My way of dealing with things I can’t currently process, Photography! Stop by, Check out some photos I’ve taken and enjoy this week’s Mental Health Monday!
Hello everyone and welcome to Mental Health Monday! This is a weekly installment that I hope catches on and becomes a series that others feel comfortable enough to participate. And hopefully, 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.
Honestly, I’m a little unsure about what to write for this week’s MHM, It’s not like I don’t have anything to write about. A lot actually happened this week that ties into my mental health but I just can’t seem to get anything out for you readers in a way that would be coherent. So I guess I will just write about one of my personal coping techniques, Photography.
While I haven’t been into photography all that long but it sure got into me! Whenever I have a bad day, Specifically when I have a day where I’m finding it hard to process things I usually try and go on a photo walk somewhere. Photography forces me to pay attention to my surroundings much more actively, looking for that interesting photo or person. Photography allows me to take a mental break and just not have to think about my life for a little while. Actually, I find I take better photos when shooting while I’m out on a mental health photo walk rather than when the mood strikes.
I really don’t have much else to add for this week’s MHM sadly so I will just leave everyone with a few images I’ve taken over the past year or two on various photo walks. I hope you enjoy.
