Living with Anxiety?

Wow... I woke up feeling super emotional and sad today.... I haven’t felt like that in a while. I wonder what I’ve been dreaming about and consider a duvet day... Then I look out the window and I remember my action plan for the days when I felt like this everyday. I ask myself what I need in my life to make me feel less anxious and sad and the solutions. 

•Fresh Air - get outside whatever the weather. 
•Time with the dogs - as above. 
•A clear head - 15 minutes of yoga with @lesleyfightmaster
•Good nutrition - eggs and Jolly veggie juice for breakfast.
•A sense of community - arrange to see some really good friends.
•A good nights sleep - THAT IS IT!!!!! I stayed up til 2am working on a really exciting film of the allotment and not enough sleep resulted in emotion this morning probably from adrenal fatigue.

BOOM!! I don’t feel sad anymore!!!

It’s so good to know how you feel and why. I feel so grateful for the last three hard years recovering from my anxiety and learning to manage my autoimmune issues. As now I can usually discover the reason for feeling sad and it’s usually a lack of self care!! Sleep was key to my recovery. So I must go to bed earlier tonight. #goodtohaveaplan


A little shout out to @chasinglobsters today! We’ve worked hard this year to get to discover my self care needs and to make myself feel worthy of them! Thank you gorgeous, love you! 

Thank you for reading the Jolly Journal - I really appreciate your interest and hope it's of value to you. I am dyslexic and for years this stopped me writing because of the fear of getting it wrong. Now I am embracing my fear so I appreciate your understanding if you see a mistake I have missed. Thank you! - Polly x
