Holidays….taking time out for yourself

I try to take holidays religiously every six months. One or two weeks away is a must for me to recharge my batteries.

I don’t travel overseas as this can cause major mental health issues with my bipolar. People don’t understand that flying over numerous times zones can reek havoc with mental health issues in particular with bipolar.

It’s all to do with the circadian rhythm of your body (your body clock as such) and when this gets out of sync….then disaster can strike.

I prefer heading to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland or road trip to Sydney.

Relaxing poolside at a resort, exploring new areas including the Sunshine Coast hinterland keeps me balanced and happy.

Bipolar is an important topic for me as I have travelled through the highs and lows of this particular mental illness for just over 25 years now. Follow my journey from the past to present and hopefully some of you out there may gain some inspiration and come to the realisation....that it can be a positive and rewarding experience once you have learnt the tools of the trade...and enable you, or someone special in your life, to have a fruitful and rewarding life.
