The Creative Brain On Exercise | Fast Company | EMDR | Scoop.it

For artists, entrepreneurs, and any other driven creators, exercise is a powerful tool in the quest to help transform the persistent uncertainty, fear, and anxiety that accompanies the quest to create from a source of suffering into something less toxic, then potentially even into fuel.

I’ve Learned That...

I’ve Learned That... | EMDR | Scoop.it

 

I've learnt that you cannot make someone love you.
All you can do is be someone who can be loved.
The rest is up to them.

 

I’ve learned that no matter how much I care,
some people just don’t care back.

 

I’ve learned that it takes years to build up trust
and only seconds to destroy it.

 

I’ve learned that it’s not what you have in your life
but who you have in your life that counts.

 

...

 

I’ve learned that you should always have loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you’ll see them.

 

I’ve learned that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to
doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

 

I’ve learned that no matter how good a friend is,
they’re going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.

 

...

 

I’ve learned to love
and be loved.
I’ve learned…

 

(Poem by Omer B. Washington)

True Love Is...

True Love Is... | EMDR | Scoop.it

Researchers at Ted Huston of the University of Texas followed 168 newlywed couples for 14 years. After 14 years, 62 were happily married, 38 were unhappily married, and 46 were divorced. These are the main reasons why these relationships last. Surprisingly, rocky full of drama passionate love, isn't it.

 

Happy lasting relationships:

1. Began with an average courtship of 25 months

2. Unfolded as any good friendship: Slowly and steadily

3. Involved warmth, empathy, kindness and forgiveness 

4. Positive perception of the significant other

For depression, relapsers go to the front of the brain

Depression is increasingly recognized as an illness that strikes repeatedly over the lifespan, creating cycles of relapse and recovery. This research indicates that activating the visual parts of the brain helps formerly depressed folks NOT relapse. Could this be a way that EMDR can help in that we ask for "pictures" in our set-up for a target, and sometimes offer new pictures as an interweave, or as a positive resource. Thanks to Dr. Andrew W. Leeds,  one of the prominent EMDR trainers for pushing this article onto my digital desk.

New York TimesWhen Your Therapist Is Only a Click AwayNew York Times Marlene M. Maheu, a therapist, uses Skype to communicate remotely with patients. She has served on task forces to address issues of online therapy. What do you think about on-line therapy as a client? or as a therapist? This is a long way from the comedy on Showtime called, "Webtherapy" (although, I do enjoy watching it for some laughter therapy!). Let me know what you think!

Brain 'rejects negative thoughts' in optimistic folks

Brain 'rejects negative thoughts' in optimistic folks | EMDR | Scoop.it

Optimists retain a positive outlook on life despite all evidence to the contrary. With negative information, the most optimistic people had the least activity in the frontal lobes, while the least optimistic had the most.It suggests the brain is picking and choosing which evidence to listen to. So would cooling down the fronal lobes help us cope with downturns in the stock market? Maybe!
