Presenting Brenda Vance’s Top 5 Tips for Staying Sane During Healing
1. Find your tribe. We are social beings and need to socialize with others. Find the ones who love you unconditionally, will challenge you in a healthy way, are accepting of your raw food lifestyle and will be there for you when you need to talk or need some comfort.
2. Create barriers. During healing, the last thing that you need is to deal with negative energy from others. Rid people, places and things out of your bubble that are not conducive to healing. Just as you are trying to eliminate darkness from within, you need to do so externally as well.
3. Minimize and keep it simple. Get rid of all the clutter from your mind by talking with others, joining a group counseling, journaling, meditating or what works best for you. Minimize your life. The more “stuff” we have, the more stressed we become. Organize your space and minimize how much you have. Rid yourself of everything that is not a necessity. This will help minimize stress and aid in healing.
4. Trust the process. Stay as positive as possible and keep up on your raw food and plant-based research so that you feel 100 percent confident on your path. In the beginning, you may feel like absolute sh*t. Many people will give up, thinking they are supposed to be healed in days. Remember, the healing process takes years. Be compassionate to yourself and allow your body and mind the time they need to fully heal. Do not try to rush things, and allow things to happen naturally.
5. Have self-compassion, love yourself and rest. Self-compassion yields a number of benefits, including lower levels of anxiety and depression. Self-compassionate people recognize when they are suffering and are kind to themselves at these times, reducing their anxiety and related depression. Spend time getting to know yourself and working through barriers that you have involved in being able to love yourself fully. Rest is a must during the healing process. In our society, which is fast-paced and always on the go, rest is not something that is applauded. Your body, however, needs adequate rest and sleep in order to do the healing that it needs to.
