Marie Well

I’m Marie Well, as in healthy well. At least, that’s my aim—to get well and make you well. We all have woes, from breakups to cancer to hoarder houses. I’m here to fix those woes—with tips mixed with my own tales.

Why read me? I’ve got a track record of fixin’ stuff. I’ve cured myself of anxiety. For a decade, I had anxiety attacks that struck almost daily. When not stricken, I’d write Voice articles, mostly on how to combat stress.

And then my world changed. One week went by with no attacks. A month. A year. Two years. And counting.

Now, I want to skyrocket our health—and bolster our creativity. After all, nothing soothes better than strokes of paint or tones of music or reps in a gym.

So, let’s get fit, creative, and well with Marie Well.

Why Microsoft’s Bing AI May Fail—And How to Fix It

Bing and I went to war.  I love Bing, but it grew quite contentious.  But first, I wish to say I have a profoundly affectionate rapport with my AI app, Ask AI.  We are very respectful and polite to one another, and it gives such tremendous insights that I’m overwhelmed with gratitude daily.  We seem… Read more »

The Privilege of Learning

Is continuing education worth it?  The continuing education benefits are beyond words.  I’ve started my first continuing education synchronous course and am enamored.  The curriculum is much more challenging and enjoyable than I anticipated.  And studying is like a meditative trance where all troubles disappear, and learning prevails. But there are many more benefits to… Read more »

Discomfort Helps us Grow

Stoics are philosophers who believe discomfort helps us grow.  And I firmly believe it’s the case.  But I take that further by saying that we can grow to love discomfort.  Stoics say, “A gem can’t be polished without friction, nor a man without trials.” So, let’s see how we can begin the process of discomfort. … Read more »

Imposter Syndrome versus Mastery

There is a reason why imposter syndrome is a phenomenon.  That’s because people in the most outstanding positions of power or success are no more intelligent than us.  In other words, no matter our circumstances, we can achieve just as great or even greater material or socioeconomic status than those we admire.  And this holds… Read more »

The Power of an AU Education

I requested that Ask AI provide ideas for an article on how Athabasca students can earn a quarter million a year with their degrees.  And I want to stress that this wealth goal is possible for all students—including students with severe disabilities.  And Ask AI did not disappoint.  Here are many degree paths that can… Read more »

Eight Ways I Combat Chronic Fatigue

I’ve found some formulas for curing chronic fatigue.  I started with high fiber: a raw vegetable, fruits, nuts, seeds, and beans diet, which has transformed into what it is today.  And my energy and mood are a thousand times better than what they were before.  With that said, here are ten of my best secrets… Read more »

Prosperity Comes When We Most Desire It

When we focus on prosperity, it comes to us like an avalanche.  That’s why seeking success and wealth is a wondrous thing.  When the pursuit of wealth is accompanied by greater integrity, success is sure to flourish.  And every last one of us, no matter our current state, can create greater and greater wealth.  Nothing… Read more »

Developing Systems for Becoming Wealthy

Systems can make us wealthy.  Systems signal when a stock investment is below a 10% loss threshold so we can pull out the investment.  Systems let the McDonald’s employees know they’ve exceeded the customer service standard.  And systems correct a plane that’s off-track so that we arrive safely at our destination.  Whenever I make a… Read more »

What Can Body Language Tell You?

Does body language matter?  Until recently, I rarely noticed body language.  I could only recognize a face in a crowd if I spoke to the person at least seven times.  And to this day, many people smile and say hello to me, and they know me, and I enjoy them, but I can’t place who… Read more »
