In these busy times it is easy to feel overwhelmed, worn down and without energy. A recent MSN health article highlighted tips to help energize even the most worn down person. The first tip was to not over analyze and give yourself too many choices. According to the article ”making choices pushes us back and forth, which is energy zapping,” says Kathleen Vohs, PhD, lead author of a popular study.  Research from the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Germany found that gut reactions—even in something as complex as the stock market—often yield the best results. Wearing great colors can also increase your energy level. Warm colors, such as red, yellow, and orange, are more energizing than their cool counterparts. That’s because, according to ongoing research at the Eiseman Center for Color Information & Training, they’re attention grabbing—which activates our brain circuitry. Dr. O’Toole is aware that for many patients the consultation process can be extremely draining. He is committed to making the process as comfortable and informative as possible. Patients considering procedures like breast augmentation and breast lift find the process even more complex because often they are also required to have an idea of the size they would like to be. Dr. O’Toole along with his longtime patient coordinator Sarah is careful to discuss his recommendations with patients while taking into consideration the patient’s desires and concerns. Patients are encouraged to ask as many questions as they feel necessary so that they can be comfortable with their final decision.
