Intuition is our inner radar

According to scientists, our sixth sense — otherwise known as intuition — improves with age. In the June issue of Michigan Prime, I discuss how this inner radar can help us make better decisions, avoid danger, and improve our relationships. You’ll find the print edition of the supplement in your Sunday Detroit Free Press, or you can read it online (page 3) here.

Blogging, up close and personal

As a lifestyles columnist, I’ve been concerned about new research on how social media use impacts our mental health, productivity, and well-being. I’m also watching new developments in social media privacy issues.

Which is part of the reason I decided to start a personal blog, Things that make me happy I like to think of it as an online journal, a safe place where I can share my creative projects or whatever strikes my interest at the moment — new books I’m reading, political musings, family updates, inspirational quotes, photos of my gardens and places I’m visiting — and anything else I’d share with good friends. (I’ll continue to use Cindy La Ferle’s Home Office strictly as a professional resume and for public writing workshop announcements.)
