Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - Hello March

This post was updated on 24/03/18

Today is my Wellbeing Wednesday! The first Wednesday of the month where I share my plans for my wellbeing for the month ahead. I’ve recently set up a new format for this, you can read more about this here.

Well before I delve into the categories I should mention that I have set a challenge for March. #3forMe March Self-Care Challenge is about carrying out 3 self-care activities every day.  It is too easy to get caught up in the day to day and not spend time looking after your mind, body and soul. This challenge keeps me accountable to do just that.

I am so excited that a number of people are also taking part in both Shine in Self-Care Facebook group and Instagram. I am on a mission to get as many people taking care of themselves more. If you would like to get involved, click on either link above.

Otherwise read on to see what March wellbeing looks like for me.

How I went from collapse to conquer with my health

How I went from collapse to conquer with my health

Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - Collapse to Conquer

This post was updated on 24/03/18

For the last 10 days or so, I’ve had a flare up of symptoms, which includes

  • Weakness in legs
  • Difficulty standing, walking
  • Drop falls
  • Severe tiredness; struggling to keep eyes open and speech slurred.

When I’ve felt like this, I’ve had little option but to rest. I haven’t had the brain power to do anything else. There is no doubt that having a flare up is frustrating etc. No one is going to enjoy them.  I had to cancel or change plans, including going to a birthday party of a good friend. Well there is never a good time to be ill though is there. So rather than dwell on it and think life is on hold, I acknowledge how I am feeling and accept it means I need to rest. That’s not wasting time. It is exactly what I need.
