If you had said this to me awhile ago, I wouldn't have believed you. However, after spending years practicing changing my own perspective, I can tell you without a doubt - it's true. It's not just words, not just a counselor singing the praises of therapy. It is true, and you can discover this for yourself, in your own life. While I know that words don't teach, experience does, I found that Viktor Frankl's "Man's Search for Meaning" offers a great place to begin; filled with words about his gruesome experiences staying free in Nazi concentration camps. Check it out - you'll be amazed at the power you have inherently within you. #perspective #whereisyours #yourthoughtscreateyourreality #braingames #mindcontrol #viktorfrankl #psychiatrist #manssearchformeaning #freedom #freeyourmind #changeyourthoughts #changeyourlife #universallaw #universallaws #lawofattraction #lawofallowing #observe #allow #meditate #meditation #calm #gamechanger #youcandoit

A Trauma Sensitive Classroom Tip: Rather than ask students about what they did over the summer, consider these questions instead: 1. What do you love learning about? 2. What do you most look forward to this school year? 3. What are three awesome things about yourself? 4. What is one thing you'd like your teacher and classmates to know about you? 5. What is something new you'd like to make, create, try, build and/or learn about? . . #traumasensitive #trauma #sensitive #tips #schools #teachers #educators #k12 #safehaven #safety #noshame #traumasensitiveschools #schoolcounselor #schooltime #trauma #traumarecovery #awareness #donoharm #keepkidssafe #askingquestions #icebreakers #foreveryone #kids #keeplearningkeepgrowing #mentalhealtheducation @wholeheartedschoolcounseling πŸ’™πŸ’š

Did you know if you start eating your last meal earlier in the evening, you give your body a chance to rest & attend to other things when you're sleeping, versus having to work to digest what you just ate? Doing so helps us wake up feeling more energetic & refreshed, try it for yourself! πŸ“πŸπŸ‹πŸ₯¬πŸŽπŸ₯’πŸπŸ“πŸ This beautiful rainbow is pineapple, strawberry, red onion & cilantro with a smoothie full of spinach, romaine, celery, cucumber apple, pear, lemon, & strawberries... . . . #rawvegan #rawveganfood #rawvegandinner #fruit #greens #smoothie #fiber #glowinggreensmoothie #guthealthmatters #hydrate #goodmoodfood #goraw #vegan #fortheanimals #rawvegansofig #rawsome #plantbased #veganfitgirl #plantbaseddiet #feelbetter #mentalhealtheducation #wholisticliving #healthy #secondbrain #loveyourself #eattherainbow

Self-care & self-love aren't skills we are all taught; & oftentimes, when witnessed, these acts of self-directed kindnesses may be misinterpreted as egotism, conceit, arrogance, self-absorption - even by ourselves at first! β€’ Learning how to love yourself, & discovering what it is you love, is an empowering, fulfilling transformative experience. and.... the best way to help others is to "be the example you want to see" as Gandhi so eloquently said... love this depiction by @better-you.atl β™₯οΈπŸ’šπŸ’™β™₯οΈπŸ’šπŸ’™β™₯οΈπŸ’šπŸ’™β™₯οΈπŸ’š #selfcare #selflove #loveyourself #lovingyourself #lovingyou #love #lovingme #unconditionallove #forourselves #unconditional_love #bodyimage #healing #loveforyou #makepeace #compassion #mentalhealtheducation #howto #feelbetter #learnhow #calm #braingames #selfsoothe #begentlewithyourself #youareloved
