  1. 9 Self-Care Tips to Counter Election Fatigue

    9 Self-Care Tips to Counter Election Fatigue

    With just two weeks until the conclusion of an election season that’s seen some of the most divisive, mean-spirited, and disturbing rhetoric in recent memory, it’s probably safe to say that most of us are feeling pretty battered and exhausted — not to mention deeply sorrowful over the ugly, coarsened flavor of our public discourse.

  2. Got COVID Or The Flu? There’s Guided Imagery For You

    Got COVID Or The Flu? There’s Guided Imagery For You

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again (and again, and again...): Dr. Emmett Miller’s imagery for Resisting & Preventing Viral Infection is ideal for anyone looking to support their immune system, the better to fight off acquiring an infection, and to remain a robust, protective, and vigilant army against any outside invaders seeking to do harm.

  3. The Universal Stages of Disaster, And Where We Are Now

    The Universal Stages of Disaster, And Where We Are Now

    Several weeks ago, I was catching up with a colleague, the dedicated Kate Siegrist, B.S., M.Sc, Chief Nursing Officer of the Nurse-Family Partnership in Denver, Colorado. We were discussing changes to a streaming page we built for NFP to help relieve stress for the hundreds of nurses who do life changing work in inner cities all over the US. (They have many super powers, but still can use some winding-down skills at the end of the day.)

    Kate mentioned a terrific graph she had seen in a presentation, one that maps out the phases of, really, any disaster, but works especially well for this pandemic.

    Check it out — it’s really useful for perspective.

  4. N.O.W. Hear This — Literally! (I’ll Show Myself Out…)

    N.O.W. Hear This — Literally! (I’ll Show Myself Out…)

    At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I hope you’ll indulge me once again as I extol the virtues of the N.O.W. Tone Therapy System — the “Pucks of Peace,” as they’ve often been called. These magnificent little gizmos are about the size of a hockey puck (hence the name) and work in sync with each other to produce reverberating tones with such clarity and resonance as to, in just three minutes, induce a peaceful and meditative state of mind.

    PAINWeek 2020: Shingles, The Coronavirus, And 3 Suggestions

    As PAINWeek kicks off its 2020 Live Virtual Conference this year, we’re taking a look at some of the latest research regarding shingles (herpes zoster), postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), and the correlations between this long-known condition — which can go from simply pesky to downright hellacious — and the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.

    It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It: Getting Results With Guided Imagery in Spanish

    So, I’ve been on the prowl to cadge some good stories (AKA anecdotal data) about using our guided imagery in Spanish. I put out an APB to various providers who’d been test-driving the first 5 new Spanish guided meditations in our rapidly evolving Spanish Library.

  7. (COVID) 19 — The Loneliest Number

    (COVID) 19 — The Loneliest Number

    Stop me if you’ve heard this story. Some years ago now, it’s been reported that a student asked famed cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead what she considered to be the first sign of civilization. Her response? A 15,000-year-old fractured femur that had broken, then healed. Connecting hip to knee, the femur is the longest bone in the human body, and when broken, it takes about six weeks of rest to heal — six weeks during which this person would have been completely reliant on members of their community.

    What does it say about humanity that our earliest ancestors were inclined to so thoroughly uplift and care for each other in times of need?

    Coping With COVID: Back-To-School On Pins And Needles

    If you’ve got a child of grade school age, you don’t need another reminder that the 2020-21 school year is upon us. You’ve been inundated with information for months now, juggling too many balls for way too long, and feeling so overextended that your joints just might pop.

    Figuratively, anyway.

  9. Teach Your Children Well — But Remotely, Or In Person?

    Teach Your Children Well — But Remotely, Or In Person?

    Back in March, a good friend of mine had been right smack in the middle of a semester abroad, living out a dream and residing in the heart of Salamanca in Spain — and then the coronavirus hit. At first, she was hopeful that the threat would be minimal, that she could safely shelter in place, complete coursework online, and finish out the school year before returning home.

    I think we probably all wish that had been the case, all around, but it didn’t last.

  10. The Ephemeral Nature of Normal

    The Ephemeral Nature of Normal

    Here’s a question for you, now that we’re a little halfway through this mishigas of a year: what does “normal” even mean anymore?

    I won’t quote dictionaries at you; you know better than anyone else what normal looks like for you. As humans, we’re simple creatures of habit. We get into routines, we set our own boundaries, we develop preferences and nurture them. We create our normal, settle in and get comfortable — and then along comes a pandemic to throw everything into the air like so many juggling balls.
