How are you showing up for yourself this week?

When I ask that, I mean a few things:
🤩 Are you making decisions based on your goals and values?
✨ Are you allowing time for self-care, whatever that looks like for you?
🙅‍♀️ Are you setting healthy boundaries with friends, family, and coworkers?
🌿 Are you spending time grounding in nature?

These are the small decisions we make throughout the day, week, and year that make all the difference when it comes to mental health. You are valued and valuable - owning this starts with showing up and doing the work. You can do it, and you're not alone!

Schedule a visit with one of our mental health team members if you want someone to walk the path towards mental wellness together. ❤

Big, virtual hugs,
Dr. Pickworth

Happy first week of spring! One of my favorite springtime activities is getting outside for hikes and going to the tulip festival. What are you most looking forward to this season?

One of my favorite things about the Pacific Northwest is the ability to eat with the seasons and visit with local food companies and farms at the many farmers markets in Portland! Working with seasonal produce helps me to feel grounded in my intuitive eating practice, which is always a work in progress. 🍽😋

One seasonal produce item that can be harvested as early as March are nettles, which is also a medicinal herb! This plant is also called stinging nettles, because the leaves small hair-like structures that cause a stinging sensation with itching, redness, and swelling.

Nettles are very nutrient dense, meaning they have a lot of vitamins and minerals that are naturally occurring. They have been used topically and internally (as a tea or sautéed - do not eat nettles raw!) for centuries to help with joint inflammation, pain, allergies, blood pressure, and blood sugar.

All of us here at NWIM love working with herbs to support patients' health and wellness goals, and the seasonal aspect is just a bonus! 🌿

Big, green-thumbed hugs,

"I often find that taking the number of the scale off the equation when we talk about things like pain or mental health is very freeing for people, so they can start to BE in their bodies."

Anyone else feeling a major uplift with the increase in sunny days in Portland the past couple weeks? ☀️🤩

The sunshine is more than just vitamin D - although that vitamin is super important and often deficient in us PNWers. Exposure to sunlight actually increases the secretion of serotonin, our "happiness" neurotransmitter. 🥰😎

Sunshine also helps us to have better quality sleep and promotes the release of the compound nitric oxide, which lowers our blood pressure and promotes heart health! 😴❤️ Make sure to check out Dr. McLendon's upcoming blog post about how to improve your sleep for more tips on that topic.

Big, sun-shiny hugs,
Dr. Pickworth
