Spirituality and You

posted Tuesday, September 26, 2017

by: in Mental Health / Self-Help

I’ve never considered myself religious, albeit the fact that I went to church with my great aunt until age 12. I think I was more excited to discover a brand new pack of pink bubble gum in the glove box of her car each week than actually attending and participating in church activities. Until recently, […]

Who doesn’t love being absorbed into a fantastic psychological thriller? I certainly do! Today I’ve decided to share with you my favourite movies. I’m sure there are some great newer thrillers to share with you, but since I live under a rock (hello, 1997!) you’ll just have to watch these classics until I catch up […]

4 Reasons to start art journaling

posted Thursday, May 11, 2017

by: in Mental Health / Self-Help

Don’t let the word ‘art’ deter you from reading this blog! I am not what I consider to be artistic but I love art journaling. (In fact, I was so absolutely not artistic that my 4th grade teacher actually encouraged me to skip art class and write instead.) It sounds contradictory- art journaling not being […]

Have bad moments, not bad days

posted Sunday, March 19, 2017

by: in Mental Health / Self-Help

We all have what we deem “bad days”. Even that cheery, smiley secretary at the doctor’s office who is always doing “just super” and you wonder who spiked her Cheerios. Sometimes we have even worse days. Have you heard of Murphy’s Law? It is based on the premise that anything that can go wrong, will […]

Finding help for mental health on the internet

posted Monday, February 27, 2017

by: in Mental Health / Self-Help

In my opinion, there is nothing better than real life, in person help for mental health concerns. But the reality is that there are so many barriers to these types of interactions: rural locations, stigma, finances, social and cultural norms, internal pressure…the list is (unfortunately) endless. The good news is that we live in an […]

How To Be Kinder to You in 2017

posted Friday, December 30, 2016

by: in Mental Health / Self-Help

Are you hard on yourself? Me too. I was a terribly sensitive child (oh, how I have come to hate the word ‘sensitive’!) right from the get-go, seemingly doomed to a life consumed with self-hatred and setting unrelenting, unattainable standards for myself. My parents parenting skills were not lacking, it’s just that their comforting methods […]

TED talks can change your life…

posted Monday, October 10, 2016

by: in Mental Health / Self-Help

If you let them, of course. But first, a definition of what TED is: TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business […]
