Hey, guess what? You made it through another tough day! Go you! :D
Not gona lie today I almost hospitalized myself because I was SOOO overwhelmed with anxiety and was cycling bad , but after a lot of talking and self reflecting I decided I will wait to do an outpatient program because I don’t need to be fully hospitalized I wasn’t in an immediate crisis state. The fact that I could recognize it starting is a great sign, and being hospitalized gives me great anxiety itself because I am so scared of being trapped somewhere and I’ve had rocky experiences in the past. My mom took me to Walmart and I went on a book shopping spree and deleted all social media except this one. Tumblr is the least toxic form in my opinion. The most self healing. I have NO IDEA which book I want to get started on first, I might read the Psychology Today magazine first but if anyone has already read any of these and has a suggestion on which one I should start with or if anyone wants me to read a certain one first so I can give a review of the sorts let me know!!
Growing up the only thing I would get in trouble for was staying up til 2 am to finish a book, going back to my old ways 🥰📚✨🧿
“The way I see it”
I go through life in robot mode
I’ve never truly felt completely whole
When I can’t breathe,
And that is why I haven’t spoke
I go through life through
Then I realized how much times passed
In my dreams
And now today I feel
All I can do is be mean
I don’t miss it but I do
The stinging that just grew
I’ve cried today
But every good artist does
Blood sweat and tears to claim
“What is ours”
Hopefully I can believe
But truthfully I live through the pain I see
I can’t control anything
So now I must sail away
To another day
With another way…
How our weekend is looking 🥰
The random letter I rolled today was N for Nature! I swear I’m not just cheesing it when I say I think this is best fit for Aizawa. I’m using a different hero for each of these self care techniques!
In a world ruled by technology we often forget about the clarity and serenity one can only find in nature. Venturing out into the wilderness — or just interacting with other living things that are separate from humanity— can help remind us that the world is far bigger than ourselves. Our problems may also seem a bit smaller when compared to the overwhelming majesty of nature.
As the largest city in the world, it might surprise you to learn that Tokyo is home to some of the world’s most magnificent natural wonders. Japanese culture has encouraged harmony with nature long before those in the west realized how important it was to our mental and physical well being.
Many of Tokyo’s wonderful escapes are available for both tourists and citizens to visit for free.
Shouta Aizawa makes sure to take advantage of this valuable resource whenever he can.
His favorite place to visit is Okutama; a beautiful town on the western side of Tokyo where he can escape the hustle and bustle of city life. The sounds of gently flowing water and the lush, green surroundings do wonders to cleanse his weary mind. Fishing is his preferred leisure activity when he makes a day of his visit. When he’s caught enough to eat, he grills them up and has a seat on the riverbank, enjoying a healthy meal while he soaks up the scenery and watches (the surviving) fish swim by.
Although he is a very obvious introvert, from time-to-time Shouta enjoys attending the “woodland therapy” program hosted in the town. No matter how we try and escape it, humans are social creatures. And even though it can be considered a bit touristy, he likes to go on these retreats because it’s a way to get his human interaction in a rather controlled and quiet setting. Stargazing is his favorite group activity. It’s hard to see the stars with the bright lights of the city. Though, he does thoroughly enjoy group yoga as well- it’s silent, helps his body meet the heavy demands he places on it, and it’s a perfect way to destress.
The best part of it all?
There are bugs in the forest. Hizashi can’t get him there.
Thank you for reading!
Although Eastern cultures were way ahead of the game, western cultures have finally begun to realize the importance of nature in our lives. Research has shown that spending more time in natural surroundings reduces symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. You can get little bits of green by buying yourself a house plant, setting your work space near a window, or taking a walk outside as often as you can.
I don’t think I can be as dedicated as Aizawa, but I know I’ll be making sure to spend more time in nature from here on out.
spent the day today at the record shop. picked up some new vinyls and other things that would make me happy. it very important to love on yourself.
I slept most of the day. I’m still recovering from the long road trip on Tuesday.
Full days seem to set me back but I planned for that and knew I’d need extra rest. ✔
I felt good most of that 12 hour round trip, except for 3 different brief flare-ups of all the symptoms cycling, but they came and went pretty quick - and I planned in extra time for breaks.
Self care is key. ❤ It took me about 3 days to bounce back after the same road trip last Friday, and I’m finally feeling good again after lots of rest again this week.
I got up around 3pm and my daughter made me this plate of sausage & eggs. 🥰 🍳
I woke up feeling inspired this morning, before I crashed again. 😅 I’ve learned to work with the cycles and do what I can when I can, and rest when I need to - which is way better than being stressed and frustrated. 👍
I miss my fast paced hyper productive work days and my active lifestyle, but right now I’m practicing PATIENCE and focused on recovery. ❤
When I feel good, I feel GREAT. Other times I’m congested all over again or just totally wiped out.
This is life with post-viral syndrome or an immune system disorder.
They’re still trying to figure out “long covid” - but for now, a huge number of people are just having to figure out how to get through their day, one day at a time.
It’s the same for most people right now I think, sick or well - “pandemic fatigue” is huge (too).
This virus has had such a huge impact on so many layers of our lives.
It’s okay if you get stressed, exhausted, discouraged, disappointed, frustrated. That’s totally normal. This is HARD stuff.
What works for me is PATIENCE (yes, it takes mindful practice), journaling, and focusing forward.
To help my daughter with it, we’re making a list of all the things we CAN do. ✔
It helps to find things that light you up, things you can get excited about and look forward to. 💯‼️❤
Even little things… because sometimes those little things ARE the big things. 🌟
At the very least I try to do at least ONE thing every day that makes me SMILE. Checking that box keeps me going. ✅
p.s. It might snow here ❄ so if I feel up to it, I want to go see a snow covered waterfall in the morning. 💦🥰
Got h!gh and played in some makeup 😋🥰 just hyping myself up 🤣
Sometimes self care is violently lip-syncing to Bohemian Rhapsody in your room at 1 in the morning.
Happy Friday 🍒
My personality attracts people because I’m authentic,but soon it scares them away because I demand authenticity as well.
