Fitness wise, that can be an easy win. You'll probably struggle to get into it at first, but you've just got to find a sport/activity that you enjoy and stick with it. Most things like that are near enough free (maybe with a bit of an upfront cost) and once you start seeing results I guarantee you'll feel amazing.

And for the love of god don't think like this. I'm not going to say you can become the next Señor Spielbergo if you put you're mind to it, but having something to work toward in your life no matter how small (making a super low budget short film) or large (making a career out of it) gives you a drive, which is something that has kept me happy and positive for a very long time now. I remember you made those short horror films ages ago. The one where you scared your mum and the one where you cut yourself some cheese were hilarious. You should do more of that stuff.
Lovely policy in action. Obviously they don't give a strawberry float as it won't effect those who have money to fall back on - a pretty reprehensible thing to save a little of the taxpayers' money on, all in all.

Real talk. I think people underestimate the correlation between good physical health and good mental health. Getting fit not only makes you feel better all round, but that hour or two at the gym every other evening can absolutely take your mind off stuff that's bothering you far better than alcohol or anything else can
For some reason over the past few years I've developed a bit of anxiety when driving and I'm a bit shaken up as tonight is the closest I've come to having a crash in a long time. I'm would just like some opinions to know if I did anything wrong as these sorts of things play on mind for a long time.
I was on a two lane motorway that was merging into another two lane motorway to become a three lane motorway. I was travelling in what is usually the slow lane that becomes the middle lane. I'm just going along and suddenly I see a car in the merging lane right beside me just before they effectively run out of road so I put started to accelerate to make room like you normally would if someone is on a slip road and you can't go in the outside lane. The other car keeps going, getting right beside me before slamming on their brakes and beeping.
The thing is that I can't see that I did anything wrong? In my mind if you're in the lane that is merging, you have a better view of what is beside you so it's up to you to regulate your speed accordingly. I didn't see the car at the point when the roads start to merge so they were either tanking along or we were both unlucky that we ended up travelling at the same speed next to each other. Either way I still think it's their fault which actually gooseberry fools me up more because what can you do to stop someone driving into the side of you?
