I know this board is for questions and comments, but I wanted to put some info/quotes I found that could help people here. Just trying to help ...
1.Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through
experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened,
ambition inspired and success achieved.
2. Within the panic cycle, it is not the body that responds incorrectly. The body responds perfectly to an exaggerated message from the mind. It is not the body that needs fixing, it is our thoughts, our images, our negative interpretation of our experiences that we must correct in order to gain control of panic. If we never told ourselves, in essence, "I'll lose control in that situation," then we would not be flipping on that unconscious emergency switch so often.
3. In recent decades, scientific studies have supported the concept that our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual selves are inseparable. Our mental, emotional and spiritual health are just as important in protecting us from chronic illness as diet and exercise. Feeling connected to yourself and others, having a sense of purpose in life, feeling hopeful, being loved and to love, all help you create the life you want for yourself and are the key ingredients for maintaining overall health.
