Yesterday I posted this summary of my second week on my healthy eating plan. Basically it went well, very well =) In only two weeks my anxiety has started to reduce and I feel generally healthier. I wasn’t expecting results this quickly, I wasn’t even sure it would work. But it is starting to work and I will be continuing now for the foreseeable future. After all if you find something that works, stick with it!
So that got me thinking about where to take the blog from here. I know that quite a few people were intrigued by the idea of reducing anxiety through healthy eating and many people have been following my progress. My next step is to make a guide so that anyone who would like to make their own anti-anxiety eating plan can. I’m also going to test and post a lot more recipes and make a recipe index =)
Those are my immediate plans but in the future I also want to add exercise and other practices such as meditation into the mix. Healthy eating is part of the puzzle but teamed with exercise it should hopefully reduce anxiety even further. The long term goal for this blog is to turn it into a useful resource for others suffering from anxiety and other mental health conditions such as depression. I’m starting to think that diet and exercise could be a hugely underrated part of recovery for mental health conditions. If my blog can help just one person, then I know that it is worthwhile! The long term goal for myself is to get off my anxiety medication. I know it will take a lot of time and determination but I’m sure I can do it!
So those are my plans. I would love to get your opinion, comment below if you have any ideas, questions or comments.
