The Relationship Cycle

The Relationship Cycle

Being apart of many Facebook support groups I noticed a lot of adolescents suffering from some sort of depression caused by break ups and relationship drama.  I believe by understanding our emotions and human behaviours we can be armed with a good understanding of how we act as humans.  With this ammunition we can better train our minds to prepare and look for some behaviours to understand some of the situations life throws at us.  In past posts I went into some common emotions we see as negative to see how they can help us; In this article I am going through what I believe is a basic cycle of many relationships.  I cannot speak for all relationships but I have noticed these common behaviours in a large number of relationships my friends, family and even I had.

Your Vibes Attract Your Tribes: An In-Depth Look

Your Vibes Attract Your Tribes: An In-Depth Look

Everywhere around us is negativity. Have you looked at the news lately? A large majority of our news is negative. This house is on fire, this person broke into this, and the traffic sucks, and the weather is mostly gloomy, blah, blah. We are bred into a negative world full of pessimists, reinforcing us to be negative beings, to bring the mood of everyone around us down.

Strategy: Using Breathing to Blow Away Stress

Strategy: Using Breathing to Blow Away Stress

A few years ago I was talking with a co-worker about general health and the topic of stress came up.  He taught me a bit about breathing with your diaphragm and how it generates some feel good hormones.  A few years later I was talking with a psychologist and I learned even more about this style of breathing. As I researched more about this topic, and started putting it into practice, I found my self even breathing this way in every day life, resulting in an overall increase in quality of life; and my state of being was much more peaceful.
