Mental illness. It is not a topic we like to talk about, but we should.It is silly not to. Nearly 1 in 5 Americans suffers with one, yet we don’t talk about it. Why? No one ever got better by pretending something wasn’t there. I know first hand what it feels like to be trapped under the boulder of clinical depression. I barely made it out of that hopeless state alive. I know the rock of anxiety well, we are on a first name basis. I have learned to talk about it. That is how I stand on top of this rock instead of under it. For me, I need to feed my body healthy non-processed food. That isn’t always what I am craving, but it is what I need. I need to be out in nature daily. I require daily exercise to stay in balance and I need sleep. I also meditate, that quiet still time keeps me grounded and life in perspective. It sounds simple, but those things changed my life dramatically. Besides that, I have two great support people so when that boulder starts creeping in I call then, I don’t wait until I am completely under it to start talking. That for me is a winning combination that keeps me dancing on top of the boulder these days.If you are struggling, reach out, there is an entire network of people trained to help you. Brighter days are within your reach, you just need to find what works for you!
Shine bright my friends, you are worth it!
