How to Stop Overthinking & Start Listening to Your Body
Indian Springs is a natural hot springs resort in Calistoga, California. It is one of those places people go to unplug, relax, and enjoy the healing mineral waters. I was enjoying a long, hot soak in the outdoor pool when a loud voice rippled through the silence, “Honey, you will love this. It’s just like lemonade.” My body responded with a tug in the back of my throat. I immediately got thirsty and opened my eyes. More

How to Turn Resistance Into Resilience
When we get hooked on the latest video game on our phone, or our favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, we are tapping into one of the most evolutionarily conserved learning processes currently known to science, one shared among countless species and dating back to the most basic nervous systems known to man. This reward-based learning process basically goes like this: We see some food that looks good. Our brain says, Calories, survival! And we eat the food. More

An Interview With Tamara Jeffries
Omega: What was your entry into yoga and how has it impacted your life? Tamara: I remember being little and watching Lilias Folan on television. She was my first intro to yoga and I was fascinated by her long braid of hair, but of course I wasn’t practicing back then. In the 1980s, I was exploring off and on, practicing at home. I bought a few books and that eventually led to me to sign up for a teacher training. More

Is paying attention becoming a thing of the past? We relinquish it at our own peril. Think about it. Kitchen sensors can notify us when the milk in our refrigerator has reached its sell-by date and needs replacing. But is it worth sacrificing our sensory awareness? If we no longer read the expiration date, sniff or taste the product, or shake it to hear or feel lumps that may have formed, our powers of observation are diminished. More

Lessons From Tennis in Stress Reduction & Relaxation
Our approach to resilience differs from traditional notions of resilience in an important respect. When we tell people that our work is about helping our clients stay resilient, they often say, “I know someone who is very resilient; she bounced back from ___________.” You can fill in the blank: cancer, hurricane, divorce, or any other major ordeal that qualifies as something difficult to recover from. These extreme scenarios can be devastating, and a lot of support is available to help you manage these catastrophic events. More

How to Generate the Ultimate Renewable Resource: Love
The explosion of technology has really made time speed up. Everybody is practicing multitasking and trying to keep a number of balls in the air. This has taken a real toll on the intimacy of couples, and so couples have to consciously learn and practice how to stop, slow down, and give each other undivided attention. When you are generating love, love becomes the ultimate renewable resource. —Richard Borofsky and Antra Kalnins Borofsky More
Many people are confused when they first get a diagnosis of Lyme disease. You might be suffering from a myriad of seemingly unconnected symptoms, or have received conflicting diagnoses and/or treatments from your healthcare providers, some of which may work and others may not. The reason for this confusion is not just that Lyme disease is complex, but more to the point, that you are unique. Your genetic makeup, and even the bacterial populations within the microbiome of your gut, is specific to you. More

I’m sure you know the incredible release that happens when you are nearing a vacation you’ve been planning, especially if it’s one you’ve been thinking of for a long time. For those of us in the daily grind of a traditional work/life relationship, this may be a vacation we’ve planned for and worked an entire year or even years toward. Maybe you relish the moments that lead up to that one- or two-week paradise, perhaps even adopting an “I don’t care so much” attitude to normal stressors as you get closer to the moment in which you know you will leave it all behind.
