Easy choices, hard life. Hard choices, easy life. 💭 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “How good do you want to be? How much are you willing to demand of yourself? What are you aiming for, really? If you want to be great, then your thoughts, your actions and your behaviours have to align with that. If you want to be ok, then ok, dial it back a bit and be ok with that.” -@justinsua 🙌🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #WaitForTheCookies #NCRNation #StoicAF #ALLIN #MFMC

#BellLetsTalk about #mentalhealth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes to have the best days, you go through the worst. I’m so happy to finally be in a really good place mentally. I don’t really share many details about my anxiety, but reading other people’s stories helped me a lot when times were bad, and I hope I could do the same for someone else. After all, the point of Bell Let’s Talk day is to #breakthestigma and actually talk about it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2015 was a rough year for me. I quit snowboarding competitively and I felt a lot of my identity was aligned with that. I’d had panic attacks in the past, but they were one offs and I didn’t think much about them. I had always worked with sport psychologists so I typically aligned my mental health with my sport performance. In 2015 panic attacks became daily, and honestly I fell into a pretty bad depression. Thankfully, I’m surrounded by great family support and was able to get professional help. (What also helped was buying a plane ticket to Bali for some solo travel time #yolo.) If you’re struggling, trust me - it’s gets SO much better. It doesn’t happen overnight. It’s taken me years to get into a good routine and headspace. I’ve worked really hard to get to a point where I’m pro active on making decisions to prevent long run mental burnout, but every so often I’m reminded though a panic attack or a week of feeling down for no definable reason at all, that I need to always be focusing on my mental health above all else. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re dealing with this, I’m always here to talk and share stories. You are not defined by what you’ve been or are going through. Let’s #endthestigma. @bell_letstalk #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness
