    Conquering Phoenicia, NY

    Awhile back I visited Phoenicia, NY.  We had found a small AirBNB right on the corner of Main Street, and it was an amazing trip. Phoenicia is a small town in New York with a population of less than 400 people. There’s actually quite a bit to do in Phoenicia, NY, but this blog article is meant to kind of document my time there. Where is Phoenicia, NY? Phoenicia is about two hours outside of…

    What Are The Health Benefits Of Yoga?

    Years ago, I tried yoga for the first time. Like many people, I was really skeptical as to whether or not it would actually do anything for me. As it turns out, there are some pretty unbelievable health benefits of yoga. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t give yoga a chance because they don’t have a solid understanding of what it is. In fact, before I tried yoga, I had only ever heard people say…

    Effective Communication In Relationships

    Effective communication in relationships isn’t easy to come by. A lack of communication is a very common barrier to a lot of relationships. I think part of the problem, honestly, is that people don’t know how to talk about their feelings. It’s difficult, so they make fun of it, and that influences a lot of other people to do the same. Effective communication in relationships isn’t about sitting down every night and having a heart-felt…

    Dealing With Lost Motivation

    Have you lost motivation? It happens to the best of us. Motivation can absolutely fluctuate – throughout the day, week, year, or even throughout your life. This is something that becomes very apparent when you consider that some people are easily motivated while others need to put in quite a bit of work for just a tiny bit of motivation. Especially if you’re suffering from mental health disorders, motivation doesn’t always come naturally. The concept…

    Who’s It All For?

    The blog has been up for awhile now, but only in the past few months did I start adding content. As I’ve started to publish more and more on my platform, I’m finding more areas for clarification. In terms of the platform in itself, I want to address who it’s for. In this post I’m sharing a little about myself and my own struggles, as well as addressing some of the “underground depths” of the…

    Managing Anticipatory Anxiety

    Suffering from anxiety isn’t easy, especially when it’s anticipatory anxiety. I remember years ago I heard the term “anticipatory anxiety” for the first time during a therapy session. I had no idea what it was, but it was a concept that made perfect sense. Just being aware of this concept and knowing what it was made a difference for me. Eventually, this meant that I was able to start to focus on recognizing it and…

    What is Internet Marketing?

    My interest in internet marketing really sparked at the age of fourteen. At the time, I knew something was different about me, mentally, but I really didn’t know what. I pretty much only knew that I was different and that whatever was going on would most likely interfere with my ability to live a “normal” lifestyle – which is how I ended up finding internet marketing. What is internet marketing? Internet marketing has a ton…

    Being Successful

    Success is not a one-size-fits-all thing, and I think that a lot of people really forget that. Often times we’re reminded of the outline society gives us for being successful: go to college, get a degree, marry, start a career, have kids, be financially sound by the time you’re 25 – 30, and then settle down. The problem is, this model implies that success is something you can only achieve while you’re in your early…

    What Does Exercise Do To Your Brain?

    We’re all aware of the most basic benefit of exercise: a more athletic body. It’s incredibly common to find someone who is exercising solely for the physical benefits – and there’s nothing wrong with that, for a lot of people that works and it’s enough. But I’ve personally found that it’s portrayed as this purely physical feat, and it’s not – exercise has a lot to do with your mentality, especially when you’re depressed. But…
