Back in 2003, our counselor, Dr. “Boyd” Whaley from North Georgia Family Counseling Center, shared research that only 10% of marriages are truly happy. Wow! 😮 If 90% of marriages either stay together unfulfilled or end up in divorce, what does it look like to be in the top 10%? 💞 Answer in today's blog, 'Wow! How? and Now in Your Marriage' (link in bio) 📷: Priscilla Du Preez

My husband, Russ and I have spent a lot of time in therapy. I thought the purpose of therapy was to learn how to stop fighting. It wasn't. 😡 Instead, we learned the tools how to fight better but also how to recover better. 👥💬❤️ Learning how to maintain emotional engagement during disagreements was not modeled in my family of origin. I'm not sure how many families know how to disagree and have soothing interactions. Do you? ❓ credit: @nm_seminars

Repost @annekesips ・・・ YOUNG PEOPLE AND MENTAL HEALTH IN A CHANGING WORLD — this is the theme the #worldhealthorganization chose this year to bring awareness to. . Adolescence and the early years of adulthood are a time of life when many changes occur, for example changing schools, leaving home, and starting university or a new job. For many, these are exciting times. They can also be times of stress and apprehension however. In some cases, if not recognized and managed, these feelings can lead to mental illness. The expanding use of online technologies, while undoubtedly bringing many benefits, can also bring additional pressures, as connectivity to virtual networks at any time of the day and night grows. Many adolescents are also living in areas affected by humanitarian emergencies such as conflicts, natural disasters and epidemics. Young people living in situations such as these are particularly vulnerable to mental distress and illness. . Fortunately, there is a growing recognition of the importance of helping young people build mental resilience, from the earliest ages, in order to cope with the challenges of today’s world. Evidence is growing that promoting and protecting adolescent health brings benefits not just to adolescents’ health, both in the short- and the long-term, but also to economies and society, with healthy young adults able to make greater contributions to the workforce, their families and communities and society as a whole. . Prevention begins with being aware of and understanding the early warning signs and symptoms of mental illness. Parents and teachers can help build life skills of children and adolescents to help them cope with everyday challenges at home and at school. Psychosocial support can be provided in schools and other community settings and of course training for health workers to enable them to detect and manage mental health disorders can be put in place, improved or expanded. . It all starts with #awareness and having some personal #lifeskills that support #resilience // #yogatherapy is that. We, young people and the caregivers of the young people who shape our next generation.
Did you know that something as simple as sharing your hopes and dreams can have a deep impact on your marriage? In today's blog, I (Danielle) share how Russ does a really good job at honoring my dreams. Blog link in bio. 📷: first7years
If you want to become healthy, you have to surround yourself with a group of people that are getting healthy, and you have to be connected to a community that is doing what you want to do. - Dr Henry Cloud
