Why Betrayal Can Cause Trauma and How to Start Healing

5:10 pm 8 May 2021 Pepe Store USER 0 Comments

If someone close to you has ever broken your trust, you’ve probably felt the sting of betrayal. This pain can leave deep wounds.

Any type of betrayal can cause emotional distress, but you might experience lingering trauma when someone you depend on to respect your needs and generally help safeguard your well-being violates the trust you’ve placed in them.

Betrayal trauma typically refers to the lingering pain and turmoil experienced after:

    betrayal by a parent or other childhood caregiver
    betrayal by a romantic partner

When you rely on someone for basic needs as well as love and protection, you might accept a betrayal in order to ensure your own safety.

You might also find yourself accepting the possibility of future betrayals — something that can begin to degrade self-esteem, emotional well-being, and the ability to form attachments with others.

Children as Young as 12 May Soon Have Access to COVID-19 Vaccine

5:00 pm 8 May 2021 Pepe Store USER 0 Comments

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to authorize the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children and teens between 12 and 15 years old by early next week.

This is according to federal officials who spoke to The New York Times.

In early April, Pfizer-BioNTech requested an amendment of the existing emergency use authorization (EUA) to expand use of the vaccine to this younger age group.

Right now, their vaccine is only approved in the United States for those 16 years old and over.

The FDA is currently reviewing data submitted by Pfizer and BioNTech.

The companies reported at the end of March that a phase 3 clinical trial involving 2,260 12- to 15-year-olds showed that the vaccine had an efficacy of 100 percent in this age group. It was also well tolerated.

Work Depression: How to Take Care of Your Mental Health on the Job

6:11 am 8 May 2021 Jose Fernandez 0 Comments

If you feel depressed when working, you’re not alone. Sadness, anxiety, loss of motivation, difficulty concentrating, unexplained bouts of crying, and boredom are just a small sampling of the things you may be feeling if you’re experiencing depressive symptoms at work.

Depression impacts over 17 million American adults each year.

And data from the State of Mental Health in America 2021 survey shows that the number of people seeking help for depression increased significantly from 2019 to 2020.

There was a 62 percent increase in people who took the survey’s depression screen — and of those people, 8 in 10 tested positive for symptoms of moderate to severe depression.

When you consider that full-time employees spend an average of 8.5 hours per day working on weekdays and 5.5 hours working on weekends and holidays, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it comes as no surprise that many of them will experience symptoms of depression while on the job.

Read on to find out why work might be triggering depressive symptoms, how to identify the signs, where to get help, and what you can do to start feeling better.

An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away — Fact or Fiction?

5:31 am 8 May 2021 Jose Fernandez 0 Comments

You likely know the familiar expression, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

While the phrase was first coined in 1913, it was based on a Pembrokeshire proverb that originated in 1866.

In fact, Notes and Queries magazine was the first to publish the original quote: “Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.”

Although research shows that eating more apples may not actually be associated with fewer visits to the doctor, adding apples to your diet can help improve several aspects of your health. Read More →

Mindful Listening – A way to heal our world

7:57 am 1 May 2021 Jose Fernandez 0 Comments

Mindful listening is a form of deep listening which encompasses listening with our whole body. Many of us, without realising it, don’t listen fully. We tend to think about what we are going to say next. We make judgements. We offer solutions. And sometimes we try to divert the conversation onto something we want to talk about.

We all want to feel heard. When someone truly listens it validates our feelings, it demonstrates genuine caring and interest. It helps us feel okay about who we are and what we are experiencing in a way that offering someone a solution rarely does.

Meditate Your Way to Success

7:54 am 1 May 2021 Jose Fernandez 0 Comments

A martial artist once asked Bruce Lee, to teach him all that he knew about martial arts. Bruce held up two cups both filled with liquid and said, “The first cup represents all of your knowledge about martial arts. The second cup represents all of my knowledge about martial arts. If you want to fill your cup with my knowledge, you must first empty your cup of your knowledge.”

To create a life you love, find solutions to problems or discover what your life calling is you need to ’empty your cup’ by quietening the left hemisphere of your brain. The left hemisphere is the logical, analytical part of the brain that processes information sequentially. Give this part of your brain a problem and it will work on finding a practical solution for you. The brain is a wonderful tool, however, if you don’t know what you want, or you don’t know how to create what you want, logic, reason and analysis can have you going around and around in circles. This can lead to feelings of frustration or uncertainty and that’s when it sometimes gets too hard and we settle for what is.

How to create a Christmas Calm Down Kit

1:24 pm 28 April 2021 Jose Fernandez 0 Comments

Christmas can be a tough time for kiddos. Especially for our more sensitive little people – toddlers and preschoolers, the kids who experience anxiety, the ones who struggle with emotion regulation, the kids with sensory processing difficulties and special needs. Christmas can be hugely overwhelming for many of our little ones.

And of course, I created the Mindfulness for children to help you set up a calming, quiet space for your kids and to teach them how to self regulate when they experience big emotions. But Christmas, with its often over the top sensory experiences, and extra social expectations and obligations can bring its own unique set of challenges. And I’m frequently asked – what can I do when we’re not in the house and we can’t use our calm down space? How do I help my child then?

So I’ve put together something a bit special to help your kids (and you!) manage some of those BIG feelings that come up more often at Christmas time. Mindfulness for Children. This kit is designed to support your child to process their big emotions during the holiday season. It contains Christmas themed activities and resources that your child will love to use AND, it’s a bit smaller than the original calm down kit, because it’s designed to be more portable.
