Parkland Florida. Valentine’s Day, 2018. Another mass shooting. Countless lives and dreams shattered. See something, say something was not enough. We also need to do something.

MSD students are leading the charge to change gun laws to ban semi-automatic weapons. How can you help your kids - and yourself - deal with the stress of wondering where the next school shooting will be?

Stress is a way of life for many people. Endless to-do lists and deadlines. Racing to get kids to school. Time with your partner. Walking the dog. The dreaded laundry.

Happy people live happier lives. No surprise there!
Why does happiness matter? When you live your life in alignment with your values, you’ll find authentic happiness. It’s much different and far deeper than chasing moments of fleeting happiness.
