A Balanced Outlook on Life

Many circumstances in life are beyond our control. Experts claim that our stresses most often have to do with how we interact with ourselves, our world, and others. Many people even take medications to help them cope with problematic situations. Luckily there is a drug free and effective treatment. It is called cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). CBT explores and addresses what lies beneath the surface and equips you with skills to take control of what you have control over – your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Being in control helps you manage life’s challenging situations in ways that are realistic, balanced and healthy for mind and body.

Daily Routine Important for Seniors

People are afraid of the unknown. If an older adult is losing control over their physical abilities, independence, or cognitive abilities, their world gets filled with more and more unknowns. Establishing routine is extremely important for seniors. A daily routine offers a level of stability that individuals often enjoy, as it allows them to settle into a schedule they understand. Doing the same basic activities like eating, dressing, and bathing at the same time every day is known to improve sleep quality. A predictable routine also helps to reduce stress and anxiety.

Our Bodies Hold Our Stories

When there is something you are not allowing yourself to feel, admit or acknowledge and we stuff the unexpressed feeling down, it becomes an energy form that stresses the body. It starts when an uncomfortable emotion doesn’t want to be felt or experienced. We ignore and bury our intolerable feelings to forget about them. This energy tenses muscles, lessens blood flow and eventually becomes illness, pain, or dis-ease. The hidden process of stuffing our emotions is called “somaticizing”. When your body is asked to hold an emotional state for too long, it begins manifesting into physical symptoms or creates an addiction to keep it at bay.

How’s Your Sleep Posture?

You spend nearly 1/3 of our lifetime sleeping, making your sleep posture extremely important to your daily wellbeing. Ideally, your head should remain in a neutral position. When side sleeping, if the pillow is too thick or thin, the neck becomes side flexed with one side being compressed while the other side is stretched; this can lead to compressed nerves. “Head forward posture” which is a jutting forward of the chin, is becoming more prominent with increased cell phone usage. Add to that a back sleeper with more than one pillow, the neck muscles are in a constant state of contraction trying to return to their normal length. Being pro-active could save you from a real “pain in the neck” later.
