Now to see us out on my guest post week, I have an absolutely wonderful post from Kirsty Brown about the 10 books that ever young woman should read. Shamefully, I haven’t actually read any of these but they are most definitely on my radar now and a few trips to the library is definitely in order. Have you read any of these? Have a read of Kirsty’s brilliant post and thank you for joining me on guest post week, whilst I’ve been away. And thank you to the amazing guest posters, too!
I’m loving my week of guest posts so far because I love the range of topics we’re covering! We’ve done Disney and what it’s like being a Disney cast member and how to take care of your dogs in the summer heat and today we’re going to be talking about something a little more serious: depression. I have a really great post from Courtney from Courton Blue today so enjoy and be supportive!
Hi all! Continuing with my week of guest posts whilst I’m away on my holidays, today I have a post from Ashley at Blonde Fashion Happy with some tips and tricks on keeping your doggies cool when summer arrives! It’s super important to keep your dogs healthy when it’s super hot out and some of these are really great ideas!
How you liking my guest post week so far? Yes? Good! Me too! I have another post for you today from Zara all about how she cleared up her skin after breaking out with the worst acne she’d ever had. Feeling like you can relate? Yep, me too. My skin is awful right now due to hormones so I’ll definitely be taking some advice from Zara’s post.
Good morning everyone! This week on my blog, I will be bringing you a different guest post every day from Monday until Friday from a different blogger as I am away on my holidays this week! I’ll be chug, chug, chugging along on a boat along the Norfolk Broads, without a laptop or much WiFi for that matter so I thought it would be a perfect chance to get some guests on and talk about different topics than what I usually write about. So… let’s kick things off shall we and first up we have a wonderful post from Mairéad, all about her time working in Disney World!
As I’m walking through the crowd, I can feel my body starting to react; my heart is in my throat, my skin is crawling, my mouth is dry, my head is spinning and all I can think about is running, running, running away. But I can’t. I’m frozen to my place, terrified that one wrong move will draw attention. My eyes are darting from here to there, looking for threats. There are people all around me; laughing, talking, looking. Rationally, I know my reaction doesn’t make any sense. Rationally, I know there aren’t any real threats around. Rationally, I know it’s my anxiety acting up. Rationally, I know I need to calm down. But I also know that rationality and logic are useless against it. They do their best, but they never win. I put my hands in my pockets. With my shoulders bent and my head low, I walk away. I don’t look back.
Young Adult novels aren’t just popular with teenagers, but with adults and pre-teens alike. For many younger readers, books are one way they learn about life – about relationships, sex, family issues, sexuality and gender… And with YA novels covering such a broad range of topics (including a wide variety of genres, protagonists, and diverse characters), why shouldn’t mental health make the list of Things That Should Be Included in YA?
When I look around now, all I see are people with their heads down, necks strained and fingers and thumbs flickering constantly.
I have never been a huge fan of therapy. Please do not be offended but I never really understood how I could benefit from telling a complete stranger about my problems while lying on his couch, that is what friends are for right?
Depression touches 350 million of the world population but somehow is still a taboo. Like any other mental illness, there are a lot of stigma attached to it. Now it’s time to debunk them.
