How to Reduce Financial Stress and Become a Healthier You

If you’re struggling with money problems, your mental and physical health might be struggling too.

Maybe you know what’s necessary to improve your financial circumstances but lack the means to get started, or maybe you’re unsure if there’s a path forward at all. Either way, constant worrying about your budget leads to significant stress that can affect the proper functioning of your mind and body.

To make wellness a priority, it’s important to address your financial concerns as well as the resulting impact on your health. To help you tackle the consequences of your financial strain, we’re here to explain the impact of money troubles and how you can get to a better place — in terms of both your health and your wallet.

Health Consequences of Financial Stress

Those with financial worries tend to experience a wide range of harmful effects on their health. Since money is always on your mind, you might deal with one or more of these mental health struggles:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Memory Loss

 

The impact of financial stress on your mental health also can affect your body. Here are some common consequences for your physical health:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Headaches
  • Sleep Problems
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Weight Gain
  • Medical Care Avoidance

Getting to a Better Place

Whether you’re undergoing financial stress, health problems, or a combination of both, it can feel overwhelming to work on getting better. However, we’ve broken down some ways you can combat all your struggles at once:

  • Meditation: Meditating can be a powerful healing tool for those dealing with mental health problems.
  • Positive Affirmations: Thinking positively is crucial for everyone, especially for those experiencing depression. Browse through these affirmations for messages to tell yourself.
  • Professional Help: For medical, financial, and mental health advice, seeking guidance from a professional can make a significant difference.
  • Balanced Diet: Eating well can help both the mind and body perform at their best.
  • Manifestation: To attract financial abundance, you might want to try manifesting your desires.
  • Consistent Sleep Patterns: Sleeping for at least six hours per night and going to bed at consistent times can help you feel better and accomplish more during the day.
  • Reflection: Devoting time to critical self-reflection might make it easier to identify issues with your habits or ways of thinking.
  • Motivation: Once you know your financial and health objectives, devising a clear plan and taking small steps to achieve it can help you stay motivated and reach your goals.

Reducing your financial stress can be challenging. Not only does it involve working on the money problems, but it also requires working on yourself. When you’re feeling the weight of financial worries keeping you down, just remember that you have the power to get back on track.

Once Upon a Time, In a Galaxy Far, Far Away

Well not Once Upon a Time, but Once Before Covid, and not in a Galaxy Far, Far Away, but in my own personal galaxy, I came up with an idea.  I had been working, kind of sort of, on a young adult novel, when I was struck by an idea.  I wanted to write a companion book to my book Thinking Positive: Take the Journey into Positivity.  Then covid struck and my life was turned upside down.  I foolishly thought, as a teacher who was now working from home, that I would have PLENTY of time to write.  I was wrong, so, so wrong.   I worked more hours than I could ever imagine recreating curriculum, and reaching out to kids trying to help, begging them to do work and just making sure they were okay.  Summer brought more of the same.  Things changed a little bit in the fall.  We were still remote, but it was more structured, and I found that I did have more time, but something had happened.  It was a not good something.  I started listening to the voices in my head.  You know those voices, the ones that tell you your too fat, or stupid, or ugly, or what you just said or did was foolish.  THOSE voices.  Gotta say, I’m not a fan of those guys.  Anyhow, those voices were telling me I was wasting my time, that nobody wanted to read anything I was writing, and that I couldn’t write.  Well, I’m actually not going to disagree with those statements.  But you know what?  I didn’t write my book for anybody else I wrote it for ME!  If people liked it, that was great, but I never once in a million years thought I  was going to sell a million copies.  But I started listening to the voices and they convinced me that I couldn’t do it.  That I couldn’t write.  Logically, I know that is not true.  I can write, I may not write well, but I can write, and I have 39 short stories, and novel length works to my pseudonym – and what’s more, people actually like them.

My new companion to my Thinking Positive book was going so well when I started.  I was literally flying through it – and then I got to the chapter on re-framing your thoughts, and I could not write that chapter.  At all.  It wasn’t writers block, it was worse.  It was that pesky voice in my head, it kept droning on, louder and louder, and it talked over any writing related thoughts I was having.  And it was ironic because I should have been re-framing those very loud thoughts and used it to my advantage.  And honestly, that realization just came to me this weekend, along with a few others which may be blog topics for another day.  My point in all this rambling is those negative voices in our heads only have power if we listen to them.  As hard as it is, and I KNOW it’s hard, you have to be louder than them.  When they start, tell them to stop.  Seriously, say stop in a loud firm voice, or clear, or let go.  I’m going to try and work on my book tomorrow, and when those voices start telling me  I can’t, I’m going to tell them I can, because I can, and so can you.

How to Make Your Wellness a Priority 

 

After a grueling year finding our way through the pandemic, things are slowly but surely returning to some sense of normalcy. But with all the stress that we experienced from COVID-19, you may have found it tough to keep up with your normal healthy habits and routines. If you feel like your wellness has taken a seat on the back burner, you aren’t alone—and it’s never too late to pick up where you left off!

 

If the thought of returning to your pre-pandemic habits and routines makes you want to crawl into bed and hide, don’t fret. With the help of the right tools and strategies, you can remove the overwhelm and ease your way back into the process.

Assess Your Wellbeing

Before you can make any concrete goals, it’s important to take some time to assess where you are now and what areas of life you’d most like to focus on. Maybe your sleep hygiene flew out the window, or you stopped taking your daily walks. Wherever you currently stand, what matters is you analyze what parts of your life matter most to you.

 

You might find that your list of goals is miles long and there’s a lot you want to tackle. While there’s nothing wrong with that, an important step to setting achievable goals is narrowing down your priorities to only the most important items, and leaving the rest for another time. If you try to go after too much at once, you could end up stretched beyond capacity and ultimately burn out quickly. To avoid this, try honing in on just three to five goals that are the most important to your wellbeing.

Be Kind to Yourself

Getting back to our goals after taking a long break can be challenging, and this is especially true when it comes to returning to our pre-pandemic lives after so much disruption. A critical part of the process is to remember to give yourself grace and kindness along the way. It can be easy to feel frustrated or discouraged if we aren’t exactly where we want to be. You might feel shame, frustration, or fear of whether or not you can measure up. That’s natural! That said, you don’t want to let these feelings debilitate you from getting back on track.

 

To combat this, make it a point to speak lovingly to yourself at all times, and to remember that so much of your ability and confidence to achieve your goals is a direct result of how you think about yourself and support yourself along the way. Avoid falling into the trap of speaking negatively to yourself or doubting capability, and instead try to be your own biggest cheerleader. It might feel tough at first, but the more you practice, the more natural it will become!

Track Your Progress

It can be tough to reach our goals if we don’t track them in some way. One tracking method called visualization can do wonders for your motivation and commitment to the process. When you visually track your goals, you’re able to apply structure and clarity to your efforts. This helps you stay on track, see how far you’ve come, and give you a source of encouragement when you’re feeling down.

 

While the thought of getting back to your own health and wellness after a long period of time can feel overwhelming, it doesn’t have to be. If you remember to give yourself grace and keep in mind the fact that you deserve to feel your best, you will be better equipped to show up for yourself day in and day out. And to help you get started with visual goal tracking, these printable habit trackers are the perfect way to get going with your goals.

 

Remember, it’s never too late to make yourself a priority!

44 Positive Affirmations for Depression to Inspire Change

MS Broudy, Ph.D
November 12, 2020

Have you ever given yourself a pep talk? You may not have realized it, but you were practicing a form of positive affirmation. Coping with depression can be discouraging and debilitating. Vocalizing certain phrases about yourself can provide a much-needed lift and motivate you toward positive change. Affirmations are a simple and useful tool that can help with depressive symptoms.

Reciting positive affirmations for depression

What Is a Positive Affirmation?

A positive affirmation is a self-statement that emphasizes your strengths, values, and favorable qualities. According to cognitive theory, depression is caused by distorted negative beliefs. Positive affirmations can be used to counter negative perceptions and bolster confidence in your abilities. For instance, you can replace the thought, “Nobody will ever love me” with the affirmation “I am worthy of love.” Many people who use affirmations recommend standing in front of a mirror as they repeat specific phrases to themselves, but you can perform them anywhere you feel is comfortable and effective. For increased success, it is suggested you practice your affirmations at least twice daily.

Do Affirmations Work?

Positive affirmations have been associated with multiple factors related to the reduction of depressive symptoms. Self-affirmation has been shown to activate parts of the brain that are associated with positive self-valuation. There is also evidence that suggests that affirmation increases the neural pathways related to a person’s reward centers, which undeniably boosts your mood. Further, an affirmation can serve as a protector against stressful situations that threaten your well-being. It can also help motivate people toward healthy behavior, such as eating fruits and vegetables. Maybe most importantly, the use of affirmation has been directly linked to feelings of optimism and happiness.

Keep in mind, however, the effectiveness of positive affirmations depends on their content. You need to be able to believe in what you are saying for them to be helpful. If you tell yourself something you know is not true or is unlikely to occur, it probably won’t help.

For example, if you keep saying to yourself that you look like a supermodel or are as musically talented as Adele, you are less likely to be able to convince yourself. In addition, the above research concludes that personally relevant affirmations appear more effective. Therefore, the more specific the affirmation is to your life, the better. Finally, affirmations that focus on the future seem to be most powerful. As a result, emphasizing behavior or outcomes that you can work toward will make them more productive. It may be useful to think of an affirmation as an active roadmap for positive thoughts and behavior.

Affirmations for Coping with Depression

There are literally millions of possible affirmations. Here are 44 you can use that are specifically geared for dealing with depressive symptoms:

While the above affirmations are suitable for numerous situations, one of the strengths of using affirmation is that it can be tailored to fit any area in which you are struggling. For example, if you are lacking confidence in whether you will do well on a work presentation you could affirm “I am prepared for today’s presentation and I will be successful.” Again, the more specific an affirmation is to your particular situation, the more it will resonate with you and produce positive results. Fortunately, affirmations can be made as distinct as necessary and easily changed to fit a particular circumstance.

Positive Affirmation as Part of a Depression Busting Package

Practicing affirmations daily is a useful tool in the fight against depression. It can improve self-image, reduce stress, increase healthy behavior, and boost mood. It is especially effective if the affirmations are personally relevant, realistic, and future-oriented. In addition, creating and performing an affirmation is a relatively simple process that only takes a few minutes.

It should be noted, however, that affirmations are not suitable as a lone treatment for depression. Clinical depression is a serious psychological disorder that often requires professional intervention. Affirmation is most effectively used as part of a treatment protocol that may also include psychotherapy, online counseling, medication, and positive lifestyle changes. While some steps for dealing with depression can be initiated independently, such as reciting positive affirmations, the most significant improvements typically result from working with a trained professionals.

Being Positive in 2020

If there was ever a year that was the antithesis of thinking positive, it would be 2020.  Dealing with covid-19 is hard.  People are dying from this, and that’s tragic.  You would think during this horrible time, we’d all come together and support one another, but that isn’t happening, and for me, that is why this year is all about negativity.

I spend a lot of time on Facebook, probably too much time if we’re being totally honest, and what I see posted there breaks my heart.  Here in the states, I’ve seen an election tear a country apart.  Prior to that, I saw a president that did not reflect any of the values I believe in.  I’ve seen people belittle one another over their political choices.  I’ve seen friendships end, and I’ve even seen families torn apart.

I’ve seen people belittle one another over the wearing of masks, and amazingly, I’ve seen people complain that some groups of people are working from home.  On a personal front, I’ve seen parents saying the most horrible things about teachers, blaming the fact that schools are closed on teachers.  News flash…teachers don’t have that power.

I feel bruised and battered and beaten down on a daily basis, and I know I’m not alone.  So many of us are feeling this way.  People losing jobs left and right and there isn’t enough money to survive, let alone celebrate the upcoming holiday.

It is this time, more than any other we need to dig down and find that scrap of positivity and focus on it.  Think positive thoughts, spread some joy.  When you encounter a hateful post, or worse, a hateful person, walk away.  Don’t bring negativity like that into your life.  Do what you have to do to pull yourself out of the pool of negativity that has been 2020.  You can make a difference and spread some positivity in this world  – everyone can.

Smile more, lend a helping hand when you can, and remember this has been a horrible year for pretty much everyone, but if we pull together, we can make it a little bit better.

Get organized

Clutter promotes anxiety, and a cluttered home can even make it harder to sleep at night. Our minds connect cleanliness with health, so tidying up can boost your spirits and reduce stress.

 

Here’s some tips for getting organized:

  • Before you leave the house each morning, take a few minutes to put things away so  clutter doesn’t pile up.
  • Utilize storage baskets to organize items that don’t already have a home.
  • Install hooks to double the storage in your home. Closets and cabinets are great places to take advantage of hanging space.

Choose a scent

Smells trigger memories and emotions more than any other sense. Find one or a few signature scents that bring you joy and calm and use this scent throughout your home.

 

  • Decorate your living space with scented candles. Light floral and vanilla scents are popular mood enhancers, and lavender scents can help with sleep.
  • If you’re not comfortable with candles in the bedroom, use scented plug-ins in this area of the home.
  • Your bathroom should also be full of delicious scents such as soaps and bath bombs. Carefully curate your guest bath with delicious scents that your guests can enjoy as well.
  • Purchase aromatherapy kitchen soap to turn dish washing from a chore into a relaxing habit.

Take advantage of natural light

We spend 90% of our time indoors, and it’s impacting our Vitamin D levels. Experts recommend we need at least 10 to 30 minutes of sunlight a day. Arrange your space in such a way that you can get this dose of Vitamin D indoors.

 

  • Large mirrors will reflect light so hang or display them in a dark-lit area of the home to boost brightness.
  • Open up your curtains and blinds during the day to let the light flow in, and then close at night for privacy.
  • Boost productivity with daylight-tinted bulbs in areas of the home where you want to feel particularly energized, such as a home office or garage.

Set up outdoor social spaces

Hanging outdoors has always been good for your health, but with COVID-19 it’s now recommended by the CDC as the safest way to have social interactions. Find creative ways to set your outdoor space up for entertaining.

 

  • Consider investing in an outdoor grill so you can host barbecues.
  • Set up outdoor furniture that faces each other so guests can commune.
  • A furry friend will keep you company and greet your guests.

Revitalizing your living space can promote joy and happiness. It doesn’t have to break the bank, either. There are plenty of budget-friendly and science-backed ways to bring positivity into your home. Check out this visual from The Zebra below for more ideas.

How Negative Thoughts and Emotions Affect Our Skin (+ 6 Tips To Change That)

Image source

 

All processes in our body are controlled by the nervous system. At the same time, the strongest bonds connect it with the skin, since they are the real embryological twins. Let us explain what this means. During the development of the embryo, the spinal cord and brain, peripheral nerves and epidermis are created from one material — the ectoderm, the outer germ layer of the embryo. And then these systems exchange a never-ending stream of messages for your whole life.

 

The relationship between the state of mind and skin

 

In dermatology, there is a section of psycho dermatology — a discipline at the junction with psychology. It studies the connection between skin conditions and our emotional background. And this is not surprising: the condition of the skin directly depends on the psyche.

 

The effects of stress

 

It is known, for example, that stress can worsen the course of such skin diseases like  dermatitis, psoriasis, etc. And, conversely, skin diseases, during which acne, irritation, dryness are observed, can cause severe stress. In addition, stress negatively affects healthy skin.

 

Some scientific works have proved that on the background of stress, the permeability of the skin barrier is disturbed, i.e. the main functions of the skin — barrier and protective — deteriorate.

Glucocorticoids, produced under stress, reduce the rate of lipid formation, depleting the hydrolipid mantle.

There is evidence that stress can also cause pigmentation disorders.

 

The complexion changes

 

Bad news, a quarrel, an unjust reproach, fatigue — and then the fresh, radiant face suddenly became grey and dull. All these, as well as insomnia, are stress factors, during which the release of the hormones catecholamines occurs. Peripheral vessels and skin capillaries are narrowed, blood and nutrient supply is reduced, so the skin turns pale and you get dark circles under the eyes.

 

Puffiness

 

Another vivid example of stress is a violation of the outflow of fluid, manifested by a slight swelling of the subcutaneous fatty tissue. And now there is swelling and pastiness, which, by the way, may not appear immediately, but after some time.

 

Reduced skin firmness

 

Many people note that against the background of stress, the skin loses its tone and elasticity. The face seems to be ageing, the skin looks flabby and lifeless. Violation of micro circulation inevitably affects its elasticity. But the decrease in tone is also associated with a general change in the tone of the muscles of the face and fibres of the connective tissue — they lose their readiness to contract.

 

Acne

 

Stress hormones trigger acne, and the appearance of imperfections on the face makes you nervous and aggravates the problem.

 

Increased skin sensitivity

 

The reverse side of stress is the development of dryness and hypersensitivity of the skin because of the fatigue and nervous shocks. This is due to an increased level of cortisol, which entails a disruption in lipid synthesis in the epidermis.

 

Symptoms of sensitive skin such as itching and tightness may become more pronounced with stress. But as soon as the situation returns to normal and there are no reasons for negative feelings, these phenomena will completely disappear.

 

How to improve your skin? Here are a few advices:

 

  1. If you are wondering how to improve your skin, restore its elasticity and radiance, then the first thing to do is to revise your diet. Those whose menu is based on fast food, fatty and heavy foods should change their habits right now. If your diet is balanced, has a lot of greens, fibre and other natural products, then you can periodically arrange cheating days for yourself. Just don’t turn them into cheating weeks or months.

 

  1. Take vitamin complexes, especially in winter and spring. It is very important that the body does not have a deficiency of vitamins A, B, C, as well as other essential substances;

 

  1. Don’t neglect proper skincare. Carry out an audit on the shelf, throw away all expired funds, as well as those that are not suitable for your skin type;

 

  1. It would be nice to fall in love with sports. Active movement improves the supply of oxygen to the body, so choose an activity that you like and go ahead. If you don’t want to go to the gym, walking in the evenings or yoga are a great choice too.

 

  1. Drink the right drinks. If you do not know how to improve your skin condition, train yourself to drink a healthy liquid. Eliminate strong drinks, soda, dairy drinks and alcohol from the diet. You can safely drink green tea, it is rich in iodine and has a lot of benefits and not only for your skin.

 

  1. Don’t forget that if you have a serious skin condition, such as dermatitis or psoriasis, none of the advice above will make them disappear, you should always seek professional help. Green Square Dermatology can help you with your treatment, education and ongoing prevention of serious conditions.

 

Conclusion

 

A look may not be the most important thing in the word, but your health certainly is. Don’t treat your organism and skin like they are not a part of you. You can always try your best to avoid all the negative situations and emotions and with following the tips we gave you, you will always look gorgeous, fresh and healthy!

How To Embrace the New Normal Based on Your Myers-Briggs Personality

 

With everything going on in the world recently, it can be difficult to remain positive. The pandemic has impacted all of our lives in a way we couldn’t have imagined when ringing in the new decade. All the plans you made, whether that be traveling, hitting the gym every day or spending less time binge watching TV were affected by this worldwide crisis. So while nothing seems to be certain these days, we know for sure that everyone is affected. In fact, a recent poll showed that 72% of Americans felt their lives have been disrupted to at least some degree.

 

The internet is full of great resources and tips to stay active and remain positive while working from home and sheltering in place but what works for your favorite blogger or YouTuber may not necessarily work for you! That’s why FTD created a helpful visual that illustrates how each personality type according to Myers-Briggs deals with uncertainty.

 

The MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) was developed by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers, and consists of eight traits:

 

  • Extraversion (E) vs. Introversion (I)
  • Sensing (S) vs. Intuition (N)
  • Thinking (T) vs. Feeling (F)
  • Judging (J) vs. Perceiving (P)

 

The test asks simple questions about your personality to see how you score on each of these four scales. Your personality type is then defined by the traits you scored higher on and is made up by four letters (f.ex. ENFP). There are a total of 16 different personality types that can further be combined into four groups that share specific traits: Analysts, Diplomats, Sentinels and Explorers.

 

You can take the free MBTI test here, it only takes about 12 minutes and can give you a deeper understanding of your personality. When you have the results of your test, come back and check out how you can embrace the “new normal” so you can feel more confident making it through this year.

 

Embrace The New Normal

Social Distancing Does NOT Mean Social Isolation

Hi Everyone,

This has been a trying time for everybody.  We are social distancing and for some, it’s turning into social isolation.  It’s a lesson we all need to learn.  social distancing does not mean social isolation.  But as I said, this is a very trying time, and we are all trying to navigate the uncharted waters of Covid-19.

As I have mentioned before, I’m a teacher, and with schools closed, we’ve shifted to an online model and it hasn’t been easy.  I literally find myself working and interacting with kids all hours of the day – and night.  Yes, I get text messages and emails whenever the kids decide to work.  I’ve received messages as late (or as early depending on your perspective) as 2:42 in the morning!  Working from home is a time management and time balancing act I am ill-prepared to manage.  It’s killing me because if ever there was a time for thinking positive, it’s now!

There are four people in my house, so I am not socially isolated, but in a way I am.  Looking at the same faces day in and day out can be a struggle, I am learning, and no amount of positive thinking can take away the irritation that can build when you are in that situation.  I think the best option any of us have right now is to go outside and get moving.  Go for a short walk, even if it’s to the end of your driveway.  If you can manage to set it up, go work out on your back deck for a while.  Go for a walk in the rain (that’s my plan today).  Wave to your neighbors from your porch.  Skype or Facetime your friends and family.

Social distancing does not mean social isolation – we are not in solitary confinement, and seeing a new/different face, even if it is from six feet apart, can make a huge difference. I went up to one of our local trails to walk and I saw my hair stylist in the parking lot!  It was so nice to see someone that wasn’t a family member and talk to somebody that wasn’t affiliated with work  By the way, can I tell you how much I hate zoom meetings!!!!  And this weekend, my kids karate instructors brought their family up to wave to my kids from the car.  Little things like that make all the difference in the world.

If you’re struggling seeing the same faces and the same four walls, you have the power to do something about that. Social distancing does not mean social isolation.  Go for a drive, pull up to a friend’s house and wave.  Go for a walk around your neighborhood and wave and say hi to your neighbors.  Check on your elderly neighbors and those you know have underlying health conditions.  Reach out to them and make sure they’re okay and see if they need anything.

This is a trying time for all of us but as they keep reminding us, we’re all in this together, and together we’ll get through it, and I think we’re going to come out stronger on the other side.

Positive Practices for a Productive Commute 

Positive Practices for a Productive Commute

With rush hour traffic, projects waiting for us at our desks and an overall busy homelife, we rarely think of our mornings as relaxing. To make things worse, we often get to work only to have to deal with awful mental blocks or that nagging feeling that we’re wasting time on menial tasks –– you know, those times where you feel like you’ve done so much yet accomplished nothing? Well, a hectic and stressful morning routine can be the culprit to this unhealthy cycle.

 

According to a recent survey by Car Rentals on morning commute practices, a busy and stressful commute can hinder our focus and productivity at work. The survey found that nearly 40% of people ages 18-24 think about work on their way to and from work. This inability to disconnect can not only lead to mental blocks and added stress, but can also cause us to feel burnt out.

 

If your morning commutes are often jammed packed and hectic, perhaps incorporating a few new healthy morning practices can help you better organize, compartmentalize and decompress before getting to work and back home. Below are some simple practices you can implement aimed to reset your mind, help boost your productivity at work and hopefully encourage you to improve your work-life balance.
