Topic - Social Media Increases Social Isolation Young adults, those between nineteen and thirty-two, who are on social media for at least two hours a day double their risk of feeling socially isolated. Maybe that’s because they are! And therein lies the problem. Mental health and social isolation are at epidemic levels among young adults. If they visited the most popular social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram at least fifty-eight times a week, they tripled...

Topic - Be Careful About Helping Co-Workers I know it may sound unkind, but be careful about how much and when you help co-workers. It’s likely to take a toll on your physical and emotional well-being which you will then bring home and transfer to your family. Ok, so now that you’ve trained your co-workers to come to you for every little problem even though helping them isn’t your primary responsibility, you’ll have to un-train them. Once you tell them, privately, that you’re concerned...

Topic - Dangers Of Short-Term Opioid Use You stepped over the Lego tower and heard a pop-crack. Now, you’re on a short course of opioid medication and unknowingly, you’re set up for addiction. A study of emergency room patients found that about seven percent went home with an opioid prescription even for a sprained ankle. The amount of pills ranged from five to sixty. The more pills that were prescribed, the greater the chance that the prescription would be refilled. Those who got thirty...

Topic - Slow Down Texting Doesn’t Help “But, Mom, I slow down if I have to text”. Ding, ding, ding, that’s not gonna help. Slowing down to text actually increases your chances of getting into a crash. When you text or use your cell phone, you drive, on average, about two miles per hour slower. And when you slow down, other drivers react aggressively resulting in dangerous moves. From an emotional standpoint, they may be angry that you’re causing them to slow down because you’re on your...

Topic - High Schoolers Riding With Drunk Drivers We tell them, over and over, don’t we? Never get into a car with a friend who’s been drinking. Results of a study revealed that thirty-five percent of high schoolers reported they had ridden in a car with a driver who drank at least one drink the previous hour. I thought, “That message isn’t getting through”. About twenty percent were in a car whose driver had smoked weed within the two hours before getting behind the wheel. Males were more...

Topic - Forcing Your Child To Share In the 1980’s there was a “Sharing is Caring” movement started by the Care Bears, remember those? For years, we forced our kids to share their toys thinking that we’re teaching our kids to be gracious and generous. Actually, we may not have been aware that sharing isn’t natural for most kids under the age of 5. Six is the age of reason and before then, kids can’t grasp the social complexities of sharing. In order to share, two things must be understood:...

Topic - Sensation Seeking Personality Style Know someone who’s always looking for the next thrill and thrives on excitement? They can’t help it; it’s their neurology that results in a sensation seeking personality style. Think of it as “spice”. Some people don’t like the heat and for others, the hotter the better. Some have a low threshold for sensing the heat and others have a higher set point. Not good, not bad, just different. So it goes with those who seek novelty and intense...

Topic - Dogs And Sex Appeal Did you know that your dog can increase your sex appeal? A study done by a London match making company asked which group of pet owners they preferred and by a seven to two margin, they chose dog owners. The difference was due to personality. Dog owners are regarded as being more sociable and energetic and cats, well, people think they’re selfish and aloof. More than half of the people polled think that a pet owner will be a good roommate because it means they’re...

Topic - High Schoolers Pot Use Underperform People who are impaired due to substance use don’t perform their best. Throw in an immature brain and it’s easy to believe that high schoolers who smoke pot don’t do well in adulthood. Researchers discovered that high school students who smoke pot just once a month were four times more likely to skip school, not turn in homework or get good grades. When they smoke on a daily basis, their desire to finish high school or go to college was fifty...

Topic - Body Jerking and Head Exploding When Falling Asleep Ever had that “body jerking” or “head exploding” thing happen just as you’re going to sleep? The jerk is called the “hypnic jerk” which could be caused by caffeine and tobacco as well as stimulant medications and exhaustion. When you’re so tired that your brain moves through the stages of sleep too quickly, it confuses itself into thinking the major systems of the body are failing and responds with a burst of chemicals that the...

Topic - The Miracle Of Melatonin Psychiatrists treating my clients for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder also recommended they take melatonin as a sleep aid. Sleep problems occur along with ADHD. Melatonin has been a mystery hormone for decades. We now know that it not only induces sleep but “keeps the brain in order”, too. Melatonin is released by the pineal gland which is a very small brain structure that tells the body it’s time to rest when darkness falls. During the night,...

Topic - On Meds, ADHD Drivers Are Safe If you have ADHD and aren’t medically treated for it, you’re more likely to have a major accident than those drivers with ADHD who are taking their medications. If Sam forgets to take his meds, his level of alertness is compromised. He’s more likely to run a stop sign or red light, speed, change lanes without signaling or engage in other reckless or distracted driving all leading to a fifty percent higher rate of serious accidents than other drivers....

Topic - New Vaping Dangers More Americans are using electronic cigarettes and the consequences are ugly. Young vapers are showing up in doctor’s offices with bloody lesions in their mouths and throats that won’t heal. The vapors inflame mouth cells in ways that cause gum disease. Why is this a problem? Because the more your gums hurt, the less you’ll brush and earlier than not, your teeth will fall out. Mouth sores and gum disease are just a few of the effects of vaping. The most serious...

Topic - Night Time Noise And Men’s Fertility Noise is linked to many health problems including pregnancy complications, premature birth and congenital deformities. Now, it’s learned that too much noise at night negatively impacts a man’s fertility. Earlier studies on animals proved that noise has an effect on male fertility, but this latest study concludes that excessive noise, especially at nighttime, can render a man infertile. Other factors in the participants’ lives could not better...

Topic - Couples Without Children Are Judged Harshly We fear what we don’t understand. We fear things that are different. We’re afraid of things we just can’t make sense of such as those couples who are able to have children, but choose not to. We actually scorn them. We also feel anger, disapproval and even disgust. We think it’s morally wrong and unnatural. Unlike other situations, we feel free to make our feelings and opinions known and even discriminate against those who’ve made this...
