A mental health and wellbeing blog to help those battling their own inner demons by spreading positivity, tips, and sharing my own experiences of mental health struggles including grief and anxiety.
For many of us, therapy is something that we will have experienced or will need in our life at some point. However, there is a stigma attached, causing people to be embarrassed to talk about it or even consider the idea, but why is this? Talking therapies can be one of the most useful things to help with your struggles, whatever they may be. I look at the differences and similarities between therapy, counseling and coaching, which may help you decide if you've been thinking about seeking help.
Hello! It's been over a month since I last posted, but I'm back, ready to continue to try and help with breaking the stigma of mental health, conveniently lined up with Mental Health Awareness Week. I figured that to kick off the week I'd share with you what my experiences with mental health struggles have been like and why I'm now an advocate for it. So, I'll try and keep it short, but here's a revisit to my struggles with anxiety, depression, grief and burnout.
I’m sitting here writing this blog post after having felt a sudden wave of emotion this morning. A wave that hit me like a ton of bricks, completely unexpectedly. Today marks my Mum‘s birthday. She would have been 62 today, and it’s been 12 and a half years since she passed away, so you’d think it’d be a lot easier now. Well, some things get easier as time goes on, but of course there’s also a lot that never really leaves you.
lt's funny isn't it... We've spent roughly a year of what has been suggested as to be something other than "normal life" because it's not the life we once lived prior to the pandemic. The life where we had all the freedom and joys of going where we wanted, spending time with the people we love, and hugging people freely. What we've lived for the past year being named as the "new normal" but not one that we want to stick around. Or do we?
If you're new to my blog, and CBD, you may be interested in my earlier post on CBD and what it's about. If you've been following me for a while then you may recall this post already, when I was new to it, back in October, having not yet tried CBD at that point. Well, after trying a few different products over the past 5 months I wanted to give an update of sorts as to how I've been finding it.
Now I know, I know, this is kinda late. The new year started 20 days... However, I still want to reflect back on 2020 and the things that I learnt throughout the year. Some I already knew but found deeper connection with, and some are little revelations from pandemic life.
Yes, 2020 has given us a pandemic, and it's been really shit in parts. A lot of people have unfortunately lost their lives all over the world from Covid-19, on top of all the other health problems that strike. It's been a year of global uncertainty in more ways than one. It's been one HELL of a rollercoaster, and continues to be right up until the end and into 2021. However, it's also been a lot more than just the negatives.
Everyone experiences grief differently, but here I explain the general process and parts of grief that we may experience at different times after losing a loved one, a relationship, or something else we love.
Two passions of mine are music, and advocating for mental health, so this post combines both of these to talk about how music can be so beneficial to us and our mental health.
Anxiety has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and is the reason I started this blog. Here I explain how it and has effected me and how it's changed over the years.
Social media is a blessing and a curse, but why is it so good to have a break from our phones?
A short post about why gratitude is so important to our wellbeing and mindset.
Lockdown was different for everyone. Here I reflect on what it was like for me and the lessons I learned from it.
Have you ever wondered if self-care is selfish? If you feel this way, you’re not alone! There are many who feel that taking time to focus on just them is selfish. Whether they have things to do or people to take care of. They feel they don’t have the time to put aside for just […]
There's going to always be "that guy" in your life. He's the one you label as your first love, and the one you put all your hopes and dreams into. But what happens when "forever" only lasts 6 months? What happens when another girl gets your guy and you're left with all the pieces of "what might've been"?
