MENTAL MUTHA MEETS JODIE NEALON

Are you a mental Mum or a Mum that’s mental?

Definitely a mum that’s mental

What do you do when you feel overwhelmed? Meditate? Talk? Hide?

I used to hide, I’m trying to talk more now and find writing it all down gets it off my chest. 

Do you discuss your mental health with your mum mates?

Yeah, I’m really lucky though because a few of my closest friends had babies at the same time so we get to spend a lot of time together. 

How do you tackle mental health chats with your kid’s?

He’s a bit young yet but we always encourage him to be open & tell him he can tell us anything.

Who helps you in the dark? (In your pits, your mental rock bottom - who is your hero?) 

My mum & husband

What helps you in the light? (Meditation? Procrastination? Perspiration? People?)

My mum & husband I’ve also started doing mindfulness as well (headspace) which I love. 

Is it hard to talk about your mental health? (Doesn't mean on Instagram necessarily, but do you feel the stigma is lifting and do you feel safe to speak your mind, even if it is possibly 'mental'?)

I definitely feel the stigma has lifted, not sure if it’s an age thing but I definitely feel I can be more open now. 

Where’s your head at? (Right here in this moment, today)

Happy today but feel like I’m fighting a constant battle with my emotions over infertility. My son helps. 

Soft Play or Rehab?

Rehab I hate soft play ha

Jacobs Creek or a Jacobs Cracker? 

Jacob creek or gin

Nut Job or Nut Allergy?

Nut job

Self Care or Self Sabotage?

Definitely making a conscious effort to be more self care 

Journal or jog?

A bit of both I love writing & have recently took up jogging and it’s done wonders for my head space. 

Ask for help or happy to hermit?

Ask for help, this is only recent though, I used to be terrible for bottling things up.
