Today is the first day I’ve taken some low mood feelings to work. I really tried not to but the lethargy of these last few days is still hanging around. I didn’t sleep that well and woke up with a thumping headache. I did my my deep breathing and read motivational stuff AND did some boxercise exercises ALL before I left for work.
The drive to work felt a bit woolly. I had to shake my head to concentrate. By the time I got there my head was just empty. I couldn’t remember anything that I had done the week before. Questions asked of me were met with a blank look. Frantically searching the tiny memory bank that’s left….. nope… nothing. Empty!
Even looking stuff up and then not remembering the question. Woah.
So instead of winging about this I’m going to focus on the positives.
Here’s a sunset pic from last night. I actually watched one of my videos of the sea from yesterday to help clear my head.
I love how this beam of light shoots up from the sun as it sets.
Despite my lethargy I took Calaidh and Bhruic out for a walk and actually felt myself striding out and it actually rained!!!!
You know that’s got me thinking we haven’t had April Showers this year at all. Strange as it usually rains lots on and off in April.
So I’m home with my feet up and just read and article my friend Tracey sent me…. very interesting. It describes the time between depression and full flourishing, as languishing. The New York Times reported that it’s when you feel joyless and aimless.
Now that hits the nail on the head!! 🔨💅🏼 nope not that kind of nail…. hammer on the link below, it’s a short read but feels so true to me.
Covid mental health – languishing
Stay safe everyone 🔨🔨🔨
