Why Positivity Can Be Learned

Wouldn’t it be nice to always – or mostly – have positive thoughts?

We have to live inside our heads a large part of our waking life. Granted, when we are working, playing, exercising, or socializing in any way — relating to family, friends, co-workers, etc…we are taken outside of ourselves, out of our heads, and our own mind-chatter is less present. And these activities are a great way to reduce our mind-chatter when we are feeling negative, and they can lead to a total turn-around too.

But when we are on our own we mostly live inside out heads. And often the inner life in there is not all pleasant. We spend a lot of time in anger, anxiety, strife, worry, fear, negativity, arguments, sadness, brooding, drama, etc…

Instead, we could be planning, dreaming, thinking creative thoughts, having realizations, insights, and breakthroughs, having thoughts of gratitude, enjoyment, fun. We could be experiencing the moment in awe, wonder, enthusiasm, excitement, and feeling waves of passion, ecstasy, and bliss. Yes, these are all valid ways of being, these are all attainable inner states.

Beautifying Your Inner Landscape

How do we attain such beautiful inner landscapes? Like outer landscapes, they can be cultivated. Some landscapes are born beautiful. Others need a little cultivation.

How Do We Cultivate a Positive Inner Terrain

How do we cultivate a positive inner terrain? Well, the first and last thing I’m going to tell you is that it comes down to “faith”. But I’ll tell you a lot of other things in between that can also help you to think positively, and that will also help to build your faith in life.

Positive Thinking is just a Habit

Positive Thinking is just a habit. It is not rocket science. It is not mumbo jumbo. It is not magic, spiritual, religious or anti-religious. It is simply a habit, that anyone can cultivate. We are all thinking all the time. It might as well be a positive experience!

The Inner Terrain of the Mind

We are all creatures of habit. Our brain is made up of synapses that are formed through our activities. The more we do something, the stronger the synapse becomes, allowing us to do it better, easier, more often, and with more enjoyment. This creates a habit. When we take conscious steps to break a habit, and we stop the actions, the synapses slowly dissolve and the habit is broken.

How to Cultivate New Habits

The doing of the habit, the action itself, is the strongest thing we can do in creating a new habit. Thinking about changing our habit, planning to change it, reading about how to change it — these can all be helpful, but nowhere near as powerful to make real changes as actually doing the habit we want to start. (Or not doing the habit we want to quit).

This is a terrifically important thing to understand on a deep level. If you want to think positively, start thinking positive thoughts. Think one right now. “I am OK”. (for instance)..

Journal Exercise – Developing A New Synapse

Fill in the blank with the best believable thing you can think about yourself: “I am __________”.

Or, if you can’t think something positive about yourself just yet, start with thinking something positive about someone else. “Jim is OK”. “Mom is doing great”. “Carrie is a wonderful friend”. Now its your turn:

“______________ is ________________________________”

Now, you’ve established a new synapse in your brain’s inner-talk landscape. You’ll strengthen this synapse with repetition throughout the day of similar positive thoughts. You’ll add many more soon.

I want you to write down as many positive thoughts as you can. Don’t worry about whether or not they feel true to you just yet. If you write them now, at some point they will pop back in to your head as genuine positive thoughts.

Here are some of my positive thoughts that I seem to be able to dredge up even in the darkest times…

I am good
I am full of love
I want the best for all people
I love my children/ family
I am grateful for my health

Now, write down in your journal as many positive thoughts as you can…

Negative Thinking is Just a Habit

Negative thinking is just a habit! It is not who you are. It is not a reflection of any defect in you. It is simply a habit.

Our brain is a chemical factory manufacturing our emotions. When we feel a certain emotion a lot, our brain manufactures a lot of the chemical that communicates that emotion to your body. When that chemical floods your body and is picked up at receptor sites, a lot, then the body produces more receptors for that chemical. This creates a chemical addiction to that emotion.

To start out with in life, 90% of our receptor cells are joy receptors. We are coded for joy.

Like synapses, receptors increase with use, and dissolve with lack of use.

Habits take 21 days to create.

For 21 days, come up with your own joy-enhancing program including positive thinking. Or follow mine below.

Here is my idea of a 21-day-positive-program:

My 21-Days to Positivity Program

For 21 Days…
- Do something you love each day.
- Make a list of positive thoughts each morning.
- Start the day doing the thing you love best for an hour.
- Exercise for an hour each day.
- Eat a big salad each day.
- Have some fruit each day.
- Spend some time alone in thought, contemplation, meditation, or prayer each day.
- End each day with a list of things you are grateful for.

You can alter it for your lifestyle preferences, your unique personality, and your beliefs. Be creative.

Pitfalls to Positive Thoughts

Some things to watch out for…

Here are some long-term habits that can sabotage positive thinking:

- over-use of sarcasm or cynicism
We might think we’re being witty, but the sarcastic or cynical attitude is addictive and can derail positive thinking. Some people are more cynical than others, and that might be your nature. I think you can find a balance in which you can be yourself and still enjoy your thought-life. A sense of humor is very helpful to this personality type.

- criticism of others
We might spend a lot of time thinking about the flaws of others. This can be highly habit forming, consuming many a life. Maybe this keeps our mind off our own problems. Often it is a way to avoid facing our own issues. It is however not conducive to positive thinking. Criticizing or blaming others keeps us stuck and keeps us from growing through actually facing our own issues.

- self-criticism
We can get really caught up in thinking about our own flaws, problems, and issues. Through our habit-forming brain and its synapses and our habit-forming body and its receptors for emotion-chemicals, we can turn this self-criticism in to a depressing habit. Start finding and creating the good in yourself!

- doubt
I think humans have a lot of faith naturally, in each other, in themselves, in this place we live in called reality, the world, or The Universe. Babies and small children have this kind of total faith. Bad experiences can cause us to start doubting ourselves and others. This is where faith becomes a necessity to keep us from this positivity-draining emotion of doubt.

- blame
A lot of us form the habit of blaming others. This is a nice way to avoid dealing with our own problems. But the mind-chatter of blaming covers up any possibility of positive thinking the same way pollution covers up the blue sky. Blaming also keeps us from growing. You can stagnate for years with this mechanism.

- guilt and shame
Feeling ashamed or guilty as a long-term habitual mind-set gets your energy so far down that positive thinking can be quite elusive. A little guilt or shame can be a good catalyst for change. But hanging on to an emotion like this as a long-term habit can’t be very helpful. Lighten up on yourself. Let it go.

8 Practices that lead to Positive Thinking

1. A Good Start:

Start each day off with positive thinking, through a prayer of gratitude, meditation, journaling, or making a list of things your are thankful for.

2. Affirmations:

You don’t have to do these now, but whenever you choose. It could be when you need to drum up some positive thoughts. Or it could be when you are feeling really happy and want to capture and expand this feeling in to more of your life!

…Make a list of positive affirmations, things you like about yourself, your immediate family members, and others you interact with regularly.

…Make a list of things affirming your faith in the Universe…I am loved, My greatest good along with the greatest good of all is always being met, everything works together for the good, there are not very many real emergencies, etc…

…Make a list of affirmations of things you love….I love life, I love people, I love my family, etc…

…Make a list of things you enjoy….I enjoy going out with a good friend, I enjoy walks in nature, I enjoy playing with my kids, etc….

…Make a list of things you want. Now make a list converting each of these things in to an affirmation, as though you already have it, or its already on its way.

These are all the types of things we think about, and by doing affirmations on paper, you are programming your brain to actually start thinking about things in a positive light.

3. Discipline:

“You can not afford the luxury of a negative thought”. Since thoughts are habits, one negative one can snowball in to a totally negative mind-state. If you know the thoughts that set you off, you can banish them the moment they set in. I tell myself, I feel pretty good right now, and I deserve to keep feeling good, so I would rather not think that thought. Sometimes it doesn’t go away right away, but I just don’t give it any energy, and so it goes eventually.

You know the old Indian story about the Grandfather who tells his Grandson about a battle going on inside him between two wolves, one who is greedy, frightened, and angry, and one who is kind, peaceful, and loving. “Which one will win?” asks the Grandson. And his Grandfather answers: “The one I feed”.

4. Prayer:

You can not be too negative when you are talking to the Creator of the Universes. It tends to bring out the best in us. And positive mind-states will come upon us sooner or later as a result of prayer.

5. Meditation:

Sitting or lying and focusing on our breathing for 5-15 minutes, or longer, we can just watch our thoughts and observe them without judging them. It is as though we are a third party outside of our mind, just noticing what is going on there.

6. Doing What We Love:

Doing what we love will make us happy, and when we’re happy our thoughts are positive. If possible, make a career of the thing you love doing. Otherwise, spend an hour a day doing what you love, – ideally the first hour. You’ll find yourself thinking more positively automatically.

7. Loving What We Do:

When we put our full attention and effort on something, we can’t help but love it. So, whatever we find ourselves doing in life, do it without fear, and with all the caring we can muster. Positive thoughts will automatically follow.

8. Faith, The Final Frontier:

After practicing all kinds of things for positive thinking, I wound up realizing that my missing link was faith. I realized that I had stopped having faith. I don’t know when it happened. I’m all for personal religious experience vs. church, but I guess one of the risks of being away from association with other religionists is that you can forget your faith. I was still praying. Still giving thanks. But I had purposely thrown myself in to matters of material living because I have a tendency to keep my head in the clouds otherwise.

For a while I was so worried about business it was starting to affect my health and sanity. One day during this long period of struggle and strife I suddenly realized that I was not having faith. The idea hit me like a ton of bricks. Wow, I can’t believe that I forgot to have faith!

And suddenly my faith came pouring back in to me. Of course everything is going to be OK. Of course everything is happening in perfect divine order. And of course there is nothing to fear. I am taken care of, I am loved, I am receiving exactly the lessons I need, there is nothing I can’t handle, I am part of the divine plan in which the greatest good of all beings is being taken in to consideration.

And by thinking these types of thoughts we activate something that makes it so.

I think that I had faith before, but not “living faith”. “Faith” can be a noun, something that you possess. But “living faith” is active, a verb.

I am of no particular religious persuasion. But I am interested in all religions. I think that no matter what religious or spiritual practices we have, that we can all access faith. We can all believe in a higher power or our own higher power. This is faith. Knowing that it is not just us in control of our life. That we can ask for help, that we can receive help, that we are loved and cared for, that the Universe is on our side. And being open to this help, this love. And trusting it.

I think most people have had an experience of a benevolent “presence”. Or they have had fleeting glimpses of some power outside of themselves helping and affecting their lives.

If not a “believer” in a higher power outside of ourselves, perhaps one could imagine a Unified Consciousness, in which all humans are joined as One. This Consciousness could be made of Love, and one could have faith in this greater Oneness of humanity.

This article looks into a slightly taboo but interesting topic, why do people see penis enlargement as an untrustworthy field when breast enlargement is so popular? We examine some of the different penis enlargement techniques as well as how the results are attained.

Attaining permanent penis growth has been a fascination of the male populace for centuries, yet despite clear advancements in science – namely in the creation of traction devices – it is still considered a myth.

The main problem lies in the number of fake products that are infiltrating the market. Notably remembered more for its failings than for its rising recognition by medical officials, penis enlargement is coloured by many unreliable sources.

However, there are a number of penis enlargement devices on the market that have the clinically backing, proof and recognition for being credible devices.

Take the traction device developed by SizeGenetics.

Made from medical type 1 materials, the SizeGenetics device has been featured in GQ magazine; has been tried by Channel 4′s Tim Shaw and is medically endorsed by a number of leading health specialists. And the conclusion that all these sources have come to?

That the penis enlargement is possible, and that SizeGenetics has proved this time and time again..

GQ Magazine

Impressed by SizeGenetics many clinical studies and medical endorsements, feature writer for GQ magazine James Mullinger decided to give the device a try.

Testing it for 4 months, James achieved a growth of half an inch in length, an increase that he went on to report in the May 2008 issue of GQ magazine.

GQ Magazine absolutely praised the SizeGenetics device, and the article writer only stopped his penile training due to concerns of getting too big:

“It just grows and grows. The device clearly works but I’m not sure I want it to continue. There’s only so much a woman can take and I’m wary of getting addicted to the growth.” Jame Mullinger, GQ Magazine.

Yet this was no ordinary feature.

Receiving such as mainstream endorsement was truly a testament to the ligtimacy of penis devices as a treatment for enlarging the penis.

Channel 4

Just one year later in May 2009, Channel 4 reporter Tim Shaw decided to ask the question of: is natural penis enlargement possible?

Experimenting with a number of penis enlargement methods including the SizeGenetics device, the results Tim acquired were shocking.

Taking a ‘before’ and ‘after’ cast of his penis, within 2 weeks of trying penis enlargement, Tim managed to acquire a massive 8 inch penis. Further proof that credible penis enlargement devices do exist and that they do work.

Medical endorsements

With the backing of two well-respected media sources, the SizeGenetics device is not only endorsed by the media, but its influence also extends into the medical field too.

Supported by numerous clinical studies, the SizeGenetics device is endorsed by over 13 doctors and specialists across the industry.

“SizeGenetics™ is the only device I can confidently recommend as I know the device is made 100% from medical grade components and is therefore safe.” – Dr Finn Worm Knudsen M.D, Specialist in Plastic Surgery

Awarded the European CE mark of approval, this type 1 medical device has been clinically proven to increase penis length and width by 30% as well as being a treatment for peyronies disease.

You can read more indepth details on the medical communities backing of penis enlargement.

The Results

To date the SizeGenetics device has helped over 13,000 customers to attain permanent penis enlargement and the results of their successes with this device are clearly demonstrated on their website.

To further remove the myth surrounding penis enlargement devices, they have gone beyond traditional written penis enlargement testimonials and have provided a visual demonstration of their devices credibility.

Helping individuals to increase their penis length by 2-3 inches in 24 weeks, their ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots of their customers’ penises remove any doubt that penis enlargement is attainable.

What is the right thing I need to do to bring forth my desires?

What actions do I need to take Now?

Am I doing the right thing or the wrong thing?

These are the questions that most of us are constantly asking ourselves in our minds. Most of the time, we are asking unconsciously.

We are constantly judging what we are doing, because we are afraid of making mistakes. Let me now show you how to choose the right action that will lead you to your ultimate goals.

First of all, let’s discuss…

The root of all procrastination.

Very often, people tell me “I have studied all the theories of success and read all the self improvement books, but I still don’t know what to do.”

Then they end up doing nothing, and getting no results.

No matter how many books you read, how many tapes you listen to, and how many seminars you attend, if you don’t take any action, you won’t have any result. Action creates result. You can’t change this fact.

Inaction leads to endless procrastination, and ultimately leads to failure.

You must understand that no matter how bad the situation is, you can always take some action to improve it right now, even for just a little improvement. If you can’t imagine how to make 1 million dollars, just make a commitment to make 100 dollars first. You might have heard of this phase CANI, It represents constant-and-never-ending-improvement. Success is a journey, not a destination. This journey is about improvement. As long as you are making some kind of improvement, you are leading to success.

Now you know you need to take some kind of action,

then…

What is the right action?

The answer is to ask your intuition. Your intuition will never fool you, because it is a message from Higher Intelligence. Your intuition always knows what is right and what is wrong.

Do you remember I said that feelings and emotions were the language of the universe? They are also the messages from the higher intelligence of the universe. When you feel a positive emotion, the universe is telling you that you are doing well, keep on doing it; when you are receiving a negative emotion, the universe is warning you that you are not aligned with your ultimate purpose, or life mission. You need to correct your action. This is the way the universe communicates with you.

Before taking any action, ask yourself, “What feeling will it make me feel once I have accomplished this action?”

Most of the time, your intuition will give you immediate feedback; you either receive a positive or a negative emotion.

Listen to your intuition, and do what makes you feel good, don’t worry about making mistakes, because…

Everything is in its divine order

One of the most stubborn road blocks to success is fear of failure, or fear of making mistakes.

To completely remove this road block, you must accept a belief that everything is in divine order.

Look back over your life of the past 10 years. Did you make any mistakes? Sure you did, but without those mistakes, would you have the life you are living now? If you look deeply, you will find that those mistakes have inevitably created some coincidence that has led to your present life. There is always a connection between the things that are happening in your life. The mistakes were part of your life journey that could not have been missed, so why did you worry at that time?

After my university entrance examination, I did not get a chance to join an old name university that I loved very much. Most people that knew me felt sorry for me, but I did not care, I joined the university of my second choice. A month after joining that university, I was offered a scholarship to study abroad in a much better university than my first choice university. Best of all, I did not spend a single dime on my tertiary education; even my everyday spending was covered by that scholarship. I would never have had this chance if I had joined my first choice university. I believe every thing is in its divine order, in my life nothing ever goes wrong.

If you want more of this kind of coincidence happen in your life, repeat this everyday when you feel doubt :

“Everything is in its divine order, in my life, nothing ever goes wrong”

To sum up, you need to make a small improvement everyday. Before taking any action, think of the feelings it will bring to you, and make the right choice based on your feelings. Then just do it, and believe you are doing the right thing because everything is in divine order.

Building your self esteem and confidence will help you achieve greater success when engaging in cognitive behavior techniques. You can begin to tackle the fears that are at the root of your social phobia through imagery desensitization and Positive-Thought-Redirection™.

It´s probably asking too much to just jump head first into confronting the situation you most fear. It makes more sense to approach conquering your fears in a step by step process.

One of those situations can be giving a presentation in front of others, that´s what´s holding you back from seeking a promotion at work. You can desensitize yourself to this fear and work to conquer it.

Here is an example of a step-by-step approach to image desensitization:

1. Break down the ability to give a presentation into steps. These steps might include:

a. sitting with a small group of people for 10 minutes

b. sitting with a small group of people for a longer period

c. sitting in a large group for 10 minutes, then a longer period such as an hour.

d. introducing comments while sitting with this group of people

e. giving a short, 1 minute presentation in front of friends

f. giving a short, one minute presentation in front of a small group and then a larger group of people

g. building up that presentation into 5, then 10, then 15 minutes etc…

h. giving that presentation in front of a large group for 5, 10, 15 minutes.

2. Once you think about the steps involved in achieving your goal and creating your list, it is time to imagine in your mind the situation for each component. Place yourself in the situation in your mind for each step and work through it and use positive thought redirection to desensitize yourself to the anxiety you feel.

3. After you have desensitized yourself in your mind, it is time to practice the steps in real life, with real people. Often, explaining your problem to your boss and explaining the steps you will be undertaking is met with both understanding and the offer of help.

If your work situation cannot accommodate this real life desensitization practice, try to duplicate the situation on your own time, using acquaintances and other people you know. This is where being a member of a support group could come in handy. If public speaking is your fear, try taking a class in it, it is a good place to work on desensitization and is safer environment than your work place.

For social phobia sufferers, often the most crucial step in resolving their problems or effectuating a recovery is real life desensitization. An important component to real life desensitization is the relaxation techniques and countering mistaken mental beliefs that helps in the desensitization process. A great way to combat those troublesome beliefs that everyone will think you are stupid, weird, awkward, or just plain dumb is Positive-Thought-Redirection™.

Positive-Thought-Redirection™ entails stopping and substituting positive thoughts for negative or intrusive thoughts. As negative thoughts pop up during your social interactions, whether in your mind with image desensitization or in real life exposure situations you issue a “stop” command.

The goal is to stop that negative, over exaggerated or inaccurate thought in its tracks. You then want to substitute a more positive thought for the one you just stopped. When using this technique it´s best to have a prepared list of positive thoughts that you can build yourself up with. By doing the thinking and preparation beforehand, you want add to the stress of the situation by having to redirect your thoughts unassisted at the spur of the moment.

Practicing positive thought redirection along with image desensitization will greatly assist you in combating your fears.

As you build up your self esteem, realize that you can confront the situations you fear and survive and even thrive you will see your assertiveness and confidence grow. Don´t let your social phobia stand in the way of the life you want any longer.

The panic disorder is in the category of anxiety disorders, disorders that are based on fear and it can be treated with hypnosis London as well as with the help of hypnotherapy London. The panic disorder is characterized by sudden and violent attacks of intense fear, crises which occur in a totally unpredictable way.

People with panic disorder generally develop strong anxiety between attacks, wondering when and how the next will occur.

The panic disorder often leads to the creation of phobias or agoraphobia, by association between a crisis and the circumstances of the crisis, or between the crisis and an object present during the crisis. For example, a person who has a panic attack in a lift is likely to create a phobia of elevators and will start to avoid them whenever possible. All these can be treated with the help of Hypnotherapy London.

Compared to other anxiety disorders, the main things that characterize the panic disorder are the intensity of sensations, the sudden crisis in their limited time, typically approximately ten minutes, and the fact they are unpredictable.

The hypnotherapy London curing model

In panic disorder, fear is caused by one or more unconscious processes. These processes are active psychic phenomena of self-generating fear. They are active only for brief moments, thus causing fear of great intensity.

These processes are reactivating an imprint of memory, a memory, which is associated with fear. Reactivation of memory causes the reactivation of unconscious fear.

Like all mental processes, they have been created at a particular time in response to a particular situation. In the context of this situation, they were useful to the patient. Indeed, fear is useful, it serves to protect us from danger, whether real or imagined.
What happens in case of panic disorder is that the original situation has changed, the threat has disappeared, but the process remained. They should have stopped it happened something that has prevented the normal shutdown process.

Treating Panic Attacks with Hypnotherapy London
The principle of treatment by hypnotherapy London is to access these unconscious processes, and that only hypnosis can do, and then make sure they stop.

There are various methods to stop unconscious processes with the help of hypnotherapy London. Often, the mere awareness of the causes sufficient to stop the process, but sometimes it is not sufficient and some specific techniques must be implemented.

The treatment begins with an exploration under hypnosis London to understand the mechanism of maintenance of anxiety, why the activation process does not stop, how is it they continue to be active while the situation that has created has disappeared, sometimes for very long. Then, based on these mechanisms maintain updated in the exploration phase, some changes are introduced into the patient’s mental functioning, changes that will lead to the arrest of these processes.

This second phase of hypnotherapy London is essentially a restructuring of certain patterns memorial in order to remove the association between memory and emotion. This can all happen by hypnosis London and you can be completely treated for your panic attacks this way.

Because most anxiety disorders do not respond quickly to psychological therapies that focus on a person’s emotional past, they are generally thought of as difficult to overcome. For the most part, this reputation is not deserved. Psychological therapies that desensitize a person to feared situations or that teach a person how to recognize and cope with anxious thoughts and feelings have proven effective against most anxiety disorders. Many people find that their anxiety symptoms are significantly eased without extensive talk therapy.

However, unlike the other anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder typically does require treatment focusing on a person’s emotional past. This is not to say that therapies that simply desensitize a person or that teach a person how to defuse anxious thoughts have no place in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. They do. In fact, they usually are important parts of such therapy. Learning to quell intense anxiety generally makes people with post-traumatic stress disorder better able to handle talking with their therapists about trauma in their pasts.

BEHAVIOR THERAPY

Behavior therapies help people modify their behavior. Whatever benefits accrue — one example would be an overall easing of anxiety; another could be a new way of interpreting formerly anxiety-provoking situations — are understood to be a direct or indirect result of the behavior modification. Today, the most commonly practiced behavior therapies are exposure therapy and relaxation training.

COGNITIVE THERAPY

The theory behind cognitive therapy is that highly anxious people have cognitive habits that may be hidden to them but that are causing their pathological anxiety. An example would be an anxious person who constantly assumes that the worst is about to happen. This basic assumption can become so pervasive that it is accepted as normal by the person and not easily identified as the source of anxiety.

Anxiety is a problem that everyone in general struggles with in some way, shape, or form. For those of us on this site, however, it tends to be more of a problem than others. An effective way of
reducing anxiety is to engage in regular exercise. A study conducted by Landers and Pettruzello examined the results of twenty-seven narrative reviews that had occurred between 1960 and 1991. Of
these twenty-seven reviews, “…81% of them the authors had concluded that physical activity/fitness was related to anxiety reduction following exercise and there was little or no conflicting data presented in these reviews” (Landers, 1997). For the remaining cases, Landers and Pettruzello found that the findings were supportive of exercise’s anxiety-reducing effects. None of the cases reviewed found a non-existent relationship.

For me, personally, exercise has brought about many positive effects. The most obvious effect is that it, of course, reduces anxiety. I have taken several other steps in my life to reduce anxiety, so I
am really not sure to what extent exercise has helped, although I have no doubt that it has indeed helped. Aside from reducing anxiety, regular exercise encourages a positive mood, increased self-confidence, and increased self-esteem. Aside from this, it increases your energy and allows for healthier aging. I have found that the key to exercising is making the exercise enjoyable; if something is enjoyable, one will want to engage it in more often, and it will not provoke additional anxiety. My current exercise routine is to play basketball for thirty minutes three times per week, and also weight lift at least once, possibly twice if I have the time. I also do some running, and tend to increase the amounts of exercise as the amount of time I have increases with the end of the college semester. Everybody’s exercise routines will vary; the key to the whole thing is to figure out what one enjoys and engage in that on a consistent basis. Sometimes, bringing a friend a long, taking a class, or exercising in groups can be more motivating for those who have trouble motivating themselves, and besides that, this is also a great time to step out of one’s anxious shell and make some friends!
How much exercise is recommended? Most experts recommend about four to five hours per day. Just kidding! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adults should get

“about 2 hours and 30 minutes (150 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity (i.e., brisk walking) every week and [engage in] muscle-strengthening activities on 2 or more days a week that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms)(2008).”

Adults may modify this number to seventy-five minutes of vigorous aerobic activity (i.e., jogging or running), and two muscle-strengthening activities working all major muscle groups.
Alternatively, adults can mix-and-match moderate and vigorous activity, combined with the recommended level of muscle strengthening. For maximum effectiveness, adults should engage in five
hours of moderate-intensity exercise, or two-and-a-half hours of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, combined with the recommendation for muscle-strengthening. Finally, the CDC states that exercise is
effective so long as it is used a minimum of ten minutes per session, which helps out those of us who live very hectic lifestyles.

The positive effects of exercise obviously far outweigh the possible negative drawback of injury. The main point to keep in mind is to find a way to keep yourself motivated and engaged in regular exercise that you enjoy! What are you waiting for? Get out there and exercise!

The question is which one comes first- depression or panic attacks? Is there even a relationship between these two? Will there be strong enough evidence to establish the ties between them?

Researchers believe that there really is a relationship between these two conditions. However, there is varying theories as to what triggers what or which one comes first. Thus, there are different schools of belief regarding this issue. This is because there are many people who have different experiences in relation to panic attacks and depression.

The following are the most common theories and findings in regards to the 2 conditions:

According to one of the research groups, it was proven that those people who have chronic pain problems usually pass a bout of depression after the attacks happen. These people easily get tired after undergoing a panic attack. Exhaustion is understandable because their bodies are already weak due to the chronic pain disorder. After the attack, they might be tired enough to handle anything at all. Depression easily sets in.

Some people also report to have felt depression right after the panic attacks happened. They also seemed to feel relieved of the depression once they would take their medications to calm them down during panic attacks.

Agoraphobia is a medical condition wherein a person avoids certain activities that might possibly lead them to have panic attacks. Those who have the same condition tend to seclude themselves away from crowds and other social activities so as not to risk having an attack around many people.

Another group of people also insists that depression comes first before panic attacks. Some people claim that because of intense depression, panic attacks may eventually occur. Unfortunately, there are people who experience the panic attacks and depression simultaneously. This usually happens when the anxiety level of the person is so high that the attack also sparks. People who experience this are those who are faced with many problems in life but do not know how to handle them.

Panic disorder also contributes to the vulnerability of one individual to go into panic attacks. The factors that make an individual vulnerable are cold, depression, hangover, drowsiness, and many more factors. These bodily perceptions can be easily felt by these people because they are highly attuned to their body.

The last school of thought would be the theory that there is no relationship at all between panic attacks and depression.

Thus, it does not matter which condition comes first- whether the panic attacks or depression. There are various medicines and treatment that can slowly cure or stop the odds of having panic attacks. The patient though has to support the medicine by staying healthy and positive.

If you suffer from panic or anxiety disorder, I understand what you are going through. I’ve been suffering with these problems for years and have only now begun to understand how to control this disorder. I’ve used prescription medications, some have worked and others haven’t. But, the reason that I’m writing this article is to tell you that you can learn to take control of your mind and body again without the assistance of prescription meds, which are often addictive.

To understand how to control your panic attacks, it’s first necessary to understand what causes them. Seemingly, out of no where you are struck with an indescribable fear that you cannot control. Often these attacks are mistaken for heart attacks or other life threatening conditions. To control these attacks you have to learn to do two things:

1. Recognize that you are having a panic attack and not a heart attack.
2. Recognize what triggers this fear.

Learning to recognize what triggers your fear is the first step in taking control. This is difficult to do when it seems like you get attacks in the middle of no where and in random situations. But if you will start to document, in a diary of sorts, every thing that happens when you have an attack, you will learn to see a pattern of behaviors and situations that are common with each attack.

For example, it may seem random that you had an attack in the middle of your grocery shopping yesterday. But there are things you should document about this occurrence. Was the store crowded? Did you have a bad day at work? Were you worried about how much the cost of food has gone up? Did you hear too many children screaming, crying, or shouting? What time of day did this happen? What day of the month did it happen? Anything and everything you can remember about the situation should be written down so that you can later look for patterns.

You may discover that around the same time of the month you are more prone to these attacks. If you are a female, this could lead to an understanding that around ovulation times in your cycles generates a hormone surge in your body that can trigger your attacks.

You may also find that the noise of children at the end of a day makes you nervous and anxious enough to trigger an attack. Or you may find that you are stressing out about your financial situation more than you ever realized.

Once you can determine a pattern of behaviors and situations that link your attacks together, you can then take steps necessary to control the level of anxiety you experience before it becomes to great and leads to a full blown attack.

Secondly, you have to learn to realize that you are having an panic attack and not something else. The reason for this is, when you believe that you are dying, your anxiety only increases. This makes it incredibly difficult to return to normalcy. Also, carrying around the fear of having an attack can lead to greater anxiety which in turn leads to an attack itself.

You must learn to control your fears and realize when you need to step away from a situation to regain control of your mind. Once you are able to do this, you will find that your reliance on drugs and other therapies can be eliminated or decreased significantly. Panic disorder does not have to control your life.
