Eating related issues are a part of almost everyone's lives in some way. According to statistics, at least 30 million people of all ages and of all genders suffer from a clinical eating disorder, with estimates much higher for those that go unreported. Even more shocking is the every 62 minutes, at least one person passes away as a direct result of an eating disorder & that eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of ANY mental illness.
On today's show, Kelly McAdams, MSW, LICSW and New England Regional Outreach Manager at Monte Nido & Affiliates, joins us to talk about how we can talk to a loved one who we may think has some sort of eating related issues.

Our mind and body connection is undeniable. Sometimes what we feel actually shows up physically, known commonly as somatic symptoms. Yet, there is ONE body part, that tends to carry emotional pain more than others.
Q: Which one?
A: THE HIPS!
Americans, on average, spend over $143,000 in a lifetime EACH on self-care methods to help de-stress, but some of the best and most effective ways to take care of ourselves can be done without spending anything. As summer approaches, MORE stress can be added, especially if you have kids at home. (Source)

As we head into Memorial Day, I want to share with you one of the most powerful stories I have done in my career as a storyteller.
I am from a military family, and have always had tremendous admiration and respect for the service men, women, and families, that truly give more than we could ever imagine to defend our rights.
I know that there is a tremendous amount of discourse among us as a country, but it is stories like these and heroes like the men and women who so bravely sacrifice their lives for our freedoms that I try and keep at the forefront of my mind today and, truthfully, most days. Without these sacrifices, there would be no arguing because our freedoms wouldn't exist.
This Memorial Day I plan on taking some time to honor those who sacrificed so much for so many.
I hope you'll do the same.

Tech is a lot like our minds. It can either be a huge asset, or a huge contributor to mental, emotional, spiritual and overall health issues.
There is however, one app I recently found that I want to share called Moody that has helped me in both mind and body acceptance on my way to reviving my happiness and wellbeing before summer.
This app is mainly for women, (although if you are male you can track your moods too:) Moody asks you to put in some key info related to your menstrual cycle that can help offer some clarity on why you may be feeling extra down, or maybe like your body has changed overnight. I know these mysteries of emotionally fluctuations, sadness, and body aches seemed like they were my fault, or I was doing something wrong for so many years when in realty the answer is that our hormones are at work each month contributing to these changes. For me, just acknowledging and staying on top of this has helped me understand, Im not just in a bad mood or sad, it's really just my hormones. Knowing that, and knowing that these changes will pass has helped me change my story and be less MOODY regardless of what time of month it is.
So if you're looking to track your moods and body more carefully for a deeper understanding and to help you on your journey to happy and well, check out the app HERE!
We all have ups and down, but knowing the story behind it can lead to greater happiness, peace and wellbeing as we ride those waves.
