Society can do with more Mental Health / SA Awareness

Posted 5th March 2016 at 17:51 by mutedsoul

This clicked in my mind just now as I went to my local Tesco's. This is a post off my head.

This week I started a work programme, I can't say I am well liked there however I haven't felt badly disliked so far and I have been contributing in the classes. I get on okay with some people. It has made me feel that self improvement is very possible for me. I have been super nervous at times in the work programme though, when it was the first day and some breaks. There my anxiety takes over...

Thinking I may go back to my Smartphone

Posted 4th March 2016 at 11:03 by mutedsoul

It's been a few days since I swapped my smartphone for a dumb phone. The major advantages I notice are better sleep, better focus and better battery, my dumb phone is still at around 75% since the last time I charged it, Last Sunday. I enjoy the fact that I don't have a distraction next to me and can focus on watching TV,reading and doing some work at the library more than when I had a smartphone.

However not having a smartphone has lead to increased anxiety, this might be a temporary...

My second day (officially) without a Smartphone

Posted 2nd March 2016 at 19:00 by mutedsoul

I know some people, especially older people in their 30+ years would think that I'm making such a big deal out of not having a Smartphone. But for me it is a bit of deal.

Not having a Smartphone has made me feel a bit more anxious, mainly because I imagine others would think I'm crazy for ditching a smartphone and it's one more thing that would make me be seen as a weirdo from most peers.

Current Job Review and some New Year Resolutions

Posted 31st December 2015 at 00:39 by mutedsoul

So I started 2015 in my old job. Whilst I don't regret quitting my old job, I honestly can't say my new job is really better. One thing I miss about my previous job is the rigid Monday to Friday, 9-5 timetable. Whilst my current job was advertised as 20 hours part time I always do 10 hours overtime with 1 hour unpaid lunch, 5 days a week but flexible days so it feels like I don't get as much free time as I get random days off. Job searching online I have found that flexible full time hours aren't...

What I have learned from a confrontation

Posted 31st December 2015 at 00:16 by mutedsoul

I feel I have posted a lot on SAUK about the situation I had with a close friend. Anyways, I feel the confrontation was deserved and needed to happen. As I think back I subconsciously used the friend as an emotional crutch to rant about work and social problems I sometimes have. I guess that isn't the way an ideal friendship works.

Anyways, I feel feeling less able to share frustrations and problems with my friend has allowed me to actually focus on solving my problems more than complaining....
