By |

A few years ago I saw a patient who had a mental breakdown to the extent that it required being hospitalized.  She had been doing ok in life working full-time as an administrator until she went through a divorce from her husband of over 20 years.  At that time her adult daughter also moved across the country for a new job and her son was about to flunk out of college.  The stress and pain [...]

And what better way to do that than to commit to a routine? “I’m going to meditate every day.” “I’ll only have alcohol one day a week.” “I want to run a 5k by summer and I have to run ___ miles a week to be ready for [...]
