10 Important Things About Anxiety Nobody Talks About

1. You can be social with anxiety. Many people love being around friends and family but still aren’t able to fully control the feelings of anxiety. They are put into a sort of stuck position of wanting to be alone but also around people.

2. You are hyper aware. Even if you don’t want to be, when you are in a state of panic your body forces you into a state of hyperawareness. anxiety560bf5cc1b00003000dfdeb0

3. It looks different for everyone. Some people are very extroverted about it and will verbally let you know. Others, it’s completely inside them and you would never know unless they told you.

4. You can feel guilty after. If you opted out of a group event, party or fun opportunity, after the anxiety wears off is when you can start feeling like you regret your choices.

5. Medication doesn’t always work. For many, they are misdiagnosed and given wrong medication that only worsen the effects. For some, they don’t even need pharmaceuticals, just time in nature and support people in their lives.

6. The fear of anxiety can sometimes cause it. When you are focusing all your energy on not being anxious, you are still feeling that emotion and creating it within you.

Anxiety7. It feels like it will never end. Trust yourself that it will. You are stronger than you know and if this isn’t your first time being anxious, then you know you can get through it.

8. Anxious people might have higher IQ’s and heightened sensitivities levels. A few studies have shown that people with anxious minds have also been linked to better IQ tests and having more empathy. Continue reading

Chuck Norris Calls Out Chemtrails, Accusing “Sky Criminals” Of Waging War on The Public

Chuck Norris calls chemtrails “sky criminals” in an op-ed examining different pieces of evidence to show there is global geoengineering.

In a World Net Daily editorial, this classic star speaks out against one of the most controversial subjects out there. This topic is immediately shut down by the many who couldn’t even fathom our government doing something like this, and if you’re in that position, get ready for some serious truth. 

Norris highlights one of the reasons for geoengineering in a 2003 National Center for Biotechnology Information abstract. It concludes that “aerosol immunization seems a promising method of vaccination,” He believes the US government probably already tested these kinds of methods on the population.

Chuck Norris, who I never thought would be defending the idea chemtrails, brings up some really great points. He speaking to the truth that even if what’s being sprayed isn’t that dangerous, why is it being sprayed in the first place? That’s something I’ve always tried to keep the focus on whenever I ever talk about chemtrails with people.

It is because people blindly defend something they don’t even understand is how these things get perpetrated. There is no conspiracy that there is some sort of chemical trail being sprayed in the sky that lasts hours and spreads across the sky. There is a fundamental difference between contrails and chemtrails.

Norris goes on to raise the question: “Over the past 13 years since the study, does anyone think it’s possible that such mass vaccinations or immunizations have occurred by air in trial locations in the U.S.?”  “How many plane-dropping chemical cocktails have already been sprayed around the world in the name of securing public health?” “Whatever the intent or justification, and whether or not the purpose is for mass vaccinations or some other devious plot, if you don’t believe there’s some smoke-screening in the sky trails above you, I have a London Bridge to sell you in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.”  Continue reading

This Virtual 3D Paintbrush Turns Your Room into A Canvas

This mind blowing drawing program is going to take your doodles to the next dimension. I found this video the other day and absolutely freaked out. Of course the first thing that came to my mind was you can draw yourself in a magical, light filled forest and actually walk through it?! 

Google just released The Tilt Brush as a game on the platform Steam for those who have a VR headset. For all the artists out there, this is a dream come true. The drawing style has a lot of brightness to it, like you’re painting with pure light. It looks quite magical and endless fun to use.maxresdefault

We need to use VR in a way that brings us together, instead of distract and isolate us. If this game and similar creative games can include multiple people simultaneously playing in a virtual world that requires teamwork and cooperation, then that is something worth being excited about. I’ve always loved video games; the atmosphere, the intractability and story lines always intrigued me.

As I’ve grown, I’ve really longed for something interactive, engaging and exciting that is more than just sitting at your computer alone. VR gives us the ability to literally transport our minds to a different world. When we can exist in that world together and create productively through VR then that is the perfect merging of realities!

For The First Time in 10 Years, Mercury is Going to Transit the Sun

On this coming Monday, May 9th, something spectacular is going to happen. This event only happens 13 times every century! For the first time in about a decade, we’re going to witness Mercury make a rare transit across the massive face of the Sun. A transit across the Sun is when a planet passes directly between the Sun and a superior planet and becomes visible against the solar disk. During a transit, the planet can be seen from Earth as a tiny black disk moving across the sun. sdovenustransit_007b363a451b83e04db5c510e130c0a8.nbcnews-fp-1200-800

This is an amazing experience to really see the massive size of the sun and what a planet looks like in front of it! This is something that won’t happen again until 2019 and then 2032. So make sure you’re watching!

This astronomical event is easier to watch than most. It’s viewable from most places on Earth, and unlike most cosmic events, this one lasts at least 7 hours to see! It’s easy to know where to look, just go to the light!

The transit is suppose to begin at around 7am EDT and will last all day. Depending on where you live, this is either in the middle of the day, or in the dead of night:

If you live around the Eastern Asia area, it will be in the middle of the night for you unfortunately!  Continue reading

9 Powerful Decision-Making Tips To Help Your Indecisiveness

Imagine that you are always directing your attention and energy in the best possible way. There is no limit to what you can achieve.

We constantly make tiny decisions. We can direct our attention in any direction we desire, in this moment.

Sadly, we humans make a lot of strange decisions. Evolution has not built us to make perfect choices all the time. Evolution built us to spread our DNA and conserve as much energy as possible. The keywords here are “conserve energy”. Our brain is not big compared to the rest of our body – it is only about 2% of our body mass – but it contributes to about 20% of our energy-use when resting [1]. To conserve energy we have evolved a lot of shortcuts in our thinking.

However, there are some tools that help us make more correct decisions. Few things in life can be done with absolute certainty, but you can significantly improve the probability of your decision being the right one. Here are 9 of the tools that can make your decisions, and your life, amazing:

1 – Begin with the end in mind

over-thinking-quote-girl-1024x1024-2z1nxttu7fckq2mr8qlpts

I was first introduced to this principle in the book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People [2].

One of the amazing capabilities of human beings is visualization. But it is a double-edged sword. You can visualize both what you want to happen and what you don’t want to happen. When you put a lot of sustained effort into the visions, they have a tendency to come true, both the good and the bad.

This is the essence of the law of attraction. We attract more of what we focus on.

“If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster.” – Stephen Covey

2 – The 80/20-Rule

The 80/20-rule, or Pareto’s Principle, states that 80% of our results come from 20% of our efforts.

Before you do something, ask yourself:

Studies Show Living Near The Sea Improves Your Mental Health

There’s a very important reason why we enjoy taking walks near the ocean. It’s not just a romantic getaway or a fun time at the beach that makes it so exciting. New research published in this month’s issue of Health & Place,  conducted a study that connected positive mental health with having a view of nature.

nature5This might be obvious to some, but living in natural spaces is how we are supposed to exist on this planet. When we are coexisting with nature, living in homes that don’t disturb the natural way of being and being able to actually live in harmony with the planet, then we can transform the mess of this planet. It doesn’t really make sense to pave cement all over the lush flora of the earth.

Researchers from the university of Canterbury in New Zealand and Michigan State University both looked at the difference between blue and green spaces. Blue spaces are areas that have large bodies of water, places like beaches. Green spaces are areas like parks or forests.

This information was gathered to assess anxiety and mood disorders. They took into account factors like age and gender to eventually find a correlation between people who had a view of nature and positive mental health. The study is interesting, because the blue spaces did much better then green because many of our green spaces are in cities and have concrete structures entangled within them. The green space does not have the same effect on your brain when it is full of man made structures.

To be completely surrounded in a forest or by the sea with out any man-made objects has a drastically positive effect on our mental wellbeing. We are not designed to sit in a computer chair for hours at a time in concrete buildings, we are built to move and live and close knit communities that are all connected.

Woman at the seaThis information from the study can help give us better insight on designing cities and incorporating nature into our man-made world. Fundamentally, we need to change the design of society to completely shift how we interact with the world and each other.

We should be able to exist in harmony with the planet and live sustainably without destroying it. It seems quite simple but this system has things like the oil, gas and large industries as a priority.

If you are able, go out and explore the beautiful world of nature. Stop by a park if you live in the city, go buy some plants to put around your house, and bring nature into your life. They purify the air and make you feel good to be in the space you’re in.
