Real Food/Fake Food

Real Food/Fake Food


Olmsted makes you insanely hungry and steaming mad-a must-read for anyone who cares deeply about the safety of our food and the welfare of our planet.” -Steven Raichlen, author of the Barbecue! Bible series”The world is full of delicious, lovingly crafted foods that embody the terrain, weather, and culture of their origins. Unfortunately, it’s also full of brazen impostors. In this entertaining and important book, Olmsted helps us fall in love with the real stuff and steer clear of the fraudsters.” -Kirk Kardashian, author of Milk Money: Cash, Cows, and the Death of the American Dairy Farm You’ve seen the headlines: Parmesan cheese made from wood pulp. Lobster rolls containing no lobster at all. Extra-virgin olive oil that isn’t. So many fake foods are in our supermarkets, our restaurants, and our kitchen cabinets that it’s hard to know what we’re eating anymore. In Real Food / Fake Food, award-winning journalist Larry Olmsted convinces us why real food matters and empowers consumers to make smarter choices. Olmsted brings readers into the unregulated food industry, revealing the shocking deception that extends from high-end foods like olive oil, wine, and Kobe beef to everyday staples such as coffee, honey, juice, and cheese. It’s a massive bait and switch in which counterfeiting is rampant and in which the consumer ultimately pays the price. But Olmsted does more than show us what foods to avoid. A bona fide gourmand, he travels to the sources of the real stuff to help us recognize what to look for, eat, and savor: genuine Parmigiano-Reggiano from Italy, fresh-caught grouper from Florida, authentic port from Portugal. Real foods that are grown, raised, produced, and prepared with care by masters of their craft. Part cautionary tale, part culinary crusade, Real Food / Fake Food is addictively readable, mouthwateringly enjoyable, and utterly relevant.

Feeling Down Post-Election? Tap Into Your Resilience Reserves

Since Tuesday, I have heard from patients, friends and co-workers who are having a difficult time processing the outcome of the election. While I cannot make your pain go away, I want to share some thoughts on how to stay strong during this challenging time. You are more resilient than you know, and now is the moment to tap into your resilience reserves.

1. Get Out of Bed: As tempting as it may be to hide under your duvet and not go to work or class, this will only exacerbate how bad you feel. Maintaining your routine during a difficult time is one of the best ways to get through it. Make your bed. Brush your teeth. Take your exams. Go to the office. Attend to your responsibilities. You will feel stronger within your stress.

2. Hit the Trail: Take inspiration from that image of Hillary Clinton hiking in the woods with her dogs two days after the election. Nature is one of the best remedies for heartbreak and sadness.

3. Take Care of Yourself: Inhaling a tub of ice cream, drinking tequila and staying up late may numb the pain in the moment but erode the resiliency reserves you need. Prioritize sleep, eating well and exercise. You are in charge of these choices. On that note…

4. Recognize What You Can and Can’t Control: There are events and things in life that are beyond your control. Focus your time and energy on what you have control over — like your actions, your attitude, your generosity and your forgiveness.

5. Be the Change: Embrace learning mode and action mode, not hate mode. When difficulty arises, stress-hardy people ask themselves, “What can I learn from this?” Along these lines, be informed. Don’t rely on soundbites and social media. Make the extra effort to seek out reliable sources.

6. The Power of Words: Use language that reflects your values and that empowers you. Language that communicates helplessness, hopelessness, and hate undermines resilience and progress.

7. Be Your Best Self: If there was ever a moment to be the best version of yourself it is now. If you embrace compassion, empathy, tolerance and integrity, it will bring out the best in others. Starbucks CEO Howard Schulz’s letter to his employees captures the value of compassion at this critical moment:

Start today by recognizing the power we have to walk in someone else’s shoes, to demonstrate understanding, and to strip away the differences that divide us. Let’s each embrace the universal virtues of respect and dignity, refusing to allow the hatred on cable news, the ugliness of our politics, and the lack of political role models for our kids to define us and to dictate how we treat each other.

8. Focus on the Future: There is no benefit in wallowing in why or what if. For your friends, for your family, for your country and perhaps most importantly, for those you don’t know, be a force that helps our country move in a positive direction. Every year, two years and four years, you have the Constitutional privilege to vote again.

As Schulz concludes:

Rise above this moment to be the person that makes a positive difference in your neighborhood and community. Be the person who makes your family proud. Be the person who embodies the promise of America so others may see and feel the possibilities that come with being an American.

These Two Power Sisters Helped Save the Day (and Night) in 2016

2016-12-30-1483124430-1464972-AriannaandAgapiphotocreditJoshRothstein.jpg

Do you feel like you’re stumbling to the finish line of 2016? Someone wondered via Twitter whether Quentin Tarantino was the director of this year. Yup, that about sums it up. The countdown to 2017 has started early for many who are ready to put the year to rest. Good riddance, 2016!

We’ve been clobbered with bad news at every turn. The “if it bleeds, it leads” mantra of mainstream media doesn’t do us any favors. The approach is reminiscent of my Nana’s “guess who just died” phone calls.

Day and night, our anxieties are ramped up by headlines of doom and gloom.

We wonder why we’re such a sleep deprived, numbed out, over stimulated collective.

Like many people across time and space, there’s been a lot to contend with. There are massive problems wreaking havoc. The polarized election and aftermath, shaky economies, refugee crises, terror attacks, Brexit, nuclear threats, natural disasters, and even the sleuth of celebrity deaths have hit plenty of nerves.

The grave problems cannot be solved in five simple steps, and aren’t likely to disappear when the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, either.

It will take a lot of will to learn how to take better care of ourselves, and one another in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead of us.

Luckily, in the midst of all the chaos, 2016 delivered a powerful dose of sisterly wisdom to help us with this. One telling us to “wake up”, the other: “get to sleep”.

2016-12-30-1483124718-5543318-alarmclock1193291_640.jpg

You’d think the messages are contradictory, but really they are complementary. Agapi Stassinopoulos and her sister Arianna Huffington’s are modern Greek Goddesses amongst us–they’ve both overcome odds and spent their lives tirelessly working to change damaging paradigms. Most recently, their Thrive Global initiative delivers workshops to help address the significant burnout and stress crises threatening our wellbeing and sustainability.

This year, they’ve each delivered books emphasizing self-care at a time when we really need it. To help save the day (and night), their sage advice help us finesse the light and dark with greater ease.

Agapi’s new book, Wake Up to the Joy of You, debuted just two days after Christmas. It’s daily dose of meditation practices can rein in even the most unruly, distracted brains. She teaches how to awaken to greater presence, self-compassion and renew a sense of purposeful, zestful living. When you read it, it’s like she’s sitting with you, coaching you to abandon worry, and make health a priority. She’s the ultimate storyteller and guide.

Arianna’s The Sleep Revolution was released in April, urging more sane and scientifically grounded sleep practices. After her own dangerous bout of stress-induced burnout, she has become known as a “sleep evangelist”. She’s so deeply convinced of the need for change, she left her role as editor-in-chief at the Huffington Post to put all hands on deck towards Thrive.

Agapi and Arianna’s leadership have sparked conversations across the world, helping people rethink archaic work habits and policies that leave us sleep and emotionally deprived, and at greater risk for physical and mental health problems.

2016 is infamous for good reason. Our challenges won’t disappear when the ball drops. But, the wisdom from these generous thought leader sisters help us learn to simultaneously awaken and rest, so that we can meet 2017 with new resolve.

Thank you, Agapi and Arianna.

Happy new year, all.

Yvette Bowser Joins Less Cancer Board

2016-12-30-1483127280-1305620-unnamed.jpg

TV inspiration Yvette Bowser has joined the board of the Next Generation Choices Foundation (“Less Cancer”)

As founder of Less Cancer, I am very excited to have Yvette join our board. She is a trailblazing TV producer and writer who will lend her unique perspective, talent, and energy to our board.

Less Cancer was founded in 2004; we are recognized for our efforts in state capitals and on Capitol Hill for educating legislators and the public about the causes of – and precautions against – the 50 percent of cancers that are preventable. As an organization, Less Cancer has been the driving force behind the founding and initiating of National Cancer Prevention Day and the bipartisan United States Congressional Cancer Prevention Caucus. National Cancer Prevention Day events will be streamed live globally and will offer continuing education credits for physicians, nurses, and public health professionals.

Yvette has long been a supporter of Less Cancer’s work; she is selfless when it comes to working on behalf of the Less Cancer mission. I first met Yvette after her son Drew’s baseball team, in the Encino Little League in Los Angeles, California, raised money for Less Cancer in memory of Yvette’s mother who died from anaplastic thyroid cancer.

Yvette founded Sister Lee Productions, which produced shows such as Living Single, For Your Love and Half & Half. She is currently the executive producer/showrunner for the upcoming Netflix series Dear White People (a socio-political satire based on the 2014 film of the same name). Bowser was a consulting producer on Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated Blackish.

“I am truly looking forward to diving in and supporting the work of Less Cancer. I’d love to play even a small role in ending preventable cancers by helping raise awareness, educate the public and shape policies that will save lives and reduce the emotional and economic burden on families and society as a whole,” Bowser said.

Yvette joins the Less Cancer board which includes Thomas M. Sherman, MD, chairman; (myself) Bill Couzens, founder and president; Greg Lam, vice president; KC Graham, treasurer; Veronique Pittman, Miles O’Brien, David MacDonald, Larry Fisher, Robert Billot, Donna Eacho, Natalia (Ali) Pejacsevich and Maryann Donovan, PhD, MPH.

White Fang

White Fang


This thrilling adventure story from the celebrated author of The Call of the Wild traces a wolf-dog’s epic journey from savage beast to man’s best friend Three men traverse the frozen landscape of the Yukon Territory on a sled-two stand upright, one lies dead in a coffin. Stalked by a pack of starving wolves, the travelers are out of ammunition and low on food. When night falls, the wolves will make their final assault. The men’s time is running short, but White Fang’s story is just beginning. Part wolf, part dog, White Fang is a hunter without a pack, at home neither in the camp nor in the wilderness. From the banks of the frozen Klondike river to the teeming streets of Gold Rush-era San Francisco, White Fang never stops fighting-first to survive, and then to find a home. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Obamas Celebrate Their Last Thanksgiving At The White House

It might be just another Thanksgiving for you, but for the Obamas, it’s their final turkey day in the White House.

First lady Michelle Obama’s Twitter feed shared a message of thanks Thursday, along with this throwback photo of the first family:

President Barack Obama finished his public Thanksgiving duties Wednesday, when he pardoned turkeys Tater and Tot during the traditional ceremony in the Rose Garden of the White House. He and the family later served meals at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, D.C..

The president called a handful of deployed service members Thursday morning to thank them for their service and share Thanksgiving wishes, according to a White House official.

8 Habits of Considerate People

2016-11-03-1478213220-62217-8HabitsofConsideratePeopleHP.jpg

Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once said, “Politeness is to human nature what warmth is to wax.” It’s true. Being kind and considerate softens people and makes them malleable to your way of thinking.

But I see another meaning there, too. I think he’s also saying that being considerate of others is an integral part of what it means to be human. Charles Darwin would have agreed. He argued that our instinct to be considerate is even stronger than our instinct to be self-serving.

As obvious as that may seem, it’s only recently that neuroscience has been able to explain why. Research conducted by Dacher Keltner at Berkeley showed that our brains react exactly the same when we see other people in pain as when we experience pain ourselves. Watching someone else experience pain also activates the structure deep inside the brain that’s responsible for nurturing behavior, called the periaqueductal gray.

Being considerate of others is certainly a good career move, but it’s also good for your health. When you show consideration for others, the brain’s reward center is triggered, which elevates the feel-good chemicals dopamine, oxytocin, and endogenous opioids. This gives you a great feeling, which is similar to what’s known as “runner’s high,” and all that oxytocin is good for your heart.

“Being considerate of others will take you further in life than any college or professional degree.” – Marian Wright Edelman

That’s all well and good, but how practical is it? How do you become more considerate when you have so many other things competing for your finite mental energy? It’s not that hard–all you have to do is emulate the habits of highly considerate people.

1. Show up on time. Sure, sometimes things happen, but always showing up late sends a very clear message that you think your time is more important than everyone else’s, and that’s just rude. Even if you really do think that your time is more important, you don’t have to broadcast that belief to the world. Instead, be considerate and show up when you said you would.

2. Be deliberately empathic. It’s one thing to feel empathy for other people, but putting that feeling into action is another matter entirely. It’s great to be able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes–in fact, it’s essential–but that doesn’t necessarily translate into being considerate. To be deliberately empathic, you have to let your ability to walk in their shoes change what you do, whether that’s changing your behavior to accommodate their feelings or providing tangible help in a tough situation. This requires emotional intelligence.

3. Apologize when you need to (and don’t when you don’t).
We all know people who are so insecure or so afraid of offending someone that they practically apologize for breathing. In such situations, apologizing loses its meaning. But it’s a different matter entirely when a sincere apology is really necessary. When you’ve made a mistake, or even think you’ve made a mistake, apologizing is a crucial part of being considerate.

4. Smile a lot. Physically, it’s easier to frown than to smile–smiling involves 42 different muscles; however, it pays to make the extra effort, as smiling has a huge effect on other people. People naturally (and unconsciously) mirror the body language of the person they’re talking to. When you smile at people, they will unconsciously return the favor and feel good as a result.

5. Mind your manners. A lot of people have come to believe that not only are manners unnecessary, they’re undesirable because they’re fake. These people think that being polite means you’re acting in a way that doesn’t reflect how you actually feel, but they’ve got it backwards. “Minding your manners” is all about focusing on how the other person feels, not on how you feel. It’s consciously acting in a way that puts other people at ease and makes them feel comfortable.

6. Be emotionally intelligent. One of the huge fallacies our culture has embraced is that feeling something is the same as acting on that feeling, and that’s just wrong, because there’s this little thing called self-control. Whether it’s helping out a co-worker when you’re in a crunch to meet your own deadline or continuing to be pleasant with someone who is failing to return the favor, being considerate often means not acting on what you feel.

7. Try to find a way for everybody to win. Many people approach life as a zero-sum game. They think that somebody has to win and somebody else has to lose. Considerate people, on the other hand, try to find a way for everybody to win. That’s not always possible, but it’s their goal. If you want to be more considerate, stop thinking of every interaction with others as a win/lose scenario.

8. Act on your intuition when it comes to other people’s needs.
Sometimes you can just tell when someone is upset or having a bad day. In such cases, being considerate means checking in with them to see if your intuition is correct. If your intuition is telling you to reach out–do it; they’ll appreciate your concern.

Bringing It All Together

Being considerate is good for your mental and physical health, your career, and everyone around you. On top of that, it just feels good.

What are some other ways to show consideration for others? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

How To Get Drunk The Healthy Way This Holiday Season

If I want to get drunk, but in as healthy a way as possible, what are the best beverages and strategies? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Greg Huang, Co-founder/CEO at drinkwel.com – the multivitamin for people who drink, on Quora:

Because of my company I’ve spent a lot of time learning about being healthier about including alcohol in my lifestyle. Here’s my top ten list for how to get drunk as healthily as possible:

  1. Avoid sugary mixers. Things like margarita mix, juice with high fructose corn syrup, and Red Bull are just as hard for your body to process as the alcohol itself. Not to mention, they’re bad for you. Try mixing your booze with water and fresh fruit juice (no sugar added). You’d be surprised what great drinks you can make without all that extra sugar.
  2. The clearer, the better. Vodka, gin, and light beer are much easier on your body (and lower in calories) than whiskey, bourbon, or red wine.
  3. Don’t mix. It’s hard on your stomach. It’s hard on your head. Mixing alcohol is never a good idea. Pick your drink of choice–and stick to it for the night. You’ll thank yourself the next day.
  4. Take a drinking break. Push yourself to go for an extended period (days, weeks, etc.) with no drinking at all. Your liver will appreciate the rest, and you might even see a decrease in your tolerance so you can drink less (and spend less!), but have just as much fun.
  5. Eat well the next day. If you feel hung over in the morning, try healthy breakfast options like eggs and fresh juice. Despite what you may have heard, greasy food won’t do anything to help you feel better the next day. There’s no such thing as “soaking” up the booze–your body has already processed the alcohol, and the grease will only leave you feeling more bloated. The best thing you can do for yourself is to eat foods that will help replenish the vitamins and minerals you’ve lost and put your body back on a healthy digestive cycle.
  6. Eat before you drink. Having a snack or a meal before your first beverage will help give your body the time it needs to process alcohol and aid in preventing nausea, headache, and an upset stomach. A little bit of starch or dairy goes a long way in coating your stomach lining and preparing your body for alcohol.
  7. Eat while you drink. We all get the drunk-munchies (and are guilty of downing pizza, or Jack in the Box or whatever else sounds delicious when you’re too drunk to think about calories). An excellent way to avoid these grievous choices, and help your body absorb the alcohol correctly, is to keep healthy snacks around while you’re drinking. That way, by the time you’re wasted, you’ll also be full.
  8. Drink water. Before, during, and after. Alcohol is a diuretic and causes dehydration. Have a glass of water in between drinks to keep yourself hydrated and help prevent those nasty dehydration side effects.
  9. Drink less. I know, I know, some people don’t want to hear this, but do yourself a favor, and try to have fewer drinks on those big nights out. Sometimes it’s just about saying no to that last shot of Patrón.
  10. Take your vitamins and minerals. Drinking depletes essential nutrients–make sure you’re feeding them to your system. It won’t do everything, but it will help.

Obama Has Some Issues With How The Media Is Covering The Election

“Do you mind if I just vent for a second?” President Barack Obama asked rally attendees in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

The president was pitching Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton when he told supporters he’s “frustrated” that the media has given credence to false equivalences between the two major-party candidates. 

“I’m just telling the truth,” he said.

Obama took issue with how news outlets have covered issues regarding transparency and questionable practices carried out by the candidates’ family foundations. He defended Clinton’s record by noting she has released “decades worth of her tax returns,” even though GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump hasn’t released any. 

“One candidate’s family foundation has saved countless lives around the world,” Obama said. “The other candidate’s foundation took money other people gave to his charity and then bought a 6-foot tall painting of himself.”

“He had the taste not to go for the 10-foot version,” Obama added, to laughs.

The president said the media has let Trump get away with misleading comments that would have led to a candidate’s undoing in past election seasons.

“Somehow, as things go on, because we’ve become so partisan, our standards for what’s normal have changed,” Obama said. “And Donald Trump says stuff every day that used to be considered as disqualifying for being president. And yet, because he says it over and over and over again, the press just gives up.”

The president referred to a recent incident in which NBC’s Matt Lauer allowed Trump to claim he was “totally against the war in Iraq” ― a demonstrably false comment ― without pushing back. It’s a lie Trump has made repeatedly on the campaign trail, and reporters for many media outlets faulted Lauer for his shortcomings.

Obama has a point: Trump has made many comments that would have ruined presidential candidates before him. Democrats have posited that expectations have been set so low for Trump that he has been held to an entirely different standard than other presidential hopefuls. 

“The bottom line is that we cannot afford suddenly to treat this like a reality show,” Obama said. “We can’t afford to act as if there’s some equivalence here.” 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

I’m A Failure!

During my career in Academia, I have noticed an unhealthy trend among students. It’s not drinking or the latest designer drug, but it can be more harmful than both. The trend is the obsessively self-critical thinking that happens when students do something that doesn’t go “right”. They fall into the judgmental trap of thinking they are a failure or something is wrong with them.

We, as a society, are taught from an early age that being hard on ourselves is the only way to make things better… or make us better. We are taught that being self-critical is the driving factor for success.

There is a side effect to this kind of thinking. As students find out that they are not the best in class, or that the projects they created don’t receive the applause they think they deserve, many immediately turn to an obsessive, self-critical way of thinking. They bash themselves and judge themselves negatively. As a result, students become more stressed out, feel insecure, become depressed, and question their own self-worth. If not addressed early on, this kind of thinking can make the college experience a miserable time for any student.

There is a way to fix this kind of thinking, but few talk about it. One of the greatest keys to being successful in life and eliminating obsessive self-criticism is having Mindful Self-Compassion. Yep, that’s right. Compassion for your “self.”

Wait, what? Self-compassion? I know, it sounds somewhat odd to say out loud, but rarely do we consider showing ourselves kindness. We often show friends more caring and compassion than we show ourself. We’ve been trained to be self-critical and self-judgmental. Self-compassion goes against the natural order… or so many think. Some even think that if we are self-compassionate, we are being lazy and complacent.

But research has found that self-criticism only sabotages us and produces a variety of negative consequences. According to Kristin Neff, Ph.D., Associate Professor in human development at the University of Texas at Austin, self-criticism can lead to lowered self-esteem, anxiety and depression. Mindful self-compassion, on the other hand, can lead to greater understanding and peace of mind… and yes, personal and professional success.

So what is “Mindful Self-Compassion”? Actually, it’s quite simple. It can be broken down into three parts.

1. Mindfulness: Mindfulness is about slowing your mind down to become aware of what you are thinking or doing in the present moment. It involves turning off your autopilot response and noticing what is going on, meaning that you pay attention to your thoughts and feelings without attaching any judgment to them.

Being mindful creates a distance between your thoughts or experiences and your reaction to them. It’s almost like observing your thoughts in the third person. You become aware of your thoughts and just notice what’s going on… you don’t sweep them under the rug and you don’t need to obsess about them either. You become aware, make a nonjudgmental note about the thought, (i.e. “There’s Mr. Negative again”.), tell yourself you’re okay, let the thought go, and return to the present moment.

Being mindful of self-critical thoughts will help you to be more objective about any emotions that may try to hitch a ride.

2. Self-kindness: Accept that it is okay to be kind, gentle and understanding with yourself when you’re suffering.

It’s easy to be loving and kind to our friends. It’s time you do the same for yourself. If you mess up on a test, don’t beat yourself up. Think about why you did badly, then plan on studying more next time or find a tutor. People don’t think your project or assignment is the best? So what. You are learning, and making mistakes is part of that process. Take the criticism as tips on how to do better next time. Accept that you aren’t going to be perfect… no one is. Frankly, I don’t know anyone who is “perfect”… and those who think they are fall into the “ego-maniac” category. That’s not where you want to be.

3. Common humanity: Recognize that you are not alone in the self-criticism struggle. We are all struggling. We often think we’re the only ones to make mistakes, feel rejected or fail. Guess what? We all have these experiences; it’s part of being human. We tend not to discuss our struggles, but if you share your experience with others, I bet you’ll find that they have felt the same way at some point. You are not alone. Talking about it may help to negate the power of negative self-talk and criticism.

I know… it’s easier said than done. When you are stuck in a self-criticism rut, try the following mindful self-compassion exercise:

▪ Sit somewhere quiet and pay attention to your breath going in and out of your nose or mouth. Notice how your breath feels as it enters and exits. Stay focused on this for a couple of minutes and then repeat to yourself, “May I be kind to myself, may I know that I am a good person, may I be at peace, may I know that all is well.” Do this for two or more minutes when you feel the negative thoughts creeping in.

This exercise will slow down your thoughts, help train your mind to let go of negative self-talk, and accept that you are okay. For more exercises on gaining mindful self-compassion for yourself, check out the meditations here:

A couple notes for the nay-sayers:

1. Self-compassion is not self-pitying.
Self-pity is being obsessed and immersed in your own problems and forgetting that others struggle, too. Self-compassion is much different. Being self-compassionate is seeing things as they are –while not giving critical self-talk power. Self-compassion focuses on alleviating suffering while self-pity leaves you rolling in self-loathing.

2. Self-criticism is not an effective motivator.
Challenging yourself, recognizing weaknesses and growing from them are productive. However, there’s actually nothing productive or motivating about criticizing yourself. When you criticize yourself you are creating fear of failure and you may wind up losing faith in yourself. Even if you do achieve great things, you’re often miserable because you live in a world of self-loathing and criticism. That doesn’t sound like a very happy world.

I wish you the best. Be kind to yourself!

The ‘Weird Childhood Fears’ Hashtag Will Haunt You Even As An Adult

We’re all afraid of something: heights, the ocean, clowns. But when we’re little, those fears ― whether big, small or in some cases, totally weird ― feel so much more debilitating.

Whether it was monsters under the bed or falling through a sidewalk grate, the sometimes irrational but very real fears that come with being a kid are equal parts hilarious and universal in retrospect.

Perhaps that relatable nature is what prompted the trending #WeirdChildhoodFears hashtag, which has inspired users to share their deepest, darkest childhood scaries.

Check out some of our favorites below, and take solace in the fact that, just like you, we totally still sleep with the covers shielding our feet from monsters.

Dear Actor (Or Artist Of Any Kind), What You Do Is Invaluable

2016-09-06-1473172758-6877911-IMG_5564.jpg
Dear Actor,

What you do is invaluable. Remember that.

I write this as an actor who is now a therapist, and loves it, and who works with a lot of actors, each of whom is unique but also very much like you: They know how to use themselves creatively, effectively, and meaningfully in every area of their lives.

Now by “what you do,” I mean the craft of acting, not the business. The craft expands our creative capacities, while the business forces us to only think in twos: in versus out, union versus nonunion, etc. In short, we are shown a hard line between being an actor and not being one.

Fortunately the craft part of you does not think in twos, but in multiplicity and possibility. Your craft precedes your awareness of the business, and begins with a sincere interest in what makes each of us tick. You observe how we differ, and discover common threads linking us together. You get acquainted with yourself as you are, and then explore who you might become, experimenting with the way you talk and walk, and imagining unimaginable dilemmas, and calling upon humor, desire, charisma, fear, authority, rage, grief, despair, bravery, and various other natural resources from deep within yourself that may not have been readily available to you in life as you have known it. And you use them all to tell evocative stories–both about you and about people who seem very different from you on the surface.

Your endless mission then–no matter how you make a living–is to develop your own voice while at the same time breathing life into the multifarious voices of other people.

And in that sense, being an actor is no different from being a therapist, or writer, or friend, or a range of other roles in life that require empathy, and versatility, and openness.

But then there’s that tricky word: career.

Do you need to make your entire living each year from paid, union gigs to call what you do a career? Do you need to qualify for the SAG pension plan or be a household name in order to call what you do a career?

What about my friends who write plays and perform them in parks and warehouses, and sharpen their skills doing readings and web series? Do they not have acting careers because they work 9-to-5 in order to have health insurance? What about my aunt, the psychiatric nurse, who has consistently performed as an actor in NYC and in small towns, on Equity stages and community theaters, in industrials for which she was paid and student films for which she was not–and who uses her performance skills to great empathic effect with her patients? Does she not have an acting career because she makes the bulk of her living as a nurse and doesn’t audition for pilot season?

It’s time to reclaim what it means to be an actor. What we have learned about committing to emotions and expanding empathy, and using our voices to become many great things, is too precious to be taken from us by a reductive industry that capitalizes on trendy stereotypes.

Now, whenever art and industry collide (however rarely), we should certainly applaud. And of course we should celebrate any employment opportunity we are able to earn as artists.

But we must also use words like career to describe the myriad ways we practice the art that we love, live, and breathe. And not only when we are lucky enough to star on a show that everyone’s mother will hear about, but whenever we get to be listeners, healers, lovers, leaders, activists, creators, and storytellers in every facet of our lives.

When I reflect on the disparate voyage of my life–from being an actor, to producing theater, to social activism, to becoming a therapist, writer, and public speaker–it feels like one career, rooted in the art of acting.

After all one of our greatest abilities is to make meaning out of lives that don’t play out exactly as we expect. No matter the circumstances of our scripts, we search deep to make our characters lives make sense. We can do the same for our own.

So, however you practice your craft, please remember that you are an actor.

My Depression Is A Gift

Trigger warning

International Relations class, 2006. The teacher’s assistant is drawing a diagram to explain anarchy on the board. I’m half paying attention, half thinking about the anarchy going on in my own mind.

“Anarchy means there are no rules,” she says. At that moment I decide to be done with the rules.

I’ve struggled with depression since high school, a hyper-competitive all-girls boarding school in Connecticut. Sometime during my freshman year, I began fixating on an endless loop of thoughts that I was never interesting enough, smart enough, pretty enough, popular enough. That loop never stopped cranking.

I became convinced my mediocrity and awkwardness kept me from relishing what were supposed to be the most joyful, formative and carefree years of my life. At night, driving around with my friends after we first got our licenses, I would stare out the window reminding myself how not-good-enough I was while they smoked cigarettes and sang along with the new Strokes album.

I used my self-doubt to catapult myself forward. I set perpetually unrealistic expectations, ones I would inevitably never meet. I never stopped chasing after those high standards, desperately hoping that one day I might prove myself wrong. I got straight As, sang in the all-state choir, starred in school plays, won awards for my writing.

I shrugged off my achievements, paradoxically assuming they were a given, and focused incessantly instead on my inadequacies. I was a terrible athlete, had trouble focusing in class, couldn’t get certain boys to pay attention to me during sweaty school dances. I expected everything of myself, which pretty much guaranteed I would always fall short, find yet another reason to despise my existence.

I got into my first-choice college, Northwestern University, and off I went to Chicago, where my affliction followed me. To the rest of the world, I could have been on the cover of a glossy fundraising magazine. And just like in high school, I usually felt okay enough to convince everyone around me that at my core, I was an enthusiastic, spontaneous, charismatic young woman.

It was true that I could be all of those things, and that I experienced moments of happiness. The flame of self-hate that burned deep inside was rarely stoked into a full-blown wildfire.

But sometimes, the world around me, with all its highs and lows and nuance and beauty, would completely disappear. The high-functioning social butterfly would be crippled, shoved back into a cocoon full of her failures, immobilized for hours or even days at a time. During those moments, I would only know the darkest corners of myself.

But sometimes, the world around me, with all its highs and lows and nuance and beauty, would completely disappear. During those moments, I would only know the darkest corners of myself.

That darkness reached a crescendo that afternoon in International Relations class. I knew my roommates would be at an event for our sorority that evening. I told them I had a sore throat and couldn’t make it. I went to the drugstore and bought a bottle of Tylenol PM.

I still remember walking home in the dark, wondering if I’d be accepted into a prestigious writing seminar I’d applied to the night before. I reminded myself that soon the seminar, along with everything else, would be irrelevant. I felt that overwhelming relief again.

The last thing I can recall from that night is yanking a sheet of paper out of my journal to write “I’m sorry” to everyone I loved, and then leaning over the side of my bed to throw up.

Estimates show that one in 12 college students makes some kind of suicide plan. The National Institute of Mental Health pegs depression as the most common medical health problem for college students. Those students are part of a group of roughly 350 million human beings worldwide who struggle with depression.

“It is not pleasant to experience decay, to find yourself exposed to the ravages of an almost daily rain, and to know that you are turning into something feeble,” the author Andrew Solomon, who has struggled with depression his entire adult life, writes in his Pulitzer Prize-finalist book The Noonday Demon. “That more and more of you will blow off with the first strong wind, making you less and less.”

Depression is an ugly, selfish, all-consuming disease. It’s the worst kind of vicious cycle. You feel guilty because you don’t actually have anything tangible to be sad about. That paralyzing guilt makes you feel even more depressed. You alienate those closest to you because you don’t want to bother them with your pain, even though you need them more than ever.

According to Solomon, fewer than half of people with depression receive any kind of treatment, and fewer than half of those individuals find it effective. The mind is an ever-changing enigma that can be impossible to regulate. Emotions come and go in a nebulous, uncontrollable swirl.

Depression is an ugly, selfish, all-consuming disease. It’s the worst kind of vicious cycle.

During joyful moments, it’s extraordinarily difficult to empathize with your depressed self.

During depressive episodes, you can’t remember ever experiencing true happiness or imagine ever feeling it again.

Many doctors like to compare an antidepressant regimen to a diabetic regulating their blood sugar levels. “You wouldn’t just stop taking your insulin because you feel better,” they say. “Why would you stop taking pills that help your mood?”

But it’s not so simple. Diabetes and other physical ailments are largely quantifiable. Consciousness, on the other hand, is a labyrinth of mysteries and malleable feelings. We can only ever consciously acknowledge a tiny sample of the deep complexities baked into our brains. You can’t measure an antidepressant’s effectiveness with a ruler or scale.

Instead, you rely on various cocktails of pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements and exercise routines, tracking incremental changes with the same imprecise mind that got you feeling depressed in the first place. Using the depressed mind as a tool to rewire itself can feel like an impossible feat.

I’ve heard the only true cure for depression is a deep and profound sense of self love. In order to achieve that, you must train yourself to love every part of yourself, darkness and all. But how can you love something you’re so desperate to change? How can you use that love as a weapon to extinguish the very thing you are training yourself to love?

I awoke the morning after my overdose in a hospital bed, a catheter shoved up inside me, a stomach full of charcoal. My roommates had found me unconscious and called 911. Over the next few days, they paraded, traumatized, through the hospital, flowers and teddy bears and inspirational books in hand. I lay there in a numb trance, unable to process the gravity of what I had done.

I spent a week in a rehab center where they took away my sharp objects and walked with me to the bathroom every time I had to pee and checked on me once an hour while I slept. My parents spent a small fortune on bipolar tests and psychiatric evaluations and came away with a diagnosis of generalized depression punctuated by a tendency to overthink things.

I dropped out of school and moved back into my dad’s house, the house I grew up in. I started taking Lexapro. I listened to Thich Nhat Hahn meditation podcasts and read mindfulness books by Pema Chodron. I did yoga every day.

I got into that writing seminar but declined. Instead, I enrolled in an intensive group therapy program, where I realized that other people, grandparents and teenagers, poor and rich, gay and straight, black and white, suffer from the same shit that I do.

I had long conversations with my father, learning that depression is deeply embedded in the roots of our family tree. He told me about my great-great uncle, who shot himself after immigrating to the United States from Eastern Europe. He recounted how depression had played out in his own life, how he suffered a severe bout of it during my early teens and could barely get out of bed. How he kept himself moving forward only for my brother and me.

I discovered that medication can actually work, that brain chemicals can be regulated, that I didn’t have to feel the way I’d felt my whole life. Antidepressants weren’t a cure-all, but they helped keep my toxic thoughts at a safe distance, especially when augmented by yoga and psychotherapy and patient loved ones.

I discovered that medication can actually work, that brain chemicals can be regulated, that I didn’t have to feel the way I’d felt my whole life.

Depression began to feel like a manageable challenge rather than an untamed beast. I had power over it, and not vice versa.

Midway through my group therapy program, one of our participants jumped off a highway overpass at rush hour and died. She had spent the last session talking about how she was a bad mother because she let her young sons watch too much television.

The weight of what I had done to myself, how I’d come so close to giving up everything, finally overtook me. I vowed to get well enough to return to school.

___

I managed to graduate from Northwestern almost-on-time, walking across the stage in my bright purple cap and gown with the rest of my class. I landed an internship at San Francisco magazine and moved west.

I spent the next decade managing my depression in a way that one might manage any other commitment in their life. I still had bouts of self-doubt, some stronger than others, but each time I felt like crawling back into that failure cocoon I would recover after a couple days. I glided through a motley lineup of therapists, to each of whom I recited the story of my suicide attempt and my familiar array of issues.

It almost started to feel like any other hobby, hanging out with those therapists. There was the Argentine woman with braces and a formal handshake who told me in her clipped accent that low self-esteem was nothing but a crutch. The hip young surfer chick whom I would have rather been friends with. The awkward social work student who saw me on a sliding-scale fee after I quit my to work, unpaid, for a political campaign. The grandmotherly lady who fell asleep, sitting up, during multiple sessions.

I still worried constantly about a whole assortment of things: my performance at work, money, finding true love, my social life. I struggled with substance abuse and dated a some guys who didn’t treat me that well. I felt like my professional success was more of a result of my inimitable bullshitting skills than talent and dedication. But I was moving forward without having to fumble through long periods of darkness.

Lexapro made me perpetually tired and a couple dozen pounds heavier. Sometimes I would go to bed at 7pm and not wake up until the next morning. My friends teased me for falling asleep in the middle of parties, for flaking on plans because I was “busy” and knowing that I was actually passed out on the couch.

Eventually, I decided to switch medications to one with fewer side effects that had worked well for my dad. I didn’t have good mental health insurance, so I went to a fluorescent-lit, linoleum-floored walk-in clinic in the basement of a community center.

Schizophrenic homeless people stumbled around the waiting room, and the dial-a-psychiatrist spent five minutes sizing me up before he wrote me a prescription for the new pills. On the way out, he asked me why someone so pretty and successful would ever be depressed.

___

Right around my 30th birthday, I quit my job as deputy national editor of The Huffington Post and moved to Latin America alone. I was burned out from five years in a fast-paced newsroom and dreamt of “seeing the world with my eyes, and not through my computer screen,” as I frequently put it.

I took a three-month supply of antidepressants with me. On the way down, they were stolen out of my checked luggage. In broken Spanish, I tried to find a doctor who would re-prescribe them to me, but I soon discovered they didn’t manufacture that brand outside the U.S. A friend managed to smuggle me some when she met up with me a few weeks later.

Taking the pills while I traveled grew from a minor annoyance into a chore, then into a chore that didn’t feel like it was worth dealing with. But each time someone came to visit me, I made sure they’d bring a new supply so I’d never run out.

My travels eventually brought me down to Panama, to environmental research institute in the middle of the jungle, where I decided to stay and open up a journalism school. I got an apartment in a colonial neighborhood in Panama City, splitting my time between there and a tent on open-air platform in the jungle.

I discovered I loved teaching. I made tons of interesting new friends. I fell in love with a smart, funny and handsome guy who treated me better than anyone from my prior relationships. I was exhilarated, living in a neon tropical euphoria, ideas and inspiration constantly searing through my mind.

I didn’t know what to make of all the happiness chemicals. Is this what life could actually feel like? It was nothing I’d ever experienced before. What was the catch?

Along the way, my final bottle of antidepressants diminished and then ran out completely. I decided not to refill it. What the heck, I thought. I’m feeling better than I ever have in my life. I don’t need these anymore. I threw the empty bottle in the trash and proudly told my friends and family that I’d conquered my depression once and for all.

___

Depression is a sneaky villain, one that slowly creeps back into your consciousness, footprint by footprint. One day you feel down on yourself and the next day you feel fine. Then the darkness comes back more forcefully and you’re hanging out in bed a little longer. Then a few days go by and you realize you haven’t had any positive thoughts. Then all your favorite activities start to feel like obligations and all your obligations start to feel like insurmountable burdens.

You start measuring your days based on when you can take a nap. You make up reasons to yell at your boyfriend. You dread daylight because it means you can’t hide in your room (or on your open-air jungle platform). Then your flip-flop breaks on a cobblestone street and you double over onto the nearest stoop in a fit of tears. The thought of buying a new pair of shoes feels as impossible as summiting Kilimanjaro.

One day you feel down on yourself and the next day you feel fine. Then the darkness comes back more forcefully and you’re hanging out in bed a little longer. Then a few days go by and you realize you haven’t had any positive thoughts.

I started taking my medication again right around the broken sandal incident. I waited for it to start working again. And I waited. And waited.

In the meantime, I had 12 journalism students hungry for my leadership. I threw myself into my curriculum, guiding them between Panama City and the jungle, devising creative field trips and workshops and lesson plans. I used my work to mask the unyielding anxiety that had set up camp inside my body.

The smallest things would send my mood plummeting down an icy black diamond ski slope: a student forgetting to turn in an assignment, a news article I’d missed, hearing about someone else’s success. I started fights with my boyfriend daily. I felt tired and drained 100 percent of the time.

___

One morning, leading a lecture on the power of storytelling, I fantasized about what my own life story would look like if I ended it with flair. I would leave a legacy. Foundations would be named in my honor. And most importantly, I would never have to suffer again.

When I got home, I crept upstairs and peeked over the balcony’s edge. A cheerful, languid Latin American afternoon unfolded below. A stray dog wandered past a pair of giggling tourists, a young mother balanced her baby on her hip, reggaeton blared out the window of a passing taxi. I felt so disconnected I may as well have been watching a movie.

I inched myself further toward the railing and took a deep breath. Then I sprinted downstairs and into my bedroom, nose-diving onto my bed, burying my face between the pillow and the mattress, shaking, using that little dark space to muffle my sobs.

One of our most important rules for students in the jungle is to “toughen the fuck up.” You can learn how to power your way through a monsoon-like rainstorm, or homesickness, or digging a trench in the mud, or discovering that a family of fire ants had made a comfortable home inside your half-eaten jar of peanut butter.

So I felt the opposite of tough when I realized my depression had ballooned into something I could no longer handle myself. That it was controlling me instead of me controlling it.

I felt the opposite of tough when I realized my depression had ballooned into something I could no longer handle myself. That it was controlling me instead of me controlling it.

With the support of my boyfriend and coworkers, I decided to return to the United States shortly before the semester ended to find some real, professional help. I felt like a failure for leaving my students behind with such a short time left in a program I’d poured my soul into designing from scratch. For leaving my community behind. For returning to the safe and loving four walls of my dad’s house, once more, just as I had in college.

I’ve been back in the U.S. for about a month now, and I’ve come to discover that asking for help when I needed it actually was my version of “toughening the fuck up.” I’m testing out a new medication regimen, after learning from my doctor that abruptly going off my antidepressants meant my body had built up an immunity to them. I’m doing yoga and meditating and journaling and spending quality time with people I care about. I’m working remotely and networking and reigniting the girlboss inside me.

Slowly but surely, my depression is lifting, just as it did a decade ago. It’s beginning to feel like something I have control over again. My life has purpose. Giving myself time to heal has allowed me to rediscover strength, compassion, resilience and self-love. I probably won’t return to Panama, but the loss of that opportunity means there’s space for a new one.

I recently had dinner with one of my mentors, a woman who runs the yoga studio I went to growing up. She used to suffer from a debilitating form of depression that left her hospitalized for much of her adult life until she reached middle age. A regular yoga practice helped her to recover. Now, she brings yoga into schools and prisons and marginalized areas in the hopes that other people who struggle might find similar relief.

I recounted my story for her, and she reminded me that my life  –  that any life  –  is extraordinary if you allow it to be. That I deserved to get myself back to a place where I truly believed that. Then she told me something I’ll never forget.

“Your depression is a gift,” she said. “For the rest of your life, you will be able to deeply understand the suffering and pain of others. Use that. Help them realize they’re not alone.”

I’ve been wanting to write publicly about my depression, my flirtations with suicide, the harsh storms that have blustered through the arc of my life, for many years. Until now I’ve been too afraid to share my story. I didn’t want to be pegged as that “depression girl” if someone were to Google me before a job interview or a first date.

But the more I talk openly about my struggles, the more I realize that my story is not unique. I’ve met so many people who walk around every day like I so often do, smiles slapped across their faces, crippled by a scalding pain on the inside. They’re ashamed to talk about it and even more ashamed to ask for help.

The more I talk openly about my struggles, the more I realize that my story is not unique.

Maybe someday we’ll all be less afraid to share our stories with one another. Maybe we will feel a little less alone when we find each other. Maybe, as we continue to talk about it, some of the stigma around mental health will begin to dissolve.

Maybe even one person will read what I have to say and feel a tiny bit better. Maybe she’ll start to understand that she’s not on this journey by herself. That help is out there if she can bring herself to ask for it. That she might be battling depression, but she’s winning the battle simply by waking up each morning and continuing to live her life.

That she, like me, is a survivor.

Note: If reading my story makes you want to share your own, please write to me on Facebook. I would love to hear from you.

If you or someone you know needs help, please call 1-800-273-8255 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. If you are outside of the U.S., please visit the International Association for Suicide Prevention for a database of international resources.

Soak The Poor

In the fantasy world known as political discourse, taxes are higher on the wealthy. Single filers making up to $ 9,275 pay a federal income tax of 10 percent, up to $ 37,650 pay 15 percent, up to $ 91,150 pay 25 percent, up to $ 190,150 pay 28 percent, up to $ 413,350 pay 33 percent, up to $ 415,050 pay 35 percent, and beyond pay 39.6 percent. State income taxes broadly track these brackets.

The idea behind these increasing, or progressive, tax rates is that the rich can afford more in absolute dollars than can the poor. For someone making $ 25,000 per year, $ 3,750 just as big of a pocketbook hit, if not greater, as $ 396,000 is for someone making $ 1 million per year. After all, the million-dollar earner has $ 604,000 in his pocket after taxes, while the $ 25,000-earner has merely $ 21,250 to hopefully make ends meet. (P.S. It’s not happening.)

Income tax rates, easy to understand and oft-debated, are but a small part of the tax picture. When you zoom out to see the total burden on poor versus rich, the unavoidable fact is that the poor are taxed at a far higher rate. Call them taxes, call them fees, call them whatever you want. We’re soaking the poor.

Of formal taxes, the most regressive, i.e., hardest on the poor relative to the rich, is the sales tax. Relatively speaking, the expenditure level by people from different income strata on food, gas, and other sales tax-affected goods is pretty even. Everybody’s got to eat and fill up their tank. But because the poor have less money coming in, sales tax hits them hardest. The poorest Americans spend about 11 percent of their money on sales taxes, while the wealthiest spend about 5.4 percent.That’s regressive taxation.

Local public works measures are probably soaking the poor in your hometown right now. Think, for example, of a civic auditorium renovation that is paid for by a restaurant tax. Who goes to a civic auditorium to see the latest off-Broadway touring play? Generally, the wealthy. Who goes to restaurants? Everybody. Effectively, it’s a transfer of benefits from the poor to the rich.

The lottery has gained favor in 44 states, generating $ 17.6 billion as of 2009. It’s shamefully regressive. We’re all susceptible to foolish bets, but when you have a big bank account, $ 20 is nothing. When you’re poor, $ 20 is a family dinner that you can’t afford to throw out the window. States, rather than protecting their citizens from base impulses or at least remaining neutral, have seized upon their citizens’ foibles for revenue. A recent study shows that 60 percent of lottery tickets are purchased by people with very low incomes, and these people disproportionately play for money, not amusement. No matter where the revenues go, when you disproportionately prey upon the poor, you’re exacting a regressive tax.

Perhaps the most insidious poor tax of all is the one that is most seldom categorized as a tax. It’s not collected by the government, and it’s not the product of legislation. Rather, it’s the product of capitalism. I’m talking about the higher rate the poor person pays for a loan. The lower rate the poor person gets for investing $ 1,000 in a bank account versus $ 1 million. The inferior education his child gets at his bad school because he and his neighbors don’t have the income to buy a better one. Her longer commute from the cheaper neighborhood 20 minutes away, which makes her late to renew her tags, which costs her $ 35 in penalties, with more gas cost to boot. Daily life is more expensive for the poor. Quantify it, and you’ll see the most regressive tax of all.

It’s possible for a regressive tax to be worth the burden it places on the poor. Taxes on alcohol, tobacco, and fuel, for example, are often defended for their net benefits to society, despite their regressive nature. If you don’t want people to drink, smoke, or drive, you may think it’s justified to tax those underlying goods to death. Tolls are regressive, but less so than the principal alternative, sales taxes for road improvements.

Perhaps certain regressive taxes are fine. Perhaps all of them are, if we’re consciously balancing them against our progressive income tax code. Problem is, we’re almost completely oblivious to the regressive aspects of our tax system.

If we’re going to have such a broad array of explicit and hidden taxes on the poor, we owe it to ourselves to speak honestly about them. This political season, when you hear about big sales-tax-funded public works, scholarship lotteries, tax reform, or, heaven forbid, the “free-riding poor,” don’t merely think about federal income tax brackets. Instead, think deeper about the hidden, regressive taxes that make our society less equal, bypass the rich, and soak the poor.

Why You Should Form Hobbies Instead Of Habits

2016-07-08-1468003925-9767106-UO4VC2M9HPEdited.jpg

Four or so years ago, I was enticed to join a Crossfit gym. Before then, I’d had no habit of working out. While I’d played sports growing up and could comfortably run 3 miles and knew how to do a proper push-up, I’d never really spent time learning about exercising or trying to work out for any particular goal. I was the one going to the gym a few times a week or less, running on a treadmill and doing sit-ups in the corner – making little progress and learning nothing.

After a couple of months of Crossfit (where I’d only been going twice a week) I started to notice something: progress. I was sore regularly, I noticed muscles forming, I was able to lift heavier than when I’d started. A few more months went by and I signed up to compete in local events – both for fun and to push my strength further than I already knew it could go.

As more time went on, I found myself picking up new physically challenging hobbies that I’d never really done before – yoga, cycling, running, calisthenics. Eventually, after years of working toward a goal I’d never initially set for myself, it appeared that a single hobby had led to a well-rounded healthy lifestyle habit.

At the beginning, the number of days or the amount of time I would spend working out was not much different from my uninspired few-times-a-week gym-going days. The difference was in the amount I was learning each time I went. It was always a new experience – new movements, new muscles I’d never noticed before, new strength – and I always wanted to continue learning more.

It finally took four years to realize that what got me to this point wasn’t from an initial habit, it was from a hobby that became a habit.

***

Too often we look at habits as though they’re a mechanical reflex formed from repetition – that doing the same thing every day for a few weeks will automate our bodies to eat healthier, to read more books, or to exercise more often.

Even when we’d like to learn a new skill or improve upon an existing one, we often look to start a habit as the first step: we try to get into the habit of practicing a language, we try to get into the habit of running, we try to get into the habit of meditating.

But “getting into a habit” isn’t satisfying, nor is it engaging, which are perhaps the reasons why we’re more likely to fail at forming the habits we want to have.

It’s certainly true that there are activities that benefit from habit: waking up at the same hour each day, drinking water regularly, cleaning your house. These are knee-jerk reactions that, over time, can be formed and you’ll (probably) be better off for having formed them.

But there’s also a negative side to habits that is a result of not having hobbies: eating out of boredom, spending hours online, watching too much TV, drinking or going out every night of the week. If instead you focused on having hobbies, perhaps the good habits you’ve always wanted to have would simply follow as a result.

With hobbies, you may think you haven’t set a goal for yourself or that you’re just “trying something new”, but the goal naturally becomes completing the activity, and the reward is the activity itself. Habits, on the other hand, are bound by goals that are more difficult to achieve – like their seeming necessity to be automatic and repeated routinely – which may in turn make you feel dissatisfied or unhappy with your progress.

The mental state of flow is also more likely to occur when performing hobbies – and you want to get into flow. Flow is when you enter a state of effortless concentration and enjoyment – where goals become clearer, the challenge is neither too easy nor too difficult, and the effort is itself the reward. In fact, psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi found that flow occurred more often in hobbies and even more in sports, than in regularly habitual activities:

“Leisure time in our society is occupied by three major sorts of activities: media consumption, conversation, and active leisure – such as hobbies, making music, going to restaurants and movies, sports, and exercise. Not all of these free-time activities are the same in their potential for flow. For example, U.S.teenagers experience flow about 13% of the time that they spend watching television, 34% of the time they do hobbies, and 44% of the time they are involved in sports and games. Yet these same teenagers spend at least four times more of their free hours watching TV than doing hobbies or sports.”

Habits, by nature, are easier and more accessible, and humans are lazy creatures with greater willingness to do what requires the least amount of effort. By contrast, hobbies require effort– and this effort becomes its own reward.

However, when hobbies then become habit (like I suggest mine have over time) it’s arguable that these hobbies may become less worthy of flow. When this does happen, it could be time to engage in a new hobby, or to reach for new heights of existing hobbies. This could explain, for example, why I moved from Crossfit into other physically challenging hobbies that I’d never tried before.

Stanford psychologist and leading researcher in the field of motivation, Carol Dweck, suggests that effort is a necessary part of a meaningful life:

“Effort is one of the things that gives meaning to life. Effort means you care about something, that something is important to you and you are willing to work for it. It would be an impoverished existence if you were not willing to value things and commit yourself to working toward them.”

Hobbies which require more of my effort, focus, and engagement, which put me into a state of flow where I’m neither too challenged nor too bored, are not always the hobbies I do everyday. In fact, I more often achieve flow during activities that are new or slightly different than usual, activities that I know I can do but require a different sort of effort and focus.

So, if you want a change, consider looking at a different starting point:

  • If you want to get into the habit of eating healthier, why not spend time learning about cooking and trying new recipes?

  • If you want to get into the habit of exercising, why not join a pseudo-fitness group that feels less like exercise and more like fun?

  • If you want to get into the habit of reading more books, why not start a book club with your friends?

  • If you want to get into the habit of practicing a language, why not start watching and learning about foreign films?

  • If you want to get into the habit of waking up earlier, why not join a morning hiking club?

Instead of beginning with a habit, begin with a hobby.

Craft Beer Isn’t As Healthy As It Sounds, But There’s Still Some Good News

Craft beer often features funky labels, quirky descriptions and creative ingredients. But while it might look healthier than mass-produced brews, the real way to select the healthiest option is by taking stock of what’s inside the can.

Some alcohol manufacturers voluntarily provide nutrition facts on their labeling, though the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau doesn’t require it, which can make it difficult to compare beers’ nutritional value (or lack thereof). 

But first things first. The Brewers Association defines American craft beer as produced by an independently owned brewery in small quantities (6 million or fewer barrels each year) and using traditional brewing methods. In practice, though, what many of us refer to as craft beers are trendy beer styles such as session IPAs, fruit-fruit flavored sour beers and hard ciders. 

Big Beer still rules the market, with AB InBev and MillerCoors controlling 72 percent of beer sales, according to Business Insider. But after eight years of consecutive double-digit growth, craft brewers reported a 13 percent increase in volume in 2015

Beer isn’t a health food, but it does have health benefits?

Both mass-produced and small-batch beer contains selenium, B vitamins, phosphorus, folate and niacin, as well as protein and fiber. It’s also one of the few dietary sources of silicon, which can help prevent osteoporosis, according to NPR. 

“Beers containing high levels of malted barley and hops are richest in silicon,” Dr. Brunilda Nazario, associate medical director at WebMD, told The Huffington Post. And while it might seem like mass-produced beers would be lower in nutrients than their small-batch counterparts, that’s not the case, according to Charlie Bamforth, a professor of brewing science at the University of California Davis. He told NPR that even the big beers are largely made with natural grain-based sugars and few additives

A “common myth about beer is that it’s loaded with calories and is the cause of the so-called ‘beer belly,’” Nazario added. “But when comparing calories for different foods and drinks, there’s no scientific evidence or basis for beer causing abdominal obesity when consumed in moderation.”

Before you reach for that IPA, check its ABV

Of course, you shouldn’t start drinking beer for the health benefits. Regardless of what type of beer you choose, consuming alcohol means adding calories to your diet. And while we don’t advocate for calorie counting just for the sake of calorie counting, consuming too many alcoholic beverages can easily put a dent in an otherwise healthy lifestyle. 

One important factor to note when choosing a beer is average alcohol volume, or ABV. While the average ABV for craft beers is only slightly higher than it is for beer overall ― 5.9 percent ABV compared to 5 percent ABV ― certain beer styles can contain two, or even three, times as much alcohol as the average brew. For example, Dogfish Head’s 120 Minute IPA has an ABV between 15 and 20 percent.

ABV is the most important factor to look for because beers with higher ABVs are typically higher in calories, Kelly Hogan, clinical nutrition coordinator at the Dubin Breast Center of the Tisch Cancer Institute of Mount Sinai Hospital, told HuffPost.

“Every gram of alcohol contains about 7 calories,” Hogan explained. “The more alcohol in a beer, the more calories it will likely contain.” And since alcohol inhibits decision making, you may be more likely to reach for that slice of pizza or cheese fries if you are consuming higher amounts of alcohol.  

“Drinking responsibly should include being aware of the ABV,” Nazario said. “On one end of the spectrum you’ll find beers such as an American lager or barrel-aged beer. These tend to have the some of the lowest content of alcohol. But on the other end are many of the specialty beers or American barley or wheat wine beer and ale.”

The danger of not paying attention to ABV is unknowingly consuming as much alcohol in one beer as you might normally consume in two or three. In addition to the short-term risks of overindulging, like alcohol poisoning, drinking too much over time can cause serious long-term health problems, including cancer, depression and alcoholism. 

Light-colored beer isn’t necessarily less alcoholic

“Hoppy beers like IPAs typically contain more alcohol, calories and carbs,” even though they are lighter in color, Hogan said. “Keep in mind a dark stout like Guinness can also be lower in calories.” (This is mostly because of its lower ABV.)

“A lager is also a decent choice if you are looking for a lower calorie beer due to its lower sugar content,” she said. And perhaps unsurprisingly, sweet-tasting beers tend to contain more residual sugars, which translates to more calories and more carbohydrates, than their drier counterparts such as lagers and pale lagers. 

In spite of appearances or reputation, a beer’s mix of ingredients and how much alcohol it contains matters more than the size of the brewery that produced it. 

And even the least alcoholic beer should be enjoyed in moderation. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends adults limit alcohol consumption to one drink per day for women or two drinks per day for men.

That’s especially good to keep in mind if you prefer a brew with an ABV that’s triple the average. 

“The less you weigh, the more you’re going to be effected by the alcohol content of the drink,” Nazario said. “Because men are bigger and have a lower amount of body fat compared to women, they tend to have a higher tolerance for alcohol.

“Consider drinking beer with food to help slow the absorption of alcohol, but don’t bet on it to prevent intoxication,” she cautioned. “It won’t.”

Are We There Yet?

2016-06-20-1466438742-2801355-RelaxYouHaveArrived.jpg

Are we there yet?

The Practice:
Relax, you’ve arrived.

Why?

We spend so much of our time trying to get somewhere.

Part of this comes from our biological nature. To survive, animals — including us — have to be goal-directed, leaning into the future.

It’s certainly healthy to pursue wholesome aims, like paying the rent on time, raising children well, healing old pain, or improving education.

But it’s also important to see how this focus on the future — on endless striving, on getting the next task done, on climbing the next mountain — can get confused and stressful.

It’s confused because the brain:

  • Overestimates both the pleasure of future gains and the pain of future losses. (This evolved to motivate our ancient ancestors to chase carrots hard and really dodge sticks.)
  • Makes the future seem like a real thing when in fact it doesn’t actually exist and never will. There is only now, forever and always.
  • Overlooks or minimizes the alrightness of this moment — including the many things already resolved or accomplished — in order to keep you looking for the next threat or opportunity. (For more on how the brain makes us stressed and fearful, see Buddha’s Brain.)

Further, this pursuit of the next thing is confused because the mind tends to transfer unfulfilled needs from childhood into the present, such as to be safe, worthy, attractive, successful, or loved. These longings often take on a life of their own — even after the original issues have been largely or even wholly resolved. Then we’re like the proverbial donkey trying to get a carrot held out in front of it on a pole: no matter how long we chase it, it’s always still ahead, never attained. For example, for years I pursued achievement due to underlying feelings of inadequacy; how many accomplishments does a person need to feel like a worthwhile person?

Besides being confused and confusing, striving is stressful. You’ve got to fire up, activating the fight-or-flight sympathetic nervous system and its related stress hormones. There’s a sense of pressure, of worry about a future that’s inherently uncertain, of entrapment on a neverending treadmill. There’s a lack of soothing and balance that would come from recognizing the truth of things:

You’ve actually already arrived.

How?

Recognize the simple fact that you got here, in this place, and now, in this moment. It may not be perfect. But think of the many things you have certainly done to come here. At a minimum, you survived high school! You’ve taken many steps, solved many problems, put many tasks and challenges behind you.

The word, “arrive,” comes from roots that mean “to reach the shore.” Once you land, of course, life is not over, since the next moment will be a new arrival. But sinking into the sense of having arrived, of having crossed the finish line of this moment, is calming, happy, and deserved. And knowing you’ve arrived, you now are more able to turn your attention toward being of true service to others.

To deepen the sense of arrival, help yourself relax into this moment. From time to time, you could softly say in your mind: arriving… arrived… arriving…

Draw on your body to strengthen this experience. Let each breath land in your awareness: arriving… arrived… arriving… Be aware of the bite landing in the mouth, the meal consumed, the body fed. As you walk, notice that, with each step, you have reached another place. Know that your hand has reached a cup, that the eye has received a sunset, that the smile of a friend has landed in your heart.

Consider old longings, old drives, that truly may be fulfilled, at least to a reasonable extent. (And if not fulfilled, maybe it’s time to let something go and move on.) Can you lighten up about these? Or can you accept that you have arrived at a place this moment that contains unfulfilled goals and unmet needs? It’s still an arrival. Plus it’s a “shore” that probably many good things about it no matter what’s still undone?.

In the deepest sense, reflect on the fact that each moment arrives complete in itself. Each wave lands on the shore of Now complete in its own right.

Arriving… arrived… arriving…

Arrived.
