Can Anxiety Coping Mechanisms Be Unhealthy?

I like so many other anxiety sufferers have developed coping mechanisms. What do we do though when these become part of the problem?

Coping mechanisms for anxiety tend to be created by the sufferer themselves. They aren’t cures and they will have varying levels of success. Some can be greatly helpful such as getting enough sleep however some are unhealthy coping mechanisms and can make the problem worse. I have several for my different types of anxiety. I never consciously decided to create coping mechanisms they just happened.

My Favourite Fruit Free Green Breakfast Smoothie

So why did I create a fruit free green breakfast smoothie? When I did the Candida diet last year I had to cut out all sugars, including fruit, for 2 months. It's a very restrictive diet, especially during the first 7 days when you can only eat non-starchy vegetables and eggs. I liked to save the eggs for lunchtime so I struggled with what to eat for breakfast.

I had always enjoyed smoothies but whilst I happily added vegetables to them I always put fruit in too. I googled some recipes but nothing was quite right so I set about experimenting.

I'm writing this post to share two important messages with you. The first is a message we can all learn from. The second is for all the mummies of young girls out there.

My 8-year-old daughter Annie is a brownie. A couple of weeks ago, she brought home a sheet that she had completed with her ideas on how we can help other people smile.

First Month of Blogging: Update, Page Views and a Challenge!

Yesterday my blog was one month old. I can’t believe I’m a blogger at all never mind that I’ve been doing this for a month now! I’m loving it!

The Best Version of Kelly

As you hopefully know by now, I started this as a new year’s resolution of sorts. I never stick to resolutions. I’m the queen of procrastination and excuse making. I can time waste for hours. I don’t just put things off for days or weeks, I’m talking years. ‘Next summer I will get in shape enough to wear denim shorts.’ ‘Next Christmas I will make my own mince pies.’ ‘Next year I will sign up to a fitness challenge.’ Just a few examples. We think we have forever to make our lives how we want them to be, sadly we don’t.
