A change for the better!

Hey guys, this is my first content piece, (it’s going to be nothing but open and honest…) so what better way to start than with how I changed my health and lifestyle for the better!

In 2015 (back when I was in school) I was under an unnecessary amount of stress, eating a poor diet and doing very minimal excerise, which all lead to me feeling absolutely terrible in myself, especially with all the problems that followed e.g bad complexion, mental breakdowns, low energy, low self esteem, anxiety and depression. I was basically the worst version of myself. That’s when I knew I had to change something! Google became my best friend at this point, you know those late night searches, self diagnosing, until stupid 0’clock… (yep that was pretty much my life then).

That was until I became really interested in health and nutrition, it literally took over a big part of my life (in a positive way) and still does to this day. I focussed on changing my diet, lifestyle and mindset, it was a challenge, but one I was willing to try… Changing my diet I personally found relatively easy, it was keeping a positive mindset and having a stress free lifestyle that I found the most challenging. However having a passion for something really helped me with staying positive, (especially when I can be my own worst critic). Being homeschooled pretty much solved the stress problem, that and actually taking time to unwind and relax now and then. I obviously still have my good and bad days now, but who doesn’t right?

  3. Good first post, for sure!
    I think, often, we take for granted how important a good diet can be…I know I have taken it for granted. I’m currently trying to re-invent myself with my own diet. I’m making slow progress, but progress IS being made.

  7. Absolutely love it! I also really love the quote you put at the end too! Believing in yourself to do great things is everything, and a lot of people these days let other people, things, and obstacles limit them, but in your case, you didn’t! I’m not quite sure what your dream is, since you didn’t quite state it in your post, but whatever it is, just go for it!

  8. that there have been times that I have almost sold all of them except for 1 (and if I did that it would be my tenor) and focus strictly on it. But then I remember the opportunities I have had and that I would have missed and then it’s back to trying to find some practice time balance between 3 saxes, clarinet, flute and pinoklo.Thaccs, Bret, for including links like this.
