I can personally feel myself emerging from a slump, almost like a spring flower in bloom. I’m shaking off old habits and replacing them with new ways of life. I’m sleeping better, eating better, feeling more energized, and most importantly, I feel continuous joy. I have shared my history of postpartum anxiety and my sleep struggles in the past. If publicly speaking about it helps one person, I will be happy. It is a lonely journey to walk through alone and I hope my story helps you know that you are not alone. What has changed for me recently? I’ve adopted a few new habits and I’ll speak about them now with an anxiety update.
As a college cheerleader and personal trainer for years, my weight was an unhealthy obsession. I spent years stressing over numbers, counting every single calorie. I let most of that go many years ago, but let’s face it, birthing three children did a number on my body. My regular exercise routine was no longer cutting it. Also, the lack of childcare to visit the gym was a struggle. Then I found Madeline Moves. I love her workouts and how easy I can use them at home or in the gym. I have noticed a big difference in my body and I am feeling stronger, which is so important to me.
I recently purchased an air fryer and I’m loving the ease of cooking and making healthier choices while using it. I shared my favorite salmon recipe here. I’m currently exploring new recipes and will share our favorites with you soon!
Six weeks ago, I started using Equilibria products and they have been life changing. I have been prescribed medication the use as needed for sleep and anxiety. I have not used a prescription in six weeks since starting the CBD products by Equilibria. Also, I am calm and less reactive to events in my life. For example, my car broke down right before school pickup. Normally, I would have been a ball of nerves, trying to figure out the best thing to do. Instead, I was able to calmly formulate a plan and execute it, without all of the anxiety. I feel much more focused and I’m finding more joy in my day as well.
