Stopping Rumination


It has long been known that women get depressed more often than do men.  The answer to why seems to be in how men and women handle distress.  Studies show that men are more likely to use distraction as a coping strategy while women are more likely to persist in trying to think through interminable, unaswerable, why questions.  Psychologists call this ruminating;  Grandma called it worry.


 Have you ever wondered where that old wives tale about “counting sheep” as a cure for insomnia comes from?  Well, I think I have a pretty good idea.  Today I want to talk about sleep, because, as it turns out, good quality sleep is at the very foundation of health and happiness.  In order to have really good sex, it is helpful to start out with healthy emotions and a positive outlook on life.
