In an age where everyone is connected at all times, and when companies like Google are coming out with devices to make us even more connected, the idea of an Internet addiction may seem ridiculous. Make no mistake, even in a world where everyone has a smartphone surgically attached to their hands, it is possible to cross the line from normal use to addiction. So how can you tell if you have a healthy love for technology, or if you have an addiction?

If mounting bills, childcare, work deadlines, school, household chores, relationships and other day-to-day stressors have you frazzled, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans are dealing with some form of stress every day, and as researchers continue to study and release findings on the negative health impacts caused by long-term, chronic stress — including depression, anxiety, heart disease, sleep disorders, weight gain, digestive issues and cognitive malfunction — it is becoming...

The economy imploded in 2008, and with it went the job market. By the end of that year, the unemployment rate was over 8 percent and thousands of people were out of work. As of January 2014, the unemployment rate has dropped to 6.6 percent, but there are still thousands without jobs; many of whom have been unemployed for more than a year.
