Back in the early '90s, I was involved in hosting numerous Ayurvedic doctors from India here in the states. I remember, on a handful of occasions, how they expressed concern at the prevalence of menopausal symptoms here in America compared to what they saw in India.

After seeing patients around the US, a group of the doctors suggested that the underlying cause could be that women in America commonly work, exercise, compete and push themselves excessively during their menstrual cycles, much more than women in India. In India, it is traditional for women to rest and not schedule excessive activities during this time.

This is not to suggest that women are less capable or less productive than men. In fact, I think the contrary. I regularly marvel at how much women accomplish daily as moms, wives, partners, career professionals, and social organizers while providing the essential glue that holds most families together.

According to Ayurveda, during the menstrual cycle, there is a downward flow of prana (life force). The menses phase is considered an introspective time, where they pull back the bow once a month to recharge the body, but more importantly, to re-establish a connection to their silent, intuitive, and spiritual center.

Interesting article from NPR​ about kids + screen time.

Check out my research on children and technology here: bit.ly/2L5fu5C, including such tidbits as around 46% of smartphone users say that they “couldn’t live without” their phone, and one in three would rather give up sex than their cell phone.
