Take Charge of Your Life – Be Assertive!

You and I likely communicate with others every single day. Whether you’re talking to your family member, a coworker, or a salesperson, what you say and how you say it affect you and the person you are communicating with. An interaction can leave you feeling empty and angry, or empowered and understood.

What is CBT?

We recently posted a question on our  Facebook and Twitter accounts and the responses to that quiz piqued my interest. According to the results, many of our readers have heard of CBT but not many have actually tried it. That made me think that it might be useful to explain how CBT can help an individual – not just with mental health problems, but also in a variety of areas of your life.

The Constant Creeping of ANTs Will Wear Away the Stone

"The constant creeping of ANTs will wear away the stone." This old saying of unknown origin speaks to the incredible impact of even the smallest insects, over time, on the hardest surface. The constant grinding of small feet wears away even the most solid rock. Sadly, this is also true of our ANTs, those Automatic Negative Thoughts that constantly wear away at even the most confident self and contribute to challenges such as depression, social anxiety, and stress, anxiety and worry.
