Fight Depression 7

Fight depression 7.

You can fight your depression. You can do something that will help you break out of the slump that depression puts you in.

These are things that you can do, control and help reduce your symptoms.

Give them a try.

  • Challenge the negative.

It is far too easy to live a half empty life.

The world is a mean nasty place but you don’t have to buy into all the negativity.

There are good people and things happening out there. Find the good and believe in it.

Look up the Prayer of St. Francis and make that your life’s calling.

  • Take responsibility.

You are in charge of your life so take charge.

Do what’s right and make amends where there is wrong.

Don’t play the blame game.

Yes, people mess up and cause you grief. Don’t let others ruin your life.

Have plans, have a direction and do what is necessary to live a wholesome life.

Fight Depression part 5

Fight depression 5.

You can fight your depression. You can do something that will help you break out of the slump that depression puts you in.

These are things that you can do, control and help reduce your symptoms.

Give them a try.

  • Sleep

Get just enough sleep to keep you going. Being depressed can go either way. Causing you to sleep less and sometimes too much. Have a regular schedule for sleep and get up and go to bed at the same time.

Develop good sleep habits and stay in a routine.

The Forest or the trees…

the forest or the trees

 

The forest or the trees.

You have heard the proverb, “You can’t see the forest for the tress”.

Often times we see the problems, the hassles, the negative stuff in our lives without seeing the bigger picture, the forest.

Most of the time the irritating stuff is just that little.

Little irritations that over time become big stuff. Not because they are big stuff. The little irritations are always just little.

The problem is in our perception of things.

We are focused on the trees and not the forest. We are focused on the little things and miss the big picture.

You are involved in a bigger picture, friends, family, the neighborhood are all part of the bigger forest picture. Hey. even the big old world is a part of your big picture.

Step back from looking at the trees, step back from your little irritations and see the big, big forest.

When you see your place in the bigger things, the forest you will see that the trees are just the trees.

The Giver Gets…

 

The Giver Gets.

Do something nice for your spouse and get something in return.

Studies have found that the giver of gifts, favors, niceties receives 45% greater emotional benefits than those who receive the gift.

So, do nice things for your spouse. The giving is receiving.

Guess what?

Kindness is one of the prominent traits in happy marriages.

Make Love First

Make love first.

Too many times we save love making until the end of the night and frankly it’s when we are tired out and have little energy.

I know bed time is ideal for intimacy. But be honest.

After a long day of work, dealing household stuff and the kids it’s hard to be enthusiastic about sex.

Please understand this your marriage needs intimacy and skin therapy. You cannot have a healthy relationship without sexual closeness.

So, why not love making first?

Before you settle down in front of the tube. Before your read the daily internet updates and gossip.

Get the kids to bed, do the dishes and snuggle with the one you love. Kiss hug and make out. If it leads to “more”, great. Then get ready for bed and a much-needed sleep.

If you save sexual intimacy until you have no energy what does that do for you, your spouse or your marriage?

Sex, intimacy should be a priority in all of your married life.  Make it a priority.

Make love first. Before you are too tired.

Grow closer in your Marriage part 3

 

Grow closer in your Marriage

 

  • Sex is about your love.

Hollywood, magazines and the internet have turned sex into something it is not.

Sex is about intimacy. Sex is about love.

Sex is about lovers loving in the most precious and beautiful way that is humanly possible.

Don’t cheapen it.

Don’t neglect it in your marriage.

  • There are ups and downs.

Understand this from the get go. You are not perfect and your mate is not perfect. The world is not perfect and things will happen that are out of your control.

There will be good times and bad times.

You will make mistakes. Your spouse will make mistakes.

Be prepared for changes to your plans and expectations.

Be ready to forgive and forget.

Be flexible.

Rejoice in the ups. Overcome the downs. Always let your love stand firm.

  • Hold up your spouse.

When women get together. Yes, when men get together. There is a tendency to grouse about married life.

Please, don’t do that. Don’t fall in to the trap of downplaying your love and your mate.

Comedians, TV shows and movies all make a joke of marriage and married life.

Yes, some of it is downright funny. But ultimately it slams your marriage and life together.

Take every chance you can to praise and honor your spouse. Do it in public and do it often.

There is good stuff happening in your marriage and you need to let the world know.

Be positive.

Be encouraging.

Be your spouse’s number one cheerleader.

Grow closer in your Marriage part 2

Grow closer in your Marriage

 

  • Your love is fragile.

You need to protect and nurture your love. This means that you take the time and commitment to care for the love you have.

Don’t compare, your love is your love.

Who cares what others are doing and what they have.

Stay away, far away from temptations.

Whoever and whatever those temptations may be stay away. The grass is not greener on the other side.

Tend to your own green grass.

If it isn’t green do what needs to be done to get things growing again.

  • Plan for love.

Some things just don’t happen. There has to be a plan. Vacations, birthdays and holidays all are coming. What is your plan for those special days and the time you want to spend with the one you love?

You want more love making in your life?

What’s the plan?

Intimacy starts a long time before you get to the bedroom.

  • Touch

Marriage is about being within reach and in constant touch.

Hold hands, hug, kiss be in each other’s space. Create times for contact. Brush up against each other. It’s called skin therapy. It doesn’t cost a thing. You don’t have to see a therapist to get the therapy.

It is not about sex, it is about human contact.
