I am not a person who embraces the feeling of being ill. Believe it or not, there are individuals out there who thrive off of the attention they receive when they are not feeling good. I am quite the opposite. There was a time when I was very active and I would partake in a number of activities that would involve me being very physical. This would include jogging, roller-
blading, cycling amongst other things.
However, over the years and with the launching of some of my ventures as well as balancing work, my health has been failing me; or should I say, I have been failing my health. I was recently diagnosed with having chronic fatigue and iron deficiency, meaning that I haven't been taking enough iron. This has seen my hair break drastically, my body ache, an increased lack of concentration and mood swings.
The past few months have been horrendous and it has meant that all of the things that I enjoy doing have been pushed aside.
I am now making more informed choices about what I am eating, I am developing a exercise plan which will involve me working out more, both indoors and outdoors, taking time out for meditation and reading which will allow my mind and body to de-stress. I'm also going to start juicing more and to re-visit yoga (as this was something I used to do most evenings)
When it comes to having goals in place, it really is impossible to achieve them if your health is not in check.
The next few weeks will be vital for my own development and that of my brand. A number of days ago, I had a very productive brainstorm with my creative director and co-editor to evaluate, just what needed our attention and focus over the coming months.
I'm very excited that at last, I have a vision, a direction and a goal, worth working towards. Therefore, it is absolutely paramount that I work on not only the progress of In-spire LS and Shop In-spire but that I also work towards developing a stronger version of myself.
