Health: A step-by-step guide to defeat rheumatoid arthritis naturally

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s own immune system attacks itself. RA is characterized by chronic inflammation that destroys joints, tissues and organs over a period of time.
You can beat rheumatoid arthritis by de-inflaming the body through natural lifestyle principles.

Auto-immune conditions, like RA, are associated with hyper-responsive immunity. This means that whenever the body feels even slightly threatened it creates a wild and reckless inflammatory reaction. Often times this inflammatory reaction is systemic in that it affects the entire body.
Other times it affects only specific regions such as the hands and fingers.
Overcoming auto-immune conditions like RA are primarily dependent upon rebuilding the intestinal wall, de-inflaming the body, and optimizing vitamin D3 levels.

The connection between leaky gut syndrome and auto-immunity
Individuals with auto-immune conditions very commonly have leaky gut syndrome and an overpopulation of parasitic organisms in the gut. These organisms have damaged the intestinal wall and food particles are now able to pass into the bloodstream before they are digested. The immune system recognizes these particles as foreign invaders and unleashes an assault of inflammation in the body.

The most common food allergens that must be avoided for these
individuals to get well include gluten containing grains and pasteurized dairy. Soy products, different nuts, eggs and heavy proteins are often not tolerated well while the gut is damaged. Other common inflammatory triggers include those of the nightshade family such as eggplant, tomatoes and potatoes.

How to rebuild the intestinal wall
The best way to rebuild the intestinal wall is to incorporate a daily lifestyle of intermittent fasting. This should be a 16-20 hour liquid diet each day in which only cleansing beverages such as fermented drinks and lemon water are consumed. No more than one solid food meal a day should be consumed for at least a 3 month period of time to ensure proper healing.
One could also incorporate a six week liquid diet to speed this process up.
Vegetable juices can and should be consumed throughout the fasting period. Some of the best vegetable juices include wheatgrass and cabbage juice among others. Wheatgrass is known for its incredible chlorophyll content and ability to purify the bloodstream. Cabbage is loaded with the amino acid L-glutamine – which is the primary amino acid in the gut wall.
Digestive enzymes and fermented foods should be used before or during the solid food meal to enhance digestion. Heavy duty probiotic supplementation should be used after the solid food meal to reduce inflammation that would be caused by the solid food of the meal.

Why live an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle?
An anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle are essential for full recovery from RA. Anti-inflammatory foods help to reduce stress on the immune system and allow it to have better coordination. The diet should focus on healthy fats, anti-oxidants and clean protein sources.
Great anti-inflammatory foods include healthy fats such as coconut
products, avocados and extra-virgin olive oil. Healthy protein sources such as organic poultry, wild-caught fish, grass-fed beef and grass-fed raw, fermented dairy products.
These proteins and fats are rich in medium chain saturated fats and
omega-3 fatty acids which are necessary for healthy cell membranes and good hormone and immune function. These healthy meat should be consumed in small amounts only once per day to minimize digestion stress while the body is able to extract the key fatty acids and amino acids that the meat provides.

Eat lots of antioxidants and fermented foods
Antioxidant rich foods like organic berries, green leafy veggies, onions, garlic and bell peppers should be used throughout the day. Nutrient rich herbs such as turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, rosemary, oregano, thyme, basil and many others should be used as much as possible.
Fermented foods and beverages benefit the RA sufferer immensely and must be the cornerstone of the anti-inflammatory plan. This includes homemade sauerkraut, kombucha, coconut water kefir. Red cabbage sauerkraut is preferable due to its abundance of anthocyanin anti-oxidants compared to green cabbage. Fermented raw dairy from 100% grass-fed cows and goats provides some of the best superfoods with kefir, amasai and various cheeses.

Don’t forget about the importance of vitamin D
Vitamin D plays a critical role in a balanced immune response. Vitamin D3, among many other functions, helps the body recognize between foreign and self-proteins. This process reduces auto-immune reactions and quiets chronic inflammation. Optimal vitamin D3 levels also allows for normalized stimulation of natural killer cells and macrophages that destroy antagnostic microbes and other pathogens in the body.
Over 90 percent of our modern society is deficient in Vitamin D. An ideal range for vitamin D3 (25-hydroxy cholcalciferol) is between 60-100 ng/ml – which is significantly higher than the medically acceptable 32 ng/ml. Be sure to know your levels and get them up around 80-90 ng/ml for optimal immune responses. Either get regular sun exposure on about 50 percent of your body, at peak periods between 10am-2pm, or supplement with 10,000
IU of high quality emulsified vitamin D3 to get to and stay at the desired levels.

It is advisable to monitor these levels with your healthcare provider.
The dangers of subluxation and neurological distortion
Chronic inflammatory disease processes are influenced by the nervous system which controls the coordination of the immune system. Nerve stimulation is essential for the growth, function and control of inflammatory cells. Researchers have found that abnormal neurological control results in the development of auto-immune based inflammatory conditions such as RA.
Subluxation is the term for misalignments of the spine that cause
compression and irritation of nerve pathways affecting organ systems of the body. Subluxations are an example of physical nerve stress that affects neuronal control. According to researchers, such stressful conditions lead to altered measures of immune function and increased susceptibility to a variety of diseases.
The upper cervical spine is the most important region for immune
coordination. Various wellness chiropractors specialize in stabilizing the upper cervical spine which allows the nervous system to control and coordinate the body with greater efficiency.

Many individuals with auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis have ligament laxity at the upper cervical spine. It is essential to see a well-trained wellness based chiropractor that specializes in upper cervical care and corrective care and has much experience working with individuals with advanced conditions such as RA. These chiropractors will use a regiment of specific adjustments and corrective exercises to minimize subluxation,
restore proper neurological tone and maximize the bodies

Finance: 10 Ways to Embrace the Frugal Life

To truly enjoy everything they want out of life, many people have been turning to frugal living. By embracing the frugal life, they have been able to get rid of debt, save more for retirement, live a richer life, and most importantly finally exercise control over their finances and lifestyle.
You don’t have to pick up and move half way ‘round the world as my wife and I did to embrace the frugal life. There are plenty of ways for you to add a dose of frugal living right in your home town. If you are ready to add some frugal living to your lifestyle here are 10 ways that you can get started.

Rediscover Your Local Library – No doubt you remember the library from your childhood. Well, the library has become even better these days. In addition to books and magazines, many libraries now carry movies as well. 
With the cost of all these entertainments rising so fast, there’s nothing like getting your entertainment for free. And did you know that you can even borrow books for your Kindle from the websites of libraries that participate in the Amazon Overdrive program? There’s really little reason to buy books ever again. As far as movies are concerned, if you simply have to have a certain title tonight, give Redbox a try. Their super low $1 per night rentals certainly beat the high cost of purchasing DVDs and bluerays.

Make Use of Coupons – The average consumer saves 12% per year on groceries by using coupons. You don’t have to be average though. Taking as little as an hour per week can save you 25% off your grocery bills easily. 
You can save even more by finding a grocery store that doubles coupons and by searching for sales and discounts before buying pretty much any product or service. And don’t forget online sources for coupons.

Cook More, Eat Out Less – While I agree that eating out is fun, it is also way more expensive than making it yourself at home. If you eat out every week, challenge yourself to cut back on the restaurant excursions. By simply dropping a few trips per month to the restaurant you can save literally hundreds of dollars, especially if you have a family. One other good idea for families is to look for restaurants that offer free meals or discounts to children. Or you can join me in Bangkok where our average cost of eating out is about $10 for the three of us.

Pay Your Bills Online – This may not make a huge difference, but you can save yourself the cost of several stamps each month and avoid the possibility of late fees by setting up all your eligible accounts for online bill pay. Just be careful to monitor your account balance if you set up automatic bill payments.

Minimize Your Auto Expenses – Whenever possible, save money on gas by walking. Not only will your checking account feel better, you will as well and so will the planet. If you have to take the car, try to plan your errands in a logical fashion so you aren’t driving to similar places several times a week.

Use Homemade Cleaning Products – You might be surprised at how
many things you can clean using simple cleaning agents like bleach,
vinegar, and baking soda. Commercial detergents are often harsh, bad for the environment, and downright expensive. Why pay for dyes, perfumes, and marketing costs when you can get the same results for a fraction of the cost?

Look for Freebies – At the extreme, you can head to Costco or Ikea for a free lunch or dinner, but there are loads of other freebies out there if you know where to look. This can be a particularly good way to save money if you don’t mind trying new products.

Use Cold Water – According to Trent Hamm of The Simple Dollar,
“running mostly cold washes with all cold rinses saves us $214 per year.” 
That’s a pretty compelling argument for washing in cold water. He also mentions that unless your laundry is stained or heavily soiled, there is really no need for hot water. And, hot water damages clothes more, causing shrinking, fading and wrinkling. So, you are likely to keep your clothes in good shape longer by using cold water, which means you will save money on your clothing budget as well.

Turn Off the Electricity – I don’t mean for you to go back to using oil
lamps and candles, that is too extreme. You can however make a habit of turning off lights and electronics when they aren’t in use. This simple frugal habit can add up to several hundred dollars in yearly savings.

Cherry Blossoms

Do It Yourself – There are many maintenance type tasks that you can easily learn to do for yourself rather than paying others. One example that quickly comes to mind is oil changes. I know the quick lube places seem inexpensive, but they are not nearly as inexpensive as changing your own oil and filter. And if you have two or more cars you multiply your savings.
So there you have it, 10 quick easy ways to begin a new frugal life. None of these ideas will make you rich, but taken together they can save you thousands of dollars a year.

Health: 10 tips to improve your memory naturally

Do you regularly walk into a room and forget why you came? Do you have trouble focusing and paying attention or often find yourself unable to remember what you were trying not to forget?
Hectic, stressful lifestyles coupled with less than ideal diets and lack of exercise have made it difficult for our brains to cope and remain sharp.
Though memory and cognitive difficulties can be frustrating and sometimes frightening, the good news is there’s hope!
You are not doomed to slide down the slippery slope to dementia as you age. There are things you can do right now to enhance and preserve your brain function and memory for many years to come.
Here are the 10 best tips on how to boost your memory and brain function naturally:

1. Amp Up Your Antioxidants – Proanthocyanidin, vitamin C and alpha lipoic acid are antioxidants that can cross the blood-brain barrier to help protect brain tissue from oxidative damage, a.k.a., “brain rust”. Great sources of brain-saving antioxidants are citrus fruits, acerola cherry, bilberry, Granny Smith apples, grapes, and cocoa beans.

2. Get Your Good Fats – Since your body cannot create new tissues out of thin air, you really are what you eat. And, since your brain tissue is comprised mostly of fat, eating a diet of mostly bad fats (hydrogenated oils, polyunsaturated veggie oils like canola, soy and corn, grain-fed meats), means your brain tissue will be negatively affected by these fats and will never function optimally.
For good memory and optimal brain function, make sure your diet is
comprised of primarily good fats from sources such as mercury-free cold water fish, grass-fed/free range meats, free range eggs, olive oil, avocados, nuts (NOT peanuts) and coconut oil.

3. Balance Your Omegas – Omega-3 is particularly important for brain health and good moods. Unfortunately, the typical American diet is disastrously overloaded with omega-6, throwing off the delicate balance between the two and inviting problems with memory and cognition. The best omega-3 boosters are chia seed and Neptune Antarctic krill oil. You can also get omega-3 from many of the good fat sources listed in tip #2.

4. Hydrate – Water is a conductor of electricity and brain cells
communicate partly through electrical impulse. Thus, chronic dehydration can cause foggy thinking. Drink enough pure water each day to keep your urine almost clear and you will be on your way to a well hydrated, super charged brain.

5. Detoxify – Some of the most dangerous toxins we’re exposed to are fat soluble. This means they tend to lodge in fatty tissue in the body and are not as easily eliminated as water soluble toxins. Since your brain is comprised of mostly fatty tissue, toxins that have an affinity for fatty tissue, like those from aluminum, mercury, plastics, and teflon, can have a negative effect on your memory and brain function.
To reduce your exposure to these toxins, use food containers and kitchen tools made of glass, bamboo, and ceramic and avoid foods treated with chemical pesticides.
Also note that formaldehyde, a chemical found in solvents, mattresses, tobacco smoke, foam insulation, particle board and car exhaust, can also interfere with your brain function. Reduce your exposure to formaldehyde whenever possible.

6. Train Your Brain – Though many people think of meditation as a
relaxation technique, you should know that it works wonders for brain function.
Regular meditation helps the left and right hemispheres of the brain
communicate more effectively, resulting in clearer thinking and better ability to focus. It also helps your body respond to stress in a healthier way, which prevents problems with memory.

7. Avoid Fluoride – Daily ingestion of food prepared with fluoridated water or drinking unfiltered tap water can put you at risk of brain and memory related problems. A number of studies have linked moderate exposure to fluoride to memory problems, reduced intelligence, impaired fetal brain development and other forms of brain damage. To reduce your exposure to fluoride, be sure to drink and cook with only spring water or tap water that has been treated with reverse osmosis filtration. Keep in mind that nearly all restaurants and coffee shops use tap water to make everything they serve.

8. Use It or Lose It – Once we graduate from school and get settled in our jobs, we tend to stop learning new skills and information. This not only means that we tend to get stuck in a rut, but that we also lose the very ability to memorize things or learn new skills.
Like any skill, memorization needs to be practiced in order to be retained or improved. Constantly challenging your brain to learn new skills or memorize new information keeps it continually creating new neural networks, or webs of brain cells that work together, allowing smoother more efficient function. Only brain cells that fire together wire together and when they stop firing together, they lose their connections.
To ensure your brain cells keep actively creating and maintaining
connections with each other, challenge your brain by regularly doing
specially designed exercises like those from Lumosity, learning new skills, playing music (especially an instrument that involves finger dexterity, like piano, woodwinds, or guitar), learning the lyrics to a new song or memorizing phone numbers.

9. Balance Your Hormones – Keeping your hormones, particularly
cortisol, balanced and under control is vitally important to sharp memory and overall health. Chronically elevated cortisol levels from unmitigated stress, poor diet or overconsumption of caffeine and other stimulants can cause significant memory problems as well as weight gain and a host of other problems.
Additionally, elevated cortisol from a bout of depression or stress can cause you to have selective negative memory; in other words, you tend to only remember negative things that happen and forget the positive. This distorted perspective can obviously interfere with your happiness and create a vicious cycle of mental and emotional stress that only exacerbates your hormone imbalance.
The best ways to maintain healthy cortisol levels are to keep your blood sugar balanced by avoiding high-sugar foods and drinks, eating regular nutrient-dense meals, and getting moderate exercise 5 days a week.

10. Pay Attention – A vital component of sharp memory is being present in the now. No matter how sharp your mind, you will have no chance to commit anything to memory if you were not paying attention to it in the first place.
Take a few moments throughout your day to practice bringing your
awareness to the present moment; your body sensations, sensory
information from your environment and the emotions you are currently feeling. Once you are fully present where you are, you have a much better chance of retaining information that you will need to remember.
By following these 10 tips on how to improve your memory naturally, you can not only experience better brain function, but happier moods, better metabolism and increased overall health. Make out your grocery list of foods and supplements to use and an action list of physical and mental exercises that you want to try. And do it right now, before you forget!

Auctions: 10 Things You Need to Know about Storage Auctions

Auctions: 10 Things You Need to Know about Storage Auctions

1. What to Bring
The necessities are a valid id, money, a flashlight, and padlocks. The sky’s the limit from there. A hat & sunscreen are a must for me. And water & snacks. If you plan to bid you’ll want tools to a) inventory your unit (like gloves & a box cutter), b) empty your unit (a vehicle, someone to help, ropes etc) and c) to clean your unit (garbage bags & a broom). You’ll need to empty the contents to get your cleaning deposit back, but a quick sweep will go a long way with the facility manager.

2. Learn About Sales Tax and Resale Licenses
Facilities are required to collect sales tax on units sold at auction but lucky for you, many facilities don’t know this. Be sure to find out whether it’s collected so you can adjust your bid. Don’t get caught off guard. Your $100 bid could quickly become $120 with sales tax and a premium. You still have options though. With a resale license (issued by your state) you don’t pay sales tax when you win units, only when you resell the stuff inside.

3. Find Out If There Are Entrance Fees or Buyer’s Premiums
Usually you can walk away with all your money in your pocket if you don’t win a unit. Some facilities, however, are now charging an entrance fee simply to enter the auction – normally $5-$10. Other facilities have begun collecting buyer’s premiums. This only applies if you win a unit, which is then collected at the end of the auction. But it’s important to calculate it into your bid amount. You don’t want to come up short when it comes time to pay the lady.

4. Call to Confirm
The local storage manager isn’t always available to answer the phone, so it’s best to try to call a day or two before the auction. Also ask how many units are going to auction. If it’s 1-3 there’s a better chance the auction might be cancelled. But also a better chance there’s a light crowd. So if the facility is close by, it might be worth stopping by to scope out the situation.
You can also ask the manager if they think any of those people are going to pay up. Often managers know if the tenant has moved & they don’t have any way of notifying the tenant their unit is even delinquent. Or they may be in communication with the tenant and know the tenant plans to pay up before the auction. But always, always, ALWAYS call to confirm.

5. Show Up Early to Register
Usually 15 minutes will suffice, but remember – it’s better to be early than miss the auction. Extra time will also give you a chance to ask the manager what information they have about the units and their former tenants, as well as asking the other bidders about their businesses too. It’s also a good idea to chat with the auctioneer so he knows who you are.

6. Check to Make Sure It’s a Live Auction
The vast majority of storage auctions are live auctions. A handful of
facilities, however, also do silent auctions. They usually have viewing hours throughout the week, take bids written on a piece of paper, and then answer the highest bidder at a specified day and time. Silent auctions can be a great way to get units really cheap, but as you can imagine, there is room for insider dealing because only the facility sees all the bids.

7. Don’t Forget About The Cleaning Deposit
If you purchase a unit, you will usually be required to pay a cleaning
deposit to ensure you empty the entire unit. It varies, but this will usually be around $25-$50. In certain instances it might be worth forgoing your deposit to save yourself the time of emptying the rest of the unit. But be careful, the facility will not look too kindly on this. Try to find another bidder at the auction that will maybe take the stuff off your hands.

8. Keep in Mind the Time to Vacate
You usually have 24 to 48 hours to empty the unit, but some facilities will ask you to vacate that same day. Don’t be afraid to ask for more time if you need it. And if you want to keep the items in the unit for a short period of time, negotiate a highly discounted short term rental. Just remember that this cuts into your profits.

9. Educate Yourself
Just like with anything, you can either wing it and rely on chance, or
prepare and do everything within your ability to succeed. Utilize the
resources available to you. Read our past emails, learn from our Auction professionals, ask your questions on forums. And of course get out to some auctions! If you think you’d be too tempted to buy, leave your money at home, and just go watch. Your hard earned money is on the line, so it’s okay to take it slow the first times around.

10. Have fun!
Regardless of why you are there, storage auctions are fun. So is
refurbishing things and selling them for a profit. But decide whether it’s a hobby or a business because that changes things. For example, are you factoring your time invested? You might decide you enjoy it & it’s better than going to the gym so you’re not concerned about the time. Or you might decide you’d rather be fishing & if you’re going to do this it’s got to be worth your time. Just think it through because this will affect what units you buy and how you resell.

Trading: 10 Sure Fire Ways to Trade Penny Stocks

Even with these clear dangers, some people insist on trading the pennies.
So, if you find yourself on the receiving end of a telephone call from a
penny-stock promoter, or you spot an advertisement that promises dollars from your pennies — and you still decide that maybe penny stocks aren’t wooden nickels, just remember these 10 rules:

1. Ignore penny-stock success stories
Timothy Sykes, a penny-stock expert who trades both long and short, says you must not believe the penny-stock stories that are touted in emails and on social media websites.
“You have to say no,” Sykes said. “You can’t invest in penny stocks as if they were lotto tickets, but unfortunately that’s what most people do, and they lose again and again. Think of penny stocks as inmates in a prison that you can’t trust.”
Instead, Sykes says, focus on the profitable penny stocks with solid
earnings growth and which are making 52-week highs.

2. Disregard tips and read the disclaimers
Penny stocks are sold more than bought — mostly via tips that come your way in emails and newsletters.
“The free penny-stock newsletters are not giving you tips out of the
goodness of their heart,” Sykes said. “If you read the disclaimers at the bottom of the newsletters, they are getting paid to pitch a stock because their investors want exposure for the company. There is nothing wrong with wanting exposure, but almost all penny newsletters make false promises about their crappy companies.”
Sykes says there is a difference between stocks making a 52-week high based on an earnings breakout and stocks making a 52-week high because three newsletters picked it. Reading the disclaimers at the bottom of the email or newsletter, which the SEC requires them to do, will usually reveal a conflict of interest.
“Most newsletters don’t tell you the truth,” Sykes said. “They are being compensated to pump up the stock, and they rarely tell you when to sell. Often it’s far too late.”

3. Sell quickly
One allure of penny stocks is you can make 20% or 30% in a few days. If you make that kind of return with a penny stock, sell quickly.
Unfortunately, many traders get greedy, aiming for a 1,000% return.
Considering that the penny stock you’re in might be getting pumped up, take any profits and move on.

4. Never listen to company management
In the murky penny-stock world, don’t believe what you hear from
“You can’t trust anyone,” Sykes said. “The companies are trying to get their stock up so they can raise money and stay in business. There is no reliable business model or accurate data, so most penny stocks are scams that are created to enrich insiders.”
Sykes says large rings of the same people run promotions using different press releases and companies, including the reappearance of a notorious stock manipulator who was first convicted for an email pump-and-dump scheme when he was in high school.

5. Don’t sell short
Although shorting pumped-up penny stocks may seem attractive, don’t do it.
Penny stocks are too volatile, and if you’re on the wrong side of the trade, you could easily lose 50% or more on a short squeeze. Another problem is that it’s difficult to find shares of penny stock to short, especially those that made huge moves based on hype and newsletter tips. Leave shorting penny stocks to the pros.

6. Focus only on penny stocks with high volume
Stick with stocks that trade at least 100,000 shares a day. If you trade stocks with low volume, it could be difficult to get out of your position.
“You must be aware of the number of shares traded and the dollar volume,” Sykes said. He also suggests that you trade penny stocks that are priced at more than 50 cents a share. “Stocks that are trading less than 100,000 shares a day and are under 50 cents a share are not liquid enough to be in play,” he added.

7. Use mental stops
Because the bid-ask spreads on many penny stocks can be high, as much as 10%, hard stop-losses can actually cause you to lose money. 
Although it takes more concentration, use mental stops. “I focus more on risk-reward than stops,” Sykes said. “If I want to make a dollar a share on a three-dollar stock, I will cut my losses at 20 cents so I have a 5:1 risk reward. I aim for 3:1 or 4:1, but not 1:1 or 2:1. If I think a dollar stock has only 50-cents upside (2:1), my mental stop loss will be at 10 cents because the risk-reward is better.”

8. Buy the best of the bunch
Sykes looks to buy penny stocks that have had an earnings breakout.
“I love buying penny stocks when they have good earnings, or when they are breaking out to 52-week highs on volume that is at least a quarter million shares a day,” he said. “They are easy to find if you look.”
The challenge is to find stocks that make 52-week highs that aren’t due to a pump-and-dump scheme. Examples of penny stocks that have fit Syke’s criteria in the past include Tangoe, Magal Security Systems, and Staar Surgical Co.

9. Don’t trade large positions
“You really need to be careful with position sizing,” Sykes said. “I learned the hard way not to trade big. My rule now is not to trade more than 10% of the stock’s daily volume.”
In addition, he said, limit your share size so you can get out of the stock faster.

10. Don’t fall in love with a stock
Every penny stock company wants you think it has an exciting story that will revolutionize the world. If you enter the penny stock arena, be cynical, do your own research, and diversify, even if a friends or family member is touting a stock.
Penny stocks have earned their bad reputation, so beware.

Health: 10 Strategies for Effective Email Marketing Campaigns

Most people do not send effective email messages. I know. I spend a lot of time analyzing email messages for our clients, and measuring and tracking their effectiveness.

Whether you send large email newsletters or just use email to
communicate with friends, colleagues and customers, following these twelve strategies will make your email more effective. So, here’s my list, compiled and crafted from years of experience and quantitative analysis of tens of millions of messages we’ve sent out for our clients:

1. One Main Message Per Email:
The most effective email messages have one main idea or concept. I spent a summer as an intern at the White House, helping to read and answer the mail. The writing staff taught that the strongest messages were ones that didn’t distract people with extraneous information. Before you start writing a message, write down what you’re trying to communicate. Or at least think about your message before you start writing.
The most effective messages are ones that are crisp, clear and concise.

2. Keep it Short:
If you’re like me, the phone rings off the hook, people walk over to your desk to ask you a question, and other people are instant messaging you.
And then your cell phone starts ringing. It’s enough to make anyone a bit crazy and give you Attention Deficit Disorder. Our collective attention spans are very short. People simply have too many distractions to wade through a really long email.
You might think they need all of the information. But when people are faced with dense blocks of text, many people’s eyes glaze over. And then they ignore the entire message. And thus, the most effective email messages are short. Two or three short sentences in length. Perhaps a couple of bullet points. And perhaps the short message is followed by supporting material, an attachment, or a link to more information on a website. Enough said. I’ll try to keep this section short.

3. Keep it Relevant:
I believe that attention is the most important asset of any business or organization. What do I mean by this? If your messages are relevant, your recipients will pay attention to what you are trying to say. If you send email that isn’t relevant – they will quickly stop paying attention to your messages.
It’s easy to get into a mentality where you want to send everything to everyone. And with email newsletters or mass broadcasts, it’s not that expensive to do. However, once someone feels your messages aren’t that important, they will simply stop reading them.

4. Reply Early & Reply Often:
With the huge volume of spam, it’s tough to know if your message got through. Right now, four out of every five emails sent over the Internet today is spam. With so much junk, it’s easy for your message to get lost, trapped in a junk mail filter, or simply piled up in someone’s ever-expanding inbox. So you start to worry when you haven’t heard back from someone that you emailed a couple of days ago. “Hmmmm” you say. Did that person get my message? Should I send it again? If I do, will that bug them? Am I being too pushy?
So when you’re on the other side of the email message, it’s really important to reply early and reply often. What you’re doing is letting them know you (a) received the message and (b) that you care.

5. From Line:
The single most important part of an email message is the From line. If the person you’re sending to doesn’t recognize your name, your message will be at best skipped over. At worst, it will be simply deleted without opening.
Most email programs show a friendly display name instead of the plain email address.
The From line of your email (friendly display name) should have your full name and organization in it. The culprit is that many people have only their first names listed in the friendly From display line. Most of the time the messages aren’t too racy, but with email programs that automatically fill in an email address when you start to type a first name, it’s easy to email the wrong person something that could be seriously career limiting.

6. Subject Line:
After the From line, the subject line is the second most important part of an effective email. If you forget to include a subject line, your message is much more likely to go into a junk mail folder, or just not be opened.
Email marketing professionals live and die by subject lines. A good subject line will sum up what the message is all about, but still entice someone to open the message, read it, and take action. Including the company name in the subject line can increase open rates by up to 32 percent to 60 percent over a subject line without branding. (Jupiter Research)

7. Personalize Each Message:
Except when being called into the principal’s office, everyone likes being called by their name. In this impersonal world of email messages, people like to know that you know who they are, and that you care about them as a person.
Nothing is worse than a highly demanding email that is sent without being addressed to someone by name and is out of context. I’m much more willing to help someone who personalizes the message to me, and gives me a non-threatening reason why this needs to really be done by tomorrow.

8. Always include your contact information:
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve not returned a call promptly because I didn’t have someone’s contact information readily available. In this age of iPhones, Blackberries, and cellphones, it’s rare that I have a phone number memorized. So many people rush through their phone number, making it virtually impossible to write down the number without having to go back and listen to their message a couple of extra times.
Ideally, you should always give your phone number, say it slowly, and
repeat it twice so that someone can write it down and then make sure it’s correct. Effective emails always include a signature line with contact information. You should include your contact information in every new message or every message you reply to.

9. Strong Call to Action:
In direct marketing or email correspondence, most of the time you want someone to take a specific action when they receive your message. The most effective email messages always have a strong call to action, telling the recipient what you want them to do.
Email is a low context medium. It doesn’t transmit behavioral clues like voice inflection that might otherwise indicate what you want a person to do.
So it’s important to be direct and ask what you want the other person to do.
It sounds basic, but it’s a key to effective email.

10. Paste Links & Get on the Same Page:

How many times have you felt that the person receiving your email just isn’t on the same page as you? A lot of times it’s literally true. You might be thinking that they are looking at one page on a website, when in fact they are looking at something completely different.
I know I’ve been frustrated by this in the past. Simple pasting a link into an email is the best strategy. Again, it seems simple, but it can mean the difference between confusion and clarity. Sending someone the exact link to the website page you are discussing gets everyone on the same page.

Yoga: 10 Important Guidelines for Kundalini Yoga Practice

The following is a list of suggestions to help guide you on how to practice Kundalini Yoga, Kundalini Yoga Kriyas (sets) and Yoga sessions in general.

Kundalini Yoga Attire:
Clothing should generally be loose and comfortable. Unlike other schools of Yoga, in Kundalini Yoga it is advisable to keep the shoulders and spine covered, so practicing without any covering on the upper body is not recommended. This has to do with the awakening, flow and distribution of Kundalini Shakti up and down the back, specially its movement via the 3 main psychic channels (ida, pingala and shushumna) that lie in and along the spinal cord.

Kundalini Yoga is generally practiced barefoot.
A blanket can be used to cover the body after doing a Kundalini Yoga kriya during the relaxation period. Most Kriyas are followed by a period of relaxation that is usually done in corpse pose (shav asana) and during this time the body temperature tends to drop, so a blanket (or shawl) can be used to stay warm and comfortable. You will fall asleep at least once, no worries we have all done it :-).

Kundalini Yoga Diet:
This is a rather big topic, but here I will just provide some important
Try not to eat at least 2-3 hours before doing your Kundalini Yoga kriyas and asanas. Given that Kundalini Yoga uses many different bandhas (body locks), pranayamas (breathing exercises), asanas and vigorous movement, you could be quite uncomfortable if your stomach is still full.
Use a nutrient bar or other healthy snack if you feel you need some energy prior to your yoga set.
Although Yoga in general recommends a Sattvic diet (foods that promote calmness and clarity), and not rajasic foods (energetic foods that promote activity) or tamasic foods (foods that promote heaviness and dull the mind),  due to the physical, energetic nature of Kundalini Yoga, including some rajasic foods in your diet is not a significant issue. Still it is recommended that the bulk of your diet be sattvic. Sattvic foods are generally fresh and sweet such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, honey etc. Rajasic foods are generally spicy and stimulating, such as onions, garlic, eggs, fish, tea etc. Tamasic foods are fatty foods, stale food, meat, etc.
Kundalini Yoga Kriyas are designed to force the organs, tissues, nerves and vessels to expel buried toxins out into the elimination systems of the body. So after any kriya or tough yoga set, one should drink plenty of water to help cleanse the body of these toxins and waste that have been released.

Kundalini Yoga Breathing:
Kunadalini Yoga significantly relies on the Science of Pranayama
(breathing exercises) to work its magic. Each exercise and asana is
accompanied by a specific pranayama. Unless it is specifically specified all pranayama should be done through the nose.
Although Jal Neti (washing the nostrils with saline water) is recommended for cleaning the nasal passageways to help maximize the benefits of the pranayamas, it is advisable as a minimum to keep a box of tissues handy.

Kundalini Yoga Safety:
Some Kundalini Yoga Kriyas can be quite challenging and it is
recommended to always do warm-ups first before doing these tough sets and asanas. There are several good easy kriyas and sets which work very well as warm-ups to the tough kriyas. It is especially important to do spinal warm-ups as charging the cerebrospinal fluid within the spinal cord and brain assists in the flow of awakened Kundalini Shakti.  
This item can’t be emphasized enough. Don’t overdo it. Try to walk the middle ground between fanaticism and laziness. This goes for both, your overall practice and also for each kriya and asana you do. In other words,  each exercise you do should not be too easy and not be too hard, and your overall sadhana (spiritual practice) should be equally balanced, between being ridiculously ambitious or excessively easy. With regard to your sadhana try to establish a steady, long-term daily practice, rather than doing 10 hours a day for 2 weeks and then nothing after that.
This is probably the most important guideline. Use common sense with regard to injuries. Use modifications that are provided for the difficult asanas and exercises and back off if you feel you are risking injury. Also, feel free to increase the relaxation time between exercises or reduce the time suggested for doing a particular exercise to suit your pace. As my yoga teacher Ravi Singh used to say, Kundalini Yoga is all about you and you – it is not a competition – so listen to your body and let your inner voice guide and direct you.
The Kundalini Yoga teachings and methodology provided here have been perfected over the centuries to not only, optimize the benefits of the kriyas, but, also to reduce any dangers and risks associated with awakening Kundalini Shakti. The general idea is not to activate the chakras by excessively using the Beej Mantas (seed sounds) associated with each chakra or other direct methods; the idea, instead, is simply to prepare the system physically, emotionally and mentally for greater and greater flow of Kundalini Shakti. The approach is to trust the Universe to awaken this energy in accordance with the level of preparation. This approach helps
avoid many of the difficulties involved with the premature awakening of Kundalini that one sometimes comes across in the literature.

Kundalini Yoga Teachings:
It is suggested to initially learn Kundalini Yoga from a teacher who can ensure that the knowledge is accurately transferred. If possible you should at least try to attend a few live yoga classes so that you can get a feel for the kriyas, asanas, and pranayamas. But keep in mind that the real Guru is within and is always available to guide you if asked.
There is also some good literature and websites available which provide guidance and resources for practicing kundalini yoga. You can look for books written by Swami Satyananda Saraswati and Ravi Singh or visit their websites for more information. Of course you can also go to the Kundalini Yoga Section or the general Yoga Section of this website for plenty of good stuff too :-D.

When to Practice Kundalini Yoga:
In general Kundalini Yoga should be practiced in the early morning hours. But if you can’t do your sadhana at that time, it is fine to practice at other times of the day as well. Some kriyas, such as those that help you sleep, etc. of course need to be practiced at their designated times. Below are some reasons to motivate you to practice in the early morning hours. You can also ready The Secret on How to Become an Early Riser if this is something you want to accomplish.
Early morning is called brahmamuhurta in Sanskrit. It literally means “The Divine Time.” This is the time of the day when the spiritual energy on our lovely planet is at its highest.
The air at this time is fresh and contains the greatest amount of prana (cosmic life force).
The mind is also fresh and unburdened with the worries of everyday life. This will help in the practice of concentration and meditation.
This is the time of day when you are least likely to be distracted by the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The stomach is empty, which is necessary before practicing many of the Yoga asanas and pranayamas.

Where to Practice Kundalini Yoga:
It is important for the place where you practice Kundalini Yoga to be neat, spacious and clean, but more importantly it should be well ventilated. You can also use a fan to keep the air fresh, but make sure it is not pointed directly at you. Practicing outdoors is fine as well, although in direct sunlight it may become too warm due to the energetic pranamayas and exercises.

Tools for Kundalini Yoga Practice:
It is fine to use inspirational music when doing the Kundalini Yoga kriyas and sets, but music in general should not be used when doing the meditations, unless it is specified otherwise.
You can use a firm cushion, yoga block or folded blanket to sit on if it helps take the pressure off your knees, hips and back. You may also use a zafu, smile cushion and zabuton to practice the meditations or kriyas if you like. I have ordered my zafus and zabutons from here and have been very happy with them
It is recommended for obvious reasons to make sure you are not practicing on a slippery surface. A yoga mat or appropriate yoga rug should be used.
To help you stretch and hold certain asanas it is fine to use a yoga blocks or yoga straps.
Yoga neck pillows or folded blankets are fine to use to support your neck or lower back (by placing under your knees) during relaxation periods while in shav asana and similar asana.

Medical Conditions and Kundalini Yoga Practice:
Kundalini Yoga should never be practiced under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You are about to awaken the most potent force within yourself, trust me you won’t need to get a high of anything else once you start this journey.
If you are taking prescription medication, or are under medical supervision you should check with your health care provider before starting a Kundalini Yoga Program.
If you are pregnant you should check with your health care provider before proceeding. There are also Kundalini Yoga kriyas specifically designed for Pre-natal and Post-natal periods.

Kundalini Yoga Attitude:
Be committed and trust in the Universal Forces to guide, nourish and deliver you. Kundalini Yoga is a very powerful science and you will find it an invaluable asset in helping you reach and surpass your maximum potential

Make love in Virtual Reality

Dating: 8 Simple Rules for Dating Your Ex

Dating your ex again isn’t the same as dating someone new. You have a romantic history together and that changes the whole dynamics of
approaching, asking for a date and entering into a relationship.
One of the hardest things to do is figuring out which behaviors are proper and which are potentially damaging. Here are 8 simple rules that can help you not only make the experience a positive one but actually get your ex back into your life — for good!

1. Make sure you are emotionally available
So much hurt, so much regret, so much anger, and so much fear can make you emotionally unavailable on virtually every level imaginable. If it is likely that you will fail because of a sense of inadequacy/ insecurity, neediness, desperation, guilt, anger, jealousy etc. then don’t even start trying to get your ex back. In this state, you are not at your best and you are not thinking clearly and rationally. The amount of time and effort it takes for each person to once again become emotionally available differs according to the time and effort each wastes ranting, raving, stalking, moping around and
missing their ex.

I’m Live

2. Be honest with yourself and your relationship worthiness
We’ve all heard it before, “before anyone can love you, you must love yourself”. So before you even contact your ex, remember one very important thing: nothing you do will work without love for yourself. It starts with loving yourself, being honest to yourself, and having enough confidence in yourself. When you are honest with yourself, you’re able to be honest with others. When you are confident and self-assured, you’re able to be assertive with people without being needy, pushy or aggressive.

3. Take responsibility for your part in the break-up and learn from
your mistakes
Whether you admit it or not you contributed to the problems in the
relationship in some small or large way, so own up and accept your
mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. When you blame your ex, other people, God, or the universe itself, you distance yourself from any possible lesson and acceleration of progress. But if you courageously stand up and honestly say “This is my mistake and I am responsible” even if only privately to yourself, you begin to see a way forward instead of being stuck in the past. And just as you learn when to not fall into the same hole when you’re walking around the block, you have more chance of success when you can avoid the same mistakes next time round the block.

My Dirty Hobby

4. Do NOT hurry or try to force anything
Be realistic about your situation and what can be achieved in a given time.
Trying to put everything on fast forward is a huge mistake that actually slows down the process — and even permanently halts it. Just because you want your ex back so bad, does NOT mean they feel the same about you at that point in time. As a general rule of thumb, if they haven’t responded to your attempts at making contact after three to four tries and you know they have access to phones, email and the internet, let it go and stop trying.
They might well surprise you –better to be pleasantly surprised than disappointed and devastated because you acted out of neediness and desperation.

5. Don’t try to create the same relationship again, instead create one that is better than the old one
You cannot start a new relationship with your ex from where the old one ended. The end of a relationship is literary the death of it. The attraction and feelings you have for each other may still be the same but the relationship you had ended. And precisely because of that painful experience you are no longer the same people. The very experience of breaking-up changes who you are, who you think the other is and how you see reality. Because you are no longer the same people, look at this experience as two new people, starting a new relationship together. You’ll find it much easier and you are more likely to get a more positive outcome if you give up the idea of trying to fix an old relationship and instead try to create a new and better one.

6. Use each and every contact as an opportunity to make an
emotional connection
Really take the time to focus your attention fully on your ex as a unique individual, even if it’s just for a brief period of time. Just being fully present and attentively listening to him or her and what is really going on in his or her life– feelings, needs, secrets, hopes, fears, embarrassments, expectations — and then asking the impact of events such as how they felt when a certain thing happened provides the safety and reassurance needed to create emotional intimacy. By doing this, the other person feels seen, heard, validated, and cared for.

Fun Movies

7. Focus on the positive instead of focusing on the negative
It’s impossible to make a positive impression and meaningful influence when you’re recalling negative emotions and constantly bringing up bad memories. And it’s self-defeating (and stupid) to be trying to get your ex  back while at the same time you are blaming, criticizing, lecturing and even arguing with him or her. Nobody likes to have to defend themselves or be forced into a corner. That’s just too much stress. If you are distressed by your ex’s actions/words then you need to change the way in which you react to them otherwise you are setting yourself up for intense mood  swings and even depressive episodes — let alone another break up.

8. Do not assume anything, always seek to understand and be
Always ask your ex for clarification if you are not too sure about what he or she is saying; and be open to several solutions. Look outside the box and see if the two of you can agree on the important stuff and let the small stuff take care of themselves. On some issues, you will have to give in. On other issues, you will have to ask him or her to do something that will bring a calmer perspective to the situation as well as new ideas. If you want him or her to do something and he or she is resisting, ask him or her to try it for a
limited time, such as a week, and then evaluate the situation. This makes him or her feel that he or she is not locked into a decision and that you have his or her best interest at heart.
I am not going to lie to you; this is not going to be easy. There will be a lot of work to do and you’ll meet with some resistance from time to time. Just remember there are so many men and women out there who have done it!!

Trading: 8 Important Tips for Successfully Trading Options

Trading: 8 Important Tips for Successfully Trading Options

It sounds simple and you’ve certainly heard it before but, “Do not trade stocks or options with money that’s needed for other necessities or you cannot afford to lose.” It’s not my rule, but it does make a lot of sense.
There is more than enough pressure in options trading without making it harder on yourself. It reduces your chances of trading successfully and clouds your judgment. Although I tend to be more of a risk taker than most of our Options Newsletter Subscribers, in every possible way, be sure to follow this rule.
As the saying goes, “The market hurts as many people as it can, as often as it can.”

“Insure your positions from loss.” Buying put options on stocks that you already own or stocks in the same sector provides your portfolio with very inexpensive insurance while maintaining your upside potential. Buying cheap “out-of-the-money” puts gives you a safety net for a very nominal price (and you’ll sleep like a baby). You’ll find that, more times than not, both positions eventually become profitable. In institutional circles it’s called “hedging.”

Buy call options to initiate a long position. By buying “near-the-money” calls on stocks you believe are undervalued, you can participate in the upside movement of the stock price. You can also sell the option contract at any time for a profit. Options give you the ability to apply “leverage” to your investing while completely limiting any possible loss to the amount paid for the option itself. If the stock price drops, the most you can loose is the amount you paid for option, nothing more.

Choose options that are undervalued, underpriced and trading “close-to-the-money” (the stock price is trading close to the options strike price).
Look for as much time as possible (determined by the option pricing) before option expiration date in buying both puts and calls.

A limit order requires that you get the exact price you want to pay or the trade won’t be made. Initially, when buying options with “limit orders” it might take a few tries getting an order filled at the price you want to pay, but it is worth it. Try setting a limit order at a price between the “bid” and the “ask” price. Knowing that most stock prices fluctuate even during the course of a day, this will help you get filled at a better price, get filled more often and save you a good amount of money over time.

Sometimes it makes sense to exit a trade that’s not going your way. Setting “sell stops” is a personal decision and it’s one that every trader wrestles with. There have been volumes written on sound money management and in the next section I will be covering the subject in much more depth. Most traders set between 10% & 50% down in value as a loss limit. The reasoning is that once a trade has lost 50% of it’s value, rarely will you see it make a full recovery, much less become profitable… better to cut you loss and look for a spot to get the strength out of your money. Options are a cash business (yes it’s a business) and you have a limited amount of time to either win or lose. The more a trade goes against you the less money you have in your account that’s available for the next trading opportunity.

You need to know where to find stock/option buying opportunities with a 3-1 risk/reward potential. This is a quite normal risk to profit ratio to look for when trading options. To do this, it’s advisable to find one or two good stock/options advisory newsletters with a good track record such as our “Hyland Option Traders” service. In doing this you can take advantage of extensive stock research and concentrate on managing your trades and your money properly. It is not necessary or advised that you spend every spare minute researching individual stocks in the hopes of uncovering a gem when when you can have a professional lead you in the right direction.
I’m assuming you became interested in options trading to make more money so you can have more free time… not to take on another 20-30 hour a week part time job researching potential trades. It can be very time consuming.

“Leaps” options is one of the most important tools that can tilt the odds of winning in your favor. Leaps stand for “Long-Term Equity Appreciation Securities”. When you combine undervalued stocks with Leaps options your chances for profit are greatly increased. The value of this tool is that their option expiration dates are 1-2 years in length with all the leverage of regular option contracts. Leaps are such a valuable weapon in the options trader’s arsenal that I am including an entire section on their use in the coming Option Trader’s Classes.

Russian brides - Meet Your Russian Bride Here!

Welcome to the charming world of beautiful Russian Brides!

Self-hypnosis: 7 Steps to Use Self-Hypnosis to Desensitize

Step One: Enter a receptive state of mind:
Take several nice deep breaths, and as you let it out, imagine relaxing your body and softening your muscles. Engage in the moment, focus on your breathing, get really comfortable, and let your body kind of begin to melt and float down and relax.

Be an observer of your own experience and just feel everything letting go, absolutely nothing for you to do, just relax. Enjoy the stillness and allow your body to be properly, deeply still. Go inside your mind and just observe what is happening inside you while you are relaxing.
Ideally, go get my book, The Secrets of Self-Hypnosis, and learn how to develop a good level of trance for yourself. Otherwise, use whatever form of meditation or relaxation that is right for you. Then, when you are ready and inwardly focused, proceed to Step Two.

Step Two
You’ll have heard of this… Now start to imagine that you are tensing
various muscle groups in turn… Don’t actually tense them. Just imagine that you are tensing them. Of course, if you really imagine that you are clenching your fist tightly, for example, you may find your hand muscles tense a little as a result. That’s fine. Imagining the feelings of tension first makes it easier for you to then relax the muscles more deeply than usual, and that’s just what you’re going to do now. After the tension, go ahead and actually relax each muscle group as deeply as you possibly can, if possible, beyond your usual levels of relaxation.
Begin by imagining that every muscle in your body is becoming tense and rigid… Really keep that feeling of tension in mind for a few seconds.
Imagine all the muscles are growing more rigid. Then very slowly, relax the body as much as possible.
Work your awareness through your legs, your arms and the remainder of your body — especially make sure you relax your shoulders deeply, your forehead and tiniest of facial muscles using this process, just imagining that you are tensing them, then relaxing them massively.
Imagine for a few seconds you are tensing each of the muscles, then, very slowly, relax the muscles as much as you can… You might want to imagine relaxing colors spreading through the muscles; you may want to repeat the words ‘relax’, or ‘soften’ to yourself as each muscle eases further…
End up imagining your eyelids are being squeezed tightly shut and relax them, knowing that the entire body is really deeply relaxed. Keep your attention on what you are doing, not allowing yourself to wander from the process. Your relaxation needs to be mindful in order for this to be most beneficial.
Now imagine that even your breathing is becoming more and more
relaxed… Relax your body so deeply that your breathing changes all by itself. When the body is relaxed, it uses less energy, so the breath
becomes more shallow and gentle. Let your breathing gently take you deeper into the relaxation and continue with this until you feel relaxed enough to take the next step in the process.

Step Three
Now, before we progress to the main crux of this process, scan through your entire body. If you notice any last tiny traces of tension whatsoever, just imagine the feeling turning into a cloud of colored mist or something similar that appeals to you. Maybe you can just imagine it all relaxing away, melting into nothingness.
So this is just really letting go of any last remnants of anything unwanted and leaving you really ready to crack on with the next step.

Step Four
So now just imagine the scene you thought about prior to starting with this session, that used to make you feel anxious in some way. While you think of it, do just remain nicely and enjoyably relaxed. Think of relaxation, imagine relaxation, focus on letting go more deeply… As you relax, you are neutralizing any tension or discomfort that you used to associate with that old stimulus, instead allowing those peaceful feelings spread into your life and into future situations. Really get that lodged into your mind as you relax
and think of that situation at the same time.
Do really imagine that you are in that scene right now… See it through your own eyes, as if it is actually happening right now… Make it seem real… All the time remaining wonderfully relaxed. Really believe you are there right now, facing those things, being in that place, hearing those sounds… and continue to let go and relax deeply.
Now fade that scene completely for a few moments. Continue to relax…
Calm your mind and smile to yourself inside.
As we did right at the very beginning, just before Step One, on a scale of 1- 10, what was your level of discomfort as you imagined that scene just now?
Tell yourself that number and when you know it, move on to the next step.

Step Five
At this stage, deepen your relaxation. Maybe count your breaths from 10 down to 1 and saying the word ‘soften’ again as you drift deeper, or maybe imagine walking down some stairs, or imagining all your muscles relaxing again.
So that now, imagine the very same scene again and as you do imagine that, concentrate and focus on remaining beautifully relaxed and at ease.
Run through the scene in your mind, the scene that used to make you feel anxious. As you continue to relax, really imagine that you are in that scene right now, as if it is really happening, and continue to let go and relax completely.
Then give yourself a score of 1-10 to rate your discomfort again. Ideally,
repeat this process over and over until you reach zero, and even persist with it after you have reached zero.

Step Six
So up until now, you have been facing your fears or anxiety stimulus and overcoming them by simply relaxing, that is it!
You can always remember how to do that, can’t you? I think it is underrated and under used by therapists thinking that things need to be more complex than this.
The more you do this and practice it, the better and better you’ll be at relaxing your fears and anxieties away… You’ll find that you begin to feel more relaxed and confident in a wider and wider variety of different and related situations in your life.
Great, eh?

Step Seven
So when you are ready and calm, begin to get a sense of your body again, take a deep relaxing breath, and just let it radiate through you. Let your mind be open to well-being, balance, and harmony.
Then go ahead and wiggle your toes and fingers, open your eyes, tune in to your surroundings. Nice and simple, eh?
