Did you know that 'Britons are now so addicted to mobile phones that they check them every 12 minutes'!

Mobile Usage

We spend so much time online, researching, looking for information, connecting, being social. Our phones are constantly with us no matter where we go or what we do. We always have access to connect.

According to MIND UK, 'the overall number of people with mental health problems has not changed significantly in recent years, but worries about things like money, jobs, and benefits can make it harder for people to cope. It appears that how people cope with mental health problems is getting worse as the number of people who self-harm or have suicidal thoughts is increasing.

Every seven years a survey is done in England to measure the number of people who have different types of mental health problems. 

It was last published in 2016 and reported these figures:

Generalized anxiety disorder 5.9 in 100 people

Depression 3.3 in 100 people

Phobias 2.4 in 100 people

OCD 1.3 in 100 people

Panic disorder 0.6 in 100 people

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) 4.4 in 100 people

Mixed anxiety and depression 7.8 in 100 people

Mental Health Statistics - MIND

We live fast lives, busy lives, stressful lives. We don't always have the time to see a professional or adhere to the certain stigma attached to mental health in general, especially in certain circles, religious groups, sexual orientations and such. We don't always want to reach out in person to someone due to our own anxieties and insecurities or a number of a hundred other reasons why we continue to suffer in silence when all we want to do is connect with someone who even briefly, understands where we are and can give us some guidance or empowerment with the courage to be able to move forward and to realize just how powerful we all can be. 

Yes, life can suck. But life can also be beautiful.

My idea is to empower people to embrace life in all its ups and downs. In the moment. Because the moment is all we really have. 

I've learned through my experiences that your state of mind and the way in which you approach what happens to you in any given moment is important. 

I still have to manage my anxiety, I've taught myself how to feel gratitude in everything that happens to me, as I know its all for a reason, and I am not taking from how difficult this has been and can be, but I am passionate about empowering others to understand that they are strong enough to cope and manage these things.
