Managing Anxiety in the Covid-19 Outbreak

As you know, outside of this being a book blog, I also like to discuss Mental Health to try and help as many people as I can. In light of recent events, I thought now was a perfect time to try and help those of you who might be struggling.

There are numerous ways your mental health might be affected, and I truly believe this is a time that many people who have never dealt with mental health issues will come to understand what its like to a degree. Many people will suffer during these moments, many people will feel isolated and alone but please remember whilst we are in a dark and scary time, you are not alone. We are all in this together.

It can especially be hard for those who don’t have supportive family members as they will be on lock down with them for a long time. It can be daunting and particularly scary as no end seems in sight.

Anxiety – My Story.

Today I want to do something which isn’t about books, but Mental Health. Mental Health is so important to me and its something that seems to be such a Taboo topic and it honestly shouldn’t be. I want to use this post today to talk about my story with my Anxiety and I hope it helps someone in some way. I won’t go into crazy detail so I’ll try to keep this concise and to the point for you all.

Mental Illness Fiction?

 

Welcome Back to Suggestion Sunday!

I hope you have all had a fabulously bookish filled week, today’s post is back to Suggestion Sunday. This is where I recommend a book which I have previously read in order to introduce you to hopefully your next read.

Today’s recommendation is going to be a Contemporary Young Adult Novel which focuses on a Teenager called Audrey who suffers from Anxiety. This was the first book I read which featured a protagonist suffering from a mental illness and I was interested in finding out how an author would approach such a subject.
