Your Problems are Unicorns (they aren't real)

[I made a funny YouTube video with my bestie to illustrate this blog! Click here to watch it!]

We all have problems:

  • I have chronic health problems
  • Someone is being mean to me
  • My car is always breaking down
  • I can’t pay my bills
  • My boss is a jerk
  • I have constant pain
  • My job & coworkers are unbearable
  • No one will help me
  • No one respects me
  • Others use me or take me for granted
  • I have no energy
  • I have this incurable disease that is ruining my life

Did you know that by merely focusing on your problem you actually make it bigger? And when you make it bigger, it stays around. You remain stuck in your problem.

So I want you to start softening your thoughts about your problem. Start viewing your problems as Unicorns that aren’t real. In the world of mindset basics, you are only making your problems real by your constant attention to them.

Begin telling yourself that you can focus on something else more enjoyable (a pet, beautiful day, favorite music, kids/grandkids, nice...

The Road to Wellness [#Backwards...It's not what you think!]

The Road to Wellness is completely backwards from what I used to think it was. Yep, #Backwards.

 Here’s a fun list of what I USED to believe about health:

  • Using chemicals on your lawn is BAD

  • Getting vaccinations will HARM you
  • Using plastic will HARM you

I could go on, but I’m sure you get the picture. I USED to be AGAINST a lot of things, and I took every precaution to avoid everything “bad,” while eating as healthy as I could and exercising regularly.

And then I got sick anyway. WTH???

Now, don’t get me wrong, I did the best I could at the time. And I especially believe that eating healthy and exercising regularly helped me feel better most of the time. But when my emotional stress got the best of me, none of the other “healthy” things worked.

On my road to wellness, I’ve had...

How to Reduce or Eliminate Pain (without products) — Try these 3 things

  1. Get the message and move on

  2. Ignore/Distract (soften)

  3. Pivot and move towards a better feeling

Pain is a big industry. A lot of time and money gets dumped into searching for answers to or merely managing pain. At some point in our lives we all experience pain. We are taught to deal with pain in various ways: walk it off, take a product to help it go away, numb ourselves with food/alcohol/drugs.

But what if your pain was simply a message? And what happens when you ignore messages? They tend to get bigger, more obnoxious, more in-your-face. The more you ignore something important, the greater the chance that it snowballs out-of-control. This message is trying to get your attention. It won’t stop until you finally get the message that something is out-of-balance, something needs to change in your life.

As a mind-body doctor, I’ve had to personally confront my own messages. At first I ignored the messages, thinking they were going to be too scary. We all do this. It’s...
