The opportunity cost of no

I used to think they would act less responsibly. Second, these exercises record the bigger picture of change so that when the present moment is not what you want it to be, instead of feeling hopeless or useless, you can refer to a memory bank of past successes, and a track record of longer-term progress. One bad day does not cancel out six previous good days, though that's not how it feels when you're in the middle of the bad day. Looking at a record of the good days can remind you they are just as real. Third, these exercises collect data for you to analyze. When you've been tracking your exercise and sleep and make a connection between not exercising and lying awake at night worrying, you can do something about it. The Happiness Scale This exercise, developed for CRAFT, will help you gauge your satisfaction in a variety of areas, not only in terms of your loved one and his problems. It directs you to areas of your life you may have been neglecting or forgotten even existed--areas you may want to target for change. We suggest redoing the Happiness Scale every so often (monthly, perhaps) to compare your new ratings with the past. Emotional states will never perfectly translate into numbers, but there's value in trying, and we only ask that you compare yourself to yourself. Thank you, Please, Can I help you, You look great, I love you', I appreciate what you are doing and Be blessed are words they use often touching and influencing people around them positively. I read the following story about honesty and sincerity and I want to share it with you: Many years ago a logger lived in a small village. He was sincere in his work and very honest. Every day he went out into the nearby forest to cut trees. He brought the wood back into the village and sold it to a merchant to earn his keep. He earned just about enough to make a living, but he was content with his simple living. One day, while chopping a tree near a river, his axe slipped out of his hand and fell into the river. The river was very deep and he could not retrieve it on his own.

He only had that one axe which was lying at the bottom of the river. Their role is to help clients learn to sort and develop organizing systems and to provide structure and motivation to complete work at home. Most professional organizers require private payment, although occasionally public funds may pay for services through organizations that serve the disabled and elderly. Professional organizers can be very helpful in treating hoarding, and some aspects of CBT for hoarding (see article 7) are drawn from professional organizing practices. Because professional organizers are not mandated reporters, they may not recognize hoarding situations that violate the rights of vulnerable individuals or fail to meet safety and health codes. At the same time, they have developed specific tools to assess clutter and disorganization, although to our knowledge no formal research has been done on the validity and reliability of these measures or on the impact of professional organizing interventions for hoarding. Focus on: families and other sources of help for hoarding Hoarding presents a number of challenging problems, including health and safety risks, that have an adverse impact on the person who is hoarding and their family members. Tensions result from differing opinions about the need to address the problem, and strong emotions often arise in determining the best strategies for tackling the problematic saving and acquiring behavior. Resistance and mistrust commonly characterize interactions between family members and the loved one who is hoarding. Strategies to reduce harm, enhance motivation, and improve communication skills can be helpful to both sufferers and family members in reducing these unwanted negative interactions. JOY arises to help you feel a blissful sense of openhearted connection to others, to ideas, or to experiences. Expansion, inspiration, brilliance, bliss Thank you for this wonderful moment! ANXIETY (or WORRY ) is focused on the future. It arises to help you look ahead and identify the tasks you need to complete or the deadlines you need to meet. Foresight, focus, task completion, procrastination alert! What brought this feeling forward? What truly needs to get done? Many of the emotions that travel alongside anxiety (such as fear, depression, or shame) are mistakenly valenced as negative. We don't usually learn to love or befriend these emotions, and we don't develop skills beyond clumsy expression or various forms of repression.

Instead, we learn to work around these emotions, without them, against them, or despite them. It comes from being born under the last sign of the zodiac. You often issue ultimatums, call down fiery curses, and paint doomsday scenarios if you're feeling persecuted. Apocalypses were a dime a dozen in the ancient world. The revenge fantasies of slaves, they fed the broken spirits of people who felt defeated in this world but knew that they would be redeemed in the next. This is the part of you that can be deeply pessimistic--annihilistic even. The part of you that just wants to throw in the towel. Thankfully, you have another ruling planet, Jupiter. Jupiter is the planet of what I believe, and it represents the God that we imagine. We can imagine a God outside ourselves--a Supreme Being that created the Universe in seven days but somehow remains conspicuously absent from our day-to-day life (and let's face it, if somebody initiated the nuclear launch codes tomorrow, it's unlikely that this God would intervene)--or we can imagine a God inside ourselves and ask the question: What would God do? Well, certainly not abandon this world and all of the beautiful things in it. It's a vicious cycle. The gut's immune system is influenced by negative emotions as well as negative relationships and becomes leaky (as does the blood-brain barrier). This leaky gut (and brain) with its reduced immunity causes a host of downstream metabolic changes, such as chronic inflammation, that increase negative emotions and make relationships more difficult, which makes the gut leakier still, etc, in a downward spiral. It is important to remember that all systems interact: Emotions and relationships affect the immune system, microbiome and gut permeability, which impact emotions and relationships, which further negatively affect the gut. An overly porous, leaky gut is caused by problems with the tight junctions. Tight junctions, as explained earlier, are the one-cell thick membranes that maintain the boundary between the outside and inside of the intestinal wall. When tight junctions are operating well, they allow nutrients in and keep out toxins, molds, bacteria, viruses, and food particles. However, when tight junctions are porous and leaky, they let in the very toxins they were designed to keep out. Tight junctions are also key to the integrity of the blood-brain barrier: They keep out harmful pathogens and let in what nourishes and protects the brain.

One of the greatest threats to the brain and emotional health (as well as to the body and physical health) is disruption of a person's tight junctions. After fifteen minutes in the sun without protection, those spots will reappear. If You Have . Crow's-feet You could try: Botox. It will relax the lines, and if they aren't too deep, this may be enough to make them nearly disappear. Wait a couple of weeks after a Botox injection, and if the lines still bother you, your doctor can use an injectable filler, such as CosmoDerm, to plump them up. Frown lines You could try: Botox. The protocol is pretty much the same as for crow's-feet. You need to relax the muscles to keep you from furrowing, then fill any remaining deeper lines with one of the fillers. Procrastination will have a negative impact on your productivity. Pushing things to a later time only increases your anxiety. You will fill your mind with constant worry since you are never sure whether you will complete a particular task or not. Bearing this in mind, it is not surprising that you will find yourself overthinking because you have developed a habit of procrastinating. This section discusses the main reasons why people procrastinate, how it affects you, and the best ways to overcome procrastination. About one-fifth of adults procrastinate. Instead of doing something right away, you decide to do it later. Unfortunately, this takes a toll on you as it leads to reduced productivity, poor mental health, increased worry and stress, etc Why Do People Procrastinate?

Have you ever stopped to question yourself why you keep procrastinating even though you know very well that it has a negative impact on how your wellbeing? If you fully understood this, you would realize that you can have everything you need and desire. The Power within us is willing to give us our fondest dreams and enormous abundance in an instant. Are you open to receiving it? If you want something, the Universe doesn't say, I'll think about it. It readily responds and sends it through. However, you must be open and ready in order to receive it. I have noticed that sometimes when people come to my lectures, they sit with their arms folded across their chests. How are they going to let anything in? It is a wonderful gesture to open your arms wide so that the Universe notices and responds. I invite you to do that right now. After you go for a run, your brain is most susceptible to creating new neural pathways Your memory improves, meaning that you retain material you have learned much better You become much more creative The most incredible research about the positive benefits of exercise was done by Michael Babyak from Duke Medical School: He took 156 patients with major depression - people in very bad shape - showing a number of symptoms like insomnia, eating disorders, lack of desire to act, depressed mood, many of them suicidal with attempts or thoughts about suicide and divided them into three groups. The first group did 3 x 30 minutes of exercise of moderate difficulty (jogging, swimming. The second group was put on medication (Zoloft), and the third group was on medication and exercise. After four months Babyak got some stunning results: 60% of the subjects were not experiencing the major symptoms of depression anymore, meaning they recovered! All groups experienced similar improvements in happiness which means that exercise proved just as helpful as antidepressants! The medication group took about 10-14 days to get over depression, while the exercise group took close to a month - but later there was no difference. Amazing isn't it?
