I wanted to reach out today and share my story of Anorexia and how I turned such a dark time into a thriving business and full-time career, encouraging Australian and New Zealand women to prioritise self love.
My wellness journey started in 2012 after being diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa. I had reached a critical point of my mental illness where I had to make some serious changes, or be hospitalised.
I could not believe I had reached a point where the mental illness was going to stop me from living my life, and I knew I had to fight to get well again.
The months that followed were some of my most challenging, but I was more determined then ever. I had to learn how to love food again, instead of fearing it. I began educating myself on wholefoods and found my love of cooking once again.
Almost five years later, I feel grateful everyday for good health. Truth be told, I do still struggle with body image, however my actions are never dictated by these feelings. I focus on nutrients rather than calories; every meal is a chance to nourish my body, not to punish it. Educating myself on wholefoods and holistic living was key to my recovery, and I want more than ever to share this with other Australian women.
My business Beautifully Well Box is a curated selection of boutique natural beauty, health and lifestyle products, delivered to your doorstep every month. I created BWB to share my love of natural beauty and wellness products. Discovering new products is exciting, and having a beautiful package delivered monthly is an amazing gift of self love. Each box is designed to inspire you to live well and celebrate good health and wellbeing.
I would love to have the opportunity to share my story and let others know they are not alone, and that they can overcome their struggles and create positive out of dark times.
Thank you so much for your time.
