Bullying is typically defined as any kind of ongoing physical or verbal mistreatment in which there is an imbalance of power. The bully’s victim is usually upset by the experience, while the bully is either unaffected or is pleased by the victim’s discomfort.

We all need to feel connections in our lives
Posted: June 24, 2015 - 12:00 am

I definitely believe the underlying issue with childhood bullying, lack of compassion/ empathy for others, recent episodes of violence and the “you vs. them” mentality begins with the absence of human connection. It seems we as a society no longer look up to make eye contact with strangers. Everyone is so “busy” on their phones, over-thinking, getting to where they are going that we often run across many people a day and miss the opportunity to connect with them.

We often hear about the damaging effects of the stress hormone cortisol on our bodies. Research is providing us with an overwhelming amount of science that links high cortisol levels with anxiety, restlessness, irritability, high blood pressure, sleep disturbance, weight issues and even early death.
