It can be easy to slip out of routine on the weekend but for our mental health and well-being it is important that we still have some routine there. Keeping your waking and sleep times the same can also be an essential tool to keep in place. Having down time is important and it is often in those quiet relaxed moments we can hear the wisdom of our soul and heart instead of our head, it is not practical or valuable for us to do this too much. Stay on top of your wellness week long!

Had a rough few days. Best way I could describe it is walking through a forest of rose bushes. It's gorgeous all around you but simply existing there means you're walking through thorns whichever way you go. It's hard to wrap my head around the fact that I still have chronic pain and a mental illness when I seem to be triumphing over all the odds. The past few days have been pretty painful. I showed up to my pain doctor in tears this afternoon, not knowing what to do because I didn't think I could finish my ride. What goes up must come down I guess. It's ok though, I'm gonna keep fucking goin, even when my body says it cant.
I changed my account name to "journey to luving me". Why? Initially I was all about the #weightloss. Now it's about love. I still don't know how to love myself but I am trying! I am learning. And I've got to say- this is harder than losing the lbs. And it's been more meaningful. It's hard to explain at this point in my journey but I'll try:
I am trying not to care about what people think of how I look. I am trying to look good for me and me alone. I am trying to make decisions concerning my health based on how I feel. How my body feels. Not how I look. How others see me.
Gratitude. Practicing gratitude and letting go. Not comparing.
And if I hope anything comes out of this post, it's that I inspire others to love themselves as well (or at least try😉)

About the facilitator:⠀
Dr. Nida Hussain, PsyD (US), Clinical Psychologist⠀
I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist with extensive experience in individual therapy (child-geriatrics), group therapy, family therapy, and psychological testing.⠀
Having held positions in a variety of settings including psychiatric hospitals, medical clinics, a level 1 trauma center, and general hospitals, I utilize my experiences along with my knowledge of Cognitive Behavioral Theory to help patients bridge the gap between physical and mental health, to optimize functioning on a day to day basis. As humans, we are comprised of many facets (physical, mental, personal, familial, work, intimate, etc), therefore I believe in looking at individuals as a whole to best address issues at their root. I consider therapy as a collaborative process, in which the patient takes an active role in determining the course of both therapy and ultimately their life track.
