Video Games and Mental Health

Posted by Erin Fischer on

For many of us growing up video games were something we played on the regular they allowed us to get competitive and provided us with an escape. From handheld gaming consoles like Gameboys, Nintendo DSs and now the Switch to consoles like PlayStation, Xbox and the Wii. Video games have been apart of our lives both in the past, present and will continue to be in the future. This doesn’t include computer games such as Neopets, Club Penguin, Minecraft and Fortnight or phone apps – remember the Pokémon Go obsession? All of which have fluctuated in popularity over the years.

New Years Resolutions

Posted by Erin Fischer on

New year, new me or so the saying goes. We’re a week into the new year and with that the resolutions people set to improve themselves are in the forefront of their minds.

People are still isolated from their loved ones, there’s been protests about vaccines and Covid and it seems that whenever you turn on the news there is yet another depressing story.

What to do When Christmas Brings up Conflicting Emotions

Posted by Erin Fischer on

Christmas is a time of joy, happiness, and spending time with your loved ones, or it should be. However, for some people it’s a time of anxiety, sadness, or the magic is just lost. As we get older the focus of Christmas changes instead of joy it brings stress and spending all the money on gifts that may or may not be appreciated and dealing with family members we only see once a year (and for good reason might I add!). For some people they spend the holiday alone (often) due to things out of their control and they feel isolated and with that they don’t want to acknowledge or celebrate Christmas. Of course, for some people such as doctors, nurses, and emergency personnel it’s just another day in the office and they spend it trying to make the best out of a bad situation.
