I'm all about helping you age-proof your body and mind — sharing the secrets to a long life that's filled with purpose and joy, no matter what challenges life throws your way.
But I realize that those challenges can get pretty overwhelming. I see patients all the time who struggle with stressors most Americans didn't even think about a few years ago. Stuff like information overload, being "on" 24/7, and chronic financial insecurity. Add those woes to eternal human challenges like caring for loved ones, finding meaning, and dealing with change and loss, and it's no wonder we're being diagnosed with anxiety and depression in record numbers.
Do you believe in “suddenly?”
This has been one of the most unbelievable weeks of my life, and I would love to share with you how things “suddenly” happened.
I’ve said a number of times, when you are on the right path, the puzzle pieces start fitting together. It’s against natural law for them not to. The trick to getting to this point is not giving up. No matter what. Now, while it’s one thing to believe this tenet, it’s a whole other thing to experience it.
Ah, bedtime. Time to slip on our jammies, curl up with a good book, send a few last texts to our friends, and then turn out the lights. And what's the last thing most of us do? We plug our electronic devices into their chargers on the nightstand so we can grab them first thing in the morning.
That's exactly what I used to do. But now, I make my phone and my tablet sleep in another room.
No, we didn't break up. I still love them dearly, and we'll always be together. (Well, at least until the next models come out.) But I recently found out that in the sack, our relationship just wasn't healthy.
