Staying Calm In the Storm


Okay I will be honest with you.

The things that I can do that help me the most, that relax me the most, that heal me the most, are the last things on my mind during times of challenge or stress. 

So I literally have to make a list of these things, and then be very aware and conscious that I actually do these things.

For me it can be simply sitting and playing guitar with no intention.(Such as learning a song for a gig) Just playing. Just enjoying the sounds and playing purely for myself.

Writing is also a go-to thing for me. Get involved in a writing project. Or a drawing/art project, or why not meditate more often and sit in the stillness? Or take a walk around the neighborhood and admire the scenery. read more

Searching around on the internet I found a lot of information about symptoms of depression, and while searching, I came across an article called “The Five Symptoms of Depression” (see the article HERE) read more
