Tips for SAFE (Outdoor) Exercise

Using Meditation to Stay Mentally "Cool"
Heidi S. Puc M.D., FACP, ABIHM

Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a simple, effortless technique for "recharging your mind and body"-creating a brighter, more positive state of mind. It is practiced for 20 minutes twice daily while sitting comfortably with eyes closed. Although there are many different forms of meditation one can practice, I find TM the most helpful to settle down "the monkey mind"-the endless brain chatter we all experience on a daily basis.

Herb-Enhanced Summer Beverage Recipes
One of the best ways to keep cool during hot summer months is by staying hydrated. Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water is the general recommendation. As wonderful as it is, sometimes plain water can become monotonous. Creating herb-enhanced cool beverages is a great way to keep hydrated with flavor.

Summer has arrived indeed! According to Chinese medicine, summer is the most yang (pronounced 'yong') time of year. Yang is the moving, active, warming aspect within nature and our bodies, while yin is the still cooling aspect.
