Oh yes, me too. Still more of a strange concept than anything else for me.
Yoga is a great way to distract yourself for some time, I also go to the gym twice a week after work, it helps a lot. Have a look at Wentworth Miller oxford talk on Youtube regarding mental health, he is very inspirational!
Hello Clare have a look at some of the Buddhist techniques on YouTube. A famous one is to remember 'I am breathing in, I am breathing out'

Sounds like a perfectly lovely day! Did you get anything at IKEA?
It was Manda! I bought some nice small things like candles etc. I'm more excited for my mom who found so many things to her newly decorated bedroom :)
Thank you pandas!
Thanks Cindy & Jeff xx
I don't know why I have to be so damn sensitive :---(
Sorry to hear that Claire. I think many of us are sensitive. It is hard to manage. Be gentle on yourself. Your video sounds like a great achievement
Please don't cry Claire. It's only the depression that makes you hyper sensitive - you've achieved a great deal more than I could so you should be very proud of yourself making this video - I know I would!
Take care & sending you big Pandy hugs
You have done really well be very very proud
I understand. You just want people to support you, but some folks feel they have to critique. Sorry he responded that way, but be proud of your work anyway!
Your family would probably do the same if he was the one breaking up.. they always choose a side.. don't beat yourself up. Being honest is good.
Thank you Stephen. I am not depressed, just HSP.
Thank you Jeff <3
I don't get your comment Esther, sorry D:
Thanks pandas x
Your videos are awesome & so is your English. Don't let one comment get you down. <3 xx
Your English is way better than my Finnish or Swedish, which I don't speak by the way.
Thank you lovely Manda <3
Hahaha Love, thank you :)
Had really productive day with editing, paper work, cleaning... Didn't go for a run but oh well. T was here. Parents not acting nice about my future plans (travel) REALLY hard situation for me, of course I'd love their support.
BUT I can do it on my own. I can do it despite their opinions. My dad said something like 'You better not be thinking that we will pay you travelling around the world' It made me feel sorry for him. They have paid me absolutely nothing
since I turned 18 almost three years ago. And I have lived with them the whole time. I pay my own living costs, my own food, my own bills, my gas for my own car I paid myself, EVERYTHING. Why the hell in my tiny mind would I even think that they
would pay my travels? Why would I even want that? During these summermonths he is gonna make me mental with these kind of comments, but I can't give up!
Good for you stay strong big hugs
Stay strong to your beliefs & plans. I can't believe he would even make that comment if he hasn't paid for anything in years!
Thanks dear Manda and everyone else xxx
Oh sorry Ali almost didn't see your comment! Thanks!
Oop! Two hugs for you. I always forget the last thing I read & hug before I see if I hugged. You deserve them. =)
I do that too Manda haha! Thanks everyone xxx
So pleased for you. Hope things keep good for you
What is cruising? Over here, the teenagers get in their cars & drive the same path over & over again, checking all the people and cars out. I don't get the feeling that's what you mean. ;)
Thanks Stephen! :) Cruising with my new cruiser board I bought a while ago Manda! :D It's so nice to learn something new! And they do it here too, even tho it's 18yos because that's when we get our licences haha
Thanks pandas :)
Sounds like you enjoy filming. Next movie: Cruisin'. There's a song by Smokey Robinson of same title that can play during the intro.
I do, Love :) Haha yeah, that would be good footage! Just gotta wait a bit for my skills to improve, I don't wanna break the camera with falling!
Still confused. Will have to see that video once you get practice. =)
Oh haha, it's like a skateboard Manda! Only just not made for doing the skate tricks and jumps, whatever you call them in english. You literally just move around with it, and it's fun!
So like a hoverboard?
it's a long skateboard. I forget what kids call it in US- longboard maybe?
No, not a hoverboard. Not a longboard either. You know pennyboards? It's like that but cheaper version! A small skateboard made for not skating, only cruising! :D watch my video Manda, you'll see it there ;)
Will do, Claire, because I'm still confused as hell. Too old for this youngin's stuff. ;)
Haha, sure thing!
Transitioning back from your long holidays and exciting travel is hard. I always have trouble with transitions like that. Eventually, you get things back to normal and figure out how to move on. Sounds like you're doing that!! *Big hugs*
This isn't really about coming home from travels Jeff. Somehow just too many things happened at the same time, conversations that made me think certain things, tour guide episode, hormones... Thank you <3
Hope you feel better soon, Claire. <3
Thanks Manda & Alice <3
Thanks Des :)
I know that feeling...im sending a hug just to show ure not alone ??
I'm a firm believe that - within reason, of course - this isn't a bad thing. Alcohol can relax you, make you feel better for a while, and just change things for a bit. So no worries...Enjoy yourself!
You know how I feel on the matter! But now that I have a little greenery, I don't really feel the need for alcohol (I won't turn it down!) I just need a steady supply of pot coming in (especially in the summer when BF & daughter are home). We'll see!
You can enjoy yourself a bit? You deserve it
What are you drinking? Wish I was the to share a bottle with you :-) hope you feel better x
Hope it worked.
Thanks Vanessa <3
Thank you Jeff x
Yeah, I know, Manda. There is something for everyone I guess!
Thank you Esther xx
Would have been fun Binky! I drank booze with hot chocolate and then with juice + longdrink mix. Wanted wine but didn't have it lol.Thanks! X
Thank you Paul. At least it made me think about all the stuff a bit less.
Thanks for the hugs x
I wish I had an answer for you...
Thanks pandas <3
