Before I get into the 5 minute depression busting technique, I need to just roll things back and smash through some very common myths which are currently blocking your ability to become mentally fit and healthy.
Living with a mental health difficulty really doesn’t have to be as hard as many people make out.
I’m sure you’ve heard that meditation is great for a whole host of reasons.
It’s something I started doing to help myself cope with the craziness of running two businesses and trying to look after my family.
I know – it sounds nuts.
While this isn’t one of my specialist subjects (like all things mental health), I do like to have a clean kitchen.
There’s something about stuff being on the kitchen sides which just drives me batty.
If, like me you’ve already made the switch from household cleaning products to using essential oils mixed with water you’ll have noticed a difference in the air within your home.

Being stressed shuts down your immune system and forces your body to focus all its attention on keeping you alive. It’s not your bodies fault – it thinks your about to be eaten by a lion or something else utterly dangerous. While that meeting with your boss may set off all the same physiological responses as tussling with a lion I’m sure we can both admit it’s just not helpful!
