Peter Whybrow - Manic America (Coast to Coast AM - May 30, 2005)


During the middle 2 hours, Director of the Neuropsychiatric Institute at UCLA, Peter Whybrow, M.D. (peterwhybrow.com), explored what he calls the "American Mania" syndrome. Americans, he said, are particularly predisposed to being stressed out, overworked and manic. They push themselves to the edge with a 24/7 lifestyle and are overloaded with information and material goods.

But humans are not biologically programmed for such a pace, he pointed out, and this way of living is taking its toll on the populaceŚwith such problems as obesity, high blood pressure and depression on the rise. We need to help people retool and rethink their lives, he said.

Along those lines, he shared the "Rules of Tom," which were developed by an entrepreneur, who sought to get control over his life. They are: 1) Time is a key possession. 2) Use technology wisely. 3) Learn about your appetites. 4) Be physically active.
