Scenes from my Week

ranunculusI’m happy to announce that I’m feeling more like my old self with each passing day, and this week is of no exception. If you read my SFMW posts throughout January and February you’ll know that I was struggling with my mental health a little more than usual. I’ve since implemented a ton of little lifestyle changes that have been a bit of a game changer and am wondering if folks are interested in hearing about what I’ve been doing differently. Mental health isn’t really the focus on this here blog, but I always like to keep it real and know that a lot of you (unfortunately) resonated with those posts during my darker months. In the meantime, I’m going to keep on keeping on. I currently have a beautiful dinner date planned with an out of town friend, Monika (if you don’t follow her I insist you do so immediately), and will be spending the rest of the weekend finalizing our honeymoon plans (hurrah!) As always, here’s a peek at some of the highlights of my week.

    So glad you’re starting to feel better. Would love to read about what lifestyle changes you made to help. Thanks for sharing and not just putting a glossy facade on everything!

  2. Oh, I’m so glad you’re feeling more like yourself, Jacquelyn. Big hug!

  3. Linda says:

    Jacquelyn, your journey is important to share. I was also wondering if SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder – lack of sunlight ) played a part in your experience because you seemed at your worst in the deep winter months when the sun is the furthest away from us?

    So happy to hear that you’re feeling better, but thank you for sharing the no-so-good times too. Please do share what you’re doing to take care of yourself.

    Sunshine and warm weather is comming…
    I’m so glad you feel better,,,Love

  6. I’m happy to hear that you are feeling better. I think we all would benefit from a post on mental health. I’ve been so consumed with thoughts at night that I’ve had trouble sleeping lately. It may not be the cure; however, I am interested in giving K’Pure Natural’s Settle Down Calming Essential Oil Spray a try.

    Happy Friday Jacquelyn

    • It has helped me big time! Also, I used to struggle with the same thing and I always blamed anxiety however I’ve stopped drinking caffeine after 1:00pm each day and I now have ZERO issues falling asleep. I’m not sure if you’re a coffee or tea drinker but it’s worth a shot to switch to something herbal in the afternoon if that’s the case!

    Cool pictures! I am always amazed when people have such a natural sence of harmony!

  8. Katherin says:

    great entry, I love to come back here! As always, really interesting inspirations!

  9. Andrea Christina says:

    Just found you on the Internet. I’m happy you feel better – and I appreciate you have the courage to tell the world outside how you feel. Most of the women only show their good day faces – isn’t it sad? There are ups and downs in our lives – so every little help for the down’s are welcome!

    Please share what you’ve discovered. I too suffer with depression and anything that will help aside from more/different medication is always welcome. Thank you!
