What has become your new normal, and are you willing to change it?

  I was talking to a client last week who described a life changing event when he was 14.   He smoked weed for the first (and last) time, and since then he felt like he’s been watching life through a veil, or from behind glass.   He’s had heightened anxiety and struggles to relate to those around him.   He’s looked into it on google and found the terms “derealization” and “depersonalisation.”   “Derealization is an alteration in the perception…

Do you care about Future You?

We tend to care less about the future version of ourselves than we do about our present day selves.One donut today won’t hurt!! Will it?If one donut today becomes a sugary treat every day, that can build up over time to become a problem for our future selves. It’s the same with anything we put off or don’t do because we can’t be bothered/aren’t motivated enough to make the change today. Many of us only make a change when the pain of…
