Today is Mental Health Month Blog Day, run by the American Psychological Association, to raise awareness towards mental health issues. My struggles were depression and anxiety.
What was yours? How can you help?
My blog is full of my rambles already. I just want to use this opportunity to remind people of the importance of mental health. Here are a few posts that might be useful in terms of seeking help and support. Otherwise, feel free to browse around for my experience, hope you find some inspiration.
- 10 things to say to, or do with a depressed person
- Depression Cure Concoction
- Famous faces with depression
- What I wish I knew about depression
My next venture, is how to help employee well-being through playfulness and creativity. Wish me luck.

Congrats on the baby, though I know you have some stress. And congrats on the new direction. Glad to see you writing again.
Not that I have any epiphanies from on high, but what I have found helpful lately is learning how to accept my thoughts, my ruminations, etc, rather than fighting them. Therefore they lose their power. It takes time, a lot of time. I stumbled across a guy named Noah Elkrief on Youtube. Pretty powerful stuff.
Namaste from Houston
Thanks for the suggestion Jim, will look Noah up. And yess, I agree with you, I also find solace in my own ramblings, and to learn to embrace them as part of me instead of rejecting them! Noch Noch
