Changing habits can be difficult, but sometimes it is absolutely necessary so you can move ahead with your life. Getting stuck in bad behavior patterns is easy when you are struggling with problems.

A number of years back I went through a life crisis. That started me on a quest for tools that could help me set boundaries and change the way I thought about myself and my life. [···]

psychologist and co-owner of the Mindfit app

For most of us, life consists of more than just good times, and sooner or later we can expect to be struck by a crisis. What can you do when you lose your footing – when you lose perspective and your life spins out of control?

A life crisis can take many forms, from the breakup of a relationship, to one of your loved ones being afflicted by a serious illness or death, to losing a job, being betrayed, or major life changes, such as the transition to retirement. [···]

Questions for reflection

Have you ever had a question that has meant a lot to you, and that has caused you to change your focus? Or are there things that have been said to you that you remember for the rest of your life – that have shaped you as a person?

I have. My doctor once asked me a simple and meaningful question many years ago. I often think about it, because it is an important reminder that I need to choose what I want to prioritize – what I want to do more or less of.

For me there was one important question that helped change my life:

What gives you energy in your daily life, Hilde? Where do you get new energy from? Do you get more energy when you are at home, or are you drained of energy?

You can “train” your brain and thought patterns, just like the rest of your body. It requires some effort, just like it does when we train to become more physically fit, or when we go to school to learn something new.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. – Aristotle

Highly sensitive – Finding strength in your sensitivity

written by Lian Kirksæther

At the outset, being sensitive is a strength, but it can easily be turned into something negative in our society.

Today’s society is characterized by deadlines and time constraints, and places ever increasing demands on the individual, which combined are not a good fit for sensitive individuals. This causes more and more people to be stressed and sick, and increases burnt-out, because the nervous system in sensitive individuals has a lower threshold for activation, and these individuals take in more information from the environment than average. [···]
