It’s been a while… I have just had a severe lack of motivation to process any of my thoughts to put them down on paper. But, here I am back where I belong, doing what always seems to feel the most normal to me, writing my thoughts. I have been feeling completely off lately, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and even financially. It wasn’t the same feeling I had late last year before my bout with depression kicked up. This is more of a fallen off the bandwagon type feeling. I started the year off eating healthy, working out, I might not have lost a ton of weight but I was about 15 full pounds down and of course, I have gained that back. Although I have saved more money than I had in a long time I have had to dip into those savings because I was kicking way too…

30 Minutes In The Sun My therapist told me that every day it is sunny, I should go outside for 30 minutes. She explained that I should take the time to go outside, and that a busy day should not keep me from feeling the sun on my skin. We already do not get enough vitamin D, so try to get as much of it as I can. According to Healthline, “Studies have shown a link between vitamin D deficiency and depression. Researchers behind a 2013 meta-analysis noticed those study participants with depression also had low vitamin D levels. The same analysis found that, statistically, people with low vitamin D were at a much greater risk of depression. The researchers believe that because vitamin D is important to healthy brain function, insufficient nutrient levels may play a role in depression and other mental illnesses. An earlier 2005 study Trusted Source…

ParcelTrack This app is $2.99 (one time) and it will manage all your packages in one spot. When you pay for the premium. You can forward your emails to the app and it will automatically pull the tracking numbers out to track your packages. It will send you alerts and more. Great for this holiday time to ensure all of your packages arrive! I like this app for someone receiving packages, not for a seller who sends packages. Deskera had a great explanation of the app. Parceltrack is one of the more sophisticated tracking software out there. While most of the software is free to use, the premium version of the app offers some really good features. One such feature is that it allows the GPS based tracking of an individual delivery van through a GPS locator. It is an extra layer of security that the app provides. It also…

Dear Readers First, I will no longer be calling you readers because you are now my friends and I am now yours. So, friends, I want you to know that I hear you and connect with you. I come to you from a place fueled by a combination of anxiousness and eagerness. I am anxious to share the fun, amazing, and light-hearted parts of me, yet, I am terrified about the parts that aren’t so pretty. Despite the anxiety, I know sharing is more important than anyone’s judgment because I am simply one example of hundreds, thousands, or even millions of people who are just like me. People who share my hard times, bad days, anxiety, fear, and self-consciousness. People who face the same treatment, hate, and negativity from others. People who have to get up every day and do things that they do not want to do to survive…

So this is my fourth week working from home. For many Nashvillians, they did not see this coming the way that I did because my entire family is in California. Most of them in Oakland experienced a Shelter-In-Place before any other area had even heard of it. I knew what was on the horizon but like many of us, I was not prepared for what was coming the next few weeks and it is taking a toll on me mentally. Oh and all the eating is trying to take a toll on me physically lol. All and all, I was desperate to find something to make me life feel normal again.. well as normal as it could feel. After a week or so at home I started to experience chest pain, it felt like someone had kicked me with two feet in my chest. Now, I didn’t have any restricted…
