Let’s just say it like it is…isolation was fun for a bit. Having a week off work like a surprise holiday was exciting. But now…Anxiety levels are rising and the fear of the unknown is knocking loudly at the door. How to stay positive in times of high anxiety.
Sitting on my lounge staring out the window whilst listening to my kids arguing in the next room, husband working in the spare room and…My mother living with us, the anxiety in these times of isolation kind of reminds me of a cheetah.
One moment you’re feeling fine doing your thing when suddenly out of nowhere it pounces and takes over. You want to vomit, cry and hide in a hole hoping it will disappear.
Then other days you open your eyes check out the clock next to your bed and it’s only 2:15 am and you…Are freaking out.
We all cope with anxiety in different ways. Some drink, some eat their feelings others get angry and all of that’s ok for a day or so. Your feelings are valid. However, at some point, it’s time to slow down your runaway feelings train and take back control.
