Be Part of the Conversation Part 3

Posted on: September 12, 2013

Week three of my new blog feature asking questions from Chat Pack, a set of questions I found at the craft store

Today’s Question:  

If you could be the spokesperson for any product on the market,

What product would you choose to enthusiastically represent?  

My Answer:

Katie Byron’s book detailing The Work

I mentioned this once before a while ago on my blog, but couldn’t help repeating it as I really see the value in it.

Her work challenges us to pay close attention to those little voices in our heads and to ask ourselves four questions to check our thinking that can make us unhappy and behave in ways we wouldn’t normally do if we didn’t believe that original false thought. 

People who do The Work as an ongoing practice commonly report:

  • Alleviation of depression: Find resolution, even happiness, in situations that were once debilitating.
  • Decreased stress: Learn how to live with less anxiety or fear.
  • Improved relationships: Experience deeper connection and intimacy with your partner, your parents, your children, your friends, and yourself.
  • Reduced anger: Understand what makes you angry and resentful, and become less reactive, less often, with less intensity.
  • Increased mental clarity: Live and work more intelligently and effectively, with integrity.
  • More energy: Experience a new sense of ongoing vigor and well-being.
  • More peace: Discover how to become “a lover of what is.”

What I love about Bryon Katie is that she gives enough information on her site Here, that you can begin the process without purchasing anything.  

Dear Readers, this means so much to me because I have witnessed people I love who have a stranglehold on themselves due to thoughts that destroy their lives and cause them much pain.  My answer to this question is a bit deep…. much like me.

Please, Please my Dear Readers, do not feel pressure to endorse a product of such magnitude… Be as light and carefree about is as suits your personality… Is there a skin care prodcut you love,  a book you’ve read, a shampoo,  a pair of shoes that are to die for comfortable, an album that makes you dance, a product that makes your life easier.  The possibilities are endless, there are no right or wrong answers,  Trust your gut , you never know what reaching out and responding to this question will do for another person.   

Join in and make this conversation one of a variety!  

Thank You so Much for your Participation!

Fun feature! This is hard, lol! I would be a spokesperson for Ponds Facial Cleansing wipes. I love them because they are convenient to use to take off your make-up at night or have in your purse. As a busy mom and wife, by the time it comes to go to bed it’s helpful to know that I can at least wash my face before bed!

That’s a useful one to so many busy mothers and gotta say I don’t always succeed in washing mine off daily…

Well, I consider myself somewhat anti-marketing, but I’ll give this a try. This summer I discovered the Vidalia Chop Wizard. It’s great for when you need a lot of fruits or vegetables cut in nice uniform sizes (there’s two sizes). Good for making fresh salsa or salads. It’s a bit delicate and mine cracked when I was too rough on it, but I duct taped it and continue to use it anyways.

Thanks for the info on The Work. I had never heard of it and since I suffer from depression and anxiety, I’m always on the lookout for new help. I’ve recently found exercises online for acceptance and commitment therapy that have been very helpful for my anxiety. There are abundant sources, but a nice comprehensive set of exercises is found here it it would be of any help to anyone: http://emedia.rmit.edu.au/communication/content/1_Language/01_audio.htm

Tlhank you so much for your response and those type of kitchen gadgets are extremely helpful especially for those trying to eat healthy and get in plenty of vegetables.

I always say that I drop pepples into water when I give out helpful information and may never know where the ripples go out, but know that it can help, so do so whenever I can… You never know who may read your reply and the guidance you provided. Thanks for reaching out and stretching yourself!!!

Dansko shoes! I love the fit, the comfort, they make me taller, and give great spinal alignment. I just wish they weren’t so expensive.
