“If we can get our food, sleep, and movement to an adaptive and sustainable place we see an improvement in our mood and our overall sense of wellbeing. We are then more likely to be able to find the energy to work on our thoughts and behaviours to bring about a change, and freedom from our worry and unhelpful beliefs that hold us back.”
