Word of the Month: Explicit Memory

Long-term memory that is able to be recalled on demand.  Example, purposefully retrieving info. for an exam.

Fun Fact:

It has been estimated that the human brain has a memory capacity of 2.5 petabytes (2.5 million gigabytes) when compared to a computer.  This is akin to roughly 300 hours of TV shows!  How does your computer compare?

‘Tis the Season!

How to Manage Your Mental Health During the Holidays:

  • Stay in Therapy – Holidays can stir up difficult emotions.  This is your time to discuss anything that might come to the surface.
  • Mindfulness – Take a few moments of time and focus on you.  Find a quiet place and concentrate on your breathing.  Slow, deep breathes in and slowly exhale.  What are your thoughts?  What is your body telling you in this moment?
  • Do NOT Rely on Drugs/Alcohol – Studies have shown that substance use can actually increase symptoms of anxiety and worsen depression.
  • Soak Up the Sun – Get out of the house and take a short walk outside.  Enjoying the outdoors have been shown to decrease stress, increase concentration, improve mental energy, & lower inflammation.
  • Set Realistic Expectations – Don’t dwell on the past year’s “should haves.”  Instead, set reasonable goals that can easily be added onto.
