Sadness: a natural antidote

The next piece ponders on our capacity to feel sad and whether we aren't drugging away this treat. According to a new book, sadness may have an evolutionary purpose and it could even be good for us. In fact its authors explain how in the last couple of years sadness has been highly misdiagnosed as depression. Even though it's true there's a growing tendency to find clinical solutions to cultural issues, it seems risky to accept sorrow in a way that it turns into a somewhat chronic state. Besides, an evolutionist explanation falls short when it vindicates gloomy feelings just because they have "survived" time and stayed with us for so long. If our threshold of tolerance to sadness continues to be tinkered, this might damper the differentiation of the joyful states from the instances that are not.

Need a Life? She’ll Arrange One

Need some help with the work-life balance? Maybe you are seeking some advice on real state or even on relationships. Then a personal manager or a life coach might be what you are looking for. In recent years, personal assistants who not only organize one's life, but also provide its clients with much more complex arrangements (like introducing them to their friends) have multiplied. Perhaps this sudden need for external assistance, this crave for quick-outsourced solutions, hints at a certain detachment from one's life, a silent intention of relocating the decision-making process outside the individual scope.

 
The coaching industry in America is growing by 18 per cent a year, and it is gradually permeating our financial and political institutions, too.
