While journaling, meditating, nourishing my body, doing yoga/pilates, and having a routine help me maintain homeostasis in my body and mind, the following help me cope when the world outside is turbulent and I can feel it start to impact me:
We often don’t live like our authentic selves in our day to day because of societal programming, but society thrives on people who are different. These people are living as their authentic selves unapologetically.
As we go into the holiday season, it’s important to remember that while it’s the season of giving, we have to give to ourselves as well. Focusing inward is my favorite part of my routine, and I make sure to go through my mental checklist every once and awhile to make sure I’m acting on my goals and promises to myself.
By reframing anxiety, we can learn to be at peace with our emotions and walk through them instead of fighting them.
