win the battle in your mind by FIGHTING BACK!

Battle of Mind got its name from the fact to heal from depression/anxiety and other common mental health conditions such as low confidence and self worth there is a need to ‘fight back’ from the perception you have and the feelings you get from the opinions and comments of others. When I had depression I felt very heavy, low energy to do anything and always quite sleepy but I knew if I gave in to these feelings I would not change and improve my life so I got up, I started exercising via the wii, getting myself in shape and educating myself by learning a new language and how to code websites and improve my skills in the Adobe suite…at times it was incredibly hard to be motivated but I had to keep fighting and it was a battle of self-defeating¬†inner monologues and thoughts between ‘what is the point’ to ‘I will never be able to do it’ to ‘I just give up’. I changed these thoughts to things that I could fight back against by talking to myself positively like ‘I will change my life’ , ‘I will do whatever it takes’, ‘I will life a fulfulling life’, ‘I will train myself to become a better version of myself’.

Sometimes, the fight I didn’t always win and sometime the negative inner talk and feelings would win and so I had to take a day off and at times, that made me feel guilty but as long as you dont keep giving up or resting and try again another day you too CAN fight back against your illness, even with the help of medication, therapists and life coaches it is compltely possible to alter your fortunes but YOU MUST PUT THE EFFORT IN TO BE ABLE TO MAKE YOUR LIFE WHAT YOU EXPECT/ED.

Hi folks! John Wilson is the founder of Battle of Mind and Seek A Therapy and a practising web and graphic designer. Before this John was also a part 1 architect in 2008 but due to the recession found it hard to find part 1 positions so retrained as a teacher only to find that wasn't right for him too...this led to him having a severe breakdown due to excessive debts and no opportunity. He had to refocus himself, his life and how he saw the world. It is with these difficult experiences that Battle of Mind was born and the desire for people to know there is a way out of any difficulty they may be facing.
