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’?
It's clear that the more we spend time with difference: different looking, different shape and size, foreigners, differently sexually oriented people and other minorities, the easier it will for us, we get used to it. The parents have a opportunity, with their own attitude, to impact their offspring and how they will in turn perceive other people.

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.

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.

Gratitude relieves depression

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

That's one reason why I like methods like PSYCH-K®. However this excercise felt doable so let's get moving!

Are you still afraid of the virus?

New fears
Monella kuitenkin pelko ahdistaa mielessä ja sydämessä eikä tunnu laantuvan, vaikka Korona on maassamme jyllännyt jo yli kuukauden – niinkuin kausi-influenssat yleensäkin tekevät. Syitä on monia: esim. kun ei tiedä montaakaan asiaa:

how long time will this last?
what if I catch it?
what if my nearest ones catch it?
how to survive if the quarantine lasts for weeks?
Where will I get money because I can't work?
how long time will I have to stay alone?

Mihin keskityt, pelkoon vai toivoon?

tuo valoa sinne missä sitä ei ole

Bruce Liptonin artikkelin innoittamana muistutan kaikkia siitä, että me voimme vaikuttaa omaan elämäämme enemmän kuin tuntuu olevan tiedossa. Paniikki, joka on vallannut maailman, on todella tappava. Sen sijaan, että kerrottaisi ihmisille heidän omista mahdollisuuksistaan, lietsotaan pelkoa ja uhkakuvia? Brucen mukaan jos olet joskus sairastanut flunssan, tai ollut vilustunut, olet todennäköisesti sairastanut Coronaviruksen. Kyseinen virus ei…
