A delayed Mental Health Monday is better than no MHM right?
Hello everyone and welcome to Mental Health Monday! This is a weekly installment that I’m running in hopes that it catches on and becomes a series that others feel comfortable enough to participate in and bring more attention to dealing with mental health. If you’re curious and would like to participate head over to Mental Health Mondays guideline page.
Sorry about the delayed post this week, I had a filling fall out of my tooth causing me extreme pain and discomfort and I’ve been rather hopped up on pain meds.
Honestly I’m a little unsure about what to write about this week, Other than the tooth pain I actually had a good week, The first genuinely good week I’ve had in a long while. I reestablished connections with someone who I haven’t had contact with in quite a while, I found an amazing new band to add to my ever growing collection of music and I manged to work up the effort to clean my computer desk. It’s been a week of small battles and victories rather than all out war, And sometimes in the journey of dealing with your own mind that can be a really refreshing thing, Even though it wasn’t an entirely positive week and I still had my moments of weakness and self doubt they seemed relatively minor compared to the positives of the week. The issues didn’t go away or even particularly get better, It was still a battle the whole way through the week, But it felt like the weight I was carrying was ever so slightly lighter this week.
I’ve never been able to get into journaling. I just never found myself falling into the habit, Mostly because I just never found myself to have much to say on a daily basis, But this format of MHM has been really nice. Once a week allows for me to have some time to reflect and collaborate my own thoughts and actually give me enough to write rather than single line remarks like “Today sucked” which isn’t exactly helpful in the scope of things. So I ask you readers, Do you find journaling to be a benefit? Do you do it daily? Weekly? Monthly? or maybe you’ve never tried but i’m curious to hear some responses so let me know in the comments section!
