I realized that there is still a lot to learn about blogging when I attended the 2014 Oakland Blogging Symposium. I’d be delighted to share with you some of my realizations while attending the sessions.

Blogging Takes Serious Effort

Successful blogs took years of hard work before they became what they are now. Dedication is the key to any successful endeavor. I realized that seasoned bloggers started as a novice like all of us. What differentiated them from the rest was their zest to continue improving their skills. Another factor is that they listened to what people want to read. In a fast-paced world, not everyone has the time to read leisurely. Seasoned bloggers studied how to hook people using their words.

Write Using Your Heart

Blogging can be a form of release for people. Way back, writers use blogging to publish their feelings about a particular topic or to chronicle their daily activities. I’ve realized that it’s better if blogging remains that way.

I have observed recent developments in cyberspace where businesspeople have been using blogs as a form of a marketing tool to make more noise for their businesses. While it is useful primarily to make noise for deserving small businesses, bloggers should remain true to their calling. Bloggers should write using their hearts.

When you are writing on topics that are close to your heart, you will bring many fruitful insights that your readers will appreciate. Eventually, you will develop your niche in that particular topic, and your readers will highly regard you. Furthermore, your readers know whether your writing from the heart or just for business. Thus, the sincerer you are in writing your heart out, the more readers you’ll have in the long run. It’s a win-win situation for both parties.

Ultimately, my visit to the 2014 Oakland Blogging Symposium is a success. I realized a lot of things that will prove useful in further developing my blog.

Does it fit to be an emotion, feeling, identity, individuality, or is it just an illusion? All these four thousands of religions have a core belief where they anchor their existence.

Achieving Mental Wellness (Things You Should Consider)

 

Source: health.mil

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines mental health as a state of wellness wherein the individual recognizes that his abilities are sufficient to cope with the everyday stresses of life. It’s the potential to become productive and capable of making a positive contribution to the community. Mental wellness is a positive state of overall health and is not only about the absence of mental disorder. It means that a person’s mind is in order and functioning in his best interest. It is the condition where the emotional and psychological factors are well-balanced, performing, and responsive to the environmental aspects.

 

The Factors Affecting Mental Health

A lot of internal and external factors contribute to the cognitive and emotional well-being. It includes financial issues, relationships with loved ones, work environment, as well as the adaptation to behavioral skills. Mentally well people have a positive outlook in life. They are self-assured and genuinely happy. They are mainly in control of their emotions, thoughts, and behavior, and this enables them to handle life challenges.

Achieve Mental Wellness

  • Pay attention to your feelings. You should be able to express your thoughts and ideas. One of the best possible ways to do this is through writing a journal or talking to people. Share your experiences and let other people know how you honestly feel. Know your emotional capabilities and understand the situation you are in. This way, you will be able to achieve mental wellness.

 

  • Learn to be at peace with yourself. Learn and get to know who you are, what you are, and what makes you happy. Acknowledge the things you can do and work on those things that you can’t. Identify your strengths and weaknesses and use them together in every aspect of your life. Always stay away from toxic pressure and remain calm all the time.

 

  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Listen to your body and let it enjoy the healthy and nutritious food. Enjoy a balanced meal and consider exercising regularly. Limit or avoid alcohol consumption, as well as the smoking habit if there’s any. Being physically and mentally healthy brings a lot of positivity in life, and that’s the key to mental wellness.

 

  • Build strong relationships. Learn to understand and be sympathetic with other people. Make time for your family and friends and share all life joys and sorrows. Every minute is worth sharing, and this type of investment is immeasurable. It results in a strong foundation of relationship and an enjoyable life.

 

  • Volunteer for a cause. It will help you connect with people and at the same time learn the values of life. Not everyone has the opportunity to be able to give back to the people. Being able to give back brings incredible feelings in return.

The reason why most people find happiness elusive is that they don’t do things that they need to experience mental wellness.  But if an individual perceives the right idea and tries to become healthy, he’ll never regret having that decision.

Factors That Contribute To A Successful Therapy

Therapies are meant to correct issues or irregularity in our wellbeing, but not all who have undergone therapy achieved great results. Some have missed the essential details and benefits of counseling and therapies. Several factors affect the outcome of treatment, and it all depends on the patient first and foremost. His decisions and responses play a vital role in the consistency and effectiveness of each approach.
