I’ve Abandoned My Organs? Who Knew?

“I Can Handle This!  I’m Just Fine!” We may be going through a lot in our lives, but most of the time we “grin and bear it, push onward, keep going and never surrender”.  After all, isn’t that The American Way? The mind tells us to do that and we listen.  After all, anything less […]

Paralysis by Analysis

It all starts with good intentions.  We want to help our family members, work hard enough to earn a good living and keep out bodies looking and feeling good.  What’s wrong with that?  Well, when we focus too much on all three of these simultaneously, our brain gets all revved up and goes into high gear, […]
