Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Finding your place of calm

Now a days life in general is very fast paced... you are expected to do everything at once, answer every message, call and email you get right away. You need to be at 5 different places at the same time, you have deadlines, dates to remember and important meetings to go to. With all the rushing every where, having to do so much everyday, or feeling like you need to do much even if that may not be the case it can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed. Feelings of panic and can even lead to burning out if you do too much at once.

It is important to find a place of serenity, of calm and peace within yourself. To take a few moments each day to just try to disconnect with everything going on in life and in your head.

You can do this in different ways, such as yoga, meditation, sitting quietly somewhere where its quiet and not so messy. Reading or writing. Listening to calming music or even an audio book. So im people find it meditative to just sit and draw.

Doing these types of actions, where you try to not think so much, not try to analyze or solve a solution or worry about whats happening tomorrow or later today. But to just disconnect from those thoughts, it can be hard. I am an overthinker and over analyzer, so i like to think and analyze things. But by learning to take a few moments each day where i try to not worry about those things in my head, not feel stressed or panicked about whats going on in my head. But just breathing.

Having this skill or being able to cope and de stress in hectic or stressful situations is very valuable and its great for everyone to work on. But in recovery it will be very helpful if you can learn to try to disconnect your panic and to just breathe and think rationally when it comes to tough situations.

So this is something you can all have as a goal to work on :)
