It’s pretty safe to say that since Sophie was born my life has changed a lot!
There is basically no free time any more, and rather than just having to think about myself I’ve now someone else I need to keep alive on a daily basis!
When I compare my life now to 6 months ago, its barely recognisable
(for the better of course, her smile melts my heart every day but each day is also a whole lot tougher!).
Change like this has been unavoidable
(aside from simply not getting Donna pregnant!)
But many people can be terrified of any kind of change whatsoever.
For example, if you want your health to change, what are you doing to change to achieve that?
What needs to happen for you to have more energy, and less visits to the toilet?
Chances are you aren’t quite sure.
It can be pretty overwhelming to think about where to start with something like that can’t it?
I’m a big fan of the saying…
“If nothing changes, then nothing changes”.
So often I see people doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result…
(relying SOLELY on medication to help turn their health around, for example…
…and no that doesn’t mean stopping medication, but it does mean that solely relying on that alone almost certainly won’t leave you feeling good long term as it isn’t focused on building your health or getting to the bottom of your problems).
If you want to finally stop the constant cycle of flare, remission, flare, remission, flare and want to feel better and more energetic than ever, then something HAS to change.
Of that there can be no doubt.
So, what are you going to change today to help start moving you in the right direction?
It could be something as simple as planning your meals for the week ahead so you’re never stuck on what to eat at the last minute.
Or if you know stress to be a problem for you perhaps you as going to set a specific time each day (even if only 10 minutes) that is focused solely on allowing you to relax and reduce your stress levels
(perhaps a nice walk in the country, or 10 mins deep breathing, for example).
If you find you struggle to sleep through the night (which can have a HUGE impact on your health) then perhaps you’ll take steps to reduce that…
…that might be something such as making sure you are in bed by 10.30pm each night this week, and will have turned off the TV, computer and mobile phone at least an hour before
(as the light from those can have a really bad effect on the quality of your sleep).
I could go on but hopefully you get the picture.
Even just the smallest, simple step is a positive change in the right direction.
Give it a go.
I’d love to know what you decide.
p.s. one other positive change may be to order some supplements to help start turning things around. While supplements certainly aren’t the only thing that someone needs for better health (just get in touch with me if you’d like to work together over a period of months on a 1:1 programme), they can make a massive difference, and sometimes very quickly. You can check out our full range here www.autoimmuneinstitute.com/collections/all-products .
They all come with a 90 day money-back guarantee so if you did give them a try and didn’t feel they were a positive change for you just let us know and we’ll refund you.
