Q&A with Dr. Terri K
Dr. Terri Kennedy answers your questions about work, health and purposeful living.
Q&A: My blood pressure is high and, because I have a family history of heart disease, my doctor said I may have to go on medication. He recommended getting my stress levels under control, as well as losing about 10 pounds. I frankly don’t know where to start. I’ve never been successful with diets and I have a lot of pressures on my new job. Can you share a basic game plan? I’m only 41 and I really don’t want to go on meditation!
Q&A: Starting this New Year, I’ve recommitted myself to my health. I work out 4 times a week (which includes cardio, weights and yoga). I don’t eat beef or pork but love chicken, fish and tofu. I’m looking to create a simple eating plan that will allow for enough protein and carbs to keep me going. What do you recommend?
Q&A: I have a small financial advisory firm based in New York City and I just bought a house in Philadelphia to lower my cost structure. I have decided to keep my New York office… commute in three days a week and work from my new home two days. How can I manage my schedule so I still grow the business, have a social life (I am single) and not burn out!
Q&A: I am 34 years old and pretty much have accomplished all of my academic goals. However, I am learning that since I got married – it’s been a little over a year – I am really unable to focus on anything. My eating and my exercising have all taken a hit because I haven’t been able to focus. As a result, I’ve gained 15 pounds due to consistent binging. Even my reading is taking a serious hit. I can’t finish any book I start before I see another one that I’d much rather read. Could you please share some things to help get me back on the right track?
