Succeed Under Stress

Tonight on the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (CBS at 10 ET), all eyes will be on the breathtaking beauties in skimpy lingerie. What no one will see is the 47-year-old British man behind the curtain who makes certain that the show–the cumulative effort of nearly 1,000 artists and technicians–goes off without a hitch. And that’s just the way Hamish Hamilton likes it. “If we’re doing our job right, you’re almost unaware that we’re doing our job,” says Hamilton, who has directed every major live television event imaginable, from the Oscars to Super Bowl halftime shows to concert events with artists …read...

The Job Habit That Can Burn You Out

Faking it is just as bad in the boardroom: Hiding your real emotions during meetings makes the time less effective–and can leave you so exhausted, you’ll quit, reports a new study in the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology. You fudge your true feelings in order to save face and impress people in a powerful position, says study author Joseph Allen, Ph.D, of the University of Nebraska at Omaha. But while you may think nodding at your boss’ confusing explanation will score you points, focusing on impressions instead of the actual meeting means you’re missing the takeaways from the talk. Of course …read...

Date Ideas That Include Kids | Happen Magazine – Match.com

By Rosalind Cummings-Yeates You’ve reached that point of no return for singles with children. Your child is ready to be introduced to your significant other. But how do you plan an outing that will please a six-year-old as well as a thirty-something? Where do you find places that are child-friendly minus the video games and cardboard-stiff pizza? Remember, it’s important that your child as well as your date is comfortable, so active, minimal-fuss activities work the best for single parents on dates. The key is to provide opportunities to talk and get to know everyone — as well as have fun. Here are some ideas for enjoyable dates with children. 1. The great outdoors offer great dating opportunities Getting out into the fresh air instead of being holed up inside is always a good idea for kids. There’s plenty of space to run, jump and get out any nervousness that they may feel about meeting your new friend. Leisurely picnics, horseback riding, apple-picking, visits to the zoo, nature walks, bike-riding, or a beach excursion all provide outdoor activities that keep children occupied and adults unstressed.

Why Your Love Life Peaks At 40 | Happen Magazine – Match.com

By Debbie Magids, Ph.D. When your parents and relatives speak about “the good old days,” you can’t help but wonder — were they really that good? Men were the breadwinners, women were the homemakers and the stages of life were predetermined. Traditionally, your identity crisis began at age 40 By 25, a woman was married with at least one baby or she was considered to be an “old maid” — at 25, a man typically had a career and a “traditional” wife, or was deemed a failure. At 30 a woman was expected to devote her life to cooking, cleaning and raising the kids — meanwhile, a 30-year-old man usually worked a 60-hour week to get ahead. By 40, it was time for the “mid-life crisis” to begin. At that age, a man usually bought a sports car, if he wasn’t having a tryst with his secretary — and his female counterpart struggled with empty nest syndrome. Alone for the first time, reality would set in: who was a woman supposed to be if she wasn’t wiping someone’s nose? Today, turning 40 signals that you’re at the prime of your life Well, today is definitely nothing like your parents expected it to be. You’re living in a post-millennium world now. Society has evolved, along with the individual notion and perception of what constitutes “age.”  Read More >>...

D.I.Y. Gifts She'll Love

Forget fancy jewelry and shiny gadgets–what she really wants this year is to take matters into her own hands. People are more likely to appreciate gifts that require effort, according to new research from the University of Miami. Students who were asked to assemble a holiday elf out of paper cutouts placed a higher value on the finished item if they were allowed to be creative during the process. And that’s the keyword: creative. When a gift is designed so the assembly is a positive experience, the person who receives it sees extra benefit from putting it together–which makes the gift …read...

5 Signs Your Marriage Will Make It

Smile for the camera! It could save your marriage, shows a study from DePauw University in Indiana. Actually, it’s probably too late for that. The researchers found people who flashed the biggest, toothiest smiles in their yearbook and childhood photos were the most likely to dodge divorce later in life. How come? Men–but especially women–who grinned in photographs as youngsters tend to have more stable natures and are usually more emotionally upbeat. And both those characteristics improve the likelihood of marriage stability, the study authors explain. Here are four more weird indicators of a lasting union: Neither you nor your wife …read...

Does Love at First Sight Exist?

Gut check: How you feel the moment you lay eyes on your eventual mate can help you gauge the long-term success of your marriage, finds new research from Florida State University. While almost every newlywed says he feels excited about his nuptials, those expressions of optimism are pretty worthless when it comes to predicting marriage satisfaction four years down the road, the study shows. When researchers used word-association tests to measure “gut-level” instincts–basically, your unconscious or unstated feelings about your new spouse–they found most people know instinctively whether their marriage is headed for trouble. “Newly-married spouses want to …read...

The Work Tip Winners Know

John Wayne’s humble Oscar acceptance speech for True Grit is still talked about as one of the all-time best, while James Cameron’s for Titanic–“I’m the king of the world!”–is still ridiculed. Turns out, winners could learn a lot from the Duke’s toned-down approach to victory, says Elise Kalokerinos, a doctoral researcher at Australia’s University of Queensland. Compared to grinning winners, champs who hold back most of their emotion are rated 10 percent more likeable and 22 percent less prideful, according to the research. Humble winners are also viewed as more considerate of other people’s feelings and also …read...

10 Things You Can Tell About Her in 10 Minutes

You don’t have to be a psychic to peer into a woman’s thoughts. Even when they don’t say anything, women send a flood of subtle physical cues and gestures that can reveal their truest intentions–including if they secretly want you. Here’s how to pick up on 10 of her biggest tells: 1. She’s got big peepers. When you’re talking to her, watch to see if the black centers in her eyes grow larger. If they do, that means she’s excited by what you’re saying, and maybe even sexually aroused. A study at Cornell University found that when women looked at pornographic …read...
