2. Stay away from sugar. If you want to understand what brain fog is, eat a sugary donut on an empty stomach, then do math problems twenty minutes later.

Does Your Childhood Hold You Back?

Written by Jo Ball

Have you come to a point in your life and got stuck and unable to move on?

Ive been shocked recently to discover how many women and men have suffered one trauma or another during childhood, in particularrepparttar amount that have been through abuse.

The experience of abuse, at an age when it would be impossible to know how to handle it, is horrific, be it beatings, humiliation or sexual abuse. These experiences stay with many children, through their teens right into adulthood, bringing up insecurity, anxiety jealousy and even threatening or violent behaviour patterns throughout life.

And maybe its here that your life gets stuck. In day-to-day situations where you feel insecure, anxious, jealous or violent youll probably revert to a behaviour pattern that you learned in your childhood. When you use that to deal with a current issue this is what you do

You react withdrawing or lashing out even though you knowrepparttar 142812 current situation has nothing to do with what is happening now, and before you know it you have lost an opportunity.

Inrepparttar 142813 aftermath regret and depression set in. You might ask why this happens to you and why life is such a mess and why, every time things seem to get better something comes along and stops you from progressing. Within it all you might even be searching forrepparttar 142814 meaning and point of life.
