My freelance copywriting project at BYOS – How To: Connecting Mind, Body and Spirit
I planned and published the HOW TO series as part of the BYOS corporate social responsibility initiative. The HOW TO series is a portfolio of health and lifestyle articles on mental wellbeing for BYOS by Melissa Curry, a Dublin-based social enterprise. It was a great learning experience. I enjoyed being part of such a socially conscious brand and helping to achieve part of the BYOS vision of corporate social responsibility.
BYOS – an acronym for Be Your Own Self – is a jewellery brand and unique gifting platform that supports human adversity and promotes success. BYOS has partnered with JIGSAW-The National Centre for Youth Mental Health. The charity is working to raise awareness about youth mental health and to address young people’s emotional struggle. BYOS donates €1 for every purchase from their New Success Collection.
As someone who lives with an anxiety disorder, I know firsthand how mentally stressful and emotionally debilitating mental health issues can be, and the negative impacts it can have on your personal and professional life. I know the daily struggle, but I also know how to cope. I have learned how to treat my body as a self-care kit to settle my restless mind; I have learned how to be aware of negatives thoughts, to recognise and accept those thoughts through various thought-appraisal techniques.
I learn something new every day: a new tip, tool or technique because the path to Mental Wealth and wellbeing is a continual learning experience. It is important to accept that the process of managing one’s mental health does not lead to perfect mental health, but rather to the individual having a wealth of experiences and resources to maintain their mind and body.
