It’s okay to not be okay.
And there are things you can do when you’re able to recognize that you’re not okay.
This week, in honor of Memorial Day, we wanted to pay homage to those who have sacrificed, those who have served and those who have lost their lives in war. 😢
Whether the war is in someone’s mind or in the streets or another land, we can all recognize the pain and suffering that comes along with it. ❤️
Therefore, we want to take a pause.
A moment of silence.
To respect and accept the present moment. ☮️
Many people who serve in the armed forces come home “not the same.” They end up suffering and are not able to bounce back and assimilate into society.
I relate to this because my father is a Veteran who served in the Vietnam war. He struggled with many health issues throughout his life.
But what gives me hope and faith in humanity is having conversations like the one I recently had with Army Veteran and White House Chef, Andre Rush. 😃😃😃
We met at the beautiful Blue Star Memorial Highway rose garden in Burbank, California to discuss Mental Health Awareness Month and suicide prevention. ⭐️💙
Both mental health awareness and suicide prevention are extremely important topics that are slowly getting the attention necessary to make substantial change.
In today’s world, it’s so easy to fall prey to sadness, fear, or anger due to the constant bombardment of stress and distractions that invade our lives…
Plus the addition of blocked emotions and subtle traumas that we experience over the course of our lifetimes, it’s no wonder why we are where we are. 😳
What you may not know is that negative emotions, stress and trauma attack different organs of the body. This is why much of my work focuses on targeting specific organs and specific emotions in order to transform disease to ease.
How you feel matters. It is time to let go of the stigma around mental health, and embrace positive, life-affirming practices like Qigong. ☯️
We’re all in this together. There’s no shame in asking for help or realizing you can’t do it on your own. 🤝
Be sure to watch this week’s video because we are here for you.
Enjoy the Memorial Day weekend.
We love and will Qi you later,
Chris & Parisa
