⏰Sleeping With The Mental Mess

Sleep Through It

Your first thought is, “Oh my, I am not alone.” And then you think, “Well of course I am not alone—there are billions of us!” Just to crawl back in bed, grab the pillow. Ah! To be in that comfy spot, for as long as you want. Its true that we must sleep for the body to heal. Then thoughts start to bring the mental mess, just to sleep would stop those creepers. .You can feel yourself trumbling into a pit of self-doubt and despair. But then you remember that nobody knows what the right way of being is, so it doesn’t make sense to judge your particular version or anyone else’s. We are all just trying our best and this moment too shall pass.

You have spent many hours trying to figure out what makes life worth living—but now here you are with no answers at all except for the most basic ones: food, sleep and love (and varying amounts thereof). As we try to get through the crazy in the world, we forget about the moment. Glad to be present and focused. Ignoring all the needs and wants, leaving us confused.

Here are ideas to help clear the mess;

Perfection is your enemy.

As an artistic type, you are probably a perfectionist. You will also likely be very hard on yourself, always striving for the best outcome and beating yourself up when it doesn’t happen.

That’s all great, but sometimes in order to get something done or make something happen (like stepping out of your comfort zone), we have to stop being so hard on ourselves and realize that our best is good enough. Take a calm approach instead of getting defeating. Be patient to get things done.

We must learn how to accept imperfection as part of our creative process—and remember that there are no right answers! We are all unique individuals who look at the world in different ways; therefore nothing will ever fit exactly as it should or be perfect according to our own standards. Be patient with your achievements, as its only our own standards for the final results.. If you give your best then know its good enough.

Nothing can be solved in a single day.

if we learn anything it’s you can’t expect to fix everything in a given day. It takes time to get through challenges. Sometimes it can be best to make a plan of action. It can be difficult to solve a challenge without finding a solution. Seeing how you will solve the problem in writing; can help visualize needs to a solution.

One of the most important things I’ve learned is to not beat myself up over something, if I don’t succeed at something once trying. Each challenge helps us to learn what works and what doesn’t work. Its okay if you don”t get it straight away.

This is because problems take time to solve, and you can’t change everything in a day (or even a week). It’s also important to have a routine and stick to it as much as possible. Everyone has good days and bad days, so it’s best to get used to this fact and learn how to deal with them.

Everyone’s just as lost as you.

We are all dealing with personal challenges. How we handle challenges is our special task that we learn overtime, our own way.

If you can’t ask for help ask for advice. Given in today’s society thevstruggles are real as ever. Its a messy world and so much to deal with, its easy to want to sleep through it. Sadly it just doesn’t pass over night. You wake up to start the mental mess all over. The problem isn’t still there as we left it.

It’s okay to not be okay

There are no shoulds or musts anymore.. Its a world where we learn to solve problems our way. Most importantly when we aren’t okay, its okay to create a plan. Awareness is what helps us when we aren’t okay. Just being aware can give us options. These option are what feels right or wrong. Knowingly, if you need advice resources are available. If you need to talk those people exist. Its what gets your needs meet.

You can do what you want. You don’t need to follow a certian way and some decisions in life don’t have to be life-changing. No one should tell you otherwise, unless you feel unable to make your own choices or decisions.

You always have choices—and that includes the choice not to make a choice. You can decide not to decide for as long as it makes sense for you, and that decision won’t hurt anyone or anything else. In fact if decisions help then: The less pressure on yourself from external forces (including from others), can be better!

It’s okay to get help.

You can’t do this alone, and neither should you try. Talk to your friends and family, and consider seeing a professional if you need one. You’re in good company—your friends and family are more likely than not going through the same stuff as you!

Be careful what you say yes to, because it can change everything. You know what best for your own being. Just don’t let matters continue to worsen without seeking help for your own being. Prolonged mental health concerns can get worse. Take care of yourself. You are not selfish to need self care.

Until our minds meet again. Be safe out there. Blessing and much love. Remember Everyday Mind’s Matters 🌸

🌼How to Understand Yourself Better

Date Yourself by Chop Suey is licensed under CC-BY-NC-ND 4.0

Life is hard enough without spending your time trying to figure out why you’re the way you are. Unfortunately, sometimes the only way to understand yourself better is to really dig in and examine how you think, how you feel, and how you interact with other people. This can be difficult, but it’s worth the effort if you want to live a more fulfilling life! Here are some ways that you can better understand yourself and find more happiness in your day-to-day life.

What is Self Awareness?
Self-awareness is also referred to as self-reflection. Self-awareness is a form of introspection, or looking within yourself and understanding what makes you who you are as an individual. Understanding who you are enables you to understand how your actions affect others and how others’ actions affect you. It also allows us to understand our values, beliefs, strengths, weaknesses and other things that make up our personality. Self-awareness takes time and work, but with consistent practice it will become easier over time.

Ask yourself What Would Others Think?
Although you may be aware of your strengths and weaknesses, it can be difficult to have an unbiased opinion on how you are doing. It’s important that you see yourself from an outside perspective in order to get a good idea of how others see you. Take some time with a friend or family member that knows you well and ask for feedback. If possible, offer them specific examples about what traits about yourself that they should look for when evaluating your performance.

How Can I Feel Loved and Appreciated?
One way to improve your self-esteem is by looking at how you can feel loved and appreciated. If you’re having trouble feeling good about yourself, it’s easy to get caught up in worrying about what other people think of you. Instead, it’s important that you take care of yourself first and foremost. Find ways that you can feel nurtured and supported so that your self-confidence increases. This will make it easier for other people to like you, too!

Can I Break Any Bad Habits?
One of our personal goals is usually to improve ourselves, but if you’re like many of us, then you probably have a few bad habits that stand in your way. Whether it’s overeating or being late for work, it can be difficult to change longstanding behaviors. Luckily, there are several ways you can kick any bad habit—no matter how long you’ve had it. Keep reading for tips and techniques on how to fix negative behavior once and for all.

What Are My Strengths?
Make a list of your strengths. They can be characteristics or skills—basically anything that you do well. Once you’ve listed them, ask yourself what your strengths mean for your career and life in general. You may find that one strength carries over into multiple aspects of your life, or you may discover a few new directions in which to take things. Either way, take some time to make sure that you’re playing up all of your strengths as much as possible.

What Do I Do Well?
If you’re going to be your own self-evaluator, it helps if you have a firm grasp on what you do well. Spend some time thinking about your best traits and natural gifts—things that make it clear why certain people like and trust you (and why employers should, too). On another piece of paper, write down things that could get in your way professionally: behaviors or personality quirks that might cause someone to question whether or not they want to hire you.

Am I Really Happy Right Now?
ppl are often surprised when they discover that their happiness is not what they thought it was. For example, you might think you’re happy because you have a new car or a promotion at work, but in reality, you may be unhappy because your marriage is falling apart or your kids are driving you crazy. To get a better idea of what true happiness looks like for you, ask yourself these questions: What are my top three sources of happiness? What am I doing that contributes to my overall happiness?

Who Is In My Corner?
Getting in touch with your deepest, truest self can be difficult. Often we’re told that we need others—our families, friends, or significant others—to understand who we are. But ultimately, it’s not those people who know us best; it’s us. Whether you want to better understand yourself or someone else, these tips will help you get there.i

Am I At Peace With The Past?
Most of us struggle with our past from time to time, wondering if we could have done things differently or if we missed out on some important moments in life. If you’re not at peace with your past, you can learn how to move forward by learning how people who are at peace with their pasts handle similar situations.

Which Relationships Are Positive Ones For Me?
The number of relationships in your life can impact your mental health—particularly if they’re unhealthy. It’s important to look at each relationship you have and decide whether it’s making you happier or healthier. If not, then you need to think about how that relationship makes you feel, and how it might be impacting your life negatively. Read more about it here…

At the end of each day, we are who we acknowledge to be. It takes time to understand the difference in our true self. Continue to take responsibility for your actions and behavior. Self-evaluate the things your good at and improve your flaws. We all struggle on a regular day to day basis. Helping yourself is a reward of its own. Everyday is a new day to try again or continue to learn “you”. Take time to be your best self by understanding your feelings, thought, and well-being.

Until our minds meet again. Be safe out there, blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Mind’s Matter 💗

🧓An Assisted Living – No Place Like Home: The Choice, The Wisdom And The Decision👵

Photo by Anastasia Shuraeva on Pexels.com

Society has been debating over the moral and ethical implications of assisted living homes. They’re crucial for seniors who can’t live on their own due to health or other reasons, but they present a lot of issues with emotional and mental health. Is it ethical to put someone who’s already suffering from mental health issues in an assisted living home? In this article, we explore the choice, the wisdom, and decision- the aspects of living in one.

The Choice & Options

Oh snap, I can’t wait to get old and live in assistant living or nursing home.. Says not anyone ever.. Since a young age, my father regretted my grandfather being in a nursing home. In my belief, I don’t believe your golden years should be living in punishment. No one hopes togrow old and be put in jail. As life event happen, having to work we have no other choice.- to put loved ones in nursing homes or living assistance. No matter the circumstances we hope if a loved one has to choose a facility. These are the good – choice. We all hope that are final days and golden years are healthy, happy, and comfortable. To reduce the fear of aging and growing old, we welcome a child or relative by being the caregiver. Unfortunately, not all have that option. It’s something to consider in your choice & mindset package. See your options before hand, this conversation will give relief later in life. Think about financial options when your golden days are approaching. What are your choices? Use resources to plan ahead and concern the choices. How is your mental health? Are you able to be independent and continue to make your own decision?

There are many benefits to living in an assisted living home. One of the biggest benefits is that you will have access to around-the-clock care. This means that if you need help with anything, someone will always be there to assist you. Assisted living homes also provide social activities and opportunities to interact with other residents. This can help keep your mind sharp and can prevent loneliness. Another big benefit is that you will have your own private space – unlike a nursing home, where rooms are often shared. This can give you a much-needed sense of privacy and independence.

Of course, every situation is different, and not every assisted living home is perfect. But overall, the good outweighs the bad when it comes to assisted living. If you or a loved one are considering an assisted living arrangement, be sure to do your research to find the best possible option.

The Wisdom & Mindset

It would be easy to focus on the negative aspects of living in an assisted living home. After all, there are some definite downsides. For one thing, it can be very expensive. Assisted living homes typically cost between $2,000 and $5,000 per month, and that’s not including the cost of health care. That can be a difficult expense for many families to manage.

In addition, assisted living homes can be very restrictive. Residents typically have to follow a strict schedule and adhere to a set of rules. This can be difficult for people who are used to having a lot of freedom and independence.

Finally, assisted living homes can be depressing places. They are often filled with people who are sick, lonely, and afraid. It can be hard to see your loved ones in this type of environment. Loved one’s have a hard time adjusting or adapting to new places to call – home.

While many may feel that having to be a caregiver is not that hard. Being a caregiver is a special skilled job. The wisdom that your loved one has can possibly be damaged or destroyed if no options are available. The mental effects of depression and other health conditions put one at risk of serious health concerns. The saying, “no place like home” – stands true in many facts. Years of hard work to have wisdom tossed aside, is unfair. Wisdom seems to be a punishment of growing old. So much plays part in the decision of comfort and happiness. To be pushed aside because of inability to be independent. If you had or have been a caregiver to someone, think of the responsibility and quality care needed. Not everyone can be a caregiver. It takes a lot of patience to acknowledge the needs of a loved one.

Next the thinking has set in. What’s next finally-

The Decision

If you have an elderly loved one who is starting to need more help with activities of daily living, you may be considering a move to an assisted living facility. These communities provide assistance with things like bathing, dressing, eating, and medication management, while also offering social and recreational activities.

The decision is more than a choice or wisdom planning. Visiting a senior living facility is a great way to get a feel for what life would be like for your loved one. It also gives you an opportunity to meet the staff and see the type of care that is available. Here are some tips for making the most of your visit:

  1. Schedule a tour during normal business hours. This will give you a chance to see how the facility operates on a day-to-day basis.
  2. Ask questions! The staff should be able to answer any questions you have about the level of care available, the cost of living at the facility, and the types of activities that are offered.
  3. Talk to current residents. They can give you a first-hand account of what it’s like to live in the community. Be sure to ask about both the good and the bad so you can get a well-rounded picture.
  4. Trust what your loved one hsays. Also trust your instincts. If something does not feel right. – it most likely isn’t.
  5. Quality Care.. Think about Choices, wisdom & mindset.

In conclusion, living in an assisted living home can be a good or bad experience depending on the individual. Some people may find the structure and support to be beneficial, while others may find it stifling. It is important to weigh the pros and cons before making a decision about whether or not to move into an assisted living home. Understanding your options and plan ahead. Last minute choices can be risky. Reality is you have options, choices, before a decision is final.

Until our minds meet again, be safe out there much love & blessings. Remember that Everyday Mind’s Matter👣💘

🗄An Army of One – Learning To Be Your Own Best friend

Body and Mind

The goal here is to use intellectual experience to connect mental health and well-being. Resources available on the site, and life experiences to influence positive thinking. Inspire and encourage each other to appreciate the value of a healthy mind. Let’s be open minded, encourage positive energy relating to mental health challenges.

Self-confidence, awareness, control or values established consciously. Altered influences can be unconscious failing to control self urges or desires. Keep that self relationship on point. Yes, we fall out of line more than we should time to time. Correcting the dysfunction is important. Allowing self to regroup and focus recover from the disconnect. Awareness self accepts responsibility to a behavior, play factor to reoccurrence. Reoccurrence is accepting poor behavior as habit. Breaking habit can be challenging. It’s important to educate self with resources to overcome negative influences. Encourage routine, A simple smile can circulate for miles. If you catch one, you be glad you did.

At birth; a beautiful gift begins to develop into “self”. Gift of self is a connection that joins body and mind.. This relationship is committed throughout your lifetime. Building a solid core is established by environmental factors. Influences can effect self in many ways. The ability to control those influence vary between connection of body and mind. As physical and mental development take place, the self- is character. Aligning the relationship will be challenging at times. However it’s important to strengthen the connection daily. Time for self helps re-define needs, wants, desire, and motives. Your mind- the master over physical body. Acting to impulse behavior, your body may engage or act inappropriately. Self-conscious to poor behavior reflections character. Poor behavior will carry weight of embarrassment, pain, shame, and reflect poor character. Lesson can be used to encourage positive choices. Self character can prevent and avoid poor behavior. Consequences can last a lifetime.

Establishing healthy mental and physical connection. Learning yourself. Take time to listen to emotions, deal with relationships, overcome financial barriers. Create a plan to value morals. Have routine meetings with yourself to conquer obstacles. Determine the negative impacts your facing with situations. Educate yourself on mental health strategies. Yes, our friends say call me if you need to talk. However, we are busy and so are you. Sometimes it’s to late and we have that endless tearful moment. Everyone’s in bed. So it a great time to find those journaling tools. Expressing the details on paper allows you to release every emotion felt. No judgement, criticism, no embarrassment, you relieve the burden. Later once you get all the tension out, acknowledging a solution can be determined.

Rewarding benefits of journaling reduce stress and support mental health development.  Journaling in my opinion; the secret imaginary friend. Journaling can be referred to by your own choosing. When writing becomes routine, its remarkable how much you learn about yourself. And knowing your own happiness and hell is the road to healthy well-being.

It’s good to sit and chill. Take a minute and embrace the moment. You can learn so much in such short time.

Your not alone, we all have faced troubling, soul shaking tragedy in this lifetime. How you faced the world day in, day out – you did one day at a time. When you lost hope, taking grip to the loss, and climbed up – one grip at a time. The defeat; beat and fragile your body, unsure consequences of one more pull and grip. Extreme pain rips every fiber throughout your body. From beneath the breathe, a force of strength come alive. Courage, fire, and fearless, emerge the voice, “you got this”. That one friend who saves your ass? You got it! “Your mind”!

Your mind is not just a friend. Your mind is the master to all commands. Every step of the day, every breath, and creation body and soul. Conflict within will drive the mind to dark places. Your friend has only one need, you. You must work well to compromise life as best friends. To overcome emotional, physical, and mental challenges – you must join the army of one. That one best friend that has your back, your mind. Positive intake will generate healthy habits. Positive reinforcers enable abilities to remove negative energy as needed. At times, negative elements sneak in and create new behavior. Behaviors- that take slowly disconnect the power cord to your main source. The body and mind lose connection, and negative energy impacts, of careless behavior/ actions.

Bitter “Truth” a separation of body and mind; is not terms for happiness. One relationship you must fight for your entire journey in life. Joined as an army of one- The reflection is always viewed by others.

Of course we have outside influences of friends. The outer friend can offer happiness to life. New friends share influences to our personal space. To know allow friends into our recruiting lounge, being open minded is priority. Determine the influences and requirements to establish friendship. How does friend influence my army? Positive energy or negative energy? When energies connect the influences combine. You just maintain your army on a regular basis. Once the alignment pulls away, unwelcomed habits form as health decline.

Maintaining connection between body and mind should be regularly with alone time. Listen to your emotions, physical needs, mental functions. Practice healthy exercises that re-establish your relationship. The positive and negative outside friends will influence you throughout the lifetime. How you relate to influences are by choice. Time to yourself can enhance personal growth of body and mind. That character is the master behind the scenes.

A healthy self relationship is knowing who your are defined by character. Allowing personal growth can help challenging situation as they surface. Knowing your strengths and weakness will prevent outcome. Knowing solutions to challenging by your own self is important. Do you blow up to small situations and get more defeated? Do you look for resources for advice on situations? Are you strong willed to align body and mind blocking negative influences?

When your eyes went dark, you washed them off,. looking in the mirror you took a moment, glaced at yourself: what did you say? What do you say about your self -best friend?

If you journal release some self energy to yourself. How will you handle situation you deal with now? Write a journal entry to yourself. What issues are you aware of that are disconnected with body and mind? If you like please feel free to use comments to release thoughts and feedback. Or just write in flow whatever your thoughts flow with.

Until our minds meet again. Be safe out there. Blessings snd much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter!🤗
