Hey ADs,

 

We’ll let you into a little secret:

 

We used to be really bad at the whole dating/ new relationship thing.

 

We were either feeling depressed that we weren’t seeing anyone we fancied, or when we did happen to be dating someone, we spent the whole courtship feeling anxious that:

 

  • They might not like us as much as we liked them

 

OR

 

  • We were coming across as desperate & clingy (probably cos most of the time, we were)

 

If you relate to either of these ‘EDFs’ (Early Dating Fears), you really do not want to miss today’s Life Nugget where we share our go-to tool for both attracting a romantic partner, and maintaining their interest.

 

The early stages of romance are always the toughest, because you spend the whole time second-guessing – not only yourself, but also what the other person’s thinking via the ‘subtext’ of their texts, words and actions.

 

The real problem is that the more consumed you become by this new person and relationship, the more you’ll likely find them backing away:

Once you’ve had a chance to watch the Nugget, we’d love to hear how you’re going to put this week’s ‘To Do’ into practice to ensure you’re attracting – not repelling – potential or existing romantic partners.

 

We look forward to reading your comments below.

 

All our (non-clingy) love,

Hi ADs,

 

We’re well into bikini season, so today’s Life Nugget really couldn’t have come at a better time…

 

Do you find that the endless photos of skinny girls parading around the beach on your Facebook newsfeed, rather than inspiring you to eat more healthily, actually makes you eat even more crap?

 

Us too.

 

And, why wouldn’t they? When we look at images of people with the ‘perfect’ body, we instantly fall into a spiral of shame & self-loathing, which leads us to self-sabotage our own positive efforts to look and feel our best.

 

What’s the bloody point, we tell ourselves, as we reach for the nearest pack of jammie dodgers or chocolate hobnobs for a quick pick-me-up.

 

 

In today’s Skype Nugget, Ricki Lake’s protégée Isabel Foxon Duke shares with us her 3 top tips to help you stop this diet-binge cycle & get you back ‘on the wagon’ in no time.

 

 

In a society that spends billions of pounds every year in a bid to lose weight, it’s really easy to forget that:

Once you’ve watched the Nuggy, make sure you get stuck in to the ‘To Do’ of the day asap and let us know in the comments below how you found the experience of “surrendering to the craving”.

 

 

(Note: this exercise has completely revolutionised our relationship with our ‘forbidden foods’ – don’t miss it!)

 

 

We’re so grateful for your time, as always.

 

Love,

“When you’re triggered by the little things, there’s usually some unresolved big thing.” @AddictiveDau #GetAddictedToTheGoodStuff

 


Hey ADs,

Recognise any of the following situations?:

 

You miss the bus by two minutes, and it’s as if you just missed your flight to Australia, you’re so livid.

 

Your friend’s twenty minutes late meeting you at the cinema, and you decide then and there that she’s always been a selfish cow and this is the last time you bother making plans with her.

 

The guy you’re dating doesn’t text you for 24 hours, and you resolve never to contact him again because he’s clearly met someone else. In fact, you’re going to swear off men altogether because “they’re all the bloody same.”

 

Over-reacting to the smallest things: We’ve all been there.

 

The funny thing is, the exact same situation could happen on a different day and you’d feel absolutely fine about it and respond like a normal human being.

 

So, why all the drama this time around?

 

In today’s Life Nugget, we’ll reveal to you the real reason for your unnecessary emotional outburst, and share with you a simple tool to help stop it in its tracks.

 

Sometimes, we erupt over the little things because we’re not dealing with the big things that are going on for us. In other words:

“Don’t talk to people who aren’t there.” @AddictiveDau #GetAddictedToTheGoodStuff

 

 

Hi ADs,

 

We’re curious:

 

Do you ever find yourself feeling angry or resentful at a friend or loved one, and then launching into a full-blown argument with them in your head in which you imagine their responses?

 

We do – all the time!

 

The thing is, there’s a weird sadistic pleasure that comes from controlling another person’s words like this – probably because we get to feel morally superior and smug and “win” the fight every time.

 

But, let’s be honest, productive a pastime this ain’t.

  

In fact, if anything, it only serves to aggravate the problem by increasing your resentment ten-fold, causing you to bring all manner of negative vibes to your next real-life conversation with said person.

 

In today’s Life Nugget, we offer a simple tip to help you step away from this nasty habit so that you can free up your headspace for some much more fruitful & pleasant thoughts.

 

Although it can feel extremely satisfying to engage in these crazy internal duologues, it’s worth remembering that:

Once you’ve watched the video, we’d love you to share your own experience around “talking to people who aren’t there” in the comments section below – you’ll soon realise we’re all just as crazy as each other 😉

 

Big love,

Persia & Joey
