It has been awhile since I posted, and I’m learning to not get on myself for not following through with everyone I make plans for. Just tell yourself it is okay. It is okay that you got McDonalds instead of a salad. It is okay that we spent a little more time watching the Disney channel. And it is definitely okay I wasn’t able to workout.
2020 was not the year I was planning for, and I know it wasn’t for anyone else either. I kept hearing how depression rates were up and people were really struggling with being home or not working or not getting a break from their spouses or kids. I felt all those things, and realized a couple months ago I was depressed.
Now I wasn’t diagnosed as such, but when you don’t eat for days and refuse to shower it is pretty obvious something isn’t right. I have been having to work really, really hard at improving my mood naturally. We been making lists of things I can do when I notice a change.
So, I’m back and hopefully we can all help each other learn techniques that improve how we feel. Not every day is perfect, but I am feeling much better than a few months ago. And I hope I can share with you what has helped me.
I would love to hear what you do when you feel like the blues are coming!
