When I was a young adult and I looked at people in their 30s or 40s, I always assumed that they had this game of life sussed. They were mature adults. Surely, they knew exactly what they were doing. Surely, they’d learnt the lessons of how to live a happy and contented life. I looked at them in awe and believed they all lived perfect lives. They seemed filled with wisdom and knowledge and a confidence I couldn’t imagine possessing.…

This is a collaborative post.  When depressed, it can be very tough to try and see the good in every day. In fact, it can sometimes be nigh-on impossible. This might be for many reasons. Of course, the chemical imbalance of your brain can contribute to this, and in those scenarios medication and therapy can be profound helping measures. This article will not focus on the science of this, or recommend that you follow it. Health matters of this serious…

This is a collaborative post. It’s safe to say that we don’t always feel at our best. As much as we’d all love to be able to look and feel incredible at all times, that very rarely happens. In fact, you’re more likely to find that you feel down more than you do good. Because the world can be an incredibly pressurized place. It’s easier than ever to be hard on yourself, and this is when things like depression can…

Living With Depression: A Nervous Breakdown & A Diagnosis

A photograph of a woman with brown hair, wearing a stripey t-shirt and bright red lipstick - Living With Depression: Having A Nervous Breakdown & Being Given A Diagnosis - Mrs H's favourite things

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. It’s a week that is hugely important, as we still have such a long way to go before we’ve broken the stigma that surrounds mental ill health. Last year, I wrote a post for Mental Health Awareness Week claiming that I was going to start sharing my story of living with depression, beginning with my nervous breakdown and diagnosis. Yet, these posts never materialised. Writing your own tale of living with depression is…

This is the thirteenth Our Weekend Happy post that I’ve written for this blog. I missed writing last week’s post, which wasn’t great. But in the end, it worked out quite well as we’ve just had quite a rubbish weekend. Mr H spent most of the weekend ill in bed and I had a terrible migraine. The poor children must have been so bored. But they were as good as gold and happily played on their own for most of the weekend.…

This is a collaborative post. A family holiday is something that everyone looks forward to and they’re very important as they provide an escape from daily life and allow you to recharge your batteries. Even simply booking a holiday can do a world of good and give you an extra spring in your step all the way through to the vacation itself. The Importance of Having a Family Holiday to Look Forward to Booking the Trip As soon as you have…

This is the twelfth Our Weekend Happy post that I’ve written for this blog. Last week’s post was filled with so many of my favourite things – a trip to the seaside and a visit from Auntie B. It was a lovely weekend. This week, I’ve decided to write a slightly different Our Weekend Happy post. (I do like to mix things up every now and then). Inspired by my lovely friend Kaye who blogs at Hello Archie, I’ve decided that this…

This is the eleventh Our Weekend Happy post that I’ve written for this blog. Last week’s post was a little different, as it was a review of our day out at the new Animals of the Ice Age exhibit at Howletts. This post also included my first day in the life video. I’d always assumed that I wasn’t creative enough to produce a Day in the Life video. But I’m really proud of this video. I would love it if you went…
