Post-Election Grief Is Real; Here's What You Can Do About It
Many people in this country today are in mourning and it’s very real. I’ve been a therapist specializing in grief for a decade and in that time I’ve seen our country grieve together on many occasions. But none so pronounced as this. Last night as I sat watching the returns with friends, my phone began pinging with texts and emails from my clients. “I understand grief on a new level,” one read. Another said he felt personally responsible for the outcome. Yet a third said her sadness over the election results was reigniting the grief over the loss of her mother. If you are feeling similarly you are not alone. Loss ...

5 Signs You’ve 'Gotten Over' Your Child’s Premature Birth and Forgiven Yourself
For me, it seemed like I was working toward an impossible goal. I knew I had to heal. I knew I had to “get over” my life-threatening pregnancy and my daughter’s premature birth and forgive myself. The truth is that you never really “get over” your baby’s premature birth ― you just learn to move on from it. This was a requirement; not just for me to move past it, but so that my family could move on despite our setbacks. The need to move on and enjoy life does not accurately explain what I really mean. What I really mean is that I needed to give myself permission to enjoy life again. For...

It's All Your Fault
Recently I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts: The Tim Ferriss Show, he referenced a short essay called "It's Always Your Fault" written by his guest David Heinemeier Hansson. The essay refers to business systems and the question it asks is "How are you complicit in creating the conditions you say you don't want?". It talks about being accountable, about situations being a feedback loop and that you can take action and have the control to change. As a fitness instructor, I immediately thought of how this relates to health and fitness. Our daily actions have consequences that affect our physical and emotional we...

This Woman Shuts Down Judgmental Gym Goers In One Epic Post
People go to the gym for many, many reasons.

The Cure for Cancer Is Data — Mountains Of Data
By Mark Warren for WIRED. A few years ago Eric Schadt met a woman who had cancer. It was an aggressive form of colon cancer that had come on quickly and metastasized to her liver. She was a young war widow from Mississippi, the mother of two girls she was raising alone, and she had only the health care that her husband’s death benefits afforded her — an overburdened oncologist at a military hospital, the lowest rung on the health care ladder. The polar opposite of cutting-edge medicine. To walk into such a facility with stage 4 metastatic disease is to walk back in time to the world of the unmapped human geno...

Mom's Viral Post Explains Why Son Isn't 'Too Manly' To Cook And Clean
A Michigan mom’s viral Facebook post is making a case for teaching little boys to cook and clean.  Earlier this month, Nikkole Paulun posted photos of her 6-year-old son, Lyle, helping with chores like laundry, dishes and cooking at home. In the caption for the photo, Paulun explained that she teaches Lyle to cook and do chores “because household work isn’t just for women.” The mom listed many other reasons why she wants her son to learn these skills: “Because one day he might be a single man, living on his own, who will actually know how to do laundry and not eat take out every nig...

The Surprising Way Post-Its Changed How I Eat
Photo courtesy of Kelsey Miller. There's an old diet trick -- you might have seen it in movies -- where you cover the refrigerator in sticky notes, reminding you that "Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels!" and "A moment on the lips, forever on the hips!" or simply, "Do NOT open this!" Sometimes you might amplify these helpful hints with photos of either very fat people or very thin people, depending on which makes you feel worse about yourself. Basically, you taught your fridge to fat-shame you. I tried it, obviously. And it was super effective at making me feel like a piece of shit every time I opened the fridge....

Here's What Happens When Teenagers Talk Openly About Mental Health
Ross Szabo was the kind of high school senior that college admissions officers dreamed about. He played varsity basketball, volunteered for the Special Olympics and Students Against Drunk Driving, and was elected student body president. He was also living with bipolar disorder, a diagnosis he'd received two years earlier. He told no one about his inner struggle. He felt so alone that he began to think about nothing except ending his own life. In January, he attempted suicide. He was hospitalized for two weeks. "I had the classic symptoms: the broken knuckles, the hallucinations, the sleepless nights," he says. "I went in...

I Accidentally Had Two Tampons In. What Should I Do?
(Photo: Sporrer/Rupp/Getty Images/Cultura RF) By Susan Rinkunas I took out my tampon only to discover I had a second one in the whole time. Am I going to get TSS now? First, take a deep breath. Yes, it's disturbing to realize you've been harboring a forgotten guest, but it's not as unhealthy as you might think. Depending on how often you change them, it's possible that your tampon has only been in there for a couple of hours. And even if you know for sure that you've exceeded the eight hours recommended on the box, accidentally wearing one for longer than that doesn't automatically mean you're going to get toxic shock s...

New 'Inside Edition' Video Shows Some Hotels Don't Wash Sheets Between Guestss
When you check into a hotel, it seems fair to expect freshly-laundered sheets on the bed. But new evidence suggests those fluffy puffs of heaven may not be as clean as you believe. In the above video, reporters from “Inside Edition” checked into a Residence Inn in New York City. They spray the bed sheets with invisible paint before checking out, then check in again the next day under a new name. When they scan the bed, the paint is still there.

The Powerful Response To East Liverpool's #OtherSideOfAddiction Facebook Post
Imagery is powerful. On Friday, the East Liverpool Police Department posted pictures to their Facebook account of two parents on the side of the road, overdosed with a child in the car. Not surprisingly, the images went viral. The police chief who posted the photo stated that he “needed people to get upset.” While the images accurately depicted the horror of addiction, it did nothing to move us closer to a solution.

Technology: Modern Help for the Aging Mind
McLean Hospital Guest Blogger Ipsit Vahia, MD Digital technology isn't just a domain for younger generations. It also has amazing potential for activating the mind and improving the quality of life in older adults. How do older adults use technology? A common misconception is that older adults are technophobic. One reason behind this thinking may be older people's relative lack of exposure to technology. Whereas technology is a compulsory part of life for most school-age children and working adults, using technology is largely voluntary for older adults. Another reason may be an unclear understanding about how older ad...

A Quick Lesson On What Trigger Warnings Actually Do
The University of Chicago sent a welcome letter to incoming freshmen, posted online Wednesday, where they made it abundantly clear that they do not support “trigger warnings” or “safe spaces” in classes or on campus. In other words, students who may be susceptible to mental health issues, like post-traumatic stress disorder or panic disorders, are underserving of a warning that a lecture or guest speaker may aggravate those issues or traumatic experiences. And just below a promise of inclusivity, respect and diversity, the university also stated that it would not provide zones on campus for students...

10 Tips for Surviving a Whole30
by guest blogger Amanda Harding, writer and blogger At the risk of sounding totally cliché, Whole30 is more than just a diet--it's a lifestyle. I know, I know, that sounds really cheesy (which is ironic, because you can't eat cheese when you're doing a Whole30). But seriously... I found out about Whole30 while I was on the quest to lose that stubborn baby weight.

It's Time To Retire The Rape Test Kit Backlog
Like many people, I was shocked and outraged over the lax punishment handed down to a young man who attempted to rape an unconscious peer of his at Stanford University last year. That case, and the judge's inexplicable decision to impose a too-lenient sentence, have punctuated once again how painful it can be for victims of rape to get the justice they deserve. S. shaming, blaming the victim and falling back on straw-man arguments are nothing new, and television police procedurals have done a good (if not very accurate) job of showing what happens when the victim gets put on trial instead of the accused.

Why Do Teens Cut and What Can Parents Do To Help?
McLean Hospital Guest Blogger Michael R.

The age of onset often occurs in early adolescence, between the ages of 11 and 14. While self-harm is of serious concern for parents, families, and teachers, it's important to know that when the right approach and treatment is provided in a timely manner, this behavior is highly treatable. But kids who self-harm need treatment right away. Giving in to pleas for more time and delayin...

by guest blogger Cassidy Randall, marketing director of MADE SAFE If you're going to choose one room in your house to detox, start with where you sleep.

Brain Geography: Map Details Newly Identified Regions of the Mind
McLean Hospital Guest Blogger Bill Carlezon, PhD The human brain is a world unto itself and still holds great potential for discovery. When we describe its structure and functionality, we often refer to the left and right hemispheres and the four lobes--frontal, temporal, occipital, and parietal. There are, however, many smaller, distinct regions within our mind, each with its own specialization. History of Brain Mapping Up to this point, mapping the brain has largely been a slow process.
