they mean he has things to do!)

How to Achieve Honest Communication With Your Partner
(Anger Management) — Aaron Karmin explains what some of us try to pass off as communication (“Hi, how are you?” “I’m fine, how are you?”) just doesn’t cut it in meaningful relationships and what we can do to remedy the “glib” and get back to honest communication.

Reconnecting With a Distant Partner
(Bonding Time) — Speaking of trouble in paradise, Holly Brown discusses the different reasons some of us feel “distant” from our partners and possible solutions (like communication!).

Can’t Sleep? Try This Guided Meditation Talkdown Video
(Channel N) — Sandra Kiume shares this (free!) meditation video with us as an alternative to sedatives and other sleep medications.

Your Life as an Experiment (and the Tools You Need to Run It)
(Going On the Ride of Your Life) — Ran Zilca points out that, although there’s more advice out there than we can measure, there’s no single recipe for an optimal life.
