The struggle is Real

Tuesday, April 14, 2020

I am struggling with this surreal reality of what is going on in this world while also fighting my inner battles with food and self worth. Everything feels surreal. I work in a doctor's office, not on the front lines, but it can still be a little stressful at times. I still worry about bringing illness home to my kids and husband. I am also plagued with trying to find motivation to workout and eat healthy as I struggle from anxiety and depression. Not looking for pity just wanting to put things on paper and get my thoughts out of my head. I still have things to be thankful for at this point like my family and health. I pray the battle gets easier.

    emoticon These are stressful times and stress kills all energy, at least for me. I agree with meditation ~ I listen to something on You Tube for 10 minutes at night before going to sleep. It really calms my mind allowing me to sleep better ~ the best thing for helping stress for me is a good nights sleep. Stay safe emoticon

    Well you are doing the first step in just admitting this new normal is difficult for you. There are a few things that have helped me. Maybe they could also work for you. I have always prayed and still do. Now I have added meditation. I am far from good at it. My mind wants to wonder off, but I keep bringing it back to calm. I have noticed later in that day, I actually feel more relaxed and calm. I also walk a few evenings with my neighbor, but it was too cold here yesterday, so I invited her over and we did a cardio workout to old 60s music. Hang in there! I am pulling for you! emoticon
