It has been a while since I’ve published anything on here (two whole weeks in fact) but that doesn’t mean any other bloggers stop their writing!
It’s that time of the week again where we get to meet a fabulous travel blogger from somewhere in the world!
I love finding out about other travellers around the world, so I started this interview series to share their stories and to introduce you amazing readers to other bloggers too!
Mental Health issues affect 1 in 4 people in the UK each year, so even if you don’t suffer yourself, you are pretty much guaranteed to know someone (or many people) that do. And yet, talking about mental illness is still seen as a taboo. It is hushed up and down-played, people are embarrassed for those suffering. Things are changing – there are celebrities talking now, not just charities and support networks. People are starting to listen and understand. But far too often, ‘mental health’ is seen as a synonym for ‘depression’. And whilst depression is a massive mental health issue (the most commonly diagnosed in the UK), it is not the only one. Today, I am talking to Nick, whose mental health struggles are not those of depression, but PTSD and EUPD.
Who doesn’t love finding fab new things to read? That is why I love sharing amazing bloggers from around the world!
Talking about mental health is beginning to become more socially accepted, but accepting that you have a mental health issue is still incredibly tough. If you think you have a mental health issue, check out my top tips on starting the conversation, and try to remember that you are not in this on your own.
It’s Thursday again (how did that happen?) but it does mean that we get to meet a new travel blogger and find out about their wonderful adventures!
OCD is a very real mental illness that is often downplayed, joked about or stereotyped. My OCD is mild. And I am extremely lucky and thankful for that. But I do still have my own set of rituals that the logical part of my brain says are ridiculous, but the OCD part says that are totally necessary.
You have done it. You have found a beautiful hostel. It is safe and clean, has just the right amount of life – not too much that you get no sleep, but not so little that you feel bored. It is just close enough to the big-ticket items of the area that you can walk, but far enough out that you aren’t paying a ‘tourist tariff’. And the beds are comfortable with no little surprises (*cough* bedbugs *cough*).
