Welcome, Warriors! ❤

Hi there! My name is Hanne Arts and a I'm twenty-two year old student, author, YouTuber, and recovery warrior. I started writing when I was about seven, and I began incorporating some of my own mental health struggles into my works from the age of thirteen. I published my debut novel, JUST PERFECT, in December 2014, followed by its sequel, RED RIBBONS, in October 2017.

They helped me (re)learn what my body needed to be happy and energized. However, they sometimes also made me feel stuck as I turned them into self-set 'maximum' allowances...

Eating like my Triathlete Dad, Dealing with "Setbacks" & Travel Vlog

Whenever I ran into difficulties during my recovery from anorexia, I shut down. I could barely eat, and every morsel I managed to force down my throat was one that was definitely over-thought and guilt-inducing. Today, this is different. Hence, I am taking you with me on a day in the life -- hectic travel day edition.
