Finding Positive Places Online
"Today we're talking about digital self care so nicole had come across a mention of this. This on lied. They called it a self care crawl so in trying to understand what that meant. We decided we just talk about Sort of feel good stops online feel-good places to go online since we can't really go anywhere in person right now so when you're when you're looking to just maybe blow a little steam or just have a little hit of endorphins. Where do you go online nicole. You had some. You had some ideas in mind or you have a little kind of. Yeah will i. I mean yeah so first of all the title was attractive because it may be thinking of other types of crawls around college days liver sadly lost in news core. yeah time but It actually was kind of an interesting idea. Because i thought you know when i if i have been working all day or if i've been out about or If i've been doing housework what am i kind of ways that i carve out time for myself is a computer and then i have like my favorite sites that i go to or you know things that i do is kind of like a little routine right. That's gonna wear. I can escape for a few minutes. I'm not having to shop for anybody. I'm not having to make appointments for anybody. Not having to send emails. Anybody is kinda like that little time that myself and of course you know it's like a total luxury to even dream about some of these things for example you know one of my favorite. To's is the ralph lauren website. And i liked the look at you. Know what's on that site and And then another one of my favorites doubt stops as the kate spade website so this kind of a trend right out the window shopping. But on down cle- yes that's awesome with the online. And then of course i always go to a couple of my favorite facebook groups and check out that because there's really nothing ever negative. That happens on there so that's good and In my face yeah right right kind of a little bit of a Doesn't really make sense. But yeah so i thought we could just kind of expand more on that i mean. What do i mean. I'm sure you both have some of your favorite stops online. That you that you go to or that's part of your day or your routine. So yeah kind of elaborate on the like what or do you just kinda do your work shut your computer down and then you move on. I used to have a list of really fun. Twitter accounts that i would go on and that we made a little bit of respite. I would go and see what all those people were saying. There were always funny and entertaining and then politics happened and twitter just became a surging cesspool of strife and anger. And i couldn't go there anymore because my fun little entertaining twitter people had opinions on things and whether agreed with them or not. It just made me mad. So i had to step away from twitter and facebook also friends who i used to enjoy following to see what was happening in their day day to day life also had opinions and again whether i agreed or disagreed it all just made me angry and that is not what you're looking for when you're doing your self care crawl so i found recently a combination of snoozing everybody who is melting off and joining a a facebook group that was extremely positive and extremely prolific. Pretty much gave me a safe place to go and just sort of reveling in salinas and fun. That for me was a. It's a group of fans of the bobby bones show. They call themselves the b. team. They sort of singlehandedly. Got him memorable ball trophy on dancing with the stars and they have this facebook group that they mentioned it on the show and so it grew by like i think ten thousand people over long it got very large but it's generally not one hundred percent because people are people but it's generally very positive and just go to my newsfeed now in its all be team and that's just fine q. Pictures people's kids fund things that happened on the show pictures that where they saw bobby bones at a concert as just very entertaining in very low stress and very enjoyable so that has been a real self care thing. I highly recommend snoozing all your friends. You don't wanna see right now. Look joining something where people will talk about nonsense
Stop Overthinking by Ali Cornish
"Stop overthinking by Allie Cornish of ever thrived dot org. I used to spend a lot of time overthinking trapped in that never ending what if loop a stress about how intruders might access my apartment? What if I left the candle burning at home, will the hissing radiator explode while at work? What if I made the wrong impression at dinner last night? What if I talked too much more to little. Sometimes, I'd feel for my wallet or keys three times. In the course of a train commute it made my heart palpitations a little less. Often. Ruminate on nonexistent symptoms. What if I had a terminal illness myself diagnosis skin anomaly on Web MD until concluding that I must immediately seek a specialist I visualize my death cream I will divide up. Among members and plan my ashes to be scattered at sea despite a propensity for seasickness. In this real life scenario Sergei thousand seven. Did consult a specialist who after a physical evaluation told me. There was absolutely nothing wrong with me and then I was worrying too much. At moment I didn't feel relieved instead I felt like an idiot. Does a normal part of life to decipher codes and hidden meanings everywhere doesn't every person do this? Actually. No. At The Times where my worrying reached its peak I wasn't happy with my life. My unhappiness was caused by fear which in turn revealed overwhelming incessant worrying as afraid of being alone afraid of failing and afraid of my future. Through analyzing my own experience others experiences and through research of learned that overthinking is a symptom of the distressed an isolated. I've learned that fear can lead to social anxiety and sometimes even avoidance of social activities altogether. People who were afraid of social interaction have a tendency to self medicate through various outlets such a shopping spending hours on net flicks, social media, or abusing substances or food. These distractions may help for a bit but ultimately mask fear helping it fester within our minds until it explodes when we least expect it destroying relationships and our health. When we feel that life is in disorder, we devote too much time to the negative in fear we overthink things and we cling to solutions to the wrong problems. We dwell on things that didn't go well and constantly think of worst case scenarios. Often as a general lack of confidence that causes us to worry more perhaps it's that we feel that worrying will protect us from harm. Yes back in caveman times when we were hunters and gatherers stress did actually protect us from harm as in death via sabertooth tiger. Fast forward to present day we still get the same stress signals from benign sources that aren't life threatening. Now. At the prospect of failing, let's say the portion of the driver's test at the DMV. Our hearts pump three times our normal speed sending more blood to our limbs. capillaries closed down sending our blood pressure up seven. Theoretically quote sustain a service wounded not bleed to death even our eyes dilate so that we can see better and quote. Our bodies and minds have trouble telling the difference between a counter with a sabertooth tiger. Choice test. There are ways we can help our bodies and minds acknowledge the difference to combat overthinking and overreacting we can practice the following. Number one notice and appreciate our thoughts. If, we take account of the situation and put it into perspective. We might be able to understand the reasons behind her catastrophic thinking patterns. Some might suggest keeping a journal to chart the frequency of our negative thoughts. Once we pinpoint the reasons we can take positive action to ameliorate are thinking behaviors. Number to spend time outside. Nature has a way of soothing us taking his back to Simpler Times. All is well when the birds chirping the streams are flowing an animal's scamper to and fro time spent on trail or camping might increase our confidence to a point where there is no room for worrying.

Okay.
But Is It Real
"I've been working this last week with Lens Work Alumnus Jack Curran because he and I are teaching workshop this weekend as part of the out of Chicago in depth virtual seminars that are happening this weekend and in preparation for that workshop, I've been spending a lot of time working with Jack Looking at his work and in particular looking at a lot of the before and after images, what the camera captured versus what he made in Photoshop Light Room in order to create a little bit of artwork from sometimes a pretty bland camera capture and that has me thinking about photography's tenuous relationship with the truth and what we do that is to say the power of what we can do with software. I I came into this idea about photography's tenuous relationship with truth when I visited. Yosemite for the first time in the early nineteen eighties to attend a workshop. Of course, before I had absorbed everything that ansel Adams did in terms of Yosemite and I. I was so inspired by the Yosemite that he presented his photographs and books that I. Thought this is this is fantastic. Going to be a wonderful opportunity to go see the place for myself. But I have to say that when I arrived in Yosemite what I experienced standing there looking at half dome and El Capitan and a Cetera was not at all what I had seen in ansel Adams photographs and I realize that he had made something in his artwork. That was not real in the sense that if you were standing there next to ansel Adams and looking at what it was that he photographed, and then comparing that to his eventual photographic artwork, you would realize how much difference he had created through the craft of photography and the aesthetic choices that he made when he was processing his film and his prints. And I became aware that there is different kinds of. Photographic truth I guess is the way I would call it. My first reaction was to be a little disappointed because. I thought I was going to see something spectacular that only exists in a photograph and so I kind of felt like had been a little bit hoodwinked. But. The more deeply I thought about this in the subsequent decades the more I've come to realize that there are different kinds of truth and one kind of truth might be what I characterize as the physical truth or maybe more accurately the camera truth. That is to say what the camera sees is one thing and that's one kind of truth. And that's the kind of truth that we really insist on in documentary photography and in evidentiary photography and those kinds of things. But rarely do we see that as part of fine art photography? The great challenge that all of us fine art photographers have is not to merely make a copy of what the world looks like or even to accept what the camera tells us and the film. Tells us that the world looks like. But rather work we're interested in different kind of truth. And generally speaking I use in my own way of thinking anyway, the term emotional peak that that's what we're looking for is some kind of emotional peak. We don't want to have every day life presented to us because we can see that for ourselves every single day, what we is something that's a more extraordinary experience we want an emotional peak. So we want think of ansel Adams in Yosemite. Again, we want that high contrast, absolutely spectacular cloud moment of unique and wonderful weather with everything sort of. Dolled up for the artwork. Of course, there are photographers who want just exactly the opposite of that. Think of Lee freelander and Louis Baltin some of that end of the scale of fine art photography but in terms of the more publicly acceptable. Ansel. Adams Edward Weston, those kind of people. That kind of photography is more geared towards some sort of emotional peak. And generally speaking that's achieved by. Pushing everything a little harder than it really is. When the camera captures it that is to say, it's generally we're gonNA push the contrast a little bit we're going to. Increase the. Vibrancy of the collars so that they're more read those fall leaves than they really appear in real life. So it's kind of a hyper reality if you will. And the purpose of that kind of hyper reality. Is I think to. Prompt in us, an emotional response that. Probably. Well. Biologists and physicians and whatnot could explain this better. But I think it has something to do with the release of endorphins and all those feel good hormones that we have in our human system that give us a little jolt of excitement and hyper reality in terms of experiencing
Feel Stuck In Your Career? Try This.
"Was Reading this article in Forbes magazine and sugar is the writer what to do if you feel stuck while everyone else is moving and I thought this is really timely. Because this pandemic has hit everybody differently but pandemic or not. We're creatures of comparison we just are we wanna fight comparison comparison is a cancer. It's an insidious insidious disease. If you let it take over your life however, the fact is, that's what we do. We have is therefore, we look at other people we go. Well, they're making more progress than than I am. And it makes us feel even more stock than we already are. So anyway, I saw this. This is good. I WanNa see what she's got to say. And it's really good I. think she says I couldn't agree more the key to getting past comparison is to analyze yourself. Measure Yourself. The idea is look at what you're doing. Measure your activity. Don't measure yourself against other people's activity. It's just dangerous. Don't do that. The second thing she says is focus on small wins. When you're stuck, here's what happens. You're already dissatisfied with where you sit. And what happens is as you go gosh, I wanted to be. There and we start to look out we we focus so much on. That far away place that we're not at yet. And it makes us feel even more insignificant as opposed to going. I'm stuck I'm not making the progress that I want to let me just go get some easy win some easy momentum. So focus on smaller task smaller winds so that you you feed off of that the endorphins of accomplishment. and. Then the third thing is is make sure you're helping others. You know when you can get outside of your own frustrations, your own situation. And help somebody else improve their situation I'm telling you right now it's like a wonder drug.

20 Minutes With Susan Neal
"So Susan. Welcome to the show. Firstly a big thank-you. It's good to be really great chat. We have today so once again. A massive thank you. I think what I like to start wave is if you could give us a bit of a background to yourself and your experience on the Muslim conversation as we go home okay well Almond Aren. I have an MBA and also a masters in health science. And I am a certified Yoga teacher for over twenty years. I also have written seven healthy. Living Books Two of them on Yoga and four of them basically on how to get off sugar and CARBS and overall improve your health weight and Diet Amazing. Not Something I definitely want to touch them a lot as well as obviously we know that it can be difficult to stick of change on lifestyles for the better of God's nutrition said now be a strong theme proud podcast. And I'm very interested to hear what you had to sail nuts but I think what I I wanted to touch on really is not obviously from your backyard. It's amazing to hear that you use ronin practice really to get yourself back to being fit and healthy when you came to the age of fifty and I think if you could give all audience a of background as that period of your life and what you went through on the procedures you put in place nursing so fight to help and they'll be very interesting. Okay so our at forty five for forty nine years I had great help and then at the age of fifty. I lost my help. I had ten medical diagnoses in two surgeries and it was all from. It stemmed from an abscessed tooth and oh I had Depression Ovarian cysts hole in my retina. Candida infection of my gut vitamin D low. I mean just one thing. After another and my health declined. The doctors you know. Put me on adrenal fatigue. Vitamins Hormone Green this that the other they did the two surgeries and then they were like. Um You know that's all we could do for you so I started looking nurse and start looking at a different alternative methods tried acupuncture massage but the one that was effective was I had a colonic. Irrigation which is like a royal enema because my stools changed after they had put me on antibiotics and steroids. When I had my emergency root ca now and the colonic therapists found that I had a candida infection of my call. One and Candida is a yeast and it grows up normally a pencil in on our body but when you take antibiotics that kills the good guys. You're good gut buddies probiotics and you got in. It allows the bad guys to take over. And some of those bad guys could lead to an auto immune disease it could lead to leaky gut and then for me at led to a candida infection. I went to my internal medicine doctor and he did not know how to treat a candida infection. I had to research on my own to figure it out. You have to Candida loves sugar. Carbs refined carbohydrates and alcoholic beverages at loves the sugar. It takes over your appetite and so you have to. You have to start it and you starve it by going on an anti candied diet. Cutting out all the white sugar white flour white rice even fruits. I had to do that for eight months. Go on a candy to cleanse and then I finally got my house back. It's amazing NASA you. You obviously had versa had led up so you really in the Youtube your health back on track and then obviously you did manage to discover a away technique to to actually nurse yourself to health. Did you struggle? With the first eight months of presumed there was a sort of a transition period. Where you're cutting out all of these processed foods and your body is craving them. Can't SIP is very hard. It took a a lot of self control and and I would take. I'd have one good day and then I'd have three bad days and then I had two good days and I'd had one bad too. You know it was like three baptist. You just don't know if you're ever GONNA get your help back if you're ever going to feel good again so you know my heart was just you know compassionate to others. And that's why I wrote of the book seven steps to get off sugar and carbohydrates because I know how difficult it is to fight those cravings. Yes I think we all really do. They win how a new particularly having to completely strip the mouth yacht. What clicks view. Then that allowed you to go from this Yoyo period of maybe being good for one two days and then having a bad day to actually having sustainable change to your your lifestyle and your attrition in your approach to the foods you intake well you know I did not realize how wonderful it was to be healthy until I lost my house. I lost my health. I was like I'll do anything to get this back in once I gained knowledge and I understood what was taking over my appetite. Then it was like okay. I've got this basically you know this bad back bad yeast and my God. I'M GONNA kill that guy and I'm going to get my life back so you have to figure out the root cause of your problem and then gain knowledge to be able to turn things around and so I created a quiz for people to see if they do have candied infection of their of their guts called Candy Quiz. Dot Com and candy is spelled C. A. N. D. I. Quiz Dot COM view foulland than the record. Obviously it does divert but depending on the person but what's through 'cause you found for the majority of people is it's a lack of knowledge. Is it that? There's on that half that half and not really not one hundred ten percent into it is it because they're not realizing the why of how wiser important to be healthy while you hit it on the nail with the lack of knowledge you know because okay it used to be the low fat diet was the style and now it's the Kito Diet and they're totally opposite in which one is right. Yes so you've got you've got to go to a great resource so I'm an R. N. I have a masters in health and who who looks at the research articles to figure out what is the right way to eat and it's basically back to the garden back to the garden the farm the ranch. You want things to look like they did. When it came out of the garden so number one was lack of knowledge. Number two was like me a Candida and action the third root cause for potential. We not eating appropriately or while is an addiction a sugar addiction. Because sugar and wheat go up to like the brain receptors in our brain. That are the same ones that opiate drugs. Goto so they've done. Mri Imaging and somebody who Um has a food addiction can look at food in those same areas light up in the MRI as they do for a cocaine addict so if you gain knowledge and understand okay. I have food addiction. Then you can say you know what I can use other tactics to release that. Feel good neuro hormone from my brain which is dopamine. I can walk. I can do yoga. I can meditate. I can Hug My kids I can pet my dogs. There's so many ways to get out there and get those endorphins released positively instead of through food definitely thing exercise. You've mentioned on for them. Is it such important one nuts? You really do. Not necessarily you are exercising but the feeling awkward. When you're to release it does really give you a rush a therapeutic feelings. I think that's a you've hit the nail on the head as well. Yes send you see once you gain the knowledge and I have a link in my book where you can go and take tests to see if you do have a food addiction and yet once you understand like I understood that I had to fight the Candida. You get to. The root cause will then. It's not a matter of self control. It's a matter of curing the root cause and when she cured that then you can get your normal appetite pack and happier self control so the the fourth reason was an emotional connection with food in many of us do have an emotional connection with food. And you know we may stuff our emotions with food. stuff our anger or hole in her art. We have unforgiveness resentment or whatever it may be and so. I haven't area my book about cleaning out your emotion
"I wanNA share with you as I mentioned in and episode or two or three back in this series the importance of humor in fact I encourage you as a little challenge to spend some time today or at least before the week ends laughing and kicking back and just taking things a little more easily than maybe you normally do. This is so important and vital for your health. And if you could do this while you're with others you get extra bonus points for that because research shows that win you laugh you actually engage your breath which helps to relax you but you take your mind off of your anxiety and it kind of brings you back down to a sense of balance where things can come into perspective when you are laughing or viewing something. Funny you might think of some ridiculous person you saw or some hilarious reaction to something you saw or just a movie. I really encourage you to do this for yourself today. And I want to share with you as well that the more you do these techniques and the more insight you gain on anxiety the more confidential having yourself and this is going to lessen the fear that arises that contributes to the anxiety anxiety is all about fear and uncertainty so the more you can feel safe having confidence in yourself and also an others in your life then the more you're able to get through life's inevitable challenges. So do things that make you feel confident. Follow your passion a little more. Maybe no one else is interested in what you're passionate about or maybe you just don't follow your passion because you don't have so many opportunities you know. I love to dance and in fact I used to dance a lot but where I currently live besides tango lessons which those are really fun to do. Tampa where I live has a pretty active tango community. But I like dancing individually a lot better and so I just haven't been able to find a dance studio. That's not for children near me. There are some but there maybe an hour from where I live so I just started doing youtube dance videos and really have felt pretty good. I'll wake up in the morning and get all excited and look for a dance video. And I don't mean a fitness aerobic or zoom but type of dance video. I mean a really cool expressive dance class and at first. I found it really frustrating because it took me forever to Google around and find the right dance class but when I think back on it it probably took me an hour total to find something that I really liked and now I do it regularly. That would be the same thing as if I had driven to a dance class and take the dance class just once so when you put things into perspective then it really helps and also gain more confidence because you just feel a little more empowered when you can put things into perspective but it is something that requires practice so the more you show up for yourself and pursue your passion and talk yourself out of giving up the more confident you will feel more. You're practicing confidence. So think about your passion and do it and if your passion involves fitness well you know that it only takes twenty minutes. Research shows of fitness exercise to reduce symptoms of anxiety. You flood your body with endorphins. And there's a lot of recent research that I've really been experimenting with for myself and I'll share it with you here that involves when you increase your body heat which is a natural result of exercise. But even if you go into Asana this can alter neural circuits that control cognitive function and mood and this includes the neurotransmitter. Serotonin Pat feel-good hormone. So researchers believe that you can boost your mood and increase relax -sation and greatly diminish during Zayed's simply by moving to where you build up a sweat where you're generating that heat and I have been noticing some great results for myself so experiments. See what works for you well. I think you're ready for the different meditation techniques so settle yourself down and as you do so repeat our affirmation this week which is each day is a new beginning. Each day as a new beginning each moment is a brand new start. Maybe you thought of something you could pursue this little seed of inspiration can germinate when you feed it so think about it. Come up with a plan and take small actions to accomplish it. You might hold your hands in our mood or for that week. Which is the long mood row which hails from Japan? And it's a simple Mudra to do you bend the knuckles of your Middle Finger. Your other fingers are upright and then you push together your knuckles your middle fingers. Uring finger may want to stay down there. Just try your best to keep it upright even if they attach. You can hold this. This is the mood. That helps to sue sorrow and fear. It's a murderer to help. You see the bright side of things hold loot for up to ten minutes four times a day or for however long you feel comfortable holding it hold it in your lap or at your chest. Whatever feels best

Well thank you for having me. Thank you in. Today's fast. Paced hyper connected society. There's an undeniable increase in people experiencing varying degrees of anxiety. We get loads of email from our listeners. About how they are suffering from all types in at the top of the list health anxiety followed by the fear of having an anxiety attack in social anxiety. I'd love for you to share your view about anxiety being a form of fear. So can I give you a snarl to kind of build out the formation of anxiety? Yes please let's imagine that a mother and father are having an argument home and there's a little one after two year old baby. That's having to endure and listen to the screaming and the baby had quickly crawls off runs to its room. Hide under a bed puts his hands over. Its years closes. Its eyes and just feels a bit shaken by the screaming match this this initial perception of pain without pleasure lost out. Gain negative out positive in the child's perception is stored in a subconscious mind as an instinct to protect away from that response and an impulse to whatever That child procedures. It's opposite of peaceful safe environment now. The next morning after the only match the father goes off to work. The mother comes and gets the baby out of the bed and goes and gets it dressed up and takes shopping out when the when they were screaming the night before the father was wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Had Brown Moustache Brown hair. The mother was wearing a particular outfit. The child had taken this in an filter this nuclear of the Chalice and filtered information going into the corona before it goes into Cortex to be conscious so child's got filtered response there now the next morning. The mother takes the baby with her shopping to the grocery store. And the baby's fine and it's sitting in the basket you know relaxed in a time and all of a sudden they turn a corner. There's a man with blue jeans white shirt brown hair brown moustache. The baby has an association with those stimuli and the baby now has a reaction because she the baby will one of fight or flight response Eliezer getting further the mother protected turning. Its back on the mother to try to protect it or it'll get behind the mother and try to create a response to pull mother away from that thing that associated with the original night before experience. And so it'll have a what is called a an association with the primary one because of associations may with the blue jeans a white shirt brown hair brown moustache so the child is not even aware that it's actually a result of the night before but it just has this instinct to protect itself from this thing that's walking by because of the associations made while the the boy I walked by with blue jeans white shirt goes down the island at NAP. Feel safe and it gets backed. It plays the mummy wonders. Why did the Child Act out for just a second man walked by then it goes around the next quarter and there's a guy with a blue? Jean Yellow Shirt Brown hair brown moustache now. The child has a little less response but still a bit of a response. His now societas with blue jeans and Brown hair and Brown Moustache but now the child has a secondary association with yellow shirt. Now goes down the next aisle and there's a guy with a blue jeans red shirt brown hair brown moustache now. It's Gone Association. Red Shirt then it goes around the corner and sees a guy with a blue jeans. A white shirt blonde hair blond mustache and that associates blindness with that and all the sudden without even realizing it there is a hundred stimulus as stimuli in the environment. Triggering varying degrees of response to the original fear so these secondary tertiary ordinary pit Associations eventually have stimulus to our act a stimuli to create a anxiety response and anxiety responses a compounded original fear that's never been neutralized so now what happens is the child has started to having a hundred different things because now music is playing while they happen to see a guy with blue jeans and a white shirt. Brown Moustache now. That of mood music is now associated and after a while there's hundreds of things in the environment without even being aware of the original event triggering an anxiety response. This can be occurring in health because we could have a scare with some sort of a health response and then we can have secondary association to that it can be social. It can be learning at educational institutions. It can be fitness Exercise to every injury and it can create secondary injuries. Anything that is compounded an associate on top original event that hasn't been neutralized can create anxiety response triggered now if I go back and take that child to that original event and ask a certain set of questions. Make the unconscious conscious of the opposite at that moment and neutralize and balance perceptions. The cascading of the secondary church events dissolve. It's quite amazing how it's done. So there's a way of liberty going back to the original primary event and asking questions to make us fully conscious of the opposite sides. Let's say that you beat somebody that you're infatuated with their. You're a single person or married acting single and you meet somebody and you're highly attracted to him. You're kind of in a fantasy about them. And you're now conscious of the upsides. Things that are attractive. And your unconscious the downsides and as a result of you know you stimulate dopamine oxytocin Kevin's endorphin. Serotonin estrogen. And you've got an attractive response of impulse towards but now you're unconscious of the downsides. That's why you're vulnerable to that impulse or you meet somebody that you resent you. Perceive consciously this way more downsides because of previous experiences in Toronto. And there's no upsides and now you're conscious the downsides unconsciously upsides and now you create a nor peninsular never cortisol. Osteo cows in testosterone response. Now when you do that those chemistries get skewed. You get subjected bias as a as a protective mechanism to accentuate that. And now you split your full consciousness and the conscious unconscious hats anytime you store that you store all of those imbalances in the subconscious mind as impulses toward things and instincts away from it will run your life irrespective of time or space until they are neutralized right doing as you're now asking questions to make you. Cognizant conscious like. Your intuition is a typically do that? He'll you trying to ask you information. That would make you aware of the unconscious at the time. We're conscious of your infatuated. What's the downsides current at that moment if you resent the upside and once they're balanced you free it from the subconscious mind in its liberate into what we call the super conscious? Mind a of love and attitude when it's in love and gratitude is wellness. There's no response. There's no impulses there's no instincts. There's no anxiety secondary responses etcetera. So what I do is I go to the moment when you perceive the original event occurring and you go in there and you identify what you think is more negatives than positives with a father's yelling at the mother and go and find out what's the upsides because I you think well there's no upside. Its downside there's more negative than positive withdraw from it. You try to protect yourself etc. But at the same time you might find that. The mothers disempowered and all of a sudden yelling as she's communicating in a way that goes against his values She's maybe overspend money and he's now reacting or maybe that he's she's had an affair. You don't see the whole picture so you just respond until you ask enough questions to try to find out. What the real dynamical
#162: What Sherrys Not Buying For An Entire Year
"Okay. So it's almost the middle of February and I've been doing this thing this whole year. My plan is to do it for all of twenty twenty this whole year very impressive. It's been what seven weeks month and a half already but I think it's kind of Nice to report about it after a month and a half because I've already I've gotten used to it and it's totally sustainable for me but when I told my best friend about this resolution there was like a long silence and then she said I'm drinking water and I'm thinking about it like I could tell that she thought this was a crazy thing. She knows me at this point. She knows I'm going to do it. I don't know when you told me I didn't think it was crazy but I feel like you should just say what it is are. You should quit the suspense. I'm not going to buy closer shoes for a year. So no new clothes. No new shoes no secondhand closer shoes either like not just new. No purchases for my body and that means like no accessories like purses or jewelry or belts to okay so like anything that might be stored in a closet exactly and my only two disclaimers are obviously if something I need wears out like if something insane happens to like the sneakers I wear throughout the winter and I need more sneakers throughout the winter. I can replace them but I'm not gonNA say like a different color. I would have more variety in my wardrobe if I added that new option. Like they're not gonNA be any options. My other address to this is that I do have to store credits. They're like maybe fifty dollars to Nordstrom and like thirty dollars to old navy. That's what I'm GONNA use if there's an emergency so I feel like even in an emergency I break my one bears shoes. I wear all the time and I need them. I think my bank account is not going to shift this entire year. I don't want to jinx. Might well at least on the clothing budget. I'm sure exactly count is going to shift for other reasons right right right right right but I mean this. This resolution is not just then. I'm going to be like. Oh Darn my favorite shirt representing another favourite Scher. It really is like only staples that I really need to survive my favorite shirt ripped. I just wear my second favorite so I don't think people are going to be that surprised by the challenge because you are already sort of known. I guess is having a very compact or minimal wardrobe but I still think it will be a challenge for you as much as the month and a half so far have not been I think as we get through the year especially as the seasons change like you might realize you're shorter on summer clothes than you thought you were or when it starts to get cold again you feel like the Itch to get something warm. Like a sweater or something. I think there will be moments. Where you have to more consciously fight the urge to buy something because I think a lot of us shop for things you know. Even if our wardrobe feels complete just out of the habit or activity of it or just because you know there is that sort of I guess endorphin when you see something that looks nice or fits you well and you put it in your shopping cart. Yeah you're like I deserve this. No I think you're right that it probably won't shock anyone because I'm a really minimal wardrobe kind of Gal but I also think since we've done things for a month like we did like no spend month I do think twelve in a row is like a bigger fee but I am looking forward to it because what I've realized is that when I make a rule for something and actually makes it much easier for me if I were to say I want to just shop less. I don't know that my behavior would change at all. Like I can't have like fifteen French fries and stop. I will eat a thousand French fries or I have to say. I'm not gonNA eat any French fries this moment. That thing on the menu where you can order a thousand French fries do it every time. But that's what I mean like. Moderation is not easy for me grid. Did a whole thing about this. You guys should listen to it. We'll put a link in the show notes. But it's basically like some people are moderators and they can have like five chips. I don't know how you do it. I'm eat the whole bag. And maybe I should explain where this started so this idea started when we did our closet and it was perfect timing because it was literally like Christmas Day when we were loading our closet back with clothes and I noticed I had a few things still tags on them and also noticed. I had a few things that I've been meaning to alter or change in some way. Like an example as I have this really cute tanktop it's leopard-print of Gore's and those straps are too long and so it's GonNa take two seconds to so it but I felt this Pang of guilt that was like why would I ever even look at a store for something else when I already have things that have the tag on or that. I'm waiting to alter to where I should just do that before. I get something new and so that's where it was born. I felt like my closet is full of things and full of options both options that I wear news and also options waiting in the wings. Why should you add or accumulate? More when you're not using the things you already have exactly so I think that made it really like easier. My mind to see as I was loading my new drawers and pull outs and hanging bars and I think maybe a tip for someone at home who wants to embark on a longer term project. Like this like it's not just for a few weeks it's like something you. WanNa keep up for a long time. I definitely think the first tip could be going through what you have because I think even I- minimalist when I was doing it I was like. Oh Yeah I forgot about this. I wanted to shorten the straps. Like it reminded me of all these sort of outstanding dues and then I immediately jumped to. I should do that before I do anything else. Okay while you were talking. I was totally listening by the way. But I was also googling. 'cause that thing you said about Gretchen Rubin right the moderator. I can't remember the opposite. I look it up on something or it's an abstainer there it is. So that's what you're doing you're abstaining completely because it's easier for you to set a rule when it's black or white like you can have it or you cannot there's not that gray area that a moderator can be comfortable with well. I also think there's a gray area between moderator and abstainer in this experiment because I do believe that you could say something like each season. I'm only allowed to buy three items. And so it's not none for a year but it's also not this like amorphous goal of like. I'm just GonNa shop less like maybe defining one new item of clothing per season or some sort of boundary. That feels comfortable to you will help you but what? I've discovered is I immediately. Love this rule already because when someone is like saying this cute dress and. I'm like have enough dresses. It immediately turns it off in my mind. It's like tiny Hester once. Said if you know you don't eat the Burger and someone says. Do you want a burger? It's a really easy no because I don't eat the Burger and so to me. This is just a very easy no when I'm in old Navy I'm not GonNa look for myself because I'm sure I can find something that's cute and by it but it just takes it off the table and a very enlightening way. Like I feel lighter. It doesn't feel like a heavy burden. It feels like something has been lifted. Well I guess we'll keep people posted throughout the how you do. Yeah well I'm interested to know of something breaks and a half to replace it what it will be because it will probably sound insane. Someone else like I'll be guys my one black tank top. Something happens and everyone will probably be like you had one black tank. Somehow a pack of squirrels got inside my drawer. An olive underwear has gone.
2 Crucial Takeaways From My Secret Mastermind (That Every Woman Needs to Hear)
"Number one. Our EGO gets in the way of so much of what we do like. I said I was the first one to intro myself and share ear my non question with the room and man in hindsight. I'm so glad I went. I what I experienced Maxson in a few more of our meetings was a lot of Egos. Oh showing up and I think a lot of it was out of insecurity I mean. Have you ever been in a room where you feel like you. Just don't belong in it imposter syndrome like we we all have it in. I was quickly reminded that no matter. What stage of the game? You're in you'll likely still battle it like new levels new problems right now before. We're go too far. I want to say I one hundred percent respect and admire every single person in that room. They are kind and brilliant and impact driven men Who have built incredible impactful businesses in? They're all leaving beautiful legacies for their families. Like top notch human beings that I am so blessed to know so in love as I sat back and watched as more of a spectator it became super interesting and super clear. That room of powerful men can quickly turn into a huge huge contest. Who can one up the other? Who has the best questions who knows the most powerful people who story is more moving or shocking it kind? I know like a ping-pong match that I'll be honest. I wasn't not into observing. I mean let's be real like it's utterly fascinating in trust me. I as a human being struggle Duggal with ego. I mean I went. I and I was talking about motherhood and there's this piece of me that was like am I doing enough is my business enough and my great enough. Do I really belong here and like I get it like we all feel this pressure to prove ourselves throughout our lives for a long time. I thought it was just women who had it bad but holy holy cow men have just as many insecurities that they try to mask with their egos. It happens to all of us. We're women many times measure their worth Earth by body image or influence or relationship status or income men measure there's justice rigidly by money and success an impact. They hold themselves to impossible standards just like we do and these men at the mastermind. They have it all like they sincerely of it. All they have money money they have success. They have power yet could still see the straining effort from so many to prove themselves. Isn't it true that our ego can totally screw with with our worth and get in the way of who we truly are in. Who are meant to be? I was so not judging those guys because I could see this truth and I recognized it in myself both. We have this desire to feel seen into feel important. This year has been so good for me in that way because motherhood is actually forced me to drop the expectation to prove myself. I know I cannot do everything and be the best mom and live a perfect life scale business. Like I don't want to do all of that either her why this phrase imperfectly. EMPOWERING WOMEN HAS SORTA become my mission my slogan I want to lead by showing it's okay to be messy and to make mistakes and to learn as you go something. I think our egos hate for us to do. They want us to stay stuck in insecurity. Ego is everywhere. One of my fears in going was that I would hear about all the things that I could do and not having people understand that. Maybe those things don't really appeal to me because because I don't necessarily care to make more money or speak on stages in front of thousands like that endorphin rush a feeling important or more value doesn't trump having having the freedom and wartime for me if we seriously look at time as our currency than the idea of doing these big things all take months even years. It just doesn't Appeal Hilton me. I could easily commit to writing a book or going on a podcast who are running a live event or hosting a giant mastermind. But when I look at the time it was take away from my family it quickly loses its luster for me in that definitely set me apart in unique way number. Two your intuition is your guru. No one else is along the lines with ego. I saw a lot of people interested to get their big question. Answered and to me I saw these brilliant humans would would already built massively successful businesses and wanted to shave them and say you already know what you need to do. You don't need anyone's permission to go. out into it. I WanNa shake today and say this same thing to you. You already know what you need to do. You don't need anyone else's permission to go out and do it. I probably had one of the lower earning businesses at the mastermind. But I can tell you I felt like I had the highest level of contentedness indigenous and connection like I felt grounded. I didn't feel frantic. I felt free to disconnect and be present in the greatest lesson. I've learn this past year is that I really truly can trust
All About Endorphins
"People have been told in the past. That exercise been said to be an aid. Finale everything from depression. Obesity helps reduce stress helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. And so on. But what is really going on in our bodies that gives us this empowering feeling so of course helps that it could be due to the fight that we've gone out and progress towards health and fitness goal. Is that sense of pride against all odds more so than that is due to the release of endorphins so in Dolphins on Anura Chemicals. which get their name from? The word indulgence. Which you've heard before which means coming from within the body and morphine? Which is an opiate pain reliever On Dolphins got the name because they are not true pain relievers. They Act has John. Jesus like pain relievers. So dolphins consists of a large group of peptides the produced by the central nervous system and the pressure tree land so since dolphins act on the opiate receptors. Not Brains they reduce pain and boost pleasure. which results in a feeling of well big saw she happens is the endorphins are released. In response to brain chemicals Kohl's neurotransmitters is and the neuron receptors that dolphins bind to are the same ones certain kinds of medicines by two as well and dolphins. Aw as I said the painkillers produced in response to physical discomfort. The improved self esteem that we do feel otherwise known. As runner's high is a result Zolt of these endorphins being released so it wasn't actually until two thousand eight that measuring endorphins in humans was actually possible because we ain't got some new imaging technology becoming available so researchers used positron emission tomography or pet scans to view at brain in both before and after exercise. And after doing this they found the increase in the release of endorphins after exercise. And that's why it's medical medical professionals prescribe regular exercise as a treatment for mild to moderate depression and anxiety because exercise boosts your mood a Walston endorphins. Get all the attention. You'll body also pumps out and the kind of annoyed switch. All a naturally synthesized version of THC. which is the chemical responsible for the feeling that marijuana produces and the most examine that new? Talamante produced in the body is known as Anandamide and this is believed to it. Creates a feeling of calmness. Jim Research is actually found. That's the end of cannabinoid system could be involved in the runner's high because they observed that's endorphins com pass rooted the blood brain barrier whilst the lipid soluble end cannabinoid found at high levels in people's blood off the running so they can travel from the blood into the brain where it can trigger a high. And what's interesting is that Celia Hillard who has HD director of the Neuroscience Research Center. The Medical College of Wisconsin has found that people need eight hours of sleep for optimal ended kind of annoyed production. So this gesture. Although there's no scientific proof a morning homerun is more likely to produce a runner's high than an evening or after noon runs I didn't want endorphins to get all the glory about why we feel so great author director cise. This is of course after we recovered breath back from whatever exercise. It may be a new kind of annoyed. Also have a part in this as well. They're still trying to evaluate wait now which has more of an impact. But hopefully that's given you some science behind wiig sizing can make you feel great. Not only my feeling of pride you've got you've gone out and Don some workouts despite your busy schedule but also because of the neurochemical was ended kind of annoys that are being released as
Tone-Deaf Peloton Ad Stirs Controversy
"Uh from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Wednesday December eleven. It's the ad everyone is talking about but not in a good way Peleton's thirty-second holiday spot has gone viral. You know the one in which a man gives his wife a stationary bike. Critics are calling it sexist. I classes and tone-deaf here's what it sounds like now time first time I that's right excited. Let's do this five days in a row. He's price I am six. Am Peleton began running adding the ad for its twenty three hundred dollar bike in November but it was only last week when social media observers took notice and reacted with a vengeance. The many troubles according to critic stem partly from the look on the woman's face. She appears almost terrified throughout the spot. Is it just well her acting or does she actually fear that if she doesn't spinner brains Out every morning at six o'clock she won't have the beautiful body. Your husband demands. No one seems to know for sure but the fact that we never see the male character doing anything but sitting on the couch. Sure doesn't help one tweeter scoffed. Nothing says maybe you should lose a few pounds like gifting. You're already rail thin life partner of Peleton. It's complicated though. The woman is model gorgeous to to begin with and she looks exactly the same. When at the end of the ad it's supposed to be a year later and she tells her husband she had no idea how much this would change her? Well how exactly we. We don't know the question is leading critics to say maybe she dropped her weight from one. Oh five to one zero three. So go the snarky comments about body shaming and prompting defenders to suggest asks that she probably wanted the bike for the other benefits of intense exercise from releasing endorphins to getting stronger. The bike maker didn't help itself self much with its non apology apology. In a statement of Peleton representative wrote while we're disappointed in how some have misinterpreted this commercial. We are encouraged by grateful for the outpouring of support. We've received from those who understand what we were trying to communicate in a column for INC magazine. Jason often said that's about as passive aggressive. Aggressive is a non apology can be adding. It's the absolute worst possible way. You can ever respond to a customer or critic so he didn't like it very much as the backlash ashed mounted peleton share price cratered last week. It dropped about fifteen percent reducing the company's value by one point six billion dollars according to CBS. News but hold John there. You would be a simple matter. If the thirty second spot were completely responsible for Peleton's stock slide but look businesses almost always more complicated. That's true this time around to. There's just a whole lot more going on here. Number One Peleton stock has risen seventy percent since its public offering including about twenty percent. We're black Friday so already. Those stock prices were sky high. There were due to come back down to Earth. CBS News analysts pointed out. Furthermore the so-called lock-up Period Korea Time following an IPO in which insiders aren't allowed to sell their shares is due to end as early as next month meaning. There could be a sell off on the horizon. Finally Peleton rivaled sold cycle so far only a studio based business plans to begin selling a stationary bike in direct competition to Peleton early next year. Now at production time Peleton John was still running the offending. Why but it could be because as the old saying goes all publicity is good publicity the trade pub? Pr Daily quoted marketing. I thought leader Peter Shankman who wrote on twitter if you really think the creepy Peleton commercial is going to hurt their brand. You

How to Follow Through on Simple Daily Habits
"You know what I'm talking about that thing that you're like yeah you know just every other day I need to call my mom or I've got her ember once a week to are the plants Dang it I have got to get back into the habit of exercising three times a week doc whatever it is right now I'm not talking about the thing that you're not doing it at all or you don't have the motivation to I'm talking about the thing that it should very easily be a habit you just keep forgetting it so maybe exercises in a good one either you keep forgetting it or you keep allowing something else to get in the way just for whatever reason you haven't been able to make it happen and it's not that hard but if it is that important we need to put some serious accountability around it so I wanNA share with you a couple of things that I've done that hopefully you can take from the US and make them your own on number one I don't have a great memory I wish I was as thoughtful dive into memory just if I'm being honest I'm not as thoughtful as my husband is every day if we're not together which we usually are if we're apart for more than a couple of hours he texts me and he'll say how are you doing today how are you feeling and he always remembers like something that happened the day before or if I maybe earlier in the week I said my foot hurts my backwards or whatever every day when he checks in with me if we're not together he remembers something specific that tells me he cares and he's thinking about me and he's listening and I am picky about him and I care and I'm listening to bring a freaking forget to do that so what I started doing being this is a couple of years ago is I created a little reminder that comes to my phone and I use an APP called if this then that if this then that and I set it up so that it sends me text message reminders and I use this like crazy so one of the things I use it for is to remind myself alf because you know if you have. Add or you just get lost in your thoughts and I'm making excuses now if you're not as thoughtful as your spouse you sometimes forget these things and you just need a little reminder so I get that little text message it'll say check in with Brett and then I remember to send him a text funny thing is earlier today I had just gotten the message I'm like Oh there it is and so I was like just composing text in and boom it beat me to already sent me a Texan is like hey what are you doing do you want me to bring you coffee I'm like Dang any beat me to it my point is you can set up reminders to help you to do the things you know you just need a little help to make certain that they happen on a regular basis another might be like maybe it's calling your mom I have a reminder that have inside of my ear it's a post it note a list of about thirteen maybe fifteen people that these are important people that don't see regularly but there are people who they're really important to me and I just want to remember to stay in touch with them so they are on a little post it note on the inside of a mere whenever I opened up my mirror I see name and I go down that list and Oh okay yesterday I texted Mindy and today I'm going to text Sean and I just go down the list and so I don't have to thirteen or fifteen of them or however many is on that list on one day but it's a reminder to get through that list because some these people I don't see on a regular basis so it's a little bit out of sight out of mind and I try to stay off a social media like I tried not to use social media to keep up with my friend I I try to really use my phone and call them in the what I liked Paul personal podcast I know there's an APP for this stuff but you know so like my friend Kim Guard I love her I see her maybe twice a year but I think about it all the time which is in my heart so rather than leading a year ago by just have this little reminder in my medicine cabinet to Texas people let me think of some other examples all right here's one I love of exercising with friends so I do that in a regular basis and I always have but depending on the season there can come at time where it's like Oh that person's really busy and then I don't see them for a while and then now suddenly I'm not exercising with a friend and I don't need to exercise with a friend to keep myself accountable but my thing is I would rather do something healthy when I get with a friend as opposed to like saying hey let's get together and it's always cocktails and food why not have it be something that's really healthy I find I tend to have deeper more personal conversations when I'm exercising with a friend anyways so I have three girlfriends who I rotate my schedule and I exercise with them and it's cool because it keeps me accountable to my fitness gene but more importantly it guarantees I'm going to spend some quality time with someone that I love and we're supporting each other and something that's good for us another example that might be maybe the thing that you need to do is you're like I'm exercising all the time but I keep telling myself I need to change it up but I'm not it so what do you need to do to make that happen do you need higher personal trainer do you need to just set a fitness date and start exercising with a partner the next examples one if you don't mind I'd like to kind of pat myself on the back I kind of need to and I want to do this and set a good example for you as I try to encourage you to do you've got to take a moment every so often typically every six months and celebrate your win this is really important if you're the kind of person who's interested in personal growth because when you're trying to be a better human being you're always trying to be better Oh you forget how vital it is to have motivation in that pursuit and if you're not ever looking back over your shoulder and to see where it is you've come from and what you've accomplished you're missing out on a healthy dose of endorphins that dopamine hit that we all need stay motivated into feel good like you need to feel good so if you can't do this for yourself I want you to ask someone else hey can you think of things that maybe I'm doing better now than I was like two years ago or five years ago or fifteen years ago a girlfriend of mine recently was going to you pretty emotional time liquor force was finally final and she's been like just a trooper through the whole thing just buckling down and doing whatever she needed to do and doing right you know and she was just like I'm just going to tell the truth and I'm going to bend over backwards I'm going to be the bigger person and all of this and it was really really hard and and she stayed really strong throughout the whole thing but then when it was suddenly final divorce was final she became surprisingly emotional she was like what is going on why emotional I've had two years to kind of processes wise it all sudden hitting me and I think sometimes we get there's something really difficult and hard it's only then that we realized we can relax for a moment and the emotions come to us just come rushing through and bret was making the analogy that a lot of times you'll see like when guys win a national championship or something really monumental from an athletic standpoint is really tough burly guys and here they are bawling their heads off at the end why will because tears are response it's a physical response to an emotional connection doesn't necessarily mean you're sad it might mean your euphoric and might mean you you're proud of yourself it it means you're happy we've all had tears of joy but she was having these tears and I said you're grow you've been holding your breath really and just doing what you needed you putting your head down and buckling down trotting through this with such determination that you probably finally just are happy the moment to be proud of yourself and and be emotional about it and that's don't try to stop that you guys like to go ahead and let that happen how did they get on the subject anyways she was kind of reminiscent in kind of you know bombed I guess and I thought I bet she doesn't realize like all the amazing changes that have happened in her life in the last two years and all the progress issues made and so I created a little voice recording kind of like this just in case she I had forgotten how far she come and I think it's important we all do that so I think about the fact that when I first started podcasting in two thousand fourteen I said I refuse to give you guys a regular schedule and I'm not going to tell you I'm GonNa podcast one time a week or two times a week or five times a week I'm just going to be asked when I can fit it in and at the time that felt like the right thing to do but honestly I wanted to podcast more I just I didn't want to disappoint anybody and I wasn't disciplined enough I didn't have schedule I I didn't want to create one that forced me into podcasting and the more I realized this was serving bowl and this was like a way to give back like it doesn't cost you anything to listen to a podcast and that there were hundreds of thousands of people that I could help like who couldn't afford what a life coach or didn't have somebody to pour into them or to share experiences they didn't have a wise friend or or maybe they just needed someone to keep him company

Monkey Bonding Through Grooming
"If you scratch my back I'll scratch yours. It's a familiar thing people use when they expect another person. I pay them back for a favor. Humans don't usually scratch each other's back at the office but we do find a similar behavior in our closest cousins monkeys an eight pts they engage in allo grooming a social interaction in which one individual will sit close to another and comb through its hair remove dead skin or parasites. Nights or just touch the individual scientists originally thought allo grooming might be a simple form of reciprocity but after years studying many any primate species they discovered it is very complex grooming not only removes external parasites it leads to tolerance social support mating advantage and bonding between individuals within a social group grooming reduces tension by lowering the heart rate and releasing endorphins that are calming. Calming it is used to reinforce male female mate bonds as well as same sex friendship bonds for example the length of time macaque and capuchin females groom each other depends on their social rank higher ranked females receive more grooming chimpanzees often have bouts of allo. Oh grooming that go on for hours when reunited with old acquaintances they also do it to calm emotions following aggressive outbursts by angry adult males. Even though humans do not overtly practice allo grooming we do appreciate going to the barber shop beauty parlor or nail salon. petting the family dog has been been shown in experiments to reduce the blood pressure of humans and who wouldn't like a good massage after a long day at the office.

And these happy hormones they're called endorphins, which are natural, brain chemicals that are very similar to opiates become deficient when we don't move our bodies when we don't exercise or not sedentary under conditions of endorphin deficiencies or natural opiates, efficiencies will do anything to get those things back up again.

"So they I think especially on college campuses. This is a very big issue, and binge drinking is increasing more in women than in men. So not only do I think they feel the social pressure to drink. But I also think there's mounting evidence that young women and older women are drinking more to cope with stress and anxiety. Then men so the reasons for drinking and the consequences of drinking seemed to be depending on the sexes. And I think for women even though there's less used to sorters overall. And that's kind of been a long standing pattern that gap is narrowing and women don't need to drink as much to have as bad of effect. So it it sort of progresses. More quickly to problems. We knew started drinking when you were third. Eighteen what need do you feel like alcohol was serving in your life? It's funny. How I didn't recognize the need until I had a drink. So for me, I I had had little sips here. And there at family parties and things, but the first time I got as much as I wanted was when I was thirteen and I drank probably a little more than a half a gallon, a wine splitting this with a friend and her parents basement, and I suddenly felt less anxious lesson secure less inept to cope with the world. I felt like there was this. Suddenly, I was full and okay in a way that I had never been. And do you think that has to do with the way you're wired? I guess it must. I mean, it was so complete and so profound. I really remember thinking like, oh, I can get through my life. Now. I didn't even know I and I I was probably not the most happy go lucky kid, but I I was sort of getting through. Okay. But once I found that ticket and it felt like a ticket to me. I suddenly realized well this is how people survive the pains of living. So I think that's what the neuro chemistry underlies. That is is something that I've been pursuing for thirty years since then. But I I think there are probably lots of explanations. I think that one of them might involve endorphins. So I and I studied this as a topic of research, and it's not, you know, it's one of thousands of ways to get at this problem. But it looks like people who are prone to alcoholism because they have alcoholics in their family or their somehow genetically at risk. Risk have lower levels of endorphin, and we know endorphin as a kind of a natural morphine light compound and so- morphine or endorphins make us feel at peace, and restful and not suffering and sort of at ease. And so I think I may have a deficiency of endorphin. And because alcohol is a terrific stimulator of endorphins, synthesis and release it's likely that when I drank all that wine. I suddenly was flooded with endorphins, and that's partly why I felt so great people take drugs because they think it makes the drugs make them feel good. But as you point out if you're taking an addictive drug after a while the drugs just kind of make you feel normal. I don't get you high anymore. But if you stop using the drug, you feel sick, you feel real you're in pain feel really terrible. So there's a neurological explanation for that. And you say that has. To do with the fact that the brain is always trying to bring you into a state of homeo- stasis into a state of stability. So the brain compensates for things that are unusual that are going on. So how does how does that figure into addiction? Yeah. The the brain compensates for regular unusual things you could say so the more you take a drug to change the way, you feel the more your brain produces the exact opposite state. And it does that. So that you're at this stable homeo- static baseline, and you can tell if something important is happening. So I drink coffee every morning, I wouldn't think of not drinking it, and when I wake up, I don't really wake up. I'm I am drag myself out of bed straight to the coffee pot before I talked to my family or my pets. I'm making the coffee because I don't feel awake..

Who let's a lot of time. Go by just drinking coffee without food and experiences a significant blood sugar crash, which is often quickly followed by the ingestion of sugars foods, which gives us a big boost. But then end up with a crash within a few minutes or or an hour. And at that point we want another big boost of sugar. Right. You have you have to continue on that train the comfort crave. Those are. That's all about endorphins. Right. It's all about our natural painkillers. So when our endorphins, you're low, you know, we we want those comfort foods, and how do we know for a comfort crave. Well, we we have a foods that we regarded are best friends. But we also tend to be oversensitive emotionally what we may be the ones who cried commercials. So having enough endorphin is is critical to our emotional wellbeing as well as our dietary health, maybe I could chalk it up. Julia to the fact that I live and breathe the food world, but I'm sounding a little bit. Like all of these just so, you know. Well, it's not unusual now in time in in in our dietary history to have all five creating types, you know, to have depletion in all five of the areas of the brain that are supposed to be generating normal appetite. If you're a stretch crave you crave for the relief of that pressure. Right. That's right. You know? So we're we're grazing while we're working on the computer late at night. Trying to reach the deadline. No doubt. And then lastly type five is a fatigued crave. That's the basically the caffeine and dark chocolate crave. Sometimes your sugar can do it. You know, jelly beans. Give some people that that lift of energy and focus temporarily, of course. So then the the most important question is how do you turn off the fatal attraction? Well, it turns out it's very easy, intimidating brain chemicals. I know with names like endorphin serotonin Dama. I mean, you teric acid, and so forth are actually very simple chemicals that are made out of a single protein or amino acid in complete proteins there twenty amino acids, and we make all of our body structures out of protein, some combination of these twenty well, we only need five amino acids to correct every single one of these. So each one of these parts of the brain that is malfunctioning and generating craving will quiet and start directing us toward healthy food. If it said just its own special amino acid. And I think you it really is an incredible read, and I commend you on your research and your clinics and all the good that you're sharing. Thank you so much really appreciate it.

"You're looking in the literature of course my my my husband dan was doing the same thing and and he had definitely noticed the same thing and so what was really interesting i looked in literature and and found that using the heat stress in general increases you dump a bunch of beta endorphin so well that's obvious that happens with exercise mean part of the like you mentioned you know you're when you're running exercising vigorously your core body temperatures elevated and that's sort of part of that endorphin response but what was really interesting to me was like at the same time a friend of mine who was doing some research on the opioid pathway and he was looking at the capital pureed pathway so mu receptors endorphins and kappa opioid or sort of the opposite of endorphins is sort of the yeah just worked feeling you feel great and he was telling me about some research with if you agonize the receptor the cap ovarian receptor what ends up happening is a feedback where you have the mu opioid receptors much more sensitive to endorphins and and you basically are having more of these chapters and know more sensitive so then i started to look in the literature and found that something that we make in our brain in dodge nestle called dina orphan is up regulated when you're exposed to heat because it cools your body down and so i started to go i wonder you know so for example there are studies where you expose rats to heat stress and they increase their dino orphan and as well what if the dining the dining orphan binding to the calculator receptor does actually sensitize mu opioid receptors to bit endorphin so i thought oh maybe that's a possible mechanism why i'm feeling so good last like a lasting effect where like later on you know weeks later i'd still feel really really good so that's sort of an inch.
