Day 68

Who can calm you down?

  • Not anyone, usually it takes me calming myself down with time and walking away from the situation. I mean in the past, my ex did a good job calming me down if I was upset but normally I don’t prefer others trying to calm me down because it makes me more anxious. I don’t get angry often enough where I would need someone to calm me down in the first place and I have learned to handle situations better since.

Day 23

Who or what keeps you calm?

  • In a perfect world, it would have been meditation but since I haven’t done that in awhile — oops! It would have to be my self control, knowing how to shut off and focus on breathing and allowing myself to relax — not always easy, but it helps when I have music as well and I can tune out certain thoughts or just listen to a song and really get involved with the lyrics. 
What keeps all of you calm, or who?

Do you worry too much? How can you deal with this?

In the previous post I mentioned how I worry quite a bit about different things and it stems from anxiety & brings about anxiety or a sense of feeling overwhelmed. I do believe I worry too much, and I don’t particular enjoy it. As of now, I have been taking part in meditation, but also, reading a good books has helped & music helps to get my thoughts out/ at the same time doesn’t quiet my brain when I am worried (so its a positive and negative) but for sure meditation & reading a book has been helpful, allows me to escape for a while and focus on being more at peace and calmness. I also believe my fear of losing routine or not finishing everything I planned for the day causes to me worry because then I have to think about when I can play catch up, so I don’t get too far behind. It’s a cycle, I am trying to teach myself that it is okay to go off the beaten path sometimes, and that we can only do what we can do, and not worry about what doesn’t get finished, because it will at some point. 

What helps you deal with being worried too much? or is this not an issue for you. Feel free to share in the comments, & make sure to follow, share and like!
