Eat properly, exercise frequently, be mindful, no drugs, no booze, no argument. Does that sound familiar? I should have ordered the salad. I would have gone to the gym if I had the time. I could have said no to that glass of wine. I am weak. We all know how to be healthy. Sometimes […]

There’s a bit in one of my favourite all-time films, Broadcast News, where the dorky male best friend is explaining to the sparky, over-achieving heroine (Holly Hunter in an Oscar nominated performance) that he is too insecure to find love.
