Provided by Scherezade Ozwulo from Scherezade’s Labyrinth *trigger warning: mental health will be discussed not as judgment against the sufferer but as observation of the caretaker* Last night was rough. Really rough; so rough in fact that I still feel it the next day as I’m writing this post. Actually, last night as I was enduring, I was... Continue Reading →
Is there a connection between the two? I was actually amazed once I started to observe and analyze what happens when people cuss (me included).

Most of us encounter stressful situations daily and we all know how this makes us think and feel, but what are the biological implications? What is stress from a biological point of view? “Living in stress is like living in survival mode – they’re one and the same thing. A stressful situation is... Continue Reading →
I’ve approached this idea in other posts as well, but I believe it’s so important it deserves a new one.
