Tip Not one thing

There is not one thing that causes an illness, but many factors over time; experiences, emotions, chemistry, distorted thoughts, decisions, reactions. There is not one thing that will help recovery, but many practices combined together over time; patience, small daily goals, drink water, eat healthy, self care, appreciation, going outside daily. Time, repetition, practice (not perfection), realize all the good of the day, things you see, smell, feel, hear. Trust that tomorrow will be better.
