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!

101 self care suggestions (link)

I found THIS post the previous day and it has 101 self care suggestions for when it all feels like too much... and i thought i would share it because sometimes we all need a reminder and some tips on how to cope during bad days.

Link to post: http://themighty.com/2016/04/self-care-ideas-for-a-bad-day/


Some of my favourite things during a bad day is to

1) Tune out and turn off social media and just watch a film or series. Allow myself to just lie in bed and do nothing.
2)Go for a walk
3) Listen to a podcast
4)Make myself a delicious snack or meal, or bake or cook
5) Buy my favourite food (As long as you dont use food to cope emotionally or abuse food this can be a nice idea, a treat. But if you eat to cope with emotions it might not be the best idea)
6) Try go to sleep as early as possible
7) Take a long shower and wash my hair, face, use a face mask and pamper myself
8) Clean my room/the apartment
9) Read a good book or an article
10) Scroll through Tumblr or positive blogs/sites
11) Look at funny videos
12) Look at cute dog gifs or videos
13) Be kind to myself!!


Just some of my best self care tips.... feel free to share your best self care tips :):)

  1. Having a good sort out works for me, tidying and generally getting rid of things I no longer need/use. Books are my "thing" - I tend to hoard books even though I have read them several times and are unlikely to read them again, so every now and then I sort through them and take them to the charity shop or book bank. That always makes me feel better - and of course makes room for me to get more!
