End of Summer; Sabotaging Thoughts, and Advantages


This past summer I slacked off quite a bit on my eating plan. A large reason for slacking off was what I like to call “sabotaging thoughts”. Sabotaging thoughts are, essentially, the thoughts that give me permission to eat something that wasn’t good for me and didn’t benefit my health.

How To Deal With Anger And Not Burst Into Tears


I was thinking of the word anger and what it really means. Like, what does it mean to really be angry? A common definition relays the feeling to annoyance and displeasure. That seems right, I do feel both of those things while 'angry' but why do we feel that way towards others or situations, why do we care? I did a little follow up and when we express/feel anger we are using the limbic system in the brain and not the cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex is the thinking part of our brain while the limbic system is basically our emotional center.
