Prepare for the Journey Ahead

Prepare for the Journey Ahead

Reflection: As I sit outside and feel the sun wash upon my face, I can’t help but smile. The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the sun is shining. Its days like these that make me feel as if there is nothing bad in this world. I wish this was true. Bad thoughts have a funny way of intruding upon the mind. They mostly come when we least expect it. This causes me to push myself to enjoy…

The Return

The Return

One Post to Rule Them All: I’ve been engulfed by a busy set of transitions these past couple of days and I haven’t had time to write much. The past week has been filled with a variety of changes; finishing my junior year, saying goodbye to friends who are graduating, and starting a new job. I have found myself bombarded with a ton of change all at once, and I, like most people, am hesitant to life changing. Needless to…

Change Up Your Routine

Change Up Your Routine

The Journey Ahead I’ve recently discovered a life-changing piece of advice: change up your routine. It has done wonders for my life and I know that it will impact yours as well. Changing routine is necessary and extremely important for people who struggle with depression and anxiety. This is because negative emotions will continue to pile up until they are too much to bear. The emotions then create a routine centered on them. The routine created is what turns our…

Blessings List

Blessings List

Challenge: Make a list of everything you are thankful for and look over it on a daily basis. Read the list every time you wake up and right before you go to sleep. Some areas to think about include family, friends, health, integrity, children, residence, country, faith, occupation, etc. It is easy to forget how much we are blessed with. Are you thankful for what you have?

Lows and Highs

Lows and Highs

Become familiar with how you react to different situations. When you understand how to counteract your “lows”, you will be able to truly experience your “highs”.

The Snowball Effect

The Snowball Effect

Imagine: Think of every day as winter. You walk outside and the ground is perfectly covered in a white blanket of snow. The birds are somehow still chirping. Your neighbor, Mrs. Jenson, calls over to you concerning her…ok, I’m getting too into this. Back to the point. (The snow is the most important part of this analogy so for those of you who are opposed to the cold, think of your favorite vacation spot…but with tons of snow everywhere) The…

How to Live

How to Live

Live in the present moment. Life is too short to take seriously. Drake said it best: “You only live once, that’s the motto, bro, YOLO.”…At least it was something like that.

Positive Self-Talk is Key

Positive Self-Talk is Key

Most people don’t understand the monumental influence that self-talk has on the human mind. We create our own mindsets. We have the power to influence our view of ourselves. Think of the brain as an objective pilot. Whether you give it a positive command, such as, “Achieve a smooth take-off”, or a negative command, such as, “Full-speed into the ground”, the brain will enforce what it is told. It utilizes no emotion in its actions. In order to take advantage of this fact,…

Understanding the Reset Button

Understanding the Reset Button

Every day is a new day. We are all given the gift of having a rest button. You control how to approach ever day. If I wanted to ask everyone I met how their day was going, then I have the freedom to do so. If I wanted to yell, “I’m a fan of large pineapples”, into everyone’s face, then I still have the ability to do so. Take advantage of your humanity!
