Video Time: 3 Ways Mindfulness Exercises Help You Relax and Keep You in the Present

Hey everyone, I hope your enjoying the summer season. For this Video Time post, I thought we focus on the topic of Mindfulness. These videos will explain what mindfulness is and the techniques that make it up.

These videos will discuss how to lower your stress levels, slow down your thoughts, and focus on your 5 senses. One video will break down the process of how a thought can quickly consume us and result in a negative feeling. We can have negative thoughts in which we can acknowledge and leave it at that. Whether or not we act on them is up to us.

Any thought can come into our mind and change how we behave and what we say vert fast. Remember different parts of our body can be affected by this process as well.

Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.

Video Time: Self Affirmations

So when things are getting you down or you feel like your a magnet for bad things in your life, you can feel like your not deserving of anything good. One thing I started doing was saying 10 things that I am grateful for every morning and every night. That has really helped me start to feel better and better deal with troubles in my life.

Positive self affirmations are also helpful as well. In these 3 videos, you’ll hear more about how positive and negative self informations can help you and also hold you back and hurt you. You will hear how they can affect you in your conscious and your unconscious. You may not notice much at first as this will take some time to get into a rhythm, but if you start repeating them on a daily basis, eventually you will start to feel better about yourself, attract better things, and your confidence will build-up.

Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.

Video Time: Toxic Productivity

Hey guys, this topic has been on my mind for some time. I wasn’t sure how to approach it until now. Below is a link to 2 videos that talk about how doing too much and working a lot isn’t the best for your mental health.

The first video is from psychologist Dr. Julie Smith. Though her video talks about toxic productivity during Covid lockdown, the information is still relevant today. The second video is from Clement Mihailescu the CEO and Co-founder of AlgoExpert. He talks about his own experience with toxic productivity and what has helped him find balance with work and self-care.

Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.

Video Time: The Importance of Mental Health

Hi everyone. I want to change the content a bit. This post has 3 videos describing the importance of mental health. Mental health isn’t visible yet it affects our spiritual, emotional, and physical health. Mental health isn’t something to make fun of or dismiss. We are all fighting battles we don’t tell everyone even our closest friends and family members.

Stress isn’t a 100% bad thing. We need a bit of stress to alarm us to recognize unwanted stress. Trying to not let stress become too much for us to handle is one of life’s greatest challenges.

Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.

Video Time: Establishing and Maintaining Boundaries

I hope everyone had a nice Easter and you all were able to relax and recharge yourselves. I have listed links to 3 videos on setting mental health boundaries.

The first video is from Kati Morton a licensed therapist. She explains 5 tips on creating and maintaining boundaries among friendships and loved ones.

The second video is from Dr. Holly Daniels who talks about boundaries, codependency, relationships, and more.

The last video comes from Haesue Jo another licensed therapist. She talks about what it means to set boundaries for your own health and safety as well as taking care of your well being.

Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.

Video Time: Mental Exhaustion

So I’m back after a week of resting. Work is still pretty busy for me. I hope you guys are taking care of yourselves.

This post is a compilation of videos about mental exhaustion. I’ve talked about recharging your batteries and refilling your cup. With the pandemic, our mental and emotional health has taken a hit; some more than others.

The first video talks about 6 signs of mental and emotional exhaustion. The second video talks about 5 types of tiredness. The third video is about mental fatigue and how we can improve it. These videos spoke to me. I hope you all can take away something from them.

Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.

Video Time: Judgement

Here’s 3 videos about judgment. We inadvertently judge other people about various things. Ironically, when we judge other people, it actually reflects who we are as a person. These videos talk more about that, where does judging other people originate from, and why we shouldn’t judge others.

Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth.

Video Time: Create a Happy and Healthy Work Environment

Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2021 is going well for you all. If you made some goals and resolutions for this year, I hope they’re going well.

So this post contains three videos of how to create a healthy and happier work environment. For those who have a job, the work environment can be tough, challenging, and toxic at times. However, there are things you can do to make things better for yourself even for those in management. Those of you who don’t work, this may not be for you, but it can give you a bit of an insight into what goes on in the work environment.

These videos go into detail about things you can do to your own personal work area to better your mood, how communication and team building exercises improve morale, how having a happier mood can spark more of your creative outlets, and more.

Below is a pic of more ways that elaborate what’s in the videos.

Here’s to a new year. I hope it’s better for you all. Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.

Video Time: Listen, Show Sympathy, Don’t Give Advice

Hey guys, I hope you all are doing well. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I did; it was a mellow one though, but still nice.

It’s been a while since I did one of these kind of posts. During my social media hiatus, one of the things I worked on was how to be a better listener in terms of how to show sympathy and empathize with people rather than just giving out advice and immediately solving their problems. I found that people feel better when they have someone who will hear them out. This can consist of a rant, a vent, an explanation, or a simple conversation.

Emphasizing with someone’s problems can be a better solution than solving the problems themselves. This helps people realize that they aren’t alone with certain problems, issues, and struggles and it helps them see that there are people out there who care about other people more clearly.

Here are three videos that discuss how to be a better listener, why offering advice all the time to every problem isn’t always helpful, and a way to restate what someone has said to you to show that you really heard them and eliminate the ‘I’m right and your wrong’ concept.

I hope these videos have been helpful. A lack of communication can result from people not fully listening to each other. This can spark problems, unnecessary arguments, and unwanted stress. Showing more empathy and sympathy toward people can make a world of difference than just solving their issue. Take care of yourselves, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.

Video Time: You Are Enough, Really You Are

So this week, I decided to put together a list of videos that revolve around another topic. I’ve done this before and I want to keep doing this every now and then alongside video discussions and regular blog posts.

This kind of post will consist of a few short videos with a little discussion whereas the video discussion posts will be one video that may be longer and will have a more in depth discussion.

So these videos are about being enough as you are. The voices of anxiety, social media, teachers, the people in our lives, and/or lies the world may tell us that we need to be something were not. We can’t be happy and satisfied unless we have or meet certain conditions like being the best student in class, getting married, having kids, owning a house, having the newest phone, iPad, car, etc.

We put ourselves down and believe in the lies which can hurt our morale and decrease our motivation to do anything. We wind up letting people push us around and tell us how we should be which may not be right for us and benefits the other people.

Now I’m not saying we shouldn’t strive to be better, but find a way to be happy and content with where we are at right now instead of waiting for the end result. If we are currently rewiring our thoughts, not believing the lies about ourselves, changing how we see the world, working towards a goal, we can find peace of mind knowing that we’re doing the best we can with what we got right now.

Remember your not alone in the world and you have worth. Enjoy the videos.
