Talkspace for New Generation

Talkspace has become the company that is making it possible for more people to get the help they need with their problems. Everyone is not going to be able to afford a therapist on a regular basis. The great thing about the Talkspace app is that it allows people to connect with a licensed therapist for as little as $32 a week. This is a great way for people to start getting help with things that they are going through.

A lot of people face issues on a daily basis, and they have no idea about what they can do to make things better. In many cases people want to talk out their issues and get some type of explanation about how they can resolve their issues. The problem is that most people do not want to be identified. They do not want to talk to friends and they do not want to have physical contact with a therapist because they are embarrassed about the problems that they deal with. In many cases the same stigma that is associated with going to therapy is also associated with several of the disorders that people find themselves dealing with.

One of the things that people deal with it on a regular basis that has a stigma attached to it is depression. Many people do not want to talk about depression. There are lots of these people that also may have issues with personality disorders like the borderline personality disorder that is also a stigma.

People that are looking for any type of way to erase these issues will need to consider professional help. A licensed therapist can be the best outlook for people that are interested in reconstructing a life that may have become unhinged as a result of life changing events.

Top Six Ways Men Die

It’s laughable that many men will search for ‘women’ being among the top six ways men die, but women don’t make the list as men-killers. It’s not what others do to men that shortens their lifespan, but what men do to themselves that bring about untimely deaths.
* Smoking and being exposed to workplace pollutants cause serious respiratory problems primarily in men. COPD, pulmonary fibrosis and asthma shorten the male lifespan according to Ray Lane.
* Heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women. Heart disease kills one out of every four men. Smoking contributes to heart disease, so does a sedentary lifestyle.
* Cancer also causes men to die too early. Again smoking is often the catalyst behind the cancer.
* Strokes, caused from uncontrolled high blood pressure. Limit salt intake to help control blood pressure and live longer.
* Diabetes is a silent killer which doesn’t discriminate between the sexes. However, the disease does seem to favor men and hey are less likely to take care of themselves.
* Accidental injuries caused from attempting to be macho. Driving to fast and other reckless endeavors are often paid for with a man’s life.
