Distractions: How to Get Past Them

Distractions are everywhere. Lately, after binge watching a television show and suffering with a headache for two days, I realized I am way overstimulated. Between social media updates, screens, earbuds and everything we really need to do in a day, you’re probably distracted, too. Too much input is coming at your eyes and ears.

Motivation: Don’t work so hard at the wrong things.

Motivation: What’s Yours? What works? A comment about motivation being “all that matters” really got me going this week. It didn’t motivate me. It irritated me. Worse, it was in the first line of a self-help book.

The Big Calorie Lie and a Powerful Visualization

Arguing with People Who Are Wrong

On today’s podcast: 1. Your micro-biome and cravings. 2. The most effective exercise doesn’t take long at all. 3. When does arguing help? Is it worth it? It turns out the answer is 4% of the time (at best!) On this episode of the All That Chazz Stress Relief Podcast, I rant a little and I expect some arguing.
