well being

+ 100 buzzes
Well being is what everyone strives for....no matter where you're from, what language you speak, man or woman, young or old. Well being can be something to someone and something entirely different to somebody else. Well being allows you to look beyond the petty and inconsequential in order to finally find gratitude for all things that surround you. Everyday is a new opportunity to create your own state of well being.

    To me this means there is a lot of work to be done. Notice the causes primarily: "diseases of despair." I know TREยฎ is a good tool for this even though we don't market it that way. I'm in that group with the highest death rate. I don't have despair though. I hit my bottom in 2011, didn't learn TRE until fall 2013. I now have purpose, connection, and pleasure. That heart disease that the article mentions? Pin that one on stress. My BP has dropped to within normal ranges and I quit taking the meds for it back in 2014. I found my purpose and connectivity possible because of released trauma. I can live in my own skin (rather nicely, thank you), and my health is improved because I down regulated my nervous system and I'm far more active now. .

    #1 Hi Claire!

    Thanks, and thanks for engaging.

    Unfortunately, it says that for now our world is a dangerous place. My very short answer is this: the world does not yet heal it's trauma effectively, so the world has a lot of hurt people in it. From their childhoods. Hurt people, hurt people, and the cycle continues. I believe that the paradigm shift has begun though, and this sort of readiness is part of that. I could speculate, but that would get into a very long answer....

    Leckey - great article. At school we had self defense training. We practiced and practiced until it felt natural. I had first cause to use it about 10 years later. Very effective and it has been ever since. Despite all of this, what does it say about our society when vulnerable people - especially women and girls have to walk down the street on the alert with keys bunched between their fingers?

    Posting again with a great synopsis from my friend and colleague in Australia:

    "A great 20 minute talk, outlining how we disconnect from ourselves and our authenticity when young in order to maintain attachment and how this plays out in ill-health and disease later in life . This for me is the real essence of what TRE and our tremor reflex offers us over the long term, the chance to grow more fully connected, embodied and authentic within ourselves. My only addition to this talk would be to emphasize that emotions are literally about movement, not just staying still and allowing in or pushing away but actually moving towards and away. We don't just suppress emotion, we suppress the movement those emotions were fueling and this is why the restoration of our bodies innate neurogenic movement is so beneficial. Thankfully the polyvagal theory, my own personal experience and David Berceli's constant reminder that safety is in the body, underneath our habitual defensive responses helps me to keep tremoring onward and inward."

    I can echo his experience, and the nature of what we teach: the release of TRE that creates the possibility of an embodied fullness.

    There is some interesting aspects brought out early in this video. First, the aspect of movement brought up by Porges. This speaks to the already lost movement of hunter/gatherers that our neural system had for almost 200,000 years. I would say look at these kids. Does this look like a poor school to you? This is the future. Disconnected from themselves in terms of movement and play, and each other because the interaction is with a device. Not to say this is an all day thing. It is however, already manifested in "tech neck." TRE can speak to this by creating the capacity to and restoring the vagal tone that desires face to face connection. It also brings about self-regulation as a way of life, meaning we can gut used to that desire for being outside, being connected, and being able to moderate our activities to meet our own needs.

    An excellent primer. This explains our Krav Maga lesson 6 taught at Armstrong's Taekwondo-Krav Maga. That lesson was on psychological reactions to a violent encounter.

    Notice also that Porges says much of our physical disease is that of the autonomic nervous system, which he touches on at the very end.

    Tremoring corrects a lot of these maladies: it will restore the vagal tone, which in turn restores the "rest and digest" program, which down-regulates the activity above the diaphragm, and up-regulates the the activity below it. It has demonstrated clear effects on those related illnesses.

    This fits right in with current research that attributes heart attacks to ANS dysfunction. "a deficiency in the parasympathetic nervous system" If we think about it we are aware of the personality that is prone to having a heart attack - someone in the throes of intense sympathetic responses

    "Trauma is not an external event, it's an internal dynamic - it's what happens inside you as a result of the event. Trauma is the loss of connection to the self - to your body, your emotions, and your essence." - Gabor Matรฉ
    I agree completely. Inside you not meaning inside your brain. It means your body as well. It accumulates, as does chronic stress that becomes traumatizing to the organism, hence, traumatic stress. Trauma can be healed.

    It works in Australia, and it works here. This is what I teach, and it is amazingly powerful. It cured my PTSD, and with a little re-patterning, my C-PTSD. That means it released the anxiety, the dissociation, the flashbacks, the hyper-vigilance, the emotional numbness.

    Think of the stress of childhood abuse/neglect, domestic violence, secondary trauma, car accidents war, natural disaster, atrocities, criminal acts. TREยฎ will help immensely. "no drugs, no hospitals, no positive thinking," and no appointments.

    If trauma or stress are the problem, your body already has the mechanism to release and/or heal it. TRE is a tool you can use to release it, to heal the trauma, and re-organize the body. Stress definitely becomes physical. It indeed, is primarily so.

    Great blog, @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.. Thank you for sharing your experience and for drawing me into mindfulness. I don't believe it is a coincidence that I am reading this today after having mindfulness mentioned to me in the past 24 hours after publishing a poem that I wrote. Your post gave me pause to reflect on how and where my best mindfulness occurs. It's usually on my evening workout where I traverse the terrain for about 2 miles. The fresh air is rejuvenating and freeing simultaneously. It enables me to decompress, destress and find a bit of balance. I definitely notice the difference when it is absent from my routine as my mind is more cluttered and my thoughts more anxious. But I also find my zen in writing and in the uninhibited laughter I experience with my friends and family. I get wanting to "empty" your brain. There have been nights where my mind doesn't turn off and it does cause restlessness. That's when I am slowly learning to pick up a book, read, and relax. It seems to be working and I need to practice it more. Thank you for sharing this and for opening your thoughts to us.

    What a lovely blog @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.. I think it's cool that you were able to attend a seminar on mindfulness. I think for myself, mindfulness comes to me in different forms. Music takes my mind on a journey that is hard to describe, the scents of the woods after the rain, flower gardens, and I can't leave out my photography. Photography takes me away from all of life's stressors and it brings to life different senses when I upload, view and many times edit. As for people, I have to say I really try to keep in mind that everyone has struggles we don't know about. I find it's easier for some to share their struggles and for others- it may be way too painful or they are just that private. I try to remember that say the clerk who is waiting on me in a store and might be cranky towards me really isn't angry with me, maybe someone ahead of me gave her a hard time, maybe she has a sick loved one at home she's worried about and on the list could go. When someone is mean to me (if it's not too crude lol) I honestly try hard to say something nice to them and people would be surprised how many people seem to smile after they realize others do care. It's great to be mindful of others too. Thanks for tagging me @Ken Boddie!

    @Ken Boddie thanks for the tag. Now I need to get a cat outta the bag;) I have had my share of silence, i must now exercise some poetic licence;)

    Allow me a few words on awareness and mindfulness. Awareness is the door, for perception to receive its guests - the sensations, courtesy the senses. Meditation is the stilling of the senses - in a neutral, quiet environment, that automatically clears the mind of its thoughts. You are then aware of only being aware. An emptied / empty mind is a great medium, primed for the highest perception the moment our senses are deployed through acts of intense concentration. Concentration is often done to visualise something when it is not accompanied by physical action. When you visualise with the greatest of clarity and detail, you create. You enable the thought to become a thing. You materialise that into your life in just a matter of some time. But then again, going back, Awareness is always the first condition. The more aware / mindful you are, the higher the quality of meditation or concentration, and the greater the success. ;)

    A very succinct talk that brings up the oft forgotten Freeze option that is part of the Fight/Flight/Freeze paradigm.

    Our society conditions us to freeze by wanting us to ignore our bodies right from childhood, when we now mediate kids for fidgeting.....

    I love the way she phrased it: "Fitness for Nervous System" which is essentially come down from the mind and get into the body and move it and notice it.

    Our bodies are correct in constantly asking for movement and our rules of 'order' -stay still - are the problem.

    #13 You've highlighted the very thin line between anger and danger, @debasish majumder. I think that is why we find it easy to want to ignore these feelings, bury them, and pretend everything is fine. It is incredibly hard to express anger in a constructive way, and yet, learning this skill is pretty crucial for living a contented and meaningful life.

    Knowing the things that draw our ire - the things we will not tolerate - helps us navigate life in a direction that will ultimately bring us to serenity, while ignoring anger is very likely to dump us right into situations that trigger the emotion in ever-escalating cycles.

    Like so many things in life, the way to learn how to deal constructively with anger is to practice and @Cyndi wilkins and I are finding this buddy system to be a fun, fruitful, and sometimes profound way to express feelings, understand life-long patterns, and start to change the way we feel so that we move on, full of hope, curiosity, and delight.

    As a manual therapist by training, I am more accustomed to using therapeutic touch to interpret the signals that the physical body communicates to me. In that way I can assist my client in the release of their pain through soft tissue manipulation. This was more of a cerebral experience where I really had to trust my intuition to guide me ...@Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich and I were both challenged to engage ALL of our senses...particularly sight, sound and body language, in an effort to tap into the "emotion" trying to make its way to the surface. Once we did that, we could have a little "playdate" with it...give it expression in a supportive environment where it can be transformed through the eyes of others as they reflect back to us the lessons to be learned from our collective experiences.
    These "patterns of behavior" are inherent within all of us. As society has taught us to bury our emotions like an unnecessary appendage, it is high time we did a little excavating of those old bones and shed new light on how we express ourselves effectively.

    #1 Of course, you picked out my favorite sentence, @Ali Anani. And added so much more by extending it to the very important concept of SELF-NEGOTIATION. I actually think that is the core of learning to be a happy and well-adjusted human being.

    Self-negotiation is learning about ourselves and how we react and questioning which parts of our actions and habits may be due to factors way beyond something as innocuous as a comment by a stranger that causes us to lash out in ways harmful to our own bodily equilibrium and meant to throw someone else off of their balance, regardless of who else might be inflicted unintended damage.

    That sort of behavior solves nothing, generates nothing but hostility in return and actually becomes an ever increasing cycle since the actual wrong never had a chance to be rationally discussed.

    I think the first step to being able to find the insight in anger is learning how other people process anger in ways that actually allow the emotion to resolve whatever situation first brought the feelings of hostility into focus.

    Great self-care, Leckey! I often get intuitive urges just to go and lay on our driveway at night. I live in suburbia so we don't see a lot of stars. However, I find there's a refreshing energy outside at night. The weird thing is I never do it. It's like a hidden self-sabotage. Maybe now that I've shared it on BeBee, I'll have helped myself to actually enjoy doing this simple activity.

    I haven't yet felt the call of the asphalt, @Leckey Harrison. I love the silence of a foggy, dewey, rainy 5am - walking with my dog before anyone else gets outside.

    I have been pondering the joy of voices myself. And how we underestimate what they are capable of, because we tend to take them for granted.

    Bravo @Leckey Harrison! Powerful and moving. Not only what you wrote, but how you wrote it. At the risk of sounding melodramatic, your writing is visceral.

    Kudos, Leckey, on a beautifully written buzz. You make some excellent points which we should all consider in today's hyper-paced 24/7 mobile, digital and virtual Information Age. Sometimes, as the saying goes, silence speaks volumes.

    This is about addiction. This is about escaping. This is about not being present. This is about pain, being hurt. We need to heal this hurt. Trauma healing is the answer and TREยฎ is a phenomenal tool for that. We can also adjunct with societal approaches that don't stigmatize or criminalize the users stuck on drugs, be they prescription drugs or otherwise.

    Get out and play, or dance. Climb a mountain, or big hill nearby, or hike a long trail. Sleep outside. Learn something new that requires your body to be involved, and get good at it. Don't watch life, live it. Leckey Harrison

    #3 I would add to that that as I climber, and the O2 got thinner, and I got winded, I could hear my krav classmates cheering me on. That was a huge help to me. My brain had a previous experience to refer to.

    Exactly why #NoLongerVirtual was born! You can read about climbing a mountain, you can watch a video about it, but if you're not feeling the wind on your face and smelling the pine, you're missing 90% of the picture!

    I saw a rather snide comparison of the most popular books 40 years ago to the coloring books of today.

    But play - unstructured & joyful being - is one of the keys to what is killing us, in the mental realm.

    In the physical realm, we need to do more stuff - and not see movement as what occurs for 45 minutes, 3 times a week.

    That's very insightful. Perhaps that's why video games are so popular today: not many opportunities present themselves to play with other people, in a non-virtual setting. Thanks for sharing.

    Some sobering statistics. The body has an innate mechanism to release stress from the body. It won't change your behavior, but will lay the foundation for you to do so. I teach people how to self-induce and self-regulate that mechanism.

    A great stress reliever (not to be confused with releaser), a great way to get in shape, and great way to learn self-defense. One of the best in fact. Highly recommended, for those who want to "grab" back with more a more neutralizing capability. Leckey Harrison
