Depression, Drugs + Sleep

Scientists measure the depth of someone’s depression using the Hamilton Scale, invented by the scientist Max Hamilton in 1959. The Hamilton Scale ranges from 0 (loving life) to 51 (high suicide risk). Interestingly, a 6 point rise can be elicited through improved sleep patterns and habits, whilst anti-depressant medications show […]


Weight Loss Resistance.

It’s common. If you’ve tried to lose weight and either can’t sustain it through different life stages, or you just can’t shift it, please listen in. There are two things to note. #1.

No Lunchboxes? The parental responsibility.

Yet when that space arrives, you don’t know how to fully embrace it.  You become irritable with feelings of discomfort.  You’ve forgotten how to […]
