Stress Free App - Review

Stress Free Thrive App – Review

When I was offered the opportunity to review the Stress Free application from Thrive free of charge for a month I jumped at the chance. I was asked for a review for their website in exchange for the free trial but because I have enjoyed using this app I thought I would also post about it on here. The ‘Stress Free’ app consists of several sections including breathing, meditation, deep muscle relaxation, self-hypnosis and the zen garden. I thought this would be beneficial for my mental health mainly my Anxiety by being able to relax myself. I also thought the deep muscle relaxation may be beneficial for the general pains I get in my limbs. Share This:

CBT for Anxiety - Part Two

CBT for Anxiety – Part Two

If you read my last blog post you would know I started CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) for my Anxiety and issues around this. If you haven’t you can catch up with that here. I have recently had my first proper session of CBT, the previous sessions were discussing how my Anxiety affects my daily life. Whereas I have now started the actual therapy. We started by discussing what the session would entail and how long I felt I would need for each section. Now i totally understand why this is done so that we don’t go over the time limit but at the beginning it’s hard to imagine how long each conversation will need. Share This:

CBT and Anxiety(1)

CBT for Anxiety

I have recently started Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for my Anxiety and other related Psychological issues. I was referred for this by my Psychologist who believes it will be a good form of treatment for me. I am having the therapy with somebody who I haven’t met before which I aren’t too impressed about. I like to stay with the people who already know me and I feel comfortable with as it always takes a while to settle down with somebody new. I totally understand though that he was probably the first available therapist and the man I already know may be booked up for longer. Share This:

The Fay Farm Healing CBD Hemp Lotion Review

Disclaimer: I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. The Fay Farm was started by Stacy Anderson & Michael Yocco and the products are handmade on Whidbey Island. They make natural products to improve several ailments. The Healing CBD Hemp Lotion is effective for nerve pain, Eczema, Psoriasis, Ringworm, Athletes Foot, bug bites, Anxiety as well as other similar conditions. I was interested in reviewing this product mainly for my severe Anxiety but I do also have skin issues sometimes which I thought this may also help with. Share This:

My favourite Instagram accounts

My favourite Instagram accounts

Instagram is my favourite form of social media. I love taking photos so this is a great place to share them. I also love looking at other people’s pictures too. A social media that is solely for pictures is obviously perfect for me. These are my favourite Instagram accounts that I enjoy keeping up to date with and why, in no particular order. Share This:

Why I started blogging and never stopped

I started blogging at the start of January 2015 because I was struggling with my mental health. I couldn’t cope with my depressive states, feeling suicidal and bottling it all up. Bottling it up because people don’t know how to react. When people know you have mental health issues they tip toe around you as if you’re a piece of fragile glass. Share This:
