#ClimateCrisis #Anxiety #MentalHealth #SelfCare

🧵 [1/7]
Whether you witness it from your window or from your computer, the #ClimateCrisis can feel overwhelming.

Although the most common phrase to describe this is ‘climate anxiety’, @Carolinehickma from @ClimatePsychol thinks we should be saying ‘climate empathy’ instead.

Being ‘climate empathetic’ is actually a good thing.

Being empathetic with the Earth means we understand the problem and want to help. It can drive us to take action. It's esp. useful when a critical mass of people is needed to have an impact, like in a campaign group.

Is your #meditation practice checking a ✅ or creating impact?🚀

I took @naval’s advice 1 year ago and listened to my thoughts. My life changed a lot...

thread🧵: 1/n #success #meditation @tferriss @ScottAdamsSays
Oct. 14, 2021: advice from @naval on @tferriss podcast:

Sit for 60 mins. a day, for at least 60 days in a row. Let yr mind do its thing.

"When you do that for at least 60 days, my experience has been that you kind of clear out your mental inbox..." 2/n…
For 60 mins, "whatever your mind wants to do, you just let it do. If it wants to talk, you let it talk. If he wants to fight, you let it fight. If it wants to be quiet, you let it be quiet." @naval.

If you do this, you clear out "all the craziness that was going on." 3/n

This thread is regarding #GunRelatedCasualties:
As an #anarchist/#LibertarianSocialist/#LibrarySocialist I think the problem lies within the way in which we integrate others into our cultures and educate our own communities. A strong centralized or even weakly-associated
government always has a chance of making poor decisions and this keeps us in a regressive situation. The ratchet effect is clear indication of this in the US.

Mandating things won't change people's skewed internal perspectives. Yelling at them won't either or making them
pet projects on one issue. This is a communitarian situation. People must have conversations and reach an agreement. I am a strong proponent for direct democracy. If people have the right community-based care, rights to means, and access to assistance this person with

1. Climate anxiety: the climate crisis is even scarier from a child's perspective; 6 out of 10 say they feel betrayed by their governments.

40% of young people worldwide are hesitant to have children due to climate change.

Thread: How can you help?…

2. Recent research found that anxiety of the youth is related to perceived government inaction.

#climatecrisis #youth #anxiety #climateanxiety #mentalhealth #environment #nature #climatechange #ClimateAction…

3. A UNICEF report published last month provides some context to understand these perceptions of young people better.

The report found that approximately 1 billion children live in one of the 33 countries classified as "extremely high-risk.”…

This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

1/77: #Science and neutral reporting are increasingly being oppressed. This is only possible as we find ourselves in a continuous state of #fear. In this ⬇️thread⬇️Dr. Simon (follow him: explains how this could have happened and what the consequences are.
2/: If scientists and politicians had to display their sponsors publicly, those currently in the spotlight would most likely look like these astronauts, who are misleading the public by attributing doomsday potential to the virus. #ToTheMoon
3/: I am writing this thread as I am very annoyed that all 'conspiracy theories' are becoming a reality, and it seems like there are just a handful of people who are pulling strings. In my perception, it’s a setup with hardly any powerful antagonists.

Today is my last Friday before I become #faculty 🤯 and I wanted to take a second to reflect a little on my #postdoc experience. Spoiler alert: yes I grew a lot and met amazing people but no, postdocing wasn’t fun and I wouldn’t want to do that again. #PostdocLife 1/n
First the good - I learned and grew a lot during my postdoc and thanks to that, my career has shifted in exciting new directions. It also taught me not to be scared to try something new! Remember: PhD grads are really good at learning new stuff. #PostdocLife 2/n
What I learned cost me a lot though… being a #postdoc is by definition full of uncertainty and pressure: you don’t know where you’ll be living in 1-2yrs, funding insecurity for some, pressure to do great so you can land your next job, etc… #PostdocLife 3/n

Happy Saturday, beloved family! I hope your weekend has been off to an excellent start! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus text for today, comes to us from Romans chapter 8, which focuses on life in the Spirit.

In verse 1, we have THE blessed assurance from God, that there is indeed NO CONDEMNATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
To be “in Christ Jesus” means that He dwells within us, & us within Him. We are ONE.
So, by sending His own son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins, God made sure that there is NO CONDEMNATION for us.

Our focus today will be within 1st John , chapter 3. This chapter deals EXCLUSIVELY with our identities as children of God. We are encouraged to strive to be a people of ethical integrity & to live a life that is reflective of our spiritual identity.
In verse 20, we are reminded of the truth that God is actually GREATER THAN OUR HEART. People of God, this is a quite profound assertion! 🤯🤯🤯

1) 🇬🇧 The 8 steps of UK #LongCovid prevalence research in a nutshell - By an upset parent.
1. Child suffers disabling symptoms for over 12 months
2. GP says it is health #anxiety and standard blood tests show nothing wrong, so there can not be anything wrong.
3. #Parent has been
2) using Zoe app, but gives up logging symptoms after x months as they can't see the point anymore. No one believes they are sick anyway
4. Child has disabling symptoms for over 12 months
5. GP says children don't get #longcovid as the @govuk has told them this
3) for the last 18 months. Parent and child both dismissed as "anxious". #Child never sees a #paediatrician as GP dismisses them & paediatricians, therefore, don't see many kids with #longcovid.

#6VERSES from #THEQURAN to #HELP us through #ANXIETY
Accepting that you cannot control everything is a major key to managing anxiety, which can be done more easily with the understanding that God has a greater plan and that He (SWT) knows what is best for us. Image
Dhikr, prayer and meditation can help one feel calm. Image
Patience is difficult, but it is important. Combined with prayer and remembrance of Allah, patience will help you get through the tough times to see that the pieces that were once all up in the air fell into place. Image

I SO respect & appreciate @ZJAyres sharing this today. There is ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY nothing wrong with taking medication to improve your #mentalhealth . I used to be vehemently opposed to taking psychotropic medication…
because of stigma & my Christian upbringing. NOW, based on my own lived experiences & through seeking out EXTENSIVE knowledge in the #mentalhealth space, I have a VERY different view of #mentalhealth & medications than most followers of Christ do.
Here’s the thing. Often times, people NEED medication to bring back the levels of their brain chemicals to where it needs to be. And that’s totally OK. Everyone’s condition is a little bit different.

Have you noticed that Shandro and Dr. Hinshaw keep using the term “anxiety” in relation to their COVID reopening plan? Here is why this is inappropriate and stigmatizing: (1/8)
#COVID19AB #Anxiety #CovidIsNotOver
Anxiety is severe, persistent fear based on faulty cognitions or that is clearly in excess to the actual threat. Anxiety disorders are diagnosed based on the source of that fear (e.g. social situations) and degree of impairment (2/8)
With increasing mental health awareness driven by celebrities and professional athletes, like Ryan Reynolds and Naomi Osaka, more people have an awareness that Anxiety can be a chronic, often debilitating illness (3/8)

I feel you on this 💯. The reality is that there actually IS a lot that others can do to help alleviate mental health issues. For one, the societal stigma which surrounds mental health IS NOT the same for cancer. At all. What I’ve found is that a lot of the hopelessness that…
precedes suicide is heavily related to the ways in which society perceives the individual suffering from MH issues. The individual feels like a lost cause, because often times, society TELLS them that they are. They’re told they can’t work again because they’re unstable.
How do they then pay their mortgages, student loans? How do they LIVE????!! CAN’T have kids, because they’ll have kids with neurological disorders which will then be burden to society & the healthcare system. CAN’T adopt kids, because in America, people with MH issues just CAN’T!

Me: I have done all I can.

My anxiety: Really?

Me: Um, yes?

My anxiety: Have you though?

Me: Oh God, I haven't! I have to do more. So much more. RIGHT NOW.

My anxiety: You're welcome.
A small, gentle reminder: That I tweet & joke about what it feels like to have #anxiety.

I want to be honest & transparent about what it is like to live with mental illness.

This is not me asking for advice or comments. It's just one of the ways I cope.
Also, please consider that when someone tweets mental illness that they aren't asking for you to offer solutions or advice or commentary.

Often, we just want to be able to speak our own words about our experiences & maybe be heard.

Hausaufgabe meiner Psychologin:

In die Altstadt gehen, mindestens 20 Minuten durch gefüllte Straßen laufe, sich Zeit lassen, achtsam sein, anschließend in einem Café etwas trinken. Klingt cool, oder?

Was für die meisten Menschen wie ein normaler, schöner Nachmittag klingt
Bedeutet für mich maximalen Stress.

Bei dem Gedanken das zu planen, muss ich bereits beachten, in keine Panikgedanken zu verfallen.
An dem Tag selbst werde ich vor Anspannung kaum ansprechbar sein und in dem Moment in dem ich durch die Straßen gehe oder in einem Café
Sitze, werden in meinem Kopf Bilder und Szenarien ablaufen, die für viele surreal klingen mögen, für mich aber reale Angst und Panik bedeuten. Es kann passieren, dass ich 3x um das Café herumgehe, ehe ich mich traue, mich zu setzen, es kann auch passieren, daß

Has your child ever been anxious about going to the doctor, scared about a medical procedure, or seem traumatized afterward? This is the case for millions of children, and parents too. I’m so excited about upcoming release of my new book just for parents like you!
My new book, “Afraid of the Doctor: Every Parent’s Guide to Preventing and Managing Medical Trauma,” was co-authored with pediatric psychologist and medical trauma expert @MeghanMarsac

Visit & follow @AfraidoftheDr to pre-order and learn more

When parents (and health care providers!) understand medical trauma and learn strategies to reduce and even prevent it, they become empowered to better care for their child’s emotional and physical health. We believe this book is so timely considering the #COVID19 pandemic...

Another mass shooting, which means another day that I will have to watch people debate the “Guns kill people vs. People kill people” debate.

The debate, like so many others, misses the point so obviously that it’s difficult for me to stomach.
They will argue “Take the guns!”, while gun lovers call the people who pull the trigger, “mental”, or “bad crazy people” or “deranged”.

And the people who use these terms go unchecked.

“Mental people”, “nut jobs”, “animals”, “sick fucks”. These are some of the NICE ways of putting it. Yet as I watch it happen, people don’t bother to “check” or correct the ones who lack the awareness to use the right words. I finally realized why.
