Hello again its been a while. I wanted kick off with a writing by someone dear to me, a person that has been to the dept of darkness. By Understandme – Instagram Existing but not living they say. Lonely, but not even alone today. Tired, but suffering from insomnia every night. The darkness consumes me, I can’t find the light. Try harder they say. They don’t understand, maybe it will come their way. I never thought it could happen to me. A happy soul, positive and free. Self hate consumes my head. So much to do but I can’t get out of bed. I want to give up, just here waiting for my spell of good luck. Be careful what you wish for they say, it’s all a game until it chooses you to play. So much stigma comes with it, it was a time where I have never felt so SHIT. Why did I answer when it knocked on the door? It was hard to shut, it happens to one in four. I lost all my important skills, communication, interacting – such import drills. You lose a sense of who you are. Wherever I went, it wasn’t far. So I say please keep going, you aren’t alone. Whenever you’re down just pick up the phone, call anyone, text or email. Book an appointment, breath, inhale, exhale. The light is at the end of the tunnel we all need a shoulder to cry on. Keep going, you’ll come out a strong one. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, I say hang on a little longer. Change what you eat, exercise and try remedies for sleep, this will all end and when you look back one day it won’t seem as deep. Try new things counselling, therapy or exercise, you may not think it will work but it may do to your surprise. My sister used to say “you didn’t come this far too only come this far” take a drive, it may help – in the car. But all I ask is keep going, each day will get a little easier than the one before. Everyday you will feel stronger a little more ….. Let me know your thoughts on it, I appreciate and welcome comments  Understanding Me. Copy Right Understand Me Feel free to forward any question or comments to info@mindingthesoul.co.uk and we will forward these on to Understand Me who respond back to yu direct. Love and Blessings Susan x

Expressing Gratitude Is Linked To A Healthier Heart, Study Finds

untitled (44)

Gratitude doesn’t just warm your heart, it may also lead to a healthier one, a new study suggests.

Research published by the American Psychological Association found patients with asymptomatic heart failure showed decreased levels of inflammatory biomarkers in the body, which are related to improved cardiac health. The study consisted of 186 men and women who kept a gratitude journal for eight weeks as they received regular clinical care.

“It seems that a more grateful heart is indeed a more healthy heart, and that gratitude journaling is an easy way to support cardiac health,” wrote lead author Paul J. Mills, Ph.D., professor of family medicine and public health at the University of California, San Diego. The study also found that gratitude contributed to spiritual well-being, which was associated with improved mood and better sleep.

This isn’t the first time researchers have discovered a positive association between thankfulness and an improved heart. A 1995 study published in the American Journal of Cardiology found that positive emotions and appreciation are linked with changes in heart rate variability. The new APA findings also saw heart rate variability changes in the patients who had a thankful outlook.

The study results add to a growing list of reasons to express gratitude beyond the Thanksgiving table. Research has shown that thankfulness can increase optimism, strengthen your relationships, improve your immune system and even offset the effects of materialism.

Now that is something to be grateful for.

Make That Change – Illness to Stillness in 2015

During the course of 2014, I helped so many people of all ages move from Illness to Stillness as they face their person pain, often deep rooted in childhood trauma. The transformation for some was immense for others enough to put them back on track and gain an understanding of themselves and move forward without fear.

I say to you reading this, do not suffer in silence. If you find yourself in personal pain, confusion, anxious, fearful, depressed, with phobias, unable to sleep, do not suffer in silence, take the steps to take your power back by seeking help and make 2015 the year you change your life.
