Six Tips For Protecting Your Hearing*

Six Tips For Protecting Your Hearing*

There are a couple of things that need preventative care, and your hearing is one of them. You should take care of your teeth, eyesight, and hearing as well as you can. Your general health matters too, but you can play an active role in these areas. Here are six tips for protecting your hearing. 1. Loud Noises If you work in a noisy environment, like live music venues or lawn mowing, for example, it is essential to know that you can suffer from irreparable damage. Noise-induced hearing damage happens over time. Most of the time, this type of hearing loss isn’t recognised until it begins to impact someone’s life. If you work in an area that is prone to loud noise, then earplugs and protective headphones are a great way to stop the full force of the loud noises getting to your ears.  2. Checkups You should ensure that you have regular checkups for your hearing. It is often the case that if you want to have the best opinion, you should book directly with an ear clinic. Their specialists will be able to give you a thorough hearing exam. You can also schedule outside of regular timed appointments if… View Post
Three Questions To Ask Yourself Before Making a Big Change*

Three Questions To Ask Yourself Before Making a Big Change*

Sometimes, it’s essential to change. If you’re bored with your job or feeling insecure about your job’s future, a new career direction is a scary but necessary change. If you want to make some new friends, putting yourself out there is terrifying, but ultimately leads to the best results. And of course, when the time comes for these hard but beneficial changes to happen, we can feel like we’re not ready for it.  So, here are three questions to ask yourself before making a big change. Taking a big step in your life is something we all have to do, at least two or three times during our long years. There’s going to be some changes we’re excited for, and some that we’ll never quite get used to, but most of all, there’s going to be a personal change, and that can feel both good and bad in our hearts.  So, let’s think about this for a second: are you ready to take a big step in your life? It’s alright if you’re not, but let’s think a little more deeply about how to proceed from here. If you’re not feeling ready, what can be done to steel yourself for a… View Post
Tarot Tuesday: Trust and Courage to Live Your Truth

Tarot Tuesday: Trust and Courage to Live Your Truth

So, it’s been a while. The world has been throwing so many curve balls at us lately. I am no exception to this, of course. These days we need trust and courage to live our Truth. We are currently living through such incredible energetic times. I mean, the tangible representation of events that have transpired over the past couple of months. As mentioned before, we are currently living out a four energy global year. Four energy is our heart chakra, the house of our Soul and our Inner Being’s core navigational system. Energetic shifts have been paving the way for this opportunity to embrace a path to ascension and higher levels of consciousness. One of the roadblocks I have faced during my spiritual awakening is trusting myself. Trust is vital to our self-esteem and our ability to trust and live harmoniously with others. I believe that the current energy we are living through is here to trigger us into trusting in not only our selves but who and what we have been attracting into our lives. I have personally gone through a lot of transitional events over the past 21 days. The old me would have made this time an… View Post
Why Pain Is A Physical and Emotional Experience

Why Pain Is A Physical and Emotional Experience

Pain is an inevitable, often horrible sensation that alerting you that something isn’t quite right. Whether you stub your toe or discover a personal betrayal, pain can hit you in the core of your being like nothing else. Read on to discover why pain is a physical and emotional experience. What is pain? The nature of pain is fascinating. If you asked a doctor fifty years ago what they thought it was, they would say it was most likely the result of nervous impulses. For instance, you hit your knee on a table, it then overwhelms the local nerves, sending a flurry of signals to the brain. And once it’s there, the mind itself generates a sensation of pain, and that’s what causes the physical ‘hurt.’  But the above explanation opens up a whole new set of questions.  For example: Is pain real?  Are painful emotions felt on the same level as physical pain?  Can emotions cause pain?  It’s all very confusing.  Is Pain Real?  Well, it depends on what you mean by ‘real.’ Pain is a subjective experience. The only reason we know it exists is because most of us experience it for ourselves. If you were to zoom in… View Post

5 Quotes to Help You Maintain Sobriety (and Sanity) During #StayHome

The world is a complicated and yet often simplistic place. In these ever-changing times that we are living in, it may seem like at any moment you want to pull the hatch and escape into something that feels, well, less shitty. So, here are five quotes to help you maintain sobriety (and sanity) during #StayHome – as well as my two cents on each one, because why not? I get it. Years ago, if I were forced to spend all of my free time indoors and isolated from others, I would have used that for a time to pick myself apart, focus on my fears/inadequacies, and be doing it with a bottle of wine not far from my hands. I’m not going to say that there have been no moments in the past six weeks when I have not thought, ‘wouldn’t it be nice to escape this?’ — I did have those thoughts, but I now know that you can’t escape. The only way to the other side of anything is to face it and embrace it. And one thing that has helped me the most in my now 792 days alcohol-free is wisdom from others. There is no better… View Post
