Today was special. Today was all about Mental Health Awareness, people and nature. 
I held my Annual Mental Health Awareness Walk in Kuitpo Forest. The day held around 90 amazing people who came out to be around other like minded people, to be alone with their minds in nature or run around and take in the fresh air. I couldn’t be prouder of everyone who attended. You made me smile so bright. Such an incredible bunch of people. Thanks for helping spread awareness and looking out for one another. Much love to you all.

Debilitating anxiety is mentally draining and exhausting, it’s consuming and feels like your life will always be this way. 
I remember when I was swallowed up by my anxiety to the point of being in bed for months on end. There is another side and you will reclaim your life. I hope my video can bring you a sense of relief and self belief. -

Sometimes we can’t explain it to others because we can’t explain it to ourselves. 
The key is, to never lose hope 💙

If today is a tough day for you, the argument in you head is a little louder, please know this is a period of your life, this is not your entire life. Our minds can play tricks on us when we are having a really hard time. It will always go to worst case scenario and make us think this is how it will always be. 
On my bad days my mind can take me to the worst scenarios and try and break me down. 
As hard as it is, try and sit with these thoughts and not react. The more we don’t react the less power it has over us x

I remember when my anxiety was debilitating and ruled my life. I still had obligations and things I had to go to, because if I didn’t that would add more stress. While my anxiety is not at the point of total takeover today, it’s still present and this still rings true. 
When I wouldn’t speak of my mental health I had this front on, fuelled by over confidence and alcohol, making sure no one saw inside or past the cracks. Inside I was a fucking mess of a person. No goals, just hopes and dreams with no action. A heavy drinker with a gambling problem and really no regard for life. I cared far to much and to squash my unbalanced emotions I’d drink through it. Wake up and play the charade for another day. 
I look back and think, how even? 
And then their are times now when I’m having a bad day, and the inside feels weaker than what the outside is showing, yet I have worked so hard on my inside the benefits are starting to show and these incidents no longer longer or spiral into self destruction. -

Hiding in plain sight. Just like Mental Illness. So many people messaging saying they can relate to parts of my journey with Mental Health, and that it’s helped them in many different ways. Thank you. It’s always about sharing to help someone who may need suffering in silence. 
That dark place is lonely when we ignore mental health in society. But it doesn’t have to be. -

Such a common answer. 
Let’s keep the conversation going so we break down the wall of stigma and talk about mental health like we do physical health. -

You want even need to pay attention as you will feel the energy in the room. 
It’s toxic and you don’t need to put yourself around that. Real friends and family are happy to see you grow and proud of you. 
To anyone struggling tonight with their mental health,,I hope something I have posted can bring you strength like it has me . Matty -

In this day and age, mental health days should be part of your work place. Your sick leave isn’t just for cold and flus. If you need time you take it, you are entitled and your mental health is a priority. -

How many of us have can relate to this with their mental health. As I look back when I gave zero thought to my Mental Health except for how could I numb and hide from it, I can see so clearly how much I was suffocating and struggling. The front put on was the best poker face anyone could have ever had. Isn’t it funny that we only see life’s lessons when we grow within ourselves. -

As I searched through deep quotes about mental health, they all had one theme in common, defeat and negativity. 
I’ve seen myself and many people come from the depth of darkness in our minds to hear the birds sing, the sun shine and the beauty of this world again. It’s no small feat, it takes time and challenges everything we are scared of. I don’t talk as if it’s cured, it’s not. It’s managed through constant improvement and commitment to make our mental health our priority.
Our journeys take time, no comparison of each others, we all know how hard this journey is, and we should all take a minute no matter where you are in your recovery and say to yourself, I’m proud of myself. -

To everyone I engage with you are good enough. You do matter. At no stage do you not matter. You bring to this world your own uniqueness, we all do and it’s what makes this world special. Follow your inner self and be you! Don’t do anything to impress others or take yourself away from being truly you. Nothing is more amazing than when someone is trying themselves and raw. 💙
