If you don't want to age, you can't push the pause button on time. If there isn't enough time to complete your to-do list, you can't add hours to the day. If you are missing a deceased loved one, you can't bring them back to life. You don't have control over the world, but you can take control over yours.
Everyone has emotional buttons. These may include worries about relationships, employment, and various fears about the future. When something or someone pushes those buttons, our emotions often take over completely, and we respond in an irrational manner.
For example, if we hear a rumor about layoffs at the workplace, we might decide we are going to be fired. If that happens, we might not be able to find another job. If that happens, we might be unable to pay the rent and be evicted. If that happens, we might have to live in a cardboard box at MLK and W. Fayette. This is an example of catastrophization: believing that something that hasn't even happened will turn ...
The act of getting everything that you've ever wanted is unbelievably simple. All you have to do is ask. That's right, just ask. You can ask God-Some people call this praying or the universe or the Cosmic Joker. Who you ask is not as important as (1) that you do indeed ask and (2) what you ask for. I like to keep it simple : I ask for good health for myself, friends and family and for quality time with my family (and friends); food on my plate and a roof overhead-okay I will come clean and say that my latest request is fuller, thicker hair-but don't tell anyone! What would you ask for if you could have anything you wanted and what is stopping you from doing it?
Currently, if you go to a social gathering or event, you will frequently hear the words “my therapist says…”, which often provokes empathy, curiosity, and maybe additional disclosure from others. Contrary to times past, you are very unlikely to face any awkwardness or judgment from people. Actually, some people think it’s cool.
But what is behind this modern trend? What has caused this willingness to spill all of our most private thoughts and feelings in front of a professional who is paid to hear our frustrations?
Every single day, millions of people in the developed world wake up to the same sequence of events — our daily lives use up so much of our time and energy that it is inevitable that we lose a certain amount of awareness. We may also have to adopt certain behavior patterns that are not true to our identity in order to get by. Therefore, it is also inevitable that we will seek a place to open up and be our true self. This full disclosure often ...
This method of colon cleansing is amazing because it allows the client to be in control and have total privacy. You can bring someone/assitance if need help getting on the system, or if you choose to have someone holding your hand. It's painless and the ambiance is very inviting meant to relax you. Once you allow yourself to concour your fears and do it for the 1st time you will be blown away. It's nothing like the demonstration you will get from the person that has never experienced it. Ask someone that has had a colon cleanse and it's always posititve! Ask the opposite and you will be laughing and joking about it forever.
Colon Cleansing and the understanding of it comes with education/ the importance of it. The benefits of cleansing the body/colon specifically results in a never ending list of benefits. People all over the world suffer with digestive issues and live everyday lives like it's healthy. The subject of defecating is not shared at any given time unless it's a joke but yet s...
If so, what does that mean exactly? If not, why not?
A few days ago I came across Chris Hedges’ article in Smithsonian Magazine titled Why Mass Incarceration Defines Us As a Society. We’ve covered the need for prison reform from a variety of angles here at The Good Men Project. We’ve tried to unravel the problems through the lens of society, technology, media, race, gender, science, politics, history and religion. Yet the title of this article stood out to me and, as an American living abroad and viewing his country from the outside, something resonated. Of course, America has been and continues to be defined in myriad ways. For some we are the world’s economic powerhouse despite our debts. For others we remain the pinnacle of freedom. The melting pot. Tech innovators. Fashion and art pioneers. Science gurus. But what of the absurdities within our criminal justice system? Has the system’s ugliness been left alone to grow for so long that it can be added t...
How many of us have said, “I need to, or I need this or I need that…?”
Many individuals “set themselves up” for failure by their thoughts and emotional patterns of “wants” and “can’t” versus “choices.”
Consider the following statements:
“I need to lose weight, but I can’t”
“I need to stop smoking but I can’t
“I need to stop drinking, but I can’t”
“I need money, but I can’t”
“I need a better job, but I can’t”
“I need to end my relationship, but I can’t”
“I need to end the abuse I receive, but I can’t”
“I need to find a career, but I can’t”
“I need to go back to school, but I can’t”
“I need to change my life, but I can’t”
“I need to get out of this rut I’m in, but I can’t”
There isn’t anything wrong ex...
Tips to help prevent holiday overeating
1. Never go to the table hungry - you won't "save" calories by skipping breakfast because you are bond to eat more at the holiday meal
2. If it is served buffet style, check out whole selection before putting anything on your ate - give yourself time to "decide" what you want to eat. Stand away from the table,
3. If served "family style" start with salad and veggies than protein, leaving high fat, calorie dense food selections 2nd round of choices. Less likely to over indulge if you have already taken the edge off hunger.
4 . After you have eaten put a mint or gum in your mouth
5. Drink lots of water, always have a glass nearby
6. Avoid alcohol it adds empty calories and will disinhibit your sense of control
7. Remind yourself that the taste is momentary give yourself 5 minutes and a few deep breaths before going for 2nds or sugary desserts.
8. Remind yourself of your goal and that you are stronger than an urge.

Ever get to the end of your day and think,"that was a perfect day!" If so I'm glad you did but what made it "perfect?" Was it the weather, the company you kept? Maybe what you accomplished or maybe you had a good meal or two? Maybe a combination of all of these! One key ingredient that makes for a "perfect day" is the idea of being aware of yourself and what you do during the day. To me this means setting mini goals and sticking to (at least most of) them. It also means a certain amount of play time-exercising, family fun, going for a walk, etc. It means not worrying about the past or the future but truly being present (and enjoying if possible) the moment you are in. Now that is my idea of a perfect day.
