Helping others helped Silvana improve her health. Despite feeling unwell, by doing something achievable, like writing a blog to help others on a similar journey, she stopped focussing on herself and realised she could still do something useful and contribute to the wellbeing of others.
Having worked in communications, as a counsellor and in pastoral care, she learnt that there are times when we need support with life's challenges.
Sometimes help can come from an insight shared in a book, or a blog. She hopes that her readers will experience these kinds of helpful insights through her written offerings.
If you are struggling right now, seek the help of an experienced counsellor. Silvana also encourage journal writing because it can help us access our own wisdom and answers.
Meditation, Contemplative Prayer, mindfulness, time in nature and engaging in creative pursuits are also healing and calming, especially for anyone suffering with anxiety and depression.
She shares more about her own experiences with various techniques on her blog here.
