With the daily coronavirus death toll hitting an all-time high (nearly 3,700 every 24 hours), India requires immediate COVID-19 relief in the form of oxygen.
MyYogaTeacher, who originally partnered with GiveIndia to provide meals for hungry children in India, has temporarily altered their focus to offer Oxygen Drive classes. This initiative donates 100 percent of class proceeds to GiveIndia to help supply India with the oxygen and ventilators needed amidst this deadly wave.
Each Oxygen Drive class is just $5 and connects users directly with an expert yoga instructor in India who has donated their time in support of this important cause.

Day 1
Tumblr media
My name is Heather and that's me on the right with the sunglasses.
I'm 32 and live in a very rural area of Arkansas.
And I'm fat. Like really fat. 364lbs to be exact. That's okay though because I'm going to change that. Why all of a sudden is this time any different from the other millions of times that I've tried to lose pounds? A few reasons:
1) I have a little cousin who just turned 4 that I've gotten very close to. His dad, my uncle, just took a job in California. Guys, I'm too fat to fit in a plane seat. Besides, how can I play with a little boy when I get winded getting groceries.
2) My health is declining. I have type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, chronic muscle cramps, and random swelling in my feet, ankles, and legs. I'm 32! I should be out living life! Instead, I'm stuck on the sidelines watching everyone else have the time of their lives.
I'm not delusional. The weight isn't going to just fall off in the time frame that I want it to. This is going to be a very slow and very painful process. It's not easy to lose weight. It's even harder to lose weight when you have a mental disease called Bipolar Disorder.
I've had my disorder under control successfully for 5 years now. The price with having it under control means that I have to take powerful mood stabilizers that the main side effect is weight gain and difficulty losing weight.
My goal for the rest of 2021 is to lose 30lbs. I want to weigh 334 by Jan 1, 2022.
The point of writing this all out publically in a blog is to maybe gain a little bit of support. I'm shit at self-motivation and sticking to things. Maybe having some people (even if it's only 1) hold me accountable with my eating and exercise routine will help me be successful this time around.
So leave me tips, tricks, and ENCOURAGEMENT! Ask questions, I don't bite.

Is your teenager much less social than they used to be? Do they express deep concerns about being embarrassed or disliked? This could be a sign of anxiety. Pay close attention to their interactions with others. If they are withdrawn or lean heavily on you to interact for them, intervention may be necessary.
Routine Things Suddenly Feel Overwhelming
Does it seem your young person resists participation in the things they once enjoyed? Perhaps they feel worried about the pace of their progress in a sport or activity. Perhaps they were injured or sick and worry about returning to the activity. Maybe they feel ill-prepared to continue with a group or at a certain skill level.
As a result, your teen may avoid what they previously loved to do. This self-limiting behavior can lead to regrets later. If you sense that they miss or long to participate but hold themselves back, encourage them to share their worries. Then brainstorm ways to comfortably remain involved and build the skills or knowledge they need to face their fear.
New Experiences Seem Too Risky
Does your teen dig in their heels, suddenly change their mind, or require inordinate amounts of reassurance when trying something different? If their response seems overblown or they remain completely avoidant, it may be that a specific fears or phobias keep your child from seeking out new experiences.
A past trauma or major life transition can give rise to fears about trying new things. Pay attention to ways your teen’s life is becoming very closed off and hemmed in due to anxiety. Seek support and encourage communication to ensure they get to the root of their fears and they aren’t cemented as they move forward into adulthood.
Excitability or Irritability Are More Frequent
Unfortunately, anxiety is often linked to nervousness, negativity, and racing thoughts. This of course, has a detrimental impact on your teen’s developing brain and perceptions. This can lead to changes in your teen’s moods and self-image.
If your teens is anxious, they may behave in ways that seem reactive and “hyper” or irritable and surly. Pay attention to their interactions and the way others notice they are being treated by your child. Getting a handle on anxiety early can prevent bigger issues with recklessness, impulsivity, and depression down the line.
Sleep Does Not Come Easy
Anxiety and healthy sleeping patterns are often at odds. When night falls, many young people become laser focused on their concerns. If your teen is wired and active at night but very tired during the day, worry could be a problem.
Moreover, staying asleep through the night can become sources of worry in and of themselves. You may find that bedtime becomes a source of conflict and contention. Nightmares, late-night phone cellphone activity, or a desire to talk things through late at night may be frequent issues.
Helping Your Adolescent Manage Their Anxiety
Finally, it can be tough for teenagers to get a handle on anxiety on their own. Your teen needs you to provide context for their fears and resources for comfort and recovery. As a parent, reaching out to a therapist is often a good first step to ensure that you and your child make appropriate and productive choices early on.
If you suspect your teen is suffering from anxiety, please don’t hesitate to reach out for more information about teen counseling and contact us soon for a consultation.

Good evening, I have a question for non-cis people: How do you feel about cis people using they/them?
I realised I really like they/them pronouns, I think they're really cool, but I identify as cisgender. I keep thinking about trying out she/they pronouns or something but I'm worried that might be harmful to the community.
I hope you have a lovely night and thank you for opinions!

The theory of attachment styles between parents and children has long been studied in psychology, education, and any field that deals with human development. The fact is that the implications of attachment theory impact each and every one us, not just in childhood, but into our adult years as well. At the very least, most of us can look back to how we were raised and how the habits, beliefs, and behaviors we have were shaped by our earliest caregivers. What we don’t always consider is how we dealt with the most difficult things: the criticism of a parent, the comparison with a sibling or others, the lack of availability of a caring adult when we needed one. Looking at such experiences, without necessarily blaming our parents or caregivers, is key in understanding the attachment wounding that has also shaped us. Left unaddressed, such wounding can have a major impact on various aspects of our life.
Do you know the signs of an unprocessed attachment wound? Perhaps you never knew to even consider that early pain was at the root of your difficulties with other people. The truth is, many people who are hurting, lonely, or struggling with insecurity are unaware that trauma in their earliest relationships is relevant.
What was your attachment to your primary caregivers like? If you find that you’re repeatedly troubled by connection, trust, and security issues with loved ones, it might be time to dig deeper into your past attachments.
Key Signs You Need to Heal from an Attachment Wound: Your Relationships are Damaged by Anxiety
Anxiety in relationships is a clear marker of attachment wounding. Many people have one of two common experiences. You live with the anxiety of getting too close. Or you live with the anxiety of not feeling close enough.
Worry, panic, rumination, and controlling behavior may result as you try to manage feelings of emotional suffocation or abandonment. As a result, attachment wounds can present as anxious-avoidant relationship behavior. You might become either the pursuer or distancer with the relationship partner becoming the opposite. This connection becomes problematic without at least one of you doing the work to become more secure.
Unhelpful Thoughts and Emotions Get in Your Way
Paying attention to the way you experience relationships internally is vital to healing your attachment wounds. The reality is relationships and negativity are linked together for you. Thus, you may need help from a therapist to uncover the depth to which your thoughts and feelings are impacted. However, you can start now trying to explore your thought patterns. Do the following happen in relationships?
Negative self-talk and self-criticism are ongoing in your relationships. You may punish yourself with thoughts of not being good enough, unlovable, or somehow at fault for not having healthy connections.
You have “trust issues.” Either you trust too easily or not at all. If you find that you are drawn to people who have already given you a good reason not to trust, an attachment wound may be at play. Similarly, not being able to trust, even in long-standing relationships with trustworthy people indicates early relationship trauma.
Relationships never live up to your ideals, hopes, or most positive beliefs. They succumb to negativity and a sense of unfulfillment.
Your Relationship History is Telling
A key indicator of attachment wounding is a history of unhealthy relationships. This can reveal itself in a variety of connections. As you look back, are any of the following true?
You distanced yourself or avoided relationships.
You constantly wanted or pursued a relationship.
Descriptors like “love or sex addiction” might characterize your past.
Looking back, you think of your family life as idyllic or perfect.
Looking back, you view your family life as a huge failure of neglect and disappointment.
Descriptors like “hurtful,” “abusive,” “indifferent,” and more characterize your earliest relationships.
You Cope with Relationship Pain Unproductively
Unaddressed, attachment wounds live on in various areas of your life. Think about how you’ve coped through the years. What you did to cope as a child or survive as a young person may be the same as the coping strategies you’re using now. Chances are they aren’t serving you well.
Often attachment wounds lead to coping via substance abuse, eating disorders, or the development of anxiety disorders. It’s worth examining the roots of these issues if you are suffering.
Seek Out A Therapeutic Relationship to Heal
Finally, a difficult childhood, due to unmet relational needs, can seem so unfair. Similarly, difficult adult relationships, due to unresolved attachment pain, don’t have to continue. Whether you’ve been afraid, angry, or simply avoiding the past, you deserve better. Allow yourself a future free of attachment wounds.
A relationship with a compassionate and qualified therapist is important in helping you embrace more fulfilling and beneficial personal relationships. To heal well and fully is possible with commitment and support. We are here for you. Please read more about trauma therapy and contact us soon for a consultation.
