Does Losing Weight Help Mental Health?

Today for mental health week 2018 I’m talking about mental health and weight loss. I want to know if by losing weight my mental health as actually improved. Of course I’m no scientist and I don’t have a huge list of facts and research papers but I’m going to tell you about my experience! I’ve seen loads of people talking about how mental health can totally be influenced by weight loss, however most of them are just trying to peddle you weight loss pills or some sort of weight loss program.

I started losing weight at the start of the year when I hit a certain amount and decided it had gone too far! I…

Starting A Bucket List For Your Mental Health Wellness!

Mental health can be rather overwhelming, which is why it’s a great idea to start your very own bucket list! A bucket list helps you to identify the great parts in your life and really focus on them. I’ve always been tempted to start a bucket list although never got around doing one. Now that it’s mental health week 2018 I’ve decided that it’s time to knuckle down and get one sorted. First I needed to have a long think and set a couple of ground rules as you can see below. Don’t add something you’re never, ever going to be able to afford! Make sure it’s not illegible. Don’t be unrealistic, I’m never going to climb Everest…. Don’t add too much and get down if you don’t achieve them all. Four rules, nothing major but still good tips to follow! I started to begin my bucket list at one…

I’m always on the look out for new ways that I can cope with my mental health, as it’s mental health week 2018 I thought I’d check out some new ways and refresh my brain a little.

I was contacted by the kind folks that run the Budhdhify app, they wanted to see if I wanted to review a new way that people can use to keep their mental health under control, of course I said yes! You can get the app on any phone, as long as it can download apps that is! It’s currently £4.99 although the price may change and that’s not something I can control or know about; so let’s…
