Dr. Ellen’s Health Tip
I am currently in the middle of a challenging and high-pressure 10-week course full of deadlines, demands and meetings. I find myself returning to my breath more than usual. This type of intense stimulation doesn’t feel good in my body. Can you relate?
Mr. Rogers put it best: “I’m very concerned that our society is much more concerned with information than wonder, in noise rather than silence. How do we encourage reflection? … Oh my, this is a noisy world.”
The world and our lives can be very stimulating to our bodies. Therefore, it is deeply important to center yourself often! Do less, seek silence, and focus inward.
This week is about assessing yourself, evaluating your recovery, and connection breathing! We will be using connection breath work frequently with many opportunities to calm and center yourself. I look forward to hearing your experiences when you are curious about these moments of wonder.
Functional Medicine Corner
One of my mantras for 2023, and one that I share with so many of my patients is “find joy”. Not just once in a while. Not just when it happens to occur by chance. I’m talking every single day. Even *gasp* multiple times a day if possible. What does this mean? Why is this so important to me personally, and why do I take the time to discuss this with my patients as a health care provider?
First of all, many of our very best life experiences and memories occur when we are having fun, or joyful. And truly, that is a big part of what life should be about! But science also shows us that when we are having fun and finding joy in our daily lives, it helps us to decrease or manage stress, boost our mood, and even improve our health and longevity. So, one of the most important prescriptions I can give my patients is to find joy and play!
This TED talk – yes another one, and I promise it is worth it – discusses FUN, and the fact that fun is a feeling, not an activity. (For instance, for some riding roller coasters may be loads of fun, and for others it is a cruel form of torture). And to “have fun”, it often includes playfulness, connection with others, and flow, or a sensation of losing sense of time while completely immersing ourselves in the moment. This can look like so many different things, and we don’t necessarily need to set aside hours to have fun. Playing a game of Uno or having a dance party with your kids or partner for even 15 minutes can bring a little fun into your day!
For those of us who are productivity driven, taking breaks to find joy and have fun also allows us to be more present and focused when we are working. So, find joy as often as possible – even WODs at Mindset count, especially when we are laughing our way through them!
