Relax to Help You Overcome Shyness and Anxiety

February 11, 2011

Is there a cure for shyness? Some conventional doctors would have you believe that by pumping an antidepressant pill, you can metamorphosis from a wallflower into a social butterfly.

 

Medication should never be the first or only treatment, and it is not a cure. To truly cure or social anxiety, you need to resolve will self-esteem, based the specific situations that you fear, and overcome them breathless, sweaty palmed hypersensitivity.

 

Learn how to Breathe to control your anxiety

 

The first thing to do is start learning how to breathe through your diaphragm. This kind of breathing takes place more in your stomach area than in your chest area and this is the basis of all relaxation and internal self-regulation.

 

When you’re anxious… consciously take a slow, deep, rhythmic diaphragm breaths by inhaling through your nose, drawing oxygen down into your abdomen, and holding it for a few seconds. Exhale through your mouth, mentally counting  5… 4…3…2…1  don’t push the air in and out of your body, breathe slowly and deliberately until the pace feels natural.

 

Use affirmations to take control of your situation

 

When you’re facing situations and you start to feel anxious, use the following affirmation: Tell yourself …” my anxiety symptoms are temporary, and eventually they will diminish significantly and may well disappear altogether”.

 

The sentence must become a regular part of your daily routine. Repeating it many times a day, every day, particularly in anxiety producing situations, it will help you remember that you market and are in control of your anxiety rather than your anxiety being in control you

The Symbiotic Diet and The Three Levels of Hunger

February 9, 2011
There are three levels of hunger they are:
  1. I am hungry or bored and I want to eat now
  2. Your body says “think about eating something real soon.
  3. You body says I NEED TO EAT NOW!!! I’m STARVING!
 Since being on The Symbiotic Diet I have found that there is a very real difference between hunger and starvation. Starvation is a physical state your bodies deprived of essential nutrients or calories over a long period of time. Probably no one reading this article is ever been truly starving but sometimes we think that we are starving.

Eating when you’re hungry as become a habit in our culture. We get hungry, we eat. We get hungry again, we eat again. It’s an endless cycle that has been programmed in us from when we were infants.

I’m not saying don’t eat when you’re hungry I’m saying that if you’re losing or maintaining weight it is important for you to think twice before you eat from simple hunger or from other reasons, like emotion. When you do get the urge to eat, you should choose something like a piece of fruit, a carrot, a stalk of celery or a few pieces of broccoli or cauliflower. If you don’t like those things have a handful of nuts and if you’re still hungry have more nuts. You can also eat fruit, like mangoes or bananas, cherry tomatoes, blueberries, strawberries or even an Apple. You can even have a small salad with a light dressing if you want. Believe it or not these things will fill you up because they’re high in fiber and don’t have the refined flours and sugar so you’re much more likely not to gain weight if you eat this way.

I have to tell you that I have been on the symbiotic diet pills for about a month now and they have worked phenomenally well for me. I’ve lost more than 12 pounds in 30 days. But the great thing that I like about the symbiotic diet pills is, when I eat something small I would feel totally stuffed and satisfied. I didn’t have that miserable grumpy attitude that I always seem to have when I was on other  diets or diet programs. From what I understand that good feeling comes from what the ingredients in The Symbiotic diet are doing in your brain.
