How Exercise Helps Your Brain
(http://ow.ly/eDQ430nlWOE)

Getting your blood moving and your heart pumping can be great for the muscles in your body, and that includes your brain. Exercise increases blood flow to the brain, reduces inflammation, and releases endorphins that can boost your focus and attention.

Eating Disorders That Come With Divorce
(http://ow.ly/4Z9330nlWOA)

Divorce comes with a lot of stress and intense emotions, which can put you more at risk for developing an eating disorder such as bulimia or anorexia. Because our diet has an impact on our mental and physical states, eating disorders can become cyclical in the damage done to your body.

#divorce #eatingdisorder #stress

Because not every divorce is the same, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment, especially when it comes to eating disorders. Instead, our friendly professionals at Trauma Recovery Services of Arizona can perform counseling to help you navigate your relationships in a more constructive way. To get started, give our office a call at (623) 207-8745 or book your appointment electronically: http://ow.ly/ThFO30nlWOB.

Are Married People Happier Than Single People?
(http://ow.ly/AaB730nlWOz)

There's often this perception that married individuals are happier than those who are single, but is there any truth to this claim? One study found that spouses were less likely to smoke and drink heavily, and suffered from fewer psychological issues than single individuals. This isn't, however, an endorsement to rush into marriage to improve mental health.

Modern work schedules often mean that lunch breaks often get turned into working lunches, which is unhealthy in many ways. Instead, simply taking the time to eat or drink without distractions can help control busy thoughts and reduce stress throughout your day.

How to Talk with Someone About Mental Health
(http://ow.ly/cNCO30nlWOj)

If someone approaches you about their mental health, it can feel overwhelming in many ways. Tips for when someone talks to you about their mental health include listening more than speaking and not sharing or gossiping about what you heard to others. If you encounter someone who tells you about self-harm or a suicidal plan, you should call 911 immediately.

What Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
(http://ow.ly/ZCqU30nlWOe)

Just about everyone experiences unhealthy thoughts from time to time, but when those thoughts become constant and harmful, it's important to learn how to control them. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psychological treatment that helps patients recognize and control their response to negative thoughts.
