Understanding How We REACT in a Time of Crisis

I read an article recently about how and why we overreact. It was penned by Dr. Art Frenz, a wonderful clinical psychologist who practices in upstate New York. Dr. Frenz specializes in stress management, your psychological fitness, self-calming skill and dealing with loss and grief. As I have seen dozens upon dozens of reports of toilet paper to bleach, frozen pizzas to mushrooms, flying off the grocery store shelves, I wondered how you can tell if we are over reacting, reacting or underreacting. What is the difference? What pushes us to either extreme and what tools do we need to fully understand how we react to this current global crisis. In this episode, Dr. Frenz and I speak about the three parts of reacting: feelings, thinking and behaviour what happens when our reaction time is shortened why our feelings should never be ignored why our feelings are never wrong how to self-sooth ourselves at this time Dr. Frenz also spoke about the Serenity prayer and the wisdom we can all pull from it. I have it here below for you. God, grant me the serenity accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference. To learn more about Dr. Frenz, visit his website at www.artfrenzphd.com.  Wishing you love, light and serenity. - Marla To join Marla's Wellness Insiders' email group, you can follow the link here.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

COVID-19 and Your Wellness Plan when Emergencies Hit

You see people stocking up on masks and toilet paper, as they await the latest news reports, deciding if our current state with the COVID-19 pandemic will impact their work, their family. We are all currently in a time where our comfort levels with safety and security are being tested. Our emotions are on a roller coaster of sorts as fear - even if we don't want to admit it - creeps in and out of our day. Although we can easily feel helpless, there is so much we can do. In this episode we look at the four things that are adding to our global response and our individual response to this pandemic, heightening our reaction and the decisions we are making. This week I was actually scheduled to talk to you about our root energy centre, which speaks to our safety need and our fulfillment of security. We then go into my 7-step self wellness plan that you can start putting in place today to help you mentally, emotionally and physically move through this health crisis as well as any other emergency that you might experience. At the end of this episode, you'll find a special meditation I put together for you. I mentioned in the episode that I would link you to the Art of Hugging episode I taped last month, so here you go.  Do feel free to like and share this episode and subscribe to the show.

Your Love Handles & What is Really Happening Around Your Belly

"Marla, I need help working on my belly". "Hummm, okay", I say. "I've tried this workout and this new diet and nothing helps. What can I do?" This is a common question I get. In honest, the only thing that will help you is to understand what is actually going on in and around your beautiful belly, the amazing story it is telling you, and the SUPER IMPORTANT role those Goddess/God-like love handles actually play. In this episode, you and I chat about your relationship with your belly region, the 4 main reasons our intestines tend to distend and swell. I made up this handy little acronym "D.A.N.G. Girl" to help us remember. Then we go into the only one way that you can work to diminish your love handles if that is your goal, how you DON'T want to get rid of it (spoiler: it's through dieting), and the only one way to prevent additional accumulation of tissue to that lovely midriff of yours. I hope after listening in to this episode you can look at your amazing bellies in an entirely new light. Every glorious cell of you serves a purpose, and the story of what the adipose tissue or fat cells that surround our digestive organs (we just think of them as our love handles or our beer bellies), is amazing and one to be in AWE of.  You're gorgeous. Your beautiful. You're perfect. Listen in and let me prove it to you. Love and light, Sweet Soul - Marla Oh, and I mentioned I would give you the link to my Gluten Episode here, so here you go.  To join Marla's Wellness Insiders' email group, you can follow the link here.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Wisdom from Your Fairy Yogi Godmother, Flossie Park

What do you need to know? What are the lessons you need to hear to get you through, to help you understanding what you are dealing with right now. Well, I don't have all the answers, but I know our Fairy Yogi Godmother does. Years ago I met one of the most profound wise souls on the planet. Unbeknownst to me, this crossing with Flossie Park would change everything for me. As a special Valentine's Day gift to you, I invited Flossie back on to the show all the way from her home in Encinitas, California to talk love, self-love, relationship and where we get it all wrong. I hope this conversation leaves you as inspired, motivated and positive as it did for me.

Willpower and Understanding Your Indulgences

What if we had it all wrong? What if our thoughts and beliefs on what willpower had nothing to do with what is really going on intuit beautiful mind and heart of your. In this episode you and I talk willpower, but first I need to take you on a little journey to your power energy center, your solar plexus, your digestive center because in order for us to talk about YOUR amazing willpower we need to understand where exactly it comes from (yep, willpower is born in a physical place in your body). I then break apart the three factor involving your willpower Power: Are you getting power, strength, feeding that fire we all have in us? Are you giving that fire what it needs? Will: How many decision did you make today were actually yours, decision that you WANTED, desired? You need to have a boatload of will each and every day, or else that elusive willpower falls away from us. This was a great section to talk about motivation, so we spent some time looking at why most of us are NOT motivated and what it means. Your will and your motivation are linked at the hip. Environment: I don't care how strong or powerful you are, how you have your own free will glistening around you, girl, if you walk by that fav shoe store of yours 17 times a day, at some point it is going to happen, and now you have a 8th pair of black slings that you don't need. Here we talked about how you only have so many "Nos" in you every day. There is only so many times you can say no. It is a number. You have one. When you get to your daily limit, guess what, the next time you were going to say NO, you will say YES. So we need to talk about your environment and what we cando to ensure that the main areas you spend your time in each day (your bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, office, the car, whatever), are environments that fully support your growth, your healing and your epic dreams. I tapped this episode the day after Kobe Bryant and his daughter tragically passed away, so we talked about grieving and what sense we can make out of all of this.  I also touched on a message I received from a client about Stevia. That discussion got a little heated. In the episode, I did mention a couple links I would put here in the show notes for you. They are a few of my past episodes on understanding your cravings, determining your mind/body type and what you need to know when you are grieving, so here you go..... Episode 11: What Your Cravings Are Telling You Episode 8: What is Your Mind/Body Type Episode 41: Dealing with Death with Kenlyn Kolleen Episode 43: Saying Goodbye - Dealing with a Sudden Loss Love and light, Sweet Yogis - Marla Oh, and if you want to get in touch and let me know what you thought of today's episode, you can always find me on Instagram @marla.barr or on my site at www.marlabarr.com To join Marla's Wellness Insiders' email group, you can follow the link here.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Moon Cycle & Your Period

Well, if I told you that a 30-minute podcast episode about menstruation and the moon we would talk about Asian elephants, Alice in Wonderland and Diet Coke, would you believe me? Ha! Well, that is exactly what we did. This truly is one of my FAVOURITE wellness topics, mostly because no one has ever told us the truth about menstruation.  We are not told about its link to our health, our emotions, our crazy Goddess capabilities. We are not told what is really going on and how to harness this awesome magically, biological tool. And you don't hear how and why this is linked to the moons cycle and what that means. This entire episode came about when a friend asked me about her daughter's cycle and what some changes meant. They mean A LOT, so let's dive in as in this episode we cover: why our cycles match the moon's and it's scientific significance the three types of moon cycle goddess you might be how to determine which one you are what each of the three types tell you about your mental, emotional and physical health as well as the season in your life you may occupy what is going on when you are transitioning from one moon type to another Then I chat about iron and calcium as this is also something that comes up often when talking about women' health. I go into . . . why we are iron deficient the role that calcium plays in this deficiency why we are adding WAY to much calcium to our diet what most multivitamins on the market are tricking you and, what is the real culprit in the whole calcium iron problem. Then I spend a bit of time explaining the oat coconut milk that I make at home (cost a grand total of $0.58 for a 2L/half gallon) and my super slick 2-ingredient iron hack that I use it for. Please feel free to share this episode with any menstruating Goddesses in your life. I wish this episode could be mandatory listening for every crazy awesome woman out there, every 12-year-old girl, every person that knows and loves women. I tell you, once I started to really understand the full wellness picture of what menstruation mean, it was a total game-changer in how I looked at my awesome, amazing self - just like you should, too ;) If you have questions or comments on this episode, please visit me on Instagram at @marla.barr  At the top of this episode, I invited you to my new super cool VIP Wellness Program.

Saying Goodbye - How To Get Through a Sudden Loss

Over the summer, I lost my Dad. There was no warning. No real hints as what was to come. He sent me a text the day before: "Talk to you soon, Sweetheart. Drive home safely".

Unfortunately, we have all had to deal with someone we love deeply leaving us way too soon, totally out of the blue. In this episode, I share with you my journey through grief, loss, and healing as I share a few tips on what helped bring me solace during this time.

Grief and loss impact us all, whether we have lost a close family member, friend, colleague or dearly loved pet.

An Athlete's Story of Brain Injuries, Working with Kids & Yoga with Derek Pang

As a mixed martial artist, fighting was nothing new to Derek Pang. Competition, being physically at his peak, and always being ready for whatever was thrown at him, was just part of an elite athlete's life. But when a series of concussions followed by a traumatic brain injury left Derek in a coma almost 10 years ago, his fight took a fateful turn that changed everything. In this episode, Derek and I talk about dealing with traumatic events, what we can learn from them, how he rose above the scars his assailants left, how forgiveness was pivotal in his healing, yoga's role in this path back, and where he is right now with his new program, The Hero Project working with children in schools. Here are a couple of links to the people and projects Derek and I spoke about: Derek Pang's website, on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter Onnit Academy The Hero Project To join Marla's Wellness Insiders' email group, you can follow the link here.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Getting Million Dollar Skincare (for pennies)

We all want healthy, glowing skin and now just now, but for every day of our lives, what were do we turn? $200 bottles of under-eye cream? Expensive medical procedures? There is something WAY better and infinitely cheaper. In this episode, I go into my top 7 skincare must-have products I use every day (spoiler alert: you probably have them all in your kitchen right now), and my 7-step daily routine to having glowing skin. I also go into why our skin health matters, what it is trying to tell us when we are having skin issues, and looking into the mechanics of pores and how they work. Thanks to our episode sponsor Haven Mattresses and Urban Cultivator.

What do you need?

Are you getting your needs met? It is okay if the answer is "no" (It just means you are human and a work-in-progress like all the rest of us). But let's work on this together today with a little trick I call the Teacup Model. In today's episode, you and I will work together on the determine what each of our daily needs are (each one of those needs we will be visualizing as a teacup sitting in front of us). Once we put names to each of those cups, I'll go into what happens when those cups don't get filled, how to get back on track, and what are the 3 big categories that they fall into.

Lessons from Depression

Depression. Feeling that things are just not right, not clicking. Being in a dark season where you question everything: what you are doing, who you are, what next. Have you ever been there to that place? Are you there now?  This past winter was hard for me. I fell from the normal healthy place I mentally and physically reside in and I went there: being lost, not knowing which way was up, doubting myself. In this episode, I take an honest look of how I got there, what I learned, and what I am doing now to take those valuable lessons with me to my next season of life.
