Loving Change, As Difficult as It Is In Buddhism, the word Anicca refers to the concept of impermanence. In other words, nothing stays the same. My family recently experienced a significant change, as my eldest daughter took flight to study abroad in Italy for seven months to complete her high school years. Surely, this particular change is a great opportunity and, so, I wanted to embrace it wholeheartedly.


Instead, I found myself crying days before and weeks following her departure. Sometimes, navigating and adapting to transition is no easy feat. As the weeks passed, things got easier. I found it best to pause, reflect, feel it, and move forward.

I knew I had to embrace this new beginning and come to terms with accepting the things I can neither change nor control.

This brings me to a song that my grandmother, Emily, used to hum when I was just a little girl – “Que sera, sera; whatever will be, will be. The future’s not ours to see.” Those lyrics have given me comfort as I’ve navigated my own life – especially during unchangeable situations, as hard as they were to accept. She would say, “I must move on.” "whatever will be, will be." The song is of Italian origin. The phrase, “Que sera, sera,” means that the future is up in the air, and whatever is going to happen, will happen. Doris Day had a big hit with this song in her movie, “The Man Who Knew Too Much” (1956). Check it out. I wrote these lyrics down for my daughter on her journey to study in Italy. As I hum the verse in my head, even now, I find myself building up my strength and finding comfort in knowing that what will be will be! Let it go! I would like to share with you the letter I wrote to Isabelle as I bid her farewell. Perhaps this will help you in some way. " Dear Isabelle, My love for you is unconditional. I never really understood what that meant until I" My love for you is unconditional. I never really understood what that meant until I held you in my arms for the first time. They would say a daughter’s love is like no other! I will cherish US! And I look forward to the future… what will be, will be! It was a pleasure to have raised you. We have had our share of laughs and tears. You certainly didn’t come with instructions and, as my first-born, it was truly a trial-and-error experience. Lol Every experience thus far, no matter the outcome, has shaped you into the wonderful woman you are today. As you step off the plane, it’s time to look toward your future with no regrets. Allow your struggles and successes to shape the woman you have become. As you start this new chapter, whatever will be, will be! I realized I can read this to myself! As I start my own new chapter of letting my daughter go. I’m certainly more prepared for when my two youngest children fly the coop. Thanks goodness I have two years to prepare! (And Hover) Embrace change. It’s inevitable.

The fabulous flavor combo of cilantro, pumpkin seeds, and squash adds bounce to shrimp or tofu. Cilantro is rich in minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants, and has shown anti-diabetic, cholesterol-lowering, and anti-inflammatory effects in early studies. Pumpkin seeds are a great source of minerals and trace minerals, most notably zinc and magnesium.  Serves 4 1 pound 16/20 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined, OR 1½ pounds firm tofu Marinade for Tofu ½ cup white wine ½ teaspoon salt Squeeze of lime 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 cups butternut squash, cut in small-sized dice

Spicy Cilantro Pesto 2 cups fresh cilantro, washed well ¼ cup pumpkin seeds, toasted ½ cup olive oil 2 cloves garlic 1 tablespoon lime juice ½ teaspoon salt Pinch of chili flakes ¼ cup parmesan (optional)

To make pesto: Place all pesto ingredients into food processor and puree. Set aside. For shrimp: Pat shrimp dry and lightly season with salt and pepper to add flavor and prevent sticking in the pan. Heat a medium-sized sauté pan with 1 tablespoon oil and sear shrimp for approximately 1½ –2 minutes per side. Remove from pan and reserve. For tofu: Rinse tofu, pat dry, and cut into 1-inch cubes. Mix wine, salt, and a squeeze of lime and warm in a small pot. Cover tofu in warm marinade and allow to sit for 1 hour.

Heat a medium-sized sauté pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and sear tofu cubes for 5 to 8 minutes, turning once. Remove from pan and set aside. Reheat the sauté pan and add the squash. Sauté squash until it becomes tender and starts to caramelize, about 6 minutes. Once squash is caramelized, add shrimp or tofu. Cook for 1 minute to warm; be careful not to overcook the shrimp. Remove from heat and toss with pesto. Serve over quinoa. Copyright © 2018 Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health. All rights reserved. Reprinted with Permission.

Home Practices and Remedies for Regular Detoxification Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Healthy Living, Total Life Cleanse How do you go beyond diet when cleansing? Here are some simple home practices and remedies that you can incorporate for regular detox throughout the year, or ramp up while focusing on a dietary detox. Sweating for Skin and Lymph Detoxification The body releases hundreds of chemicals and toxins through the skin in our sweat. In this way, sweating benefits the lymphatic system, kidneys, lungs, skin, liver and blood. Sweating can be achieved through exercise, sauna or bathing. Dry Brushing and External Oleation Using a dry brush, which can be purchased at most health food stores, removes dead skin cells from the surface. After dry brushing, lightly massaging the entire body from head to toe with sesame or coconut oil is extremely nourishing for the tissues, assists the body with drawing out fat-soluble toxins and rejuvenates and moisturizes the skin.

removes the toxic coating that builds up on your tongue, especially when used first thing in the morning. Nasal Rinsing Using a neti pot first thing in the morning, every day, will eliminate particulates, toxins, bacteria and common allergens from your sinuses and enhance circulation of air, blood and energy in your body. Regular media cleansing We are not able to digest an unlimited amount of food; neither are we able to process an unlimited amount of energy and information. While it is obviously beneficial to avoid ingesting unhealthy foods, it’s also extremely beneficial to avoid unhealthy sensory, informational and emotional input, and to limit the amount of input we are exposed to. Media is generally a source of excessive input. It is not only stimulating but also stressful and mind-numbing or depressing.

Tongue Scraping Another handy device that can be found in most pharmacies and health food stores, a tongue scraper

SuperHuman Healing by Diane Jordan CCH, CRT, LMT

sōōpərˈ(h)yōōomən adjective Having or showing exceptional ability or powers.

hēling/ noun The process of making or becoming sound or healthy again.

If you’ve lived your whole life with a significant power you never knew you had, and suddenly you discover that power and begin to use it, becoming more and more powerful with it,wouldn’t that feel kind of “SuperHuman”? I think so. That’s how it feels to me. Because discovering this power and getting really good at using it has changed my life. SuperHuman Healing is the power to self-heal. And we all have it. The human being is selfhealing. Cuts heal. But what about lingering emotional pain, anxiety, and chronic pain? These are areas where I’ve seen my clients have the most frustrating lack of healing. Symptoms resolve but then often reappear, transform and move to a new body location. Why does this happen? In many cases the cause is “Sympathetic Symptoms.” These are symptoms which arise suddenly. One moment you’re fine, the next you’re having negative thoughts, anxiety reaction, fatigue, physical pain. Sympathetic Symptoms often become chronic. Understanding why and how Sympathetic Symptoms happen is the first step in realizing your SuperHuman Healing power to overcome these issues. It first requires having a basic understanding of Universal Energy (UE) and the Human Energy System.

Universal Energy (UE): Energy is vibration. High vibration energy (HVE) is beneficial, low vibration energy (LVE) is detrimental. The highest vibration energy is Life Force (white light/pure love). The lowest vibration energy is fear. All other energy is leveled in between. Energy is boundless. Think of UE like oxygen. We are all sharing oxygen and we all have a system for processing that oxygen. In the same, we are all sharing UE and we all have a system for processing that energy. Every living thing is by its nature, energetically empathic. In order to be living, we must constantly absorb and release UE. We are all swimming in a universal pool of Universal Energy! This continued 

Healthy Living Magazine spring summer 2018


universal energy

is really important to understand because, as we share UE with every living thing, we also potentially share everything that is energetic within their personal being and vice versa.

If absorbed in then it is processed through the Chakras and manifests into the physical reality (thoughts, emotions, body, life situations).

For example, when we observe pure joy (giggling baby, playful puppy), we absorb that HVE and feel happy. An adorable FB video can be instantly uplifting. But with the reverse – we observe fear, anger, and grief. We can absorb that LVE and feel it. When we notice a Sympathetic Symptom our immediate tendency is to find a logical reason for what we are suddenly experiencing. This results in our “owning” the symptom. Thereby Sympathetic Symptoms can easily become chronic symptoms which we then attempt to manage through medicine, therapies, etc.

A strong EF will absorb lots of HVE, a minimal amount of LVE and help Chakras to function optimally. Weakness in the EF will allow LVE to be absorbed. This blocks the Chakras and impedes their function; allowing that LVE to manifest in physical reality. Likewise, blocks and dysfunction in the Chakras cause weak spots in the EF. The Chakras and EF are mutually reliant.

The Human Energy System consists of: • Soul (spiritual energy) • Thought (mental energy) • Feeling (emotional energy) • Sensation (physical energy) • Chakras are energy vortices which draw in and release energy. I refer to the Chakras as the “lungs of the energy system.” • Energy field (EF) is our unique energy vibration which surrounds our physical body. UE comes into contact with our EF and is either kept out or absorbed in.

Sue wakes up feeling great. It’s a day off, with plans for a massage! She gets coffee and turns on the morning news. Within minutes she notices stiffness in her upper back. A few minutes more and this develops into pain between her shoulder blades. Sue thinks, “I must have overdone it at the gym, I’m probably dehydrated.” She drinks water, eats a banana and stretches. The pain lessens but doesn’t stop.

So how does this all fit together? In this scenario, the absorbed LVE is in bold:

Next, her mom calls. Mom talks about her hip pain, worry over upcoming hip replacement surgery and how she misses Sue’s father (deceased 6 months). Now Sue’s heart starts racing, her throat constricts, her neck hurts. These anxiety symptoms seem to happen almost every time Mom calls. Sue wishes she could talk about her own grief, but she’s too worried about Mom to open up to her. Sue practices some breathing exercises and symptoms gradually subside but don’t stop. She’s really glad for her massage today because she doesn’t want to take an anxiety pill. As she gets out of the car at the Healing Center, Sue notices her low back is sore. “Ugh I’m getting so old, everything hurts!” The massage therapist gives her a wonderful massage with Reiki. Sue feels great again! But later that night the pain comes back. She takes ibuprofen and goes to sleep. At 4 a.m. Sue wakes up from a sound sleep. As she looks at the clock in dismay Sue wonders why this keeps happening every night. She’s uncomfortable, anxious and unable to fall back to sleep. What happened? Sue woke up feeling great but soon felt horrible from absorbing LVE in the following ways:

1) The Morning News* - After hearing the story of a man’s tragic death, grief and loss were absorbed through weak spots/blocks in Sue’s EF and Heart Chakra (love center) and manifested as pain between her shoulder blades. She owned the symptom with the thought “I overdid it at the gym.”

subconscious memories of previous experiences with these and other symptoms.

2) Mom‘s call - Worry and grief absorbed through weak spots/blocks in Sue‘s EF and Heart Chakra (love center) and Throat Chakra (self-expression center). The LVE manifested as sudden onset of anxiety symptoms, throat constriction and neck pain.

We can access our SuperHuman Healing power through learning to be diligent in our awareness of what and how we feel and techniques to release energy that isn’t ours. As soon as a symptom suddenly arises, reflect on where it may be coming from and don’t own it!

3) At the healing center - The low back pain manifested from mutual, shared blocks in Sue’s and Mom’s Sacral Chakras (relationship center) due to loss of a loved one. The thought,“I’m getting so old,” allows owning of the symptom. All of the symptoms in this story were a result of absorbed LVE. Although they came on suddenly when she was feeling great, Sue owns the symptoms because of

Common Triggers Of Autoimmune Disease by William Cole, D.C.

For many of my autoimmune patients it doesn't have to be a piece of bread or pasta to cause damage either. Foods crosscontaminated with gluten can be like gasoline on a fire for many people with autoimmune conditions.

Autoimmune conditions have grown rapidly over the past years, with more than 50 million Americans living with some sort of autoimmune disorder. I've already covered the multifaceted reasons for the autoimmune explosion we are seeing, and I've also given you some effective tools to reverse autoimmune symptoms and balance your immune system. Did you know there are common triggers that can flare up an autoimmune response and cause devastating symptoms in the body. From full-blown autoimmune diseases like Crohn's, celiac or Hashimoto's disease to common "autoimmune spectrum disorders" like acne, or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), it's important to know what the potential "land mines" are that can turn on an inflammatory-immune response in your body:

Gluten-free grains Many people with autoimmune problems already avoid gluten, but still consume foods like corn, oats and rice. As well-intentioned as that decision may be, these grains can be just as damaging as gluten, or even more damaging. The proteins in these grains are very similar to gluten, which can be like a game of Russian roulette for someone

Gluten The infamous "G" word is a protein that's found in wheat, barley, spelt, rye and other grains. This protein is linked in many different studies to an increase risk of autoimmunity. Many people and their doctors believe you have to have celiac disease to be gluten intolerant. When their labs for Celiac come back negative, they are told that avoiding gluten is not necessary. This antiquated misinformation keeps many people struggling with an autoimmune condition very sick.

Everyone is different, so it's helpful to run immunological blood tests to see what your body is cross-reacting with. Quinoa A favorite in the health community, pseudograins like quinoa are high in proteins called saponins which can damage the gut lining, causing an immune response in the body. Soaking and rinsing quinoa can reduce the gut-damaging effect, but for many autoimmune conditions this is not enough. Stress Stress has many far-reaching effects on your health; one of them is your immune system. Research has found chronic mental stress to be a trigger for autoimmune diseases. Many of my patients noticed the onset of their health problems during a rough time in their life. Caring for an aging parent, the loss of a loved one or a divorce can be the tipping point for an autoimmune response. Toxins Our environment has been bombarded with toxins that were unknown 100 years ago. Studies have shown toxins play a role in autoimmune cases such as autoimmune thyroiditis.

Sugar It should be no surprise that sugar is on this list, but I'm not just talking about the stereotypical junk food. There are many "healthy" junk foods that are popular in the health food community that will not be good for autoimmune conditions. Healthier-sounding terms like "organic turbinado sugar" or "agave nectar" on a food label may sound more earthy and natural, but sugar is still sugar to the immune system. Chocolate This yummy food can cause a lot of damage to someone living with an autoimmune condition. The literature shows that some people who struggle with autoimmune problems may be negatively affected by chocolate. Dairy Casein, the main protein found in milk and other dairy products, can be a trigger for runaway inflammation in the body. Removal of the dairy proteins in ghee or clarified butter can be a safer alternative for some people. Some autoimmunity disorders can also handle fermented dairy, like grass-fed whole yogurt or kefir. Nightshades A plant group that consists of tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplants, goji berries and some spices contains alkaloids in their skin which can cause an inflammatory response in the body. SIBO Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO, occurs when normal bacteria of the microbiome grow from the continued

suffering from an autoimmune condition. Just like gluten sensitivities, symptoms do not have to be gastrointestinal in nature. A flare-up of any autoimmune symptom can occur with exposure to grains.

mind body

large intestines where they belong into the small intestines. This can lead to a number of localized autoimmune spectrum conditions such as IBS and acid reflux. Chronic SIBO can also lead to a leaky gut which can then cause autoimmune problems throughout the body. Weakened microbiome The majority of your immune system resides in what's referred to as the microbiome. This highly sophisticated gut ecosystem consists of trillions of bacteria colonies. Your microbiome controls not only your immune system but your brain, hormones and genetic expression.

leaky gut can be seen as a causal trigger, but also the effect that proceeds from an autoimmune condition. When your gut is damaged undigested food proteins and bacterial endotoxins can pass through the protective gut lining, turning on an autoimmune reaction throughout the body. In summary, finding out your individual underlying triggers can save you from the years of unnecessary suffering that millions with autoimmune conditions go through. I clinically investigate autoimmune cases all around the world, customizing personalized plans for the individual.

Life Is Foreplay!

Moving Toward A More Fulfilled Sexual Life With Your Partner

by Kate and Joel Feldman

“But how?” our couples sigh. “Why can’t it be better”? “Why are we so stuck?”

intimacy, and create a passionate love life no matter what age in the life cycle.

Sex, like everything in a relationship, takes attention, time and energy. You cannot have a magical, juicy fulfilling relationship at any level unless you nourish and grow it. If you complain and don’t do anything about it nothing will change.

The practices must be learned and put in place over time. Core Principles 1. Presence: Learn to be with each pleasurable sensation moment to moment. Let go of all goals and agendas; follow your bodies as the sensual dance unfolds.

There is no pill you can take (really!) that will increase the passion between you. There are pills to help physiologically but the biggest and best sex organ is right between your ears: Your brain. And you have to learn to use it with regularity, and even discipline.

2. Life is foreplay: Use every interaction and every circumstance to build bridges to desire. The way you connect all through the day is key to enhancing your sexual life.

We have created a systematic method to train and support couples to deepen their desire, unlock sensual and sexual

3. Touch each other frequently in and outside the bedroom without the agenda of it “going somewhere”.

Again, practice being present to the pleasurable experience of the moment. 4. Become an intimate Team: Sex is a team sport. You win or lose together. Remember, any trouble your sex life has, must be solved together, as a team. 5. Talk about your needs, desires, and preferences. Learn to be vulnerable, take risks, experiment. Learn the art of deep listening and make sure you do not shame or criticize one another when talking about any aspect of sex. Each one of these principles includes practices for increasing the sensual flow between you. They are not new but what we know from personal and professional experience is that partners have to WANT something different and take time, resources, continued

energy, and make the choice to move toward one another differently. When you begin to practice, something different will happen between you. Surely, we all have barriers to increasing the intimacy between us.

You deserve to love and be loved. Being a couple can be one of the most rewarding growth experiences you’ll ever have. But you have to understand that’s what it’s about: Growing into the most magnificent being you can be. Let your sex life be the vehicle for being fully expressed – body, mind, heart and spirit. You could have a lot of fun in the process!

We come to our partners with beliefs and experiences which form our ability to love, be loved, share our bodies, experience pleasure, and open ourselves to another. Some of us were traumatized, some of us never learned to enjoy our bodies. Some of us feel happy and delighted with ourselves sexually and want our partners to feel the same. Sex is complicated because human beings are complex, and amazing beings. Our struggle is normal and expected.

GO FOR IT If you are a couple who has been together for a while, you probably experience some of what we, and many other couples in our culture go through. You are not alone, and you don’t have to figure it out by yourselves. If you find yourself stuck or offended or shut down or dissatisfied in your sexual life together, consider the possibility of education, inspiration, training, and a new approach. It could not only transform your sex life, but your relationship, as well as your experience of yourself as a sensual and sexual person.

by Sarah Platt-Finger

One of my favorite quotes of Mani Finger’s is “Be not the lover, or the loved. Be loving.” What does it mean to “be” loving, or to embody the essence of love? How can we truly love others if we do not know how to love ourselves? This is such a difficult concept because the ego wants us to get something in return for giving, especially if what we are offering is a piece of ourselves. But love as a force is limitless, so there is never less of us when we give it. Does the ocean seem less vast when it loses a drop? Why would we lose the magnitude of who we are by being kind and compassionate for no particular reason? In fact, it’s through the practice of sharing and giving love that love flows back to us.

The best way to know unconditional love is through our children or our pets. Here is an example: Recently, my daughter managed to pull apart a piece of our chandelier because she thought it was beautiful. The glass crystals sparkled like diamonds and, according to her, she needed a piece of it! Somehow she managed to climb up onto the dining room table, disassemble a glittering thread from the unit, and show Alan and me how proud she was of her accomplishment. Needless to say, this angered her father, who scolded her on why it was dangerous to climb up onto the table and take apart the furniture in the house! Satya welled up with tears and proceeded to cry for how much she needed and wanted the thread in her hand.


Holistic Physical Therapy Ian L. Rubinstein, M.P.T., M.R., owner of Eclectic Physical Therapy™, has over 25 years experience helping thousands of patients with their physical discomforts. He has created an integrative style of therapies, combining manual soft tissue release techniques with traditional physical therapy. This not-so-typical intervention has proven key to addressing his patients’ many states of “dis—ease”. Ian’s specialties include, but are not limited to: Neck/ Back Pain, Concussions, Headaches/Migraines, Bulging/ Herniated Discs, Pinched Nerves, Tendonitis/Bursitis, TMJ Dysfunctions, Fibromyalgia. Experience has taught Ian that under physical duress, restrictions develop that cause an individual’s body tissues to feel restricted, burdened, and/or “dis—eased”.

Remove the core restrictions and the body returns to its relaxed, balanced, healthy state. He has developed a unique therapy that focuses on listening to the body, identifying the trouble areas, and intuitively responding to its needs. Unlike traditional chiropractic and physical therapy methods which emphasize routine manipulation of the symptomatic body part, Ian utilizes a distinctive approach by incorporating techniques like Reiki, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and other forms of soft tissue release. This is what he refers to as “Light Touch” therapy. This diverse blend provides a patient with a therapy flexible enough to address many causes of the symptoms. 

“ Listen to the body, address its core issues, and let it perform the corrective releases it already knows how to do.”

When someone hurts us, we harbor anger and resentment towards that person. How could she do that to me? What was that person thinking? The ego and judging mind goes on and on and the “loving” part of us steps quickly and quietly to the side. Perhaps if Satya were only a few years older, her pouting would last a little bit longer. However in this instance, she managed to stop crying and, when I told her it was time for bed, her little feet began running into the bedroom. When I told her to say goodnight to her father, she stopped midway and said, “Wait! I forgot to give Daddy a hug!”

There were no words spoken between the chandelier altercation and that moment when Satya decided to give her Daddy a hug. She didn’t think about it, or rationalize it, or count in her mind how many hugs she had given up to that point and what she had received in exchange for them. She simply connected to her “loving” self and responded from that place. And, of course, she got the largest embrace filled with shakti and love from her father. It all came right back to her. continued

Practice to Connect to the Loving Self: Sat Yam with Anahata Bedhana 1. Sit or lie down comfortably and bring your awareness to the center of your chest. 2. Visualize a glow of light right at the center of your chest. 3. As you breathe in naturally, feel the light expand from the center of your chest outward; as you breathe out naturally, feel the light move back to a point in the center of the chest. 4. Silently add the sound “sat” on the inhale and “yam” on the exhale. Sat is the sound for purification and yam is the sound for emotional intelligence—the seed sound of the heart.

5. Repeat this several times until you feel the breath get a little quieter. 6.

This is the jiva, or the individual self, which relates to an unbound field of intelligence—the loving self.

How to Get “Authentic grit” is the passionate pursuit of gritty people have these 10 More Grit: Authentically hard goals that awes and inspires others to traits in common… become better people, flourish emotionally, 10 Traits In order to cultivate more grit, I believe take positive risks and live their best lives. To qualify for the label of authentic grit, it’s it’s best to focus on these 10 areas and not enough to be resilient, persistent, and understand these traits before rolling that Every passionate. I believe that gritty behavior is a up our sleeves to begin working on positive force only when it awes and inspires Authentically developing more of the right kind of grit others to want to become better people and in our own lives: imagine greater possibilities for themselves.

What if I others The people who have the quality Person devoted energy and time to cultivating my that makes such a positive difference pull passions? What if?” us into their lives in uplifting ways, and Needs they are inclusive, not exclusive. They by Caroline Adams Miller

Authentic grit isn’t something that is reserved for only a few special people, nor are those who have earned that classification clearly destined from childhood to be tough, resilient, and aweinspiring. While Angela Duckworth’s research has found that some of the strengths that undergird grit, such as optimism and impulse control, are hardwired at birth, many of the traits and behaviors of authentic grit can be learned. For example, goal-setting is a learnable science, as is selfregulation, even if some are born with a jump on it.

flourish in their relationships and build other people up. People with authentic grit foster teamwork and camaraderie. Authentic grit is magnetic, and you want to associate yourself with someone who is passionate about something in life because you want to feel that way, too. The same passion that those with authentic grit bring to goal pursuit is what allows them to create deep connections with others. They are people who don’t just love and appreciate others but also are comfortable being loved and continued

2. High hope People with authentic grit are hopeful and optimistic. Although they may not always be correct about what they think they can do, their positive beliefs offer protective benefits. People with this outlook work longer and harder than others and are less likely to quit when challenged. A hopeful mind-set also allows people to generate more potential solutions for accomplishing their goals and makes them believe they can carry out those solutions, too. But hope and optimism are hard to sustain when you aren’t pursuing your own goals and are trying instead to please others or achieve something that is more superficial than significant. 3. Humility Authentic grit is also marked by humility, which never promotes itself but rather attracts others. This is the humility of heroism under fire—for example, some selfless act that you don’t learn about until the person passes away. It is the humility of the woman who has toiled in obscurity for years without trumpeting her work improving the lives of others in a community food bank, proud because she knows she is giving her best to a meaningful goal that matters to her. Authentic grit is strikingly devoid of narcissism and the need to be recognized for what one does. Quite the contrary—those with authentic grit know what matters, and don’t need anyone’s approval or praise, nor do they seek publicity to boost their confidence or self-esteem. 4. Self-confidence Authentic grit is characterized by genuine confidence. People with authentic grit bet on themselves because they know they will have toxic regrets if they don’t give their goals everything they have. Their countenance can be unassuming, but they have a determined mindset that is known to the people around them. The person with authentic grit exhibits grace under pressure, as well as in defeat, and is consistent in his or her unwillingness to quit, whether a trophy or public acclaim or even no reward at all awaits at the finish line. Because they have faith in their abilities and a willingness to learn from mistakes, they have a battle-hardened confidence that is also spotted in the best leaders. 5. Givers, not takers Authentic grit is also defined by being the right kind of giver. These men and women don’t give to their own detriment. They primarily surround themselves with those who share their mindset but are not above mentoring others who lack focus or discipline. They recognize that being generative and seeing the lights go on in others’ eyes is part of a positive legacy, so they give without strings attached, and often do so secretly and 

without fanfare. So while people with authentic grit are selfish with their time and energy when they have to be, it’s never just all about them, because they know that other people matter. 6. Appropriate focus Authentic grit is focused. People who have this quality aren’t dogged finishers in everything in life. In fact, every person I interviewed who fit my criteria for authentic grit laughed immediately and said “No!” when I asked them if they are gritty in every area of life. They preserve their self-regulation for what really matters, and don’t waste time on everything that crosses their path. They narrow down what is meaningful to them and have no trouble finishing last in something else or being self-deprecating about something they aren’t good at. 7. Stubbornness Authentically gritty people have a certain kind of stubbornness, but use it as a form of “alternate rebellion” because it’s more effective than just being a disruptive troublemaker, which some of them—like Louis Zamperini, the real-life hero from the 2014 film Unbroken (that's him in the photo above)— have admitted to being before latching onto a focus that gave their lives purpose and meaning. As a young man, Zamperini ran away from home regularly, stole, fought, and was constantly in trouble until he discovered his talent for running, which he tirelessly honed until he reached the Olympics, finishing in eighth place in the 5000-meter race in 1936. Authentically gritty people can be obstinate, defiant, rebellious, and feisty, but they put that energy to good use when they need to dig deeper for positive goals. continued

appreciated. It’s interesting to note that the most beloved Hollywood movies are never about succeeding at a big goal and celebrating alone; they are about being gritty and sharing the journey with loved ones, win or lose. The wrong kind of grit often celebrates alone. In fact, this was the poignant message of the book—later turned into a movie—Into the Wild. Christopher McCandless mistakenly thinks that being isolated and self-reliant is the epitome of happiness, but he dies alone in agony, after eating poisonous berries, in a frigid school bus in Alaska. The last words he penned in the margins of a book that was later found simply read, “Happiness is best when shared.”

8. Learn from failure People with authentic grit have experienced disappointment in their goal pursuit, and as a result, they’ve had to learn how to handle defeat, integrate its lessons, and continue on their path. 9. Authenticity People with authentic grit are comfortable in their own skin. When you meet them, you may not detect special airs, and they are as comfortable being with other people as they are being alone. When they do the difficult, deliberate work that usually accompanies long-term goals, they do it alone and without excuses. They are not perfectionists to such an extreme that they beat themselves up, though. They know when to have enough selfcompassion and wisdom to step away, regroup, refocus, and then return to action. 10. Growth mindset Finally, people with authentic grit have what is called a “growth mindset” and not a “fixed mindset.” People with a growth mindset believe that hard work is the key to succeeding, and their curiosity and willingness to take risks allow them to explore different approaches and be flexible in goal pursuit. A fixed mindset believes that intelligence and talent are finite predictors of success and that getting a quick win is more important than working toward an important outcome. The fixed mindset also believes that effortless winning is most important, rather than being someone who grinds away toward success, dismissing the idea of doing hard work because it is something that only less talented people have to do. Baking the Grit Cake Much like a cake that tastes different when you leave out one ingredient, cook it too long, bake it at the wrong altitude or in the wrong pan, or forget to mix the ingredients thoroughly, it’s not enough just to follow these instructions, and hope for the best. Developing authentic grit means experimenting with these ideas, practicing them over and over, learning what works through trial and error, and evolving from a cook who masters one behavior at a time to a master chef who blends them all together repeatedly with hard work and for the right reasons. If you demonstrate self-control one day, but not regularly, or you can persist when you want to, but not most of the time, then you will not cultivate authentic grit—instead, you are someone who is dabbling in grit. Now that you have a good idea about how grit can be both well used and misused, I want you to think about what you need to do to improve your own grittiness in a variety of untested ways. Don’t try to change everything at once. Start with one of these 10 traits, pick something you want to work on, and follow the suggestions to see what works best for you in getting the results you want.

Elements Of Truly Balanced Fitness by Tamara Jacobi

High school gym class originally taught me that running every day was the key to fitness. I was then informed that power yoga was definitely the way to go, so I ditched my running shoes. Now I’m told that high-intensity training is the fitness miracle. After years of yo-yoing from one fitness fad to the next, I’ve finally put my foot down and embraced a new approach that I called "balanced fitness." What is balanced fitness? Essentially, I define balanced fitness as a fitness regime that challenges, strengthens, stretches and restores the body and mind with a range of motion. Balanced fitness realizes that there is really no silver bullet fitness solution. Instead, a balanced approach to fitness suggests incorporating a variety of fitness techniques, sports and movement into your fitness regime.

Are you an exercise addict? Or perhaps a tad lazy? If you’re confused about what balanced fitness means, then you’re not alone.

your body, developing a healthy relationship with your body and using your fitness regimen to support health and healing instead of focusing on strict goals that may harm the body. Ready to dive in? Here are five key elements that you’ll want to include in your balanced fitness plan. Whether you simply want to reap the healthy benefits of fitness, or you’re a competitive athlete looking for max performance, this is an excellent place to start.

It’s important to note that balance should not be confused with perfection! With fitness fads, as with fad diets, it’s tempting to follow a strict regimen with an "all-or-nothing" approach. Instead, balanced fitness encourages listening to

Moderate cardio/endurance/aerobic exercise. You’re probably familiar with this one. Slow-paced jogging, biking, walking, swimming, etc. all fall into this

category. Often thought to be the cornerstone of fitness, this area is generally given the most attention. However, though regular cardio is an important element of fitness, it's important to not over do it. Beware! Too much cardio can actually wear out the body, increase inflammation, burn muscle and cause weight gain in the long run. A few hours of “slow-go” cardio a week is plenty for most people. Also, be sure to mix it up with a variety of different sports and activities! High-intensity exercise. Many of us neglect this key piece of the fitness puzzle. Did you know that a short blast of intense exercise is a powerful fitness tool that strengthens the heart, lungs, bones and immune system, not to mention trains the body to burn excess fat, increase muscle, and prevent injury by improving joint strength? Welcome to the world of sprints, high-speed jumping jacks, quick sit-ups, burpees and fast-paced sports such as soccer or rugby. The best part? Pushing yourself to the limit means you can spend less time working out while still reaching peek athletic performance. Integrating a few high-intensity sessions into your fitness routine each week will bump your degree of fitness to new heights. Yoga. The physical and emotional benefits of yoga are endless: strength, balance, flexibility, healthy joints, mental control, stress reduction and restoration. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different yoga styles and move your body in a variety of ways. A Kundalini class will affect your body much differently than a stand-up paddleboard yoga class. Strength training with light weights or body resistance. Unless you regularly practice ashtanga or some other athletic yoga style, you’ll want to incorporate this element into your fitness routine as well. Try adding light weights (2-3 lbs. for ladies, 5-10 lbs. for guys) or some kind of resistance exercises to your fitness routine. To tone and

strengthen your body, heavy weights aren't necessary (unless you’re looking to build muscle). Classes such as Pilates and yoga sculpt are also a great way to integrate strength training into your routine. A strength-training session even once a week can support you with toning muscles, strengthening bones, boosting metabolism, managing chronic conditions and strengthening the body as whole. Restoration and rest. Most of you will be happy to hear that balanced fitness includes rest days! It’s essential to let your body recover from intense workouts. You can even enhance rest days by treating your body to a restorative yoga session, often called the dessert of yoga. Incorporating rest and restoration is key to balanced fitness. In fact, lack of rest (over-exercising) can be as damaging as lack of exercise. Exercise addicts, take note! Take a moment to consider which if these areas you might be neglecting. Perhaps you need to integrate more highintensity exercise into your regimen, or maybe restorative yoga and rest need to be priorities. Listen to your body, and do your best to incorporate these five elements of fitness into your life. You might be delighted to find that a balanced fitness regimen keeps your body and mind engaged, inspired, and on track, while helping you feel and look your best.

Black pepper: Piperine is the compound that gives pepper its pungent flavor. Piperine enhances the effects of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric—a fatburning powerhouse I’ll talk about later. One study also suggests that the piperine in black pepper battles fat by blocking the formation of new fat cells. Cardamom: Cardamom is thermogenic (meaning it increases your body heat and speeds up your metabolism), has anti-inflammatory properties, and acts as an antioxidant, cleaning up rogue molecules called free radicals and resisting cellular aging. Cayenne: Capsaicin, the compound that gives chili peppers their heat, helps shrink fatty tissue and lower blood-fat levels. It’s also thermogenic. Cilantro and coriander: Although both names refer to the same plant, cilantro typically refers to the leafy green part of the coriander plant, while coriander is the common

They also contain large quantities of vitamins A and K. Cinnamon: Cinnamon helps regulate blood glucose levels, reducing your cravings and helping you burn fat faster.   Cloves: Cloves help reduce your blood sugar. They also help improve your digestion and optimize your metabolism. continued

Fennel seeds: These are a natural diuretic and a powerful digestive aid. Garlic: Garlic is rich in antioxidants and helps burn belly fat. It also reduces LDL cholesterol, which may lower your risk of heart disease. In addition, it reduces oxidative damage from free radicals, helping fight the aging process. Ginger: Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties, and it’s a powerful gut soother. It also has thermogenic properties that help boost your metabolism.   Green tea: Green tea is loaded with antioxidants and thermogenic properties. What’s more, the EGCG in green tea reduces the amount of fat your body absorbs when you eat.

Cumin: Cumin is a great fat burner that also aids in digestion. One teaspoon can help you burn up to three times more body fat!


Parsley: Parsley’s wealth of vitamin C makes it a great immune-system booster. It’s also an excellent source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that helps protect your body against free-radical damage. It has anti-inflammatory properties, relaxes your muscles, and encourages digestion. Turmeric: Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric. It slows the formation of fatty tissue by affecting the blood vessels needed to form it. Curcumin contributes to lower-body fat and weight loss. It is also an anti-inflammatory agent and lowers insulin resistance.   White pepper: Just as in black pepper, piperine is the compound that give s white pepper its pungent flavor. White pepper also increases the effects of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.

What characterizes an addiction? Quite simply this: you no longer feel that you have the choice to stop. —Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now While there are a range of ways that people break the cycle of addiction, Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and its TwelveStep approach has become one of the most well known, accessible, and affordable ways (it’s free) to get clean and sober, and has come to signify the Western approach to recovery. It’s more than the promise of abstinence, however, that attracts people to the Twelve Steps. “Addiction itself can be a misguided spiritual search,” says Kevin Griffin, author of One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps and cofounder of the Buddhist Recovery Network (BRN). “Many people who don’t see themselves as particularly spiritual find that when they get sober they have some longing in them, and that their addiction, in one form or another, has been a longing for connection. This is a very common experience.”



Break the Cycle: How Yoga and Meditation Can Help Heal Addiction Though there is no spiritual or religious requirement to practice the Twelve Steps, at the heart of any TwelveStep recovery program is the importance of adopting a spiritual approach to life. “The point is that we are willing to grow along spiritual lines,” states the bible of Alcoholics Anonymous (the Big Book). First published in 1939, this main text offers detailed instructions for prayer and, to a lesser degree, meditation, but it doesn’t address, in any significant way, the role that a bodymind connection can play in the healing process. Aruni Nan Futuronsky, a Kripalu Senior Life Coach and Kripalu Yoga teacher who teaches Yoga and Recovery: 12-Step Spirituality, says that the complementary relationship between the Twelve Steps and yoga is a perfect marriage for healing. “Addiction is the ultimate checking out of the moment … Yoga, on and off the mat, is the checking in to reality,” she says. “Brilliantly, yoga and recovery programs work together to cover all bases.” continued

Bodymind practices aside, there are many parallels between the benefits reaped from Eastern practices, like yoga and meditation, and the benefits produced as a result of working the Twelve Steps—self-acceptance for one, the importance of staying in the moment another. Kevin connects Buddhism’s Eightfold Path directly with the Twelve Steps. The First Noble Truth “is that there is suffering. The Second Noble Truth is that the cause of suffering is clinging, or craving,” he says. “And if [meditation] practice works with suffering, with clinging and craving, it’s going to help with addiction. And it does.” The Big Book promises that anyone can get and stay clean if they practice “rigorous honesty.” “Mindfulness,” says Kevin, a member of a Twelve-Step group himself, “is a form of existential honesty. What is true in this moment? Both the Steps and meditation really demand a presence and a willingness to look at what is real and true.” Although he has stopped assuming there is any one way to get and stay sober, Griffin will still encourage attendance at Twelve-Step meetings to students who are initially resistant, and will also refer them to the BRN, which “supports the use of Buddhist teachings, traditions, and practices to help people recover from the suffering caused by addictive

behaviors.” BRN meetings are not affiliated with any Twelve-Step program, but as Griffin points out, they have some similarities to a Twelve-Step meeting. “There’s sharing. There’s someone who leads. You meditate together as a group. [Even] if you don’t want to do Twelve-Step, you still need support.” Nikki Myers, cofounder of Y12SR, the Yoga of 12-Step Recovery, notes that she often comes across recovering addicts who only want to do yoga and not go to TwelveStep meetings. With a history of relapse in her own recovery, Nikki knows what awaits some people who go down that path. “I replaced meetings and [TwelveStep] program work with yoga. The relapse proved the ineffectiveness of that path for me. I had the realization that it takes both, and that brought me to a more integrated recovery approach.” Nikki uses models from the Yoga Sutras, the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, and other sacred texts to help expand their students’ awareness. “A Twelve-Step program approaches addiction at a cognitive level,” says Nikki, “and yoga includes a somatic approach. The combining of the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental, and spiritual dis-ease that it is.” continued

approach to addiction generally falls into what is called cognitive behavioral therapy,” Rolf adds, “which focuses one’s attention on the problem and supports a person in the practice of new behaviors. A yoga or meditation teacher draws one’s attention to the cause of suffering and supports the student in practicing new behaviors. As a result, the Eastern and Western approaches to treatment are almost identical.” Whether it’s found through therapy, the Twelve Steps, a bodymind approach, or a combination of all three, the experience of spiritual well-being seems to be the key to helping many people break the cycle of addiction in their lives. “A longing for something lurks at the bottom of the issue of addiction,” Aruni says, echoing Kevin’s observation. “Aren’t all addicts seekers, wanting something extraordinary, something magical, to soothe them?” And what better magic to add to the path of clean living than yoga and meditation? A person in recovery, or anyone hungry for spiritual connection, is wise to take what Rolf says to heart: “It is my understanding that the Buddha told his students that there is only one mistake you can make on the path to awakening, and that is to stop.” Copyright © 2018 Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health.

A recovering alcoholic sober for nine years who asked to remain anonymous explained her experience of being on the verge of relapse, and how adding the bodymind approach helped her turn a tough corner. “Four years into my recovery,” she says, “I started to question whether or not the Twelve Steps worked at all and if it was even worth it to be sober. I wasn’t drinking, but my addictive tendencies were making the rounds in different areas of my life, so I still felt crazy and restless and unhappy. At the suggestion of a fellow recovering alcoholic, I signed up for a yoga class. In yoga postures, I got introduced to how frenetic and negative my thinking was, and I knew that that’s where the change needed to happen. Abstinence from alcohol wasn’t enough. Eventually I started a meditation practice, which is where I get to both observe and train my mind.” The Eastern perspective on addiction is that it’s not a separate ailment, but rather a condition on the continuum of human suffering. Rolf Gates, master yoga teacher, addictions counselor, and author of Meditations from the Mat,puts it this way: “In the Western medical model, addiction is treated as something outside of the ordinary. In the Eastern approach to suffering, attachment to the pleasant and aversion to the unpleasant is seen as a constant, and so addiction is just an extreme manifestation of an ordinary attachment to the pleasant and aversion to the unpleasant.”


Why Caregivers Must Act as Advocates The responsibility of advocating for older adults in the complicated sphere of medicine often falls on their adult children, who know their parent’s history and present needs better than most. These family caregivers are in a position to see the whole picture, everything from dietary preferences and habits to the subtle ways in which they respond to new medications. You’re not just acting as an extension of your loved one’s interests; you also serve as an extended lens for medical professionals into your parent’s life. By offering busy doctors this uniquely holistic view, you can go a long way to bridge the gap that prevents more personal attention and customized care for your aging parent. At times, you may find yourself having to resuscitate your own confidence and stand up to authority figures in the medical field. But remember that there is a lot more to lose by not keeping that insurance agent on the line, or insisting that the doctor explore alternative treatment options with you, than there is to lose by wasting someone’s time with excessive questioning. E m p ow e r Yo u r s e lf t o B e a n A d v o cat e ! Before doctor appointments, hospital admissions, or interacting with insurance representatives, take some time to collect your own information and to anticipate questions you may want to ask or may have to answer. Remind yourself of the incredible difference you are able to make by bringing heart and emotion into an environment more often run by logic and patterns of care. 30

Enlist a compassionate care team: Be willing to consider whether your aging loved one has the best possible care team, who are seeing your parent as more than just a collection of diagnoses and directives. You are in a position to not only ensure that they receive sufficient medical attention, but also to help lay a path for their holistic well-being and graceful aging. Don’t ever feel as if you are stuck with a single opinion—or a single practitioner. Stay on top of medical record keeping: Take the time to gather and organize all of your parent’s medical information, including history of conditions, treatments, and medications; current medications and dosages; insurance documentation; and contact information for any healthcare providers you might need to reach out to. There are now countless technological platforms that can make this process easy to complete and easy to bring along with you to appointments, so you’re never unprepared. Keep a journal of your daily observations: A record of changes you notice in your loved one, whether positive or negative or no change at all, can be a compelling tool for doctors. Take the time before appointments to gather your thoughts, revisit your recent journal entries, clue into relevant details, and flag those pages, so you can deliver this information efficiently to a care provider without missing any details that could have an impact on their course of care. Don’t be afraid to question medical professionals: It’s certainly possible that the doctor’s word is the

Healthy Living Magazine spring summer 2018 


In fact, there are some questions you should get in the habit of asking regardless of a doctor’s recommendation: What will be the benefit of this treatment for the condition in question? What are the possible side effects and impact on daily life? What are the alternatives if we chose not to pursue this course of care?

Listen to your instincts and intuition: If something you hear during an appointment doesn’t sit right with you, don’t hesitate to ask questions. If, after the appointment, you’re still feeling uncertain, explore why that might be. You may come to find

that your reaction to the doctor’s recommendation comes from your own discomfort around what your aging parent is going through and fears about the unavoidable risks of treatment. Or you may come to find that your instinct was leading you in the right direction (as my mom’s was) and that there is another, better option out there to suit your loved one’s particular needs.


only word in some cases. But, for the sake of optimism and due diligence, always consider your time with doctors as a conversation of possibilities. Be willing to look and think outside the box because the ideal course of treatment may be as unique as your aging parent is. If you do your research and find treatment options that might apply to your loved one’s condition but the doctor hasn’t yet brought it up, don’t be shy about starting a conversation.

When an aging parent’s physical or mental health restricts their voice and they are unable to fortify their own needs, it is an incredible gift to rely on a family member who can see them from the inside out. If you are someone who cares for an aging parent and promotes their well-being where it matters, they are so lucky to have you. It is not an easy or straightforward responsibility. It is even harder to shut off your emotional experience while still advancing your loved one’s authentic, comprehensive interests. Instead, learn to mobilize your emotions and intuition. They may be your greatest asset along this journey.
