Herb Benson, founder of the Mind -Body institute at MGH, died recently. So thankful for his contributions to medicine and for being a champion of meditation as a therapeutic tool. https://bensonhenryinstitute.org/the-passing-of-herbert-benson-md/?fbclid=IwAR1BZ7dHJdGWGiypeBiiAyesAYQ0lUUDxnd_Vq-1h6qTaIQH8ZbEJmFy7DI

Time in nature is good for your well-being. You should shoot for 120 min. per week.
This month (May) is Mental Health Awareness Month. It is an opportunity to both decrease stigma around mental illness and to raise awareness about behaviors that promote mental health and wellness. I’m proud to keep momentum going on both of these important priorities.
I hope you are all safe out there. Patients without power can message me for refills via email if unable to meet virtually. No cancellation fees for this situation- obviously. Also, the after hours system has been off and on due to power issues. Please call 911 or safely get to ER if unable to reach our team after hours and things cannot wait. Do not send emergent-urgent emails as uncertain if I will have power to respond to messages.
Your mental health isn’t just as important as your physical health- they are too interrelated to try to separate.

More data on mental health impacts- police shootings of unarmed POC are a public health crisis, and we need to support change.

Exploring how different types of yoga change psychological resources and emotional well-being across a single session

I recently attended an wonderful conference on yoga and health - then saw this great little article on how different types of yoga might impact us differently- aware this is a small study but thought the concept was fun to see how different emotions and were impacted by the various styles of yoga. As for other articles- more and more research is studying yoga as a means to manage stress, depression, and health.

Top Risk Factor for Mental Disorders Identified

https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/924365

Adverse events in childhood may be largest risk for mental health issues in adulthood. Preventing child abuse, bullying, and supporting those with parental losses is even more critical that once thought.

medscape.com Early life adversity -- including neglect and physical, emotional, and sexual abuse -- is the single biggest risk factor for psychiatric disorders, new research suggests.
