#MondayMotivation: Words on Recovery

#MondayMotivation
WORDS ON RECOVERY 
-Recovery is turning mountains into hills.
-Recovery is never giving up.
-Recovery, where anything can happen.
-Recovery is life taking on new meaning.
-Recovery is improving myself in life and staying healthy. You can shine no matter what you are made of.
-Recovery is the part of life that leads to better things.
What small steps are you going to take today towards recovery? Whatever these might be, be compassionate to yourself, speak to yurself gently and with patience and above all, remember, you are doing the very best that you can at the moment with what you have, at the stage you are. Keep going, you're going great. All the best, Alexandra

HEY, GUYS! YOUR VOICE COUNTS TOO!: Male Mental Health

As we mentioned earlier on the week, it's Men's Health Week #MensHealthWeek this week, and that includes mental health too. 

And guess what? Anyone identifying as male also have mental health too! We often forget about this and many men experience unhelpful and exasperating comments such as 'Boys don't cry', 'Man up', Come on, be the big man' and 'why would you feel like that...don't be a girl!'

Argggh! Why is is OK for females to talk about how they feel, but not men? Well, actually IT IS OK for boys and men to talk about how they feel. It's ok for ANYONE to talk about how they feel. Actually, it's not just OK, we want to hear what things are like for you. You ARE IMPORTANT and what you are experiencing IS IMPORTANT!

Talking and sharing your thoughts and feelings can not only help you, it can help other guys start taking and having conversations too. The more guys that…
It's #MenlHealthWeek and here's this week's #MondayMotivattion too.
This is Men's Health Week, and health includes mental health.
This week's #MondayMotivation is a poem by F.Scott Fitzgerald (one of my favourite authors).
For what it's worth it's never too late to start over again, no matter what age you are, whether you identify as male, female or neither. Many of our clients have 'started again' in their 40s, 50s and 60s and while change was a bit scary and daunting for them, undoubtedly, their lives improved.
Many have, through therapy, explored and discovered who they really are and identified those parts of themselves and their identity that may have remained hidden or out of sight, for many reasons, They have learned how to acknowledge who they are and begin to express it.
Hope you like the poem below and that you all get something from it. Stay safe, take care and hope you have a good day, Alexandra
