Christmas Gift Guide For Those Who Struggle With Their Mental Health

Christmas can be a stressful period for us all, but when you struggle with your mental health, it can be even worse. increased anxiety, stress or SAD can be just some of the many mental health problems people struggle with during the festive period. 

Not only is Christmas, a stressful time for many which can exacerbate existing mental health problems but the period after Christmas, the new year, can be even worse. Many people hate the cold, miserable months of January and February with nothing to look forward and the stress of paying off those large Christmas bills looming over us. 

Even though Christmas, can be a lovely time to spend with family and friends, it is not that easy for everyone, which is why, I think, if you know someone who is struggling with their mental health, Christmas can be a perfect opportunity to buy them something which might help ease their struggles or pain. There are lots of little things which may really help those who struggle with mental illness. Although nothing is going to magically make their problems go away, I'm certain they will be thankful for any extra support they receive, this Christmas.

Looking After Your Mental And Physical Health In The Colder Months


The nights are drawing in, there is a cold chill in the air and the leaves are changing colour. For me, autumn is definitely, without a shadow of a doubt my favourite season. I live for Halloween and being wrapped up in a cosy blanket on a cold evening. However, I know that for others, Autumn is the start of a really difficult period for many who struggle with both their physical and mental health.

Struggling with a mental illness such as Seasonal Affective Disorder or chronic pain during the autumn and winter months can be a struggle, which is why extra provisions should be put in place, to help you cope effectively in the colder months so the pain has a minimal impact on your quality of life as much as possible.

Why I No Longer Watch The News


I no longer watch the news. I know, what a crazy thing to say. Most people reading this, their response will be "Great, Nicole- who cares?" Which is good, because you are not judging people for the decisions they make in their life. You're a good person. Keep being you. 

However, some people, who hear you don't watch or read the news, will stir their noses up at that statement. They will think, I'm uneducated or would rather spend my time watching reality TV and don't care about the world around me. Those people couldn't be further from the truth. 

I made a conscious decision to stop watching or reading the news. It's a lifestyle choice that I made to benefit me and my mental health, not because I want to spend more time watching Love Island, or any other reality TV show. There is a very real reason, behind my choice.

Feeling Lost Online


The interwebs is a really big place. Well, literally speaking it isn't but it feels really big. It does to me, anyway- I don't know if anyone else feels the same. 

When I say 'I feel lost online' it sounds such an overdramatic statement. Like, how can anyone possibly feel lost online? You go on your phone, you log into Twitter or Instagram and as if by magic you can talk or stalk millions of people, online from the comfort of your own home.

But for those of us who have been on the internet for a while, particularly, if you have an online presence, it isn't as easy as that. I've been blogging since 2014, but things have changed. Blogging isn't the same as it used to be. The community isn't the same as it used to be. I'm not the same as I used to be...
