Being a mom can be very tough. There are so many obligations to fulfill and expectations to meet. Then, you can perform your duties satisfactorily if you can provide financially for your family. And expectations are achieved if you stay home with the kids and manage the household. Sadly, most mothers can’t do both.

“Problems arise when moms believe they need to give everything — all their time and attention to their kids — without nurturing themselves, she said. “Also, our culture still praises selflessness in motherhood, so there is a fear of being judged if you take time to attend to other interests and needs.” – Jessica Michaelson, PsyD

Starting a Psychiatry Blog [unique article]

For mental health educators, starting a psychiatry blog is one way to help their students learn more about the medical specialty without reading it from a textbook. Of course, all information that will be included is based on related literature and public scholastic references regarding the field of psychiatry.

“There’s a lot of science grounding expressive language writing and journaling as being an extremely helpful piece for maintaining mental wellness. You don’t want patients just to use their 50-minute sessions to process what’s going on in their lives. Instead, we should be helping them create a toolbox of ways to express themselves that they can use not only outside of therapy but in place of therapy at some point.” – Deborah Serani, PsyD,

2014 Syracuse Blogging Conference: It Is More Than Just A Hobby

Source: pixabay.com

The 2014 Syracuse Blogging Conference aims to redefine blogging. We think that it is just a way to express one’s thoughts – a sideline. It is because some bloggers have a “real job” aside from blogging, and it is merely a way for them to pour something into our cups from their pot. However, blogging is more than just “it.” It is a way of life that some people already made a fortune and some people made a life out of it already.

What To Do When You Can’t Write?

Would you believe that even great writers experience mental blocks? Yes, they do. The truth is, there are times that these writers find themselves in a pressured situation of creating something with their unstable mental and emotional condition. With all the stress and anxiety that come with the whole unfortunate scenario, most of them end up into writing nothing.

“Some of the clients I see come to me because of problems related to the creative process. Sometimes they call it writer’s block. Sometimes they say, “I have the idea but it won’t come out onto the canvas.” We work together to determine the underlying causes of distress, often by setting aside the identified problems themselves and looking at their underpinnings.” – Sarah Swenson, LMHC.

So if you are also having the same problem, do not fret because you are not alone. Below are the everyday situations that perhaps stop you from moving forward in writing and the things you can do to address it.

Mental Block (Lack Of Enthusiasm)

Having a mental block is common for writers. Honestly, it is not something that they should worry severely. However, there is a type of mental block that seems to be dangerous for some. It is a little different from what most writers experience because it tends to fizzle out ideas. The truth is, writers are not mentally blocked because they can still think about what they want to write. The problem here is a lack of enthusiasm. The particular attitude caters to writers’ motivation and will to create.

There are two things that writers can do to address the situation. First, they have to listen to their critical voice. If they feel like their writings will never be good enough, they must recognize why they started working on it in the first place. Honestly, it is as simple as providing one’s self reasons as to why they do the things they do. Another one is writing anything. It does not have to be specific or detailed. As long it potentially creates a relation to what is currently hanging at the moment, it will be fine. You see, writing does not intentionally follow a path. But not unless the writers want it to be unique and engaging, then it is another side of the picture.

Exhaustion (Working Without Resting)

Another thing that keeps writers away from writing is rest. Yes, that is correct. When these individuals feel motivated into finishing their art, most of them forget the value of rest. They don’t sleep and sometimes do not take a break. The problem with this habit is different, though. That is because not only it affects the mental function of writers, it also damages the physical state as well.

“You probably don’t have any trouble recognizing when you’re physically exhausted. Your limbs might feel heavy, your eyes droopy, your energy zapped. But knowing when you’re mentally exhausted can be trickier,” says Megan MacCutcheon, LPC. “It’s easy to get so busy juggling everything you have on your plates that you fail to recognize when you’re headed toward mental exhaustion or burnout.”

The way to eliminate the problem here is for writers to find the moment to take some rest. Those jobs won’t go anywhere, and it will entirely stay the same tomorrow. Therefore, pausing from stressful writing gives you time to regenerate. It allows both the mind and body to gather all the necessary strength that will be useful in dealing with the situation right after a significant interval.

According to Julia Hogan, LCPC, “The perfect sleeper avoids screen time before bed; journals and decompresses before crawling under crisp, clean sheets; and falls asleep in about seven minutes for a good seven to nine hours each night. In reality, most of us don’t check all those boxes before bed. Life has a sneaky way of making it difficult to consistently get quality sleep each night.”

Controlling a mental blockage is impossible. However, managing it is comfortable with these helpful ideas. Most writers used it over and over because it promises to build a better writing experience. Try doing it now and see the results.

 

 

Managing Life Through The Art Of Writing

Not all people like to write. Some think that it is a habit that takes all the time and energy. It does not necessarily create a difference in one attempt too. In some cases, writing something can be tedious and a little frustrating to do. Sometimes, it is so demanding that it feels like eating up all the mental strength that people have. It is not ideal for those people with disabilities as well. And even if a lot of health experts attest to its benefits in the emotional and mental aspects, not everyone has something to write in a piece of paper. Although everyone has a story to tell, not all of them are open about it, even to themselves.

However, those are the thoughts of people who cannot find good things about writing. Because for some people, writing is extraordinary. It takes away all the worries and anxiety that individuals experience in their lives. It becomes the reviewer that merely tells them everything about life. That includes the stress they get from family issues, peer pressure, relationship struggle, and self-awareness. Writing can significantly introduce resolution due to problem recognition too. It can show people the things they should be thankful for living as well.

“There’s a lot of science grounding expressive language writing and journaling as being an extremely helpful piece for maintaining mental wellness,” says Deborah Serani, PsyD, a New York-based psychotherapist. “You don’t want patients just to use their 50-minute session to process what’s going on in their lives. Instead, we should be helping them create a toolbox of ways to express themselves that they can use not only outside of therapy but in place of therapy at some point.”

How It’s Done

With all the technological advancements in the world, people are not anymore into writing stuff. Most of them run their errands on their smartphones. All are focused on gizmos and everything. But what these individuals do not know that the benefits of writing are endless. It is as if like entering new worlds. There is recognition over the past experiences where it allows internalization as to why things happen before. With that, there comes a change. Writing can also support future situations. It can aid in listing short-term and long-term goals, as well as daily duties. It allows individuals to become prepared. It creates a sense of focus. Writing creates magic in people’s lives. Because not only it does support creation, it also allows life teaching.

Writing can change people’s lives because of their potential to subject into a story. It can connect to people’s reality. It contains narratives that show how life can become so captivating, though it is often tough. In writing, emotional and mental state is so essential. It is its foundation. And when it becomes a passion, it brings forward the truth of the unnoticed things that people can no longer understand. It is something that not only teens and adults can take advantage of. Writing is for everyone. Even kids can understand the value of creating something out of their imagination.

John Grohol, PsyD, writes, “I’ve seen this time and time again with some of my friends’ blogs — they share feelings and thoughts that I’d have a hard time getting from them in-person. Especially since many times people blog as they’re going through an emotional or difficult situation in their lives. It’s so much easier to blog about it as it’s happening than to try and call and talk to a half dozen close people by phone, repeating the same information and feelings time and time again (which can result in an emotional drain).”

Takeaway

For Susan Borkin, psychotherapist, “Journaling offers many benefits, Journal writing serves as a tool to help bring a new perspective to these memories by allowing the individual to process them in an organized way as opposed to just replaying them. The individual is then able to experience a cognitive shift with respect to the traumatic experience.”

Yes, there are still a lot of people who think writing is not as critical as it is today. These individuals are perhaps too busy understanding the world rather than living in it. But one thing is sure; life is not always as it is. And when people try to learn to put the details in a paper, they will see that everything they experience is only a part of a bigger story.
