✔️Guide to vitamins : Even if you do eat well, other factors – such as your age and certain health conditions (digestive issues and others) – can impact your body’s ability to absorb the nutrients in your food.Meanwhile, soil quality, storage time, and processing can significantly influence the levels of certain nutrients in your food, such that even healthy produce may not be as nutrient-rich as you may think. Pesticide rich foods will also block your body's ability to absorb and maintain nutrients. The food we eat is the food our body uses to regenerate and ensure the proper functioning of every cell and organ ( immune system, heart beat lungs kidneys brain etc). The food we eat has the ability to turn genes on and off (ie memory, cancer, heart disease etc) . Get your vitamin levels tested by your doctor. Important note: vitamins A D E & K 💥are fat soluble💥 meaning too much can lead to toxicity leading to heart rate irregularities and other symptoms. Certain minerals can also lead to toxicity in high doses like iron and calcium. Conversely, the other vitamins b and c are water soluble meaning you will never overdose as your body will readily eliminate them via urination. 💥💥Always consult a conventional doctor or a naturopathic doctor when wanting to take large doses of a fat soluble vitamin or mineral such as iron. .
Although the holidays are one of the best parts of the year, there’s no denying that they come with stress. The source of anxiety may depend on the person but can often derive from traveling, finances, family tension, awkward holiday parties, and meeting the expectations of others.
If any of this sounds familiar, here are some ways to stay merry this Christmas-time!
1.) Finances: Stick to a budget. Make sure you plan out how much you want to spend and how much you can afford before you go gift and food shopping.
2.) Holiday parties: If you’re going to a gathering that’s out of your comfort zone, set a manageable goal for yourself. For example, tell yourself that you’ll go for at least an hour. It may also be helpful to anticipate who you’ll know, and who you can talk to once you get there.
3.) Travel plans: Plan and confirm all details in advance and allow enough time to pack. Think ahead and be sure to organize your belongings and bring everything you need.
4.) Remember to say no: Everyone gets busy during the holidays, and they will understand if you don’t participate in every festive activity. Be sure to book your time-off in advance, so work is one less thing on your mind.
5.) Don't abandon your healthy habits: Sometimes we use the holidays as an excuse to overindulge. However, this can have an adverse effect, leading to additional stress and guilt. Remember to get enough sleep and include time for exercise on your days off. Eating a healthy snack and drinking plenty of water before your Christmas dinner may reduce over-eating and regrets.
6.) Shopping and cooking: Set aside specific days and times for shopping, cooking, and baking, Plan your menus first and then make your shopping list. You won’t want to be scrambling for last-minute ingredients! Things have a tendency to sell out during the holidays.
It’s been a while since I had a panic attack but today I had one and it freaked me out. I was driving and looking ahead and started seeing the road move left to right, as if it was waving and my heart started to pound super hard and I felt extremely sweaty. I started feeling helpless and almost pulled to the side and stopped my car. I’m surprised I was able to keep driving. Anyone who makes jokes or fun of people who have panic attacks need to shut up. It’s not a funny thing. It’s not something to poke fun at. It’s a very real and serious thing. I haven’t had one since this summer so it totally caught me off guard. I’m just hoping it won’t happen again.
On November 20th I started my own Ningxia Red Challenge.
2 ounces daily.
✨Since that time I’ve lost 5 pounds without changing my diet. .
✨I have sustained energy throughout the day (I’ve only bought 2 Starbucks Refreshers since beginning...they are loaded with caffeine) I wa sbuying 2-4 Starbucks a week! .
✨I have not been sick (and where I live there is a bad bug going around) .
✨I feel like there has been a boost/balance in my mood (I normally struggle with anxiety).
✨Also, my 11 month old also started sleeping through the night again...which I’m wondering if it’s because of better milk supply?
These are my results in just under a month.

Oh wow, this bitch is still alive??????? (Also that's me ew)
Pffft depression can suck my ass. I hate it. I hate being suicidal, I hate the anxiety, I hate being judged for coping mechanisms (that don't harm me or anyone around me), I'm tired of the not eating, the constant Nightmares, I'm tired of arguing to keep my boyfriend alive even though all I want to is die myself. It's hell.
Everything is back. The eating disorders, the crying, the no sleep, stress and more..
Also. I got my year clean ha fuckers, people owe me money now, and in less than a week I will get a year clean of no suicide attempts.
Although... I might try tonight, no one will miss me anyway.. #depression#anxiety#iwanttodie#selfharm#anorexia#bulimia

Read. Learn. Do. Repeat. .
Tay snapped this cool candid photo of me this morning just vibin’ away in my natural element. .
“Cigarettes After Sex” radio in the background, a bite of food in my mouth, coffee in my mug and a world of endless possibilities at my finger tips (literally📱) - I’m a happy camper. .
Transitioning from the idea of “Hey that sounds cool, I think I might do that.” to the action of “Hey, I’m dedicating my whole existence into that and am letting the world I know.”, can be a bit intimidating. .
It brings up some of the anxieties and fears that I’ve worked so hard to not be controlled by. “What if I fail?” “What if I look like a fool? Then the real heavy hitters, “What if let Taylor down?”, “What if I can’t provide for Cam and he ends up disappointed in me?”
I then calmly observe those unhelpful thoughts, make a bit room for the discomfort that they bring and continue doing what I love to do.
A few years ago, things would not have gone this smoothly. I would have completely attached to these catastrophic outcomes, shut the blinds, stress ate a few lbs of food and binge watched a season of “That’s 70’s Show.” and completely neglect the actions that were important to me.
Can’t even begin to describe the amount of gratitude I have for the tools that I’ve learned and the freedom that they’ve given me to pursue and live a beautiful life and not be stuck in that cycle of misery.
It ain’t always easy, it ain’t always perfect. But I do always have a set of resources that I can fall back on to help me get back onto my feet, and for me that is amazing. .
As always, my DM’s are always open if you’re interested in learning some of those tools for yourself. Or if you just need somebody to talk to.
Like pictured above, I’ll be here chugging along, working away and waiting for your message. 🚂❤️

“Life is a bitch and then you die.” I remember saying this aloud 4 years ago as I was standing in the window of a house I was getting kicked out of and I thought, how did I get here? I was a single mom, I worked everyday for pennies and I was constantly haunted by my traumatic childhood. I blamed everything that went wrong in my life… on everyone else and everything else. I let my past be my excuse for the miserable life that I was living. The feeling was so Unreal. I questioned myself, cried, pulled my hair and cut my arm to forget. I was hiding behind my smile.
All of this was before I took control and full responsibility over my life. I confronted my past, well it surprised me as I was coming around the corner, slapped me right in my face. I guess I should say, when my past confronted me. LOL
I am now at peace because I created a Positive Mindset.
The Positive mindset helps you take control of all the things in your life while creating the future that you need to fulfill your purpose. Today, I am so grateful that my happiness is no longer attached to anything, but me.
I am reaching out to women who need to step away from their past and begin to create their futures. Someone who recognizes their smile but somehow your past crept back up on you. Be brave, everything you need is inside of you. I am here to help you focus on you. Enhancing the woman you are today into the woman you aspire to be. I am here to help you build your positive mindset so that you begin to visualize your future and watch it come to life. Believing is seeing.
Are you ready to use your positive mindset and create your desired future? Comment "I AM" below and message me. We will schedule a call. I'm putting together a small program and gathering as much info as possible. Let's talk if you are truly ready! Looking for 3 ppl to speak with this weekend! 💖
Stigma is a negative stereotype of something which is usually created by generations and generations talking about a topic in a certain way with a negative tone, containing information that is incorrect. Talking about mental illness stigma is so important because of it effects the lives of millions of people around the world. I personally want to raise awareness that combats stigma because of how it effects my life and those around me.
The biggest problem is that most people don’t understand the mental illnesses themselves. Each one has a different stigma, for example OCD has a stereotype at it is just being 'neat and tidy' and Anorexia has a stereotype that you have to be 'underweight' to suffer from it. On the surface these don't sound like a large problem but when you have millions of people believing they are true it creates a huge problem. When there is this misunderstanding and under education it causes people to not understand what it is. Then the people suffering are not being understood on a world widely basis. So many people don't understand mental illness to the point where they don’t see it as a serious illness and therefore people go on suffering without support. This is why stigma is so important to break down. We need every day people to have an understanding of what a mental illness actually is including the seriousness of it, the signs and symptoms and how it effects someone’s daily life. This is why we spread awareness and this is why it is vital not to ignore it just because the issue hasn't effected you yet. Millions of people suffer and so chances are you OR someone you know will suffer at some point in their life time. Mental illness does NOT discriminate therefore it can effect anyone and everyone, educating yourself on it and the negative stigma could just mean that you can see the signs of someone you love suffering with it and this could even save a life. This is not a solved issue, it still needs to be talked about because it is still misunderstood and stigmatized all over the world. @thepositivitypages
This was one of the pieces I made for Unit 2 of VCE Studio Art (oil on canvas- this was my first time using oils and I love them) and my focus was the experience of having depression and general anxiety (this one was depression). I chose this because mental health has become a huge part of my life this year and many people (myself and others) in my life have had to deal with too. Obviously this painting is up for interpretation but I personally wanted to encapsulate an isolated and disassociated feeling while the figures specifically show confusion, nothingness, helplessness and aNgUiSh (and anger). This was a huge point for me to start properly thinking about imagery and how to visually represent certain things without it being too over the top and these were pretty fun and interesting to work through.

Be kind to yourself.
You aren't broken or damaged. No one is.
You can 'feel' this way but that's not who you are.
Reframe these into more loving statements about yourself.
It's in the darkest times, that I discovered so much more about myself.
It's in my breakdowns that I found my power and that always lead to my break throughs.
Remember be gentle and talk kindly to yourself
How you take CBD is so important to ensure you get the full effects.

Almost anyone with anxiety will agree that those daunting thoughts have a track record of never coming true. Do you see how much you put your body through just by worrying over something that most likely will NEVER happen? Check out our ANXIETY story for tips to combat anxious thoughts from progressing into a habit.
Thoughts are just that, don't give them more power than they actually have.
