Why mental health in men is such an issue + 5 action steps you can take today

Why don’t we talk about mental health in men more? I’ve noticed a fairly sizable cultural shift in my circle of female friends and relatives lately.

Want to go off your antidepressant meds? Here are my uncensored thoughts!

Do you hate your antidepressant meds? I think almost anyone who lives with depression has been there at some point. I know I have. Right now, I’m limited in what I can take because I’m pregnant. And honestly, not a fan of my current antidepressant meds. I would give a kidney for more energy. So, …

5 ways to fight extreme fatigue + take your life back

Are you wondering how to get more energy? The past several months have taken it out of people. Whether it’s depression, anxiety, grief, or an empathic response to the world around you, you are just plain worn out. You want to just lie in bed all day and binge watch “your murders,” as my husband would disdainfully call them. (He doesn’t need to know who killed JonBenét, and that’s so weird to me!)

I hit rock bottom.

7 helpful questions you need to ask to improve your positive thinking

I’m going to go out on a limb and say you could use some help with positive thinking.

There is nothing to be ashamed of if your positive thinking is a little off. I am right there with you. 2020 has been one disaster after another for millions of people around the world.

This has been a really challenging year for me too. I am pregnant after some issues earlier in the year. We are overjoyed, but our struggles are always in the back of our mind. We’re also struggling with disappointment that our oldest is not going to have the normal kindergarten experience she was so excited for. We miss friends we haven’t seen in months.

So, like I said, I totally get it. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: If you aren’t a little worried or stressed right now, you’re probably not paying attention.

Are you drowning in negative thoughts?
I was for way too long. I spent all of my adolescence in a state of nearly crippling low self-esteem. My early adulthood saw me feeling like a failure for not being like everybody else. I still deal with it, but it has taken until my early to mid 30s to really step into my identity, and wear it with pride. Much of my success there has to do with working on my positive thinking.
