It’s understandable that you are feeling discouraged about your health. Your doctor wants you to go on new medication, your spouse wants you to lose weight, and you are dissatisfied with how you feel inside your body. You want your vim and vigor back, but it’s been gone for so long.
I’m here to tell you that your health is anything but hopeless. You can reverse the damage. There are plenty of ways that you can get your health back, but it will cost you. You’ll have to:
Listen to your body instead of ignoring it.
Get out and do exercise you enjoy, not rigid workouts you detest
Take time for self-care instead of always over-committing yourself.
Give up damaging relationships for nurturing ones.
Spend time with loved ones rather than staying in isolation.
Replace condemnation and criticism with love and kindness.
Doesn’t sound like such a bad trade-off.
