Training für gesundes Altern: Willkommen auf der Langstrecke - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Wir wissen heute, dass man das biologische Alter durch bestimmte Maßnahmen deutlich beeinflussen kann", sagt Sven Voelpel, Altersforscher an der Jacobs University in Bremen und Autor des Buches "Entscheide selbst, wie alt Du bist. Was die Forschung über das Jungbleiben weiß". Mit kleinen Veränderungen bei Ernährung, Bewegung oder Schlaf lassen sich biochemische Prozesse im Körper anstoßen, die die Wahrscheinlichkeit deutlich erhöhen, gesund alt zu werden. "Aber nicht nur körperliche Faktoren spielen eine Rolle", so Voelpel: Auch die Lebensführung, soziale Kontakte, die Arbeit und Hobbys können viel dazu beitragen, geistig und körperlich jung zu bleiben.

Sweden sees benefits of six-hour working day in trial for care workers | World news | The Guardian
Reducing working hours for care workers reduces their sick leave, makes them feel healthier and improves the care they give to their patients – but comes with an appropriate price tag.
In February 2015, nurses at the Svartedalens retirement home switched from an eight-hour to a six-hour working day for the same wage – the first controlled trial of shorter hours in Sweden in about a decade. - https://www.theguardian.com/books/2012/jun/29/how-much-is-enough-skidelsky-review & https://www.theguardian.com/theobserver/2013/aug/25/robert-skidelsky-interview-good-life

The Contribution of Primary Care Systems to Health Outcomes within Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Countries, 1970–1998
[ was cited in following papers - bit.ly/1NebFR4 ] [ Barbara Starfield M.D. ] (1) Strong primary care system and practice characteristics such as geographic regulation, longitudinality, coordination, and community orientation were associated with improved population health. (2) Despite health reform efforts, few OECD countries have improved essential features of their primary care systems as assessed by the scale used here. (3) The proposed scale can also be used to monitor health reform efforts intended to improve primary care. //&! avaresearch.com/files/20100401061256.pdf

BBC One - Panorama, Hooked on Painkillers
[ Risk of physical dependency. Can processed foods be a crutch for emotional hang-ups, stress release, as a reward after a stressful day, week and develop 'emotional' dependency (quick fix, no stigma, no barriers to access, no stigma, label, prejudice -- vs -- mindfulness, meditation, therapy)? Same with the obvious bad habit (habit forming) to reward yourself with binge drinking on Friday and Saturday after your work and or the S.A.D takeout: prevalent amongst the precariat ("my reward after a hard working week"). Obvious coping mechanism. Soft drugs and accepted, without stigma, amongst society. ] Doctors in the UK are prescribing record doses of highly addictive painkillers.

Mindfulness has huge health potential – but McMindfulness is no panacea | Jon Kabat-Zinn | Comment is free | The Guardian
[ you own only your thoughts, emotions and health (fitness) ] [ you have to function ] Mindfulness is often misunderstood – so let us be clear about what we are encouraging. In essence, mindfulness – being about attention, awareness, relationality, and caring – is a universal human capacity akin to our capacity for language acquisition. It is a way of being in wise and purposeful relationship with one’s experience, both inwardly and outwardly, with oneself and with others. Thus there is an intrinsic social dimension to its cultivation as well. It usually involves cultivating familiarity and intimacy with aspects of everyday experience that we often take for granted.

Why CBT is falling out of favour | Life and style | The Guardian
‘Researchers have found that CBT is roughly half as effective in treating depression as it used to be’ [...] Perhaps every era needs a practice it can believe in as a miracle cure – Freudian psychoanalysis in the 1930s, CBT in the 1990s, mindfulness meditation today – until research gradually reveals it to be as flawed as everything else.

How Meditation May Change the Brain - NYTimes.com
But now, scientists say that meditators like my husband may be benefiting from changes in their brains. The researchers report that those who meditated for about 30 minutes a day for eight weeks had measurable changes in gray-matter density in parts of the brain associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress. The findings will appear in the Jan. 30 issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging.
M.R.I. brain scans taken before and after the participants’ meditation regimen found increased gray matter in the hippocampus, an area important for learning and memory. The images also showed a reduction of gray matter in the amygdala, a region connected to anxiety and stress. A control group that did not practice meditation showed no such changes.
