With the world is full of information, what to believe in?

Apua, en halua nähdä!

It may be difficult to give up all the restrictions for some, although being harmful and/ annoying (like the masks which were mostly causing headache).

If weve been fed little by little all sorts of fears about corona, we have composed different pictures and perceptions - and fears about it.

One is afraid of the virus itself, the other about getting ill/death in general, one about being sent to the hospital, some about the vaccines, about transmitting the disease to others and some about being left alone once all signicant others dying of it...all these are dependant of our own experiences in life.

Accepting difference

Vaikka näytämme erilaisilta, meissä on enemmän samaa kuin eroja.

Kun on kyse sinusta, olemuksestasi ja persoonastasi, on kyse elämästäsi. Tulee tunne, että olet jollain tapaa syntynyt ’vääränlaiseksi’?
On selvää, että mitä enemmän olemme tekemisissä erilaisuuden kanssa: erinäköisten, erikokoisten, erimaalaisten ja myös eri seksuaalisuuntautumisten kanssa, muut vähemmistöt mukaan lukien, sen nopeammin totumme erilaisuuteen. Vanhemmat voivat omalla suhtautumisellaan vaikuttaa valtavasti lastensa hyväksymiskapasiteettiin sitten myöhemmin elämässään. Esimerkin voima on valtava!

Lovely stress, it's leaving me...

Stress is an interesting thing, isn't it? It's been discussed a lot - as I do too - and blamed for many, if not all problems, and it's been studied a lot. One thing that I haven't seen yet, it's to be glad it exists.

Now I must say that I'm truly grateful that I have been stressed a lot for years - more or less.

It's enough to be happy

vanha nainen hymyilee leveästi

Yksinkertaistettuna kuitenkin sanotaan, että jos haluat voittaa sairauksia, kannattaa olla onnellinen, se on sama asia molekyylitasolla.” Onnen viesti on parantava viesti.

Nyt on siis viimeistään aika piristää omia läheisiään niillä asioilla, joista hän nauttii. Musiikki on tunnetusti hyvä siinä, laulaminen, liikkuminen omien rajoitteiden mukaan (tietysti), tarinoiden kertominen tai mikä vain, minkä tiedät piristävän läheisiäsi!

The many faces of stress

stressi vie vaihtoehdot pois

Under stress we are capable of making decisions quickly, we are ready to either fight or flight and to defend ourselves against an enemy!

We don't have access to all the areas of the brain at that moment so the decisions are not based on rational thinking but instead most likely hasty conclusions.

So any long term planning or decisions aren't recommended when under acute - or long term - stress. Their time comes later on.

Gratitude relieves depression

What can you do when you're anxious and cannot actually think positively, not to mention be grateful?

This excercise is easy to do. You can do it anywhere - and what's best - you don't need to fool yourself to think positively! Personally I never liked those excercises because I've felt that I would be deceiving myself by denying any negative things to exist in my life. And they do. That's one reason why I like methods like PSYCH-K®. However this excercise felt doable so let's get moving!
