At the beginning of the year, I decided it was going to be a year of getting myself back/finding myself/and focusing on my mind, body, and soul. The first part of this year was digging deep inside myself and finding purpose again, and healing and focusing on me getting better. I was having a nervous breakdown (this was my second one), and I knew I needed to do something before the dark hole engulfed me.
So I started to fight my way out. Stress is real, something we all face, but I have learned that it is how we respond to it. We can let it eat us up, or we can fight back. After seeing a psychologist for a number of months, a massage therapist and a naturopath, I started to win myself back. My goal was to focus on relaxing for the first 6 months (because I was wound up pretty tight) lol, and I accomplished that….Now I want you to join me on my next 6 months.
Being stressed includes a lot of things…but really the basics are sleep, meditation to keep calm, and diet. So I want to invite you on the second part of my journey…..diet!!!! I know it is a dirty four letter word LOL. Recently I went to my Dr. and got an endoscopy and colonoscopy done….not the highlight of my day but I did feel lighter! (the best I had felt in a while) hahaha. I was diagnosed with IBS which most people probably have now a days because of all the stress. It can be very uncomfortable, a lot of pain, and hard to eat even certain healthy foods.
Starting July 2nd I will be starting a FODMAPS diet which will hopefully help immensely!!! I know that the foods we eat are related to stress, bad foods in=stressed out! So with my naturopath by my side I am starting this adventure to health and I would love for you to be part of it:) I was going to avoid blogging about it because anyone who has followed a diet knows that we don’t always have good days, but I want to be as transparent as possible. Sometimes eating healthy food sucks…but I want a better stress less life:) Will you join me on my journey?
So stay tuned….:)
