Finding it a bit easier to do two days in a row unless anything significant has happened, which it hasnt. Im back to doing my day to day battling which I still need to work on.
Cos, my goodness, sometimes it feels overwhelming to do all the stuff that self care is to me.
Balancing that with freelance/self motivated work can be a bit of a confusing mess
Sometimes I really struggle with fitting in even 10 mins of mindfulness which I know doesnt get rid of my anxiety but does help keep the perspective I need. I need to keep the flat in order because untidiness makes my head feel untidy and looking after my family is really important to me. (Its where my usually overthinking can be useful especially when it comes to food shopping and meal plans. Which I forgot to do this week 😣) Dug also requires at least one walk a day and sometimes two now that spring is bringing lighter mornings. And the exercise does help me!
There just seems a lot to do and Im feeling knackered just from the basics!
So Im taking another proactive step. Ive been introduced to Bullet Journalling recently and Im trying to get that to work with me and my head and also make it not such a stress or just another task to do! It is pretty helpful to put all my thoughts in one place as and when they come and keep a track of my achievementJust a shame I cant make it as pretty as a lot of journals I see out there!!

Ive also done a self referral for some local talking therapy. Even though I have a brilliant psychiatrist on my side, I always feel he deals with the big problems and what I need is more help with the day to day and developing maybe a kinder routine in my life. Even though Ive been feeling so much better, I want to build on the recovery Ive made and not just let it waver.
