As I mentioned on the first post of the year, I’m hoping to do some focusing on different areas. One of those is health. What will we look at?
Some of this will be about dealing with chronic illness, due to my lived experience. I will touch on that in another post. Other weeks will be about subjects which come up in the news or questions readers have.
This subject comes up also because of my own lived experience with anxiety, depression and ADHD. Mental health is something very important to me and I have the wonderful privilege of volunteering alongside other great individuals in my local NAMI affiliate.
So, I admit we won’t visit this much, but when we do, it will be about fun activities. Confession: I failed PE 1 1/2 times. I was a junior in freshman PE. My adventures happen in the pages of a book or on a canvas, not on the court. Pretty much the only things to get me to move is a hike in nature or dancing.
Food, glorious food! We are foodies (isn’t everyone?). We’ll share some fun recipes, the science of nutrition, and, for a few weeks, my family’s journey on Whole30. We’re looking at resetting our bodies, changing our relationships with food, and hopefully seeing some improvement in health issues in our home (more energy and less pain, pleeeeeease!).
