Shedding light on different types of relationship violence:

There are many misconceptions about relationship abuse, one of the most frequently cited being that a relationship free from physical violence is not dangerous or abusive.

This is unequivocally false.

Relationship violence can include different types of abuse such as emotional, financial, sexual, and spiritual, among others.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (aptly abbreviated to SAD) is a subtype of depression that may onset with changes in the season and sunlight pattern of exposure. Typically, SAD follows the winter-pattern of symptoms beginning in the fall to winter months and improving in spring.

Much like hibernating, winter-pattern SAD can include oversleeping, overeating, weight gain, and socially isolating. Although it is not fully understood what causes SAD, possible explanations have included changes in hormones and neurotransmitter actions including melatonin; changes related to vitamin D; and perceived and actual barriers to regular health promoting behaviours during the winter months.

Did you know - in some cases, specialized types of light therapy improve symptoms of SAD. If you think you might be experiencing SAD talk to your healthcare provider.

Today, March 8th, is International Women’s Day. This year’s theme is embracing equity, for the vision of living in a world where difference is valued and celebrated. Celebrate women's achievements. Call out discrimination and inequality. Advocate for women, for yourself, your sisters, your daughter, and friends. Challenge the narrative. And, as Ruth Bader Ginsberg famously said “Women belong in all places where decisions are being made”.

The holidays can be a difficult time for those of us who are grieving the loss of a loved one. It's natural to feel a sense of sadness and longing during this time, and it's important to allow ourselves to feel and process those emotions.
One way to honor and remember our loved ones who have passed is by finding ways to memorialize them during the holidays. This can be as simple as setting a place at the table in their memory, lighting a candle in their honor, or telling stories and sharing memories with family and friends.

It's also okay to find your own way to cope with the grief and find comfort. This might mean taking some time for yourself, finding solace in nature or a creative outlet, or reaching out to a support group or therapist for additional help.
If you are struggling with ambiguous loss - the experience of losing someone who is physically present but emotionally or mentally absent - it can be especially challenging to navigate the holidays. It's important to find ways to support and care for yourself during this time, and to seek out the resources and help that you need. 🫶
Sending love and support to anyone who is grieving this holiday season. You are not alone.

Newest read: Gabor Mate's new book, "The Myth of Normal: Illness and Health in an Upside-Down World," challenges the notion that there is such a thing as "normal" when it comes to health and illness. According to Mate, a physician and bestselling author, the concept of normalcy is a social construct that has been used to ostracize and discriminate against those who do not fit into certain societal expectations.

In "The Myth of Normal," Mate argues that our understanding of health and illness is deeply flawed and that we must shift our focus from trying to achieve a state of normalcy to embracing the full spectrum of human experience. He argues that the pursuit of normalcy is often driven by the desire to conform to societal expectations and that this can lead to unnecessary suffering and even harm. Ps. This book is thick!!

A holiday reminder:

This time of year can be stressful for many people—while we are often sold that the holidays are supposed to be a celebrated time, it doesn't always feel that way.

Set personal boundaries with yourself around how much time or energy you wish to invest in the holidays. Listen to your internal compass that guides what you are okay with and what you are not okay with. As always, you are allowed to say no.

You don't need to accept guilt from yourself or others for making and keeping boundaries, they are part of healthy relationships. It is okay if you feel discomfort in setting boundaries—this is a normal part of the process.

Set an intention for how you want to show up and keep your expectations for the holidays realistic. Be kind to yourself and engage with self-compassion.

When so much of what's happening in the world feels out of our control, it can be helpful to pull back and remember what we *can* control. Our boundaries, our energy, and our behavioural responses are all within our own points of influence.
