Mental Health Awareness Day

Tuesday the tenth of October two thousand and seventeen. Today. Mental Health Awareness Day. A global awareness day dedicated to the understanding and development of mental health.
Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem per year. In England alone, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem such as anxiety or depression, per week.
It is predicted that 10% of children and young people between the ages of 5 and 16 have a diagnosable mental health problem, yet so many of these people don't understand or know what's going on with them. Why? Because it's not talked about enough. Because it's not 'normal' in the present day, to openly address these issues. Because, when it is talked about, it is given feeble excuses like 'get over it' or 'perk up'. It's made to feel derogatory.

I want to put forward my experience. I know I did a while back, but it changes. What happens and what we feel doesn't change, but the way we think about it and approach it, can. So I shall say it again.

Montenegro 2017

A look book kinda thing...

So I just got back from our annual family holiday abroad and we went to the increasingly popular Montenegro (east of Italy, across the Adriatic Sea). Safe to say it was hotter than we had expected for Europe, with temperatures reaching up to 44°C (111°F about), but it was INSANE. Anyone of you struggling for a location I would highly recommend Montenegro. The people, the food, the views. All incredible. Some of it doesn't even seem real.

My Smoothie Recipe 001

So I kind of realised that I haven't posted on here for a while. I've been doing a lot of homework and revision, trying to stay healthy, sleeping eight hours a night, whilst also attempting to maintain a social life. Anyone who's gone through the "exam period" knows what I'm on about.

I've Made A Decision

So, as the title suggests, I've made a decision. It's not a major decision, but I guess it could be kind of life-changing.

The Lakes

The past couple of weeks, for some reason, have been really difficult for me. My emotions and moods just seem to be constant and repetitive, with little motivation to do anything or talk to anyone. I feel like sometimes we all get to a point, after constantly replacing and maintaining a persona, a mask, that we just can't anymore, and you need to come out yourself. Maybe just for a week, a day, or even an hour - just quit the acting and remove the mask.
