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?
