IT’S NO SECRET that I have a soft spot for nurses. My husband is one: He works in an emergency department in New York City, where we live. Like pretty much every nurse I’ve ever met, he has always downplayed the enormity of what he does. In recent months, friends from all over have been calling and writing to check on him and thank him. “I only work part-time,” he argues, to which one friend said, “Oh, so you only save lives some days, as opposed to never, like me?” Prevention also loves nurses: We’ve given out awards to them, and we rely on the smart counsel from the nurse practitioner on our advisory board. We know that nurses aren’t secondary to doctors—nursing is another field entirely, one of the caring…

The Plastic Problem When scientists sounded the alarm about the chemical BPA in plastic items (research linked it to hormonal, heart, and cognitive problems, to name a few), companies started manufacturing products they called BPA-free. But several new studies now warn that consumers should also be wary of these BPA-free items because substitute materials used in their construction may be harmful…

BEANS “You can substitute canned or dried beans for ground meat in chili, tacos, or burgers, or add them to cold salads,” says Bauer. Lentils are also great and cook quickly; simmer them with diced tomatoes and your favorite seasonings for a hearty side dish. Both lentils and beans are an easy way to bulk up soups and stews. GRAINS “With both protein and fiber, oats are one of the healthiest breakfast options, and you can personalize them by adding fruit or nuts,” says Bauer. Oats can also be a binder substitute for meatloaf or meatballs if you don’t have breadcrumbs. Rice, quinoa, and pasta are other versatile go-tos; you can find noodles or rice made from whole-wheat flour, chickpeas, and more. Top with steamed or sautéed veggies.

learning to listen

Each of us has a powerful yet unassuming gift: the capacity to listen. Research proves that active listening engenders empathy, soothes stress, and builds self-esteem. However, we’re flooded with information 24/7, making it too easy to tune out other people. To build some listening muscle, determine which listening level typifies you right now (don’t judge yourself too harshly if your answer is level one—it’s where most of us are), then use the advice to grow to the next level. LEVEL ONE: INTERNAL LISTENING At this stage, you’re mainly listening to your inner voice and thinking about what you will say. LEVEL TWO: FOCUSED LISTENING Here, you’re paying attention to the other person’s needs, aspirations, or concerns. Try to reflect what you have understood so far through paraphrasing and clarifying. Make it known that you care about…
