One way to tackle that trauma is with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). It was what Britain’s Prince Harry was seen undergoing in the 2021 Apple TV mental...

Food has long played a part in our emotional journeys. Feeling depressed after a breakup? A tub of Ben & Jerry’s will do the trick. Celebrating a milestone birthday? A brunch at the finest restaurant in town is booked. However, the correlation between what we consume and how we feel is more significant than you might think.
