Donovan Baldwin's curator insight, 4 September 2016, 19:41

For years we have heard about the health benefits of exercise.

 

We have even learned that exercise was good for brain health.

 

However, a recent study indicates that exercise can actually help the brain regenerate neural connections and grow new brain cells in a process known as neurogenesis...something that I was told several years ago could NOT happen.

Mindfulness is being aware of the present, with attitude of openness and non-judgment. Psychologists found mindfulness can help you overcome low self-esteem
Sandip Roy's insight:
Do you often find telling yourself off with “It happened because I’m never any good”? Or, “I always mess things up”? Do you often put yourself down because you feel you are less than others? Did it occur to you that it could be low self-esteem causing this?

The river that dies, kills all its fish. If you can't quite love yourself, you can't quite love others. Love begins with you.
Sandip Roy's insight:
That’s perhaps an irony too. We can help patch up two different people, but we can’t show them how to patch up with themselves. Because of the same guilt we carry in our minds – the myth that self-love is selfish love.

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People | Happiness India Project | Scoop.it

Life is stressful enough for most of us. Allowing a toxic individual to ravage your immediate environment can cause havoc in your mental well-being, which can lead to physical challenges.

A bad state of mind not only affects your physical well-being but makes it difficult for you to respond calmly under pressure. Ninety percent of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions, so your ability to perform effectively can be affected if you do not adopt strategies that will allow you to deal with toxic people.

Don Wilson's curator insight, 13 July 2015, 17:52

Emotional Intelligence is a great skill to possess. It will truly benefit your life and everyone around you. If you are a student, parent, husband, wife, employee, employer; entrepreneur, teacher, preacher. If you are a man woman, or child, EI, can help you release damaging toxins, left by toxic people (and you too) that add undue stress, tension, and pressure; and free yourself, by improving your mental state, which in turn, increases your health and performance.

 

Other benefits include, but are not limited to; lower blood pressure and hyper-tension, blood sugar levels (diabetes), headaches, back and stomach pain. Paranoia, anxiety, and other related symptoms.

 

I am a student and practitioner of EI; and I have grown and benefited from it greatly, and so can you.

Great Ways to Deal with Toxic People! 

Alicia Newton's curator insight, 14 July 2015, 14:07

Great article on avoiding the quicksand of toxic people. I practice many of these techniques. Boundaries; many you will have to love from a distance and it's ok. Being clear that just because people have the right to say what they want doesn't make it true about you; keep it moving. There will be positive & negative people. You get to choose who you will lend your energy to.

What Are Best Friends For? Happiness!

What Are Best Friends For? Happiness! | Happiness India Project | Scoop.it
One person's happiness spreads through their social group even up to 3 degrees of separation, and that the effect lasts as long as 1 year. It is not only the number of direct ties but also the number of indirect ties that influence future happiness. The better connected are one’s friends and family, the more likely one will attain happiness in the future.
Sandip Roy's insight:
William Rawlins, the Stocker Professor of Interpersonal Communication at Ohio University, says, “I’ve listened to someone as young as 14 and someone as old as 100 talk about their close friends, and three expectations of a close friend that I hear people describing and valuing across the entire life course.” 1. Somebody to talk to; 2. Someone to depend on; 3. Someone to enjoy

Pharma needs a digital blueprint to stay successful

Pharma needs a digital blueprint to stay successful | Happiness India Project | Scoop.it

A digital strategy is important for pharma to remain relevant. The need to connect with both patients and providers via digital formats and mobile devices has been dictated by the successful penetration of these types of marketing, educational and engagement tools in other aspects of our daily lives. Healthcare providers expect this evolution in the workplace as well.

Pharma’s traditional collaboration with KOLs (key opinion leaders) has been successful. The quickest way to facilitate adoption of a digital pharma model of interaction with providers is to use the KOL, which is a trusted and respected leader. There is a need for physicians who champion online interactions, realize the value of social media and are familiar with best practice digital and mobile health technologies to be involved in new industry initiatives. These initiatives include furnishing needed information to both providers and patients based on evidence and experience.

The digital pharma business model has heretofore been one of a direct to patient/consumer play. It is well appreciated by industry that it is hard these days (if not impossible in many circumstances) for pharma clinical liaisons (pharma reps most trusted by physicians) or other agents to engage physicians directly due to organizational policy restrictions, lack of available time in between those 15-minute patient visits or. worse, at the scrub sink or OR lounge. I would submit that these encounters need to be redesigned to be one of a ‘pull’ by the physician and not a ‘push’ by industry.

Digital both allows for and encourages new business models. What if a provider could, by way of a digital profile, determine what individualized type of encounter was preferred (in-person, secure text message, e-mail, safety alert, published clinical study results or a combination thereof)? This would reduce marketing budgets for the industry while creating focused high-value proposition interactions based on provider preference. Digital KOLs will be used to help design, implement and lead adoption of content and presentations (both static and live). This would amount to an Amazon-type one-stop ‘shopping’ of digital pharma education for providers.

These ideas are admittedly out of the box. But physicians are thirsty for meaningful information and data provided by pharma while requiring a convenient and trusted means of obtaining it. Digital KOLs will be helpful in creating awareness and presenting the value proposition of digital to their peers at professional society meetings. 

The FDA just presented its guidance document on pharma and social media. This should only serve to enhance the industry’s digital presence, not discourage it, as some have hinted.

Digital as a DTC strategy needs to close the patient engagement loop. I submit that the only way that can happen is with involvement of clinicians. There is a historically a mistrust of the industry by the public. Healthcare providers must be involved. They are the ones who have the relationship (strained as it may be in 2015) with the patient. In addition, no digital technology is a solution. It only becomes a solution in the context of human interactions and processes built around it. Therefore, the technology necessarily involves a provider. Otherwise, these tools never become solutions.

There is presently much industry buzz about quite a few prescription drugs going over the counter (OTC). This will necessitate significant efforts devoted to patient education focused on safety and self-management. There are great opportunities in this arena for digital technologies. The delivery (‘prescribing’) of digital tools to patients can take place with results monitored by both providers and industry. KOLs in this space are needed in this critical time of creating awareness not just of products, but of ways in which digital interactions between industry and providers will take place. Scientific liaisons and sales and technical support personnel will still be critical players in the process, but the means of interactions will evolve.

Clinical trials are moving into the mobile technology arena (see Parallel 6). Physician KOLs need to help pave the way for this new model as well.

Pharma is doing progressively more marketing research and marketing via digital technology. The use ofmobile devices is catching on in the industry (see Prolifiq) . Digital health advertising is big business (seeMcCann Health and InTouch Solutions). Other targets of interest are online physician (Doximity, Medscape) and patient (Treatment Diaries, WEGO Health) communities, general social media sites (Facebook, Twitter), and even electronic records companies (Practice Fusion). 

I believe that the use of physician KOLs can markedly increase the success of these strategies. Many physicians do not encourage patients from seeking medical information online. They would if they had better tools to use. Therein lays the value proposition as a win-win for pharma. KOLs will be provider champions of prescribing digital tools (including appropriate online sites, apps and other tools). Ultimately, the primary objectives of better provider-patient, industry-provider and industry-consumer relationships and improved patient outcomes we constantly hear about can be facilitated with the use of excellent digital tools.
