After a year of lockdowns, uncertainty, and madness, I’m sharing eight healthy habits I have incorporated into my life that have really changed me and improved my mindset.
Stress; it’s an inevitable part of our lives, but being constantly stressed out isn’t. The last 12 months have been heavy, there’s no doubting that. Lately, I’ve been feeling guilty whenever I’m stressed. To help eliminate the guilt, I’ve been trying to limit the stress, but what does one do when feeling stressed? How can we prevent stress from taking over out lives? Well, try the following ideas!
In a space that’s so overwhelming, I’m passionate about creating a little area where healing the mind, body, and soul, is at the heart. A platform where I can share with you what I have learnt over the years in the most honest, transparent, and vulnerable way - it’s about time I get super personal with you. I would love nothing more than for you to take this journey with me and discover how you can grow through what you go through and become the conscious creator of your life.
This year I realised that I’m always kind to others yet I’m so quick to drag myself down. The things I say to myself I would never say about anyone else. It’s time to appreciate myself in the same ways I appreciate everyone else. I am changing in a way that lets the world know that I am enough. I am a strong, intelligent, kind, independent, and caring woman but most importantly, I am me.
I understand you feel as though the world has broken you and has left you shattered and destroyed. I understand you feel completely withdrawn from life. I understand you loathe yourself and the choices you’ve made. I understand you resent the fact you feel forced to live as a shell of who you should be. I understand why you pray to God wanting to know the answer for why you are still living despite your insides feel like they are decaying.
You’ve taught me that no matter what I, or others, go through, whether it’s a mental illness, being bullied at school, self harming, having a substance abuse issue or an eating disorder, not to be afraid to ask for help. You helped me save my own life, and I will always be extremely thankful.
I walked into the room unaware of what a counselling session really was. Over the course of the sessions I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression – which I knew very little about then. I just thought it was part of who I was, part of being a shy, quiet person. I understood that everyone has nerves and can get overwhelmed before doing a presentation in front of the class, I simply thought for someone who had experienced so much at once that it was normal. I guess though I wasn’t being completely honest with myself.
