Tony Robbins, aka my boyfriend, reckons that there are six basic human needs that drive absolutely everything we do. We all need to feel important, special, unique, or needed – some of us get a feeling of significance from our work, some do it by having a flash car or by getting a thousand Twitter followers.
We all need love but many of us are terrified of it and settle for connection, through our romantic relationships, friendships, our pets, walking through nature.

Huge thank you for all the clever, honest and wise comments to my last post which asked does Happiness = Marriage + Kids? Maybe find and talk to a good range of people who have done all different things (eg older and childless, in thirties and single, with children, thought having them but didn’t, and so on). I bet some will have regrets but most of them will have just made the most of life and are happy.

And weirdly that seems to be happening. A friend of a friend asked for my number in the pub on Friday night and earlier last week I got asked out by a guy on the tube. While some of the guys knew about my dating month, others didn’t, including the Mad Scientist.

Last Thursday morning I stood in front of a boardroom of business people and told them I needed a boyfriend. My friend Josh had invited me to this networking business breakfast he goes to, saying I might get some copywriting work out of it.

Last night I was supposed to have a date with Alistair, the Scottish guy who works for the NHS.
His profile said that he ‘liked to make sweeping assumptions about people based on their profile pics’.

Why Is This Important?Your attire affects your psychology in some pretty major ways.Long Story ShortA report has revealed that wearing a suit can affect the way that we think.
Did you ever start reading a book, and you just didn't want to stop, you wanted to finish it the same day?
I have a son, and as a responsible mum of course I had to think of his future before I could think of my dreams.
I know lots of kids dream like this, but I really wanted to help him so I started to search for a place where he could get a good education and at the same time maybe make his dream reality. Guest Work is the Sciblogs guest blog where we run submissions from a wide range of contributors.
The Dutch famine of 1944 was a terrible time for many in the Netherlands – with around 4.5m people affected and reliant on soup kitchens after food supplies were stopped from getting into the area by German blockades. The dietary intake of people in affected areas was reduced from a healthy 2000 calories a day to a measly 580 – a quarter of the “normal” food intake.

But then something strange happened: their children’s children had the same low birth weight, despite their mother’s “normal” food and calorie intake. On top of this, daughters of women exposed to the Dutch famine were twice as likely to develop schizophrenia than the usually calculated risk.
Because it is not just our genes and DNA which determines our health, but also environmental factors such as diet, stresses, and lifestyle choices – just like in the Netherlands.
These environmental conditions, alongside the life experiences of our parents, grandparents, and even our great-grandparents, have been shown to flip “stop” and “go” signals which regulate pretty much every process taking place in our cells.
Epigenetics takes the age-old question of “nature vs nurture” to a whole new level of scientific interest. What we do know, though, is that the environment and our nutritional intake plays a crucial role in affecting changes to our DNA – which has been demonstrated by the effects of the Dutch famine. The genes affected are ones that are important in processing nutrients and are associated with diseases such as diabetes or are implicated in mental health conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorders.
Studies on identical twins show how the environment and trauma can change these epigenetic flags. Recently, studies using mice, rats, fruit flies and worms have also shown that trauma and stress can affect these epigenetic flags which then get passed on to the next generation, and then on to the next. We know that if a female rat takes good care of her offspring, for example, then the pups are able to cope better with stress compared to rat pups that were ignored and had high levels of stress. Similarly, male mice who experience stress early in their lives pass this on, even to their grand pups – which are more likely to show symptoms of anxiety and depression, even if they were looked after well and grew up in a nurturing environment. Studies in humans are difficult to control as generally we do not have a reference value for epigenetic markers before a trauma or stress, so we cannot make easy comparisons.
Their children have reported experiencing depression, anxiety and poor coping mechanisms in stressful situations. We potentially can affect our epigenetics by living a healthy lifestyle and providing our body with the necessary building blocks for these epigenetic flags.
Recent research also shows that drugs can remove negative epigenetic marks and remove “stop” signals – which has been shown to allow changed genes present in cancer, Alzheimer’s or diabetes to go back to their original state. So while we may still be some way off fully understanding the role epigenetics plays in the “nature vs nurture” debate, one thing is clear: it’s not simply our genes that make us.
To be blunter, it’s “woo” – the sort of stuff Deepak Chopra and similar “new age” quasi-religious promoters sell.
There is a memory in the sense that our cells remember what kind of cell they are as the divide.
The chemical modifications to DNA in epigenetics can be removed, and are in each new generation. There is a lot of confusion about epigenetics, and misuse of the term, because it’s used in several ways, some of them wrong-headedly.
Sciblogs is the biggest blog network of scientists in New Zealand, an online forum for discussion of everything from clinical health to climate change. Led by brilliant readers, thinkers and teachers, these courses enable you to take a break for a day and immerse yourself in a good book. You can get significance by having more or bigger problems than anybody else (moi) and criminals get it by the attention they get for their crimes. As a result I’m tired most of the time, have put on a stone and a bit in weight, and my face looks like it belongs on the Pillsbury Dough Boy. It wouldn’t make me feel good to have someone talking in public about my hair, my clothes, my job, my money.
This friend (the one I’m to be set up with) is 37, an artist and musician and works in a coffee shop.
He guessed that I was Irish, liked swing dancing and vintage clothes. I guessed that he was Scottish. But luckily my son Mert had a dream too -- he wanted to play professional basketball, and Istanbul was really not the right place to do it.

It was not an easy process, I had to leave all my family and friends behind, my career too. I wasn't expecting to hear back, but I was so happy when I got the most wonderful, personal reply from him.
As many as 22,000 people were thought to have died, and those who survived would find it extremely difficult to ever fully recover. Unsurprisingly, without a balanced diet, children born to mothers who were pregnant during the famine showed a much lower than average birth weight.
We also know “bad genes” can lead to us having a higher chance of developing a particular disease if our parents are carriers. These signals can then cause changes on top of the inherited DNA molecules which can determine our well-being – hence the lower birth weight of babies only distantly related to the famine.
But it is a controversial field of study with wide-reaching implications which could change everything we thought we knew about genetic inheritance. The famine has shown how changes in epigenetic markers – the “stop” and “go” signals – are inherited, from parent to offspring and to their offspring in turn. While the siblings were genetically identical, their identical epigenetics changed over time – essentially showing how environmental factors can alter genes which are linked to depression, anxiety and obesity.
In this instance, the removal of “stop” signals on a specific gene seems to be linked to happier offspring. Similarly, children and grandchildren of Holocaust victims often have mental health issues. We aren’t simply living at the mercy of our ancestors’ past lives because we do know that at least some of the epigenetic marks are reversible. So next time you’re feeling stressed or angry, or thinking about grabbing another takeaway pizza on the way home, think of your future grandchildren. Our Scibloggers are either practising scientists or have been writing on science-related issues for some time. I walked on fire, danced around like a lunatic with 7,500 other people and fell heart-stoppingly in love with the 6ft7 lantern jawed self-irmprovement God.
It is really really awful that my first thought is that I can’t face going out with a broke Peter Pan? That leaves Mark Zuckerberg's jeans and hoody approach looking rather suspect.Researchers at California State University, Northridge, said that suit-wearers became better at abstract thinking and might be better protected against impulse purchases too. But while scientists can look for those faulty or changed genes, over the last decade we have learned this is not the whole story. They can also be changed as cells grow to the different cell types, or respond to environmental signals. They tested two groups of people for the study, with one group told to wear a suit and one group given no sartorial instructions. I saw his movie, re-watched it a few times, and then I started to learn about his life story and his many books. The participants were then given various cognitive tests."Putting on formal clothes makes us feel powerful, and that changes the basic way we see the world, Abraham Rutchick, one of the report authors, told the Atlantic.
I read all of his books, but one of them, Sacred Journey Of The Peaceful Warrior, affected me very much. Those who were dressed formally appeared to be better at grasping the big picture in situations and thinking beyond smaller, less important details.Those who dressed casually used a more 'concrete' approach to problems, and that can have an impact at work, even if you regularly wear a suit to the office. It describes his experience with a mystical sage called Mama Chia on the Hawaiian island of Molokai.
