Married at First Sight – Should We Be Allowing Kids To Watch Reality Television?

By |2019-03-20T11:07:26+08:00March 20th, 2019|Couples, Interpersonal Therapy, Men, Parents, Positive Psychology, Women, Young Adults|

It’s amazing how long our minds hang on to the negative stuff that has happened in our lives as well as fears we have had. We know that when something negative happens and it’s distressing to us, our mind tends to create an unconscious plan to avoid it (the distressing emotion) from ever happening again. [...]

If the word "meditation" makes you think of tie-died t-shirts and flowers in your hair, read on because things have changed!
