Bob's Thoughts

Ep. 015 - Saying I Love You
Challenge: pay very close attention to the entertainment you consume... how often do you hear the characters say the phrase "I Love You"? How often do you say it? Do you only say it to family? I ponder these thoughts and share my own on the vulnerability of saying this simple, yet powerful phrase.

Ep. 011 - Negativity
Today, I talk about how the mere power of suggestion can create a negative or nocebo effect and how it can be countered by a placebo effect or positive thoughts in our daily lives... of course, I reference my resent hernia injury as the basis for the thought.
