Guest Post

When I got the chance to ask Geoffrey Saign, author of Smile More Stress Less, any question, I wanted to know what single piece of information in his book he though people would find most surprising. Here is his answer.

There are two takeaways in SMILE MORE STRESS LESS that readers might find new or surprising.

1) All of humanity is living in self-created illusions, and these illusions create ‘stress’ in the body and mind. If you don’t understand this fact, you will simply repetitively create illusions your entire life, and mechanically react to everything and everyone around you. This is absolutely essential to understand. The good news is, half the challenge of change is seeing what the problem is. SMILE MORE STRESS LESS provides the other half; how to end the illusions that you are creating in all areas of your life, gain clarity, and wake up intelligence—which is the deeper extension of intuition.

2) Much has been said about living in the Present, in the Moment, in the Now (and there is a book, The Power of Now)—these are all illusions. There is only HERE. It’s extremely critical that we are clear with the words we use for ourselves and life. Psychological time is an illusion. SMILE MORE STRESS LESS goes into this in detail, and provides clarity. Psychological time creates stress, and thus present, moment, and Now all feed that illusion and stress.

My hope is that readers can be free of all illusions, have clarity, wake up intelligence, and spend more of their life in joy and happiness.

About the Author

Geoffrey Saign began reducing stress by practicing mindfulness at the age of fifteen. For fifty years he studied many modalities for mind-body calming and awareness, including Qigong, tai chi, kung fu, meditation, biofeedback, positive psychology, and many others. He co-designed and taught a cutting-edge, research-based self-awareness class to young adults for ten years. In 2020 the author experienced a major breakthrough in mind-brain-body awareness, which led to him Living with intelligence HERE, and the resulting book, Smile More Stress Less.

My Favorite Excerpt

You Can End Daily Stress With Playfulness & Humor

One way to change rote, stressful thought patterns is to use playful exaggeration. It is a simple, repetitive method that will produce immediate and significant results, and we will use it often in this book in different ways and situations.

Let’s try it with dirty dishes. You see dirty dishes in the sink. Thoughts enter your mind about how irresponsible the person was in leaving them there. You feel annoyed and irritated. You notice this Self-Created Stress reaction inside yourself, and you interrupt it. You say out loud or think:

Oh no! My hands will never recover from this!

This is going to ruin my whole life!

It’s the end of the world as I know it!

Smile as you do this. Smiling brings about a strong positive emotion, and strong emotion helps change the brain by wiring a new neural pattern that’s even stronger.

Every time we change our thought pattern or interrupt old thought responses, we are changing our brain—teaching it—and allowing a new neural pattern to develop. We are telling the brain, This old pattern of thought is no longer useful or acceptable. The brain always listens. EVERY SINGLE EFFORT IS WORTHWHILE. This cannot be overstated.

Thank you!

Smart Bitches Buy Bitcoin

Today it is my pleasure to welcome author Branden LaNette and her self-help book Smart Bitches Buy Bitcoin.


Author’s description

It seems like everyone’s talking about Bitcoin these days. Still, a lot of people just don’t get it. Or they assume Bitcoin is just for tech-savvy millennial guys or rich investors like Elon Musk.

 

As for women, many of us didn’t get a great financial education. Some of us shy away from conversations about money and investing especially if it has to do with the crazy world of cryptocurrencies.

 

What to do? Start with this brand new short, fun, and easy read,”Smart Bitches Buy Bitcoin: A Simple Guide for Women Who Want to Learn the Truth About Bitcoin and Control Their Financial Future.”

 

The book is designed to help women understand the current financial situation, why Bitcoin could be the life raft they need, and how to get started investing in it. Don’t leave your economic future to chance just because it seems scary or confusing and this is the perfect book to get you started.

About the Author

Branden LaNette doesn’t look like a typical author but she has long ignored what she “should” do, say and look like. On her own at a very young age, Branden eventually found herself with the wrong guy, the wrong job, and a bleak future. The fairytale she was promised as a child never materialized.

Finally, Branden decided that she wanted something different for her life, and realized no one was going to do it for her. Prince charming wasn’t coming to save her—she’d have to save herself.

Step by step, decision by decision, through major trials and tribulations that would stop most people in their tracks, Branden learned how to turn heartbreak into happiness and self-judgement into inner joy.

Today, Branden LaNette is an entrepreneur, coach, speaker, wife, and stay-at-home Mom to six C-section babies (ages 1-16) and way too many f-ing pets. Somehow, however, she manages to juggle all of this effortlessly (a blatant lie) while pushing her way through the kinds of fear and self-doubts that whisper within all of us (totally true) to achieve her goals. Her most recent dream come true is this book, one that is destined to have a major impact on millions of women across the globe (or at least nine people in Michigan.)

Through it all, she has found her happiness, her joy, and more importantly, her voice.

My Favorite Excerpt

Most young girls have dreams of living a fairy tale life. We know we did. (Branden even wrote a fabulous book about it!) The problem with the dream is we expect that fairy tale life to be handed to us. As we get older, we figure out that’s b.s.; even if we do get the fairy tale life, we’ve got to work our Cinderella-asses off for it.

Maybe you can relate.

One of the most terror-filled moments for most of us is the realization that no one is coming to save us.

No one.

It’s easy to blame others because things didn’t work out the way we thought they would. It’s the world’s fault. And the government’s fault. And rich people’s fault. And… and… and…

The truth is, where we find ourselves at any given moment in time is our fault; at a minimum it’s our responsibility.

The fairy tale is possible. We can be saved. But if you want to have the life of your dreams, you’re going to have to save yourself. Bitcoin is the tool to do exactly that.

If you want Bitcoin to go to work for you, you’re going to have to buy some Bitcoin.

Thank you!

My Favorite Excerpt

Insomnia wreaks havoc on your quality of life and it’s bad for your overall health, so it is no wonder that sleeping aids are a twenty-nine billion dollar market. People need to sleep. You want to get rid of this problem, but you don’t know how. No clear solution has yet been found and nothing you’ve tried so far has worked.

As an ex-insomniac, I have written this book to share with you how I managed to get rid of my chronic sleeping problems and hand you down the tools that helped me heal myself. It is my deepest wish they ensure that you will have fewer restless nights, and perhaps even free you from insomnia forevermore.

Let us first agree on how to look at insomnia.

If there is no medical explanation for your insomnia, please make the effort to understand the reason behind it. Doing so will allow you to make adjustments to your life so you can eliminate the issue. I’ve found that the best way to get started with that is to see insomnia as a type of self-sabotage. But note that I don’t use this term with the same negative implications that are commonly attributed to it. What I mean to say here is actually the opposite: What if insomnia is in fact serving an important natural purpose for you?

Thank you!
