On my birthday last year, I announced that I would be going for therapy to improve my emotional and mental well-being. One year later, what was the impact of seeking professional help? Here's telling it like it is. #birthdayhopes #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthsg #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthawareness
"We cannot change the past, and certainly we cannot turn a blind eye to it, but we can modify the way we re-tell the story to ourselves, and this can be a step toward inner healing."
Last year, I scratched the surface of re-imagining and rewriting my childhood experiences as part of my foray into Schema therapy, and it kickstarted a new way of interpreting the past for better mental well-being. So, yes, absolutely on board with what the writer is saying!

Honoured to be part of NCSS' Beyond The Label initiative. Glad for the chance to share my thoughts on mental well-being alongside other advocates such as Stefanie Sun, Kit Chan and Roystan Tan. Check out the Beyond The Label page for more quotes and inspiring info about mental health. 💙

I don't know about you but at the beginning of the year, I like to think about what I can work on to improve my mental well-being. Values, as it relates to mental health, is something that I have been learning about and am committed to sharing with anyone who is looking to better deal with life's challenges. I even used the topic at the mental health talks I have been invited to speak at. If there is one thing you may want to do to work on improving your mental well-being, I believe understanding your true Values is it. Read on to find out more!

I'll be checking out Singapore’s first photo exhibition by persons living with a mental health conditions. Organised by Resilience Collective, I read some of the photographers' stories on the FB page and you can really feel the raw emotions. Would be interesting to see how they represent via photography. Due to limit on no. of pax, need to book preferred slots via www.resilience.org.sg/photostory/booking/
You know how they say if you want to start a new exercise or diet regime, that you should tell people about it, so that you'll be more compelled to stick to it? Ok, I'll do that so I won't keep getting distracted by shiny, new activities! What are your focus areas for 2021? Share in the comments below, and all the best to all of us!

2020 is coming to an end, and it might be surprising to hear me say that it was one of the best years of my life, but it was. It has everything to do with the proactive steps that I have taken in my mental health journey. There are many things that are crappy around us, but there are also many things we can do to better manage our mental health 🙂 2021 isn't going to be a magical start to a year of fresh beginnings, but I certainly wish everyone a Healthy, Balanced and Happy New Year ahead! Till my next post, take care, stay safe and peace out!

I haven't felt like writing the past month. I was planning to release a series of articles about Adverse Childhood Experiences and Emotional Neglect, but I kept struggling to finish them. Way too close to my heart and I suppose it's year-end, and I am not feeling like being all serious or writing about troubling stuff. And then it hit me. Yes, it is year-end, yes, there is some good news recently, I am feeling hopeful, and I was inspired to write about a very important asset that many of you probably have been forced to rely on this year - Resilience 🙂 Here are 5 tried and tested psychology-backed tips to up your resilience game!
