I mentioned last post I was struggling for a while weeks.
It came as a surprise because I have been doing really well overall.
This wasn’t full of suicidal thoughts or anything like that, thankfully. I’ve been there for sure!
Then it all came to a head last week and I was SO overwhelmed and depressed. This was like grief. It felt like someone I loved had just died. I was just crying and crying. Hyperventilating. A hot mess!
While I was NOT okay, I did have breakthrough.
What do I mean?
Well, the past few weeks have gotten increasingly worse so I called a Christian counselor and had an appointment. She gave me a few personal tasks to complete.
Those all helped a lot and I’m still doing some of them, like journal my feelings every day. (Which is really helpful by the way!)
There are 3 things that are imperative to help us battle through these bad mental times.
1. Deal with the past. Don’t ignore it. The counselor is helping me with my past that I have buried so deep and never dealt with. Let’s move on!
2. Exercise. Even walking for 20 minutes a day can help SO much.
3. Eat HEALTHY. I really recommend Eat to Beat Depression and Anxiety by Dr. Drew Ramsey. One thing I learned a while back was to choose foods that naturally boost serotonin!
Over the next 3 weeks I will be doing a deep dive into those 3 points. So y’all make sure to subscribe so you won’t miss all 3 parts.
We want you happy, healthy and functioning WELL!!
Blessings and Love,
