With Christmas coming up I want you all to remember the child inside us. Spare a thought to that beautiful girl/boy inside you that has many fond memories of Christmas within your heart. Forget about all the busyness, the busy malls and all those things you need to rush around to do and be kind to yourself this Christmas. Buy yourself a present, watch your favourite Christmas movie or drink some hot chocolate, whilst letting your mind relax. Remember to-inhale & exhale ♥️💚🎄painting by @thereselivonne_art #christmas #christmastime #innerchild #innerchildhealing #reminisce #hotchocolate #christmasmovie #presents #mentalillnessawareness #mentalhealthawareness

So, I felt this was quite pertinent. This time last year I was in a long term relationship and the heaviest and unhealthiest I had ever been. My mental health was also not in a good place. .
.
.
This time last year I couldn’t see a path forward or a direction which I felt comfortable taking. .
.
.
Today I stand proud of who I am and what I have achieved over the last year, I took myself away from an unhappy relationship, i went vegan, I have lost 4.5stone, I ran my first half marathon and then ran another two weeks later - in the process raising over £400 for @thestrokeassociation , I exercise almost daily and took up yoga, I have come off all of my hypertension medications, I have a new job which is the career path I always wanted but never felt I deserved. I’ve booked a solo travel. .
.
.
I feel healthy, happy and so strong in my mental health 💪🏽 this time last year I couldn’t have imagined what was to unfold in the next year. I am proud of myself for being courageous in taking the first step. YOU can too. .
.
.
YOU are worth the fight. Keep going, today could be your turning point. LOVE yourself, BELIEVE in yourself, TRUST your instinct. .

 #myfavoritemeds // Lately I’ve been seeing a wave of mental health posts on social media. Why? I’d like to think it’s because 1) Everyone has mental health to some degree & 2) it’s important & needs to be accepted. Today was the first day in a while that I had an ‘off’ day from the time I woke up. It’s hard to put into words for those who don’t understand what depression feels like & even if you do, it’s still hard because we all experience it differently. Right after I turned 21 in 2012 I found myself in a dark place where I didn’t feel like myself. Skipping all the details, I started taking Celexa & by the end of 2 weeks the feeling I had ‘lifted’ & I felt like myself again. For the last 6 years since then I’ve taken medication, & with ups & downs, I can say that I feel like myself most days. But then there are the days that I don’t. The days that I cry for no reason & feel disconnected. Sad but worse. This is mental health. It’s acceptance, taking the good with the bad & living life in spite of difficult circumstances. I’m am fortunate that I knew to get help & have had a support all along, but I know there are so many others struggling with & without the same resources.

One can never be fully prepared for the things in life that are most worthwhile. Dive in! You may find the waters are more welcoming than you first anticipated ❤️ I know this page is primarily for massage therapy services, but I truly believe that a healthy mind supports a healthy body, so I’m gonna keep posting these feel good memes. Get used to it 😂

Daily reminder that having needs, fears, anxieties, traumas, insecurities, and emotional baggage doesn’t make you difficult, crazy, or unstable.
-
It makes you a normal fucking human being with a pulse and a heartbeat who is too good for someone who makes you feel any differently.
-
What you are feeling is VALID. What you have experienced is VALID. YOU are VALID. And just because someone else can’t empathize or understand your situation, it doesn’t mean they should invalidate your experience.
-
While we all have our own unique instances and struggles, what you are FEELING isn’t unique or special at all. We all feel pain, sadness, fear, guilt, and anxiety.
-
The need for human connection... the need to be heard... the need to be understood... that is part of being human. To deny so would be to go against human nature as a whole.
-
So here’s to being human 🥂 and recognizing that we all have needs, emotions, and desires. Let’s support each other shall we?

U N I B A E S |
Yesterday we celebrated the end of an incredibly tough year, we all work and study full time; we juggle training Ann’s family and friendships; and we’ve had our fair share of mental health struggles and so... we celebrated getting through together, the half way point and whatever else we thought was worth celebrating in.
Uni is challenging but going through it with these people somehow make the insanity less insane. 
10/10 would do again 🖤

No more scrubs. 🤚
Honest, longggg post: If you've been following me for awhile, you know I've always been super candid about my feelings on this page and how it impacts my health.

Really hit an all-time low this year with my seasonal depression since I moved up north from Houston. It really snuck up on me and I didn't realize it until I hit a breaking point a few weeks ago. I felt unlovable. And I felt abandoned by those who were supposed to care about me. I finally went to the doctor after losing 7 pounds from not being able to function and finally got some help.

During this time I also went through a heartless breakup and helped a family member come out to my family about her transition on top of work being crazy. I had been putting others before myself to distract me from the pain I had been feeling. I felt ashamed and like I couldn't be honest about my feelings to the people I was supposed to be "close with." Coming out of this I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and I'm honestly excited for 2019. I am happy to only have genuine friends and family by my side and to shed those who only can love me at my best/ in a superficial way. 
Here is to 2019 and putting ME, my health (physical, mental, spiritual!) first. 👏🙌 who is with me on that??? #fitgirlsguide #fgg #fitgirlsunite #iamenough #fitness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness

Let’s face it. As blokes, we don’t do health well. .
.
If we cut ourselves we bandaid it, or use electrical tape. .
.
If we break an arm, we get a plaster cast which one of our dickhead mates will draw a picture of a dick on.
.
.
If we burn ourselves on a hot pan we scream “oh you f***ing bastard” as if the pan was at fault then run the area under cold water for less time than we should.
.
.
We have coping mechanisms and materials that we use to start repairing because we’ve suffered a physical injury. .
.
What do you do in an area you know is hurting you but you can’t see it? You can’t put bandages over your head and hope for the best. .
.
As blokes we let it go and hope that it goes away and repairs itself over time.. “she’ll be right mate”, like we think that old chestnut works. This In conjunction with how society dictates to us that as men we can’t show emotion or vulnerability means we are destined to fail. .
.
This doesn’t have to be your reality. Your bigger than stigma and incorrect narratives. .
.
Mental illness is like a cancer of the mind it gets worse the longer you leave it. .
.
The only way you can repair this injury is to talk about it. .
.
Find the metal you have in you to reach out to us, a close friend, family member or a health professional. .
.
Your recovery is only a conversation away.

I know it seems dumb to be proud of myself for being able to walk out of my own house, but I am. Isolation is hard to understand. It also may seem nice to hide away for so long, but I assure you it is the most frustrating limbo I have ever been stuck in. If you know me, I have never been able to stay in one place, I never been stagnant, identifying with my mental illness and vices - Wanting to socialize but only being able to handle social media, really being just horrible at keeping in contact, responding to all of you who mean the world to me and never keeping up with any kind of mutually stimulating and rewarding conversation, I've burned so many bridges out of pure frustration with myself, so many times I've sat there starving in silence, needing food and being unable to find the motivation to cook and lacking the desire to eat or drink but having to tell people asking how I've been losing weight that I'm suffering from something embarrassing, something I can't even understand..how many meals I've forced down just to make a concerned frriend or family member happy, fully knowing I was going to get sick the entire time it tasting no better than sand in my mouth.. Watching skate videos on YouTube all day long, wishing I was on my board, taking it apart and putting it back together. Cleaning the house to the point where it's almost annoying, perfecting my home routine but ignoring self care. Hearing the birds & feeling the gentle breeze on my face, wishing it was coming from somewhere other than my own window. 
I could go on but that isn't the point, long story short if you are dealing with the same shit, you aren't alone and it ain't forever!!! Thanks to a little assistance; I remembered who the fuck I was yesterday. So here's to the end of tolerating my own bullshit. This life is short and my butt is too cute to be sitting on it 24/7. #loveyoself #2018 #mentalhealthawareness

Never forget it. 💙

Though discouraged by my failure
I remember who I used to be
I have so far, so far left to go

From shapeless to breakable I have involved

My transgressions are evident to all who know me
Like porcelain carried through a Downtown street
At any moment I might break
From shapeless to breakable I have involved

I could say a thousand more apologies
But to prove that I have truly changed
Only time will tell.

From shapeless to breakable I have involved

Does life need to get so serious when you finally become a “grown up”? I’m sure our mental health statistics would be so much better in this country if we just remembered to play a little more. If we played with the joy of a small child flicking the sprinkler all over the place, the stress would melt away. Then all those unhelpful limiting beliefs check in. “I can’t possibly do that”, “I don’t have time”, “what will the Neighbour’s think”?? We can learn so much from our kids. I still remember the day my daughter who was 11 at the time said to me “mum, you can’t spend you life living in “what if’s” because it’s not helpful to you”. So for today I will climb trees, run through the sprinkler, laugh till it hurts and not worry about my “to do” list! What can you do today to nurture your inner child? #theinnershineclinic #innerchildhealing #tinybuddhaquotes #letmehelpyoutohelpyourself #playlikeakid #laughtillithurts #eftpractitioner #soulcoach #mentalhealthawareness

Mi salud mental no es tabú 🌼. Mi ansiedad tampoco lo es. Abrazo mi ansiedad, la acepto y la entiendo. Pero llegar a esto ha sido un largo proceso y una de las cosas más importantes ha sido entender que yo tengo ansiedad y ella no me tiene a mí. Ella llega cuando hay algo en lo que no me estoy percatando, llega para decirme que pare un rato, respire y vaya más lento.
.
Entender la ansiedad es complicado, para los que la tenemos y para los que no la tienen también. Un primer punto importante sería mencionar que la ansiedad es un estado emocional normal, que aparece ante situaciones estresantes y que incluso sentirla puede ayudar a que logremos mejor algunas cosas del día a día (gracias a esa sensación de urgencia que nos genera). Sin embargo, si la ansiedad llega a niveles en los que sentimos que nos supera y nos paraliza, ahí es cuando debemos parar un rato y buscar ayuda. Y esto aplica en cualquier caso: Cada vez que no podamos con una situación o emoción, pidamos ayuda, está permitido 😉.
.
Vivir con un trastorno de ansiedad es posible, entenderla es posible y saber manejarla también 💛. No me cansaré de recomendarles que vayan con un profesional si lo necesitan. Llevar terapia a mí me ha ayudado mucho para entender de dónde proviene la ansiedad cada vez que me sobrepasa, me ha ayudado a tener mejores herramientas para manejarlas (como el mindfulness) y a tener mayor perspectiva de mi situación.

2. I know we were taught different.
I get it.
But I also know what it feels like to lose my mind.
I also know what it’s like to break down and STILL not have the answers. But I can tell you there’s only one way after that, and that’s “up”. The cathartic release that follows breaking down really helped me with breathing.
Yes, breathing. 
Just breathing.
Because you don’t have to have all the answers, you don’t even have to have a fucking plan.
You just need to accept that pain happened,
and now it’s time to heal.
But the hard part is over.
(Not that healing is easy...)
It’s up to you in how you want to look at it but you can’t rebuild if you never break down.
You can’t start over if you never give up.
You can’t get better if you can’t admit that everything is not perfect.
And you know what happens when you do????
The weight of the world slides right off of your shoulders and onto the ground...where it belongs.
You are free now.
Free to choose wherever you want to go, 
whatever you want to do. 
You get to be a smarter, healthier, STRONGER you.
And I couldn’t applaud you more for seeing that there is hope outside of this pain.
KEEP GOING.

On the 2nd day of Mental Healthmas, the universe spoke to me & encouraged “Two Heartfelt Hugs.” (Sing along) Hugs are universally comforting to the soul. Do you like to give or receive hugs? I actually enjoy both. The gift of a hug can reduce stress, decrease sickness, increase support, and are just down right N E C E S S A R Y for personal growth. Try it today! You will be guaranteed to make someone feel important with you kind gesture. A remember, you are good enough! You are strong enough! You will make a difference!

Self-care is not a solitary journey. You will need help along the way. 
Be vulnerable.
Be honest. With yourself and other.
Be open.
To the help (you) needing help too.

Day 74

Year-long Unicorn Run Everyday Challenge

Starting to do longer runs again to phase in training for half marathon. Stopped partway through to help an autistic lady who was upset who then sat down on the pavement and was inconsolable...thankfully all sorted. The kindness of strangers never ceases to amaze me. Every passer by stopped to ask to help as I tried to get emergency services to intervene. They wouldn't because she wasn't really sick or injured, however several passers-by offered to take her back home so it got resolved. The world can be a kind place. One of the passers-by had driven past and seen her fall and come back to help. It was freezing out so I'm glad it was easily resolved for her.

THE HOLIDAY SEASON CAN REALLY SUCK.
.
Truth is, December hasn’t ever really been easy for me. Despite the excitement and magic feels around the holiday season, I’ve realized this year that I never really can (or have been able to) properly enjoy it.
.
I’ll be honest: I didn’t go to a family Christmas earlier this month because I was afraid I’d be shamed for my weight gain and my lack of societally normal accomplishments (buying a house, having kids, etc.)
.
Also, all I can seem to think about is the impending winter and whether my meds will be enough to get me through it. January is typically a really hard time of year for me, when my anxiety and depression skyrockets to the point of becoming almost non-functional. .
So already, I’m beginning to worry for days that have yet to even happen (typical anxiety brain, am I right?) That makes trying to get through (and possibly enjoy?) the holidays extremely difficult.
.
Christmas is also a time where those who have lost - or those who are dealing with an impending loss - struggle more than usual. For me, all I can think of is how I should be making the most of each day because it could be the last opportunity I have to do so with one of my loved ones. .
That’s a lot of pressure to put on ourselves. Thinking everything has to be perfect, we have to enjoy every moment, be present in every moment, and spend ridiculous amounts of money to make the occasion special for our loved ones.
.
I wish this was one of those 10 ways to get through the holiday season posts, but it’s not. Because honestly, I’m struggling through each day just like anybody else may be.
.
All I know is the importance of a few things: being mindful and honest with yourself, and most importantly, cutting yourself some slack. Be gentle with yourselves this holiday season, and know that you’re not the only one struggling with these things.
.
We might not have the answers on how to get through the storm, but at least we have the comfort of knowing we’re waiting it out together (hopefully enjoying lots of chicken nuggets).

“You tried to bury your sadness, but she is alive and wants to be loved.” @mikalina Thank you for this powerful sentence and written visual. I have noticed that I’m bristling this year when holiday music is insisting on cheerfulness, and that it’s the most wonderful time of the year. I believe that cultural expectations can become internalized and when our emotions don’t line up with how we are “SUPPOSED TO FEEL”, it contributes to depression. This piece is my mash up with @mikalina ‘s work to remind all of us to be authentic and feel what we feel. It’s ok to be sad. It’s extra ok to be sad when there is less sunshine and there are extra demands on our time and attention and resources. You get to decide how to navigate this season. I hope you choose stillness and peace along with whatever jolly holly you may have! So much love people!!! #sad #seasonalaffectivedisorder #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #depression #belovedbodies #wantstobeloved #selflove #selfcare #emotionalwork #emotionalselfcare #holidayspirit #intersectionalfeminism #be #authenticity #mixedmedia #sketch #digitalart #plussizeart #fatfeminist #fatartistsmakingfatart #fatart #oaklandartist #begentlewithyourself #selfawareness #wholeness #thehumancondition #humancondition

"It is so much easier to blame other people, conditioning, or conditions for our own stagnant situation. But we are responsible..." (Stephen Covey - The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) 👏🏻
.
I wasn't raised to treat my body right. . .🙈
.
I still have to remind myself to brush my teeth at night 😬
.
I would love to continue eating doughnuts every morning, but I don't enjoy the yucky 'blah' feeling I get 🤮
.
I never used to get off of the couch after school, what was there to do? Now I know that no butt is pretty if you sit on it all day 🍑
.
I never thought to look inside myself to be happy and always thought that friends/family were what happiness was, but true self-love is the greatest form of happiness 💕
.
No matter where you came from, how you were raised, or what you've been told, this is YOUR life and YOU are in complete control 👉🏻
.
You can either complain or change...make life worth it 🙌🏻

Today was hard.
.
I woke up feeling like I got an instant cold overnight. Sore throat, runny nose, congestion, headache, drowsiness - the works. No matter how much tea, hot lemon water, and cold medicine I had, it seemed to only get worse as the day went on. On top of this, my new found cold only made juggling deadlines for work that much harder.
.
I found a little light in the darkness after I was able to nap - waking up feeling better. Not 100%, but good enough that I thought I would go to the gym. I just wanted to walk on the treadmill, stretch, and sit in the sauna. I did make it to the gym. I was on the treadmill for 20 (long) minutes as I felt my cold coming back on stronger than before. I figured I’d go in the sauna to “sweat it out” until I realized I didn’t have my change of shoes (Sauna Rule 1: no gym shoes in the sauna, only sandals 🙄). No sauna for me.
.
I left the gym feeling worse than I have all day, and as I sit here and type this I’m drinking theraflu to try and ease my symptoms. All this on top of the fact that the past few days I haven’t been in a very good headspace.
.
This may seem minimal to some, and that’s okay - I know others out there are dealing with far greater difficulties than I am. I just want you to know that it’s okay to have off days. It’s okay to take a sick day. It’s okay to not feel like yourself. It’s okay to struggle. You are NOT alone.
.
Thank God for all of the good things you do have. Thank God for your life. May you find strength knowing he and others are there for you. Remember - you are NOT alone.
