5 Ways To Deal With Back To School Anxiety


Back To School Anxiety

As you guys know my online classes started yesterday and after reading your posts or some of your comments I know that a lot of you guys are back to school or are going to be starting school soon as well. I haven’t made a post about mental health recently so I thought that I write one today.
I am very happy that school is starting again because it kind of gives me something to do but at the same time it can be quite anxiety inducing for people who suffer from anxiety or even for people who don’t.
I think this year in particular is a bit more difficult because online classes can be a lot different from regular in-school classes and if you do have in-school class that’s probably still quite anxiety inducing since you have to be extra careful.
Here are five ways…

My Bipolar Perspectives of a Unipolar World by Stuart Sanderson.

Since today is Thursday I thought I would share this post by a fellow blogger who share post on mental health along with other things.

My Bipolar Perspectives of a Unipolar World

A Selection of Perceptions and OpinionsFromthe Point of View of a PersonWitha MentalIllness.

“Wake Up!”

You are part of a generation that relies on social media for interaction rather than actual physical interaction. You watch a TV that in essence actually watches you. Butting into your life and thrusting fantasy lifestyles, conglomerates products down your throat, fear via the media and secure your insecurities for yourself. You have become afraid of being left behind and you can’t settle for what you have.

The virtual insanity of the situation is utterly depressing. You have become hypnotised in belief that nature is not normal and growing old is sacrilege. Botox, tummy tucks, liposuction, face lifts, anti-wrinkle cream, spandex pants, hair transplants, veneers, boob jobs, lip fillers, fad diets, PT sessions, false this and false that. When you come to realise that you have the most beautiful asset…

How To Prioritize Your Mental Health In University

With fall semester starting soon for a lot and having already started for others I thought I would share this post.


I asked on one of my posts last week what type of posts you guys wanted to read and quite a few said about mental health and some said about university so I decided to write a kind of two in one post!

University can be stressful and overwhelming for a lot of people and if you have mental health problems it can be that way even more so. Here are some ways to make sure your mental health doesn’t suffer while you’re in university.

  1. Take care of your body- make sure you’re sleeping on time, eating right and getting some exercise. It may seem like time consuming or a waste of time but these are actually really important to your mental health. Not eating well and a lack of sleep and exercise can really mess up your brain chemicals and make your mental health problems worse.
  2. Plan everything out-

How To Help People In Your Life With Mental Health Problems


Since May is Mental Health Awareness Month I thought I would spend this week sharing different types of posts that are about mental health awareness. For more posts on mental health click here.

Just be there- Sometimes you just need someone to be there for you. Even though you may not understand what they are going through and even though you may not be able to do much to do to help it makes a huge difference just to be there for the person. Try to check up on them once in a while, invite them to things even if they decline and help them feel like they are a part of something.

Don’t try to solve their problems- Even though you are concerned about the person don’t try to tell them what to do, that their problems aren’t real or how to solve their problems. You are not in…

5 Ways To Prioritize Your Mental Health


Life can get overwhelming but your mental health should be one of your priorities. Here are 5 ways that will help you prioritize your mental health in 2020:

Be Selfish

When it comes to your mental health it’s okay to be selfish. It’s okay to take some time out to work on your mental health. So if you ever feel overwhelmed or like your mental health may be deteriorating just remember it’s okay to take some time to work on it even though it may seem selfish.

Make “Me” Time

Make sure you are taking some time out every day for some “me” time. It’s important to take some time to relax and do something you enjoy that helps you relax. Even if it means taking some time to do absolutely nothing.

Learn To Say No

It’s okay to say no to people/things when you aren’t feeling so great. If…

Mental Health Awareness Month

As you guys know May is Mental Health Awareness Month and therefore I decided to write posts about mental health this whole week. Today I decided to post about “Things You Need To Stop Telling People With Mental Health Problems” because a lot of people may not know how to talk to someone who suffers from mental health problems. Some people may accidentally say something insensitive without realizing it’s insensitive. I thought I would share the things people say most often and why they are the wrong thing to say. Let me know in the comments what the weirdest/most insulting thing someone has told you about your mental health.

“Get over it”

If it was thateasy do you think we wouldn’t have just gotten over it? This is a really sad thing to say and if anything it just shows how ignorant you are about…
