August Don't Worry, Be Happy
Mental Moment 815 August 4
Don’t worry, be happy, was a song sung by Bobby Mcferrin 1988. It was an accapella song that was sung all over. There were buttons, T Shirts and a host of other memorabilia that reminded us not to worry, but to be happy.
Here's a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don't worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry you make it double
Ain't got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
The landlord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
As threats of another shutdown, variants of COVID-19, employers REQUIRING vaccines or risk of unemployment and a series of concerns looms.
I am reminded of this song and would like to offer mindfulness meditation as a coping strategy or technique to help us focus on things more positively.
Mindfulness is defined as a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.
Reduction of pain and enhancement of body’s immune system
When we’re stressed, the immune system’s ability to fight off antigens is reduced. That is why we are more susceptible to infections.
The stress hormone corticosteroid can suppress the effectiveness of the immune system (e.g. lowers the number of lymphocytes).
Reduction of feelings of depression, anxiety, anger and confusion
Fears, anxieties and tendencies toward depression are managed by seeking out their root causes. Once uncovered, patients learn how to take control of their emotions and life.
Provides a sense of calm, peace and balance
Reduction of stress
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

October Don't Be a DoorMat, Anymore
October Mental Health moment Don’t Be a Door Mat Anymore
These Boots are made for walking Nancy Sinatra
You keep sayin' you've got somethin' for me
Somethin' you call love but confess
You've been a'messin' where you shouldn't 've been a'messin'
And now someone else is getting all your best
These boots are made for walkin'
And that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
You keep lyin' when you oughta be truthin'
And you keep losing when you oughta not bet
You keep samin' when you oughta be a'changin'
Now what's right is right but you ain't been right yet
Definition of Door Mat
The primary purpose of any doormat is to provide a safe surface that can be used to clean footwear and prevent dirt from getting into a property.
