The one thing that can drive a diabetic crazy is the routines you go through every day and week to maintain your health.
If you think about your diet , and how you follow it religiously, it can become frustrating to find healthy food choices that you can enjoy. There are some healthy alternatives you can enjoy. I’ll give you an example. My breakfast choices are usually eggs or oatmeal. Last night I was in the supermarket and thought to myself I haven’t had pancakes in so long, and I wanted to see if there were sugar free and low carb options. I didn’t find pancakes, but instead I found whole grain waffles and a syrup made from Stevia and Monk fruit. When I read the carbs on the waffle box they lower than the whole wheat English muffin I usually enjoy on weekends. The stevia blueberry syrup was a good compliment to them. Once in a while, while in the supermarket you can find a healthier alternative to your usual menu.
The other new thing to try would be looking to improve your job, health and outlook. The most important thing to help your mental health is to feel confident in your ability to create positive changes in your life. So exercise a little more, spend more time with friends and family,find a job that challenges you more , and that lets you do what you like. I’m always looking for a job that I could help my fellow diabetics with. Don’t be afraid to take chances. As diabetics we’re always challenged everyday with our health, and maintaining a healthy A1C. So surround yourself with positive people, who will support you.
Stay healthy and safe!
