I talk about health a lot, but when I mention being healthy, I mean more than just the physical body.
Health is more than how you look and feel physically.
Health is about your mind, body, and spirit.
And some days, not all of those things are in line.
And that’s okay.
The thing with depression/ mental illness is, it doesn’t ask you “is now a good time?” Do you want to spend tomorrow or Friday crying in bed?
Are you ready to spend today fake smiling?
*lights, camera, action*
You go and you keep going and you keep going and going.
Mental health is a bit of a taboo because it is misunderstood.
People who don’t understand will say, snap out of it or cheer up.
Not because they don’t care, but only because they do not understand.
And that’s okay.
Know that if you’re struggling out there- I understand you and my heart is with you.
Take care of your mental health in order to continue taking care of your physical health.
It may not be easy and it may take time, but things will get better.
Just know that you are understand by some of us.
You’re not crazy.
You’re not alone.
You are needed and loved.
When I find myself falling into the darkness I talk about it to people who understand. I get out in nature. I sleep. I drink water and I start listing all the beautiful things in my life I have. I draw. I sing. I write about it.
It’s not a remedy that may work for you, but it’s how I cope.
Finding a coping method is just as important as making a plan for the Gym. It’s essential to being successful in this. And you can be successful. You can. You can. You can.
That’s my “health” tip for the day, and I hope those of you who need it take it into consideration and know I love you dearly.
And those of you who do understand, thank you for understanding.❤️
