most underutilized source of health in our times
finger- wagging paternalistic physician whose advice is often
related to eliminating vices is rapidly becoming a dinosaur in
a new world where humans are viewed as inherently good. Emerging
instead is the physician/educator who provides patients “permission”,
encouragement and support to engage in activities that provide
pleasure without being self- destructive.
“prescribing” of responsible pleasures is based on
a worldview of the universe as loving, beautiful and bountiful.
Man is viewed as inherently good and deserving of enjoyment so
that “thou might be enjoyed”. Modern neuroscience
is scientifically validating the medical benefits of pleasure
and the modern principles of behavioral medicine can be applied
to this growing field.

what pleasures are most suited to you

healthy pleasures are free or low cost. They include the pleasures
of the body, the mind and spirit. Simply putting more hugs and
laughter in your daily life is a start. It just takes a bit of
pressure on all of us is a great adversary but we will discuss
ways to cope with this.

face (no rush) knowing that you lived life fully and well and
knowing that you had your share of moments of fun and pleasure
and on occasion sheer bliss.
