Men, Mindfulness, & Meditation: Observing the Rising Trend in Men & Self-Care

Notes on meditation from a male:
“I define meditation as little as one minute or longer to reflect upon yourself. How I feel physically, mentally, and emotionally. If there’s something bothering me in any form, this is my moment to identify it and recognize it, rather than run from it. I may not have the answer for it right away, but meditation allows me to adapt accordingly.”

On Seasonal Depression

After all the fall festivities and the joy and warmth of the holiday season, the shorter days and longer nights of snow and rain can wear on a person. Colder climates are tough for everyone, in body as well as in mind. It all can nonetheless be an isolative feeling, despite its pervasive nature and the severity with which it can manifest itself. Indeed, sometimes the post-holiday slump can be something more. Sometimes, it can be seasonal depression.
