The Raw Reset starts tomorrow. The raw reset is like therapy to me because it incorporates both mental planning with physical activity. The best selling book The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk is about innovative treatments for traumatic stress in cases where talk therapy is of little benefit. Trauma is stored in the body and it produces changes in the brain which is why talk therapy and the rational mind may not be the right approach. Other therapies involving the body with touch, movement, and breath are quite effective. So the foods are an important pillar in this lifestyle but equally important is the rebounding, the steps, the growing the microgreens, the staying on plan, doing it as you go through it no matter what comes, arriving wherever you go as yourself and leaving with your integrity intact having kept the promises you made to yourself. It really is a wonderful and complete program.
Travis pulled all the decorations from the attic and we began decorating. I decorated the Christmas tree, hung the wreaths, and put out some decorations. Travis hung the Christmas flag and blew up some lawn ornaments for the outside.
