I have always struggled with the winter months. Every year when October comes round I get a horrible feeling, and I think oh no, not again! The dark mornings and dark evenings can really take their toll on me. I struggle with the rain (probably shouldn’t live in Scotland) and I just hate the general lack of natural daylight. I have tried different things to try and make me feel better. Nothing has ever really helped. The whole winter is a big, big struggle. Some mornings I don’t even want to get out of bed. The least little thing can have me in tears. My eating habits can completely change. One day I can feel like all I want to eat is junk food and then another day I can’t even face food and don’t eat. I am super irritable and feel a sense of hopelessness.
I felt enough was enough! I am probably going to feel like this every winter so I need to face it and do something to help it. This is when I got in touch with Davie at Davie and DMC. He made me feel so comfortable and he listened to every word I said. It felt easy talking to him and it felt great being able to open up. He completely understood how I was feeling, and he taught me about why and how I was feeling that way. He was able to give me a number of different techniques to allow me to take control of my life.
It can still be difficult for me during the winter, that’s never going to go away, and some days I can still feel some or all of what I have described above, but I can now manage it in a completely different way. I can make that choice to try and make myself not feel that way and to be honest with the Davie and DMC tools I can feel great most days. I can completely transform my day, week or month. I can recognise why I am feeling a certain way and now I know how to deal with it. It completely works for me. Going to Davie and DMC has changed my life. I now have the correct knowledge and understanding.
It hasn’t just helped with my winter problems. Some of the techniques can be transferred to other parts of my life. I now feel more confident, happy, motivated, strong and accountable in all aspects of my life. I honestly couldn’t recommend Davie and DMC enough. One of the things that I have learnt is if there is a problem then let yourself realise it, and go do something about it.
If you want to make a change then just do it! With the help of Davie and DMC you will become a better more knowledgeable person who has made a life changing choice!
