A warm welcome to CoraBlog!

Today I am welcoming you, with cool sunglasses on because I hope this makes a good impression on you. But are sunglasses as cool as they seem? In fact, they can have a negative impact on your mood! The eyes are the “window of the soul” and thus bring light into our nervous system.
Through light, the level of the “happiness hormone” serotonin increases within our brains. On the other hand the production of the hormone melatonin, which is produced by the pineal gland is being inhibited. As we want to feel pleasantly awake and active during daytime, the melatonin levels increase in the dark, which is why we get tired at night. Serotonin is a “feel – well hormone” that has positive effects on your mood – especially during daytime.  Sufficiently high serotonin levels in the body make us calm and balanced, a shortage in the worst-case scenario, can lead to a “seasonal affective disorder” (which we in Germany also refer to as a “winter depression”), to emotional hypersensitivity or sleep disorder. Who looks through sunglasses too often, suggests to his/her body, that it is dark outside and provokes the production of melatonin at a time of day when it is not necessary at all.
So take off your sunglasses sometimes – especially in sunny weather! Let´s consider the wisdom that lies in language: Terms like “to be enlightened” or sayings like: “Let the sun shine through your heart” or “the truth dawned upon him“ implicate that light can have a positive effect on our mood!  Furthermore, effective techniques that make use of inner images by changing submodalities can profit on imagining them with light or light rays because it can have a particularity positive effect. I wish all of my readers many happy hours with a sunny mood–Either if the sun is shining inside or outside!
In case this should not work itself, I recommend my new wingwave book “Quick help with anxiety and stress”! – Which just appeared in German language.  Everybody knows stress and anxiety. The answer to the question how to get over them quickly and effectively is not only given in this book but also on the multilingual wingwave homepage: www.wingwave.com. I am looking forward to interested readers!
