Hello and welcome! I’m Katie and this blog was initially created to document my recovery from a traumatic brain injury in March 2015, from a holistic perspective. I wanted to share coping mechanisms and techniques that I had learnt along the way to help other people, recovering from similar experiences and injuries.
Following this, I realised that actually, the activities that I was using to cope, were things I’ve always been interested in anyway. Namely yoga, healthy eating, journaling, mindfulness and meditation- I just hadn’t explored them in any real depth. Having a severe injury meant that I had to start getting serious about taking care of myself psychologically, emotionally and physically. Brain injury or not, at some point in our lives there is going to be a time when we need to focus on taking care of ourselves, in the best possible way.
With this in mind, I plan to update this blog monthly with what I am doing to aid my recovery and what I am researching within the realm of holistic health. I would like to make clear that I am no advocate on TBI recovery, nor am I am qualified therapist of any discipline. This blog will solely document my experiences and what has worked for me, the aim being to inspire and help other people.
