I’m not sure why, but lately I’ve been feeling down.
I’ve been struggling with keeping up my eating plan, I’ve been struggling to get anything done at work (not ideal when you work to tight deadlines) and I’ve even been struggling in everyday tasks.
I’m low on energy, I’m low on happiness and I have absolutely no idea why, and no reason why.
I suppose it’s one of those things, these feelings can creep up on you sometimes when life seems to be going to quickly, you feel like you need to stop, even just for a day and catch up. Unfortunately life doesn’t work like that so when it all gets too much, you have to keep going anyway.
It’s that overwhelming feeling that you have gotten too far behind to snap back into normality, the routine. It’s that niggle in your chest, the tightening, the feeling of anxiety slipping into your head and your body.
I work in a high stress job. Sometimes, no matter how I try to fight it, it catches up and takes hold. Anxiety made me so sick once the doctor ordered a 2 week break! I never let it get to that point anymore but I’m feeling close at the moment. It feels almost like I’m holding out for something, for Christmas maybe, the holidays, a change in my life – something that will snap me out of it. But the one thing I’ve realised over time is that YOU are the only person and the only thing that will snap you out of it.
You need to breathe, you need to exercise, you need to talk to friends and family, you need to meditate, play with your dog, go for a walk and stop thinking so much.
Life is great, life is what you make it and life will not pause for you to work it all out. You need to roll with the punches and get back on the horse.
So that’s what I intend to do!
