Heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up.
Man bursts into tears. Says, “But doctor…I am Pagliacci.”
Don’t listen to the malicious comments of those friends who, never taking any risks themselves, can only see other people’s failures.
Why You’re Depressed & Not Getting Better

Some people say that depression is a “disease,” and that there’s a pill for it, but the pills don’t seem to work very well.
What if everything you’ve ever been told about this is wrong?
What if you’re receiving a message from within? An invitation to look at something in your life that needs your attention?
Look: I’m a clinical psychologist and, including my training years, I’ve been at this for well over a decade. I’ve worked in mental hospitals, chemical dependency centers, you name it — and I have never worked with someone who was depressed who didn’t have a reason, on some level, to feel that way.
They might not have known WHY they were depressed when they first came to see me, but it never took long before we uncovered what was causing the ache underneath.

If you have oily or acne-prone skin, most likely you’re using a cleanser that is a little on the acidic or antibacterial side of the pH scale. But if you have dry or sensitive skin you most likely are using a cleanser on the alkaline or softening side of the pH scale. A toner helps equalize the skin’s pH after cleansing, bringing it back to it’s natural level. We want our skin to be at it’s natural pH level as much of the time as possible.
Toners can also help remove any leftover makeup or oily residue. A toner’s purpose can be two fold, both balancing and extra cleansing. Toners don’t only have to be used with a cotton ball, they can also be spritzed all over your face and neck.
