A Mantra of Insanity

Posted by Justin Smith on

Oh my gosh..January 1st...new year new me...a mantra of insanity. I am all for someone using the 1st of January to pull their head out of their ass to get their shit together.

How did we go from being free a child, to an entrapped adult, countless dreams and visions to cluttered minds and anxiety? Self limiting beliefs. Thats right, we flood our mind with self...

Building Healthy Behaviors and Positivity

Posted by Justin Smith on

We think of building healthy behaviors or  positivity as a matter of will. We seek knowledge and goal setting skills to make the desired changes. With determination and discipline, we may succeed, at least for days or even months—but more than often, we fall off course. Why? Mostly, because you didn’t actually want to accomplish your short minded goal in the first place. The common assumption is that our day-to-day decisions are conscious choices. But our ability to make informed decisions that control our behavior is fundamentally limited. Psychology and neuroscience suggest that most of our actions are born out of habit—they...
