All about the mind

Dear Anxiety,

Do you reckon you could take a break sometime? I mean, I know you like being around and don’t appreciate it when I am actually getting along all right in life but seriously, what’s with bothering me almost every day? It’s always something. Something trivial to something big. But it has to be something. It’s no wonder I love sleeping. That’s like the only time I’m not dealing with you. And when I’m seeing clients I guess. Provided they are not suicidal. Because if they are, I hear you laughing with sadistic pleasure at being back. I would really and truly like a break from you. To not worry about all the zillion things about the future. To not feel nauseous. To not catastrophise and awfulise. To not think about the worst-case scenarios. At the moment, I cannot afford to go to the gym which used to help me manage you a lot better….I think I managed to tire you out. Don’t you have other people to bother? Why do you love hanging out with just me?

So please….I beg you…leave me alone!!!!

Until next time,

    Is there another form of exercise you can do if that helps? Free tai chi in the park? Lunchtime walks? Chin ups in the local playground? Running up and down stairs at work?

    I could go for a walk on the days I don’t have classes in the evening…and probably should. :/ I might start from tomorrow…it’s really getting to me this time around…

    I can’t sleep enough to get peace. I have dreams and wake up often.

    Life is simple not easy, however, worrying makes simple things more difficult.
    Remember you can make struggle fun too ! K.i.S.S – Keep it simple and stupid !

    Nothing helps with anxiety more than exercise. Friends come second. Try spending time doing either….from anxious person to other, 😛

    I have had that as well but more often than not when I am anxious, my body just wants to shut down and I sleep! When I was at uni it was not helpful coz I would stress out about an assignment and instead of working on it would sleep! I noticed that pattern and worked on it after a year….

    Easiest way for me to sleep in college was to open a philosophy book. I hoped to learn through osmosis. Did not work, though.
