Lifting Depression’s Dark Cloud
In our October story “Feeling Low,” we learned that low mood and poor health are often linked. On our blog at www.energytimes.com, we asked readers how they have dealt with depression; here is one of the responses.
I have suffered from depression and anxiety for years; nothing seemed to help. I started taking a tablespoon of flax seed oil every day (for the omega-3) and went vegan (I was already vegetarian). I feel 100% better than I have in my whole life. I am also sleeping better, feel more rested and energetic, and my anxiety has lessened.
Exercising Children’s IQs
As a retired teacher, I think “Your Child’s Nutritional IQ” (September) is a great piece. But don’t forget physical exercise, which increases blood flow to the brain, and mental exercise—learning new things gives the brain greater precision, speed and retention. You can also help children succeed by encouraging them to maintain a positive attitude and to use their imaginations.
Sting Should Go Meatless
It’s great that the talented Sting and his family are consuming less meat (“Sting: The Yogi Behind the Music,” October). Better for them, better for the planet. Then it’s revealed that the family slaughters their animals in England and sells a “specialty salami” at their estate in Tuscany. Their
consciousness could rise to truly humane heights by giving up meat altogether. And think of the impact that decision could have: Many of his fans might choose to emulate Sting.
