WTF is when you work in an office each day. You waste time getting there. You waste time looking a certain way to fit in with the office culture. You waste time making small talk with the same people. Asking, “How was your weekend?” is getting old. Your feet hurt. Your back hurts. You are tired. And you are stressed knowing you have to do it all over again the next day.
WFH is an acronym for Work From Home. #WFH began trending on social media after The Corona Virus Task Force issued a Stay At Home or Shelter In Place or Work From Home order to everyone to help avoid its spread.
Some people have always worked remotely so it’s nothing new. Others freaked out.
There’s zero to freak out about. Remain CALM. Working from home is better for you.
I’ve been working remotely for decades, so I can share why it works, and how and why it’s easy it to stay healthier than those in an office. Contrary to popular belief, there are less distractions and you seriously get more done without sacrificing your health or life.
Occasionally, I take on an assignment that requires me to be in a physical office. Those times reinforce they are a colossal waste of money and space, not to mention people’s time. If you can do something using a computer or phone in 2020, why waste a minimum of four hours getting to and from an office. Makes no sense.
Ever wonder why a lot of business leaders boast about deals being made on the golf course? It’s because people are relaxed there. Good luck making a deal on a crowded B-Train from Brooklyn to NYC or any place you are squished like a sardine.
When you work in an office your stress begins upon waking up. Tired. Again.
WTF. You’re already in a bad mood because you need more sleep, but know you won’t get it. When you set alarm knowing you need to get to a bus, plane, train or bus it places your body immediately goes into fight or flight mode, which right off the bat releases Cortisol, the stress hormone. Your fat cells are already gearing up to preserve them since they think you’re in danger. You are in danger. You’re in danger of illness from chronic stress.
vs. WORK FROM HOME WELLNESS WFH. When you set your alarm to wake from home you wake up smiling. There’s no rush. In fact, if you’re wise you start to give Gratitude and stay in bed a little longer giving thanks and praise for blessings. Then, you can stretch. Your body is relaxed already releasing feel good Endorphins and Oxytocin to start your day off healthy. It’s proven fat cells shrink when you’re well-rested. You have time to Meditate. You do. You glance over at your To Do list written the night before knowing you’ll tackle it. No stress.
WTF. WTF. You need caffeine and are the walking dead and quite cranky until you get your first cup of coffee. Coffee dehydrates you and has no health benefits.
Don’t believe the hype.
WFH. You don’t need coffee. You start your day with hot water and lemon, which hydrates you, cleanses and activates your metabolism for the rest of the day. You wake up alert, not groggy when you need a cup of coffee. That tells you right there which is better for you.
WTF. You bring your gym bag to work because you plan to go to the gym afterwards. By the end of the day all you want is to get home in your pajamas with cookies and a tall glass of milk. Your favorite part of the day will be when you change into your pajamas. Think about that. It’s a real WTF.
WFH. You start your day with exercise which gets your brain and body energized to start the work day. Nothing is rushed in the work from home life. You’re in the zone. Your favorite part of the day is when you closed that deal, wrote that script or learned something new. Your favorite part of the day is no longer the end of it.
WTF. You will not get enough sleep because by the time you get home, run errands, eat something, try to relax it’s way past your bedtime. This sleep deprivation will be chronic and slowly erode your health. You will begin to feel aches and pains and be moody and quite unpleasant to be around. You will snap at people when you get home, so your relationships will suffer. You just got home from work, so can’t be expected to do anything. You want to be left alone. If you have a spouse or children or pet –who want or need your attention –it’s a recipe for disaster.
WFH. The sleep you’ve been getting shows in your calm demeanor, and you feel great. No aches or pains and your skin looks better and you’re even keeled. No bad moods. People will comment you look younger than your age. You have time in between calls to toss in laundry and do a bit of cleaning or walk your dog or hug your spouse.
WTF. You are always hungry while at the office. The Gremlins are alive and well because you’re not getting enough sleep and you’re stressed. You feel like there aren’t enough snacks to keep you going until you can get out of that office.
WFH. You eat healthier because you’ve more time to prepare meals and you have time to make better choices when grocery shopping. You realize you feel better when you eat better.
WTF. No privacy. You have to listen to every conversation in the office. If someone sneezes the droplets land on your desk. If someone brings in smelly food or wears awful perfume –you’re right there having to soak it all in. It’s disgusting. You’re sick of the small talk, clicks and reminder of why you hated high school. Every day you have to convince yourself it’s not so bad as you watch the clock.
WFH. The Do Not Disturb sign is alive and well. Your office is your sanctuary. You don’t have to listen to co-workers gossiping, talking on the phone or kissing up to the boss. No worries about sexual harassment or any other nonsense. You can focus, get your work done and get results.
So, relax. Working from home is amazing. Make sure you don’t have a micromanager for a boss. You want a leader. Here’s the difference.
A leader lets you all know the vision and goals and then delegates tasks. A leader trusts you to get things done. They get out of the way. They ask you to call, email or text (whatever their preference is) them if you need them. These leaders inspire and motivate people with their positivity. Employees love working for this person and go the extra mile for them. They trust you’ll let them know if you need assistance.
A micromanager is the equivalent of a little kid tugging at your shirt while you’re trying to get work done. These people aren’t qualified for whatever position they are in, so they overcompensate for insecurities by brow beating other people. You can spot them because they send questions like, “Where are we at with …?” or ask if you’ve done what they’ve asked you to do right after asking you to do it. When they say people don’t leave jobs, they leave bosses –this is that boss. They have a negative affect on the morale of employees, productivity and bottom line.
WTF. You can’t always leave your desk when you’re feeling anxious.
WFH. You can go for a walk, take a hot shower, make a cup of green tea, call a friend, stretch, open your refrigerator to grab a snack (stock up on water and Better For You snacks when you work from home and healthy foods you can pick on. I blog a lot about those. You can search past articles. Some of my favorites are Veggie Stix, wheat thins, blueberries, cherries, almonds, walnuts, PeaTos makes Cheetos made from peas —and good ol’ chocolate.
How much money would a company save if they allowed employees to work from home? Can things be done differently? Why do people really need to be inside a particular office or building? Can what’s being done in there be done remotely and end up costing less? Can the world prioritize health and family time? Things to think about the next two weeks.
Maybe there’s a healthier way long-term and not just for two weeks.
For now, enjoy Working From Home. Stay healthy!
Coping With Grief: The Range of Emotions
Grief doesn’t just happen after someone dies.
Any traumatic event, major life change, or significant loss — a rape, a divorce, even major financial losses — can cause grief. Throughout the grieving process, you may find yourself feeling:
Coping With Grief: Accepting It
“Don’t try to run away from it; rather, face it head on,” advises Sally R. Connolly, a social worker and therapist at the Couples Clinic of Louisville in Louisville, Ky. In more than 30 years of practice, Connolly has helped many individuals and couples deal with grief and various traumatic events.
“Acknowledge that something traumatic has happened and that it has had a profound effect on you,” Connolly advises. Give yourself time to grieve, but seek help when you need it.
Coping With Grief: Finding Help
You may want some time alone to process your thoughts and struggle with your grief, but it’s important to recognize when you need help from others.
“You might need more help if you find that, after some time, you are not able to get back to normal activities, you have trouble sleeping or eating, or have thoughts and feelings that interfere with everyday life,” says Connolly.
A grief counselor or other therapist may be able to help you cope with grief, and finally start to move past it. Getting your grief out in the open is an important first step.
“Talk about it with someone — a friend, family, a support group. Support groups can be wonderful,” Connolly says. There, you can relate to other people who understand your situation, and you can get advice on what helped them through their grief.
Of course, expressing your emotions doesn’t have to be done out loud. “Write about it,” suggests Connolly. Rather than allowing thoughts to swirl in your head, put them down on paper. This is a great way of getting out your feelings if you are shy or embarrassed about sharing them with another person.
Coping With Grief: Getting Closure
Closure is also an important part of coping with grief and may help you move through the grieving process.
“Depending on the event, developing a ritual to say farewell may be helpful. We have funerals when someone dies and they are a healthy step on the road to acceptance. Rituals can be helpful for other traumas as well,” Connolly says.
Coping With Grief: When Will I Feel Better?
There is no set timeline for grieving. And unfortunately, you may never completely get over your loss. But your loss shouldn’t keep you from enjoying life, even with occasional periods of sadness.
“Let yourself grieve as long as you need to. You do have to resume normal life, but know that it’s going to take a while,” says Connolly.
Look for small signs that you’re coping with grief and getting past it.
“Happy times signal that you’re progressing,” she says. When you realize that you aren’t always dwelling on the sadness or don’t think about it as frequently as you once did,”
If you deprive yourself of the grieving process, you may find that you have more difficulty accepting what has happened or that unresolved feelings and issue
Allow yourself to feel sad and even selfish; eventually you’ll find yourself feeling better a little bit at a time. Even though part of you may always feel sad about your loss, you’ll find yourself happy and laughing again one day.
Experts at the American Academy of Family Physicians note that emotional health is defined by how people handle difficult emotions.
For example, many of life’s challenges, such as the loss of a job or death of a family member, can leave us with a marked sense of sadness and even anger.
Doctors note that the expression of these feelings is critical to maintaining stability both physically and emotionally.
When we feel sad it important to express those feelings to others in appropriate ways or use activities such as meditation or exercise to release the built-up stress.
According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, our bodies react to the way we feel. If we are sad or stressed about a situation, our bodies might respond with a variety of physical systems, such as headaches, difficulty sleeping, and weight loss or weight gain.
When we monitor our emotions and identify how we feel, we can choose effective tools to care for our health. When people do not acknowledge and work through emotions such as sadness, they can often develop unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as overeating or substance abuse to avoid the difficult feelings or to find a sense of comfort.
Dr. Edward T. Creagan of the Mayo Clinic suggests that people take particular care of their health in the aftermath of a sad or upsetting event.
Eating a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy sleep schedule, and talking to trusted friends or a counselor are all helpful tools for coping with sadness. When people use these methods for self-care, they often find that the period of sadness passes within a reasonable amount of time.
When sadness is not expressed or processed in healthy ways, it often can lead to depression. The American Academy of Family Physicians notes that this is particularly common among people who use alcohol or drugs to cope with sad feelings.
Many of these substances depress the central nervous system and leave the individual feeling increasingly more depressed.
People having a particularly difficult time with persistent feelings of sadness should consider consulting a medical professional or therapist for additional support.
People who struggle with healthy management of emotions often find that they benefit from counseling or support groups. Doctors at the American Academy of Family Physicians note that sadness, when not processed and communicated, can lead to destructive emotional patterns, such as anger management issues.
By working with professional counselors or peer support groups, people can learn to identify how they feel and how to cope in healthy ways.
The notion that big boys or big girls don’t cry is a persistent idea fed by popular sayings, but psychologists and researchers say that it’s just not so.
Shedding tears can be a huge and very healthy emotional release, particularly if you are experiencing deep pain, sadness, anger, or stress.
One study analyzed 140 years of popular articles about crying and found that more than 9 in 10 found tears to be a good way to release pent-up feelings.
An international sample of men and women from 30 countries found that most reported feeling relief after a good cry.
And about 70 percent of therapists say they believe crying is good for their patients.
Crying as Catharsis
The main benefit of crying is catharsis, or a purging or purification of your feelings through emotional release. When you cry, you can let go of the tension and sadness and other emotions that have been causing you pain.
In many ways, crying serves as a safety valve that allows you to blow off emotions that have built up too much pressure inside you.
It’s been difficult for researchers to figure out how this works. When tears are induced in a laboratory setting — for example, having subjects watch a sad movie — more often than not the participants report that they feel worse rather than better.
Despite this, people consistently report that a good cry makes them feel better. One recent study reviewing more than 3,000 detailed reports of recent crying episodes found that most people reported an improvement in their mood afterward.
Another study of 196 Dutch women found that nearly 9 in 10 said they felt better after crying.
Another benefit of crying is that it can bring people closer. An Israeli researcher studying the evolutionary aspects of crying has speculated that shedding tears communicates vulnerability to others, since the tears blur your vision and leaves you defenseless.
A person who cares for you while you are in this weakened state can grow closer to you, and the bond between the two of you may grow stronger.
Have a Healthy Cry
Research has found that for crying to improve emotional health, certain conditions need to be met:
But if you can’t stop the tears from falling, go ahead and let it all out — the odds are you’ll feel better afterward.

No one denies peas are nutritious. Whether they’re delicious—that’s debatable. But arguments over taste no longer matter because peas, specifically yellow peas, are being formulated into so many products, they’re unavoidable, and often invisible.
As a crop, the pea has risen and fallen in favor, but today everyone seems to agree that it checks the box against the biggest problems plaguing the Earth: climate, food and health.
From a sustainability standpoint, peas, in the legume family, do everything wheat, corn and soy don’t. They require less water, are drought tolerant, reduce the need for nitrogen fertilizers because they take nitrogen gas from the air and store it in their roots, and make an ideal candidate for crop rotation. Worried about GMO peas? They don’t exist outside the lab. Want to avoid allergens? You’re probably good there too; allergies are rare, another reason peas are leaving soy in their dust.
Mintel, the market research firm, reported that 757 new pea-related foods hit the shelves last year. That’s in addition to what’s already out there, including the most famous pea food, the Beyond burger. With one of the strongest first days of trading for an IPO in the last two decades, Beyond Meat is a prime example of our food system’s new priority: plant protein. Much of the 20 grams of protein in each burger comes from peas, but some comes from rice and mung bean. “One goal of this innovation is to diversify protein sources,” says Ethan Brown, the founder of Beyond Meat. “We believe it isn’t a desirable consumer proposition to have pea protein as the sole protein across our product platforms.” He’s right. Who wants to eat the same thing everyday?

Snacks are increasingly becoming part of Americans meals. We’re not talking about crushed potato chips on top of a casserole or raisins tossed into a salad. Snacks are no longer just munchables for a mid-morning or mid-afternoon pick-me-up, but the building blocks of meals.
“There’s a changed definition of what a meal is,” said David Portalatin, NPD’s national food and beverage analyst. “Today, I might have a piece of fruit and trail mix and call that lunch. In the past, we would’ve thought of that as exclusively snacks.”

“People spend up to 10 hours a day on electronic devices, which directly impacts melatonin production and stimulates the fight-or-flight response system in the brain. – Jenn J. Allen
University of California, Berkeley researchers recently found that insufficient sleep can amplify levels of anxiety up to 30 percent and, on the flip side, that a solid eight hours or so helps reduce stress.
“Deep sleep seems to be a natural anxiolytic (anxiety inhibitor), so long as we get it each and every night,” Mathew Walker, a senior author of the study and a professor of neuroscience and psychology at the university, said in the published report for the journal Nature Human Behaviour.
The study analyzed brain scans from 18 young adults and discovered that those who got a full night’s rest had a lower heart rate and lower blood pressure, as well as stable emotions when they woke.
According to National Sleep Foundation, most adults need 7 to 9 hours a night for the best amount of sleep, although some people may need as few as 6 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day. Older adults (ages 65 and older)need 7-8 hours of sleep each day. Women in the first 3 months of pregnancy often need several more hours of sleep than usual.
There can be underlying causes to insomnia that need to be addressed first because if a you simply take a sleeping pill, you’re masking the underlying cause.
The best way to uncover that is with cognitive behavioral therapy –a fancy name for talk therapy.
Then, you want to set the stage for a good night’s sleep or day if you’re napping.
This is where Glenn Paradise found the ideal solution.
Glenn Paradise invented the dēp sleep hoodie out of a need.
“I wasn’t getting the quantity or quality of sleep necessary to consistently feel or perform at my best. I learned I wasn’t alone and that hundreds of millions of people around the world don’t sleep well.

“I consider myself a problem-solving entrepreneur. It’s in my blood. When I was young, I was side-by-side with my father as he created several businesses that helped people learn faster, perform better, and enjoy their lives more. The gratification I felt from helping people during those early years inspired me to keep the good stuff coming in my professional career. The products and services I create are born from necessity and are designed to help people live more fulfilling personal and professional lives. I know and trust they work because I need and use them myself.” -Glenn Paradise

7 Foods That Help You Sleep by Maria Dorfner
It’s worth repeating. A good night’s rest is what makes you look AND feel your best.
Yet, texting, tweeting, blogging, emailing, facebooking and thinking in daylight can also keep you up at night.
A good night’s sleep isn’t just about being able to wake up when the alarm goes off. It benefits your weight, heart, mind & more.
In a 2010 study of women age 50 to 79, there were more deaths in those that got less than 5 hours of sleep a night.
So yes, it can affect the length of your life AND quality of life.
Sleep also lowers stress, depression, anxiety, improves attention and learning, keeps your mind sharp and one more thing.
Well-rested folks lose more fat. That’s right. It gives a whole new meaning to Snooze You Lose.
All great reasons to stock your refrigerator with these 7 foods that help you sleep soundly. Eat an hour before bedtime:
1. OATMEAL – It promotes insulin production and sleep-inducing chemicals to relax you
2. SMALL BOWL OF COTTAGE CHEESE WITH SLICED BANANAS – The magnesium and potassium are muscle relaxants
4. TOAST – Carb rich foods produce insulin helping you relax
6. WHOLE WHEAT PASTA – Add fresh veggies & diced chicken with tomato sauce; high protein dish that also releases tryptophan
7. YOGURT SPRINKLED WITH CEREAL – You get the calcium and the carb combo to help bring on the Z-z-z-z’s
A good night’s sleep also spurs creativity and improves your athletic performance the next day. It also curbs inflammation. Those that don’t get enough sleep have higher levels of inflammatory problems.
If you are STILL tossing and turning or watching the clock, make sure you are doing the following:
1. STOP SIPPING CAFFEINE AT 2 P.M. – Check labels. You may not be aware what you’re drinking contains caffeine.
2. DIM THE LIGHTS IN YOUR ROOM ONE HOUR BEFORE YOU TURN IN.
3. SOAK IN A WARM BATH TO UNWIND AS SOON AS YOU GET HOME, NOT RIGHT BEFORE BED.
4. CLOSE YOUR EYES FOR 10 MIN. AND GENTLY STRETCH BY PAYING ATTENTION TO YOUR BREATHING.
