It’s been a while (again) since I posted. Where does the time go? How has November gone already!
I have to be honest, right now I am in the midst of having no control! I’m not talking about anything serious, but I need to catch up on EVERYTHING; laundry, meal planning, cleaning, accounts, blog planning, Christmas planning. My BuJo has gone off the boil, I haven’t meditated for ages and I haven’t blogged as often as I wanted to. This really makes no sense as all three of those things help me deal with my anxiety. So this post is to selfishly help me. I am making a statement to you that by this time next week, I will have restored order to my ball-of-wool head, my house and my BuJo!
On the plus side, my anxiety has been pretty good. Nothing major to report. So despite this loss of control, my old nemesis hasn’t popped up to say Hi. That is definitely a good thing! I know though, that if I don’t get control, and if I start to feel overwhelmed by everything, that it will reappear. I surely don’t need any more of a motivation to get my head together than the thought of that.
So it starts now. I’ll finish my post. Then start my BuJo. Make a plan. Make some lists. Then I’ll report back next week. It’s not quite a “how to help anxiety” post this week. But in some ways it is. I know that if things aren’t in order and I don’t have clear lists and plans of what’s happening, I get overwhelmed and then I am more susceptible to anxiety. Maybe I’m actually learning about the superficial triggers of my anxiety.
Let me know if this post has been helpful to you or whether you can relate to it. I’ll let you know how in control I am next week.
