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!

Taking some mental relax time

Caught in the bubble of rain, coldness and stress it can be easy to lose yourself and find your mental thoughts as well asmotivation start fading away. I dont want to be caught in that bubble, ive been there far too many times before and instead i am not going to let the weather or stress bring me down, so i have made today a positive day! The classes have flown by and i have gotten work done, but not felt bad when i wasnt as productive as i could have been. Afterall i am only human and i dont need to spend every moment being productive, which is something i need to remind myself more often. With all these things to do all the time, always have emails to read and things to write and deadlines to remember it's easy to forget about all the other things like taking care of myself and actually taking a break.

Which is what i did when i came home from school today.I made myself waffles which i had been craving and then I realised that the work i needed to do could wait. I finished off my french text, sent it in and then decided to check out from my school thoughts which was exactly what i needed. To just sit and talk with my family, not have my thoughts wander to that english essay i needed to write or to check my phone every 10 minutes. Instead be able to lie in bed and watch a series, not worry about other things. It was nice to have some mental and physical rest, however it wasnt until after i had put on my pyjamas that i realised i had a presentation tomorrow first thing -_-' Ooopps. Hahah, luckily i have the presentation speech and powerpoint done, just that i havent learned it or timed it at all. So that kind of ruined my relaxing evening, but i am going to spend some time rehearsing and then know i have done my best :)
   No need to worry or stress, instead take things as they come. Stress has so many negative affects and messes with both my body and mind so i want to avoid it as much as i can. Taking mental breaks and relaxing is one of the best ways to do that, as well as running and exercise :)

What are your favourite ways to destress ? :)


  1. You have such a Daisy ! ! I imagine Daisy must also be a great stress-reliever :)

    I'm doing an exchange-studies year and this week we have easter holidays at the uni, so I could come home to Estonia. I feel it will be a great de-stress week - the weather outside is terrible and my family was sorry about it today when I arrived, but I told them that's kind of what I came here for - just to relax at home with my close ones :) So for me just relaxing at home, unplugging myself from all duties is a great stress relief - just cooking for the family, reading, listening to good music, watching a good movie, doing some yoga... I feel it also helps me collect energy for future times when I need it.

    We all need an "unplug" moment sometimes. And remember, be gentle with yourself - you're doing the best you can.

  3. looks like a proper 'relaxing-snack' :) what is the brown stuff on the side?

  4. Your waffles look so light and moist and fluffy! What is your recipe? I love how thin they are as opposed to thicker, crispier ones.

    1. I used a pancake mix and just added an egg and water :) I love the thin crispy ones, however these dont really turn crispy... more fluffy which is still delicious :)
