Welcome back to crazy little things! I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not, well that is ok too because you don’t have to be ok all the time as you are only human. It’s Friday and I’m looking forward to the weekend for one main reason, sleep! Honestly, I just want to curl up under my duvet and let my dreams take over for a while.
My boyfriend is away in a stag do this weekend and with sounding like I can’t function without him, I have been stressing about not having him around because I have been low lately and he always there to help me. I am seeing some friends tomorrow which will be great and this is just another way of proving to myself that I am strong and I can do this!
So today’s tip of the day –
Have a break, have a kit-kat!
I am so guilty of ignoring the signs mind an body is telling me to take a break. I get to a point then where I am so overly tired and grumpy and want to eat my body weight in chocolate and crisps to comfort me. Sometimes when we find ourselves running on fumes, we end up pushing forward even more in a hope that feeling will do away. That feeling grows though and we end up creating a bigger problem for ourselves. For me, my anxiety gets triggered my mood lowers and my comfort eating gets out of control. We need to see that it is ok to take a break and it is necessary for us to be able to recharge the batteries and move us forward instead of back.
So if you find yourself tired, grumpy and a little hungry like me, take some time to see to those needs so those needs don’t create a bigger problem later on. Having a mental illness like bipolar like myself, means I am highly sensitive to changes within my mood so taking a break once and a while has such a positive effect on my mental health.
Take care all,
