Success!

SUCCESS

Before I begin, I want to send a shout-out to my virtual friend Katie, because her recent post actually inspired me to do…well…what I’m about to tell you I did.

Vacations are hard for me. Just search my blog and you will see that pretty much every time I’ve gone on vacation, I’ve had at least one horrific emetophobia-induced panic attack.  Continue reading “Success!”

My Top 3 “Self-Care” Methods

3 tips for (1)

Everyone seems to be obsessed with “self-care” lately – not that I’m saying it’s a bad thing or anything. Still, I am a bit skeptical about what self-care really means to some people…a lot of people work an insane amount of hours and never get enough sleep and eat terribly but that one bath bomb a month with a glass of wine…that’s self-care?  Continue reading “My Top 3 “Self-Care” Methods”

Everyday Motivation #2

dont stop

I have been learning the art of self-motivation lately. Don’t Stop Now is not only the name of my book, but also something I remind myself to do every day. Life is hard. Don’t stop now. Work is stressful. Don’t stop now. Overcoming anxiety? Yeah, don’t stop now with that one either.

When things get hard and you want to give up, don’t stop. You’ve come a long way, I know it.

Today is World Mental Health Day, and this year’s focus is on mental health in the workplace. I have not written a lot about how my mental illness has affected me at work, which is actually a bit strange, considering how much anxiety ‘work’ used to give me.  Continue reading “The Perfect Job – World Mental Health Day”

Wolves

You ever hear a song that really hits you? It might not even have anything to do with what you’re feeling, but you hang onto a lyric or two and you feel like it was written just for you? That’s how I feel about these lyrics from Wolves by Big Wreck. Which, by the way, is an awesome song. If you haven’t heard the song before, check it out below.

Girl vs Bush: An Illustrated Incident

Do you ever have those moments when you know, logically, that you are acting/thinking really irrationally? But you still can’t stop. You still can’t get that thought out of your head? If you have health anxiety/hypochondria or other forms of anxiety, you probably know what I mean. Let me share with you the incident of two weeks ago.  Continue reading “Girl vs Bush: An Illustrated Incident”

Another Bad Day – But That’s Okay

This should probably be titled “I Had A Bad Week,” but that just doesn’t sound as good. Plus, today was like, extra bad compared to the others. I also originally wanted to title it “I Had a Bad Day” (and yes, now that song is stuck in my head)

but apparently, I already have a post titled I Had a Bad Day (and if I’m being honest, that’s one of my personal favourite posts, so you should definitely check it out). Continue reading “Another Bad Day – But That’s Okay”

Lame Ducks

A few weeks ago, I finally set up a contact page. I’ve wanted to connect with other anxiety/mental health bloggers for a while to hopefully begin some sweet collaborations and thought this was the best way to do it. Well, I received my very first spam email the other day. And instead of immediately trashing it, I read it.  Continue reading “Lame Ducks”
