It's all about finding the good in the worst situations. How many times do you find your self pounding out the negatives? Be grateful for all you have! If you're in the middle of an argument stop! and tell the other person what you love about them, life's too short to hate!
For best results we recommend you start from the beginning of the articles as each posts may have references to past posts.
This simple animation tells some of the hardships of those with depression. Some people may say, “so what”, “suck it up”, or “think positive”. What some of these people need to know is it’s more then a mood. It’s when the depression sticks with you for weeks without any relief and it interferes with your everyday life, some times in almost all aspects of life, and that mood becomes a temperament or apart of your personality if it stays long enough.
I have been reflecting and thinking lots lately. I have been doing the gratitude challenge that I posted last week and while I was on Day 4 it said, “Write a short message of thanks for some of the ‘negative’ things in your life.” This made me realize something.

Here I am, lying on the floor of my room typing another blog post. I realized something today thinking about some previous blog posts: How to Pray and, To Love is to be Alert. It’s funny how some times you can realize the greatest things just by writing.
In one of my previous posts, To Love is to be Alert, I outlined the importance of being alert. It teaches us to see what is really out there that there are plenty of good things inside others and us. As you practices being alert take some time be alert not just in nature as your out for a walk but also in all aspects of your life, especially your relationships.

So… you want a good nights sleep? I am seeing a lot of people complaining about not getting enough sleep or not waking up rested on many social media posts. This is bad because it affects our overall mood/ mental health and it can even result in physical illness. What you may not realize about an ongoing lack of sleep is it can lead to things like depression and or anxiety; it can wreak havoc on our relationships (learned by personal experience) and give us a poor work ethic at our jobs.
My good friend and energy healer, Clayton told me to go for walks in nature more often. I originally just thought, “alright, that’s simple enough, I can do that!” What’s mind blowing is what it does to you.

So, you want to change your self? You want to conquer depression, you want to get rid of your bad habits, or… you just want to change whatever it is about yourself to become the you; The "You" that want to be.
Becoming the "you" that you want to be seems quite simple but like our gratitude challenge can be challenging at times. In this post I will explain a bit on how our brain works to help build an understanding of our exercises and how you can put this knowledge to work to greatly benefit yourself and to start the change you so desire today.
Oh great another challenge. Life’s pretty challenging as is, I get it, and we have stresses of our jobs, relationships, putting up with our in-laws, etcetera. What if I told you that this challenge was a bit different, what if it’s a challenge to reduce all that stress, improve your health, relationships, jobs and more! What if this challenge changes life for the better?
