Happy

Happiness as presented on our devices can often seem elusive, hard to find and only for the privileged.


Happiness as presented on our devices can often seem elusive, hard to find and only for the privileged.

People waste time and money chasing, worrying and ruminating about it.

Thinking things should feel a certain way at certain times.

Change this mindset.

The pursuit of happiness is a modern luxury, lesson those expectations.

Being resilient and equipped allows for you to be stable and cope.

Allowing you to be there for others, achieve goals, experience basic sensations and be present for the moment.

Feeling happy happens in these moments.

Moments that come and go.

That happen because you are resilient.

And experiencing things as they are instead of what you think they should be.

I am a mental health nurse with lived experience, and have a blog nowandafterwards.com in which I enjoy writing about anxiety and anxiety management

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
