Understanding your emotions, understanding yourself

While evidence suggests some emotions are universal, there is no one-size-fits-all emotional balance that suits all individuals.
We all benefit from better understanding our emotions and how they impact our behavior, especially when they are at odds with our daily lives and lifelong goals.

Don’t forget to wear red ❤️

Don’t forget to wear red ❤️

Wednesday, May 5, 2021 marks the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and S2, under normal circumstances, people across Canada would be preparing marches, demonstrations, and memorials for the lives lost to an ongoing crisis of systemic violence.

“Many people across Turtle Island will wear red May 5th to remember the women and girls who have gone missing from our communities, and whose lives were lost.

“My heart is with all those who have had their mother, daughter, auntie, cousin, friend, grandmother, or granddaughter go missing, and never return home,” stated Assembly of First Nations Alberta Regional Chief Marlene Poitras.

“As COVID-19 has brought a halt to public and mass gatherings, it is absolutely essential to address and remember the cultural genocide of Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ individuals that must be stopped. Rates of domestic violence and abuse are rising on a global scale due to the social distancing and isolation measures in effect.”

We stand in solidarity with victims, survivors, and their families, and once again call for action to bring an end to the violence against Indigenous women and girls that continues to be endemic in this country, and across North America.

It is Mental Health Week!

During these times, you can experience feelings of anxiety and isolation, so feeling worried and lonely makes sense.
Good mental health doesn’t mean feeling happy all the time.

This Mental Health Week, let’s name, express and learn to deal with our emotions— even the uncomfortable ones. Because heavy feelings lighten when you put them into words. Key Message this week is to embrace all of your emotions—whether they feel good or challenging or difficult. It’s all part of being human.

This week—and every week after—don’t go uncomfortably numb. #GetReal about how you feel. And name it, don’t numb it.

Keep an eye out for more posts on this topic throughout the week!

Is there a link for the lessons??? Are they all the same or is there a different one for each event???
I just started to follow this group. When I try to watch a video, I get the video but with no sound. This is true with all of the videos. My volume is turned up full. Is there something else I must do?
My two Doctors Dr Nicole McDonald and Dr Julie Myers thanks you for taking the time and working with my cardiologist  
Terry Gorski was leader in this in the early 80’s in regards to Post Acute Withdrawal and I took some training with him back in the day. Enjoy this video as it is only 12 and half minutes long. We all go thru this in recovery doesn’t matter who we are. I white knuckled it when I sobered up 30 years ago. Recovery is a Journey not an event! This too shall pass! Enjoy!!
