Taking the Heat: How Climate Change Is Affecting Your Mind, Body, and Spirit and What You Can Do about It


Meteorologist and Peabody Award-winning journalist Bonnie Schneider looks at how climate change is already threatening our mental and physical health and offers helpful tips to tackle these challenges.

The impacts of climate change have become more urgent. Rising temperatures, volatile weather, and poor air quality affect our physical and mental health in dangerous new ways. From increasing the risk of infectious disease to amplifying emotional stress and anxiety--even the healthiest among us are vulnerable. Bonnie Schneider has tracked these environmentally-linked impacts throughout her career as a TV journalist, meteorologist, and the founder of Weather & Wellness(c)--a platform that explores the connection between weather, climate change, and health. In Taking the Heat, Schneider provides crucial advice from science experts and medical professionals to help you:

-Cope with the mental anguish of "eco-anxiety" and other climate change fears for our planet's future, particularly expressed by millennials and Gen-Z

-Identify health hazards caused by extreme heat and air pollution that disproportionally affect low-income and minority communities

-Uncover how allergy season has gotten longer and triggered new sensitivities for millions of sufferers; learn new ways to reduce the risk of allergic reactions

-Detect the increased threat of dangerous pathogens hiding in unexpected places and why we may face future pandemics due to the loss of biodiversity

-Understand how seasonal fluctuations of sunlight, heat, and humidity can not only factor into feelings of depression and anxiety but also trigger flare-ups for certain auto-immune diseases

-Discover how meditation and mindfulness practices can ease the psychological stress of those impacted by devastating natural disasters

-Explore how the Earth's rising temperatures may affect personal sleep patterns and our brains' ability to store memories

-Learn why increased levels of CO2 in the atmosphere may reduce the availability of what we choose to eat; plus sustainable solutions - from food to fitness

- And more

Anchored in the latest scientific research and filled with relatable first-person stories, this book is an accessible guide for anyone looking to navigate the future of their own health--mind, body, and spirit, in a rapidly changing environment.
