Much of the time, when I'm focusing on thyroid disease, it's on the practical aspects of coping -- finding the right doctors, getting diagnosed, the best treatments, supplements, dietary changes, and so on. But I also believe very strongly that healing is not just about treating or "curing" a thyroid condition with drugs and surgeries. Our attitude, mindset, and the energy that we bring to dealing with our health challenges has an impact on the quality of our day-to-day life and our ability to cope with chronic illness. What activities or practices do you find most helpful in relaxing, staying mindful, keeping a hopeful and optimistic spirit, and achieving balance and healing in your everyday life?
