Last time we learned about inisghts. Well insights are not all funĂ‚Â and games.Ă‚Â In ChapterĂ‚Â 23 of Comfort Secrets for Busy Women , Jennifer LoudenĂ‚Â says that attempting to live one of your insights is certain to stir your personal demon swamp.

Time monsters and shadow comforts come out to visit. We turn to the familiar instead of working through what might be more satisfying, but harder. Try resisting the shadow comfort – mindless TV, junk food, etc. and remain conscious to your uneasiness.
