You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!

This made me cry so much.

This actually made me cry. Something like this can be hopeful? SubhanAllah

I really needed this right now. This actually made me cry. I lost it at the “Everybody reaches a breaking point” part. Jazakallah khairun to whoever created this, seriously.

7/11 breathing. A skill to use for anxiety. It’s recommended to do it for 10-15 minutes. Like any other skill it does require a lot of practice. I advice that you practice it when you are feeling calm so you are ready in a time of need. If you lose count, which is easily done, simply start again until you do 15 minutes. It will also help with distraction even if you don’t get it right the first hundred times.

Breathing out longer than you breathe in actually activates your parasympathetic nervous system!

Anxiety is your sympathetic nervous system (“fight or flight”) setting off all the alarms, while breathing like this will set the parasympathetic system (“rest and digest”) into action shutting off the alarms and settling your nerves.

Other things that help: laughing, checking out what’s going on around you (moving head and eyes to orient to your surroundings), getting curious about something.

Take care, be safe.

This is so interesting anxiety is shitty but the “mechanics” (wrong word I’m tired) of it is fascinating imo. Like you get all this adrenaline and you can draw connections to ages ago when humans used fight or flight to survive on a daily basis.

I also find cold things help a lot. So a cold shower or holding/eating ice.

Also try to press besides your neck near the clavicle, it stimulates your vague nerve and so your parasympathetic sistem, it helps sooo much

hi friends , do you go to college or university ?? if so , i’m askin for you’re help please !!!

i want to book a lot of touring this spring, including house shows and all kinds of fun wacky stuf.. but i want the main route to be booked aroundd well-funded shows… and the main way i get well-funded shows is from schools, becaus they usualy have a big budget for performers & guest lecturers.

usualy at colleges i do a poetry reading, with an open mic before me or performers from a slam poetry club.. i’ve also been doing workshops about social media , like how to use social media for activism and art, or how to use it to build a following /support yourself as an artist.. i can also do lectures about all the possibilities of “internet poetry” that have opened up in recent years.. at most schools i do a performance + workshop now !

most college students dont know HOw to get me booked at their school / get funding.. but if you are interested and willing to do a little work, then me and especialy my booking agent Scott can help you do it.. basicly you need to convince a few key people in charge.. sometimes you have to get a student group involved as a “sponsor”.. sometimes it takes persistence, other times its surprisingly easy ! but we know the process and can help you

if you do this i would be so excited and grateful.. i would love to chill with you for a day or two at your college.. i can also do a DIY show in town if theres an art space or reading series that would appreciate that. basicly the college bookings help a LOT , and im very very grateful if you’re wiling to help

if you wana help book me at your school , please email me at boosthousebooking@gmail.com, mention which school you’re at, and any other ideas you have.. i’ll add scott to the email thread.. then in most cases you’ll call scott, so he can walk you thru the nuances of your particular school (its hard to explain it all over email)

thank u so much for considerin this !!
this email account is just run by me currently, so feel free to send any related questions here: boosthousebooking@gmail.com
