  • Your Programming and Your Negativity Bias

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | July 26, 2017

    negativity-bias-pensiveBefore the age of 2, different attachment styles are encoded into us. When we’re loved, nurtured and supported, we’re off to a healthy start as far as how we feel about and handle ourselves. We can have a stronger sense of self, and can feel more confident and trusting in others and ourselves. When we’re raised in an environment where the love and attention was sporadic, uncertain and/or dangerous and threatening, however, we move into our adult lives with more anxiety and fear. We may not be as trusting, may over- or under-compensate to feel loved and accepted, and may struggle with a healthy sense of self.

    Are we stuck with this programming if we had a rough start? Read more

  • Eat Your Brussels Sprouts! They Could Prevent Cancer

    by Paula Gallagher | July 25, 2017

    Brussels-sproutsIndole 3 carbinol (I3C), a substance found in some vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, etc.), and its metabolite di-indolylmethane (DIM) exhibit protective powers against some types of cancer, including breast cancer. These substances help support healthy estrogen metabolism by the liver, thereby potentially decreasing the risk of estrogen-sensitive cancers.

    Factors such as lifestyle, exposure to viruses, stress, air pollution, and diet all play important roles in the overall risk of getting cancer. Various studies have shown, though, that a high intake of cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts has been associated with lower risk of several types of cancer. Why? Read more

  • SOS for PCOS: Diet

    by Paula Gallagher | July 18, 2017

    vegetables-for-PCOSMany women experience problems with their periods. But for many women, the problems can be caused by an increasingly common condition called polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Last week we looked at possible causes and symptoms of PCOS.

    PCOS is characterized by poor insulin function, with elevated insulin secretion reinforcing the cycle of hormone imbalance and anovulation (prolonged menstrual periods). Women who are overweight or obese are at increased risk of insulin resistance and prediabetes, but even thin women with PCOS have been shown to suffer from reactive hypoglycemia, where initial insulin oversecretion leads to rebound low blood sugar levels.

  • Rewire the Brain to Bounce Back from Setbacks Faster and Easier

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | July 17, 2017

    meditationAccording to Linda Graham, psychotherapist and author of Bouncing Back, resilience is: “The capacity to respond to pressures and tragedies quickly, adaptively and effectively.”

    So why do we need to be resilient?

    It’s inevitable that in our lifetimes, circumstances will come along that throw us off track. We can lose a job… or lose a loved one. We can argue with a coworker… or discover we’ve been betrayed at the deepest level by someone we trusted. We can be struggling with finances… or receive news that forever changes our lives in an instant. Read more
