Do you suffer with anxiety? If you answered yes, do you feel like you’re able to manage it well? Or like me, do you find it difficult to work through your worries and challenge your unhelpful thoughts?
Behind the scenes I struggle a lot with my mental health - I suffer from anxiety, PTSD, and BPD, so I really wanted to create some items that I could use myself to better manage some of my symptoms, but also help others to do the same! Because of my BPD, I often see things in very black and white terms, so find it especially hard to tackle unhelpful thoughts. Similarly, my PTSD causes me to dissociate from my surroundings, so having the techniques to ground myself and think more rationally in times where I’m feeling overwhelmed is really helpful.
The pause pad is there for when you’re feeling overwhelmed and need help to ground yourself and become present again in the moment and regain a sense of inner calm. Due to their size, they’re also perfect to pop in your handbag and use whilst on the go too!
Each pad is £9.99 including P&P for an A5 sized pad, with 50 x tear away sheets of quality 120gsm smooth paper, glued on one edge and backed with heavy greyboard.
