Hello my lovelies,
Hope you’re all well and you are enjoying your day today.
I’m going a little bit off topic with today’s THE AUDACIOUS BABE PODCAST episode and talk to you about a topic that is very important to me but doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with photography per se. Nonetheless it is important and affects all of us. And that is our health.
I’ve been thinking about my own health a lot lately and just thought I’d share with you a little bit about my struggles and the new journey I am on. But it also got me a thinking a lot about our behaviours as human beings towards our health. So please bear with me as this is an episode a bit out of the norm.
As we are currently in January, with the flood of New Year’s resolutions going on, I thought this topic would fit right in.
I bet a lot of you have New Year’s resolutions or have had them in the past that included something along the lines of getting healthy, fitter, eat better, drink more water, run 5k, stop smoking or whatever really.
Come January, we think this is going to be THE year we achieve that goal weight, fit into that dress or whatever we have set for ourselves come December 31st.
I’ve been there, done that every year.
And every year, I’ve let myself down by not committing to the resolutions. So a few years back I have stopped to give myself any New Year’s resolutions all together.
I think they are tricky as most of our resolutions probably won’t be finished and actually we might end up feeling worse about ourselves as once again we have let ourselves down. And that inner critic of ours can really go to town on that one!
Anyhow, coming back to the today’s topic. Our health.
Our bodies and our health are this most precious thing. They have to drag our asses around all day, have to perform the way we want them to and keep us alert and going 24/7. But yet, a lot of the time it is something we neglect the most. So this got me thinking: Why is that?
Why do we take care of our kids, which is quite obvious, our business, or anything else better than we most likely are treating our bodies? Why do we not take better care of ourselves?
And I’m not necessarily only talking physically, also mentally. Our mental health is as important as our physical one and yet once again we treat it with little to no respect.
This might not be true to all of you, but I’m just laying it out there. It was definitely true for me.
Why I’m telling you all this? Well it is something that I felt was needed to be voiced.
My point with this episode is just to maybe make us think more about our own bodies and minds. Just maybe by sharing my own struggles with you all, just maybe someone who is listening and is struggling with the same thing, gets a spark herself to change something in her life. Maybe not! Haha But at least I’ve got to share something honest and important to me with you all.
Listen to the full episode to hear about the story of my struggles, what epiphany I’ve had back in Nov 2017, what made me change my own ways and made me start this journey to a healthy me.
