A petition that is the first step to getting the laws changed because we need to be able to protect ourselves and family with out being jailed, when the law enforcement ignores the problem, and waits for someone to be seriously hurt or killed before they act....

Right to protect one's self and family

Target: Rick Boucher, Congressman, US House of Representatives
Sponsor: Christine Schaffner
People should be allowed to do what is reasonable to protect themselves and thier family. Too often, when someone does do such, they face jail time instead of the person who was harming them in the first place.Imagine how you would feel, if you had to go to the furthest part of your peoperty and let the intruder do as they please. Then you are told, that if you raise one hand in self defense against the attacker, then you'd be the one in jail.

Right to protect one's self and family

This country was founded by people who were willing to take a stand and face the issues that interfered with thier ability to protect thier families. Why is it then, now, people are afraid to protect themselves, because too often the criminals get off scott- free, and the victims are painted out to be the criminal.

Mindfulness And Mental Health Improvement

What's going on in your head? Until you know, there can be all sorts of
problems. Uncorrectable problems. You can't fix a problem that you don't see,
right? That is where mindfulness comes in. Mindfulness and mental health are
intimately connected.

Your mind is busy in there right now, talking about all sorts of things. It may
be telling you that you are tired of your job, or that you are a victim of
circumstance. It may be running through a list of all the things you need to be
doing. It may be saying all the wrong things, and yet you may hear none of it.
You may just feel a slight anxiety building as your day goes on.

When I first learned how to do basic mindfulness exercises, I was amazed. I
found that whole conversations were going on just below consciousness. Not only
was it interesting to see, but the most amazing part was that I could now often
end feelings of worry or anxiety. All I had to do was stop and watch my mind
until I found the cause.

Yes, it actually is often that simple. If you forgot to write down an
appointment, for example, it may be bothering you for hours. As soon as you see
that, you write it down and you feel relaxed again. If an argument is playing
and replaying subconsciously in your mind and stressing you out, often just
bringing it to consciousness will make you laugh and dismiss it.

Mindfulness And Long Term Mental Health

Don't underestimate the power of short term happiness and good thoughts to
influence the course of your mental health over the longer term. Resolve
anxieties and stresses now, and regularly, and you'll be healthier, and you'll
be developing good habits. Good feelings now lead to good feelings in the
future, and habits are what we need for any long term results.

As for the big problems, mindfulness is a way to see them more clearly for what
they are. As you get better at tuning into your own subconscious mind, you will
start to see patterns. I found, for example, that my mind was mulling over and
worrying about all the possible choices in decisions that weren't made. It
caused me endless stress.

Seeing this clearly, finally recognizing how destructive this habit of
indecisiveness was, lead me to change. I started making decisions more quickly,
just to try a new way. I immediately experienced how stress diminishes once a
decision is made. My habits began to change, and I was getting more done with
less anxiety.

The most basic mindfulness exercise is to just sit quietly and start paying
attention to everything going on in your body and mind. Of course this can be
difficult if you've never done it, and this article isn't a how-to. This is just
to make the case that it's worth learning. There is definitely a connection
between mindfulness and mental health.
