በስራ ላይ ለምን የአእምሮ ጤና ጉዳዮች?

If you’ve been following our blog or newsletters, you know we’ve been talking a lot about how mental health affects all other aspects of life: physical health, sleep, nutrition, and exercise… the list goes on. But one thing we may not always think of is how neglecting our mental health affects our work. It can […]

በዕድሜ አዋቂዎች መካከል “ከሰማያዊዎቹ ብቻ” ማለትም ድብርት በሚሆንበት ጊዜ

As we focus on older adults’ mental health this week, we look at how aging relates to mental illness – how it affects it and how it looks different in older adults. Depression is not a “normal” sign of aging. Although common in older adults, it is something to be taken seriously. But how do […]

ዓመቱን በሙሉ ራስን መንከባከብ አስፈላጊ መሆኑን በማስታወስ

Very often, I need to remind myself that I need to practice better self-care, particularly around this time of the year. Nine years ago in May, I lost my best friend and husband of almost sixteen years. I’ve learned over the nine years since this loss, the importance of honoring the feelings that accompany this […]

የተጨነቀ ልጅን ማሳደግ

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about parenting with anxiety. As Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day was recognized on May 5, I wanted to look at parenting an anxious child. My daughter is still very young but already has a strong personality. She is incredibly empathetic, has intense emotions (what 3-year old doesn’t?) and […]

I don’t know about you, but since the time changed for daylight savings time, I just can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep. We’ve all heard how important it is to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night – how sleep increases your energy, makes your skin glow, helps with weight loss, improves your […]

በጭንቀት ወላጅ-አዲስ መሰናክሎችን ማሸነፍ እና ሁሉንም ሚዛናዊ ለማድረግ መማር

My 3-year-old daughter was a difficult baby, at best. She was colicky, didn’t sleep through the night until she was 13 months old and incredibly “spirited.” During the first 18 months of her life, my anxiety was through the roof. Over the years, I’ve learned how to manage my symptoms, but parenting brought a whole […]

ፀደይ የፀሐይ ብርሃን ባያመጣም-የሚወዱትን ሰው በድብርት ወይም በጭንቀት መደገፍ

Spring has (sort of) sprung here in Colorado. And although Spring is typically associated with flowers, butterflies, and bunnies, many don’t realize that it is actually a time when depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts are at the highest for some individuals. It’s overwhelming to suffer from anxiety or depression, but it can also feel overwhelming […]

ስለ ወታደራዊ አገልግሎትዎ በሕይወትዎ ውስጥ ካለው ልጅ ጋር ማውራት

There we were, coming into the black-sanded beach of Iwo Jima. Bullets whiz by and explosions go off all around us. Were you scared, Grandpa? Of course I was scared. Before we got into our boat, the Captain said that there might not be any ice cream left if we didn’t hurry back. My Grandpa […]

በአሥራዎቹ ዕድሜ ውስጥ የሚገኙትን ተወዳጅ መሣሪያዎን - ስልካቸውን በመጠቀም - በመመገባቸው ለማገዝ

March is National Nutrition Month – a great time to check in with yourself and your family about the importance of healthy eating habits. My teenage daughter, who is a competitive softball player and exercise fanatic, is in great shape; so when she came to me complaining about her “love handles,” I laughed at first. […]

አዎ ይችላሉ! የመቋቋም እና ስሜታዊ ተጣጣፊነትን ለመገንባት ምክሮች

How resilient are you? Are you able to roll with the punches life tends to throw at us? Resiliency is an important skill that allows us to be flexible when life knocks us down; it allows us to come back stronger. Resilient people still experience adversity but do not let it define them. They often […]
