After years of struggling with anxiety and trying to cope with young children, working and running a household, I discovered simplicity.
I began to simplify my life by slowing down and clearing the clutter both in my home and in my head. The clouds of depression and anxiety began to lift as I had the space to relish the simple things in life again, the beauty in a sunset, and the joy on my children faces when playing in nature.
My diagnosis of Bipolar type 2 in 2011 started my journey towards healing my mental ill health, with its many ups and downs that I have been through with the support of medication, psychologists, psychiatrists and group therapy.
It was only after being hospitalized a few years ago that I had to own up to my responsibility for my recovery. So I began seeking more holistic ways to live successfully with my mental illness, for example de-cluttering my home, grounding myself with time in nature, gentle exercise and several other steps to simplify my life.
I would love to share my simple steps to sanity to help you to not just survive, but to begin to thrive.
