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.

The Study Dude—Waste Time the Smart Way

What time wasters haunt you? I waste an hour every morning reading health articles.  But I convince myself that, when I turn 70, I’ll write the MCAT and enter an undergraduate program in medical science education.  I could become a doctor by the time I turn 80.  So, for the past two days, I’ve poured… Read more »

The Fit Student—Drugs: Love’em?

I saw a video clip of a fellow bedridden from chronic fatigue syndrome.  Surrounding him perched all kinds of medical drugs and an IV.  But I think medical drugs mostly mask symptoms, not cure causes.  And I fear those drugs worsened that fellow’s illness.  Bedridden, he was on the path to death. And I noticed… Read more »

The Study Dude—Building a Super Brain

Do you want a smarter, younger brain?  Well, “you can build your brain just like body builders build their bodies” (Haze, location 169 of 1700, 10%). My Papa is no body builder, but he has a sharp brain at age eighty.  He moves, looks, and thinks more youthfully than most fifty-year-olds.  His doctor calls him… Read more »

The Fit Student—Stop Headaches

Have you woken up with a new ache, pain, or symptom?  If so, block threats and welcome healers. As for new pains, do you get headaches?  Well, I’ve been slapped with brain pains.  Stabbing pains that move from one side of my head to the other.  Before this, I’ve rarely had headaches.  Once when a… Read more »

The Study Dude—Stop Procrastination

Do you need a push to study, to workout, to diet, or to win at work?  Then you need tips on how to stop procrastinating.  When I apply for jobs, employers ask how I manage time.  I don’t impress anyone when I say I color code tasks based on priority.  I need to instead reveal… Read more »

The Fit Student—An End to Obesity

I had a morbidly obese friend.  I was obese at that time too.  Once, when we ate lunch together, I gasped when I saw him eat a whole muffin in one swallow.  I asked, “Don’t you worry about choking?”  We then bonded over tales about our uncontrollable weight. After that day, I didn’t see my… Read more »

The Fit Student—Boost Your Energy!

Some young adults can no longer smile, eat, laugh—or study.  Mitochondria in your cells gives your body energy to do these tasks: “The main function of mitochondria is energy production.  And this energy gets used for almost everything we do, which is why when your mitochondria are damaged, you have less energy to combat disease,… Read more »

The Study Dude—Stay Cool Under Pressure

As students, we can learn to stay cool under pressure.  And no-one teaches how to cope with pressure better than job seekers. I had a job interview with an accounting firm a year ago.  The employer phoned me the next day, offering a low paying job.  I declined, so he hung up in a huff. … Read more »
