Self-Help Tip #42: Remember To Smile

 

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

These days I'm insecure about smiling, because I just got braces on my teeth (again). Which is obviously a shame because, "research has verified that smiling increases feel-good chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine in the brain, thereby reducing stress and promoting feelings of relaxation."

 

Want to smile? "An authentic smile is the product of a reflex generated by the...

Self-Help Tip #41: Go Forth and Travel

  

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Having traveled internationally since I was 3, "travel" seemed to entail taking an airplane across an ocean. BUT travel is just a "journey to a place other than the location you live" ... Meaning, it doesn't need to be a faraway adventure, and could instead be a simple "road trip, or weekend jaunt." 

So to celebrate my upcoming birthday, I decided to...

Self-Help Tip #40: Deprive Your Senses

    

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

We are all overstimulated. So from time to time, you may feel a strong desire to ESCAPE . . . Escape from your spouse, your kids, your boss, your job, your responsibilities . . . your life.

One quick way to achieve this, is through sensory deprivation - "deliberate isolation and removal of external stimuli; often conducted in a chamber.

Self-Help Tip #39: Make a Bucket List

 

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Life's demands distract from contemplating our expiration date, and what we'd like to accomplish with our remaining time. A Bucket List is "typically grandiose activities and goals that you would like to accomplish before you die."

Can you think of something(s) you'd put on your Bucket List . . . ? 

  • Something you'd like to learn?
  • Somewhere you'd like to travel?
  • Someone you'd like to meet?...

In honor of Earth Day, I'm sending this belated invitation to join the movement that "challenges consumerism by advocating for a pared-down lifestyle."

Self-Help Tip #37: Get & Give Hugs

 

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Didn't you MISS human contact during the pandemic? (Hard to hug from a 6-foot distance!)

Thankfully, holidays like Ramadan, Passover, and Easter have brought us physically closer to friends and family. This will ultimately help us keep each other healthy! (Various scientific studies claim there are many health benefits to hugging and the oxytocin it brings.)

Self-Help Tip #36: Ask For Help

 
  

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

When we're born, we're literally HELPLESS and must depend on others for survival. (Then, we're typically in a similar state at the end of our life as well!) 

  • So why do we get uncomfortable asking for help during the middle part of our life?
  • Do we somehow forget that we are indeed dependent on each other!? 

All parents know that it takes a village, and that we MUST "...

Self-Help Tip #35: Go Organic

       

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.

. . . I remember hearing that perceptive phrase in this cartoon PSA, in 1983. (Sadly, I didn't internalize its truth, and instead proceeded to treat my body like a trash compactor - eating countless BAGS of sugary cookies and processed treats.)

Self-Help Tip #34: Move Those Legs

     

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Think about how grateful you are for your LEGS that move you all day! It's no wonder celebrities like Fred Astaire insured their legs (and in the case of David Beckham - for up to $195 Million!!)

So what insurance plan do YOU have to keep your sweet legs sturdy...?

Self-Help Tip #33: Consult A Guru

      

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Whether you're seeking enlightenment, perspective, or just some decent conversation, you may be tempted to consult a Guru (derived from the Sanskrit word "venerable").

A Guru is "a person with great intelligence who usually dispenses advice[or] spiritual guidance via oral teachings in an attempt to enlighten students, aka "followers."
