  1. Do you believe in God? If not, do you think you might nonetheless pray if you were in a life-threatening situation? Not really, maybe yes. For me religion is something that let people to feel safe and rely on when they feel lose and don't what to do, so call like spiritual sustenance. I don't resist any religion as long as they are helpful, friendly, kind and lead people into a good way just religion is not my thing in this moment.

    • I admire people who are kind and compassionate, and use their voice to help others and to uplift inspire those who struggle in life.   While my voice is not quite matured enough, I do have a kind heart, and I do desire to help others feel.
    • Hi, I am new to this platform, and I am excited to meet likeminded individuals and learn a new skill for healing. I am a massage therapist and I desire to help diminish health disparities in my community by engaging people in free massage amd wellness education events 
    • Day 6 - The Body Scan   Reflection Question: Q.) What information do you receive when checking in with your body? I could perceived that my face's muscles was very tense and I felt some pain in my legs. I also felt that my posture was not that straight. Feeling the air temperature was a pleasure sensation tho.
    • Hi...I dont know what name to address you, "Braveheart..." I have never heard of a Personal Trainer having LCSW after his or her name, though anything is possible. Anyone who has LCSW= Licensed "Certified" Social Worker...hope that helps...in respect of other disciplines, I have met some qualified,  Ph.D. Therapists too (Doctor of Philosophy). Have a Great day, ~~~Rick~~~
    • Thank you all so much for your information on mental health. I'm definitely excited to explore all these options more in-depth. Do you guys think when getting a personal trainer who is also a LCSW a good idea? Are LCSW professionals certified? I'd love to hear your input on that. Thank you!
    • Day 5 Reflection Question: Q.) How did the practice of wishing others well impact your interactions?   I think that it makes me with a better mood and I was more inclined to be more empathetic with the people in my life.  Q.) Did it shift your mood in any way?  Did it impact the quality of your attention? Yes, my mood was amazing today. I think I was able to pay more attention to my younger brothers and people that I love.
    • Wonderful reflections! Thanks for sharing again. I have had a similar experience with nature, once coming to realize that prior to a few years ago, I never really played close attention to the signs of spring - to buds slowly forming on tree branches, to birds awakening. 
    • Great question Narmadha. The answer is that I use both, depending upon the moment. I find deep breathing is extra supportive for me when I am very overwhelmed. However, if it is simply a case of a distracted or overstimulated mind, awareness of the natural flow of my breath is usually enough. My suggestion would be to just experiment and to listen to the needs of your mind and body in any given moment. There is no single 'right' way to do it.
    • Day 4 Today I was with pain and my focus was more dispersed. Reflection Question: Was there anything that surprised you on your walk? Oh, yes. I was walking in my yard and saw a lot of little animals, like a big spider between plants. The souns that I heard surprised me as well, how can have so many animals and life in my yard? Why I never payed atention to that?  What impact might taking an open awareness approach have on your work? Well, my job is basically to listen and really understand what the other person is talking about. So I think the open awareness can help me be more aware of non-verbal communication, and at the same time, not get lost in my thoughts.
    • I would also agree with Gillian regarding other "Modalities" for your Anxiety & Depression, particularly Counseling with a Licensed Certified Counselor or Psychotherapist; since I have been on both receiving & treating end, I would lean toward a LCSW, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, however, that is an individual choice. That was my preference since I was an LCSW and been in Therapy with an LCSW.  Any Physical activity was always an adjunct along with Therapy for me; Running was my forte. Wish I could do now, since age is creeping in:(.
