Pso-rite is so right

Available at https://amzn.to/3iWI5d9?ltclid=

Simple. Aggressive. Unmatched. The Pso-Rite® is the most revolutionary self-care mobility tool of our time. The psoas complex (hip flexors) are considered to be the soul of our body. They regulate our fight or flight response, support our digestive organs, regulate our breathing, and aid in pumping blood and lymph through our body. Designed to be the shape of a therapist’s hand and the hardness of an elbow, you now have your own in-house therapist to correct pain and dysfunction in the hip region any time you want. Pressure and only pressure is what releases muscle tissue in the human body. While other companies design soft products and try to convince you that pain can be “relaxed” away, the Pso-Rite® was designed to provide relief on the deepest level for any age, size, and shaped individual out there. Specifically designed to use one peak at a time on each psoas muscle, the Pso-Rite® is just as effective at releasing tightness in nearly every muscle of the body. Use it on your hamstrings, thigh, inner thigh, calf, glutes, lower back, upper back, triceps, biceps, and chest. YOU ARE THE PRESSURE!

How One Olympian Turned Devastation into Inspiration

Yes, gymnastics is about perfect performances — but it’s also about getting back up after you fall, over and over again. When gymnast Jordyn Wieber failed to make the all-around finals at the 2012 Olympic Games, she was devastated. But two days later, she helped her team win gold. She shares how she’s learned to be resilient through life’s toughest moments and what it takes to move forward. [This talk contains sensitive content.]

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxUCLA, an independent event.

Jordyn Wieber, Olympic Gold Medalist, looks at the moments of devastation that at times are part of the fabric of life, and how to turn these into transcendent​ moments of inspiration​. Jordyn Wieber is an Olympic gold medalist and American gymnast from DeWitt, Michigan. This teenage gymnastics phenom caught the world’s attention by becoming the World Champion in 2011. A key member of the “Fierce Five”, Jordyn helped the U.S. Olympic Women’s Gymnastics Team capture the team gold medal at the London Olympic Games in 2012. In 2017, Jordyn graduated from UCLA with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and currently serves as an Assistant Coach for the UCLA Gymnastics Team. As a former Olympic gold medalist, Jordyn has expansive knowledge of how to succeed in gymnastics, but her influence extends beyond the confines of her winning combination of physical prowess and determination. Jordyn is still one of the top influencers in gymnastics and also serves as a motivational speaker and vocal advocate for preventing child sexual abuse in sports. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Sleep Better. Be Stronger. Live Longer.

What We Do

  1. Start a wind-down time if possible where your evening or time before bed gives you a chance to relax to sleep.
  2. Your bed is for sleeping so treat that space as such so your body will habitually recognize that area.
  3. Stop tech or use blue blockers so you aren’t signaling your brain to stay awake.
  4. Don’t play on your phone in bed. Remember the bedroom is for sleeping and umm other stuff.
  5. Consider an evening bath with some passive stretching to unwind and relax the body.
  6. Avoid naps as much as possible.
  7. Wake up and go to sleep at the same time every day.

What We Eat

  1. Watch your stimulants. Even 300 mg a day can be disruptive to your day AND night. It also can disrupt proper hormone regulation.
  2. Nicotine is a stimulant that won’t actually relax you contrary to prior thought.
  3. Try a calming tea in the evening.
  4. Don’t eat too late so you have enough time to digest your food.

What We Experience

  1. Make your room dark. Blackout curtains are inexpensive and work to muffle sound as well.
  2. Use ambient noise like a fan if you like.
  3. Keep the temperature cool. 66-69 degrees seems to be ideal for the body.
  4. TURN OFF THE PHONE. Set your phone to silent and on a schedule where it can turn on when you are waking.
  5. If you are unable to sleep get up and sit in your living room and read a book. You want to relax the mind while keeping the sacred space of the bedroom for sleeping.
  6. Heavy blankets can help some relax and sleep better
  7. You might need a pillow under your knees or between them for low back comfort

“About ME”

I took some time when working on some updates with my Facebook account a couple of weeks ago. My desire is to embrace my warts, scars and struggles. We all have them. Those opportunities have put me on a better path going forward for my life. Sometimes if you touch something hot and get burned you learn not to touch, right? Some paths turn out to be a one way road and you are going the wrong direction. And some chapters are experiences were you really learn and grow as a person in spite of the emotional response to the outcome you experience.

A new chapter in my life. I am about 3.5-4 years of being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. That is good and bad. It is a struggle. But I am a fighter so I battle and most of the time win.

I use my experiences to talk openly about mental health and illness advocacy. I am a suicide survivor.

I have been married and divorced 3 times. I wish I had been in recovery sooner but here I am. I, unfortunately, made a habit of setting fire to relationships as my own defense mechanism which many times were catastrophizing and paranoia.

Sitting with Jacob, my former step son.

I am a former competitive powerlifter where I think my mind was really breaking before my body. I have many injuries but still love “the Iron” as Rollins will support.

I am a Christian where my faith is based on the Bible. I also read the Stoics which helps make some sense for my own struggles too.

I am doing my best to learn more about myself, grow, and serve others.
