It looks like those granola-loving hippies were right! Tree Hugging has real emotional and physical benefits - and you don’t have to be in the middle of a forest to seek them out!
Science has proven that everything has its own vibrational rate. Trees and plants happen to have vibrational properties that promote health and well-being in ‘beings’ - so go on! Hug a tree! Hug three!
Side note: If you’re hugging trees in your neighborhood - nighttime is a good cover. Not every
One of my most favorite Tribal Tendencies is that of empathy. The ability to actually feel what another human is feeling. It allows us to feel connection and depth to others where some might feel nothing. It's a beautiful gift that also holds its own burden. When you can't turn it off and you become overwhelmed by the emotions of others, not even able to tell the difference between what you're feeling and what emotions are bouncing around the room/country/world from the colle

"I have never stopped loving ADHD. I have the condition myself, and I treat hundreds of people who have
I have always said about life, “It shouldn’t be this hard…it isn’t this hard for other people…this isn’t normal”. I always felt misunderstood. I was always called weird (which I was totally ok with…weird is a compliment, I think), but I just didn’t really understand what people thought was weird about me. I have a tendency to be anxious. I am completely overtaken by the moods of others. I procrastinate. I can’t pay bills and keep track of finances, and have no emotional t
