3 relaxation exercises to decrease stress

Stress is a part of life. In fact, it serves a vital role in keeping us protected from potential dangers. The body reacts to a stressful situation by increasing your heart rate and breathing to deliver a powerful boost of blood and oxygen to the muscles and lungs. Plus, the mind becomes more alert, and the senses sharpen as the body prepares to either fight or flee from any perceived threat.

Autism Spectrum Disorder Information

The fact that Autism Spectrum Disorder exists as a spectrum means all people can place themselves somewhere on this spectrum. Indeed, the characteristics that make up autism are part of how neurotypical people (people who are not on the autism spectrum) experience the world as well. I find this to be something that allows us to more deeply empathize and understand the challenges that our friends, family members, and clients with autism face. Autism is characterized by significant impairment in 3 areas: communication, social interaction, and interests/behaviors. Let"s take a look at how neurotypical people can expand our understanding to better support those living with autism. Throughout this post, I will refer to people with autism in a variety of ways. Some individuals with autism prefer to be called "autistic" while others may prefer to be referred to as "a person on the autism spectrum". When you"re not sure how someone would like to be referred as, just ask! If they are nonverbal you can ask their family or caretakers.

Art Therapy

Have you had an experience that is difficult or even impossible to put into words? Some experiences are like that; they defy our ability to find language to describe them. Art Therapy relies more upon your art-making rather than talking. It"s important, though, that artistic skill or ability is not necessary. It"s your experience of making art that is important, not the end product but still you might be very happy about and proud of your work.

Can a stuffed animal help your loved on with dementia

If you are caring for a loved one with dementia, you may have struggled with finding ways to keep them calm and engaged. Have you ever considered a stuffed animal? Don"t be too quick to dismiss the idea. Stuffed animals aren"t just for kids. People of all ages can find joy and comfort in stuffed animals, but those with dementia may be in a position to benefit from them a little more than most. Why it May Help If you"re a pet person, you"re well aware of the calming, grounding effect that an animal can have, especially one you enjoy a close bond with. Have you ever come home from a stressful day at work and felt some of that stress melt away when your dog came bounding to the door to meet you? Or maybe you"ve felt your tension ease a bit at the sound of your cat"s rhythmic purr as she rubbed her head contentedly on your hand.

Stimulant Addiction and Abuse

Stimulants are a broad classification that includes many different substances. These drugs include common compounds such as caffeine and nicotine, illicit substances such as cocaine and meth, and prescription amphetamines such as Ritalin, Adderall, and Concerta. Stimulants work by increasing dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain, which triggers the brain"s reward system and the body"s cardiovascular system, respectively. The increase in these chemicals improves concentration and decreases fatigue, desirable effects for those with stress, narcolepsy, or treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This makes stimulants very popular and commonly abused, especially among young adults seeking to outperform their peers in academics, athletics, or in the workforce. While stimulants can provide beneficial short-term effects, long-term abuse of these drugs often has severe consequences such as cardiovascular damage and a risk of addiction.

The mental trick that helped me claw way my back from debilitating anxiety

Throughout my teens and the entirety of my twenties, it seemed like I was weathering one health-related disaster after another. At fifteen, I was hospitalized with ovarian cysts giant, fluid-filled sacs that would spontaneously rupture and leave me vomiting and doubled over in pain within a matter of minutes. At twenty, I underwent emergency surgery for a kidney stone obstruction while I was studying abroad in southern India. (If you've never had the misfortune of trying to squeeze out a kidney stone over a squat toilet, consider yourself lucky). Then, at twenty-five, my unborn son was diagnosed with a permanently paralyzing disability. Throughout all of this, a latent anxiety disorder sprouted, and then bloomed.

FAQs for Partners of Sex Addicts

So you think your significant other is a sex addict? This list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) and their answers may help shed light on the topic for you. What is sex addiction? Sex addiction is an obsessive relationship to sexual thoughts, fantasies or activities that an individual continues to engage in despite adverse consequences. These thoughts, fantasies or activities occupy a disproportionate amount of "psychic space," resulting in an imbalance in the person"s overall functioning in important areas of life, such as work and marriage. Distress, shame and guilt about the behaviors erode the addict"s already weak self-esteem. Sexual addiction can be conceptualized as an intimacy disorder manifested as a compulsive cycle of preoccupation, ritualization, sexual behavior, and despair. Central to the disorder is the inability of the individual to adequately bond and attach in intimate relationships. The syndrome is rooted in early attachment failure with primary caregivers. It is a maladaptive way to compensate for this early attachment failure. Addiction is a symbolic enactment of deeply entrenched unconscious dysfunctional relationships with self and others.

Some of the most important advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders in the last decade have come from an improved understanding of trauma and trauma-related disorders. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is arguably the most well-known trauma-related disorder. Improvements in its diagnosis and treatment have increased understanding of other conditions and changed the mental health landscape.

The mental trick that helped me claw way my back from debilitating anxiety

Throughout my teens and the entirety of my twenties, it seemed like I was weathering one health-related disaster after another. At fifteen, I was hospitalized with ovarian cysts giant, fluid-filled sacs that would spontaneously rupture and leave me vomiting and doubled over in pain within a matter of minutes. At twenty, I underwent emergency surgery for a kidney stone obstruction while I was studying abroad in southern India. (If you've never had the misfortune of trying to squeeze out a kidney stone over a squat toilet, consider yourself lucky). Then, at twenty-five, my unborn son was diagnosed with a permanently paralyzing disability. Throughout all of this, a latent anxiety disorder sprouted, and then bloomed.

7 Powerful Relaxation Techniques

The stress of modern life can make real relaxation an elusive dream. Yet there is no reason life has to be filled with anxiety and stress. If you take some time to learn the art of relaxation, you can easily rediscover the enjoyment in life. The secret of relaxation is a controlled state of mind. For example, you could spend a whole hour in a health spa; but, if you spend the whole time worrying about what will happen tomorrow, how can you relax?

Nine Essential Qualities of Mindfulness

Most people these days are stressed out by the fast pace of life, economy, and worries about the future. In a recent survey, conducted in the UK, a whopping 86 percent agreed that "people would be much happier and healthier if they knew how to slow down and live in the moment" (Mental Health Foundation, 2010). It is no wonder that mindfulness has rapidly gained attention in the popular press and is one of the few complementary medicine techniques to be offered in hospitals and clinics worldwide. But what exactly is mindfulness?

Art Therapy

Have you had an experience that is difficult or even impossible to put into words? Some experiences are like that; they defy our ability to find language to describe them. Art Therapy relies more upon your art-making rather than talking. It"s important, though, that artistic skill or ability is not necessary. It"s your experience of making art that is important, not the end product but still you might be very happy about and proud of your work.

Rupture and Repair: Emotions, Attunement, and Attachment

"Why do some children become sad, withdrawn, insecure, or angry, whereas others become happy, curious, affectionate, and self-confident?" developmental psychologist Edward Tronick, Ph.D. asked in a 1989 paper called "Emotions and Emotional Communication in Infants." The answer lies in large part with the quality of emotional communication, or attunement, between parent and child. We don"t get this important education in emotions in our formal schooling, yet we really need it to do right by our children.

Autism Spectrum Disorder Information

The fact that Autism Spectrum Disorder exists as a spectrum means all people can place themselves somewhere on this spectrum. Indeed, the characteristics that make up autism are part of how neurotypical people (people who are not on the autism spectrum) experience the world as well. I find this to be something that allows us to more deeply empathize and understand the challenges that our friends, family members, and clients with autism face. Autism is characterized by significant impairment in 3 areas: communication, social interaction, and interests/behaviors. Let"s take a look at how neurotypical people can expand our understanding to better support those living with autism. Throughout this post, I will refer to people with autism in a variety of ways. Some individuals with autism prefer to be called "autistic" while others may prefer to be referred to as "a person on the autism spectrum". When you"re not sure how someone would like to be referred as, just ask! If they are nonverbal you can ask their family or caretakers.

The ketogenic diet has been used since the 1920's for the treatment of epilepsy, and is often effective when medications and even surgery fail to work. The ketogenic diet is known to affect the brain in many ways that may help psychiatric disorders in addition to epilepsy. It is well established that anti-epileptic medications are often useful in the treatment of psychiatric disorders, including mood and psychotic disorders, so it is reasonable to think that it might be an effective treatment for psychiatric disorders as well. Additionally, obesity and diabetes are seen at much higher rates in people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and the ketogenic diet can be used to address these two important medical issues."

6 mindfulness exercises, 1 minute each

Instead of attempting to do mindful eating all the time, try mindful eating for the first two bites of any meal or snack. For the first two bites of any meal or snack you eat, pay attention to the sensory experiences - the texture, taste, smell, and appearance of the food, and the sounds when you bite into your food. You don't need to savor per se, you're just paying attention to your sensory experience in an experiential rather than evaluative way.

Can a stuffed animal help your loved on with dementia

If you are caring for a loved one with dementia, you may have struggled with finding ways to keep them calm and engaged. Have you ever considered a stuffed animal? Don"t be too quick to dismiss the idea. Stuffed animals aren"t just for kids. People of all ages can find joy and comfort in stuffed animals, but those with dementia may be in a position to benefit from them a little more than most. Why it May Help If you"re a pet person, you"re well aware of the calming, grounding effect that an animal can have, especially one you enjoy a close bond with. Have you ever come home from a stressful day at work and felt some of that stress melt away when your dog came bounding to the door to meet you? Or maybe you"ve felt your tension ease a bit at the sound of your cat"s rhythmic purr as she rubbed her head contentedly on your hand.

The Ketogenic diet in medicine and psychiatry

"This presentation will review the ketogenic diet, its safety, and its use in treating obesity, diabetes, and psychiatric disorders. The ketogenic diet has been used since the 1920's for the treatment of epilepsy, and is often effective when medications and even surgery fail to work. The ketogenic diet is known to affect the brain in many ways that may help psychiatric disorders in addition to epilepsy. It is well established that anti-epileptic medications are often useful in the treatment of psychiatric disorders, including mood and psychotic disorders, so it is reasonable to think that it might be an effective treatment for psychiatric disorders as well. Additionally, obesity and diabetes are seen at much higher rates in people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and the ketogenic diet can be used to address these two important medical issues."

Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder)

What is dissociative identity disorder (DID)? Dissociative identity disorder (DID) was formerly called multiple personality disorder. People with DID develop one or more alternate personalities that function with or without the awareness of the person"s usual personality. DID is one of a group of conditions called dissociative disorders. Dissociative disorders are mental illnesses that involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, consciousness or awareness, identity and/or perception mental functions that normally work smoothly. When one or more of these functions is disrupted, dissociative symptoms can result. These symptoms can be mild, but they can also be severe to the point where they interfere with a person"s general functioning, both in personal life and at work.

Disability Evaluation Under Social Security

Disability Evaluation Under Social Security has been specially prepared to provide physicians and other health professionals with an understanding of the disability programs administered by the Social Security Administration. It explains how each program works, and the kinds of information a health professional can furnish to help ensure sound and prompt determinations and decisions on disability claims. The Listing of Impairments, which includes listings for both adults and children, appear in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in appendix 1 to subpart P of part 404 . We also provide them here. The listings are just part of how we decide if someone is disabled. For adults, we also consider past work experience, severity of medical conditions, age, education, and work skills. We no longer publish Disability Evaluation Under Social Security in hardcopy because we publish updated versions of the Listing of Impairments electronically.

Cocaine Addition & Treatment

Cocaine is a highly addictive and dangerous illicit substance that plague millions of Americans each year. Learn here about the dangers, warning signs, and how cocaine addiction can be treated. Cocaine Abuse Cocaine is a powerful recreational drug most commonly available in a white powder or solid white rock. It is generally snorted, swallowed, injected, or smoked and is highly addictive. Each method comes with its own additional side-effects. For example, snorting cocaine may cause damage to the nasal tissue, and smoking causes respiratory issues.

This book encourages couples to communicate with each other early on to head off disagreements after the knot is tied. From wet towels to managing the check book, hundreds of questions on such topics are inluded, such as sex, in-laws, having children, pets, cooking, food preferences, exercise and fitness, housecleaning, traveling, household economics, interior decorating, religion, and politics.

Info on HIV prevention Drug- PrEP

PrEP is a once-a-day pill for people who do not have HIV and want added protection. It is available by prescription, and must be taken every day like birth control but for HIV prevention. While PrEP is highly effective in preventing HIV, it does not protect against other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Condoms protect against most other STDs, as well as HIV and pregnancy.

Washington Mental Health Services Guide

Many people don't realize that publicly-funded mental health services are available in their state. People looking for free or low-cost counseling often think their only options are counselors in private practice and don't know that publicly-funded providers in their communities may also offer counseling services. While state-based programs are not for everyone, they are often a great place to start for people who face geographic or financial barriers to therapy. Intake specialists at community mental health programs can help people learn whether they qualify for state-funded services and can refer people who don't qualify to other low-cost programs that may be able to meet their needs.

Home Care Home care is provided by caregivers, usually called home care aides, who are trained to understand the nuances of senior care. Home care aides can help older adults with activities of daily living, or just offer some friendly companionship. Unlike home health, home care is classified as personal care or companion care and is considered "unskilled" or "non-clinical."

Nine Essential Qualities of Mindfulness

Most people these days are stressed out by the fast pace of life, economy, and worries about the future. In a recent survey, conducted in the UK, a whopping 86 percent agreed that "people would be much happier and healthier if they knew how to slow down and live in the moment" (Mental Health Foundation, 2010). It is no wonder that mindfulness has rapidly gained attention in the popular press and is one of the few complementary medicine techniques to be offered in hospitals and clinics worldwide. But what exactly is mindfulness?

6 mindfulness exercises, 1 minute each

Instead of attempting to do mindful eating all the time, try mindful eating for the first two bites of any meal or snack. For the first two bites of any meal or snack you eat, pay attention to the sensory experiences - the texture, taste, smell, and appearance of the food, and the sounds when you bite into your food. You don't need to savor per se, you're just paying attention to your sensory experience in an experiential rather than evaluative way.

3 relaxation exercises to decrease stress

Stress is a part of life. In fact, it serves a vital role in keeping us protected from potential dangers. The body reacts to a stressful situation by increasing your heart rate and breathing to deliver a powerful boost of blood and oxygen to the muscles and lungs. Plus, the mind becomes more alert, and the senses sharpen as the body prepares to either fight or flee from any perceived threat.

Relieve stress with these powerful breathing exercises

One of the most helpful pieces of knowledge I have learned so far in my career was from a gentleman named Eric Gentry. He is a licensed psychotherapist and a PhD of Psychology. He specializes in working with people who have experienced trauma among many other things. He presented at a seminar I attended several years ago and opened my eyes to the wonderful world of the Vagus Nerve. No, not Vegas as in dancers and sunshine and party time. Vagus as in, one of the most important parts of our body that can either make us feel really good or make us feel really bad. Imagine this beauty running close to parallel to the spine, from the base of your skull down down down to your tailbone. Believe me, you want to be BFF's with your Vagus nerve because it can help you calm your body, regulate your emotions and aid in your digestive system. Are you feeling anxious right now? That's because your body is holding very tight all around your Vagus nerve. It probably feels uncomfortable, right???

6 mindfulness exercises, 1 minute each

Instead of attempting to do mindful eating all the time, try mindful eating for the first two bites of any meal or snack. For the first two bites of any meal or snack you eat, pay attention to the sensory experiences - the texture, taste, smell, and appearance of the food, and the sounds when you bite into your food. You don't need to savor per se, you're just paying attention to your sensory experience in an experiential rather than evaluative way.

The Ketogenic diet in medicine and psychiatry

"This presentation will review the ketogenic diet, its safety, and its use in treating obesity, diabetes, and psychiatric disorders. The ketogenic diet has been used since the 1920's for the treatment of epilepsy, and is often effective when medications and even surgery fail to work. The ketogenic diet is known to affect the brain in many ways that may help psychiatric disorders in addition to epilepsy. It is well established that anti-epileptic medications are often useful in the treatment of psychiatric disorders, including mood and psychotic disorders, so it is reasonable to think that it might be an effective treatment for psychiatric disorders as well. Additionally, obesity and diabetes are seen at much higher rates in people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and the ketogenic diet can be used to address these two important medical issues."

Info on HIV prevention Drug- PrEP

PrEP is a once-a-day pill for people who do not have HIV and want added protection. It is available by prescription, and must be taken every day like birth control but for HIV prevention. While PrEP is highly effective in preventing HIV, it does not protect against other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Condoms protect against most other STDs, as well as HIV and pregnancy.

7 Powerful Relaxation Techniques

The stress of modern life can make real relaxation an elusive dream. Yet there is no reason life has to be filled with anxiety and stress. If you take some time to learn the art of relaxation, you can easily rediscover the enjoyment in life. The secret of relaxation is a controlled state of mind. For example, you could spend a whole hour in a health spa; but, if you spend the whole time worrying about what will happen tomorrow, how can you relax?

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Some of the most important advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders in the last decade have come from an improved understanding of trauma and trauma-related disorders.
