Mindful Practices For Surviving SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) or How To Cope With The Winter Blues-January 2015

Mindful Practices for Surviving SAD is an eight week program that explores the self and how it relates to the winter season. The natural world rests during winter while it rejuvenates for spring, the days darker and shorter to conserve the energy needed for the rest of the year. But while these are necessary attributes of the winter season, they cause side effects in many people.

Each session will build on the previous one, with the intention of reconnecting to ourselves and this season of life. Discover the purpose of winter in your own life, and learn how you can thrive during it. We’ll be teaching breathing techniques, affirmations, guided meditations, and gentle yoga movements to help offset the side effects of these dark winter days. You’ll even learn to find comfort throughout the stillness of the season.

Topics Will Include:
Motivation                 Overcoming Anxiety              Depression & Mood
Inner Listening          Accessing Energy                 Cultivating Contentment

  • Male Menopause: Is It Real?

    Short answer: Yes, but don’t hope for any quick fixes—that’s pharmaceutical industry-think. Another way to view male menopause: Sure, a ball will bounce, just not as high over time. I get asked about male menopause all the time, almost always by women (who, admittedly, represent the majority of my patients) and only rarely by my male patients who, for the most part, don’t seem to Read More

  • How To Not Gain Weight

    Please note this Health Tip will not tell you how to lose weight. If you want to browse the offerings on that topic, go to amazon and search for diet books. Once our largest bookstore attempted to track the numbers, but when they surpassed 95,000 it apparently gave up and now tell us that the number is “over 60,000.” If we publish this many diet Read More

  • Lyme Disease: A Biological Weapon Gone Awry

    Prepare yourself for a genuinely frightening Health Tip. I bought Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons, by investigative reporter Kris Newby, this past Saturday at 10 am and finished it at 8 pm. It reads more like a thriller than non-fiction and is chilling in its implications. First, some background: The tickborne infectious illness Lyme disease was first reported in 1975 Read More
