Warning: Be mindful of modern lifestyle

February 19, 2007

Re: ["The Mind, as It Evolves," Feb. 12]: Although the main topic concerned new findings about depression, the diagnosis and treatment the psychologist Stephen S. Ilardi suggests is sage advice for each and every one of us.

"We were never designed for our sedentary, socially isolated, indoor, sleep-deprived, frenzied, poorly nourished lifestyle," Ilardi says. He recommends "lifestyle changes" -- aerobic exercise; ingestion of omega-3 fatty acids; light, positive social interaction; substituting activity for rumination; and increased sleep. A word to the wise is sufficient!
