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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Less stress = more energy

Its crazy how no stress makes such a HUGE difference to my mood and energy and life in general!! Ive had my break for 4 days now and i feel like a complete different person compared to when i am in school. Despite sleeping the same amount of hours as when i am in school (or maybe an hour more or so) i still have so much more energy. I feel happier, i have more energy, i have more time. I feel motivated in more aspects of my life!! I feel stronger and more motivated at the gym, i have time and energy to go for long runs which i love and am feeling so motivated for summer and running in the sun!
   I feel so relaxed, happy and energetic and i love it. And its just because i dont feel stressed, i have work to do which i havent even attempted to begin with, but i feel i might just take this whole week and not care about it at all. Because that is what i mentally need... to not focus on school or put stress or pressure on myself to constantly do so many hours of work all the time. Giving myself a mental school break is important and focusing on other things in my life. Because when im in school its 100% focus on school and work the other things such as training, friends, boyfriend, family, me time... they have to work around my school schedule and studying schedule. But now i have more time and its so nice :)
  hahaha i just felt i needed to write this out! Share my positivity and energy, because its such a good feeling and try to remind you all to not stress so much because its not good at all. This is something i need to learn and remember when i am actually stressed, not when i am feeling relaxed!!!

Today i had time to do an awesome workout with my sister - aeroboxing and my strength and energy was there 110% and it felt awesome, and my sister enjoyed it aswell which is great! And this evening im going to my mums yoga - time for some mindfulness and try to do yoga... even if its just once a month or so, its something :)
 
And of course when i have a break from school i have time to prepare delicious food so sweet potatoe cubes, grilled chicken, salad & 2 mudcake muffins afterwards!







I hope you all have a lovely Tuesday :) And remember to think positive in everything you do! If you are going through tough times, it can get better!!!

And i will answer emails as soon as i get chance, hopefully sometime this week though im enjoying my break spending time with friends, A, family, working out etc!!
