My anxiety is making a bit of a comeback, with school starting again.
Trying so hard to keep things in perspective.
It’s easy to get carried away or feel like you have so much to do. But honestly, when you let yourself feel that way, you get nothing done. And nothing bogs you down more than feeling unsuccessful or unproductive.
Anxiety seems to attack me the most in the mornings or when I don’t have a plan.
When I don’t have a to do list or plan to achieve my goals, I feel easily overwhelmed. On the other hand, sometimes having an extended to do list also makes me feel worried. You have to find a medium.
Formulate realistic goals. Make your plans centered around small steps or goals that you are actually motivated to do. Need to do something that you don’t want to do? Make it enjoyable for yourself by creating rewards for yourself. Do the task with a friend, or watch your favorite tv show after. Make it feel like it’s worth doing.
If I’m feeling negative or anxious, I can easily say that I achieved nothing this morning.
But that’s not true!
I bought most of my textbooks and shopped around for the best deals. (I saved a little over $20 by not buying from the university bookstore).
I bought some cheap tickets to a play and made plans with my friend to go 🙂
I ran into two friends this morning walking around campus and even swing danced with one of them in the middle of the road.
I signed up for different assignment in one of my classes.
I wrote down some due dates in my agenda, trying to start the term organized!
I ate breakfast, and I’m planning on eating lunch soon.
Readers, sometimes we just need to take a step back to be able to see things a little clearer. Blogging for me is such a godsend.
