We will be supporting this with a challenge everyone can get involved in during August. #repost @forest.goat with @get_repost ・・・ Ok legggggooo 💥💥 3 months, 10 days, 18hrs 45mins 17 secs till I tackle my biggest challenge to date...all my training and hard work will pay its dividends... August is coming screaming around the corner and need your help to reach my target goal of $5000... @livinorg are out doing the community proud and breaking the stigma on mental illness. 1 in 5 people (20%) of people aged 16-85 experience a mental health illness in any year. So with statistics like that, we all know someone that is fighting their way through the daily struggles of life, either holding everything in and not reaching out or you may know someone that is more comfortable speaking about it... let's make this a dinner table conversation and put an end to people loosing their life to suicide. #rundownunder#itaintweaktospeak#suicideprevention#suicideawareness#marathonrunning#runnercommunity
I was going through my pics looking for a specific pic of my dog, and found this. It’s my birthday and maybe that’s your way of saying hi. I can’t believe how much time has gone by since you left this earth. Still kind of pissed at you. Not a day goes by when I don’t think of you. I love you and wish you were still here. ❤️ #suicideprevention#loveyoualways
If you’re wondering why I posted this AGAIN... please see what @iamzoie posted. So so sad. A beautiful life extinguished. Heartbreaking 💔🌈 RIP @lovelynigel 💔🌈 in solidarity and support of all those kids who are bullied and harassed, alienated and shunned STILL in 2019 for being in a relationship with a someone of the same gender. This STILL GOES ON IN 2019. Showing love to all these young people who are confused and can’t speak up for fear of being ridiculed or cast out, for anyone who can’t speak up and say they’re in love with someone because they’re scared of being fired from their job. For all those people, young or old, who are afraid to hold hands in public and keep their feelings and their love SILENT. Especially though, for these kids who suffer in SILENCE and kill themselves because they can’t take it any more. These kids who were so pushed out by family or friends or both, these kids who were so confused by their own NATURAL feelings, these kids who were picked on and kicked and spat on in school, these CHILDREN who had no support or guidance, these CHILDREN who were innocent and kind and lost, all these kids who believed that being gay was so wrong and shameful they felt the only way out was to stay SILENT, harm and kill themselves. That’s who this is for. And to everyone who DOESN’T WANT to mind their business, for everyone who CHOSE to belittle and abuse these children for who they are, who they love... YOU have blood on your hands. And I hope you lie awake tonight thinking about that. #gay#gaypride#pride2019#homosexuality#loveislove#supportouryoungpeople#supportourchildren#manchester#love#befree#silence#supportyourkids#talktoyourkids#education#suicideprevention#lgbt#awareness#bullying#mentalhealth#gayisokay#gaygirls#gayboys#lesbian#homosexual#homophobic#homophobia#truelove#selfharm
So it's looks like I'll be throwing myself out of a plane on 17th September on Keith Flint's birthday to raise awareness and money for good causes. Suicide is shit and I feel so passionate that there needs to be more awareness and help so we all feel comfortable to talk about it. It's a scary place to be. I would be so so SO grateful for any sponsors for this ... ❤️🔥 @mindcharity @theprodigyofficial #mentalhealth#suicideprevention#suicide#justgiving#jumpforflinty#theprodigy#itsgoodtotalk https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/jump4flinty?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Yimbyprojectpage&utm_content=jump4flinty&utm_campaign=projectpage-share-owner&utm_term=pMWK9452k
💕Happy earth day 🌎 Thank you for keeping me well grounded, giving me a beautiful way to wake up to a new day, reminding me that an unfortunate event or day will be nothing when the✨ stars come out and that I'll have other opportunities when the sun comes up again ☀️.
🌸 Yesterday was a super, duper scary day for me. Not only did I meet someone for the first time but I also had my first ever Wagamama’s (no hate for never having a Wagga’s) I spent bank holiday Monday in the gorgeous sunshine in London, and it was beautiful. It was so lovely just chilling out and not having to stress about anything or anyone. Don’t get me wrong I was 100% awkward because I am terrible when it comes to meeting new people, but I just felt so comfortable and it was just nice. Challenging myself to new restaurants is 100% something I want to start doing. After all food is just fuel and should never be feared. I hope you all had a gorgeous Easter weekend and tucked into some yummy chocolate in the sunshine❤️ ~E
I haven't posted much about my #breastcancer diagnosis for a variety of reasons, mostly because I have little to say about having #cancer that hasn't been said already. But even more than that, I remain super pissed off about it. I dream every night of #backpacking, #trailrunning, #hiking, #wilderness, #naturism, and then I wake up to being only halfway through a chemo treatment that has turned me into a freak and awaiting a future surgery and estrogen suppression that will make me less than I want to be. Since getting my diagnosis I've been 5150'd and have felt particularly depressed. I'm calmer now, but some days still I wonder whether it's worth it to live through this given the potential lasting effects and the unsatisfying life I've chosen for myself. I feel trapped and frustrated and bereft and nonplussed and scared--and I basically have it easy as far as cancer treatment goes. Many, like my dad, have had to face far, far worse. I'm still #running. Just 5Ks about every other day, but that to me is just fine. I feel pretty strong. And I've been given some fresh insight and a kick in my too-often complainy pants that was long overdue. These gifts are helpful for coping and growing. I don't ask much about my prognosis, because the bottom line is that even if I survive this disease, I could still be living the last years of my life. I am and always have been, essentially, because who knows? The world is not a safe place, and life is terribly cruel and unfair. Having a serious diagnosis has allowed me to conceptualize and contextualize that in ways I never could have or would have otherwise. So now I'm getting off my ass. Finishing languishing projects, living with intention, erasing regrets, trying to strive for the life I want instead of waiting around for something good to materialize in a future that I innocently but erroneously felt to be limitless. I made the custom tank in the photo. It counts down my treatments and gives me a sense of accomplishing
“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.” – Eckhart Tolle . . . Demons are not soul dragging, blood sucking creatures with horns and scaly skin. Facing your demons is a term for dealing with the repressed or unconscious aspects of your personality. Through awareness and understanding, you become aware of your unconscious actions, so as not to become a victim to the programmed patterns which accompany them. . . . You need to find yourself and all you're hiding from. There under all your insecurities, fears and doubts. It takes guts to face your demons. Luckily, everyone has the innate capacity to tread this rocky path, and already has. . . . Like this great quote above by Eckhart mentions, no one is exempt, no matter what their life looks like, or what story they tell you. Every life is mix of treasures and traumas. By persevering, speaking lovingly to yourself when the going gets rough, and assuming the best, you will make it to the other side. . . . Be gentle on yourself as you undertake this process. Don’t pass judgement or criticism on what is merely observe through awareness. In doing so you not only liberate yourself from that past, you create a porthole into an unlimited future. . . .

Dear #warrior It is okay to lose battles but do not quit this war. It is okay to feel disheartened but hang on to hope. If your hope is gone, reach out to someone. Anyone. It doesn’t matter what time it is or how lost you feel- find an anchor. You do not need to feel strong or act a certain way or put yourself together. Hopelessness and fear are FILTHY LIARS. You can rest, you can cry, you can be mad as hell, but do whatever it takes to live another day. The pains in your life do not take away your value. You are important, you are valued, you are loved. If you need to reach out to a friend you haven’t yet met, the National Suicide Prevention line is 1-800-273-TALK. Also, 911 is a totally legit option if you need it. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨For NON-emergency, non-time-sensitive venting sessions, you can always reach out to us at AEEP. To everyone who feels out of sorts or is having thoughts of self harm, breathe and rest in the warmth that you are loved deeply past your pain. YOU ARE A WARRIOR. 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼 Which of our warriors will make themselves available to be an anchor to others who are feeling discouraged or hopeless?
If you have read my story you know that my career ended in devastation. There really isn't an area of my life that was not negatively impacted, and I certainly felt like ending my life a few times during those dark years. It is a known fact that suicide is higher among medical professionals than the general population, in some cases twice as common. Pamela Wible writes in her book, "Physician Suicide Letters, "Malpractice can be devastating. Humans make mistakes. Yet when doctors make mistakes, they're publicly shamed in court, on TV and in newspapers (that live online forever). Many continue to suffer the agony of harming someone else — unintentionally — for the rest of our lives." Dr. Wible keeps a running tally on her website, and updates her article as the heart aching number increases: What I’ve learned from 1,243 doctor suicides. Medical professionals speaking out about how losing their license wreaked havoc in their lives is becoming more common: They Fell Like Dominos: My License, My Certification, My Profession, by Anne Phelan-Adams, MD Family Medicine is a detailed account of the harrowing loss of career and identity that can occur. She tries to educate licensed practitioners by speaking out about her experience, " I have learned over these months that countless other unwary practitioners have been victims of the same disciplinary fervor. I know now that, to keep their licenses, most of these physicians will submit to what’s demanded of them and they will stay silent to protect their reputations. I, however, was physically, emotionally and financially unable to submit to my Board’s final demand. As a result, I lost everything professionally. I have nothing to lose by speaking out." Dr. Mo also writes a detailed account of the unjust process that he experienced at the hand of a licensing board in the article he published titled, "Your Medical License is Revoked- Now What?" He explains in the article that your license is forever tainted,
1. Meditation Changes Structures in the Brain⠀ *⠀ Some studies suggest practicing mindfulness meditation can actually change the structures of the brain. A study published in the journal Psychiatry Research that was conducted by a team of researchers at Harvard University used brain scans to determine that eight weeks of a mindfulness training program called Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) increased the cortical thickness in the hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls learning and memory and plays an important role in emotion regulation.⠀ *⠀ 2. Meditation and Regulates stress - major reduction⠀ *⠀ 3. How Meditation Can Help Improve Focus and Concentration⠀ *⠀ A study published in March 2013 in the journal Psychological Science suggests that mindfulness meditation can decrease mind wandering and improve cognitive performance. The researchers found that a two-week mindfulness meditation course helped participants’ focus and memory while completing the GRE. The training led to improved scores and reduced the occurrence of distracted thoughts.⠀ *⠀ 4. Meditation and Protecting the Aging Brain⠀ *⠀ Preliminary research also suggests that meditation may help protect the brain against aging. Research published in the journal NeuroImage by a team from UCLA suggested that people who meditate have less age-related atrophy in the brain’s white matter. ⠀ *⠀ Mental Health -⠀ -⠀ ______________________________________________ ☑️FOLLOW👉🏽 @gs_golden_supplement ☑️FOLLOW👉🏽 @gs_golden_supplement ☑️FOLLOW👉🏽 @gs_golden_supplement ⠀ ______________________________________________⠀ #instamentalhealth#positivevibes#instalove#mentalrecovery#goldensupplement#mentalhealth#psychology#mentalillness#panicattacks#suicideprevention#nootropic#anxietydisorder#recovery#motivation#wellness#stopthestigma#endthestigma#loveyourself#anxiety#ptsd#suicideawareness#mentalhealthmatters
Earth Day! Great for Mother Nature and for our Mental Health. Research shows planting helps our mental health by giving us responsibility, reminding us of our nurturing ability while keeping us connected to other living things. It provides an opportunity to relax and helps release serotonin and norepinephrine ( our feel good hormones) so we can let anger go. It reminds us of the cycle of life helping deal with life’s most stressful anxieties. And above all it reminds us to live in the present moment. Enjoy your harvest, trees and flowers and give back to the Earth that gives so much to us! Gardening lets us feel in control so hop to it Easter bunny earth day friends! Give back and make life sustainable. #purebeautywithbrittany#livesimple#gardenformentalhealth#earthday2019#sustainability#familydaysgardening#startmentalhealthyoung#suicideprevention
If you don’t like it unfollow. At the end of the day we all bleed the same blood, and we all have a heart that pumps the same blood. It doesn’t matter if you’re white, black, gay, straight and anything or everything in between. You are human, as am I, and we all deserve to be treated with love and respect. #suicideawareness#lgbtq#stopthehate#suicideprevention
