    Moving forwards

    I know it's easy to fixate on all the mistakes we've made in the past. But all this does is make us feel guilty, depressed, or angry. It's of course good to learn from the past and use it to reflect on how you can be better, but don't hold yourself hostage in the past. Let yourself go so you can face forwards and focus on how you can work on making your life better. Are there some things from that past that you can use to be a better you for tomorrow?

    Also, I recently launched my own neuroscience mental health company called Neurora, where my team and I help other companies in Copenhagen with stress-related burnout. I'd really love it if those of you who are on LinkedIn could follow my company's profile for support. Here's the link:

    ~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

    Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

    Be you

    I'm very familiar with being acceptance-driven and trying to change aspects of myself so that others will like me. But for what? It didn't really get me anywhere in the long run. We spend so much time doing this; all it does is pressure ourselves to be someone else, ultimately making it impossible to love ourselves genuinely. Today, I'm still very involved in changing myself, but it's more like I'm developing myself. If you put just a little bit of effort into improving yourself, the right people will automatically appear in your life and help you blossom. Is anyone familiar with this in romantic, platonic, or professional relationships? How did you get out of this trap and what sorts of things do you do to change/improve yourself for the better?

    Also, I have news! Many of you don't know this but I have a PhD in cognitive neuroscience and have been working for several neuro-tech companies in Denmark over the years. This week I announced that I am launching my own Danish neuro-tech mental health company called Neurora, where my team and I help other companies in Copenhagen with stress-related burnout. I'd really love it if those of you who are on LinkedIn could follow me and/or my company's profile for support. There I will post about how to have a healthy work-life balance and tools anyone can use to de-stress.

    Feelings

    What do you guys think about this one? I know for me, I'm grateful for the lows and the challenges I've faced because it gives depth and meaning to the joys and progress that I make. Being sensitive is a great ability to have, especially when we can accept ourselves as we are and give permission for ourselves to feel the full range of the human experience. Do you think your feelings are both a blessing and a curse or maybe only one of them?

    Do your tasks one at a time

    I know that chores and exercises can seem like a huge pain, which easily makes us want to get through them as quickly as possible. But if you're anything like me, the list of things to do will never end. There will always be more problems to fix, things that need my attention, solutions that need to be found, and so forth. If we attend to these things with the attitude of frustration, irritation, and impatience, we will spend most of our lives miserable. Try to practice doing your tasks one at a time, and give yourself permission to do so peacefully. This will give you so much space in your life and will remove a lot of negative thinking. Is this attitude possible for you? What do you think?

    I'm new here!

    Hi everyone,
    I am currently working on a web app to help people living with dissociative symptoms. I am still on very early stages of this development, and I would love to hear from you what you feel that could be useful! What do you think you need the most that could be in the form of a website?
    It is possible that, if it shows useful, a mobile app version will also be built later, but for now I don't have resources or enough knowledge on mobile development yet.
    Thanks in advance for your inputs!

    A loving foundation

    One can read this literally and reflect on your physical home, but how about we take this further and reflect on the home we've created in our mind? How quick are we to look down on others or ourselves, how quick are we to judge, and how often do we consume information junk through screen time? On the other side, how often are we to express gratitude towards others and ourselves, how often do we look up for inspiration, and how often do we practice positive learning and mental health tools? If you see an imbalance here, do you think that might contribute to your outlook on life? How is your loving foundation in your mind?

    ~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

    In the face of sickness ...

    In the battle against illness, you stand strong,

    A warrior fighting, determined all along.

    Though the road is tough, and the journey long,

    Inside you burns a fire, fierce and strong.

    With every setback, you rise again,

    A spirit unyielding, refusing to bend.

    You embrace each challenge, no matter how tough,

    For within you lies resilience, more than enough.

    In the depths of darkness, you find the light,

    Drawing strength from within, shining so bright.

    Your body may be weak, but your spirit soars high,

    With hope as your armor, you reach for the sky.

    Each day is a step, a testament of your might,

    A testament of courage, perseverance, and fight.

    You're not alone, for a support system stands by,

    Cheering you on, with love in their eyes.

    Remember, healing takes time, it's true,

    But trust in the process, and the strength within you.

    Hold onto hope, let it fuel your desire,

    To overcome this battle, to rise even higher.

    So keep pushing forward, with your head held high,

    Believe in your power, let your spirit fly.

    For you are a warrior, brave and true,

    And victory over sickness, you shall pursue.

    Stay strong, stay brave, and never lose sight,

    For your determination will guide you through the fight.

    You have the strength within, to overcome this strife,

    And reclaim your health, a renewed lease on life.

    Keep fighting, my friend, with every breath you take,

    Know that you are loved, and that healing's in your wake.

    You are capable, you are strong, don't ever give in,

    You have the power to conquer, let the battle begin.

    Judgment

    Recently I came to think about that fear of failure is actually fear of judgment. We often don't want to try new things or try the same thing again because if we fail, we think that others will think we are weak to stupid or maybe even trying to hard. Can any of you relate to this? An unfortunate truth is that people will judge us no matter what we do. We can be just sitting on a bench enjoying ourselves and someone can look at us and think all sorts of things. It's hard to let this go, but don't let this stop you from trying to accomplish your goals. Is there anything that is holding you back because of fear of judgment? What are some things you do to overcome this?

    Awareness

    Eckhart Tolle is one of my favorite mindfulness teachers. He has a brilliant way of helping people overcome the power of their minds. I really recommend you watch his youtube videos for free if you are having intrusive thoughts. When you read his guidance here, does it make sense at all? How does this make you feel?

    Bedtime rituals

    There are all sorts of good mental health rituals that we can practice before going to bed. One is no screentime to not only prevent overstimulation but also reduce the blue light from activating wakefulness in our brains. Something I like to do is watch mental health videos from my favorite teacher Mooji. Today, I saw this quote about forgiveness and thought that if forgiveness is something you have difficulty with, that could indicate it is exactly what you need to do. What do you think? Is that asking too much? Or do you have other before-bed rituals that help you sleep?
