The Road So Far – Feb-Mar 2018

Welcome to our series chronicling our journey to improve our lives!

Become a co-recovery warrior & help your loved one battle depression

Have you ever watched the “dog whisperer” Cesar Milan? One of the things he always does when he is working with a new dog is making sure the doggie parents know they need to be trained too.

I don’t always agree with all of his methods, but his idea of training not only the one that needs help the […]

Is Self-Soothing ASMR Soap Cutting the New Slime?

A new ASMR trend that combats insomnia and stress? I recently read online that the millennial/teen trend gaining traction right now is soap cutting. No really. This is becoming a thing just like the slime-making-palooza. Anyone remember the empty glue shelves last year? But, hold on, soap cutting as a trend!? If you question this, as I have, just put soap cutting into the search field on YouTube and prepare to be amazed by the […]

Budgeting 101: Even if you don’t have much money – yet!

“Doing the Budget” sounds about as much fun as pulling teeth and dancing the Macarena at the same time. When funds are tight, doing the budget can cause feelings of guilt, shame, overwhelm, and even depression. So, of course, we avoid it. Am-i-right? Here’s the deal though, budgeting is even more significant when there isn’t much money available. Why? Because, when you only have $50 for the next two weeks and over half of that […]

A Phoenix Rising

Hope a word so many take for granted it is bandied about in real life and lore usually with a dramatic flourish expertly acted “Hope keeps the dreams alive!” they say Although, no instructions seem forthcoming and dreams are nice but fail to thrive without action to relay them into being they are empty words unbecoming There is so much more we can do to be of support When did texting pleasantries or hashtagging outweigh […]

Getting Out and Making Zombie Lemonade | Phoenix Revolution

Getting Out & Making Zombie Lemonade

When life is throwing you lemons (or zombies!) use our recipe below to get out and be social! We struggle with getting out of the house and being social. I mean, we REALLY have to push ourselves to do anything “quasi-social.” At first, we just brushed it off saying, “we’re hermits” and “enjoy being alone” but now we know it’s depression and anxiety that’s been holding us back. Humans are social creatures. When we stop […]

One thing to keep in mind here at PXR is that improving […]
