January stands for RUN EVERY DAY![/b][/p][p]This is MY opportunity to [b]start the New Year in a really positive way[/b].[b] [/b][/p][p]This challenge is all about [b]improving my health and wellbeing[/b]. [/p][p]And not only that, I will be raising funds for my local mental health charity[b].[/b][/p][p][b]More reasons why[/b] [b]I[/b] [b]entered this challenge[/b]:[/p][p]- January is notoriously a gloomy month. I feel particularly low after the chaos and excitement of Christmas and the coldness & darkness soon makes me feel blue. [b]Turn the blues RED![/b][/p][p][b]- [/b]To learn how to enjoy running... it's more than just running for a bus![/p][p]- To help raise mental health awareness whilst I take on this challenge.[/p][p]- Every penny I raise will go towards helping [b]raise awareness [/b]about mental health and [b]educate people[/b] in how to maintain it[b]. 'Mind - Dorset' challenge the stigma and inequality [/b]that comes with difficulties with mental health. And they [b]support people [/b]on their journey to recovery.[/p][p]- To accept my own mental illness and start the long journey to a healthier 2018 & beyond. [/p][p]For those that don't know, I was recently diagnosed with severe depression after years & years of symptoms. I finally gave up fighting it and accepted I needed to be true to myself and get help, so in September after hitting rock bottom that's what I did. I have had nothing but fantastic support from those closest around me but I know I need to help myself and no longer hide behind the false mask that I put on in everyday life.[/p][p]I feel very strongly about the stigma and lack of knowledge behind all mental illnesses and the 'box' those less knowledgeable put this illness in.[/p][p]This is not a cry for attention...I only want your understanding of the illness that 1 in 4 people go through at some point in their life. Asking for help makes me feel all cringey and bleurgh![/p][p]Talking about mental health can feel awkward. So join me on this journey.[/p][p]Think of it this way, when I am speaking out, going against the grain of stigma and shame by sticking my head above the parapet, [i]applaud me, dont be scared to talk to me and donate to this amazing charity.[/i][/p]
