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.

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.

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.

Book Review: The Obstacle is The Way by Ryan Holiday

In this article, I’ll review The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday. However, before I begin since this is my first book review, I’ll have to start by giving credit to my mother who thought it wise to take me along with her to the library when I was around 8 years or so.

At the time, she was studying for her masters. This little act has helped shape my life when it comes to areas of self-development even though at the time I was reading Barbie stories.

Even before her rigorous studying days/ months, my mother encouraged active reading by making us exchange books and then we’ll recommend books to each other. She and my father also created a mini-library in our house and I think all these fostered a reading culture in me.

6 Ways to Avoid Secondhand Stress at Work

Have you ever had the feeling that someone at work has passed down stress to you (secondhand stress)? It could just be a colleague that’s continually complaining about an issue to you.

This is called: secondhand stress.

According to scientists, stress is contagious. This explains why when your colleague is sighing loudly, complaining, shuffling pieces of paper and maybe sending you emails in capital letters to show urgency at work, you automatically feel stressed out and extremely anxious in no minute.

AnthroDesk Standing Desk: Living A Healthy Lifestyle As A Worker

Have you considered getting a standing desk? Especially if you often complain about a backache when you are at work. Do you sit for too long when working? It doesn’t even have to be at work alone.

For me who works a 9-5 as well as work on my side hustles, I find I’m tempted to work for too long on my laptop/ desk. One of the reasons, I love my wedding photography career or side hustle is because it affords me the opportunity to move around.

But these are some of the downsides of earning a living. Depending on the type of job you do, you might be sitting for too long or standing excessively. It’s left for us to make the right decisions to live a healthier life.
