    What have you gained?

    Getting interested in mental health and practicing mental health exercises and mindfulness has easily been the greatest gift I could have ever given myself. It's allowed me to not compare the best in others with the worst in myself, let go of anger, slow down, enjoy peace and quiet, and let life flow. What have mindfulness, therapy, or mental health exercises done for you?

    ~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

    Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

    Is honey okay for me to consume a few times a week?

    Hey, everyone. I hope you’re all okay and keeping warm.

    I was just wondering… Is a little bit of honey a few times a week okay? I really enjoy peanut butter and honey sandwiches or toast. It’s helpful when I feel like I really want something sweet to eat.

    As a bit of a background, my last HBA1C in August(ish) was 62. I’m doing around 2-3hours of brisk walking a week and whenever I’ve had my blood sugar randomly tested, it’s always been between 4 and 8. I take slow release Metformin, Semaglutide and Dapagliflozin. I don’t have to test my blood sugar regularly anymore.

    I don’t use much of it. Maybe a teaspoon’s worth in a peanut butter sandwich and a little dollop on my peanut butter on toast. And I don’t have it every day.

    What do you think? Thank you all in advance. Stay safe! And stay warm!
