Now then! Just a quick update on my Mindfulness course and how I’m taking to it (love it!).
As I say above, or as Mr. Justin Timberlake would say “I’m lovin’ it”. I really do wish I had found it years ago. I’d even say – Is it still compulsory to learn R.E in school? Coz if that’s getting taught, I think this should be!
It may be coming across that I’m getting pulled in by a mystery cult (that’d be sweet!) but seriously I really like the affect it has on my attitude and how to handle the stresses that life throws at you. Sounds stupid I know, and I’ve said it before people will scoff at it but if you’ve been through what I’ve been through, you’ll try anything that could help and this is helping big time. You don’t have to sit there, crossed legged and humming for hours on end. I try and do a quick 3-minute everyday (bet my parents can tell when I have or haven’t) and it really does give me a lift and help me get on with getting on.
It’s not the only thing I do, mind. It’s one of my tools along with the walking, reading, music, everybody’s continued work with me and still a good old favorite of mine…….. sleeping, oh and I best give a shout out to my medication too.
Also another thing that gives me the drive to get better and have the tools to fight it is, well, all of the help and support I’ve had in trying to spread the word about this terrible illness – it’s slightly overwhelming at times – especially at that time of night when laid in bed – you know what I’m talking about! So I use Mindfulness (see how I dropped that in there!). So thank you all so very much, lets keep going. I certainly will keep fighting for the silent and it’s down to you lot for giving me the drive to do so.
Have a good day everybody
