#MentalHealthMonday⁣⁠⁣⁠I know. It doesn’t sound like happiness and depression can co-exist. But after years of therapy and days upon days of trial and error, I’ve learned that they really can. The secret? A lot of work.⁣⁠⁣⁠While choosing to see beauty every day really helps me with my depression, there are also several other things I have to consistently do to feel good.⁣⁠⁣⁠Do I slip up? Absolutely. And when I do, I can definitely feel it in my mood. I have to make a conscious effort throughout each day to make everything happen.⁣⁠⁣⁠I detail it all in my blog post – “How to be happy living with depression.” Click on the link in my bio to read it.⁣⁠⁣⁠And while you're there, also click on the "Mental Health America" button to find out how to get started with mental health help from my partner, @mentalhealthamerica. ⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠#ichoosebeauty #retrainyourbrain #trainyourbrain #braintraining #seethegood #seethebeauty #findthegood #findthelight #findthebeauty #findthejoy⁣⁠#findyourhappiness #findhappiness #createyourownhappiness #happinesstherapy #innerhappiness #happinesswithin #happinessisfree #happinessmatters⁣⁠#mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthisreal #mentaltraining #mentalfitness⁣⁠ #wordsofencouragement #inspirationalmessage

#MentalHealthMonday ⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠Let's talk about self care. You may have noticed, I didn't do my usual Monday post last week. Truth is, I didn't have the energy to eke it out.⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠I've been exhausted over the past few months as my body continues to heal from my upper cervical misalignment. It's forcing me to take time off, even as I'm still really struggling with feeling like I'm so behind on everything. BUT here's the thing. Every time I push myself to get things done, I overdo it and I end up paying for it with days in bed. ⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠So learn from my mistakes, you guys. ⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠Self care is so important. And it's important to do it consistently, not just when your body is screaming at you, like I've been doing. You've got to learn to listen when it's whispering. ⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠Like REALLY LISTEN to your body, be kind to yourself, and find that balance. Take a nap, workout, do nothing. Whatever you need.⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠Because self care is non-negotiable. It's not a luxury. It's absolutely necessary, and something we all must do for our health. ⁣⁠⁣⁠Clearly, I needed this reminder too!⁣ 😬⁠⁣⁣⁠If you need other ideas on how to stay mentally healthy, my partner @mentalhealthamerica can help. Just click on the link in my bio and go to the Mental Health America button.⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠⁣⁣⁠#ichoosebeauty #chronicillnesslife #chronicillnessfighter #chronicpainwarrior #chronicpainsucks #chronicpainawareness #chronicpainlife #menieresdisease #recoveryjourney #injuryrecovery #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthcare #mentalhealthissues #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealthwarriors #mentalwellness #mentalstrength #mentaltraining #mentalfitness⁣⁠ #wordsofencouragement #inspirationalmessage #inspirationalthoughts
