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. Guess what? I think Cesar’s method of including the entire family in his training is genius. 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 […]

What if that anger you’re feeling is pain in disguise? | Phoenix Revolution

What if that anger you’re feeling is pain in disguise?

Desc Have you ever taken a moment when you are angry to ask, “What purpose is there to being angry right now?” Or, “How is anger HELPING me?” Or, “What am I really feeling?” Do you realize how much joy and living you are missing out on when every ounce of your energy and focus is on anger? Are you also aware that a knee-jerk reaction to everything with anger may actually be masking an […]

I Suffer from Depression | Phoenix Revolution

I Suffer From Depression

Saying these four words, “I suffer from depression”, is a lot harder than I thought, harder than you might ever imagine possible. Then again, unless you’re one of the 350 million people in the world (that was in 2012 by the way) who has or is experiencing depression, you may not understand what I’m saying. Keep reading though, because it’s long past time that we talked about this. This is not a minor problem. It […]

Things we wished we learned in our childhood | Phoenix Revolution

Things we wish we learned in our childhood

Yesterday we were discussing our past and how we got to where we are today. One topic that kept coming up was how there were some things we wished we had learned as children so we could have avoided struggling with them as adults. The 3 key areas we wish we learned as children are how to handle money, nutrition and portion size, and emotional intelligence. How would our lives, and our parent’s lives, have […]

Recovery is not a solo journey | Phoenix Revolution

Recovery isn’t a solo journey

When someone close to you is struggling with depression and they are seeing a therapist, you may opt to keep yourself so busy you don’t have a chance to think about it. It is easy to think, “Since they are getting help, there is nothing else I can or should do.” But, there is something you can do to support them through recovery, and that is working as a team and fully participating in it.
