    I just finished The Happy Human by Gopi Kallayil. I was fortunate to meet the author at a Toastmasters conference and part of the registration fee included his book. I learned a lot from the book and would encourage you to read the book if you have a chance.

    One of the chapters was titled TAKE YOUR MEDS. I was expecting to read about the importance of being compliant with your medication, but instead it was a chapter discussing the MEDS lifestyle as a way of maintaining good health.

    M – Meditation – It is so important to find the time to be still in anyway you can. Most get hung up on time. Yes, it will be great to spend 20 minutes, twice a day, but anytime is better than no time. There are several ways to meditate. I prefer mindful meditation, but you can google and review what resonates with you.

    E – Exercise – Remember to incorporate aerobic, resistance, flexibility and balance.

    D – Diet – Mine is very simple – Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. Avoid the processed food and sugary drinks.

    S – Sleep – This is so important. Most people do not realize how much sleep plays a role in weight management.

    Often we talk about time preventing us from taking our MEDS. In the book, he mentioned that if you analyzed things, Meditation, Exercise, Sleep usually takes 10 hours in a day and then you have 14 hours for the rest of the things you need to do.

    Are you taking your MEDS daily?

These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.
