As Michael Merzenich, PhD, a neuroscientist at the University of California San Francisco, explained in an interview with the Santa Cruz Sentinel, "when [the ocean is] landmark-free, it's naturally calming to us, much like closing your eyes is calming.” #anxietyrelief #ecotherapy #wellbeing #wellness #mentalhealth #mentalfitness #calmingvideos #calming #ocean #mantaray

A study conducted by University of Essex researchers found that taking a walk in nature reduced depression in 71% of its participants, compared to only 45% in participants in the control group (who took a walk in a shopping center)! Ironically, 22% of the control group participants actually reported an INCREASE in depression 🤔 Maybe retail therapy ISN’T so helpful after all! =====================================

I work with someone who wants to walk and talk at Moose Point, just about every session, for her coping skill building and support.. Yes.

Even if returning service members do not have a physical or mental health injury, many families or veterans may still struggle with coming back to a routine which is very different from war. HOW provides expense free excursions to these veterans and their families that can help the process. 
Heroes on the Water is one of the few veterans’ charities that includes family members in our programs.

So, this is obviously not a music account, but I can't help but sharing yet another #song by @xavierruddofficial ☻ Still resonating, still true in 2018...
▪
I sit here now, 2010
The government's still stealing land, making lame excuses for their greed
While that oil spills into the sea
And the whalers now still killing #whales
And old growth bush still being raped; And I know we all have busy lives; But sing along if you have the time

Bow down to your God
But don't forget about the #earth
Place your hand on a #tree
Who's helping you #breathe
Give #thanks to the #sun
When you #open your lungs
Throw your buts in the bin
Help the old #turtles swim

Selling tourism on sacred land
While the local mob sit on their hands; If what I'm speaking here makes any sense
Open up, my friend, and jump the fence

Freedom for all
Freedom for all
Freedom for all
Freedom for all

Lines Written in the Days of Growing Darkness

Every year we have been
witness to it: how the
world descends
into a rich mash, in order that
it may resume.
And therefore
who would cry out

to the petals on the ground
to stay,
knowing, as we must,
how the vivacity of what was is married

to the vitality of what will be?
I don’t say
it’s easy, but
what else will do

if the love one claims to have for the world
be true?
So let us go on

though the sun be swinging east,
and the ponds be cold and black,
and the sweets of the year be doomed.

#tbt to that time there were only two of seven a-frames.  This felt like a crazy and critical time of the build sometimes having days of 50+ mph wind.  One by one they came up as we built the spine of the house.  I’ve always liked that there are seven.

✨Massive empowered action ➡️ massive growth ➡️ massive gratitude .
It’s the formula that works every damn time. Have you ever had a moment make you so crazy, freakin present and gratitude just rushes over you? .
Your mind reels like an old movie 🎥 projector of what you have been through, then how far you have come and then the “Effffff yessss” I’m so grateful. .
It’s the very second you realize that you have finally “let that shit go”. The heart ❤️ and soul strings of pain have been severed ✂️ and the freedom from the negative emotions is euphoric. The moment you realize you are healed.
.
I had this moment yesterday. My first marriage and divorce really took its toll on me and even after moving on with my life I still had some deep hurt that I had buried. YES! you can be happy and still have hurt. I’ve worked hard on myself for three years to understand it and heal. I’ve pushed away and leaned in. I’ve loved hard on this amazing man right here too. What an incredible souls he has been as he has also accepted and encouraged all I’ve had to process. I love you.
.
The universe put out some crazy signs yesterday but I caught every single one. 🙏🏻 And the gift was empowered gratitude. .
.
I encourage you to take the action to heal. It will bubble up every emotion but damn when you are done with it all the freedom is so friggen sweet. BTW- you will recognize the moment too. It’s unmistakeable. .

Go ahead...👉🏻#BeYourOwnHero👈🏻

We’re excited to have Mindsettle on channel 110 for patients at the Mater Hospital in Townsville. Mindsettle is focussed on improving emotional wellbeing. This mindful content is a digital tool to bring the restorative and calming benefits of nature to individuals who want/need to settle their minds.

Captivated by the natural beauty of flowers. It's cold weather season, Fall, here in Houston. Nice to see some resemblance of Spring though. Spring forward.

Get outside for some Ecotherapy!!! It’s how I get inspired when I’m in a more natural setting. Sitting here on the beach the sand dunes got me thinking about their advice 😉 
Nature teaches us the various physical and psychological benefits of being outside. Here’s just a few to get you inspired to get outdoors more! 
1. Mental Benefits. Studies have found that the closer someone lived to a green space or nature area, the healthier that person was likely to be. 
2. Heart & Stress Benefits 
3. ADD & ADHD

4. Sleep Improvements & Longevity

5. Vitamin D

6. Exercise

7. Grounding

8. Fresh Air

Share your nature pics with me #ds365 and leave me a comment below on how nature 🌱makes you feel when you both hang out with each other. 
Happy Thursday!

Life has significantly changed for me since I’ve learned to practice mindfulness. With some effort, I am able to be present in the moment instead of having my mind wander, thinking of the past and worrying about the future. Life has also been different since I started changing my perspective on things, but it wasn’t always this way. In the midst of a very stressful life event, I was encouraged by friends to seek therapy. At first I was hesitant because I didn’t think there was anything “wrong” with me, but in hindsight, admitting I could use some help and taking the initiative to see a therapist was one of the best things I did for myself. I’ve learned so much about myself- my patterns and habits, how my childhood affected my adulthood and how it motivates my present day actions, how to love myself, how to accept myself despite my flaws and mistakes, how to understand my emotions and process them in a healthy way, how to deal with my insecurities, how to heal past wounds and move forward from them, how to express my emotions instead of suppressing them, etc. There were many moments where I loathed myself, wanted to disappear forever, felt undeserving of others, and thus, pushed away the people closest to me, but I was truly blessed for those that showed me love, support, & kindness even in my ugliest (when I say ugly, I mean reeeaaal ugly 😅) hours. This stressful life event along with therapy has humbled me and has taught me to understand others & be more compassionate instead of judging others. World Mental Health Day was a week ago, but I feel it should be brought to light more often to break the stigma. If you’re going through something and you’re reading this, know that you are enough, you matter, that it’s okay to not be okay, & it’s perfectly fine to ask for help! Let us also remember to be kind to ourselves bc we are deserving & to be kind to others bc we don’t know what battles others are fighting. I suppose self growth and the road to happiness is a life long journey, so we might as well embrace the process- even the most painful and uncomfortable ones, because without that, we wouldn’t know the meaning of happiness!

Spending a few restorative moments in the garden. I love autumn, it's my favourite season. Admiring the little mushrooms, how the evening primrose is still flowing, the blackberries still here, the festive yew berries that look like jewels and the amazing red hue that the leaves on my blueberry pants have gone ❤️

Plein air pastel painting of Curtis Island Lighthouse, Camden, Maine. 3rd in the Maine Lighthouse series. I decided to try a plein air painting with pastels. They were easy to use outside, but I need to buy some better paper so the pastels adhere better. Still learning. Video courtesy of  @johnkuhnphotography •

Spring is life returning with passionate intensity - even where you least expect it
Spring is life returning with passionate intensity - even where you least expect it
"Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go..." Autumn has always felt like an epic flurry of bright, beautiful change to me. The fiery colors of the leaves changing before fading into dull browns and falling to the ground urge me to stay in the moment and appreciate this exquisite celebration of the life cycle of the trees. 
And then, when the trees release the last of the leaves to the Earth, I grieve. And I remember that death is an important part of the cycle that ultimately creates room for and fuels new growth as the seasons come full circle. There is space for all of these thoughts and feelings.

Acknowledge all the exhilaration, fear, relief, sadness, pain and ambivalence that comes with change. Stay present with those emotions, while also holding your values close as you allow yourself to shift to allow space for what's next. 
Is there anything in your life that you could benefit from letting go? 🍂
