Incorporating Gratitude in Our Lives:

Sometimes achieving our goals/ambitions/dreams does not give us the happiness we expect. There a few reasons for this:

    • It’s human nature to want more. Just like getting a bump in our salary rarely results in more financial savings because we increase our lifestyle to meet our new financial situation, the same is true emotionally.

Sex and the Hormone Connection:

According to the American Medical Association, 43% of women and 31% of men in the U.S. suffer from some form of sexual dysfunction. Research studies are beginning to recognize sexual function changes associated with stress. Stress can have tangible effects on our reproductive system. It disrupts sex hormones, which can lead to sexual dysfunction and decreased sex drive in both women and men. Of course, one must also consider other possible causes of sexual dysfunction that are not stress-related, such as vascular disease, nerve damage, prescription medication, and chronic medical disorders.

Talking Points from Dr. Cira
On Anger & Depression:

  • Being depressed zaps our energy and makes everything seem harder, including thinking and feeling. Essentially, someone who is depressed has very limited emotional bandwidth.
  • If you’re low on energy and patience, everything is going to seem like a chore, including interacting with people. Every last bit of energy you do have is going inward, just trying to put one foot in front of another, so that’s a lot less energy you have to be kind, thoughtful, or empathic.
