Anxiety level: 8. Definitely better than yesterday, with it being my first day back, but also definitely feeling being thrown back into the swing of things.
Yesterday was my first day back at work and I only took one of my "as needed" Xanax, which is awesome! Fortunately, it was a very quiet day in the office and I was allowed to just sit at my desk and catch up, which was greatly appreciated. As an introvert with anxiety problems, being alone and left to my tasks is when I thrive, especially when they are creative tasks :)
Speaking of creativity, and doing things one at a time, I'm trying something new:
- At least 10 minutes of creative expression a day (painting, crafting, crocheting, HTML-ing, whatever).
- At least 10 minutes of physical activity a day (meandering, yoga, running, stretching, just something).
- At least 10 minutes of sole-ly me time to do whatever I want without input from anyone else, and without any "shoulds" hanging over my head.
What would be your "just ten minues, once a day?"
