There are so many moments in life, especially now, that we end up taking for granted. Moments that seem to pass us by without us even noticing them. Sometimes we don’t even give them a thought and can’t remember them a few seconds later.
With our thoughts and emotions so wrapped up in what is happening in the world right now, it is easy to dwell on the negative aspects of life. It is simple to fall down the rabbit hole of watching the news and getting sucked into the feeling of hopelessness that is projected at you every single minute of every single day. I will go as far as to say that it is human nature to do so.
The purpose of today’s show, however, is to try to have you feel what I am calling the “softness” in your day. The “softness”, opposed to the “roughness” of the negative vibes that are being thrown around right now, are things that we tend to take for granted and overlook at times.

The world has been turned upside down over the past few weeks. People have gone from enjoying the company of their friends and family, having nights out on the town, dining in restaurants, and simply being able to work, to being isolated in their homes for long periods of time.
This situation is unprecedented and very unnatural to us as a society and we are struggling to adapt.
How does this isolation affect your happiness? How is being kept apart from others by social distancing and stay-at-home orders affecting your moments of happiness?

There is really no other way to put it and, unfortunately, rejection happens to all of us in some way or another at some point in our life. Whether you were passed up for a promotion, excluded from a social event, or turned down by someone you felt attracted to, rejection hurts. The way you respond to rejection, however, could determine how your life plays out in at least the short-term, but also possibly the long-term.
In this episode, I discuss ways to overcome the pain of rejection and use it to become stronger mentally.

Are you someone who feels like they always need to say yes? Do you always feel the need to help others even if it means sacrificing your own happiness? It's time you just say no!

Asking for help is one of the most difficult things to do as human beings. It is a sign of weakness and failure, especially when it comes to dealing with our mental health. The stigma is so strong, in fact, that over 60% of people suffer without any type of professional help with their mental illness when they could be getting the help they so desperately need.
In this episode, I discuss why asking for help is so difficult, why it is so important, and ways you can ask for help if you need it.
If you are looking for help with your mental health, please contact the National Alliance on Mental Illness for more information.
