The Create Calm and Lifestyle Kollection

The first topic I chose to discuss is about Mindset or ways to help adopt a more positive one and how it can impact all areas of our lifestyle.

I thought it might be a helpful one to raise at this time. Take it from someone who knows the importance of understanding and learning this. It is some of the best information I have ever learned.

For decades I was stuck in a negative mindset after my mother suddenly passed away when I was 22, although I probably really was since I was 8 when my father suddenly passed away. I always carried around an underlying sense of anxiety and fear after my mum passed away.

It was not until about three and a half years ago I started having panic attacks and very severe anxiety. The first one I was taken to hospital in an ambulance in the middle of the night, it was really scary. It has been an ongoing journey of recovery since and something I work on everyday. I was forced to learn more and find ways that would help me change. Up until then I had always been doing things that I thought would help, but really actually didn’t make any lasting changes.

It wasn’t until I learned about the brain and mind that I had a greater knowledge and understanding, which I needed to as mine was really stressed. The good thing is there are things that help which do make lasting changes. It it through learning about real ways, that make real changes, not just what I thought might work or could work, but what actually does work that things started to change for the better.

What’s your food mood?

Here I write about my own personal experience with understanding how food can affect our moods. It is an interesting topic and one that I have explored through my own observations over many years as I had a very bad relationship with food. Looking at how foods affected me with the way I would feel and how a shift in my mindset saw me adopt a much healthier relationship and new understanding of food.
