It’s National Fitness Day in the UK and although I’m not one for exercise, I am one for trying to create a healthier state of mind – which is mind fitness if you ask me!
For those of you that know me, you will know I have struggled with my mental health over the last couple of years. Over the last few months, I have believed that my mental state has been fit enough to come off my prescribed medication. What I didn’t realise, was like any exercise, as soon as you stop doing what you were doing for a period of time, you become physically weaker. This is the same with mental health. I thought I could come off my tablets and be back to normal. I didn’t consider the changes I would need to make to my lifestyle before and after this decision to ensure the best possible outcome.
Anyway, unfortunately for me, but fortunately for those around me, I am back on my tablets and am starting the journey to a fitter and healthier mind.
I am reading a book at the moment by Eva Woods, called How to be Happy. Although I haven’t finished this yet, I am learning a lot of life lessons from it and would like to start the little challenge that they are doing to better themselves and their quality of life with a 100 happy day challenge.
As of today, I am going to use my Instagram to post and do 1 thing per day that makes me happy.
Who is with me?
