Too Much of a Good Thing: Exercise

Posted by Stacy Covitz on Sep 13, 2017 1:33:27 PM

It’s 7 a.m. on a Friday, and my dog and I have just finished our 15-minute morning walk. As Maddie tries to race up the stairs to my third-floor walk-up apartment, I pull back on the leash, and make my way slowly up the 36 stairs. I’m counting each step, and at the top, I’m walking like some version of Frankenstein. I pride myself on being in good shape, at least as fit as my Shih Tzu. I reluctantly admit that I may have over-exercised.

While You Were Sleeping: What to Expect in a Sleep Study

Posted by Stacy Covitz on Sep 11, 2017 3:43:08 PM

We spend up to one-third of our lives asleep, which is a lot. It would be nice to know that all those hours you spend in bed are well-spent. You might have insomnia and not be able to fall asleep at all. Or half of your sleep time could be spent in the lighter stages of REM while you’re tossing and turning. Or you’re snoring so loud that your partner isn’t getting any sleep either. Now both of you will be drifting off around 2 p.m. at work tomorrow… and that’s not helping anyone.

Vaccinations 101: Why You and Your Kids Need Them

Posted by Stacy Covitz on Aug 18, 2017 10:28:29 AM

Back to school: a term that can send fear down the backs of students, and joy to their parents. For many adults, August means shopping for new school supplies and perusing the remnants of Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. However, parents often fail to attend to a more pressing matter: procuring important annual vaccinations for their young students. Although the state of Texas mandates that children receive a certain set of immunizations prior to enrolling for, or attending school (you can find a list of required vaccinations here before school starts), these obligatory shots are often vague. Moreover, many parents fail to either have their children receive additional recommended vaccinations or even immunize themselves. Amber Hyde, MD, family medicine physician at Methodist Mansfield Medical Group, unpacks some of these ambiguities.

As the pressures of professional and personal life mount, stress becomes an increasingly prominent issue. Stress, the state of mental and emotion tension caused by adverse or demanding circumstances, is one of the leading causes of poor mental health. Unlike physical health, mental health refers to one’s overall physiological well-being; however, physical and mental health are positively correlated and affect our abilities to participate in healthy behaviors. Our partners at the Mayo Clinic have found that symptoms of stress can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, and obesity.
