Time to repair?

Many of you will know 2017 has not been the easiest year of my life. In fact it would definitely be up there with the most challenging. When negativity, stress or if you are unlucky enough both enter your life you can be left feeling stressed. I ,personally, am a naturally highly strung person and I am not ashamed to admit I have given into anxiety this year.
In no way will you ever get over, the hurt of any such event but there are definite ways to help improve your feeling and get back on track. These few things are my own feelings. They are things I do when I need to take stock of my life. I hope they help.
As previously stated, I am a little bit of a stress head. I tend to let a lot of things get to me. This year I broke up with someone who I love, yet didn’t love me back. I tried to look for any bit of calm I had in my life.
When I look back now I can clearly see that three things in my life bring me a sense of calm.
|Recently, I went on a much needed trip away with my mum.|
· Books- I love to hide in a book. Getting whisked away with a story, full of romance and whimsy- perfect. Whatever is going on in my life, I always reach for a book and forget whatever is going on.
· Friends – I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I would be nothing without my friends. I keep my friendship group small, yet I know one call and they would always be there for me. I hope they know I would move mountains for them, too.
· Blogging - it’s cheesy but I don’t care. My blog is just that: MY BLOG. I don’t think I have ever or will ever be as passionate about anything else.
Yes, really. Something as simple as a few nights sleep can really help rejuvenate your mind. When times get tough it is incredibly hard to switch off. But when it is possible, take advantage.
I am arguably the laziest person in the world, so yes, this is a little bit rich coming from me. Yet, exercising has been proven time and time again to help when anxiety arises. Something as simple as a walk in the woods or a run around your local lake can really give the mind a little clarity.

When you’re ready- not when you are told too.
People expect a lot from others. When felt pushed, forced situations can be made even harder than necessary. Take your time and don’t jump the gun. No one can ever or should ever tell you when you are ready to do something- we all move in different ways.
