The Seven Days Wellness Issue, 2018

Admit it: the resolutions we made three weeks ago look a lot like those we made a year ago … if not five years ago. But, as this issue highlights every mid-January, wellness is about more than eating better and exercising. (Keep that up though, especially when in the care of cardiac rehab specialist Dr. Philip Ades.) Sometimes the best way to heal mind, body and soul is to slow down, as we learned at a new somatic movement studio in Montpelier. Some therapies get a little messy, like the slick ayurvedic treatment that soothed a writer in Stowe. Pot can be relaxing, too. Just be sure to partake safely — once it's legal. Meantime, you could meditate with THC's legal cousin, CBD. And when munchies strike, discover the healthful magic of miso.

    This special issue highlights consensus favorites alongside unknown individuals quietly doing an outstanding job. We sought out Vermonters who went above and beyond in roles that became more difficult or dangerous during the pandemic — from the chefs and community volunteers who creatively kept us fed to the wastewater managers who tested our poo for viral markers. We also surveyed our readers on the people, places and programs that kept them going — and going.

    In his 2014 book Ha!: The Science of When We Laugh and Why, cognitive neuroscientist Scott Weems theorizes that humor is a coping mechanism for dealing with complex messages. He calls it a "response to conflict and confusion in our brain." Thank goodness, then, that Vermont Comedy Club owners Natalie Miller and Nathan Hartswick continued to provide this invaluable outlet even after the downtown Burlington club temporarily closed.
