We all have PTSD

 

In light of the past few years, as I watch people in my grocery store avoid eye contact, or road rage incidents escalate, I know that we all have some sort of PTSD. This is not a simple headache or toothache. We cannot just “take two pills” and feel cured. And this problem is going to take more than one phone call.  Continue reading Take Two Pills and Call Me, Cupcake (We all have PTSD)

Don’t be Such a Scaredy-Cat, Cupcake! (10 Ways To Help Your Mind Overcome Its Fear)

scaredycatI have a friend who volunteered to help the psychology department in their study of willful blindness. In one part of the experiment, she was given a seriously horrible picture (it was an extremely graphic murder scene that not even the horror movie writers could describe). The picture was hidden underneath twenty sheets of thin paper, like onion paper or tracing paper, and all she could see on the top was a gray shadow. She was to remove one sheet at a time, look at the shadow for 30 seconds, and if she could tell what the picture was, she was to tell the administrator and stop. If she could not identify the image in the picture, she was instructed to remove the next sheet of paper and study it for 30 seconds. This would continue until she could recognize what she was seeing. “I swear,” she told me, “the closer I got to the picture, the more blurry it became. I could not for the life of me figure it out.” She was almost to the actual photograph when she knew what they had given her. She said she actually screamed and dropped the assignment. It had taken her eighteen pages, because her brain had refused to see what it knew would upset her and possibly give her nightmares. So how do we avoid this willful blindness? How do we work with our brain so that it stops being such a scaredy-cat and helps motivate us toward our goals instead? Well, my friend, here’s a list of 10 ways you can overcome fear and be the successful cupcake kind of person that you deserve to be. Continue reading Don’t be Such a Scaredy-Cat, Cupcake!

Black Fire workout with Bob Harper, www.DailyBurn.com

I’m dying. Not like “buried in the ground” dying, but definitely at the end of my rope. I am exhausted. My heart rate is just barely faster than a bunny rabbit’s, and I’m in the cool down. I can’t hold my leg up for a quad stretch because my arms are too weak. Everything feels heavy, and I am covered in so much sweat that I am my very own swimming pool. My friend, Heather Santo, shared Bob Harper’s new Daily Burn workout site on her Facebook page, and I thought to myself, If Heather thinks it’s great, it’s gotta be a ton of fun, right?

When we work on self-improvement, we often try to “let go” of things, and most people agree this is best for us. If we rid ourselves of “items” or emotions that no longer serve us, we will be happier, more complete. Our brain patterns will change with our sacrifice, because we are sacrificing that which harms us.

But is this all we have to do? Is sacrifice truly the key ingredient to making ourselves one hundred percent amazing? Continue reading What Can You Add to Your Cupcake? (10 Ways to Change Your Brain Pattern Without Thinking)
