What is humblebragging?

“I’m so busy at work that I’ve only had 4 hours of sleep in the past 3 days.”

“Don’t you hate it when you can’t find enough lightning cables to charge your iOS devices?”

5 Things to Focus on When Your World Turns Upside Down

1. Everything is temporary.

Everything. When you cut yourself, you bleed, nurse a wound for a while, and then it heals. When a flower blooms, it’s beautiful for a while, and then it dries up. When there’s a storm, the rain and thunder may rage all night. But that passes, too.

How Hypnotherapy Can Be Relevant in the 21st Century

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.

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.
