Protecting Yourself When Starting In A Controversial Field

Every single human on the face of the planet is different. Whether you have things in common with someone else or not, it is just about impossible to find a person who will agree with you when it comes to every issue. This might make you appear controversial.

In some cases, people will feel very passionate about issues, acting in ways which other people would consider too extreme. Of course, though, you will also find those who feel strongly about something without any real cause. As a small business person working a potentially controversial field, learning how to handle this is a crucial part of the work you do.

We Need to Talk More About Mental Health And Finding A Therapist

Mental health discussion has been a huge topic of late including the need to speak with a therapist. It’s real and needs to be discussed because it’s invisible. And just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not there.

Do you often go to work and feel a huge burden on your shoulders? Do you feel as though you are mentally incapable of changing your predicament? Or are you dealing with anxiety? These are just a few signs to encourage you to take care of YOU.

Knowing more about your psyche can be a gateway to discovering your strengths and with this knowledge, you can be able to use your emotions to empathize with colleagues or clients. Feeling authentic and open at work has been reported to lead to better performance, employee retention, engagement, and improved wellbeing.

Building A Supportive Network Around Your Creative Passion

If you were to believe the romantic representation in the media, you might think that embarking in a creative career – full-time or as a side hustle – can be liberating and empowering.

While there is no denying that your creative passion can isolate you from your community. Being creative, it’s ultimately using your soul as a product on the market. Needless to say, it can be a solitary and challenging experience that forces you to question your sense of self-worth when you’re rejected.

How Telehealth Can Help With Medical Advice

Something that I tell myself and whoever cares enough to listen is that you can never be doing too much when it comes to taking care of your health – physically and mentally! This is where I love the idea of telehealth or telemedicine.

The first time I got introduced into the world of telehealth was after receiving my benefits information for a new job I had recently started once I was done with my Post-Graduate. As an immigrant, it was new to me. I remember being told that I could download an app and will have access to a number of doctors for listed health issues.

I never really got around to using it as much as I should have, but I was able to use it for prescription deliveries when needed. It was a way to stay on track of my health needs and reading about other benefits fascinated me at the time.

Overcoming The Extreme Worries Of Running A Restaurant

An overwhelming majority of restaurants close in the first three years of their opening. In your local town or city, you’ve likely noticed the revolving changes of restaurants in the rental spaces around your area, and as you live there longer, you will notice more and more cropping up.

Running a restaurant is hard, highly competitive, and can never be considered a static process. It is a dynamic responsibility that is very hard and requires an immense amount of work. But when things are running as planned, it can be one of the most enjoyable businesses to take care of.

The hospitality industry is known for its high standards and uniform consideration when running that style of business, but it is possible to have your own take on it. More importantly, though, is that you learn how to run a business without worrying to the point of being paralyzed, and can instead focus on learning, taking part, and enjoying your trade fully. With our following advice, we hope you can do just that.

How To Use Social Media To Improve Your Mental Health

Towards the end of last year, it became clear it will be a good idea to detach from anything that seemed stressful which included, social media. When I started blogging, the intent was to share content with others whose ideas resonated with mine – most especially workplace issues.

Overtime, to get people to read my content I had to promote it via social media. At the time, my interpretation of this meant that I had to do the things I enjoyed doing but in a more aggressive way.
