"Live as if your were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. You must learn to be still in the midst of activity and be vibrantly alive in repose."

This website also hopes to provide information on common daily stressors, mental disorders, and tips for self-improvement.

How It All Started

This website is designed, coded and written by me, Alejandro A. LeMon.

When I decided to build a site in the field of psychology, I didn't realize how time consuming it was going to be. I decided to learn all of the basic coding to build a site that I felt was truly mine. This alone took me 3 months, and completion of my website took me about 9 more months.

This site went public on May 27th, 2011.

I still have more to work on but feel free to browse through, and if you have any suggestions or feedback, please don't hesitate to contact me or leave me a message.


HONcode Certification

On May 16, 2012, Psychology One received the prestigious HONcode certification from the Health ON the Net (HON) Foundation based in Geneva, Switzerland.
