The world is made up of good and bad, like night and day, yin and yang - there has to be balance. But there is always good to be found amongst the bad, you just have to look for it a bit harder sometimes 🌓
.
This is part of a note I wrote yesterday, whenever I have something on my mind I write it down. Part of my anxiety has been centred around how I feel so small and helpless to pain and suffering in this world, and how there can be such evil in people's hearts. But this week I felt at peace with this. My hope in people has been restored, by the kindness of just a few, who willingly help or flash a smile as you walk by, for nothing in return. That is the true judge of character, a stranger who you have no obligation to, and how you act, not what you say.

I’m a mum who has worn her pjs to do school drop off and pick up, and into the supermarket, on many occasions,
does it matter? Heck no, im not hurting anybody, and I don’t care what anybody thinks, why should i.
But I do know that when I put some effort into my appearance, it does make me feel better, we should only do what makes us feel good, even if we have many days in our pjs.

Trying to fit in, used to be a big problem for me, I always felt not good enough, but it’s not about how we look, it’s how we feel about ourselves.
I would rather be honest with myself, than try to portray something I am not, and we will attract the right people into our lives.

There are no wrongs,
when it comes to the way we are,
how we dress, is not who we are,
Who we are is something I am still learning, and discovering,
who we are, is the person that we choose to be, I choose to love, be kind, and have an understanding, to inspire the uninspired, and put some hope back into peoples lives, to give a little of me.

This is who i am, and strive to be ❤️🙏🏻 _____________________________

At the start of every run the voice in my head tells me I’m not in the mood, I can’t be bothered etc and if I can’t turn them around it means I have a shit run. To quieten those thoughts I use a mix of my favourite music or podcasts and just the sounds of nature. Today I listened to this weeks @jasonmanford podcast with Steve Edge. I actually had to stop half way up the hill at one point because they were so funny and I nearly went into that hysterical manic laughing that you can’t stop hehe. I definitely recommend this podcast, it’s hilarious 😆 Mind it buggers up your breathing when you’re running 🏃‍♀️💕

☁️A safe place☁️
Yesterday I went to the doctors to get my mood checked out as over the past month or so I’ve been having a major breakdown and have been severely depressed and since the visit I have started to feel more positive about things and I feel happy and motivated again 😊. When I used to go to therapy session my therapist would make me close my eyes and imagine a place where I feel safe and where I can go to when I’m feeling anxious or sad or stressed etc and the first place which popped into my head was a field with wildflowers and long lemon grass with a old tree what I could sit under. My therapist would ask me the temperature there and it would be warm but not too warm, she would ask me the smell and I would tell her that it smelt like wood and fresh cut grass. The things I could see was the evening sky and the grass and flowers moving and the wind blew through them. I would have no phone and this safe place would be in the middle of no where 🍃 it would be just me and the flowers and no one was around to ruin the peace there 💜 the idea of a safe place is a place to go to in your head for a few minuets when you need to relax. It takes your mind off the things what you are thinking about in that moment and you feel safe 🌱 do you have a safe place? 🌞🌻 #safeplace #doctors #imaginary #therapy #cbt #candle #lavendar #wildflowers #lemongrass #peace #peaceful #mooddiary #thoughtfuldiary #sunflowers #journal #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #ocd #ptsd #autism #autismawareness #depression #depressed #blog #mentalhealthblog #anxiety #anxietyrelief #anxietyawareness #mentalhealthblog

PANIC SURFING

Panic attacks are sudden periods of intense fear that may include palpitations, sweating, shaking, shortness of breath, numbness, or a feeling that something really bad is going to happen. 1 in 100 Australians have suffered from panic attacks in the last 12 months - it is a common problem. "Surfing" panic involves making a plan to manage the unpleasant cycle of catastrophic thoughts, flight/fight response and distressing physical feelings. Psychologists use cognitive behavioural therapy, relaxation techniques and exposure therapy to address this cycle.

FURTHER READING: A great resource to assist you in managing these strong feelings is "Panic Surfing" by A Baillie and R Rapee.

3 Quick Tricks.

3 'off the top of my head' tips to reduce your anxiety starting today.

1 - Use progressive physical relaxation.
Just before you enter a room, a party, a situation that makes you anxious, try this. Start with one part of your body, tense it, clench it for 5 seconds and release slowly. I start with my feet and legs, then chest and back, arms and hands then neck and shoulders. Tense up for 5 sec, then release and breathe out.

2. Deep breathe & Slow it Down.
When you panic your breathing tends to speed itself up. To give your muscles more oxygen and energy to fight or run away. So... Slow it down. Look around, big slow deep breaths, and if you're with other people - don't forget to smile too. (They don't know what you're up to). 3. Cheerlead yourself.
In challenging times, when facing a seemingly impossible task, I find a phrase that empowers me. I imagine myself helping someone else and shouting words of encouragement to them. 'Come on', 'You got this', 'You can do this', 'Lets Do this'. Then i direct that phrase with as much excitement and intention towards myself nd you know what... It works for me!

Try them for yourself. . . . .

Being inside my head isn't always easy. I never know if I'm going to wake up feeling alright, somewhat okay, unreasonably happy, or like the world is crumbling at my feet and there's nothing I can do to stop it. Depression and anxiety aren't cute, no matter what Hollywood tries to say. Some days are eons easier than others, some days are just hollow and numb, struggling to get out of bed so I end up being late to whatever it is I had to do, and there are some days where I will ugly cry in my car on a delivery. Having depression and anxiety absolutely suck, especially when an episode/attack will pop up out of nowhere. I know things won't suck forever, just gotta be patient and ride out this fucked up rollercoaster called life. Be kind, for you might not know what someone is going through. Peace, love, and happiness (even if it's temporary) my friends. This too shall pass. 💜 #depressionsucks #anxietysucks #tryingtostaypositiveandstrong #peaceloveandhappiness #depressionawareness #anxietyawareness #mentalhealthawareness #bekindalways #loopdyloop #emotionssucksometimes #blackandwhite #dontmindme #imnotokay #imokay #derp
