What can you do, each and every day, to make the day a happier more productive time? Listen as Dr. Roy Vongtama chats about how your breath and your example is the key to creating a more positive environment. Dr. Vongtama is an oncologist turned author turned actor who has spent his life helping others find ways to heal through positivity and he has some amazing nuggets for you.
Now while positivity is great… it’s only healing if it is real. Dr. Vongtama stresses that you should feel and express your real emotions so that you can move toward more positive thinking. If you ever find yourself drowning in negativity, learn how you can use your breath to reinsert calm in your life.
Another sure-fire way of increasing your sense of peace and decreasing anxiety is turning your self-talk into a positive experience. Confident people are naturally more at peace with the world. Why? Because they speak positively about themselves and believe in themselves. If you’re constantly putting yourself down, then you’re opening the door for life and others to do the same.
Listen as Dr. Vongtama walks me through a wonderful breathing exercise that re-asserts a sense of peace and shares how you can create a habit of more positive thought. You have to take ownership of where you are at and where you want to go. Your life and health are your responsibility. Are you ready to move forward?

We’ve all experienced pain, but how much of it is physiological and how much of it is psychological? I’m asking this question because I recently had a really bad bout with pain and it reminded me about the work of Dr. John Sarno. Dr. John Sarno did a ton of research around the Mindbody Connection. He started his career as a regular doctor, assessing physical trauma and prescribing pain meds or surgery as needed. All was well until he realized that his patients didn’t always get better after the initial issue was treated.
