I still don’t feel good. I can’t unsee. It’s impossible to un-know. Former Police Officer, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all three counts related to the death of George Floyd . While surprised, I am not relieved. I am still holding my breath like I was prior to the verdict announcement. A jury found that Chauvin was responsible for the death of George Floyd and he will be held accountable. However, Chauvin's actions are a part of a larger system of injustice, racism , and oppression and it is just too hard to overlook that and celebrate. A 2018 study published in JAMA of 1,000 adults in Baltimore and New York City, focused on police violence, found reported prevalence rates "ranging from 3 percent for sexual violence to 15 percent for neglect," and that there were associations between violence and mental health symptoms, like suicidal ideation, suicide attempts, and psychotic symptoms. These exposures were differentially distributed throughout the population—with … [Read more...] about I Still Can’t Breathe: What to Make of the Chauvin Verdict
Home Yoga spirituality Anecdotes Anecdotes oi-Priya Devi By Priya Devi on June 25, 2010 Retold by Swami Rama Tiratha during Lecture delivered on November 16, 1902 in the Academy of Sciences, San Francisco. When Alexander- the Great, visited India after conquering all the other countries in the world that were known to him, he wanted to see the strange Indians of whom he had been hearing so much. He was just led to a monk or priest on the bank of the Indus river. The monk lay there on the sands, bare-footed, naked, wearing no clothes and not knowing where from his tomorrow's food was to come, just lying there and basking in the sun. Alexander, the Great, with his crown shining, dazzling with the brilliant diamonds and gems that he had got from Persia, stood beside him in all his glory. Beside him was the monk with no clothes on -what a contrast, what a contrast! The riches of the whole world represented by the body of … [Read more...] about Alexander The Great And The Mendicant Monk!
Source: John-Tyler Binfet If I asked you to describe your workout plan, some of you would spout regimens rivaling a day in the life of Simone Biles. But if I asked what everyone's mental health workout plan was, I suspect we’d see many folks looking at their shoes. My sense is that we tend to be more reactive around mental health than proactive: When it gets bad enough, we’ll deal with it. If we’ve learned anything from Covid and the restrictions it placed on our mobility and social interactions, it’s that it took a toll on our mental health. My goal is to convince you to add a simple yet powerful component to the proactive bank of strategies you have for taking care of your mental health: Be intentionally kind to others. Different Ways to Be Kind I’m a kindness researcher at the University of British Columbia and, when not covered in dog hair from overseeing an on-campus canine therapy program to reduce student stress , I ask elementary, middle, and high school … [Read more...] about Kindness and Your Mental Health Workout Plan
The 40 million unpaid caregivers of people with dementia are heroes on the front lines of COVID-19 . They and their paid colleagues have good reason to be especially concerned about health. The statistics are horrifying: Eight out of ten people dying of COVID-19 in the U.S are 65 years or older. One in ten people 65 years or older has dementia. Alzheimer’s disease affects 5.5 million Americans and approximately 44 million worldwide. Eighty percent of Alzheimer’s caregivers have symptoms of severe stress — a 10 percent increase since late March. As family caregivers donate some $470 billion worth of work and families pay dearly for senior living facilities, loved ones are dying from COVID-19 in staggering numbers, and caregivers’ own vigilance makes them personally vulnerable. In describing a Lancet study on the pandemic’s danger, Vox researchers refer to a “gulf of survivability” – the case fatality rate of people 80 and older is 13.4 percent compared to a 0.4 … [Read more...] about Need a Whole Solution for Dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease?
