MOST RECENT

It happened. The scale went UP. By 10 whole freaking pounds! 🙈 And you know what? I don't care. Not one bit and that's for a few reasons:
.
1. The scale tells me nothing more than my gravitational pull on the planet. Not my worth, not my confidence, not my strengths.
.
2. The scale is a tool that gives feedback in the form of numbers. If it goes up, that's likely a clue that A.) I probably gained some muscle mass with all those weights I toss around and B.) There is probably something in my lifestyle that's making it go up.
.
3. I have the tools, mindset, and knowledge to make healthy changes. I've done it before and I'll do it again - a positive outlook to keep me focused and in good space, color-coded portion control containers to keep me on track with my food, my daily workouts, and strong community of friends who cheer me on.
.
4. I choose to see this as an opportunity to do better, to do things differently, to challenge myself. That is EXCITING!
.
I'm choosing not to dwell on why I put on a few - maybe it's my recent switch to going meat-free, maybe it's the workouts I skipped the past few weeks, maybe it's dipping into one too many Oreos. Whatever it is, I do not care. Instead, I'm showing up for myself and getting back on track - doing my daily workouts, eating on plan, and making a firm decision that the only way is forward.
.
I'm starting fresh today and I'd love for you to join me! DM me and we can chat for FREE about your goals and how we can meet them together. I have more than a few experiences I could share.

Sometimes you wake up and just feel really sad. The idea isn’t to banish the sadness, but to make it easier to cope with. That’s my excuse for having an entire cupboard full of various types of tea/hot drinks. #tea #teahag #generalizedanxietydisorder

Has your head ever been filled with one single thought, or a string of thoughts, that just keep repeating… and repeating… and repeating themselves?

The process of continuously thinking about the same thoughts, which tend to be sad or dark, is called “rumination.” A habit of rumination can be dangerous to your mental health as it can prolong or intensify depression as well as impair your ability to think and process emotions. It may also cause you to feel isolated and can, in reality, push people away

Break the circle
Distract yourself
Set new goals
Challenge those thoughts
Sort for alternative thoughts
Seek help if need be... 🤗

This is my new fav store... not that I’ve actually bought anything from here! ☺️
.
It’s more that I get to give all my unwanted items away here, and that fills me with SO. MUCH. JOY 😌
In the past year I have become obsessed with minimalist living, I love giving to a shop that helps people less fortunate within the community but it’s also just a peaceful thing for me to get rid of “stuff” - toys, spare furniture, clothes, kitchen items I don’t use. Anything I find in my house that doesn’t bring me joy or serves a useful purpose finds its way here 🙌🏽
.
I probably visit this place once a month or more lately. I actually love to give my stuff away and the more I do, the more I see the strong correlation between holding on to “things”, cluttered, materialistic living and anxiety 🤯 I’m loving owning less stuff, I can’t wait to own less! It’s truly so freeing and now that my focus is off needing all “the things” to make me happy, I get to spend more time and money on doing fun stuff with the people I love 💕

Didn’t get much done today - but I’m ok with it - and it’s ok if that’s all you did today too
Im so grateful to be able to be a full time #reseller and have these days were I can just relax

Anxiety and medication update: .
.
.
As I’ve mentioned in my stories recently, I am currently reducing my dose of Prozac, as a step towards eventually being medication free. I’ve cut my dose in half, and I’m currently on day 5 of 10mg. .
.
.
I’ve definitely been struggling with withdrawals from being on a lower dose. One thing that has helped me immensely is switching my dose to the morning rather than taking it before bed. The switch in timing causes me to experience most of my withdrawal symptoms in the evening and while I am sleeping, rather than during the day while I’m studying. .
.
.
So far I’ve been feeling better than I expected. I’ve been experiencing some physical symptoms of anxiety such as shakiness, tight chest, and nauseousness, but my head has been in a good space despite this. I haven’t had a panic attack yet during the dose change, and I haven’t felt overwhelmed by anxiety, or depression. .
.
.
I hope that I can stay steady on my 10mg, and that the physical withdrawal symptoms will improve soon! .

I try really hard to maintain positivity. I try really hard to keep my anxiety at bay. I’d like to think I’ve done a pretty okay job.
But, I also want to maintain transparency. While I do try really hard to be positive, I don’t want people thinking that I think life is perfect or that I think that my anxiety is gone. I know it will never be gone.
I’m reminded of it every night.

Why every night, you ask?

I’m reminded of it every night because my anxiety spikes while getting ready for bed. I’m not sure why. I haven’t figured it out yet.
When I sleep on the couch, or fall asleep randomly on the couch, I’m fine. It’s the actual act of getting ready for bed. Getting up, brushing my teeth, taking my meds, changing, getting everything ready for the next day, all of that.
For some reason, it causes me immense anxiety. My heart rate spikes, it’s harder to breathe, and immensely difficult to fall asleep.
I’m entirely confused as to why this goes on, but I have noticed I sleep@on the couch far more because of it. :( #generalizedanxietydisorder #anxietyawareness #bedtimeritual #opentosuggestions #anyhelp? #imeditate #idrinktea #idodeepbreathing
