“Trees” - (a poem). Driving around town makes me super anxious right now. Everything is so different and doesn’t feel right. I am so grateful I have an awesome support system and don’t have to drive. Seeing the devastation caused by Hurricane Florence is truly overwhelming. I have to insist on self-care....keeping a routine, taking my meds, trying to sleep, staying hydrated, eating well, practicing mindfulness, joy hunting, coping skills, etc. Being well takes a lot of effort and staying well takes even more when stressful events have happened. . . If you are feeling overwhelmed due to Hurricane Florence don’t suppress those feelings! Talk about it & seek help (911, mobile crisis, suicide prevention lifeline, disaster relief crisis line, go to ER, etc). .

Thoughts on parental media use: ______________________________ I learned a new term this week- “technoference.” It refers to the interference that happens in day-to-day interactions, caused by technology. The study I read was looking specifically at mother-child interactions, but I am learning there is new research on couples as well. ______________________________ This is a new area of study, so results will be forthcoming over the next several decades I am sure, but think about it. We form secure attachments with others when we feel we can depend on them, that they are responsive to our emotional needs. How available are you- I mean really, truly available- when you’re scrolling through social media on your phone or checking your email “real quick?” Does your kid, spouse, or friend have to whine or say your name repeatedly, or wait while you tend to other presumably-not-urgent things? _____________________________ I wanted to share some amazing ideas from friends who responded to my stories earlier this week. One friend shared that she canceled Netflix and her husband set 15 minutes limits on Twitter/reddit. She said, “I already can tell a difference in my habits, so I’m calling that a success.” ____________________________ Another friend shared that she deletes social media apps from her phone except for when she is alone, so she won’t even be tempted to use them around her kids. LOVE the idea. ______________________________ Keep sharing! What are your #protips? 📷: fall has arrived in the Colorado mountain country. Spent some wonderful off-the-grid time there with the family today!

I try to encourage healthy eating as much as posible but I know when you are trying to focus on healing your mind it can be hard to focus on food. So fuck it, have the chocolate brownie with ice cream on top. Enjoy that delicious brownie, you deserve it!

Whaaaat? I’m stress eating! When my hooman is stressed, I’m stressed. She is working at home after a long day in the office and I will eat this on her behalf because this ice cream ain’t gonna eat itself and her emails ain’t gonna answer themselves 😂 #dessert #sugar #sugarhigh #sugarrush #stress #stresseating #calories #icecream #youscream #weallscreamforicecream #cake #strawberries #emails #work #workaholic #deadline #stopemailingme #monkeysthatarestressedout #copingskills #coping #positivereinforcement #primatesofinstagram #potassiumAF

What is a coping skill? For whatever reason, clients don’t ask questions about coping skills. They usually let me initiate the conversation and rarely tell me “nah we can skip this one. I’m good on coping skills.” I’m not sure if it’s out of embarrassment or shame but that ends here. It’s okay to not know what a coping skill is or why counselors push learning more and actually utilizing them. If we were all 100% clear on what they were, why we use them and how to effectively use them, then mental illness wouldn’t be what it is today. My personal belief is that the more coping skills you have, the stronger your ability to control impulses. That’s not to say that just because you have coping skills means you will never give in to impulse again. No. All skills take time. And impulse control is a skill you WILL develop and strengthen. For now, we need to focus on filling your toolbox so you can learn how to control impulses and decrease your likelihood of giving into self harming urges. I encourage all my clients to have at least 10 coping skills and quite frankly, they can be anything. Let me rephrase - as long as they don’t cause harm to you or anyone around you, I’m good with whatever you choose. Leave your top 5 most utilized coping skills in the comments. Tomorrow, well start with my favorite coping skill. Can you guess what it is? Until tomorrow - Be well. #anxiety #depression #trauma #selfharm #mentalillness #counseling #socialwork #therapy #suicide #seekhelp #health #selflove #loveyourself #mindfulness #healing #gofundme #cutting #coping #copingskills #stigma

You all made it! We did it! It’s Friday and it’s time to relax & recharge in whatever way that looks for you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One way to exercise self-compassion is to recognize and reflect on our week from solely a positive lens. Try writing down a list, at least 1 for each day, of positive moments that stood out to you this week! It does not have to be something huge and it also does not need to be “positive.” It can be something difficult that you were able to get through, a time you felt content when other times the same situation has left you angry, etc! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to practice what I preach, so here are some things on my list: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • Allowed myself to rest when I needed to • Enjoyed having dinner with a friend • Made it to my exercise classes (late, but still showed up!) • ✔️ off a lot on my “To Do List” • Made it through my longest work day! • Enjoyed TV time after work • Had quality time with another friend • Did my self-care skin-care routine daily • Did some cleaning ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • Feeling good about my work this week! • chatted with a few friends that I hadn’t seen in while⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • sunny, beautiful days! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your turn! I would love for you to share your list with me!

Today I had a big speaking event, where I led a workshop for about 100 HR employees, and you know what? It was AWESOME! I love getting in front of big groups, and it’s the place where I truly feel like my skills and personality most come alive. . But you know what? I get nervous before every single presentation. It doesn’t matter how many people are there, how well I know the material, or how many times I’ve rehearsed it, I still get nervous. . “Is this good enough? Will people get it? Does this make sense? Is this enough material? Is this too dull? Too jazzy?” Self-doubt and fear creep in, as my brain starts to plant little seeds of doubt about something that I know, deep down, is one of my greatest strengths. . As much as I wish these thoughts would just disappear and never come back, I know that’s not realistic. So I double down on self-talk. I remind myself of my successes and strengths. I remind myself that my thoughts are not always accurate, and that I can still move forward even when I’m anxious. I lean on my coping statements, infusing encouraging, balanced, and rational self-talk into my brain. . This is a learned and practiced skill; it’s not second nature, even for me. But it’s doable with practice. Our brains are capable of growth. . Have a few go to coping statements, and use them OFTEN. Infuse them into moments of worry and doubt. Call them up when the struggle is strong. And say the words slowly, even when your brain doesn’t full accept them. . If you’re in need of a few coping statements of your own, head over to my website (link in profile), scroll down to the bottom, and search “coping statements.” I’ve got a printable list with all of my favorites. . Remember, we have the power to help our brains think differently. And that is pretty freaking awesome if you ask me. So let’s get to work! . . . . #drallisonanswers #psychologist #selftalk #copingskills #healthyselftalk #mentalhealth #knowyourworth

Okay so nothing really happened today, I've just been thinking about the last dew days - was a little overwhelmed and bordeline doing something stupid, but I'm fine now x I've decided to share a #poem of mine I wrote about 2 years ago, and is till a favourite of mine to this day. Feel free to comment your opinions. ♡Love, C ♡ (Scroll down / across to read) ●•●•● Confined to my mind, Thoughts and dreams lay scattered in the graveyard that is my soul. Some days the noise is to loud - my head is to crowded, Some days I feel everything at once. Most days the noise is deafening silent - my head a dying desert, Most days I feel nothing at all. My mind never sleeps, My mind never settles, An upbeat rhythm that roars painfully, Till I'm near insanity. Overwhelming, under-whelming, Loud, silent, Spotlight, shadows.... They come in waves, Strong surges of emotions tipped frothy white, Waves that knock me down, Pulling me to my grave. The waves do not leave me alone, Dragging me under, Burning my lungs and stinging my eyes, My only friends are the shadows that dance. The light fades, I fall deeper and deeper, Am I drowning or suffocating? One is dry and one is wet , either way I choke by the fingers squeezing my fragile heart. I feel like I am dying, Drowning in the abyss of life, Slipping away, Dragged down by the anchor of my past. Emotional and Emotionless, A dying flame in the sea, Rocking back and forth, Slowly dying out... I don't know what's worse, Drowning beneath the waves, Or dying from thirst... ●▪●▪● #poetry #poetsofinstagram #amateurpoet #real #nofilter #emotion #metaphor #imagery #anxiety #depression #mentalhealthblogger #copingskills #copingmethods #distraction #thoughts #dealingwithmentalhealth #dealingwithdepression #quote #emotivelanguage #english #reallifepoetry #realife #reallife #mentalhealthawareness #stillnotforattention #struggling #fightingmyownmind #fightingmyself #recovering

New DP 🧡💛 I'm not one to jump on the train to whats particularly fashionable especially when it comes to blogging, I do what I do and when I do it because I enjoy it. BUT, I think mental health has become a bit of a trend or should I say certain aspects of it have. By that I mean, people use their mental health as click bait or a means to be relatable to others in order to gain a moral high-ground. But seeing as I've always talked about it I feel that I can continue to talk about it and raise awareness in my own way without becoming "one of those bloggers" ... I hope! Lately things have been pretty shit and I've felt like nothing is ever going to get better. I have felt my lowest in the last few months that I have felt in a long time, years even. Things got BAD. Like really bad and quickly. Right now I'm not better and I might not be for a while but the black cloud is slowly dissipating, with help. And by help I mean counselling. I suppose to summarise and not go into too much detail just yet (a blog post will be on its way soon about how it all goes), is that getting help is not embarrassing, it doesn't make you weak and it doesn't mean you are one of a better word ... mental. Counselling isn't for everyone but for me personally, its really helping to help me get back to who I really am. Don't knock it until you've tried it, kid 😘 REMEMBER: Always be kind, everybody is fighting their own battle! #MentalHealth #Counselling #Recovery #Depression #DepressionAwareness #Mentalllness #MentalHealthAwareness #MentalWellness #Anxiety #CopingSkills #SelfCare #Positivity #Bekind #Bloggers #BloggersUK #LBloggers #LBloggersUK #Lifestyle #LifestyleBloggers #InstaGood #InstaDaily #Igers #IgersUK #Love #Happiness #Cheshire #BBloggers #BBloggersUK #BeautyBloggers #FBloggers

Waking up everyday, drinking this golden sunshine☀️, doing my workouts and creating a balancing routine⚖️ for myself has brought me so much joy 🎉- I don’t even know where to start. 🔢 • From having so many new friends that are all trying to better themselves with me👩‍❤️‍👩👭( #girlgangaf ), to having people to talk to no matter what comes up and they will be there, to making myself feel better everyday by having motivation to achieve my goals. 😍🙏💯 • To the convenience of being able to do this all from my own home🏠 and having hundreds of workouts at my fingertips🤚🏻, to the feeling of freedom that this brings to finally be seeing results 👀that I have tried to work towards for a long time 🏃🏻‍♀️and it being totally doable, even for a beginner like me...and I can still eat in a way that’s very much non restrictive. 🥂🍟🍕🥗🍤🍓🍇🍭🍬 • This has truly been something that has been an outlet for me and has given me the tools I need to be able to cope with stress, anxiety, feelings of being overwhelmed. 😖😩Something I don’t really talk about a lot but you maybe got an idea with my last post. This coaching opportunity has been what has given me so much happiness since I started, of course physically, but most of all, psychologically. 💪🏼➕🧠Yes, I am moving my body everyday and watching it get stronger, which is amazing, but I’m gaining so many tools to help navigate through all the mental uneasiness of life. ✔️✔️✔️ 💫🤸🏻‍♀️🧘🏻‍♀️🌟🌈🙏✨

When I was in grade school I had a gym teacher who always said “Can you cope? Cope.” I was embarrassed at the play on my name, but I think that maybe my last name does serve as a reminder. We all have to cope with something. I think about all my family and friends, and how much they have had to deal with over the course of their lives. Sometimes we can’t cope and that is okay too. I just want to send love out to everyone. I know we are all trying to deal with life the best we can.❤️ You got dis! #coping #copingskills #trying #onwardmarch #yougotdis #hugs

✨Why do we care so much what others think?? In a room full of people, it’s a common problem to focus on the few who don’t like you ~ rather than those that clearly do. What else could you do with the energy wasted on worrying about others opinions? ... 👭Humans are naturally social beings and it’s adaptive - to some extent- to care what others think about you. To want others to approve of your decisions + to like you... 👉If you find yourself easily swayed by others, feeling confused when it’s time to make your own choices, or making decisions mainly based on others expectations for you, it’s likely that you’re *too worried* about being judged. ✨Too many opinions in your head makes it very hard to hear your own inner voice 🌸 It helps to remember some simple facts: 🔹it’s impossible to make everyone happy + you can’t please everyone, it’s exhausting. 🔹differences of opinion are part of what makes the world interesting. Disagreeing with the crowd can be refreshing. ✨ ✨ 🔹speaking out and standing in your truth allows others get to know the real you better. 🔹getting clearer on your values helps you to really tune into your inner voice. ✨✨✨ 🔹no matter how hard you try to do your best or to make a good impression, you have no control over what anyone thinks about you. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨🔹you’ll worry less about what people think of you when you realize how little they do (people have 50-70,000+ thoughts per day, it’s unlikely that they’re actually holding attention on you)🙏 #worrynomore #anxietyrelief #carelessaboutwhatothersthink #beyourself #vulnerability #empoweryourself #positivethoughts #positivevibes #innerstrength #intuition #growthmindset #therapistspfinstagram

The degree to which we cannot deeply feel our body’s interior is the degree to which we crave external stimulation [peter levine] . . My interpretation: •Happiness is already within us- we just have to do some excavating of old beliefs •We have put our worth and satisfaction with life on everything else but ourselves •It’s our choice to ignore the body or to listen to it •Underlying everything, we have a deep craving to be seen, heard, understood, and appreciated first by ourselves and then by others . . Next week, I have the privilege and honor to teach how to come back to the body and return the power of choice to YOU, and it’s probably not in the way you think. Will you give it a try? . .

Happy unofficial #joshgroban day! Ive been awake or I should say never really slept because of how much pain I’m in . I’m feeling super crummy today, but for once I’m not wishing to be anywhere else but bed . One of my favorite things to do when I’m having a hard time is to plug into my headphones , blast my music as loud as I can handle and escape to another world for a few hours . I’ve been on a huge @joshgroban kick and his music has really helped me get through some really rough days these last few months. His new album #bridges is out today and so is his new Netflix show #thegoodcop so I have plenty of distractions to keep my mind off the pain I’m in today. 🤗 To those out there who struggle with anxiety and depression like I do, check out some of my favs off his new album, they have beautiful messages and I really resonate with so many of the lyrics. Hopefully they bring you happiness and a sense of not feeling so alone like they do for me. Panic attack tip : One thing I love about his music so much is all the instruments and beautiful lyrics that make up his songs. There’s been several times where I have been on the verge of a panic attack and I’ve been able to ground myself by listening to one song over and over focusing on different instruments each time until I’m calm. I’ve tried so many other grounding techniques when it comes to anxiety such as the focusing on senses, and numbers; but one day I was beginning to panic and I listened to his music and came up with this little trick! So next time you feel that anxiety and panic sneaking up on you give this a try with a song you enjoy ; and hopefully it can help you too!.... also everyone needs this album in their lives . That is all.

*I don’t often post food pictures and I want to emphasize that everyone’s tastes, mean plans, bodies, etc. are different and my breakfast isn’t always going to look like someone else’s! Social media isn’t always the most accurate representation of what someone is or isn’t consuming. Do what’s best for YOUR recovery* • • Recovery ebbs and flows. Some days are easier than others. Urges and struggles are not failing. Urges are thoughts, and we can choose to not let them become actions. • • Choosing to listen to my dietitian and recovery mind this morning while I enjoy some breakfast*, tea in my favorite Harry Potter mug (Go Gryffindor/Ravenclaw!), and journaling my feelings about recovery. • • I’m going out of town this weekend! Instead of feeling I need to “earn” calories or measuring what I have now in prep for vacation, I’m focusing on nourishment so I’m full and happy for the journey :) Nourishing myself now will help me continue to do so during the trip. • • Here’s to choosing recovery and taking it bite by bite. Happy Friday, folks! • • Tags - #edfighter #edrecovery #recoverywarrior #fightinged #anorexiarecovery #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #journaling #copingskills #therapy #dietitiansrock #lovemytreatmentteam #eatingdisorderrecovery #chooserecovery #breakfast

What if you got rid of your scale? . What purpose does weighing yourself serve? Does it make you feel good about yourself, or more likely does it bring shame or discouragement? . Scales don't actually do anything for your body. Eating well, exercising, getting enough sleep and practicing good mental health habits are what create changes in your body (and your brain!) . What if everytime you wanted to weigh yourself you asked these questions instead... . •How can I make good food choices today? •What exercise can I incorporate into my day? •How many deep breaths can I take right now to calm myself and reset? •Can I get a little more sleep or find extra time for myself if I turned off the TV, or put down my phone, my iPad, etc. for even just 20 min? . . . #health #fitnessmotivation #fitness #mindfulness #kindness #compassion #support #hope #copingskills #wellness #psychology #selfcare #momlife #marriage #helpfultips #empowerment #anxiety #encouragement #bepresent #slowdown #mentalhealth #depression #inspire #healing #livewell #liveauthentic #intentionalliving #perspective #mindset

How is it that we treat our families with such love, our friends with undying support and children with such warmth and kindness, yet we so often don't award ourselves with that same compassion? One of the most useful questions to challenge your inner critic is to ask, "would I speak to a child like that?". It stops you, right in your tracks. . . #mentalhealth #journeytowellness #selfcompassion #selfempowerment #selfcare #socialanxiety #selfcareisntselfish #selflove #support #anxiety #affirmations #selfacceptance #depressionsupport #stressed #breakthestigma #mindfulness #innercritic #cartoon #illustrator #gratitude #mentalhealthawareness #cartoonart #drawing #copingskills #mentalhealthadvocate #counselling #illustration #wellbeing #lifecoach #psychology

A little reminder that not every day needs to be full of activity and stress. Take regular moments to slow down and absorb the good and peaceful things around you. It’s a rebellious tonic to a culture that glorifies being busy. 🐌 . . If things feel a bit hectic and you need some help, counselling can explore mindfulness and coping strategies for stress / anxiety.

You guys don't even know what you're missing! . Obvs we're obnoxiously happy in this pic - it was also after making it to this locale in a downpour unscathed and after some mighty tasty burgers (gf and vegan options available ;) ) . these girls are a blast! dance parties ✅ late night smoothie bowls ✅ late night wine and chat ✅ pizza/burger dates ✅ . and you're totally invited to join us in all that fun stuff too.. ... but ya know what... life sucks sometimes and finding a group of people I can be real with is HUGE for me! . Don't get me wrong, I've had amazing BFFs and close friends my whole life and always someone to talk to, including some amazing friends currently <3 but having a group this big is new! (lots more than the 4 who got together in SC this summer ;) ) . I can be real with a whole group of people. I've never had a school, occupation, or entire friends group where I could talk to anyone in the whole group. . This is my coaching team I'm talking about. Coworkers. Business partners. I didn't encounter them as friends, but wow have they supported me through some stuff! . My point is- I do this to help people as my primary passion, to earn an income and stay home with my kids as a huge motivator, but never did I expect the personal gains and wellbeing of such amazing support and friendships. . check out the empty space in this photo - we have plenty of room for more - and given the size of these ladies hearts I bet they'll welcome you as is too! No one is perfect and we get that. . I have two messages here - in general - let's build each other up and be there for other people. enough with the bickering and undermining. Second - if you are looking for a tribe, a full or part time job, or just a way to get your fitness or nutrition in check - we've got you covered. <3 Message me or comment if this speaks to you at all. Maybe we can just reconnect and support each other, or maybe you're ready for a change and want to join one of the openings on our wellness team - no pressure either way, but why not reach out and just get some info <3 . . . . Money is definitely secondary motivator to me - but since I mentioned income as a plus-See comments

Starting another mandala... words came up - I don’t think I’ve ever added words to a mandala... intuitively creating art is revealing and thought provoking

Reconnecting with mandalas. I use mandalas as part of my self care / mindfulness routine - it’s an active meditation and very grounding. I’ve neglected this for too long and I’m so glad to pick it up again 😊

Jag har gått den igen. Min underbara promenadväg längs stranden. Inte lång men oj vad mycket energi och styrka den ger mig. För jag är sjukskriven. Utmattad. Ingen idé att tänka på hur olägligt den kom. Bara konstatera att den är här för att hälsa på och bo över ett tag 🛌. Utmattningen alltså🛁. Jag kan väl inte direkt påstå att den är en fiende men inte världens roligaste sällskap 🧙🏻‍♀️. Har haft betydligt roligare. Jag dukar upp med fika ☕️, bjuder på mackor. Nån mat blir det inte. Hoppas på att min gäst ska gå och köpa en tårtbit men det har inte hänt än 🍰En bit prinsesstårta vore gott. Sen är det bara att krypa ner under mysfilten och göra det bästa av situationen. Utmattningen får klara sig bäst den vill. Jag tänker inte anstränga mig för att pyssla om den. Då kanske den stannar länge och det vill jag inte. Nej max två veckor till. Men av erfarenhet vet jag att de är ett rättså sällskapssjukt släkte 🤼‍♀️. Vi får se. Hopefully back in business soon! 🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏼‍♂️ SYNTOLKNING: Mälarens strand med träd och stenar.

SELF CARE -- “When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life." – Jean Shinoda Bolen Self care is not selfishness, but a positive behaviour aimed at maintaining wellbeing. Some tips: ❄ plan self care - book, pay, commit ❄ label self care as a health behaviour vs indulgence ❄ set boundaries and say no if you are exhausted or need time to reenergise ❄ be aware of your early warning signs of stress and step back ❄ role model self care to children ❄ remember a balanced person performs better and has higher wellbeing Photo: a delightful day dog sledding in Finland. All snuggled up under huge blankets, I savoured every relaxing moment of the run through the snowy forest.
