While I don’t often eat meat, I’m also not a vegetarian. In fact, you’ll see me eat some form of meat at least twice a week. But the point of this blab is to mention that steak is never a preference. So, when I found myself at an Argentinian restaurant one weekend, I k...

Two boys - one was younger, the other older. Their stories are different, but they both arrived in Taiping, China on crutches, seeking in the Eastern practice of energy healing, or Qi, a remedy to manage their illness. Turns out they walked out on their own feet. Both...

Back in College, I had a personal, more accurately labeled as “shared”, trainer that would come coach my friends and I three times a week. We were four in the group, doing some variation of what’s now known as circuit training. At the time, I viewed exercise as an acti...

With most things I do, I try to keep a balance. It’s one of those things that recovery from an eating disorder makes you hyper aware of, “balance”.

If there is an intuitive way for humans to enjoy things in moderation, subconsciously preserving a “good enough” balance,...

This weekend I attended my 10-year High School reunion. And what a weekend it was. From the moment I reached the train stop, the madness began. Two days fuelled by the excitement of coming together, in a place that made us so happy, to celebrate each other and the expe...

‘Twas a long walk my march to recovery. I try to think of when it is that I passed the destination, but then I question whether I’ve even reached it yet?

At first, it’s all about the finish line. While the idea of recovered life couldn’t be more vague at this stage, it’...

For a decent length of time now, I danced around the idea of writing about my Yoga journey. To be clear, it’s hardly an Instagram-able one. I still haven’t made it into a headstand, let alone a handstand. I still lay my mat at the back of the room and look up to see ot...

No two eating disorders will ever be the same, and so, the road to recovery cannot be more individualized. There is no one size fits all, and generalizing on the steps towards freedom, or worse yet, referring to the “right” way for things to go, can be deceptive, perha...

Lately, I come to the realization that majority of my posts set quite the optimistic tone to recovery and eating disorders. I find that in my writing, much like during my recovery experience, I often focus on the positive. This is due to my journey including a mindful...

“It’s never really about the food”, he said. Thinking to myself, it so is about the food – as I cannot bring myself to eat - I was confused as to how on earth I ended up sitting in a psychiatrist’s office. And yet, by some force of the universe, I had a feeling he was...

Lately, I am running out of enthusiasm in writing about my experience with anorexia - frustrating, and same time liberating. In recovery, you long for the day where you can no longer relate to the illness; at least I do. While aware that it’s a matter of years, I know...

The more unawareness I meet in my interactions with friends and relatives, the stronger my impulse to expose every single bit of my story. I trust that awareness will help lift up the stigma behind mental illness and foster more openness from fellow sufferers. I believ...

The first step in discovering our Self, in learning how to live our life freely and fully, is seeing how this Self - the soul - was present all along.

Let’s start by recalling the glimpses of true personality that always inhabited our thoughts. Those instants where we p...

Do you feel that you cruise through life not really knowing why you do the things you do? Be it your vocation in general, or the little actions and thoughts you notice in your quotidian? Maybe it’s switching off from the “outside world” all too often, or hoping you cou...

Somewhere in early adulthood, being the reflection of what my entourage appreciated, knowing how I “shouldn’t be”, gave direction to my life: a sense of the type of girl I ought turn into. In dedicating myself to what others expected, or valued I became carefree of my...
