Thursday wisdom/truth bomb/interpret-at-your-own-risk post! • As an introvert (yes, believe it or not, while I love love love people, socialization typically drains me- and apparently that’s what the new research says makes you an introvert), I personally feel like I’m constantly being thrown from “a nest”. The “committee” in my mind, as some of my friends and family call it, is made up of very loud, individual voices of self-doubt, disapproval, discontent, and fear that just lead to me feeling confused and anxious on a daily basis. Yes, at some point today I can count on feeling confused and anxious. And while I have mastered hiding that from anyone and everyone, years of practice and research have given me the tools to calmly and gently turn that crazy car around and remember that everything is more than fine. Since some of the worst of it has passed and I haven’t had a full-blown anxiety attack in about 6 years, it still takes daily work and actual “time-outs” for my mind so I can consciously rearrange my thoughts and get myself back to “the nest”. I’m not 100% sure what Pema is really talking about here but for me, once I realized there WAS a nest and I was in control of whether or not I was in it, things got a lot better. ANYWAY! That’s enough rambling for this Thursday morning! Now just get through this work day, be nice to people, do something that makes you happy and have a drink at the end. We’re almost to the weekend, people! 💪🏼👸🏼🦄 #pemachodron #louisehay #waynedyer #mentalhealthawareness #overshare

I slept for 6 hours today because I'm so fucking tired and depressed lol. New blog post in my bio 🎉 #mentalhealth #bipolarawareness #bipolar #mentalhealthawareness
Thank you for this @atypia I've been pretty vocal about my depression lately. That's because it hit me hard last week. Aside from feeling the usual sad and exhausted, which most ppl (even those who never experienced depression) can understand, I felt empty inside. Literally hollow and not feeling anything. There's a difference between feeling sad and clinical depression! But on the upside: you gain a mean sense of humor and probably an overactive imagination because you have to get creative when you contantly have to battle yourself 😉 #depressionhumor #depressionhumour #depression #mentalhealth #theupsideofdepression #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthawarenessmonth
Good Morning 🙋🏽 This is such a great tool for #anxiety. Works so well as a distraction if you are out & about & need something to take your mind of your thoughts & feelings. Hope it helps you! 💛 #anxiety #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #anxietyawareness #groundingtools #depression #helpingothers #instapic #instadaily #instalike #picstagram #tbt
S O C I A L M E D I A 'body ideals' the 'quest for perfection' the feeling 'insecure' and 'inadequate'...is it any wonder?A Metro Report. There has been a 68% increase in self-harming in 3 years (2011-2014). This is an all too common reality I face as a Child Psychiatrist. I do wonder whether there is a role for a social media module at school, after all education is empowerment. #mentalhealthawareness #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #socialmedia #curriculum #school #wellbeing #wellness #teens #girlproblems #healthymindhealthybody #healthymindandbody #healthymind #educationiskey #teachersofinstagram #parenting #parents #mums #dads #thursdaythoughts #thursday #thursdays #lunchtime #inthenews

#TBT to Fraser, founder of @repairly.co.uk . . "I used to care a lot about people’s opinions of me, and it’s led to feelings of hard imposter syndrome and inadequacy in the past. I remember my lowest point was crying on a hotel room floor, with feelings of total despair. At that moment, I knew I needed help to understand my emotions, which was what eventually led me to Sanctus. . Sanctus is now an extremely important part of my diary, because I value my mental health as much as my physical health. My conviction is that by having an understanding of our emotions, and the actions that they lead us to take, we become far more effective people. As a result, we can outcompete the people who are being blown around with the wind by their emotions. Like physical health helps us lift heavier weight that others, mental health gives us more resilience to deal with life’s challenges, and that’s the real power I see in Sanctus." . . #throwbackthursday #repairly #ustwo #story #stories #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #wellbeing
