For me having a go to hobby helps When I’m feeling low or if I feel something is about to happen, I grab my camera and jump in the van to go take pics somewhere.
Being out in the great outdoors is a big thing with helping with your mental health. But like everything it’s not for everyone. Me, I like to be alone when I’m feeling low and not everyone does.
So when I’m out somewhere nice and peacefultaking in the views and relaxing it kind of clears my head. It helps get rid of those bad thoughts and dark clouds.
But what got me thinking was a challenge that I would like help with.
Since I’m into photography I am going to set a challenge. If I get enough people contributing it will make a fantastic post so I need all the help I can get. But please dont just think this is for the people who have or has suffered or even know anyone that does, its for everyone, I want all views.
The challenge is this.
If you were to describe mental heath what would it be?
If you were to take a picture of mental health how would it look?
These 2 questions is all I ask. If you email me an answer and a photo along with your name and blog. I will feature it in another post.
Email me at email@example.com
All I ask is that you share this post far and wide to help get as many people as we can involved. My aim is to gather at least 100 photos.
And remember you don’t have to have a DSLR camera to help me out. A simple phone shot will suffice. As long as it represents your take on mental health.
