A few hours ago, Joyce Omondi disclosed how she had been dealing with among other things the death of her loving father, who passed on in June this year.
The beautiful gospel singer disclosed this in a long post on her social media. She explained that she started doing early morning exercises so she could distract herself from thinking about the inevitable loss of a loved one.
“Believe it or not, one of the ways I’ve found helpful in dealing with the psychological, emotional, and physical turmoil of the last few months is early morning workouts. At a time when listening to music, talking to people and even prayer was just really hard, I desperately needed to find an outlet and some sort of way to build mental resilience,” she explained.
She went on to say that watching the sun come up as she exercised was also therapeutic for her. She added that when she struggled she would look up in the sky knowing that he dad was looking down on her;
“I wanted to do home-based workouts this time and scheduled them for early in the morning to try and set a good tone for the rest of the day. Watching the light break through the sky was therapeutic in itself, and when I’d really struggle to get through a routine, I’d look up at the sky and tell myself that my Daddy is looking down on me, cheering me on like he always would. And then voila! I’d browse the workout."
She added that despite the considerable steps she had made, it would be a long time before she regained her full constitution both physically and mentally.
“It’s still a long journey, but I’m so glad to see myself stronger not just spiritually, mentally and emotionally, but physically too,” she explained.
