“Health and lifestyle advice for beautifully imperfect women like us”
There are days when you wish you could feel better. Even a tiny bit better…
You’d glow with health, with love and with enthusiasm and feel utterly blessed because you have so many wonderful things in your life to be thankful for.
You’d deal with problems, confrontations and challenges with grace and finally have that self-doubt, those anxious thoughts and those low moods under control.
You’d feel young, slim and sexy again, no matter what your ‘real’ age. You’d leap out of bed with a spring in your step and feel eager to see what the day held.
You’d feel pain-free, joyful and have a fire burning in your chest that would keep you feeling young, enthusiastic and full of life!
Life would feel great like this, wouldn’t it?
You’ve tried to feel better
But it’s not like you haven’t tried. You’ve been pushed to the edge time and time again and vowed countless times that you’d finally make it work. You’d finally break out of this rut and get your health back into shape.
So, you did your research, you read a ton of books, magazine articles and blog posts. You tuned in to podcasts and you’ve even paid attention to the health advice that popped up on This Morning from time to time.
Then you decided to act. Anything was worth a try if it could help you feel better, right?
So, you tried intermittent fasting, but you just felt ravenous all the time…
You tried Keto but you just couldn’t quit those delicious veggies…
You tried meditating daily but you just got bored and fidgety…
You went vegan and did nothing but crave bacon butties and cheese all day…
You quit social media completely but missed those cute cat pictures and seeing what your friends were up to…
You even set your alarm for 5 am and went for a run, did yoga, wrote in your journal and did your best to live the kind of ultra-disciplined life that you ‘knew’ would finally make you happy.
And at the same time, you still had to do your best to juggle your responsibilities, take care of the kids, manage your obligations at work, take care of aging parents, get the weekly food shopping done, keep the house clean and get enough sleep…phew! It’s enough to make anyone feel exhausted.
It didn’t work
So, it should come as no surprise that, despite all that time and effort you invested in trying to feel better, nothing really changed.
It all got too overwhelming, you ran out of energy and enthusiasm and you just didn’t get the results you were hoping for.
Even if you did manage to keep up, you ended up feeling burnt out and exhausted, suffering with ‘mysterious’ illnesses like fibromyalgia, fatigue, reoccurring candida and a whole host of other things.
After all this effort, you find yourself back at square one, feeling even more like a failure than ever before. You resign yourself to staying stuck and feeling fed up, frumpy, unsexy, old and worthless.
But there is a better way.
Small steps every day
You can expect down-to-earth and helpful advice here at Just Good Living.
What you won’t get is recommendations for extreme ‘health’ regimes or lifestyles. That just leads to further ill health (and I speak from experience).
At Just Good Living we lovingly embrace imperfection. Of course, you want to be your best, but we all need to stop being so hard on ourselves.
By being kinder to ourselves and taking small steps in the right direction, we can find lasting health and happiness. We don’t need to achieve the perfection of super-gurus.
You ARE good enough, and this is YOUR TIME to heal.
