Coming to terms with having mental illness is hard, especially in a society where everyone likes to sweep things under the carpet and pretend everything is fine. I'm still trying to understand how my head works and why I behave and feel things the way I do. It seems as though as soon as I begin to accept one aspect of my condition another ugly characteristic takes over. There are times where I feel totally hopeless and can't see any way out, and others where my stubbornness and refusal to give up allows me to carry on. Recovery isn't linear, and it's fucking exhausting and painful sometimes. I'm starting to understand that it's not a failure to have a bad day or to relapse, it's just part of the process and it's actually okay. The fact that I'm still here is a success itself and anything beyond that, even just getting dressed, is a bonus. #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #keeptalkingmh #breakthestigma #selfacceptance #recoverywarrior #positivethinking #positivebeatsperfect
Officially 24 years old! Wow what a year it has been, 23 has been a pretty crazy life changing year for me. It will be the age I look back on when I finally sort help for my mental health and stuck to it, it’s the age I lost some friends and realised who my real true friends are. Although 23 was one giant battle field for me I do no regret it one bit, this is the age that I changed my life around to save myself, it’s the age that I put myself first and finally found the strength inside me that I never knew I had and started to learn how to love myself. Thank you 23 for all the life lessons, bring on 24! #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthstigma #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthissues #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthproblems #mentalhealthhelp #mentalhealthwarriors #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalillnessisreal #mentalillnesswarrior #mentalillnessadvocate #mentalillnesssupport #mentalillnessmatters #mentalillnesssurvivor

For those suffering from mental health, It takes a lot of courage and inner strength to admit you need a helping hand. So when you make yourself vulnerable, give yourself a pat on the back. * Mental Health - - ______________________________________________ ☑️FOLLOW👉🏽 @gs_golden_supplement ☑️FOLLOW👉🏽 @gs_golden_supplement ☑️FOLLOW👉🏽 @gs_golden_supplement ______________________________________________ #lifecoaches #positivevibes #liveauthentic #youmatter #goldensupplement #mentalhealth #psychology #mentalillness #keeptalkingMH #suicideprevention #nootropic #bethedifference #recovery #today #wellness #stopthestigma #endthestigma #breakthestigma #anxietyrecovery #ptsd #suicideawareness #mentalhealthmatters #depressionawareness
We live in an age where we are constantly distracted with mobiles and television. We don't even understand what is going inside us. When going through a break-up, we usually distract ourselves with trying to meet someone else. Like the next person who comes would take care of our hurt. In the long run you'll understand that doesn't work. It is simply ignoring our own feelings. Those who have bad memories of their past would understand this well. . .

A symptom of an unhealthy relationship is shutting down (multiple) parts of yourself to adapt to your partners personality/wants/needs. This includes quieting your values/ sex drive / desire for affection/ romance/ etc . ✨ - - - #itsokaynottobeokay #relaxation #guidedimagery #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #anxiety #anxietyhelp #anxietyrecovery #health #healthyboundaries #wellness #purpose #balance #wholeheartedliving #ptsd #trauma #ptsdrecovery #recovery #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #intentionalliving #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthadvocate #safe #breathe #Mindfulness #meditation
I talk tough, but I have people pleasing tendencies and will definitely do it.
It is estimated that children spend approximately 7,800 hours in school over the course of their education.⁣ ⁣ There are a number of school related factors that increase the likelihood of mental health difficulties.⁣ ⁣ Academic stress: In one study, a large majority of children and young people reported that increased academic and exam stress had a negative impact on their mental health. This is extremely relevant in the Pakistani context as there has been an increased and sole emphasis on academic achievement in recent years. ⁣ ⁣ Bullying: A child being bullied may start to develop anger and aggression difficulties, may become withdrawn, or may start having attention and concentration difficulties in school because of always being worried about being targeted. ⁣ ⁣ Transitions: A child that has moved schools may not understand why they had to leave their friends and teachers and may become sad, aggressive, or withdrawn. Some children may also have a hard time adjusting to their new environment, new ways of learning, and making new friends.⁣ ⁣ Undiagnosed learning difficulties: children having difficulties learning may become easily frustrated and have frequent meltdowns. ⁣ ⁣ Poor student-teacher relationships: this is also very relevant in the Pakistani context. Bullying by teachers is still common and a huge issue and can lead to children losing motivation or developing school refusal or phobia. ⁣ ⁣ Lack of friendships: positive relationships can act as a buffer against mental health difficulties. Children that have a hard time making friends may find faults with themselves, may become aggressive, or start feeling lonely. ⁣ ⁣ #childmentalhealth #instamentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthpakistan #fightthestigma #instapsychology #mentalhealthmatters #childpsychologist #riskfactors #risks #prevention #preventivecare #children #instachildren #pakistan #instapakistan #preventionworks
This one is for anyone who is going through a hard time and battling with persistent thoughts. 💚 This is one of my absolute favourite quotes! 🌹 —————————————————— The dark nights; When you are faced with these long nights and you feel alone, you feel like giving up, you feel like there is nothing left, you feel like you have no purpose, like there's no fight left in you. Read this and always remember 💚 You are not alone, reach out, reach out to anyone even if it's just a hotline, there is always someone out there that will just sit and listen and there is also many who would be willing to help. It's not weak to speak! I actually believe it's a very brave thing to do especially when your at your lowest. Concentrate on the small things before you, you will soon understand there is plenty left. Most importantly you DO have purpose, you woke up today! You do have fight left in you, start telling yourself this and take baby steps, as long as your not giving up that's enough. Sometimes we have to go back to basics and work our way back up the ladder to reach the top. Tomorrow is a new day, a fresh start, a new chance. Don’t believe everything you think! Don't give up yet, it's not your time. Hold on, be strong! Wake up, dress up and show the world how strong you are. #tupacshakur #darknights #thoughts #hardtimes #yournotalone #reachout #speakup #youarevalid #youareworthy #youmatter #youhavepurpose #dontgiveup #itaintweaktospeak #depression #ptsd #anxiety #mentalhealth #suicideawareness #suicideprevention #keepfighting #youarestrong #yougotthis #dontjudge #judgementfreezone #recovery #selfcare #mentalhealthmatters #lifequotes #sharethelove —————————————————— 24 hour emergency contacts (Australia) Lifeline - 131 114 Mental Health Crisis - 1800 629 354 Domestic Violence Crisis - 6280 0900 Rape Crisis - 6247 2525 Alcohol and Drug - 6207 9977
The hidden truth behind photos and social media. Middle Photo - Taken 7 days ago looking forward to going to college. Outside Photos - This morning, struggling to even start applying make up to go to College, running late and in a mood to close myself of from everyone. Still can't decide if I can go or not..... A photo can be a powerful. Just going to leave this here to reflect on when I'm in a better place 👌 #mentalhealthmatters #feelingnumb #findingithardtobreathe #keepingitreal #anxiety #physicalsymptoms #troublesleeping

Many people experience mental health problems for a long time before seeking help. In fact, 60% of sports people who feel they have an issue with their mental health haven’t sought help. 🥊 Our ‘Intro to Mental Health First Aid’ course helps people grow in confidence, focus on their strengths and build new skills, all the while challenging the stigma surrounding mental health. 🥊 Challenging the stigma is very important to us. We know from research that 1 in 2 people would want others to know they had a mental health problem. This stigma is causing silence and in turn people don’t ask for help when they need it.

Your vibe attracts your tribe . . I heard a great talk last night from the wonderful @nadiafiner1 who spoke about attracting your ‘ideal clients’ by simply being yourself (sounds too easy right?) That’s because it is!! . . Your niche, your selling point is ‘YOU’ what makes you stand out from the crowd and what attracts like minded people to you.. . . Be authentic in what you do and your passion will shine through. . . One of the most important things you can do in your business is just to be yourself, people generally buy from people they like and trust and if they don’t like what your doing then they are simply not your ‘people’ . . Find your tribe they are out there waiting for you 😊 . . . . . .#motivation #success #inspiration #business #goals #entrepreneurlife #successful #entrepreneurs #entrepreneurmindset #girlboss #bossbabe #femaleentrepreneur #entrepreneur #girlpower #dreambigger #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mindfulness #wellness #recovery #happiness #psychology #life #healthylifestyle #meditation #positivity #loveyourself
PLEASE READ⬇️⬇️⬇️ An incredible post from our Amazing Supporter @danarxna ❤️❤️ With someone who struggles to travel, go to job interviews or be away from home for too long I think that people need to take a good look at how amazing Anne Hegarty is doing in I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. For someone who has autism they can have major sensory issues which makes a person much more sensitive to situations. For Anne to come this far in the jungle already is amazing and I love how everyone in the jungle supports her whenever she needs it. Remember to never judge someone until you meet them and hear their story. Stay Kind Always. Every flower blooms in its own time. - - - - - - #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #anxiety #depression #selflove #selfcare #mindfulness #love #therapy #meditation #wellness #motivation #wellbeing #healing #mentalhealthmatters #health #awareness #mentalillness #samaritans #life #recovery #fitness #counseling #positivevibes #loveyourself #mentalhealthadvocate #support #bodypositive #psychotherapy #bhfyp

Developing healthy relationships between friends and family is very important on the road to recovery. Unhealthy or dysfunctional relationships can often trigger negative emotions or stress which can fuel eating disorders. Find people who you feel comfortable and happy around so you can all share the positive energy. 👥💜
Repost 📷 @themightysite We’re all going through something, and it often takes courage to acknowledge or share that something, even if that just means showing up when life feels hard or unfair.

Some may not feel comfortable talking to anyone about their disorder or even telling people about it and that’s completely fine.

Having a mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of. Talking about your struggles and your mental health is courageous, and an act that should be commended. You deserve to have the support you need, and most importantly, to get the help you need to work on your mental health. Do not let anyone or anything tell you that having a mental illness makes you weak and will hold you back; the possibilities are endless and you are a warrior fighting to make your mental health a priority. Ask for help, speak out about your struggles, and tackle your mental illness! . . #psychotherapistdubai #psychotherapists #psychotherapist #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthdubai #mentalhealthuae #breakthestigma #itsok #psychology #psychologist #psychologistdubai #dubai #workingindubai #psychology #psychologist #therapy #mentalhealthawareness #trustyourgut #trustyourintuition #heretohelp #itaintweaktospeak #therapyhelps #heal #recovery #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #mypsychologistsays #putyourselffirst #therapyworks

Every time you thought you couldn't go on. You did! ✨ . I apologize for being a little MIA lately. . My mind has been elsewhere. . As you may be able to relate. I have had days where I thought I could NEVER go on another day. Sometimes due to severe depression or anxiety or just having a very shitty day. I have been struggling a lot with work-related anxiety lately.  I always have really. I feel like I can't talk to my family about it. I constantly doubt my competence and feel like a fraud every single day. Also known as "imposter syndrome". . What is imposter syndrome? . Imposter syndrome can be defined as a collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist despite evident success. 'Imposters' suffer from chronic self-doubt and a sense of intellectual fraudulence that override any feelings of success or external proof of their competence. . Do you also suffer from workplace anxiety and or imposer syndrome?

Stunning colours of autumn..
• Mindfulness • . . Another one that gets a lot of hype and sounds too fluffy to be true, but isn’t. . . Mindfulness is a way of thinking. At a simple level it’s being aware of what is happening as it is happening; noticing emotions, thoughts and surroundings as they occur. If you are focusing on what is happening now you can’t be drifting off worrying about the future or ruminating on the past (tendancies that feed depression and anxiety). However mindfulness is actually way more than that. Aside from giving you a rest from the disco mind, mindfulness is clever in that it also starts to build new neural pathways, which in turn has significant benefits on the brain. . . According to research after only 8 weeks of mindful practice the amygdala (brain region responsible for impulsivity, emotional response, fight or flight) starts to shrink and the prefrontal cortex (responsible for reflection and thoughtfulness) starts to thicken. Connections in the brain also start to modify - the connection between the amygdala and the rest of the brain gets weaker, and the connections between areas of the brain for concentration and attention get stronger. The mind starts to become less impulsive and reactive, and more thoughtful and calm. . . Mindfulness is a form of brain training that’s very effective. Once the new neural pathways have started to build the mind is likely to support this way of thinking even when it’s not being practiced, so the effects become cumulative. You don’t need to be wandering around being mindful all the time - every little helps - so just do a bit when you can. . . I don’t spend my days being aware of every tiny thing, but I do employ a bit of this training in my daily life. At traffic lights I pay attention to my breathing, and when walking I try and notice the ground underfoot with each step. When I’m walking my dog I put my phone away and notice ‘what can I see, what can I hear, what can I smell and what can I feel’. . . Rewiring your brain to be happier and healthier by simply noticing your feet when you walk?. So simple, so effective, give it a try. . . #mindfulness #rewiring #selfcarethreads

Dear brave girl in Uniqlo, I know you're fighting your own demons. I understand it must be hard. I hope you no longer have to cut yourself to feel alive. I hope those scars are enough to prove you are. And I hope you find more meaning in this life to finally stop cutting yourself. You are beautiful just as you are, and you don't need those cuts to feel you are. I hope you keep fighting and you keep going, and that I will see you again. . . . . . #depression #depressionawareness #awareness #seekhelp #itsnotsadness #dontgiveup #keepgoing #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #suicideprevention #mentalwellness #mentalhealthrecovery #anxietyrecovery #selfharmawareness #yourstoryisntoveryet #ptsd #suicideawareness #breakthesilence #stigmafighter #majordepression #endthestigma #breakthestigma #stopthestigma #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery
If today you are putting yourself down for feeling like you’ve not done enough, you’ve not been enough, and there’s this insane pressure to be better than everyone, just remember that you don’t have to be better than everyone, you just have to be the best version of yourself. Trust yourself that even though you have not given your whole time best, you have given your best under the circumstances. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t, and that’s life. Yes, when you give it your all and it doesn’t work out, it hurts like hell. Yes, sometimes the circumstances suck, not allowing you do your best. It’s hard to let go of the fact that if the circumstances were on your side you’d be in a much better place. But remember that this is an obstacle that you will cross. It’s not permanent no matter how much it feels like things are never going to change and we’ll be stuck here forever. Realise that the act of holding on and not letting it go is one of the obstacles. It’s not helping you. What’s done is done. You can’t drive ahead while looking backwards. This shadow or ghost of a scenario, that didn’t happen, that you hold on to with pain and regret is harming you. Accept whatever that has happened and focus on what you have to do to get back at it. It takes a lot of time, nothing is an overnight process. It takes time and patience. So give yourself time and patience. Some days you might have been able to move mountains and you have moved them. That’s amazing. Some days you’ve just barely had the strength to move a pebble and you’ve moved them. That’s amazing too. #fight #keepfighting #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthsupport #support #raisingawareness #stopthestigma #breakthestigma #struggle #strength #life #lost #love #hope #broken #hopeless #staystrong #stronger #neverfeelashamed #neverbeashamed #help #care #positivethinking #positivevibes #positivity #positive #proud #beproudofyourself #mentalwellness
OPTIMAL STRESS - Yerkes-Dodson Law According to the “The Yerkes-Dodson law,” performance increases with physiological or mental arousal (stress) but only up to a point. When the level of stress becomes too high, performance decreases. Inadequate arousal can result in boredom, reduced performance, disengagement & distractibility. Given this relationship between stress & performance, it may be helpful to understand how much stress you are currently experiencing. If you are curious, take the following test (which is adapted from the commonly used Perceived Stress Scale, created by Sheldon Cohen, Tom Kamarck, and Robin Mermelstein): https://hbr.org/2016/04/are-you-too-stressed-to-be-productive-or-not-stressed-enough Self awareness regarding the level of stress or pressure that is optimal for your wellbeing & performance is pivotal for psychological balance. At times, we need to consciously make adjustments to move back into our optimal stress zone.

Self limitations -- "It is not primarily our physical selves that limit us, but rather our mindset about our physical limits". Ellen J Manger. Self limitating beliefs can generate self sabotaging behaviour that creates a self fulfilling prophecy. A self-fulfilling prophecy is a prediction that directly or indirectly causes itself to become true, by the very terms of the prophecy itself, due to positive feedback between belief and behaviour. Eg. Thinking you will fail an exam can lead to a refusal to study or procrastination The mind is amazing - it can urge us on to try, put obstacles in our way and restrict our potential. Remember, just because you think it, doesn't make it so.

BODY IMAGE ISSUES Body Dysmorphic disorder is characterised by an preoccupation with one or more perceived defects or flaws in appearance that are not observable or appear slight to others (DSM V). It is considered to be a form of obsessive compulsive disorder. BDD can be differentiated from the distorted body image which is a defining feature of eating disorders, in that distorted body image involves a preoccupation with overall body mass, whereas BDD involves focusing on a specific part or feature. The typical age of onset of BDD is ages 12-13, with an average onset of 16-17. Some symptoms include: Excessive self-consciousness Experience persistent and intrusive thoughts about the imagined flaw  Feeling defined by their flaw. Are fearful of being seen as flawed Frequent checking of appearance Attempting to camouflage or alter the perceived defect Avoidance of public or social situations or triggers that increase distress. They may at times be housebound Needless cosmetic and dermatological treatments. Depression Isolation BDD is chronic, but responds favorably to treatment with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy found to be an effective and evidence based method of treatment. CBT challenges irrational beliefs & perceptions regarding the body feature.
