How I'm Dealing With My Mental Health Right Now

A few weeks ago I wrote a post all about how I take care of my mental health in the colder months and when I wrote that post I said that I for once, wasn’t finding this time of year as difficult as I have done in the past. Granted, we are only just starting to get the cold weather so time will tell but something that I’ve not done in a while is done a general mental health update. For so long I believed mental health was something that was linear but it’s not at all and there are highs and lows and that’s ok, even though at the time it can feel devastating like you’ve lost all your progress it’s not the case.

The Beginners Guide To Dressing Practically

Dressing practically is something that might seem rather obvious, but as someone who wore a pleather jacket in the depths of winter for far too many years clearly, some of us put style over practicality. I know even when I was in my early twenties I truly believed that if I was to dress practically that would mean I would also lose all sense of personal style and that isn’t the case at all.
