8 Brain-Healthy Activities for When You Disconnect to Reconnect

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

Disconnect to Connect for Your Brain Health and Overall Wellbeing

In March, we are meditating on the brain to pursue a gentle, organic detox of it. Some powerful memes for this month: 

  • disconnect to reconnect
  • prioritize time to be unplugged

We are not looking for ways to disconnect from technology because it's bad. Rather, by unplugging from technology, we are looking to gain invaluable benefits from when we disconnect to connect—or disconnect...

Eating healthy and maintaining your social networks are two brain-healthy activities

by Lily Kamp and Sophia Ruan Gushée 

 

The term “brain health” is a daunting one. The brain is one of the largest and most complex organs in the human body, serving thousands of different functions every second. When we talk about brain health, we are referring to the ability to remember, to concentrate, and to maintain clear, active thought. Basically, brain health is our...

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

Making breakfast for my children is feeling harder each week. We're all sick of having the same thing. And trying to make it a healthy breakfast is even harder!

One simple recipe that helps is a homemade pie that's so healthy that I serve for breakfast, snacks, and dessert. Made mostly of squash, it's relatively healthy and gives me a break from our routine.

According to the School of Public Health at Harvard, winter squashes are rich in the following...

Simple Tips to Detox Your Home and Body

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

Our toxic exposures is a complex topic. However, effective solutions can be simple.

After studying an average family's toxic exposures and sharing what I wish I knew sooner in my nearly 500-page book A to Z of D-Toxing: The Ultimate Guide to Reducing Our Toxic Exposures, I noticed a practical strategy in reducing our toxic exposures: Go back to basics.

 

Back to Basics

Chemicals that comprise our household products don’t stay in the products:...

Yesterday, I had the honor of speaking to employees at BlackRock, a global investment firm that is based in NYC. I was invited by the Families at BlackRock and Mindfulness networks to share 10 Simple Tips for Healthier Living.

One question they asked of me in advance was, How do you prevent a toxic mindset and stay positive?

As I prepared my presentation with that question in mind, I couldn't help but be honest: yoga. My yoga practice guided me towards...

You could have EMF sensitivity, and not yet know it

Those with EMF sensitivity feel much better in nature, and some feel more healing from skin to earth contact

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

I suspect that EMF sensitivity (also referred to as electromagnetic hypersensitivity and electromagnetic sensitivity) may become as common an allergy as are nut allergies. And with so many people addicted to your phone (I'm guilty of that too), it makes sense that EMF sensitivity will increase.

The good news is that once you are aware that you are...

5G Rollout: How to protect our health from this new type of EMF radiation

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

Should we be worried about the 5G rollout?

5G is the next wireless communication network that is supposed to work even better: with greater speed for a greater bandwidth of data transmission. (Most of us currently use 4G.)

You can read more in my article "What is 5G and the internet of things (iot)?"

5G will be rolled out worldwide, and aggressively throughout the United States. This has many people wondering, Will the 5G rollout be safe for...

Homemade lemonade is a healthy family- and after-school activity

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

My 9-year-old loves making lemonade. There have been several occasions during which I have watched her work really hard to squeeze a dozen lemons manually for her small glass of lemonade. Impressed and touched by her determination and work ethic, I decided to blow her mind (and give her hands and fingers a break) with a Breville citrus juicer. It has brought many benefits into our family.

Depression: Does social media make it worse?

by Lily Kamp and Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

In 2019, social media is among the greatest constants in of our lives. We wake up and we lie in bed, responding to notifications and subsequently scrolling and scrolling before we’ve even brushed our teeth. The “mindless scroll,” as it is popularly designated, continues throughout the day—on the train or bus to work, during lunch and bathroom breaks, and at various other times until we go to bed, when we again check...

diet kitchen Feb 08, 2019

Updated by Sophia Ruan Gushée on January 8, 2021

Whenever I dive deep into the safest pots and pans, I am surprised at how complicated it is for me to choose pots and pans that feel safe for my family. My conclusion: There is no such thing as nontoxic. Every option has a different set of benefits and risks. However, what feels most comfortable for me is cookware made from materials that are better understood after a long history of use: cast iron (without enamel or ceramic...
