These methods really help me move past my previous relationship, cure my addictive tendencies, over thinking, I've cut out alcohol, sugar and meat, and moved onto a mostly alkaline based foods. Drinking only natural teas and water.

By doing this i have really been able to level my dopamine levels to a normal level, its not an easy process but it is fairly simple.

Il do my best to try and answer any questions

I highly advise people checking them out, they are free methods to try. youtube has a lot of great videos.

I havent been on here for ages, look forward to hearing peoples responses.

Much Love

Isn't Wim Hof that ice-man?  The record holder for ice-sitting (whereas previously I didn't know that was a competition).  I would like to follow his story a little more.  I hadn't thought about the benefits in my healing path from what he might teach.  

Your post makes me contemplate how many was we as individuals have adopted to self-medicate / heal / cope / avoid / deal with / overcome a situation that we don't really want to be in.  It takes a lot.  And, it takes a certain kind of person to do it.

For me, I run distance - that does a lot to help on many fronts.  It gives me time to think, and space away from distractions. It also pushes me on an inward journey as I am conditioning myself to listen to my biorhythms.  I have started skipping breakfast everyday and fasting more.  I think that helps with general spirituality and awaking calmly.  Being in tune with my hunger has brought focus on my inward self, not to mention increasing my gratitude for food.  Moving out of the bedroom away from my uBPDw gave me the gift of restful sleep.  Reading self-help books and Buddhist books helps a lot too.  Getting a few tattoos gave me a boost in self-identity; and since they are philosophically and personally symbolic they help with all the above steps along the way.

Thanks for asking, and giving me cause to reflect.

Live like you mean it.

Yeah that is the ice man. He went through a similar path with his wife, having difficulties with life and eventually took her own life.

He talks about how the breath and ice bring your body back into a state of not being to do anything but be present.

I think this is one of his best videos, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZaT0KUziq4&t=1s

I hope this bring you value smiley

These are really some of the best tools i have found to help me, as you understand all of this fully but if you can't get out of your mind. It will control you forever. This is my personal belief.

The two have to work together and realise that your thoughts aren't you and this really helped.

Much love
