Southampton, NY—On Tuesday, July 12, Southampton Hospital celebrated the addition of two diagnostic services to the Hospital’s radiology site at the Hampton Bays Atrium. Women can now receive bone densitometry and mammography with tomosynthesis, thanks to funding from the Ellen Hermanson Foundation. These important services are already offered at the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center at the Hospital, but adding them to the Atrium increases access to these services for women living west of the Shinnecock Canal. For appointments at the Atrium, please call (631) 723-1232.
Meditation forces one to disassociate oneself from one's mind and emotions. It is probably the easiest to learn and the most accessible tool for personal development on the planet. It can be done by people with disabilities. Children can do it. Stephen Hawking can do it. Any conscious person can practice it. You can do it on a crowded bus. You can do it in a monastery. You can do it in your bedroom. You can do it now as you read this article. Experienced peace inhibitors can even do it while they sleep. The health benefits - mental, emotional and physical - are incalculable, and there are no side effects. You can learn it in as little as five minutes, and you'll never forget how to do it again. Doing it for at least 10 minutes a day can make you happier and healthier, and a daily practice of 30 minutes can change your life.
