Hi! I'm Riley, I'm Australian, 20, studying Nutritional Medicine at University, have been modelling on and off for 6 years and I've just come home from exploring Europe. This is my visual diary and personal journey to health, happiness and fitness.
Am I vegan? A raw foodist? I'm not into labels - so, when people ask me that question, I simply reply: "I eat what I want, when i want it." My only rule is: If I don't enjoy eating it, it doesn't make me feel nourished or zaps me of energy; I don't eat it. I'm not trying to live forever, I just want to feel as good as I can while i'm alive.
I want to inspire happiness, determination, self love, acceptance and intelligence.

She likened having depression to having a broken bone. You can’t work. You can’t sleep, you can’t get out of bed. You can’t do the things you used to. The difference is that everyone see’s it. They ask what happened, they see the broken bone, sign the cast, help you walk up the stairs. The world doesn’t see depression and anxiety like that. They think you can still work, you don’t need treatment, you don’t need time to heal. Come out with us! Enjoy life! Exercise, surround yourself with good people and just be happy! We feel so guilty for feeling like this and have always thought that if we just sort our lives out we can make it work. Write list’s, eat right, think healthy thoughts, study, work, be positive. She said, “If you had broken your arm, no time would be spared in getting you help. How is this different?” 

She said, "No amount of positive thinking will heal a broken leg. Mental illness is still illness, just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there, that you don’t need or deserve help. You can’t just positive think depression and anxiety away, no matter how much you want to. Some days you just have to let yourself feel it."
