"That's why you have to craft your social smile as carefully as you would put together your resume—it's equally, if not more, important to your career and your earning potential. Start by looking in the mirror, which can be hard because often we're so self-conscious about smiling. Make your widest, cheesiest grin and see how that looks. Then work smaller until you find a "size" of smile that feels comfortable and is not strained."

You let the matter drop and instead introduce her to another colleague standing nearby. You can see that the new employee seems visibly relieved—genuine smile, relaxed eyes, restored eye contact—and grateful for your graciousness."

"Cognitive function is sustained by active social involvement also; over thirty years ago the noted gerontologist Robert Butler found relationships between physical measures of cerebral physiology and social function. In his book The Facade of Chronological Age (University of Chicago Press, 1968), Butler wrote that maintenance of social contacts, social responsiveness, and goals in living were all associated with better brain function. The bottom line? Stay physically and socially active, and keep learning new stuff till the day you die."

"She begged the social worker to see if a tennis shoe really existed on the ledge of the hospital's north wing. To placate her, the social worker investigated the third-floor ledge and was stunned to find a tennis shoe with the same wear marks and specific details the woman described from her OBE journey.6 Examples like this fuel the debate that some OBE experiences connect to remote perception in the physical world. Third, out-of-body experiencers often report buzzing, energy, vibrations, and other phenomena preceding their experiences, which lucid dream reports rarely mention."

You may need to wait until your neurochemistry quiets down some. You will know the right thing to do. Going Out for "Coffee" You can still enjoy the social part of going out. Get the same cup and fill it with something new. Enjoy the ritual part and take out the part that is difficult for you. Let someone else order for you so you don't have to stand by the goodies case.

"They include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, specific phobias, and social anxiety disorder. They all share the physical symptoms of the severe stress response as well as a similar dysfunction in the brain, namely a cognitive misinterpretation of the situation. The common denominator is irrational dread. The differences are mostly a matter of context. Someone with generalized anxiety disorder tends to respond to normal situations as if they were threatening—the Nervous Nelly who is afraid of her own shadow or the worrier who sees stressors everywhere."

"When I ask my patients about alcohol, the vast majority tell me they do not drink except on rare social occasions. If they have a chemical sensitivity, they often report that alcohol gives them an instant headache and horrible malaise, so they tend to stay away from this drug. So for the great bulk of patients who consult with me, alcohol is not an issue. For those who do use it, moderation is critical or else your sleep could be affected. I'll mention caffeine as a treatment for fatigue in the next chapter."

"Living in an environment with more sensory and social stimuli, the lab tests showed, altered the structure and function of the brain. Not only did the rats fare better on learning tasks, but their brains weighed more compared to those housed alone in bare cages. Hebb's definition of plasticity hadn't included growth. "This was at a time when it was almost heresy to say that the brain could actually change," says neuroscientist William Gree-nough—who, as a young graduate student during that period, was keenly interested in the Berkeley work—"especially in a physical way, through experience."

Emboldened by her experience in kayaking class, Jessie signed up for the leadership course being taught by Mr. Zientarski.

"She speculates that one explanation might have to do with serotonin, which is increased by social interaction and in turn enhances neurogenesis. Both isolation and prolonged exposure to Cortisol reduce the number of serotonin receptors in the hippocampus. It might be the case that even though running increases levels of serotonin, without enough receptors for it to plug into the neurons, it can't do its job."

"Another study, in Alameda, California, found that close social ties, marriage, and belonging to a religious or community organization had profound effects on lessening the risk of death from cancer, heart disease, and stroke.

"In such cases, the remainder of the patient's social or personal life may be ruined, because of the need to rest the second she returns home from work. Having had to curtail activity substantially from what it had been, that patient would fulfill the revised 1994 criterion for CFS. There's been some fine-tuning of the case definition since 1994, especially by researchers from the Centers for Disease Control, but the basic framework for diagnosis remains the same. Fatigue Plus Is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome For some individuals, severe and long-lasting fatigue is the only problem."

"Thereafter, the patient's fatigue had to produce a substantial decrease in personal, social, job, or school-related activities. The new case definition did not provide a guideline, however, on how this "substantial decrease in activity" was to be determined. When I speak with patients whose fatigue has lasted many months or years, I ask them to tell me how their fatigue has altered their lives, and whether their fatigue has produced a mild, moderate, substantial, severe, or very severe reduction in their activity for each of these four areas of life."

"Raising animals was a biggie, but the domestication of grains was the real turning point in population growth and social history. Now there was micronutrient-dense, calorie-dense plant food that humans could cultivate when and where they wished, as well as store and transport. Grains allowed humans to survive and thrive. More humans, more genetic copies; your genes were and continue to be delighted with this turn of events. But not so fast. Planting, cultivating, harvesting, and preparing grains without machinery require a massive expenditure of energy."

"Increasingly, social and family pressure is brought upon patients to take prescribed drugs. Patients can be forced by the courts to take medication as a condition for staying out of jail. In many states, if a mental patient refuses to take medication, he can be involuntarily committed as an outpatient. Mental-health workers can actually invade the individual's home to force long-acting injections of highly toxic drugs into his or her body."

"Mark did not go to school a complete year because he was always sick, and his behavior and social skills got worse. We began home schooling . . . and began looking for ways to treat his health and behavior. We took him off all reflux medicines but continued to use antibiotics and sinus medicines. "I had been to Dr. Frieden in the past when I needed a chiropractor, and I went back to see her again for some problems I was having. My dad was on NES, and so I discussed Mark's health and NES with Dr. Frieden, and we made him an appointment. Dr."

"A currently popular one posits that a volcanic explosion 71,000 years ago—one far larger than the one that is thought to have changed world climate during the eatly 530s—led to a millennium-long ice age in which cooperation was so strongly favored that only those humans able to form larger social organizarions survived.*1 Survived, and flourished. The best estimates suggest that human population growth and geographic range reached its nadir approximately forty thousand to seventy thousand years ago, when a global census would have numbered possibly only a few thousand individuals.

However, Peter admits that the female field is more difficult to influence bioenergetically because it is made more complicated by the menstrual cycle and the complex hormonal cascade of events, at both the physical and bioenergetic levels, that females experience every month."
