Social media does have its perks. As I am so pleased to say that the Mighty ( www.themighty.com ) came across a link to my blog via twitter and contacted me about reposting my 'I'm tired - The Code, Decoded' post.
They are a faboulous website where bloggers from all over the world suffering from anxiety, rare diseases, chronic illness, depression and disabilities have their posts reposted in order to help members gain knowledge, advice and find comfort in not being alone.
I am so thankful to Erin the editor getting in contact and allowing me to be apart and join this amazing community and platform.
I hope we can work together again very soon.
The link to the post I will add for you all. However take at my blog to find the post if you want to read it from here.
Take a look through the Mighty and if you do suffer from anxiety, chronic illness, rare disease and depression I do reccommend you read some of the posts written by suffers. They will for sure give you comfort and support.
Thank you again for you ongoing supporting.
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
