Adventures of a Mall Santa

by Nick Nichols

Bursting into the photo lab, David, the mall manager, said to me, “QUICK, put down what you’re doing; our mall Santa cancelled, and we need a Santa NOW!” On our way out the door he said, “I need you to be Santa for this week through Christmas Eve,” and then almost as a second thought, he asked, “Have you ever been a Santa before?” I said, “No, and why ME?” “You’re big, you don’t need pillows, you laugh a lot, and your eyes even kind of twinkle a bit,” he said. I was dumb struck–thinking about myself as Santa! The whole idea was so crazy and sudden that I burst out laughing with a “HO! HO! HO!” to fit the moment â??”SEE,” he said, “That’s what I mean; you’ll make a GREAT Santa!”

Anxiety: Rewire Your Brain Using Neuroscience to Beat Anxiety, Fear, Worry, Shyness and Panic Attacks

by Jeffrey Holloway

Use developments in neuroscience to rewire your brain and free yourself from the chains of anxiety, shyness and panic attacks.

If anxiety dictates the way you live your life and you are ready to make a change and take charge of your life, this book will help you overcome axiety. 

Fear and the amygdala have been studied since the 1800s, with scientists making a connection between the two. Both the brain and fear are complex, and the studies continue today. It turns out the finding in the 1800s was true, and the amygdala does play a significant role in emotion known as fear. To complicate matters even more, fear is a state, and you can feel it to different degrees. These range from mild worry, anxiety, fear, and panic. However, not all of these are related to the amygdala, the first two, worry and anxiety are actually linked to the prefrontal cortex. This is a fairly new finding, but something that has been studied by neuroscientists ever since its discovery.

Fear is an intense emotion that can take many different forms, including both anxiety and panic disorders. Even though they can both be debilitating, it is possible to use the brain’s own fear response to rewire it. This is possible because over time the brain has been conditioned to react a certain way to both real and perceived threats. So, just as it learned to this the first time, it can learn to do it again, in a way that is not harmful. Fear takes two different paths in the brain, with different techniques that correspond with the two. So it is important to be knowledgeable about different brain functions and how to improve and develop them. This the key to releasing the grip fear has on you and your brain.

You will learn about:

  • Fear and the brain
  • Different forms of fear/anxiety
  • Anxiety and panic
  • How to retrain the brain
  • Techniques
  • Common mistakes and how to avoid them

and much more!
