Being Bipolar – 1 of 3 – Every person is different – #Channel4 #Bipolar

Regarding the UK’s Channel 4 programme, “Being Bipolar” that was shown on 6th March 2015:

I tend to agree with journalist, Yvette Caster, as she shares her personal experiences as a person diagnosed as bipolar. Yvette writes,

The talking cure can help to an extent but, for me at least, the doing cure is far more effective.

As in taking dance classes to cheer me up, singing, going to bed before 11pm, avoiding too much alcohol, not smoking, never taking drugs, taking baths, meditating, swimming, walking and, crucially, working.

This last bit of ‘therapy’ has helped me more than any amount of sitting in a room with a lady with inadvisable style choices attempting to answer personal questions ever could.

Regular, productive activity that gives you a sense of achievement and purpose is crucial to happiness, bipolar or no.
