Much less rubbish in my body

I gave up alcohol almost totally around April of 2018 because I knew I was and had been for some time, drinking too much. Now I have one or two glasses of sherry in a week if that.

My hormones were raging because I'm going through the menopause and I was looking for things I could do to lessen the symptoms and so...

I cut right down on coffee, I have no more than four cups and day now, and never after 2pm, and I have seen a big difference.

I was going off chocolate anyway, so I've cut right down on that.

I'm eating better too, more home-cooked, largely meat-free (but not completely, I like meat), meals and definitely always breakfast and much better lunches.

All this change has come about since I returned to being completely self-employed, because I know I'm less stressed, less rushed, and more mindful of how I feel and how I respond to that.

It might sound a bit 'hippy dippy', but I know that being aware of how I am in mind/body/spirit, but more importantly, being able to respond to that by changing my working pattern, taking some time out, eating/drinking differently, exercising, at times that suit me and not to fit in with a regular 9-5, Monday to Friday job, or any convention other than my own has made a huge difference to my life and wellbeing.

Is it easy? Of course not. I still need to make money to pay my way in the world, but I've never felt better mentally and physically or more able to do what I need to do than I do now.

And I know I'm incredibly lucky to be able to do what I love and live the way I want to live, it's taken me a long time to get here, but now I am here, there's no going back
