The Virus Is a Reminder of Something Lost Long Ago

"But there is something more to be regained, something more subtle, more delicate, almost impossible even to name. That is the restoration of our inner selves. By inner self, I mean that part of me that imagines, that dreams, that explores, that is constantly questioning who I am and what is important to me. My inner self is my true freedom. My inner self roots me to me, and to the ground beneath me. The sunlight and soil that nourish my inner self are solitude and personal reflection. When I listen to my inner self, I hear the breathing of my spirit. Those breaths are so tiny and delicate, I need stillness to hear them, I need slowness to hear them. I need vast silent spaces in my mind. I need privacy. Without the breathing and the voice of my inner self, I am a prisoner of the frenzied world around me. I am a prisoner of my job, my money, the clothes in my closet. What am I? I need slowness and quiet to ponder that question."

All Of Us

Adrienne Clements, LMFT



With everything going on in the world with COVID-19, I can deeply empathize with all the suffering, grief, overwhelm, and fear of the unknown. This is a strange new world and yet it feels slightly familiar in some ways to me (I'm sure many other #invisiblewarriors can relate!). Why? Because for 4 years my life and world were upended by an infectious disease.

An infectious disease of any kind is not something that I would wish upon anyone. Through this uninvited experience of illness and through supporting so many others going through crisis as a therapist, there are some things I have learned over the years about what helps us to be resilient in the most trying of times.

Therefore, in this first official vlog is going to be a little bit longer and I'm going to get more personal as I shared the top 6 things I have learned about resilience from surviving an infectious disease. It's never comfortable to be vulnerable, but I know we are all feeling that way right now and my hopes are these perspectives will be of service and helpful to some of you out there during this incredibly trying time for the world. Please feel free to take what works for you and leave what does not.

May all beings be at peace, may all beings be free of suffering!

Fiber Is Good for You. Now Scientists May Know Why.

Fiber does much more than provide bulk to move waste through our systems speedily - it indirectly provides us with an additional source of fuel, after feeding a host of others in our guts! Read the full article to learn more:

"But our bodies make a limited range of enzymes, so that we cannot break down many of the tough compounds in plants. The term โ€œdietary fiberโ€ refers to those indigestible molecules.

But they are indigestible only to us. The gut is coated with a layer of mucus, atop which sits a carpet of hundreds of species of bacteria, part of the human microbiome. Some of these microbes carry the enzymes needed to break down various kinds of dietary fiber.

The ability of these bacteria to survive on fiber we canโ€™t digest ourselves has led many experts to wonder if the microbes are somehow involved in the benefits of the fruits-and-vegetables diet. Two detailed studies published recently in the journal Cell Host and Microbe provide compelling evidence that the answer is yes."

Breathe deeply, practice often, be well.

nytimes.com A series of unusual experiments in mice finds that dietary fiber fine-tunes the immune system and may help prevent chronic inflammation.

What sugar does to your brain

A little support for your 2018 healthy eating goals ;) Breathe deeply, practice often, be well.

"The first person to confirm that effect in humans was Professor Richard Stevenson, leading a team at Macquarie University, earlier this year.

He had volunteers spend a week eating a high-fat, high-sugar breakfast. After just four days, their performance on memory tests fell dramatically.

โ€œSugar seems to adversely impact the hippocampus and longer-term brain structures that are involved in decision-making and pleasure,โ€ he says.

The University of Sydneyโ€™s Dr Kieron Rooney once did a quick study โ€“ largely for a lark โ€“ on a small group of people who signed up to a popular quit sugar diet. He was surprised to find that their memories had significantly improved by the end of the diet.

Professor Morris has spent more than 20 years putting rats on high-sugar diets. She says the results are consistent and repeatable. โ€œWeight gain and a cognitive decline - itโ€™s quite a large effect,โ€ she says.

So, what can you do to protect your brain from sugar?

Beyond trying to eat less of it, not much, experts say.

To deal with the addictive powers of sugar, Professor Selena Bartlett suggests meditation exercises to build focus and willpower."

Texas is Leading the Country in Flu Cases

Often over the holidays we're out of our normal routine: less or different sleep, more sugar (!), maybe a little less hydrated than we normally aim to be. The flu is hitting Austin pretty hard already, and apparently this is one of those many things that Texas is doing bigger than everyone else ;) Here's a friendly reminder to get your rest, drink your water, watch your intake of sweets and please please please STAY HOME AND REST if you feel unwell, dear ones. Better for you, better for everyone. Wishing you all a very healthy and happy weekend!
