As we grow into adults we build skills that help us function in the world socially, professionally, and interpersonally. Because of increasing demands, though, it’s easy to forget practicing what came to us so naturally as children, but it’s so important to experience the joy of being alive. It fuels our resiliency through life’s inevitable challenges and offers healing to our whole selves. Play is medicine, and it is our birthright.
More playtime in the kitchen with those you love is always a great way to encourage a healthier relationship with nutritious foods! By creating time together around food, and making it FUN to be together (smiles and laughing is the goal) we actually can expect more adventures with our eating. Both kids and adults are much more likely to expand food choices and try new varieties of foods when involved in the process of preparing it. From picking to washing, to chopping (age appropriate of course), to mixing and cooking, and finally to plating the food items, there are so many ways to engage your loved ones in the kitchen! When is the last time you played with your food with your friends and family?!
Stress is becoming an epidemic in our culture. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, stress is the number one health epidemic of the 21st century. While a stress response is a normal function for our bodies and we definitely need it in certain circumstances, being constantly stressed is not healthy and can make us sick. As hard as we try we cannot stop stressful things from happening in our lives. But we can learn to dance differently with it.

Sexual addiction can be devastating to the individual addict as well as to their spouse and family. Statistics show that 3-6% of the population or 17 to 37 million people suffer from sex addiction in the U.S. And while women can be sex addicts, research shows that most are primarily male. In fact, there are three times as many men who are considered sex addicts than woman. Ironically, people struggling with sex addictions may even outnumber the people in America who report abusing prescription drugs (19 million).
For many men, erectile dysfunction can be both frustrating and distressing. Most individuals who end up seeking treatment by a physician are usually given prescription medications without addressing the root cause of the condition. As the percentage of men suffering from ED increases, researchers have found an interesting correlation between pornography use and men’s sexual health. Porn induced erectile dysfunction is a controversial topic and is not always screened for in the healthcare field. However, clinical reports show that in fact the connection is real and men are experiencing higher rates of delayed ejaculation, decreased sexual satisfaction and low libido.
