“I’m only a teen, and I talk to somebody about my anxiety issues. She said I have high anxiety, and I also have nightmares. I HATE being alone. Even in my own house. I’ve talked to my therapist about meditation, deep breathing exercises, and muscle relaxation. But when I get to sleep and wake up from one of these nightmares, it just makes me sweat and breathe faster and faster. Tips?”

Normally, I would say if you feel very anxious, the best remedy is to exercise. That’s because your body goes into a “flight or flight” state and so it basically prepares for exercise, to enable you to fight or run away, so it’s the perfect natural solution… Continue reading
Some of the stuff you need to be happy and healthy is obvious. Things like diet and exercise — although these have their own pitfalls to watch out for.
But some things are not so obvious… It can take quite a bit of reflection to connect all the dots and see what’s taking us away from happiness…
One of those, and a very big one, is CHAOS…
You know, we demand order from others. If we went on vacation and found the apartment a mess, we’d be up in arms. If we went to complain but no-one was there, we’d be furious. If we went for a swim and found the water disgusting, we’d demand our money back and jump on the next flight home… Continue reading
What’s your best moment to moment focus?
The answer is “THE LIST” — specifically your Regular Actions List…
How to get things done
Woody Allen famously said “99% of success is showing up.” When you dance through your Regular Actions List, you regularly show up for all those things that need your attention.
The result of this is not restriction but FREEDOM. Freedom from worry about the little things and freedom from the chaos that results from unfocused activity. The List frees your mind to enjoy the moment because the List HOLDS your life together in the most efficient way possible… Continue reading
If you want to build a house, you don’t start by calling the brick layer!
With house building it’s obvious you need to start with a plan but with your health and happiness; not so obvious :-)
Lots of people have figured out that a certain thing makes them feel much better. It could be running, meditation or whatever — and they do that thing in heaps. But it’s uncommon to find someone who understands the BIG PICTURE, who acts on the truth — that “everything affects everything else.” Continue reading
Think of your day as a kind of “dance” that’s unique to you.
Your dance needs to automatically take care of everything that matters to you and produces the thing you really want — happiness.
My friend and I talk about health a lot. But I couldn’t believe what he said to me the other day.
“When you come over, we can go shopping and you can show me how it’s done.”
That came as a bit of a shock to me!
What could be easier? You go round and put fruits, veg, nuts, seeds and good protein sources in your trolley, then you pay :-)
But of course it’s easy to assume that everyone knows what you know. If you’re used to having cereals, sandwiches and pizza as your staple diet, the fruit and veg aisles can look a bit daunting… Continue reading
