☀️🌊SUMMER LOVIN☀️ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Okay it may not be sunny today, but manifesting is a thing right… It may be raining today, but theres hope shining through the grey clouds that summer’s on it’s way & we all know what that means! SMOOTHIE TIME🥤🍓🍒 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Smoothies are possible one of the best things man ever invented, chucking all these whole foods into a blender for a convenient and delicious breakfast, snack or whatever!! ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The best part is what you can HIDE in your smoothie, maybe for your toddler that refuses to eat 🙅♀️fruit and veg OR a loved one who doesn’t enjoy any unprocessed whole foods purely because they refuse to try it🤦♀️! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Heart Foundation recently released shocking statistics which found only 5% of Australian adults ate the required amount of fruit and vegetables daily!!!! 5%!!!! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There’s an easy way to fix this guys, SMOOTHIES! You can easily include 2 cups of spinach, 1/4 zucchini (3/5 serves of veg) & 1 banana (1/2 serves of fruit) in your daily smoothie! You’ve already hit over half of your required intake in a snack. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I promise, & @katecronan @timdelys can vouch for me here, you will NOT even taste the spinach and zucchini in there!! Thank me later 💁♀️❣️❣️ Image Source || via pinterest ✨✨✨
After suffering for about more than an year, I was diagnosed with clinical depression in 2015. Seeking professional help and the support of my family & friends helped me overcome the dark phase of my life. Contributing to the movement by @tlllfoundation @deepikapadukone , this post is to bring awareness about mental & emotional health issues and let you know that it is TREATABLE like any other physical ailment. Please see link in bio for my struggles with depression. #notashamed #depression #anxiety #survivor #conqueror #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthawarenessweek

This goes for not only anxiety but every other mental illness out there. Remember this today, tomorrow, and always. Your mental health does not own you, it does not define you, and it certainly shouldn’t control every aspect of your life. ♥️ . . . . . . . . . . flove #selfcare #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #awareness #recovery #anxiety #panic #reminder #mentalhealthreminder #yeg #edmonton #yegmentalhealth #yegmentalhealthawareness #yeglocal #yeggers #yegfit #yeglife #health #mind #macewan #macewanwellness #uofa #naitwellness #mentalhealthawarenessweek #heal #macewanu
In honor of #mentalhealthawarenessweek and in effort to break the stigma surrounding mental health, I thought I’d share some of my journey as of late. • Battling postpartum psychosis 8 months into this motherhood gig was one thing, but my mental health battles didn’t stop there. I spent a major portion of the last few months in and out of hospitals, driven to unearth the root cause(s) of scary manic episodes. I have been sharing my story with doctors, social workers, therapists, patients, friends and family, and it’s been met with a lot of confusion, leaving many scratching their heads and some just wanting to squeeze me and hold me tight. • I am coming off the heels of my second hospitalization and a full psychiatric assessment. I have been poked and prodded to tears, stripped of my shoelaces, my dignity and my pride. • I am still wrapping my head around the diagnosis I finally received. While I feel grateful to have a diagnosis and a treatment plan in place, there is also a certain grieving process I’ve had to embrace along with it. • A few days ago Marshall and I were listening to Elie Wiesel on @oprahsupersoul and we were head nodding in sync when he said, “answers come and go, but questions remain.” • It’s easy, after receiving a diagnosis, to think “OH! This is the root of my suffering. This is THE reason. I get it now. I’m cured.” • In my spiritual journey, I pray never to be cured, but rather to remain mindful, open and honest about what obstacles impede a righteous path with my Higher Power, and willing to take action whenever necessary. I understand one diagnosis is not my answer or my why. My Bipolar Disorder is certainly not THE cause of my pain and suffering. It is simply a segment of the bigger story of my life, a tool to help aid recovery and forward motion. And my sharing this with you is certainly not a plea for pity. Nope, I’m not about that. It is, however, a plea to break down the walls around conversation about mental health, to spread more awareness, love and compassion to all. And please know, if you are suffering from any kind of illness, whether in your brain or somewhere else in the body, you’ve got this, & you are not alone.
