winter blues…

I love winter but man those days on end that we never see the sunshine just get to me. It’s hard enough when your a depressive person and no sunshine really is a sad thing. But trust me overall I enjoy the winter months. I just don’t like driving in snow and ice.

Please winter bring back my sunshine.

In the past I have used a sunshine light to help me but I currently don’t have one. I need to get one again they are very helpful to sit in front of for a hour or so each day of the winter months.

How do you handle the long dark winter days? Comment please let me know.

mental health and moving forward…

Take a left turn for the better. Focus on what is really bothering you/me right now. What’s absolutely on my mind? My mental health. And ways I can improve it. Step one, get more help. Seek professional help with medication and therapy. Find out what is really going on. Why am I having so many breakthrough symptoms lately. Why 80% of the time do I feel bad? There are only a few days a month that feel good/great. The rest, not so much. But I am committed to moving forward, not backwards, so it’s time for some additional help.

I am committed to my mental health. I am committed to doing all I can to improve it. I want to work with my doctor(s) to do all I can. Make a plan and work that plan. Ideas below…

  • Medication
  • Therapy
  • Sleep
  • Food
  • Exercise
  • Stress relief
  • Self-care
  • Meditation
  • Prayer
  • Journaling
  • Reading
  • Creativity
  • Create something

What are some things your doing now to improve your mental health today? Join me here on my journey to mental health wellness.

Champagne colored? from Overstock I am moving in a few months to a new home. I have a large office to fill. I’d really like some bookcase shelves to organize and display some things. Which one do you like best, gold or grey or metal or wood?

Inkwell Press A5 2017 Inserts…

This year I choose the A5 inserts from Inkwell Press. They fit great in my blue domino Filofax.

I actually use these inserts to track activities I do each day, kinda of like a diary. I love the heavyweight paper, gold monthly tabs, and overall wonderful quality of this planner.
