Self Improvement


Miniature houses offer safe spaces

In psychological terms, dollhouses offer a safe space that promotes total control. For children, dollhouses present an environment at their command, even if their own world is chaotic or full of domestic sorrows.

In a world where most millennials are unable to get on the real property ladder, it's no surprise that dollhouses provide a bit of wish fulfilment.

Self Improvement


Burnout ≠ Depression
  • According to the International Classification of Diseases, burnout is not a medical condition, while depression is.
  • Burnout is a combination of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a reduced sense accomplishment specifically related to the workplace.
  • Burnout is a stepping stone to, but itself distinct from, depression.

Pretending we don't have any issues can be a form of denial. We want everyone to think we're doing great because we're afraid of the embarrassment and judgment that might come if people knew we're struggling. We also ignore our problems because they're overwhelming, and we don't know how to solve them.

But, while avoiding issues is easier, we know it isn't an effective long-term solution.

While Isaac Newton's description of gravity was good enough to detect Neptune's existence in the mid-1800s, Newton's law was not perfect. Astronomers discovered a mismatch between his law and the laws of nature.

This mismatch was resolved in 1915 when Albert Einstein published his theory of general relativity. Before this theory, physicists knew how to calculate a planet's gravitational pull, but they didn't understand why gravity behaved this way.

Sophrology isn't used only to treat burnout symptoms and anxiety. It also teaches us that every single one of us has the ability to take control of how we handle situations and feel about outcomes.

When we practice sophrology both individually and as a team, we will gain collective knowledge and strength in order to grow overall morale. As Phil Jackson once famously said "the strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team."
