The magical L-Theanine. Now to be fair, this little “wonder drug” (it’s really an amino acid) doesn’t work for everyone. But in those responders for whom it does work, it works well. And I think of it as one of my master anti-anxiety brain-protectors.
Do you allow yourself to grieve? It’s a funny question. Well not really, it’s kind of awkward actually… Because typically, we don’t sit very comfortably with the pain and discomfort of our not-so bubbly emotional sphere.
I acknowledge the Gayamaygal people, who are the Traditional Custodians of the land from where I live and consult, and their connections to land, sea, and community. I pay respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
