That tapping thing

I think one of the most frustrating things about how we as a culture talk about stress is that we constantly emphasize how bad stress is for you, but offer very little in terms of actual effective and easy to use tools to use to reduce our stress and create happier, healthier lives.  

Enter: that tapping thing.  AKA EFT (emotional freedom technique) or tapping.

The Power of I: Intuition & Intention Setting

"Within every storm there is intention, strength, and beauty" 

Ever since I was a little girl countless people have referred to me as an old soul. Being an old soul is often associated with having experience, wisdom, or a deeper understanding of the world around you. Am I an old soul simply because of all I have experienced, and been witness to, in my mere 29 years? Furthermore, many believe old souls are individuals who have learned from past lives or even incarnations.

One of the biggest roadblocks to the management of our mental health is rooted in our innate fear of failure. So many of these self-help books by big name motivational speakers can often do more harm than good. Readers often end up feeling increased pressure to solve their issues in the inspired “go big or go home” mindset of some of these authors and become discouraged when they can’t adhere to these massive changes for an extended period of time.
