Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - October 2017 Well-Being Review

This post was updated on 24/03/18

My well-being post is a little different this month, because of how things have worked recently. Usually I sit down towards the end of the month and review my progress against a few goals and set my intentions for the month ahead. Over the last few weeks I have been doing an awful lot of self-reflection and thinking of new ideas to try. In other words, thinking about my well-being; the importance of rest but also self-development, has been ongoing.  So for that reason, this week I thought it was worth sitting down and capturing what’s new. Let’s see how this goes!

Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - September 2017 Well-Being Review

This post was updated on 24/03/18

 

I love this point in the month when I plan for the month ahead. I value self-care more and more. People who spend their time only taking care of others and neglecting themselves are in danger of deeper levels of unhappiness, low self-esteem, and feelings of resentment. Taking time to care for yourself regularly can make you a better caretaker for others. Not only that but, taking a break from the outside world ensures you relax and allows you to get back to life feeling refreshed. You are then more able to handle life’s stress when we are feeling at our best, physically, mentally and emotionally.

Scary Reflections from my FND Symptoms Diary

Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - FND Symptoms Diary

This post was updated on 24/03/18

I was keen to understand what was happening so I started keeping a symptoms diary

I looked out for patterns. What was I doing before symptoms started? Was it a particular time of day? I’ve included below an extract of that diary. It was really difficult to select which dates to include, in order to fully describe what I went through. However, in the interest of you not falling asleep, I’ve kept it as brief as I can.

Saturday 16th March 2013
Started personal training at the gym and felt ok, just a little tired. 20 minutes into the session I felt dizzy and spaced out. Sat down and drank water, very tired. Couldn’t sit up properly or keep my eyes open for very long.
