Reasons To Stay Alive 🍂 It seems as though twice as many women suffer from depression than men, but more than three times the number of men commit suicide. 🍂 Depression is mysterious: "It can affect people - millionaires, people with good hair, happily married people, people who have just landed a promotion, people who can tapdance and do card tricks and strum a guitar, people who have no noticeable pores, people who exude happiness in their status updates - who seem from the outside, to have no reason to be miserable." 🍂 Was recommended this one recently and am glad it's my current read. Matt Haig wrote the excellent The Humans and I wondered at the time whether he had ever suffered from depression. He had, but he learnt to survive. 🍂 This should be compulsory reading. 🍂 🍂 🍂 #reasonstostayalive #matthaig #matthaigauthor #depressionhelp #depression #thehumans #currentmood #currentlyreading #currentread #autumnreads #readingeveryday #readingoutside #readingoutdoors #readingman #manreading #goodreads #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #booksofinsta #booksofig #readreadread #readingtime📖 #octoberreads #anxiety
Monday motivation 💪 . So the days are getting shorter, so is your temper prehaps. Change in season always has an effect on the body no matter how much of a routine you've created in the run up to winter. . It's easy to allow the dark mornings to press the snooze on your alarm for you. And the shorter evenings steal away your  productivity at home. . Remember that this season is only temporary. Allow yourself to have a longer relaxing evening now and then. And sometimes pressing the snooze is the only way you're going to get through a day of work. Give yourself something to look forward to! You deserve to give yourself some stolen moments, you've worked hard and fought off a lot of storms to get to the place you are today. No matter what that place is, you are here and you are awesome 💝 . "I've been through enough storms to know that weather doesn't last" - Matt Haig . . . #hannahwisdom #mondaymotivation #seasonchange #weather #season #darkdays #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #sad #depression #anxiety #tips #measureinlove #matthaig #quote  #youmatter #strength #learning #health #doitforyou #selfcare #selflove #loveyourself #youareneough
Zamanı Durdurmanın Yolları ⌛️ ✔️ Bitti . . . Belki Shakespeare haklıydı.Belki de bütün dünya bir sahneydi* . . . 1581 de doğan , sonsuza kadar yaşayacak Tom’ un hikayesiydi . Shakespeare ile aynı sahneye çıkmış , kaptan James Cook ile aynı gemide yol almış , Charlie Chaplin’in melon şapkasından selam almış rengarenk bir kahraman var karşımızda .. Yinede bana göre kitap 400 küsur yaşındaki Tom icin biraz kısa tutulmuş olsada ana fikri bence cok guzeldi 👏😀 o kadar güzel eserlere müziklere sanatçılara değiniyor ki kitap , bende o yüzyılları daha derinden okumak isterdim.( Ama öyle olsaydı tom’un hikayesi bukadar ön planda olmayabilir ve ana fikirden uzaklaşabilirdi belki de 😅  o yüzden yazarın vardır bi bildiği diyeyim :) ) Altı çizilecek cümlelerin olduğu Film tadında keyifli bir kitaptı .. .  Pekiii son olarak Ölümlü bir dünyada ölümsüz olmak sizi mutlu edermiydi ? . . #matthaig #zamanıdurdurmanınyolları #bookstagram #albatros #kitap #roman #tomhazard #domingoyayinlari #neokudum #okudumbitti #kitapblogu #bookbloggerlife #lifestyle #blue #sea #istanbul #1kitap1fotograf #mood #sunday
Just finished this. And wow! Five 🌟 Such an important book about an important subject. Matt Haig bares his soul so we, the readers, can get a deeper understanding of depression. Well done! Specially like the bits about Formentera and the 40 pieces of advice, I will definitely use myself. And the running, I can vouch for that. Such a great mental cleanser 🏃🏽‍♂️ #reasonstostayalive #matthaig #readabook

I m a g i n e - we could remember this truth at every moment 🌍 •  Another gem by @mattzhaig that I read in class today - connecting in to our truth, remembering what is real & what matters....Letting go of the facade, the pretence, the mask.... removing labels and exploring what is left in each of us.....💭
Has anyone read this? By what I’ve heard it’s a must read. Would love to hear your thoughts on it @coolrivercafe #coolrivercafe #coolrivercafematlock #matlock #matlockcafe #bookstagram #books #reading #readingnook #matthaig #matthaigauthor #reasonstostayalivematthaig #reasonstostayalivebook
Coffee and books, what more do you need? ☕️📚 I’ve taken myself on a coffee date with @mattzhaig on my only day off this week and it’s absolute bliss. This really is my version of self care.

This is a truly incredible book by @mattzhaig - The ease and calm he presents as he discusses the "disease of thoughts" is an example of how we all should approach issues related to mental health.  A fantastic book that I would recommend to anyone; whether they are fighting battles themselves, or know someone who is.  #books #bookworm #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #reading #reasonstostayalive #matthaig #depression #anxiety #suicideawareness #itsokaynottobeokay
“The feeling is separate from the thing [you] are worried about.”⁣ ⁣ I have mixed feelings about “Notes on a Nervous Planet” by Matt Haig. But one nice sentiment from it is the idea that when we’re worried or feeling negatively about something, it’s sometimes the feeling we should be looking at to change, not the thing we think is causing the feeling. ⁣ ⁣ In the book, it’s in the context of someone being unhappy with how they look. They feel insecure and self conscious because they don’t like their appearance. But their appearance isn’t the issue, it’s their perspective and attitude towards their appearance. By looking at the feeling of insecurity, and finding ways to overcome that outside of their appearance, their perspective changes. ⁣ ⁣ This can be applied to other things too, like stress or anger or anxiety. And sometimes the things we think are the reasons for our feelings aren’t really the reasons at all. That’s a complicated sentence for your Sunday evening x
The lovely @storiesandstacks tagged me in the #fourofmyfavourites tag that was started by @diaryofabookmum  This was so hard!! I have so many "favourite" books. I'll likely do multiple posts for this one and I decided to start with some of my favourites from before I joined bookstagram. I could have tripled or quadrupled this stack so I just went for the ones calling out to me lol.

This one is a classic. Watch the video of the same title. It's even better. The author is an American Admiral who believes that making your bed is at the heart of a well lived life. Personally I was taught at school to do "hospital corners". While I haven't done one in a long time I still enjoy making my bed. And ironing. Maybe I'm crazy but I enjoy keeping it simple. Addressing my life on a micro level reassures me I'm capable of looking after myself and leaves me feeling competent. It sounds silly but it works. I put on some music or listen to a podcast or just enjoy the silence. It's a great way to get away from the screens in my life.  House cleaning is also a fantastic way to address low mood. When I'm down, overwhelmed, lost or feeling powerless, I reach for the things that are doable right now. And as silly as it may be my world view completely changes. Not always but almost. It's one of the best life hacks out there. Matt Haig has a whole list of them. In running we have a similar saying: "Run the mile you're in". In AA its "One day at a time". The moral of the story: keep it simplle, concern yourself about this minute, and not only can you survive this moment but you can build on it and thrive. And as the author says if nothing else at the end of the day you'll come back to a nicely made bed. #admiralwilliammcraven #keepitsimple  #dynamicrunningtherapy #runningwithmindfulness #matthaig

Ogni tanto è bello sentirsi dire cose banali, le si ascolta come quasi fossero le raccomandazioni delle nostre nonne, pronunciate tra dialetto e italiano. Inizialmente si fermano sulla superficie della pelle, perché sono sempre la solita solfa, e mentre noi proseguiamo lanciati a razzo in una vita scandita da to do list e like, questa “solfa” penetra nei nostri tessuti, arriva al cervello e lo accarezza tranquillizzandolo in quei momenti in cui si contorce su sé stesso in cerca di soluzioni geniali. Nelle pagine di questo libro ci sono tante solite solfe utilissime che dopo le prime pagine, si iniziano a gustare. È un crescendo di genialitá che sul finale regala delle vere e proprie perle sagge intrise di ironia. Il tono scherzoso caratterizza in realtá tutte le pagine, è nel DNA di questo autore che sa parlare di malattie mentali e paranoie comuni con una grande abilità, senza ghettizzare o etichettare ma spaziando avanti e indietro rispetto ai confini tra malattia e non malattia e riuscendo così a logorare la forza di un tabù che in Italia forse più che altrove, è tuttora presente.  #daleggere #matthaig #vitasuunpianetanervoso #letturenutrienti #mentalhealth
Matt Haig, Huomioita neuroottiselta planeetalta.  Netti voi tehdä meidät hulluiksi. Ihan oikeasti. Kaikki ne miljoonat videot, keskustelut, kanavat, päivitykset, sivustot, kuvat ja henkilöt joita pitäisi seurata, kommentoida ja jakaa. Ja oma elämä, joka pitäisi stailata, kuvata, videoida, päivittää ja jakaa kaikissa mahdollisissa sovelluksissa. Kenen aika ja järki tähän kaikkeen riittää? No ei kenenkään. Matt Haig yritti, ja oli tulla hulluksi. Haig kirjoittaa siitä, miltä tuntuu olla teknologiakoukussa ja miten varsinkin sosiaalinen media voi tehdä ihmisestä yölläkin Twitter- kommentteja tarkistamaan heräävän neurootikon. Voi kuulostaa huvittavalta, mutta kirjaa lukiessa ei juuri naurattanut. Haig ei halua takaisin aikaan ennen digitaalista maailmaa, mutta kehottaa jokaista miettimään omaa ajankäyttöä ja sitä, saako somesta enemmän iloa ja hyötyä vai pahaa mieltä ja ahdistusta. Jos oma vaaka näyttää kallistuvan jälkimmäisen puolelle, on kenties aika tehdä jotain muutoksia.  Vakavasta aiheesta huolimatta Haigin kirja on humoristinen ja toiveikas. Meillä on mahdollisuus selvitä digitaalisessa maailmassa järjissämme, kunhan opimme käyttämään nettiä renkinä, ei isäntänä.  Samasta aiheesta kirjoittaa myös Jaron Lanier kirjassaan "10 syytä tuhota kaikki sometilit nyt". Lanier jos kuka tietää mistä kirjoittaa, sillä hän on Piilaaksossa työskennellyt verkkoguru, joka keksi mm. käsitteen "virtuaalitodellisuus". Lanierin kirja on hiukkasen raskaampi ja vaikeaselkoisempi kuin Haigin teos, mutta yhtä kaikki erittäin hyvää luettavaa.  #lukeminen #kirjat #kirjavinkki #huomioitaneuroottiseltaplaneetalta #matthaig #somemaailma #hyvärenkihuonoisäntä

Who doesn't like a dark and disturbing  book that makes you feel deeply uncomfortable while reading it? 🍂 Matt Haig is a genius & I recommend all of his books!
Historieläraren av Matt Haig var en underhållande roman som lästes ut på en helg. Fastnade direkt i historien om Tom, som är betydligt äldre än han ser ut, över 400 år gammal... Intressant med miljöerna från dåtidens London och spännande att fundera över vad som egentligen ändrat sig på fyrahundra år. Lättläst och spännande. . . . . . __________________________________ #boktips #bokrecension #höstläsning2019 #höstläsning #historieläraren #matthaig #böcker #verklighetsflykt
Currently reading “The Humans” by Matt Haig. I am enjoying it. I love his writing style, it makes me laugh. And I think I need that at the moment.  What are you guys currently reading?  #bookworm #booknerd #matthaig #thehumans #bibliophile #igbooks #book #bookphotography #read #reader #bookdragon #currentlyreading
This is an absolute GEM 💎 Bought for the school library on my recommendation #matthaig #thetruthpixie #minchinrecommends
Another wonderfully unique book to add to my favorites! The narrator is an alien who has taken over the body of a famous mathematician who recently discovered a breakthrough that will ultimately propel the human race forward into ‘dangerous territory’. Initially he is disgusted by the way humans eat, act, look, and their capacity for wanton murder. Slowly while undertaking his quest he begins to see the positives of humanity like love, family, music, poetry, and the ability to remain sane despite human mortality. Surprisingly the novel has a much deeper message full of beauty and inspiration. Especially considering that when Matt Haig first started writing it, he was suffering from crippling panic attacks. He started writing as a way to heal and this book was his way to “look at the weird and often frightening beauty of being human”. I absolutely adored this story and couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend anyone to read it. It has something for everyone and is a work of art and dark humor. You’ll be laughing throughout and overcome with joy. #thehumans #matthaig  #currentread #currentlyreading #read #reading #igreads #instaread #goodreads #biblophile #book #books #bookish #bookstagram #bookshelf #bookworm #bookhoarder #booklover #bookaddict #bookaholic #booklove #bookphotography #bookcover #booksofinstagram #bookporn #booklovers #booknerdigans #booksarelife
🌼Review🌼  3⭐️ This book started off so creative, brilliant and humorous, and I thought this would be my next favourite read. Unfortunately the amazing first part of this book ended around 25%. The rest of the book was pretty 'meh'. I did like some of the 97 life advice things. Will I remember them, most likely not.  After all the amazing things I've heard about this book, I am a little disappointed. -------------------📘--------------------- #review #thehumans #matthaig

“Cum să simți timpul: scrie.” La o zi după ce am postat textul anterior, cel în care îmi spuneam oful despre trecerea timpului, am terminat de citit cartea lui Matt Haig, Câteva motive să iubești viața. Când am ajuns la pagina din imagine am râs. Chiar am râs. Mă plâng că timpul zboară, apoi vine răspunsul la cele mai multe dintre întrebările pe care mi le pun: scrie.  Cărțile vin la noi să ne ofere răspunsuri, soluții la care nu ne-am fi gândit. Este cineva care nu crede în puterea cărților, în magia lor? Dacă da, atunci continua să citești. Va fi un moment în care vei vedea lumea cu alți ochi.  Deși este prima carte a lui Matt Haig pe care am citit-o, am impresia că aceasta este cartea în care și-a deschis sufletul și a oferit cititorilor șansa de a vedea viața dintr-o cu totul altă perspectivă. Depresia și anxietatea sunt cuvinte care ne-au trecut pe la urechi, pe care, unii dintre noi, le-am simțit sau care ne urmăresc îndeaproape. Matt te ia cu el în anii lui cei mai dificili, îți face cunoștină cu depresia care i-a mâncat ani din viață și te încurajează să nu o neglijezi (dacă simți că te bântuie). A-ți neglija stările mai puțin fericite, fricile de orice fel, e ca și cum ai neglija o boală care-ți mănâncă trupul. Deși depresia nu se vede, ea este o boală care trebuie tratată ca atare.  M-am regăsit în multe dintre paginile acestei cărți și, la final, gândul mi-a zburat într-un singur loc: dacă ar fi să-l am vreodată în față pe autor, i-aș mulțumi. Iar dacă voi simți din nou vibe-ul pe care mi l-a dat cartea, îl voi îmbrățișa și-i voi mulțumi din nou.  Cărțile ne îmbogățesc. Uneori e nevoie de o singură pagină pentru a rămâne cu gura căscată și privrea în gol. Ele nu ne spun lucruri pe care nu le știm, ci ne ajută să vedem mai clar ce avem, ce putem face, cine suntem.  PS. Citește măcar o pagină pe zi #opaginapezi  Cartea: Câteva motive
This week I started reading a book 'Notes on a nervous planet' by Matt Haig. Its very apt for #mentalhealthawareness month, basically it talks about 'what if the way we live was engineered to make us unhappy' where the first few chapters might seem a bit too negative, I realised i was glad i wasn't the only one with some random scary thoughts which seem to appear from nowhere in my head. Am generally a positive person (if i can say so myself) but something else i just realised i switch between being a warrior and a worrier. In art I can see now i have been creating works as a reminder of the protection, the comfort that I felt as a child, maybe to to tone down my worrier part... or maybe just to celebrate the happiness the memories brings to me, the feeling of belonging.. so what are you? with what vowels will you fill your word with  W_RRI_R . . . .  #mentalhealth #bookclub #matthaig #warrior #worrier #typo #thoughtoftheday #artistmother #artistsoninstagram #quotes #thoughts #dontworrybehappy #ihearya .
In seinem Buch "Gute Gründe am Leben zu bleiben" schreibt Matt Haig auch über die Liebe zu seiner langjährigen Freundin und mittlerweile Ehefrau Andrea und in diesem Zusammenhang, dass diese Liebe ihn gerettet habe. Und obwohl mir dieser Satz einen Stich versetzt hat - hatte ich doch gerade das Gegenteil erlebt und somit die Gewissheit, dass mich nun nichts je mehr retten könne bzw. dass ich es nicht wert sei, gerettet zu werden - glaube ich fest daran, dass er wahr ist. Denn Liebe, vor allem die zu sich selbst, entsteht nicht im Vakuum. Ich glaube, auch wenn wir rein kognitiv wissen und verstehen, dass die Liebe, die unsere Eltern, Partner*innen und Freund*innen uns entgegenbringen (oder eben nicht) nicht unseren Wert bestimmt, so sind es doch die Erfahrungen, die prägen. Das Gefühl, liebenswert zu sein, entsteht, wenn wir geliebt werden. Menschen, denen nie aufrichtige, bedingungslose Liebe zuteil wurde, zuzurufen, sie sollten sich doch bitte einfach selbst lieben und ihr Glück nicht von anderen abhängig machen, führt zu nichts. Selbstliebe wächst nicht dadurch, dass uns jemand dazu auffordert, sondern immer dann, wenn wir geliebt werden. Ja, von anderen. Ja, das birgt das Risiko von Abhängigkeit. Eine Abhängigkeit, die nicht von Schwäche, Scheitern, oder mangelnder Persönlichkeitsentwicklung zeugt, sondern vom Menschsein. Geliebt zu werden ist ein Grundbedürfnis. Und wo wir gerade bei Wert sind:  Auch die Unfähigkeit, dich selbst zu lieben, schmälert ihn nicht. Du hast einen Vorschuss verdient. Von "außen". Du darfst dir das wünschen. Und es steht dir zu. Ich weiß, dass ein Großteil der Selbstliebe-Personality-Coaches das Gegenteil behaupten. Sie sind laut. Aber das heißt nicht, dass sie richtig liegen. #unpopularopinion #selflove #selbstliebe #liebe #glück #trauer #trennung #matthaig #reasonstostayalive #coaching #lifecoaching #deranticoach

Who wants to Live Forever? Fiction Book Recommendation @mattzhaig
'You will one day experience joy that matches this pain. You will cry euphoric tears at the Beach Boys, you will stare down at your baby daughter’s face as she lies contentedly asleep in your lap, you will make great friends, you will eat delicious foods you haven’t tried yet, you will be able to look at a view like this one and feel the beauty, there are books you haven’t read yet that will enrich you, films you will watch while eating extra large buckets of popcorn, and you will dance and laugh and have sex and go for runs by the river and have late night conversations and laugh until it hurts. Life is waiting for you. You might be stuck here for a while, but the world isn’t going anywhere. Hang on in there if you can. Life is always worth it.'
Just so y'all know I'm still alive 😂😂 . So this book was really fun to read, it's about an alien that comes to earth to kills us all but then starts to discover that we aren't as bad as he thought and maybe we deserve a chance (this is not a spoiler, I think). I really recommend it. . 3.5/5 because this is a story that had been told before and this one is nothing really outstanding when compared to those but it's fun. 3.5 is good in this case 😭. . . I know I post every once in a blue moon but don't judge me I'm busy 😭😭. Anyways bye. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram #books #favorites #bookish #matthaig #fun #contemporary #bookstagrammer #whatever

Tryin’ to get rid of this Monday (And yes, I have a dinosaur in the vase 🍃)
Last time I felt this consistently low I found myself in hospital fighting for my life. These past few weeks haven’t been easy at all but tomorrow will be 5 months on from when I was admitted and I  can thankfully say things have changed a lot. I have better coping mechanisms now. I know I can reach out to my support network. I’m keeping myself suitably occupied and trying to keep on top of things. I’ve fought battles that once almost defeated me. I am celebrating the little victories. I am a survivor.  #mentalhealthawareness  Also I’ve reposted my #worldmentalhealthday post in all the images. Now more than ever I stand by what I said and I can see now that I shouldn’t have let my overwhelmed little brain make me delete it. Here’s to better days. 💛🌻
Send us a direct 📩 message for your inquiries or to place an order on your next read 📚  The Humans is a funny, compulsively readable novel about alien abduction, mathematics, and that most interesting subject of all: ourselves. Combine Douglas Adams’s irreverent take on life, the universe, and everything with a genuinely moving love story, and you have some idea of the humor, originality, and poignancy of Matt Haig’s latest novel.  Our hero, Professor Andrew Martin, is dead before the book even begins. As it turns out, though, he wasn’t a very nice man--as the alien imposter who now occupies his body discovers. Sent to Earth to destroy evidence that Andrew had solved a major mathematical problem, the alien soon finds himself learning more about the professor, his family, and “the humans” than he ever expected. When he begins to fall for his own wife and son--who have no idea he’s not the real Andrew--the alien must choose between completing his mission and returning home or finding a new home right here on Earth. #kurdishreaders #thehumans #matthaig

Herkese merhaba arkadaşlar ❤️ @dr_dunyasi ‘ nda 3. kitap fuarı başladı . D&R mağazalarında yüzlerce sarı etiketli kitapta 2.ye %50 indirim fırsatı var. Aslında geçen ay yaptığım alışverişi okuyup bitirmeden alışveriş yapmayı düşünmüyordum ama dayanamadım.Çünkü çok hoş ve güncel kitaplar indirime girmiş bulunmakta.Ve 3 Kasıma kadar sürecek bu indirimden tekrardan faydalanacağım. Görselde gördüğünüz üzere 6 kitap aldım. Ve içlerinde en merak ettiğim ise Gülseren Budayıcıoğlu’nun “Camdaki Kız” romanı. Azra Kohen’in romanı kalınlığı ile gözümü korkutmuş olsa da bir çok kişinin sayfasında güzel yorumlar gördüm. Yanında bir kitap ile okumaya başlayacağım onu da . Aldığım klasikler hakkında bir bilgim yok tamamen kapaklarına ve isimlerine kendimi yakın hissettiğim için aldım . Zaten o seriyi tamamlamak adına okumasam da bir çok kitabını alıyorum. “Zamanı Durdurmanın Yolları” yine bir çok kişinin beğenisini kazanmış ve övülen yorumlarına dayanarak aldığım bir kitap oldu.İçeriği hakkında az çok bilgim var ve onu da okumak için sabırsızlanıyorum.

"And, just as it only takes a moment to die, it only takes a moment to live. You just close your eyes and let every futile fear slip away. And then, in this new state, free from fear, you ask yourself: who am I? If I could live without doubt what would I do? If I could be kind without the fear of being fucked over? If I could love without fear of being hurt? If I could taste the sweetness of today without thinking of how I will miss that taste tomorrow? If I could not fear the passing of time and the people it will steal? Yes. What would I do? Who would I care for? What battle would I fight? Which paths would I step down? What joys would I allow myself? What internal mysteries would I solve? How, in short, would I live?" 📝by @mattzhaig . I think we all should live fearless, making the best of every moment, finding beauty and meaning in everything we do and see. Being mindful and caring with ourselves, each other and most of all Mother Earth. This planet we are living on is so utterly beautiful and vast in its different colours and nature’s diversity. Been amazed by certain spots of it for weeks now and it’s so funny how being out, connecting with nature just instantly calms my mind over and over again. Nature really nurtures my soul and I strongly believe that we all need to preserve as much as possible from its original state.
Om man är ute efter en annorlunda roman här är ett tips 😊 . . . . . #historieläraren #matthaig #merastyleläser
Nuggets of wisdom from my recent read ‘Notes on a Nervous Planet’. Keeping these close. ✨ To enjoy life, we might have to stop thinking about what we will never be able to read and watch and say and do, and start to think of how to enjoy the world within our boundaries. To live on a human scale. To focus on the few things we can do, rather than the millions of things we can’t. To not crave parallel lives. To find a smaller mathematics. To be a proud and singular one. An indivisible prime. ✨ The challenge is to find who we are amid the crowd of ourselves. ✨ Change doesn’t just happen by focusing on the place you want to escape. It happens by focusing on where you want to reach. Boost the good guys, don’t just knock the bad guys. Find the hope that is already here and help it grow. ✨ There is no panacea, or utopia, there is just love and kindness and trying, amid the chaos, to make things better where we can. And to keep our minds wide, wide open in a world that often wants to close them. ✨ Breathe. Breathe deep and pure and smooth. Concentrate on it. Breathing is the pace you set your life at. It’s the rhythm of the song of you. It’s how to get back to the centre of things. The centre of yourself. When the world wants to take you in every other direction. It was the first thing you learned to do. The most essential and simple thing you do. To be aware of breath is to remember you are alive. ✨ When normality becomes madness, the only way to find sanity is by daring to be different. Or daring to be the you that exists beyond all the physical clutter and mind debris of modern existence. ✨ Even when the tide of society is pulling us in one direction it has to be possible – if that direction makes and keeps us unhappy – to learn how to swim another way. To swim towards the truth of ourselves, a truth our distractions might be hiding. Our very lives depend on it. ✨ Trying is the opposite of being.  #notesonanervousplanet #matthaig

You are not your feelings. You just experience them. Anger, sadness, hate, depression, fear. This is the rain you walk in. But don't become the rain. You know the rain will pass. You walk on.

The Humans  Recommended by Aimee Bloy  In a few words: A fresh way of looking at humanity — from an analytical alien's point of view!  Great for: People who love homour, maths, dogs, poignant moments and aliens!  Why I love this book: I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but I absolutely loved it. It was a funny and light-hearted approach to how an alien would view our human world and puts into perspective what really matters.  The book covers some serious themes, yet leaves you with a reminder to enjoy the simple things in life.

Another theatre trip. This time to see ‘Reasons To Stay Alive’ @northern_stage . #theatre #reasonstostayalive #reasonstostayaliveplay #matthaig #wellbeing #mentalhealth #northernstage #newcastle #reasonsplay
Vandaag een beetje pre-Halloween-fun! 🎬 De film: The dead don't die Bill Murray. Adam Driver. Zombies. Meer info heb ik echt niet nodig om deze film nu al geniaal te vinden. 📚 De boeken: The Radleys  Een boek over een familie vampiers waarvan de kinderen het niet weten tot de dochter een belager zomaar onthoofd en de ouders de waarheid moeten vertellen. En natuurlijk is er een coole bloedzuigende nonkel die met een louche busje rijdt.  Frankenstein Een van de bekendste boeken ter wereld over een (samengesteld) lijk dat terug tot leven komt. Ultieme Halloweenklassieker.
Mind  This book was recommended to us to serve as a reminder that when you think you’ll never feel different it’s possible. Matt Haig tells his story of major depression and recovery. Learning to live his life the best way he could. Book of hope.  #matthaig #depression #reasonstostayalive #book #tuesday #mind #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #stronger #community #strength
📚 Q: If you were given the choice, would you want to be immortal? A: I always thought I would. But after reading this, maybe not. ➰ The vibe of this book, as they say in the 21st century, is melancholic. Man, just full of melancholy and the ramblings of a man who’s lived too long. There were parts of this book that I really enjoyed, and parts that I didn’t. I love Matt Haig as someone who talks candidly about mental health, and his self help/advice books are amazing. However, with this, though it was fiction, at times it felt like he was tapping into that self help/advice genre. There were paragraphs were Tom, the MC, went on a bit of a rant about technology and other ‘problems’ of this century. Because of this, the plot was a bit thin. It was kind of like Haig wanted to write some commentaries about the state of society, and chose to do it through the eyes of a man who’s lived centuries. That said, I did enjoy the flashbacks, especially of his first century. And a lot of the commentaries rang true. Time has always been my biggest fear. Not having enough of it. So I enjoyed the discussions about time. It made me ponder and think and it also made me sad. Yeah. Like I said. Melancholic.
