The word "hormone" itself comes from the Greek root, meaning "to induce", not without reason is the notion that these substances act in the same way on the body as the gas pedal - on the car engine. Meanwhile, hormones can affect the functions of the body, or they can simply reflect them.

Spirituality & medication is such a divisive topic nowadays, even though it needn’t be.

I want to share some things that I have been doing to keep my mental health up while going through a horrible job transition in hopes that someone will find them just as helpful and begin to feel like their best self again!
Did you know that your breathing affects your feelings?
Most everyone has probably heard someone say that when you are angry count to 10 before you react. Certain exercises are done in sets of 10 repetitions and both the Bible and numerology indicate that 10 is a number of completion. Antibiotics are often given in a 10 day supply and things are often judged on a scale of one to 10. This number can also be beneficial when trying to prevent your body from responding to stress.

There was a time when I got trapped in quite an unhealthy pattern of wanting to control life as much as I could.
