|Being able to express ourselves in healthy and safe ways is one to the cornerstones of mental wellness. It is why therapy can be so helpful in managing our anxieties. It may also be why we love art.
|Stress is one of those things that everyone is going to experience some point in their life. There is no way around it. You are never going to get through your entire life without stressing about something, at some point.
|About 26% of American adults above the age of 18 experience mental disorders every year, and many other individuals suffer different kinds at one period or another within their lifetime. There are various causes of this condition - with anxiety disorders and substance abuse being a few.
|Most of us have taken the guidance of many people since we were children. We might call them teachers, coaches, mentors or guides. These terms are often used interchangeably so that we think of them as the same.
|By now we have all heard about self-care and all the amazing benefits it has to offer. But have you heard of the term emotional self-care?
|If you want to change the way you feel, change the way you are sitting or standing. A recent study found that your posture has a direct correlation on how you feel mentally. Unfortunately, for people with back pain, this option might not always be available.
|COVID-19 has taken its toll on pretty much everything, from the obvious things like the population’s health and the economy, to the not-so-obvious like people’s stress and anxiety levels. By using stress management techniques, you’ll be able to keep a positive mind during quarantine, even if you’re in a place with spikes and subsequent stiff restrictions.
|Deciding to give yourself a total life makeover doesn’t mean you have to sign up for Extreme Makeover. Besides the fact that the show was cancelled in 2007 (yes, I just now realized that 10+ years later), you shouldn’t want to turn yourself into Barbie nor have a midlife crisis as inspiration to improve yourself, mentally and physically. Sometimes, it’s easy to fall into a rut given the routine of life, am I right?
