I’ve been seeing lots of posts about eating on Twitter recently. They mainly fall into two types: those who are celebrating their double cheeseburger followed by a tub of ice cream; and those who feel guilty about eating it.
Recently, I was in a pizza place eating my singular slice & 3 sides to myself. There were two women on the table opposite discussing their order. They must’ve agonised over it for 15 minutes. Which pizza topping was the healthiest? Maybe they should ask for it without sauce. Which drink had the least calories?
WHY DO WE PROCRASTINATE?
There are a ton of reasons we procrastinate. Probs quite ironic that I’ve sat with just that first sentence written for about 10 minutes, just appreciating the scone display in the café I’m working in.
We procrastinate because we’re stressed, we just don’t want to do something, or because we see the task as something negative. Or, the biggie for me, fear of failure.
As you’ll probably know if you’ve followed my blog for a while, I’m a big advocate of improving mental health.
From my own personal and professional experience, I know the giant impact that mental health conditions can have on our lives.
The thing I really want you to know, though, is that you don’t have to have a diagnosable condition in order to suffer from mental ill-health.
You can be having a ‘bad mental health day’ if you’re feeling stressed, anxious, or just generally in low mood that day.
It’s this kind of ‘every day’ mental health that I want to talk to you about today.
