Here to break the taboo around mental health issues.
Be kind to yourself
Hi there! Welcome to my blog. Nice to meet you. I am Grace and I am a big Running Enthusiast. I have been diagnosed with Complex PTSD, but running helps to reduce the symptoms of my PTSD a lot. I would love to tell you my story. So please, let me take you on my journey to find balance, self-love and mental health.
1 in 5 people will personally experience a mental health problem or illness. Depression affects people of all ages, education, income levels, and cultures. We don't like to talk about it. Maybe because we are ashamed of it. It makes us extremely vulnerable. But talking about it helps, exercising helps. So why don't we just do that?

FOLLOW YOUR HEART
Work with a Therapist
If trauma, toxic relationships, mental illness, or negative beliefs are holding you back from having a positive state of mind, working with a therapist might be especially helpful. Consult your doctor for this.
Start with Meditation
This can be strange and uncomfortable in the beginning. But give it some time. Let YouTube or other meditation apps help you. A habit of daily meditation gives you the feeling of living with the wind in your sails. Everything runs smoother, things take less effort. Good stuff!
Move that Butt
In its broadest sense. Discover what works for you. Swimming, walking, running, kickboxing, cycling, walking, crawling, anything! Preferably outside. I'm not even going to tell you about the positive effects. You will notice it soon enough!
