I always have problems, what should I do? Jo asks, Mishu answers

Dear Mishu:

I feel like I always have problems, and I don’t know what to do. What advice do you have for me?
From,
Jo

Dear Jo:

You can’t prevent problems, but you can control what they mean…. My problem is that I can’t ever catch a squirrel. I could think “I’m a failure, I never catch a squirrel” or I could think “Every day I get to chase squirrels, which I love, and take on the ultimate challenge!” …Which way would you rather live? #DeepThoughts
Love,

You have 300-400 minutes a day when you’re not working or sleeping. Spend them on what matters to you and they’ll feel like everything.

I am job searching and it’s so discouraging, Jasmin asks, Mishu answers..

Dear Jasmin,
You are not your job. You are not what the people who you hope will hire you think you are. You’re a complete human being. Can you find things to do that remind you of that and make yourself feel good and successful?

So sad (and angry) about the way humans treat each other. 20-45 million in SLAVERY around the world in 2017! How can we draw attention to this?  – Mishu

How can I stop feeling bad about myself, Jo asks, Mishu answers

How can I stop feeling bad about myself, Jo asks, Mishu answers

Dear Jo:
Stop thinking about your thoughts…. being mad at yourself or worrying about feeling bad just makes it worse….  Just let yourself feel bad or think negative thoughts for a little while, & then try to move on. Let me know how it goes.  #NowIsNow

The Inside Story

Feeling bad about yourself isn’t fun, but it’s part of life sometimes. Mishu’s message is to stop feeling bad about feeling bad — it only makes it worse.

Negative emotions are a normal part of life

Everyone feels bad about themselves at some point. It’s normal. But we make it worse when we worry about our worries, or feel bad about our bad feelings.

Anxiety often takes the form of worrying not just about tangible things, but about the fact that we’re worrying. Or, if you tend to be critical of yourself, getting angry at yourself when you find yourself doing that. read more

Dog barking too much: Is there such a thing? Snoopy asks, Mishu answers

Dog barking too much: Is there such a thing? Snoopy asks, Mishu answers

Dear Snoopy, I do the same thing! It makes me feel strong & powerful. My humans have a 2 bark rule, which lets me express myself without giving them a headache. Maybe you can try that? #BeYourself

The Inside Story

Have you ever really looked at your dog barking?  Research experts have established that dogs really do think and have emotions – and if you look at your dog when they’re barking at visitors, neighbors, or noises outside, they clearly feel great about themselves. And that’s important — we wouldn’t want our dogs to get frustrated and stressed. read more

Trouble studying because of your phone? Bruno asks, Dear Mishu answers

Trouble studying because of your phone? Bruno asks, Dear Mishu answers

Dear Bruno:  Are you a doctor on call?  A parent whose kid is outside?  If not – put your phone in another room and turn it to silent!…. When you’ve finished your studies, maybe you’ll be *important* enough to need to be reached at all times….  Do you think I’d be able to learn a new trick with squirrels running around?

The Inside Story

Our smartphones bring us a lot of convenience, fun, and connection to the world. But they can also be a source of stress.  This is especially true when they distract us from doing what we need to do to reach our goals. Cell phones can also pose some health risks, so it’s a good idea in general not to have them near or on your body at all times. read more

My Dad has been sick for a while. Do you have any advice? Luna asks, Mishu answers

My Dad has been sick for a while. Do you have any advice? Luna asks, Mishu answers

Dear Luna,
I’m sorry your Dad is sick and it’s so hard. You are doing something beautiful by caring for your father. This is something to be very proud of. Set a reminder every day to remember this, and feel proud. Maybe it will give you the strength to carry on.

Love,
Mishu

The Inside Story

Family trouble, especially an illness in the family can be very taxing. It can take a toll emotionally, physically, and financially. It can cause a lot of stress. This is especially the case when the illness is serious, lasts for a long time, prevents the sick person and even family members from working. That kind of thing is very hard for a family to deal with. read more
