Indeed, 2020 seems to be an endless cycle of bad news. We are constantly being bombarded with negativity on social media, news channels, articles, and even news bites from our friends and family. While it is important to stay informed on what is going on around us, it can also be detrimental to our mental health to be constantly reading or watching negative news.
How we start each morning can have a big impact on the rest of the day. But we all have much to do and think about, so it’s not always easy to find peace in the first few hours. Plus, 20-30 minutes of meditation is daunting for those new to mindfulness or with hectic schedules. But don’t worry. I will walk you through a super quick, super easy mindfulness exercise to help ground you in just a few minutes each morning.
When you’re anxious or depressed, it can feel next to impossible to fight mental fatigue and summon the energy to function for the day. So above all else, be kind and patient with yourself. When you’re lacking energy, for whatever reason, it’s your body trying to tell you something. Whatever the reason, there are some natural ways you can help yourself get back into a natural balance. Here are eight places to start.
Music is amazing for mental health. It has the ability to soothe and de-stress. Everyone has their own taste in music, of course, but most people will agree it has a therapeutic effect on them. And that effect can influence both our bodies and our minds. Especially if the music is slower and calming. For this reason, music can also be really helpful for those who struggle with anxiety. Here are three ways music is beneficial for anxiety.
When you’re living with the side effects of trauma, grief, pain, depression, anxiety, or stress, you might find yourself hiding away from loved ones, not showing up to social plans, or avoiding communication with others—ultimately, falling more and more into social isolation. A lot of trauma survivors will isolate themselves because they feel like other people in their lives don’t understand what they’re going through. Another reason is fear of rubbing off on others or being a bother to them—or because they just don’t feel they have the energy anymore to be social. But as much as it feels like it right now, you are not alone—and realizing this is a crucial part of healing. Here are a few reminders for you.
We all have the right to feel happiness and abundance in our lives. No matter where you are on your journey, there is HOPE on the other side. Sometimes life has big highs… and sometimes we experience extreme lows. You might be experiencing apathy, depression, or anxiety due to something that happened to you in life. Whatever the details and size of your rough patch, there are ways to begin the process of adding abundance back into your life. Here are some tips to guide you through that process.
