3 mental health slip-ups that beat you into a crippled shell of yourself

You know that feeling?

Like you could cave in at any moment.

Feeling fearful and tired at the same time.

Consumed with the fear of failure but having no urge to be productive.

You want friends but at the same time you hate socializing. You want to be left alone but you can't bare feeling lonely.

You worry about everything but at the same time you care about nothing. Feeling everything at once, then feeling paralyzingly numb.

You want to scream. You want to cry.

But you know that if you don't hold an even keel, it's not just you that suffers if you can't keep it together.  . 

Your family, your kids and work colleagues will become victims too. 

This all leaves you wondering...

Will I ever be able to function like a normal person?  

Heart wrenching isn’t it? 

And unless you’ve experienced it before, you can’t understand how devastating this can be.

But will you permit me to be honest with you for a second?

The honest truth…

The real reason you are not coping well or functioning effectively is this.

36 crazy good habits that (surprisingly) crank up your anxiety and depression

Do you recognize any of these habits in yourself? Could they be why  you keep relapsing?


Ever wished you could take a holiday from life?

A holiday that resets everything.

Because you know the only way you can go forward is to have some kind of reset button.

You can see what you are now. You can see what’s brought you here.

You've been through a lot in life, had a lot of bad times. And now you are battling anxiety and depression every single day.

But you can’t put back the clock.

You can’t go back and change what you've become.

You see, anxiety or depression on their own can be energy draining, but when they feed off each other, you simply lose the will to live. 

And it's worse, when you’ve had to fight these two demons every day for years, trying every medication and every therapy and nothing works.

I mean, how much pain can one person be expected to tolerate?

What is the point? What is the way out?

Are there any answers?

How to stop distressing memories and associated feelings in under 10 minutes

And a tip that can help you stop those distressing feelings and memories from coming back repeatedly with painful vengeance

Here's the huge problem,

Past painful and negative experiences can keep impacting our lives and keep fuelling anxiety and depression for many years if we do nothing about them.​

Many people try harder to bury or forget past distressing thoughts and memories by keeping busy or employing various forms of distractions. 

But this tends to leave them feeling more exhausted, not able to relax and unable to enjoy the good things they have in their lives right now. Like enjoying spending time with their kids and loved ones.

Some people try harder to block away the distressing memories by using alcohol or illicit drugs. 

And whilst this can be powerful in creating relief from the thoughts. The relief is only temporary at best, and this approach will keep  you needing to rely on illicit substances, robbing you of ever being able to develop your own emotional coping skills.

Lastly, other people try harder to stop the distressing thoughts by bullying or being harsh and rude to themselves. Sadly this often leads to more frustration, causing people to dislike themselves for not being able to stop. 

The end result of all these tactics is an increase in the frequency of painful thoughts and an increase in the intensity distressing feelings one is constantly experiencing. At the extreme, you find that you can stop yourself from falling apart so frequently.

But it doesn't have to be that way. That’s why, in this real life video I will be sharing with you later in this article, I want to show you how one of my former clients used my bonjela technique to stop two distressing thoughts and the painful feelings generated that made her feel sick to the pit of her stomach. 

And she was able to achieve this within 10 minutes.

Why Keeping Quiet About Your Mental Health Struggles is Dangerous

Sickly Stigma

Ever had to take a lot of sick days off work?Maybe due to anxiety, stress or feeling depressed.

Or maybe due to the impact of a physical health condition like diabetes, fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue.

Most days, when you do go into work, you're just forcing yourself to go in. Even though you know you don't feel well enough.

And whilst at work...

You do your best to keep up with everyone's expectations. 

But, despite all your hard work, it's clear that no one appreciates that you are working twice as hard as everyone else because of your difficulties.

This is a real problem that can get exhausting and soul destroying. 

It makes you feel like there's no point carrying on.

But you can't just drop your Job. Cause who'd pay the bills?

Do you tell your boss that you are struggling, or do you just keep pretending that you are okay? 

Should you open up to let people know what you are going through?

Or do you just allow people to BULLY you into pushing yourself harder just to avoid harassment, discrimination and negative judgements?

Granted, this is ONE Hell OF A DECISION TO MAKE!

But, before you make that decision, here's a crucial point to consider.
