It is the summertime and we hope the living is easy but sometimes the least expected happens. Families face all kinds of pressure during the summer time: the kids are bored; there’s not enough money to go on that perfect vacation; the job is stressing you out and you have no idea how prepared you or the kids will be by the time for everyone to go back to school and work when it’s all over. Luckily veteran holistic physician and author of The Emotion Code, Dr. Bradley Nelson, has tips to share on how to enjoy a stress-free summer.
Beating the Summertime (Stress) Blues
Even though summers are supposed to be relaxing, they can be stressful. In one survey, a third of Americans reported that they find themselves more stressed during the summer than any other season. Here are some of Dr. Nelson’s tips for enjoying a more relaxing summer:
1. Plan ahead and be flexible about your expectations, whether it’s summer activities for the kids or vacation plans. Everyone else has expectations and sometimes they won’t match with yours. Plan for spontaneity. If you allow the plans that others have to be a part of what brings you joy, you’ll have more fun as everyone shares ideas and activities. Be the one who makes the vacation fun for others and it will be more joyful for you.
2. Be aware of what your body needs. This includes healthy food, plenty of water, rest and exercise. So don’t throw your routines out the window when you’re on vacation. Get plenty of exercise so you’ll feel good. Continue eating healthy. You’ll feel better about yourself if you’re really taking care of your body.
3. Decide to take care of yourself emotionally. You may need specific things such as the emotional support of a spouse, a lunch date with a friend or even just some time alone. Decide how busy you want to be – or not be. Say “no” to trying to do too much if it interferes with your health, family time or if it feels like it’ll cause too much stress for you.
4. Communicate with love. If you’re feeling stressed by interactions with family or others, take a breather. You might go outside for a few minutes to get some fresh air. Be kind to everyone, including yourself. Give hugs. Make sure you’re not overreacting. None of us communicate perfectly. Try to see what others really mean, not just what they say. Give them the benefit of the doubt because it’s likely no offense was meant. Ask for clarification and react appropriately, with kindness, love and forgiveness. Some people really don’t have a handle on their behavior but it doesn’t have to affect how you feel or be your problem.
5. Choose Your Emotions: Most people have this mistaken belief that our emotions choose us; that we are at the mercy of whatever emotions we tend to start feeling. But the reality of it is, no matter what the circumstance is, we always are choosing our own emotions. It’s important to recognize that fact. You don’t always have control over what happens to you but you can choose to respond proactively.
6. Identify and release “trapped emotions,” unresolved feelings from past negative and traumatic events emotional baggage can cause us to make wrong assumptions, react emotionally and contribute to anxiety, depression and most forms of illness.

Patient safety is important to every hospital marketing effort. Yes, health care is still a business like any other business. How can patient safety improve? One way is for doctors and nurses to wear shoes built for comfort that can also serve as a health monitor. Now there are syncing technology shoes that can:
- Motivate a person to get out and walk
- Monitor your heart rate and blood pressure
- Responds to voice commands
The new line High Lights are an incredible innovation, and the perfect mix of comfort, useful tech, and affordability. The team at high beams crammed much of tech in these shoes with more still to come. Here is a list of what synching technology shoes can do:
Voice activated Head light system: One single light, is super powerful and discreet. Simply say “lights on”, and the lights come on and shine up to 50 feet with 180 degree radius.
Fall Notification: A series of built-in gyros also other sensors, trigger a fall alert if the shoes are at irregular positions for a time. A pressure sensor in the sole lets the shoes know if the wearer is in the shoes or not. The shoes vibrate and the lights start to blink to alert the wearer. If the shoe receives no response from the wearer, the shoes make a decision. Once the shoe determines a fall has occurred, it takes action.
Alert Messaging: Once a fall has been detected, the shoes send messages to the contacts that have been programmed into the app. included in the message is a location map.
Follow Up Phone Call: If the shoes receive no response from the wearer or the messaging, they start calling the people in the app. If there is still no change…alarm is issued and last text At this point the shoes trigger the phone alarm (via the app) to each person the phone app list, and last text is sent.
The Shoes Call 911: The shoes notify emergency services via phone call, (and text where available).
The new High Light series can monitor heart rate and blood pressure at regular intervals and send vitals via text to care givers or family. Each shoe has the technology already inside, all the user needs to do is select the options they wish to use, via the phone app. Our team is working on other technology, like drug monitoring, to prevent accidental overdose or to remind the wearer to take the medicine.

On Friday, June 2, artist Mirta Kupferminc and psychoanalyst Tova Shvartzman will discuss art, Judaism and psychoanalysis in conversations with University of Maryland professor Saul Sosnowski, at the Library of Congress. The lecture and short film will take place at noon, in Dining Room A on the sixth floor of the Library’s James Madison Memorial Building, 101 Independence Ave. S.E., Washington D.C.
The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not needed.
Kupferminc is director of “LABA-BA: Laboratorio de Arte y Cultura Judía” and Shvartzman is its director of content. The program, which supports artists’ fellowship programs in Argentina, is based on “ LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture” at the 14th Street Y in New York, where a mix of visual artists, writers, dancers, musicians and actors are brought together to study classic Jewish texts in a non-religious, open setting. Kupferminc will share her recent works including a video presented in Venice during the commemoration of the 500 years of the Venetian Ghetto and images for her site-specific installation in the third Jerusalem Biennale in Israel. The installation, “Traduttore-Traditore” represents a destroyed Tower of Babel. Shvartzman, a writer, poet and psychoanalyst by profession, will discuss the Tower of Babel, as it appears in the Bible, in conjunction with “The Library of Babel,” by Jorge Luis Borges.
Moreover, Sosnowski, professor of Latin American Literature and Culture at the University of Maryland at College Park, will moderate the panel. He has written many books including “Borges and the Kabbalah: Paths to the Word” (images by Kupferminc and text by Sosnowski). The program is sponsored by the Library’s Hebrew Language Table and the Hispanic Division, in cooperation with the Embassy of Argentina. Visit loc.gov for more information.
Today Hulu announced that the Emmy-nominated series East Los High will end with an hour-long finale this fall. The show was one of the few scripted digital realm series created by Latinos with an all-Latino cast and majority Latino writing staff. The National Hispanic Media Coalition says the cancellation of East Los High is a loss for diversity in entertainment. The series became one of the Hulu’s top 10 shows, helping draw one million unique visitors monthly to its Hulu Latino page. Additionally, East Los High won the award for Outstanding Online Series at last year’s Latino Impact Awards, hosted by the National Hispanic Media Coalition.
Alex Nogales, president and CEO of the National Hispanic Media Coalition said:
“The ending of East Los High on Hulu is a tremendous loss of a show that celebrated diversity through the story it portrayed and the way it broke barriers in the entertainment industry as one of the only series to be created, produced, written by and starring Latinos. Viewers are already looking for the next series that will boldly represent them behind and in front of the camera and NHMC will continue to work with Hulu in their future efforts to support diverse and culturally relevant programming over the long-term.”
The show was the first original series on Hulu to be granted a fourth season – the big break that Latino creatives needed. The series has staffed Latino writers, including alumni of NHMC’s TV writers program, on every season and they need more opportunities to tap into the immense talent in their communities and put their stories on the screen.
Mauricio Mota, executive producer of East Los High, accepted NHMC’s Latino Impact Award for the series saying, “We are still going through what I call a “Rosita Parks” situation with Latino content both with studios and media: You can be here, but please stay in the back of the bus. We want your eyeballs but not your stories. East Los High was created knowing audiences were starving for content that was diverse, edgy, and creative. It’s a show about English-speaking Latinos, but it relates to audiences everywhere.”
Watch Mota’s acceptance speech here:
Nine graduates of NHMC’s Latino TV Writers Program were staffed on East Los High. The writers program, accepting applications, is a five-week, total immersion workshop that simulates an actual writer’s room and participants develop an original pilot, practice pitching their writing and learn how to market themselves and get an agent.
The NHMC Television Writers Program, sponsored by NBCUniversal and Disney/ABC Television Group, was created to expand the number of Latinos working behind the camera, as a way to increase fair and accurate portrayals of Latinos on television. During the 2013-14 television season, Latinos composed only 2.8 percent of writers staffed on TV shows, despite that Latinos make up 17% of the U.S. population.
About the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC)
The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is a media advocacy and civil rights organization for the advancement of Latinos, working towards a media that is fair and inclusive of Latinos, and towards universal, affordable, and open access to communications.
It’s wedding season and swimsuit model Kate Upton sat down with Yahoo Style’s recently to discuss her insecurities about wearing a bikini, her weight as well as her plans for her upcoming wedding. Here are some highlights from Upton’s interview:
Swimsuit Model Kate Upton Says She’s ‘Still Not Confident in a Bathing Suit’
Yes, even a super model like Kate Upton has body image insecurities. She says she is still not confident in a bathing suit. This is why she eats healthy and sticks to a work out routine to feel at her best. Upton says:
You always have struggles. It’s not like I always feel my best. Everybody has moments where they don’t feel confident in a bikini. It’s what we’re striving for: self-love. We work our way up. When I don’t feel my best, that’s OK.”
Yahoo Styles asked Upton is she trying to lose wait for her wedding day. The answer is no because she is not worried about a number. Why won’t Upton lose weight for her wedding? Here’s her complete answer:
“Honestly, because coming from the fashion world, weight — when I first started modeling — was very important. How much you weighed, how much you needed to lose, whatever it was…I’m not trying to be fit for a number on a scale. Whenever I’m happiest, I try to maintain that. I don’t need a number.”
Upton does not even stick to a strict diet. Instead, she tries to eat healthy, work out and keep up a healthy lifestyle. Upton does this because she wants to allow herself the freedom to enjoy what she eats. In the interview Upton admits “I weight-train, which also really helps raise my metabolism and gives me the ability to enjoy food.”

With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day coming up, people are searching for ways to honor their parents. But what about those who have unhappy or estranged relationships with their parents? Veteran holistic physician and author Dr. Bradley Nelson is here to discuss how to let go of emotional baggage we hold onto from our relationships with our parents.
Healing Relationships and Preventing Drama for Adult Kids
As grownups we often have a hard time letting go of painful emotions associated with our parents due to our vulnerability when we were kids – the people who know us the best sometimes can hurt us the most. Dr. Nelson, author of the bestselling book The Emotion Code, has been treating patients and researching and lecturing internationally for more than 20 years on healing “trapped emotions” that damage our health and wellbeing.
“All of us experience negative emotional extremes at times. Sometimes, for reasons that we do not yet understand, emotions do not process completely. In these cases, instead of us simply experiencing the emotion and then moving on, the energy of the emotion somehow becomes ‘trapped’ within the physical body,” he explains. “So instead of moving beyond your angry moment, or a temporary bout with grief or depression, this negative emotional energy can remain within your body, potentially causing significant physical and emotional stress.”
Dr. Nelson can expand on these tips for releasing emotional baggage:
- Take into account your parents’ emotional baggage. Heart-Walls™ are energetic barriers made of accumulated trapped negative emotions that can prevent people from freely giving and receiving love. When we understand that our parents’ hearts may be blocked by fear, anger or other negative emotions, it can help us to have compassion, forgive and let go of our own emotional baggage.
- Speak your mind without creating drama. Dr. Nelson shares how to cope with insensitive family members – and where to draw the line. The key: “Make it a non-emotional situation.”
- Learn from your parents’ mistakes. Look at mistakes in a positive light – they helped you learn what NOT to do.
Above all, we should seek to approach our relationships with our parents with humility rather than blame. “Your parents are just human, they’re not supposed to be more,” he advises.

Are you searching for a sales app or way to grow your business, make it thrive? To make it happen you need to know your customers. Knowing your customers includes information on where they live, work, dine, play and shop. This will give you the opportunity to show them where they can find the goods and services they want at any time.
To help with your business development, it’s a good idea to take advantage of a best in class geo marketplace app.
What is a geo marketplace app?
It is an app built to bring you posts from locations near you as well as from around the world. It can take your business post globally within seconds. A geo marketplace app that does this well is the Let’s Deal App. This app lets you be in charge of what you want to view and post in your neighborhood or anywhere in the world.
What I love about the Let’s Deal App
What I love about the app is that it is designed to use on multiple platforms, including Android, Apple and by the web. I think it is really cool that users have the options to buy and sell locally, ,globally and seamlessly. This type of geo technology is really valuable to each seller/ buyers as well as retailers because certain products and services sell better based on location and interests. So it truly helps increase sales by helping target buyers find quality goods and services – whether that’s in your local community or beyond. Yes, you can sell internationally, not just domestically.
It took me only seconds to snap a photo from the in-app camera, upload to the gallery and enter details about my products and services ( i.e. price and geographic location). It is so easy to use. I love that I can see what items are posted by others, there are some great deals locally and around the world.The filters and focus available to users makes the Let’s Deal app truly show how refined geo search can make all the difference in sales.
Moreover, app users can live chat with buyers and sellers. All I had to do was press the chat button to ask a seller about more details on a product or service. It also made asking buyer questions easy to do. I could write a message to have the post owner immediately receive an alert by push notification from a mobile device. But my favorite part of the chat feature is giving buyers a special opportunity for me to make an offer custom to their needs via messaging.
I even like the accept and manage trade feature so I can give offers in exchange for other offers on the marketplace. I feel it’s invaluable that entrepreneurs can help each other out by getting what they need to get a job done through trading goods and services. It’s like being at a in-person marketplace but having the flexibility to mingle with all kinds of people and cultures.
The Let’s Deal App is the geo marketplace the international business community has waited for. It gives me the freedom to be firm and flexible depending on how I want to sell and promote my offers. I also enjoy the opportunity to promote my post for higher visibility and ranking when I need it most. I highly recommend every day people and retail business owners to take advantage of this great app. Let people all over the world know about the great goods and services you can offer to them today.
