Today, I’m just trying to keep calm, cool, and focus on the nice things. I’ve got a book to finish, I’ve got games and other media to amuse me, then sun is shining… though the latter is hit or miss as to whether it’s nice! The main thing I hope to beat today is racing thoughts; I keep catching myself trying to mull on things that I know will drive my anxiety up. It’s maddening when that happens – I know to not do it, but that doesn’t stop it from happening. When I do notice, I do my best to take deep breaths and think of nothing, but brains are stubborn things. I’ll make it through like I always do, but I hope that with the earlier stated goal of laying off myself, I will be able to continue to have a bit of energy to dedicate to chasing off mind nasties and enjoy my day.
And obviously, hope you enjoy yours too!
