This can be in any situation you find yourself in, from an upcoming driving test, to an imminent job interview to suffering…

Dating With Anxiety – My Tips

New blog – today readers I thought I’d write about a subject that a few people have asked me about which is the subject of dating with anxiety!

Why I Think Mental Health Awareness Week Sucks

Why I Think Mental Health Awareness Week Sucks

New blog – Today I thought I’d write about mental health awareness week and more specifically why I think it creates, not solves, problems for charities and mental health awareness. It’s quite topical as here in the UK we’re currently underway with mental health awareness week! As usual whenever there’s a charity awareness¬†event taking place people in work are busy organising bake sales and various other good deeds to organise money for a mental health charity. Which is really admirable…

If you’d like to look at her site (which I can highly recommend) you can find it by clicking here. Writing for Charlotte made me really think about…

The benefits of exercise

The benefits of exercise

New blog – for today’s blog I thought I’d write about exercise. For many years I’ve hard people talk about how great exercise is but I’ve never really understood this before. I’ve joined a few gyms in my time but never really seen it through. Recently though I decided to give joining the gym another go and see what all the fuss is about. And I have to say since signing up for my local branch of Pure gym I…

The benefits of anti-depressants

The benefits of anti-depressants

New blog – For today’s post I thought I’d talk about how anti-depressants can really help if, like myself, you suffer from anxiety and/or depression. If you suffer from either or both of these conditions I’m a great believer in taking anti-depressants. I take 100ml of sertraline myself every day and it’s brilliant! But for many months I resisted taking them because of the stigma around mental health and taking pills. This was a massive mistake and I will blog…

Maintaining or improving your mental health

Maintaining or improving your mental health

Mental health is critical to living a happy life and yet many people ignore this simple fact. They assume that mental health problems are something that affect other people but with an average 1 in 4 adults suffering from mental health problems during the course of their life it’s fair to say that whether you suffer with mental health issues or not maintaining your mental health is critical! Below I’ve pulled together a few areas to concentrate on to help…
