24 Hours In A Day...

...is not enough for everything I want to do.

I haven't abandoned blog. Just not much really going on. I've been playing copious amounts of poker, and have been getting some horrendously bad beats laid on me, but even so I have managed to make some gains. I countinue to play without reference to my stack and only take a look at my progress every couple of days to see where the bankroll stands. It's helping some now, but I figure it will help me even more not to know what my stack looks like when I get into the higher limits.

I was playing 4 tables last night and about 20 minutes into it I look and see SirFWALGman sitting there. Funny thing is, I had played against him before and hadn't realized who it was, but it struck me this time and I mentioned it to him. He, likewise, didn't seem to know who I was until I mentioned it. The table we were at was pretty weak so he and I were pretty much running over it. He invited Doubleas over to play and it got interesting. It was refreashing playing with some good players! At one point we got to talking about stacks. I was apparently treading water at that point, but of course my stack was covered so I didn't rightfully know. We played on for a while and at the end Gman said I did well, so I took a peek and indeed I was up around 20 or 25BB on the table. The nice part about THAT was, that wasn't my most profitable table. I got up almost 45BB on the other one, including this winner of a hand...

Third time ever! And I got some action on it. What more could a growing bankroll ask for?

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)

Everyone has days when they are down, worn out, natural cure for anxiety and just not feeling all that happy.

That's OK, you need to have days like this, otherwise how would you know when you are happy. You need to have something to contrast your happiness with. What is black without white?

Even though you know that sadness (natural cure for anxiety) is a part of life, let's try to make it a small part of life.

With that said, here are a few tips to help you feel better when you are feeling down in the dumps. They are easy to do, easy to practice every day and they work!

1. Stand up straight, sit up straight. When your body is in alignment your energy can flow and when your energy is flowing freely, you can flow.

2. Smile! Yes, just smile. Easy to do and effective.

3. Repeat positive affirmations. Things like "I feel good", "Positive energy flows through my body", "I see the good in all".

4. Listen to some music that you like. It doesn't have to be anything specific, just something you enjoy. Certain types of music work better than others, but experiment and see what works for you. Studies have shown that Classical music and new age music work best.

5. Take some time out for yourself, relax and read a book, do something for yourself.

6. Meditate. Meditation is an excellent habit to develop. It will serve you in all that you do. If you are one who has a hard time sitting still, then try some special meditation CDs that coax your brain into the meditative state. Just search for "Meditation music" on Google or Yahoo and explore.

Our outside work is simply a reflection of our inside world. Remember there is no reality just your perception of it. Use this truth to your advantage. Whenever you are sad, realize that it is all in your mind and you do have the power to change your perception.

These tips will lift you up when you are down, but don't just use them when you are sad or natural cure for anxiety . Try and practice them everyday, make them a habit. You will be surprised at how these simple exercises will keep the rainy days away.

On a final note, if you are in a deep depression that you can't seem to shake, please go see a doctor. This is your life and don't take any chances. natural cure for anxiety
