      Chill Out, Don’t Burn Out

      It can be difficult in the twenty first century to find the ideal work life balance. We can be at work for over eight hours a day with an overbearing boss and unrealistic targets to meet. The risk of burnout is immense if you are heading home after your day in the office, only to whip open your laptop to continue working into the small hours. When do you get time to think about your own mental well being? Without the capability to be able to switch off, you risk running yourself into the ground. This is when burnout can occur.

      Love it: Practicing the art of appreciation

      We can train our brains to look for the positive, even in stressful situations. Start by identifying things that fill you with anger, bitterness, envy or judgment. Then find comparative things in your own life that bring you joy or fill you with pride and consider how you have been blessed. It may take a few tries, but even if you fail at first, don’t give up. Say thank you for the small things, and mean it.

      How Congress Can Address The Mental Health Issue Of Mass Shootings

      Sandy Hook, Parkland, Orlando, Virginia Beach and now the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting evoke painful memories of terrible violence and innocent deaths. Our nation reacts with memorials, discussions of access to firearms, followed by increased funding for safety measures such as armed guards, cameras and bullet proof glass at secure entrances. But far more needs to be addressed than just stopping the bullet. Tragedies grab headlines, but hardly tell the full story.

      Autism Largely Caused by Genetics, Not Environment

      The largest study of its kind, involving more than 2 million people across five countries, finds that autism spectrum disorders are 80% reliant on inherited genes.

      That means that environmental causes are responsible for just 20% of the risk.

      The findings could open new doors to research into the genetic causes of autism, which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now says affects 1 in every 59 U.S. children.

      Ghost disease: A first-hand, disturbing account of delirium after surgery

      It is a ghost disease. More than 2 million Americans are haunted every year by postoperative delirium, a strange, creeping state of confusion that the medical profession admits it can neither understand nor cure. It is a problem that affects the brain, divorces its victims from reality and plunges them into a state of derangement — and few doctors can tell them why. Indeed, physicians usually cannot even see the symptoms of this disease until the patient already is in its grip.
