Myths vs Facts- Sucide

Myth: People who talk about suicide won’t really do it.

Fact: Almost everyone who attempts suicide has given some clue or warning. Don’t ignore even indirect references to death or suicide…

Myth: If someone is determined to kill themselves, nothing is going to stop them.

When You Love Someone

Set Healthy Boundaries!!!!There a lot of misconceptions about what boundaries are and do for relationships. We may feel that boundaries are unnecessary because our partner is supposed to already know and act on our needs and wants, or that they ruin the relationship or interfere with the spice. In reality, all healthy relationships have boundaries! A relationship can’t be healthy until both partners communicate their boundaries clearly, and the other person respects them. Healthy boundaries in a relationship don’t come naturally, nor do they come easily. Below is a list of both healthy aspects in a relationship:

Communicate your thoughts with one another. 

❤Never assume or guess your partner’s feelings

❤Follow through on what you say.

❤Take responsibility for your actions.

❤Be clear about your needs.

❤Be specific and direct.


Try the sandwich approach. This consists of a compliment, criticism, compliment. Starting with a compliment prevents your partner from getting defensive…“This primes them for a little criticism, they feel connected and comfortable enough to take it, and then it closes with a compliment.

If You Love Some One Let Them Sleep

“A Good Laugh and “Long Sleep” Is Cure For Anything In Life”

We spend approximately a third of our lives sleeping. Why?Because our bodies need sleep to function during waking hours. Although sleep is one of our basic daily needs, more than 60 percent of adults say their sleep needs are not being fully met during the week. Sleep, like nutrition and physical activity, is critical to our health, and when we don’t get enough, we sacrifice more than just a good night’s sleep.

How Much Sleep Do You Need?
Sleep requirements vary from person to person and how much sleep you need will vary depending on your age and especially by lifestyle and health.

Age Recommended Amount of Sleep per Night

•Newborns 16-18 hours

•Preschool-aged children 11-12 hours

•School-aged children At least 10 hours

•Teens9-10 hours

•Adults 18+ (including the elderly) 9-10 hours

  • Stay Alert-Good sleep allows your mind to regain focus and tackle those tricky mental challenges. It can also stimulate creativity.
  • Boost Memory-Sleeping is the most important time to shape memories and make the connections between events, feelings and experiences. In fact, sleep is a requirement to form new learning and memory pathways in the brain.
  • Fight Infection- Sleep is your body’s mechanism to ward off infection. When you don’t get enough, your immune system is weaker, making you more susceptible to illness.
  • Be Active-Energy levels after healthy sleep are higher, and your mental awareness is more acute. Good sleep is also tied to improved athletic performance, including greater speed, agility and reflexes.
  • Replenish-During sleep, your body repairs the damage caused by stress, ultraviolet rays and other harmful exposure, as well as muscle injuries and other traumas.

When you don’t get enough sleep over time, not only do you lose out on the key benefits of sleep, but you also become more vulnerable to a number of short- and long-term health risks.

Studies show that people who experience chronic sleep deprivation are at increased risk :

*Automobile accidents due to drowsy driving
*Occupational injury due to excessive sleepiness and decreased alertness
*Obesity due to an increased appetite caused by sleep deprivation
*Psychiatric conditions such as depression and substance abuse
Poorer quality of life
