I’m trying to take each day as it comes at the moment - something I’ve forcibly had to do while things with my health have (temporarily) fallen out of my control. - I’ve always been one to plan ahead, to know exactly what workouts I’m doing for the week ahead, the food I’m eating, the projects I’m completing, the events I’m attending or friends I’m seeing. I thrive off to do lists, schedules and deadlines. - The past few weeks though? I’ve barely been able to do half of what I’ve wanted to do. Whether that be because of physical pain and discomfort that’s left me crippled on my couch, social anxiety from how “off” I’ve been feeling, or because my days are being thrown off by long waits for doctors and appointments. - I miss feeling productive and fulfilled, and it’s something I’ve really struggled with mentally recently. I’ve just felt so ‘stuck’ and trapped in a body and mind that aren’t switched on like they used to be. - It’s a sh*t feeling, but it’s just meant I’ve had to pivot and change my priorities and expectations of myself until I get things sorted. Hopefully that will be soon - I get more test results tomorrow, and today my symptoms are a little better than they were yesterday! It’s just one step in front of the next at the moment - and I’m trying to take in every lesson I’m being taught about myself along the way. - So note to self; you’re allowed to slow down without giving up; you can always, always find some sort of progress in each day and you can definitely succeed by being gentle and honest with yourself rather than simply just demanding it from yourself ✨ TBC... - 📸@naturally_alice @betterbeingsteph betterbeingsteph Steph

Your eyes look so pretty in this photo!! I think given what you are going through you’re doing a pretty good job of getting shit done; going to events, the gym, going to the doctors and having tests done, posting on Instagram. You need to give yourself a pat on the back for managing to do stuff everyday despite feeling so crappy 😘💕
