Mindful focusing

by Dr. Randy

I want to share a technique for solving a problem with a unique method that may be helpful to you. You may have a personal problem and thinking about it, or weighing pros and cons, has not led you to an answer. Your body may know the solution and there is a technique for accessing this information. The method called Focusing, is part of a broader technique that identifies buried feelings that may not be conscious or known to us. It is a technique that accesses a “felt-sense,” something that our body is aware of that lies below consciousness. Try this guided meditation if you like and see if it is helpful to you. Click here.

Wanting things to be different

by Dr. Randy

Not everything goes as we planned or imagined things should be.
Sometimes we need to simply recognize the way things are and observe that.
We need to set up the conditions for success and adapt as things unfold. Extra stress comes when we want things to be other than they are.
You should be aware that we are in Scorpio now (until Nov 21), which is a dark time, a time of death of old ideas and a rebirth of a new perspective. We can become aware that things may not be going as we imagined. Just be with that. Everything is constantly changing. Just stay with it right now and watch your feelings about it.

Here is an attitude you can try:

Not knowing – how things will turn out
Stay aware – of how things are right now
Take action – to make things better

Trust your insights, your strengths, and your path.

Wellness Program

by Dr. Randy

Are you promoting your health in the best possible ways? It is helpful to periodically review your health plan. Look at specific areas of your lifestyle including your diet, sleep patterns, exercise, and relaxation. Review how you are treating health problems including medications and holistic care. And review your spiritual practices: relaxation, exposure to nature, and meditation/mindfulness.

Some of these personal practices are preventive, and some may be directed at problems, but the line between prevention and treatment can blur because many things that you do can serve both functions. Each of us can move in a direction of better health, despite the inevitability of aging for adults and our lack of control over some areas of our children’s lives.

Let’s talk about each of the areas that effect health and wellness in a little more detail. I have summarized them below, but I am happy to arrange a time to personalize a wellness program for you that considers your unique health patterns, your goals and priorities, and your busy life.

Holistic Healthcare

A range of holistic treatment forms have the ability to address imbalances and cure symptoms. These treatments include targeted nutritional supplements, homeopathic medicines, and Chinese and western herbal formulas. The goal of an individualized treatment plan is to increase the overall level of health and treat specific disease symptoms.

Diet

Diet adjustments and recommendations need to consider individual lifestyle, food preferences, food sensitivities, and cultural styles. Of course, a whole foods, natural diet is best, with a minimum of processed foods free of artificial chemicals. Different individuals have varying needs for specific amounts of protein, fat, and carbohydrates and other specific nutrients. So an individualized eating program is necessary for long term health.

Exercise

There is no question that an exercise program is necessary to maintain healthy bodily functions, ensure good sleep, and foster mental focus and emotional well-being. For some people this may involve daily walking, and for others a more rigorous program of cardio, aerobics, sports, resistance training, yoga, or exercise classes. Children and adults need to keep their bodies moving.

Sleep

Adequate and quality sleep are not always available to everyone. Young children wake parents, worries occur in the middle of the night, or some people have difficulty calming thoughts to fall asleep. There are excellent supplements and techniques to solve sleep problems and ensure good rest for alertness and energy the following day.

Mental Health

Relaxation training, meditation, and specific methods for focusing on the present moment are some of the techniques that can help achieve a more peaceful mental state. In our modern lifestyle where many people are bombarded by stressful situations, electromagnetic radiation, and a rushed, fast pace of life it is essential to take some time to slow down and become more centered. Getting out into nature has tremendous health benefits. But all of these activities require a time commitment and scheduling these into the daily flow of life.

Develop a Wellness Plan

I would love to help you develop your individualized wellness program. I am available for local office visits in the SF Bay Area or by phone or video consultation for those living at a distance. Let’s get you on track to create a higher level of well-being and health. I am happy to be your partner in creating and maintaining a wellness program that fits your life.
