Here are the Editor's Picks articles for the Mental Health Site! These are the top ten articles that your Mental Health Editor feels are most important for you to read. Enjoy!
1. Dealing With Over Worrying
Worrying seems to be our favourite past time. We have got so accustomed to worrying that living without it seems un-natural. In this article I offer you some practical advice to help you to deal with your own over worrying patterns.
2. How to Be Assertive
Are you good at giving reasonable, balanced but powerful responses to conflict? Assertiveness requires a complex mixture of five skills. See examples of the passive, aggressive, and assertive responses to the same difficult situation. And learn how to teach yourself the five skills of assertiveness.
3. It's Not Too Late To Change
Change is a natural part of life that many people are afraid of. The fear generally comes from the feeling of being out of control and having to make forced changes that can seem impossible to surmount. Change doesn't have to be scary, and it can also add to making us better people.
4. Cognitive Behavior Therapy
CBTis a useful therapy to assist with challenging our thoughts and finding new ways of thinking that are more functional. Here I offer an overview and a technique to try when your thoughts are challenging.
5. 8 Steps To Loving Yourself
The most important relationship we can have in life is with ourself. The more comfortable we feel with who we are the more confident and accepted we feel in our world.
6. How Do You Measure Your Self-Worth
Feelings of self-worth can come in many forms. There is a tendency to measure our self worth against how many things we have and how successful we are. Mostly these are empty expressions of self-worth. I believe there is a much deeper way of feeling good about yourself.
7. Is Life Just A Matter Of Perspective
Life is so different for many of us, and there is some thought that perhaps it is our attitude that affects us more than anything else. Our minds are really powerful and will fulfil long held beliefs about life and how it will be for us.
8. What Is Mental Health
Mental health challenges can be tough, and we all experience some kind of mental health issue at least once in our lives. When you consider stress, anxiety and depression as being fairly 'normal' for most people, it is a wonder we ever find peace of mind.
9. Do You Feel Understood
Sometimes conversations are taken the 'wrong' way or completely mis-understood. It is hard to know what is going on for another during any interaction and sometimes it can leave us feeling confused when we are mis-understood
10. Are Our Hormones Making Us Crazy
Hormone imbalances may be affecting you more than you realise. I explore some thoughts around how we function with hormone imbalances and whether it is possible to really think clearly or with clarity.
