Tapping is an easy, powerful way to shift your internal situation. We can't control  events or other people, but we can control how we think and feel about -- and respond to -- those external factors.


Sometimes it is difficult to shift thoughts or feelings, which is why tapping might be your new best friend.


This is one way you might be able to re-boot your body-mind system. 


Try it.

James Corden response about Fat Shaming

Late Late host James Cordon responds to Bill Maher's video-torial that "fat-shaming should make a comeback."


The publisher of this site notes that comments like this by Maher make the work of health educators more difficult.


The best, most sustainable way to help others heal and improve their quality of life is not through shame. The best path is through respect, empathy, connection, genuine caring, and friendship.


Also, obesity is not always the result of "overeating and laziness." There are many other factors in play, such as life-saving drugs that cause (sometimes painful) bloating and weight gain; tumors that may be difficult to remove;  and undiagnosed issues such as thyroid dysfunction.
