On #worldmentalhealthday it's important to recognise those who keep you well ❤🤘💙 Recently my mental health has taken a little dip. Some unhealthy thinking patterns and coping strategies have reared their ugly head. Even as a psychologist who can rationalise these and draw on healthier strategies, there have been days where these have beaten me.
I am blessed to have found burlesque and my rockette family - seeing these beautiful people regularly and having the focus of the show has kept my head above water. Some days the restriction won but on the whole I've reminded myself my body needs fuel to dance with the passion and energy we all embrace.
Plus curves are sexy and I don't want to look a bag of bones on stage, which has got me eating nourishing foods as well as sneaky cake at rehearsals!
So thank you to my rockette family as well as my mum, friends and Edith for being there and keeping me relatively sane the past few weeks. Always make time to talk, and for cake!
