I am a news junkie. Perhaps it comes of my former career as a journalist, but it's probably the other way round. I've always had an interest in news. I like to know what's going on, especially in politics and science.

But I also have anxiety. Anxiety and news do not always get along well.

What a summer. My body has been on a roller coaster. We didn't get summer here in Oregon until July--mid-60s and sometimes colder! And then when summer hit it was WHAMMO! 95 degrees. Now? After a period of 95-degree weather we're back down in the 60s, with no mediating period. Suffice it to say my body is not happy.

When my body is not happy, I don't exercise. When I don't exercise, I get anxious. When I get anxious, I am afraid to exercise. Argh! It's a hard cycle to stop.
