Sports Traider Volunteers
Mind & body zoom classes
Hello, My name is Chloe, and I am excited to offer Sports Traider a couple of mind and body classes each month, along with a fortnightly healthy and delicious recipe.
Since the age of 16, I have battled severe mental health issues, including psychosis, and then a diagnosis of bipolar disorder.
During my first hospital admission, I spent 8 months there. It was during this time that I turned to food for comfort, leading to a significant weight gain of nearly 4 stone by the time I left. When I finally left the hospital, I was overwhelmed with anxiety, depression, and a sense of being lost, not knowing where to turn.
I’m happy to share this part of my journey now because I eventually turned to fitness and a healthier lifestyle to turn things around. I realized the profound connection between the mind and body, how what I put into my body significantly affects my mood and mental health, and that something had to change.
How I Got Started
So, I committed to incorporating a small amount of exercise into my daily routine (even just 5 to 10 minutes a day) and swapped to healthier food options while still treating myself on weekends. Gradually, my mind became clearer, and my outlook on life became more positive.
My point is, small changes that are within our control can pave the way for a better mindset when it comes to making more significant life decisions.
If you’re feeling alone and unsure of where to start, please join my free online Zoom sessions to begin your day with light movement, connecting the mind and body, and, hopefully, starting to feel better. You have nothing to lose, so give it a try!
No matter what you’re going through, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Show up for yourself!
Stay tuned for my fortnightly healthy and delicious recipes.
Can’t wait to see you soon.
Lots of love from Chloe xx
