Want To Improve Your Focus and Concentration? Here Are Some Tips and Tricks

If you find it challenging to finish a project, get through work tasks, study for exams, or concentrate on something, you may be looking for ways to improve focus. 

You’re in a moment when you sit at your desk with an urgent deadline and cannot focus on the task at hand. Despite your efforts, you fail to progress. But you know you need to focus and motivate yourself because your job depends on this. Nevertheless, you just can’t concentrate.

In the digital era, it’s easy to get distracted. Interesting content is everywhere, and you deal with an increasing amount of information delivered in various ways. The inability to focus is one of the maladies of our generation, and everyone wants to find out the secret to better focus. So, the tricks for improving concentration are worth addressing.

What is concentration?

In the book Will Power & Discipline, Remez Sasson defined concentration as one’s ability to direct attention to their will. Concentration is control of attention, an ability to focus your mind on one thought, object, or subject while excluding other sensations, feelings, ideas, or thoughts from your mind.

The last part is most likely quite tricky if you’re reading this article. To focus implies not paying attention or excluding unrelated sensations, feelings, ideas, or thoughts. To ignore your phone, emails, beeps, or colleague who is eating ice cream at their desk.

Your daily routine is dominated by switching in and out of digital devices. You get a constant flux of emails, messages, and notifications from apps critical to your job. You are constantly searching for information to solve daily issues or complete tasks.

But all these distractions affect your concentration and productivity, and it takes you longer than it should to complete a task. You don’t listen to what other people have to say, don’t comprehend things, and misunderstand or misinterpret information. Your lack of concentration also affects your memory, and you often forget things or fail to recall information.

Factors affecting your concentration

Some days you feel like your focus is under attack from all sides. External and internal factors affect your concentration, and you need to identify them in order to improve your focus.

Here are the main factors that stop you from zooming in on the task in front of you.

Distractions. Enormous amounts of information daily bombard you while you work. Researchers found out that the human brain is so primed for distractions that only hearing the phone’s beep impairs your ability to focus. You need to constantly decide if the information you receive is useful, meaningless, or sufficient. The constant flow of information muddles your assessment of whether you need it to decide or complete a task.

Insufficient sleep. Science suggests that lack of sleep can lower your alertness, reduce concentration, and slow thought processes. When you’re sleep-deprived, you feel confused and find it more challenging to focus. Therefore, your ability to meet deadlines is seriously affected. Insomnia can affect your concentration and memory.

Eating habits. What you eat impacts how you feel and how sharp your mind is. If you don’t fuel your brain with the proper nutrients, you can experience fatigue, memory loss, and lack of focus. A restrictive or low-fat diet negatively affects concentration because it triggers cravings and hunger and leaves you feeling unwell.

Environment. Depending on your activities, the environment can impact your concentration; a loud noise level can prove problematic because you may need quietness to focus. It’s not only the overall noise level but also the kind of noise that affects your focus. While co-workers chatting may derail your focus, a favourite song can keep your mind focused.

Steps to take to improve concentration

Vary your diet

What you eat affects your cognitive functions, such as memory and concentration. Stay away from processed foods and take supplements like trace minerals to boost concentration. Staying hydrated also positively impacts your focus because even mild dehydration can make it challenging to remember information.

Improve sleep

When you’re tired, your reflex slows down and affects your daily tasks. Therefore, it’s essential to get as close to the recommended amount of sleep nightly. Experts state that adults should aim for 7 or 8 hours of sleep each night.

How can you improve your sleep?

  • Put all screens aways an hour before bed
  • Lower the temperature in the bedroom
  • Have a warm bath
  • Go to bed and wake up around the same time

Exercise

Regular exercise increases concentration because physical activity benefits everyone. Research suggests that adults who engage in moderate physical activity can stop or reverse memory loss associated with brain atrophy.

Final words

Experts still debate what tricks function best in improving concentration. We hope that now you can identify the factors that impact your focus and strategies that can help you enhance your engagement.




Hypnotic Healing and the Mysterious Relationship Between Mind and Body

Steve Taylor, Ph. D. | Waking Times

In the 1840s, a Scottish doctor living in India named James Esdaile was frequently visited by men with enormous tumors (weighing up to 45 kg) in the scrotum, caused by mosquito bites. The operation to remove them was so painful that men would often put it off for years, only having it as a last resort.

Esdaile had read about hypnotism (or mesmerism, as he referred to it) and decided to try the technique as a way of relaxing patients so that they would agree to have the operation.

To his surprise, he found that not only did the patients feel relaxed, but they also didn’t feel any pain during the operations. In other words, hypnosis had somehow acted as a powerful anesthetic. Esdaile reported that, in some cases, there was no pain or injury after the operation either, and that the healing process was faster. As he wrote, “less constitutional disturbance has followed than under ordinary circumstances. There has not been a death among the cases operated on.”

Word began to spread about this amazing surgeon who could remove the massive tumors in 20 minutes without pain or after effects, and soon patients began to flock to Esdaile’s hospital near Calcutta. Esdaile began to use hypnotism in other procedures too, including eye surgery, the removal of tonsils, breast tumors, and childbirth. Esdaile was sure that it wasn’t a matter of his patients pretending (to themselves and/or to him) that they weren’t feeling any pain — he noted that, in addition to a lack of writhing and moaning, patients didn’t display physiological signs of pain such as changes to pulse rate and eye pupils.

At the time Esdaile was practicing, mortality rates for operations were massive: a staggering 50% of patients died during or after them. But in 161 recorded cases of Esdaile’s operations, the mortality rate was only 5%. The reasons for this aren’t clear. Esdaile himself believed it was due to “vital mesmeric fluids” passing from him to the patient, which stimulated the healing process. However, it was probably related to reduced loss of blood, and perhaps activation of the same self-healing abilities that occur with a placebo.

The Hypnotic State

The hypnotic state is still mysterious — there is no clear explanation of what happens when a person becomes hypnotized, or how the state is different from normal consciousness. But the essential aspect seems to be that, under hypnosis, the normal conscious self becomes immobilized. Normal conscious functions such as volition and control are taken over by the hypnotist. And with the conscious self in abeyance, the hypnotist appears to have direct access to the person’s subconscious mind.

Certainly, one of the most striking aspects of hypnosis is the powerful influence of the mind (via the hypnotist’s suggestions) over the functioning of the body.  Esdaile was by no means the only physician to use hypnosis, but from the mid-nineteenth century, the practice was superseded by the use of chemical anesthetics. But there were still some areas of medicine where the practice continued — dentistry, in particular. At the turn of the 20th century, hypnosis was dentists’ main method of pain management, and it became almost universal for dentists during the First and Second World Wars when chemical anesthetics were scarce and facial trauma was common. Even now, some dentists still use hypnosis, especially in cases where a person’s medical history precludes the use of an anesthetic.

Recent research with patients who had teeth extracted under hypnosis showed that “hypnotic-focused analgesia” can increase pain thresholds by up to 220%. (1) This research also found that 93% of patients experienced reduced postoperative pain and hemorrhage. (This links to Esdaile’s finding that mortality rates decreased very sharply as a result of his use of hypnosis. Hypnosis can reduce blood loss and hemorrhage.)

Beyond its analgesic properties, there is a great deal of evidence that hypnotism can have a powerful healing effect. During the early to mid-nineteenth century, the technique was used by physicians as a treatment and found to be effective against conditions such as epilepsy, neuralgia, and rheumatism. However, hypnosis appears to be particularly effective with skin conditions. In highly suggestible people, hypnosis has been used to rapidly heal wounds and burns, to make warts and blisters disappear, and to control the bleeding of hemophiliacs. Conversely, highly suggestible people may produce blisters or burn marks, if they are told by a hypnotist that their skin has been burnt, or if they are blindfolded and the hypnotist pretends to touch them with a red hot poker or another object.

See It, Then Be It: The Power of Mindful Visualization

Can You Use Visualization To Help You Get Women?Being 34 weeks pregnant, I’ve been reading as many books as I can on how to stay calm and focused during natural childbirth (which is the plan). What I keep seeing as a common topic amongst every book I pick up is how powerful using visualization techniques can be to literally write the script of your experience.

In other words, we can empower ourselves to trust that our bodies know exactly what to do. And when needed, we can connect and communicate with our baby to focus on cooperative energy as you both work as a team to bring forth life into the world.

“Back in the day” women viewed childbirth in a completely different way from how we currently do in modern times. It was not common to fear the process nor to focus on the pain or the avoidance of said pain. Instead, women were taught what it genuinely is…a natural biological process that our bodies were designed to perform and that there is nothing to fear when you surrender to the process itself.

The understanding of how the energy and emotions brought to the experience can tip the scale one way or another will make all the difference in how painful or joyous the experience will be. And this is where using visualizations can be the perfect tool to guide you through your delivery.

Well-known amongst athletes, martial artists, and those who meditate regularly, visualizations are a valuable tool used to perfect their craft. The simple act of taking your own thoughts through how you want the experience to play out (on a regular basis) literally rewires the brain to be better prepared and to not react in fear when you finally do go through the real experience.

It’s a way to desensitize your brain’s reaction to the experience itself. When the body is fearful, it creates adrenaline and cortisol which increase stress as well as pain. It’s almost like the brain fighting the natural process. As with all spiritual practice, we must remind the mind and the ego that they are not the boss. We, as pure consciousness, run the show, and perhaps we needed to be reminded of that as well.

The technique I’m using for myself is custom-made and honestly, that’s how it should be for us all. We all know what we want and we all have the right to put energy into manifesting exactly that. The closer I get to my delivery date, the more I realize that I can either surrender to the what-if’s and fear the unknown, or realize that I have much more say in how my delivery turns out.

I picture myself in the birthing pool, breathing calmly, and focusing on the mandalas that I created and blessed with personal sigils. There are 3 of them and each is attuned to specific energy I channeled into their intricate designs and vivid colors. The first is PEACE/BREATH, the second is POWER/FOCUS, and the third is PUSH/STRENGTH for each stage of labor and delivery.

My vision is pulling from all of the senses and I can smell the lavender oils in the background while the soothing sounds of Bob Marley take me away while bringing me present to the moment. More connected, more aware, and more prepared to ride the waves of my coming labor.

I’ve only been using this visualization for about 2 weeks now, but I can already feel a shift my uncertainty and need to control everything. I am more at peace with the fact that I may end up having to deliver at the hospital and only getting to labor in the tub rather than give birth. But I am equally balanced in focusing on and drawing my reality the vision I have for my perfect day. Which of course, leaves room for imperfections and provides openness to unexpected change. Norman Vincent Peale Quote: “Affirm it, visualize it, believe it ...

Again, this technique can be used for several purposes, from learning to slow a chattering mind that won’t let you sleep, to becoming a better shot at basketball. When we can proactively take ourselves through the experience, we give our brains the preview of what to expect. Our brains do not know the difference in the reality of our thoughts and as long as we believe something to be true, the brain will as well.

This is such an empowering lesson, at least it was for me. It reminds us that we are not slaves to our emotions, but rather we can learn to work with them and not allow them to force our bodies into a panic when consciously we want peace. When we can remove the fear and act on courage and trust, we give ourselves an almost as great of a gift as motherhood. And that is the ability to connect with this life-changing experience in a way that is all our own…lead by love and grace.

Making Your Life Stress-Free: Tips To Stay Relaxed!

According to the American Institute of stress, about 70% of adults experience stress that affects their physical and mental health. Moreover, around 40% of adults worldwide experienced elevated stress levels in 2020, making it the most stressful year.

Whether you experience a minor challenge or a major crisis, stress always tags along. Every person gets their fair share of stress triggers, so it’s pretty hard not to get overwhelmed now and then. While you can’t always control these triggers or stressors, you can control how you respond to them. Some people get anxious, others get aggressive, and many get worked up to the extent that they get physically ill. Instead of giving in to stress, learn to find ways to keep its side effects at bay.

So, when you feel your stress becomes overwhelming or makes you feel frustrated or irritable, you can always resort to some stress-relieving habits. Listed below are some tips that can help tame stress and restore peace and balance to your tipsy turvy life.

Try Energy-therapy

When you experience a trauma or a setback, your emotions get displaced. To curb this emotional damage, people start using self-made coping mechanisms which may suppress emotions related to trauma. This suppression of negative emotions disturbs the human energy field. It manifests later in the form of behavioral problems, physiological conditions, or psychological disorders. If you tried to get rid of your emotional baggage on your own but failed, it is time to reach out for professional aid. If you aren’t sure about visiting a therapist yet, you can purchase books online, such as the emotion code. These books provide information on effective and transformative energy healing methods. Professionals design these books to provide an outlet for trapped energy related to past emotions. They help ease emotional wounds, alleviate physical discomfort, and restore relationships.

Eat a healthy diet

Foods can help tame stress in many ways. For example, comfort foods like a bowl of warm oatmeal increase serotonin levels. This brain chemical soothes and calms our brain. Fruits like oranges and leafy green vegetables rich in magnesium also help curb stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, reducing stress. Some people practice emotional eating, which involves binge eating to soothe themselves and their negative feelings. They fill their emotional void through this temporary aid without realizing that it only adds to their chronic stress. Eating healthy foods can help you counter stress over the long haul since your body will get detoxified, and your brain will function properly.

Take a break

In this day and age, when people are busy making ends meet, trying to live up to the expectations of their family, and meeting deadlines at work, they forget to take a break. Give a pause to your robotic life and relax. As a goal-oriented person, it might be difficult for you to plan on some actual downtime. But you will eventually look forward to these moments. The most relaxing things you can do are meditation, yoga, prayer, listening to some soothing music, or spending time amongst nature. Go on a short vacation even! Meditation is popular for stress management and is beneficial in relaxing the body, mind, and soul.

Exercise daily

Frequent workouts are an effective way to help relieve mental stress. Exercise helps reduce the level of the stress hormone cortisol and pumps up the release of endorphin. Endorphins can improve your mood instantly, and they also act as natural painkillers. Exercising can also treat your insomnia and enhance the quality of sleep. But a consistent exercising routine is necessary for it to pay off. So, take a stroll around the office as downtime from a frustrating task. Walking is one of the simplest ways to rejuvenate your mind and body.  You can also try breathing exercises to de-stress yourself.

Connect and socialize

Your friends and family are the most reliable source of emotional support. When you feel stressed, you might want to isolate yourself. Talk to a friend or family member rather than piling up your emotions to the extent that you feel suffocated. Talking about your worries to a confidant can help in emotional catharsis. Spending time with family or being part of a healthy social network is therapy in itself and can boost your self-esteem. This will ultimately help you sort out issues and navigate the rough patches of your life. In case you have no one to talk to, seek professional aid from a therapist.

Try Guided imagery

Guided imagery is an effective stress management technique that you can use just about anywhere to relax and calm yourself. It is like taking a short cost-free vacation in your mind that is simple and pleasant to practice. All you need to do is imagine yourself being in your happy place. For example, picture yourself sitting on a beach, feeling the refreshing breeze, and listening to the crashing waves. Relaxing, right? So, when you start to feel stressed due to work overload or feel anxious due to an exam, close your eyes and slip away to your nirvana.

Pen down your thoughts

Writing down your thoughts and feelings can be a source of therapy that aids in relieving stress. Journal writing provides an outlet for your otherwise pent-up emotions. Don’t think about what to write or spelling and grammar mistakes; just let your thoughts slip on paper.

Engage in leisure activities

People these days are too busy to engage in leisure activities. While juggling work, family, and other responsibilities, they often forget to make time for themselves. However, leisure activities can help relieve stress. When you feel good, you will eventually perform better. Try to figure out what you like and make time for it. Gardening, painting, or cooking are a few activities you can engage in. You can even pet an animal. Interaction with pets boosts mood and reduces stress through oxytocin release.

Try a laughter workout

Last but not least, try to laugh more throughout the day. A laugh may not cure all illnesses, but it is the best medicine to help you feel better when things look tough. Laughter boosts mood, gives you a lighter feeling, helps surmount problems, and improves physical and mental health. So, next time when you feel stressed, listen to a few jokes or tell some, watch a standup comedy video, hang out with humorous people, or even force a fake laugh.

Conclusion

Life is full of challenges and setbacks. When you feel helpless in coping with specific demands related to work, family, financial pressures, etc., that is where stress comes in. Stressors are temporary, but the stress that stems from them may become chronic if not managed timely. Chronic stress can take a tremendous toll on your well-being, making you debilitated to work and tackle demanding challenges. This article mentions a few effective tips to help cope and reduce stress without investing too much time.




What is All This Shift Sh*t About Anyway?

Related imageWhen I was a teenager, there was nothing I loved to do more than to hop in my Jeep and go drive the back roads of Pennsylvania. I loved it so much in fact that I have more memories of my Jeep being brown than black due to it constantly being covered in mud.

My love for nature and the freedom of the open road has never left me, and as strange as it might sound, the recent eclipse has stirred up some deep-rooted memories of what freedom, creation, and expression really mean…at least to me on a personal level. On a VERY personal level in fact.

My dreams lately have been so incredibly vivid and where I normally wouldn’t remember things, the finest and apparently most significant details are there with me, even on throughout the day. I feel as if, no matter what, there is something refusing to let me let go of this information I am supposed to have at this time in my life. I FEEL it in every inch of my being. And I imagine this is what it feels like to truly trust your own intuition for the very first time and to literally surrender to it completely.

My usual M.O. is to get continuous downloads and know I’m getting some juicy and quite useful stuff I can be aptly applying to my own life, and so I journal the shit out of it with the full intention to do just that. But then something happens…or rather does not, and often times I just end up sitting on these gems after some justification that I’m waiting to throw them in a future book I’m “going to write” or saving it as “program material” for clients I don’t even have within my circle yet.

Do you see the issue here? While it’s great to have plans, goals and a pool of resources to contribute to as well as draw from, we need to also realize that when we are always living from a space of becoming, that we never actually get there…we never actually become what we want because we do not ever let go of that space of “still getting there-ness”. We, of course, need to do the work and the healing, however, we cannot expect there to be this glorious moment of revelation that tells us it’s time to take the next step. It is US who decides when we are ready; no one else.

And so this brings me to what everyone in the spiritual community is calling The Shift or perhaps more commonly, “The Great Awakening”. From an un-awakened, individual perspective, the world looks like complete chaos and a world impervious to compassion or positive change. That is only a perspective of what the outer reality is offering; one possibility and it’s not looking good. And when we focus on the changes occurring on such a granular level, we make it quite difficult to not only connect with others to be able to offer and receive information but to even clearly see into their world at all. And this leaves it even harder to see any other perspective. This reminds me of the difference between “being awake” and someone who is “woke”.

Imagine having a can of paint dumped onto your windshield of your car and trying to see inside; yeah it’s kinda like that. You see, we are all the world unto ourselves, each a unique dimension of Source expression that has merely tricked itself into temporarily believing that it is separate and fragmented, and therefore we experience that on a level of humanity as a deep sense of unworthiness, confusion and need to love and be loved. So, in essence, that is the illusion we are here to overcome, not that EVERYTHING is an illusion. If everything was an illusion, then there would be no Source, and since we know everything comes from Source, then everything is definitely not an illusion. The only true illusion is that we must hold onto the ideas of reality that we are presented with from outside sources that do not resonate our own Truth.

All I hear throughout the New Age community so often is so many “should’s” that insist we must always be for or against something, or must in in a battle with something. I admit to being overwhelmingly lost in the need to have every last book and attend every last festival and try to meet every last spiritual mentor, and honestly there’s nothing wrong with that, but when you lose who you are, in the attempt to find who you are, well that kind of defeats the entire purpose.

Anything that doesn’t feel good is an indicator that you are living within time. To some that may instantly confuse, to other, it may instantly resonate. I won’t get too deep into it, but all things happen simultaneously and like an old picture show there is only the moment of now and life simply is all these “nows” spliced together to appear as happening in a linear progression. But now you know better…I hope. And I also hope you pay more attention to how you seem to “lose” track of time when you’re having fun or in a good mood AKA high vibration. It is literally because good feelings; positive emotions take you OUT of time. I can and will write a whole other article on what you can do with that another time…

So, back to the Shift and how to so many all over the world see chaos when some see order. How is this possible when we are all in the same world? It’s because again, we are not. We are all our OWN worlds, and we decide what we. When you respond to another’s opinion or perspective you are merely interacting with their world, not your own. And this is such a useful tool in helping you work out conflicts and karma in your current relationships and ancestral lineage.

For so long we have been living in the energy of the Mind and to me “The Shift” simply represents humanity moving into the energy of the Heart, so that we are best prepared to integrate it all in the Solar Plexus or our Seat of Intuition. But honestly, I feel that the entire point of this energetic upgrade is for people to recognize their own power and reclaim it so you are reminded that there is no higher source of truth that your higher Self; therefore it’s pushing YOU to decide for yourselves what this sh*t is all about! 🙂

Five Ways Mindfulness Meditation Is Good for Your Health

Research suggests that mindfulness benefits our bodies, not just our minds.

By Jill Suttie | Greater Good Magazine

According to thousands of years of tradition, Buddhists meditate to understand themselves and their connections to all beings. By doing so, they hope to be released from suffering and ultimately gain enlightenment.

In recent decades, researchers have been gaining insight into the benefits of practicing this ancient tradition. By studying more secular versions of mindfulness meditation, they’ve found that learning to pay attention to our current experiences and accept them without judgment might indeed help us to be happier. Studies to date suggest that mindfulness affects many aspects of our psychological well-being—improving our moodincreasing positive emotions, and decreasing our anxietyemotional reactivity, and job burnout.

But does mindfulness affect our bodies as well as our minds?

Recently, researchers have been exploring this question—with some surprising results. While much of the early research on mindfulness relied on pilot studies with biased measures or limited groups of participants, more recent studies have been using less-biased physiological markers and randomly controlled experiments to get at the answer. Taken together, the studies suggest that mindfulness may impact our hearts, brains, immune systems, and more.

Though nothing suggests mindfulness is a standalone treatment for disease nor the most important ingredient for a healthy life, here are some of the ways that it appears to benefit us physically.

Mindfulness is good for our hearts

Heart disease is the leading killer in the United States, accounting for about 1 in 4 deaths every year. So, whatever decreases the risks or symptoms of heart disease would significantly impact society’s health. Mindfulness may help with that.

In one study, people with pre-hypertension were randomly assigned to augment their drug treatment with either a course in mindfulness meditation or a program that taught progressive muscle relaxation. Those who learned mindfulness had significantly greater reductions in their systolic and diastolic blood pressure than those who learned progressive muscle relaxation, suggesting that mindfulness could help people at risk for heart disease by bringing blood pressure down.

In another study, people with heart disease were randomly assigned to either an online program to help them practice meditation or to a waitlist for the program while undergoing normal treatment for heart disease. Those who took the mindfulness program showed significant improvements on the six-minute walking test (a measure of cardiovascular capacity) and slower heart rates than those in the waitlist group.

While one review of randomly controlled studies showed that mindfulness may have mixed effects on the physical symptoms of heart disease, a more recent review published by the American Heart Association concluded that, while research remains preliminary, there is enough evidence to suggest mindfulness as an adjunct treatment for coronary disease and its prevention.

Mindfulness may also be good for hearts that are already relatively healthy. Research suggests that meditating can increase respiratory sinus arrhythmia, the natural variations in heart rate that happen when we breathe that indicate better heart health and an increased chance of surviving a heart attack.

Mindfulness may decrease cognitive decline from aging or Alzheimer’s

People tend to lose some of their cognitive flexibility and short-term memory as they age. But mindfulness may be able to slow cognitive decline, even in people with Alzheimer’s disease.

In a 2016 study, people with Alzheimer’s disease engaged in either mindfulness meditation, cognitive stimulation therapy, relaxation training, or no treatment, and were given cognitive tests over two years. While cognitive stimulation and relaxation training seemed to be somewhat beneficial in comparison to no treatment, the mindfulness training group had much more robust improvements on cognitive scores than any other group.

MINDFUL BREATHING – TRY IT NOW (HERE)

Why might that be true? A 2017 study looking at brain function in healthy, older adults suggests meditation may increase attention. In this study, people 55 to 75 years old spent eight weeks practicing either focused breathing meditation or a control activity. Then, they were given the Stroop test—a test that measures attention and emotional control—while having their brains monitored by electroencephalography. Those undergoing breath training had significantly better attention on the Stroop test and more activation in an area of the brain associated with attention than those in the active control group.

While this research is preliminary, a systematic review of research to date suggests that mindfulness may mitigate cognitive decline, perhaps due to its effects on memory, attention, processing, and executive functioning.

Mindfulness may improve your immune response

When we encounter viruses and other disease-causing organisms, our bodies send out troops of immune cells that circulate in the blood. These cells, including pro- and anti-inflammatory proteins, neutrophils, T-cells, immunoglobulins, and natural killer cells, help us to fight disease and infection in various ways. Mindfulness, it turns out, may affect these disease-fighting cells.

In several studies, mindfulness meditation appeared to increase levels of T-cells or T-cell activity in patients with HIV or breast cancer. This suggests that mindfulness could play a role in fighting cancer and other diseases that call upon immune cells. Indeed, in people suffering from cancer, mindfulness appears to improve a variety of biomarkers that might indicate progression of the disease.

In another study, elderly participants were randomly assigned to an eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course or a moderate-intensity exercise program. At the end, participants who’d practiced mindfulness had higher levels of the protein interleukin-8 in their nasal secretions, suggesting improved immune function.

Another study found increases in interleukin-10 in colitis patients who took a mindfulness meditation course compared to a mind-body educational program, especially among patients whose colitis had flared up. Yet another study found that patients who had greater increases in mindfulness after an MBSR course also showed faster wound healing, a process regulated by the immune system.

Studies have found effects on markers of inflammation, too—like C-reactive protein, which in higher levels can harm physical health. Research shows that people with rheumatoid arthritis have reduced C-reactive protein levels after taking an MBSR course versus being on a waitlist for the course. Overall, these findings suggest that mindfulness meditation can have disease-fighting powers through our immune response.

Mindfulness may reduce cell aging

Cell aging occurs naturally as cells repeatedly divide over the lifespan and can also be increased by disease or stress. Proteins called telomeres, which are found at the end of chromosomes and serve to protect them from aging, seem to be impacted by mindfulness meditation.

Studies suggest that long-time meditators may have greater telomere lengths. In one experimental study, researchers found that breast cancer survivors who went through MBSR preserved the length of their telomeres better than those who were on a waitlist. However, this study also found that general supportive therapies impacted telomere length; so, there may not be something special about MBSR that impacts cell aging.

On the other hand, another study with breast cancer survivors found no differences in telomere length after taking an MBSR course; but they did find differences in telomere activity, which is also related to cell aging. In fact, a 2018 review of research ties mindfulness training to increased telomere activity, suggesting it indirectly affects the integrity of the telomeres in our cells. Perhaps that’s why scientists are at least optimistic about the positive effects of meditation on aging.

Mindfulness may help reduce psychological pain

Of course, while the above physiological benefits of mindfulness are compelling, we needn’t forget that mindfulness also impacts our psychological well-being, which, in turn, affects physical health. In fact, it’s quite likely that these changes have synergistic effects on one another.

First of all, a great deal of research suggests that mindfulness can help healthy people reduce their stress. And thanks to Jon-Kabat Zinn’s pioneering MBSR program, there’s now a large body of research showing that mindfulness can help people cope with the painanxietydepression, and stress that might accompany illness, especially chronic conditions.

For example, drug addictions, at heart, come about because of physiological cravings for a substance that relieves people temporarily from their psychological suffering. Mindfulness can be a useful adjunct to addiction treatment by helping people better understand and tolerate their cravings, potentially helping them to avoid relapse after they’ve been safely weaned off of drugs or alcohol. The same is true for people struggling with overeating.

Fascinating though it is, we shouldn’t overplay meditation’s effects on physical health at the expense of its importance to emotional health. In fact, it may be difficult to separate out the two, as a key impact of mindfulness is stress reduction, and psychological stress has been tied to heart healthimmune response, and telomere length. This idea is further supported by the fact that other stress-reducing therapies also seem to impact physical health, as well.

Still, it’s encouraging to know that something that can be taught and practiced can have an impact on our overall health—not just mental but also physical—more than 2,000 years after it was developed. That’s reason enough to give mindfulness meditation a try.

Mindfulness Meditation May Decrease Impact of Migraine

Migraine is a neurological disease that can be severely debilitating and is the second leading cause of disability worldwide. Unfortunately, many patients with migraine discontinue medications due to ineffectiveness or side effects. Many patients still use opioids despite recommendations against them for headache treatment. However, in a recent clinical trial from Wake Forest Baptist Health, researchers showed that mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) may provide benefit to people with migraines.

“Mindfulness-based stress reduction is a mind-body treatment that teaches moment-by-moment awareness through mindfulness meditation and yoga,” said Rebecca Erwin Wells, M.D., M.P.H., associate professor of neurology at Wake Forest School of Medicine, part of Wake Forest Baptist Health. “Mindfulness can also teach new ways to respond to stress, a commonly reported migraine trigger.”

According to an article published by JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers studied whether MBSR improved migraine outcomes, pain perception, and measures of emotional well-being compared to headache education.

In the study, 89 adults with a history of migraine were randomly assigned to either the MBSR group or headache education group with training or instruction delivered in eight weekly two-hour sessions.

The MBSR group followed a standardized curriculum of mindfulness meditation and yoga. Participants also received electronic audio files for home practice and were encouraged to practice at home 30 minutes a day. The headache education group received instruction on headaches, pathophysiology, triggers, stress, and treatment approaches.

Participants in both the MBSR and headache education groups reported fewer days with migraines. However, only MBSR also lessened disability and improved quality of life, depression scores, and other measures reflecting emotional well-being, with effects seen out to 36 weeks. Further, experimentally induced pain intensity and unpleasantness decreased in the MBSR group compared to the headache education group, suggesting a shift in pain appraisal.

“At a time when opioids are still being used for migraine, finding safe non-drug options with long-term benefit has significant implications,” said Wells, who is also the founder and director of the Comprehensive Headache Program at Wake Forest Baptist. “Mindfulness may treat the total burden of migraine and could potentially decrease the impact of this debilitating condition. A larger, more definitive study is needed to confirm these findings.”

COVID Vaccine: What We Don’t Know

By ANH-USA | Alliance for Natural Health

An FDA committee is meeting next week to review the first COVID vaccine. We must demand that full transparency is given to the American public. Action Alert!

Pfizer has applied for emergency use authorization (EUA) for its COVID-19 vaccine, and an FDA advisory committee will meet in an open session on December 10 to review Pfizer’s data; Moderna recently announced that it, too, has filed for an EUA. We’re being told by the manufacturers that both of these vaccines have above 90% efficacy and serious adverse events are low. That’s all well and good, but we cannot rely on the word of vaccine makers that their products are safe. We need the data, and so far, we are not even close to getting it. This is completely unacceptable.

The chart below shows that BioNTech/Pfizer and Moderna have fallen pitifully short of demonstrating the full transparency that we and ANH-International have been calling for. Out of ten areas, full transparency has been provided in zero categories. In 6 of 10 categories, none or very little of the data is in the public domain.

We should not even think about receiving a COVID vaccine, nor should the FDA grant an EUA to a COVID vaccine, until these companies show us their cards and let all of their data be independently analyzed. Only then can we know the true risk/benefit of these vaccines and be able to make informed choices, for ourselves and our families.

How to Get Healthy and Stay that Way

Getting healthy or staying healthy is a bit more than mind over matter, but what you believe affects the matter of your body.  This takes place on a subconscious level (below your awareness), because this is where the automatic functions of your body and habits occur. There is no emotion involved in the subconscious, there is only function that forms.  Get this:  Function that informs the body how to live, to heal, to stay in balance.

Basically your body strives to stay in balance (homeostasis). Here is a very simple process of how the balance of your body can be upset.

  1. Something occurs to upset this balance:  physical or mental toxins trigger your body to respond to these invaders.  
  2. Two communication centers called nervous systems go into alert.  The central nervous system and the intestinal nervous system (gut). 
  3. Inflammation is a beginning responder to ‘things going wrong, the balance is upset, we must get things under control’.  
  4. If the inflammatory response system is ineffective, then other factors are also triggered. One is the manufacture of cholesterol, which is a hormone that builds tissue and repairs when violations occur.  Super low density cholesterol are microscopic portions that can lodge in the blood vessels and become hardened.  This can only by seen by magnetic resonance, not a standard blood test.  As the vessels become more narrow, then the bloods ability to move freely is compromised and much-needed oxygen and nutrition is restricted.
  5. Eating food containing cholesterol does not create cholesterol.  This is extremely important to understand!  Artificial products and excess sugar are large offenders to the body.  They attack the body as toxins and the body responds by getting irritated as it tries to get back to a peaceful state.  This all occurs behind the scenes and the results are most often not registered until years later.  Mental toxins as excess worry, uncontrolled stress also play havoc to the body stimulating an inflammatory response.

Many illnesses are more than a genetic cause and are now called ‘lifestyle diseases’.  Using genetics as a reason for this type of illness is a huge “doom factor”.  It’s almost like playing Russian Roulette. Why?  Because this belief disempowers and makes you feel that you have no control. Thus, you are a victim.  Fear is a huge player and this mental toxin can lead to compromised health.

A better way to look at illness or pain is to understand that it is a messenger. So a key to healing is to understand the message. This is why meditation, mindfulness and faith are powerful tools and allies in the healing process. These allies affect the subconscious, which is a major player determining your state of being and your physical health.

Can you heal from chronic, debilitating diseases?  It depends, what do you really believe?  It is a bit more than mind over matter, because your subconscious must know it’s reality. Just making a statement, I believe, is only the beginning. It must be truth, in the core of your being, beyond your awareness.  A higher state of consciousness will take you to places of sweet dreams where good health abounds and each morning is something to look forward to.  Read my other articles and those like it on Conscious Life News to learn how to train your subconscious.  Be healthy, be happy and live well my friend.

How Smiling Can Improve Your Wellbeing

Smiling is a natural and often unconscious response when we are amused, joyful, or contented, although we can also smile by choice, even when we are not feeling positive. When we feel down, we don’t really feel like smiling, but there are several reasons why you should try to smile as often as you can. In fact, smiling has been found to have a tangible impact on our wellbeing, whether we are feeling happy or not. If you are not convinced, this article will explain how smiling has a positive impact on our wellbeing, including both our physical and mental health.

Smiling makes us more attractive to others

People who smile are magnetic, and there have been scientific studies that show we are more attracted to smiles and less attracted to frowns, grimaces, or scowls. By placing a smile on your face, you are more likely to attract positivity and social experiences (whether you are looking for friends or a romantic partner). If you are self-conscious about smiling because you feel your teeth are unattractive, consider fixing your smile with professional dental work.

Smiling can alleviate stress

When we are feeling stressed and run down, it shows on our faces, and this can have a contagious effect on the people around you. Smiling can not only prevent others from picking up on your stress, but can even reduce the symptoms of stress by elevating our mood. Smiling can trigger the release of neurotransmitters such as endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin, which act as natural anti-depressants and painkillers. In addition, as smiling is often contagious, you may have a positive impact on the people around you, therefore improving the social atmosphere around you.

Smiling can boost your immune system

When we are stressed or tired, our immune system is compromised as it enters “fight or flight” mode. Because smiling encourages the release of mood-boosting neurotransmitters, the body becomes more relaxed and able to function, therefore dealing with minor illnesses and injuries much more effectively.

Smiling can ease high blood pressure

Smiling lowers blood pressure, and you do not need to read a scientific study to see this for yourself. If you have a blood pressure cuff in your home, take a reading when you are not smiling and then another after a minute of two of smiling to see the impact that it can have.

Smiling can make you appear younger

In addition to making us more attractive, smiling can also make us look younger and healthier. It lifts the facial muscles and smooths out lines and wrinkles in seconds, making us appear more energetic and vibrant.

Smiling projects an impression of confidence and success

A person who is smiling is more likely to be perceived as a confident person, and confident people are usually more likely to be noticed, promoted at work, and approached by others. When you have a job interview or a professional meeting, smiling more will make you appear more successful, which is often half the battle when trying to progress your career.




Big Pharma Achieves Total Legal Immunity for Coronavirus Vaccines; Even as Vaccine Injections May be FORCED onto Billions of People | Health Ranger

By Mike Adams | Health Ranger

We have now arrived at the ultimate moneymaking scam for Big Pharma, a corrupt, criminal industry that’s going to great lengths to pressure Big Tech to censor all speech that doesn’t earn them more profits. Now, vaccine manufacturers like AstraZeneca are openly bragging about how they’ve achieved absolute legal immunity from all side effects caused by coronavirus vaccines, even as “Dr. Evil” Fauci and other pawns of the vaccine industry are pushing for mandatory vaccine injections for billions of people.

You have no right to say no, in other words, but you also have no right to sue if their product turns out to be faulty and causes injury or harm.

This is now the status quo of the lawless, anti-human vaccine industry and all its corrupt collaborators such as Big Tech, Big Media, medical schools and complicit medical journals.

“AstraZeneca has been granted protection from future product liability claims related to its COVID-19 vaccine hopeful by most of the countries with which it has struck supply agreements,” reports Reuters. “The United States… already has a law to exclude tort claims from products that help control a public-health crises in the form of the 2005 Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness, or PREP Act.”

The vaccine will be forced upon you, in other words, regardless of its safety status. Long-term trials are being completely skipped. Animals trials have been largely abandoned. And Moderna, the most prominent vaccine manufacturer on the covid-19 scene, has publicly admitted that 100% of clinical trial subjects experienced negative side effects in the high dose group, during the second round of injections.

Bill Gates is now publicly stating that “multiple doses” of coronavirus vaccines will need to be forced on people around the world, yet we already see that even during the second dose — not the mention third or fourth doses — side effects hit every single person, indicating they get cumulatively worse with an incremental number of doses.

Greed-driven vaccine manufacturers have no incentive to make coronavirus vaccines safe

The utter lack of financial liability means that vaccine manufacturers have no incentive to follow quality control measures. Since they can’t be sued when their faulty vaccine products cause injury or death, there’s no incentive to make their vaccines safe during manufacturing. Instead, the priority is to rush everything into production as quickly as possible in order to maximize profits and be among the first to market.

Adding to the conspiracy, tech giants like Google, Facebook and Twitter will of course censor all reports of vaccine injuries, making it nearly impossible for anyone to lodge an honest online complaint about vaccine safety.

Here’s how that will work: The CDC will declare the faulty, dangerous vaccines to be “safe,” then anyone who questions that will be censored by the tech giants for “not following CDC guidelines” or some similar excuse.

Thus, companies like Moderna, Pfizer, Astrazeneca or Bayer could produce flat-out lethal vaccines that kill millions of people, and there is no mechanism in society by which any whistleblower could raise the alarm or bring one of the vaccine manufacturers to court.

Due process has just been obliterated. You have no right to any trial. You have no right to say no. You must comply or lose your job, and you might in fact be denied access to public transportation or even public shopping spaces.

You are now living in a medical police state, run by Big Pharma tyrants and junk science quacks who pretend to be the high priests of “truth.” All those who oppose them will be silenced, and you will be injected against your will with a toxic cocktail of experimental medicine that might just kill you. If you complain, you will be de-platformed. If you sue, your case will be thrown out. If you die, your death will be recorded as a “covid-19” death in order to push more justification for more vaccines.

On top of all that, the vaccines probably won’t even work.

YOU will have to pay all the medical costs stemming from vaccine injuries

By achieving absolute legal immunity for unsafe, rushed, experimental vaccines, the vaccine drug giants have transferred all financial risk to you, the patient.

You will have to bear all the hospitalization costs, funeral costs and lifelong injury costs associated with their toxic vaccines. They have no liability whatsoever.

This arrangement — essentially U.S. Congress-approved collusion between Big Pharma and rich, elite lawmakers who accept campaign contributions from the industry — is outrageous. It strips the people of due process rights while shifting cost burdens from Big Pharma to the very people who are being forcibly injected against their wishes.

You are forced to take the shot, in other words, and then forced to pay for the injuries caused by the shot. Big Pharma gets away scot-free, pocking all the profits while facing none of the financial liability for their dangerous, untested vaccine cocktails.

The CDC, FDA and WHO are all in on the scam, of course, as is the corporate media, medical journals and Big Tech. That’s because they all get kickbacks from Big Pharma. The money flows like water as millions of people face injuries or death from an unsafe, unproven vaccine medical experiment that clearly violates Nuremberg principles abolishing medical experiments on human beings.

It’s no wonder so many Americans are now publicly asserting that they will defend their lives against any vaccine assault, which is technically an assault with a deadly weapon.

If the government forces you to be injected with something, it’s insane to simultaneously claim that YOU have to bear the financial burden stemming from injury or death

Obviously, if the government forces some medical intervention upon you, depriving you of the choice to say no, they can’t simultaneously force you pay the medical costs and cover the lost work income stemming from injury caused by those very same medical interventions. This is the government demanding vaccine victims cover the product liability costs that should be covered by the manufacturer.

Imagine if the government forced all Americans to buy Ford Pinto cars, and then granted Ford total immunity from any liability related to those cars exploding. That would be the government forcing you to subject yourself to risk of real harm from a faulty product (the Pintos exploded when lightly tapped from the rear) while simultaneously forcing you to cover the costs of injury and hospitalization stemming from the faulty product itself.

That’s insane. It’s rigged. It is unjust, and it deprives Americans of their basic constitutional rights. Yet it’s exactly what Congress has put in place for vaccine manufacturers, who have a long, dark history of science fraud, criminal price fixing, rigging clinical trials and lying to government regulators.

In fact, it’s difficult to find an industry run by more criminal-minded fraudsters than the vaccine industry, which routinely lies and deceives the U.S. public, falsely claiming that vaccines harm no one even as the U.S. government itself releases quarterly statistics detailing an astonishing number of people (mostly children) who are maimed, hospitalized and killed by vaccines. You can download the government statistics yourself at VAERS.HHS.gov

Dr. Mikovits warns the coronavirus vaccine might kill 50 million Americans

Dr. Judy Mikovits, who have been viciously attacked by the vaccine-controlled media, recently explained that she believes a COVID-19 vaccine might kill as many as 50 million people in the United States. Via VaccineImpact.com:

“So now you’re going to inject an agent, into every cell in the body. I just can’t even imagine a recipe for anything other than what I would consider mass murder on a scale where 50 million people will die in America from the vaccine.”

CHD V. FCC Press Conference: Evidentiary Brief Filing on Thursday, July 30 at 3:30 p.m. ET

By Unnatributed | Children’s Health Defense

Image Credit: Activist Post

Join Robert F. Kennedy’s Children’s Health Defense for a live, virtual press conference on Thursday, July 30, 2020 at 3:30 p.m. ET/12:30 PT to discuss this exciting milestone in our landmark case against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – the submission of the evidentiary brief.

To fulfill our commitment to stopping the harmful exposure of our children to 5G and wireless radiation, CHD has taken this giant step toward unprecedented litigation against the FCC and you are invited to learn more directly from our attorneys and petitioners.

The case is challenging the FCC’s refusal to review its 25-year-old obsolete wireless “health guidelines”and  to promulgate scientific, human evidence-based radio frequency emissions (“RF”) rules that adequately protect public health. The FCC’s false “health guidelines” have enabled the uncontrolled proliferation of harmful wireless technology and more recently, the deployment of dangerous 5G installations.

CHD’s lawsuit asserts that the FCC’s refusal to update these guidelines despite the submission of overwhelming evidence of harm from wireless technology radiation, is capricious, arbitrary, not evidence based, and an abuse of its discretion. The success of our case will be a game changer in the battle to stop Big Tech from further damaging children and all life.

This evidentiary brief is the main submission in our case and provides the evidence upon which the petitioners rely. It cites thousands of studies, including those conducted by U.S. government agencies, and numerous reports that show clear evidence of harm. It also outlines scientifically the established mechanisms of harm from wireless radiation. Additionally, the brief shines a light on the human evidence of widespread sickness, which the FCC ignored when it egregiously closed its docket on the issue on Dec. 4 2019.

This illuminating and celebratory press conference will be held the day after CHD files its brief on July 29, 2020 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

During the live Zoom conference, we will offer an opportunity for questions from the media and our community of concerned citizens. Register today and watch children’s advocacy history in the making.

In this landmark case, CHD seeks justice for parents of children injured by wireless devices, including a mother whose son died from a brain tumor from cell phone use and cell tower exposure along with physicians who see the epidemic of sickness in their clinics daily. The submission of this brief brings us one step closer to holding the FCC accountable for its utter failure to protect the health and safety of our children and the public.

Speakers include: Robert F. Kennedy Jr., CHD Chairman; Dafna Tachover, Esq. MBA,  CHD’s Director of 5G & Wireless Harms Project; Scott McCollough, Esq., CHD’s attorney; and David Carpenter, M.D., a Petitioner in the case; as well as parents who submitted affidavits in the case describing their children’s injuries and death from wireless radiation.
