Are you overwhelmed and uncertain?
This is not a political post! But I was drawn thinking about the ‘snap election’ that was announced this week and how sometimes we all just make a quick decision because we feel overwhelmed and pressured and anxious.
It’s been a week of talking about mental health with the Prince Harry’s interview coverage (are we really surprised the poor chap was traumatised?) and the discussions in the media about what Prince William and Catherine are doing to help raise the profile and break down some barriers around the stigma of depression and anxiety.
There must be something in the air as my own epiphany a few weeks ago was around just this topic and since then I have felt nothing short of compelled to plan how I can help others to feel better, feel more in control and less overwhelmed by the normality but enormity of life.
It’s become such a presence in my life since ‘the moment’ that I now have a 10 year plan, a 3 year goal and a pretty nifty strategy for the next 12 months to move this forwards. The plans are massive (why not right? You may as well aim high and not quite make it, rather than aim low and wished you’d tried a bit more) and compelling. I’ve got to the point where I feel I will be letting people down if I don’t make this happen. So watch this space!
So back to Theresa May and her snappiness this week!
Stress can get wrapped up in all manner of phrases, such as depression, anxiety, overly-emotional, lethargic, moody, snappy, apathy…
Treating these different conditions needs more than one approach. Some require nutritional supplementation, some require reductions of certain foods and some require moderate to vigorous exercise whereas others require mild exercise.
Getting it wrong can keep you in cycle of misery, getting it right can empower you to take control back.
To help you with this I am running a series of monthly events to share this information and the first one is on Wednesday 17 May at Wokingham Cricket Club between 19:30 – 21:00.
If it’s something for you then please book a place, if it’s something you think a friend would appreciate please forward this email to them.
And whilst we’re talking about snappy things, here’s a link to a quick frozen recipe that I’ve seen floating around the internet this week for ‘bark’. A frozen yoghurt dessert for those with a sweet tooth without too much damage!
Have a great week.
