Living authentically took me a long time to do. I didn’t know who I was so I’d imitate the people that I admired in an attempt to form some sort of an identity. I tried to make their passions and purpose my own - but it never quite fit. A few years ago, after a traumatic experience related to my mental illness, I started to let go of what others wanted me to be. I began exploring the things that brought me joy, ignited my curiosity, and the things that came organically to me. I stopped judging myself for who I truly was. Today, living authentically feels easy to me - like a river it flows to personal freedom - FREEDOM TO BE ME. 🙏🏼💕😊
Realizing that flashbacks could be emotional, and did not have to be disassociative in any other sense of the word, I started to better understand what was happening when I was triggered. That in turn, helped me to better manage my PTSD symptoms. Let me tell you more in this episode of the SwanWaters Healing Podcast: https://swanwaters.com/e31-emotional-flashbacks-in-ptsd/ (you can find it through the Linktree in the bio)⠀ ⠀ #ptsddogs #ptsdsupport #ptsd #mentalwellbeing #mentality #mentalstrength #mentalillness #mentalhealthday #childhoodtrauma #mentalhealthhelp #complexptsd #selfhelp #ptsdwarrior #ptsdrecovery #narcopath #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthmonday #mentalhealth #endthesilence #mentalbreakdown #mentalcoach #mentalhealthawarenessday #toxicrelationships #mentalwellness #traumahealing #ptsdservicedog #ptsdawarenessmonth #ptsdinspirational #narcissistfree #ptsdsucks

Love this!! Hopefully this offers some ideas for all you families out there! #familylife #selfcare #mentalwellness #tiptuesdays #therapistsofinstagram #therapy
Absolutely LOVE this!! It encapsulates in photo form, the concept of #mentalwealth beautifully! Focus only on the things that we can control and let go of the worry around everything else in life. In doing that, you can focus totally on changing the things within your control to serve you better because you sure as hell can’t change anything else! 🙌🏽 #mentalhealth #mentalwealth #mentalwealthacademy #mentalillness #mentalwellness #mentalhealthsupport #speakupspeakout #startbeinghonest
My name is Sean and I am proud to be autistic. I am sure that sounds weird to some people, especially those who believe that my life is supposed to be a tragedy. But here’s the thing. Autism is my brain wiring. I wouldn’t be ME if I had different brain wiring. And I really like who I am. I love my strong passion and compassion. It helps my creativity. It gives me a strong sense of right and wrong, which makes me good advocate for myself and others. I am living a full life! Yes, I absolutely DO have challenges. Yes, I am disabled. no, I do NOT need to be fixed. I love life as it is when other people don’t try to make me fit in. #actuallyautistic #autisticandproud #transandautistic #enjoyinglife #findingmyvoice #aspiezebra #vEDS #livinglife #mentalwellness #selfcare #lovinglife

Youth from the South Side Community Collaborative Teen Leadership Academy, a youth led initiative, and Franklin County Youth Council (FCYC) shared a panel on mental health from a youth perspective. Students led the panel and posed for a group picture with State Senator Herschel Craig. Great job promoting mental wellness and helping to Shine a Light on the South Side!
“Forgive yourself for knowing better at the time what you know now. ——– One of the best way we can help fight the stigma against mental illness is by educating ourselves, and in doing so we are putting ourselves in a position to become a more kind and compassionate version of ourselves. So I’m encouraging you to join me in learning a little more about PTSD this month. #ptsdawarenessmonth . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .📷 credit.Welby O’Brien . #ptsd #change #survivor #keepyourheadup #keepgoing #fighter #keepgrowing #recovery #depression #mentalillness #mentalhealth #endthestigma #wellness #meditation #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #hope #wisdom #selfdevelopement #peace #spiritual #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthadvocate #minoritymentalhealth #minoritymentalhealthawareness #haitianmentalhealth #haitiancommunity #mentalwellness ##haitiansthrive
Why get paid for a job you don't enjoy when you can get paid for a job you love? . When I first learned about this business like 5 years ago I had zero interest in it. Then last February I was approached with an opportunity to pursue it and I went with my gut instinct and grabbed it 🌠 It has been a huge eye opening experience and even though I'm only about 4 months in, I can't believe how much I've learned and how much more passionate about it I've become . The part I love the most? My job is to literally workout, eat healthy food, and share my journey with everyone I meet. My job is to help others on their fitness and wellness journey and encourage them to build healthy habits for LIFE, not just for 30 days or until the subscription runs out 🌲 I'm encouraged to build a team of amazing people who genuinely CARE about their health and are ready to COMMIT to a lifestyle of health and happiness. I'm inspired too find ladies who are just like me to share this journey with and help them build a business that they can use to reach their goals too . Oh, and I can do ALL of this while also working a full time job AND pursue my yoga teaching passions. I am 100% in control of my business and how much I put into it ☀ I'm holding an info session this weekend with some bomb ass ladies talking about our businesses and why we friggen love it . If you are as obsessed with health and fitness as I am and want a job where you help other people on their health journeys, comment below or sent me a DM and I'd love to chat with you about it 💕 Stop dreaming about your future and start living it . #lovethelifeyoulive #healthyforlife #teamopenyourheart #wildheart #bossbabes #findyourtribe

Fermented foods! I’ve always loved to cook but fermenting is totally different. It’s more of a watch & wait game, keeping an eye on those bubbles being made in my sauerkraut or kefir. The end results are so worth it, full of probiotics that keep your gut & mind healthy. . #fermented #fermentedfoods #probiotics #prebiotics #gutdiversity #mentalwellness #mentalwellnessmovement #healthygut #leakygut #guthealth #gutbrainaxis #stressresilience #anxiety #weightloss #mentalhealth #immunesupport #microbiome #goodbacteria #health #guthealthmatters #inflammation #guthealing #healyourgut #mindbody #gutbrainconnection #healyourself #wellness #emotionalwellness #amareglobal
Follow me @nourish.sweat.rekindle MENTAL WELLNESS WEEK Day #1 . . STRESS!!! . . I don't know many people out there who don't have to deal with stress on a daily basis. While most of the stressors are the INEVITABLE-IMPORTANT ones, there are others that are just the small PETTY-UNIMPORTANT ones. But since we are so busy taking all this stress, we don't really get a chance to identify the real cause of all this chaos in our lives. So I'd say that to DE-STRESS ourselves, we first need to IDENTIFY the causes of stress. That's what I want you guys to do today. . . STEP 1: IDENTIFY THE STRESSORS - Jot down the top 10 things that are bothering you and are causing stress in your life right now. - Put these stressors in two categories: a) Important Inevitable Stressors b) Unimportant Petty Stressors . . I'll talk to you guys about further dealing with stress tomorrow... . . Talk to you all soon..

Our earthly tethers keep us humble. What helps you to stay grounded?
The kids are ALWAYS touching me😜 I’m just trying to fill out new patient paperwork for a chiropractor visit and I’m over here being a jungle gym like normal! Tasks always take longer than expected with these kids! 😉 Moms. We love our kids dearly, we would do anything for them, and sometimes we feel we need a break. But the minute they are out of our sight or asleep we miss them. Mommin is HARD. Mom guilt is hard. I know many of us feel it in some form but it doesn’t make it any easier. Remember. ✨You are qualified. ✨You are ENOUGH. ✨YOU are more than capable. ✨Your kids are happy. Those feelings your having are normal. It’s how we deal with them that matter. 💕
