First of all I want to shout out a huge THANK YOU to everyone who showed their support through my last post.
You have no idea how much your comments and kind words mean to me.
Lately I have been a little extremely slack on my blog posts, and today’s post will shed light as to why I haven’t been as frequent as what I would like to be.
One of the things I am currently working on is getting shit done.
Let me explain…
I am a fantastic procrastinator. When there is something that I know needs to be done but I don’t want to do it, I simply put it off.
Apart from the issue that some things never get done, the real problem is that I get so much anxiety about the tasks not getting done. I then create multiple problems within that one task which could have been rectified before any other problems could occur if I didn’t put it off in the first place!
When I’m stressed about certain tasks and issues I tend to change my focus away from it and head towards something much worse; body image.
It’s extremely common for people who suffer/suffered from an eating disorder to slip into unhealthy habits when times are tough.
Usually when you are in a stressful situation, you don’t have much control over it. By listening to ED’s voice and becoming strict with your diet makes you feel like you have at least some control within your life.
It’s important to know that it’s the eating disorder that gives you the false idea that controlling what you eat will help control other areas within your life.
For the past couple of months I have focused a lot more time and effort into my physical health, and haven’t spent enough time on my inner wellbeing.
Don’t get me wrong, I am extremely proud that I have finally reached my goal weight and got my period (you can read about it here) but I found that neglecting the inner health, there is now a build up of emotional work to catch up on so I don’t fall back into ED’s habits.
I am a huge believer that your inner wellbeing is the most important factor when it comes to over-all health. Too often people think that disease and illness come from external factors, but I truly believe that your mind is the biggest influence.
When I write on The Raw Serenity, I feel as though I am brought back to reality. I focus on how I am feeling and what is authentic to me. I tend to respect and listen to what my body is telling me and appreciate everything it has done for me. That is what The Raw Serenity it all about.
If you are a regular reader, you would be aware that at the end of last year I quite all drama in my life.
Only happy and positive people and experiences were welcome in my life. By manifesting this desire I now have a very positive network of friends that help keep negative thoughts at bay but I also find that when I need an instant hit of positivity I go straight to my Pinterest boards.
I find by just looking at my boards that I have created helps bring me back to reality and stops the negativity. I also find some pictures of animals impossible not to laugh at!
My next post is a delicious salad I recently created. It is packed full of flavours, textures and superfoods to support your mind and body.
Be kind to yourself,
