Overcoming Overeating: Managing That Voice In Your Head

"Darn, I forgot to call her back. That's two days in a row! She's going to be pissed. Maybe I should try her now. No, it's too late right now. I'll do it tomorrow."

"Shoot, I can't remember his name. Here he come. What is his name? Dave? … Don? He told me yesterday. Why can't ever remember this stuff? Ugh, this is going to be awkward. "

"God, I just want some chocolate right now. Maybe I should go out and get some before the store closes. But once I start I won't stop. No, I'm not going to do that again tonight. up eating way more than I want to … I really want some chocolate. OK, I'll get some tonight and tomorrow I'll eat really well all day, no sweets. "

"I just ate 2 large chocolate bars in one sitting. What is wrong with me ?! I feel so ugly and fat and disgusting and useless."

In case you haven't noticed already, you have a voice inside your head that never stops. It goes on and on. No matter what the situation, it has something to say. Have you ever wondered how it decides what to say and when to say it? Have you ever wondered if what it's saying is important? Or if its even true?

And if right now you are hearing, "I don't know what you're talking about. I don't have a voice in my head." … THAT'S the voice I'm referring to. Notice that this voice takes both sides of a conversation. It doesn't care which side it takes, it just keeps on talking. It rationalizes, it makes decisions and justifies, it rambles.

When you're tired and trying to fall asleep, it's the dialogue that's running around saying,
"Wait! I forgot to send that email! I can't go to sleep yet. I remembered that earlier this evening but I didn't send it. If I don't get up and write it now … oh, geez .It really late. I mean, honestly, what's the difference if I send it now or first thing in the morning? It's silly to turn on the light, get up and type that out right now. I need to get to sleep, I have a lot of things to do tomorrow. It's so hard to fall asleep right now. "

If you spend time observing this mental chatter, you'll quickly notice it never shuts up . If you watch it closely, you'll notice that it's just trying to find a comfortable place to settle. It will change sides in an instant if that seems like it's more comfortable. If it realizes it's wrong, it will adjust it's perspective and take on the opposite side and keep on talking. Once you start noticing the mental chatter, if you keep at it, you'll begin to notice repeating patterns around certain things. These are the thoughts or chatter that come up again and again. The mental conversations or debates that you have with yourself that you've been having for as long as you can remember.

An interesting thing to discern when you find these repeating conversations is what feelings you have as the dialogue is rambling away.

If you're thinking, "I'm such a pig, I just eat so much food all the time no matter what I do," this creates a feeling. You may not have noticed or made the distinction between the thought (what I'd call an "invisible script") and the feeling created by it. For me, making the distinction between my thoughts and feelings initially took some practice. I had them collapsed as the same thing, all part of the endless dialogue from the voice in my head.

It occurred to me like the voice was reality, talking about what was true.

Then I began to watch the voice and realize how fickle it was. I noticed that this voice would often rationalize things and change sides, depending on what was comfortable. I realized that it was actually silly to believe what it was saying was true , since it would flip around so quickly.

That's around the time I also realized that there were two parts here : there was me, listening to the voice, and then there was the voice. I sometimes refer to the voice as the "animal brain". It can also be called the "ego". Whatever you want to refer to it as, it's the part that chatters … and then there's you that notices this part chattering.

Once I was identifying this voice and it's patterns, what became fascinating was seeing how the voice created feelings.

At one point I journaled about this, writing down my thoughts in one column and my feelings in another.

I was noticing how powerful my thoughts — that voice in my head — were in creating the way I felt. And since the voice in my head is so fickle, when I'm not aware of it, my feelings resulting from the voice are at its mercy.

If the voice is being particularly nasty due to being triggered by something, I feel worse and worse. If I'm not aware, then when the voice says harsh things, I believe those things to be true. The voice may say something nasty about me, my behavior or my appearance, or it may say something gossipy and mean about someone else. Either way, my feelings are affected.

It becomes a snowball effect: something triggers the voice (or my "animal brain" or my ego), the voice starts saying harsh things, I feel bad, the voice keeps going, I feel worse, and that affects my behaviors, actions and words.

A great example of this is if I look in the mirror and the voice says something nasty about my appearance, then I feel ugly, shameful, weak, etc. How likely is it that I'm then going to go nourish myself with the best, most delightful food that I can find and eat only the amount that feels comfortable?

Not likely.

More likely is that I'll beat myself up, restrict my eating all day because I deserve to starve, then cave in and eat a whole bunch in rebellion. This is a very likely outcome if I'm not aware of this voice and not noticing how it affects me.

So what's there to do with this voice? If you try to ignore it or tell it to shut up, it's only going to become louder and more insistent.

The best way to liberate yourself from this incessant chatter is to zoom out and watch it . Become an observer of it. Notice it as a mechanism that has the ability to appear like it's speaking the truth and sounds like someone is in your head talking to you. Don't think about it, just notice it.

No matter what that voice says, nice things or nasty things, it's all the same kind of chatter. It doesn't matter if it's saying superficial things or spiritual things. It's still just a voice in your head. If you are observing it saying things, it's not actually you — you are the one that's hearing it. You're the observer.

When you begin to realize you're not this voice, you're just the one that hears it, you're making an extraordinary leap of growth.

The more you watch it objectively, the more you'll start to see that the voice is meaningless. No matter what the voice is saying, life will continue to unfold as it always has. The voice may hate it or may love it, but life goes on.

So, if this voice is so meaningless, then why does it exist? The answer to this lies in understanding why it says what it says when it says it.

This is when your skills of becoming an observer of the voice come into play. When you can observe the voice, you can start to become interested in why it's saying what it's saying. It might be because there's a buildup of energy inside of you about something that needs to get out. The voice often gets more active when there's a buildup of anxiety, fear, challenge, or desire. The voice also runs even when there's nothing in particular bothering you. It mostly acts as a narrator of your world. It says things like,

"Look at that. The flowers really look good in front of that house."

"Oh, there goes a basset hound. I love those kind of dogs."

"Geez, look at that dress she's wearing. It's not exactly the color I would have chosen, but it looks pretty good on her."

This narration is a way of helping you to feel secure. You're noticing the world around you, so you must be a part of that world. If you're noticing the world around you, then you are having a direct experience with it. The voice is validating your existence.

So this voice goes about validating your existence, then mixing that in your mind with all your other thoughts based on your past, your impressions, your perspectives, etc. As this soup of thought mixes together, you then internally interpret your world. (So ​​what you end up experiencing is actually your personal understanding of the world according to you. It's not the unfiltered, raw experience of what's actually out there. But that's another conversation for another time.)

The voice exists to help you survive in the world based on how it's interpreting things. It will adjust however it needs to in order to feel comfortable and validated.

The more you can notice the voice, the more you can use it as an indicator.

If you notice that it's getting nasty or loud or obsessive, you can become curious. If you notice that you're feeling low, watch what's coming from the voice that's creating the feeling. So rather than reacting automatically and reaching for more food because you're feeling low, or bored, or lonely … you can listen to the voice. You can give it space to run it's course.

Watch the voice urge you to eat more, or chastise you for losing control or whatever it wants to do. Acknowledge it as mental chatter. Then look for why it's saying what it's saying. Appreciate it for trying to express something that's going on for you, and then let it go if it's not serving you. It might get louder. It might try harder to convince you. Keep appreciating it for doing its job by indicating something that it wants expressed, and keep letting it go.

The more you practice this, the easier it will be to be to identify as the observer and not the voice. It's the doorway to having the power to create anything and everything you want in your life.

If you learn how to listen to the voice and use it effectively, this same voice that has caused worry, anxiety and neurosis can become the launching pad for getting you where you truly want to go.

Saltwater Fishing Reels

Saltwater fishing conjures up the image of a vast sea with a large fish dancing across the waters surface. This is not far from reality when you think more generally terms of large fish and corrosive conditions. These are the two main reasons why a good saltwater fishing reel is so important to your fishing arsenal.

While a saltwater reel may look much like any other reel, the fact is that the these fishing reels are constructed for saltwater fishing conditions and are designed to stand up to the elements that a fisherman encounters. They are also made to with stand the rigors of heavier fish.

Consider first the type of fishing you will be doing. Shore fishing and open water fishing are two of the distinct types of saltwater fishing anglers can enjoy. Each type requires a different type of reel.

If open water fishing is for you, then you will be searching for a reel that has durable construction and is more on the heavy-duty end for bigger fish and deeper depths. Baitcasting type of reels are the most commonly used saltwater fishing reels, as these saltwater types of reels are made to handle heavy line weights associated with open water fishing. Also you will find the drag systems accommodate a variety of resistance automatically.

Shore fishing on the other hand will most likely be scaled back when it comes to the depth of the water and the fish size. Here a spinning reel, similar to those used when bass fishing, will do the job. The saltwater spinning reels offers better resistance to corrosion, as it is normally made from stainless steel. Always keep corrosion in mind when thinking of reel selection or reel maintenance.

The life expectancy of your saltwater fishing reel depends squarely on your care. Cleaning is crucial when you own saltwater reels. Always hose down your saltwater equipment after every outing. This will help your expensive fishing reel last longer.

Stansted Airport London – An Independent Travellers Guide

Of London’s airports, Stansted Airport is furthest from the centre of London, nearly 40 miles. The airport is dominated by low cost budget airlines and in particular Ryanair and easyJet, Europe’s largest low cost airlines.

The overwhelming majority of flights are European or UK domestic flights.

The airport also has significant charter traffic, particularly for the British travelling on package tours to the sun.

The main intercontinental and state carriers like British Airways, Virgin, American and Singapore Airlines all use London’s Heathrow or Gatwick Airports.

The airport is an established airport but was relaunched 15 years ago with a brand new terminal and infrastructure, including a direct rail link and motorway to London. At first it was a white elephant but the emergence of the low cost budget carriers has transformed Stansted into one of the fastest growing airports in Europe in the last decade.

Today, full capacity of the main terminal is within sight and a new terminal and further out a second runway is planned.

There are no surprises with the terminal itself, all the standard facilities are in place including choice of foreign exchange, pharmacies, news stands etc. There is a good range of eating opportunities ranging from fast food and pub food through to sit down restaurants. In common with all airports run by BAA, the owner, there is a lot of luxury shopping outlets. But remember, the vast majority of flights from Stansted are within the EEC and do not qualify for duty free status.

It normally takes around 30 minutes from touch down to exiting customs with most flights if you have luggage. There is an airport information desk immediately outside customs and a desk for AirportCarz who have a monopoly on taxi services at the airport. Taking a taxi to London is only used by a very small minority of passengers because of the distance and expense.

If your destination is London, the quickest option is to take the Stansted Express train. The train station is underneath the terminal so you just descend to the platforms by escalators or lifts.

The Stansted Express takes 45 minutes to London’s Liverpool Street Station and runs about every 15 minutes during the day. Last trains are around midnight. The fares on the Stansted Express are expensive, well over $US40 for a single return fare. The Liverpool Street terminus is also not very convenient for most travellers, being sited in the middle of the financial district of London, 3-5 miles from most of the most popular hotel accommodation. The train stops at an intermediate stop called Tottenham Hale, 10 minutes before Liverpool Street, an interchange with the London Underground (Victoria Line).

Many of the airlines will sell tickets for the Stansted Express, some at a discount, before landing at Stansted Airport.

The budget transfer option into London is to take one of four scheduled coach services run by National Express and Terravision. There is a large, modern coach station in front of the terminal, adjacent to the rail station.

The cheapest option is the Terravision service to Liverpool Street Station, the same route as the Stansted Express. The price is about half that of the Stansted Express Train. Downside like all road based transfers is the London traffic, on a good day the coach will make it in about an hour. National Express run services about every 30 minutes to nearby Stratford Underground at a similar price.

The other route taken by the coaches is Stansted to London Victoria. Both have return fares around $US25. The Terravision service is non-stop, the National Express service makes stops through central London, many of them close to the major hotel districts. The National Express service is a true 24×7 service, the Terravision service only stops for a couple of hours early morning. Some of the highest frequencies are around midnight Stansted-London and very early morning London-Stansted for the first and last flights when the Stansted Express and London Underground have shut down.

Because of the sometimes extraordinarily cheap fares of Ryanair and easyJet a lot of transcontinental travellers have found it cheapest to fly into Heathrow and then complete their journey to their European destination using a low cost airline from Stansted.

National Express run shuttle services between Heathrow and Stansted from the coach station at Stansted. There are usually a couple of services an hour, the journey taking around 90 minutes (though delays on the motorway are almost routine at rush hours). The fare is not cheap either. The return fare is about $US50. It is cheaper to use the indirect National Express service to Stratford and then catch the London Underground to Heathrow, but less comfortable.

If you want to stay over at Stansted Airport before a flight there are plenty of options available. Like all airport hotels at London, room rates are normally much cheaper at weekends than mid-week. If you are transiting from Heathrow or Gatwick which have much fiercer competition, you will probably find rates more expensive at Stansted, particularly in the budget sector.

Immediately adjacent to the terminal is the luxury Stansted Radisson SAS, the only airport hotel where you do not need a hotel transfer vehicle. This is perhaps the most luxurious hotel and at weekends rates can be fairly competitive. The original luxury hotel at Stansted is the 4 star Hilton Hotel on the airport perimeter. The Hilton Stansted runs its own shuttle bus from the coach station about every 30 minutes.

In the immediate vicinity of the airport is an Express by Holiday Inn and a Best Western. The consistently cheapest option is the Days Inn on a motorway services area at the entrance to Stansted Airport. It provides no airport transfer facility itself though of course there are taxis and a local bus service.

Apart from the chains there are a lot of independent hotels in the vicinity. These feature hotels for all budgets and tastes, ranging from Country House Hotels, to pubs to traditional Bed and Breakfasts. The countryside around Stansted is surprisingly unspoilt and there is opportunity to stay in a traditional market town or coaching inn for example.

The History of Aintree Racecourse

Aintree Racecourse is one of the most famous racecourses in the world and is located on the A59 at Ormskirk Road, Aintree (Anglo-Saxon for 'one tree'), in the northern suburbs of Liverpool, just 6 miles from the city center.

The racecourse occupies more than 250 acres and has two left-handed chasing circuits. The rectangular Mildmay Course is the first and was opened in 1953. It is nearly one and a half miles in length, with sharp turns and steeplechase fences.

The Grand National course isn't as sharp as the Mildmay course but is much more demanding which is why it is known as one of the toughest races in the world, one which all horse trainers aspire to gain entry to. The Grand National course is far longer than the Mildmay, at almost two and a quarter miles, and is completely flat, with fences that have a drop on the landing side lower than the take-off side.

William Lynn is the man responsible for bringing racing to the village of Aintree. Lynn was the landlord of the Waterloo Hotel and started racing on the land which he leased from the Earl of Sefton. He started to build the grand stand in 1829 and after five months the first meeting for flat races was held.

Hurdle racing didn't begin until 1836, when the first Liverpool Grand Steeplechase was held at Aintree on February 29th. This race is considered by some as being the first ever Grand National and was won by The Duke, ridden by Captain Martin Becher.

However, the more documented Liverpool Grand Steeplechase of 1839 is more commonly identified as the first Grand National, and was won by Lottery, ridden by Jem Mason. The race of 1839 was a four miler, across country, and the rule was that 'no rider to open a gate or ride through a gateway, or more than 100 yards along any road, footpath or driftway'.

The racecourse was handed over to the War Office in 1915, and after the 1940 National it was again requisitioned by the military. Racing resumed in 1946 and in 1949 the racecourse was bought by Messrs Topham Ltd; who had leased the land for almost a century; from the Earl of Sefton for £ 275,000. Mirabel Topham, an enterprising soul, went on to create the Mildmay course and a motor-racing circuit which held the European Grand Prix and five British Grand Prix.

Bill Davies bought the racecourse in 1973 for £ 3 million and in 1975 Ladbrokes saved the Grand National, which was in danger of dying out, by managing and administering it for seven years at a yearly rent of £ 250,000. In 1983 the racecourse was deemed secure when the Jockey Club bought it.

Aintree has come a long way from the days when it could only be accessed by rail or paddle boat. Now, improved rail and network links means that fans can travel by any means to reach the wonderful racecourse. There is even a six acre enclosure for landing by helicopter on site or the alternative option of John Lennon airport twenty minutes drive away, meaning that those both home and abroad can come share in the magnificent Aintree festivities.

Liverpool’s Preparation – Next Season

I think you all who are a Liverpool’s fan already know that Liverpool has a serious problem about their scorer. Almost in every game they had really good system and position, everything in the match always great except the striker.

Although, Dirk Kuyt ,Peter Crouch , Craig Bellamy or even Robbie Fowler had paticipated the game very well but they always loss the chance to score. When the goal was not coming, the pressure normally came to the player. The pressure will effected to decision of the player. The result is the play produce more mistakes and their rival use this mistake as opportunities to bring Liverpool down. No matter how strong Liverpool defender could be, it is not important if they can not score.

Liverpool will always have victory if they have the first goal. In other word, they always defeated when they loss the first goal to the rival. Eventhough, Rafael Benitez has incredible brain to solve any problem in every situation but the key is the players not the manager. I had been waited Liverpool to buy new striker so long time but he still not come for now.

However, I think Liverpool has fitting red engine in the middle area on the squad. Steven Gerrard and Xavi Alonso are do well in their position. Furthermoe, Javier Mascherano coming is a appropriate combination. During the close of this season I hope Liverpool will approach another striker to improve their weakness.

Now I prefer English Premier League more than UEFA Champion League.
