What helps you get over someone…endless Ben & Jerry’s, wine, yoga, wine, frolicking with puppies???  Renew, an upstate N.Y. retreat for those in need of an escape and help mending their shattered heart can help.  Plus, there’s nothing like getting over someone with another someone! When I gave a talk on mental illness to N.J. State health professionals recently, I was approached by a man who was captivated by my candid experience and now is organizing a support group for men since he had wished one existed when he was experiencing depression. Dancin weekdays are here…Daybreaker’s ( “beatz up” mornings with pre-work yoga and wildly fun dance parties (minus the booze) in coveted venues in U.S. cities and around the world. No need for pumps or the gym – dance, sweat, apply deodorant liberally and off to work you go with a smile.
