As science and technology quickly evolve, the areas of medicine and health also benefit, and in this modern age, one would think that all medical doctors rely solely on practices that are clinically tested and proven. It is, however, undeniable that both patients and doctors are also turning to alternative treatments and therapies for various conditions. Some even go back to practices that were used in previous centuries. Certainly, there is a good reason for this: some of these practices are applicable even in the modern era.
Hypnotherapy is one practice that has been used since ancient times and is being used by some modern medical practitioners, as there is evidence that the practice works and benefits patients. In our modern society, people often suffer from conditions such as pain, unhealthy practices, and negative patterns of thinking. While traditional medical science can work to solve these conditions, hypnotherapy offers an alternative solution. This may involve changes in lifestyle – including creating a healthy diet, making behavioral changes, and altering belief systems. The bottom line is that hypnotherapy offers natural solutions, i.e., tapping into the power of the subconscious, instead of pumping one’s body with medication.
Hypnotherapy’s roots may lie in ancient practices, but it really does help a lot of people today. In fact, even in the most progressive cities, hypnotherapy is being practiced. For example, you might be surprised how easily you can find qualified NYC hypnotherapy practitioners.

In the past months, I’ve realized just how easy it is to fall into the usual pattern of thinking negative thoughts. It is even easier when life just doesn’t seem to give you a break, but keeps throwing you curveballs instead. Once you have gotten used to thinking that everything that can go wrong will go wrong and how horrible your life is, it is quite difficult to see things from a different perspective – a more positive perspective.
However, throughout history, many a great man has emphasized the power of positive thinking. Yes, it is easier said than done, as most things in life are, but it doesn’t mean that you cannot give yourself a push, a nudge, or a kick – whichever applies – in the right direction: positive thinking.

We’ve all had those days when we just don’t feel like getting out of bed and facing the day. The heavy feeling may even start the day or night before. It’s normal. It’s life.

So much has been said and written about waking up early in the day and how it allows us to get more things done. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out that the earlier you start, the more hours of the day you can use to your advantage. But how do you wake up in the morning and actually hit the ground running?
If you’re not a morning person, waking up in the morning can be one of the most difficult tasks in your life. Trust me – I know the feeling. However, the body and mind can be trained, and even a night owl can learn how to wake up in the morning earlier than usual and actually feel good about it. Read the rest of this article →

Lately, I have been battling depression more than usual. I know it is partly due to the extraordinary circumstances I am in right now, but it is also due to all those years of not facing my own issues. For many people who suffer from depression, the situation is usually the same.
Beating depression is not an easy thing. On good days, you get up and have hope that things will get better. On bad days, you feel like it’s a constant uphill climb.
Coming from one who is in the same boat as you may be, here are some quotes to beat depression. I’m not saying they’re going to beat depression forever. They may even sound trite (everything seems trite when you’re in a rut), or they may seem useless. Trust me on this: keep reading and reading and reading.
You’ll get out of that rut, and you’ll find that strength inside you. They may just be quotes, but words have a powerful effect if you imbibe them and believe that there is always hope, even if it doesn’t seem like it at the moment.
