Pillow Talk: how sleep affects everything
How do you get good sleep in an era of Leaning In and Netflix binging? Sleep is not so easy to come by these days. And being tired all the time affects your work, your home life, your social life, and everyone around you.
Not sleeping enough is like driving your car on fumes all the time: it eventually wears out your engine. Losing a couple of hours of sleep every night is linked to chronic illnesses like diabetes, obesity, heart problems, stroke, and more.
Menstrual Health Day – Taking Back our Periods
It’s time to talk about our periods, period.
This is an entry for everyone, not just menstruating women… so listen up!
First, I’d like to debunk the notion that PMS, feeling crazy, tons of pain and heavy periods that have people in adult diapers is a normal thing, or that a barely-there bleed is normal. It’s not…unfortunately it’s just common. And there is a huge distinction, because what this means is that there is actually an opportunity for those of us who menstruate to have a healthier period and an easier experience.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US
from Third Space
More of what people are saying about us
“I had open heart surgery over 30 years ago and it wasn’t until I was an adult and studying meditation that I noticed my breath didn’t seem to move through my chest smoothly. There were emotions that I struggled with as well… giving and receiving love and feeling secure with myself… My acupuncturist, Joy Andrews, suggested a scar treatment…. It has been an amazing spiritual experience! Breath became smooth and easy. Words like open heart, full, and complete came to mind. No pits or peaks in mood… My body still feels the needles and I will sleep well tonight as I remember my purpose here is to love and that is all.” ~ Ally
“I started the acupuncture treatment for two reasons. One was for bad headaches and the other one was the need for preventive care. And it helped both of my needs. I am now off headache medication and I am feeling a lot healthier. The treatment also taught me how to get to know me inside as well so I could actually communicate with my body.” ~ Sun
As a crazy scientist who works 10 to 12 hours a day, I realized that swimming and walking the dogs was not providing enough balance to keep me sane. I discovered the Body Flow class, a blend of yoga, tai chi, and Pilates, taught by Sam Dublin. After a few sessions, I quickly learned to appreciate Sam’s in-depth knowledge, customer-oriented teaching style, and gentle way of encouragement and support. Her approach to instructing a class that is composed of a wide range of students’ skills and ages is all-inclusive, yet highly effective. I love the class and hope more weekly sessions will be added that fit my busy schedule. ~ Franziska
