Here is a link to Wayne's latest post regarding the book How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk.
Here is an idea that has been in my head and on my heart as of late. I have had thoughts regarding acts of virtue and the power that hold. Virtueous acts can be very self-empowering. Yes indeed virtuous acts are powerful acts that are beneficial to others; however we seldom view the therapuetic effects of virtue on ones self.
What I'm driving at is that for those that struggle with anxiety/depression or low self-worth; possibly acts of virtue could be very helpful in treating these issues.
Here is the definistion of virtue:
In looking at all 5 of the definitions of virtue it is easy to understand how virtous acts can be very therapuetic. In many cases these acts take the focus off of the depressed state and focuses it on something larger than ourselves. Acts of virtue help to stop the negative self talk that often occurs in those that struggle with common depression or self-worth.
Give some thought to these points and in this season of virtue try focusing on others and living larger than yourself. You may be surprised!
Here is an article that I found to be very interesting although not very surprising. Maybe I like it because it supports my opinions on children's sleeping habits.
