Self-care is keeping things simple on difficult days
In stark contrast to yesterdays high, today I feel low, uneasy and incredibly anxious. I had a Skype call this morning, phone calls always make me anxious, video calls even more so! I thought this was the reason but the anxiety remained after the call.
It can be so hard sometimes to accept how I feel, especially when there is no apparent cause. I’m so happy, I’m dizzy with new relationship fuzzy feelings, and yet here I am today feeling awful. Urg.
It could all be down to my thyroid still, my levels are due to be re taken soon. It also could be a bit of a come down from all the highs Ive been feeling. However, I have learnt that at times like this, trying to work out why, is not always helpful. Instead, its best to move into acceptance, practice self-love and simplify my day.
Today’s self-care then, was to cancel all but the most important tasks I had to do today and remind myself that this will pass.
