Amazing stuff- How you can retrain your brain to work around pain and other issues

Hi Everyone,
I watched an amazing podcast Nine Essential Steps Peak Brain Body Performance on Bulletproof radio with Dave Aspery who is a brilliant self taught Brain Hacker today ( which I am addicted to!) with a lady called Anat Baniel who has made some amazing discoveries about how the brain works things out and who has been able to work out how to hack the brain to find new pathways and it is so damn simple that we all should be doing it. Anat has done amazing things with Children with all sorts of conditions where the parents were told the child would live in a vegetative state and yet with some of Anat’s training those kids are now fully functioning adults who are themselves contributing to the world in amazing ways. For those of us with Chronic Pain , Scoliosis, Invisible Illness, Mental Health issues and other serious health issues this should be the first stop but unfortunately Drs are not aware of refuse to believe what modern Neuroscience is discovering. You can change the way that your brain learns, feels and sees the world with a series of movement exercises. Anat coins the phrase “Intentional Movement” as a key factor rather than the normal movement that we do without thinking about it- like gyms stuff. This stuff is groundbreaking and should be a part of our basic education going into the future. Please  Check out  the Bulletproof radio interview and her page- It’s really astounding.

I can’t believe it… But I lost 6.8kg this WEEK!
Because of my illness, I can do a lot of exercise and my medication also causes weight gain, and I hate it. So I decided to try the Apple Cider Vinegar(ACV) with #GarciniaCambogia (GC) but was Very skeptical.
I used the cheapest #ACV at the supermarket that had ‘the mother’ in it, basically unpasteurized and clouds and the cheapest GarciniaCambogia at the chemist.
Starting last Monday morning I weighted in at 98kg and took 2tbspn Acv in a cup of hot water with some honey and one tablet of GC I didn’t like the taste at all waited half an hour before I ate breakfast and then ate and drank as normal.
I could feel the acv in my system, tasted it in my mouth all day, felt a bit yucky and nausea was worse than normal but did the same thing the next morning but added apple and mango V8 juice which made it taste better. Nausea was gone on day 2.
Did the same for the week except I forgot yesterday.
I put the scales next to the kettle before I went to bed to remind me to weigh myself.
It was funny, this morning I was like, I don’t feel like acv this morning I think I will just have tea, tripped over the scales, weighed myself, weighed myself again, then a third time incase I was dreaming. Nope it really said 91.2kgs…did a little dance. Drank my vinegar like it was the best thing in the world, work Daniel to tell him, rang my MIL, texted my bestie and thought I should post it because it is that easy.
No diet, no calorie counting, no super exercise, hey I even pegged out on chocolate a few times as I was determined to do everything else normal. So give it a try, will post next week’s result. I also have a little bit more energy and a little less fatigue. No effect on pain score so far. And if you have to take medication take it at least 1hr before or after acv as I discovered that mine worked less effectively if taken too close to acv. Oh and I did yoga every 3rd day but more on that in another post

This is the final artwork of this colouring page for the Mental Health & Invisible Illness colouring book.
I have changed the font and added some different elements from the original concept sketch but I think it’s more balanced.
I will have a PDF of this colouring page available for free download on our website next week, so keep checking for the link. Cheers Teesha

Just doodling because it’s melting hot and my hands are shaking.
Some groovy little skullies and I left a blank one at the bottom for you to make your own.
So colour them if you want to and then show me how you are feeling today by making a skullie of your feelings.

It’s a good mental health exercise that I have found.

Sometimes it is easier to show your feelings in a drawing.

Have fun and don’t forget to show me @craftwerx @craftwerxstudio or email them if you don’t want to show the world teeshamorgan@craftwerx.studio I love to see your finished work.

Still just doodling, it is so hot at the moment that it is affecting my chronic illness so I am all shaky.
So I did this to remind myself to be gentle to myself when I can’t do what I want and just Breathe.
I think I will colour this one. It’s just a Doodle but if you like please print it and color it, then show it to me @craftwerx.
How do you remind yourself to take it easy when you need to?
