I know what it is like to be sick and tired of being sick and tired.
For fifteen years my life was a constant tornado of highs and lows followed up with failures and rock bottoms.
For fifteen years I lived a life in secret (well very few people truly knew what was going on), my days were spent sinking deeper into depression and desperately trying to figure out how to call for help.
Help that I never really got as I was battling a horrific eating disorder and a plethora of self-sabotaging thoughts and in that head of mine I was too scared to let anyone in, in fear of not knowing what would happen.
I think we all have had that feeling at one-time or another, that feeling of knowing that life is not going well, that we are not living, breathing and going about our days at our best.
Now I’m not talking about being a beauty pageant contestant walking the streets of your town looking all perfect, but rather I am speaking to your soul.
Having spent my fair share living at rock bottom, I know firsthand that there is hope, there is light at the end of the tunnel. BUT (and it’s a big BUT), you, yes YOU have to be willing to step up, show up and be willing to get uncomfortable in order to get where you want to go.
That uncomfortable feeling is you stepping out of the cycle you are in. Your cycle may not be like mine, it may not be a life-threatening eating disorder that took you from 132 pounds to 99 pounds in three months, it may not have landed you in the hospital with a major abdominal surgery because you could no longer control your actions, and you lived only on impulse.
But no matter what the first step to any change in your life, the first step to you feeling joy, happiness and freedom are you doing something different. Something different than what you are already doing, surrounding yourself with inspirational and motivational and supportive people and opportunities to continually hold you up rather than crush you down.
So if you are sick and tired of being sick and tired of too many thoughts living in that head of yours with nowhere to turn, then I want to welcome you to join me in clearing the mental clutter once and for all.
Here are 5 simple action steps you can take to keep clear of the clutter and stop the cycle of “sick and tired”!
- Try putting down the instant gratification devices like your phone, tablet, and computer. I recently read that an addiction to social media and the “likes” (so to speak) you get on these social sites give you the same endorphin boost as someone acting in addiction with drugs, alcohol, even an eating disorder. So put the device down and step away slowly!
- Take a step outside. When is the last time you stepped outside and just took a big breath in? Stopped for a moment and enjoyed the sunshine on your face. The breeze in your hair, the sound of the trees and mother nature at her finest? When we step away we can then step into what is in front of us more fully. Imagine what five minutes could do?
- Consider meditation. Don’t think of meditation as big and scary. As you just sitting there with the thoughts in your head-frustrated because there is nothing meditative about thinking about all the stuff you need to do. Meditation can be and is easy. It’s simply a matter of you stopping for a few minutes and breathing, unplugging and reducing yourself to nothing more than every inhale and exhale. Even for just 3 minutes. Here’s my favorite 3-minute meditation –>> HERE

I didn’t want to continue to live the way I was living. I was scared, and felt like I didn’t have the skills to actually make the changes I knew I needed to make to move into recovery, and live the life I knew I deserved!
