Military Working Dogs: More Than a Man's Best Friend

Military Working Dogs: More Than a Man's Best Friend | Stress & Depression Relief | Scoop.it

One thing we know all too well these days is that post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is all around us. As we honor and remember our fallen military personnel this Memorial Day, onecan’t help but think about the state of a service man or service woman’s state of mind in this age of war and loss.

 

Dog trainers and handlers alike can grow attached to their canine counterparts, much like you or I grow to love our own pets. They are truly appreciated for their hard work and dedication, and losing a dog partner can be much like losing a human partner. Not only that, but the dogs can also become very attached to their handlers, and extremely affected by injury or loss – to the point of developing a form of PTSD themselves.

Can Your iTunes Playlist Cure Depression?

Can Your iTunes Playlist Cure Depression? | Stress & Depression Relief | Scoop.it

Do you have an iPod, MP3 player or smartphone? If you enjoy music, you probably have at least one of these devices filled with some of your favorite tunes. You probably also crank the music during slow days at work to help you get through the day faster. Or at the gym to keep your mind busy, and your body motivated to move with the rhythm. Or on the drive home while singing along to the newest hit single from your favorite artist. However, it seems as though your tunes don't just serve as a good way to pass time; a new study suggests that music can actually help treat and prevent depression.

Curious About Reiki? We've Got Answers for You! | Stress & Depression Relief | Scoop.it

What Exactly IS Reiki?

 

Reiki is comprised of energy that flows around the meridians that surround your body and unblocks areas of built-up emotional energy. This life force energy removes these blockages and allows your body’s energy to flow naturally, which is when the healing begins. By repairing your energy flow, it heals aches and pains, nourishes organs, and allows your body to operate as it normally should. Since it fixes your emotional and physical bodies, your mood and your health are given a lift and you are awarded with a more positive outlook on life!
