With 2017 just around the corner, there's no better time to slow down, reflect, and try to incorporate some calm into our busy lives. If you're hoping to increase your focus on wellbeing in the new year, approaching 2017 mindfully is a great place to start. Practicing mindfulness means many different things to different people, from reducing your dependence on technology and increasing your awareness of the present moment, to decluttering in order to find calm.
The most frustrating thing when it comes to trying to talk about problems (even if it's not mental illness) is the other person makes it about themselves and that either they've "had it harder" or "your problem aren't as bad as *insert their problem*" Why do we feel we have to outweigh each other in who has or has had it the worst? We all go through and process things differently.
