11/25-Can stress age us?


Thea Singer - Stress Less
Now, more than ever, people are living through some of the greatest stresses. As many as 8 out of 10 Americans are stressed out due to the economy. Out of that 80%, women tend to be more worried than men, in terms of their personal finances, work, housing costs, and job stability. So, what’s the long term affect?
Stress and aging—an anecdotally inexorable link. We’ve all seen friends become symbols of the phenomenon; indeed, we’re all running from the gray hair and sagging jowls, the papery skin and flabby bellies that would qualify us for the role ourselves. In STRESS LESS (for Women): Calm Your Body, Slow Aging, and Rejuvenate the Mind in 5 Simple Steps [Plume; January 2012; ISBN: 978-0-452-29765-4] we learn about the new studies that show that chronic stress may actually gnaw away at our DNA, speeding up the rate at which our cells age by a shocking 10 years or more. The find gave scientific credence to a truth those of us over 25 have known in our bones (and hearts and multiple other organs) for years.
The amount of stress people feel they are under, correlate with how close to the end their cells might be. That means that each of us holds the antidote — the ability to slow that unsightly ripening — in our own hands, or more precisely in our brains and bodies.
But wait, we protest. We’ve tried so hard to be good: We eat right to stay slim and exercise to keep our hearts and muscles strong. What gives?
The truth is, all along we may have been targeting the wrong villains, those we can see—calories, carbs, fat, couch-potato-ness-rather than one that gets under the skin (and radar); Stress.
In STRESS LESS (for Women), we are given the tools to start influencing where we stand on the aging spectrum. We learn how crucial having a sense of control is in reducing stress- and how crucial reducing stress is to slowing the aging process, all the way down to the DNA in our cells. Stress maybe the new biological clock-but we also hold within us the means to slow and even rewind its springs. We have the ability to change how we perceive the world.

10/28-Stress and Headaches: Prevention and Solutions for Everyday Living


The Migraine Solution, a new book written by Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital associated physicians Elizabeth Loder, MD, MPH, and Paul Rizzoli, MD, is geared towards a headache sufferer or a concerned family member, and explores new research related to migraines and their treatment, as well as clarifying many of the myths surrounding headache management.
"The Migraine Solution contains everything we would tell our patients about headache if we had the time with each one,” says Dr. Rizzoli. "This includes practical advice about the problem, the treatments, lifestyle issues, and how to get help." Rizzoli states that many headache books for the general reader tend to have a "hook", like claiming that a patient can do something themselves to manage headache, like diet.  However, headache is often more complicated than that. "At Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital, we believe  that a partnership approach, which emphasizes that the physician and the patient both have a role to play in migraine management, is often the most effective type of treatment plan in battling migraine,” continues Dr. Rizzoli.

9/23-Mindful Self-Compassion


Christopher Germer, PhD, Harvard Faculty and clinical psychotherapist discusses his book, The Mindful Path to Self- Compassion: Freeing Yourself From Destructive Thoughts and Emotions.

Mindful self-compassion is the foundation of emotional healing—being aware in the present moment when we're struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions—fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt—in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives. Mindful self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves especially when we’re suffering—cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and free from suffering.
