So not gonna lie, the last couple weeks have been extremely stressful. There’s nothing detrimental to my health or well-being, but the anxiety is real, the stress is real, the nervous-to-the-point-of-nausea is real.
I’m normally really good at staying positive, but even positive people hit their limits sometimes 🙋🏻♀️
SO, my point in saying this is to share some of the extra techniques I’m using to stay grounded, in case they may be helpful to you:
1. I visualize the worst case scenario, and think through how I’ll build back from that. It’s a pragmatic way of convincing myself I will be OK.
2. I’m writing and reading a lot. Journaling, creative writing, fond memories…reading House of Gucci…these activities are temporary escapes from things.
3. I’m not drinking much (gasp I know) to make sure I’m sleeping as well as possible. Unfortunately even a little alcohol negatively impacts your sleep.
If you’re going through similar stuff, are there other helpful techniques you’re using?
HANG IN THERE!! We will get through it and be OK ❤️
