Bad Day? Posts To Help You!

I'm sorry if your having a bad day or your looking for something to cheer you up... I have put together this page of posts by some lovely bloggers who talk about mental health and also a few of my VERY own posts that i feel will be of benefit to you and it's a good way to have a bank of uplifting/ helpful posts in one place.

It’s Okay Not To Be Okay

It is okay. Honestly. I have some difficulty coming to terms with these few words, and many a time I have actually broken down because I used to feel like there was something wrong with me if I wasn’t happy around people and that I always had to be happy all the time. There isn’t a need constantly to put on this mask for the world, it might seem easier to just put this mask on and to tell the world where to go but you don’t need to. I am still learning everyday to accept that but if you’re feeling this right now then you need this post. Continue Reading...

To Anyone Who Suffers Mental Illness

Sometimes I just need to write. It’s not always interesting or blog-worthy – sometimes it’s published, sometimes it’s not – but for me, these kind of posts highlight the exact reason I started my blog. The kind of posts that don’t get titles until they’re written because you just don’t know what route they will take. To me, there is something really great about that. These kind of posts either end up being an irrelevant brain dump or they end up being quite deep – something that I’m really feeling inside and it’s always important to remember why I do this. Why I started my blog, who I am, what I stand for.

Anxiety Is Not Exaggerated
I really don't know how to start this off, but I guess the title is self explanatory. Anyone with anxiety knows the struggle, whether you deal with it daily or sometimes. I'm not an expert so this isn't an advice post. Everyone has different experiences with how they deal with anxiety but this is something we all have in common. Anxiety can be caused by a number of things, one of them being stress. Although there are tips to manage stress unfortunately it will always be there. Sometimes I feel like my mind is always going a hundred miles per hour. I am always overthinking about the craziest things.

Self Care Box

So for  now while i'm lost within myself i have decided i'm going to do a series all about mental healthy recovery and ways in which people can help themselves feel stronger and more positive within themselves. In doing this i'm hoping that this will help not only you reading this BUT me too, with ways in which we can all help better our mental health. So, today i have decided that i'm going to kick things off with  a "SAFE BOX"or a "DISTRACTION BOX" or a "HAPPY BOX" to help comfort you in a moment of despair or cheering up!

How To Deal With Bad Mental Health Days

I don't really tend to speak a lot about mental health here on my blog. It's not that I don't want to or I'm ashamed of it, because I'm really not, there's nothing to be ashamed about and I happen speak very openly about my struggles. But I think it's more to do with that I want my blog to be a part of me that is away from all that negative energy. I like to keep my blog a more happy and positive place to be the person I really want to be, not who my anxiety or depression is trying to make me be.

Body Shaming

Don’t let your mind bully your body. Sometimes that can be tough to do but you don’t need thinner legs, a flatter stomach, longer hair, softer skin or a prettier face. What you really need is a change in your perspective and a higher self-esteemCompliments are something I just love to give out, I'm always telling people how nice they look and how intelligent they are.

Life can get on top of us so easily. Sometimes we need to just take a second to disconnect from the world and focus on ourselves. Sometimes we need to think of one positive thing we can do today. Join the Not Such a Bad Day campaign! Let’s face it, 2016 has dished us more than our fair share of drama and stresses. Be it political, celebrity-based, or about exams – I’m sure there’s something that sticks out in each of our minds.

Surviving A Suicide Attempt

This is a hard post to write, and something that tends to be quite ‘hush hush’ because of the stigma surrounding suicide, depression and mental health generally. I’m not writing this because I want attention, sympathy or people to feel sorry for me.  I’m writing it because, when I came home from hospital I wanted to connect/talk to other people who had felt the same things as me, had experienced the same feelings and understood what I was going through.
