I recently posted about how having a healthy body would, hopefully, in turn create a healthy mind, however, I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive. I believe a healthy mind is incredibly important in trying to achieving an overall balanced lifestyle.
In my last post I admitted how I’m starting therapy (is that a collective sigh of relief I hear?), I don’t know why I waited, really. I’ve come to realise, as my grief is bubbling outward rather than inward, that I am getting a lot of comfort from food. I want to stop these bad habits as soon as possible.
It’s hard to stay motivated and make good choices while you are struggling to keep your shit together and get through the day, but I’m trying. When I feel happy I make good choices, when I’m feeling sad I don’t. It’s as simple as that.
I hope I gain some acceptance as I start therapy. I want to be proud of my body, I want to like myself again.
Until next time,
