overcoming anxiety outside of medication

overcoming anxiety outside of medication

Welcome back to another Wellness Wednesday, friends! It’s been a while since I’ve talked about mental health but it’s been on my mind quite a bit lately. For once in my life I feel like I have a pretty good handle on my anxiety, but it’s definitely taken a lot of discipline + self-evaluation to get to where I am. I take a mild medication for my mental health issues and I have no shame about that – however, I do think that it takes more than a couple pills a day to truly manage anxiety + depression.

my motivational playlist

It’s Friday, folks, and it’s already spring break season! For me (even though I’m not a student anymore) this time of year tends to be a reality check when it comes to my health – am I where I wanted to be? Have I been as disciplined as I should have been? Regardless of the answer, I try not to beat myself up. Instead, I use it as an opportunity to learn what has or hasn’t worked for me and what I can fix moving forward.

When it comes to my workouts, having a motivational playlist is a must. I feel like it’s no shocker that a playlist can really make or break your workout – for me, having a playlist that excites + pumps me up increases the chances that I’m going to follow through with it, so I wanted to share my current workout playlist!

bachelor live blog: colton, week 9

bachelor live blog: colton, week 9

Is this the most dramatic season of The Bachelor… ever? Quite possibly. I think it’s safe to officially say this season has been nothing short of a hot mess. Colton in and of himself if a very sweet, sensitive guy which already accounts for half the meltdowns lol. On top of that, these girls are quite possibly the most immature group I’ve seen (but what do I know, I don’t normally consistently watch The Bachelor) and are constantly causing problems. Drama definitely hit the fan last night, folks. Want to hear my thoughts? Keep on reading!

bachelor live blog: colton, week 8

Another week, another recap. This is certainly where the season starts to get unpredictable because you know we’re getting to the people where the most feelings are attached. Hometowns are always fun too because I personally love seeing the family’s genuine reactions to, “are you sure you really want to get married to a guy off a TV show?” lol But without futher ado, here’s week 8!
