Wellness Wednesday: Progress Works!

Another week in the books and another opportunity to measure the progress I have been making in over a week by incorporating more changes to my regimens. They are creating change and I could not be happier of the progress I am making as a result of making simple changes and creating new habits.

Reflections: Pre-Pandemic Routine

Over the past few weeks, I have been resuming what was in most ways the routine that I had pre-pandemic. While many things have changed since then, there are still many things in a brick and mortar form that are still there and I have now realized how much the pandemic had set me back and what I needed to do to build myself back up to where I left off over two and a half years ago.

Adulting: Personal Preferences

So, this past week as I navigate the world, I am beginning to realize that I may have different preferences than those close to me and I am realizing that I have the right to have the choices that I have to do the things in life that I want as long as they do not cause an hindrance to anyone. As such, I realize how much my thinking has been skewed by the way I thought I had to follow the choices of those close to me.

Heading In The Right Direction

As I was thinking of something to write for my weekly feature post this week, I contemplated greatly and went back and forth on several ideas for a post for the week ahead as I usually write on the weekend before. Being a great week overall, I decided to write about just that.

Wellness Wednesday: A Better Bill of Health

Last week I went to the doctor for my six month checkup. I have been aware of some things that have been needing improvement in recent weeks and have been taking little initiatives to make improvements for that to occur. Seeing the improvements actually be seen gives me the stamina to keep doing what I am doing and not revert back to old habits.

Reflections: Awareness of The World

Recently, I have realized that there are things I am slowly becoming more aware of that affect my senses. Knowing this, I have to use the proper defenses to best protect myself from reacting in a negative manner that can cause unwanted attention or behavior and produce  consequences that I will deeply regret. 

Adulting: Personal Safety

Anymore, at least in my world anyway, it has been imperative to be vigilant of my personal safety when out and about in public, as it should be of anyone. However, for many autistic people, this can be a struggle to have understood and know one’s boundaries when it comes to your own safety.
