Seriously, can @mariekondo please come tidy up my head space. Here’s something real : sometimes I get insanely bad mood swings and I find myself caught up in this perpetual loop of toxic thinking: self doubt , feelings of inadequacy , looking at everything through a lens of negativity . Can anyone else relate ? .
I’m sharing because mental health is very important to me and I recognize the ridiculous stigma surrounding it . In reality , conversations like these should be talked about as freely as any other topic surrounding health and wellness . .
Getting caught up in the chatter can make the problems even worse. Once I recognize where my thought patterns are headed, I know it’s time to take action ! .
Some things I do to get out of my head:
1. GET OUTSIDE . I cannot stress this enough . Sometimes just some fresh air and a change of environment is enough to cut through the fog .
2. MUSIC. Noise has a significant effect on our moods . So let the good vibes roll .
3. COOK. Creative outlet. Channeling energy. Expressing emotions through a healthy medium .
Sometimes , these things work immediately . Other times , I have to sit with these emotions and just ride it out ! So this is me, forcing a smile- getting through it . .
Anyone else have some tips to share ?? I’m being vulnerable because I wanna get this conversation started ! .
