Reflect on whether your eating and sleeping habits feel healthy and balanced.
I have spent most of my life struggling with my weight. Pretty much ever since puberty, I've been overweight. So reflecting on my eating habits is difficult. I definitely try to eat healthy, but I have a pretty strong sweet tooth. Consequently, I tend to beat myself up over not being able to lose weight. I'm sure that's not very balanced.
My sleep never really seems balanced. I find it pretty difficult to get to sleep, and I often wake up in the middle of the night. So I let me doctor know about that and she prescribed some medication to help me sleep. Now I tend to sleep more through the night, but not completely.
When I have to work, I tend to wake up at 5 in the morning. I'm pretty sure that has to do with my anxiety. This only seems to happen on the days I have to work. On the weekends, I can sleep until my alarm.
I would love to find more balance in my life.
