After 7 weeks away from the daily grind I am beginning to feel refreshed and revitalised.
It has been hard work getting this far and wouldn’t have been possible without the support of family and good friends and backup from my professional association.
There is no quick fix but I’ve perservered with daily walks. Some have become quite lengthy. My fitness levels and energy have been boosted.
Rediscovering old hobbies I had curtailed due to the demands of work has helped return joy and pleasure to my days.
Mindfulness training using an app has helped calm my mind, appreciate the now and stop worrying about the past or future.
My biggest hurdle is getting closer. Returning to the place and people who were instrumental in my breakdown will be difficult. Maintaining the lifestyle changes which have helped my recovery will be a challlenge.
