Thanks for posting that, CarolJean. It's so true, isn't it? I'm definitely going to look into Rick Hanson. I haven't heard of him before today, but I think I might really enjoy his work.

Caroljean - that is very interesting ..... I don't know who Rick Hanson is but what he says is really fascinating. I'll have to look him up.

Just read this in the Just One Thing emails I get from Rick Hanson.... has written several books about brain plasticity.

* Benevolence toward oneself is needed to fulfill our three fundamental needs: to avoid harms, approach rewards, and attach to others. When these needs are met, your brain shifts into its Responsive mode, in which the body repairs itself and refuels itself, you feel peaceful, happy, and loving.

Hi,

I'm not big on rules but experience has taught me that some general guidelines are good if only for the purpose of getting everyone on the same page.

I am hoping that we can all be supportive and polite to one another.

I have set aside this forum us to use for just about anything we might want to talk about. Jokes, quotes, movies you've seen, or books you've read.

Also, feel free to bring up any issues you may run into whether it be a relationship issue, a work issue, an exercise questioin.

It's also an area for sharing information about weight loss, health, and exercise.

So .................... the topic is very broad.

Post on.

Thanks,

Amber
