Time to learn. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love learning. Being out of traditional school and an entrepreneur, I get the power to decide where, how, what and ways I can learn something. This month I am at Staples Studio I have already learned about intentional & gratitude based processes, video marketing and how to start basic calligraphy. So cool! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am grateful for education. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #grateful #staplesstudio #learning #readingleadstodisco #education #entrepreneur #torontoartist #mentalhealthmatters #createyourbeing

here‘s what it feels like to battle anxiety through my eyes. the full video is in my bio.
* Why retreat out of fear of a lovable duet? It's not my first, escape is what I do best to this I can attest. I shake and shiver when it's unfamiliar, waiting to hear the last striking chord only to re-play the broken record. #bpd #anxiety #fear #love #relationships #mentalhealth #depression #ocd #alcoholism #acceptance #dbt #mentalillness #drugabuse #speakup #mindfulness #selfcare #recovery #addiction #selfawareness #mentalhealthmatters #blogger #mentalhealthawareness #endthestigma #innerpeace #selfcompassion #writingcommunity #poetry #writersofinstagram #poets #poetrycommunity
Have you found this yet? @thegoodquotes.c
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me? I call bullshit. Practice the pause. Pause before judging. Pause before assuming. Pause before accusing. Pause whenever you’re about to react harshly, and you’ll avoid doing and saying things you’ll later regret. Words can hurt and leave an invisible scar. Some people struggle enough daily without the added unsolicited opinions and harsh words of others thrown their way. #mentalhealthmatters #bealight #soulfood

You owe yourself one hour a day of self maintenance. It can include reading, writing, yoga, exercise, meditation, painting or whatever, but you owe it to yourself. One hour. 1/24 of your day. That’s less than 5%. It matters, it really does. Make it count. You are capable of doing this. Stop waiting until you “feel like it”. Do it because you’ll love yourself better after creating this new habit. 60 minutes.
A quick self-check to bring you back to the moment. What do YOU do to stay grounded? We'd love to know your thoughts 👇 - Follow @sossafetymag for more!

Thank you @musingsfromthemoon for these beautiful and wise words. Motherhood brings a mixture of emotions. Some of these feelings will be familiar to you, but some will be new, and sometimes scary. It is SO NORMAL to have mixed feelings about newly becoming a mother. However, if you’re finding that your feelings are dark and frequent please call for help. Tell someone close to you that you are possibly dealing with postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety and ask them to come over to be with you. Then, call your care provider as soon as possible to discuss how to overcome these thoughts. If you feel you or your baby are in immediate danger please call 911. Do not be ashamed by these thoughts and feelings. Postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety affects more women than what most people are made aware of. Unfortunately, it’s not discussed openly often enough which leads the majority of new moms to feel as though they are alone in their struggle. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Keep the lines of communication open so that the people who love and support you can help you through this difficult time. . . . #midwife #newbornbabies #mother #pregnancy #birthwithoutfear #strongmom #motherandchild #babycuddles #bcmidwife #midwiferyisforeverybody #maternalcare #healthymamas #yourbirth #spiritualpregnancy #breastfeeding #babyformula #pregnancyservices #thrive #abbotsford #mapleridge #keepgrowing #babies #chilliwackmidwives #sharechilliwack #bcmidwife #postpartumcare #postpartumdepression #makeyourvoiceheard #mentalhealthmatters #postpartummentalhealth

I fought with myself about working out today. I have felt pretty crappy all day and came home with determination, a few sips into my preworkout I wasn't feeling it. Motivation only gets you so far. My motivation today was nonexistent so I had to tap into my determination and consistency. I did a shorter workout but I still did it. Nothing is going to bring me down and knock me out today! #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #dogmom #catmom #horror #boringselfcare #goals
👏 Adaptogenic smoothies all day long! @jessy.wallace 🍌 Banana, frozen berries, spinach, peanut butter almond milk, and stress busters, Ashwagandha and our fav Reishi mushroom 🤩🍄 - What’s going in your smoothie today? - 🍄 Reishi Mushroom Reduces Stress and Improves Anxiety and Depression. 🧘‍♂️🙏✨ - Reishi’s most exciting and perhaps its most significant health benefit is its calming and stress-reducing ability. Reishi is known as the ultimate anti-stress herb. This makes it an important ally in today's fast-paced and over-stressed world to keep our mental health strong. - Stress is one of the biggest underlying factors in disease. Studies have shown how stress can affect our physiology and create disease. There’s growing evidence that exposure to trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and associated stress responses may lead to increased autoimmune conditions. - In TCM, Reishi mushroom is regarded as the best "spirit elevating" (Shen) tonic that positively promotes mental well-being, calmness, and helps cultivate more peace, love, and happiness in one's life. Reishi has a long history of use in ancient China by Taoist monks and sages for cultivating spiritual energy, reducing stress, calming the mind, and transforming negative energy in the body. - For some people, the very idea of sickness and disease is enough to debilitate them whether they are facing illness or not. Reishi’s calming action puts people in a relaxed state which may help alleviate many of the psychological problems associated with patients dealing with a disease. - In a study of 48 breast cancer patients taking Reishi, they reported feeling "less anxiety and depression and better quality of life” after taking Reishi for just four weeks. - 👉 Learn more in our latest article ‘Top 17 Longevity Super Powers of Reishi Mushroom’.

This is your reminder to do something for yourself. Setting aside just 5 minutes a day to practice self-care can make a huge difference, and shift your mindset. 💫 . . Many of us lead extremely busy lives, and give so much of ourselves to others that our own well-being is placed on the back burner. Serving others is wonderful, but how can you care for others if you’re not properly caring for yourself? When we are feeling tired or burnt out it is more difficult to give our all, and be the best we can be.💫 . . There are so many different ways to practice self-care, and it may take trial and error to find what works best for you. I believe we should all practice self-care by having a healthy diet, getting exercise, and getting a good nights sleep. 💫 . . Part of my daily self-care routine is setting aside 10 minutes to meditate. This is how I feel centered and at peace. I also like to read positive and inspirational quotes before bed, to end my day on a good note. 💫 . . Some other ways you can practice self-care daily are: journaling, yoga, coloring/drawing, taking a bubble bath, watching a movie/show you enjoy, or reading. Like I said, there are a TON of different ways to practice self-care; all that matters is you’re doing something you enjoy. 💫 • • #selfcare #selfcaresunday #dailyreminder #positivevibesdaily #journalprompts #selfcaretips #selflove #selfcompassion #meditatedaily #positivenergy #happythoughts #yogalovers #selfhealer #mentalwellness #mentalwealth #emotionalwellness #mindbody #mindbodyspirit #holistichealing #holisticnutrition #spiritualbeing #soulful #deepakchopra #emotionalwellbeing #mentalhealthmatters #wellnessadvocate #mindfuljourney #justbe #beherenow #mindfulliving
When I took the photo on the left I was in Disney world with Brady & my family. Happiest place on earth right? Well not if you hate how you feel & look in every single picture you take. This one specifically was my breaking point.. I remember right after taking it I texted my best friend asking if she knew of any editing apps that would make me look skinnier. True story. I sent her the photo to edit it for me before I even posted it, I’m so embarrassed saying this now but that’s just how insecure I was. I didn’t wanna post a single picture from the whole trip and I honestly didn’t post any other photos besides this one (after it was edited it). That’s what stopped me in my tracks & made me take a second look at myself and my life. I didn’t want to have to edit all of my pictures in order to feel comfortable posting them on social media. I didn’t want to have to keep buying larger size of clothes. I didn’t want to have to wear a one-piece swimsuit because I was so uncomfortable in a bikini. I wanted to feel comfortable in my own skin. I wanted to be able to rock a crop top without pulling and tugging every two seconds if ya know what I mean. Once that trip was over is when I started working out and eating healthier. I fully committed to a program. I learned that you don’t need to workout for 2-3 hours in a gym and you don’t need to cut out carbs or count your calories. I found out that you can still enjoy your favorite foods, it’s all about b a l a n c e . Today I tried on this same outfit & the change I not only saw but felt, just wow😭🙌🏻 I wasn’t bloated. I wasn’t sucking in. I was confident. This is what I’ve been working for & will continue to work for.
Ever find yourself changing a little bit just to get along with certain people? I used to find myself doing this, and, while you don’t notice initially, over time your mindset starts to change. You feel a little lost within yourself, and sometimes a little empty 😓 One simple realisation changed a lot for me: Not everyone will/has to like you 🙏🏽✨ Not everyone will vibe with your energy, and that is fine because you actually don’t vibe with theirs either. Negative energy is contagious. Make sure you are surrounded by people who have an energy you admire. Life is too big and too short to spend it dimming your light for others 💡✨ #Positivity #Negative #LifeLessons #Recovery
SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK! 🎤 Never be afraid to feel the way that YOU feel. Never feel like you have to come up with a reason to justify your feelings!

a gentle reminder that you did well this year. you met new people, learned new things and felt new feelings. you did so many things that made you scared. you picked yourself up off the floor after feeling completely defeated or heartbroken. there were some really tough nights but you survived them all. you made people happy just by existing. you accepted many goodbyes but the serendipitous meetings made up for them. it was your own hard work that paid off but you always downplay it or compare yourself to others. that’s not fair on yourself. you’ve come so far from the first day of this year. you have more wisdom and strength now. yes, other people seem more “successful” but does that even matter? please don’t think so lowly of yourself to only think about your failures. 2018 was your year of growth. I hope you take a moment to be kind to yourself, and believe that 2019 will be even better. #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthjourney #believeinyourself #takecareofyourmentalhealth #keepgoing

New blog with @childrens !🎈Short, sweet, and to the point. • “The new normal: How to holiday after separation.” 🌲🎁❄️🎅🏽 • Below is an excerpt. Read the full blog at bit.ly/2QxEwOh (link in bio)! • “Direct communication between parents is best. If this cannot be done, then a mediator can be utilized, as long as that mediator is never your child. For instance, parents should refrain from saying to their child, “Tell your father…” or “Tell your mother…” because this instantly puts the child in place as mediator.” . . . . . . #blog #childrenshealth #holidays #holidaystress #parenting #parentingblog #psychology #childdevelopment #childpsychology #childpsychologist #dallaspsychologist #teenpsychologist #expert #blogger #divorce #separation #parents #therapy #advice #therapist #advice #counseling #parentingtips #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #parenthood #motherhood #fatherhood

{Mindful Self-Compassion} // 🍃 What do anxiety, fear, procrastination and unhealthy eating habits all have in common?? 🍃 They all stem from disappointment we allow ourselves to feel when we fall short of our self imposed benchmarks of excellence and unreasonably high standards. Knowing that the failure to achieve a set goal will bring out our self critic who will mercilessly nag in our head repeating that we are a failure, makes us feel uneasy and even when we surprise ourselves by succeeding it's never enough. We are not convinced that we are good enough. We subconsciously know that one day we will disappoint ourselves, and we fear the experience. One day we are bound to eat more cake than we allow, we are bound to make a mistake, we are bound to say the wrong thing. So we are stuck in the loop, where the negative feeling triggers the negative behaviour that triggers the negative feeling. 🍃 We can choose to set ourselves free by embracing self-compassion. It allows us to behave in healthier ways by ditching our strive to be someone we are not. You want to feel no guilt when you break the diet. If fact when you are compassionate towards yourself, diet and restriction is not a part of your plan altogether. 🍃 Admiting to yourself that you can't always succeed makes it a lot easier to act on your goals, and in turn ironically succeed more often. 🍃 So, today you start your day with mindful self-compassion and let go of judgement. We all miss the mark, we all break the rules, we all are destined to fail sooner or later (And get up again). It's part of our common humanity. 🍃 Embrace vulnerability Embrace self-compassion Embrace being human. 🍃 #wellnessjourney #wisewoman #holisticwellness #mentalhealthmatters #selfworth #iamwellandgood #midfulness #kindfulness #auckland #mentalhealthblogger #healing #vulnerability #nourishyourself #spiritualgrowth #mindbodysoul #liveauthentic #lookwithin #therapy #mindfulnessmatters #meditation #selfcompassion #mybeautifulmess #liveinspired #feelyourfeelings #mentalhealthawareness #wellness
The holiday season usually brings with it a lot of family time and social events. And with those things comes the need for BOUNDARIES. I did a post about boundaries right before Thanksgiving (What can I say? They’re pretty important) but I think I should start from the beginning. —— What is a boundary?: A boundary is a limit that we set for ourselves that indicates what language or behavior we see as acceptable or unacceptable toward us. What are you ok with talking about? What kinds of touch do you permit? Are you interested in the advice of others? Will you take responsibility for others’ actions? Boundaries are set for you, by you, and are established to keep you physically and mentally safe and healthy. —— Come back tomorrow for part ✌🏼
Here's a thing: This article in @newyorkermag is supposed to be joking about passé "dating rules" but it's got this little joke about people under 40 and phone calls tucked in there. . What the hell is wrong with people these days? Yeah, I myself used to think it was social faux-pas to call people, then I realized that was a Massive Amount Of Anxiety making me fear social rejection and that actually hearing someone's voice and their intonation and their expressiveness is SO nice and SO much more human and wtf are we doing avoiding phone calls? . ??? Are we really all so afraid of each other that someone who makes phone calls is compared to a murderer? How utterly unhealthy. Utterly. Unhealthy. Unhuman. Uck! . Disclaimers: Some people like video calls, I think that's a pretty good thing. Some people have phone call anxiety, I do not in any way intend to shame anyone for their mental health!

T͙o͙ m͙y͙ f͙r͙i͙e͙n͙d͙s͙ A good idea I thought of this morning while drinking some coffee and thinking about how I was going to take on the day; Sometimes it is hard for people close to you to understand why you act the way that you do on your bad days so I decided to write some letters to my closest friends explaining why I get in certain moods that I do and why I pull away sometimes📝. Just an idea I thought I’d share with you guys :) ! It’s important to explain to people close to you why sometimes you may act a certain way pertaining to your mental health. Let them know you love them even when it’s hard for you to show it !💐 . . . . . #mentalhealthsupport #depression #anxiety #mentalhealth #recovery #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthawareness #health #mentalillness #selfcare #bipolar #selflove #wellness #love #mindset #stress #motivation #invisibleillness #healthandwellness #healthymind #mentalwellness #mind #mentalhealthday #help #healthylife #mentalstrength #overthinking #mentalhealthawarness via @hashtagexpert
Let's talk serious for a moment folks.... One in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness at some point in their lifetime. One of the biggest hurdles for anyone suffering from mental illness is overcoming the stigma. It is the number one reason why two-thirds of those living with a mental illness do not seek help. How many people did you speak with this week, 5, 10, 50? Do the math real quick and figure out how many on average have had or do have mental health issues... See the scope of this? Mental Illness touches almost everyone in some form or another! Our 2019 affirmation calendars will be available for delivery or pick up early this week. Proceeds will be donated to @bell_letstalk 2019 - Here is where the Bell Let's Talk funds have gone since 2010: ‍ * $1.6 million in grants for Military family support * $788K in grants for Indigenous communities * $3.53 million in grants for Children & Youth * 1,208,040 Individuals supported with access to mental health care ‍ Please help us help Bell Let's talk raise awareness about mental health issues.

I need me to be someone who drinks a lot of coffee today because I went on a 12AM k-mart shopping spree after my night shift last night 🤣🤷🏼‍♀️ ➵ Just a reminder for the heart that needs it ⚡️🌈
How about this for a #fbf ! I was scrolling through photos & came across this one from 5 years ago. I had just transitioned from nanny/server to full-time salary manager. My entire life, I thought that I hadn't truly succeeded until I had this impressive career. Little did I know here, was that while I spent all of my energy trying to climb the ladder & go after promotions & job titles, I would ultimately lose sight on what really matters to my own "success story". . What was lacking here, were my true intentions. I devoted my entire life to work. We often put so much emphasis on someone's worth as a person, depending on their profession or status. My ADHD specialist recently told me that my . "worth is not dependent on my profession or productivity, but rather on my character!" . I sat there & cried...why did I need to hear that from someone else to actually believe it? If I could go back in time, the things I would tell this girl if I had the chance, would be to just RUN! Run far far away from all the worry & fears in your head. Run away from this preconceived notion that your "success" is dependant on anything other that how kind you are, how hard you try, how much love you put out into the universe & your compassion for others. . Run as far as you can from anyone that takes your peace from you. Run from any group of people that are toxic for your wellbeing, morals, inspiration, positivity or make you ever question your worth as a human. Run physically as often as you can. You don't know what health restrictions & injuries will pop up in your future, restricting you from earning that runners high everyday again. Just simply Run! . For someone who was once so confident, fearless & passionate, how quickly your brain & body can turn on you! The more I was pushing to be this image of who I thought I had to be, the more I actually lost all sight of the real me. I lost myself completely. I honestly thought I would never make it out. Words cannot express the feelings of depression, anxiety or a lifelong learning disability, but spreading awareness can start the conversation. Being honest can help others find their truth & I want you to know you are worthy too!
YES! You’re that great
