15. CBD for Pets and How Does Supplementation Matter with Personal Travel

CBD pet supplements are becoming more popular. Following innovations like CBD oil for dogs and cats to reduce the pain of arthritic joints, more pet owners are taking notice. However, many owners are also confused about what is legal with CBD, especially when it comes to traveling with their pets on vacation either by road or air.

In this article, we cover CBD supplementation for pets and where it has a bearing on travel too.

What is CBD and Where Does it Come From?

CBD products are derived from the Cannabis plant, but this is where the connection becomes less clear for pet owners. Cannabis, the plant, has many strains. What’s common among them is around 80 chemical compounds.

One of these compounds is THC, which is the hallucinogen that creates the altered mental state that cannabis smokers commonly experience. However, when reducing the THC level down to around 0.3%, the effects are unnoticeable. At this extremely low level, it’s both barely detectable and a non-issue.  

CBD is created using Cannabidiol. This is another of the many compounds in the Cannabis plant. It’s not mind-altering at all. Because of this, it’s the compound that’s included in hemp products and the main component of all CBD products for both humans and pets.

What are CBD Products for Pets

CBD products for pets are formulated carefully to avoid any mixing of compounds. To qualify as CBD, only 0.3% of THC or less is permissible.

CBD has been found to have many benefits for dogs and cats. They tend to suffer less discomfort with arthritic joints, stay active for longer, are happier and have a healthier digestive system too. Anxiety and depression tend to be lower as well.

The important thing with pet supplements is their purity. Dogs, in particular, can have an adverse reaction to cannabis, so a clear distinction must be made in the mind of pet owners about the differences. CBD has been tested as suitable for them while non-CBD products are not.

A company like Canna Companion has been hard at work creating safe, tested formulations of CBD in their pet supplements for 16 years. It is owned by veterinarians who are clearly animal lovers and want as much reassurance as their customers’ do.

What About Traveling with CBD Supplements?

The laws are changing around CBD as states better understand the distinctions. However, when it comes to air travel and foreign travel, things are changing much slower. In fact, passengers are subject to greater restrictions and CBD products are still not permitted on flights.

For Americans who are traveling by road within the United States to their destination, they should be fine. However, getting a domestic (or an international) flight is not recommended when possessing CBD products. Different rules apply – however confusing that is for pet owners – as to what’s allowed or legal. If you’re traveling by air, leave your pet’s CBD supplements at home.

CBD products for pets provide a major improvement to pet care. Veterinarians are enthusiastic about how much they’re helping dogs and cats that otherwise were suffering unnecessarily. For pet wellness, CBD is the latest scientific innovation that’s worth learning more about.

Are there Alternatives to Tampons and Pads?

All women of child-bearing age have monthly periods. These are colloquially known as ‘the curse’ for a good reason. Dealing with periods is not always easy and if you have a heavy flow, you will likely spend a lot of your day worrying about embarrassing leaks. Then there is the financial and environmental cost of purchasing tampons and pads.

Tampons and pads, not to mention all the wrapping, account for around 200k tonnes of waste each year. Most of this ends up in landfill sites, although don’t be too surprised if you spot a used pad or tampon washed up on a beach nearby. Tampons are made from cotton, so they do eventually biodegrade, but it can take many months. Pads are mostly plastic, which means they don’t biodegrade so easily. Then there are all the toxic materials used to make tampons and pads. When you think about how many sanitary products the average women uses in her lifetime, the environmental cost is staggering.

Which brings us to the question: is there an alternative?

Menstrual Cups

Menstrual cups are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional pads and tampons. Menstrual cups are made from medical-grade silicone and are a reusable ‘cup’ for collecting menstrual blood. A menstrual cup is designed for insertion, just like a tampon. You can wear it for up to 12 hours at a time and if inserted correctly, a menstrual cup won’t leak.

The great thing about menstrual cups is they last for many years, so you will save a fortune on pads and tampons. They are ideal for active women, as they don’t leak, and you won’t have to stop and change it halfway through an exercise session.

There are several well-known brands of menstrual cup, so if you would like to know more, check out MenstrualCupReviews.net.

Menstrual Discs

Menstrual discs are similar to menstrual cups, but they are flatter in design. One of the main benefits of using a menstrual disc is that you can have sex while wearing one – without all the mess! The downside is that they are more difficult to remove – and liable to make a mess everywhere if you are not careful.

Sea Sponges

Sea sponges are 100% natural. They grow in the ocean, so are sustainable, eco-friendly, and safe to use. Sea sponges work well because they are highly absorbent. You can also snip them to fit if necessary. The downside is that they don’t last much longer than six months, so you will need to keep replacing them.


Period Panties

Nope, period panties are not those hideous grey cotton undies you wouldn’t normally be seen dead in. These are period-proof panties designed to cope with menstrual blood. They are washable, reusable, and attractive – which is always a bonus!

Period panties look just like regular underwear, but they can absorb up to four tampon’s worth of menstrual blood. Some designs are only suitable for light flow days or as a backup option, but other period panties can be worn on heavy flow days. You can also wear them with other menstrual products, such as menstrual cups, pads, and tampons if you are worried about leaks. Shop around for a pair of period panties that best fits your lifestyle.

Period Yoga Pants

If you can’t stand the idea of a VPL but your period is due, wear a pair of period yoga pants. Like period panties, period yoga pants have a highly absorbent gusset and are washable/reusable. They are also great if you have a yoga class booked when your period is due.

Coping in an Emergency

Periods don’t always arrive like clockwork. They sometimes arrive early, or more worryingly, late. If you are caught unawares, without any sanitary protection, and the vending machine is empty, don’t panic. The best option is to make a substitute sanitary pad using toilet tissue. It isn’t ideal, but it might buy you some time until you can pick up something more suitable from the local store.

Fold several sheets of toilet tissue into a thick pad. Insert in your underwear. The toilet tissue will absorb menstrual flow until you have time to swap it out for period panties, a menstrual cup, or your preferred choice of sanitary protection.

Don’t let a pesky period ruin your routine. Any of the above products will do the trick!


Changing The Future Of Your Health With Your Past Experiences

Our health isn’t hard to change, and drawing on our past experiences makes it so much easier to control. Whether we’re talking about mental health or physical health, there’s going to be experiences that you can draw from. Now, people become so fascinated with how their health can change, that it leads them down a career that is related to experiences that they once had. Take diabetes for example. A diagnosis can be terrible, but the experience gained is life changing. So much so, that it entices people to try out a career in medicine. So, you see, changing your health isn’t all about changing what you do with your body, it’s about changing who you are as a person, and who you want to become. That’s what we want to talk about today, so have a read on, and see if your past health experiences can change the future.

health-369782_1280Your Past Experiences

So, first of all, think about all of the past experiences that you’ve had. Have you perhaps been in hospital, had to take multiple visits to the doctors, or maybe your mental health wasn’t in the best shape. Now, think about how you felt during that time. Most of you will have felt stressed, low, and worried. It’s naturally to feel all of those things, but it is those that make us stronger for the future. The future of your health relies on these emotions, and recovery is often quicker the second time around because you’re more prepared to deal with what would be to come. It also makes you more aware of your health, and staying on top of it. It can also shape your future in terms of what you want out of life. If you went through a really low time, it’s so easy for you to be moved into a new direction with your career, as we spoke about in the opening paragraph. It also makes you so much more in tune with other people who are suffering, whether they’re going through the same thing that you did or not.

Where They Can Take You

If you have built up that much compassion for people going through a tough time, then think about whether you want to go down a career along the lines of health. If it was mental health that you struggled with, you could try getting an online masters in mental health counseling. Of course, you would need to do qualifications prior to this, but it will open so many doors for you. The future of your health will be completely transformed as you’ll have such a better understanding of how your own mind works, as well as other peoples.

How It Will Influence Your Health

All of the things we’ve mentioned above will influence your health in a positive manor. The better understanding of how your body and mind works will better prepare you help give your body what it needs. The more you can protect your own body through knowledge, the more likely you are to lead a healthy and normal lifestyle. If you were to go down the route of counselling or a health profession, you’d be changing the health of other people as well as your own, which is just so rewarding.

Why You Should Focus On Fitness (Beyond The Perfect Bod)

Fitness Workout Training Runner Run Exercise

You want people to turn their heads when they see you on the high street. You want your clothes to fit within an inch of their life. You want to be healthier and fitter than ever before.

Okay, so the usual reasons for focusing on fitness revolve around obtaining a perfect body. Let’s face it – the idea of hitting the beach with a toned stomach is appealing. Still, vanity alone isn’t the only reason to get fit. It’s a good start, but it’s only the beginning. You see, it’s easy to quit once the results don’t show within a short space of time.

No, what you need is something long-term that will drive you to stay fit forever. Maybe not forever, but you get the drift! So, here is a selection of reasons to focus on fitness that doesn’t include toned arms and a washboard stomach.

Enjoy, if that is physically possible!

Mental Fitness

Don’t forget that the mind is just as important as the body. In fact, a quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger on azquotes.com says that the brain is the key. And, that comes from a guy who made a living out of bulging pecs. If he understands the distinction, then you can too. Without a healthy mind, it isn’t possible to maintain a robust body. Even though you would love to, the negative thoughts in your brain prevent it from happening. By hitting the treadmill or retreating to the weights room, the negative attitude turns into a positive one. It’s down to a healthier chemical balance which is a result of increased hormone activity from exercise. Of course, there are alternative ways to blow off steam, which is essentially what happens in the gym. But, none are as accessible and wide-ranging as working out two to three times per week.

Heightened Concentration

Once the brain goes into training, the body begins to experience the benefits. For example, blowing off steam keeps cortisol levels low and stops the buildup of stress. Or, it boosts adrenaline and oestrogen and testosterone creation and keeps you feeling happy and content. But, probably the principal benefit of increased mental health is a sense of heightened concentration. When you can focus more, it affects nearly every aspect of your life. From work to relationships, it is easier to spot the small things and solve problems. Add the fact that you are no longer tired or stressed and the effect is multiplied by ten. For all you goldfish out there, this is reason enough.

Ability To Say Yes

How many times have you wanted to say yes but said no? For most people, it’s too many times to count and it’s because of their health and fitness. Say someone asks you on a hike, the odds are you will say no if you’re not in shape. Even if it’s only a short trip, people don’t like to go out of their physical comfort zone. So, instead of saying “Hell yes,” lots of us will respond with a “no thank you.” The effects of this are not just physical, but, yep you guessed it, mental. FOMO, or the Fear Of Missing Out, is real and occurs every time you decline an invite you would love to experience. Would you like to go on an adventure holiday? Or, would you like to backpack across a continent of your choosing? Believe it or not, the key to ticking your dreams of a bucket list is a foundation of mental and physical health. It’s only three letters, yet they’re hard to say when you’re unfit.

The Joy

Flogging your body up a mountain never seems like a good idea. Indeed, it’s one of the worst ideas in history when you’re halfway up and about to suffer a cardiac arrest. Then, something miraculous and inconceivable happens when you reach the summit. Yep, a smile stretches across your face. As weird as it sounds, it’s scientifically sound according to the boffins at webmd.com. To begin with, the majority of folks on this planet only do the things which they find enjoyable. Running a marathon might not appeal to you, but some people find it exhilarating. Plus, there are the hormonal changes which occur when a person exercises. Dailyburn.com points out that there is a flood of endorphins after the fact which leads to a “runner’s high.” If that isn’t enough, everyone experiences a feeling of achievement when they complete a difficult task.

Addiction Aid

When you hear the word, it makes you think of heroin and hardcore drugs, yet that isn’t the case. There is a good chance you know someone with an addiction. Does a family member or close friend smoke? Do you like an occasional crafty fag? If so, you are both hooked on nicotine and can’t go a day without a hit. Okay, the impact on lifestyle might not be as harsh, but cigarettes are just as dangerous from a physical perspective. The good news is that focusing on fitness can help get the monkey off your back as working out helps you to forget. When you don’t think about smoking, there is no reason to fill your lungs with tar. In conjunction with quitting alternatives, there is an excellent chance of stopping. Ecigwizard.com has an array or e-cigs to help cut down, and smokefree.gov has tips on nicotine replacement. Nhs.uk has the “Smokefree” app, too. Use them together and the odds of cutting down and quitting are much higher.

Feeling Of Accomplishment

Smokers, drinkers and junk food eaters want to cut down but never think it will happen. Then, the results come in thick and fast and they can’t believe their eyes. Aside from the obvious health benefits, there is a feeling of accomplishment which shouldn’t be understated. For one thing, cutting down on the things that harm your health is a big deal and deserves praise. Some might say you should never take health for granted, but don’t let them get you down! An achievement is an achievement regardless. Then, there is the knock-on effect in every other aspect of your life. Once you realise you can exorcise your demons, no task seems too daunting. After fighting an addiction and winning, the world is at your feet. And, you can say yes when someone asks you to explore it this time around.

Confidence Shot

We are all plagued by doubt and self-confidence issues. Whether it’s the way we look or out skill set, no one is cock-sure of themselves. They might appear that way, but they need a confidence boost as much as anyone. Quite simply, everyone needs to feel good about themselves and their body to function. Sometimes, a person will make eye contact with you on the tube, or your boss will praise you in front of the office. But, on the rare occasions it doesn’t happen, a contingency is essential. As you can see from the above, working out has a plethora of advantages which are easy to quantify. But, just looking at the results in a mirror is enough to encourage your best Ron Burgundy impression. “I look good. I mean, I look really good. Hey, everyone, come see how good I look!”

The Social Network

The truth is that working out is not about the exercise for many people. It’s a means to an end, but they hit the gym and pound the pavement for different reasons. The leading one is meeting up with friends and socialising. Human beings – that’s men and women – love to gossip and chew the fat. “What have you been doing?” “How’s work going?” “What’s new?” These aren’t questions you only hear at the dinner table because friends want to engage and interact in your life, too. And, they often have a role which is impossible for your family to replicate. Sure, you can tell your partner anything, within reason! Some things are better left to the wise sages who you call your BFFs. The truth is that lots of people would stop exercising altogether if it wasn’t for the company they keep. Come on – everyone needs a break from reality now and again.

Lead By Example

Mothers understand the importance of setting an excellent example for their kids. After all, a child’s parents are their heroes in the early stages of their lives. So, whatever mums and dads do, kids imitate on a regular basis. From a health and fitness point of view, this is a positive as it encourages kids to exercise. In a world where childhood obesity is rising, more children need to grasp the value of exercise. Non-mothers might think this is a paragraph they can skip, but you’d be wrong. Every woman has a female figure in their life that needs guidance. From a younger sister to a niece of a work colleague, they can be as impressionable as children. Hopefully, your lifestyle will rub off on them and encourage them to respect their bodies.

A six pack is nice, but it isn’t the be all and end all. Essentially, keeping fit has an array of positives which have nothing to do with the body.

DIY Ways to Diminish Your Depression


While, if you’re struggling with depression, you should certainly make seeing your GP a priority because a combination of medication and therapy has shown to be the most effective treatment for depression, there are a number of things you can also do for yourself to help you recover faster.

Here are some simple  DIY ways to diminish your depression that you might want to try:

Take Some Time Off

Work can be stressful at the best of times, but when you’re depressed, it can be torture. So, if you’re struggling, don’t be afraid to ask time off, it could make all the difference, especially if work is a contributing factor to your depression.

If you’re worried about the money side of things, remember you should be entitled to sick pay, and take a look at this statutory sick pay guide to put your mind at ease. Getting your depression under control should be your first consideration, and it may be harder to do that when you’re working.


Believe me, I know it’s the last thing you feel like doing when you’re suffering from clinical depression and just getting out of bed in the morning is a cause for celebration sometimes. However, on your better days, when you’re able to get up and about, doing a little exercise, even if it’s only walking around the block, will do you the world of good. It’ll get your endorphins pumping, and if you exercise in nature, it will sooth your stress too.

A Little Ray of Light

If you get depressed in the winter months when the days are short and the nights are long, it could be that the lack of sunlight and the lack of vitamin D that it results in could be causing your depression. If that’s likely, investing in a light therapy box and sitting in front of it for 15-20 minutes each morning might help to diminish your depression.

Keep a Mood Diary

Keeping a mood diary is another one of those things, like exercise, that you scoff at when it’s suggested to you, but which really can make a big difference and ease your depression more quickly than medication and therapy alone.

To keep a mood diary, all you have to do is keep track of your positive moods, writing down as many positives as you can find. You might also want to write down negative thoughts and issues and then look at ways of reframing them so that they aren’t quite as troubling to you. If this sound like something that could be helpful to you, you might want to look into CBT. You can also find mood diary apps online and via your smartphone.


There is some controversy surrounding acupuncture and whether it’s effective for treating anything, let alone depression, but there is one study from the University of Arizona that seems to suggest that acupuncture can lead to remission in depression symptoms 64 percent of the time, in women at least. This was a small study, but you have nothing to lose and if nothing else I can guarantee you’ll come out of your session feeling a lot more relaxed, which is great for depression in itself.

Join a Support Group

Again, please don’t throw anything at me! I understand the idea of spending an hour every week in a room with other depression sufferers spilling your guts sounds like a nightmare right here on earth to a lot of people, but going to a support group – check out this support group guide for more info-  is actually a really good way to get support from people who really do know what you’re going to. The social aspects of support groups are great for depression sufferers who often tend to isolate too.


Omega-3 oils, which are most commonly found in fish oils, but which veggies can get from flax and algae supplements, may be able to prevent mood swings and low moods. If you add them to your diet, it may give you the boost that you need to take on your depression with gusto, but you may have to wait a week or two before you start feeling the effects.


There is a lot of promising research around meditation, specifically mindfulness, and its ability to help people suffering from depression. A technique called mindfulness-based cognitive therapy has helped countless people to tackle their negative thought patterns, stop ruminating and reach somewhere approaching equilibrium AND it has been shown to be as successful as antidepressants in some studies at least.


I didn’t include this with exercise because, although yoga is certainly a good way to keep fit, that doesn’t have to be the main focus of this ancient technique. In fact, yoga’s combination of long slow stretches and calming breathing techniques are perfect for relieving stress, getting more in tune with yourself, sleeping better at night and, yes, managing your depression more effectively, according to many people who have tried it.

Arts and Crafts

When you’re depressed, as you will probably know, you can be prone to rumination. You can spend hours and hours thinking about that stupid thing you did five years ago, or telling yourself that you’re worthless. It’s a symptom of the illness and something that can cause your efforts to get better fail.

One thing that is pretty effective at taking your mind off the constant barrage of negative thoughts your brain is subjecting to you is arts and crafts. Things that require a little focus, like crocheting and painting, which also give you something physical to do provide a great distraction which will give you the space you need to start getting well.

St. John’s Wort

If you’re the kind of person who only ever takes prescribed medication as a last resort, try St John’s Wort. It’s a natural supplement that is actually prescribed for depression in Germany, and which has been found to benefit sufferers of mild depression without any nasty side effects.

If you’re interested in taking St John’s Wort, you should always see your doctor first because, although it’s pretty safe, it can react with other medications.

Fighting your way out of depression is rarely easy, but if you see your doctor, take their advice and try out some of the DIY suggestions above, you may find that your depression starts to diminish faster than you thought it would, or could.

Amazing Benefits of Adding Lemon Water to Your Diet

We all know the importance of drinking a substantial amount of water on a daily basis. But have you considered adding a few slices of lemon to the mix? Not only will this make it easier for you to consume your required eight glasses per day, but also there are many health benefits associated with drinking lemon water:

  • Help fight viral infections – Warm lemon water is one of the most successful methods for getting rid of viral infections and the subsequent sore throats that follow.
  • Helps to cut out the caffeine – Are you guilty of indulging in one too many cups of coffee while at work to get through the day? If so, you should consider replacing your morning coffee with a cup of hot lemon water instead. A lot of people aren’t optimistic about this switch, until they try it. Not only will you feel refreshed, but you won’t experience the jittery nerves that are associated with caffeine, and you will avoid the pesky afternoon crash that happens way too often.
  • Energy boost – When lemon juice enters your digestive tract, it provides your body with energy, which is great for getting through the day ahead. Not only this, but it helps to reduce depression and anxiety too.
  • Reduces inflammation – The acidity in your body will decrease if you drink lemon water on a frequent basis. This is where disease states occur. In fact, one of the main causes of inflammation is uric acid in your joints, and this is something that lemon juice will remove.
  • Gives your immune system a boost – Lemons are full of Vitamin C, which are like jumper cables to your immune system. If you are feeling stressed, extra vitamin C can help to improve your mood.
  • Lose weight – Adding lemon water can help you to lose weight in a number of different ways. Of course, by drinking lemon juice it means you are drinking less fizzy drinks and other drinks that are bad for you. Not only this, but you are likely to experience less hunger cravings by adding lemon water to your diet. This is because lemon water contains pectin fibre.
  • Excellent potassium source – Lemons are also an amazing source of potassium, which is good for nerve and brain function, as well as heart health.
  • Keeps your skin blemish-free – Lemon water can reduce wrinkles and decrease blemishes thanks to the antioxidants that are present. Your skin’s radiance will be maintained because lemon water detoxifies the blood.
  • Freshens your breath – When giving up smoking, lemon water is a must. While an e cigarette starter kit is widely considered the best way to stop smoking, it can not eradicate the negative effects of smoking that have already taken hold, for example, a smoker’s breath. This is where lemon water comes into place, as it will help to freshen your breath.
  • Cleanses your system – Last but not least, lemon water will enhance your enzyme function, which stimulates your liver to help flush out the toxins in your body.

Caring For Your Mental Health: A Complete Guide

Whenever we talk about health, it’s usually centred around physical issues. We talk about ensuring we remain healthy, and it’s normally accompanied by advice such as exercise a lot and eat foods that are good for you.

The problem is, we focus so much on our physical health, we end up neglecting our mental health. This is a real issue as mental health problems affect millions of people up and down the country, and billions all over the world. They’re serious issues too, and many people die because of mental health problems every year. In the UK alone, around 6,000 people commit suicide every year as the result of deep mental health issues. So many of these deaths could’ve been prevented if individuals cared more about their mental health and understood how to handle any problems.


That’s what this post is going to talk about today. I want to help you learn how to keep your mind healthy, which will ultimately lead to a much healthier you in general. If you feel like you have some issues going on up there, then I implore you to carry on reading this guide. It will help you understand what your problems are, and the best course of action to keep yourself healthy. Even if you don’t have issues, it’s important to know all of this in case you start to develop them one day or you have friends/family suffering that need your help.

So, without further ado, here’s a complete guide to caring for your mental health:

Accept That You Have An Issue

I think the biggest problem with mental health issues is that no one likes to admit they have one. We can talk all day about the stigma of mental health that’s really been created by the media and mainstream TV. We’ve almost been led to believe that if you have a problem with your mind, you are insane and will be crazy.

No. This is not true at all. There are multiple issues that develop over time and are common in so many people. Things like anxiety, depression, split personality disorder are all common problems and don’t turn you insane. They’re health issues just like a dodgy knee or obesity, the only difference is they affect your psyche rather than your physicality.

So, the first step in caring for your problems is accepting you have one. Realise that you’re depressed, that you’re suffering in some way, and make a commitment to improving your life and dealing with it. Don’t be afraid of acceptance, things are a lot worse if you’re in denial.

Try And Find The Cause Of Your Problems

If you have a physical problem that’s causing you pain, what do you do? You try and figure out what’s causing your pain, and it will help you solve the issue and return to full health. It’s the same with mental health problems. A lot of them are triggered by an event or circumstances in your life.

The issue is, it’s sometimes a lot harder to pinpoint the cause of mental health problem compared to a physical one. But, there are some examples of common causes. I think one of the top causes has to be divorce. If your parents split up when you’re quite young, it could have an effect on your mind and lead to mental health issues down the line. Mainly, this is because you bottle up your emotions and never speak to them about how you feel. As is the case with a lot of the causes, such as feeling left out of your friend group. You feel left out, you get lonely, and you retreat into your shell which causes anxiety and depression.

A big cause of mental health problems is a severe or critical event that happens to you or that you witness. The best example of this is an army veteran that saw horrible things when in the service, and it plays with their head. But, you could also develop mental health issues after a car crash or if you’re mugged, etc.

It’s important to try and trace back the start of your mental health problems to the main cause. In doing so, you can maybe confront it and help figure out ways to cure yourself.

Get Professional Help

As I’ve already mentioned, there are parallels between mental and physical health problems. When you’re physically in bad shape, what do you do? You call up your doctor and book a consultation right away. Often, they help you in ways you couldn’t yourself, and you recover quicker.

Again, it’s the same with mental health problems, you need to get professional help. Sometimes, this means calling your doctor, and they’ll refer you to a psychologist or another qualified professional with experience in this field. You should also speak to your bosses at work if you’re suffering as they may provide you with a professional service to help you cope. I know there are companies like Health Assured that some businesses work with for this exact reason. It’s especially important if some of your stress and anxiety comes from work too. You need the professional help and guidance to help get through it and combat your issues.

Looking for help doesn’t make you weak, it makes you strong. It shows you’re facing up to your demons and really want to change the way you are.


My final tip is simple; just talk. Talk about your problems with a professional counsellor or with friends and family. Write about your journey in a blog or film it and upload it to YouTube. Just make sure you speak about it as much as possible, it will really help you.

Most mental health problems are aggravated when you bottle everything up and don’t express your feelings and talk about what’s wrong. Don’t let this happen to you, speak out, and speak loudly too, it will help you as well as others too.

I really hope this guide helps many people out there suffering from anxiety, depression, or any other mental health problems. Take my advice on board, and you can start breaking free and feeling more healthy.
