Improving my sleep  was the most impactful health improvement I’ve made in 2016!  Around April, my body basically hit a wall.  I was low on energy, I couldn’t think straight,  and when I worked out I felt like my heart was going to explode.  I went to the doctor a handful of times for this test and that test.  Nothing.  They sent me home telling me that I was perfectly healthy.  This was of course terrifying because I figured that if it ...

When we begin to notice that one of our loved ones is suffering from depression, we usually have a feeling of helplessness. We hope that there’s something we could say to make all their pain go away. Although our intentions are good, this approach tends to complicate things even further. The truth is that the best help is not saying anything at all, but to be an active listener. As stated in the description of depression, the key to our emotional well-being is to keep our emotional ...

When you imagine yourself, do you see your mind and your body as separate parts of yourself? If so, your body may not agree with you. The belief that our mind lives in a secluded area of our body has caused health and emotional hazards since it became the dominating dogma of the 20th century. Our medical experts become absolute masters of a particular organ and become blind in their specialization. Why would an oncologist worry about their patients repressed emotions during their ...

The researchers concluded that mindfulness-based therapy may be useful in altering affective and cognitive processes that underlie multiple clinical issues. Those findings are consistent with evidence that ...

Mindfulness is a hot topic! From Harvard to Yoga to Buddhism to modern day educational institutions. In fact, mindfulness just hit my personal life when I was invited to a dinner table of 8 mindful leaders for a mindful dinner with a mindfulness expert, Aaron Kahlow. What does that even mean? We consciously relate to each other? We consciously discuss the topic of mindfulness? We practice our mindfulness during the dinner? We share our mindful revelations? We delve into ...

Do you want to let life overcome you? or Do you want to embrace the implementation of happiness science to see empirically based benefits unfold in front of you? How much longer can you think happiness is unimportant when science is here to show you it is ...

This is one of the hardest spiritual concepts for us all to grasp.   It is a demon a lot of us would rather ignore and keep in our shadow.  It is much easier to hold on to resentment than it is to forgive someone. We hear about the people who are able to forgive their assailants, murderers, rapists and more. Women turned Buddhist monks visit jails and tell their stories of how being brutally gang raped for years in underground cells led them to a path of forgiveness. ...
