    Can totally relate to being in a *Bleep* mood when I am hangry! But once I eat it’s like night and day with my mood πŸ˜„ If I am feeling angry I have to vent it out to G or a trusted friend for a bit and then I can move on. If I am sad I have to cry it out by myself. I usually cry it out in the shower. For some reason I find the hot running water soothing as I cry. But once I get my emotions out (whether anger or sadness) then I can move on and not feel stuck in whatever problem triggered them.

      Gosh the crying in the shower sounds poetic πŸ˜… do you also feel like no one really understands you when you are sad?
      By the way, G sounds more perfect each day! Is that even possible?

      • Delicate and brutal says

        Sometimes I feel like no one understands why I am sad. It’s more like I can’t always accurately put into words how I feel so I cry. I am truly blessed to have G in my life! He is the perfect partner for me 😊❀

    It’s true it’s amazing how much clean food can make a difference to your mood. When I’m low I eat and eat and eat, then I’m feeling low and heavy and bloated! But as soon as I start watching what I eat- everything else becomes clearer too…. The problem is- you have to get there first.
    Loved your article ❀️😘

    Great tips! Doing something I enjoy often helps me. And it’s so important to give yourself some good time! I often forget that I don’t have to be productive all the time and that just adds more stress.

    • Shelly DS says

      Lol you forget that you don’t have to be productive?! Please give me whatever water you drink because I have to remind myself to be productive!

    I agree with doing something to get yourself out of the slump. It’s so easy to want to do nothing when you’re in a crappy mood. Always having a list of activities ready for days like that can be really helpful!

    • Shelly DS says

      Oooh a list! That’s brilliant! Maybe you can write a list of things that you can do when you feel down about your weight loss journey πŸ˜‰

    Thank you so much for taking time to connect the dots between physical and mental wellness. Their connection is one that should be the most obvious but is often the most forgotten, especially in the moment of a meltdown.
    Depending on what has set me off I either write it out in my journal or I take time to just be alone, usually with a book and a tub full of bubbles.

    • Shelly DS says

      Oooh those are definitely great things to do! Exercise is a big one for me. I need to slam heavy weights to feel like I’m doing something about my problems πŸ˜…
      Thanks for sharing!

    This is such great advice! I have noticed I am way more likely to feel depressed when I haven’t gotten enough sleep or haven’t eaten properly so that is definitely something to look out for. What I would add is just an addition to the first point you have about figuring out what’s bothering you. Meditation is a really great tool when you’re trying to figure your brain out because it allows you to really focus on the issue at hand. Whenever I have a problem or feel down I meditate and my brain unconsciously helps me get to the root of the problem and how to solve it.

    I think that when we feel something we shouldn’t invalidate that feeling or try to bury it. Rather we can allow it to be there and think that as much like any other feelings, those will eventually go away. In this way we learn to let go easily and move on with self reflections and facing them head on, understanding why we feel that way. 🌻 Love these tips, Shelly I absolutely agree with them! 😊 xx
