  • The (Very) Simplified Science of Changing Your Thoughts to Change Your Life

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | March 27, 2017

    thinkingChange isn’t easy, and that holds true for even the changes we may be so eager to see. So, what holds us back? What prevents change even when we’re working hard to make it happen? The answer has a lot to do with our “programming.” It’s a subject that fascinates me and one of the people who explains it so well is Joe Dispenza. Dr. Joe, who wrote Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself (among other great books), explains how to change your brain in order to change your life.

    First, it’s important to know the parts at work here. We have our physical brain, which is the physical and tangible organ housed within your head. Read more

  • Taking Steps to Conquer Your Fear

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | March 13, 2017

    fear-thoughtfulWhat is fear? According to Google, fear is “an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat." But as many of us know, fear is a lot more than an unpleasant emotion. Fear is the thing that holds us back, that prevents us from achieving our potential, that keeps us firmly rooted in an unhealthy place we want to move away from. So why are we so afraid of overcoming something that is clearly so detrimental to our physical, mental, emotional or spiritual well-being – if not all of the above? The truth may be a little hard to swallow. Read more

  • Music is a Natural Antidepressant

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | March 6, 2017

    music-listeningMusic has transformative powers. For centuries people have used music to express themselves and lift their spirits. The great news is that music still holds its miraculous mystique.

    Research has shown that music releases neurotransmitters, chemicals that are released from nerve endings which actually “transmit” signals, via amino acids, from one nerve ending to another. So imagine dominoes – once one is kicked-off, the others follow. Dopamine is one of the neurotransmitters that ignites the reward and pleasure centers of our brain, and the right song can give your body a dose. And as such, music is a natural antidepressant.

    You know how you need a good cry every once in a while? Sad music can help release sad emotions, getting them up and out. Many of us can all relate to a great “break-up” song that allowed us to mourn the loss of a love through those free-flowing tears. And there’s nothing wrong with that – just be sure not to use the sad music to stay in that place for too long. Read more

  • Health Benefits of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy

    by Paula Gallagher | February 13, 2017

    lavender-fieldThe health benefits of essential oils are many, including aromatherapy, which is the use of essential oils from plants to promote a feeling of well-being. Although scent is a key component in the use of essential oils, some of them can also be applied directly to the skin for use in healing or in a massage, or used for other direct health benefits.

    Essential oils are concentrated extracts taken from the roots, leaves, seeds or blossoms of plants. Each contains its own mix of active ingredients, and this mix determines what the oil is used for. Some oils are used to promote physical healing – for example, to treat swelling or fungal infections. Read more

  • Heart Health and Positivity

    by Paula Gallagher | February 8, 2017

    IMG_4209Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. The American Heart Association (AHA) estimates that about 2,200 Americans die of cardiovascular disease (CVD) each day. This is an average of one death every 39 seconds. Stroke causes about one of every 18 U.S. deaths.

    Diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and medicine are the usual recommendations to ward off or treat heart disease. But more and more research shows that heart health and positivity are linked and that having a good attitude can go a long way toward reducing your risk of heart attacks and stroke. Read more
