IS YOUR BRAIN ONLINE? by Cathy D. Slaght
Just took my first selfie- seems like the celebrities do well with this concept, so thought I'd try too.
This is my Kim Kardashian pout. (Decided to keep my clothes on, though, since this is a site about creating well-being, not destroying it.)
The book is: Why Isn't My Brain Working?" by Datis Kharrazian, DHSc. DC, MS
Thing is, it's taken me about 6 months to read this - I can't seem to stay focused.
People magazine, a good movie, no problem. But I can't sit the way I used to and read a non-fiction book.
I get restless, bored.
We've adapted to a new way of communication- we're mesmerized by images, especially when they flash from our TVs and computers.
And written material- we'll only "read" it if it's written in a form that can be quickly scanned.
A book- especially a big fat non-fiction like this one- can be a challenge. Our attention span is just too limited- they say it's about 8 seconds.
Yet we need our brains to be ONLINE- that's a requirement for bringing in the life we desire.
Have you gone OFFLINE? Here are some clues-
Poor focus and concentration
Poor mental focus after meals

Any number under 1000 signals stress. The areas we seem to want to deal with today are:
Poor mental focus after meals
Difficulty in finding joy
