Music as medicine

They set out to determine if there was a recommended daily amount of music impacting various mood states and what type of music was commonly used to produce this effect. Of the 7,581 people test, they found that: 💎 90% used music to relax 💎 82% used music to improve their moods 💎 47% used music to process and/or release sadness 💎 33% used music to aid in concentration . . 🎯Paging Dr. Teel Topics:🎯 On this week’s episode of Paging Dr. Teel, we’re tapping into the therapeutic power of music!

Master Your Mind, Change Your Life: Overcoming Thinking Errors, Part II, Ep. 19
Negative self-talk robs you of happiness, makes you miserable, and can lead to depression, anxiety and/or illness. It leads to negative filtering, which itself is considered a cognitive distortion. We spoke about that last week. People that filter for the negative have literally trained their brains to zero in on the bad how? With practice. Practice makes perfect and this applies to our thinking. . . . Unhelpful thoughts stir up negative feelings, which in turn trigger more negative thoughts, creating a negative feedback loop. If we act on our distorted perceptions, conflict ensues that can give rise to unintended negative consequences #ViciousCycle ! As such, in this series I will provide you with various techniques, activities, and homework to do in order to learn to #MasterYourMind with the goal of changing your life.

Think Again.... Exploring Cognitive Distortions, Part 1: The Introduction
It is important to know that what you think is what you believe and what you believe is what you become. If you hope and live in expectation for good things to happen, that is what you will see. If you hope and live in expectation for good things to happen, that is what you will see. Conversely, if you hope and live in expectation always worrying about the bad things, that is what you will see. This means, our reality is based on what we think and dwell on. Sometimes the way we see our problems is, in fact, the problem itself. How we think can be a gift or a curse.

This week we revisit the concept of “accountability.” True accountability is fully owning everything that happens in your life. It means you understand you are responsible for your attitude, actions, reactions, teamwork, communication, and relationships. It also means you hold others accountable for the commitments and effort they give forth. Accountability lays the foundation for change and growth. Accountability is all about taking ownership of “the problem” to produce a viable solution. The very first episode of Paging Dr. Teel featured a surface level discussion on accountability. This week we revisit the topic of accountability exploring the underlying vulnerability, discomfort, and transparency required to grow. ******************************************** Get your Irish Sea Moss Gel or Ultimate Detox supplements using promo code: PagingDrTeel for 10% off and FREE shipping for orders over $50 at www.ohwellshop.com or IG @oh.wellshop

Assertive Communication: A High Demand Soft Skill & Tool of Interpersonal Excellence, Part 4 of 4
In general, assertive communication is most likely to lead to respectful and longer-term relationships, so that’s the style to strive for in most situations. Assertive communicators can express their own needs, desires, ideas and feelings, while also considering the needs of others. Assertive communicators aim for both sides to win in a situation, balancing one’s rights with the rights of others. Additionally, assertive communicators are often more likely to be high in emotional intelligence (EQ) which is currently a high demand soft skill in regards to employment. Research has found that on an average, people with high EQ make $29,000 more per year than people with low EQ but for obvious reasons. Emotional intelligence improves problem solving capabilities, resilience, communication & self management practices. Happy people are not only healither but they are also much easier to work with. As such, this week we are concluding our series on communication and discussing assertive vs. passive aggressive communication and exploring tips designed to help you become more assertive! ******************************************** Interested in boosting your energy, naturally detoxing, and getting radiant skin?

A Pause for the Cause: Picking up the Pieces, Episode 12
To live in a harmonious pluralistic society we have to acknowledge and account for the collective duality of the human experience that is good or bad. We are either good or bad. Good or bad is a choice we can all make regardless of the divisive “isms.” There are forces in society that hold us together & pull us apart. Healing, growth, and love can be the start we all need to encourage sustainable change.

Communication Matters: Responding instead of Reacting, Part 2 of 4, Episode 11
Emotional intelligence or EQ comprises intrapersonal and interpersonal skills — in particular high adjustment, sociability, sensitivity, and prudence. Thousands of scientific studies have tested the importance of EQ in various domains of life, providing compelling evidence for the benefits of higher EQ with regards to work, health, and relationships. For example, EQ is positively correlated with better leadership, job performance, job satisfaction, happiness, and well-being (both physical and emotional). EQ is negatively correlated with counterproductive work behaviors, psychopathy, and stress proclivity. Emotional intelligence allows for greater interpersonal responsiveness & decreases the likelihood of emotional reactivity. #motivation #happy #inspiration #positivepsychology #talk #interpersonalskills #emotions #wellnesswarrior #wellnesslifestyle #holisticwellness #wellnessblogger #healthtalk #healthwellness #wellnessjourney #positivity #balance #lifelessons #explorepage #emotionalhealth #inspire #holistic #wellness #anxiety #anxietyrelief #stressrelief #selfcare #mentalhealthmatters #communication

Calm, Cool & Collected: Holistic Health Hacks for Emotional Health, Anxiety & Stress, Episode 9

Yes, a major part of these outcomes are impacted by lifestyle and habits….but modern medicine isn't doing us any favors either! When it comes to our health we’ve gotta take a less is more approach. Natural solutions can be safer, more effective, and an empowering way to ensure personal wellness and vitality. As such, today we are talking about the use of essential oils, positive affirmations and CBD as holistic hacks for emotional health. Your health is your wealth and that includes emotional wellness.
