My Calming Remedy

Motivational Blib Blob

If you feel,

rough,

down,

sad,

hurt,

anxious

or depressed

then look for anything which is related to nature. I consider ‘green power’ to be the best calming remedy. In order to correctly use it, please, focus on the present moment and think about what your eyes can see. Try to notice as many details as possible. Your mind will become occupied with a distractive thought and will instantly become more at ease.

Morning

Life is real

I woke up in the morning feeling emotionally and physically sick. The only thing I wanted to do was to go back to bed and hide away from the world. I dressed, got ready and left home for work. Has it got easier since morning? No… it hasn’t, I’m on my lunch break typing this post and counting the hours until I finish job.

Days like this take place but it’s a reminder for us to be gentle with ourselves. Taking care of your mental and physical being should be your highest priority as in this way there is a big chance that your current wellbeing won’t transform into anxiety/ panic attack.

Make it Work !

Life is real

Do yourself a favour and be yourself no matter what. If the people suck or try to change you refuse it and fight it by being yourself. If they see the world in black & white and you view it in rainbow colours embrace it. Embrace the fact that you perceive the world differently. You notice many interesting details which stimulate your imagination and help you to cope with everyday hardships.

I’m Tired and I’m Still Coping with it

Life is real

When I’m tired I try to admire the beauty of nature. What I tend to do is to take pictures of everything I consider to be interesting. I look at it when my mind feels overwhelmed. The fact that I’m able to look at something mesmerising calms me down as I know I’m going to be out there soon 😊

Reality of the Anxious Mind

Life is real

Anxious mind wonders and never stops. It’s up to me how I treat it and how I approach it. I tend to get annoyed at the fact that I always worry too much. I overanalyse different happenings in my life. I let my thoughts be and I block them from affecting my life as much as I can.

Hormonal and Chemical Brain War

Precious Experiences

Being a woman is very interesting. We go through phases, periods and hormonal changes. Our menstrual cycle is complex. I feel like it’s even more challenging when you suffer from anxiety.

Being a woman is very interesting. We go through phases, periods and hormonal changes. Our menstrual cycle is complex. I feel like it’s even more challenging when you suffer from anxiety.

I could divide my cycle into three parts. During the first part I feel amazing. I almost forget I suffer from anxiety. I feel good, I’m positive and I juggle daily tasks amazingly well. The second part of my cycle is still fine with a small difference, I begin to experience anxious thoughts. They hang over me and don’t want to go. I also overanalyse happenings in my life. The third part is bearable but can be daunting. It’s often combined with a state of being overwhelmed, anxious including intrusive thoughts.

What do I do? I live and thrive. I’ve read multiple articles about ‘relaxing’ with anxiety during monthly cycle which is absolutely fine but I’m not a well…

Samaritans – How we can Help

The talk of taking ones life has hit my senses more often than i can take. I feel for the families and friends of those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. What hurts the most is sometimes the simple question – Why? Why make those plans with me? Why leave me? Why didn’t i see this?

Truth is and it hurts the most to know that no one will ever know. People will say they were selfish for taking their own life but the reality of it is that they believed that the world was better of without them. They were not being selfish. They were hurting. They were blocked from happiness and anyone who calls it the easy way out does not understand the reality of living with a mental illness.

I once came close it being a statistic myself…
