We have grown up in a world with an increasing disconnection between body and mind. Your body actually knows a lot about you and your needs, so when you ignore it, you lose out.
We’re trained to watch for what’s wrong and to criticise in order to fix problems. But, we’re not trained to watch for what’s right and to praise in order to improve on what’s good. What does this obsession mean and how can we make it better?
Road rage, an irrational excess of anger on the roads, means that some people lose control and react out of all proportion to mistakes on the road. If you suffer from this, what can you do to start fixing it?
How do we choose the boundaries that we set? Are they too loose or too tight? It’s not an easy act to balance, but there are some guidelines to help.
Permission is the opposite of a boundary. A boundary is a restriction on what you allow others or yourself to do; permission is what you do permit others or yourself to do — in other words, a right. Whilst you need boundaries, you also need permissions.
