Tips from the Borderline: Take care of yourself

It's no surprise I've been a lot low lately. Last time Therapist saw me she thought I looked happy and healthy, or at least as happy as I've been as of late. Last Thursday, I was just done. Nowhere near the lows I've felt in my past. To my credit, it didn't feel like the end or that I had nothing to live for. I did question whether or not my life was always going to be this Up and this Down and this Downer, but when you've lived your whole life that way, I think it's pretty typical. 

So I'm taking this weekend off. In a good way. I laid down to take a nap yesterday at 6:30p.m.... I woke up a couple times, but all-in-all I slept through til about 8a.m. this morning. I've been exhausted, and ignoring myself. Time to listen to my body. 

When I woke up this morning I had a nice day back at the gym. My first in a while. 

Then I stocked up my fridge with spinach, green apples, celery, grapes, strawberries, and cucumbers. Juice/Smoothie cleanse! Just a short one. 

I feel toxic. I need to take care of me. Physically, leads to better mentally. 

So, here's Haven's tip of the day. Take some time off for you. But it's conditional. I don't mean gobbling up bon-bons and flopping in front of the telly all day. Health and movement. Do something rejuvenating that is actually good for you.

  2. Hi Haven,
    It is amazing how what you eat does have an impact on the overall well being. I have been a vegetarian for about 15 years and just went vegan. I have a question. Why does there always have to be fighting and conflict in a frienship with a borderline? I feel like bait as far insults and anger. Can you shed light on why for the farther the distance the more they attack even thoughthey want the distance? Thank you for all you do!
