Why is community so important?

It gives us a sense of belonging...

Engage with your community
We can all feel like we're an outsider at times, but knowing that we are part of something greater helps us know that we have a sense of purpose. When we are on the outside looking in, especially after we've gone through some trauma or loss, we may feel isolated or alone. But being part of a community can help us feel connected. When we step inside a new environment and open ourselves up to others, it enables us to share experiences and things, and ultimately feel supported by the group dynamic. It also shapes our identity. Simply speaking, your identity is a combination of your physical and behavioral traits that define who you are. When we’re part of a community, we learn about shared our values and beliefs. We also learn about our history and culture. This can help us feel we have a place in the world, and that we are part of something important. How are you engaging with your community these days? Do you show up as your authentic self? Are you trying to fit in? Just be yourself and you'll find your tribe, or better yet, they may find you. And through the process, watch how your physical, mental, and emotional health evolves with including others in your daily life. Secure a place within your community today. 
Need help connecting to a community?
There are many ways to get involved in your community, but let your heart be your guide. What do you love to do? Where are the places you like to go? Join a club or organization with people who share your identity or values. Intermix yourself in a spiritual community or go to support groups. Volunteer your time or go to community events in your area. Even getting to know your neighbors and building relationships with them can provide a sense of belonging and reduce feelings of isolation. If you feel isolated or alone and need help feeling at one with the world again, consider working with me. Together we can eliminate these feelings of doubt and anxiety to help you get back out into the universe and give the best version of yourself to others in your community. You owe it to yourself.
The Substitute

One way that some people typically find themselves in a community is outside- smoking. Since smokers have been ostracized to the great outdoors, there could be a community standing right outside your door! Not to say that you should pick up smoking, but what you will find is that the breath is what calms us all down. Be a leader in your community and use The Substitute as an alternative to smoking, and start smoking inside as well. The Substitute has no tobacco, no toxins, simply air, so you can use it anywhere- planes, trains, restaurants, bars, clubs, school, church, work, wherever. You could even join The Substitute Society, my non profit, to help the youth learn how to cope with stress in a healthy way. Plus, with each purchase, a portion of the proceeds goes to the fight against cancer, a club that none of us want to be in. But, if you happen to find yourself in this unfortunate association, try using The Substitute. It might reverse the disease. Breathwork is a powerful place to be in and releases pent up anger, frustration, pain, and suppressed emotions that we tend to bury deep within our bodies. Sometimes those feelings can congregate into an area and cause us to have physical problems that we cannot ignore. I believe that The Substitute is the cure to cancer and our bodies can heal. Don't believe me? Try it, and just breathe...
