Feeling anxious in isolation?
Many of us are feeling so out of control right now - especially without our usual schedules, exercise routines and eating habits. Anxiety can start to creep up on us without this structure and normality. I’m a serial perfectionist with myself and find I can be SO hard on myself when my usual routine is taken away from me!
So I wanted to reach out and say please, don’t feel alone. We are all trying to adjust to this new normal. Allow yourself to feel all your emotions: sadness, moodiness, sensitivity, loving, anger and disappointment. Accepting and surrendering to these emotions actually calms them a little. I promise you are not alone! 💖
This will pass. I hope JSHealth can help you find that little bit of balance and reassurance during this journey. As a nutritionist, what I know for sure is that the small tweaks, adjustments and goals are more powerful than you can imagine. Just focus on making 1-2 small healthy additions each week.
So for this long weekend, I encourage you to implement some of these tips to nurture yourself and nourish your mental health:
Switch your phone off by 8:30pm
Move your body in ways you love for 20 minutes daily - try the NEW workouts which just landed in the JSHealth App if you need some inspo!
Cook a nourishing, wholesome meal
Facetime your loved ones! Even if you can't be with them this weekend, you can still connect!
Get some fresh air! Set aside time each day to go for a walk around the block, or through the park!
Remove the pressure! Don't expect yourself to feel happy, positive and energetic at all times - it's okay to have down, unproductive moments!
Take time to rest! Watch your favourite Netflix show or movie (can recommend Bridesmaids!!), or read a book, and enjoy some time out.
We are here for you! Sending love angels! 💖
