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…

18

18

For some odd reason, I always had the impression that when I turned 18 some kind of special golden gate would open and I’d have some huge epiphany about life. Yet here I am, a freshly new young adult, as I just recently had my 18th birthday and the feeling is quite surreal. Honestly, if there’s any emotion attached to the milestone of age 18 for me, its anxiety.I am now legally an adult, and many conditions, positive and negative,…

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.

Pain A feeling of discomfort In the palm of my hand Drilling through my white t-shirt In the dripping wet sand A sharp pain in my side A quick intake of breath Struggling to maintain my stride No time for my death A cloak of numbness falls over me The pain refuses to subside Unable to see Unable to enjoy the ride Engulfed by flames of fire Swallowed up by the raging sea My only desire Is to be free

Thoughts: A Poem

Thoughts: A Poem

Trapped inside my own mind A prison with no walls, yet nowhere to hide Looking for some way out The constant struggle from day to day Battling with my fears The nights are always filled with tears I don’t understand this pain This emotion inside of me I know the Lord is real and with me Yet I question my purpose Blinded by only what my eyes can see I feel so much anger Why did he have to take…

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…
