Mrs Bipolarity recently wrote a post called Stigma Sucks Sunday: A Recap. Basically it’s about negative stigma spoken by people in the public eye. It got me thinking of ways we can make a change. So I’ve done a brief vlog inspired by one Mrs Bipolarity’s comments from her post above.

If you feel able, please follow suit & do your own brief vlog supporting the real faces of mental illness.

OK well this is probably the most random post I’ve done yet. I’m also feeling very cringy about the vlog video section 😦

As you can see from the picture below, my cat Lucy spends an inordinate amount of time staring in fascination at our printer when it’s printing. However this shot alone doesn’t do it justice so I’ve done my first vlog to show it. See further below…

I read a blog yesterday, well when I say read I listened to it as it was a vlog. However after I was about to link to it here I see it’s been removed as the creator felt the lighting was wrong. Well Jaen Wirefly I think you should put it back up as this post has been inspired by it 🙂

Basically in the vlog she spoke about how we in the mental health blogging community tend to post a lot about how we feel when we’re low, but there aren’t many posts out there about what we do to try & keep healthy.

So here is a little of what I do:

– I use an Alternative Journal. I’ve found it really helpful, click on the link to see more.

– I have bipolar & so sleep is an important part of staying healthy. Here are some things that help me when I get into a rut of not sleeping well.

– A couple of tips when you’re feeling a tad hyper during the day.

– I’ve found Yoga to be really effective. I’m sure it would help a lot of you guys out there.

– In this post I explain some things I’d done recently as I was feeling fairly low.

– I think alcohol should be a big warning light to anyone with mental health issues. I’m not saying don’t drink, but as its a natural depressant be very careful on the amount you drink. It’s such a sneaky drug as you I feel great when I’m drunk, but the negative effects the day(s) after are a bitch!

OK well that’s enough of me preaching how to care of ones self. Hope you have found some useful tips in here. Let me know if you’ve found this useful in any way?

Again a big thanks for Jaen Wirefly for bringing this up.
