Surviving stress without triggering mental illnessNote: I am not a mental health clinician. I am only a scientist. The advice offered here should not replace advice given by a qualified professional.
Hello everyone!
So it's the holiday time, and for many of us it's also the end of the semester, the end of a grant or project period, or the end of the fiscal year. All of these "ends" come with stress. It's well-known that stress can exacerbate mental illness-- for example, through triggering mood instability or symptoms of depression or anxiety. Thus, it is helpful to have some tips for handling stress in ways that are more conducive to health.
Here are some tips that have been helpful in my life.
1. Get enough sleep. First and foremost, getting enough sleep every night can help prevent your mood from becoming unstable (especially for those of us with bipolar disorder), and it can be helpful in dealing with anxiety. We can think and solve problems more clearly when we are well-res
Do you love stock?Hey photomanipulators and others who use resources as inspiration, reference, or other vehicles of creation!
Do you ever come across a wonderful piece of stock that sparks some fire of creativity within you, and when you do, do you tuck it away for use at a later date? Or-- are you like me, and you quickly fire up Photoshop (or your program of interest) and play around with it?
YES? Of course you have!!!
You've come to the right place.
Now . . . do you love Daily Deviations (DDs)? Do you love seeing them, drinking them in, watching others get them? What about getting them yourself? And how often do you suggest DDs to the gallery moderators, or Community Volunteers (CVs)?
Here's the key: Did you know that DDs are also given to stock and resource deviations? Yes, it's true! And, fortunately, we have 3 whole CVs dedicated entirely to stock and resources!  And here's the best part: They would love to have your DD suggestions.
If you love and appreciate the amazing work that our stock

  GrimFace242 MV for LiteratureOkay, so the Grim one has taken on another project.  I know, I know.  It's awesome!  :eager:  I've decided to join up at seniormentors as a Mentor with a focus on Literature.  What I excel at is planning and plotting.  So that's what I'm offering as a service.  If you're a deviant that is looking for assistance in plotting out their short story or novel.  You know, someone to shoot ideas off, a double check on character motivation, is there enough story in your story, will your subplot overtake your main plot.  That kinda stuff.  Not beta reading/proofreading; to be clear.  Just to give forewarning, I'm a serial plotter but I'm quite willing to tone it down to help others out.
If you would like to engage in a mentor session with me I can be reached in one of three ways

So we've all over-indulged during Christmas? Perhaps! Whether you have or haven't, this recipe will possibly be a great new year dessert for you. You can substitute some of the main ingredients such as 'Soft Cheese' for something like 'Quark' which is available at 0% fat. The recipe below is what I made over the Christmas period and is therefore the more indulgent version... So you've guessed it - this months theme is Chee

  I Need Help Guys :(Hey guys,
My husband and I are in an awful financial situation right now, and I need to bring in commissions to help. We currently have bills overdue that we don't have money to pay for. My parents have been giving us food to eat, and it's just been a really horrible start to our year. We need $950 to be able to pay our past due amounts and be able to cover the bills for the rest of the month.
:star: If you can't buy, please take the time to advertise for me! I will give a three deviation feature to everyone who features my commissions, and I will refresh the feature once a week. You will need to do a fresh advertisement each week if you would like to be included. I will also include your commissions if you happen to be selling as well. :)
:star: Those who make a purchase will receive the feature as well, and you will have one additional deviation feature for every $10 you spend. :D Also I guarantee that your purchase will be finished at the due date I give you or I will

  SA Interview - ninebarkCongratulations to ninebark for receiving seniority on July 7th, 2014! :squee:

What is it like to be a part of the senior hut? How do you feel about receiving the Medal? How did you receive the news?
I saw it immediately on checking dA in the morning.
I've been on dA for a while, but most people that I know who've received the medal next to their names are incredible movers and shakers - and an inspiration. It's humbling to realize that someone thought highly enough of me to recommend me to staff.
What's it like? Well, the superpowers are pretty cool: I seem to have gained the ability to control the direction in which water swirls down the drain, a black-belt mastery over wiggling my ears, and the power to make my dog allergic to grass. I'm not a fan of having to shave off five inches of c
  SA Interview - Eitvys200Congratulations to Eitvys200 for receiving seniority on July 7th, 2014! :squee:

What is it like to be a part of the senior hut? How do you feel about receiving the Medal? How did you receive the news?
It feels great and I am really happy I received it. The news took me by surprise because I didn't check dA that day and dekorAdum messaged me about random things on skype and then told me to check dA. I obviously was shocked :giggle: That day could not have gone any better then it did. :dummy:
Sounds like you had an amazing day! :love: I heard you are the founder of the DeviantartWikia. What made you starting it? What was your idea behind it to start the Wikia?
I just founded the wiki group not the wiki itself :giggle: I found the dA wiki abandoned with no activ
  Thank you, and 2 important groupsThank you from the bottom of my heart
I know I'm really late in saying this (my head has been reeling the past 10 days), but I want publicly to acknowledge and thank fourteenthstar, Moonbeam13, and the CV team for honoring me with this Deviousness Award for January and/or writing such moving things about me. I cannot tell you all how much your words meant, and I am really honored and humbled to have received them. I love you so much.

To those of you who have added me to your watch list, I hope I won't disappoint. I appreciate your interest in my words and my work, but I hope to direct your attention also to mental-health.

  Empowerment and Good Mental Health + A ChallengeWelcome to the year of YOU.
At mental-health, we are striving to share great information and empowering knowledge with our members, just as we learn an amazing amount of things from you. As a group, we are committed to making 2015 all about us (ALL of us-- that includes YOU!). We will be focusing on empowerment in the coming months with the goals of helping us find peace for ourselves and also helping us help others around us in this journey toward good mental health.
What you'll be seeing in the coming months
We'll be posting more articles and helpful links, some with an emphasis on "What is this disorder" but more with an emphasis on "You are okay, and here's how to cope." We are also brewing another contest. We would like to bring the group closer and do some more problem-solving activities as a group. Finally, we hope to have some inspiring stories to share.
