Episode 6

Finding a Positive Mindset to a Healthier Life

In this week's show, I want to talk about how I lost over 30lbs in 8 weeks, and how a positive mindset helped me to a healthier life, and the impact that can have on your mental health.

I'll be honest - it wasn't easy. There were a lot of things I had to give up, or reduce greatly, while adding things to my diet and lifestyle that I didn't necessarily want to add.

But having changed my mindset, and gone through the 8 week program, I've definitely noticed an impact on my overall health - mental as well as physical.

This is something I'll dive into more on future shows, but today I want to give you an idea of what I went through, and how you can follow some of the steps I took if you want to make a physical change in your life.

For more resources, please visit the Mental Health and Me website, where you'll find practical self-care and wellness tips to help other mental health sufferers and their loved ones cope.

You can also connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Let's keep the conversation going.
