Getting a Healthy Friendship

I’ve been having issues with my friend for the past few days. I recently went to go visit him and when I came back he told me that he didn’t see us as friends anymore. He has been completely short towards me for the past few days and I really want to improve myself and be a better friend to him. We started off as internet friends in 2016 and started seeing each other in person last year. I would do anything to get my friendship back to the way it was where we are so close and having fun together.

A. You might ask him to explain why he no longer wants to be friends. It’s odd that you had been friends and then he no longer wants a relationship. The obvious question is what’s changed?

All you can do is ask for more information but if he no longer wants to be friends, you should respect his decision. You can’t force people to do anything they don’t want to do.

You stated in your letter that you “really want to improve yourself and be a better friend to him” but it’s not clear that you are the problem. It might be you but it might not be your fault. Something in his life may have changed. There could’ve been a miscommunication. You need more information. Once you know more, then you’ll better know what to do.

Please take care and write again if you have additional information and want more help.

Working Remotely Is Not Necessarily Stress-Free

Many believe that working from home or remotely can foster freedom and stress-free job satisfaction, and that everyone wants  more work autonomy.A new study from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, says “Not so fast.”In the study, researchers examined the impact of remote work on employee well-being. Their findings suggest that a variety of factors can undermine or accent the employee benefits of working off-site.Accordingly, researchers developed new strategies to help managers provide remote-work opportunities that are valuable to the employee and the company.“Any organization, regardless of the extent to which people work remotely, needs to consider well-being of their employees as they implement more flexible working practices,” the researchers wrote.The study appears in the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology.In the review, a total of 403 working adults were surveyed for the two studies that made up the research, said lead author Sara Perry, Ph.D.Researchers meas…

Americans Are Getting A Little More Sleep

A new survey published in the journal Sleep finds that, on average, Americans are slowly but surely getting more shut-eye, even if it’s just a few minutes each week. The findings show that, overall, people seem to be turning in a little earlier and spending less time watching TV or reading just before bed.The research, based on the American Time Use Survey (ATUS), found that daily sleep duration increased by 1.4 minutes on weekdays and 0.8 minutes on weekends each year.At first glance, this may not seem like much progress. However, over the 14-year period it translates to 17.3 minutes more sleep each night, or 4.4 full days more sleep each year. Overall, these numbers amount to an extra 7.5 hours of sleep each year over the 14-year period. The survey involved 181,335 respondents aged 15 and older between 2003 and 2016.The study, conducted by researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, is the first to show that sleep duration has increased among se…
