Final words:

take care of yourself

ho hasnt canceled a dentist or doctors appointment?


I used to postpone or neglect going to the doctor because it was inconvenient or seemed unnecessary. But after years of having skin cancers excised on a regular basis, Ive learned that regular checkups often catch
things we didnt know were lurking. Whether its melanoma, high blood
pressure or diabetes, early detection can be a lifesaver.
This annual Physicians Health Care Directory brings to mind the importance of our health care providers. If you dont have one, check
through the list. If youve been hesitant, intimidated or embarrassed to
talk to your doctor about concerns, Kenya
McCullum has a handy guide on how to
talk to your doctor. Advice? Write down
your questions and take notes. Be proactive, as Kathleen Brady reports, in a story
on the value of eye care in correcting and
preventing vision problems.
The holidays can be stressful, so its
wise to enter them armed with coping tips.
Elise Oberliesen writes about ways to avoid drinking too much and
McCullum has tips on healthy ways to handful conflict. Ready to get
away from it all? Andy Lindstrom explores how to relax and recharge
your batteries during the off season at beautiful St. George Island.
Theres a lot going on as the holidays approach, so check out our calendar of highlights, including the ever-popular Turkey Trot.
Its hard to believe the year is nearly over. Unfortunately, Your Health
magazine has also run its course. This will be the last issue. I have enjoyed guiding it for the last few months.
Enjoy the holidays and Ill look for you at the Turkey Trot! Take take
care of yourself thats the bottom line.

regular dilated eye exams are


critical to prevent vision loss
and other serious eye issues.
Diabetes is a disease that
interferes with the bodys
ability to use and store sugar,
which can cause many health
problems. Too much sugar in
the blood can cause damage
throughout the body, and that
includes the eyes. Over the
course of many years, diabetes affects the circulation
system of the retina, which is
the light sensitive lining at the
back of the eye.
Many eye problems show
no symptoms until they are in
an advanced stage, and that is
why we recommend that
people with diabetes in particular have an eye examination
at least once a year, says Dr.

According to the American


Optometric Associations
2013 American Eye-Q
consumer survey,

respondents are aware that

symptoms. Additionally,

diabetes can be detected
through a comprehensive

With the busy season just
around the corner, its important to maintain overall
good health and that includes good eye health as well.
The eye is the only structure where your doctor can
observe the bodys microvasculature without any invasive technique. Subtle
changes can oftentimes be
detected in the eye, which can
uncover numerous system
conditions including infectious
and inflammatory diseases.

detection and treatment may

WARNINGS SIGNS OF VISION DISORDERS


Since early warning signs of diabetic eye and vision disorders
are often subtle or undetected, the Florida Optometric Association recommends that high-risk individuals look for initial
signs and see your doctor if any of the following symptoms are
present:
Sudden blurred or double vision
Trouble reading or focusing on near-work
Eye pain or pressure
A noticeable aura or dark ring around lights or illuminated
objects
Visible dark spots in vision or images of flashing lights
In addition to having a yearly, comprehensive eye exam, the
Florida Optometric Association offers the following tips to
help prevent or slow the development of diabetic eye disease:
Take prescribed medication as directed
Keep glycohemoglobin test results (A1c or average blood
sugar level) consistently under 7 percent
Stick to a healthy diet that includes Omega 3s, fresh fruits
and vegetables
Exercise regularly
Control high blood pressure
Avoid alcohol and smoking

the retina. Damage to the tiny


blood vessels that nourish the
retina causes swelling of retinal tissue and clouding of
vision. If left untreated, diabetic retinopathy may lead to

blindness.
Those with diabetes are 40
percent more likely to suffer
from glaucoma than people
without diabetes. Glaucoma is
a group of eye diseases that

are characterized by damage


to the optic nerve, thereby
resulting in gradual peripheral
vision loss.
Many people without diabetes will get cataracts, but
those with the disease are 60
percent more likely to develop
this eye condition. People with
diabetes also tend to get cataracts at a much younger age
and have their conditions
progress faster. Cataracts
cause the eyes clear lens to
cloud, blocking light and interfering with normal vision.
Its important for diabetics
to maintain proper blood
sugar control for general
health. Tight glucose control is
imperative in the prevention of
eye diseases.
All patients, even nondiabetics, should commit to
periodic comprehensive eye
exams to ensure good eye
health.
Look forward to a healthy
happy holiday season. But
dont neglect your eyes!

ALTERNATIVE HEALTH

hens, cats, cows, and oh yes,
your philodendron?
Its what appears to be a universally positive response to music.

A music
buzz
Rhythm and
melody
stimulate
both sides
of the brain

In 1993 the popularization


of research called the Mozart
Effect had parents scrambling
to buy sonatas for their offspring, hoping that listening to
Mozart in the womb and in
the crib would make babies
smarter. Now much of that
early vogue has been debunked. The supposed rise in
IQ was found to be temporary,
minimal, and positive findings
could also be found when
children listened to rhythmic,
major-keyed nursery tunes
like Mary Had a Little Lamb.
But music does do something special to us when we
hear it. And researchers are
busy testing everything from
gorillas to plants to see what it
is. What do we know so far?
Hens lay more eggs with music piped into their coops.
Feral cats relax. Rats choose a
box with classical music when
presented with other boxes
pulsing with rap or only silence. And even plants grow

faster when peppy music of 60


beats/min is flowing across
their leaves.
Great, you say. But what
about people? What about
grown-ups?
When were presented with
a stimulus, information is often
taken in by either our right,
creative brain hemisphere, or
by our left, more analytical
side. The corpus callosum is the structure
that connects the two.

Music relaxes

FERAL CATS.

tallahassee.com/health 11

When listening to music, a


unique phenomenon occurs:
neurons are activated in the
corpus callosum that stimulate
both sides of the brain at once.
This enhanced activity can
permit greater storage of information; a stimulation of
creative imagery; and a release
of beneficial brain endorphins
like serotonin that give a sense
of well-being and relaxation.
The act of paying attention
to two distinct components of
music seems to be the key to
the series of positive effects
and those components are
rhythm and melody.
If rhythm alone were beneficial, we could all march in
place or listen to metronomes.
But varying rhythms, patterns
that become complex, change,
and force the brain to accommodate appear to be like a
gym workout for our neurons.
But a slow count or a fast
beat wouldnt be worth listening to if it werent for melody.
Melody seems to evoke emotion, images, memory, and the
beat carries those right-sided elements into the brain in
a more organized pattern.

coordination; improvement in

learning and more creativity.
Teachers note that children
find it easy to learn their alphabet and times tables when
sung out loud. In ancient
times, bards and great poets
could sing epics of over 1,000
lines, binding the words with
the patterns and cadences of
music. And we all can remember the lines to a great song
from our college days, when
we cant remember a grocery
list from yesterday.
So put aside the mindzapping crossword puzzle for
a while and turn off the computer with its brain game
stressors. Instead, put on that
dusty Tchaikovsky CD or

guitar.
Music, whether Mozart or
Motown, is likely to calm you
down and rev you up. And

Its tempting to avoid work parties and family

Realizing that alcohol lowers our inhibitions, its easy to lose

Best advice ever never drink


and drive. Unfortunately, my
advice wont stop people from
doing it. According to Florida
DMV, in 2011, there were 33,625
DUI convictions. Such numbers
combined with a cultural love
for drinking has spurred demand
for blood alcohol monitoring
devices.
For about $50, BACtrack Vio is a
breathalyzer device that helps
determine whether youve had
too much to drink. After downloading the app, simply blow
into the device and it spits out
your estimated blood alcohol
level on your smartphone.
For best results, wait about 15
minutes after your last drink,
any foods eaten or tobacco use
before testing.
Associate Professor Adam Barry,
Ph.D, who studies drinking
behaviors at Texas A&M and
previously taught at University
of Florida, expressed caution
about consumer-based breathalyzers. He questions their validity
and says people could be making decisions about whether to
drive based on data that may
not be 100 percent accurate.
If you have someone that says,
let me test my blood alcohol
levels and it gives them a lower
level, it may influence their
decision to drive home or to
drink even more alcohol, he
says.
Barry also suggests ignoring the
one hour rule where people
limit consumption to one drink
per hour. It generally takes two
hours for blood alcohol levels to
hit zero, he says.
He also suggests ignoring the

Gender and weight influence

stuff or end up binge drinking.


For women, binge drinking
is four drinks within about two
hours; for men, that number is
five, according to the Centers
for Disease Control. Women
who binge typically drink
about three times per month
and consume about 5.7 drinks,
according to CDC reports.
Such consumption levels
lead some people to abstain
from alcohol entirely. But other
people view abstinence as
punishment for which no
crime was committed.
For people who drink socially those who can honestly live without booze and
are not riddled with cravings or
dependence, Brooke Alpert
MS RD, the New York-based
author of Sugar Detox, says
learning to drink in moderation
works well for many people
but certainly not everyone.
If you choose to imbibe,
Alpert suggests mixed drinks
with club soda. By ordering
vodka and club soda, it will

help hydrate your body without


extra sugar and calories.
Hydration prevents you
from getting drunk too quickly
and it eases up on hangovers.
The biggest downfall of drinking alcohol is that people get
dehydrated, she says.
Generally, dehydration
combined with excessive
drinking causes hangovers,
though, experts at MayoClinic.com say, even small amounts
of alcohol may trigger a
hangover.

Order up
Anyone who turns a few glasses of red wine into an entire
bottle knows that drinking can
spin out of control before you
know it. And a few drinks may
easily turns into a binge.
About 14 million American
women binge drink, according
to the CDC. Women who binge
drink tend to be white and
Hispanic, with household incomes at $75K or more.
If you want to slow down

the drinking, Alpert suggests


switching to water after each
drink.
And when dining out during
the holiday order your
festive drink with the meal,
she says.
If you drink when you
first sit down, you have a
chance of drinking for two
hours, says Alpert.
That way, you will drink
less and wont get toasted
before the meal arrives.
Thats important because
food in the stomach works like
a sponge that slowly absorbs
the alcohol and reduces that
tipsy feeling, she says.
Unless someone is alcohol
dependent, Alpert attributes
drinking behaviors with habits
that we are capable of changing. All it takes is a few tweaks.
The more they practice
these suggestions, the more
they will be able to get a pleasurable feeling from it [drinking] basically were lowering

white coat hypertension, also

Not surprisingly, when
youre afraid of going to the

health concerns. But you dont
have to have a case of white
coat hypertension to experience a communication barrier
with your health professionals.
Oftentimes, says Dr. Stephen

that we know everything and


youre just the patient, but I
think over time, most doctors
have come to realize that patients are an educated audience, especially with the Internet. Patients come in with
so much information sometimes that I end up learning a
lot from them.
Despite this attitude shift,
talking to a doctor can still be
intimidating for many people.
The following tips can help you
get the most out of your doctors appointments, and ease
any reluctance you feel about
communicating openly and
honestly with your physician.
Be prepared. Before you
go to the doctor, make sure
you have as much information
as possible about whats been
going on with your health
your symptoms, the medications youre taking, any treatments you may have received
in the past, and, if possible,
tallahassee.com/health 17

Taking notes during your doctors


appointment can go a long way toward
ensuring that you understand what you need to
do about your health.

MAKE SURE
YOURE BEING
HEARD.
Communication
is a two-way
street, so if you
feel that your
doctor is not
listening to you,
make sure that
you firmly, but
not in an
aggressive way,
make sure your
concerns are
being heard.

your family medical history.


This will make it easier for you
to answer questions that your
doctor may have as accurately
as possible.
Prioritize. As youre preparing for your doctors appointment, you will inevitably
have questions. But, its important to ask your most serious
questions first to make sure
those issues are addressed
especially if your doctor has
limited time. You can always
make another appointment to
discuss the other questions, or
find out if a member of the
doctors team can help you
with any less serious issues.
Make sure youre being
heard. Communication is a
two-way street, so if you feel
that your doctor is not listening
to you, make sure that you
firmly, but not in an aggressive
way, make sure your concerns
are being heard.
If your doctor isnt listening to you, then youre not
going to get anywhere, said
Brewer. Doctors that listen to
about two sentences of what
you have to say and immediately write a prescription or tell
you what to do may not be the
best choice for you. Its better
when you sit down with the
doctor and the doctor listens to
your whole concern.

Take notes. Taking notes


during your doctors appointment can go a long way toward
ensuring that you understand
what you need to do about
your health. And before you
leave the office, be sure to
review your notes with your
doctor to confirm that you
understand what you heard
and you know what steps you
need to take.
Dont leave anything out.
In order to get the best care
possible, its important that you
tell your doctor everything. But
sometimes, says Brewer, patients may be too embarrassed
to talk about certain things, or
may be afraid to give their
doctor certain kinds of information.
For example, if a patient
has been taking a lot of supplements and vitamins, sometimes they dont want to tell
the doctor because theyre
afraid the doctor will tell them
not take those supplements,
he said. But, in order for us to
help you, youve got to be
open.
Brewer suggests that you
remain open if your doctors
suggest something that makes
you uncomfortable. Dont
suffer in silence, tell the doctor
what your concerns are and
ask what options you have.

ant an all-purpose exercise that will


strengthen and tone your entire
body, especially your backside?
Squats will do all of that and more, said Abe
Kalka, manager of Aspen Athletic Club on Fleur
Drive in Des Moines.
Squats are one of the best
exercises for working your
whole body, Kalka said, including your gluteus maximus
(glutes), quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, abdominals
and low back. Add hand
weights to the equation, and
youll work your upper body
as well for a full-body workout.
Squats help train the muscles that support our core and
can help prevent injuries to
our lower back, Kalka said.
He recommends squats to
anyone who wants to lose
weight or improve their posture, sports performance, or
leg and core strength.
To avoid injury and obtain
maximum results, Kalka advises working slowly to focus
on proper form and technique.
If I just want to be sore
tomorrow, I can blast through
a squat workout and not walk
the next day, he said.
If you feel immediate pain
in the knees or lower back,
discontinue the exercise or
slow down, Kalka said. If pain
persists longer than a day,

consult your doctor.

Chair or ball squats


(beginners)
When doing this squat, focus
on keeping your body and
your form stable, Kalka said.
This is a great way to learn
how to do squats because
you're basically sitting down
and standing back up, he
said. If done properly, there
is little to no risk of injury.
1. Stand about 12 inches in
front of a chair or stability ball.
If you use a chair without
cushions, you may want to
place a pillow on the chair. If
you use a stability ball, try
putting it in front of a wall to
keep it from rolling away.
2. Stand straight with feet
shoulder width apart, toes
pointing forward, and abdominal muscles engaged.
3. Slowly lower your butt to
the chair or ball, keeping your
weight on your heels, not your
toes. Because we want a sexy
backside, not sexy kneecaps!
reminded Kalka. Calves
should stay perpendicular to

the floor, and knees should


remain behind the toes.
4. Stand back up.
5. Work up to three sets of
10-15 repetitions, or until you
start to feel a burn.

Jump squats
(advanced)
This squat is great for developing powerful legs and putting the finishing touches on a
toned backside and legs,
Kalka said.
1. This is another free-standing squat. To keep this squat
safe, dont use weights.
2. Use the same alignment as
before, standing straight with
feet shoulder width apart, toes
pointing forward, and abdomi-

nal muscles engaged.


3. Lower your butt down until
your thighs are parallel with
the floor, again keeping your
calves perpendicular to the
floor, your knees behind your
toes, and your weight on your
heels, not your toes.
4. Instead of just standing up,
return to standing by exploding up into a jump with your
feet coming several inches off
the ground.
5. For each subsequent squat,
start with proper standing
form, then return to your
squat position slowly, controlling your descent, before you
leap up to standing again.
6. Work up to three sets of
10-15 reps, but start slow.

MIND MATTERS

Combat
holiday
conflict
Take high road
and set realistic
expectations
By Kenya McCullum

If your husband is fighting with you


over the cost of decorations when
that was never an issue before,
chances are there may be
something lingering under the
surface thats bothering him.

COUPLE ARGUING: HEMERA/THINKSTOCK; ORNAMENT: ISTOCKPHOTO/THINKSTOCK

he holiday season is the


most wonderful time of
the year, right? Perhaps.
But its definitely a time when
people can experience a great
deal of stress and unleash any
pent up frustrations theyve
been holding on to all year.
And when that happens, even
the slightest conflict can cause
bad feelings to bubble to the
surface and boil over into a
holiday blow up.
But it doesnt have to come
to that. The following tips can
help you avoid holiday conflict, or handle it effectively
when it does come up, so that
your happy holiday doesnt
turn into a holiday nightmare.
Be realistic. You know your
family members and you
know how theyre likely to
behave during the holidays.
Although you may hope that
they handle this year differently, if you count on that,
youre most likely setting
yourself up for disappointment. Alla Branzburg, LCSW,
psychotherapist and adjunct
professor at the University of
Southern California, suggests
that instead of hoping problematic people will change,

change your attitude and use


their past behavior as a guide
on what to expect.
People need to be realistic about their families and
about the relationships within
the family system, she said.
You need to understand that
if Uncle John will always get
angry after drinking, or that
Aunt Amy is always critical,
then you need to plan for it.
You can go with the flow,
accept the fact that this is
whats going to happen, and
be prepared resolve the conflict or decide not to invite
them at all.
Of course, deciding not to
invite a family member to the
holiday celebration can cause
a whole new area of conflict
all its own. If you do decide
to go that route, make plans
to do something with that
person individually. A special
dinner where you give them
individual attention will show
that you care and you want to

spend quality time with them.


It can also be a great opportunity to discuss any concerns
you have so conflict can be
avoided in the future.
Understand the conflict. Often, holiday conflict
has nothing to do with the
holiday at all, but rather its
used as an outlet for the pent
up frustrations people feel in
a relationship. So if your
husband is fighting with you
over the cost of Christmas
decorations when that was
never an issue before,
chances are there may be
something lingering under the
surface thats bothering him.
Instead of feeding into an
argument about something
trivial, find out whats really
going on so you can get to the
root of the real problem and
work on resolving it.
Take the high road.
Sometimes when someone is
causing conflict and generally
getting under your skin, its

almost impossible not to take


the bait. But its best to stay
above the fray so the situation
doesnt escalate. If that
means you need to physically
get away for a little while so it
can cool down, do it. Just let
people know that youre putting yourself in time out and
you will address the problem
once tempers are not running
so high.
Take good care of yourself. Practicing good selfcare is always a good idea,
but during the holidays, it can
be especially important because we tend to overextend
ourselves this time of year,
which can breed resentment.
In order to avoid letting that
stress build up until it explodes, take good care of
yourself by setting clear
boundaries, asking for help so
you dont run yourself ragged, and keeping your holiday
commitments in check. Dont
forget to do something special

for yourself.
Remember conflict isnt
always a bad thing. Conflict
can be stressful and painful
when were going through it,
but Dr. Friedemann Schaub,
the author of The Fear +
Anxiety Solution, says we
should remember what is
underneath the conflict.
Conflict is actually
healthy. Conflict is a part of a
relationship. The worst relationships are those that never
have conflict because people
dont care enough to engage
in ways that sometimes bring
up different opinions, he
said. Conflict is not a bad
thing; it can actually be like a
thunderstorm on a hot summer day it can be really
cleansing and can shift the
whole atmosphere. Conflict
can also bring people back to
the level of authenticity and
realness that can be very
healthy if youre using it in a
positive way.

Public can comment on


FDA seafood guidelines
for pregnant women
By Ed Lallo

Gulf Seafood News

he Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have developed a new analysis supporting and encouraging
pregnant and nursing moms
to eat in a manner consistent
with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommendation to add seafood to
their diet, including healthy
Gulf seafood choices. Before
the agency issues its final
advice it will seek input from
the FDA Risk Communication
Advisory Committee and
conduct a series of focus
groups, as well as accept
public comments.
For years many women
have limited or avoided eating fish during pregnancy or
feeding fish to their young
children, said Stephen Ostroff, M.D., the FDAs acting
chief scientist.

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines encourage new and


expectant moms to consume
12 ounces of seafood per
week. This is a significant
change from the FDAs previous 2004 advice advising
moms to eat no more than 12
ounces of seafood. The agencys new guidelines recommends this group of women
boost their intake of fish
dramatically.
The national average for
seafood consumption
amongst pregnant women is
currently less than two
ounces per week, said a
pregnant Margaret Henderson, executive director of
the Gulf Seafood Institute.

CONSUMPTION AMONGST PREGNANT WOMEN IS

The FDA is proposing to


align their recommendations
to be consistent with federal
policy that finds new and
expectant moms should quadrouple the current amount of
seafood theyre eating. Both
the Gulf and the U.S. seafood
industry provide delicious
options to meet the anticipated growing demand by
mothers who want to ensure
their children are healthy.

FDA data from


pregnant women
An FDA analysis of seafood
consumption data from more
than 1,000 pregnant women in
the United States found 21
percent of them ate no fish in
the previous month, and those
who ate fish ate far less than
the Dietary Guidelines for
Americans recommends.
For years many women
have limited or avoided eating
fish during pregnancy or feed-

ing fish to their young children, said Stephen Ostroff,


M.D., the FDAs acting chief
scientist. But emerging science now tells us that limiting
or avoiding fish during pregnancy and early childhood can
mean missing out on important nutrients that can have a
positive impact on growth and
development as well as on
general health.

ST. GEORGE ISLAND

St. George Island Beach in Franklin County provide plenty to love in all year round, but winter brings lower rates, more solitude and good weather

By Andy Lindstrom

ven on the coolest days of winter, the 6.3-mile paved trail that parallels St. George Islands
main drag draws power walkers and cyclists, hard-core runners and recreational strollers
with their pets on a leash. Sun-warmed sand beaches whose water temperatures reach into
the 70s almost to Christmas lure hardy swimmers and surf-wading bait casters alike.

bird watchers from all over the

in search of more than 350

Camping is our biggest
winter attraction, said Bob

manager. Its still pretty nice
because were surrounded by
fairly warm Gulf water. Believe it or not, theres even a
lot of folks swimming, and the
fishings still good.

More than just a laid-back


collection of vacation homes
that button up as summer
fades, St. George Island has
morphed into a year-round
getaway with a healthy mix of
activities for every taste.
About 75 miles southwest of
Tallahassee and a world removed from downstate high
rises and theme parks, the
20-mile long barrier island
offers Bingo, yoga, art and
boat-building classes for the
less athletic crowd, shrimp
boils and music fests after the
sun goes down, one of Dr.
Beachs Top 10 American
beaches to simply wander
along scuff up a shell or two,
and watch the Gulfs cobalt
blue waters roll in.
But for those of a more
active bent, the island in winter can be a surprisingly inexpensive outdoor fitness
center with sparkling air and
average high temperatures
that rarely linger below the
60s. Along with jogging, biking
and water sports, add the state
parks 3.5-mile nature trail and
St. George Lighthouses 92stairstep climb to get the heart
pounding.
And its a great time for
bargain accommodations,
said Helen Griffin, guest service manager at Collins Vacation Rental. From November
to February, you can get 28
days in an island cottage for
the same price as one week in
the summer.
Locals also like the bugfree, less crowded months if
for no other reasons than to
enjoy the bargain prices, cook
up some freshly caught seafood and recharge their batteries. They like to escape from
the traffic of the city, said
Collins general manager Susan
Ficklen. Its just that peaceful
feeling of coming across the
bridge and knowing that you
can do anything you want to
do or nothing at all. Life is so
simple here.

Stress at work?
Docs offer coping tips
By Linda Lombroso
llombros@lohud.com

52 Your Health Magazine | December 2014

f you come home


stressed out after a long
day at work, youre not
alone.
Job stress affects everyone
from sanitation workers to
CEOs, says Dr. Michael Silver,
a cardiologist with WESTMED
in White Plains.
The bigger issue, he says, is
finding ways to cope with that
stress so it doesnt affect your
health.
While a recent study found
that people in service jobs had
higher rates of heart disease,
that doesnt mean being a
waiter necessarily gives you
high blood pressure, he says.
Rather its the choices those in
high-stress jobs often make
smoking, eating poorly, not
going to the doctor regularly
that can lead to trouble.
The best way to prevent
heart disease is by controlling
known risk factors, including
smoking, blood pressure,
cholesterol and diabetes, he
says.
You cant emphasize that
enough: People have to learn
how to deal with stress in a
more proactive way so they
dont do things that harm
them, says Silver.
If youre stressed out about
all the stress youre under,
stop worrying and think
from a different perspective,
says Dr. Catherine Isaac, an
internist with Scarsdale Medical Group. Figure out ways to
build your resilience and focus
on doing things that make you
feel good.
Theres pretty good data
that stress can increase your
risk for heart disease, says
Isaac, who has a special interest in mind-body medicine.
Depression, anxiety and
negative emotions like anger
can also increase your risk,
and theyve done studies that
show even having an anxious
mood is correlated with development of atherosclerosis, or
thickening of the artery wall.

Exercise remains one of the


best ways to feel better, she
says: It boosts your mood, and
is good for cardiovascular
health, bone health, depression and anxiety. Even if you
dont have time for a workout,
try to squeeze in a mental
health break by taking a walk
in the sunshine for five minutes, or walking to a friends
house instead of driving.
For those who decide to
devote Saturdays and Sundays
to longer workouts, its crucial
not to overdo it without warm-

ing up, says Dr. Michael Gott,


an orthopedic surgeon with
Westchester Health in White
Plains and Katonah.
Weekend-warrior syndrome, which affects men and
women of any age, can lead to
ruptured Achilles tendons,
hamstring strains, tendinitis
and back pain.
Flexibility starts to decrease at puberty, he says, so
dont jump right into a sport
without stretching first.
Break a sweat before you
break a sweat, says Gott, who

specializes in sports medicine.


Jog around, get loose, get
your muscles warm so theyre
more ready to take the impact
of explosive movements during competitive sports.
But dont stress yourself
out even more by worrying
that exercising on weekends
isnt enough.
Any activity is better than
no activity, says Gott.
By managing stress, you
can feel better and have a
better quality of life, says
Isaac.

If youre stressed out about all the stress youre under,


stop worrying and think from a different perspective,
says Dr. Catherine Isaac, an internist with Scarsdale
Medical Group. Figure out ways to build your resilience
and focus on doing things that make you feel good.
