Details

CAN WORK BE RELAXING?

Not too many people would agree that "oh, yeah, my work is relaxing". For most of us, work involves plenty of stress. If we're in customer service, there's always a seemingly never-ending stream of customers with an abundance of problems that need to be handled yesterday. If we work in an office, office politics adds an unnecessary layer of stress to the normal daily stress of the work we're supposed to be doing. If we work for ourselves, there's the ongoing stress of...

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: DAVES STORY PART II

Details

This week's HTYH is a continuation of Dave's story: I suffered from a hundred forms of fear, fear of being less than others, fear of financial insecurity, fear of what my peers thought, fear of the police, fear of the IRS, fear of my wife's lawyer, fear that I wouldn't be invited back, fear of my boss. I'd be in my office and my boss would walk by and I'd asked him, "How are you, Don?" He ignored me so, I asked him again and when he didn't answer the second time my mind went to work: I'll bet...

Details

This week's HTYH is the beginning of Dave's story: The age of miracles has not passed, they're happening all around us and if you like happy endings you're in the right place. AA is full of happy endings. There are, of course, a few sad songs about the ones who took an arrow for us so that we might live, but we are the happy survivors. Before my recovery, I spent several months in the hospital and after they tested me for every malady known to science--nothing was found. After that the doctors...

A HEALTHY DAY: MAN & MACHINE

Details DR. JAMES NILL

Man and Machine

Is a computer like a human brain or is a human brain like a computer? When machines allow us to extend our abilities, are we enhancing our humanness or becoming more machine-like? What are the meaningful distinctions between humans and machines and how do these impact our daily pursuits of health, well-being, and happiness?

One primary practical distinction is that humans initiate spontaneous, unique, non-predetermined actions and machines do not. Advanced machines such as...

IT’S MY BODY; I’LL EXERCISE IT IF I HAVE TO

Details

Lately, I have noticed a lot of news regarding all aspects of the body. According to one report I read, this is a multibillion dollar-a-year business. I never knew my body was worth so much money. I'm tempted to sell it, or at least rent it out on a part-time basis.

I did not know how big of a deal this was until one night this past week I had a little trouble sleeping.

One reason I have trouble falling asleep is my deep fear of falling. Actually, it's not the fall that worries me so much as...
