The prayer Ciara prayed for Russell Wilson (CBT) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Many have seen the posts and memes asking for the exact prayer that Ciara used to get the Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Ciara was most notably dating rapper, song writer Future, for which she born a son named after his father. The relationship according to tabloids and social media was and is an embattled … Yet, she seemingly met her destiny in Mr. Wilson, whom not only loves, support and encourages Ciara and Future son like his own, he seemingly treats her exceptionally well. Perhaps, the question that is missing is… how did Ciara become the woman Russell Wilson desired and deserved so much so…that he made her his wife, while readily loving and accepting Ciara and Future son as his own.

Burnout Is Now A Legitimate Diagnosis, Says World Health Organization. Let's Talk About it!
The stress, depression and lack of feeling in control that comes with burnout are finally being formally recognized by the medical community: Burnout is now an official workplace syndrome.
The International Classification of Diseases, or the ICD-11, the World Health Organization’s handbook that helps medical providers diagnose diseases, classifies burnout as “a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.”Symptoms include feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion; increased mental distance from one’s job or feelings of negativity or cynicism related to one’s job; and reduced professional efficacy.
The ICD-11 notes that burnout is specific to occupation and “should not be applied to describe experiences in other areas of life.”
What about your friends? Solutions Focused Therapy
Many of songs have been written and sang regarding “ friends”, Dionne Warwick That's What Friends Are For, Mariah Carey Anytime You Need a Friend, Garth Brooks Friends in Low Places, Brandy , Best Friend”. Though some natural loners are happy without friends, most of humanity depends greatly on the company of true friends. People tend to befriend those who are similar in background, in personality, and sometimes even appearance, an assortative process that resembles the way in which people select prospective mates. A critical life skill is the ability to establish and maintain strong friendships, while artfully navigating toxic individuals, who may at first be ultra eager to form a friendship.

Walk and Talk Therapy. Is it for you? Let's talk about it!
Exercise is good for the body and the mind. It may improve psychotherapy sessions, too. It's very similar to traditional psychotherapy, except you are walking while you are talking about issues. I have found that bringing a little bit of movement enriches the counseling session. My clients are excited by the idea and are naturally drawn to being outside. Combining exercise and therapy:
It encourages a patient to be more physically active for mental and physical reasons.
It helps a patient get "unstuck" when confronting difficult issues.
It spurs creative, deeper ways of thinking often released by mood-improving physical activity.
Some patients may become anxious when confronting something difficult in a traditional seated, face-to-face interaction. Walking in parallel with visual distractions may allow for easier engagement.
