Phone Calls Anxiety
Mental Health

My phone buzzes, alerting me of a new voicemail message from my mother. The call was probably a routine check-in, asking what time I’ll drop my daughter off at her house tomorrow. Yet my stomach flutters with dread. I ignore the voicemail. I’d rather call her back directly, or send a quick text: “Does 10 … Read More


How to Fix Burnout
Mental Health

At Parsley Health one of the main problems people come to us with is burnout. This problem has sky rocketed in the past ten years. New technologies are amazing but they’re leaving us all feeling spent. We see too many patients who think they have depression. They don’t. They’re just exhausted, spent and burnt out. At Parsley … Read More


Meditation Mindfulness Negativity

I used to travel a lot for business. These were expensed trips where I’d be wined and dined in cool places like San Francisco, Lexington, Kentucky and Taos, New Mexico. The cities were all so different from my suburban life in Florida. But then my ex would pick me up from the airport and within minutes … Read More


Meditation Creativity Attention Span Focus
Mental Health

For as long as I can remember I’ve been able to sit down and write on command. As young as five I would fill pages and pages of my dad’s old yellow legal pads with nonsensical stories about fairies, frogs and trees that could talk. It’s a skill that’s served me well through the years, … Read More

The difference is small but noticeable; it’s something that compounds over time to dramatically affect my quality of life. As with most things, consistency is key. Although exercising for a week is a … Read More

I’ve always considered myself a healthy person, but not the kind of person who was really … Read More


Mental Health

The New York Times recently called out a new epidemic that I see all too frequently — prescription stimulant addiction. Drugs like Adderall and Vyvanse are being prescribed in droves to teens, college students and often young children for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD, commonly known as ADD), despite the fact that they are known to be … Read More


Meditation Well-Being Prescription
Mental Health

At Parsley Health meditation is prescribed by your doctor the same way an antibiotic or an order for a blood draw would be. This makes us unique in the world of Western medicine—even radical. Where I trained as a physician at Columbia in New York City, meditation wasn’t exactly embraced. When I was a resident in … Read More

Sleep is one of those things we take for granted—like breathing. Unless we aren’t getting enough of it. Until it becomes hard. Until we’re wide awake at 3 am. Until our brains don’t work the way they should the next day. Then sleep becomes priority number one on our to-do list, and for good reason. Lack … Read More
