I'd like to share a rather unusual, free, aces prevention resource...parenting tips bumper stickers! Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo, CA nonprofit, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to businesses, organizations, clinics, schools, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times!

Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting and prevent child abuse five, ten, twenty, fifty years down the road. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations begin and often a phone is used to take a photo of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see!

Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.

Dr. Nicole Linardi is a bilingual (English/Spanish) Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. She specializes in working with victims of violence (sexual abuse, domestic violence, and human trafficking).

Love is everywhere!
.
But how come sometimes it’s so challenging to identify? How come sometimes I don’t feel the love? How come sometimes my friends, family and partner tell me I don’t know how to love? 🤔
.
That may very well be because the premise of how you’re showing up in your relationships and showing love is based on fantasy, expectations, or false images influenced by books, movies, songs, culture, etc.
.
However, most of us already have a way of showing and interpreting receiving love. The question at hand is, how can I know what it is? And how can I identify it? And what’s the point?
.
Dr. Chapman entrepreneured the love languages that most of us know today.

Are you THAT person?
Where you want your partner to be your therapist, masseuse, doctor, best friend, trainer, house keeper 😂 and so on… sometimes it’s too much! Be mindful of your expectations for you partner.
1) are your expectations realistic?
2) can you obtain most of your needs from you, yourself and your partner? How can you find a healthy and realistic balance as to not disappoint yourself and overwhelm your partner?
*Make an individual and/or couples there appointment where you can discover what can work best for you and your significant other! 💕

When you pick a partner, you pick a story. So what kind of story are you going to write? You are the editors of your life stories. Write well and edit often. And remember ... a life story is not a love story. You can love a lot more people than you can make a life with.

What are binaural beats? When you hear two tones — one in each ear — that are slightly different in frequency, your brain processes a beat at the difference of the frequencies. This is called a binaural beat.
.
What health benefits are binaural beats claimed to have?

Binaural beats are claimed to induce the same mental state associated with a meditation practice, but much more quickly. In effect, binaural beats are said to:

reduce anxiety
increase focus and concentration
lower stress
increase relaxation
foster positive moods
promote creativity
help manage pain
Meditation is the practice of calming the mind and tuning down the number of random thoughts that pass through it.

A regular meditation practice has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, slow down the rate of brain aging and memory loss, promote mental health, and lengthen attention span. Practicing meditation regularly can be quite difficult, so people have looked to technology for help.

Binaural beats between 1 and 30 Hz are alleged to create the same brain wave pattern that one would experience during meditation. When you listen to a sound with a certain frequency, your brain waves will synchronize with that frequency.

The theory is that binaural beats can help create the frequency needed for your brain to create the same waves commonly experienced during a meditation practice. The use of binaural beats in this way is sometimes called brain wave entrainment technology.

Introduction - What are Binaural Beats?.

Binaural beat therapy is an emerging form of sound wave therapy. It makes use of the fact that the right and left ear each receive a slightly different frequency tone, yet the brain perceives these as a single tone.
.
What Categories of frequencies are there and how do they effect the brain?
〰️Delta pattern: Binaural beats in the delta pattern operate at a frequency of 0.1–4 Hz with links to a dreamless sleep. These frequencies are linked to deep sleep, healing, recovery and rest.
〰️Theta pattern: Binaural beats in the theta pattern range in the frequency of 4–8 Hz. Theta patterns contribute to improved meditation, creativity, and sleep in the rapid eye movement (REM) phase. Theta waves are especially useful for “power naps”
〰️Alpha pattern: Binaural beats in the alpha pattern are at a frequency of 7–14 Hz and may encourage relaxation, learning, flow states and stress reduction.
〰️Beta pattern: Binaural beats in the beta pattern are at a frequency of 14–30 Hz. This frequency range may help promote focussed attention, concentration, problem solving and increased energy
〰️Gamma pattern: This frequency pattern accounts for a range of 30–50 Hz. These frequencies are useful for high level information processing, peak awareness and memory recall.

Do you enjoy music?
Do you listen to a specific type/genre of music depending on your mood?
.

Music is said to enhance intelligence and focus, improve mental health, and boost the immune system as well as self-esteem and confidence. It can be used to relax, to boost and lift our mood, or to improve concentration. Music can also be used to aid in insomnia, helping to encourage and induce a deeper sleep.
.

Researchers from the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development have found that music increases memory and retention as well as maximises learning capabilities. Our brains trigger particular emotions, memories and thoughts, which often leads to more positive effects toward mental health.
.

Research shows the benefits of music therapy for various mental health conditions, including depression, trauma, and schizophrenia (to name a few). Music acts as a medium for processing emotions, trauma, and grief—but music can also be utilized as a regulating or calming agent for anxiety or for dysregulation.
.
Stay tuned for more on brainwaves and mental health!

An important part of keeping fit and healthy is to take care of your own mental health. There are plenty of things you can do to help make sure you keep yourself mentally healthy.

➡️ Get plenty of sleep
Sleep is really important for our physical and mental health. Sleep helps to regulate the chemicals in our brain that transmit information. These chemicals are important in managing our moods and emotions. If we don't get enough sleep, we can start to feel depressed or anxious.

The Sleep Foundation provides tips on how to sleep well, and to overcome problems with sleeping.

➡️ Eat well
Eating well isn't just important for our bodies, but it's also important for our minds. Certain mineral deficiencies, such as iron and vitamin B12 deficiencies, can give us a low mood. Try to eat a balanced diet. If you find you're a particularly stressed or anxious person, you should try limiting or cutting out caffeine as this can make you feel jittery and anxious.

➡️ Avoid alcohol, smoking and drugs
Drinking and smoking aren't things which we always associate with withdrawal symptoms, but they can cause some which impact on your mental health. When you've had a few drinks you can feel more depressed and anxious the next day, and it can be harder to concentrate. Excessive drinking for prolonged periods can leave you with a thiamine deficiency. Thiamine is important for our brain function and a deficiency can lead to severe memory problems, motor (coordination) problems, confusion and eye problems. If you smoke, between cigarettes your body and brain go into withdrawal which makes you irritable and anxious.

Other drugs will often leave you in withdrawal and can often cause very low moods and anxiety. More severe effects of drugs include paranoia and delusions. There is some research that suggests drug use is related to developing mental disorders like schizophrenia.
