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!

Changing the negatives to the positives

Image result for positive mindset


Good morning everyone :)

Tuesday morning and i woke up and had a rather negative mindset where i just wanted to complain about everything.... "it's getting colder", "its getting darker", "i have a stomach ache", "i dont want to do my presentation", "im tired" etc etc Waking up and feeling negative is never a good start and just makes me feel tired and unmotivated for the rest of the day, so instead i decided to change my thinking.

Autumn and winter means warmer clothes and can use my heating blanket and walk around with afluffy night gown on inside. Autumn/winter means that it is ok to wear fluffy scarves and big jumpers outside - i can wear all dark and grey clothes and its normal!
It may be getting darker, but that just means that i have to embrace the hours when it is bright outside! And once my presentation is done today i have a day off from school and school work tomorrow before my next course begins on Thursday. It may be hard to breathe and i feel tired and heavy, but once ive gone for a walk i know i will feel much better.

I could complain about everything, but i know that isnt helpful and definitely wont lead to a great day. So instead, starting my day with positive thinking, coffee and a morning walk while listening to a podcast.  The best way to start the day according to me.

Today might not be the best day ever, but there is something great in everyday.

I hope that all of you manage to change your negative thoughts into positive ones and try to find something good about yourself and your day. Those negative thoughts and negative vibes wont lead to anything positive.

Today, make sure to smile or laugh. Try to get some fresh air. Drink enough water and think positive. Do something today that will bring you closer to your goals, a small step forward makes a difference :)

  1. Well done you for seeing the positive and turning your thoughts around :) I try but don`t always succeed. Hope you are feeling ok today, both mentally and physically and your day gets brighter for you as it goes on.
    I have noticed how its getting dark earlier and earlier in the evenings - where has our summer gone?? And the man in the shop yesterday reminded me it would soon be Christmas! The shops have already started getting Christmas food on the shelves - I suppose some people like to start early?
    But we have Halloween and guy fawkes night to look forward to first. The dark evenings mean I can have an early hot bath and put my pyjamas on without feeling guilty for just wanting to curl up infront the tv! And the cooler weather means I get to have things like stew or casseroles for tea - made extra yummy because all the winter veg is now appearing in the shops. Also, tv gets better in the autumn months so lots of new series to look forward to :)
    Those are some of my positive thoughts for the day!

  2. This was beautiful! Such a nice post and such an easy way of looking at it and helping change your mood. I've found this really helpful, changing the way you look at different thoughts from a negative to a positive. I also love that quote at the end!

    Thanks
