Yoga for Pain Relief – Does It Really Work?

As recently as 10 years ago, if you approached your doctor complaining of back pain, you would essentially be sent to bed. For traditional medicine, rest was the prescription to back pain relief and, if that didn’t work… Well, you need more rest!

Contemporary treatments for back pain however, have become more holistic. Today, getting back into action and moving as soon as possible following painful incidents, injuries, and even many surgeries is the accepted practice. So yes, yoga for pain relief really does work.

According to the online publishing site for Harvard Medical School, “Yoga can help people with arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine, low back pain, and many other types of chronic pain conditions.”

In fact, there are many studies […]

5 Fad Diets You Should Avoid

The definition of a fad is “an interest followed with exaggerated zeal” (WordWeb.info). When it comes to fad diets though, it seems like “zeal” is not a strong enough word to describe the attachment some can develop toward their chosen weight loss path. Perhaps fervency and vehemence are more accurate. However we choose to describe such a commitment to a new diet, all too many people look for a magic bullet in order to lose weight, taking things on face value, and trusting almost anyone when it comes to nutrition, food, and diet.

According to an article at Health.com, there are currently 14 Fad Diets You Shouldn’t Try because, “From the impractical […]

Instagram Engagement – How to Begin a Conversation

Social media has become such a popular marketing tool for a single reason – it allows you to engage your target audience in a conversation. As a marketing tool, Instagram engagement may be unsurpassed by any other platform.

In the world of online marketing, and particularly in the world of social media marketing, “engagement” is the hottest buzz word going. What does it mean? According to social media guru Jason Falls, engagement is defined as “communicating well enough that the audience pays attention.” Or, to put it more simply, engagement is a two-way conversation.

How to Use Instagram to Engage your Audience

Work/Life Balance: Who You Are vs. What You Do

When did “work/life balance” become the Holy Grail of personal satisfaction and fulfillment – as well as the domain of online coaches?

After all, it doesn’t seem an outrageous concept – work/life balance includes proper prioritizing between “work” (career and ambition) and “lifestyle” (health, pleasure, leisure, family and spiritual development/meditation). Why would finding balance between the two be so difficult for so many?

I believe there is a mindset that has become pervasive in the West, and which has inevitably created dissatisfaction for many: let’s call it the dissonance between who you are vs. what you do. I use the word dissonance deliberately here because, you’ll never find balance between work and life if those two aspects of your self-identity are out […]

Limiting Beliefs or Confirmation Bias – Which one is holding you back?

In a previous post we examined the concept of confirmation bias; the idea that we seek to reinforce our beliefs whenever they are challenged, rather than accepting a new point of view. Though similar in effect, limiting beliefs come from a different place and are reinforced by different thoughts and experiences.

It goes without saying that life teaches us many lessons, both good and bad. Equally important are the influences of others when we’re young, those we refer to as role models. While the positive lessons we learn from them may become the foundation of confirmation bias, the negative lessons tend toward becoming limiting beliefs.

The Difference Between Bias and Limiting Beliefs

If you’ve been told what an exceptional person you are […]
