#034: Gratitude & The Five Minute Journal with UJ Ramdas

In this episode we talk about the simplest, most effective thing YOU can do everyday to be happier with The Five Minute Journal co-founder UJ Ramdas. It's been proven over and over again that shifting your focus to the positive can dramatically improve your happiness. The key is consistency. This journal has been created by combining the proven elements of positive psychology that can make all the difference in your life.

We talk to UJ {from Bali} about how the journal was created, why you need a toothbrush for your mind, how important routines are, walking meetings, positive psychology, how to solve the problem of a scary blank page when journaling, why you should never go to sleep without a request to your subconscious mind, and how + when a gratitude practice can change your life.

S H O W N O T E S:

We are taking a summer sabbatical the month of August and don't have much going on....on purpose. Hope you're all enjoying your summer so far!

UJ Ramdas is passionate about bringing together practical psychology and business to create a better world. With a background in Behavioural science, Marketing and Hypnosis, he's consulted with (several hundred) clients, bringing them from confusion to clarity. Currently based out of Toronto, Canada, he's a big fan of the wilderness, eastern meditative practices and a good cup of tea.

The 5 Min Journal is the simplest, most effective thing you can do everyday to be happier.

We love this quote by John C Maxwell {one of the quotes in the 5 Min Journal}: “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine."

It's this idea of really cultivating your happiness...that yeah there are those people that seem to just always be happy but it really needs to be something that's practiced. 

"Never go to sleep without a request of your subconscious mind" ~ Thomas Edison

  7. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
