Wellness Wednesday…๐Ÿ’š



๐Ÿ’šTake Off The Mask ๐Ÿ‘บ

Stop hiding and pretending to be ok if you’re not! You are only hurting yourself, take the mask off.

๐Ÿ’šDecide What Matters and What Doesn’t

Please stop giving energy to people or things that drain your energy throughout the day, you are not a cell phone that can be charged instantly. Stress is a hell of a thing to get rid of, so don’t even bother

๐Ÿ’šPractice Patience

Now, this is a hard one but comes in handy when you feel like hitting a co-worker, fighting with your kids/ spouse, or even at a red light! Breath in and out…count 1,2,3! This melts the stress away just for a bit, gives you time to rethink going to jail๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ

๐Ÿ’šLet Go Of The Thoughts That Are Not Serving You

Everything that comes into your head doesnโ€™t need to be thought about! Let it go and focus on positivity, yes itโ€™s hard but try your best. This also soothes the stress in the moment and keeps you from getting all worked up over some stupid thought!

๐Ÿ’šStop Taking Things So Personally

Everything isn’t about you all the time, let others express their thoughts without you going into some rage like your being picked on. This causes your heart to race and you are probably overthinking the situation period…calm down sis!!!๐Ÿ–๐Ÿพ

๐Ÿ’šEmbrace Self Discipline

Ok chick, this is where self-talk comes in! Blowing off the handle at every little thing doesnโ€™t help you or the situation. Your voice will raise along with your blood pressure, which causes stress and strokes. Youโ€™re too beautiful to look and sound ugly…positive self-talk goes a long way suga๐Ÿ˜Š

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. Iโ€™m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future. Look forward to having you read my blog, ๐“ž๐“ต๐“ฒ๐“ฟ๐“ฒ๐“ช ๐“‘. ๐“ข๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“น๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ญ ๐Ÿ’‹
