Earlier this week I came across an article, “7 Ways I Take Care of Myself During Depressive Episodes,” by Taylor Steele over on The Body Is Not An Apology (which you should read, like, all the time). I can identify with a lot of what the author has to say, especially with the sentiment that I am so over the stigma around talking about mental illness. Ditto treating mental health as separate and wholly different from physical health.
I didn’t think plus size yoga could be a real thing. But, there are bright spots on my quest to find enjoyable movement, and yoga videos on Cody app are some of them.
I love serendipitous symmetry, and one of my upcoming trip has it in spades–almost 10 years to the day I’ll be returning to Puerto Vallarta. Next month, we’re spending four nights at the Hyatt Ziva All-Inclusive to celebrate my 30th birthday.
Lately, I’ve been exploring new brands, figuring out sizing, and figuring out what I like now that I’m a different shape than I have been in the past.
There aren’t external rules saying I have to move. I don’t need to find movement that leads to a specific result. What I’m doing, this stopping myself before I get the chance to experience something I enjoy, isn’t treating myself kindly.
I’m fat. Also, I travel. I cannot share my experience with one without the other.
