[Thanksgiving] Gratitude as a Daily Mindfulness Practice
Julie Potiker
Author, Mindfulness Expert
Mindful Methods for Life
“When you wake up in the morning, write down one or more things about your life that you are grateful for. Notice times when you feel joy during the day. Take in the good mental state for a couple of breaths, allowing the mental state to wire into a neural trait. Before you go to bed at night, write down one or more things that happened that day that you’re grateful for or that you enjoyed.”
Potiker, an author and mindfulness expert, is an attorney who began her serious study and investigation of mindfulness after graduating from the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program at the University of California, San Diego. She was trained by Kristin Neff, Christopher Germer and UCSD as a Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher. She went on to study with Rick Hanson, becoming a graduate of his Positive Neuroplasticity Training Professional Course. Potiker also completed Brené Brown’s Living Brave Semester. Now she shares these and other mindfulness techniques with the world through her Mindful Methods for Life trainings and her new book, “Life Falls Apart, but You Don’t Have To: Mindful Methods for Staying Calm In the Midst of Chaos.” She holds a B.G.S. from the University of Michigan and a J.D. from George Washington University.

Are Ghosts of Christmas Past Haunting Your Holidays?
Dr. Bradley Nelson
Holistic Physician and Author
“Do you ever feel like you are struggling under the weight of something you can’t quite put your finger on? Perhaps your life is not turning out how you had hoped. Perhaps your attempts to form lasting relationships never seem to work out. You may wish that certain events in your past had never occurred, but feel powerless to move beyond them. To overcome holiday depression and anxiety and your ‘Ghosts of Christmas Past’: 1) List your blessings: People suffering from depression tend to focus on the negative things in their lives rather than counting their blessings. One of the most important things you can do is to make a list every day of the things in your life that are actually good. 2) Move to beat depression and stress: Exercise as simple as getting outside and walking is the natural, drug-free way to combat depression. Moving your body throughout the day burns away stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol that can otherwise linger in your system for up to 24 hours, damaging your immune system and organs. The secret reason exercise is so good for you is that it burns those hormones out of the blood and prolongs your existence on the planet. 3) Discover and release emotional baggage: People can free themselves of a major underlying cause of anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, and other forms of mental illness by learning to release trapped emotions.”
Dr. Nelson is a holistic chiropractic physician, a medical intuitive, and one of the world’s foremost experts in the emerging fields of bioenergetic medicine and energy psychology. His bestselling book, “The Emotion Code,” is helping people all over the world to improve their lives easily and quickly. Users of “The Emotion Code” have found freedom from emotional problems such as depression and anxiety, as well as physical problems including fatigue, pain and disease. A key element of “The Emotion Code” is removing emotional energies that have clustered around the heart, interfering with one’s ability to find love and success. Dr. Nelson has coined this cluster of emotions the “Heart-Wall,” and it has been called “the most important discovery in the history of energy medicine.” He has trained thousands of practitioners worldwide to help people overcome unresolved anger, depression, anxiety, loneliness and other negative emotions and the physical symptoms associated with them.

The Rebound Healing Power of Group Intention
Lynne McTaggart
International bestselling author
“At some point, I began to acknowledge that the group-intention experience itself was causing big changes in people: changing individual consciousness, removing a sense of separation and individuality, and placing members of the group in what can only be described as a state of ecstatic unity. With each experiment, no matter how large or small, I observed the same group dynamic, a dynamic so powerful and life-transforming that it enabled individual miracles to take place. They healed long-standing serious health conditions. They mended estranged relationships. They discovered a renewed life purpose or cast off workaday jobs in favor of a career that was more adventurous or fulfilling. I recorded hundreds if not thousands of these instantaneous miracles in participants’ lives.”
McTaggart is one of the central voices in the new consciousness movement. She is the award-winning author of seven books, including worldwide bestsellers “The Field,” “The Intention Experiment,” “The Bond” and her latest, “The Power of Eight,” now available in paperback. She also serves as editorial director of What Doctors Don’t Tell You, one of the world’s most highly praised health publications. She and her husband, WDDTY co-founder Bryan Hubbard, live and work in London.

4 Tips to Rewire Your Brain for Savings
John Assaraf
“1) Identify the amount of money you need to save each week, each month, or each paycheck in order to feel successful and secure with your savings plan. 2) Create a simple affirmation for yourself: ‘I am so happy and grateful for the fact that I am now saving [your identified amount] each [identified time period or pay period].’3) Read your affirmation every single morning 5-10 times and every single night before you go to bed, again 5-10 times. 4) Every time you read your affirmation, mentally rehearse checking the numbers on your savings account and watching it grow by the specified amount. See the money going into your account. Feel what it feels like to consistently have your ideal amount of savings building up each week, month, or pay period. Visualize the impact that a solid savings account will have on your life, your family’s life, your friend’s life, the community that you live in, the charities that you want to support, and so on. Get totally into a mental movie and the emotions as if you were a Hollywood actor or actress pretending that was really happening.”
Assaraf is a serial entrepreneur, brain researcher, and CEO of NeuroGym. In the last 25 years, he has grown five multi-million-dollar companies in real estate, internet software, brain research, and life and business coaching and consulting. He is the author of two New York Times best-selling books: “Having It All” and “The Answer.” His brand-new book is called “Innercise: The New Science to Unlock Your Brain’s Hidden Power” (Waterside Press, 2018). Assaraf has made frequent appearances on Larry King Live and has been featured in eight films, including the blockbuster smash hit “The Secret” and “Quest for Success” with Richard Branson and the Dalai Lama. He is one of the leading behavioral and mindset experts in the world, with a unique ability to help people release the mental and emotional obstacles that prevent them from achieving their very best in life and business. Assaraf is a vegan who creates and eats his own hot sauces, meditates daily, and exercises six days a week. He loves skiing, traveling, taking cooking classes, listening to the Bee Gees and Enigma, and being a dad, husband, and mentor.

The Health Benefits of Having a Pet
Carol Novello
Mutual Rescue
“We’ve heard from so many people who have become healthier through adopting a pet. It’s not just about the exercise but also the stress reduction and the companionship. Pets make people happy, and happier people are healthier and more motivated to take better care of themselves.”
Novello is the founder of Mutual Rescue, a national initiative that highlights the life-changing power of human-animal relationships. The initiative’s first short film, “Eric & Peety,” went viral around the world with almost 100 million views, prompting an influx of submissions to be considered for inclusion in the ongoing Mutual Rescue film series. A former senior software executive at Intuit, Novello earned her MBA from Harvard Business School and is proud to include three rescue animals in her family: a German Shepherd dog named Tess and two cats, Herbie and Bode.
