My Monthly Bullet Journal Spread Set-up

A page showing how I set up my bullet journal up in March - My Monthly Bullet Journal Set-Up - Mrs H's favourite things

I’ve been using a bullet journal for the past few years. A bullet journal helps my mental health as it allows me to be more organised, which combats my anxiety. But it also provides me with a creative outlet. (I don’t think of myself as very creative but my bullet journal lets that small side of me out). I thought I would share with you my monthly spread for March 2019. Although this is the way I set my bullet…

7 Things Depression Has Taught Me

A photograph of a Mum with depression cuddling her five-year-old daughter - 7 Things Depression Has Taught Me - Mrs H's favourite things

I’ve suffered from depression for 20 years now. During that time I have changed as a person. I am not the same girl that was diagnosed with depression in 1999. I have had to change to get better. To fight the devil that is depression. The stalker that is poor mental health. But I never expected that suffering from depression would teach me some valuable lessons about life. Lessons that I’m not always brilliant at following. Yet when I do…

I often believe that people who suffer with mental health problems get a raw deal. They are considered sad individuals who can barely crack a smile. That they aren’t able to feel happiness or joy. This is untrue. I can feel great happiness and joy. I can feel the excited happiness that comes when you dance around the room to your favourite song. The happiness that comes from chatting with your best friends. I know the contented happiness that comes…
