Live better while sleeping!

This time of year I like to practice the fine art of hibernation. It’s cold outside, the sun hides for half the day and the blankets are plentiful. I also can’t function at all on less than 7 hours sleep. I’ve tried and it’s not pretty.This is one of the most obvious methods of strong self care and probably one of the most easily ignored. We make great (or not so great) excuses for not getting our shut eye. We have too much to do, we surf the net for two hours because its there, or we don’t want to miss a good show....more

On Losses And Gains...

I was trying to find the right way to express myself this morning and realized I couldn't call up the right words. It wasn't that I don't know them, it's that my memory seems to be fuzzy.

Or, it could be that pesky memory thing again. ...more

For those of you who have ever wondered, would Darwin take Xanax? - and I know that you're out there - there's finally an answer: no, because depression is a sign of strong evolutionary adaptation. Or something. Maybe.According to a report discussed this week in Newsweek, depression may be an "adaptation" in human beings - and, oddly, rats - that provides for selection of stronger, fitter humans:...more

HAPPINESS IS A SKELETON - THE OSTEO BATTLE RAGES - BY Dr. Mom

As a teen I was always proud to say - I don't drink milk.  Diet Coke was was drink of choice.  Every calorie was viewed by me as an investment on my backside - one that I didn't need because I was bored looking like Jennifer Lopez at 30. I was looking backward when I should've been looking forward. To my horror, I discovered at 50, that peak bone mass is achieved by age 16 for women and that the critical time to do that bodybuilding was during puberty when I was conserving calories for gravy and fries.  ...more
