I practice physical self-care pretty religiously...I workout regularly, I have my skin care routines, I definitely treat my skin and body right. But recently it’s occurred to me that I do not do the same when it comes my mental health. I am always pushing myself to do better, work harder, be more...and it’s exhausting. My anxiety has been so much worse the last year or so, and yet I would say I am the happiest I’ve been in years. It’s confusing and often hard on me and the people in my life. Today I had my first acupuncture appointment, something I have been meaning to try for the last 5 years or so. Let me tell you- one visit and I can already tell this is going to be a game changer for my life. I am doing everything I can to get my mental health back in tip top shape. Coming to terms and admitting my anxiety was so helpful for me in the last year, but now it’s time to realize I don’t have to live and suffer through it. I’ll keep you guys posted on what I’m doing and what’s working. 💓 Thanks for reading this far down, and being a part of this supportive community.
