GET YOURSELF CHECKED: WHY MEDICAL HELP IS NEEDED

get in the office

How often do you go in for a doctor’s visit? I can tell you from me personally, I routinely go in to get myself checked. But, as for mental health, I have not been in a doctor’s office in quite some time. I just don’t feel the need to enter the mental health office because I have discomfort and I also figured out a way to cope. As for physical health, there is no way to not visit the office and feel like everything is just going to be fine. You have to go into the office and make sure things are right even if you feel great. I received my health insurance for the first time in years, and so far went about four times last year.So my question to you, how often do you checkup on your health?

the mental

For some reason we seem to not think about mental as we talk about health. But the mental aspect of health is directly connected to the physical. Since our brain is the central nervous system of our bodies, the thoughts that go through our minds is very crucial to our survival. Yet you would be surprised how much people would just flat out dismiss the idea that there is something mentally wrong with them. No one wants someone picking away at their brain, but we could all use some form of help at some period in our lives. Because this health should come before physical.

routine visits

How often do you go to the doctor’s office? Twice a year or once a month? Ok, maybe once a month is a little much. But you have to pick a time to go that works for you. Go in and get yourself a visit to make sure everything is up to par. And most don’t want to visit a doctor because we are afraid they might find something we don’t want to know about. But what is minor that we are afraid of turns into something major. You have to get out of that fear of being scared. Yes, we all will die some day, and that fear is constant. No one wants to go too soon, but never linger on Earth. So it’s that back and forth and fear that keeps us from going. But please people, get yourself checked.

HATING MY LIKENESS: HOW TO COPE WITH NOT LOVING YOURSELF

“Self hate is real.”


i am hurting

You ever look in the mirror and the reflection is what you can’t stand to see. But it is the human that is staring back at you that hurts to see. You are struggling to cope with your existence that is you on the planet. And how do you fix not liking yourself and wanting to be something else? You are smart, attractive, successful, but something is missing. Can it potentially be love? Well, some people have love for others and the utmost compassion, but they are hurting. What is the underlying problem that is wrong with you? I not only have I been there, but I still struggle in my mind being this person some times where I wish I didn’t turn on the lights in the bathroom.

mental madness

Let me give you an insight into my mental craziness. I was born in the year 1987 and coming up on 32 years of age. And my mind has been this weird field of up and down chaos. I have spent so much of my life depressed and shying from people. It was due to being poor and physically not feeling like I measured up to standards. Here I am 32 years of age trying to reclaim a life I never lived. Growing up in a household with my sisters and mother, not having a man to build your identity, the flower blooms in certain ways. For me it meant not shedding a tear for everything and trying to find my way in a world where no one fully understands you because there is a gender gap in the house. So you question yourself: mentally, socially, sexually, and physically. Luckily for me, I know why I hated what I looked at. Some people will never make it to that point.

reinvention

Here is the great part about living in New York City. I can recreate myself at any point in time. That really aids in you trying to break out of the funk that you are in. Now, that doesn’t mean everyone in New York is happy. What it means is for someone like me, I can continue to move forward because everyday I walk outside I am dealing with multitudes of people who know nothing about me. I can always focus on me and what I need to do in life.

NOTHING LIKE FOCUSING: HOW DO YOU CHANNEL YOUR MENTAL ENERGY

Woman Meditating

“Cool calm, and collective.”


cerebral feel good

When it comes to your mental health, how well do you channel energy from the inside out is important. What are some things that your mind focuses on that will aid in your overall good mental energy? Some of us focus on our careers others focus on our personal lives. But whatever it may be, you have to have something that holds your attention. Once you find that thing or things, you will be able to dismiss all the other bad things that try to find their way into your psyche. Now, as far as certain activities like meditation, I am unfamiliar with this type of ritual so I will leave that to the people who know best.

figure you out

In order to get to a place of knowing your mental energy and making it work for you, you have to first get to a place of recognizing what that means. And what do I mean by what mental energy means. Do you have to read books? Maybe. Do you have to try different technical exercises? Maybe. It is a time sort of method. And by that I mean, you have to look over a certain period of time within your life. And from that reflection figure out your shit. Hate to sound that straight forward, but it truly is what you have to do. Figuring out your shit means getting to a place of knowing how to make the world around you work in your favor to aid in your success.

internal benefits

When you are able top focus and channel your mental energy there are good health benefits, mainly mental health. Now, of course there are physical benefits like less stress on the body because you are in a bad cerebral place. But still, when the mind is not right, then you are going to run into some serious problems that will ultimately effect the physical anyways. And those ophyscial problems generally are issues that come from your own self harming.

MY MIND PLAYING TRICKS: THINKING YOU ARE NOT AS GOOD AS YOU ARE

Man Wearing Gray Sweater in Selective Focus Photography

“Mind F**K.”


why i hurt

I come from work from my overnight shift and go to sleep because it is still in the early A.M. And when I wake up it is usually in the morning in as well. How do I get myself motivated when my mind is rattled about when and where to start my day. This is something that comes across my mind on a daily basis. You start to feel like your mind is trying to destroy you from progressing in life. And that is a tough thing because you need your mind to exist. And your mind will be the launching pad that will propel you into success. So when it goes so does the ability to succeed.

the mirror doesn’t lie, your mind does

You ever stand in front of the mirror and look at yourself with disdain? The look that you don’t like what you see and that you are never going to be better than where you are now. That feeling of image as you look in the mirror will eventually turn into your reality. And the mirror will give you a literal interpretation of what you think of yourself. Only the mirror is not a trick mirror. You will slowly turn into the person you thought you were prior to what you have become. Your own physical embodiment will shift and now you are that person you hate. Trust and believe I know what that feeling is about and have been in that place.

uncertainty and unknown

Walking into the land of who knows what is a scary place to be. Because now you are trying to maneuver in a place where you are foreign. You don’t speak the language of the land and any form of communication means nothing. And I walk through this land, not because of the city where I dwell, but life. And that is why I feel like the mind is playing tricks. What I wake up intending to do and what I actually do sometimes is different. It’s like I am in a fight with myself because I don’t ever think I look as good as I look. I don’t think I am as smart as I am. So there is this constant battle with self until I am successful at what I do in life.

CONSCIOUS US: THE BUILDING BLOCKS BEHIND WHY WE HAVE ONE

Image result for CONSCIOUS

“Into the brain mechanics.”


what is it 

Having a conscious is something that is baffling on so many levels. And those of you who are unfamiliar with what is a conscious. A conscious is the ability to have the understanding of the world around you, to be awake. Now, in today’s society, people throw that word around so freely its pitiful. But how many people are truly awake. But that was a question for last month’s topic of the mind. This is the science behind why we have a conscious and how it works. So how does it work and why do we have one?

the mechanics of the mind

The small illustration below shows the mechanics of how man uses the conscious in our initial stage of life on this planet. We have a problem we have to solve, but in order to solve that problem we must be able to seek out a way to fix the problem. So in the beginning of time man had rain coming down. In order to keep from getting wet, man sought refuge in places that didn’t have rain entering. This was the place of man’s immediate home for living. And just like that, we started our path to what would be today. So the explanation is quite straight forward for how it works. Problem/Obstacle → theories to deal with problem → find a solution to the problem → problem solved → continue to enhance understanding for future problems.

why we have one

Why do we have one? We have one because it is the reason that has kept us alive for so long. Without being able to understand the sudden changes, certain obstacles placed before us, we would have died off. And from this we developed a communication link to keeping others from falling victim. And from there we started to develop language, and from there on we can build off of more to create working civilizations. The conscious also aids us in helping others because we could see ourselves in that same position. So we have one to continue to exist. The moment we become less aware, we become slaves to our own vulnerability.

GREAT MINDS BELONG TO THE WORLD: WHY YOU SHOULD BE FREE WITH YOUR KNOWLEDGE

Image result for einstein

“Spread the wealth.”


WHAT IS A GREAT MIND?

A great mind is not someone who can go to school and get a degree in a related field. A great mind is someone that has an open perspective on the world and is able to rationally apply it to society that is of benefit to everyone. Meaning, great engineers of our time and the past were able to create great efforts that we still use today: locomotive, automobile, aircraft, and aquatic. Well, what separates them from everyone else in society. Plenty of people have what they believe as great minds, but what makes the greats the great.

HOW DO YOU GET ONE?

The question of, “How do you get a great mind,” is not as simple as asking the question getting the answer. There are genetics involved, having a need that comes into question, as well as your take on the world. But there is another key element, and that is knowing that no matter how much you believe in something, understand when it’s not good. That means how many people are truly able to be true to what they are in life. Most people have this mental block that enables them to see who they are and their strengths along with weaknesses. They hear something that doesn’t align with their belief system and automatically shoot it down, instead of asking why do I believe in this and is it truly righteous to believe.

THE BAD MINDS OF THE BUNCH

Those who are of the group of people that can not get past themselves are the ones who can never reach full potential. They usually shift blame elsewhere on everyone else except themselves. These are the people who love the conspiracy theorist to death. Because we live in this society now where there is a demographic of people that love a place where they can go out and look for what ales them that will give them a reason for their current mental, financial, physical, or governmental situation outside themselves for why they can’t progress in life. I am in this situation because of this person or that systemic issue.

THE MASSES STILL NEED YOUR HELP

Still, even with the bad minds of society, the masses still could use a great that will propel them in the right direction. A great that will provide them with another way to look at life. A way that will not only set up the current generation but future generations for as the Declaration of Independence once said, “A future security for this nation.” And if you are of one of those people, it’s your duty to do so because when you don’t, you not only rob yourself, but you rob society of a quality of life. A quality that is not present currently at the moment.
