We spend so much of our lives comparing ourselves to others that we don’t really take the time to get to know ourselves. Beyond strengths and weaknesses, who are you as a person?
The more you know about yourself, the more chances that you’ll find things out you really like.

The minute you feel a panic attack coming on, the first thing to do is stop and gain control of your breath. Controlled breathing is one of the most powerful ways to activate your body’s relaxation response.

Every individual requires unique treatment methods to combat their symptoms of depression. While cognitive behavioral therapy and prescription medications work well for many people, many others may be helped by embracing a spiritual practice.

When we are stressed or anxious, we tend to over-breathe or under-breathe. This can cause dizziness and hyperventilation. Deep breathing is a powerful way to gain control over your breath and reaction to a panic attack.

What does it really mean to be kind with ourselves? It means that on a day-to-day basis we are mindful of being courteous, supportive and compassionate with ourselves. Why is this important? Because self-compassion helps us recognize our unconditional worth and value.

Have you ever found yourself feeling hangry? “Hangry,” a mash-up of the words “hungry” and “angry,” is used to describe people who become short and irritable due to hunger. But what does it really mean to be “hangry”? Why do some people get angry when they reach a certain level of hunger?

Having a healthy psychological well-being means you’re able to better manage your emotions as well as your mood. Gratitude is more than just a feeling; it is a choice. By choosing to be grateful, you can keep your mind distracted from negative thoughts.

Releasing yourself and loved ones from any past wounds is an important step in living a more authentic life. Holding onto anger or sadness will only be a burden. Release all resentment before carving out your new reality.

As soon as you feel the anxiety coming on, focus intently on your breathing and nothing else. Begin to take slow… deep breaths. Slow deep breaths send a signal to our body that we are not under attack and everything is okay.

Let your loved one know that you’re there to listen. Hold back judgment or unwanted advice, and simply be an ear. Let them know that they can call or text you any time to talk.
