VIDEO: Seasonal Affective Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, and how I cope

TRIGGER WARNING: 

This video does talk about depression and anxiety, which can be, well, depressing and anxiety educing to hear. Listen with caution. <3



Hey guys, 

This is a personal video and don't worry -- this isn't the only video I'll be sharing with you this month (but it IS kind of related, so I thought I would share it here, too, for context). 

This is a really hard time of year for me (honestly, for a lot of people) and I'm actively working to try to stay afloat and I wanted to share some of the coping techniques I've used over my long life of struggling with mental health. 

It felt weird to make this. To say it all out loud, to say something so personal to an audience, but I felt like I needed to share it in case it resonated with even a small handful of people. 

The next post will be back to our regularly educational posts in about a week! :) 

As always, thank you for your support and for listening, 

Nessa
