Peace from Panic

Yesterday a friend and I went for our weekly walk, and got on the conversation of mental health. It turned to the subject of Millennials and mental health.

I told her about my volunteer work with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). I’m a presenter for their in-school program, Ending the Silence, which raises awareness about mental illness to middle and high school students.

My friend shared how her son (I’ll call him Garrett), a junior in college, suffers from anxiety and depression. He’s received treatment and is doing well. Garrett and his mom had been talking about technology, and how social media is a constant presence and a huge pressure in the lives of young adults.

Garrett was in a class last semester, in which the professor was adamant about having the students put their cell phones away.  They asked him why.

The professor said the best way…

2016💮 : Α 9 Universal Year of Completion!

Let’s have some predictions 😉 to keep in mind for 2016 by Yerevan!

Readings by Yerevan

2016 rounds up to a 9 Universal Year in numerology, so there will be a collective focus on completions, endings, and regeneration. This will be a year of raised spiritual awareness and breakthroughs on many levels. At times it will bring people inward and make them more reflective than they may be accustomed to if they are not introverted by nature.

2015 was very challenging but it made us stronger and got us ready for what is yet to come. There were many breakups, business collapses, and betrayals, particularly during the last three months. As is usually the case during periods of testing, challenge, and delay the areas of our lives truly in harmony are not the areas being “messed with” so to speak. Those areas may become even better, if we continue to feed them our attention. The things we tend to struggle most with during such periods are the ones…

World Teachers’ 💡✏📙 Day!

teachers' day

You’ve touched my soul, ryanbestre, with the words you chose to express your gratitude to your teachers…! 😀
Thanks for the info, too, as I didn’t know anything about it…(shame on me 😥 … I’m a teacher!)

Green Minded Me

I always wondered why a lot of my teachers were grumpy. Well, not really a lot of them but for some reason, teachers in general exude this malevolent energy. Okay, that’s an exaggeration. But in a funny twist of fate, I became a teacher – a mean teacher at that. And I realized it’s necessary to wear that “mean teacher” mask in order to have some semblance of a class.

I taught in the public school for two years and it’s one of the toughest jobs I ever had but it was also a character-building experience.

Sadly, the teaching profession in the Philippines seem to have lost its glory. Blame it on low pay (although better compensation and benefits is currently being pushed). Or they’re just being worked to death with extra tasks (serving as school nurse or librarian on top of being an advisory teacher). Plus tons of unnecessary…
