Addressing Teens and Young Adults after the 2016 Election



Many of us, young, middle aged, older and very old have questions and concerns about the election and the future of our country.

One of the most helpful things I have read is from Dr Offutt's blog.  Dr Offutt is a physician in Philadelphia with a passionate interest in reaching teens through social media.

Here is her answer to last week's events. Check it out and send me feedback on how your conversations with friends and family are going.  Most important is to keep talking and de-stress in ways we all know can work.

Speaking of de-stressing.  Here is a useful article "Breathe. Exhale, Repeat. The Benefits of Controlled Breathing" from the New York Times, published the day after the election.  Ever a fan of using breath to manage emotions, stress and sleep, I encourage everyone to practice using breath as the always-with-you method of relaxation and release.

De-stressing and relaxing are not capitulating.  Rather they are savvy ways to re-arm oneself for the terrain ahead.

William Sloane Coffin (1924-2006), a charismatic and powerful chaplain and a peace activist, once said the following:

"The world is too dangerous for anything but truth 
and too small for anything but love."

Acne inflammation reveals to you that you have unpredictable propensities or that there is an absence of learning concerning eating routine and healthy skin.Teens and young adults are among the most well-known gathering of people enduring with skin inflammation. Particularly skin inflammation can show an irregularity in hormones, eat less carbs or potentially rest. I find a very good website for the London escorts, If you want you can visit this site.
