Many of us have faced depression, struggled with low self-esteem, and other debilitating mental health challenges. My own journey with depression was a result of growing up with a rare blood disorder and being told I could never have children of my own. This completely changed my dreams of what family and life meant. Years later I suffered with a rare soft tissue sarcoma, yet, baffling the best of doctors, I survived. I’m a tough nut to crack!
My book, Falling into Faith, A Journey to Freedom, is a candid and honest account of my journey. I detail the struggles of living with constant pain and disease, and the power associated with learning to forgive and break free from the heavy chains that encumber and…

Combating Addiction With Hypnosis

You’re reading Combating Addiction With Hypnosis, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you’re enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles.

Hypnosis is more than what you have seen on television or part of a magic show. Despite the stigma, hypnotherapy has been used to treat insomnia, fear, anxiety and has been considered a breakthrough in addiction treatment.
Addiction has gotten a reputation as a disease that cannot be cured. It’s common knowledge that once an addict, always an addict. Even if an addict has been sober for years, there is a relatively strong chance they will relapse at some point.
We see evidence for this all the time. Those of us who have suffered from addiction, or are close to someone who has, know that rehabs are crowded with second, third, or fourth-timers.
If you don’t personally know someone who has struggled with addiction, you’ve at least seen high profile celebrities…

How To Find A Mother Figure When Your Mom Has a Mental Illness

You’re reading How To Find A Mother Figure When Your Mom Has a Mental Illness, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you’re enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles.

My name is Ally Golden and I wrote my memoir, A Good Soldier, about my relationship with my mother, who suffered from Borderline Personality Disorder. Because of her disease, my mother and I never had a normal relationship. The love she gave was never without strings attached. Her affections depended on the amount of attention I paid to her and her mood on the given day. Our relationship was not all bad, I know what characterizes a good mom from her good moments: comforting me through the injustices of middle school friendships and advocating on my behalf to choral instructors. However, the intermittent tastes of good parenting only left me wanting more. For most of my life, I have…

The Connection Between Mental Health and Food

You’re reading The Connection Between Mental Health and Food, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you’re enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles.

For people who struggle with mental illness, food can have all sorts of positive and negative meanings. Certain foods can help or hinder maintaining a healthy emotional state, others can trigger unhealthy spirals: They can contribute to specific mental health issues that can cause dramatic changes in eating habits — which can further exacerbate those psychological problems.
It’s important to mention that food alone doesn’t fix mental health issues, and anyone who tells you otherwise is probably trying to sell you something. However it’s an extremely important part of our daily lives that affects mood, energy, and gut chemistry, and it’s often involved with triggers or symptoms related to mental illness. So as a potent method of self-care, mental health maintenance, and healing over time, food…

You just woke up and the first thought that crosses your mind is “I’m depressed.” Immediately your body gets into an agreement with your mind and you instantly feel depressed. You now find yourself in a slumber as you attempt to start your day. Sad thoughts of failure, disappointment, loss, death, and anything else to contribute to your sadness overwhelm you like a force of a hurricane wind. You question if you can even face this day.  Sound familiar?
Here is another scenario. You’re having a great day and suddenly a thought crosses your mind, but not just any thought, it is a thought that provokes your deepest anxieties. Maybe the thought is “what if my husband cheats on me.” “what if my child gets sick and dies,” “what if…

5 Ways to Deal With People Who Drain You Emotionally

You’re reading 5 Ways to Deal With People Who Drain You Emotionally, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you’re enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles.

Vampires? For real?
Yup, vampires. They are all around us and while they might not try to bite your neck and suck your blood, these vampires are a lot more efficient and have plenty of people to feed on unnoticed.
People who drain us emotionally (or sometimes called emotional vampires) are people who suck all the positive energy out of you. You’ve met at least one before; your co-worker who all they do is complain about everyone in the office, constantly. Or your step-aunt who just can’t seem to stay out of drama-filled situations and tells you all about it.
Whenever you’re with them your mood radically changes, you feel tired, tons more pessimistic and less patient.
Emotional drainers come in many different shapes and sizes…
