Things To Be Grateful For In Life #1 – Waking Up In The Morning

We should all appreciate waking up in the morning. It’s a chance to breath new life, and another chance to conquer the things we’ve dreamed of (maybe we will conquer them today). Waking up in the morning gives us a bit of suspense because you don’t know what the day will bring. Maybe you’ll get that job offer or a call from someone special you met over the weekend. This is a new day that starts the moment you open your eyes. I think we all don’ appreciate, or just don’t understand, how a simple opening of the eyes sets things in motion for us. Your eyes open and your back into complete consciousness. You’re now ready to type those emails, make those phone calls, hit the gym, and consume the pasta waiting on the stove for you.

Sunday July 21, 2019 – #begrateful

We wake up in the morning looking at the things we don’t have or wishing things were different (I mean better). I know I have personally wished things were better or I was ahead in the stuff I was doing. For example, better business or even more money in the bank. But let’s face it, things are exactly the way they are supposed to be. By this I mean, God has s plan for everyone, and my time hasn’t come to conquer the world. So, I think to myself instead of beating myself over the things that are missing, let’s appreciate the things I have RIGHT NOW i.e. (knowledge, people, blessings, health). You see I realized it’s harder to keep a smile on your face and your head up high if you keep putting yourself down. You (yourself) are supposed to be your biggest FAN (cheerleader), and if you aren’t cheering for yourself then don’t expect others to. So, it’s time to –

Jennifer Lawrence And Her Battle With Social Anxiety

Celebrities often seem to live perfect lives. They have wealth, fans, and seemingly everything they might want. Photographs pop up showcasing their travels and what they do for fun or when away from a movie set or recording studio. However, underneath all the makeup, the status and the attention, every single celebrity is, in fact, human. They deal with the same issues everyday people experience on a daily basis. Some of these issues connect directly to anxiety, depression and other mental conditions. Jennifer Lawrence, the star of The Hunger Games franchise has come out in recent months to discuss her own ongoing battle with social anxiety. Unlike many other celebrities who keep their personal conditions a secret in order to maintain an ideal appearance to the outside world, Jennifer Lawrence stands as one of the few celebrities with anxiety who openly and honestly discusses her condition, how it’s affected her, and what she’s done both in the past and currently to combat her anxiety.

30 Common Cognitive Distortions – Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments

The brain continually processes information, whether a person is conscious of the fact or not. Much of this consists of signals sent to organs and areas of the body, to ensure functionality and maintain order. However, there are times where the brain attempts to convince a person of something that isn’t exactly true. From over analyzing an event to attempting to back up a bad decision with rational thought, nearly everyone experiences something known as a cognitive distortion.

Cognitive distortions do not fall under a one size fits all definition though. There are, in fact, many different variations of cognitive distortions. Identifying and understanding the most common variants can help an individual not only correct these distortions and prevent the mental distraction, but also learn why the brain acts as it does. Here are 30 of the most common cognitive distortions nearly any individual might experience in their given life.

I’m always looking for ways to make money from home. After being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, I found it hard for me to settle into a job away from home.

Why Bipolar Disorder is So Hard to Diagnose, and What You Can Do About It

It’s weird because we’re so used to having clear-cut answers in life. When I would have a cold, I would go to the doctor and he would prescribe antibiotics. The point is he knew what’s wrong with me and what needed to be done to make me feel better. I know bipolar disorder is a lot more complicated and I wish it wasn’t. For starters, I had symptoms of bipolar for three years before even seeking help. It’s because I had no clue about bipolar disorder and never heard of it. My psychiatrist was the first one to tell me I was bipolar and I asked him – what does that mean? He then explained it in detail. After was the long journey of trying to find the right combination of medications compatible with me. Medications with the least side-effects. At the same time, I started a lengthy research process on trying to find out as much as possible about bipolar disorder. It was a hard reading about a mental illness with no cure. A mental illness which takes time for you to find an equal ground or – find stability.
