Spread positivity and reach out!

Uncategorized May 19, 2020
Helplessness is a feeling far too many are feeling right now.

"Beyond the bodily harm that comes from getting sick is the psychological harm that comes from mandated social isolation. The sense of disconnection that follows harms well-being, creates a psychological stressor that impairs our immune systems, decreases cardiovascular health and increases the likelihood of death.

Psychology is generally accepted as having a scientific basis.
Where spirituality is frequently seen as non scientific and even frowned down upon.
Here are 6 of the insights regarding the relationship between psychology and spirituality highlighted in this article:
🧠 Psychology, as you might know, is the study of the mind or the soul. Significantly, in the West, psychology is only referred to as the study of the mind, whereas the “soul” part is completely ignored.
🧠 Psychology, therefore, deals with the mind: the way we think, consciously form concepts, understand the world around us and make sense of it.
💗 Spirituality, on the other hand is frequently regarded as a practical tool to achieve self-growth, because it paves the way for transcendence.
