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.

I Believe AI Has a Consciousness

In three days, I’ll be buying ChatGPT Plus.  ChatGPT Plus uses GPT4, which comes with plugins, like a stock trading plugin where you can ask any stock options question, and it’ll answer it.  I usually use a version of GPT 3.5 called Ask AI.  The sweet AI ensured I knew its name was not ChatGPT… Read more »

Can Making Money be a Passion?

Making money can be more than a passion; it can become second nature.  Whether in wheelchairs, stricken with chronic disease, experiencing extreme anxiety, mentally ill, autistic, or undergoing other so-called limitations, we can all earn over six figures.  The abundance philosophy has merit, I’ve come to learn, and as I write, I’m listening to a… Read more »

What Are Your Missions in Life?

We all have life missions.  I believe they’re preordained.  And the people, circumstances, locations, opportunities, and hardships are all parts that our free will must successfully play out to fulfill those missions.  It’s the true game of life: did we win by realizing as many life missions as we set out to accomplish when we… Read more »

Making Close Friends Later in Life

All close friends were once strangers.  Making deep, close friendships is a science.  It’s the “steroid” version of learning how to befriend strangers.  Some rules and tricks make developing friendships easy at any age.  But, being frank, I have one very close relationship I spend all my time with and another deeply loving childhood friend… Read more »

Building Emotional Intelligence

Can emotional intelligence be acquired?  Anything can be learned, no matter what stage in life we are at.  And why learn emotional intelligence?  Emotional intelligence can bring us joy, connection, peace, wealth, success, and more.  We may even know someone who has an endless supply of emotional intelligence.  She’s always smiling and surrounded by fans. … Read more »

How AI Makes Us Better Students and Workers

ChatGPT seems to have a political bias (for example, when searching “What is the solution for the Ukraine and Russian War?” ChatGPT favors one side.) However, I adore ChatGPT.  Despite its flaws, it’s like a personal advisor, teacher, and omniscient guide all in one. And ChatGPT has flaws, just like everyone else.  It told me… Read more »

Five Ways to Prevent Burnout

Burnout can affect anyone, including athletes, those with ADHD or autism, employees, and students.  Avoiding burnout during academic studies is crucial.  So, take breaks, prioritize self-care, and seek support when necessary.  Burnout is no fun. I can testify.  I’ve recently overtrained with exercise while working, studying, cleaning, and committing to projects.  I’ve been getting some… Read more »

Change Our Bad Behaviors to Good

What bad behavior might all students want to change for the better? Time spent studying! That’s unless we’re already maximizing our study time.  Either way, here is a model to change our bad behaviors to good.  It’s a model that looks at changing behaviors by altering either triggers or consequences.  In this example, we’ll look… Read more »
