Do you have a strange addiction? For many years, experts believed that only alcohol and powerful drugs were addictive. Recent research has shown that certain pleasurable activities, such as gambling, shopping, and sex, can also hijack the brain. Addictions are chronic and persistent behaviors that we continue to do despite their negative consequences. Although common addictions such as alcoholism and drugs typically come to mind, some people suffer from strange addictive behaviors. You may joke that you’re addicted to chocolate, but what if you really were? What if you couldn’t stop eating chocolate no matter how sick it made you? Or, what if you were addicted to something else such as eating glass, hair pulling, eating dirt, or drinking nail polish? Addiction exerts a powerful influence on the brain that manifests in three distinct ways: craving for the object of addiction, loss of control over its use, and continuing involvement with it despite adverse consequences. For some addictions, the action itself is considered socially acceptable, making it harder to identify and deal with. In fact, some behaviors are so common like watching TV or surfing the Internet, that an addiction might go unnoticed. But where is the line between normal behavior and an addiction? And how can you tell the difference? Life Coach Jenn A. Nocera of Formula for Excellence will set the record straight.

We all know that laughter is the best medicine. Since the 2 Annual Asbury Park Comedy Festival is coming to town on August 24, this is a good time to talk about why laughter and comedy are essential to our personal well-being. Poet Robert Frost said, “If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane.” It’s never too late to start seeing the lighter side of life. Having a good sense of humor is an essential social skill. A well executed joke can get you out of a tight spot or help you get away with things that others would not be able to get away with. Humor is often the gateway to friendship and a trait we typically desire in a partner. A sense of humor can be a lifesaver in a relationship. The ability to laugh at one’s self and at life’s challenges allows a person to maintain a proper perspective when dealing with sensitive issues within a relationship. Couples who are playful and teasing can defuse potentially volatile situations with their humor. Sharing the pleasure of humor creates a sense of intimacy and connection between two people, qualities that define solid, successful relationships. But what makes us laugh? For some it's sitcoms like Seinfeld, or classic I Love Lucy. Or maybe you like controversial humor from comedians like Richard Pryor or George Carlin. Ever laugh out loud while reading a book? The only book that ever did that for me was Joseph Heller’s Catch 22. Humor is, of course, subjective, but most of us have something that tickles our funny bone and makes us dissolve into uncontrollable laughter. Join Life Coach Jenn A. Nocera and me for a humorous look at comedy. After the show, please check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for additional information.
Believe in today, your life is now. There is a plaque with these words that I have had for years. Having read this book, these words take on a deeper meaning. According to spiritual teacher and author of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle, living fully in the present is the key to happiness and enlightenment. But what does “living in the now” mean? If you have ever thought your life would improve when you got a raise, or won the lottery, or lost weight, then you’re not living in the NOW. Life is a journey, a series of “nows,” not the final and future destination. Tolle says “Nothing has happened in the past; it happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the Now.” Human minds are conditioned to think in terms of past, present and future. We are preoccupied with past memory and future anticipation, rather than focusing on the now. The past forms our identity and what has led us to our current life circumstances. We focus on the future because this is where we believe our dreams and hopes will come to fruition – what we imagine to be our salvation, but actually a projection of the mind. We can never actually experience the past or the future. The past is gone, and in reality we experienced it as a sequence of “Nows.” Tolle writes, “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” Please join me and Life Coach Jenn A. Nocera of Formula for Excellence for a discussion of The Power of Now. This New York Times bestseller has been translated into 33 languages, sold over 3 million copies, and is widely regarded as one of the most influential spiritual books of our time.

How safe do you feel? New Jersey ranks 28 out of 50 on the US Peace Index. The 3 most peaceful states are Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire. Maine has been the most peaceful state for 11 years. Louisiana, Tennessee and Nevada are the 3 least peaceful states. Louisiana is the least peaceful state for the 20th year. The South is the least peaceful region; it has highest homicide, violent crime, incarceration rates, and highest rate of gun ownership. The 3 least peaceful countries are Afghanistan, Somalia, and Syria. Peace is essential to resolve global challenges facing humanity. The Global Peace Index (GPI) is the world’s leading measure of national peacefulness. Now in its 7th year, it ranks 162 nations according to their absence of violence. Without peace, we can’t achieve the levels of cooperation, inclusiveness, and social equity necessary to resolve poverty, global health issues, and climate change. The GPI is developed by Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP). It has 22 indicators, ranging from a nation’s level of military expenditure to its relations with neighboring countries and the percentage of prison population. The GPI defines peace as the absence of violence and the absence of the fear of violence. Some experts feel world peace and prosperity can be attained through the realization of 5 fundamental freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want, freedom from fear, and freedom for the environment. These 5 freedoms establish a framework within which all other human rights, and therefore peace, can flourish. Join me and Life Coach Jenn A Nocera for a look at the GPI and what it means to the planet. After the show, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for additional information.
On my refrigerator, among the clutter of magnets, photos, and my neglected grocery list, is a small piece of paper with the phrase Choices & Consequences printed out. It’s been on my refrig for over a year and is my constant reminder that almost every decision in my life boils down to those words. As I was reading Don Miguel Ruiz’s 1997 best seller The Four Agreements, I was stunned when I came to page 99 and found the following: “Your life is the manifestation of your dream; it is an art. And you can change your life anytime if you aren’t enjoying the dream. Dream masters create a masterpiece of life; they control the dreams by making choices. Everything has consequences and a dream master is aware of the consequences.” So little did I realize when I stuck that piece of paper on my refrig, that I already had an inkling and a basic concept of The Four Agreements. Don Miguel Ruiz describes four principles, or agreements, to practice in order to create love and happiness in your life. Adopting and committing to these agreements is simple. Actually living and keeping these Four Agreements might be one of the toughest things you will ever do but can also be one of the most life altering things you will ever do. The Four Agreements are Be Impeccable With Your Word, Don’t’ Take Anything Personally, Don’t Make Assumptions, and Always Do Your Best. Sounds so easy and simplistic, right? Join Life Coach Jenn A. Nocera of Formula for Excellence and me for a lively discussion of the agreements. After the interview, check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for additional information.
Adorning yourself to enhance beauty, pledge allegiance to a group, express your identity, or show off status has been a part of the human experience for as long as there’s been humans. Body adornments are popular in various forms in virtually every corner of the world. Examples include tattooing, piercing, branding, or scarification. These days body piercing is everywhere, especially among young people who often get several parts of their bodies pierced as an affirmation of their individuality, as a means of sexual gratification or stimulation, to reclaim their bodies from physical or emotional trauma, or as an adornment. It’s common to see pierced noses, navel, lips, and tongues. And there are the pierced places you don’t see such as nipples and other areas further south. I had my ears pierced when I was in 9 grade and that was only after considerable pleading. How times have changed! One of the most popular and ancient forms of body adornment, other than jewelry, originated with ancient and tribal cultures before spreading into European society -- the ancient practice of tattooing. Many native or tribal populations had traditions of facial tattoos. Tattooing was also very popular among the Polynesian Islanders. The concept of decorating oneself with body art was first brought to Europe by sailors who had learned of the practice while traveling through Polynesia. Tattoos are acceptable among mainstream Americans, and are often done in areas that can be covered up while at work. The times they are a-changing, and few people are shocked by tattoos and piercings as body adornment. Life Coach Jenn A. Nocera and I will give our two cents on this subject and discuss other adornments like the vajazzler. Really. Google it.

Are you resilient ? In every single aspect of life including romance, work, and family, there are setbacks and disappointments which range from minor inconveniences to catastrophic losses.

Are you happy? According to the Happiness Index, the residents of the USA rank 13th in the world in terms of their overall happiness. The top three happiest countries are Iceland, Sweden, and Denmark. So what’s going on in America? We already know money doesn’t buy happiness.

Nocera and I will disc
It’s February and love is in the air. All you need is love. Love is a many-splendored thing. I can’t help falling in love with you. When I fall in love, it will be forever. Wait a minute! If love was easy to find, there would be no one on dating sites. In reality, the course of true love never did run smooth. Physical attraction is one of those “you know it when you see it” concepts. Sometimes we confuse the feeling of attraction with the emotion of love. Not being able
