Weddings make you often think about your own love life, and I’m not immune to this. Being the only bridesmaid without a plus one for the third wedding this year feels like a romantic comedy plot, and I can’t help but feel a little sad when the slow songs come on and I sit solo at a table with my gin & tonic. As I’ve watched many of my friends get married, and many more settle into comfortable committed relationships, I begin to wonder if I’m doing something wrong.

My anxiety is largely under control now, thanks in combination to my medication, therapy, and personal development work that has empowered me to create a life largely free of triggers. Still, there are some things I can’t control, and there are still moments where I feel anxiety and stress come in. Luckily, most of those are from things that stress anyone out–looming deadlines, moving, health crises, and the like.

Movement is our natural birth right and one of the main pillars of physical, mental and emotional health but since the fitness industry has been promoting exercise, the idea of moving the body has become a trigger for many. I like moving because it helps me get out of my head and into my body. I find it easier to be in the present moment as my body always experiences the world as it is at any given moment, with no story or narrative attached to experiences.

When we have not rested enough the level of cortisol (a.k.a. stress hormone) increases in the body, which can make us more anxious. The short-term effects of not getting enough sleep are irritability, lack of focus and alertness, and feeling scattered-minded, which can affect our behaviour and relationships. The long-term effects can be more serious: chronic sleep deprivation is linked to the likelihood of developing symptoms such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart failure, or stroke. 8 Hours Of Sleep, Go To Sleep, Health And Wellbeing, Chronic Sleep Deprivation, Lack Of Focus, Heart Failure, High Blood Pressure, Cortisol

Capitalism, so tightly intertwined with the patriarchy, had told me that my looks mattered more than my intelligence or my kindness. When I lost weight, my peers commended me on my willpower. Just as working hard is supposed to lead to an aspirational life, I had “worked hard” enough to have an aspirational body. Denying yourself rest and pleasure are the cornerstone values of capitalism.

The idea of wellbeing presented by the wellness industry is somewhat limiting. Having a healthy body (or a body that is deemed healthy-looking by social standards) completely dismisses the notion that humans are complex beings in need of social and spiritual connections, psychological and emotional balance.
