happy on the in­side

Good Health Choices - - Your Say - – Dee

Thank you for the open and hon­est ar­ti­cle fea­tur­ing Makaia Carr. I’ve worked in the fit­ness in­dus­try for many years and for most of those years, I ex­er­cised re­lent­lessly. I thought I was happy be­cause I was work­ing hard, had the ‘fit’ body and was of­ten praised for it. But when I had my sec­ond child I ex­pe­ri­enced PND, and that’s when it hit me. I’d never taken time to fo­cus on my in­ner be­ing and truly feel happy, not just look happy. I’ve used my time off work to slow down, and make bet­ter health choices for me and my fam­ily. And like Makaia, I feel bet­ter for it!
