We are not on this planet to just โ€˜coastโ€™ through life. We are here to grow & develop. The lessons that we are meant to learn donโ€™t always come easy, sometimes they come hard & knock us right off our feet. The Universe will not give you more than you can carry, I am sure you have heard this many times before & itโ€™s totally true. โฃ โฃ Whenever you feel like you canโ€™t handle the situation you are in or you are just really struggling with something, just sit with yourself for a minute. Check in & tell yourself something like this โ€œYou know what Iโ€™ve made it this far in my life, so I know Iโ€™ve got this. I have totally got this. I am here for myself every step of the way. It may not be easy but I am here & Iโ€™ve got you & I love you.โ€ This is called ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ง-๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ, my tool for EVERYTHING (thanks Kristin Neff)! โฃ โฃ I learned about self-compassion over 5 years ago, & I am not talking about the definition here. I mean...I learned how to really embody this word & how to put it into practice. Self-compassion to me is self-kindness, mindfulness, & unconditional love for oneself. Throughout my life, I have been faced with some difficult situations & lessons (like all of us) & prior to this, my coping skills were basically: DENIAL & AVOIDANCE. Well, that only โ€˜servedโ€™ me for so long, until it really didnโ€™t (total wake up call btw). With the help of a coach, books, friends, & meditation I learned what itโ€™s really like to be there for yourself. To accept all of your feelings & emotions, & to know that everything you feel is VALID. I learned to hold space for what I was feeling, & instead of judging or blaming- I accepted, I embraced, & loved myself through it.โฃ โฃ We are all in this together, & thatโ€™s what makes it a little easier. โฃ โฃ ๐•ƒ๐•–๐•’๐•Ÿ ๐•š๐•Ÿ...๐•™๐• ๐•๐•• ๐•ค๐•ก๐•’๐•”๐•–, ๐•’๐•”๐•”๐•–๐•ก๐•ฅ ๐•จ๐•™๐•’๐•ฅ ๐•ช๐• ๐•ฆ ๐•’๐•ฃ๐•– ๐•—๐•–๐•–๐•๐•š๐•Ÿ๐•˜, ๐•–๐•ž๐•“๐•ฃ๐•’๐•”๐•– ๐•š๐•ฅ, ๐•’๐•Ÿ๐•• ๐• ๐•—๐•—๐•–๐•ฃ ๐•ช๐• ๐•ฆ๐•ฃ๐•ค๐•–๐•๐•— ๐•จ๐• ๐•ฃ๐••๐•ค ๐• ๐•— ๐•”๐• ๐•ž๐•ก๐•’๐•ค๐•ค๐•š๐• ๐•Ÿ ๐•’๐•Ÿ๐•• ๐•๐• ๐•ง๐•–.โฃ ๐•๐•†๐•Œ ๐”พ๐•†๐•‹ ๐•‹โ„๐•€๐•Š.โฃ

journey_to_wellness_. Some of the most common thoughts that clients tell me they experience

Some of the most common thoughts that clients tell me they experience when feeling anxious in social situations are along the lines of; "everyone is looking at me" and "they're judging me". Not all thoughts are true. And the truth is, most people are much more worried about themselves. We can't read minds, so we can't tell what others are thinking... but chances are, it isn't about us... it's more likely it's about their washing, or dinner that night.. OR maybe they are thinking and feeling exactly what you are, and are worried it's you who is looking at them! . . . #mentalhealth #journeytowellness #selfcompassion #selfempowerment #selfcare #socialanxiety #selfcareisntselfish #selflove #mindfulness #anxiety #affirmations #selfacceptance #depressionsupport #stressed #mindfulliving #mindfulpractice #innercritic #cartoon #illustrator #gratitude #mentalhealthawareness #cartoonart #drawing #copingskills #mentalhealthadvocate #counselling #illustration #wellbeing #mindful #psychology

What does choosing yourself look like? โ€ข Putting your own needs first. Supporting yourself, even when it means disappointing others. Recognizing what no longer serves you and shifting it. Owning your responsibility to care for yourself. Letting go of relationships, things, ideas, and ways of living that harm you. Allowing yourself to be different. Getting more comfortable with failure, rejection, and disapproval. Understanding your own opinions, thoughts, and ideas. Listening to your own wisdom. Making yourself a priority. Creating rituals and routines that nourish you. Practicing boundaries. Honoring your own voice. Learning to say no when you want to say no. Being okay with not pleasing everyone. Adding your perspective to the conversation. Doing what is right for you, even when itโ€™s also what is hard. Choosing to show up for yourself. Letting yourself take up space. Engaging in the real work of shifting your life. โ€ข Learning to choose yourself is hard, but not choosing yourself is harder. ๐ŸŒท

Oh hey, what is up with you? You know you can turn around a bad day just as quickly as it started. If a bad day's got you down, try one of these ways to turn it around. 1. Listen to favorite songs and sing along "loud" 2. Take a cold/hot shower and dance in the shower 3. Watch some funny YouTube videos or a comedy movie 4. Pet an animal 5. Give or get a hug 6. Practice deep breathing 7. Write about what's bothering you and then write something you are grateful for 8. Do some home exercise/yoga 9. Stop checking social media 10. Go for a walk Moreover bad days or low days are just like any other day, likewise, they will pass anyhow. All you can do is focus on something that can engage you and keep out of getting low. You don't need to solve everything right now. Things will be easier when you have full control. So wait, until you are back to sit on the driver seat. PS - The (11.) I take pictures or videos of myself. Because of #IAmOnIt and I want you also, so tell me #AreYouOnIt ??

BEGINNERS MIND The mindfulness attitude beginners mind. The richness of present-moment experience is the richness of life itself. Too often we let our thinking and our beliefs about what we โ€œknowโ€ prevent us from seeing things as they really are. To see the richness of the present moยญment, we need to cultivate what has been called โ€œbeginners mind,โ€ a mind that is willing to see everything as if for the first time.

There is often an internal dynamic that plays out. Our inner critic tends to focus its criticism on the parts of us that are vulnerable, often our inner child. Reestablishing a compassionate voice and speaking kindly to our inner child can be a game changer. For some of us that means setting internal boundaries with the critical aspects of ourselves. When you catch yourself being critical, pause. Say 'right now I'm being mean to myself.' Take a breath and add 'may I be kind to myself.' When we set limits for our critical aspects weโ€™re saying โ€˜I deserve to be spoken to with more respectโ€™. Weโ€™re demonstrating self-compassion. We are recognizing that thereโ€™s more to us than the narrow lens of the critical voice. Through this act of setting limits for our inner critic we offer space for other aspects to have a voice, like the inner nurturer or our inner child. When we hold a space of respect and compassion for the parts of us that experienced wounding we create a space that nurtures healing. #posttraumaticgrowth #innerchild #compassion #selfcompassion #resilientboundaries #boundaries #selfcare #innercrit

๐Ÿง  putting words to an emotion integrates the left (language mode) and right (emotional mode) hemispheres of the brain. This integration works to balance and regulate intense emotional experiences. โ€œName it to Tame itโ€ (term coined by interpersonal neurobiologist @drdansiegel) is a clever reminder to practice mindful labeling of your emotion. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #spilovepsychotherapy #edrecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisordertherapy #recovery #anxiety #depression #ptsd #yoga #mindfulness #brynmawr #mainline #westchester #philly #philadelphia #selflove #compassion #selfcompassion #feelings #selfacceptance #feelthefeelings #brain #label #dbt #nameittotameit #powerinwords #thursday

{JOURNAL} Putting our thoughts on paper helps us to see our mind from a different perspective. The stories constantly playing in our head need to be sorted out from time to time. โ€ข There is no right or wrong way to journal. I prefer putting pen to paper rather than typing, since a majority of us are on the computer most of the day. Typing can throw us into auto-pilot, where handwriting wakes up a different part of our brain. โ€ข If youโ€™re not sure where to start, journal prompts can be helpful. A journal prompt is a question or incomplete sentence that you finish to get you going. Here are a few journal prompt examples: - Today I feel __________ - Who am I? - What is my body and mind needing today? โ€ข Do you own a journal?๐Ÿ“’ Buying a journal is one of the first things I have clients get when we start therapy together.

๐ŸŽ‰ New Podcast โ€” Gayle Belanger: Self Compassion- A First Step to Emotional Healingโ€ ๐ŸŽ‰ Acknowledging your own pain and showing yourself compassion is the first step to emotional healing. In this unique episode, @gaylebelanger from @livefreeministry , a addiction and PTSD counselor for almost 30 years, actually leads us through an exercise to show compassion to ourselves (at 39:00). ๐Ÿ’• Gayle is not just any counselor, she's MY counselor ๐Ÿ’ and I wanted to share with you the tools she's been teaching me that have been bringing healing to my life and I think could do the same for you! In this episode we talk about standing in our true identity, how self compassion brings healing, silencing that inner critic, being rooted & grounded in Jesus and His word, and redeeming all the gifts inside you -- even the ones you don't like! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป It is my prayer that this episode will open up worlds of healing for you that you didn't even know existed and that it will help you begin to walk in who you truly are, not limited by your past wounds and the world that daily tries to bring us down! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ "If the soul is leading and your wounded, human self is in charge, then all of those toxic emotions are going into the body." "Donโ€™t hate yourself, donโ€™t hate any part of yourself, find ways to embrace all of the parts you donโ€™t like." . Swipe โฌ…๏ธ to see topics we touched on!
