I just came back from yoga, we had this amazing meditation with colors. Suddenly, I had a brilliant idea.

The Happiness Rainbow is your own rainbow, at the end of the day, you have collected colors. Draw your own rainbow and see which colors are missing. Can you still fix that? Try to get all the colors every day! I hope this will bring happiness to you! I really believe colors are stronger than words. You can write down how you feel, but why not draw it with the colors? 

Please reblog if you think this is a good idea, I really hope I can help people with this!

Today’s Junior Scientist Power Hour is all about ladies and their weird periods! What are periods? We don’t really know. But you can always tell when a woman is on her period because she has opinions that men don’t like, and sometimes they get mad!

It’s not like women get mad any other times, or that even if a woman is on her period, you should still listen to the words she says and not write them off as “crazy uterus talk”

Leading Men Age, Leading Women Don’t | Vulture

There are more charts if you click through.

It took me a long time to realise why the male age line isn’t straight, but it’s because the years along the bottom axis aren’t equally spaced. Good visualisation of a depressing point, otherwise.

"We gain a sense of who we are through narratives, the telling of stories to ourselves and others about what has happened to us. We form our identities through integrating our personal family histories with the legends of our culture. However, when our stories become habitually sad, rigid and repetitive, they may become the subject matter of the therapy hour."

"It’s the story of my career. If I have a male protagonist, it’s a studio movie, and if it’s a female protagonist, it’s an indie movie. That’s just how it is. It’s not about the studios. It’s about America and who goes to see movies. Women are interested in men and women, and men aren’t interested in the woman’s story. They just aren’t. There are exceptions, but by and large … I mean I do think that it’s feminizing for a guy to go see a movie with a female lead unless it’s Angelina Jolie shooting people or Zero Dark Thirty or something that feels like it’s in the male sphere. The devaluation of the traditional female roles or the traditional female approach, it starts to feel like this is what’s wrong with our country. Should I get off my high horse?”

What are other primary interventions that you guys use? It seems like everywhere I work is so CBT-y. I’m wanting to branch out more. I feel a connection with motivational interviewing and solutions-focused.
