It is OK to feel these things, they are a product of our environment and how we process the world around us, but speaking from my own experiences nothing positive will come from clinging to them.
Depression and anxiety don't have to be a lifestyle. They are moods that can be changed. It takes conscious effort and willpower but they can be overcome.
You are not defined by your disorder. We can deal with any situation if we put our mind to it.
Live your best life because no one else is going to live it for you. Don't care too deeply of what others think as they are not the drivers of your life. Be bold, be courageous, speak out more and laugh louder. #thoughtoftheday
Ive been playing the #minsgame with a few of my friends and family! It may seem like just decluttering (which in itself is purposeful) but it actually is more that that. Did you know we are able to make 150-200 good decisions per day. We make roughly 35000 decisions each day! So you think... just by minimising our wardrobe to a few outfits we love Etc can make space for other good decisions such as going to the gym after a long day. #thoughtoftheday#decisionfatigue (photo of my lovely friend and daughter after decluttering 350 items this weekend... and... still smiling @emmadaviesdubai )
How I became an optimist... In 2016, I read every issue of Nature science journal from cover to cover. Medicine, physics, biology, genetics, you name it—every single day I was fascinated by new scientific discoveries. Something interesting happened to my brain. See, there's so much going on in the world all the time. Some good, some bad. Nobody can predict the future, and nobody truly KNOWS where we are going. So, how you deal with the unknown is a matter of mindset, and mindset has a lot to do with perspective; what you pay attention to. Are you consuming more discoveries or tragedies? I believe there's a sweet spot in between for everybody, where you are aware of and acknowledge the problems but are not overwhelmed by them. It's a state of mind where you recognize that things change, and have the urge to act. To me, optimism is a decision to work every day towards that perspective, that sweet spot.
