These last few months have been difficult, wouldn’t you agree?!! So many unknowns and so many changes. These dramatic changes make it difficult to eat healthy, exercise, and even get up in the morning. And now, more than ever, we MUST work on every aspect of our health—physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional! Don’t give in to the temptation to sit on the couch, eat ice cream, and give up. We have made it through several weeks of “shelter-in-place” and soon, we will be given the “all clear”! Let’s move forward! Let’s be positive, work together, and be stronger versions of ourselves! How do we do this? We problem-solve; we reach out to others for help; and we adapt!
This is not easy. I know how hard it is to move forward. You may or may not know that I was in a traumatic accident 2 ½ years ago. I was attacked by 2 dogs that mauled my spine. Fortunately, 2 people stopped to distract the dogs and rescue me. My physical wounds healed, but I was later diagnosed with PTSD. This mental disease affected me so deeply, that I almost lost my business, my mental health, and much of my physical health. How did I move forward? I reached out to God for strength; I created a team of health professions to work on my health; and I reached out to friends and family for support. I forced myself to wake up and go to work. Each day I learned more about what my body needed to heal, removed the tasks and responsibilities that held me back, and learned to trust God to take care of the rest. And with time, I healed and my business recovered! I’m not the same as I used to be, but I am stronger because of it! And because of what I have gone through due to this accident, I know I will make it through the struggles of COVID-19! I will use the same techniques I used to fight PTSD to move forward and adapt to our new world.
Do you have something you are struggling with? If you suffer with mental health, I would recommend a psychologist. But, if you need someone to talk to about your daily health routine, please let me know. For the past 14 years, I have worked with people who have obstacles. Obstacles that make it difficult to move forward with healthy eating and exercise. I’m good at problem solving and taking it “one step at a time”. I won’t just count your squats. I’ll be your friend and won’t give up on you. We will have fun and build on each victorious step that you take!
