“Do you realise how much your body loves you? It’s always trying to keep you alive. It’s making sure you breathe while you sleep, stopping cuts from bleeding, fixing broken bones, finding ways to beat the illnesses that might get you. Your body literally loves you so much. It’s time you start loving it back."
Here are some of the things I did during my recovery that I believe made a MASSIVE difference.

Firstly, I’d really, really like to emphasise how incredible the human body is!! The body’s capacity for healing and repair is immense. You have to respect it, learn to listen to it. Be kind to your amazing body:
Sleeping is healing
Learn to recognise when your body needs a snooze. There is no shame in ‘giving-in’. Your body works hard for you, it needs to recuperate, gather more strength.
A well balanced nutrient dense diet will only aid recovery. You wouldn’t expect to drive your car with no fuel or engine oil would you?
This incredible medicine changed my life and is the reason Organic Source came to be. Visit Organic Source for products and a wealth of information.
Not all supplements are necessary especially if you’re eating a variety of nutrient dense foods, however, do some research there may be benefits in taking some.
Consider turning to and using alternative therapies. I’ve personally used, and still do, reiki, reflexology and acupuncture.
Stress is a part of life but try and find ways to minimise its impact on your life. Meditation can be incredibly useful.
Great for the body and mind! Find something you enjoy. If you’re unsure what you might like, have fun trying different activities and classes. Seek out a good Personal Trainer for support and guidance. For me, I love weights. I train 5 x per week.
So, so many benefits to practicing yoga. I urge you to add this to your health check list!
INNER BAD ASSERY TIPS
“The universe is exactly the size that your soul can encompass. Some people live in extremely small worlds, and some live in a world of infinite possibilities."
Here are some tips to help you find your inner bad assery:
Read inspiring autobiographies
Examples that inspired me hugely included Jordan Bone’s, ‘My Beautiful Struggle’ and Katie Piper’s ‘Beautiful’
Mindset is massively important
Learn about the power of manifestation and the awesomeness that is the universe. Books to read on this topic that I really enjoyed and still turn to include ‘The Universe has your back’, Gabrielle Bernstein; ‘You are a badass’ Jen Sincero and of course ‘The Secret’, Rhonda Byrne.
Follow spiritual and / or motivational pages on Instagram and Facebook
Ensure that your feed is flooded with positive reinforcement on the daily!
Surround yourself with people that believe in you
This is especially important on the days that you have self doubt. Because lets be honest, there are gonna be days that you have a wobble – it’s allowed!!
Occupy your mind with creative stuff
Colour-in, paint, write, knit, make things. There is something very therapeutic about going back to basics, nurse your inner child.
Build your vision board
Do NOT underestimate the power of such a simple, fun task. What do you want? How does your future look? Build it on your board, look at it daily. make sure it is somewhere visible. Or why not create more than 1. Put them in all of the places that you will see them.
Talk to yourself as if you were talking to the person you love most in the world
This is so important. We are all guilty of criticising ourselves, thinking and saying horrible things about ourselves. STOP!! Give yourself the same, caring, beautiful and encouraging words that you would give to the person you love most in the whole world.
