I’m writing this at the end of Mental Health Awareness Week, a cause very close to my heart.
I hope you are looking out for yourself; make sure you carve out some time today for a cup of tea or a walk in nature – no phones, no distractions – your brain will thank you.
My husband and I took a walk on the beach barefoot this week as we heard it’s been proven to increase antioxidants, improve sleep and reduce inflammation – any natural approach to wellness and I’m sold, do you think you would try it?
HOUSE HOUSE HOUSE will receive commission from some links.
I have a couple or recommendations for you this week and some gorgeous homeware so let’s jump (barefoot) in:
Phil Stutz is one of the world’s leading psychiatrists; in this documentary director, Jonah Hill, interviews Stutz about his life.
I was blown away by Phil Stutz; he’s the kind of guy you wish you knew. Not only is his New York accent massively endearing, but his ability to explain deep psychological concepts in layman’s terms makes him feel caring and unassuming.
At times, I wasn’t quite sure where the film was going as it veered off track like a jogging-away train, but all in all, there were many beautiful moments captured – I think everyone could benefit from watching Stutz.
Available to watch on Netflix.
In Therapy by Susie Orbach
In Therapy, Susie Orbach – Amazon from £4.27
I’ve let myself down. I have a couple of days holiday next week so I bought myself some books to read for the occasion, but it seems taking candy from Maggie Simpson would have been easier than getting me to put this book down; In Therapy by Susie Orbach, is fascinating.
In Therapy, is basically a script from some of Orbach’s sessions with her commentary. As someone who’s in therapy and obsessed with all things mental health and wellbeing, this book ticked all the boxes for me; there is nothing I love more than getting an insight into what goes on behind a therapists closed door.
Whether you’re just a little nosy or you’re obsessed with the human mind, this page-turner is for you.
