What is Anxiety?

  
  
  
Anxiety

The Medical Dictionary defines anxiety as “a painful or apprehensive uneasiness of mind, usually over an impending or anticipated ill.” This definition would suggest that anxiety seems to be a normal part of being human. All of us have worried about things like our finances, our health, or the well-being of those closest to us. Anxiety is even a healthy emotion, because it motivates us to plan for our future and, take care of ourselves. For example, without some anxiety, we might not pay our bills on time, watch what we eat or install smoke detectors.

#FallBack Daylight Saving Tips

  
  
  

Daylight savings time is coming to an end and that means it’s time for clocks to fall back an hour. For most people, that process isn’t as simple as merely adjusting the time setting on their alarm; getting your body adjusted to the time change can be a difficult, and literally painful, process.

Changing the time you go to bed and wake up can have negative effects ranging from reduced mental acuity and emotional stability to—surprisingly— pain.  Why the pain connection? During sleep, the body releases  natural painkilling substances and hormones. These natural opioids assist in healing the mind and body after a day full of activities. Many people who endure pain find it difficult to get quality sleep, and vice versa—creating a vicious cycle leading to more sleepless nights and painful days.

Here are a few tips doctors of Advanced Pain Management offer to patients to improve their amount – and quality – of sleep.
