Have you ever stopped and thought about how you speak to YOURSELF? We pay attention to how we speak to others and we teach our children to be respectful and kind to others- so why are we not always kind to ourselves? How you speak to yourself truly matters. Speaking positively to yourself creates self-confidence and and overall mental health. And make it habit! I promise, it will make you feel better! So, I encourage you to say something kind about yourself and leave it in a comment below. Get it out there and share it with the world! 💓💓 #begoodtoyouclubpeptalks . . #begoodtoyouclub #selfcareisforeveryone #bekindtoyourself #kindnessmatters #thewayyouspeaktoyourselfmatters #selflove #selflovematters #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthmatters #youareenough #loveyourself #handlettering #lettering #handtype #freelancingfemales #britandco #mentalhealth #selfcompassion #handdrawntype #illustrationartist #tampa #tampaartist #flashesofdelight #dailytype #goodtype

So if you’ve been following my journey you’ll know, I’m basically a walking death bed... I’ve got mental health issues ADHD-BIPOLAR-EUPD but, recently I’ve been diagnosed with a rare disease following numerous of hospital visits and that I have a small tumor on the back of my brain too. Since this and before, i suffer my own shit daily, weekly and monthly mentally and physically but, I’ve been blacking out and having dizziness (star gazing just seeing pure black and ringing in my ears), so now I’m on a heart monitor to measure how my heart keeps stopping and starting, and then following my blood pressure. It’s a constant daily battle I live with, scared to shower alone- incase I drop in there (which I already have), shopping trips, basically anything. So, due to my illness my blood pressure drops and remains super low always, anyway, so it’s a never ending game. I must keep this on now for some days and hopefully we can figure out what’s next, and if not, I must try and keep hopeful that we will figure it out eventually #keepfighting #talktococo #heartmonitor #healthiswealth
I’ve been feeling a bit off kilter the past few days. There’s no particular reason as to why, but I wanted to use that feeling though to create something positive to share with others. * Feeling not quite right is something I grew quite used to. Ever since I started medication for anxiety however, my sense of self has massively improved. It’s been quite a while since I’ve felt this though and I feel a bit unsure on what to do about it. * I think 90% of it comes from feeling tired and I probably just need a solid 8 hours sleep and I’ll be back where I’m usually at. As well as that however, I’m going to adopt the above strategies too. * I’ve done my gentle exercise for the day, and I’m about to write about it before I go buy some chocolate. * If you’re feeling a bit off balance I hope this helps and you can use something from it, but also just remember it’s OK to have days like this and that you’re not alone.
➡️➡️When I write music, songs usually start off as poems, fantasy, or experience. So, given the poem I wrote yesterday, “Rhythm in my Crown,” I decided to add some melody to it. Rhythm in My Crown My strands are harmonious, Creating a crescendo of curls. Fun and free, they skat. Tangled in timpani, and tabla drums A fugue with every follicle, My strands are harmonious. Roots of reggae and ska, Dancing towards the light of the sun And shouting, “AFRICA!” -@husniyahsaeed #model #singer #actress #poet #mentalhealthadvocate #naturalhair #curls #music #poetry #poem #music #poemoftheday #curlyhair #afropuff #melanated #melaninmagic #melaninpoppin #condoliving #singersofinstagram

Have you guys heard of 'grounding' (also referred to as 'earthing')? 👣 The theory is that taking off your shoes and making direct contact with the earth assists in releasing accumulated free radicals in our bodies by connecting with the earth's negative ions. 🌎 Research is showing this can result in many benefits - one being reduced anxiety or depression! I started doing it by accident (simply because I like going barefoot in my backyard) and put together one day that I had been feeling more relaxed and less anxious! 🍃 May not be definitive proof, but why not give it a go? Have you done it? . . Here is a simple guide to check out the what/why/hows of grounding: https://www.wellandgood.com/good-advice/what-is-grounding-kimberly-snyder/
🧠 You might have your mother’s eyes, but are you aware that you might also re-live your father’s depression? Or embody your mother's anxiety? • • • What is intergenerational trauma? Picture this: you are experiencing trauma symptoms but can’t explain why. You may suffer from unexplained anxieties, depressions or obsessive thoughts that seem to make no sense. What if these psychological symptoms are your unconscious inheritance? Research shows that traumas experienced by previous generations can be biologically inherited, especially when that trauma is not resolved/processed within the family. Healing from trauma requires a witness, a discussion, a working though, a validation of one’s pain. When families are unwilling to sit with this pain, it gets transmitted to future generations. In order to process it, you have to connect the issue to the root of the problem (usually a secret), you have to talk about it, you have to sit with the pain that everyone before you tried to avoid, but in doing so you leave it behind. Check out @markwolynn book ‘It Didn’t Start With You’ for more insight. • • • #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #inspirational #quote #quotes #stephiwagner #empowerment #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalillnessawareness #therapist #therapy #psychologist #psychology #bosslady #girlboss #awareness #health #psychotherapy #psychoanalysis #choosehappiness #criticaltherapycenter
#SDCC starts tomorrow. It's a wonderful festival of joy, but like in any other massive event, people can get lost, distressed, and be put in vulnerable situations. Have a great time but watch the backs of your fellow humans, especially youth. If you see something, say something! Offer help if you can, or if you can't find a crew member and inform them! . #ELEMUSA #ELEM #youthindistress #youthinneed #nonprofitorganization #nonprofits #nonprofitlife #nonprofitorganisation #nonprofitwork #nonprofitsofinstagram #nonprofitfoundation #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthcounseling #mentalhealthissues #fightpoverty #endchildpoverty
Your life is as good as your mindset🙌🏻 Do you have a favourite quote angels?🌸
Everyday is another day to work on yourself. Everyday is another day to learn. Everyday is another day to grow. These things are hard. People try to make it shiny, it's not. It's hard, messy, confusing and can hurt. The thing you need to try and do is continue to work on yourself. Whatever that looks like to you. Whether it's changing one thought, one action or one response, it's all work. Keep at the grind. It's your life, try to not let others run (or ruin) it.

It's funny how we allow little things to unsettle us and make us further loss our self-worth. . . My grandma died at the age of 82 without a singular grey hair. You can imagine how embarrassing it was to me to grow grey hair at 37. . . In a society where we are expected to look 10 years younger than our age, it made me feel people would see me older than my actual age. . . But you know what? I've come to realize that some of the things we see as defects actually make us beautiful in a unique way. . . I am a woman on a mission. No other woman is permitted to suffer inferiority complex and low self-esteem as I did. Follow me if you are struggling with this beast and let me help you overcome.
You have to #challenge yourself to #change yourself 💪 like if you agree 💚 #wednesdaywisdom #growth
Self care is actually caring for everyone you love.
Doing a face mask is also self care but it only makes you feel better for a certain amount of time. Self care in your lifestyle can actually help bring about changes in your mental health, hopefully and make you feel better about things! Do whatever works for you.💓 🎨: @crazyheadcomics • • • • #anxiety #depression #anxietyawareness #depressionawareness #anxietyanddepression #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #mentalhealth #loveyourself #selflove #selfacceptance #itsokaynottobeokay #selfcare #depressionart #bipolardisorder #ptsd #recoveryjourney #follow #mentalhealthart #mentalhealthwellness #bodypositivity #supportanxiety #youareloved #mentalhealthadvocate #youareenough #mentalillness #bodylove #anxietyart #feelings #bpd #itgetsbetter
