My 2020 Resolutions

With 2020 nearing ever so closer I have decided to make some new year resolutions.

Don’t worry I won’t be focused on changing myself, or losing weight or any other popular new year fads.

For me a new year means another chance to better manage my mental health. I’m not going to change who I am to do so. Instead I will focus on who I already am.

Mental health is the most influential thing in my life and managing it hasn’t always been easy for me. In fact, recently I have really struggled with keeping things balanced, but I hope that a new year will give me the motivation I need to survive another year and many more to come.

My Resolutions

  1. Keep Taking My Medication.

I always seem to let everything that is going on get on top of me, so much so that I can barely function at times and when it comes to taking my medication, I forget to take it. Not just once but on many occasions I will forget to take my pills leaving myself in a foggy state of anxiety and depression, and from there everything tends to get out of control.

For 2020, I’m going to make myself a promise to stay on top of my medication. If I have to set reminders and start actively tracking my intake then so be it. If it means I will feel better within myself then that is all that matters.

  1. Self-Care Is Important.

Currently I try to make as much time as I can to look after myself, but being a mother to a child with additional needs means that I spend so much time making sure that he is okay and that he has the support he needs, that finding the time to relax and unwind feels almost impossible .

So, for the new year I am going to add two self-care activities per week to my schedule and hopefully I will be able to increase this as time goes on.

  1. Socialise!

Before July 2019, I regularly attended a local mental health group where I had the opportunity to meet other people who were also struggling with aspects of their mental health. They also had planned outings and activities that I really enjoyed.

However, when summer came along and my son finished school, I found myself too busy to attend the group any longer. When Damian returned to school in August, I did plan on going back to the group but because I had been away from it for so long, I was too anxious to go back. I haven’t been since.

So, I am going to make it my mission to get back into it and maybe meet some new people in the process.

I have chosen resolutions that I know are possible for me to achieve, so that I can give myself a chance to actually succeed. And I will.

I hope you can all join me on my journey to better mental health xox
