Am I Stressed Or Anxious, Or BOTH? What's the difference and how can it be treated ?

Reprint from with permission from it’s great that society is in an era of championing mental-health authenticity and awareness, extreme stress and anxiety are still all-too-common states for so many folks getting real about mental-health struggles and the internet (sometimes unfortunately) at our fingertips, it’s still easy to confuse stress and anxiety. Simply put, they’re both traumatic states of emotional and psychological strain driven by a vague feeling of impending doom or upcoming deadlines. There are, however, huge differences between the two that are important to note since best practices for approaching and treating the conditions are hardly one and the same. Here’s the lowdown on stress and anxiety—and how to handle both. 3/6 What exactly is stress?  The most notable difference between anxiety and stress is that stress almost always comes with an identifiable cause, according to therapist and social worker Scott Dehorty, executive director at addictio…

15 ways For Mid-Lifers To Stay Healthy During Flu Season

Flu season is here with a vengeance.  To make matters worse, the flu season always seems to come right around the holiday season.  The extra stress, cold, and general hurried pace don't help those who are trying to ward off the flu.  As a mid-lifer, I feel the need to take extra care of myself and be more aware of the do's and don't when it comes to preventing getting the flu.  

Here are a few suggestions to help prevent the flu.  Some of these tips you may already be doing, but just in case, let's go over a few practices that will help fortify our immune system and keep us healthy.

Rest - even though this is a busy time of the year, rest is more important than standing in the lines at the stores.  Plan your days so that you also allow for a bit more rest.  Learn how to say "no" when you are beginning to feel weary and tired.   As mid-lifers, the holidays usually means visits with the grandchildren and others that you don't normally see.  While this is wond…

Tips To "UnStick" Negativity's Impact On Your Mind, Body and Spirit

Take the opportunity to have joy!
It seems these days that there is so much negativity.  It can at times not just be overwhelming but just plain energy-draining to listen to all the negative news and to hear people continually complaining.    I am not saying that some of this complaining and negativity isn't warranted but what I am saying we don't have to let it impact our lives in an adverse manner.

Studies have shown that ongoing negativity in our lives can eventually create chronic stress, upset our hormonal balance, deplete brain chemicals that help us to feel happy, and damage the immune system.   All of this can decrease our ability to live a long and healthy life.

But, the good news is, there are things you can do to get rid of the impact negativity has on your life.   All of these suggestions can help you flip the script on negativity and get in a more positive frame of mind.  Not only will you start to feel better emotionally but these suggestions can help improve any…

#1 Anti-Aging Tip That We Don't Do Enough!

SLEEP - is now in the news.  Arianna Huffington has written a book about the necessity of sleep. Her new book "The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life One Night At A Time"  talks about how important it is to get enough sleep.  Arianna's book talks about the fact that we are a sleep-deprived society and if we don't change our patterns of sleep the result can be poor health and in some cases death.  In a recent article written by Jane Mulkerrins about Arianna Huffington and her book, Ms. Mulkerrins discovered that "skimping on sleep may eventually, affect us so badly that those of us who don’t end up dead – through cancer, heart disease or fatal accidents caused by exhaustion – will be overweight, stupid and depressed, our brains, metabolisms and moods ravaged.  Sleep deprivation has even been tied to making one more susceptible to Alzheimer's!

Want to Increase Your Brain Health? Here Is A Diet for A Healthy Brain

I noticed something this weekend that scared me. 

I found myself struggling to remember names of places, and some people.  It felt like the name I was looking for was within grasp but I just couldn't quite get it!  Immediately I thought of my grandfather.  He developed Dementia at age 70.  He lived to be 97 years old, but by then his short-term memory was almost gone.  I also thought of my Dad who lived to be 87 and was sharp as a tack. 

I decided right then and there that I was going to create a diet for my brain health, focus and concentration.   This is the brain diet that I have been doing for the last year.  I can tell you, I truly do feel a significant difference.  SERIOUSLY!! 

It is important to eat breakfast.  Period.  Just coffee and orange juice with a pastry are not enough nor does it help with your brain health.  In the morning include these in your breakfast: 

Boiled Egg- the egg has choline in it which is a powerful nutrient found in the vit…
