Hello…again

Hey Friends,

With much internal kicking and screaming, I decided to bring the blog back. My mission is to help people and introduce new ideas when it comes to mental health. Well, some old ideas too 🙂 If any of you have any ideas, please feel free to get a hold of me.

Without further ado!

My challenge to you is to start a list of thing you are thankful for EVERYDAY. It can be one thing or 100 things. It’s all up to you. It can be something as small as a nap or as big as a trip to Japan. Just do it.

Good luck 🙂

Coping Skills · Me · Mental Health

Well, Hello again.

So it’s been a bit since I wrote an entry. I thought I didn’t need to write, but it turns out I do. It’s helpful.

The past few weeks has been challenging. I’ve been tired, anxious, and frustrated for being so tired all the time.

To regulate my sleep cycle I haven’t been taking naps as much, but feel myself getting cranky or depressed around dinner time. It’s just a bunch of mood swings that have been leaving me drained at the end of the day. I can hardly speak without sounding like a 5-year-old mumbling and being confused. It’s like I expire at a certain time.

I have been struggling to get a hold of help, but have been as diligent as I can.

It could just be me overthinking things, mind stuff, meds messing with, or something else.

My friends, family, co-workers, and boyfriend have been pretty patient and amazing. They also challenge me in ways that I never been challenged. Looking at things in a different perspective than my own has been helping a lot.

Maybe I just need a bowl of ramen in my life. Ramen fixes everything, right?

Coping Skills

Calm Down

“Breath a deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth”

“Inhale…exhale”

This has been a nightly thing for me. Actually, it is throughout the day. Monthly doctor visits, drinking lots of water, trying to stay calm, and hoping I will sleep at night without waking up multiple times.

You got this.

It won’t be forever.

It seems forever.

Stay brave.

I can’t. I am tired. It’s hard.

You got this.

Happiness Jar

Greetings Earthlings,

I got this idea at the start of February from The Mighty. It’s a bit late but better late than never. Right? So the idea is to fill your jar with happy thoughts. It’s easy as that! You can also customize it with paint and whatnot. I haven’t gotten around to doing that yet, but I will keep you updated.

So here it is:

file_001

I didn’t have little papers to fill it with, but I found tabs that I haven’t used as a substitution for now.

file_000-2

So there you have it!

I hope you enjoyed this! Let me know if you have ideas that help with your mental health 🙂
