"The monsters in my head are scared of love..."


The photo on the left I took early in the morning weeks ago. I've also put off this blog.

I knew I was dealing with a lot of things that have been dishing out anxiety and some depression. It's an awful combination. I started this blog to write about my life totally unfiltered and to give advice.

Because honestly, everyone has shitty days. Even the greatest people who you think have their life together. We all have things that happen in our lives that totally crush us.

Now what you do with that is totally up to you. 

We can lay around the house, stressing and crying.

Or we can take an active role in out own mental health and try to do things that bring us joy. 


Most importantly one person shouldn't be the reason for your happiness.


CHUNKY LEMONADE'S GUIDE TO DEPRESSION FUNK!


Color! 

If you're one of those fuckers who are too cool to color I'm rolling my eyes so hard at you. I mean there's even a Supernatural coloring book--if those hotties don't get you off, I don't know what will.

Adult coloring books can be expensive, starting at $9! But the thrifty shoppers can find them at The Dollar Tree, Dollar General and so on. 

And don't sit there and tell me that's too expensive--at the very least pick up one of those jumbo Christmas coloring books and go the fuck to town. (I started playing Christmas music four days before Halloween, suck it.)



Music!

I love using Spotify to make playlists--I'm currently jamming to a "mega mix" of my favorite songs from the last few years. It's close to ten hours long. A side bonus thing--if you're weird like me strip down to those undies and dance while cleaning! 


Gym!

The guy I have a crush on said this to me once--at first I really didn't like what he said. Hell, I still don't care for the way he phrased it. However, some people self harm... But what if you took that pain and worked your ass off until you were exhausted?

The part that I feel iffy about is you need to know when to stop. There's a difference between being tired and ripping off your knee cap. I do find when I leave the gym I'm more relaxed and my mind stops racing for a few hours.



But there you have it, my top three activities that get me out of any mental funk! What's your three activities? 

Until Next Time,
Dev

  1. Thanks for posting! All three of these are great. It's nice to read about habits that help with anxiety and depression, and not always medicine.

    I'm glad you have outlets. You are loved.

    More and more people are using Spotify. I'll have to check it out.
