Do you have some free time? Even a minute? Here is an activity for everyone today:  create a daily reminder to take your medications

Reminder Suggestions:

-Set your cell phone alarm or watch alarm to go off when it is time to take your medication
-Put your pills next to an activity you do every day such as brushing your teeth or making a pot of coffee
-Make a reminder card and put it in a visible place
-Have a family member or friend that you see often remind you

This is a great opportunity to reflect on your lifestyle and habits and figure out what reminder best suits you. Get creative with this activity and come up with a reminder that really expresses who you are and reflects your  lifestyle. After all, we are all unique individuals with varied activities and habits.  You can think outside of the box on this one and utilize visual, audio or interpersonal tools. Share with your friends and loved ones what you come up with and let us know what great ideas you create!

If you have any questions or concerns about your medications, do not hesitate to ask your doctor. Nobody knows you better than you so its important to proactively communicate with them.

Go on and get started with the reminders. Tell your friends and loved ones about the activity too.

Happy reminder-ing!


Hello world!

Hi everyone! Some of you may remember me from back in the day when I was a tiny little munchkin. My name is Preeti Gupta, the daughter of Drs. Rakesh and Neelam Gupta. I grew up hanging around the office and going on hospital rounds with my parents so I’m sure I’ve met many of you. Well now that I’m all grown up (sort of) here is what I am up to: I am now 23 years old and pursuing a Masters in Public Health at Boston University School of Public Health. I am specializing in Social and Behavioral Sciences which basically means I learn how to promote healthy behaviors and facilitate overall wellness. That is where the idea for this blog stems from. I’m here to provide insight into concerns about physical and mental health, wellness and prevention, based on what I learn in my classes and current research. I’m so honored to serve you and I hope you find this blog helpful and heartwarming. Can’t wait for this journey to begin!
Hola a todos! Algunos de ustedes me pueden recordar cuando yo era una nina. Mi nombre es Preeti Gupta, la hija de los Dres. Rakesh y Neelam Gupta. Crecí pasando tiempo en la oficina y pasando rondas en el hospital con mis padres, así que estoy segura que he conocido a muchos de ustedes. Pues, ahora que estoy crecida (más o menos) esto es lo que estoy haciendo: ahora tengo 23 años y estoy estudiando para mi maestría en la Salud Pública, en la Universidad de Boston en La Escuela de Salud Publica. Estoy especializando en las Ciencias de Social y la Conducta, que básicamente significa que trato de promover conductas saludables y facilitar el bienestar en general. De este programa y mis estudios, tuve la idea para escribir este blog. Estoy aquí para les dar ayuda sobre las preocupaciones de la salud física y mental, y sobre el bienestar y la prevención, basado en de lo que estoy aprendiendo en mis clases y la investigación actual. Es un gran honor para mí a servirte, y espero que ustedes encuentren útil y conmovedoro este blog . !No puedo esperar de comenzar este viaje!
