  • 1 👀 or 2 🐰? Today is #timetotalk day and I just wanna say no matter what it is, whether it’s finding a love of fashion or enjoying a cup of coffee please find something that gives you passion and joy. One of the biggest acts of self care you can do is allow yourself to find something big or small to pour your heart and soul into. 5 years ago I was about to be admitted into hospital, my depression was horrific and I didn’t have anything in my life that I thought was worth living for. Now flash forward to where I have found a passion for fashion and style and I am finally planning for my future. It’s a long hard road the road to recovery but if you’re reading this and thinking you have no chance of happiness or to recover I promise you do, is it easy? NO. But the battle ahead is worth it when you come out on the other side. 💖

  • We have to talk.💭
.
I have been going through hell throughout my teenage years.
Suffering from mental and physical illnesses. Feeling completely lost. 
No desire to be alive.
I somehow managed to keep going and survive. 
To come out strong and rise again.🕊
.
I find beauty in the most simple things today...
I practice gratitude for the tiniest gestures of kindness, for flowers that start blooming, birds singing and the sun kissing my face.🌞
In the most simple things like a sweet scent, a warming cup of tea and a tight hug by a loved one. This is what I am living for. And I realized that I don’t need anything else in order to be happy and feel fulfilled. 
I am grateful to be able to reach so many people with my message and work with stuck females 1:1, watching their lives transform for the better.🌻
I love my job because I know what it feels like to have no friends to talk to.
I would sit with my mum in the kitchen every night, empty eyes filled with tears and tell her how much I hated myself and my life.
Fast forward 10 years and I am sitting in front of her, tears of gratitude and the biggest smile on my face because I have created a reality for myself that seemed so far away back when I was 13 years old, feeling confused and with no purpose, disconnected from who I truly was...👁
.
If you have something on your heart, don’t keep it to yourself. Mental health is a real deal and it‘s nothing to feel ashamed about. #talkitoutday #timetotalk

  • Reposting a couple of images today because it’s #timetotalkday ⁣
⁣
We all experience times when things are tough and living with chronic and/or mental illness the chances are it feels like there are more tough times than any other. Today is all about reaching out and connecting with each other to talk about how we’re feeling. We are so heavily connected in these times than any other and yet often we can feel so alone. We know this and that’s why we are here creating what we are and doing our best to grow and provide space for people to connect, share and feel less alone because the reality is you’re not alone in how you feel. Once we open up and get chatting it starts to reveal that so many of us can feel in the same boat it’s just we didn’t know. I appreciate face to face chats and socialising can be hard when you have chronic illness due to energy, I know I struggle but don’t forget thanks to the Internet we can reach out and have a conversations too. Whilst I love social media for connecting sometime my DM inbox can be overwhelming because I get all sorts of different messages it can be hard to see what’s what so wanted to give you a gentle reminder today we have our forum open anytime of the day or night to have a chat about anything. It’s there for you and maybe today reach out if you want to (link in bio) ⁣
I’ll be logging in later and having a catch up so come and introduce yourself and have a chat.⁣
⁣
Above all today we want to remind you that when you follow us you’re not just following a page on social media, you automatically become part of our village and we care about you and our community. We’re so grateful to have you here and never be afraid to talk about your feelings in the Village 💖

  • If you have PTSD, you may experience very strong feelings of anxiety, sadness, anger, guilt, or shame, to name just a few. When you feel several of these PTSD emotions in quick succession, it can be very hard to know what you're feeling at any given moment.
.
If it often happens that you don't know what you're feeling, you may be headed for problems such as:
.
Feeling out of control and anxious about what emotion's coming up next
.
Feeling unable to manage your emotions and stay in control
.
Choosing an unhealthy way to cope with your PTSD emotions, such as avoidance or self-medication with illegal drugs or alcohol
.
In extremely upsetting situations, some people may use dissociation ("blanking out" or feeling that your emotions are disconnected from you) to distance themselves from all aspects of an emotion.
.
Why It's Better to Know Exactly What You're Feeling: When you know exactly what you're feeling, you have the right information for figuring out how to make yourself feel better. You can choose the way to cope with your PTSD emotions that is most likely to be effective.
.
.
Remember - NEVER be ashamed for what you’ve gone through. 💯 You deserve piece and quiet in your head and you deserve to feel happy 🙏 These experiences will make you stronger one day and it’s okay to feel the feelings you do. Own them, work on them and love yourself always fam. It’s okay to need help and get counseling for situations that have happened to you - #timetotalk and work on ourselves. Know your loved and we’re not alone in this! 😭♥️

  • It’s #TimeToTalk Day: we all need to talk more. My ingredient to open up is ‘trust’. If you trust someone, you can let them in, unburden yourself of the weight on your shoulders, however insignificant or massive the issue might be. Don’t suffer in silence, talk today. ❤️ @mindcharity

  • Today’s Motivation 💪

We are so quick to judge and find faults in ourselves, we slowly loose what we love about ourselves. For some we stop finding the positives when we look in the mirror and all we find are negatives.

Work on being in love with the person in the Mirror, who has been through so much but is still standing. “It’s ok not to be ok “ “together we are stronger” 💜

SPACE TO BREATH -

Taking time out is so important for our mental health. It gives us time to live in the moment, to reflect, to feel balanced and get creative.
-

Mental health wasn’t anything I’d particularly considered before having my son 7 years ago and suffering from post natal depression.
-

I had no idea that this was something that could happen to just anybody. I thought it happened to people who were negative or unhappy...not people who enjoyed their life!!
-

Having a baby is life changing and nothing could of prepared me for the shift once he arrived.  Nothing could of prepared me for the labour, which totally left me traumatised.
-

When he arrived I felt overwhelmed. As time went on I felt I’d lost my identity, I struggled with the relentlessness of it all, the tiredness was all consuming and I felt isolated.
-

Luckily I identified quickly that things weren’t right and my health visitor and GP worked closely with me to help me feel well again. They encouraged me to talk to friends and family, to exercise, to get fresh air and to eat well.
-

A friend introduced me to yoga and meditation as a tool to help. I also started reading about diet and what foods were good for mental health. I talked openly about it and as a result have connected with some amazing women who had also suffered. This in itself made me feel less isolated and has resulted in making some amazing lifelong friends.
-

I keep a check on myself regularly. I now notice little changes and I understand when I need to stop and slow down. I have the tools to ensure that I stay balanced and healthy.  I pick up on negative thought patterns and switch them up immediately!
-

Working with my coach has helped me balance my thoughts, develop positive routines and feel the freedom that living in the moment brings. .

  • A big part of the positive effect choirs have on symptoms of PND is the community of other parents. Pram Chorus members who are first-time parents are supported by second-timers and parents of old preschoolers, who are able to offer advice, support and to signpost other support services when people need help. This invaluable support network was described by one of our participants as ‘a weekly lifeline’ - aptly summing up how just important these sessions can be! Add to that the therapeutic benefits of group singing and you have an amazing way of treating PND symptoms, which we’ve known for a while and which is now noted in new research.

  • What advise would you give your teenage self?
⠀⠀
•
⠀⠀
My advise would be to stop worrying and comparing yourself to others, you are actually ok 👍🏻.
⠀⠀
•
⠀⠀
Fear of failure can be a strong motivating force, but little is spoken about the fear of success. ⠀⠀
•
⠀⠀
In the past, I was reminded by people how I could learn from any mistakes made; whether it was in figure skating competitions, academic tests or in work settings. ⠀⠀
•
⠀⠀
However, no one ever spoke on how to handle success. ⠀⠀
•
⠀⠀
In high school, I vividly remember getting bright red avoiding to answer questions about test exam results that I’ve done well in. ⠀⠀
•
⠀⠀
I felt ashamed, even though the results were down to hard work. As a teenager I didn’t want to come across as boasting or sticking out in any way. It was uncool to do well, so I settled with B grades rather than striving for A’s. ⠀⠀
•
⠀⠀
Perhaps I was not prepared on how to handle success (even moderate ones). Doing well meant I had to live up to others and my own expectations to continually perform at that level. Settling at a slightly lower level came with the cost of decreasing my self esteem, as I knew I could do better. ⠀⠀
•
⠀⠀
This fear of success can be inhibiting, as we avoid risks and lower our standards in order to reach it.  It often has a knock on effect decreasing our self esteem. ⠀⠀
•
⠀⠀
When I’m working with clients on low self esteem issues, we aim to get to the root of the problem,  before strengthening and building up the belief in themselves. It’s so rewarding witnessing how decades of poor self esteem can be reversed through collaborative therapeutic work. •

The last several months, and especially the last few days, have been really hard for me. One might say I'm experiencing my quarter life crisis, both professionally and more recently, unfortunately, personally. I've been struggling with anxiety, and probably some depression, and it has me paying a lot more attention to how I calm myself down. I've been trying everything from bubble baths to massages to meditation, some with more success than others.
•
Millenials get touted as the self care generation, usually not in a positive way. But it's not because we're obsessed with pampering ourselves. We're also the anxiety generation, and the burnout generation, so without that self care we just don't make it. Finding what can truly bring you peace is so important. Equally important is being able to talk about the pain that peace is needed for. For me, I've found finding a quiet place and breathing in the crisp air, taking in the calm around me and wondering at it is the most relaxing thing I can do. •
To my amazing family and friends (and cat) who have done everything from check on me, force me out of bed, make sure I'm eating, and getting me out of my apartment to socialize the last few days, I can't thank you enough. I needed it, and I still will, and I know you got me.
•
To everyone, it's okay if you're having a hard time. Reach out to those around you. Talk about it. Indulge in all the self care you desire. And don't forget to look up in wonder. •

  • WHY YOU NEED A PROFESSIONAL COUNSELLOR 
Almost all of us experience periods of stress, sadness, grief and conflict at some point in our lives. So if you are going through such a period of life it can be hard to know if it’s time to seek professional help about the problem. 
Contrary to the popular belief, one doesn’t have to be “crazy,” desperate or on the brink of a meltdown to go for counselling. 
Perhaps you have been thinking about seeing a counselor for a while. There are days you feel really low and feel like you need to speak to someone as soon as possible. Then other days you feel better and the thought of ringing a counselor goes away. But the underlying causes that make you feel low are still there and you inevitably feel worse again in a few days time. 
It is normal to feel apprehensive about seeing a counselor for the first time. Also it can be hard to accept you might need help. Asking for help can make the problem seem more real: you can’t show that it’s all OK so easily. 
Sometimes the signs are visible but at other times, something may feel slightly off and you can’t figure out what it is. So you drag on, trying to maintain your busy life until you realize that life has become unmanageable.

    Contrary to the popular belief, one doesn’t have to be “crazy,” desperate or on the brink of a meltdown to go for counselling.
    Perhaps you have been thinking about seeing a counselor for a while. There are days you feel really low and feel like you need to speak to someone as soon as possible. Then other days you feel better and the thought of ringing a counselor goes away. But the underlying causes that make you feel low are still there and you inevitably feel worse again in a few days time.
    It is normal to feel apprehensive about seeing a counselor for the first time. Also it can be hard to accept you might need help. Asking for help can make the problem seem more real: you can’t show that it’s all OK so easily.
    Sometimes the signs are visible but at other times, something may feel slightly off and you can’t figure out what it is. So you drag on, trying to maintain your busy life until you realize that life has become unmanageable.

  • It's time for us to take mental health seriously, especially within the African-Caribbean community. The leaders of this project would like your attention and support in reaching as many people as possible, despite socio-economic factors and ethnicity. At the end of the day we are all humans and we are all vulnerable to mental health problems...I personally will be participating in this too as I have also been through what would be regarded by some as 'severe depression'. I feel its time to tell my story and I know a lot of my peers in the music and entertainment industry have been or go through the same things weekly/daily but have nobody to turn to. 
The makers of this documentary are looking for people of African/Caribbean descent, aged 20-35, who are happy to share their story and how the stigmas towards mental health have affected them.

Please email dami.adeyeye123@gmail.com with the subject "Unwrap" if you would like to participate

Submission deadline: 28th February 2019
