The Dance/Movement Therapy

   Continuing the not-so-common types of therapies series, I’m writing a few words about the dance/movement therapy (also called dance movement psychotherapy in UK). “DMT (or DMP) is the psychotherapeutic use of movement and dance to support intellectual, emotional, and motor functions of the body. As a modality of the creative arts therapies, DMT looks at the correlation between movement and...

The Writing Therapy

   This is the form of therapy that we benefit the most, as bloggers. If we think about it, that’s why the writers write. They want to express what’s inside them and this eases their inner universe. The ideas or the pain get out and once the separation happened, the writers feel relieved.    A... Continue Reading →

What happens when you’re too tired?

   Frustrations. That’s what happens. The self control gets so challenged that it might not be useful anymore. And everything comes out. Everything. Even things that are not there. And you know what? When we get overwhelmed by frustrations, solutions don’t even matter anymore. It’s all a cocktail of anger, sadness and frustrations, each of... Continue Reading →

The Language of Emotions

   If you think about a particular emotion, how many words can you use to express it? How many words do you know to express a different side of an emotion?

Who’s in charge of YOU?

   Have you ever wondered from where do our thoughts and feelings come? I’m currently reading Incognito by David Eagleman and in the first half of this book I got the idea that somehow our conscious self is the last one to know about… everything. The underlying processes decide everything and we are informed about... Continue Reading →

UNIVERSAL GRAMMAR, SAY WHAT?!

Provided by Betul Erbasi from betulerbasi.com How are you?    English Wie geht es dir? German Nasılsın? Turkish  كيف حالك Arabic 你好嗎? Mandarin お元気ですか?

Build Your Confidence

   How many times you’ve stopped yourself from doing something just because you didn’t believe you can do it or that it is possible? People are not born with 100% confidence. That’s a mixture we develop in time and it’s vital for our success rate in life.    We do things without 100% confidence all... Continue Reading →

Is Social Anxiety a Habit?

   Don’t throw rotten tomatoes just because of the title. If we think about a habit, it’s nothing more than a strong neural path which have been developed and strengthened over the years. So over the years we developed a certain behavioural pattern we apply in social situations. But where does that behavioural pattern come... Continue Reading →

The scenarios from your mind

Your Emotions are in Your Way

   A severe negative emotion interferes with the way we see our future. It can be so bad that we forget emotions are temporary and in those moments, we strongly believe that we’ll be in that state the rest of our lives. How stupid does that sound? And still, it’s very true.    Having a... Continue Reading →

Your Emotion is Your Energy

   Each action we make involves some energy, but where is all that energy coming from? You surely noticed that we feel more energized when we do certain actions compared with others even though no additional energy came in.    It seems that whenever we like something, we somehow find more energy to invest in...

A Core Belief in action

- Situation: you planned a meeting with one of your friends and in the last moment that person called to cancel it because something came up; - Internal monologue: “What?
