July 2018: The Big Summer Issue

A word from our midwives:

Happy Summer, Everyone!
It is a time to relax, reflect and enjoy. We tend to slow down in the summer and stop to enjoy the little things more. Remember to take time for yourself, smell the flowers, sit in the sun and watch the world grow. Keep a positive attitude, smile at the world and try to love each minute. We are so busy most of the time that we forget to enjoy each moment. We here at The Birth Center want you to let the world pass you by this summer and enjoy watching it ride past as you rest and enjoy.                             - Becky

This month, Lyn Christian talks about focus & multi-tasking. 
How Agile is Your Focus?

Do you pride yourself on being an exceptional multi-tasker?

Do you juggle numerous priorities?

Maybe it’s time to take a clear-eyed view of how multi-tasking and juggling affect performance.

In recent years, an incredible amount of research has been compiled against the perceived benefits of multi-tasking, revealing that it’s really not the path to a quick, agile brain.

Unfortunately, this is something government officials at the FBI had to learn the hard way. A story from The Washington Post details how the Bureau undertook a new case-management software project in 2003, and how it became the perfect example of why multi-tasking doesn’t work. Millions of dollars were wasted on a system that was doomed to fail. One bright spot in this tragic example comes as talented scientists and engineers began examining why it was such a colossal failure. And because they are smart and humble, they evolved ideas you and I can use in our daily lives.

Our nutrition contributor Anne Dorsey,
of Milk & Honey Wellness on Summer Sun Safety & the importance of Vitamin D!

Summer is here! And with it tons of sun! We have been told for years to cover up and avoid the sun, for fear of getting skin cancer. Even with all of the focus and effort put on using sunscreen, melanoma the deadliest form of skin cancer, continues to rise. So should we really be demonizing the sun or is there another underlying reason why skin cancer has been increasing over the years? Instead, maybe we should be out in the sun making Vitamin D.
