Gorgeous 6k run complete! I love a weekday run as it means my routes are normally quiet with just the occasional pup - and when you're pretending you're in a music video with a killer playlist thats exactly what you need!
Pertama kali menginjakkan kaki di Kampung Lilinta, Raja Ampat, gue takjub dengan nilai dan norma keislaman yang dijaga dengan sangat baik oleh warga. Ngaji gak kenal waktu, mau pagi, siang, sore, malem, lu pasti bakal denger suara orang atau anak kecil ngaji entah dari rumah yang mana. Gak hanya itu, masih banyak hal yang menarik dari kampung ini sehingga gue bersama warga memutuskan untuk membuat kampung inj dikenal sebagai KAMPUNG NGAJI LILINTA
Teens often ask me how they can best help their friend - the one who is suffering from depression or anxiety. Teens have big hearts, and they worry about people they care about. I think it’s a great start learning how to empathise without trying to offer solutions, so my first answer is this; just understand that life is hard for them right now. That is enough. Next, let an understanding adult know that your friend is in need of support. It’s important not to set yourself on fire to keep the friend warm... or to switch up the metaphors... all too often I see caring souls get in the dark, cold waters of depression with the intent of rescuing someone else, and nearly drown themselves in the process. It’s best to avoid this. Therapists study for a long time to learn how to help people (seriously, like seven years) so you can’t beat yourself up if you find it exhausting or draining with zero years of training. So first, look after yourself. Stay well. Even better ways to help are by demonstrating resilience when things are difficult, listening without judgement, and keeping yourself outside and exercising - taking your friend along with you! Remember that exercise equals and betters antidepressants in the majority of the population. It’s a great place to start both your self-care program and your friend-care program. #lionheartpsychotherapy#teendepression#teen#depression#drowning#liftothersup#bethelight#gethelp#findatherapist#therapyworks#exercise#gooutside#beinnature#exercisebeatsdepression
"Tristan (@tristanbogaard) has been travelling on his bike for almost 4 years now, while inspiring many others (like me) to do the same.
This time, we have made it to Lousã, a village inland of Portugal surrounded by forests and protected ‘aldeias’. This morning we left early from our Bikotel to climb a steep pass which eventually took us above the clouds" | Pic and words by @belletoscan
