On Prophetic Wisdom and Speaking to Children in Times of Distress

By Rania Awaad, M.D. A remarkable trademark of the Prophet Muhammad, may peace be upon him, was that he spoke to children at their age-appropriate levels. To draw inspiration from the Prophetic wisdom on how to speak to young people, particularly in times of distress, one need only reference the Prophet’s gentle interaction with his young companion, Abu ‘Umayr, upon recognizing the child’s grief about the death of his pet. Perhaps the most striking lessons we learn from this interaction was that...

The unexpected cost of living for a very long time

Medical advances have increased our longevity by decades, says Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health. That benefit comes with an unintended disadvantage – high costs. Bringing the overall cost of health care down is near impossible, as an increased life expectancy brings new diseases and procedures with it.Reducing the out-of-pocket cost is a separate issue, however. It is possible and necessary to lower costs so they don't become a barrier to people seeking care. ...

Chores cause conflict. Try managing them like this instead.

When managing household tasks, its best to set clear expectations about whose job it is to take care of what. Often we do things we feel are important, and put less value on other tasks others may be doing — it's important to show appreciation to keep home maintenance a well-oiled machine. Often people feel it's not their responsibility to keep things maintained when others are acting similarly in a shared space. Outer Order, Inner Calm: D...

Jim Morrison Declares That “Fat is Beautiful” …. And Means It

There’s a bit of cognitive dissonance in a young rock god giving voice to the fat pride movement some four decades after his death. Years before social media amplified celebrity weight gain coverage to the realm of national news, The Doors’ lead singer, Lizard King Jim Morrison, was the subject of intense bodily scrutiny. The musician’s drug of choice—alcohol—swiftly added some extra cushioning to the sexy, shirtless young lion image photographer Joel Brodsky managed to capture in 1967. ...

Spiritual Poverty And Robotic Rituals

By Monique Hassan Think about the times you were reciting Quran and felt it in your heart, really felt it. I love those moments when we open Quran and read a verse that seems to speak to us as if Allah (the Most Honored and Exalted) was responding. However, just as we have spiritual highs, we have spiritual lows. A heart lacking the divine connection while in worship begins to perform like a robot. We have to pray, this is obligatory, but sometimes the one in worship is functioning like a cold r...

Self Care: How Sleep Can Revolutionize Your Life and Improve Performance

When we set out to improve our lifestyle by taking care of our health and joining a gym, we often rush down to the supplement store and load up on goodies. In fact, recent studies have found that the supplement industry has grown to over 200-billion dollars in annual revenue from gym enthusiasts around the globe. But what if there were something, we could incorporate into our lifestyle that was more powerful than supplements and less expensive than organic food? Sleep, contrary to popular beli...

Attention is not a resource but a way of being alive to the world

'We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom.' Those were the words of the American biologist E O Wilson at the turn of the century. Fastforward to the smartphone era, and it's easy to believe that our mental lives are now more fragmentary and scattered than ever. The 'attention economy' is a phrase that's often used to make sense of what's going on: it puts our attention as a limited resource at the centre of the informational ecosystem, with our various alerts and notifications l...

2019 Goals and Word of the Year

One thing I like to do every year is look back and see how I spent my time, what I thought I would get done and didn’t, and what I want to prioritize in the coming year. I also look ahead at what I have on the calendar. I use all of these things to set some goals for the year. Typically, these goals are focused on bettering myself and the world around me. This year, I’m also setting a word of the year, something I want to use to help focus my year. I have a number of Coeur teammat...

2018 Year in Review

I had big plans in 2018, namely to finish a 70.3. Well, we all know how those plans went. 2018 quickly went off the rails, but I did my best to regroup and reframe my goals. One of my goals was to get healthy and I can successfully say that I did that by rehabbing my hip. I’m back to running pain free, so I consider that a huge win. January January was definitely a month of discovery. I started the month with an awesome trip to Disney to cheer for the marathon, but ended the month with a diagnos...

Maybe meat reduction?

I read an article by David Mitchell yesterday about veganism, and it really got me thinking. He made the argument, in a very wishy-washy but not unclear way, that vegans are obviously in the right. Well, obviously. Vegetarians are in the right too. Meat-eaters obviously in the wrong. But, we do like to eat meat. We like sausages. We’re used to it. It’s what we grew up with. So, well, what then? Then the obvious step is to try and be better. For a while Su went vegetarian and her health suffered....

How Music Can Awaken Patients with Alzheimer’s and Dementia

In the late 1950’s, pioneering free jazz bandleader Sun Ra played a gig at a Chicago mental hospital, booked there by his manager Alton Abraham, who had an interest in alternative medicine. The experiment in musical therapy worked wonders. One patient who had not moved or spoken in years reportedly got up, walked over to the piano, and yelled out, “you call that music!” The anecdote illustrates just one experience among untold millions in which a person suffering from a debilitating neur...
