    What is a Rebound Relationship?

    October 27, 2021 | VeryWell Mind

    A new relationship can be exciting, but how do you know if it’s a rebound? Humantold’s Micaela Stein dives into the gritty details of rebound relationships in this VeryWell Mind article. 

    Rebounds vary in duration, characteristics, and most importantly, their impact on your mental health. The relationships can be emotionally confusing for both parties due to heavy engagement with the past. Some people don’t even realize they’re intentionally seeking out these types of relationships. So if every rebound varies, how can you ever truly be confident that you are over your ex?

    Micaela Stein (LCSW) explains the ins and outs of rebound relationships. Although there are some signs you may be in a rebound, the determining factor is how you feel. She says, “Rebound relationships can look like a lot of different things, but if you feel like there is a third person in the room with you—your partner’s ex or your own—that is something to address.”

    Is this normal?

    What does your new normal look like in a pandemic world? Humantold’s Isha Kumar discusses the steps you can take to find your version of “normal” in this Bottom Line Health article. 

    Are you excited to get back to your pre-pandemic lifestyle? Or does the idea of returning to “normal” leave you feeling a sense of dread? The pandemic re-shaped the way many people live their lives. But as the world continues shifting, some are feeling a loss of control. 

    Isha Kumar (MHC-LP) explains that returning to a pre-pandemic lifestyle in our ever-changing world takes time. “We get to choose how we approach our return. The nature and pace of it is up to us,” she says. You can help smooth over the transition by exploring your options through the lens of your preferences, checking in with yourself about what feels right, and setting realistic expectations on what life should look like for you after COVID.

  • Is Meditation the New Therapy?

    Is Meditation the New Therapy?

    September 22, 2021 | Verywell Health

    The pandemic caused a rise in mental health issues, and simultaneously, increased the need for alternatives to in-person care. Humantold’s Javier Moreira talks about one of the leading options you can use to ease your mind: meditation. 

    In-person mental health care became widely inaccessible due to the pandemic—just as reports of anxiety, stress, and depression increased. Many people are taking to alternatives, like guided meditation videos and apps, to cope with the added strain. But will meditation continue growing in popularity? Will the trend stick around beyond the pandemic? 

    Javier Moreira (LMHC) illustrates the impacts meditation has on your well-being and how easy it is to incorporate into your daily self-care regimen. “Mindfulness and meditation apps, along with YouTube, have positive impacts by making meditation much more accessible to the average person,” he says. The best part is that there’s no added cost. All you need to practice guided meditation is an internet connection.

  • Why Can’t I Make Friends?

    Why Can’t I Make Friends?

    September 22, 2021 | Verywell Mind

    Do you feel lonely or like you don’t have many friends? You’re not alone. In this Verywell Mind article, Humantold’s Jessica Ermilio provides insight on building meaningful relationships. 

    Making new friends as an adult can be tricky. There are many possible reasons you could be unsuccessful with friendship, all of which can negatively impact your mental health. But it’s possible to create new relationships at any age if you remain willing to put in the effort. 

    Jessica Ermilio (PsyD) expresses the importance of friendships for your mental health. “The need for safe and secure attachments begins at birth. As children, the parental figures in our lives typically satisfy that need by providing us with physical and emotional security. As we grow up, however, we look more towards close friendships or partnerships to satisfy these attachment needs,” she says. She recommends seeking comfortable environments or activities where you feel safe to meet people.
