    My Self-Care Routine

    My Self-Care Routine

    As a recovering addict, it is super important to learn how to care for ourselves properly. After years of neglect, abuse and self-destructive behaviours, it is time that we show our bodies, minds and spirits some LOVE! It is important to be compassionate as we are recovering from addiction and to remember that no one is perfect and your self-care routine will not be. To be compassionate to ourselves, as we are healing, is one of the biggest forms of self-love we can have. Hope this finds you well.

    My Life with a Dysfunctional Bladder

    Two months after graduating from high school in the summer of 2016, something just didn’t feel right. I had just begun working my first full-time job and I had felt fluid come out of my lower regions. It wouldn’t stop, and it wouldn’t cease for several years. I’ve been chronically ill with a condition that affects my bladder for the past four years, and it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

    Learning to fly

    Learning to fly

    Heading towards Tower Bridge today in the rain, the light changed to amber just as I was reaching the approach to the span. I pulled my bike out in front of the traffic, waiting while a bus, a truck, passed in front of me on the Highway. I used to work near here – years ago now – so this neighbourhood always has a resonance for me, an echo of another life; but this morning I was thinking not about those vanished years but about the time, only four months ago, when waiting for the light here, being anywhere near here, made my heart pound with fear, with the certainty that I was bound to be knocked off my bike and flattened by a ton or two of moving metal. Four months ago I wasn’t a cyclist. Today, I am.

    Simple tips to increase cognitive skills

    As we age, cognitive function becomes a concern, because of the number of people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and various forms of dementia. Some older adults and even younger ones are troubled because they have a parent or other relative who succumbed to such mental decline. It's important to know when there is something serious going on, or you are dealing with stress and or normal signs of aging. You might also be dealing with side effects of medication. This is why it is always important to let your personal care physician know of the changes you re dealing with.

    DREAMS

    DREAMS

    DREAMS : What do they mean? What purpose do they really serve. Is a dream nothing more than our minds working over time as we sleep. Bringing us to another world far beyond the reality we live in. Do they serve as a warning of bad things to come, or of people who are wishing to harm us in some way. As far as dreams and go science not a lot is really understood about dreams. But one things is for sure we all dream. Some dreams are so crazy they don't make any since after we wake up from them. We have all had the type of dream where we wake up and wonder what the hell brought on that type of dream. For example why did I dream I turned into a flying purple dragon. This type of dream is not scary or bothersome just strange. You think about it for a few minutes and go back to sleep. Then there is a dream which we enjoy having . It is a dream about something fun or a wonderful event or place. Everybody understands what I mean because we have all had them. In this dream we actually wish we could stay and are sometimes disappointed because to keep having the dream, and enjoy are time there for just a little longer.

    Crystal Healing

    The crystal healing community has grown very popular in the past several years. Many people have subscribed to the healing properties of crystals, gemstones, and minerals. I have done some research and found that there is very little peer reviewed research on crystal healing (gemmotherapy). What little research that has been done attributes any healing qualities to the placebo effect. It is important to mention that this can be enhanced through priming. The general consensus is that crystal healing is a pseudoscience.

    Why wearing masks are important, how to properly wear them and how to protect yourself

    Why wearing masks are important, how to properly wear them and how to protect yourself

    WHO and CDC both say that Mask wearing in public is very important to help slow the spread of COVID-19. WHO says that the masks N95, FFP2, or equivalent are recommended for people caring for others from covid19. The CDC Recommends that children under the age of two and people who have respiratory issues do not wear masks. Wearing masks slow the spread of covid because it can travel in the air through water droplets and land in your mouth, nose, and eyes but the mask can protect you a bit more than without. But caregivers should also do healthy habits such as wash your hands often and do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands and frequently wash and disinfect surfaces.

    living in quarantine

    living in quarantine

    Having a pair of eyes and a mind of my own. Having a functioning & healthy body, 2 arms and 2 working legs that allow me to do oh so much. 🧚‍♂️💃 Being more than capable of creating the beautiful world I want for myself each day. Living is what keeps me moving. Everyday that I wake up is a blessing, as cliché as that sounds it's true. I tell my google mini to play Positive healing music on spotify, as it sets a beautiful tone for my morning, I then make my bed, wash my face, and write in my manifestations/visualizations/dream book. I write 3 things I am grateful for, it helps me remain humble and it reminds me of the gratefulness I have for even the littlest things. I then write down where I envision myself in the future. I write in present tense as if I am already there,(perhaps Ireland) I close my eyes, imagine and feel that I'm there... and it is so blissful. The law of attraction and manifestation is something I whole-heartedly believe in. Whenever I have crazy, intense or inspiring dreams I also write that down. Watching my family working hard & smart daily for their dreams is what inspires me. Maintaining a good relationship with my family whilst receiving their constant support has been so impactful, because after all, who you spend your time with most is who rubs off on you most. Getting to know myself better and becoming a better person each and every day, looking back and reflecting and journaling on past experiences and emotions has really gotten me to understand myself better. I've realized that the only person you should be comparing yourself to is the one you were yesterday, or even a year ago. Having so much time to myself during this quarantine has definitely had it's pros + cons (as most things).. I've found myself feeling more anxious than ever, feeling more lonely than ever, and in so much fear than ever with everything going on in the world amongst other personal things. Yet I decided to pull myself through and make the best out of what feels like long and dreary days. After all it's all about your mindset and outlook on life... it really is. 👁👄👁It's about the way you choose to interpret and react to life. I began all the projects and courses I never made time for, or never had time for. I found my true love❤️, my passion... which is music producing. And haven't felt this fulfilled like this in quite some time... the mini music studio I'm creating in my room is still in progress, and is about 75% done. I finished a photography course and bought a camera + gear, something I'd been wanting to do since I was about 8, and I began a videography course on Udemy, if you've never heard of it you should check it out, they have a variety of online courses for great pricing! I cleaned out my entire closet and just began planning designs for clothing of mine I'm going to flip and re sale on DePop and other sites such as poshmark, etsy, etc. I'm eventually going to create my own clothing business by simply reusing clothes I already have or thrifted and touching them up. I began to read more and watch more videos to further my education on various topics such as the environment, politics, physical + mental health, as well as products I've been using on my skin and hair!! (Everyone should definitely check out the Think Dirty APP) if you haven't already, for it has the list of ingredients in the beauty/skin care products you use or want to buy. It lists what harmful ingredients it may contain, etc. You would be very surprised in what you find that you're using on your own hair or skin. I began watching more documentaries and high rated movies, for there is usually some sort of teaching in most of them, and knowledge is power. 90% of the time after watching a good movie or documentary there is always a lesson gained from it, something valuable that you can apply to the way you live life or to the way you look at life. For example, I recently finished 13 Reasons Why and although it was probably the most depressing series I've ever watched, I truly learned so much from it. One of my favorite lessons taught from it was in Clay's graduation speech when he basically says that no matter how low or depressed you're feeling to just remember to "keep moving", and to "choose to live...cuz even on the worst days there are people who love you, and there's new music out there for you, things that will blow your mind" and that entire speech really hit me hard, because it's true. These are words that haven't left my mind since. We often get so caught up in how we are feeling in the moment we forget that there's so much out there for us, there are people in our lives who love us truly and would do anything for us. There are so many things in life we have not yet seen or experienced that are meant for us to discover, see, and feel...and there are so many people out there who are meant to be in our lives and are meant for us.

    Why And How I Moved My Workouts To My Living Room

    Why And How I Moved My Workouts To My Living Room

    First and foremost, to be clear and honest, I am not exactly the quintessential yoga type guy. I am not one to dismiss its benefits and have used some modified stretching in pre and post workouts that could be likened to yoga by those who have never actually taken a class, anyone actually familiar with yoga would call bullshit on my "poses" and form in a moment. However, in March of this year, I went from spending 5 days a week in the gym, workouts ranging from 30 minutes to over 2 hours each, to having the gym no longer an option to me. My gym was in my office and my office is still not open to this day (work from home is my reality at least until Corona virus cases are dropping nationally instead of rising).
