Body: "I felt more anxious pre lockdown"
I have been stumbling on the reasons why my body acceptance journey has been very up and down throughout the years.
✨Why did I yoyo diet?
✨Why did I always feel anxious when choosing outfits
🔥But even more important; Why have I felt a major shift during a lockdown?
✨To answer the first two questions
✨I bounced around and felt anxious because I was on the seek for approval and finding items that "flatter me" "shape me well" and that racked my brain and made me feel sick to my stomach at the thought of getting ready for big events.
But then the world was on hold, no events, no meetings, no more thinking "how can I hide myself"
Of course, I would rater the world not shut down and people not lose their lives that's not my point; my point is I have been given time to stop, think and reflect on my wellbeing and what the underlying problem is.
The problem is: I have been so busy focusing on events and meetings and other plans where I will be seen that it clouded my mind from the main goal of my body love journey.
We allow our world go 1000 miles an hour no wonder we are stuck on the anxious train.
🖤It's has been around a month since I have promised myself stick to a mourning routine and embrace every day as it comes whilst committing to a daily action which will add more love and get the changes I desire in life.
🖤Looking forward to the future is good but not so far forward you lose who you are, what you are working towards and what is happening in the NOW.
🖤A Morning routine has blessed me with space to think, reflect and push forward - I have worked on something that works for me that will continue after lockdown and that is one of my non-negotiables.
Have you adopted a morning routine?
How is your self-love journey coming along?
