Fun little fact: Sometimes I just want to rip my shirt off during a workout. And I'm not talking about feeling so sexy and strong that my inner Hulk comes out (but if that's how you feel, by all means, do you). I'm talking about feeling like I'm drowning in my own sweat, and that the only way to get some relief is to shed that extra layer of fabric. GET OFF OF ME, SHIRT.As summer approaches, this take-it-all-off need is becoming a regular occurrence for me. Unfortunately, there's something about Read more [...]
Mother’s Day is not the easiest of holidays for me. I am childless by choice and have never been called “mom.” No human has ever said, “Happy Mother’s Day mom, I love you!”
But can we be mothers to children that we didn’t give birth to or adopt, and to species other than humans? I am the single provider for two dogs, Sanchez and Gina. But, I usually think of them as my companion animals, not my children, even though others may see me as a crazy pet parent, with my children Read more [...]

It teaches us that glowing skin truly comes from within and is a result of the way we care for ourselves rather than the potions we choose to use. Of course our favourite products can help to enhance our natural Read more [...]
Before I took up running, any moment of anxiety, panic, or depression seemed like something I needed to sprint through. I’ve lived with mental health disorders for 18 years, and I always felt that I needed to get through the difficult moments as quickly as possible. If I didn’t, I thought I’d be labeled “weak” or “crazy.”When I started running a little over two years ago, I approached it the same way: I’d start out as fast as I could, and I’d quickly exhaust myself and give up for Read more [...]
As an MD, I’ve watched too many of my colleagues yank out anti-depressant samples every time a patient starts to cry. So on behalf of physicians everywhere, let me apologize for our trigger-happy prescription-writing behavior. I don’t mean to diminish the pain someone who is depressed might experience. But tears are healthy. Sadness doesn’t always need treatment. And it’s important to remember that the pain muscle and the joy muscle are the same. If you can’t feel one, Read more [...]
