Hello lovely people ✨ Happy Sunday. If you saw my post yesterday you’ll know I’ve committed to something for March to try and help me get back on the Instagram horse. I’ve decided, much like my #100daysofhelpfulreminders to start a mini post a day series all the way through March. This one will simply be called #marchhelpfulreminders – so give the hashtag a follow if you want to see them all. I’m going to try my best to keep on top of it 💗 Day 1 of #marchhelpfulreminders // I’ve mentioned before how out of sorts I’ve felt lately. This past week in particular I’ve felt extremely off and down and anxious. Now, I’m fairly certain it’s because I’m due on and it’s just a super bad month this month, but that still doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. The thing is I’ve had days in between the crappy days where I’ve felt quite a bit better. And on the crappy days I’ve had hours in between the crappy times where I’ve felt more okay. There really is no straight line when it comes to emotions and feelings and I just wanted to remind you all (and myself) that that’s okay. It doesn’t mean you’re a feelings fraud. It doesn’t mean your feelings aren’t genuine. It just means you’re human. So just try to take each moment as it comes and just be gentle with yourself. That is my main aim for today 🌻✨ #quoteoftheday #handwrittenquotes #positvereminders #postitnotereminders #thingstoremember #notetoself #embraceyourself #selflovewarrior #selflovefirst #selfworth #mentalhealth #mentalhealthquotes #selfcarefirst #onlylove #youareenough #youareworthy #youcandoit #keepgoing #bebrave #youaregoodenough #selfcaresunday #jessrachelsharp

Ten little ice bergs all in a row. Sounds like an Agatha Christie novel to me. Little known fact- I love Hercule Poirot, and in fact any Agatha Christie tv adaptation. . The icebergs are back and they’ve formed a band called ‘the imposters’. . It’s estimated that around 70% of people have experienced imposter syndrome. When I asked what your imposter tells you the results had striking themes (thanks for all your responses): •not good/ competent/ skilled enough for whatever role you have, including life and work roles •that your title/ role over represents your abilities •that you should know more than you do •that other people are managing better and know what they are doing •that you are acting at being competent •that you are a fraud •that you do not belong where you are. •that you do not deserve where you have go to. •that you have got to where you are due to luck •that someday this luck will run out and people will discover you are a fraud. If you want to read more and find ways to manage imposter syndrome I highly recommend fellow clinical psychologist @drjessamy book the imposter cure. #clinicalpsychologist #clinicalpsychology #cantwaitfortheicebergstotpappearance

Me and @banishacnescars are together in this partnership to spread #skinpositivity and this quote couldn't be more true. Our mental health should always come first – no treatment is more important than that. Tell me something: have you been more concerned with your appearance or mental state lately? Be honest 💛🌻Portrait of beautiful @emilykeel_ /// Eu e @banishacnescars estamos juntos em uma parceria para espalhar #skinpositivity e esse quote nao poderia ser mais verdadeiro. Nossa saude mental deve vir em primeiro lugar sempre – nenhum tratamento é mais importante do que isso. Me contem uma coisa: voces tem se preocupado mais com a sua aparencia ou estado mental ultimamente? Sejam sinceros 🌻💛 #banishacnescars #banishpartner #skinpositivity #acnepositivity #bopo #acne #acnetreatment

– In these digitally connected times, increasing numbers of us are able to do our jobs from anywhere with the aid of a laptop and internet connection. ⁠ ⁠ – While that can be a great thing, it can also present some unique challenges to our mental health.⁠ ⁠ – 49 per cent of remote workers claim that their greatest challenge is related to mental health. Working alone and without an externally imposed schedule can easily lead to a lack of motivation and lower self-confidence. ⁠ ⁠ – Check my latest blog (link in my bio) to find four behavioural tips that will help you to stay positive when homeworking. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #healthandwellness #wellnessexpert #healthpsychologist #harleystreet #positivepsychology #positivechanges #wellnessgoals #lifestylemedicine #healthbehaviourtips #workingremote #wellbeing⁠ ⁠ ⁠

It takes a special kind of personality to become a passionate healthcare professional. Often, they're compassionate and generous with their time and expertise. This is why many health practitioners find it difficult to say no to clients that may need a little extra attention or help.⠀ ⠀ But remember that your health, your time and your energy are important, too. It's great to go above and beyond to reach out to your clients and to practice empathy everyday, but remember to draw professional boundaries and to not let your compassion get in the way of your own health and goals!⠀ ⠀ It is OK to say no to a discount, to say no to staying open late for one client, or to say no to book in a new appointment when the client hasn't paid their previous invoices. You can be a kind person and still say no!⠀ ⠀ What are some difficult things you've had to say no to in the past?⠀ ⠀ #sayno #selfcare #privatepractice #alliedhealth #healthbusiness #healthcare #healthpractitioner #compassion
