Have A Cup Of Coffee…Or Two.

Coffee-Bean

Why, you ask? Because coffee can be a pretty amazing thing for your brain, your skin and your body.

Here is why you should wake up and have a cup of Joe every day:

  • Just smelling the coffee can make you less stressed.  Researchers have found that the aroma of coffee lowers stress levels.
  • Coffee lessens the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. Not only does it help those with Parkinson’s control their movements, but people are also less likely to develop the disease.
  • Coffee can make you feel happier. The reason behind the happiness coffee provides? The antioxidants we get from it.
  • Less likely to be depressed. A study found that those who drank 4 or more cups of coffee a day were 10 percent less likely to be depressed.
  • Lower levels of suicide. Drinking between 2 and 4 cups of coffee a day reduces the risk of suicide by about 50 percent. Coffee acts as a mild antidepressant by aiding in the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline.
  • Coffee helps keep your brain healthier for longer. Moderate coffee consumption can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s or delay the onset. Coffee allows your brain t work in a more efficient and smarter way.

Coffee is pretty awesome, so drink up!

Anxiety/Depression Counseling

Depression and anxiety also share an essential psychological component — namely, pushing people away from living in the present moment. Individuals with anxiety are continuously worried about the future, while people with depression are often focused on what has happened in the past.

People dealing with depression ask a lot of “why” questions of themselves, such as “Why did I … ?” People struggling with anxiety, on the other hand, tend to use statements indicative of fear of future events, such as “I’m really worried about what’s going to happen with …”

Depression

Depression is a condition in which a person feels sad, hopeless, unmotivated, or disinterested in life in general. Most people feel anxious or depressed at times, but when these feelings last for more than two weeks or interfere with daily activities such as taking care of family or going to work or school, it is considered a major depressive episode.

About 12 percent of women experience depression compared to 6 percent of men, making women twice as likely to be affected. At any point in time, 3 to 5 percent of people suffer from major depression.

Signs & Symptoms

  • Depressed mood
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities they used to enjoy
  • Feelings of guilt, hopelessness and worthlessness
  • Sleep disturbance (sleeping more or sleeping less)
  • Appetite and weight changes
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Lack of energy and fatigue
  • Suicidal thoughts or recurrent thoughts of death

Women suffering from depression often turn to alcohol abuse years after the onset of depression. Men are more likely to internalize or ignore their emotions, and can start unhealthy practices to cope with these feelings. These unhealthy coping methods can lead to mental health disorders and even suicide.

The good news is that even the most severe cases of depression can be treated. The earlier treatment begins the more effective it is. Treatment typically involves medications, therapy or a combination of the two. Couples counseling/Marriage Counseling can help you manage your feelings and cope with your depression.

Counseling for Couples

As in marital relationships, unmarried couples can experience an endless cycle of arguments, with even the smallest thing leading to a prolonged battle of who is right and who is wrong.  Sometimes, it is difficult to understand why such things are happening in your relationship despite the fact that you started it right. Where did the intimacy go?  Why do our differences seem so irresolvable? In couples counseling, we can help you make sense out of what is happening between you and help you restore the emotional connection you are both longing for.

Self Defining Memories and Scripts

An integrative model of narrative identity builds on a dual memory system that draws on episodic memory and a long‐term self to generate autobiographical memories. Autobiographical memories related to critical goals in a lifetime period lead to life‐story memories, which in turn become self‐defining memories when linked to an individual’s enduring concerns. Self‐defining memories that share repetitive emotion‐outcome sequences yield narrative scripts, abstracted templates that filter cognitive‐affective processing. The life story is the individual’s overarching narrative that provides unity and purpose over the life course.
