Sun, stress, anxiety

This post comes to you from my very empty, covered, community pool. It’s crazy to think how drastically life has changed in the last 3 months. This has been a hard time for everyone. It is especially difficult for those of us with anxiety. It took me at least 20 minutes to muster up the courage to come sit outside (and no one is even out here). It took fifteen minutes of getting over what will people think and five minutes of stressing over what I’d wear out there (if I’m being realistic more like 10 mins).

With so much uncertainty going on around me, my anxiety is at an all time high. I’ve come up with my own ways to manage it over the years but all my normal tricks aren’t covering it. I’ve been exercising like crazy and trying not to eat my feelings (key word trying). I signed up for a virtual race to keep me focused and set on a goal! But I need more. I’ve been trying to come up with what else to do. What have others been doing?

Here’s me on one of my many walks/runs per day! Reppin our new hats and my first half marathon tee!

Dealing with Anxiety

4/26/20 – Courtney Sue

This is an extremely uncertain time. One day I was travelling for work and the next everyone was told to pack up their desk and work from home for the foreseeable future. Trying to adjust to this new way of life has been a challenge. It is especially challenging for a person with anxiety to deal with so many uncertainties. I have been trying to channel that into exercise. I am so thankful that my little Olly is always up for a run or a walk. He LOVES to run and is getting better about keeping pace. He keeps me motivated and makes sure we always go out for some sort of exercise, and I am so thankful because I ALWAYS feel better after. Lately, I’ve had a lot more anxiety and these runs and walks aren’t enough. How is everyone else coping with their anxiety and stir crazy feelings?
