Making It Through Mental Illness
Breathe. Whether you identify yourself or are considered by others to be an Indigo Child, Lightworker, and/or know that you are in fact an HSP/Empath, than you are simply here to collaborate on the greatest common purpose with so many: bridging the gap between worlds, connecting the spiritual and material.

Find Your Own Kind of Exercise
You hear it all the time, exercise is good for you. You hear it more often if you have depression. They tell you to exercise because it helps fight depression and improve your mood.
