Sure, as humans we invariably experience several different kinds of emotions every day. The important question is, which ones do you place most emphasis on and how do they impact on your well-being.
Below are some emotions that heal and motivate, and some that chip away at your mental and physical well-being. Which ones have you chosen to dwell on today?

I understand fully that IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) can present in different ways to different people.  I am not a medical person nor do I have a license to practice any kind of medicine.  What I do have though, is years of personal experience in dealing with and managing this often times life crippling syndrome.When I was first diagnosed with IBS (after a process of elimination when nothing else remained but this) I eagerly listened to everything the doctors and nurses told me to do, and carefully followed all their instructions by the letter.  Yet, one year later, I was still suffering with intense pain and discomfort.

How To Say No
Many of us have problems saying no, especially when it comes to interacting with our loved ones. This article is not just about saying no to other people, but saying no to ourselves as well. 
We've got more than we can use - all of us. We've got handbags for different occasions, shoes of varying shades. 'Good' plates and ones our family use.

Nowadays I have more than I really need even though I'm not a shoe collector or hoarder. Where does it all end? How much more can we say yes to? When is enough, enough?
