Feeling depressed? How often do you turn off screens, sit in a quiet place and just be, or read, or daydream? How often do you take a day off from exercise? Do you follow a meal plan that makes sure you’re eating good sources of carbohydrates? Stress might be causing that depression. (Check out the book ROAR by @drstacysims ! I’m learning so much from her!) Not sure what to do? DM me and I’ll send you a list of some healthy carb options and ideas for working them into a meal plan. I’m working to de-stress my body from the inside out, and I’m happy to share what I’m doing if it helps you too!

‘Tis the season friends! I’ve got a sick tiny human at home, strange things breaking around my house, lots of freelance bits, a website revamp, missing my grandma/anniversary of her passing, and it’s retail season so I am 1)spending money and 2)hauling ass at work because retail season applies to websites, too! Honored to have friends who love me, who will reach out when I’m low, and coworkers who work just as hard as I do. I am excited to spend time with everyone at upcoming parties and events—squeeze your pals hard when ya can. 🎶🎵🎶 I made a playlist that I’ve been listening to while I keep my head down ‘n grinding at my job that is meant to be more upbeat & fun! The link is in my bio and you are NOT allowed to make fun of me. Open minds / open hearts fellow mutants, love u! 🎄😈 #krampus #seasonaldepression #deckaho

The holidays aren't always as jolly as the movies make them seem. They tend to take a toll on everyone, whether it's stretching ourselves too thin financially, always being on the go or forgetting to take time for some much needed self care. ↠ Be realistic when it comes to expectations of yourself and others, don’t forget to take time for yourself, and ask for help if needed. ↠ For more ways to survive the holidays, check out our blog.

Oh Baby! High tide got me wallowing in these sad emotions. Missing niggas that are long gone. Missing love I never had. Wishing I could pick up every plank and go back to being the lil tree I once was. Standing tall throwing shade. Talking shit about that broke ass redwood that kept trying to give me his number..... but here I am, a summer bitch in the off season. Just trying not to drown. Lol I can’t down, I’m a Bridge #Sostable #sowet #bridge #hightide #thot #datbitch #summer #seasonaldepression #offseason #Freaknasty 💦

Let’s do it together! #whimsicalharmony #tuesday #ohio #ohioweather #seasonaldepression #youchoosehowyoureact

The National Alliance Of Mental Health recommends sticking to your routine as much as possible, even with the influx of invitations and social events around the holidays. The more you stick to your routine, even if it’s just for one part of your day, the more you will feel in control and the less anxious you will get once things start to disrupt it. ⠀ ⠀ If you're in distress this Christmas season and want someone to talk to, please contact #MagnoliaMentalHealth today! ⠀ ⠀ #MentalHealth #MagnoliaMHealth #MentalHealth #LGBTQ #BlackLivesMatter #Psychotherapy #Therapy #DMV #BlackHealth #Dating #SelfLove #SelfCare #Love #Acceptance #WashingtonDC #LGBT #GayTherapy #BlackWomen #Black #BlackGirlMagic #Christmas #Holidays #Winter #SeasonalDepression

I must tell you, whether it’s around the holidays or year round this is what anxiety can look like. 😳 After 14 years in mental health I have to say that based on my experience we are all struggling with anxiety. 😱 We are always comparing, wondering if we are good enough, and suppressing our voices. 🤐 We are never alone. You may be surprised if you expressed how you really feel, how someone else can sigh and say me too. 🤜🤛 There is no embarrassment in having these feelings, but they are just emotions. You are not your emotions. It is just energy in motion needing to be released (expressed) out. ✍️ Also, everyone else is just as anxious at being “perfect” too, so what you see on insta or fb or media, this is only surface level. 👀 Everyone struggles and we could benefit from opening up and reaching out. Vulnerability is in! ❤️🤜🤛 • • • 🎨 @thepsychologymum ✍️ @inspiring_resilience #anxiety #perfection #emotions #vulnerability #psychotherapist #seasonaldepression #holidays #expressyourself #neveralone #fakemedia #openup

Not everyone feels joy this month. Look out for people that need to hit the pause button.

Did you know that the cycles of light affect female fertility?! According to Dr. Eden Fromberg and Naomi Wolf (in their new book Vagina: A New Biography): “women used to menstruate during the new moon (when it’s dark at night) and ovulate during a full moon (when it’s light). . “Now, in a world full of artificial lighting and bright screens, women are not as in tune with the connection between their biology and nature.” . Who of you have cycles aligned with the moon? We’re curious if you are also sensitive to light, or if you live closely synced to the natural light patterns around you? . . Graphic design for My Sex Bio by @elham_hemmmat . . Here at My Sexual Biography we believe sex education and empowerment is a vehicle for peace. Use our resources and research focused around our monthly topics and own your sexual biography. This December we’re talking about SEX AND LIGHT. Sensory sex and sensory play, how light creates mood/setting, the changing of energy, seasonal depression and sex, the natural cycles of the planet and our bodies, and so much more. #mysexbio #sexjournal #sexualbiography #sexed #sexeducation #education #healtheducation #healthy #sexlight #sad #seasonaldepression #mindfulness #sexlife #sexdrive #selfcare #sextherapist #sexpositive #sexpositivity #cycles #periodpositive #menstruation #mothernature

CONFESSION TIME Stoked to be joining @ashley.beaudin along with her team at @imperfectbosses to bring authenticity to a time of year we all see picture perfect photos. To be honest- I’m not the biggest of this time of year. Maybe it’s my history of struggling with seasonal affective disorder, or the fact that I have a very very small family. I don’t love giving or receiving gifts and the stress and rush that it brings. I don’t love crowds or lines and as a sober person, I don’t love all the drinking that comes with this time of year. It can be a triggering time for those of us with mental health issues. This, every few years my family has a tradition of flat out skipping the holidays. Full disclosure we typically go away which I am aware I’m incredibly privileged to be able to do. So this year my husband and I will be going away for our honeymoon during the holidays. No tree, no decorating, no gifts, no holiday cards and no hoopla. You have permission to create whatever kind of holiday you want! Your family may not understand you setting boundaries AND that doesn’t mean you do not have permission to take care of yourself this season. I want to hear from you! Share with me below about your #theimperfectholiday or tag me in a post or a story! #holidayseason #holidays #holidayshopping #boundaries #setboundaries #healthyboundaries #seasonaldepression #seasonalaffectivedisorder #anxietyrelief #anxiety #depression #spirituality #selfhealers

#AWORD from @therapyforwomen ・・・ BOUNDARIES WITH YOURSELF Rather than creating “rules” for yourself, id recommend creating boundaries. Boundaries can be molded, shifted and moved. Some are flexible, some are rigid. These are a list of some boundaries with yourself you want to put in place. Please remember everyone is different. You will also need different things at different parts of your life and depending what’s going on. For example, I have a very strict boundary that I don’t sleep with my phone in my room. It’s one of the best things I do for my mental health. However I was at the beach with friends this weekend and needed a way to wake up so I made an exception and had no shame or guilt around it. Our lives are meant to shift and change as will our boundaries! Are you going to implement any of these? What boundaries do you have with yourself? #boundaries #healthyboundaries #communication #communicationiskey #communicationskills #personalboundaries #dbt #dbtskills #selfcarehacks #selfcarethreads #selfcare #selfcarefirst #setboundaries #seasonaldepression #seasonalaffectivedisorder #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #settingboundaries #boundariesarehealthy #boundary

It’s supposed to snow tonight in DC. I miss summer. But I think it’s important not to get wrapped up in what’s not here as we wrap 2019. My goal is to shift my focus to the blessings I’m experiencing now, and what’s to come. When it’s summer we want cooler weather. When it’s winter, we miss the warmth. There’s a lesson there that’ll preach. It’s that instead of chasing a satisfaction we’re never going to have, enjoy what is present. Live/love in that current season, whether you miss other seasons or not, because one thing will always be true of weather and life: the seasons will always change. • 📸: @hh.aann / @_hantou 📍: @blagdenalley#ShotOniPhone #mobileportrait #todayatapple #seasonaldepression #blackmen #beardgang #beardsgonbeard #blagdenalleydc #blagdenalley
