Online therapy can change your life. But, it is important to first determine if it is the right fit for you.
By taking the time and effort to do research, you can maximize potential success with therapy.
Here is a quick summary of my online therapy tips:
Online counseling platforms use encrypted communication methods, but you need to protectyour privacy onyour end as well.
Talk to your therapist behind closed doors, as you would talk to your therapist in real life. The lack of privacy is not only distracting, but also unsafe.
Financial limitations shouldn’t prevent anyone from finding help.
Checking in with your insurance company, asking for sliding-scale or reduced fees, or enlisting the help of a psychologist in training are choices that could help you fit therapy into your budget.
And while some options (like apps, self-help books, or podcasts) may not be a substitute for regular sessions with a mental health professional, there’s a lot you can do to improve your mental health.
We believe these benefits are a result of increased blood flow to your brain during exercise. It also tends to counter some of the natural reduction in brain connections that occur during aging, in effect reversing some of the problems.
Aim to exercise several times per week for 30–60 minutes. You can walk, swim, play tennis or any other moderate aerobic activity that increases your heart rate.
The first key to productivity: getting enough sleep. 7-8 hours of sleep a night will improve into your work, from sharper decision making and problem-solving, to better coping with change.
It is not just the quantity of sleep that matters, but quality as well. You should try to stick to a regular sleep pattern.
