Blaming others never helps you

Blaming others never helps youWho do you typically blame when something goes wrong? Do you accept responsibility or finds someone else to blame it on? Unfortunately, many people opt for blaming others rather than accepting responsibility. Yes, sometimes it really is someone else’s fault and they need to be held accountable. But when we are the ones that are responsible, shifting the blame to others is rarely the right thing to do.

We sometimes don’t have an objective view of the situation.

 

Six Tips to Help Deal With Depression and Anxiety

Photo by Kat Jayne from PexelsDepression and anxiety are some of the worst things we can experience. We all have a lot of good things in our lives, but depression acts like a carjacker by jumping in and speeding away with everything we should be joyful about.

We all get “the blues” from time to time where we’re just feeling off.  If you’ve had days when you don’t want to get out of bed or don’t want to face the world,  then you may have struggled with depression.

Know that you are worth it

There’s a podcast from Ben Lionel Scott that I enjoy listening to. The clips are short so I mix them in with the other ones I listen to. They are the audio from the amazing videos he puts on his YouTube channel. 

No mistake is worth killing yourself

Stress is at an all-time high – even before COVID-19 hit. People are working too hard, juggling too much and taking on more than they can handle. Life is certainly not easy.

I read through the daily Catholic mass each day, as many of you probably know. Whether you’re religious or not, you can benefit from what I’m about to share. Wednesday’s reading included the below passage from Acts 25-27:

My Favorite Podcasts

Photo by Austin Distel on UnsplashPeople frequently ask me about the podcasts I listen to. It’s funny because until recently, I didn’t regularly listen to podcasts. I spend a big chunk of my day interacting with people. And when I need to crank out work and focus, I prefer music.  However, I now spend 45-100 minutes walking outside each day which is the ideal time to learn. And what better way to learn is there than listening to podcast?

 

I have the following preferences when it comes to podcasts:

  • Relatively short in length (an hour or less).

30 Day Progress Check In

30 Day Progress Check InI posted a few weeks ago about Andy Frisella’s 75 Hard program and how I’ve incorporated it into my own five week program. So if you’re wondering whether I kept going or gave up, wonder no more. I’m still going strong and have a lot to report.

This post is a little late as I’m actually on Day 41 now. I switched hosting providers for my blog and website unexpectedly. So I’ve focused on getting them to work rather than adding more content. You might notice a lot of special characters randomly showing up in posts. I had nearly 400 posts to fix and have gone through 50 so far.

My Review of 75 Hard by Andy Frisella

My Review of 75 Hard by Andy FrisellaI was struggling to get motivated a few weeks back so a friend recommended 75 Hard. It’s a free 75 day mental toughness program by entrepreneur Andy Frisella. I instantly recognized Andy from the videos by Ben Lionel Scott that I enjoy watching (and I highly recommend his podcast). I’ve been working on my own 30-day program since November so I figured I’ve give this program a try along with what I’m already doing.
