Three Simple Ways to Keep STRESS from Ruining Your Metabolism

Three Simple Ways to Keep STRESS from Ruining Your Metabolism

The research is clear — chronic stress damages our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

One of the most interesting lines of study, including research that was released just this week, reveal how feelings of stress, anxiety or depression are linked to inflammation and metabolic changes in the body. To put it simply, those thoughts and feelings trigger reactions in the body that increase inflammation, raise blood sugar, and turn energy into fat. It appears that our high stress culture is making us fatter and sicker!

Five Surprising Benefits of Drumming

Five Surprising Benefits of Drumming

Rhythm is contagious. It isn't hard to imagine why. Our earliest life experiences are linked to the comforting beat of our mother's hearts.

The word rhythm comes from a Greek word, rhythmos, meaning movement and flow - that which creates order, shape and symmetry to our lives. Every culture has its own way to articulate this flow, and to express it in ways that bring the community together. Drum circles are one ancient tradition that is becoming increasingly popular in our modern world.

Six Self-Care Practices to Beat the Blues

Six Self-Care Practices to Beat the Blues

The United States has one of the highest rates of depression in the world.  An estimated 1 in 6 (16.6%) of us are diagnosed with a major depressive episode at some point in out lives and this does not include those of us who suffer from milder cases of the blues that aren't diagnosed. A 2011 study of prescribing habits found antidepressants to be the most highly prescribed class of drugs in the United States. Unfortunately, research has found that antidepressants aren't effective for everyone - especially those with milder symptoms. 

Fortunately there are a number of non-drug approaches to treating and preventing depression. These approaches may be used with or without treatment with medication. Dr. Stephen Illardi, a psychologist at the University of Kansas, has tested a number of them in his practice and has developed a program that he calls Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC). He shares about the six core strategies in his book, The Depression Cure. As you read them, you'll see that many of them are common-sense self-care practices that have many other benefits!
