“Nourish My Life” started as a health and fitness blog but is now morphing to include more about my journey toward a happier style of living.
It is a personal blog about healthy eating, sustainable living, and a lifestyle that supports mental health and living to my full potential in happiness.
For more than a decade I’ve suffered from bipolar disorder, meaning I have episodes of major shifts in mood. I regularly experience severe depressions which last for weeks or months at a time and has ultimately fueled my decision to change not just my diet but also my style of living.
While my metabolism is fantastic and I can binge for weeks on sugary foods and not gain an inch, that type of diet leaves me feeling tired all the time and creates instability in my mood and general wellbeing.
Moreover, the busy, career-obsessed lifestyle I was living left me stressed, sleep-deprived and unhappy.
Eating healthier and simplifying my lifestyle leaves me feeling more energised so I can enjoy the things I surround myself with.
Although this is a blog of my personal journey to a healthier happier being, my intention is that it will inspire you to live healthy and happy too!
