Most people by this time of the year have put together some sort of list (or resolutions, if you want to call them that), they want to achieve this year. If you haven’t done so, it is not too late. I haven’t done so either.
Brides, are you getting plenty of sleep? Catching your zzzs is key during the stress of wedding planning, and we say, how ever you're cramming them in (a quick nap at the office, a snooze before dinner, you name it), grand!

Recent research straight from the lab demonstrates that sexual activity in adults may improve mental performance and help produce new neurons in thehippocampus, which is the part of the brain where long-term memories are formed.

It's a new year, which means it's time for new goals, new resolutions, a new you. But hopefully the one thing you won't be trading in this new year is your relationship. I'm getting to the age where most of my peers are walking down the aisle, where I'm witness to new and blossoming love.

It is good to start your year with resolutions because a life without a mission and vision is like a dead leaf drifting on the sea. However, as you draw out your resolutions, appreciate that your relationship is the most important human investment because a healthy relationship spills over to boost all areas of your life. On the other hand, a poor relationship can make or unmake you for life.
