5 lessons I learned from my autoimmune journey
You've likely heard me talk about my autoimmune journey before, but I always go back to that because it truly had such a profound effect on my life.
It's what started me on the path to healing myself from the inside out and eventually creating this brand. Over the years I've learned a lot of lessons, things I wish I figured out faster, but hey... better late than never, right?
Consistent Daily Steps Lead to Big Changes
When it came to reversing my autoimmune disease it was the changing of my eating habits and my daily collagen supplement that made the difference. 6+ years in and I feel better than I ever have. The ego wants to keep us safe so change feels threatening. Start with one small change and try it out for 30 days. Keeping small promises to ourselves is profound work. Celebrate every small change you make as a big win!
Eat Real Food, Drink Filtered Water, Get Lots of Sleep
The diet industry is an estimated $72B industry that keeps us gripped in body shame and a state of confusion about what to eat. Try eating real food for 30 days and eliminate processed and packaged foods. What we put on the end of our fork matters.
Sleep is when your body restores and heals itself. If you want to change how you look and feel try climbing into bed earlier. Aim to get 7-8 hours a night and notice how you feel after a week.
Are you staying hydrated? Drinking plenty of water will keep you feeling full and your cells and skin hydrated.
Mindset Work is Some of the Most Important Work We'll Ever Do
Do you have an inner mean girl that criticizes your body, your looks, your enough-ness?
How can you give yourself more compassion and grace when all those negative thoughts pop-up? Take out a journal and really question if all that negative self-talk is actually true. Be really intentional and selective about the content you consume on a daily basis via the news, social media and publications. Edit out anything that makes you feel less than.
Always seek the guidance of your doctor or other qualified health professional with any questions you may have regarding your health or a medical condition. Never disregard the advice of a medical professional, or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on this Website.
