Topic - Seasons and Mental Illness. Though it sounds a bit like “fake science”, there is research to support the idea that the season in which you are born makes you vulnerable to certain mental illnesses. Those born in winter and spring have a 5 to 8 percent increase of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and those born in spring are more likely to develop depression. Night owls are more likely born in spring and summer, while morning birds are born in fall and winter. Curiosity,...

Topic - Yawning, Empathy and Autism. Young autistic children, about 1 to 4 years of age, do not respond to others’ yawning as much as their peers without autism. “Responsive” yawning is seen in about half of adults even though most can’t resist a good yawn. This lack of yawning with others represents problems with empathy. Those with autism have low levels of mirror neurons that allow us to imitate others. It also impedes motor planning which inhibits the growth of playground and self-care...

Topic - Men and Dancing. Decades ago, American Band Stand highlighted both the music and the athletic dancing of American teens. Dancing skills have declined since that time, but the desire to dance has not. It’s not a secret that women are attracted to men who dance well. It might be more about self-confidence and playfulness than actual skills, but women rate men who have rhythmical head, neck and upper body movement as sexier and more attractive than men who focus on lower body...

Topic - Tired Of Your Food Menu? My Mom cooked for all 6 of us, the 5 kids and Dad every day of our lives. She had a minuscule kitchen and a limited budget. As she got older, she would say from time-to-time “I’m really tired of food”. Now that I’ve been in charge of the family menu for decades, I understand her sentiment. We get stuck making the same uninspired dishes and our family balks if we make something new. Too bad. Make something different. If they don’t like it, there’s always...

Topic - Your Emotional Time Zone. Which emotional time zone do you live in? The past? The present? The future? There are those who say, “Get over it, that’s the past, move on”, but you can’t. You can’t make sense of what happened, but you need to figure it out in order to move into the present and look toward the future. It’s foolish to think that you can leave your past behind, but if you take up residence there, it’s not healthy. You know what we say about history; if you don’t study it,...

Topic - How Schools Use Your Tax Dollars Against You. Mike’s parents knew they had to do something. He’s in the 9th grade, failing his classes and testing proved his reading was at the 3rd grade level. It was time to get a lawyer and file a complaint against the district for failing to educate their child. If Mike’s parents are lucky, they’ll find an effective lawyer who’ll take their case on a contingency basis. If they’re unlucky, they’ll write retainer checks for many thousands of...

Topic - Emotional Decibels of Words. “I hate chocolate mint chip ice cream”, Paul said. His mother sharply said, “Paul, we don’t hate anything”. Why do we accept some words more than others? Because nearly every word has an emotional component. Whether we accept or reject words has to do with its emotional decibel level. Does the word cause a positive or negative response? In writing or speaking, it’s important to choose the emotional tone that matches your feelings. A stronger position...

Topic - Smaller Scale of an Autistic Life. It suddenly occurred to me when I was talking to a mom. I was explaining how her autistic son would need a smaller college and a humane work environment once he graduates. He has tremendous potential to overcome many of his symptoms because he has very strong language which allowed him to develop his intelligence. Anxiety and severe attentional issues will be at play for a while. She sighed and said, “I wanted him to have a bigger life”. The “ah...

Topic - Make Friends and Be Healthy. People talk about “friends” differently from “acquaintances. The more “friends” you have, however you define them, the healthier you are. The sense of belonging is essential to mental health. On the hierarchy of needs, it’s just above the food, clothing, shelter, safety level. It’s just that important. Having social support reduces depression, anxiety and encourages more effective problem-solving. The shared emotional experience reduces sorrow and pain,...

Topic - Women and Smoking. Women have a much harder time with quitting smoking and it’s a brain thing. When women smoke, dopamine, the reward and pleasure chemical is released rapidly into the part of the brain associated with habit formation. We know that nicotine causes 200% more dopamine to be released when you smoke. But this “double whammy” of delivering so much dopamine to the habit forming center of the brain makes it difficult for women to quit. Women need a very different approach...

Topic - Weight Loss and Teens. Ever heard the expression, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make ’em drink?” Well, nagging your teenagers about losing weight is the same dynamic. Teenagers lose weight when they are ready, not to please their parents or impress their peers. Be supportive and create an environment where they can meet the goals they, themselves, have established. No need to get complicated. Just have fresh fruits and veggies, chicken and fish in the house....

Topic - LED's and Sleep. Computer monitors, reading lights and other LED screens contribute to sleep problems. If you use devices with light emitting diode screens just before bed, you’re in for trouble. We now know that the action of LED screens make it hard to fall asleep and wake up feeling alert and ready to go. LEDs are so powerful that they disrupt circadian rhythm which is the primitive and naturally-occurring clock that regulates your daily life. The problem is not with the...
