Start Meditating

By: | Tags: , , , , , , ,

Meditation can be intimidating largely because there is confusion regarding what meditation really is. A more accurate question to start with is actually what meditation isn’t. There really are not strict limits on the practice of meditation and it certainly isn’t limited to sitting cross-legged on the floor, perfectly at peace. However, if that is the form of meditation that works for you, then have at it! See how it can be confusing? Meditation is different for everyone depending on your lifestyle, your preferred way of sitting, lying down, relaxing […]

Happy New Year! The kids are back in school after break, life has resumed post-holiday and we are all back to our normal routines. Except… maybe not. Maybe you’re having a hard time adjusting back to your real schedule of morning chaos and trying to make healthy, balanced choices that don’t take more than a few minutes. Healthy living requires planning and consistency; there is a reason that fast food thrives on convenience and impulse decisions. If you put the right structure in place for a healthier lifestyle, choices to […]

The Rest is Up to You

By: | Tags: , , , , , , ,

With Christmas just two days away and the New Year around the corner, we find ourselves in the familiarly strange “holiday” week. Most of us love this time of year – hours spent with family, plenty of great food and social events, gift-giving and cozy nights by the fire, you name it. We should all cherish every minute of these enjoyable activities. However, this week also comes with some stress. Whether we are aware of it or not, constant cycles of planning, cleaning, traveling, mingling, eating, drinking, repeat take their […]

It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving, we just weathered a snow storm, and it’s the second day of December. Most of us likely had somewhat of a stressful (even if it was the good kind!) weekend, and we are busy to plan for the next holiday (Christmas — only a few weeks away). For many individuals, the stress surrounding the holiday season and the start of winter only multiplies when they consider their own health goals or their weight gain / loss in general. It seems that everywhere we look there […]

Functional Fitness to Improve Daily Life

By: | Tags: , , , ,

Are you intimidated by the endless array of exercise equipment, machines, gadgets, cables and tools in the gym? You are not alone. While many of those prove very useful to just about everyone, the more advanced equipment requires assistance from a trained professional and often works by targeting very specific muscle groups, not full-body movements. For many of my patients, they look to fitness as a way of improving their daily lives. Hauling groceries to and from the car, shoveling snow off the walkway several times per year, raking leaves, […]

Exercise Improves Memory

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Exercise is great for us in a variety of ways. We reduce the odds of developing heart disease, reduce the chances of a stroke, help prevent depression, lower blood pressure, and even keep diabetes at bay. It also makes us feel and look better. With these impressive results, it’s no surprise exercise benefits another vital organ: the brain. Thanks to a study done at the University of British Columbia, “researchers found that regular aerobic exercise, the kind that gets your heart and your sweat glands pumping, appears to boost the […]

Intuitive Eating

By: | Tags: , , , , , , ,

I talk with patients on a daily basis about their relationships with food. Many of you probably read that sentence and found it comical, as if we really have a “relationship” with food. While it’s funny to think about, it actually could not be more true. Eating is a necessity, a basic need, so naturally we structure our days (if not hours, minutes) around the very act of eating. Whipping up a quick breakfast, meal prepping our lunches, planning our “30 minute or less” dinners and dining with friends are […]

Drink this, not that! The new dangers of sugary drinks

By: | Tags:

Drinks that are high in sugar (think soda, lemonade, artificially flavored fruit juice like fruit punch, and even some sports drinks) are already linked to weight gain, increased risk for diabetes, heart disease and stroke. But that’s not all: a Harvard study from March 2019 recently linked sugar-sweetened beverages to an early death. Researchers conducted two large studies of more than 110,000 men and women “who responded to questionnaires about their lifestyle and health for about three decades or longer.” The results were simple but startling: the more sugary drinks […]

The Unexpected Benefits of Human Touch

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Thanks to the social media craze, one would think we are all closer than ever before. While that could certainly be true in some aspects, one important element is lacking when it comes to all relationships: human touch. What’s the big deal? Well, touch stimulates the vagus nerve which runs through our entire body, and its main purpose is to slow our nervous systems. According to Tiffany Field, Ph.D., the director of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, when the vagus nerve is […]
