Anybody here get colonics? Did you notice any life changing results?

I went through this phase of “cleansing” with smoothies and stuff. And I have to admit, it was a waste of money and I was totally misinformed. Gut is the most evolved part of our body. Modern science is not advanced enough yet to be able to improve it.

If you want to do something nice for your gut - go vegan & sugar-free for a week or two. The microbiome will change and your whole body will feel better.

I get them regularly. Wouldn’t say it was life changing but it helps when I eat terrible and I’m bloated or constipated.

Np!

Best to do them if you’re planning to do some kind of overall cleanse. At the end of a juice fast for example.

@CD4 vegan for seven years ✌🏼though cheese has crept back in for a year and that’s made a difference (and not in a good way). While prepping for the colonic I’ve been no-dairy again and feel better.

@CD4 Wow. Thanks for the colonic research. Oye! As for favorite vegan breakfasts I love quinoa (warm), with maple syrup, walnuts and fresh organic strawberries. Or Moxie bread toasted with almond butter, or toasted with Myoko’s butter and Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning.

Does anyone have any advice on how to transition away from an agency? We are extremely understaffed and failing to meet deadlines. It’s exhausting and stressful, and the pay is next to nothing. I’m ready to move on from the agency career. Any advice for job titles to search for or know of anyone who is hiring? (Preferably a remote job but open to anything!)

Ok. You’re leading a giant meeting on your own. You’re managing a bunch of guys and reviewing their work. Other agency people see these meetings and assume that you are CO leading with these people--

Not work related but I didn't know where else to post. I just broke up with my boyfriend of 4 years. He was my first real boyfriend. I dated other guys but nothing that lasted this long. I love him but I don't think I'm in love with him. He's my best friend and can't imagine life without him but I also can't imagine getting married to him. I miss him terribly and regret breaking up but at the same time I'm scared to give him the commitment he wants and deserves. What is wrong with me?!!

I’m on a new account that has male clients and the other agency leaders are male. I was in a meeting where we arrived in masks but they decided it wasn’t necessary to wear masks since we were all vaccinated. I have stayed masked internally at meetings but I was caught off guard by how the client dynamic influenced me to take mine off when I preferred to keep on. I looked up the stats and men are less likely to wear masks and more likely to find them off putting. Anybody else running into this?

I’m almost four years in the industry, all at one agency. I’m in a small market and can’t really move to another city. My most recent review was positively glowing, and was the first GOOD review I’ve ever gotten from my CD in the four years I’ve worked for him. I was promised a raise and a title change (technically I’m still a junior). I’m so annoyed and feel so used, i’m not even excited about the good review and recently sold work. Kinda feeling lost, I guess.
