5 Fun Facts About Me! Mental health with therapist Kati Morton
Hey everybody! Happy Thursday! Now today’s video is completely different from what we usually do And if you know where this quote comes from, put it in the comments. And the quote is: “AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!” If you know where that’s from, most likely, we can be friends. Pretty funny, you should find out, you should put it in the comments. But without further ado, I was tagged in the five things about me tag video thing that’s going around YouTube. I was tagged by Melissa, AKA idranktheseawater, I’ll put the link to her video in the description Just so you can check it out, But let’s get into some of these funny, crazy, weird, maybe interesting facts. First fact is that I’ve never had an ice cream headache. Like, never. And I’ve tried And I know what you’re saying, “Kati, sit down and just pound a milkshake,” I’ve done it. I’ve done a lot of it. And I don’t know – One of my friends, who’s a physician, told me it’s because Maybe it’s the way I eat – Because I let it melt in my mouth, versus pushing it up against the roof of my mouth Because that’s what actually causes an ice cream headache. It’s the top of your mouth, if the top of your mouth gets too cold, that’s what gives you that sensation. Or at least that’s what he told me. I haven’t done research – I’m not a doctor. But in my entire 33 years of life, I’ve never had an ice cream headache. Number two: I am really stubborn and competitive. And that’s a really bad combination, so this is something that I’ve actually been working on in my own therapy And just in my own self-care, and things that I’m improving and working on as a person For a really long time. And I think I’m getting better…? We’d have to ask Sean. But I’m also just aware of how I am, and so I purposefully don’t put myself in situations Where there’s gonna be competition or a lot of games Or people are gonna do something that I really don’t like, or I don’t really wanna do because I’ll be stubborn about it And so I just have gotten better at maybe managing that as well. And so, you know, I’m not perfect. I’m working on stuff too. Number three: I love blankets. I know that’s a very strange fact, but it’s just very true. I personally, before I even got together with Sean, owned a lot of blankets. And it’s only grown from there. And I secretly think Sean also really likes blankets, because together we probably have, like, fifteen of them. I’m not talking blankets on your bed, I’m talking like, “I wanna lay on the couch and pull up a little blanket.” We have a lot of them. They’re wonderful, super cozy. Can wrap up – I know we live in California, but I still love me some blankets. Number four: I hate makeup. I know that sounds weird, and I’ve got a face full of it right now, but as soon as the camera goes off, the makeup comes off. I don’t know how people wear it all the time. I feel like I can’t touch my face. I don’t really know how to properly do it, number one, Don’t actually care that much, number two, And number three, I just feel so restricted. Like, what if my eye itches? I can’t rub my eye, ’cause then mascara and eyeliner and all that other shit just falls behind – I cannot. I do not like it, I leave it on for the least amount of time possible, and – yeah, If you caught me randomly in the street, chances are, I won’t have any makeup on. And number five: I get stressed and freaked out too. I’m not perfect, I don’t want any of you to think that my mental health is always sound And I’m just doing great all the time, and my life is filled with like, puppies and ice cream or something. That would be nice though. But, that’s not how my life is. I get really freaked out too. When I quit my full time job to do this full time, You bet, there was some stress that comes along with that. I still have nights where I stress about it And I worry about it, and I get anxiety, and I have trouble falling asleep. And so it’s something that I’m always working on, and something that we all have to better manage. And so in the new year, something that I’m being more mindful of is my work life balance. And I’m gonna try progressive relaxation – I’m working on the anxiety workbook And I learned how helpful progressive relaxation can be overall. Not only for your mental health, but also your physical health, so that’s something I’m gonna give a go. I also meditate, I do yoga, you all know I love to color. I also love face masks. My favorites right now happen to be from Origins. And I put them on – You all know, if you follow me on Snapchat and Instagram, just how much I love a good face mask. And I’ll put links in the description if you wanna check out the ones that I like. I also am trying to limit my time at night when I’m on a device, a device being like a phone, an iPad, a computer. Things like that, and also getting outdoors more. So know that I struggle too, there are things that I’m working on too, And that’s why I always say we’re in it together, right? Working towards a healthy mind and a healthy body. I hope you found this fun and different.
