    Letters to Autumn 5

    Dear Autumn, I am very easily stressed. It’s the anxiety disorder in me. It’s only a minor problem. Well not really all that minor but you catch my drift. There is a part of me that thinks that maybe it will get better the more I get my anxiety under control, but to be honest I don’t think it will. The only thing that will get better is the way that I deal with it. And I am getting better at it. I mean shit hits the fan in some areas of my life and instead of having a full on breakdown in the disabled toilet I can just take…

    Meditate

    Hi, Hey, Hello! Now as I have mentioned many times before one my goals for this year is to get into a proper habit when it comes to meditation.  And therefore I decided to make an active decision and just dedicate 10 minutes of every day to meditating. That’s all Headspace asks of you. And also in May my subscription to Headspace was due for renewal and I didn’t elect to cancel it meaning that I had to make that 50 odd quid I spent on it worth it. And so I made it my mission for May to meditate every day. And I did it. I have also only…

    Celebrate

    Hi, Hey, Hello! Today is R’s birthday, although we celebrated it yesterday with alcohol, karaoke and food. Anyway, this is not about that. It’s about me. I hate celebrating anything. Literally anything related to me can just kind of crawl up into a corner and I will then quite happily forget about it. I don’t want anything to do with them. It’s a little to do with the fact that I hate being under any kind of spotlight but honestly for the most part, it just all sends my anxiety up the damn wall. It starts to feel like there is all this pressure on things when in actual fact…

    Anger

    Hi, Hey, Hello! Anger is a weird place to start this month challenge for myself. It suggest aggression in some way. And maybe this is coming from a place of aggression on some level. Or maybe not. This isn’t anger in a general sense. This is just something that has started to bubble under the surface early last month as I came to a realization about something. Now there was a whole month or so where I pretty openly talked about self-care and mental health and all that jazz. I’ve finally stopped just sweeping that one under the carpet, funnily enough for the sake of my mental health. It feels…

    Appreciate

    Hi, Hey, Hello! And so we have come to the final day of this little blogging project and all talk about self care. It’s been quite the whirlwind. It also kind of made me confront some things about myself that I hadn’t ever really thought about and in that way in some way was just a very good exercise in self care and reminding me to take care of my mental health a bit better. Because throughout this whole thing I have noticed that I have been letting it slip a little bit and I am trying to avoid what happened last year and get my shit kind of back…
