PINECREST, Florida. – Following the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. To knock Wade down, mental health experts report an increase in patient anxiety.
“I have quite a few young adult women who are my clients and they came out extremely distraught and disillusioned with what this means for their future. What would happen to the dreams you have for yourself if something happened?” said Dr. Rachna Buxani-Mirpuri, a licensed mental health counselor and owner of Buxani Counseling Services.
Buxani-Mirpuri said it’s important to validate people’s feelings and reassure them that the situation is fluid and can change slightly over time.
sleep habits and heart health
When it comes to heart health, the American Heart Association says getting a good night’s sleep is vital.
The organization recently updated its cardiovascular health checklist, adding sleep as one of eight key areas that measure a person’s cardiovascular health.
The AHA recommends adults get 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night and said people who don’t get enough sleep have a higher risk of obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.
Covid and children
And protection against the Omicron variant of COVID in children between the ages of 5 and 11 was minimal after a single dose of Pfizer’s vaccine, according to a large observational study from Israel.
The researchers said a second dose of the vaccine improved protection to about 50 percent overall, but was higher in younger children than adolescents.
Health experts point out that previous data on children in the United States showed that children in this age group were twice as protected from COVID-related hospitalizations as compared to unvaccinated children.
