My favorite Aussie bird
Running during lock down has been my saving grace.
So I just got off the phone with the psychologist
- Write a pro and con list of your situation right now and hang it at your desk.
- Create a booklet of small travel ideas within nsw that you can research and do since this is more realistic and gives you something to hope toward
- Shake things up. Play loud music and have a dance party. Do something to raise your vibrations.
- For panic attacks, try taking rescue remedy or putting a rubber band on your wrist and lightly snapping it so it grounds you back to reality
- Listen to motivational podcasts
So you know I track my food through Noom, but did you know I also track my emotions?
Yup. Started last week.
This lock down has given me alot of time for reflection… maybe too much time. Regardless, I decided I will take the advice from my reflections and start tracking more things about myself.
Like I said, I want to get to the bottom of myself.
I want to see my patterns.
So I decided to use Daylio.
What I love about this app is I can put notes in it along with my emotions.
If I am sad, I can write why.
And it has graphs and stats and everything a nerdy girl like me needs.
And honestly the best part is, it reminds me of the good days.
It actually shows me how many good days I have had in a month.
So if I am stressed or feeling down, I can look back and say this is factually temporary and such a small percentage of your life because I know I have more good days than bad, I just don’t always remember them.
And if you have more bad days than good, I’d strongly encourage seeing a therapist or in my case I used Better Help. It’s an online therapy company so if you prefer not looking someone in the eye with all your trauma, you don’t have to.
Anyways, lots of love.
