Today is Tuesday, July 4th!

I like this page, so I created one:

I haven't updated my NOW page in so long; this is why I would never be a good blogger, and it's the same reason I stink at Twitter!

My new ebook "Love, Loss, and the Space Between" is out! Go buy it! It's based on the columns I wrote for the website The link should send you to Amazon site. If you like it, please spread the word!

Here's a whiteboard explainer video about the new book!

I've been reading Tara Brach's book, Radical Acceptance. It's pretty awesome, and I also just finished Ryan Holiday's Ego is the Enemy, which is terrific as well. I highly recommend both!

We have a new paper out on narrative expressive writing and heart changes over time following marital separation. Check out the press release.

We also have a new paper out on body mass, inflammation, and changes in cognition over time. Here's the UA News story. And, here's the paper. And, here's an interesting NPR story on the general topic that includes a link to our paper.

We have a new paper out on divorce and health that pushes hard for good theory in this area. See it here.

I am also working on an interesting new project to prevent type 2 diabetes. Here is a brief piece from the APS Observer on the project.

I published a paper last year on social integration and sleep disturbances came out this spring in the open access journal, Collabra. I am going to do a lot more BG work now-- lots of cool questions out there using this method.

As of January 1st, I am President of the Academy of Clinical Psychological Science, a professional organization dedicated to promoting training in clinical science. Check out our website! I hope we'll be rolling out some new interesting new initiatives in the coming months.

Since this is a professional website, I won't say much here about my kids and family life (see the busyness essay!). We have two kids (Margot is 6+ and Mateo is 9+), and I try to spend as much time with them as possible until I lose my patience, then I try to work as much as possible until I miss them. This cycle repeats itself on a regular basis... sometimes daily!

Have a nice week!
