Further research by Dr Lieberman showed that Tylenol could dull social pain in much the same way as it dulls physical pain. Why does it matter that our brains group physical and social pain together? It demonstrates on an extremely basic level that our connection with other human beings is fundamental to our health. It's so vital that our brains register both large and small threats to that connection as literally painful events. It's simple! Our need for connection to other human beings, a strong social support network, is a must for good health, just like nourishing food. ROBUST SUPPORT NETWORKS AND ACHIEVING WELLNESS Our brains see the loss of connection with other people just like the loss of a limb--both events are registered as pain. Because this gift can be frustrating, it must be coupled with gratitude. By realizing that you've been given the gift of an idea to share, you can thank the powers that be for that gift and move forward in the humble, quiet energy of knowing that what you believe should be true, will be. We all have the skill set to employ gratitude. What's great is that it is the gift that keeps on giving. It's an action that needs to be mobilized, a muscle that needs to be strengthened. To get there, just be grateful and enjoy the fruits of that gift, as they are many. Motivating, Inspiring, Contagious Energy It's great to lead your life, but when you enroll a class, a team, an organization, a community, or the entire world to change for the better, you are a Leader with a capital L. True leaders do not do what they're not good at doing. When you have this energy, you might not even know you're moving others to change, and that's all right. Remember, this isn't about judging yourself or wondering what you may see on the list. This is an exercise of moving pain in your mind and heart to paper, creating awareness in a tangible form, which is one step toward healing and thriving.

Next, as you look at what's written, beside each person, event, or situation, identify which of the seven categories on article 220 this resentment would fall into. Then answer the following questions: Is there more pain and frustration from one person? Is there a theme I can identify that I'm angry about? If so, what do I notice? TIP #3: REFLECT AND MOVE FORWARD. Placing resentful and bitter feelings, thoughts, and situations on paper is taking suffering out of your mind so that you can begin letting this pain go. When you can set aside twenty to thirty minutes, go to a quiet space and, taking the list you created in the previous exercise, reflect on the one relationship, event, or situation that is most in need of healing. Within this product category I would include all overnight vitamin A or retinol treatments, hydrating boosters, anti-ageing peptide serums - anything runny that you use underneath a moisturiser or oil. Dedicated night cream. Emulsions or moisturisers are still fundamentally more expensive to make than cleansers or toners, and if you are under 40 you can still prevent and repair damage before it's too late. Facial oils. Yes, you can get cheap base oils, but there is a world of difference in my mind between a basic `face oil' and a sophisticated one made by the likes of doctors, facialists and the leaders of all things face oil, such as French dedicated salon brands. Go for mid-range. Exfoliating acids. Affordable, mid-range options are fine. Not pricey. Think something you can pick up in a pharmacy. Most of us lead lives that rob our brains and bodies of what they need, and we pay a heavy price. As biological creatures, we are exquisitely tuned by our evolutionary history to expect certain features in our daily environment.

The gradual onset of daybreak, the brightness of the morning, the gradual waning of light at dusk are vital cues to our inner clock. When they are mistimed or missing, we can suffer from disturbed sleep, depressed mood, and general malaise. Another example: Nutritionists tell us our metabolism expects a diet low in salt and sugar. Both of these were scarce luxuries until two or three centuries ago. Today we have cheap, easy access to them. This has allowed an overindulgence that is reflected in the dangerous rise of high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes. Our world was drastically changed, and continues to be changed, by industrialization and the unchecked growth of cities that followed. Industrialization obeys its own inner laws of growth. It's not just avoiding pain that makes adequate social support important, as there's even more evidence that social support matters to our health. One study revealed that smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day predicted less about your likely survival than a lack of social support. Beyond that, it's no secret that lonely, isolated people experience greater levels of stress and depression, both of which carry numerous negative health consequences of their own. We need others not just to avoid pain, but to mitigate health risks and encourage wellness. Being happy and healthy is not a solitary pursuit. This is even more accurate if you are struggling with autoimmune disease. The ups and downs of chronic illness require us to bravely reveal our vulnerability and find others whom we can rely on for help and support. You are more likely to make the dietary and lifestyle changes we advocate in this article successfully within a loving, caring community. Do not underestimate how significant that network is when it comes to healing and achieving wellness. Find your tribe and ask them to show up for you as you undertake this journey! It's wonderful to not even be aware that you're a model for others--it allows you to be their unsung hero, and that's a generous way to share your energy. This energy requires .

The Gifts of Caring and Nurturing. If you've ever taken someone under your wing and directed him or her away from distress and into satisfaction, then you have the ability to deploy a motivating, inspiring energy. It takes a green thumb to grow a fertile garden, and nurturing tendencies are excellent fertilizer for terrific teams. Great leaders manage each person with an understanding of who that person is and what he or she can be. The desire alone to help someone else grow is a great gift. If you're a natural way to go! These are just a few examples of different types of energy and gifts. There are also external gifts given to us by life itself, which I cover in the next article. Write out the resentment you have by answering these prompts: If I have expressed it to someone, did I feel fully heard and understood at the end of the conversation? If you are ready to let this resentment go, after all of the journaling, write this: I give myself permission to let this anger and resentment go. This suffering I've been carrying no longer serves me and is blocking love, light, and healing. In order to thrive in motherhood and in my life, I'm letting the resentment go. Now, close your eyes and imagine the pain and resentment in the form of a balloon you are holding in your hand. Open your hand and let it go. Watch in your mind as the balloon floats away from you into the vastness of the sky. Taking your hand and placing it on your heart, keep your eyes closed and imagine white, healing light moving from your hands into your heart, filling your chest and then your body, and radiating out through your arms, legs, and feet and the top of your head. Moisturiser. Simply opt for a decent product - you don't need to spend a fortune.

You can go wild, but ultimately all moisturisers do the same thing. Eye products. Don't break the bank. If you have a good serum and you are on a budget, you can skip this. Face masks. If they're hydrating, they predominantly consist of glycerin and hyaluronic acid, and are not expensive to make. Clay masks. Floral water or spritz. But beyond that, one reason it spreads is that it offers obvious advantages. For most people, famine and plague are no longer constant dangers. The average life span has lengthened to an extent unimagined in an earlier day. Access to education has spread beyond a tiny group of elites, and ordinary people have dared to hope that they can make their lives better in the future. At the same time, the costs of industrialization reach far beyond teeming slums and dark, satanic mills. Today, most people in the Western world are cut off from easy access to the natural environment. They live and work indoors, in artificially controlled climates and under artificial lights. Their daily rhythm is determined more by the needs of the economy than the cycles of the sun. In theory, those who live in suburbs or in the countryside can still have more natural lives, but in practice this rarely happens. Non-urban areas are increasingly contaminated by water and air pollution.
