Drive On: Study finds the worst backseat drivers
Dr. Greer quoted on USA Today
On the road, other drivers have plenty of bad habits that irritate and distract us, but what about those coming from inside the car? Among the most annoying is “advice” from other passengers, and according to an Insurance.com study, spouses make the worst backseat drivers.

Projecting Your Husband: Visualization Techniques that Can Lead You to Love
I was first introduced to visualization when I was eight years old. I saw my best friend’s teenage sister, Tammy, sitting on the floor, legs crossed, meditating in the middle of her bedroom. When I asked Tammy what she was doing, she said in a serious, soft-spoken voice, “I’m focusing on what my husband will look like.” This young teenage girl was convinced that, if she concentrated on him once a week, it would bring love into her life and give her the future she desired.
