Remember when Princess Diana said that the problem with her marriage is that there were three people in it? Caregivers of Alzheimers patients can have the opposite problem. As one caregiver said, “There’s only one person in this relationship, and it’s not me.”
A speaker on stress management had that old glass of water that was either half full or half empty. But she had a different message in mind...
An exciting new study proves what we've "known" all along: people who maintain positive emotions live on an upward spiral toward happiness and health!
