this is what high functioning anxiety looks like

Hello, hello, loves! Welcome back to another Wellness Wednesday. Today I’m shedding some light on high functioning anxiety, which technically isn’t considered a mental disorder, but I still thought it was important to talk about. During the times my anxiety isn’t quite so high, I consider myself to be someone with high functioning anxiety – solely because my anxious tendencies always exist, but might not present themselves to the point of panic/anxiety disorder. The thing about those with high functioning anxiety is that we function rather well – we tend to use it to propel ourselves forward and as motivation for success rather than sit in fear. However, the toxic mental processes are still there, but we’re just better about hiding it behind a smile. So what exactly does high functioning anxiety look like?

wellness wednesday: mental health awareness month

May is one of my favorite months here on the blog because I love getting to recognize one of the aspects of health + wellness I’m most passionate about: mental health. I’ve never been quiet about my struggles with anxiety + panic attacks, but about two years ago – when I revamped the blog – I posted about my personal struggle with anxiety. When I realized how good it felt to open up about my anxiety and saw how many people it touched, I promised I would continue to be a voice for those that still felt unable to speak out.

my food sensitivity results!

Happy Friday y’all! If you’ve been around the blog long, you know I’ve become a huge advocate for anti-inflammatory diets, but exactly what can trigger those inflammatory responses can differ from person to person. I already had some suspicions about what foods trigger a response for me, but I wanted to put those suspicions to the test!
