- Live Well Tip of the Week: You have to find something to believe in that is greater than yourself. Acknowledge a greater power than yourself. The power that you can hold onto whether things are difficult in life or not. Make sure you're nurturing that belief!
- A Quote from Our Guest: “We are spirit beings first, so it's important to feed your spirit. Without feeding your spirit, you become unaligned with yourself.” ~Jamice Holley
9 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode:
- We are spirit beings first, so it's important to feed your spirit. Without feeding your spirit, you become unaligned with yourself.
- Just because you think a thought, doesn't mean it has to be true. Allow yourself to reflect on what God says about a particular subject matter.
- God doesn't allow things to happen to you, it happens for you! God uses what we’ve gone through to help others and to bring him glory. There is purpose in what we go through!
- Prayer is a weapon but therapy is a strategy!
- Therapy allows you to build a reparative relationship with how you view the world and yourself. God can use both prayer and therapy to help shift your mindset.
- We also must do the work to better ourselves! Prayer without works is dead.
- Step one is to take care of yourself. Take care of the 5 pillars of yourself. Eating healthy, hydrating, reading a devotional, recharging your energy etc. Before seeking therapy, you should consider working on your physiological health care first, in order to assist with any physical imbalances that you may be experiencing.
- The goal is to go to therapy to get what you need, and then use the tools and strategies that you have learned in your day to day life! You want a therapist that you can get along with, but also one who is willing to help you become a better version of yourself, instead of just being your friend.
- If a particular therapist isn't working for you, let them know what's not working for you and what you feel may need to be adjusted in order to move forward. Make sure to voice your concern. Therapy is a safe place for you to be able to voice your opinions and your truths.
