Interview with Act-Belong-Commit

 

I was recently interviewed by Act-Belong-Commit to talk about my experiences with homelessness, anxiety, obesity and PTSD, and how through reaching out and by act, belong, committing, I found meaning and purpose in life.

Being from a background where I was over 200 kilos and suffering from PTSD, exercise and eating right is a huge thing for me. It really helps me to regulate my mental health. I am also sensitive to things that trigger my anxiety, so I try to stay away from caffeine, and try not to have too much sugar, as it tends to amplify my mood.

I used to have nightmares that would ruin my day. These days, I have found a positive way to deal with it. If I have a nightmare, I get up – even if it’s at 3:00am – and I go to the gym. Finding motivation at that time in the morning is hard but I am always thankful, as when I get home, I’m able to go back to sleep.
