I don’t have a coherent post for you today, just a mishmash of various wellness-related thoughts I have stewing in my brain.

Last night, in my dream, I did a Google search.  I have now Facebooked, Tweeted and Googled in my dreams.  Clearly, technology has invaded our consciousness in ways we cannot even comprehend.

I took our two geriatric dogs to the vet for a check-up this week.  OMG.  It cost me $750.00.  It is no wonder people are having to make difficult decisions about pets these days.  Does everyone pay this much?

Do you know people who go to extreme measures for their health, spending oodles of money, but won’t take simple steps like quitting smoking or going for a walk?  Where do you think that inclination comes from?  

Listening to kids explain how they don’t feel well is very instructive, isn’t it?  I need to do better about paying attention when they tell me what they’re experiencing in their bodies.

I think my dietary histamine levels are  too high, especially when coupled with the environmental allergens for which an Atlanta spring is known.  I think I am going to need to eliminate fermented foods and the Brewer’s Yeast (for skin) that I have been on for a few days to see if something changes.

I’ve been thinking a lot about walkability these days.  One of my 2013 resolutions was to walk more.  I find it is so much easier when I have just one kid in tow, but with three it is nearly impossible.  I wonder if people who study walkability take into account the needs of family walkers or if it’s thought of on an individual basis?  What barriers do you face in trying to accomplish tasks on foot?

Do you have a primary care doctor you see once a year?  Or, do you just have someone you see when you are sick?  Or, do you rely on urgent care facilities when you fall ill?  I wonder if the paradigm of the primary care doc is shifting, or, if it would shift but can’t because so many insurance plans require one.  

What wellness-related thoughts have been in your brain lately?  Do you have any thoughts on mine?
