Psychedelics are given a bad rap. Why? They’re stigmatized by society at large because they’re lumped in with more volatile drugs like cocaine, heroin, and meth. Just as marijuana is typically associated with the harder stuff. Of course, this generalization stems from ignorance. While hallucinogens or psychedelics like LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) can’t outright kill you, like anything else in this world, too much of a “good thing” can be bad for you.

Music is a powerful tool in more ways than one. It was my saving grace while growing up in a less-than-stellar environment. To me, it’s catharsis personified. Escapism for the brain. Personally, listening to classical music or ambient is a balm for the soul. Whenever my anxiety is through the roof, whenever everything seems bleak and hopeless, putting on my favorite songs can make me feel right as rain. One of my favorite albums I’d listen to when I was in the depths of my depression, was…

Do you think about the way you think? That sounds corny, but you get the picture. Most times we are careful to cast a muzzle on our lips to avoid hurting others by the things we say. However, we often fail to scrutinize the thoughts we have dancing in our heads.

We can harm ourselves and the people around us by the way we think. The thoughts we allow to occupy room in our minds can affect our map of the world and mental sanity. …

The Mayo Clinic defines anxiety as:

“Intense, excessive, and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Fast heart rate, rapid breathing, sweating, and feeling tired may occur.”

For those with anxiety, it can be hard to navigate the minefield of…

The American Psychiatric Association defines depression as “a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed. …

Do you exercise?
