Is your sleep suffering? Can't sleep at all? Let’s talk about sleep, sleep hygiene, and ways to improve it. Quality sleep is essential to feeling well and chronic lack of sleep can have medical consequences and make it hard to recover from an illness like depression. We feel lousy when we have a lack of sleep!
I was taught that on average a person remembers to take their medication 70% of the time. That is a lot of missed medication! Remembering to take medicine can be a challenge but there are helpful and easy ways to remember to take it more frequently.
As cliche as New Year’s resolutions sound, they are an important reminder to stop and take the time to reassess our dreams and life goals. If we are feeling stuck in life, or even uninspired, we have the opportunity to be creative and infuse passion back into our journey. You can create your future one step at a time to live the life you love.
By now you have probably given up on your new year's resolution to exercise more and lose weight. But, there is some good news.
New Year’s 2019 has come and gone, which means some poor souls had a massive amount of terribly soggy confetti to clean up in Times Square; and that US News & World Reportis out with rankings of the best diets for the upcoming year. My condolences to the confetti cleaners, happy New Year wishes to all, and now- let’s talk about those diets.
Truth be told, I read my daughters texts. I don’t feel great about it but 7th-graders aren’t “oversharers” (with their parents) and I want to have an idea of what is going on. Her texts were my source of learning about the drug called Lean. It wasn’t at a conference or in one of my 4,000 medical magazines that seem to come daily; it was embedded in a text to a friend about what their respective schools were like. She mentioned there were lots of kids who use Juul and some who use the Lean drug. What? Huh? Am I the last to know this is a thing? What is the drug Lean??!!
In this last year, people have started to reach out to me for help quitting Juul. I’ve been asked “Do you know how to treat Juul addiction?” as if it is some fancy and obscure entity rather than simply one of many electronic nicotine delivery systems. Even if people don’t quite understand what is Juul they know they are having a terrible time trying to stop using it. Juul’s ability to cause nicotine addiction isn’t special or is it? Let’s talk about what you need to know about Juul.
