I must say I found American politics riveting ever since I was kid. Especially when election time rolls around. It’s certainly a lot of more interesting than the politics north of the border. This year’s election pitting Hillary Clinton and the smack talking billionaire Donald Trump has been one of the most controversial in […]

How to Tame Your Stressful Thoughts
According to studies, stress can have a detrimental long term effect on your memory and brain. The years of constant stress causes the body to flood itself with the stress hormone cortisol. This causes part of the brain responsible for memory to deteriorate. To deal with stress, it is important to practice mindfulness in order to recognize when it is occurs and the appropriate action to take. Remember, you can always control your thoughts but not always the events around you.
Re-framing you thoughts is highly beneficial when it comes to dealing with stressful situations. Stop for a moment, acknowledge the stressful event, than ask yourself what is the best way to respond to the stressful event. When people fail to practice mindfulness they fill their mind with constant worry, replaying the event in their minds over and over again. This leads to more stress and anxiety. By practicing the art of re-framing you will find yourself becoming calmer and reduce your stress.

You’ve probably have heard millions of times over again through the media that we need to cut down on our sugar, eat less processed foods, red meat, and refine carbohydrates. Instead, we should consume more fresh vegetables preferably in their raw state, along with beans such as legumes and lentils. The problem is most of […]
The practice of meditation has been a mainstay of Chinese martial arts for centuries. As a child, I remember my father practiced meditation, tai chi and being present before work. This was during a time he lost his business to bankruptcy. The struggle with daily finances made the household a very stressful environment to grow […]
