Superblogger Chapter 3 (ii): How To Make Wealth Out Of Mental Health

Superblogger Logo

Hello, Followers and Fans of Life!!

You’ll remember that last week, I promised in the first of my Superblogger Wellbeing posts I would tell you all about how I keep my mental health in tip-top form through the secrets of my top-secret exclusive Mental Wellness Toolbox. And just like the very best anti-depressives, I’m not going to let you down.

Like everyone else, I have friends who feel really bad about themselves. Even major celebrities get sad sometimes. I myself personally was sad once for over a week, which gave me some really amazing insight into the whole world of depression.

I researched a lot online and came up with my own 5-step plan for mental wellness, helped of course by my loving friends and family, not to mention the love I get from you, my fans, which makes me feel so cherished and blessed, and which I appreciate so much I can’t even tell you. #loveyouguys #blessedblessedblessed

With all the love I get online, I felt it was so important for me to pay it forward and share what I learned to inspire other people, which as you know spun off into a whole new blog with 650,000 followers in two weeks.

Even Bloggers Get Sad

If I’m having on off-day, where I feel really anxious about how many followers I have, or how many followers someone else has, or how many likes I got on my latest Instagram post, or a hater calling me out for editing photos, or the whereabouts of the proof copy of that new book nobody else has, or the new Mulberry handbag I was absolutely sure I was being gifted yesterday but never turned up even though I waited for the courier all day long, I just take out what I call My Mental Health Toolbox, and get to work.

The 5 Mental Stages of Selfie-Taking

There are many ways of feeling well. Some people do it through meditation, or free writing, a three-week holiday in a rainforest, or a really, really long walk.

Sometimes I find that personally what really clears my mind is making sculptures of my enemies with papier-maché and then drowning them in the bath, slowly. I know it’s cray-cray, but I mean hey, #WhateverWorks, right?

But when it comes to crunch time, when I’m suffering from one of my many crippling anxiety attacks and I can’t go out the door; when all I can do is sit in my bedroom and blog to my millions of followers, what helps me most is baking super-tasty cookies and putting on a full face of makeup and my cosiest socks, curling up in my top-of-the-line Conran armchair with a really good book, followed by a really long walk with my Superceleb dog Blue.

Some of my friends have therapists, but I believe that the best person to listen to you, is You (or your dog, LOL! No matter how sad you get, a professional can’t make you feel as warm and fuzzy as a pair of really big socks and spending time with #BloggersBestFriend).

If all else fails, it is literally impossible to feel depressed if you do yoga in YSL sweats on the beach in Hawaii while the sun comes up.

Try it and feel your cares melt away, like ice in a triple kale yoghurt smoothie.

I always feel so good after taking a selfie! You should too.

But if that optimum goal is a little out of your reach right now, I’ve got a special gift for you, best follower fan friends! And that gift is my own exclusive 5-step plan for instant happiness which can be deployed without any cost, repercussions, or damage to depressed people everywhere.

And now all that remains is for me to give it to you!

 

List: The Ultimate 5-Step Plan To Better Mental Health

  1. Don’t suffer in silence. Tell a friend. A friend is better than any therapist. If you don’t have friends, post what you’re feeling on Facebook and wait for the comments to roll in and make you feel better.
  2. If you’re feeling so awful you can’t even get out of bed, bake or cook something. It will warm both the stomach and the heart.
  3. Remember it’s okay to feel sad. Everyone feels sad sometimes, and literally loads of people online are sad most of the time.
  4. If you’re feeling sad because of how you look, my go-to is Instagram, for inspiration. Lots of people there will inspire you to look better.
  5. Always look for the silver lining, because the silver lining is always there. One day when I was feeling so bad about myself I was literally crying, I wrote a blog post about how awful I felt, and it was my biggest post ever – 1.5 million hits in 2 days. My bout of depression gained me a million new followers, and not only that – just days later, as a result of my depression posts, I had partnered with an exclusive wellness spa who offered me a 4-day rejuvenation package which cured all my ills!

    I find an enigmatic status update is my ‘go to’ for feeling better. Something that will elicit a plethora of ‘u ok hun?’ responses. By the way, u ok hun?

      I can tell you’ve done this before, James!! Enigmas are sooo inspiring. You’re like, literally begging us to ask you what makes you so interesting, you know?

    I had no idea that sadness is such a great way to get new followers, Tara. Great idea. I’m going to have to work on making my life a little more depressing. I should go for a drive and run out of gas. In an area without cell service. In the rain. Without a coat. Maybe I could catch a cold, too! That would be fantastic!

      That WOULD be fantastic, Diana. Just as long as you make it uplifting as well as depressing. You have to remember, nobody likes a sad sack, unless they’re wearing Chanel and have 2 million followers who are paid by the Like. 😀

    Funny, I thought I should be upbeat for my many followers. I will stop that forthwith, as you have an impressive number more by being sad. Huh. Who knew?

      Well, not to state the obvious, but Superblogger knew, Alicia. Superblogger knew GOOD. Best of luck with the sadness. If you’re having trouble finding #sadinspo, might I suggest Instagram?

    I believe that learning something new can shift the blues, so how about signing up for a modern calligraphy workshop – only £500 for half an hour, you know it makes sense 🙂

      Oh yes Ms Scarlet! That’s exactly what we need – excellent and entirely disinterested suggestions for self-improvement without any self-interest whatsoever. Notwithstanding the fact that it’s a genuinely good idea, you did let yourself down just a tad by not making an influencer’s #NotAnAd recommendation for a calligraphy tutor.

    I should have known this was true. One of my most popular blog posts was the one I wrote about euthanizing our dog. I bet if I did a post now about taking a long walk in a Maine blizzard it would boost my stats a million percent. What do you think?

      Hmmmm. I’m not sure, Molly. Not to be flippant, but people would have been genuinely heartsick about and for your dog. Even on the internet, people cant fake emotion where animals are concerned. I’m not sure a weather system has the same emotional impact. Maybe bring a dog into the blizzard?

        You are right, Tara. People were genuine in their comments and engagement with our grief over our dog. We did have that time our son’s dog took off in a blizzard and my son and husband traipsed across snow covered fields up to their waists to find him. He was 2 miles away at a neighbor’s house! That would work, right?

    I like to place a picture of the person I hate in front of me.

    #Ihateyourightnow

    I have a shouting match with the picture and of course I always win. I use to do this in my driveway but that’s another story for another time. I loved that place. Damn those evictions.

    Anyway…..off topic….I always feel better….for a little while. For reasons I can’t explain, fruity tasting baby marshmallows help.

    It’s Monday in my world. Gulp, I can do this. Carry on.

    You are truly wicked, Tara, and you have me laughing when I’m in a state of mourning (not kidding – I really am.) Thank you for this one! The hashtags alone are worth a marshmallow or two. Subtle. Very subtle.

      Melodie, I was so sorry and gutted to hear your news. It’s a terrible loss and words fail me so I’m only glad that hashtags, for once in their sorry lives, might have helped somewhat. Huge love and hugs to you and all your family – you’re in my thoughts constantly xx

    I’m sitting in the waiting room in a cancer ward (with a sick relative). It is not a guffaw atmosphere. I cracked at your Insta recommendation on the 5 tips. Now everybody is giving me the stink eye.

      I wish I was a more sympathetic person, Conor, but instead I have an awful urge to make a glib comment about my only purpose in life being to make people laugh at the most inappropriate moments. All the same, I hope things improve for your relative soon and the laughs come any time they like.
