Goodbye darling Ampara! You really opened my eyes to what a beautiful country Sri Lanka is despite our leaders being a bunch of imbeciles. The kindness in Sri Lankan hearts, the beautiful natural landscape, the hot hot rice and curry breakfasts, enthusiastic community oriented people and most importantly humility. You taught me a lot as a person and as a Psychologist. You bestowed newfound energy in me. You provided my spirit with nourishment. This is one of the very few times that I’ve truly felt sad to leave a place I visited. It did have a profound impact on me. The work I managed to do, the people I interacted with and most importantly what I learnt from those interactions are plenty. I was watching nursing staff at the hospital mental health unit dispensing the night dose of medication to their patients just before I left, and my heart sang with joy when I witnessed the amount of compassion they share with those who are struggling with mental health problems. Beautiful things happen in our country and it’s important that we notice and pay attention to the positives too. I’ll be back. For sure. #ampara #mentalhealthwork #timetowinddownfortheyear #training #teaching #capacitybuilding #love #kindness #compassionatecare #psychiatry #psychology #sadtoleave
The art of listening is underrated. At times, it may be fear of realizing something you don't like or that you won't find the solution. Listen without criticism and without needing to be right. You need to build a foundation before you can build a strong home. You need to understand the problem before you can find the solution🙏💕 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #reflect #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #socialanxiety #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness #youarenotalone #keepgoing
So that’s a wrap! Three days of hard work at the Ampara District General Hospital training doctors, nurses, support staff, community support workers, Counsellor’s, teachers, police personnel and people from other professions. Three intense days, but my heart is full with all the love, encouragement and support I received from my trainees. What more can a trainer ask for. I am feeling sad about having to leave this evening but I know I will be back! There is so much work to do together. The Consultant Psychiatrist and her team did a marvelous job of hosting me and I am just so happy. #mentalhealthwork #training #counselling #sexed #workingwithsubstancemisuse #addiction #domesticviolence #familyproblems #lgbtiq #ampara #lk
It was a beautiful morning at the Ampara District General Hospital and I had yet another wholesome breakfast of rice, dhal, polsambol and egg. Dr. Hiranya then whisked me away to the auditorium to begin a half day training session on Psychological First Aid and Suicide Prevention for community support volunteers, police personnel, teachers, Counsellor’s, nurses, midwives, human rights commission staff, probations staff and hospital staff. This was followed by some input on suicide prevention. I am so happy because I got to spend time with such an amazing team who do so much for their community and they are all very interested in mental health promotion. Dr. Hiranya recently won the best mental health team award from #BMJ because of this team. Beautiful cohesion, and a passionate group of people. I feel so nourished and content with the work I managed to do today. I really believe that I improved their confidence levels and that they found new skills they can apply in their work. It’s so heartening to see this kind of team exist in Sri Lanka where things to be more hierarchical and power specific sometimes. Ampara is a beautiful example of how one humane, humble consultant psychiatrist can create a multidisciplinary team and of how to work together in a team. Amazing morning! Onwards to working with dialysis nurses in the evening, talking about self care and end of life issues. #ampara #mentalhealthwork #communityvolunteers #multidisciplinary #biopsychosocial #suicideprevention #pfa #psychologicalfirstaidtraining #mentalhealthteam #lka
I arrived in Ampara this morning and it was raining cats and dogs. Silent streets, empty pavements and desolate electrical wires humming in the background. The sight of raindrops hitting the hard, tired tarred road was beautiful and you could feel the cleansing happening. I arrived at the Ampara District General Hospital and stood outside the accident and emergency service, waiting for the consultant Psychiatrist, Dr. Hiranya (more about her later) to pick me up and drive me to my accommodation. Beautiful green surroundings, open spaces and a friendly hospital even equipped with a buggy cart to shift patients from one building to another. My day began with a hearty feed of rice, dhal and coconut Sambol with a wholesome full boiled egg. I was then taken to the mental health unit of the hospital where there were friendly doctors, nurses, psychiatric social workers, community psychiatry nurses, occupational therapists and support staff all attending the day’s programme. I am really touched and impressed at the same time because of the diversity of the team and also especially because of the support staff being encouraged to attend. It’s a solid team. The morning consisted of basic teaching in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and the afternoon was on Motivational Interviewing. At the end, a nurse in her feedback said that I modeled what I said as a trainer and that they saw me respect them and they in order learnt how to respect their clients. This was definitely a turning point and a milestone for me as a trainer and facilitator and I am so grateful for all the opportunities I have had in the past 5 years to grow. Onwards to facilitating a fun/entertainment session for junior doctors at the hospital this evening, More updates tomorrow. #mentalhealthwork #doingwhatilove #amparadgh #psychiatry #multidisciplinaryteam #biopsychosocial #cbt #motivationalinterviewing #lka
With the New Year coming, there will be lots of resolutions🙂. Sometimes, the pressure to keep pushing through can be stressful and enough to stop altogether. Don't be hard on yourself if you need to take a break halfway through. Whatever your goal may be, know that this is your journey. Slow and steady is sometimes the best way💙 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #reflect #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #socialanxiety #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness #youarenotalone #keepgoing

For anyone following you might have noticed I put up a post earlier in the week about not reacting well to my new meds.. . Well after that post things got bad really really bad and I had to cold turkey off Latuda not ween off it or risk a full anaphylactic reaction. Since the last anaphylactic reaction killed me and zap back probably made my heart condition worse not a risk we could take. . I had to text my mgr (not call I actually couldn’t talk to people due to cognitive impairment) who is thankfully very understanding and not only drop my shifts last week with 3 hours notice but also request when I start back tomorrow (Monday) I’m on repetitive low cognation tasks for the week while we get me back on my Quetiapine (seroquel). . . I’m a little nervous about going back in case I don’t cope. But I’m glad I still have a job to go back to and not just because I need the money. Work for me is almost my only social interaction outside of family & medical appointments so I need it to keep a regular rhythm in my life to stay mentally, emotionally and physically balanced.. ..

Why should I be ashamed to talk about something that A - I never asked for or contributed to B - It a reality in this day and age Sometimes you would think that Mental illness is a plague or some sort of secret thing and yet we all know someone who has mental health issues. I am not ashamed of having mental health issues, I am ashamed at some of my behaviour and I work on that to make sure it is dealt with. Does having mental health issues make me weaker? No, it has made me more resilient and even artistic. Some parts of the Public may believe it makes us weaker and that is why I speak up and educate. Some of the strongest people that I know have mental health issues and have achieved a lot in life. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthaware #mentalhealthmatterstoo #mentalhealthcrisis #mentalhealththerapy #mentalhealthfighter #mentalhealthsystem #mentalhealthbloggeruk #mentalhealthworker #mentalhealthworks #mentalhealthday2017 #mentalhealthbujo #MentalHealthandInvisibleIllnessResources #mentalhealthawarenessweek2016 #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthhistory #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthtreatment
I have always loved the holiday season, it always makes me extra happy 😊. So in that spirit, if there are situations you don't like about it, know that you have a choice when it comes to making decisions or changing your mindset in situations that you have no control over. Find the solution that makes you happier👍 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #reflect #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #socialanxiety #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness #youarenotalone #keepgoing
Could you be our next Helpline Officer? Here is a change to make a difference in young peoples' lives. Check out the role description. Link in bio.
I can only speak for the UK as this is where I live. I see many of us trying to affect change with the services, I dont really see many NHS Professionals speaking up about lack of beds, medication and Staff etc? Surely if we stood together side by side people and staff, we might do something? #mentalhealth #mentalhealthaware #mentalhealthmatterstoo #mentalhealthcrisis #mentalhealththerapy #mentalhealthfighter #mentalhealthsystem #mentalhealthbloggeruk #mentalhealthworker #mentalhealthworks #mentalhealthday2017 #mentalhealthbujo #MentalHealthandInvisibleIllnessResources #mentalhealthawarenessweek2016 #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthhistory #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthtreatment
Believe it or not, these daily thoughts at work can accumulate and increase stress levels. If you make the change, what's the worst that could happen? Is it worth continuing this way or would change be better in the long run? Take some time to reflect on your day. You have the power to lead the change, you have always had the power, now it's time to embrace it 🙌💕 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #reflect #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #socialanxiety #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness #youarenotalone #keepgoing
Amidst the chaos I have felt recently, I found 10 mins of clarity and understanding to write this is in last night... #healing #reflection #selfcare #mentalhealthwork #thelonghaul #animalmedicinecards #medicinewheel #animalguides
I think that being authentic means that we take responsibility for what we have done in our lives. I actually do not see that many people on here take responsibility for some of the things that they do and that is a shame. I do not need to work on the good I do, I always wanted to work on the bad behaviour that I learned from being in an abusive situation as a child. Although it creates a set of beliefs that are probably correct when you are surviving as a child, they have not really worked for me as an adult and I never had the handbook "how to survive being abused as a child" As I started to have the right people around me and not controlling ones, I was able to see and change those life time behaviours and become a better person. I have done wrong, I have hurt people, and I take responsibility for that, no matter how much they hurt me. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthaware #mentalhealthmatterstoo #mentalhealthcrisis #mentalhealththerapy #mentalhealthfighter #mentalhealthsystem #mentalhealthbloggeruk #mentalhealthworker #mentalhealthworks #mentalhealthday2017 #mentalhealthbujo #MentalHealthandInvisibleIllnessResources #mentalhealthawarenessweek2016 #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthhistory #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthtreatment
"One taught me love⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One taught me patience⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And one taught me pain⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, I'm so amazing⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've loved and I've lost⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But that's not what I see⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, look what I got⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Look what you taught me" - @arianagrande ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This time of year can be difficult for some but remember to focus on what you've gained instead of what you've lost. And remember you don't have to do it alone, it's okay to ask for help.
Goodbye my Friend ........ Its been emotional and painful. In the past, I did not give medication a chance and I even shamed others for taking it. My Mindset changed as the people changed around me and I started to take Paroxetene in January 2018. Alas, my body was in pain I have never had before and only since I came out of withdrawal have I now noticed how much pain I was in. I had my first almost pain free run last night, energy has returned, pain has gone down and mood up and sleep a bit better. Strange to think that those above were some of the reasons why I started that medication. Hey, these things happen, things do not work, we try and we move on. Its goodbye and a hello to another medication to try #mentalhealth #mentalhealthaware #mentalhealthmatterstoo #mentalhealthcrisis #mentalhealththerapy #mentalhealthfighter #mentalhealthsystem #mentalhealthbloggeruk #mentalhealthworker #mentalhealthworks #mentalhealthday2017 #mentalhealthbujo #MentalHealthandInvisibleIllnessResources #mentalhealthawarenessweek2016 #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthhistory #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthtreatment
That instant when there is too much on your plate and you are close to snapping, crying, giving up. Recognize that instant, that's the moment when you can take all that anger and pain to fight for yourself. Whether that means walking away or prioritizing tasks or saying no is up to you. Fight for yourself, you are the only one who truly knows when you need to🙌💖 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #reflect #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #socialanxiety #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness #youarenotalone #keepgoing

Bad moments in life are 'moments'. Even though we can't control the surroundings at times, we have the power to control our mindset so that we are handling that one rough moment instead of letting our mind overwhelm and paralyze us with all the other problems in our lives. One at a time. Repeat, this is a rough 'moment' and I have the power to make it over this hill 💙💪 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #reflect #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #socialanxiety #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness #youarenotalone #keepgoing
Your issue is “bad enough” to warrant reaching out for help. Your feelings matter and are valid. You are worthy and deserving of help and support. You are not broken or defective, we are not taught how to cope with challenges in healthy ways, deal with our emotions or communicate effectively (although we should be, hint hint school systems). Reaching out is a sign of strength and courage. Making yourself vulnerable and being honest is a hugely brave thing to do. It aint weak to speak!

By now, I'm sure you've thought about your to-do list for today, I know I have🙈. Okay, now it's time to stop thinking about that list and start focusing on one thing at a time. Sometimes, thinking about that long list can cause anxiety. I have faith in you, you'll get there. And hey, if something doesn't get done today, then it will get done tomorrow 🤷‍♀️🙂💙 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #reflect #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #socialanxiety #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness #youarenotalone #keepgoing #kindness
We all have a story, only we really know the details of every struggle in our lives. So when people tell us that everything will be okay, it doesn't resonate with us because they don't really know what we are going through. But you do, you know everything you have overcome and how much strength it required. So today, please say this to yourself, 'I have come this far, I can't stop now, I won't stop now'. No matter what you want to accomplish, keep going, a little every day goes a long way 💙 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #reflect #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #socialanxiety #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness #youarenotalone #keepgoing
It hurts, there is no other way to put it. This also used to make me angry until I realized that there are always going to be people who don't truly understand us🤷‍♀️. But there are people who will and they are the ones we should be pouring our hearts out to. We all need the kind of support that fuels us.

I've noticed that if I vent enough, I'll eventually become tired of venting and find a solution to my problem😏. And then, there are get togethers where the conversation revolves around judging other peoples' lives and decisions even though their decisions have no impact on our lives😞. Even though gossip may make us feel better about our lives, the high is temporary. Let's shift the focus from judging others to reflecting on ourselves and work towards that long-term high😎💕. #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #gossip #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #reflect #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #socialanxiety #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #journeytowellness #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness
Life can completely change just by our thoughts...always remember that✨
Left pic: That was yesterday. I've been working 14 hour days for the past 2 weeks. I tried to smile but I was so exhausted. Truth: For the first time in my life, I feel content and amazing to be able to pursue my passion while also working my day job with coworkers who inspire me. Right pic: I look extremely happy but my anxiety was at its worst. I felt stuck, judged, unhappy and ready to snap. So, the next time you look at your past pics, look beyond the image and remember how you felt emotionally. You might see a different story, you may even realize how far you've come😁💕. #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #memories #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #photographs #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #journeytowellness #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness
There is that saying, 'step out of your comfort zone'. But sometimes, when our colleagues try to step out of their comfort zones, there is a lot of judgement and finger pointing waiting for them. Let's cheer others on and be there to support them when they are struggling. It takes a lot of strength to try something different. Besides, if we judge others less, we'll judge ourselves less too, it's a win-win situation💕. P.S. Shoutout to @helenarious_blog , I posted a pic in the same outfit I've posted once before, thanks for inspiring! 🤗 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #strength #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #workplacewellness #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #journeytowellness #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness
It takes all our energy to stay sane at the workplace sometimes. There is no doubt that positivity is important, but to get there, to get to that stage where we can be productive, takes an immense amount of effort sometimes😐💪. Let's together be the people who reach out to our coworkers and try to understand what they are really going through and then, lend a hand or ear to their struggles💙. P.S.

Ok, disclaimer, I know that our work image can't always be the same as everywhere else image. But at the same time, if we tried to listen to everyone's feedback, we wouldn't know what to be😓. I have been called 'quiet' and 'chatty' the same day, by 2 different people😏. So, find your balance, be whatever works for you and makes you happy. Because at the end of the day, that's what really matters and you really can't please everyone, can you? 🤔💕 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #strength #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #positivevibrations #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #journeytowellness #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness
We try to be friends with people that we don't really get along with on a deeper level and then, we get hurt when those people don't understand us. We are constantly putting extra pressure on ourselves to put on a front and fit into this mold. Let me just say, you are not weird and you are not alone. Always, always be true to yourself and you'll know who your crowd is in no time💕 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #betruetoyou #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #positivevibrations #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #journeytowellness #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness
There are times when I have made plans with people that I haven't seen for a long time, all the while being tired, grumpy and really not wanting to be there😳. Now, I realize that I wasn't being fair to them or to myself. They felt guilty for putting me in that position and I felt like someone was forcing me to be there😑. Reality of the situation? No one was forcing me. Plus, it feels much nicer to be fully present and have good memories to look back to🤔. #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #strength #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #positivevibrations #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #anxietywarrior #journeytowellness #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness
Have you had unhelpful language regarding Mental health from your Doctor? I admit that I am a person who in the past has sat back and moaned about issues without taking action. The more that people or someone speaks up about issues, the more it will become apparent that there is an issue. The last time that I saw a locum Doctor, he made comments that I believe are invalidating and unhelpful for anyone that has a Mental Health issue or issues. I have put it off for 20 days and this morning I wrote 1700 words to the Senior Partner to suggest that it was wrong and that the culture is required to change. I rarely go to see them because of this exact thing and I will not to have it. I am like a bee's nests, poke me enough and I will do something! #mentalhealth #mentalhealthcrisis #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthuk #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthisthebesthealth #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealththerapist #mentalhealthishealthtoo #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthtreatment #mentalhealthatwork #MentalHealthy #mentalhealthwoman #mentalhealthworker #mentalhealthinpatient #mentalhealthwellbeing
I love routines but they can also put us in boxes, to the point that we feel guilty for doing something out of the ordinary on weekdays😳. It's okay to sway from your routine sometime. We are constantly trying to control our mind, let's try listening to our heart and body sometimes🤗💕. #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #strength #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #positivevibrations #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #work #journeytowellness #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness
I see and hear so many people who blame themselves and beat themselves up for having a Mental Illness or condition. I know this, I have done it and sometimes I still do it, I mean it is so easy because many of us feel inadequate or different. Whilst I believe that we should not utilise our bad behaviour and blame having a illness, suggesting that gettiing an illness is our fault for me is wrong. Taking partial responsibility is awesome, taking full responsibility is not. Many of us including me have been blamed by Ex Partners for issues because we have a Mental Health condition and I do not believe this to be true, we all have flaws and issues and for me it is a joint responsibility. We owe it to ourselves to be kind to us as well. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthcrisis #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthuk #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthisthebesthealth #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealththerapist #mentalhealthishealthtoo #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthtreatment #mentalhealthatwork #MentalHealthy #mentalhealthwoman #mentalhealthworker #mentalhealthinpatient #mentalhealthwellbeing
I empathise as much as possible that some people are in difficult places and that creates difficult behaviour. I know this as I used to be the one that wanted to reply to every post that I believed was in some way wrong or did not fit with my version of the world. I am here to share my experiences and my experiences and what I share are my own and therefore correct. Some of my experiences may help others or help them to identify things about themselves, the majority or the reason that I do this is for myself. I do not mind a discussion about things, however I am not here to have endless debate about the rights or wrongs of a Mental Illness as we are all right and wrong at the same time in our beliefs.

We work so hard, killing ourselves and end up resenting people when they don't understand how much we do. In the end, we are hurting ourselves even more. Ask yourself this question, 'Why are you going the extra mile, why do you do all that you do?' If everything you do is making you happy, key to your survival or getting you closer to your goal, then maybe it's worth the effort👍. If not, then maybe it's time to reflect further 🤔 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthawareness #strength #mentalhealthsupport #workanxiety #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #positivevibrations #positivemindset #positivemind #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthjourney #workstress #mentalhealthmatters #work #journeytowellness #anxietyawareness #anxietysupport #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney #inspiredaily #raisingawareness
A year ago, I ran my 1st half marathon and I was so ashamed of my 2:30 finish time. I shrugged off every 'congrats' because I didn't think my time was 'good enough'. Looking back now, I am proud of running that 21K. In life, we are so quick to crush our efforts. Yes, there is room for improvement but please take the time to applaud and compliment yourself, you deserve it! 💕 Link to full blog post in bio✨ #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthatworkplace #happysaturday #loveyourself #mentalhealthovereverything #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #spreadkindness #mentalhealthadvocate #positivevibrations #positivemindset #positivemind #positiveattitude #compliments #mentalhealthmatters #halfmarathon #halfmarathoner #journeytowellness #workanxiety #workstress #work #workplacewellbeing #strength #growthmindset #trustyourjourney
Remember when you first started your job? How happy were you? You accomplished a goal, you probably even celebrated🎉. And now, day after day, you get it together and get yourself out that door. Something changed. Your goals, your motivation, your desires? When our actions don't align with our changes, that's when we start feeling intense pain. I know how hard it is to focus on positive thoughts. But only you have the power to climb out of these weeds💪. What's your motivation at this point in your life? What do you want in your life? Reflect and reach for the sun, one step at a time. You got this!💕 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthatworkplace #anxiety #happywednesday #happyhumpday #loveyourself #mentalhealthovereverything #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #spreadkindness #mentalhealthadvocate #positivevibrations #positivemindset #positivemind #positiveattitude #mentalhealthmatters #journeytowellness #workanxiety #workstress #work #workplacewellbeing #strength #growthmindset #trustyourjourney
Just like the weather, our moods don't stay the same. We have learned to prepare ourselves for weather changes. But when it comes to our mind, we keep pushing ourselves even though our brains are telling us to take a break. Maybe it's time to slow down on the low days, do the absolute important things and push everything else to another day. Let's learn to be kind to our minds💙 #mindfulness #mindfulandstronger #dailymotivation #dailyhustle #workgoals #strongertogether #mentalhealthtoronto #mentalhealthatworkplace #anxiety #happywednesday #happyhumpday #loveyourself #mentalhealthovereverything #mentalhealthwork #mentalhealthblogger #spreadkindness #mentalhealthadvocate #positivevibrations #positivemindset #positivemind #positiveattitude #mentalhealthmatters #journeytowellness #workanxiety #quotestagram #workstress #work #workplacewellbeing #growthmindset #trustyourjourney
How does your work environment effect your productivity? These past few weeks we have been designing our offices and working on the best layouts to provide a safe, comfortable, and nurturing space for our clients. Work is where we spend a great deal of our time and our work space reflects more than we know. If we choose to have an organized, maintained, and clean office then our minds will work in tangent with those qualities. On the other hand, if things are disheveled, scattered, and bleak then we will have difficulty feeling energized, in control, and motivated to do our work. Give yourself the tools for success and know that our environments impact how we feel and what we choose to think about. #workpositive #knowyourenvironment #beproductive #worksmart #healthyenvironment #workspacegoals #workwell #loveyourworkspace #counselingoffice #mentalhealthwork
We say this often, don't we?😳 'I don't care if I don't get that job, I didn't want it anyways', 'I don't care about that performance review, I did the best I could'. And at times, it may be true but if we are saying it often, we are constantly telling our feelings to take a hike without giving ourselves a chance to reflect😔. By asking the question, we open the doors to having a deeper conversation with ourselves😍. When we are honest with ourselves, only then we are able to truly move forward👉.

We all raise awareness of #MentalHealth and #MentalIllness in different ways Some of us write blogs and do it on Social Media, some of us speak at Schools and Businesses, some of us Fundraise and some of us do silly things like run Marathons. What ever thing you do, please do not put down that effort or listen to others that might suggest that it is wrong. We all contribute in a small way and the small adds up to BIG I think we could be encouraging these people NOT shaming them #mentalhealth #mentalhealthtools #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthawreness #mentalhealthandfaith #mentalhealthreform #mentalhealthawarenessday #mentalhealthnz #mentalhealthfighter #mentalhealthcrisis #mentalhealthcat #mentalhealthwarriors #mentalhealthovereverydamnthing #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthintheworkplace #mentalhealthformoms #mentalhealthwork
