What To Feed A Child Athlete

It’s back-to-school time in NY and that means that many children and their parents are gearing up for school sports. My cousin, being one of these parents, recently texted me to ask about hydration for her 8 year old son who plays baseball in the Florida heat. She said that many of the other parents were sending sports drinks to practice with their kids, and she wasn’t sure that this was appropriate.

Because I Could Not Accept my 'Chemical Imbalance' as an Unalterable Part of Who I Was, I Healed Myself of Depression

I feel a lot of apprehension around the concept of identity… specifically the idea that identity is static: that you are who you are, and that’s it. It just doesn't make sense to me. I've never been able to accept that sort of dreary finality. I was diagnosed with Depression when I was in grade 7.I started counselling and was put on anti-depressants for almost all of Junior High and High School. ...more
