Genes for Depression and Bipolar in Women May Have Been Found

by   -  June 29th, 2015

Genes for Depression and Bipolar preview

This article was written by award-winning writer and speaker, Natasha Tracy.

According to researchers out of the University of California, specific genes for bipolar disorder and depression in women may have been found. While the genes themselves are not newly-located, their role in mental illness in a general population of women was not previously known. However, due to study of 144 samples, researchers are now saying that these genes may be the basis on which a blood test could be made to test for major affective disorders (depression and bipolar disorder) in women.

Tips and Tricks for Fun Hiking with Little Ones

June is National Great Outdoors (GO!) Month here in the United States and I can think of no better way to celebrate with my little ones than to lose ourselves in nature. We are fortunate enough to live in Minnesota, where state forests, hiking trails, and paved trails are abundant.

When I was a child, my parents never took me places to wander the woods. Instead, I grew up in a part of town with a forest behind our house and I would find myself outside from dawn until dusk, when I could. From a very young age, I would roam the woods, dreaming about what life was like when there were no conventional houses, roads, cars, etc. I’d fight bad guys (broken tree branches) with my “sword" (a large stick), build teepees, and all around explore.

These days, it may not be as feasible for our kids to do the same, but we can ensure they find themselves in a bit of nature so they can build a love for it, too.

The Dad Bod Sleight of Hand

There seems to be something amuck with our trends these days. I recently wrote an article about beauty standards for women by teaching our daughters when they’re young. Everywhere I look, it seems like women are berating themselves and trying to find a way to justify their looks or at least reconcile them with society’s views. Meanwhile, enter the “Dad Bod" social media frenzy. In a split second, 500 words written by a college sophomore declaring “girls are all about the dad bod" went completely viral, giving men with a plump appearance a self-esteem boost. For those of you unfamiliar, Mackenzie Pearson claims the “dad bod" to be a look of, ‘I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time.’ Still confused? The Washington Post can help you work out whether or not you have a dad bod by clicking here.

Some feminists claim this trend is unfair because it gives pudgy men a free pass, while the “mom bods" out there are still considered unflattering.

Hold up a moment while I pick my jaw off the table.

The Way Fatherhood Has Changed Through the Decades

Father’s Day is around the corner and we’d like to celebrate the role of fatherhood by taking a stroll through the past century. In 2015, we celebrate an unparalleled diversity of family structures and parental responsibilities. We have fathers who are gay, straight, work part-time or full-time, live with the family, dads who are divorced and live elsewhere, step-fathers, fathers who participate in the upbringing in their kids’ lives, father’s who take a more hands-off approach, and everything in between. This incredible variance wasn’t always the case throughout history – or at least as openly accepting of it.

During the last century, nearly each decade was defined by the stereotypes and roles expected of fathers. In the 1920’s, the mentality of “father knows best" and he is the main provider and breadwinner of the family began to surface. By the 1950’s – the classical era of this mentality – nearly two-thirds of families in America grew up with this type of family dynamic. Dad typically spent more time away from the home than in it, and he was also the main disciplinarian over his kids, despite the mother being the main caregiver. This type of imbalance probably led to a lot of unrest with their kids - many of which are our parents now. It’s hard to be the main disciplinarian when you’re never home, if you ask me.

Switch Off and Get Outdoors for True Connection

We live in a fast-paced, high-tech world filled with florescent lighting and forced air. Very few of us get outside as much as we should, even knowing the beneficial effects nature has in store for us. Sometimes, a reminder to get outside is the kick in the shorts we need to get out of our house and take a look around.

Clinton was the first President to make the proclamation to hold June sacred as a month to get outside and rediscover nature. Since that time, each President thereafter has proclaimed June America’s “National Get Outdoors Month" and we’d like to give you some ideas to participate and enjoy a month of natural bliss.

What Does Your Skin Have To Do With Your Gut?

by   -  June 1st, 2015

Ever heard of the saying, “beauty starts on the inside"? Well, they aren’t just talking about your inner state. Turns out, the way to beautiful, healthy looking skin could have more to do with your stomach flora than your inner om.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past ten years, you’ve probably at least heard the term probiotics mentioned in passing. Found in all sorts of things from supplements, to yogurt, to even skincare these days – these bacteria have more to do with your skin than you might think. When your insides are in an upheaval, the first place they start showing their true colors may not be with frequent trips to the bathroom. Instead, you may notice things like dry skin, more blemishes, rosacea, and eczema. Consider it an alarm bell of sorts.

If you’re living with some of these skin issues, you may need to ask yourself if it’s time to consider your inner workings as a possible source of the problem.
